Underboss by Kristen Proby

Published: March 2, 2021

I have only read a few books from Kristen Proby and only a couple of them from the With Me in Seattle series. So to read a mafia book by her I was a bit skeptical but I have learned that Kristen has a great range. I am a big fan of mafia romances and they range from nitty gritty to kind of sweet this one was a great medium. It wasn’t sweet which is honestly not what a mafia romance should be but it also wasn’t as nitty gritty as it could have been. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Carmine and Nadia. Carmine was convinced that Nadia’s family ordered the hit on his aunt and uncle and in order to get the answers he seeks he decides to use Nadia to get his way. Only when there is a death at the wedding of Nadia’s cousin they are ordered to work together in order to find out who was responsible. Then everything is put on the table between them and nobody knows where to start looking. Though Nadia is made a target and is almost killed they still don’t know who to look at.

I will say that I figured out who was behind it all rather quick but that’s not to say that it was terribly obvious. I also am so looking forward the rest of these mafia books. I read the preview for the next book and it’s just starting to heat up with Carmine and Nadia. The other bothers are going to have just as awesome stories and maybe even more dangerous than anything that Carmine and Nadia faced. I am so glad that I don’t have to wait a long time for the next book. I think it’s going to be awesome. But first you need to read this one and love Carmine and Nadia as much as I did. The crumbling of their walls was the best.
