When you grow up in the most feared mafia family, it's easy to identify the kind of men that are bad news.

They're the ones with experience. The ones with secrets. The ones that exude sex just by saying your name.

From the minute I laid eyes on Lorenzo, I knew he wasn't just bad news. He was the headline.

My opinion didn't change on our second meeting.

Or our third.

But my head and my heart are at war.

He’s too mysterious, too gorgeous, too wild, and now, he wants me. I should run far away. So why am I racing toward him? I’m totally going to get burned. I know it. A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed.He'll make ashes of me.

Review: Because You’re Mine by Claire Contreras

My Thoughts…

I just don’t know where to start with Because You’re Mine by Claire Contreras!! I just FLOVED this book! I devoured every page and read it in record time! It was suspenseful and the twist and turns were very unexpected! I keep saying to myself, I didn’t see that coming!  It kept me on my toes in the best way possible! I always like to guess the outcome and there was no guessing correctly with this one!  But then again, those are my absolute favorite! It’s not fun to read a book and have it all figured out!  You want to story to unfold in way you never saw coming a Because You’re Mine did just that!!

Catalina grew up with her father being a mob boss. She knows that lifestyle and as an adult swore never to be a part of it.  It’s part of the reason why she used her mother’s maiden name. She’s worked her way top of her profession as the principal ballerina in a New York City dance company.  Dance gives her focus and an outlet.  Her and her sister are very close and when her sister asked a favor to attend a class for her she didn’t think anything of it.  Her sister is out of town and just needs to attend the two classes she needs to graduate from college. This small favor will change her life and throw everything she thought she know out the window.

Lorenzo is everything Catalina is trying to remover herself from.  The suave Italian that is sexy and intelligent.  He’s literally sex on a stick!!  He’s covering for his friend who is teaching the class Catalina is attending for her sister. He’s not supposed to fall for her.  He knows the secrets of her past and he knows he should not get involved with her but he’s drawn to her.

Their paths keep passing and it seems the more they try to stay apart, fate is trying to keep them together.  For someone who is trying to escape from their past, the future keeps pulling Catalina to a place she never expected.   This story was just amazing and a top read of 2018 for me! I tell you I just have soft spot for mafia romances!! There is just so much more I want to say but I don’t want to spoil any part of the story!!  Just know this… READ IT!  Well done to Ms Contreras for bring us another outstanding read!!
