Mafia Lords, 1

Never walk alone after darkCara Strong should’ve heeded those words more carefully. Then again, she never expected a tired waitress, a nobody from a small town, would be anyone’s target. When Cara wakes up, she’s finds herself in a high-end auction. She's shocked when the Don of the Massimo Family takes her back home with him and offers her his protection.

Dante Massimo acquired Cara to spite a rival crime family. Falling for her fiery spirit and her sharp tongue had never been part of his plan. Cara doesn’t belong in his world. She’s too innocent, too good for someone like him. Dante never intended to keep her but he’s changed his mind. He’s beginning to see that she’s exactly what he needs.



“You don’t know who I am?”

The arrogance that dripped from that one sentence made her want to roll her eyes—which she did. He only looked amused and that kicked up her fear a notch. Cara was used to leers and lewd suggestions coming from crude men like Ted, but it unnerved her that this man was a different kind of scary.

“Dante Massimo. It’s a pleasure to finally speak to you face-to-face, Cara Strong,” he said.

Even the way he said her name sounded sinful. It infuriated her. Of course, men like him who had access to numerous resources probably knew everything about her.

“Release me and I promise I won’t tell the cops about … all this,” she said.

He laughed and that only ticked her off. Cara wasn’t a naive fool. She knew nothing would be easy, especially given her circumstances.

“I’m good friends with the police commissioner. Sam and I play golf twice a month, in fact,” Dante said. He took a step toward her and Cara tensed. She didn’t like feeling like a cornered rat. Dante went on, “The drugs must still be wearing off so I’ll just have to remind you that you’re now exclusively mine. I have no intentions of ever letting you go. I’m very particular about my possessions, you see.”

“I’m a person, not a thing,” Cara whispered.

“Indeed, you continue to intrigue me the more time we spend together,” Dante said.

He slid his hands into the pockets of his trousers and continued, “I have back-to-back meetings all day, so we’ll have to continue this conversation tonight. Enjoy a long bath. There’s plenty of food in the kitchen as well. I’ll have a dress delivered to you this afternoon. I expect you to be wearing it for dinner.”

“Who the hell do you think you are?” Cara demanded.

Her head spun with anger, with how ridiculous everything was. Did he really think she’d do as he asked? Dante finally crossed the distance between them. She froze but he only lifted her left hand and placed a kiss on her wrist. Her heart started beating erratically. How could this man be so charming and maddening at the same time?

Cara swallowed. When he leaned in close, she could smell the cologne he used and a hint of cigarette smoke.  Cara parted her lips slightly and let out a little moan when her breasts brushed against his arm. Dante’s mouth touched her left ear, not her lips. Disappointment hit her, although she didn’t understand why.

“Escape is futile, Cara. Sooner or later, you will have to accept your unique position,” Dante whispered.

Mine ( lol)
Written by Beast's Beauty on 18th May 2023

Dante jump off the page the moment you started reading. Cara set herself apart from the rest by her inner dialogue. The way these two got together was unconventional but once there you see the relationshi nont only grow but you see the change in Dante and Cara. And let us not foget the lame-brain Ted, the reason Cara was with Dante to begin with. I love the brutalness of Dante in his life but his interactions/converstations with Cara and talking through her actions you saw him not only understaanding her but understand his world through her eyes. S/N: Honarable mention of Jake is perfect - silent friend/protector of Cara and quiet conscious of Dante.

Indecent Auction
Written by Champagne77 on 18th May 2023

I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book. Cara had recently lost the only person she had ever called family, when her step dad became sick she dropped out of school to look after him and help pay the medical bills but nothing could save him, she’s been left alone working as a waitress for a sleazy boss who hits on her every chance he gets and bills she has no idea how she is going to pay. Just when life couldn’t look less bleak she’s taken from street and is up for auction. Sold to the highest bidder Don Dante Massimo for a million dollars, she is to become a mafia boss play thing, only she’s discovering that he is not all that she thinks and soon finds herself in danger to losing her heart to a man she should hate. But what will happen to her when he finally tires of her, will she be cast aside like yesterdays news or could she have found a man who she can love and call family? Dante Massimo had no plans to attend the auction his brother had bought them tickets too, with a drug shipment being stolen from under his nose by a rival mafia family he has more pressing matters to attend to, but noting his brothers crestfallen face he agrees to go. It was a night that he would never forget when he finds himself bidding on an innocent woman who has fire burning in her veins as she try’s to fight her way out and of course to annoy the very family he was planning to destroy. Cara intrigued him far more than she should and he had no intention of keeping her at first but soon realises that she is everything he needs. But with another family out for his blood and his woman, will he be able to keep her safe or will he lose the only thing he never knew he needed? This is my first book by this author and I have to say that I throughly enjoyed it. Cara was brave and defiant and Dante was an alpha to be feared. Highly recommended short and sexy 4.2* read.

