I’m all for mafia books. I intentionally look for them.
I’m addicted to the world where men are dangerous and kill to protect what’s theirs.
Taken is the story of Xavier and Rhiannon. Rhiannon is the daughter of a vicious and nasty mob boss that expects obey from everyone around him, including Xavier.
Xavier, the son of the maid has no trouble going against DeLaurio.
DeLaurio’s plans to control him go sideways when he does the one thing to turn a rebellious kid into a monster from his own nightmares.
This book while, having some funny parts was a quick read stopping at 85% on the Kindle app.
I like the quirky personally of Rhiannon as an adult. She grown up and regardless of what her father has in store for her, she isn’t willing to lie down and take it.
The story’s plot was hidden and you could see it coming a mile away. What I didn’t see was the number of people involved in turning DeLaurio’s life upside down.
I felt more could’ve been added to the story. There’s a huge part where Xavier is gone and suddenly he’s back.
We only see the story from Xavier and Rhiannon’s view. Though many of the supporting characters have their own background story, we only get enough to tie in to make the plot plausible.
I do love how the author took comments from his group on what to put into the story like the plot, names, genre, etc. That alone is worth an extra star to me!
Logan, I appreciate that gesture! It’s not often that readers get to help their author create a story!
