About the Book
He was a vision of power and privilege.
Ruthless arrogance personified.
A total stranger and an irresistible challenge.
I approached him in a busy casino and felt the sting of his brutal rejection.
Then I did something incredibly brazen. Impulsive. Reckless.
I stole from him.
The object was inconsequential, only worth a handful of dollars.
I didn’t do it for the money; it was about making a statement.
I went back home thousands of miles away without giving him a second thought until I spotted those quicksilver eyes glaring at me across a busy nightclub.
It was too impossible to be a coincidence.
Yet, there he was, seething with a violent promise of retribution.
He thought he’d intimidate me.
Hunt me down and make me pay.
What he didn’t realize was I don’t scare easily.
My name is Giada Genovese, and I’m a goddamn mafia princess.

I mean, what’s better than a character driven romance? Especially in the age of COVID and needing a little break from reality. And uhm, did you see that cover? Because I’m obsessed with it! But this book was just so yummy and amazing and steamy and well thought out! Which is sometimes hard to come by in a romance.
Now, this is book four in TheFive Families series, but if you’re like me it’s book one. And that’s ok because Impossible Odds can be read as a standalone. But it also means that you’re going to want to go and get the other three books to catch up. And what really made me feel like I need to read the others in the series is just how well drawn out the characters are. It’s not just pure lust and no story, we get some background, we get some story, and don’t worry there’s still some steam! So, as you can see, there is a lot to love about this one.
Because of the nature of romance books, I think I look towards epic levels of character development over anything else. And I really loved the characters in this one and even though I’ve finished the book I still want to know more about them. And that doesn’t stand for just out main characters, I love the entire cast! So this was definitely a win for me and I’m really glad I introduced myself to this series!
