When my twin brother Jayce orders a hit on Arabella Wilson—the daughter of our family’s greatest rival—I have no choice but to obey. Or so I let him think. What he doesn’t know is Arabella isn’t just the enemy … she’s also the only woman I’ve ever loved. She might be guilty of yanking my bleeding heart right out of my chest, but she doesn’t deserve to die.

The longer I delay carrying out Jayce’s orders, the more erratic he becomes, until he issues an ultimatum I can’t ignore: either I kill Arabella or he kills me. And since that’s not how my story ends, I have a choice to make. I’m a killer. It’s what I do. So who lives, and who dies? Will it be my brother or my lover, my darkness or my light?

Find out in this sexy mafia romance inspired by Romeo & Juliet.

The Ties That Bind is a Romeo & Juliet inspired mafia book that I completely devoured in one sitting. It’s got the classic love story with more violence. Think Leo DiCaprio movie style.

Jayce is the enforcer for his twin bother in their mafia family but when he’s ordered to kill the love of his life, he’s forced to choose between his brother or his love. The catch? Their past and heartbreak ended a while ago and she isn’t in his life right now, he knows he would never let her go.

I always love the taboo relationships that have the enemy families with “star-crossed lovers.” One thing that was a huge surprise to me and what I loved the most was Arabella and who she is today. Combined with the dangerous Jayce, these two are explosive.

While this can be read as a standalone, I was introduced to it as the movie script that plays an integrate role in Norinne’s most recent release, Lucky Star. I wondered if I would only like the story because I read that first but I’ll be honest, I think I would have rather read this one first. Either way, I liked them both.

If you want true love with mafia action, then this is the book for you! It’s quick, spicy and dangerous!
