I have read every book that Aleatha has written and I will continue to do so as to me she is just amazing at what she does.
I was so excited to receive Respect as an ARC. I read the Infidelity Series and was intrigued to learn more about Oren Demetri, his lift, his feelings, thoughts, wishes, I wanted to know so much more about the man and that is what we got. We got Oren warts and all.
Oren, was a working class man, he wanted to work for his money. To provide for his family and to be respected by others.
He met his lovely wife Angelina Costello at University, Angelina is a strong willed woman who also happens to be the niece of a Don so by marrying her Oren knew that it was the family he married into and in doing so had to win the Respect of her family. “Respect is what defines a true man.” Marrying into the Costello family means “Blood in. Blood out.”
What I found fascinating was you got a more in-depth knowledge and insight into the Costello family, their dealings and demands on all members of the family and how Oren was treated and used as well as respected by them. “Family was comprised of those people who made you who you were, who supported you, and stood beside you when others turned away.”
From early on in this book you see that Oren is more complex than I thought in the Infidelity books, he has many layers and strives to do the best for his son (Nox) and Angelina his wife and yes sometimes that means going out of the white lines and making them grey but family always came first and providing for them was a No.1 issue for Oren.
This truly is a read that will grip you from chapter 1 and have you at times in tears (well maybe just me) there are some really heartfelt moments but there is also some grit. It is not a lovey dovey romance, it is so much more, it is a complex, gripping and a powerful story of man wanting to do the best for his family by any means he can.
I would highly recommend this story to everyone.
This story is filled with love, heartache, pain, heartbreak, and death. You will laugh, cry and in the end, you will be left in awe.
This is Oren Demetri’s story, there were small glimpses of him in the Infidelity series but here we learn what Oren went through and gave up for family and love. From seeing Angelina in a college class to marrying her and raising a family with her. But he was always building his empire and doing what The Costello family needed him to do. The Costello’s was Angelina’s family and being part of the mafia in the New York area, when the family called, Oren had to go. But at what cost does he leave his wife and son at home.
Angelina knows what her uncle and cousin are and what they do. She doesn’t want to know but she knows. She doesn’t want Oren to be a part of it but he can’t say no to the family even if it is her family that he married in to. When Lennox comes along, both Oren and Angelina want him to have a choice in his life, not to have him pushed into the family business.
Oren must pay the dues from his company to keep Lennox away but he knows it will cost him his family at home to some extent.
How far will Oren go before it becomes too much? Will Angelina accept that Oren will always go when her uncle and cousin call him? How will his absences affect Lennox as he grows older?
I knew once I started reading this one it was going to rip me to pieces. It has taken me most of the day to get my mind right to write this review. Aleatha Romig has a way of pulling you into a story and not letting you go until you have been wrung out completely. But in the best way possible, her stories are full of twist and turns that will keep you on the edge until you reach the end and think, “How did she do that?”
So if you are looking for a fantastic story with all of the feels and then some, read this one and then read the Infidelity series (not about cheating), I promise you will not be disappointed. I loved everything about this story.

I'll admit, I didn't much care for Oren in the Infidelity series, he was always the pinnacle of hate for Lennox and was portrayed to be a neglectful and absent father through Lennox's eyes. Here we see how the relationship between Oren and Lennox broke down. My heart just bled out for Oren and my feelings have completely done a 180. I completely fell in love with Oren; I could feel the strain and torture that troubled him everyday. There were so many other characters that we briefly became aware of in the Infidelity series, it was great to get to know these in greater detail too. Aleatha writes with feeling, with passion and with depth. She brings her characters to life and we truly see the story through their eyes.
Told completely from Oren's POV the book completely took over my life for a couple of days I was that absorbed in to the world of the Costello's and the Demetri's that the world could have ended and I wouldn't have known! This truly was the making of a man!
You don't have to have read the Infidelity series to read this, but I think it does compliment this book as it explains certain events in greater depth. A must read!
