Blurb

 

I figli devono pagare per le colpe dei padri

(Children must pay for the sins of the fathers)

Robert Stone has an identity. After discovering his father, a far greater dynasty was forged.

But with this dynasty comes new enemies.

From the olive groves of Italy to the boardrooms in Washington, D.C., Robert is to command a business like no other.

Not all wars are fought on a battlefield, most are won in the corporate arena.

Not all wars are bloody – unless you threaten Robert’s family, of course.

Told from Robert Stone and Rocco Sartorri’s point of view, Fallen Angel, Part 5 picks up from the end of Part 4 and explores a unique relationship.

Two powerful men, both with secrets and enemies, come together in this explosive story of revenge, lost love, and hate that spans thirty years.

A Mafia romantic suspense for readers over the age of 18

 

 

 

 

 

Excerpt

 

Robert – Chapter One

It was in a small room in a villa in Tuscany that my life changed forever–again.

Everything I knew, or believed, had been a lie. Just over Forty years of thinking one man was my father, and that he had been killed with my mother, was disproved with a simple DNA test. I barely remembered him; I hardly remembered my mother. Just a week after discovering the letters, I’d found the man who would protect my wife, who was the love of Evelyn’s life, was also my biological father. To say my head had been fucked up was an understatement.

****

“Do you want to talk?” I heard. I had been sitting on the edge of the fountain in the courtyard of the villa.

I looked up to see Brooke walking toward me. I patted the wall.

“Sit with me,” I said.

She picked up my hand and threaded her fingers through mine as she did. I stared at her for a moment. Her blue eyes were ringed, faintly, with dark circles and laugh lines fanned out across her skin. She looked tired and I guessed my overactive brain working day and night had been the cause of that.

“How do you feel today?” she asked gently.

I sighed and closed my eyes; I raised my face to catch the last of the day’s sun before I spoke.

“Better. One minute I have no biological family; the next, I have a father, a half brother and a half sister. It’s been a little difficult to process all that,” I confessed.

“No shit,” she replied, with a chuckle.

I turned to look at her. I shifted my body until I was facing her and traced my fingers down her cheek.

“I’ve been a complete prick this past week, haven’t I?”

She tried to hide the smirk. “I know of Mr. Angry, Mr. Playful, Mr. Sarcastic, and all the other misters that make up Robert Stone, but I’m a little unsure who’s with us right now.”

“Mr. Honest?” I offered.

“Ah, it could be. Therefore the answer would be, yes, you have been a complete prick this week. But with good reason, Robert,” she said.

I laughed quietly.

“Have you spoken to him today?”

Initially, after I’d discovered Rocco was my father, we’d talked, he’d cried, but then sadness settled over me. Forty years of memories were shattered on the opening of an envelope that contained evidence and I struggled with it. I’d endured years of abuse at the hands of my aunt, yet I had a father who could have rescued me from her. It was an unrealistic thought, of course, he didn’t know about me, but it bothered me.

Review: Fallen Angel Part 1 by Tracie Podger

I’ve finally started to bring my reviews from Relaxed Reads over to Lou’s Book Blog. I think this is a process that will take me quite some time, there’s a lot of reviews over there. I’m updating the layouts, graphics and links but I’m not changing anything else.

This review reads as though I’ve only just read it when In fact I read this in May 2016!!

~~Synopsis~~

On the first day of her holiday to Washington, DC, Brooke Stiles meets Robert Stone.

Dark eyed, damaged and dangerous – Stone has never had a normal relationship for fear of his past being exposed. Not knowing how to respect nor love, he struggles with his feelings for a woman who makes him question everything that he is.

Brooke falls in love with him and as their relationship grows she learns who he really is. Her future is set. She is to heal her man and mend his broken soul. But can she do the one thing that he asks?

This is a story of an ordinary woman who falls in love with an extraordinary man and has to discover whether she is strong enough to forgive him his past.

Contemporary Romance for readers over 18 – this is the first book in the Fallen Angel series, a Mafia Romance containing graphic scenes of sex.

So what is the Fallen Angel series…

This is a mafia ‘romance’, with the emphasis on the romance. The four books are narrated by Brooke, a British woman who travels to Washington, DC, and falls in love. This is her story, her journey into a world she has only ever seen in a movie. As is traditional, Brooke will be shielded from any ‘mafia’ activity, she won’t know what’s going on, what she finds out will be a surprise. Please don’t go into this book expecting a gun-slinging mafia moll from the 1950’s 🙂 This is a modern take on what the mafia are now, in the twenty-first century. There is a reason for the title, you’ll discover this throughout the books. There are four books in this story so, no, you won’t know it all in book one.

I wanted to explore what it would be like for me, or you, to fall into a world we have no knowledge of. It’s my belief that perhaps, as British women, we wouldn’t take it seriously, perhaps we’d find it exciting. Our major reference into that world is a movie made a lot of years ago 🙂

I hope you enjoy the read.

This book is not paranormal, has nothing to do with angels, fallen or otherwise.

