Pretty things always tell lies …
Cory Rossi isn’t what you would expect the youngest son of the Chicago mob’s underboss to be. Despite what everyone thinks, he can actually do what he’s told. He just does it his own way. The problem with that is every tattooed- and leather-covered inch of him screams one thing to Della Costello—total heartbreak. It’s all men like him do, right? One hook-up, when he didn’t even know her name, was all she could afford.
Their one-time encounter should have stopped there. But an ex that causes problems for her business—and the mob’s—and Cory becomes her new shadow until the bullets quiet in the streets. It gets harder and harder to stay out of his bed.
They’ll walk a fine line. And there is no mercy in this tragedy.
For love and lost blood, once more, Chicago will rage.
Pretty Lies is a standalone romantic suspense within Bethany-Kris’s Commission World.
Pretty Lies is a standalone novel, so it can definitely be read no matter if you've read the author's other works or not. This story delivers to us Cory Rossi and Della Costello.
One of my favorite things about mafia books, is that you just never know quite where they will take you, there's always that element of suspense and sense of what's going to happen now. That's the truth of Pretty Lies, I wasn't sure where these characters would lead me, but I enjoyed every second of the journey with them.
I loved Cory's character, he was unapologetic and who he was. He never forgot his one night with the woman he didn't know. Della was also a character who grabbed my attention, she was not a meek and mild woman with mob connections - but rather she was bold.
This story spun my emotions every which way, but it all flowed together, developing into quite the love story for our two characters. The mob ties, the secrets, the lies, they all served a purpose and wove everything together solidly. I loved how the author built up the connection between these two - from one unexpected night together to oh so much more.
