Publisher's Summary

A new dark Mafia friends-to-lovers romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author, Siobhan Davis.

Serena has felt trapped her entire life, living a lie because it was demanded of her.

Years of torture at the hands of her sadistic husband have left her battered and bruised, but not defeated. She needs to stay strong for her children, and she’s determined to reset her future.

The future she has all thanks to Alessandro.

He saved her that fateful night when her husband died, and he continues to save her as she struggles to piece her life back together.

Yet the closer they get, the more it terrifies her because no man has ever made her feel like this.

It can’t work.

She’s too broken.

He’s too young.

And she’ll never trust a made man again.

Women never get under Alesso’s skin—until Serena. They share an intense connection that can’t be ignored, no matter how hard she tries to push him away.

He knows she’s scared. He is too, but she’s worth the risk. Alesso vows to be patient, until danger resurfaces and now all bets are off. Serena needs to understand how much she means to him and he will do everything to protect her.

The situation grows more tense as the DeLucas plot against Bennett Mazzone and the surviving Mafia heirs. But Alesso will lay down his life before he lets Serena get hurt again.

Now his walls are lowered, the gloves are off, and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

Even if it means letting her go.

Note: This is a full-length novel with no cliff-hanger and an HEA, set in the Mazzone Mafia world. This is the third and final book in this series. For listeners who enjoy friends-to-lovers, second chance, reverse age-gap, dark Mafia romance. May contain triggers--please listen to the note at the start of the book.

Chance to Love, To Heal, To Become Strong

This is the 3rd book in the series, but the first book for me. I am anxious now to listen to the first two books! You are able to enjoy and follow this book even if you haven’t read/listened to the previous books.
A woman, Serena, places in a mafia marriage to a man as old as her father and extremely abusive. Inexperienced and with no one to turn to, she has two children she loves and sees no end to her torment. However, one night a kiss with a ‘younger made man’ and the death of her husband provides a chance at a better future...
The man she had kissed knows she is the woman for him, that she and her children are the family he has always wanted.
I adored the H and the h in this book. Things weren’t always smooth, but each one had obstacles and the strength of character and ability to love that pulled them through.
Strongly encourage if you like mafia thrones ..this is a series to download!
The narrators were perfect and the dual narration very well done.
I received a copy for an honest review.

Perfect end to the series

This book was the perfect end to the series. It is a well written, action packed, slow burn, low angst, danger and drama filled story. While technically a standalone, I highly recommend reading the first 2 books for a better understanding of the characters & the world they live in.

Fantastic Story & Narration🎧 Alesso💘Serena!

Siobhan Davis pens another amazing novel set in her Mazzone Mafia world, the third and final book of the series. I have been loving this series, the mafia world she created and world building is phenomenal. The characters are easy to relate to and connect with, they are easy to care about too. This book is Serena and Alessandro’s story, Serena’s father forced her into an arranged marriage with one of his mafia cronies, Alfredo, an evil man twice her age who made her life a living nightmare. Both her father and her husband are gone, and she moved with her sister, Sierra and her husband Bennett to Greenwich, CT. Bennett is President of “The Commission” overseeing the Mafia Crime families, and it is not all settled in the crime world. Alesso has always had a thing die Serena and the feelings are mutual but she is not ready for any type of relationship or even intimacy, her ex brutalized her and she suffers from PTSD. But Alesso is a patient man, a loving man, and he gives her the space she needs to heal and even grow into her own person again. He was not only great with Serena, but with her children as well. Alesso has proven himself to become one of Bennett’s most trusted employees, and Bennett has plans for him. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, a touch of mystery, thrilling suspense, twists and turns, heartfelt emotions and a wonderful slow burn romance. Siobhan Davis, thank you for another amazing story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, Siobhan Davis could not have chosen a better cast to bring her characters and story to life. Sarah Puckett and Tyler Darby are superbly talented narrators and versatile voice artist. They have a complete understanding of the characters there are portraying, give each a voice that fits the character’s persona perfectly, sounding believable and just as I pictured the characters to sound. Puckett nailed it as Serena, grasping her strength and her tormented side, Darby played Alesso perfectly too. Both were great at performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they captured all their character’s emotions and projected them into their performance and had you feeling every single one. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to and their narration enhances an already brilliant story to another level. Thank you for another fabulous listen.

Predictable. Cliche. Annoying.

With the other 2 books in this series, I don't remember having to ignore so many inconsistencies and so many red flags (for me, it's a 3-5 strike system, depending on my mood).

Whiny bratty FMC? Flag. Insta-lust: Flag 2. Unrealistic and ridiculous dialogue that humans in real life would never utter? Flag 3. Sappy cliche back story (Flag 4) with 1 dimensional supporting characters? 5 strikes I'm out. This author is dramatic and I'll accept a certain level of unrealistic, if it is done stylistically- but this is NOT that. Boo.

Horrible

The first book off this series was ok. The Spence book was the best one out of any of I’m. This one I couldn’t finish. It was so bad LOL. The sec scenes, I understand she had previous trauma but he asks questions the entire time I felt like it was a gynecological visit or something. So bad

Captivating!

