Book Review: Mobster Series Anniversary Edition Book 1 to 3 by Amy Rachiele

Hello Everyone!

I've come back with yet another great book! I decided to do this book review for the whole series because you simply cannot read one book without the succeeding ones. It's the Mobster Series Anniversary Edition Book 1 - 3 by Amy Rachiele. This has been quite a read. It's just reaaallly good. Note: Make sure to read till the end for a treat.

This is what I have. Below is the Link and synopsis for each book.

Amazon: Mobster's Girl: Mobster Series Book 1 [FREE on Amazon]
Book 1 Synopsis:
"Mobster Romance Book (Free Mobster Book) 
Gripping my chest is the only way to hold myself together or what’s left of me will fall out. The past week has enlightened me on one thing-I don’t care. 
Megan, Mobster’s Girl 

I didn’t even hesitate. I took two strides and blasted him in the face with my fist. He was ready for it this time-unlike in church. He tried to hit me back but I ducked and smashed him again. 
Antonio, Mobster’s Girl 

You can’t help what family you’re born into or what lies they keep from you. You can’t help it if they mold and shape you just the way they wanted. Are monsters born or made? 

Antonio and Megan have a timeless issue. They were told to stay away from each other. They try, they really do. But they are drawn to each other. 

Antonio is eighteen and the up and coming mob boss of Palmetto, New Jersey. Megan is a girl uprooted from the grassy plains of Ireland at the age of five. Now she’s seventeen and faced with horrors she never thought existed. 
Get caught up in an Italian Mafia Romance Novel! "

Amazon: Awakening the Mobster: Mobster Series Book 2
Book 2 Synopsis:
"A breathtakingly beautiful man is standing right next to me-holding me, reassuring me, protecting me. Antonio is my savior. Having him with me makes the ickiness that’s stuck in my stomach tolerable. ~Megan, Awakening the Mobster 

Loving Megan and caring for Erin like the sister I never had is dangerous. These feelings cause you to think. But I was raised, Don’t think, just do!
Antonio, Awakening the Mobster 

What draws and binds people together-circumstance, experience, blood? Can you change what you’re made of or is it predestined? If you fight it, will it just come back to you ten-fold? 
Antonio and Megan are running. Running away. Megan’s father told them to. Antonio and Megan fly to South Bend, Indiana. They are hiding out at Notre Dame until it’s safe to come home. But will it ever be safe with the line of work Antonio and Megan’s father do. There is no escaping the mob. It’s part of your existence! "

Amazon: Mobster's Vendetta: Mobster Series Book 3 
Book 3 Synopsis:
"My soul was drawn to him. It isn’t about the danger or his dark beauty, it’s the connection I feel – the feeling of home I have with him even though I am miles away from it. ~Megan, Mobster’s Vendetta 

The mob underworld never changes. It hides itself deep in the cities. The rules, people, and danger are identical no matter where you go. Sometimes I wish things were different, but they're not. ~Antonio, Mobster’s Vendetta 

Antonio and Megan have had to overcome severe challenges in the short time they have been together. Things just happen that way sometimes. Circumstance has kept them apart, but their biggest challenge is yet to come. 
Power, greed, and malice can crush a person from the inside out. 
Antonio and Megan are in Chicago. Antonio needs to take care of business. 
Business that includes taking down his Uncle - for good. "

I've got to be honest and say the cover of the book isn't stupendous. I didn't like it. Then I remember the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover". It was right. I didn't really like it when I first started reading book 1 [Note: It's been a while since I last read a book like this]. Frankly, I thought it wasn't that interesting. I thought it'll be just another book lost in the thousands of mob/mafia romance books. I think a lot of times, most of the good books are lost in the same ocean. I think sometimes we need to swim in that ocean and look for ourselves. Sometimes we come across a part of that ocean and we don't particularly like, but after immersing ourselves in it for a bit of time, we'll find a place for it in our memory. This book is the same. I've grown fond of it after a few chapters.

I have to say, I found several grammatical errors. I don't really mind it though. I write myself, and a lot of times, I don't notice the errors in my words. I apologize if you have. Finding a few grammatical errors in a book doesn't make it bad. It makes it imperfect, but what is perfection really? I have yet to find a "perfect" book. I'm not sure I ever will find a book without flaws. In my opinion, perfection is achieved when you are completely satisfied with something even with its flaws. This series gave a really good fight for it.

I want to point out that what I liked in the book is that it took my imagination to the setting the characters lived in. I was imagining each situation and I was thinking about what I would do if I was in the same position. I liked the characters. Megan was a tough little lady and Antonio was this rough sweetheart. I'm used to reading about tough and hard men who has a soft spot for their lady. I can't promise you it'll be different. Like other books I've read, they also made the female protagonist strong enough to be with her man. What made me like them though is the way they were written. I thought the author was able to write the book in such a way that they're different even when they were so alike with characters from other books. They are very similar, but very different in their own way.

Usually, if I like a book, I'll continue reading it till the end and want more. In this case, I keep putting it down. It isn't because I don't like it, it's because I want to prolong the experience. I don't want it to end, but I know it will soon if I keep reading it. Every time I put it down, I'll listen to a song then start to feel restless. I want to read it again. This has been going on since the day before. I feel so annoyed because the books aren't as long as I want them to be. I wanted to learn more about Megan and Antonio. I also wanted more conflicts, because if there were more, It'll mean it won't end soon. I'm also annoyed because it ended so soon. Will we have more of Megan and Antonio soon?

Overall, I thought this was a good series to read. If I were you though, I would get all three books in one purchase. If you aren't a fan of cliffhangers, go get them all at once. I had to read the next book as soon as I finished reading the one before it. Also, I want to point out I really liked the slang words the author included in each chapter. This thrilled me a lot! and I can't wait to read more books from Amy Rachiele. If she ever does a book tour, sign me up! She already has Book 4 released, which is about two other characters from the story.

BTW, a Booktalk/Spoiler post is on its way for this series, so stay tuned.

I'll give the series 4 Stars !

Note: Amy is giving away free ebooks in her site. I got this from there, so check it out!
*hehe did you read till the end?

Hope you enjoyed reading my review!
