Cammareri Family, 2

Lira Blake
My blood is blue. I'm a cop through and through. But when an assignment brings me into the Cammareri Family home, I learn not everything is black and white. Sometimes the law has to be broken for justice to be served. Severu has me re-thinking everything I have ever known.

Severu Cammareri
Lira appears in my life unexpectedly. A situation out of my control has her living in my home. I wasn’t looking for a woman and now I have to find a way to keep my hands off her. Her betrayal should make it easy, but I still crave her. Lira has turned my entire world upside down.



The sexual attraction I feel for her has floored me. Guilia refers to it as insta-lust. Something mentioned in many of her romance novels. She mentioned it the one time I asked her what she was reading, effectively ensuring I wouldn’t enquire again.

I know little of this woman except for the accidental slip of her true name. Inquiries have given me a small glimpse into her life. She is twenty-nine, divorced, and living on her own. She has no family or friends that I can find. The one saving grace is that she is nothing more than a bartender at Nocturn. I don’t know how I would manage her being one of the escorts.

“What are you thinking about?” Allegra asks.

Shaking all thoughts of Lira out of my mind, I try to focus on the ledger in front of me. Allegra wanted to show me the books and make sure that we are satisfied with her work.

“Why do you think I’m not paying attention”? I ask.

“Well.” She smiles. “I asked you if you wanted a drink, and you didn’t answer. Also, you have a murderous look on your face.”

Lifting my gaze from the numbers, I stare at her. After long moments, Allegra bursts out laughing.

“If I hadn’t known you for two years, I would fear for my life. But I know you don’t hurt women or children. Is there something wrong with the numbers?” she asks softly.

“No, no. The numbers are better than ever.” I sigh.

“Is there something I can do to help?”

Allegra is a sweet girl. From the first moment I met her, that was clear. She is driven, smart, and caring. Which is exactly the reason I drove four hundred miles and shot her father in the head. That man broke her, mentally and physically. I couldn’t stand to know that he was alive somewhere while she still suffered the effects of the damage he had wrought on her.

“Maybe you need to get laid,” Allegra says thoughtfully.

“Fucking hell.” I rub my hand down my face.

“What? I’m eighteen. I know what sex is. For heaven’s sake, I manage a brothel!”

She looks incredulous. Of course, she is right. But that doesn’t mean I have any inclination to talk to her about my sex life.

“I don’t want to talk to you about this,” I say, instead rising from my seat to leave.

“Don’t be that way,” she calls after my retreating form with a laugh.

That girl is going to give me a stroke one of these days. She is also spending too much time around Guilia. Her love of giving me shit about anything and everything already rubbing off on Allegra.

I don’t look around as I leave Nocturn, too afraid to lay eyes on Lira again. I don’t know how much control I have around her.

My blood spikes as I round the corner into the alley where my car is parked to find a man with his hands all over Lira. I know for a fact that she doesn’t have sex with any of the men who come around here. She is only a bar lady. When she starts struggling against his hold, the last control I had snaps.

“Come on, girl,” I hear the man say. “You can’t tell me you’re not interested.”

“I said no,” Lira says.

I am so impressed with this book--this author delivered on every point that makes a great book. I love mafia/dark romance books because I am a huge fan of "anti-hero types" and this one was amazing. I know I will be re-reading it because it was just a great book.

This is book two in The Cammareri Family series and it is Lira and Severu's story and omg it is definitely a must read. Lira is a cop but when she is constantly not being taken seriously she asks for a transfer and ends up going undercover and working in a bar so that she can get information on the Cammareri Family and take them down but when she finds herself in a bad and difficult situation it is Severu that comes to her rescue and the more time that she spends with him she realised that they are not who they are constantly made out to be causing Lira to question everything and have conflicting emotions especially when she starts to have feelings for Severu who doesn't know who she is but what will happen when her secret is revealed will it cost her everything. Wow I absolutely loved this book and Lira and Severu's chemistry is so strong and intense that you can feel it sizzling off the pages and I couldn't put this book down as it was a real page turner that kept you on the edge of your seat wondering what would happen next and also so addictive. I absolutely love this series and I can't wait to read the next book.

Severu is the fantastic second book in the Cammereri Family series. Severu and Lira are definitely the most unlikely couple but they are smokin hot and take us on a steamy journey. Severu, the Mafia man and Lira the undercover cop soon find out they're the two halves that make a whole. This book has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. These characters are strong, fierce and determined. I can't wait to see what's next for this family