This is the third book in the Mazzone Mafia series, a Dark Mafia Romance. Serena and Alessandro's slow burn and forbidden romance is emotional and captivating. Serena is such a fantastic character. She is a great mom, strong, and caring. Alessandro/Alesso is very handsome, protective and supportive. Serena is older than Alesso. They are perfect together. The world building is complex and enthralling. The storyline is filled with drama, danger, mystery, action, and twists and turns. There is a lot going on in this story! The supporting characters are great. I loved to see the characters from the first books. Sarah Puckett and Tyler Darby did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it. #TheFlock

4.25 Stars!

As soon as i found out about this audiobook i couldn't wait to listen to it! Having first picked up this story when it released i couldn't wait to experience it again in this new way. I started listening to it as soon as i could and got right back into the Mazzone Mafia world so quickly! I really enjoyed this audiobook so much!

I've listened to Sarah Puckett's narration many times before, but this was my first time listening to Tyler Darby's narration! These two were so great in this listen! The way these two captured the emotions of these characters in such awesome ways had me falling for the story even more! I thoroughly enjoyed what these two brought to the story as Serena and Alessandro!

Serena and Alessandro's journey once again hooked me and gave me all the feels! Getting to experience their story again in this new way made me happy!

I was so glad that i got to dig deeper with these two characters. Their connection got to me and had me so into their story. Their chemistry was undeniable and i couldn't get enough! Their story definitely kept me on my toes! I loved how i felt so much from beginning to end!

I was so glad to be back in the Mazzone Mafia world!

With Scared To Love, Ms.Davis has created such a great journey that will get into your heart and make you feel so much! From the story to Sarah Puckett's and Tyler Darby's narration, you get one listen you absolutely will not want to turn away from! I can't wait for more from Ms.Davis! I am so looking forward to listening to more of Sarah's and Tyler's narration in the near future!

Mafia Perfection

Serena's story has always intrigued me, through the first 2 books I was so sad for her, things seemed so morose for her. It seemed she was doomed to a life of pain. Alas her book is here and things are much more than they seem.

Alessandro and Serena are instantly attracted to each other, but life doesn't work out for them and things aren't as simple as feelings.

They both have such strong feelings for each other but there are quite a few obstacles between them and an HEA..

The drama with this mafia is so good, the suspense is spot on and the intensity of the characters and their feelings is everything. I love getting to see the other couples from the previous books and seeing their lives and love grow. I am really curious to see if there will be a spin off series with the way things ended it leads me to question about the kids' lives and their stories.

Sarah Puckett and Tyler Darby really brought the emotions with this one. I loved the fact that Tyler had so many different voices for different men, it was truly amazing because it made it so much more real. I loved it.

Brilliant series

This is Serena and Alesso's slow-burn story, of a bodyguard and a mafia widow. A triggering story for some so proceeds with a warning. Their story started way back, but after the recent events, they started to get closer and admit their feelings. It's not a conventional start to a romance story, so many things happening that will have you devouring the book. The world-building is fantastic, I really like dark romance and this one was perfect for me. Definitely worth reading if you like dark mafia slow burns. The narration by Sarah Puckett and Tyler Darby was on point, I really love how these two work and the way they did their characters.

Great series

This was a great series to listen too. Serena went from being meek and scared to be a force by the end of this book she was a victim no more which I loved. Alesso was true and loyal to Serena from the beginning and his lover for her kids was swoon worthy. The epilogues looks like it’s setting up for the future which I would,love to see especially the twins and Serena’s daughter. Loved the narration and you can never go wrong with a Siobhan Davis series.

Amazing

This is a brutal/wonderful storyline of survival. When you have been brutally beaten by the person that should protect you the most who do you trust? With such strong resistance this leading lady is someone not to under estimate. I fantastic performance.

Serena and Alesso!

Born into a mafia family Serena had no choice when it came to her future and the marriage her father arranged. Her marriage was filled with abuse but her only concern was protecting her children with no regard for herself. Events have occurred that give her the opportunity for a new beginning but the aftereffects of all she has endured have her believing that she is unable to trust or love another man again.

Alesso works for Serena’s sister’s husband and has always been loyal to him and his family. He is aware of what Serena has endured and is drawn to her in a way her has never felt before. He knows that she is so much stronger than even she knows however they are about to be challenged not only by each other but by the escalating threats by outside forces.

Alesso is patient and understanding as he tries to show Serena that he is a man she can count on while Serena with the help of those around her can finally be the strong and feisty woman she was meant to be. Their journey is filled with action, intrigue and romance and no one deserves happiness more than Serena. Between the angst and the suspense the narrators had you experiencing what the characters were feeling. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Mafia Romance

Scared to Love by Siobhan Davis is a dark mafia romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Sarah Puckett and Tyler Darby. This is the third book in the Mazzone Mafia series and can be read as a standalone.

I absolutely love Siobhan's books! She does an amazing job pulling me into the story. I really enjoyed the relationship that bloomed between Serena and Alessandro.

Sarah and Tyler did a great job on the duet narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would recommend this book if you love mafia romances, dark romances, friends-to-lovers romances, age-gap romances, or second chance romances.