Mafia Romance
Written by ljamison01 on 18th May 2023

Cara was walking home from work one day late at night when she was kidnapped and locked in a cage to wait for an auction. At the auction she saw her boss bidding on her but he lost the bid to someone else. Dante was a mafia boss who although he was tough, strong and confident. He was so sweet and kind to Cara. He was able to break through all of Cara’s defenses. Although this was a novella it seemed like an actual novel it had all the elements of a mafia book. Very enjoyable. I am anxious to read book 2 of Mafia Lords.

Written by KMH Romancessessed Reviews on 18th May 2023

I love this author and the stories she writes. Honestly after reading the blurb I was expecting a darkish, naughty kind of storyline but this book for more was more softer than I expected but I still loved every bit of it. I think when it comes to mafia romance I expect more violence and tension between the characters but this wasn't as intense as other books I have read but I think I liked that as it was all romance!!

Super short mafia read
Written by Amber K on 18th May 2023

This is a fun, super short lunchtime read. Cara is a down-on-her-luck waitress who becomes the victim of human trafficking. She's herded in front of mafia men at an auction and purchased by Dante, who cannot resist her or getting one over on a rival who obviously wants her for himself. Cara resists her erstwhile "owner" but he actually treats her with kindness despite the situation. At 88 pages the story packs in a lot and is an enjoyable read- smutty, action-filled, and suspenseful.

?♥️? Dante and Cara ?♥️?
Written by DebinOkla on 18th May 2023

?♥️? Dante and Cara ?♥️? A wonderful love story. What a beginning, she gets kidnapped...he buys her. Winter Sloane does a great job putting these 2 mismatched people together. Great book!

Great chemistry
Written by Amanda1444 on 18th May 2023

Cara finds herself in a horrible predicament where she meets Dante, the don of the mafia. Dante is a strong dominant man who has an endearing soft side but only with Cara. This couple struggles to find their way with each other but their chemistry is amazing!

Cute short mafia romance
Written by Alejandra ♥️ on 18th May 2023

Brutal Don is the first book in the Mafia Lords series and is the results we would want if we were sold at an auction. At least mine anyway. I loved Cara’s attitude towards the whole thing. Dante is such a gentleman even when we don’t want him to be. It’s a quick cute read. Spice level (1-5): ?️?️ Cara would have never imagined that rejecting a coworker would get her abducted and sold at an auction. Lucky when her creepy coworker tries to buy her, he is outbid by a handsome mafia boss. Trying to find the silver lining, she comes to accept her new life and opens her heart to her savior. I would recommend Brutal Don to all mafia romance readers. If you like mafia, forced proximity, fast burn, short reads, instant attraction, you’ll love Brutal Don. This book does contain unaliving, attempted murder, mafia stuff, human trafficking. For the readers who want a short read of two opposites quickly falling for each other this one is for you! Warning: Reading Brutal Don may make you purposely get abducted in hopes the one that buys you turns out to be a hot mafia boss. May make you work on your cooking skills. May make you embrace your new life and accept the good things. Read responsibly.

4 1/2 stars
Written by Deb5258 on 18th May 2023

Intriguing and a bit dark, this book was impossible to put down once I started reading. The story held me hostage as the scenes played out. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. I can’t wait for the next book.

Its a book that any book lover would enjoy.

Dante and Cara
Written by CarKar on 25th Apr 2023

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this story since this is my first time reading this author, but I enjoyed this insta-fascination between Don Dante and waitress turned captive, Cara. I could ignore some of the parts that seemed out of character or sudden because of the like ability of the characters (except despicable Ted, of course … but there had to be a villain). Loved the sting operation between Dante and Tom Gambino. Looking forward to reading more from WS.

This story was about Cara and Dante Masaimo, Cara just locked up at work as tired as she was she was walked home, on her way home she was kidnapped then put in a cage they kept her drugged until the next day. Dante bid on her at an auction he couldn't understand why, there was just something about her. Her old boss was trying to get to her but she was guarded.

