Betrayal is difficult to overcome when the trust is gone.
Luca did everything for Fallon. But as the underboss of the Chicago Syndicate, he has an entire organization depending on him, and she is a weakness he can no longer afford.
When Fallon’s life continues to unravel, she will need Luca more than ever, but can she move beyond all the lies and deceit?
The pull of love still ties them together, but their secrets have driven them apart. Even after everything that’s happened, Fallon owns Luca’s heart, but the Chicago Syndicate owns his life.
How can he be with the woman he loves yet still remain loyal to an organization that lives by its own rules, above any law? It’s a choice he can’t afford to make, and when nothing is as it seems, the ultimate decision may mean life or death for Luca.
A romantic suspense.

Novel Grounds Semi Annual Literary Awards 2014 winner of Best Breakout Novel For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate, #1)
That evening, James and Salvatore – my Consigliere - meet Adriano and me at my penthouse where the doctor stitches us up and provides us with some pain medicine.
As we stand around my black granite-top kitchen island, I look at their weary faces.
James starts. “Any ideas who did this?”
Adriano answers as he twists his golden lighter between his fingers, “Leggia maybe? We should check with Biagio,”
“I’ll set up a meet with Biagio,” Salvatore offers while sliding onto the barstool.
James looks me in the eye. “I don’t like this. This is the first time our headquarters has been targeted. It could’ve been Leggia’s doing, but I have my doubts.”
“So do I,” I agree.
“I want you two to get some rest for a couple of days,” James orders and points to Adriano and me. “And we don’t meet in public for a couple of weeks. Capito?” Understand?
We nod and part. Everyone back to their own life.
James will be welcomed by his wife, Alessa. Salvatore’s Julia waits for him. Adriano will be happy with a whore. And I’m alone. Without her.
As much as I want to, I can’t refrain from reaching out, so I text and call her a few times during the weekend, but not one word from Fallon.
Soraya outdid herself with Luca's story! Right from the beginning, our two tortured characters are trying to piece themselves back together after their break up. Fallon is a mess, and Luca does everything he can to get her out of his mind, he just can't seem to get her out of his heart though.
There were moments, and lots of them, that I just wanted to reach through my Kindle and smack both Luca and Fallon. Though Fallon more times than Luca, I won't even begin to say what I wanted to do with him... I became very vested in these two characters and Soraya does an amazing job at painting the perfect picture of just what these two are going through.
In a world where trust is paramount, neither Luca nor Fallon is sure they can trust one another. Trust is a huge theme throughout the entire story. The only one that Luca is sure of, is his best friend, Adriano. Fallon goes through hell in this book.She is much stronger than I thought she was. Your questions from the first book will be answered and be ready for a few surprises. Remember, in the world of the Syndicate, you have to be careful who you trust.
For Luca is the perfect conclusion to Fallon and Luca's story, and honestly, I liked it better than the first book. We get to know them so much better and understand their motives. The epilogue is perfect. It sums up their journey beautifully and for me, it makes everything come full circle.
And although this is the end of Fallon and Luca, we will get more Adriano...yay!
A must 5 star read and don't forget to start with For Fallon. Soraya writes a brilliant mafia story, I can't wait to see what she does outside the genre.
About Author Soraya Naomi
I was born in South America in 1984 and raised in Europe where I presently reside with my fiancé.
I read many genres but favor intense, dark, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely, without remorse or boundaries. I also adore forbidden love tales and have an odd fascination with kidnapping romances. No, I don't secretly want to be kidnapped, though!
I have a passionate obsession with the written word and indulge in chocolate pastries much too often.
My debut novel For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate, #1) was released on July 26, 2014. I’m honored that For Fallon won “Best Breakout Novel 2014” in the Novel Grounds Semi Annual Literary Awards.
