Title: The Firstborn Son

Author: Kaia Misk

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

Becoming a ruthless mob boss like his father is the last thing Frankie wants, but when Sofia’s father is gunned down, Frankie must become the very thing he loathes to protect the woman he loves.

Sofia was a devoted girlfriend to Frankie, until he stood her up and she questioned his fidelity. Now that she’s alone and rich, mafia suitors slither around her. Marriage to him might be her only hope.

They try to rekindle their love amidst a mob war. But can a hasty marriage withstand what the Mafia has in store?

My Review:

This is the book that Soprano fans have been waiting decades for. Sofia is a confident woman who knows what she wants, is willing to take charge and will take chances to make it all happen. Sofia and Frankie are the couple that won't let even themselves keep them apart.

This is the book written for the audiences of today. If you stream shows nightly, then this story is for you. The drama and excitement are real and even surreal. A powerful work that is one you can't put down.

Buy this book if you loved The Godfather. Buy this book if you loved The Sopranos. Buy this book if you like mafia dramatic fiction.
