New Release+Review: Kingpin by Alexa Riley

Thea James is scraping by and trying to make a decent life for herself. She keeps her nose clean and stays out of trouble, trying to do what she can to pay the bills. One night on her way home she becomes a witness to a murder. Suddenly, with the shot of a bullet, she’s thrust into a world she had no idea existed. But what’s Thea to do when the darkness that could swallow her is exactly where she wants to go?

Salvatore Costello is the boss in the Los Angeles mafia. He’s in charge of everything, and that includes who he allows in his inner circle. He’s spent his whole life not letting anyone close to him because he knows what the consequences could be. But one night changes everything. She’s a witness and she needs to be taken care of, but after one touch, he’s redefining what that means. Is she strong enough to lead his empire? Will she be ripe enough to give birth to one?

Warning: This is dark, dirty, baby-making smut. This guy is after Thea, and he’s got a plan to keep her from getting away. Want to take a guess at what that is? Hint: There’s absolutely no birth control in this book. If you want it, come and get it! We’ve got you covered.

I really enjoyed this Mafia style book by Alexa Riley. I haven't read a book like this from them and it renewed my spark when it comes to these ladies. Thea and Salvatore meet in an unusual set of circumstances and their is an instant attraction. What I liked this time was that there was a slower burn to their romance. Salvatore was protective, sweet and caring when it came to Thea. He made sure all her needs were met and then in typical Alexa Riley fashion when the time was right he made his move and I couldn't stop smiling. I loved how Thea didn't take Salvatore's crap and he knew who the real boss was! As usual we get a super sweet epilogue. We also got a bonus story with Gio and Emma which was a good read as well. I was curious about Gio from the first book and so happy he got his own story and woman to breed with. Gio was so cute when he first met Emma. He was shy and tongue tied which I didn't expect from a mafia man.  If you are long time readers of Alexa Riley you will definitely enjoy this story.
