enjoy reading Luca and Izzie s story as I much as I loved writing it Reviewing my own novel is not that simple, so I thought I d share with everyone my inspiration for this novel.I hope that by the time you finish this book you can honestly say, Luca Corrupted Me What Inspired This Novel I If you love romance novels and stories about the Mafia, you will love this book I m the author of Corrupt Me Of course, I rated my own book 5 stars I had so much fun writing this novel I hope you all enjoy reading Luca and Izzie s story as I much as I loved writing it Reviewing my own novel is not that simple, so I thought I d share with everyone my inspiration for this novel.I hope that by the time you finish this book you can honestly say, Luca Corrupted Me What Inspired This Novel I was watching Goodfellas, one of my favorite movies, and I started thinking about Henry and Karen s relationship I ve always loved when Henry takes Karen to The Copacabana That was her first real taste of what it was like to date a wiseguy, and when I started plotting this novel, I instantly saw a lot of Karen in Izzie There s a certain thrill Izzie gets when she s around Luca, and that part of her character was inspired by Lorraine Bracco s portrayal of Karen in Goodfellas Then, I switched gears and thought about The Godfather I was mostly inspired by The Godfather and the relationship between Michael Corleone and Kay Adams I always wondered what could ve happened if they had worked as a team,like Bonnie and Clyde without all the violence When I created Luca s character, I knew without a doubt that he was a little bit of Michael Corleone But I think what I did with his character will surprise some readers I was also inspired by Vincent Piazza s portrayal of Lucky Luciano in Boardwalk Empire For those of you who have read The Godfather novel, I hope you get some of the references I purposely placed at the end There s a scene between Kay Adams and Tom Hagen at the end of the book that is not in the movies, and that pivotal scene is what helped shape this novel Tom delivers a message to Kay that I found absolutely brilliant and made me love the book evenI hope you have the same feeling

Son of the most notorious man in Philadelphia and her first kiss As Luca does everything in his power to make Izzie see that he s not that bad she soon finds out that maybe they havein common than she thought, and that maybe she might be just as corruptedWhen I m with you, it s electric My entire body is on fire, and I feel alive But that s because you re dangerous, not because we re supposed to be together I devoured Corrupt Me, I don t know exactly what it was about it either Maybe it was going through college days with a Marchese son, or maybe it was all the juicy mafia gossip that had you wanting to know every dirty detail I don t know, but it s so addicting I think it was the characters, they totally had me.Izzie was like a Regina George from Mean Girls, everyone was terrified of her but everyone wanted a piece of her She had this insane attitude and loved cursing in Italian especially during sex, which was kind of awesome She was so rough around the edges, and so defiant but I loved watching her walls crumble when Luca entered a room She could deny him all she wanted, but he had her since they were kidsEverything about him screamed danger, and I wanted him to corrupt me in every way possible Luca Marchese, oh my gosh I think I m in love with him A son of a mafia family who has the softest heart Like sign me up, ASAP Wait until Izzie describes him in this book, I mean you will want to rip his clothes off He is dangerous, adorable, a bit of a criminal but his charm and his heart will make you wave a hand at that little part He is my favorite and this being my first mafia romance, I think I need to read about a thousand , so get to writing Jill Obviously the two main characters were my favorites, but all the side characters were just as wonderful Like Izzie s best friend Silvia was hilarious and Luca s mom Melt your heart sweet I loved how characters that you didn t even think much about came into play in a big way They were like this big twist that you never saw coming I had this whole other idea in my head, and then BAM, who the heck are these little twigs That s what I felt like once I got deeper into the storyYou re my don, Izzie You re much stronger than you think This book was so good and perfect if you love romance novels.You will fall in love with the characters, and even the whole mafia aspect is amazing Jill is from Philly and she brought it to life You literally feel like you are walking the streets and experiencing it all for yourselves I also want about a thousand pounds of Marchese Italian food too, it sounds mouth watering Jill is one of my favorite bloggers over at Rant and Rave About Books, and I am so excited to be revieiwing Corrupt Me with you all Thank you so much Jill for letting me be one of the first to read your novel, it s better than good I reccomened this to anyone looking for a great read and a new book boyfriend because Luca Marchese will corrupt you Mark my words, ladies After reading the Vendetta trilogy written by Catherine Doyle, I m deeply addicted to Mafia stories Therefore, when I saw the synopsis of Corrupt Me, I was beyond excited to read this However, I do have mixed feelings about this book and I d like to explain them as much as I can.To begin with, Izzie and Luca are classmates and also childhood friends, but with their different family backgrounds, they