Villainous Kingpin by Eva Winners
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

NOTE: At the very least, you should begin this series by reading the prequel, Corrupted Pleasure, as is recommended by the author (and me lol) but if you want an even better reading experience in this world, you should start with the Belles & Mobsters series.

This series is my first experience with this author, and I’m addicted already. No, I haven’t had the reading time to go back and begin with the Belles and Mobsters and it was a slow start with me with the prequel, Corrupted Pleasure, but this story solidified what I had become to notice about this author, and I am here for it all! I like how she mixes the drama of a mafia romance with what I refer to as #feelfest of a romance journey. Basilio and Wynter’s story was in constant motion one way or the other. You really need to pay attention or you’ll find yourself a bit overwhelmed with everything that’s happening in the story but one of the aspects that makes this story so great is the chaos of it all and without giving away the plot itself, just know there are twist to the twists, the action is constant, and love wins 🙂

I’m completely invested in everyone right now and can easily see myself shutting out the world and binge-reading every story Eva Winners has ever penned soon! Thank goodness for Kindle Unlimited or I would need a second job LOL

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

Villainous Kingpin is book one of the Kingpins of the Syndicate Series. It’s a insta-love, mafia romance. I highly recommend reading the Belles and Mobsters Series as they interconnect with this series or at least reading the prequel Corrupted Pleasure so you get to know the supporting characters better. This story focuses on Basilio and Wynter.

Basilio is dark, possessive, protective, but also has a vulnerable side that only Wynter could see. I felt really bad for him and the trauma he endured growing up. Wynter is his light and brings out his more easy going side. She’s genuine, strong, smart, and excels with anything she puts her mind to. These two had great chemistry and even though the odds were stacked against them, they were always meant to be.

Their journey is loaded with drama, secrets, romance, action, and twists. The story was easy to read, entertaining and had strong supporting characters. There were a few gaps in the story, but I think we will learn more about the situation in future character’s books, specifically Priest’s. And I’m totally intrigued with Dante and Juliette. Again, I highly recommend reading at least Corrupted Pleasure otherwise you may get a little confused.
