Sometimes the line between good and bad simply depends which side you’re on… Good guys can have unsavory secrets, while so-called criminals can live by a code of ethics rivaling that of any law enforcement agency.

Bending the law for money, power, or revenge is one thing, but what if you’re bending it for your family—for love? Who would choose to become involved with a man who walks on the dark side… Some men will go to any lengths, legal or not, and make no apologies to protect their way of life and all they hold dear. But you don’t always choose who you love, and sometimes you just have to decide if you’re bold enough to risk it all and go along for the ride. Thirteen masterful authors come together to present Men of Mayhem. Compelling stories of loyalty and passion, love and lust, in which the moral and ethical lines are blurred, and call into question the notions of right and wrong. What could be more exciting than taking a leap of faith…and landing in the arms of the last man you’d expect—but the only one who truly makes you feel alive? What if your road to happiness leads to… Men of Mayhem

    Review For Cesare by Soraya Naomi. Loved this short intro into the Syndicate. A friends-to-lovers love story with a twist! It's a little mix of the Chicago Syndicate novels, but with other characters and this features the New York Syndicate. I liked the leads together and would like to see them in CS.

    Review "For Cesare" by Soraya Naomi I'm a huge fan of mafia stories with lots of romance and suspense in it, and this author's books always have that. I might love friends to lovers stories even more so when those two are combined, I'm a goner!!!! I enjoyed it so much that I'm kind of hoping the H/h show up in Chicago Syndicate series. *ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review* Review "For Cesare" by Soraya Naomi I'm a huge fan of mafia stories with lots of romance and suspense in it, and this author's books always have that.

This is a fun and intriguing short story found in the Men of Mayhem Anthology. I was gifted this story in return for an honest review. The story revolves around Madison Miller and Roman Caponelli. Madison runs the local wedding shop and Roman owns the luxurious event center. Madison has befriended one of her clients and after seeing signs of physical abuse on the young lady, convinces her to break her engagement and report the man to the police. Before the police can be notified, the young lady disappears. The young lady’s father, knowing that Roman is also involved with the local Mafia, asks him for his help in finding his daughter. Madison’s first encounter with Roman is at the local Java Shop where she accidentally christens him with her fresh cup of mocha latte with a shot of espresso. They are both in a rush and don’t even exchange names, just mutual apologies. Their next encounter is at the annual Snowflake Ball, which is being held at the event center that Roman owns. Roman is hoping to connect with the owner of the wedding shop to warn her that she may a target of the person responsible for Andrea’s disappearance. Believing the shop owner to be an older woman, he never dreams that Madison is the one he’s been searching for. The story becomes more intriguing as Roman and Madison’s attraction to each other grows. This story is very well thought out, with strong character development, and a smooth story line that draws the reader in from the first page on. The twists and turns of the story make it an exciting read. My only complaint is that I want to read more about Madison and Roman! It the rest of the stories in this anthology are as good as Madison’s Mobster, it will be a hit. Thanks Ginger, for another great read! The rest of the stories in this anthology are just as exciting and satisfying as Madison's Mobster. This is a fantastic group of authors, all of whom I will happily continue to read.

One Shot - when you fall in love with the enemy can you ever be free of the family ties? From opposing families Bri and Nico are attracted to one another but are tired of hiding their love from their families. Secrets and lies hold the key to their relationship...

Each story is a short and fast paced read that leaves you wanting to dive straight into the series they are part of. My TBR has grown exponentially! Men of Mayhem is one of the best collections of short stories this year. A five star blood and guts read.

    ARC provided by Soraya Naomi who wrote For Cesare. It gives you the perfect perspective of her style. She writes dark, mafia romance, where love and family are powerful. Men and women are capable of anything to protect or revenge their loved ones. It's a little mixture of her novels; For Fallon, For Luca and For Adriano (For Cam will release December 8th). I've read all 3 Chicago Syndicate books so far and I love her writing although, I have to be honest, some parts are sometimes hard to read for ARC provided by Soraya Naomi who wrote For Cesare.

    I LOVE mafia books and I have been looking forward to diving in to this collection of short stories. I have read several of the authors’ full-length books, while a few authors were new to me.

    I’m still in the process of reading this anthology but thought I’d leave a review of the stories I’ve already read. Infringe - JL Beck This is a bonus novella from the Kingpin Love Affair series. I haven’t read the other books, although they’ve been sitting on my Kindle, but I think it’s high time that I did! This novella sees Alzerro and Bree in married bliss with a child and, by the sounds of it, Alzerro is straight these days working for the FBI. However, although happy, Bree is worried that I’m still in the process of reading this anthology but thought I’d leave a review of the stories I’ve already read. Infringe - JL Beck This is a bonus novella from the Kingpin Love Affair series. I haven’t read the other books, although they’ve been sitting on my Kindle, but I think it’s high time that I did! This novella sees Alzerro and Bree in married bliss with a child and, by the sounds of it, Alzerro is straight these days working for the FBI. However, although happy, Bree is worried that they have fallen into boring domesticity and thinks their relationship is missing the spark of the early days, and pushes Zerro’s buttons to bring out the monster of old. It was a hot read and I’m guessing the earlier books will be rather dark, but I’m looking forward to diving into them, soon. Gian –Lisa Cardiff Love this author! This is the prequel to a story about Gian and Evangeline. Evangeline has just left her cheating fiancé. She’s broke, her acting/dancing career is on hold while she’s recovering from an ankle injury, and homeless. Her best friend, Carmela, asks her twin brother, who is the youngest capo in the Trassato crime family, to interview Evie for a job as his assistant. The two meet, without realising who the other is, in a nightclub and have a hot few minutes together. Later, when Evie goes back to Gian’s office to recover her handbag, she’s sees something that shatters her world and, in a dramatic turn of events, her life is suddenly turned upside down. I can’t wait to read their main story when it comes out next year! Enforcing Fate – Amy Rachiele This is also a prequel to a longer novel coming out next year and it was off to a steamy start! Meryl is a widow of two months and escaped to Chicago after her husband’s death. Alex sees her one night while he’s tending bar in a casino. A casino that is owned by the family that he works for – as an enforcer. Alex wants her – he’s already decided that she’s going to be his wife, in spite of the 9-year difference in their ages. After an amazing night together, Meryl overhears a conversation she shouldn’t, plus she receives personal news that has her reeling, and running away from Alex. Really enjoyed this story and the writing style of this new-to-me author, and I can’t wait for the full story next year! The rest of the authors in this anthology are also new to me, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the stories. **I received an ARC of this anthology from one of the participating authors in exchange for an honest review.**

