This is book four in the series of Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles. It follows Lily and Romero. Lily is the sister of books one and three. She has had a crush on Romero ever since she saw him at her older sister Arias’s wedding. So they’ve always had a huge crush on him, and they meet to see her sister every time. But he never saw her like that, and she knew that she had a crush on him. Once she’s 18 of age, she starts to grow up. He sees her in that light as well. So it talks about their story.

Lily is a mafia princess. She is the daughter of the consulate consuls year. On the other hand, the Chicago outfit Romero is the bodyguard of the New York Famiglia. So he’s the bodyguard of the capo and guards Aria, her older sister. He is merely a soldier, so you can’t do that in this world. Like Hearts In Darkness, the mafia world is very strict on their rules, and they don’t accept any love or relationship.

The mafia princess is to marry somebody in her social line, and he’s not in the social line, so it’s forbidden. The forbidden part was good. Romero is not happy about Liliana. He is literally in his late 50s, and she’s new 18. So that’s disgusting, but it’s how their world is.
