Dino DeLuca is one of my favorite characters to grace the pages of any novel by Bethany-Kris. Although it is not necessary to have read The Chicago War series prior to Waste of Worth, I am so glad I did. That is where I first met Dino, and I have been craving more of him ever since. Bethany-Kris did not disappoint.
This story gives a phenomenal insight into Dino, who he is, and how he got there. Bethany-Kris develops such intrigue around Dino that I literally could not stop reading. His position in the mafia demands respect and status...but does he have it? Does he want it? Is he happy in life or just going through the motions? These are all things that ran through my mind until he met Karen. Karen answers so many things for Dino. However, she enters into his world unsuspectingly of what surrounds him. What is in store for them? You will have to read to find out.
Thank you, Bethany-Kris. You have given me yet another favorite mafia couple. I highly recommend this novel to mafia romance readers.
To those who love a damaged hero with such a sweet heart, a heroine with a strong backbone, this is the book for you. Love this book so much! *Would recommend reading The Chicago Outfit series first. Get the full experience ;)
