Trust. Loyalty. Family. Was the tangled web of mafia life. We grew up together. Me, Eden, my brother Tristian. He was always the safe bet, the sure thing, the good guy. And me? Well, I was the Casanova, the killer who flirted with anyone and anything, breaking Eden’s heart again and again. We both loved her. Mind. Body. Soul. Until I gifted her to my brother as if she meant nothing, when she meant everything to me. Tristian was safer. Better. Could give her the life I never would be able to. But things changed. We changed. My only goal was to protect her, making her hate me in return. Except once my brother wasn’t standing in between us anymore, I decided… It was my turn to claim what had always been MINE to begin with.

I waited until I was inside the elevator.
Until I was alone.
Just me and my fragile heart.
I watched the numbers light up as the elevator ascended. And as the distance between Romeo and myself grew, I told my heart we would be okay because we had Tristian.
I was lucky right?
So damn lucky.
And yet, two tears escaped. Tears of anger. Sadness. Tears he didn’t deserve in the first place. Tomorrow I would become Tristian Sinacore’s wife—tonight…
I would drink Romeo Sinacore away.
I exhaled in relief the minute the elevator stopped on my floor and I found my room. I pulled my key card from my purse and tapped it against the door. It clicked open and I was finally able to breathe as I kicked off my heels and went straight to the bar in my suite.
The alcohol was only temporary, but it would at least numb the catastrophe of Romeo. It had been one thing after another. Like he couldn’t help but continuously bruise my heart until it bled. I’d reached my boiling point. Instead of pouring a glass, I grabbed the bottle and made my way out onto the balcony to drink away the memory of him. I don’t know how much time went by when I heard a knock on my door.
Moments later, Romeo’s voice echoed through the room. “Red, open the door.”
I shouldn’t have walked back inside. I shouldn’t have let my heart guide my mind.
Have opened that goddamn door.
NICUnurse’s Review of Mafia Casanova by Rachel Van Dyken and M. Robinson
Mafia Casanova is the first collaborative project from Rachel Van Dyken and M. Robinson. I’ve been a Rachel Van Dyken fan (megafan?!) for years, but I’ve never read anything by M. Robinson. After reading this book, that’s going to have to change…and soon! But be forewarned, there IS a cliffhanger at the end of the book, so if you hate those, you might want to wait until the next book releases. Which is a painfully long time to have to wait for someone as curious as I am!
NICUnurse’s Rating: I’m a huge RVD mafia romance fan, so I knew that even though I had never read anything written by M. Robinson, there was no way she would team up with someone who was not of the same caliber mafia romance writer as she is. But there’s always that little voice that whispers, “What if?” As in, what if it’s just not as good? What if it is awful? Well…I’ve officially told that little voice to scram! Because it was fantastic! Mafia Casanova was one of those books that I knew going in that I wouldn’t be able to put it down. It’s full of anger. Hurt. Betrayal. And it’s overflowing with angst. So much friggin’ angst. But let’s be honest. Would it BE mafia without angst? I think not. Being an RVD fan, I was so sure that I’d be able to figure out which author wrote which part of the book, but I can’t say that I’m really sure I’m right as to who wrote what parts. So what does that mean? It means the book flowed seamlessly, never feeling choppy or disjointed.
My heart shattered for Eden, over and over and over again, and I wanted to hate Romeo. OK, there were parts of the story where I actually did hate him. But Romeo is so much more than he seems in the beginning. He’s full of layers upon layers. So if you think he doesn’t have any redeeming qualities, don’t give up on him, and don’t give up on the story. Just keep reading. I promise you, it will be worth it.
To sum it all up, Mafia Casanova is an angsty, gut-wrenching, emotional rollercoaster. Which sounds scary, but just like real rollercoasters, you come out of the experience with such a high that you just want to experience it all over, and over, and over again.
I give Mafia Casanova by Rachel Van Dyken and M. Robinson 5 out of 5 propellers!
