Surviving Mateo (Morelli Family #2)

Surviving Mateo (Morelli Family, #2)

Surviving Mateo by Sam Mariano

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Finished Accidental Witness yesterday, and Surviving Mateo today. And wow- am I loving Sam Mariano!
Mateo is… awful. Maddening. Terrifying. Unstable. Unpredictable. Controlling. Surprising.
This book really kept it moving for me. I hate it when a story lags in the middle. None of that here! I can’t wait to keep reading the Morelli series! I love the characters. And the person who disappeared during this book? I gotsta find out what happened to them!
After Accidental Witness I couldn’t imagine rooting for Mateo. He was just too awful. Unforgivable. Irredeemable. What he did was not excusable regardless of his intentions. That said, somehow, he softens in Surviving Mateo and I found myself rooting for the HEA. Not just for Meg, but surprisingly, for Mateo as well. Maybe because he is a damaged loose cannon, and perhaps she can reign in some of that volatility.
Can’t write anymore- gotta go read some more of this series!

Mateo Morelli.

The mere mention of his name is enough to strike fear into the hearts of grown men. The most ruthless crime lord in Chicago isn’t a man you dare cross. But when the second most feared crime lord shows up on my doorstep the night of my husband’s wake, he doesn’t give me much of a choice. 

My late husband owed Antonio Castellanos a lot of money, but the magnanimous boss is gonna do me a solid—I get to pay my debt, and keep my daughter alive. All I have to do is one little favor.

That favor?

Seduce and kill Mateo Morelli.


**PLEASE NOTE: These are not standalones. Mateo’s story starts in Accidental Witness (and continues in Once Burned). If you don’t read Accidental Witness first, you will not have the background you need on his character and you won’t follow his story very easily. ***

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
