Louisa’s 4 Blush Review
I have always been a fan of mafia romance and rumor has it that CD Reiss is the master of it so I had to jump right in. I knew going in that this was a series and there was a good chance that the book would end on a cliffhanger and boy, oh boy did it!! Ahhhhhh!!
Violetta, a 19-year-old girl, planning her summer of fun is blindsided by Santino and their arranged marriage. She’s essentially bought by Sanito and she has not recourse – she is his- if she liked it or not. She can either fight it, which she does, or she can submit to the fact that she’s Santino’s bride. Both of which are not an easy task. Santino is beautiful and kind at times which makes it even harder for Violetta but she knows he’s a mafia king so there is danger and uncertainty when it comes to him.
This book has a mixture of the modern Italian family and the old world mentality which is seamless. There are traditions that must be kept and even if the situation she’s in, Violetta respects those. She may not respect her husband as a person, she respects the traditions.
When reading I felt as though CD Reiss really did her homework – she explains the inner workings of the Italian mafia so well. The emotions are high in this book. The ups and downs and twists and turns are steep.
I can’t wait for more!

An epic mafia romance trilogy that sets a new bar for just how dark a hero can get, from NY Times Bestselling author CD Reiss.
Some girls dream of marrying a prince, but I never imagined I’d be sold to a king.
The keeper of secrets.
When he forced me to marry him, I cried for love I’d never know.
When he locked me away, I cried for the freedom I lost forever.
Every other tear I’ve shed is for my soul, because I’m falling for the devil himself.
About the Author:
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestselling author. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