are doomed to be enemies for starters Well, I think when you re related to some sort of Mafia After reading the Vendetta trilogy written by Catherine Doyle, I m deeply addicted to Mafia stories Therefore, when I saw the synopsis of Corrupt Me, I was beyond excited to read this However, I do have mixed feelings about this book and I d like to explain them as much as I can.To begin with, Izzie and Luca are classmates and also childhood friends, but with their different family backgrounds, they are doomed to be enemies for starters Well, I think when you re related to some sort of Mafia dynasty, you shouldn t fraternize with your enemy whatsoever Thus, Izzie makes it pretty clear that she doesn t want to have anything to do with him in the first place Like many typical stories, the male protagonist, aka Luca, isn t like everybody so he s not going to give her up that easily Eventually, he successfully gets what he wants after his persistent pursuit Basically, that s what this story is about What I really like about the story 1 Luca and his personality As a president of the fraternity, he gets along well with his buddies and most important of all, he also proves that he ISN T what we think he is in the end of the book He also knew that if Izzie and I had sex that I d lose interest, like I normally do, and that I d move on and forget we ever met He s caring and shows concerns and not just interest or lust for Izzie despite his Mafia heritage What s , I m truly impressed by his determination and patience when it comes to winning Izzie s heart There are several times when Izzie acts like a total b tch and ignores him completely on purpose but he s unfazed by her demeanor Instead of getting angry, he tries different tactics to win her over and that s what moves me most.2 Insight into American fraternity sorority houses Since I ve never experienced anything like the typical American high school life such as fraternity sorority houses, homecoming parties, graduation proms etc., I m really interested in them to some extent Hence, I m pleased to get a closer look at these traditions in this book The author portrays the American high school students life perfectly and her descriptions make me feel like living that kind of life myself while reading it Therefore, I appreciate this aspect of the story very much.3 The ending Although I admit I don t think Corrupt Me is my type of book, I do like its ending The story starts pretty slow in the beginning and the twists I m dying to see don t come after 3 4 of the book But when the sudden change comes, I m quite satisfied with the unexpected turning point Moreover, the ending surprises me a lot because seriously, I don t see THAT coming at all All in all, in spite of everything happening in the last few chapters, I can t think of a better ending What I dislike about the book 1 Izzie Everything about Izzie.As I mentioned before, Izzie s just a rich, spoiled, ungrateful girl to me and she looks down upon most people in this book Her attitude sucks, her characteristics sucks, and everything she does sucksI used boys when I wanted and on my terms However, none of the above pisses me offthan her way of treating Luca She already has tons of stereotypes imprinted in her mind before we get to knowabout Luca First, please excuse me for ranting about my hatred for her in the following passages.Izzie s first impression on Luca seriously can t beclichAll I saw when I looked at him were rock hard abs, chiseled features, and mind blowing sex Okay, so even from the beginning, she has marked him as a playboy who will discard girls he has sex with and keeps on hunting other female prey However, the truth is totally the opposite I don t know why she needs to be such a judgmental mean girl duh Further, we all know she falls for him despite her continuous denial and I m totally fine with that What I m not okay with is the fact that she keeps blaming her feelings on HIM as if it s his fault that she can t help falling in love with him This was a mistake Look what you do to me I can t control myself around you You re dangerous I bit down on my lip, holding back tears It s like you have me under some kind of spell I can t think straight around you We can t be together You re incapable of being with one woman What s worse, there are several scenes that urge me to jump into the book and punch her right in the face because gaaaahhh, I love Luca so much that I can t let her treat him like the way she does Luca pleaded for me to come back I refused to turn around, not even to do a cursory glance over my shoulder as I pushed open the door Anyway, I despise Izzie throughout the book minus the ending She changes a bit in the end but that s not enough to erase my terrible impression on her Period.2 Lack of development among characters.Honestly, I find it hard to get absorbed in the plot because there could bedevelopments among main characters and I m looking for somethingthan its surface For example, we don t know about Luca and Izzie s history enough for us to proceed with the way they re around each other More explanations and information will definitely be much appreciated.All in all, Corrupt Me is another Mafia story that I think some people will absolutely enjoy but unfortunately, it s not really my cup of tea Though I do have a great time knowingabout Luca and his notorious family backgroundThanks to the author for providing me with an e ARC in exchange for an honest review 2 starsUgh, OK I did not like this book It bored me, and I just