Carmine Montesi is a killer disguised as a refined lawyer.
He’s a loyal member of the notorious mafia – the Chicago Syndicate – and the boss just happens to be his brother.
He has wealth, influence, and sinful looks and is rejected by no woman.
Until the moment feisty Eva ruins his New Year’s Eve, when one heated encounter starts an illicit underworld game, placing them on opposite sides.
Eva Conley is an escort.
She’s working to make the money she desperately needs to pay an outstanding debt. That is, until he gets her fired.
He’s an ass.
She’s the enemy.
They hate each other from the first time they meet.
Carmine’s only supposed to be her assignment.
And Eva’s the one woman he isn’t allowed to fall for.
Because neither of them can sleep with the enemy and make it out alive…
The Lawyer and the Tramp is book 7 in the Chicago Syndicate series, although it can be read as a standalone and it is told from a dual POV
I love Soraya Naomi and her books (pretty sure I say this about all of my favorite authors 😂). So, when I first heard about The Lawyer and The Tramp I was so excited to know Carmine‘s story.
Carmine‘s story is different from the other members (Adriano, Luca, Logan and Henry) but it’s enjoyable! (although Luca’s story will forever be my favorite lol). He’s the syndicate’s consigliere/lawyer, a playboy and he’s somewhat a jerk, let’s face it!
Eva hasn’t had an easy life for sure, this has made her defensive and protective of those she cares about. She was working in club 7 before getting fired. Later on, she happened to be at the wrong time in the wrong place with wrong people and got caught up in an unplanned mess.
Both, her and Carmine, were forced to work together secretly if I may add. One thing leads to another and before we know it, they’re aching for each other’s presence
the ending is so cute, for the life of me I couldn’t wipe my smile off my face!!
I love the Chicago Syndicate. If you are a fan of mafia romance then this is one that you might want to check out
Have a great read!
