Raphael by Eva Winners

Title: Raphael
Series: Belles & Mobsters #5
Author: Eva Winners
Genre: Steamy Mafia Romance
Release Date: September 1, 2022

 

Raphael Santos. 
A criminal. 
The devil. 

The man was definitely suave and charismatic.
The way he looked at me made me shiver but his eyes rattled something deep inside me.

I hated him with every fiber of my being. His family destroyed mine. His father started a chain reaction that could never be undone. The Santos family ruled the underworld of Florida. They were powerful, vicious, and ruthless. Mine had once ruled D.C.

He may have secrets, but I have secrets of my own. An innocent boy who I’ll protect with my dying breath. My son.

Raphael devises a plan to get what we both want, and without any other options, I reluctantly agree. Even if I know there will be consequences regardless of the outcome.

But in his darkness, a fire burns brighter. Passion grows hotter. Love grows stronger.

Now, we have no choice but to finish this. Together.

Raphael by Eva Winners
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

***Review copy requested and reviewed on behalf of OMGReads Blog***

Raphael is book five of the Belles and Mobsters Series. This is a dark, mafia romance that can be read as a standalone, but personally I would start from book one as the stories interconnect. Fair warning, there are lots of triggers. The plot focuses on Raphael Santos and Sailor McHale.

Sailor was sassy, brave, determined but she was also facing challenges from her trauma and unaddressed grief. She was on a mission to take down the cartel and their associates. Raphael was intimidating, protective, deadly, and calculated. He’s out for revenge against new and old enemies. He’s also on a mission to claim his brother and Sailor.

You could feel the chemistry between these two and their sexual tension was palpable. Their journey to find each other again was long. The story contained twists, suspense, action, angst, revenge, a lot of dark elements and violence. Again…be warned there are lots of triggers through out this book.
