Product Description

Family meant everything.

Good, bad, right, wrong, legal, illegal—none of that mattered when it came to family. Family was and always would be number one.

Catarina Lambardoni stayed on the legal side of the family businesses by running Lambardoni Enterprises. Professionally, she was beyond successful. In her personal life, however, she was not, having just walked in on her boyfriend cheating on her.

Jag Maratelli, the boss’s right hand, worked extremely hard to sustain his position in the family and honored it with his life. When he was summoned to the East Coast for an unexpected meeting, a chance encounter with Catarina and one look into the fire within her made him a very determined man.

The chemistry between the two scorched hot, and Jag had been with enough women to know Catarina was something special, something he couldn’t allow himself to walk away from. Life had other ideas, though, when a betrayal in the family sent him two thousand miles away from her while danger lurked closer than anyone realized.

Would their connection be strong enough for both of them to pursue more?

Or would people and events from the past and present make that choice for them?

This is a well told story by Ryan Michele. It appears she can write anything and pull it off with flare and style. Loved that Catarina was a kick ass character and loved Jag's romantic heart and loyalty! Looking forward to Kiera's story next:)

4.0 out of 5 stars A hot and sexy mafia romance! 27 October 2015
By chrissycf - Published on

Do you love mafia romances as much as I do? If the answer is yes... definitely consider picking up a copy of Blood & Loyalties today.

Catarina is the daughter of the second in charge of the Lambardonis family. She's on the right (law abiding) side of the business, but knows there are things are different on the other side of the business. When she finds her boyfriend cheating on her, she goes off on him and shows her true strength. I don't think anyone would mess with Catarina after seeing what she did to her ex, or for who her family is.. but this guy thought it was a good idea. When her brother Val is called in for clean up of the mess she made, she was not happy to see him, but was intrigued by his friend Jag. When Val and Catarina get into a heated debate at the club, she storms off for not being able to live her life. See.. Catarina has guards following her all the time, she can't do anything without them knowing, and her family is just as bad. No one is ever allowed to get close and she's frustrated that she won't ever find "the one".

Jag is immediately drawn to Catarina but is warned off of her by Val. No one really tells Jag what to do, so he pursues Catarina. When Jag and Catarina get together it is hot and full of sexiness. The connection between these two is instant, and the chemistry between them is off the charts. I adored Jag and Catarina together. He's on one side of the business, and she's on the other. He can't talk to her about much of his work, and she understands that. Catarina is strong and can stick up for herself, and she proves that to Jag before everything seems to go to crap for them.

The back and forth between Jag and Catarina was amazing, and I loved how they got to know each other for a while, even when separated. I just wish this part of the book wouldn't have been sped up as much as it was. I would have loved to have seen Catarina's thought process when things got worse in her life, instead of hearing about it past tense. I also wish she would have told someone, anyone about what was going on, instead of endangering more people. For such a smart and tough girl, she made a pretty big mistake.

The strength of the love that Jag has for Catarina is amazing. He's a fierce man when it comes to business, but the way he treats Catarina as if she's the most precious thing in the world is definitely swoonworthy. I adored how their story came to and end, and will definitely be looking forward to more amazing books about this family. Jag and Catarina are an amazing couple, and their story is strong and passionate. I highly suggest one-clicking your copy of this hot and sexy (and maybe a bit bloody) mafia romance today!

Blood & Loyalties
By: Ryan Michele
4/5 stars

The Lambardoni family runs a large enterprise that spans all across the United States. Catarina Lambardoni, the only daughter, amongst her brothers, to the underboss of the family, grew up knowing about the type of business her family was a part of. Though she can’t be involved in the family business, because of her gender, it doesn’t mean that she hasn’t picked up things along the way. Her brothers made sure that she could use a gun well and knew how to protect herself. However, they are so protective over her that she doesn’t always get the chance to use her self-defense skills or date any good men. Her brothers scare men off or dissuade them from even trying to date her. She needs someone who isn’t afraid to stand up to her family.

Jag Maratelli works for the Lambardoni family and is the consigliere. But he’s not well known around the area since he runs the family distribution business in California. When he sees Catarina for the first time he is taken by her beauty & ferocity. He wants to know her better and in more ways than one. However, this is something that could cause tension since she is family, he won’t be in town long term and she won’t move to California. Despite everything that works against them, they get close to each other and form a relationship.

But past sins of fathers come back to haunt the young couple. This causes a physical separation since Jag has to find the men causing problems. More things happen which puts more time between them and now, emotional separation. Their road back to each other may not be easy, but it is something that will happen.

