This story is packed with suspense, angst, drama, and love. This is well written and flows seamlessly, and I was intrigued and hooked from the very beginning. Hats off to the author! I cannot wait to read the 2nd book in this awesome series, and I will be 1-clicking the other book ASAP.

Although it can be read as a stand alone- interconnected to the previous books- you get more by reading the other 2 and the history of the family.
Lisa pulls you in from the beginning and holds you in suspense through the entire story.
The synopsis of the book is the perfect description of this story. Love Triangle/ Hate Triangle..
It will keep your mind intrigued as you try and figure out which direction Emilia's path is going.
She loves Sal one of her fathers soldiers however she is promised to Marcello, head of another crime family.
You will love Sal one minute and question his motives the next..
The small glimpses of interaction between Emilia and Marcello had my mind wandering with curiosity as to this mysterious man.
As of now, I know which direction I'd like to see Emilia go in.. That I will keep to myself!
Anxiously awaiting Part 2
Emilia: Part One takes place before the events of Gian and Kon, and it can be read as a standalone. This installment in the Trassato Crime Family has just as many players, just as much subterfuge, and just as much toe-curling action. Prepare for a delightful book!
Emilia’s one goal is to make a clean break from her crime family. It’s a little hard to do when her father is the mob boss in New York. Equally hard? When she falls for one of her father’s henchman. But time is running out with her arranged marriage looming on the horizon which brings its own complications.
Emilia is a character who shows a lot of determination. She knows her ultimate goal, and even though it’s a lofty one and seems impossible, she confronts the situation with a lot of thought and courage. It’s all tangled up when Sal comes into the picture. She hasn’t been able to interact with many guys, but here’s one her own age, and she’s unbelievably tempted by him. Sal’s character has enough mafia edge while also being incredibly sweet. But with all the subterfuge and goals and hidden agendas in the mafia world, who do you trust? What is Emilia’s next move?
The arranged marriage with Marcello, with his own mega-powered charisma, only sinks Emilia all the more. I was constantly flip-flopping as all these events collide wondering what was going to happen. I didn’t know, and oh my gosh, was I invested in Emilia’s story!
As with Lisa Cardiff’s other books in this series, she just has a seamless writing style that draws you deeper and deeper into her delightfully dark mafia world. The reader gets to be the sleuth as agendas are uncovered, and I thoroughly enjoy being surprised every time. Seeing as this is part one, Emilia does end on a cliffhanger. I’m hooked, and here until the end.
4 Mafia Conflict Stars!
Emilia really pulled out all the stops. Gian and Kon were all about action and suspense but Emilia had everything- suspense, emotions and gut wrenching moments that touched my heart. It was more than a mafia romance but more about a woman's desire and loyalty for the Italian mafia. Emilia was about one's journey for freedom. It was a beautiful yet poignant and sad story that really moved me. There was something that was just extra special and it pulled me in. Actually I was drowning in the story because I quickly devoured it. Sexy. Addictive. Suspenseful. Emilia was a bag of delicious desserts that I wanted to take a bite off.
Emilia was a book about Emilia, a young woman fight for freedom in a world of danger. Written in her POV, Emilia had undeniable strength in her that I absolutely loved about her, Her fight to get away from the life of the mafia really showed her tenacity. I found myself relating to her. For an 18 year old girl. there was some maturity in her. I cannot wait to know how her story progresses in Part 2.
What can I say is you need to read Emilia. This book has a different edge that you will be able to enjoy like I did.
Emilia was a character that you felt sorry for,as her life was not her own.The only outlet she had was her piano lessons and the rest of the time under lock and key.Her father a monster with countless enemies she always needs protection.You definitely felt her loneliness and sadness about her.She lost her mother and her father is a controlling monster.Emilia's only flicker of happiness is her friendship with one of her fathers men Sal.As Emilia's feelings grow deeper for Sal that little bit of happiness is about to be destroyed by a brokered marriage.Another way for her father to gain more wealth and power not the happiness of his daughter.
I really liked Sal in the beginning of the story.I loved how he was willing to risk his life to be with the one he loves. Omg what a disappointment this guy turned out to be.Then you have the mysterious Marcello who is lethal and dangerous and use to getting what he wants.I loved the letter writing between Emilia and himself as
he seemed to be courting what was already his.Another disappointment for me in another long line of deceit and betrayals.
I enjoyed the characters as they were easy to connect with.There were many surprises in the story that you never saw coming.I liked that everything you expected to happen was just the opposite.The story flowed easily and kept your interest as the characters were was like-able and some love-able.You had to love Emilia as she had an innocence about her .I loved that about her as she grew up in a world of violence and greed.
A cute romance story about love,romance,deceit,betrayals among one of the most power crime families.Looking forward to what happens next in Emilia's newest adventure.
A recommended read to all.
4 stars Arc copy for honest review
Emilia’s story I devoured, I had knots of fear and hurt in my throat, there were times I put the book down took a breath and dived back in. Emilia has so many people controlling her life, making decisions and at Chapter 21 I too felt so desolate with her.
The author wove the love triangle/hate triangle together perfectly, I was torn as to who was the good guy and bad guy, I changed corners like Emilia did and I too believed the lies and secrets and felt betrayed towards the end of this story. This also answered questions and explained to me more in-depth the relationship between Emilia and her father as I had so many questions after completing Kon (Book #2).
When all is revealed at the end I was shattered and was willing Emilia to make her hardest decision of her life.
Now onto the ending, personally some readers will think it is a cliffhanger and yes in a way it is but you do get some answers but I still have so many questions and my god will Emilia: Part 2 have some explosive revelations? If Emilia: book 2 was available I would have one clicked and downloaded that bad boy and continued my trip with Emilia to the point where she gets her justice.
I am actually going to go back and read Kon again as Emilia returns to the family fold and I want to go back and see if I missed anything.
I cannot wait to see what twists, turns and secrets the author is going to reveal in the next instalment of the Trassato Crime Family.
