Mila Finelli’s “Mafia Mistress” dives deep into the dark and twisted world of the Italian mafia, revealing an intricate tale of passion, power, and the eternal tussle between control and desire. As the first installment in the Kings of Italy series, this book sets a high bar, promising readers an enthralling journey through the murky waters of mafia politics and forbidden romance.

The dual narrative, switching between Fausto and Francesca, provides a captivating juxtaposition of two worlds colliding. Fausto’s character embodies the quintessential mafia king—cold, calculative, and unapologetically powerful. His dominance stretches far beyond his empire, manifesting in the lives he controls, including that of Francesca, the fiancée to his son. The manner in which Finelli crafts Fausto’s character offers readers an intimate insight into the psyche of a man who wears his darkness like an armor and finds solace in the very shadows others fear.


On the flip side, Francesca is not the archetypal damsel in distress. Her fiery spirit and the underlying sense of rebellion make her an intriguing protagonist. Instead of merely being a pawn in the larger scheme of things, Francesca’s character evolves, showcasing her resilience and the latent power she wields. The dynamic between her and Fausto is electric, full of palpable tension, and challenging traditional power dynamics.

Finelli’s writing shines in her portrayal of the seedy underbelly of the Italian mafia. The vivid descriptions and meticulous detailing transport readers into the heart of Italy, amidst the opulence, danger, and high stakes of the mafia world. The plot is tight, with twists and turns that keep one on the edge of their seat, making it a page-turner.

However, readers should be prepared for the dark themes that the book delves into. The relationship between Francesca and Fausto, while intoxicating, is complex and may not be for the faint-hearted. Their dance of dominance and submission touches upon issues of control, consent, and the blurred lines between right and wrong.

“Mafia Mistress” is a gripping introduction to the Kings of Italy series. Mila Finelli skillfully weaves a tale of lust, power, and the gray areas in between. For readers who relish dark romances with strong characters and a tantalizing plot, this book is a must-read. It sets the stage for what promises to be an enthralling series, leaving readers eager for more.

It’s really one of those books that gives you a few twists that you never expected. It’s not to crazy out there but still just different enough to be great.

Mafia Mistress


I am the darkness, the man whose illicit empire stretches around the globe. Not many have the courage for what needs to be done to maintain power . . .but I do.

And I always get what I want.

Including my son's fiancée.

She's mine now, and I'll use Francesca any way I see fit. She's the perfect match to my twisted desires, and I'll keep her close, ready and waiting at my disposal.

Even if she fights me at every turn.


I was stolen away and held prisoner in Italy, a bride for a mafia king's only heir.

Except I'm no innocent, and it's the king himself—the man called il Diavolo—who appeals to me in sinful ways I never dreamed. Fausto's wickedness draws me in, his power like a drug. And when the devil decides he wants me, I'm helpless to resist him—even if it means giving myself to him, body and soul.

He may think he can control me, but this king is about to find out who's really the boss.
