Review/Excerpt: For Luca (Chicago Syndicate #2) by Soraya Naomi

Book 1For Fallon --> My Review 

The story of Fallon and Luca continues and ends....
Betrayal is difficult to overcome when the trust is gone.
Luca did everything for Fallon. But as the underboss of the Chicago Syndicate, he has an entire organization depending on him, and she is a weakness he can no longer afford.

When Fallon’s life continues to unravel, she will need Luca more than ever, but can she move beyond all the lies and deceit?

The pull of love still ties them together, but their secrets have driven them apart. Even after everything that’s happened, Fallon owns Luca’s heart, but the Chicago Syndicate owns his life. 

How can he be with the woman he loves yet still remain loyal to an organization that lives by its own rules, above any law? It’s a choice he can’t afford to make, and when nothing is as it seems, the ultimate decision may mean life or death for Luca.

A romantic suspense.

Excerpt: Luca’s point of view
That evening, James and Salvatore – my Consigliere - meet Adriano and me at my penthouse where the doctor stitches us up and provides us with some pain medicine.
As we stand around my black granite-top kitchen island, I look at their weary faces.
James starts. “Any ideas who did this?”
Adriano answers as he twists his golden lighter between his fingers, “Leggia maybe? We should check with Biagio,”
“I’ll set up a meet with Biagio,” Salvatore offers while sliding onto the barstool.
James looks me in the eye. “I don’t like this. This is the first time our headquarters has been targeted. It could’ve been Leggia’s doing, but I have my doubts.”
“So do I,” I agree.
“I want you two to get some rest for a couple of days,” James orders and points to Adriano and me. “And we don’t meet in public for a couple of weeks. Capito?” Understand?
We nod and part. Everyone back to their own life.
James will be welcomed by his wife, Alessa. Salvatore’s Julia waits for him. Adriano will be happy with a whore. And I’m alone. Without her.
As much as I want to, I can’t refrain from reaching out, so I text and call her a few times during the weekend, but not one word from Fallon.


My Review

4 Luca Stars!

See what I did there?
I know.Total genius ;)

This is book 2 and final book for Fallon and Luca's story of the 'Chicago Syndicate' series and it carries on from the cliffhanger that we finished at in the previous book. This continues with the dual povs so we get an insight to both Luca and Fallon's life since they aren't always together especially after what happened in book 1 and how Fallon reacted to everything. I was skeptical when starting this book it could have gone both ways Loved or hated. I wasn't too keen on Fallon's character and the way she reacted.At the start of this book she basically annoyed me and I wanted to shake her and scare GET OVER IT! but obviously that's not how it should. Someone work out a way we can manhandle fictional characters and get back to me thanks :D

“My love for you hasn’t mysteriously evaporated into nothingness. It’s still there. It’s deep, but it’s tainted now, buried under a layer of mistrust and lies.”

But Soraya you did it. By half way I think..something like that Fallon changed well, developed and I actually started liking her Phew! And Luca ahhh what to say about Luca. Some parts he did some stupid things but hey dont all characters? I understood why he did it though because he didn't know Fallon's side of the story which was her fault. So much trouble could have been saved if she had just told him what was going on. Communication is key! But their relationship was started on secrets and lies which is never the way to go which is what Luca and Fallon both find out.

'I just want her close to me. All. The. Fucking. Time. I’m like an addict who’s missed his fix for too long.'

I thought this book might be slow at first but it wasn't and when the action and everything happened omg I was just so into it, flipping through it wanting to know what would happen next.There were a lot of parts I never saw coming which is always awesome!Fallon and Luca needed each other and they did love each other even when they denied it.They may have started on lies but their love was true no matter where they would go it would always play a big part in their life.

I really enjoyed this and can't wait to read more of Soraya's books especially For Adriano! Excited to see what will happen especially after finding out about who Camilla is.

About Author

I was born in South America in 1984 and raised in Europe where I presently reside with my fiancé.
I read many genres but favor intense, dark, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely, without remorse or boundaries. I also adore forbidden love tales and have an odd fascination with kidnapping romances. No, I don't secretly want to be kidnapped, though!
I have a passionate obsession with the written word and indulge in chocolate pastries much too often.
My debut novel For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate, #1) was released on July 26, 2014. I’m honored that For Fallon won “Best Breakout Novel 2014” in the Novel Grounds Semi Annual Literary Awards.
