Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Gian (Trassato Crime Family #1) by Lisa Cardiff
I only ever had one dream—my name in bright lights for the world to see. And I had a plan to make it all happen.
Move to New York. Find an agent. Work hard. Then with a little luck mixed in with some natural talent, I’d be a Broadway star.
One devastating injury and a broken engagement later, I have nothing to show for my life except an empty bank account and a jaded heart. Desperate to salvage my dreams, I agree to interview for a job with my best friend’s brother, Gian Trassato.
Gian is charming. He’s magnetic. He’s connected to the Trassato Crime Family, and everything I should stay away from, but I don’t have a choice. I need the job.
Just when I thought I was about to get my life and career back on track, I make one thoughtless mistake. I go back to the club to pick up my purse and witness something Gian’s enemies would kill to keep secret.
Now I’m being sucked deeper and deeper into a terrifying world I don’t understand…
Friends and enemies are interchangeable. Honor and family are everything. And the scariest part of all…I might actually be getting lost in Gian.
Gian (Trassato Crime Family #1)
Okay so – this is the beginning to a series of course but Im not sure if this is the entire book on Gian or a small snippet of something more to come. Im a little confused by the post that there is more to this story. Of course there is more but I mean is this not the end of Gian’s story or ….. but I can tell you book two in the Trassato Family series is Carmela’s book. I'm thinking we have only tipped only a small portion of what is about to go down. I know I confused you with this snippet but I'm not sure if the books are going to be a continuation of the mayhem or if we are going to get standalones.
Evie is tossing items out of her window on to the front lawn drinking expensive bottles of alcohol when we meet her. LOVE IT! GO GIRL --- we find out that her fiancé has been banging his “student” on the side and of course wants forgiveness – don’t they all. BLAH BLAH BLAH! LOL! --- Evie knew in her heart he was trouble but after her dreams were shattered she had no other choice but to throw herself towards her potential wedding as Kevin became her lifeline in her pity party. Broke, with no job lined up and on her own – her best friend comes to her rescue. Setting up an interview with her brother Gian Trassato will get her back in the game. Little does Evie know the man who just escorted her to his private office is that man.
Holy cats – this was hilarious because you as the reader know who the man is and it only gets worse from there –
What a great great read. All hell breaks loose after Evie goes back to retrieve her purse. Seeing things she should not see – Evie has to become the best actress she has ever been – but the question is why is Gian willing to protect her.
Evie’s life becomes a complete wreck and I mean all out no holds barred shit storm and it's awesome! Carmela’s story is going to be a good one; especially if we get caught back up with Gian and Evie and see where they are. LOVE LOVE this series --- There is so much more to come with the Trassato Crime Family --- it's going to be good.
Thank you for the ARC Lisa! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets!
