A Favor for a Favor by Nat Chelloni (2020)


"Forget favors given; remember those received." - John Wooden

A time for love can't be more deadly...

Julia Leonardi thought she put her past behind her. The widow of a mobster, all she wants is to steer clear of the criminal elements. Then she meets Domenico Bonacci...

Dom is handsome, charming, and intense. The world knows him as a prominent businessman, but Julia sees him as everything she fought to escape.

Once the scion of a powerful Mafia family Dom left the world of organized crime after his father's death. And he swore he would never go back.

No matter how hard she tries, Julia can't seem to ignore the powerful spark of attraction between them and her growing feelings for him. But when Dom's shady past catches up with him, the two forbidden lovers find themselves trapped in a deadly game.

Will Dom renege on his vow and lose the woman he loves, or he will manage to break free of his past for once and for all?

I liked this book but it took me longer to read it than it should have. Even though there is plenty of drama, suspense and romance in the book it didn't hold my attention all the way through. I got confused with all the names. There are only a few leading characters but there were so many names mentioned I couldn't keep track of who did what, when and why.
The attraction between Julia and Dom was obvious but I didn't get a sense of the love developing between them. It happened very quick.
I thought the poignant scenes at the beginning of the book were well written and a good indicator of the dark and dangerous world these characters inhabit. 

A Favor for a Favor is the debut novel by Nat Chelloni and is out now.
