Amie's Review of Kingpin by W.S. Greer ~ BLOG TOUR ~

Title: Kingpin
Series: An Italian Mafia Romance
Author: W.S. Greer
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 2, 2016

Alannah Sullivan met Dominic Collazo when she was only in the fifth grade. She knew him when the other kids called him names and made fun of his over-sized facial features. She knew him when he was a shy introvert with a quick temper. She knew him when he was first introduced to the mob lifestyle by his father, a made man in the St. Louis mafia. Alannah knew Dominic before anybody could see his potential, and she fell in love with him when she was just a teenager... just in time for her family to pack up and move away from the city and the boy she loved.
But, Alannah is back now, and after ten long years, Dominic Collazo is all grown up. No longer the quiet loner, Dominic is larger than life, and every woman’s fantasy. He’s a rich casino owner with the looks of a Greek god, and an alpha male persona to die for. He’s also a captain in the notorious Giordano crime family.
When the two of them meet again in the lobby of Lumiere Place Casino & Hotel, Alannah has no idea that her second chance with Dominic will also be her biggest curse. As drama immediately ensues and bullets start to fly, Alannah has to ask herself if Dominic is worth all the trouble that comes with him.
Would you risk everything to be with the love of your life, even if he’s the mafia’s newest KINGPIN?

“This novel had an authenticity to it that I really enjoyed, and I like that the author didn't write an over-glamorized view of the mafia lifestyle.” - Goodreads Reviewer
“ I seriously can't wait for the next book, this is an amazing start to the series, wish I could give it more than 5*” - Sweet and Spicy Reads
“This book has it all action, humor, sexual chemistry and one sexy alpha!!” - Alpha Book Club


I love how it starts off with Dominic and Alannah in 5th grade - I am a sucker for those childhood sweetheart things !! Alannah is starting a new school and Dominic is the outcast. You know how that goes. They save each other and become best of friends. Sadly after a few years they lose touch and then we get the 10 years later story. I am a big mafia fan - no clue why the violence and blood appeals to me but it does. And Ugly Dominic now not so ugly with all the money and power is a big turn on !! Although they have not spoken for 10 years and their goodbye was not even a good one - these two have never stopped thinking of each other or loving each other. Neither of them put their lives on hold BUT now that they have been reunited there is no way they will let go again. Unless - Is Dominic's lifestyle too much for Alannah ?? Will she be able to deal with the consequences of his job ?? Will Dominic be able to do his job with a clear mind now that Alannah has returned ?? Of course YOU need to read to find out. There is plenty of danger and violence and some serious close calls. Then at the end we have the Kingpin and his Queen - but wait a minute - what is this that I am reading ?? Who is conspiring and what will they do - STAY TUNED
