Fierce, good-looking, loyal, son of a crime boss, Bronson Agosto is what every girl dreams of. Devoted to one girl and willing do everything in his power to ensure her safety.

Beautiful, trusting, damaged, daughter of the underboss, Callie Locati has Bronson’s heart. She gave herself to him when they were kids and will sacrifice all she is to protect him.

Divided by the greed of one of the most trusted members of the familia, a father’s sins, and secrets kept, they struggle to overcome the obstacles life has thrown their way. Is their bond strong enough to conquer the forces trying to keep them apart? Is a father’s betrayal more than their love can survive? Will the family secrets ruin them or will their devotion stand the test of time?

Excerpt

Despair and indecision linger around us, filling up the church. It’s weaving its way between each and every one of us; the loyalty that was once aligned with my family is now going to be called into question, the uncertainty of what will happen to the former soldiers and associates that worked for my father will be called into question and decisions will have to be made. The man responsible was never relieved of his duties as second in command and these men mourning my father’s demise aren’t in a position to question whatever orders they are given, not unless they want to meet the same detriment my father did. Frank Locati will seek to destroy everything my father built, he will challenge these men’s loyalties, harm the ones he doesn’t deem worthy.As I watch the casket being lowered into the grave, surrounded by loved ones, enemies, and friends a decision is made. Today, I decide, retribution will be mine. The difference between my retribution and theirs is that the justice system will take care of mine. It may not come swiftly, or as brutally and messy as they deliver, but it will come.

My Review:

 

Leigh Ann Lunsford is the Queen of Steamy Angst, and she is running true to form with Bellissimo Fortuna, which is 85% angst, so gird your loins and warn your heart, as it will be squeezed  – mercilessly.  It may also help to know that the story starts off in the middle, I say that because it takes the next 56% of the book to arrive at the event covered in the prologue, but it is an interesting and heart breaking journey to get there.  So settle in to your favorite reading nest with comfort snacks nearby as you will need them handy.  You will also be in dire need of ample libation to remain hydrated during the steamy bits – whew – hawt!
