Lucca (Made Men #4) By Sarah Brianne

Lucca was made the underboss, being what nightmares are made of.
Chloe was scarred by her past, learning too young that nightmares are real.
He has waited long enough to claim her soul, but he must take it from the devil first.
Her soul might have been better off claimed by the devil.
The only way to save her from her past is to delve into his.
The world as she knows it will come crashing down.

I'm the fu**ing boogieman.
I'm just a fu**ing freak.

Okay, as you know, I was NOT TEAMLUCCA, I was totally TEAMAMO. 

But I didn't even get halfway through the book before I was swayed by Lucca and his love for Chloe. 
I really loved him. He was incredibly charming in his own dangerous way and I couldn't put it down. 

Chloe reacted to Lucca in a way she really needed too. He's perfect for her. Yeah, he went about getting her the wrong way but it was the ONLY way. I couldn't see that at first but then as the story progressed... okay, as the story began, I understood. 

We get to know Lucca on another level. He's not such a mystery in this book and we get to see the real him, the man behind the cold mask. And I have to say, I'm now Team Lucca. I just hope Amo gets his own story soon. I hate knowing he's lost Chloe, but he didn't love her the way Lucca did.

Look at me... LOL 
Read my CHLOE review and you'll see how against Lucca I was LOL I'm not singing a new tune and I couldn't care less aha He really did knock me sideways. Sarah Brianne has really blew us away with this one. She's changed so many minds and for a moment, I didnt think mine could be swayed LOL 

The book is brilliant, the plot much better and although I would have liked to have skipped the rehashing past stuff, I still enjoyed the story. 
The ending was fantastic.

Chloe (Made Men Book 3) By Sarah Brianne

Chloe's scarred face makes her the school's freak.

Her reflection is a constant reminder of how she got them.
The man who scarred her haunts not only her dreams, but also her reality.
Some nightmares don't go away in the daylight.

Two men stand up to save her from the nightmares.
Both are men of the mafia, waiting behind a door she doesn't want to open.
Amo the soldier and Lucca the underboss.
The Beast and the Boogieman.

Who will she choose?

First off, I've wanted to read this book for so long.... 

Chloe has always been that character you've wondered about, worried about and wanted desperately to have a happily ever after. *Coughs* WITH AMO

It basically runs through everything we've already read, but it's all from Chloe's POV and Amo's. I've seen some bad reviews about this, but can you really say, when you read Nero that you didn't wonder what happened when Amo walked Chloe to class???? Because I did. I wondered so bad. Now I know and know more.... but still, HAVE QUESTIONS. 

When I read the blurb, it said "This is a standalone novel" Then a few lines down had CLIFFHANGER written. Can you end a book with a cliffhanger and it be a standalone series??? Nope, this book is a series Sarah. Some emailed me and actually felt lost reading it. Thinking they'd read the other books in the series I asked her what she was lost on. Turned out, she thought it was a standalone. Thankfully the blurb on Amazon has been added, cliffhanger.... must read others to get full effect. 

So, we know this book is about who Chloe will end up with. My guess????


Do I want it to be Lucca? 

HELL NO!!!!!!! 

Why do I think it's going to be Lucca? 
Well..... The book could go anyway, thanks to the way Sarah had brilliantly ended it. NO SPOILERS HERE!! 
But, did any of you notice most of the book is about AMO and CHLOE's relationship, not a love triangle between Chloe, Amo and Lucca. We only get to see him a few times for brief moments, so my guess is, book 2 to Chloe will be all about Lucca, whether that be that she chooses him, or because she doesn't choose him, I don't know. 

For me, she already chose in this book, when she ran to the person she felt safest with, felt more for, but then Sarah put this big twist onto it and now I'm not so sure. I'd like to think Chloe ends up with Amo, for me Lucca is too much of a trigger from her past. Plus, why would she choose him? She doesn't even know him. She's spent countless hours with Amo and has became incredibly close to him. There is no spark between Lucca and her, for me anyway. 

That's my theory on the triangle. I am excited to read the next in the series.

Vincent (Made men #2) By Sarah Brianne

Vincent knows the glamorous side of the Mafia, being born a soldier. 

Lake lives on the opposite side of the tracks, born the daughter of a soldier. 

The light and dark side of him are at constant war, but he is letting his darkness reign. 

She is trying to find peace, and she will soon be far enough away to find it. 

Discovering that his boss owns her, showed him how little he knew her. 

Knowing all about him only makes her want to hate him.

I'm a fu**ing made man. 

I'm just fu**ing trailer trash.

I have literally been waiting for this book for far too long. 

I absolutely loved Nero and it comes in second to Rachel Van Dyken's Elite series. Nothing could ever beat that for me, but this book is coming in close. 

Lake is from the poorer side of the mafia, her father only been a foot soldier. Her mother on the other hand is a spiteful, greedy, gold digger who is married to a wealthy man. He bullies Lake, I mean really bullies her and treats her like she's nothing. It honestly made me feel sick reading it. The way he demands her to clean, the way her mother buys her things knowing that Ashley just takes them off of her. They even make the poor girl sleep on a mattress in the cold attic when they have spare bedrooms. It honestly made me sick. Even on her graduation her mother didn't show, because of her husband being sick with a cold. He wasn't, he just wanted another way to punish Lake. 
What made it worse no one saw what was going on around her. 

When her father gets into trouble, Lake doesn't do what she's told. He's the only person she loves more than anything that she feels safe with. So she ends up going head to head with the mob boss, and giving her college fund over to him and offering to work for him. 
Her life is a complete mess, and I felt so deeply sorry for her. 
Now, in come Vincent, her best friends brother who she shared her first kiss with. Since then she has harbored a crush on him and wanted him madly, but he kept pushing her away. 

Slowly, and I mean slowly, does Vincent help Lake sort through her problems, only for Vincent it's been hard to keep her safe when the boss wants her gone. After all, she doesn't do what she's told. Not ever!!! 

I have to say I burst out laughing when Lake leaves to her grandmas and Jamie Begley's The Last Rider's characters were apart of the book. Hearing what Vincent was saying made me laugh because I couldn't picture him going up against any of them. It honestly had me in stitches. I wouldn't mind, but Vincent is known to break bones and kill people with his bare hands. I guess to me Jamie Begley's last Rider boys just do it better ;) 

The book was well played out and I cannot wait for the next in the series. I'm still debating if I'm 

                           #TEAMAMO     OR     #TEAMLUCCA

Nero (Made men) #1 By Sarah Brianne

Nero is the king of Legacy Prep, living a life of power.

Elle is the school's punching bag, living a life of fear.

The only good girls Nero knows jump in his bed when he tells them to.

The closest Elle has come to a bad boy like him is in the cafeteria line.

The mob boss gave him orders to find out what she knows.

Her mouth is sealed.

I just want to be a fu**ing made man.

I'm just a fu**ing waitress.

I'm not usually a big fan of Mafia novel, though this one soon changed my mind. Nero is just every girls dream at school. The one you want to stare at across the lunch room. 
My stomach turned in this novel, with the plot about bullying, and how the two were scared to go each day. 
The friendship between the two girls in this was heart warming and in a way I liked they had each other. 

What made the book was when Nero protected them. He got them around school without being harmed, or someone saying something. I loved how he stepped in and got his boys to as well. 

The story plot had me unsure, but I promise giving this book a shot is worth it. I loved it, and I can't wait to read the next one this author has on the Marked men. 
I needed to read more once it was finished.
