RIPTIDE Giveaway

FROM GOODREADS: Stefano Marino is a made man, a happily married west coast mafia boss who travels east to await the death of a family patriarch. All the old hands have gathered—of course sharks will circle when there’s blood in the water—but it’s a new hand that draws Stefano’s eye.

Silvio “the Barracuda” Spadaro is protetto and heir to retired consigliereGianbattista Falchi, and a made man in his own right. Among his underworld family, being gay is a capital crime, but the hypersexual—and pansexual—young killer has never much cared for rules. The only orders he follows are Battista’s, whether on the killing field or on his knees, eagerly submissive at Battista’s feet.

But Silvio has needs Battista can’t fill, and he’s cast his black-eyed gaze on Stefano. A fake break-in, an even faker attack, and Silvio is exactly where he wants to be: strung up at Stefano’s mercy, driving the older Mafioso toward urges he’s spent his whole life repressing. Stefano resists, but when the Russian mob invades his territory and forces him to seek aid, Gianbattista’s price brings Stefano face to face once more with Silvio—and his darkest desires.

  1. My favourite Riptide book is Once a Marine by Cat Grant.


  2. It's hard for me to just pick one, but I think it would have to be Dark Soul Vol. 5. I liked them all but this was a good ending for the series.

    Thanks for the giveaway!


  3. I have yet to read something from Riptide that I didn't like or love. Toss up between the Dark Soul series and Blacker than Black.

  4. I liked A Chip on His Shoulder.
