When you grow up in the most feared mafia family, it's easy to identify the kind of men that are bad news.
They're the ones with experience.
The ones with secrets.
The ones that exude sex just by saying your name.
From the minute I laid eyes on Lorenzo, I knew he wasn't just bad news.
He was the headline.
My opinion didn't change on our second meeting.
Or our third.
But my head and my heart are at war.
He’s too mysterious, too gorgeous, too wild, and now, he wants me.
I should run far away.
So why am I racing toward him?
I’m totally going to get burned.
I know it.
A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed.
He'll make ashes of me.

What are the odds of you loving this book? Pretty fucking high.

I don't typically like mafia/gang/mc books much and it's been forever since I've read one. But since this is Claire Contreras we're talking here and I love her words, I decided to give it a try and let me tell you, I don't regret it at all. I had a feeling she'd make me like it and I wasn't wrong. I mean, it helps that it wasn't a book filled with killings and shitty confrontations like many of the books I used to read of this trope were. 

Because You're Mine was the perfect blend of the mafia world with a sexy powerful romance. The characters were all so likable even the ones who were supposed to be the bad guys. 

Our heroine, Catalina was such a good soul, she was a great friend and sister. I felt so bad for her when things started to combust and secrets started coming out of the closet, she had already been through so much and now facing the truth about her past and the ghost that was threatening to ruin the little good she had in her life, it was cruel. 
Our hero, Lorenzo, oh boy even just his name is sexy. He was the powerful, take no shit alpha male and he was glorious. I loved him, even when he turned red with rage. Just like Catalina I was crazy for him. 
These two shared such undeniable chemistry right from the very first time their gazes met, and it only sizzled from there. Together they were pure fire. Loren was such an alpha in the bedroom too and it was hot af. Every sex scene got hotter and hotter and I was honestly living for it. These two made my blood sizzle. 

Because You're Mine was so much more than a book about mafia and a sexy alpha, it was about learning to live with your past decisions, forgiving others for their bad ones, learning that it's okay to want different things and things that you swore you'd never want again. It's a story about family, forgiveness, grief and love. It's a book that is not necessarily heavy but still heartfelt and touches on important topics. I honestly wasn't expecting to like it this much but I found myself loving it and I honestly cannot wait to read more of this series and see where Contreras takes it next. Definitely recommend!