~~My Review~~

I’ve heard so many good things about The Fallen Angel Series by Tracie Podger, I was glad to have finally gotten around to starting this series.

Brooke has gone to America to visit her best friend Sam. She’s just come out of a long-term relationship and isn’t looking for another man, she just wants to spend some quality time with her best friend.

She arrives in America and heads to Sam’s work to wait for him to finish. She heads into the office kitchen to make a coffee, whilst she’s waiting when she suddenly has the feeling she’s being watched.  Brooke soon finds out that she just encountered Robert Stone; Sam’s elusive boss. The events that follow successfully turn Brooke’s life upside down. There is more to Robert than meets the eye.

Brooke comes across as a nice down to earth kind of girl. She works hard and doesn’t want to let people down, she also knows that something is missing. She loves Sam and his partner Scott, she feels guilty when circumstances prevent her from spending as much time with them as she’d originally wanted to.

Robert is a hard man to work out. He has so many secrets and has built some seriously high protective walls around him and his family. He likes to be in control. When Brooke comes into his world his control is tested. Robert is also very protective of those he cares about.

These two make a good team and balance each other out. The other characters are also really good and they complete the overall group dynamic well. I loved how none of the characters were flat or one-dimensional, they all have they’re own layers and secrets to be discovered.

The plot is good, it has a good steady pace, it’s full of twists and unexpected turns. Tracie has created a wonderfully realistic world for these fantastic characters. She feeds you all the pieces of an intricately woven web of secrets, and leaves you wanting more!

I’m glad I’ve finally popped my Fallen Angel cherry and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.

Great starting point Tracie!

~Excerpt~

Something felt off as I opened my eyes. I was lying, fully clothed, on top of the duvet but there was no warmth. There was no body curled in behind me, no warm breath on my neck, and no strong arms wrapped around me. His absence was immediately felt.

“Jackson,” I called out as I sat up.

There was no reply and I stared towards the bathroom, listening for sounds of the shower running. Perhaps he hadn’t heard me. I climbed from the bed and made my way to the living room. The apartment felt empty, and without needing to look any further, I knew he had left.

I made my way to the kitchen and set the kettle to boil, placed two teaspoons of tea in a pot, and waited for the water. I hated the silence of my empty apartment. I hated more that Jack was gone. It wouldn’t be the first time he’d left before I’d woken, he would return with pastries and coffee, but that morning my gut was telling me something was wrong. I reached for my phone, still charging on the countertop, and brought up his number. I dialled. The call went straight to voicemail and I left a message.

“Jack, I’m making tea, can you call me?”

When my tea was brewed, I poured a cupful and sat on the sofa. I hated the apartment; I hated the circumstances that had me sitting on my own. I hated more that I was left to deal with its sale alone.

I tried not to think, I wouldn’t look at the mantel above the gas fire that housed photographs and memories. I stared at my phone, waiting for a call or a text message. An hour passed and I began to get anxious.

Jack, can you call me, please? I’m worried about you.

I looked at the text I’d sent waiting for a reply; nothing came. I pulled a comforter from the back of the sofa and wrapped myself up in it. I missed his arms around me; I missed the warmth of his body and the sigh he gave every time he wrapped me in his arms.

Jackson had been my constant, the friend I was in love with, not that I had ever told him that. For the past six months, he’d comforted me, listened to my anguish and the anger that spewed from me. He’d been here day and night, sleeping next to me.

~My Review~

Holy smoke… Where do I start???

Jackson is a fantastic book. Seriously every page was captivating. This book contains a topic which will not be easily read for everyone, that said it is handled extremely well and for those who do read Jackson it will touch your heart!

Jackson is an amazing story in which we see two people fighting their own demons as well as trying to help each other to deal and heal. The question is can they overcome all their demons or will some be too much too handle?

I will not allow myself to discuss the storyline in too much detail for fear of writing spoilers for those that are yet to read Jackson. What I will say is that this story is a journey full of emotion, secrets, guilt and discovery. It will have you completely invested in in these characters and their overall journey.

Jackson and Summer are both suffering for different reasons. As much as these two have been friends for a long time they both have things the other doesn’t know and that is slowly beginning to eat away at them. The two can help each other heal but the road to healing is far from smooth.

This story may contain subject matter that can be hard for some people to read, even I found it difficult at times, but Tracie has written it extremely well and has kept it incredibly real. Tracie has dealt with the issues that do exist in the real world, and that makes it even easier to relate to. Tracie has taken some very real, very painful and heart breaking times and has created a very addictive story, that is enjoyable, heart breaking and enlightening to read.

Tracie’s writing style is as always a pleasure to read and sucks you into the story alongside the characters. I was pulled into Jackson and Summer’s world from the very beginning, and I was held there until the very end. The emotion Tracie has put into this book comes through from both the characters. Every ounce of happiness and pain these two went through I experienced with them as though it was my own. I know these two had their claws in my heart because I actually felt the point at which my heart broke.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Jackson. I can definitely see a book hangover for a while. Just whilst I try and repair my heart. Well done Tracie for creating another compelling story that I’ll be reading time and time again!
