I Liked It!
I’m a sucker for mafia romances, so when Omerta showed up on my news feed a few days ago on sale, I was intrigued and grabbed it, and I’m so glad I did.
Omerta is full of blood, revenge, and power struggles, but it also is an amazing love story as well. Mia and Carlo may not have met under the best of circumstances, and their relationship may have changed throughout the years, but anyone around them knew that they were going to end up together and the lie that Carlo put together to keep Mia safe was going to blow up in their faces.
One thing I really enjoyed about this story was how strong Mia was. This girl wasn’t dealt the easiest hand in life with her parents, and instead of letting it make her weak, she let it make her stronger. As things continued to try to bring her down in life, they only pushed to make her stronger. Everyone who seemed to come across her seemed to think she couldn’t handle things and she proved them wrong time and time again. She may have been young, but the amount of things she has gone through and dealt with in this book are more than anyone should ever have to deal with. Watching her grow in this book was absolutely amazing and I loved watching her grow into an even more confident woman and a take charge kind of girl in this book.
Carlo on the other hand was always a solitary man, in charge of the mafia and never let anyone get close, until Mia showed up in his life. He fought hard to not let her in, but she slowly broke down his walls, and I loved watching how much Mia changed him. He was still cold and calculated when it came to business, but seeing him be fun and banter with her was beautiful and watching them have fun when things weren’t so serious was a great addition to this book when sometimes things could get dark.
This story was a great start to what I think is going to be an amazing series. There was definitely a lot of blood and revenge, and both of these characters grew tremendously in this book. Watching them become so close and seeing how powerful they are when they are together was awesome to see. Watching Mia take charge when she had too, and watching them start to grow as a couple made me want to see where they go as well as where this mafia family goes in the future. I have already one-clicked the next book to see what happens next!
