Blog Tour/Excerpt/Review/Giveaway: For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate #1) by Soraya Naomi


We all have a façade, a concealed mask we wear to portray ourselves to the world. 

Fallon’s mask is real, what you see is what you get. Growing up with two loving parents in Chicago, graduating in Chicago, and now working a job she loves, she enjoys her life. 

Her untarnished world is shaken when Luca crosses her path. 

Luca’s mask is tightly controlled. Distrust, rivalry, and violence rule his life.

When confronted with insecurities, when the one you love wears his mask perfectly, when your life unravels and you don’t know why, do you keep trusting the person you love? 

Everyone has a façade. Everyone has an ulterior motive.

His gaze is piercing through me. He tilts his head and arcs one brow in silent question, Need any help?
I almost imperceptibly nod my head.
Mystery man speaks to his company, who’s leaning with his back against the bar. The other guy whips his head around to look at me and is obviously not agreeing with his friend’s intention to intervene. He disregards his friend’s comment and comes over to Nick and me. He walks right up to us to place a secure arm around my waist, tucking me gently into his side and turning slightly, so I’m engulfed in his one arm embrace. His breath strokes over my temple while he speaks. “I’m taking her for a dance.” His deep, throaty voice which exudes sensuality fits him perfectly in his tailored suit. The guy glowers at Nick, daring Nick to defy him. His intimidating stance has Nick backing off instantly, and he leads us both away with his arm firmly holding my middle.
I don’t even look back at Nick. My eyes are glued to this man. My mouth quirks up in a smile as he shows me an enthralling sidelong grin.

When I’m about to ask his name, he halts. “You’re welcome,” he whispers the words against my ear. And again, he strolls away.

 My Review
3.5- 4 Deceptive Stars!

For Fallon is book 1 in the Chicago Syndicate series and Soraya Naomi's debut novel. After reading and loving Soraya's reviews I was surprised and excited when she announced that she would be releasing a book.I loved the way she wrote her reviews and was anxious to read what she would write.I love mafia romances and have read a lot and I'm always looking for something new and I really enjoy great twists in the story and a book that makes me wasn't to keep reading and never stop. If you enjoy love stories that arent all lovey dovey, which have a mix of deception, lies, murder, twists and much more this is a book for you.

“Love must not suffocate, but breathe on its own.”

Fallon lives with her best friend and works for a charity as a copyeditor.Oh and the best part..She loves to read and tea! Helloo my fav things book and tea!! Anyways back to the story..Fallon and Luca meet at a club.Fallon can't take her eyes off of him and it seems like it's the same for Luca.Or is it?

After their first meeting they seem to keep bumping into each other and so begins the start of their steady relationship.Its a slow buildup and you get to know the characters and how the relationship develops.It was a little slow for me and took me a while to read it.The second half of the book picks up and I found it a lot better and I kept turning pages and couldn't stop reading until I hit the end. Thanks Soraya! That cliffhanger though :O I did not expect that ending and now I want more!

I love dual POVs when they are done right and this was so done right! I liked that we had both the POVs as it helped explain alot of things. Second half or parts of the second half Fallon annoyed me. I know that in that situation you aren't thinking rationally and you do stupid stuff and that she didn't know what was going on in Luca's head so she couldn't know what I knew but omg she should have known. This is not making sense or maybe it is?

I'm looking forward to the next book in the series and any other books Soraya writes ;)

About the Author: Soraya Naomi

Soraya Naomi resides in Europe with her entrepreneur fiancé. She attended university in The Netherlands.

Although she reads many genres, she favors intense, dark, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely without remorse or boundaries. 

She has a passionate obsession for the written word and indulges in chocolate pastries much too often. 

There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. 
Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.
― Stephen King