I liked this book, but it felt like it was missing something compared to Ryan’s Ravage MC series. There were some parts that seemed like they were added, just to create a little bit of drama, that didn’t seem to go with the storyline. But I liked it well enough and will most likely read the rest of this series.

Catarina works on the legal side of her family's business. She assumes some of their dealings are illegal, but she knows that family, blood and loyalty are what's important. On the night she catches her boyfriend cheating, her world is knocked off balance when she meets Jag. He runs the California portion of her family's business and he makes her feel things no other man ever has.

Jag works very hard and is loyal to his family. His dad was best friends with the boss before he was murdered. Jag is now the boss' right hand guy and realizes the moment he sets eyes on Catarina that's she's the one he's been looking for. It only makes her more attractive that when he meets her, she's just basically beaten up her cheating boyfriend. He wants her and is determined to figure out how to make it work since they live in different states.

When an emergency demands his attention back home he has to leave. He thinks Catarina is safe, but the danger is closer to her than anyone thought.

I loved Jag. He's a mafia, hot bada$$ and his feelings towards Catarina were clear that first night. He didn't play games and made it no secret how he felt towards her. Even when her brother tried to warn him off her, Jag never backed down and keep after Catarina.

I liked Catarina for the most part but she makes a mistake keeping a secret that I had a hard time believing she'd be stupid enough to do. Growing up in the mafia and having her father, uncle and brothers as protective of her as they were, I realistically couldn't see how she'd not go to at least one of them. But that aside, I liked her fire and strength. She was perfect for Jag and I liked them together!

I'm looking forward to Kiera's story next. I think she and Rex will be perfect for each other and I anticipate her being as feisty as Catarina.

Blood& Loyalties by Ryan Michele is the perfect mafia Romance book it has a bit of suspense mixed with romance.

We start off meeting Catarina Lambardoni who is one of the bosses daughter, she runs the legal side of the family business she takes no crap from anybody, and while in a bar catching her boyfriend cheating we get to witness that in full force.

Catarina has the best of everything money , power, respect but one thing is missing.... That one certain someone who she can love.

Jag Maratelli is the bosses right hand man running the west coast side of the Lambardoni family. Trust and loyalty is number one and Jag will risk anything including his own life ,so when word gets out that betrayal has hit in the east coast he is first to go sort it out.

When Jag and Catarina lay eyes on each other sparks fly and the chemistry between these two is so explosive but will the great hot sex be enough for them to survive?
Will family ties get in the way?

When danger comes close to Home Jag is summoned to go back to the west coast but can this relationship work long distance?

Being this is a mafia related story Ryan gives us twists and turns and plenty of suspense with danger lurking where no one sees coming but have no fear because as with any of Ryan's writing she does not disappoint.

I really enjoyed this story it was so well written it kept me intrigued from the beginning till the end and I'm really hoping maybe we can "beg" for more because I really can see some characters who I'd love to see in a book written about them.

Don't miss out on yet another great read from Ryan grab your copy today.
4.0 out of 5 stars Ryan Michele does keep you guessing with this one as to who is threatening Catarina. 27 October 2015

Catarina and Jag meet right after she dumps her cheating boyfriend, Antonio, and gets her retribution before Jag and her brother Val show up. Catarina is pretty spoiled and allows her family to control her every move, but claims she is getting her independence. Jag is a boss who lives in California and deals with her family's shipping lines. Jag and Catarina find themselves drawn to each other and Jag sets about getting Catarina to fall for him. Catarina is resistant to move forward with Jag. You kind of have to take a leap of insta love with this book. Catarina, for a woman who is 30 really does make some stupid decisions in this book that have you wondering if she has a brain cell in her body. She is mobbed up and has bodyguards yet believes the photos she is given without consulting with anyone and allows this person to terrorize her for months without a word. Her rages were just childish and didn't fit in with a girl who was supposedly a bada**. The whole sharing a housing compound with her family and even a house with her cousin was just over the top for me. The girl was treated and acted like she was 8. Jag did what he did best for her family and tries to protect Catarina but she leaves him in the dark for several months and when he finds out he allows her to have her tantrum. Her father and brothers calling her to task in front of them all of the time at their house got old. She had no backbone and was "grateful" they were going to try to let her spread her wings. I did like trying to figure out who the stalker was and what they were after. Overall a good read but Catarina was a hard character for me to like personally.
