Don’t Tempt Me, an all-new smoking-hot dark mafia standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Renee Rose is available now!
I grew up in The Family, but I’m no mafia princess.
I’m the castaway they threw crumbs to after my father’s murder.
Now Joey LaTorre shows up at my door and won’t take no for an answer.
He’s the bad boy I crushed on as a teen–
But I can’t fall for a man like him. I won’t.
I’ll never return to La Cosa Nostra.
Even if he learns to unlock every secret to my body–
I must keep him away from my heart.
The book is a lengthened and revised version of the previously published story The Bossman.

“Why me?” The words croak out of me.
He tilts his head to the side. “I don’t know, Soph. I just think…you might be the one.”
Panic rises in my throat. I might have conceded we were exclusively screwing. But I’m not getting pulled back into the Family. No matter how weak-kneed its crown prince makes me.
“I’m not, Joey.”
His expression shutters, but if anything, he looks more resolute. More stubborn. “We’ll see. For now, no more men. Got it?”
I lift my chin. “Are you asking me or telling?”
“I’m asking.” I see a flicker of humor around his lips. “In a forceful way.”
I can’t help it. I laugh. “Yeah, I’m getting that.”
His hands are gentle on me now, settled on my hips. He brushes his lips over the shell of my ear. “Do I still get dinner tomorrow night?”
I don’t know why I’m trembling–whether it’s from the orgasm or the conversation or just Joey’s continued closeness. “Yeah.” I breathe the word.
He puts a knuckle under my chin. “Yeah?”
I stare into the dark brown pools of his eyes and nod.
His lips brush over mine. “I’ll see you tomorrow, then.”
The moment he leaves, I miss his body. Crave his attention back on me. Want to learn his secrets. But that’s crazy. I don’t know what I’m doing with this man.
Hot sex is one thing, but I can’t get into a serious relationship with him. Tomorrow night I’ll explain that clearly. When his hands aren’t on my skin. His scent isn’t surrounding me. Before he makes my body hum and my throat hoarse from begging.
