He’s wealthy and ruthless.
She’s poor and alone.

Cesare is the underboss of the notorious Italian mafia, the New York Syndicate.
Kinsey is his best friend from childhood, and the one woman he has never forgotten.

Life has pulled them apart, yet an impending mafia war is pushing them back together.
But maybe it’s too late for a second chance once Cesare discovers Kinsey’s current secret?

This novella is an introduction into the anarchic Syndicate world. For full-length illicit and forbidden love stories, read the best-selling Chicago Syndicate series by Soraya Naomi.

This story was incredibly short, which makes sense as it is meant to act as a prequel to the Chicago Syndicate series (I think). However, this was briefly about the New York Syndicate and I can’t wait to see how it’s supposed to tie-in. Will the author be giving us a new series based in New York perhaps? Although we’re given the story of Cesare and Kinsey’s relationship through flashbacks, it was at once enlightening because it explained their connection and the years they stood strong together but it was also disappointing because I needed more of their present in order to believe in their future. I was unable to completely become invested in these characters and yet I would love the opportunity to see more of them. I guess what I’m trying to say is that there was enough here to make a full-length novel about these characters. The boss, Michael, suffered greatly and I’d love a story that concerns him dealing with his loss and finding his way through his grief.

Now I’m ready for what’s next from this author - The Lawyer and the Tramp, which comes out October 3, 2017.