Written by vickymeowmeow on 25th Apr 2023

Exciting fast-paced story. Characters are very believable. Appreciate it that Kara was not a wimp and not excessively dramatic. Sex was mild to moderate and does not overwhelm the story. Would love to see more of this couple in the future.

Steamy mafia romance
Written by LBing on 25th Apr 2023

This was a steamy mafia romance that focused more on romance than the mafia. After rescuing Cara from an auction she was kidnapped for by her boss, Dante had planned to let her go. However, the more time he spent with her, and her feisty nature, he realized she was his match and perfect for him. Turns out that when Dante outbid his competition for her, he actually saved her life. This helped smooth out the whole gilded cage issue for her and allowed feelings to bloom ;D

Good Maffia Read
Written by Danee on 25th Apr 2023

Winter Sloane has written a new series and this is the first book in the Mafia Lords series. Cara is soft and sweet and Dante is the opposite. When Cara is auctioned off at an auction after being kidnapped, and Dante sees her there, he does everything he can to get the winning bid, especially since he doesn't want his rival to run off with her. This was a beautiful story with suspense, action and softness and romance. Highly recommended.

Brutal Don
Written by Shanna on 25th Apr 2023

Brutal Don (Book 1 of Mafia Lords) by Winter Sloane. Boy did Cara dodge a bullet when Dante seeks revenge on a rival crime family and outbids them for her. I enjoyed the push and pull, the darkish drama, the undeniable chemistry, and the HEA.

Dante and Cara
Written by kdavis on 25th Apr 2023

Cara is a waitress and ends up getting kidnapped while she's walking home from work. Dante ends up seeing Cara at the action and outbid his rival that wanted to buy her. He takes her home and they slowly get to know each other. Cara ends up being the best thing that enters Dante life. She brings out the softness in Dante. He's still brutal to his enemies but never to Cara. It's a fast paced, edge of your seat plot and wonderful characters. I loved their chemistry as it brings out their fireworks. I loved the ending. Highly recommend.

Brutal Don!
Written by Mary on 25th Apr 2023

This is the first story in the "Brutal Dons" series and reads as a stand alone story. I enjoyed every bit of this fairly short and quick read. The story is about Dante and Cara and has some dark themes. Cara is working hard trying to pay off her father's medical bills and surviving. She is walking home when she is abducted. Dante is the head of the Massimo crime family. Nobody messes with him or his family, including the Gambinos. Cara ends up as Dante's possession. They have an intriguing story with action, suspense, danger, passion, tenderness and love.

Dante and Cara
Written by weave on 16th Apr 2023

I adore Willow's books. This was amazing. I loved Cara and Dante. They were both strong characters. Dante thought he'd keep Cara around for some fun and then send her back to her old life. What he got was woken up. She rattled his world. He realized she was the one he wanted to be his wife. Meanwhile Cara was fighting her attraction to him. She tried to remember how she got there. But then she gets a wake up call and is forced to admit her feelings. Once she does.... Fireworks. They had great chemistry and were well suited for each other. And the end was perfect.

being kidnapped was one of the best things to ever happen to her
Written by memes on 16th Apr 2023

Cara is having a bad day to say the least, but unbeknownst to her, her situation turns into the best thing to happen to her. Cara is kidnapped while walking home and I was surprised when I realized who kidnapped her. Dante buys Cara at the auction after she's kidnapped and it was like he was trying to woo her. The story has action, a little suspense and some steamy moments between the two of them. It ended with a happily ever after that I enjoyed.

Written by Sua on 16th Apr 2023

When Cara gets kidnapped and put in an auction, Dante buys her because he sees his rival bidding on her. Little does he know she’s full of fire and will instantly fall for her. I love the interaction between the couple and the softness that Cara brings in Dante.

Cara was abducted on her way home one night and ended up the highlight of a flesh auction. Dante had been dragged to the auction by his brother and didn't plan to bid. Then he saw Cara. A rival of his wanted her, so Dante outbid him and took her home. While Dante is an Alpha and a Don, he didn't force Cara to do his bidding. They got to know each other and grew as a couple.

But could their time together become something more than captor and captive?Well written steamy, desires, action and more.

A nice dark romance
Written by OdinsValkyrja❤️ on 16th Apr 2023

I liked the book and loved the plot. The way Cara got placed in Dante's path was perfection. I just wished it progressed a little slower in the beginning. I love Dante and his personality. With Cara I enjoyed how she wasn't just a wilted flower but she also wasn't in your face "strong." It was a good balance. I love when the main female character isn't over the top with thinking they can do whatever when they have no power in the situation.
