Boss by Tara Oaks 
Boss is book two in Chianti Kisses series and focuses a great deal on Dom’s point of view.  As we know from the end of Baby V, both families have a history with the mob and Dom and John have worked hard to separate the family business from that. With Rizzo being arrested in Baby V, it looks as though it could finally happen. However, that would just be too easy don’t you think? There is a threat against a family member and Dom does what he feels he must to keep his family safe.  I personally don’t understand why he makes future decisions concerning this, but I’m sure the author has her reasons.

I enjoyed this book very much. V is a strong Italian woman and that mirrors my family closely. We Italian females aren’t to be messed with! Dom is an uber alpha male and he would like his wife to listen to him without question, yeah right! The characters from book one appear in book two and we get to see more of their lives. A few new characters are introduced, and I have to say I’m liking Carmine! The foundation for book three is laid out in this book and it looks to be interesting. There are some shocking revelations made, which is always good for a plot. In true Tara Oaks fashion, there is plenty of steamy sex. I give this book 4 stars with 3 hands down the pants.

“I didn’t see any possible outcome that didn’t involve him walking away bruised and battered or her walking away knocked up.”
