Book Review: The Oath Duet


Blood stains my hands, my soul, my heart, yet I’ll shed more to keep her safe.

A chance meeting brings Jen MacNeill into my life—the woman born to reign at my side.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
How could my Lady be anything other than a silken promise taunting me with every breath she takes?
A new Don reigns over Manhattan.
But though I won the war, peace isn’t easily brokered.
Over a decade of avenging my father’s death, I made many enemies.
To each and every one, Jen’s a target.
But I’ll paint NYC red before I let them harm her.
I just never imagined I’d be in the line of fire first…

A heart broken by grief can feel no guilt or shame with the brutality in which vengeance is delivered.

This is the first part of ‘
The Oath’ duet in The Valentini Family series.

My Review

Yes, I love a good mafia romance book. This duet is no exception. There will be blood! The push and pull dynamics between Luciu aka Luc and Jen is great. I love that even when Jen found herself in a dangerous situation, she still had a feisty nature. This just made the chemistry between these two even hotter. 

When I imagine mafia bosses, I think of men like Luc. He is assertive but at the same time very protective of the things that are his like Jen. As the story progressed, Jen stepped up and started blossoming into a strong, powerful woman that could stand by Luc's side. 

Warning: This book has a cliffhanger that will leave you on the edge of your seat. 

I’ve spent a lifetime avoiding the various factions of the mafia in NYC, yet somehow I’m in it up to my eyeballs.
I should be scared.
I should want to run.
Yet the city quivers in fear with every designer-clad footstep I take, because the Valentinis have ascended, and I’m the Don’s Lady.
It’s intoxicating.
However Luciu comes with vendettas and a craving for vengeance that could get him killed.
With my allegiance tied to the Irish, can I say yes when he wants me to take an oath to the Sicilians?
Is a happily-ever-after on the cards when the ‘after’ isn’t even promised?
This is the second part of ‘The Oath’ duet in The Valentini Family series.
THE DON must be read first.

My Review

This book picks up from the first. Which is why you have to read this duet in order by starting with The Don. 

In this book, the main focus is more on Jen. Which I loved, as it allowed her to really shine and show just how far she has come from the innocent woman she was to the boss lady that she has become. As I grew to love Luc and Jen from the first book, I was able to really sink my teeth into this book. Therefore, I absolutely loved this book. 

There is still a bloody trail that follows Luc and Jen. Yet together these two can defeat anyone. Again, there is a cliffhanger but don't worry as the next set of duets will be coming soon. Now, that I am hooked, I can't wait to read more about Hunter.
