Sarez Loved It: The Don, Sebastiano by Elle Raven and Aimie Jennison - Blog tour* Series: Stud Mafia Series Book 1
Format: ARC
Release Date: November 2nd 2014
Publisher: Author
Genre: Erotic Romance
Power. Greed. Revenge. Submission. 

Sierra Winters never planned on falling for the most powerful man in Sydney. 

One minute, she's an everyday twenty-eight year old working class office girl the next, she is being blackmailed by Sebastiano Morassi, Sydney's influential crime family boss, to settle her brother's debts. 

Sierra knows she should never have gone to him to "save" her brother but she is captivated by him. His monstrous size, his malicious evil glare and more frightening is the scar that marks his left cheek. Never has she never met or seen anyone like him. The more time she spends with this frightening yet captivating man, the harder it becomes to want to escape. 

Sebastiano Morassi is pure danger. So why does she crave him? He can make her tremble with fear and make her hairs stand on end but he also has a sweetness to him that tugs at her heart. Sierra soon finds herself merged into his world full of murder, revenge, and deceit.

Meet Sebastiano, a terrifying mob boss based in Sydney Australia and Sierra, a woman who makes a rash decision to help out her brother, who has never been anywhere close to the underbelly of Sydney, a woman who quickly finds herself becoming a Mafia Princess. This book gave you more than just a love story and some romance. This had a significant dark side that pulled you in and under. Sebastiano is, as the series suggest, a stud. He is a super sexy Italian and he is The Don, and nobody but nobody messes with the Don. This book was gripping and just a little twisted but in a good way. I could have handled it to go much darker, but for many this is probably dark enough. Elle and Aimie have handled this book brilliantly and I love the little bit of Italian scattered among the pages. Very Sexy! So for those who want a tiny bit dark, a little bit of intrigue and the sexy pull of a mob boss then this book belongs on your shelf. I don't think anyone could be disappointed in this.


Walking back into the church, I found Sebastiano on the steps in front of the altar. He looked agitated and ruthless as I observed him, toying with his rosary beads. His shirt looked like it had been haphazardly ripped open. He didn’t resemble the man I knew; a man who could be harmless, soft and so sweet at times. But deep down, I know he wasn’t. 

His eyes cut into mine as I approached him. And I could see it: the darkness that lay beneath. It only took one look from Sebastiano to make me tremble. Still, those looks of warning didn’t stop the traitorous feelings inside me. Maybe I shouldn’t have gone to him. I should have stayed away from him, but I didn’t want to. The pull was too strong, too urgent. 

I reminded myself that inside this man’s body, his head, lurked a monster I had yet to be introduced to.
