They are the lost boys.
Sons of mafia mistresses expected to keep their fathers’ sins in the shadows. The lucky ones are forgotten.
Unfortunately for Valentino “Tino” Moretti, his brother Nova was too smart to be forgotten, and too valuable to risk when he resists a life of crime. So they punished Tino instead. Forced into the cruel world of the Sicilian Mafia at twelve, Tino was broken before he was old enough to know the man he was supposed to be. Now he’s what the mafia made him.
A trained killer forbidden to love, but he did anyway. He’s loved Brianna all along.
Raw and beautiful, their romance was all consuming and far too dangerous. They were ripped apart a long time ago. It’s not until the borgata puts out a hit on her that Brianna falls back into Tino’s arms, churning up their dark past and unraveling all the Moretti brothers’ closely guarded secrets.
This isn’t the end of the story. It’s only the beginning, and it is brutal.
There’s a reason enforcers are considered too deadly to love.
The Enforcer was yet another outstanding entry in Kele Moon’s Untamed Hearts series. The best part is that this amazing story is just the beginning of Tino and Brianna’s tumultuous journey. I spent most of the story being devestated by the ugliness that happened to Tino. The raw emotion of this book made it impossible to put down and had me already craving the next book.
This book took the readers back to a heartwrenching beginning for Nova and Tino Moretti. The perfectly layered story made it easy to understand the hardened but damaged Moretti brothers that we’ve come to know throughout this series. It’s hard for me to decribe how much this book has touched me but I can say that I cried my way through a box of tissues at one point. It broke my heart at some of the horrible things that happened to Tino. The author had hinted at them. I had my suspicions and still this book took me by surprise. Tino’s journey was clearly too complicated for only one book. So Tino gets two books as the author weaves a gritty and complex odyssey for him. The Enforcer is a spellbinding story of tragedy, betrayal, hardships, loyalty and love.
As usual, Kele Moon did a fabulous job on this book. It is an amazingly beautiful and emotional journey that will haunt this reader for quite a while. At least until the second part of Tino and Brianna’s story is released and I can truly enjoy their happy ever after ending.
