Maclean Mafia Men, 3

Blake and his family did everything they could to protect the Moretti women. They already had one in their house, and the second one was saved from a fate worse than death. One look at Hope and Blake knew she was his. He just had to keep her safe.

Hope was desperate to get away when the Maclean mafia stepped in. They took care of her and did everything they could to protect her, even if it meant marrying Blake. When an avenging angel helped with the problem and took the monsters away, Hope didn’t think they had to rush into marriage anymore.

Blake didn’t care what happened—she would become his no matter what.

Be Warned: anal sex


When she finally settled enough, he climbed up her body and nudged her legs farther apart. “Baby, I’m not going to use a rubber. I want to feel your skin against mine.”

“Blake, I could get pregnant. I’m not on any birth control.”

“I know, and it’s okay. We’ll be married, and I’ll take care of everything. You want to have children, right?”

She nodded.

“Good.” He bent and took her lips when she opened them to argue. Then he steadily started to push his cock into her until he hit her cherry.

Fuck, he hated that he was going to hurt her, but he just told himself it was the only time it would happen. He reached between them to manipulate her clit and instantly felt a tide of her cum slide from her. His ass tightened as he pushed through her hymen.

“Stop,” she screamed and beat on his shoulders.

He stayed still and whispered to her as he used his thumb to wipe away the tears that fell from her eyes. “Easy, pet. It’s over. You’ll never feel that again.”

“Do you promise?” she asked petulantly.

He bit back a smile and nodded. “Yes, baby, I promise.”

She sighed. “Okay.”

“Tell me if this hurts.” Blake pushed his cock in a little farther and watched her expression the whole time. He kept at it until he had his cock all the way in. “Babe, you took all of me.”



“It’s not comfortable, Blake. You’re stretching me too much.”

“It’s because your cunt is still a virgin, and it will take me a few times to stretch you out. After a while, your cunt will know only my cock and will take it greedily every time I need you. It’s not painful now, right?”

She shook her head.

“Good. Put your hands on my shoulders.”

He started pushing in and out of her in long slow glides. Before long, he could feel tingles at the base of his spine. “Baby, I want you to come for me.”


He grinned at the shock in her voice. “Yes.”

His thrusts became harder and faster. When he felt her tighten around his cock, he reached between them and pressed on her clit.

A scream tore from her throat, and her cunt clamped down on his, forcing him to shove his way in and out. When she relaxed, he rammed his cock into her until he felt the wave of unimaginable pleasure shoot through him as his cock erupted and his seed filled her cervix.

He rested on his elbows as he tried to gain enough strength to move off her. He couldn’t get over the height of his emotions and the pleasure he’d gotten from her. It made him more determined to marry her as soon as possible to bind her to him for life.

He pressed a kiss to her mouth. “I’ll be right back.”

She flinched when he pulled out of her and then lay still with her eyes closed. He would have thought she was asleep except for the blush darkening her face.

He smiled as he cleaned up and then took a washcloth to her. Then he had her spread and was wiping her off before she could start to fight him.


“Just let me get this done so I can let you rest, baby.” When he was finished, he walked a few feet to toss the cloth in the bathroom sink and turn off the lights before he slid into bed and cuddled her against his body.

He kissed the back of her head. “How do you feel?”

She mumbled something with her face pressed against the blanket.

“I didn’t hear you,” he said.

“I said I’m fine,” she said quickly and then hid her face again.

He concealed his smile and let her hide. He’d get her over the embarrassment and shyness quickly because he would be inside of her every chance he got.


“Yes, baby.”

“I just wanted to say … thank you,” she whispered. “You made me feel better.”

“You’re welcome.”

Damn, if that wasn’t the moment he started to fall in love with her.

I loved it! It was lust at first sight for Blake. He immediately wanted her and wanted to marry her. He didn't dilly dally. He rushed to get her binded to him. Their chemistry was off the charts.

A great continuation of this series. Both main characters are developed really well and you get to know them thought out the story and it shows you their personalities with every interaction they share. The storyline was engaging and keeps you wanting until the end... I happily finished this in one sitting!! I love how the story is made to fit in with the previous ones but also stands out as its own independent story. I cannot wait to read more from this series!!

The Maclean brothers just keep getting hotter
Written by JudyCh on 2nd Aug 2022

We have read about Allistar and Graham’s story and I thought those were great but this book had the alpha male and Hope falling in love, who wouldn’t want a trying loving alpha male to love them and Blake loved Hope immediately and sometimes you just need a yummy book which was a quick read for me and I loved it, I think there might be one more brother who will fall in love.

Great read
Written by Letstalksmut _chill on 2nd Aug 2022

Starting out this book I didn’t know what to expect this was the first book I’ve read by this author and I really enjoyed it. This isn’t your typical arranged marriage mafia book I enjoyed what they did to get the main character away from a bad situation and bring all of the family in as one can’t wait to read more

Great story
Written by PHOENIX96 on 2nd Aug 2022

Blake was instantly drawn to Hope, and she would be hisbno matter she's already engaged to marry another. But when things settle does Hope still understand Blakes feeling still run deep. Well written good addition to the series. Engaging steamy action and drama

Written by Amanda1444 on 2nd Aug 2022

This book is part of a series, you should read the first book but you could still read this book without reading the others and still enjoy it. Hope meets Blake when he rescues her from a forced marriage. There's about a 20 year age gap between the two of them, but neither are bothered by it. This book is honestly hot. I love read Lila Fox books.

Absolutely Brilliant Read
Written by Jean-Rall on 2nd Aug 2022

This is book three in The Maclean Mafia Men series and it is Blake and Hope's story. Wow I absolutely love this series and I was looking forward to reading this book and it definitely didn't disappoint. The characters and storyline kept your attention throughout and on the edge of your seat wondering what would happen next and I couldn't put it down as it was so addictive and a real page turner. Even though it is a standalone book I feel you would enjoy it more if you start reading from book one so that you can get all the background history and I definitely recommend you read this book and series and you will not be disappointed.

Dark mafia story
Written by Michele77 on 2nd Aug 2022

This is the third book in the series and builds on the previous stories. As with alot of mafia books there is murder and implied violence but the main focus is on the relationship between the main characters and how they deal with a restrictive lifestyle.

Losing Hope
Written by A. Adams on 2nd Aug 2022

This is the 3rd book in the series of Maclean Mafia men and Morelli Mafia women. In this Mafia world women hold no value. Even the most of the married men have mistresses. You do not have to read the other books but they do all have the same characters. This time around is Hope trying to get away from her cruel father. In the past books as well the MacLean men have been there to take these women home to their mansion and immediately marry them. This book is the same. Blake takes home Hope and her mother home and marries, his pet, Hope within a few days. All of these Maclean Mafia men are sweet for their women and Blake is no different. Blake's brother is married to Hope's sister already. Hope and 2 of the other women in the house find their selves getting kidnapped and the brothers come together to rescue them.
