Product Description

Francesca Morelli.

Sweet as sin, like the cupcakes she slings at the Morelli bakery. Her sweetness and killer looks are what reeled me in, but her unexpected vulnerability really sealed my fate. I don't care if there’s a war brewing between our families. I don’t care if I have to go through her evil dictator of a brother. I will break down Francesca Morelli’s walls, I will make her mine, and I’ll keep her—no matter the cost.

Salvatore Castellanos.

If good men exist, I’ve certainly never met one—until the day my brother’s rival sauntered into my bakery. Raised around manipulation and unimaginable dysfunction, I know better than to invest in dishonest, dangerous men. I also know Salvatore is exactly that type of man—only, it turns out he isn’t. After years spent living in a shell, Salvatore opens me back up. He’s sexy and sincere, making well-intended promises he’ll never be able to keep. Even knowing he’ll ultimately break my heart, I can’t resist falling for him.

But tensions are rising between our families, and whichever side wins, I know our love won’t make it out alive. Salvatore may be a man accustomed to getting what he wants, but as much as I wish otherwise, I’m the one thing he can never really have.

*** THIS IS NOT A STANDALONE. This is book four, and read alone it will be confusing and weird. Also, you have to be as invested in the Morellis as you will be after books 1-3 in order to care about the Morelli madness accompanying this love story. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK FIRST, IT WILL BE A BAD TIME. ***

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to collect all of Mariano's Heroes. (And Meg!) 12 July 2017

"Mateo is a soulless, power-hungry monster."
---I read this and Happy-Sighed.
I did!
WHAT is THAT about???!
I think this means I'm #IrreparablyTeamMateo

But I LOVED SAL & FRANCESCA. They were *sweet* together. They were FUNNY!

"Remember how we talked about you making me injure my optic nerves? This is the kind of thing I was talking about."

Poor Francesca has been HURT. This woman... she needed a Sal. He's not just good for her: he's perfect for her. And this made me add a new Team Category.
Problem is, I'm still #TeamVince
And #TeamAdrian
And you know what? I LOVED Meg. I'm #TeamMeg ALL THE WAY.
Now I'm #TeamSalvatore.
This was SOOOO GOOOD. I am so looking forward to book 5!

Of course, before I start I have to say thank you to Sam Mariano but also that I am sorry. Thank you of course for the ARC love. Not a lot of people get the chance at one and I was so happy to be one of them. Sorry because my review has taken forever, but here it is and I hope you like it babe!

Well, folks here goes everything ...

Okay, so first let me say this, I am a hopeless romantic and I want everyone to have their chance at a happy ending or their version of happiness, but I did NOT like Francesca!!! I'm happy to finally meet the Morelli sister, and I did have some pre-conceived notions about her, but I could've done without her.

Part one of Family Ties, is our introduction to Francesca, which I was happy about. I don't know why I had it in my head that she was a middle aged woman, who finally escaped her bastard younger brother, but I did. And I'm happy I was wrong. I guess when I read or hear mob/gangster stories, I think old school, so maybe that's what happened there.

I was excited that she finally got away from Mateo and found her "perfect one" because everybody deserves that, even those in the mob life. Instantly, I loved her because she had spunk and when she finally opened up, she had this bad ass, take no prisoners attitude. She has an ambitious way about her and I always appreciate that in people, especially in women. Boy did my opinion change as the story continued.

As the story unfolds, Francesca becomes this messy ass meddler who seriously pissed me off. You learn how conniving and manipulative she can be in relation to the other books. You see how downright mean she could be, all in the name of sticking her nose in some else's relationship— and quite frankly, I couldn't stand her for it. Now, to her credit she was only trying to make her brother and friend happy, but seriously don't you have your own relationship to be a part of? And I mean, her brother is Mateo, so where else would she learn her evil behavior right?

The best thing about Francesca was Salvatore. He was so flippin dreamy and so flippin charismatic, but I guess I'm attracted to that since I find Mateo sexy as all get out. Salvatore did pisse me off though, since he was Francesca's main enabler, but how can I stay upset with a man so ride or die for his woman? He literally through his own family to the wolves to get and keep his woman. You definitely can't hate on that.

I feel kind of bad for coming down so hard on Francesca because, like me, she's caught up in the Mateo Morelli Matrix. Worse for her though, she was raised in that crap, so it's normal to her almost. Mateo's matrix is a place where you're not sure who in the hell you're supposed to be rooting for and who you're suppose to frickin hate. It's like you know you're in his warped world, but you are too scared to leave it or you just don't want to because it's comfortable. All I know is, his matrix is effing stressful and the people involved, with the exception of a few, are exhausting.

Overall, the story was an amazing look into the intimate side of the Morelli household through the eyes of Francesca. You kind of get to go behind the scenes and get the raw and uncut side of the Morelli family. Not that you didn't get that in the other books, I just feel like because Francesca is the sister, she gives you these emotional glasses to look through. It's almost too much to handle once you're invested in these characters, which is why I'm so pissed off after reading Family Ties.

You will definitely enjoy Francesca and Salvatore's story, but in order to follow the situations, you have to read the first 3 books. I recommend this series because it'll keep you on your toes and keep you guessing as to what's going to happen next. All of the books will have you praying for the best, but expecting the worse. For me, none of the books pissed me off quite like this one. Read them and see what I mean, you're going to have a love/hate relationship with these Morelli messes. So, get to one clicking b****es!!!

I was so excited for the 4th book of The Morelli Family Series to come out. A forbidden, secret romance between two members of opposing Chicago mob families? Sign me up!

Francesca is the only "surviving" sister of mob boss Mateo Morelli, and she longs to find some kind of normal life away from her family. Salvatore Castellanos is next in line to run his family's criminal enterprise, and he's nowhere close to wanting to settle down. But one taste of Francesca's cupcake has him ready to lock her down, and willing to wage war with her family so he can claim her.

Finally we get to see the many sides that make up Francesca. At first I thought she was a complete anomaly of the Morelli Family, but then I totally saw her Morelli side come to life, and I loved it. Sal makes one amazingly hot book husband. He compartmentalizes like a boss. And his desire to keep Francesca safe at all costs is hot and admirable.

In the middle of Sal and Francesca's love story, we also have some amazing scenes with Mateo, Mia and Vince, and the woman people love to hate, Meg. There's no telling what's going to happen in book 5, but I have a feeling it's going to ruin me.

Family Ties (Morelli Family Bk 4)
Sam Mariano

Wow hands down I love this series and can't wait for more. If you've been following along you know this will be Francesca Morelli and Salvatore Castellanos book. Do not read out of order. Due to events in all the books. It's best to read in order or you will be lost.

Francesca Morelli is a woman all to herself as much as she would like to believe. But as with anyone in the Morelli family. When her brother Mateo says jump, what can you do but jump. Except in her bakery that is owned by him, but she has almost free rein inside to run it. A handsome man comes in to buy a cupcake and tries to talk to her. Only she comes to find out he lied about his name. Why because he's a Castellanos. The other rival family in the big city. With all his talk and small jokes she can't be help fall for him. But will he be like her last boyfriend? Or will he prove her wrong and sweep her off her feet? Even worse how will her brother Mateo take the slight of her maybe dating a Castellanos?
