Blog Tour: MOBSTER’S ANGEL (Mobster #4) by Amy Rachiele
“Sometimes I hear him whispering in my ear as if my conscience has grown and matured into a six foot three dark haired male. The studying, reading, and listening I did to impress adults are nothing compared to what I learned from Vito.”
Vito has grown up in the underworld of the mob. He has recently reached age eighteen. His family has been involved since the thirties. In 2014, the rules haven’t changed much. What worked then, works now; power, violence, and loyalty.
Love isn’t something you can control. As much as Vito, mobster enforcer, wish he could, he can’t. And falling in love with someone who is close to jailbait age is even tougher. Vito bides his time and waits. For a hasty guy with limited self-control, it’s difficult to curb his impulses.
At age fifteen, Erin just wants to forget. Erin’s world came crashing down when she learned her family was not what they seemed. She’s been living in a lie. No one told her her family was mob. The cliché ignorance is bliss becomes a sharp stabbing realization when she has to learn to cope with the aftermath.
Being smart doesn’t save you from terror and doesn’t teach you how to live with it. You can’t escape the mob. It’s part of your existence!
**Book 4 in Mobster Series or it can stand alone. It is told in alternate perspective between Vito and Erin.
Abby’s Review 4 Solid Stars
This is book four in the Mobster Series and can be read as a stand alone. I am brand new to this series and am reading it as a stand alone. It was a huge solid 4 for me and I couldn’t help but feel like if I had read more of the series that this would be a five for me. This is a quick read, that draws you in and keeps you completely engaged the whole way through.
What I loved…
I loved how the characters stayed true to their life style. Vito is a mobster. He knows this is who he is. He is loyal. He stays true to his role and I loved that. Erin is completely true to her role as well. I love it when you read characters that actually behave the way they should for the way they were brought up.
I wished there was a little more steam, I didn’t get it till the epilogue and we needed the steam like yesterday.
Overall I felt like everything that I wanted from this I got. My only issues were that I didn’t have more. So the moral of this review is I need to pick up more of this series like yesterday.

INTERVIEW WITH AMY
How often do you write?
It depends on how inspired I am. I may go a whole week not writing then spend insane hours a day for 5 days straight.
What was the hardest/easiest part of writing Mobster’s Angel?
Making sure that the voices were authentic now that these characters are main protagonists in first person POV.
What inspired you to write the Mobster’s Series?
A tattoo on a guy I met when I was a teenager. He had a tattoo of the name Antonio. It was the name of his newly born son. Knowing the background of the people I was with. I thought to myself, “what will life be like for him?” Mobster’s Girl was born. 20 years later I wrote the story.
How many books will there be in the series?
Currently there is 4. Mobster’s Angel can stand alone or be read as book 4. I am probably going to write about Troy and Alessandra. Maybe a 4.2 or something. Their story is niggling at me.
What are you currently reading? What do you think makes a great book?
Finished True, by Laurann Dohner. Reading RAW by Belle Aurora. Next is A Woman Gone Mad by Kimber S. Dawn.
What do you do to relax?
I have a ton of hobbies. Scrapbooking, sewing, and crocheting.
What’s your favorite quote in Mobster’s Angel?
This in the opening of the book and really epitomizes Vito’s character. Rough, doesn’t make excuses for his actions, accepts his lot in life, possessive.
Where do you like to write/read?
I have a den off my bedroom that I use to write. I have my mac, desk, reclining couch, and bookcase. I typically read in bed or reclining on one of my couches with my IPAD.
Write with music or in silence?
I write in silence or with music. Even sometimes with the T.V. on SYFY channel low volume.
Is there any traditions you do after finishing a book?
Not really because my mind is usually racing with ideas for the next one. Sometimes it is hard for me to stay focused.
Future projects for 2014 are paranormal romances?
What’s your favorite thing about being an author?
Meeting all of the people who like to read like I do. I hate not having someone to talk with about books.
