Publisher's Summary

Nico

They say you don’t know what you’ve lost until it’s gone, but that wasn’t true. I knew exactly how devastating it would be to lose Sofia, and I did it anyway.

She doesn’t think I have the right to walk back into her life. Too bad. I’m not the same playground protector she grew up with. I’ve grown into a hardened, selfish man, and her tears won’t deter me. Now that I’ve had a taste of her, I can’t get enough. I want to burry myself inside her - cage her in my arms and never let her go.

Sofia slipped through my fingers once before, and I won’t let it happen again.

Sofia

Nico was the solid ground that kept my life from falling into chaos...until that ground slipped out from beneath me.

He didn’t just break my heart, he destroyed it.

That was seven years ago. Seven long, life-altering years. Now, he’s come back trying to pick up where we left off, acting as if nothing has changed. He’s in for a surprise because I’m not that same little girl he left behind. He thinks he can bully his way back into my life, but he doesn’t have any clue what he’s up against.

Once Nico was gone, this little ladybug sprouted wings and grew teeth - she cast webs and made new friends while she hid in the shadows, nursing her heartache. Angelic Sofia became exactly what she was meant to be - a Genovese. In the Genovese family, our spines are tempered steel, and secrets run through our veins like blood.

The big bad wolf can huff and puff all he wants, but he’ll never get inside these walls.

SO GOOD.. SO ENTERTAINING.. & SO WELL-NARRATED TOO

Oh boy I’m love.. love.. loving this Five Families Mafia world that Ms Ramsower has created with her sexy dangerous alpha heroes and complicated heroines.. and all I can do is echo the glowing 5 star reviews others have left for this very enjoyable and well-paced love story. There’s a good buildup as these two soulmates rekindle the embers of their love that never quite died out and Nico and Sofia’s second-chance dual POV love story was brought to life by two very talented narrators who made the character’s journey through potholes, lies, secrets, danger and revelations an absolute joy to listen to.

Worth a credit? Definitely.. its well-developed soft plot is sweet, romantic, emotional, layered, has good ‘family’ loyalties and has Mafia madness too.. and yippeeee I’m off to listen to book 3 right now.

Sofia and Nico

This book was so good. Nick broke up with Sofia when she was 15 and shattered her world. He comes back into her life seven years later when her father wants him to protect her from their enemies. There was plenty of suspense and romance. Sofia's older sister Alessia and Luca from book 1, made a few appearances. Her friend Michael turned out to be great. Uncle Sal shows up again in a negative way. The ending of this book was great. Ava Erickson and Wen Ross did an outstanding job with the narration.

Loved From Beginning To End

This story has plenty of edge of your seat suspense. The voice actors helped in getting me to love this second book of The Five Families series. Now that I've listened to the book I don't know that I could sit and read the book. I had too much fun having someone read to me.

This is one of those books that can seem based on reality. And this had me thinking of some of the shows that I watched growing up. Once I finish listening to the series, I can picture going back to the beginning and listening to them one after the other - just like a soap opera. If autumn wasn't in full swing in my area; I could see myself sitting in a beautiful garden, or on a swing, just listening to the author's words come to life.

Both Ms. Erickson and Mr. Ross are very good at their job and I'm glad that I get to experience it. They have a way of changing their voice so that you know another character is speaking. You will have no trouble hearing the emotions come through your earbuds/headphones. The voice actors made it very difficult for me to turn it off. It was tough to think about work when all I wanted to do was hear Ms. Ramsower's characters come to life in my head.

I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Perfection!!!

After reading Alyssa’s story, I couldn’t wait for Sofia’s! It had so many feels...love and heartache, happy, sad and scary moments, there was suspense and tragedy. Sofia is once tough chic...I love her. Way to go Jill👏👏👏 Now I’m ready for Maria’s story❤️❤️

Brilliant Performance by Ava Erickson and Wen Ross

4.5 Stars!!

Nico & Sofia's journey is intense, intriguing, and entertaining. This Second-Chance Mafia Romance got me hooked right from the start and couldn't let go until I was done lsitening! So expertly performed, that it felt as if I was part of this fabulous story!

Nico and Sofia are reconnecting many years after their hurtful break-up, and while Sofia wants nothing to do with the man that unexpectedly left her heartbroken, Nico wants nothing more than to keep her safe, and regain her love and trust. Their chemistry is explosive, and their connection still so strong, that what they evoked is almost palpable. They truly complement each other so perfectly, and deserve their second chance!!

The only thing that I really wish to have been differently, is for Nico's POV to have been at least equal to Sofia's.

I loved it all!

A sexy and intriguing second chance romance. It was slow burn that drove me crazy in anticipation. Shifting back and forth from Nico and Sofia's past and present together. Lies keeping them apart for seven years.

Nico is sexy and strong. A protector with a big heart. He's made mistakes and he's ready to atone for the pain he's put Sofia through. Wen Ross did an amazing job narrating Nico. A gruff and seductive voice that sets your body on fire.

Sofia had learned to cope after losing her brother and her best friend. Not an easy task but she's grown into the woman she wants to be. Ava Erickson did a phenomenal job. Her voice is sweet, sexy, and strong. She embodies Sofia perfectly. I could listen to her all day.

You'll love this audiobook. It pulled me in right from the start. I didn't want it to end! Amazing narration and amazing story!

Good story

I didn’t buy the first book because of the male narrator, but I love these two narrators and the story kept my attention. I’m on to the rest of series. So far so good.

Breathtaking Second Chance Romance!

This is an exciting, emotional, and sexy second chance romance! This story starts with Sofia witnessing a horrific event when she is too young to understand. She doesn't know how to cope and keeps to herself. Nico befriends Sofia on the school playground helping her to slowly feel safe and stronger. As they grow so does their friendship, maturing into a love that is more mature. They have big plans for their future until Nico is drawn into a dangerous world to protect his family. Sofia once again didn't understand why her heart keeps getting broken. Now years later she is stronger and not as innocent as she once was. Nico is back in her life and he will do whatever it takes to protect her while convincing her to give him another chance. But they both have secrets that could be too great to overcome. I loved how this story was told in past and present sequence, slowly revealing the events that made Nico and Sofia who they are today. This romance was suspenseful, and seductive and the thrilling story surrounding them was a nail biter! Narrators Ava Erickson, and Wen Ross did a great job bringing this story to life. They skillfully made these characters so clear to me, making me care for them quickly. Their inflections were breathtaking, and their chemistry was palpable. I loved listening to them both as they drew me in and made this story even more exciting. I can't wait to find out what happens next in this Five Families series!

Second Chance to Love!

This is the second book in The Five Families Series, a mafia romance/second chance to love. Nico and Sofia's story is fast paced, emotional, captivating, and beautiful. Nico is handsome and protective. Sofia is beautiful, smart, and strong. They are both beautiful characters. Micheal, Sofia's best friend, is a great and intriguing character. I would love to have his story. Wen Ross and Ava Erickson did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it.
