Cold. Ruthless. Killer.

I am respected and feared by all.

I wasn’t put on this earth to love or be loved. I was put here to wipe out every last member of the damn Abandonato mafia, to pay them back for my mother’s death.

When I find a strange girl hiding, beaten, under my bed, I don’t let her live out of compassion.
She’s a trinket, my plaything.


I thought Alessio was only one more man who wanted to use me, hurt me, and throw me away. I don’t know what it is to trust anymore. I can’t find my heart under the pain.

Alessio found it. He touched it, and brought it alive again.

But if he discovers just how dangerous I am to him…I’ll lose my life.

The Mafia And His Angel: Part 1 by Lylah James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Mafia and His Angel is an exciting page turner. Ayla escapes from her home, and ends up under Alessio’s bed. He decides to keep her and have her work for him. Ayla is secretive, scared, and has no real reference for feelings other than terror. Ayla was nearly child like in learning about how different life is compared to what she knows. Alessio was hard to love. He is a magnificent anti-hero.

The Mafia and his Angel was a bit difficult for me to get into. The first few chapters were exciting and it hit a bit of a lull before grabbing me once again. The book is a bit drawn out, with odd interactions I didn’t quite understand. The characters are fun and intriguing. The Mafia and his Angel is shocking and leaves you breathless. I’m very excited about the next installment!
