“I won’t survive you, Little Red.”
Because You’re Mine is an action-packed mafia romance by one of my all-time favorite contemporary romance authors, Claire Contreras. When professional ballet dancer Catalina Masseria finds herself caught up in the aftermath of her mafia family’s drama when she collides hard with Lorenzo Costello. Loren has had his eye on Cat for a while. When he has the opportunity to make her his, he won’t stop until every obstacle is out of his way. But when Cat finds out the truth, will she stay with him or will she run away?
“We’re only here for a moment. Might as well make it a good one.”
Told in dual POV, Because You’re Mine is a gripping read with passion, action, and complex characters. The plot is quite intricate as the stakes are high for both characters to build trust and find peace in the chaotic world of the mafia. The text is rich with emotions and the circumstances keep the tempo driving at a fast pace the entire read.
Overall, I highly recommend Because You’re Mine to anyone who enjoys a mafia romance with complex characters and an intriguing plot. I have long been a fan of Ms. Contreras’ creative genius. Her versatile writing style and commitment to her work continue to amaze me.
