They say heavy is the head that wears the crown
Andino Marcellos world is turned upside down when he becomes the next heir apparent to the Marcello empire. He was comfortable in his place as a Capo, but comfort is for the weak in the world of mafioso. The bosss seat is waiting. It takes meeting a tattooed beauty who has no idea who Andino is or the criminal legacy he now carries beneath his three-piece suits, and charming smile for him to finally bend the rules set out for him. That doesnt mean he can keep her.
They say things that never challenge you wont change you
Haven Murphy is doing her own thing, and she does it well. The owner of a successful Brooklyn strip club, she makes it her only goal to never fail. Shes just trying to live her life when a morning jog puts her face to face with a man that will change the direction of her life with a single conversation. She knows theres a dark side to him beyond his good looks, and three-piece suits, but its hard for her to care when she wants him. That doesnt mean he can be hers.
Hes going to break her heart; shes going to keep his.
Because duty waits on no one.
DUTY - MUSIC PLAYLIST
Duty is another compelling, romantic, heartwrenching and tense page turner. Making a choice between Love and Duty can be unbearable.
Andino aka Andi Marcello is a good capo who loves his family and honours the Cosa Nostra rules. Until now!
Haven is a capable and independent young woman who works hard to make her business a success. Her life revolves around her work, jogging and home, and she is content with what she has, but this is about to change!
Andi has just been informed that he is the next heir to the Marcello crown. News that he wasn't expecting, but will turn his comfortable world upside down. He takes his dog, Snaps for a walk in the park to clear his head. This is where he meets Haven who strikes a conversation and instantly there is this magnetic pull between them.
They both find themselves thinking about each other constantly and Andi decides to explore his feelings, a new experience for him. They are unable to resist the physical attraction and as much as he tries, he finds himself going back for more. Haven is slowly falling, but she is unaware of Andi's heritage and feels like a second fiddle to his busy life. Besides, she is far from being the image of a boss' wife and Andi might just have to settle for the outfit's choice of the "right" woman. The more entangled they become, the stronger their feelings become. Being under pressure from Dante, the current boss who doesn't approve of Haven, will he choose Love over Duty or hurt the one he really cares for?
Andi has always been projected as his cousin's John's, best friend and protector, but reading his own story is rather enlightening. In some ways it enhances the role he plays in John's story. This is expertly done as one would expect from this author. It also shows other facets in the dynamics of the Marcello family by whom I am always fascinated. I love the plot, the portrayal and everything else about this story. Haven's character is totally different from any of the other Marcellos stories and the end has left me wanting for more. I am keeping my fingers and everything else crossed. No dull moments in here whatsoever. Absolutely loved it.
