There were always whispers about my roommate at Hillcrest Academy.
The wealthiest of the wealthy sent their kids to our boarding school, and Brooke Bennett had been at the top, though I never quite knew why. She was fun and outgoing, but she kept quiet about her family. The only things she showed me were photographs of her brothers.
I became fascinated with her second-oldest brother. Kai Bennett.
He was the most of them all. Smoldering. Hypnotic. Alluring.
Kai had eyes that pulled me in and a face that haunted my dreams.
Then I met him.
He came to our school with their father, and that's when I learned what kind of family Brooke came from. They were mafia, and Brooke's oldest brother was dead. Her father said accident, but Brooke said murder.
Three months later, her father died, and Kai became the head of the Bennett Family. Brooke left Hillcrest for good, and that was the last time I saw her.
Fourteen years later, I'm staring at her face on the television. Brooke is missing.
Two days later, Kai Bennett kidnaps me.
** This is a 120k full-length standalone.
Bennett Mafia book summary coming soon..
I usually like this author’s work, but I only made it about 40% of the way through. The storyline moves at a snail’s pace and it’s very unorganized. One minute she hates Kai and is all about standing up for her mission, and the next she is turned on and could care less. I cannot stand a lead heroin who is a pushover. Not a fan of Kai either. there is no character development, he barely says anything the entire time. Also what’s this crap about not hearing or seeing him move, but she can”feel” him coming to her through a whole door! Ridiculous. I always try to finish a book before voicing my opinion, however I just could not make myself finish the book. 15
This book was AMAZING. You’re a wonderful descriptive writer. I felt every emotion. Hands down best book I’ve read so far. I can’t wait to read more of your work. 55
The words just pull you into the world, I couldn’t put it down! 55
Another great read from Tijan. I fell in love with Kai. The way he controls everything and everyone is fascinating. 55
I love tijan, and every book she writes I can never put down. This book is the reason I love her!! 55
I just seriously love Tijan’s writing. I’ve read every book she’s ever published because her writing never disappoints. This book is most definitely not a disappointment. I absolutely loved the book. I will definitely be reading it again in the future. 55
Omg!! Another great story. She never disappoints I seriously could get enough of it. I read it just two days. Would’ve been less if not for work. I soo recommend it absolutely five starts like always 55
Tijan did it again!!! Loved this book so much even more so that this wasn’t your same ol “mafia “ story it was so much more! 55
Tijan knocks it out of the park with this standalone mafia romance. As with all of her books, this author creates entertaining storylines with wonderful, unique characters. I was completely sucked in by the first page and Bennett Mafia may be one of my favorite mafia romances. Kai was pulled into being the head of the Bennett mafia as a teenager. He comes across as cold and calculating, but there is a soft interior that so few see and I enjoyed learning more about him as his layers were peeled back. Riley is a strong and likable heroine, a fighter, and strives to help others stuck in difficult situations. Both had rough childhoods and it is evident that their struggles greatly shaped who they are as adults. The two have great chemistry together and it was fun to watch how their relationship evolved from enemies to lovers. Kai’s siblings as well as Riley’s friend, Blade were great secondary characters and contributed much to the storyline. Bennett Mafia had some drama, hot sex scenes, suspense, as well as shocking twists and turns - thus keeping me entertained until the very end. I received this book for free. 55