    This book is a collection of short stories by various authors. There are oh so many books on the market that focus on the so called good guy getting the girl, but few highlight the relationships of the so called bad guys. These short stories take the reader into the darker side of the world and give us a look at how loyal, loving, and honor bound the alpha males of the darker side are.

These short stories take the reader into the darker side of the world and give us a look at how loyal, loving, and honor bound the alpha males of the darker side are. Although I was only asked to read and review Enforcing Fate by Amy Rachiele, I enjoyed each and every short story and have found some new authors and stories to follow. Enforcing Fate by Amy Rachiele Amy Rachiele is the first author that truly introduced me to how much I could identify with and love the men of the mafia. Most authors give the reader a traditional look at the mafia as being horrible and violent with few if any redeeming qualities. However, Amy Rachiele also shows the reader that these strong alpha men act on behalf of loyalty, family, and love just as much as any other man. I have read many of her stories and Enforcing Fate is just as amazing as all the rest. Her characters are well-developed as always and the story moves quickly with just enough twists and turns to keep the reader on their toes. I am not so fond of the ending of this particular story since so much is left up in the air, but I also knew it was likely to happen since it was a short story, not a full length novel. I absolutely can't wait to get more of Alex and Meryl's story and to see where the two end up in the long run. The storyline was excellent and the wording felt natural and allowed me to read with flow and fall into the story and characters without interruption. Please don't keep me waiting for more for too long Amy Rachiele and all of you authors who left us with more to come in the story!

She wants the life without out all the bloodshed she used to have with Alzerro. She misses his darkness. She has seen him kill and even killed for him. She wants to feel like they are the same people they used to be and doesn't want to lose them. She tries to tell Alzerro her concerns and he feels like she isn't happy with who he became. He wants a normal life and to not become the person he once was. Finally he sees what Bree is trying to tell him and gives in. Then Bree gives him some awesome news. Alzerro is one of my favorite male characters. He exudes so much power and darkness that makes me go weak in the knees. I need more Alzerro in my life!

    This review is for Infringe by author JL Beck. Infringe, by author JL Beck, is a short novella of A Kingpin Love Affair. It is about the life of Bree and Alzerro, and their lives as husband and wife and as parents. Alzerro is no longer the hot headed, crazed mobster that Bree fell in love with, but a law abiding citizen working for the FBI. The heat and passion that Alzerro brought once upon a time with his reckless and dangerous ways has diminished, making Bree wonder where that man she fell in This review is for Infringe by author JL Beck. Infringe, by author JL Beck, is a short novella of A Kingpin Love Affair. It is about the life of Bree and Alzerro, and their lives as husband and wife and as parents. Alzerro is no longer the hot headed, crazed mobster that Bree fell in love with, but a law abiding citizen working for the FBI. The heat and passion that Alzerro brought once upon a time with his reckless and dangerous ways has diminished, making Bree wonder where that man she fell in love with went. We witness Bree and Alzerro struggle with their desires, needs and fears, to rekindle that 'fire' they once shared. I adore Bree and Alzerro and have been a fan of them from their very first encounter. I was thrilled that JL Beck wrote about what happens to such a passionate couple once the dust has settled and their once unpredictable lives become ordinary. Great job once again JL Beck and thank you for giving us more of Bree and Alzerro.

    I love to read mafia romance stories. When I saw there was a Mafia Anthology, I knew I had to check it out. How can you go wrong with 13 stories by different authors? You're bound to find some you like. I sometimes get overwhelmed by Anthologies because they are big books. So for this one I jumped around and started reading the stories by author that I had read before. I started with Enforcing Fate by Amy Rachiele. I loved it. It's told in the dual POVs of Meryl and Alex. I got hooked into the I love to read mafia romance stories. When I saw there was a Mafia Anthology, I knew I had to check it out.

So for this one I jumped around and started reading the stories by author that I had read before. I started with Enforcing Fate by Amy Rachiele. I loved it. It's told in the dual POVs of Meryl and Alex. I got hooked into the story right from the beginning. It's a short quick read which I was glad about because I didn't want to put it down until I was finished. Next I read Infringe by J.L. Beck. This one is a bonus novella that goes along with J.L. Beck's A Kingpin Love Affair series. In this one we get to see what Bree and Zerro have been up too. The next two I'm going to read are Calabrese by Elle Raven and Gian by Lisa Gardiff.
