Book Review: Boss by Tara Oakes


******This book is intended for mature audiences, over 18 years of age 

This book is a sequel, Book 2 in the Chianti Kisses series. 

 Everybody expects something of Dom, they have his entire life. His family expects HIM to lead, provide, and support them. His company and employees expect him to keep their business successful, intact. His wife, V, expects him to be the best man he can be. 

 And then there are the expectations of his father and his "associates."

 Dom's father, although long past, had left unfulfilled expectations of his own. Everything he built, bled for, killed for... died for, was left in Dom's hands.

 Dom tried to change things, set things straight, atone for the sins of his father and father-in-law. But, it hasn't been easy. Many others benefited from his business dealings, and aren't willing to loose them so easily. 

 Emilio Rizzo has vowed to keep things the way they were. He's waged a war to take full control from Dom, with no concern for the toll it will take on everyone involved. Innocents will be harmed, lives will be taken, and hard-earned progress will be lost unless Dom steps in and fights the way he was born to.

 Someone will be disappointed. Will it be his family, his employees, his father, or his beloved V, when he becomes...

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

“They’re all wrong.  This can’t be bad.  How can something be a sin if it feels like heaven?”

“I feel anger building.  Rejection starting to fester like water on the brink of boiling.”

“’I’m here baby.  I’ll always be here.’  His words soothe me, but it’s the unspoken emotion, the fact that he says this with a bold certainty that assures me completely.”

My Review:

Boss was not as steamy as the first book in the series, Baby V, but provided a heaping helping of intrigue and suspense instead.  It was a quick read as I could not put it down.  And as always with Tara Oakes, Boss was well written, addicting, and involving, so much so - my body was tight with tension due to the taut story-line.  I am totally invested now and have many unanswered questions swirling around my little pea brain, book 3 cannot come soon enough.