couldn t connect with it Izzy was a strong female character I guess she was, but I am not sure that I like her though She was kind of superficial, and went on and on and on about herself, and her family Trust me, I can remember details once I read, no need to mention it a hundred times in the book Her family was rich, and powerful I get it.Do I need a remainder in every chapter And do you really want me to have pity for her 2 starsUgh, OK I did not like this book It bored me, and I just couldn t connect with it Izzy was a strong female character I guess she was, but I am not sure that I like her though She was kind of superficial, and went on and on and on about herself, and her family Trust me, I can remember details once I read, no need to mention it a hundred times in the book Her family was rich, and powerful I get it.Do I need a remainder in every chapter And do you really want me to have pity for her She wanted it the money, the power, the position as CEO which I m still hard pressed to believe , and suddenly acting all oh so fragile makes no sense I m probably just complaining because I just in general did not like her.And Luca, he was a crybaby, and just couldn t man up till the very end of the book I guess I m just so used to these kind of books having a strong male character, that I had quite a high expectation from this book He was a weak character He wanted Izzy to see the real him One that didn t care about the money, and the power One that did not want to be associated with a crime family Explain to me why he was the ringmaster of a gambling circuit Why he wouldn t stop even after he was repeatedly warned by his father and Izzy The real him didn t exist I was bored and pissed that the author tried to convince me that it did He was just a spoilt idiot used to getting his way, and when he did not, he went and fucked random chicks to make himself feel better.As the story progressed, it did nothing to improve my view on it The last few chapters when Luca was arrested and shit, it was so forced, like the author suddenly woke up and decided that Oh the book needs to have some sort of confrontation, so that my characters can slay the dragons and become heroes Also, it took me 5 days to complete this book Perhaps the longest it has taken me to finish a novel What does it tell you This book felt like it was two different books The first half wasabout the chase Luca has never forgotten Isabella after his family cut ties with hers when they were young They meet up again in college Isabella realized right away that Luca was a playboy and avoided him A literal run in with him in their senior year sparks Luca into actively pursuing her For the first half of the book, this what you get Luca chased and Isabella waivering back and forth I didn t particularly like th This book felt like it was two different books The first half wasabout the chase Luca has never forgotten Isabella after his family cut ties with hers when they were young They meet up again in college Isabella realized right away that Luca was a playboy and avoided him A literal run in with him in their senior year sparks Luca into actively pursuing her For the first half of the book, this what you get Luca chased and Isabella waivering back and forth I didn t particularly like this part of the book It was very in your face with the college man boy behavior Lots of really brash talk about the college girls and said girls having no self respect This was what kept Izzie from giving in with Luca and I can t say that I blame her It was very unappealing and immature behavior that I have no doubt is realistic, just not something I care to read about Then the second half began It took an FBI agent approaching Izzie trying to get her to turn Luca in that started the change to the story and really is what redeemed this book for me From this point on, the college antics faded away and we got to see the grownup side of these two Both are from corrupt families and trying to make their own mark in the world What I really loved about this book was Izzie turned out to be the one to lead the head of her family, not Luca Usually it s the other way around and it surprisingly worked for me The epilogue was great and almost made up for the first half of the book for me ARC provided by NetGalley I love me a hot mafia type book and this one is a bit different than all of the others I have read For one, the main characters are younger and still in college so it has a bit of the YA theme running though Secondly, you have a young girl in charge of a crime family, so the situations are definitely reversed.But along with this also comes the underlying YA theme While not overrun with angst, yay, this story does have a lot of the YA flavor Isabella is young and hard core A bit mean and def I love me a hot mafia type book and this one is a bit different than all of the others I have read For one, the main characters are younger

She is one of them and made just for him He is possessive and determined to win her Super hot scenes and some sexy romance make this story I love being corrupted and Luca is the one to do it YUM This is a sweet story overall, but there are a few areas that have issues for me Some threads of the story are glazed over with no direct conclusion Others are somewhat assumed and not fully developed I love the romance aspect of the book but the underlying crime mafia portion seems disjointed and could have been developed better.A great first addition to this new series I am looking forward tofrom
