Corrupting the Innocent (Mafia Academy) by P. Rayne ~ Book Review


Corrupting the Innocent by P. Rayne is now live!

Sofia Moretti

For years, I’ve harbored a secret love for my best friend’s older brother. Yet, he’s never shown any sign of sharing my feelings.

My fantasies will remain just that though—fantasies. For two reasons. The first being he’s arranged to marry the cunning and cold-hearted, Aurora Salucci. The second being that Antonio always does what his duty demands, and if his father wants him married to Aurora, he’ll marry her.

Now, I’m forced to watch her parade him all over the Sicuro Academy, our private college for mafia children, as my feelings of loneliness grow.

I do my best to push Antonio from my mind and when another man shows me interest, I hope he’ll help me move on from the man that will never be mine.

Turns out it doesn’t quite work that way though.

Antonio La Rosa

My life has been a series of duties—to the mafia, to my father, but never to myself.

That’s why my father arranged my engagement to Aurora Salucci. We’re a good match as far as mafia politics go but it leaves a lot to be desired for me. She’s nothing I’ve ever wanted in a wife with her hard edges and being about as malleable as granite.

Then there’s Sofia Moretti, my little sister’s best friend. I never looked at her with anything other than sisterly affection, until recently.

Now, she consumes my every thought. My every desire.

Her innocence beckons me, and I yearn to be the one who taints it.

But I have a duty. And that duty means prioritizing my family’s needs above my own.

And right now, the family needs me to uncover the traitor plotting against us. Little do I know, the enemy is closer than I ever imagined.

This book had it all, and I was there for every moment of it. Mafia, Dark, Arranged Marriage, Love Triangle, Sisters Best Friend, Virgin Heroine, Academia, Steamy, and so much more!

Sofia has had a crush on Antonio for years but he is now engaged to marry someone else so it's time to push her feelings aside and move on. Only now that Antonio finally sees her for the woman she's become and not just his little sisters best friends things get more complicated.

Antonio has always put his family first so when his father arranged his marriage to the obnoxious Aurora he just agreed with it and was prepared to go along with his family duty. Now he wants something for himself, the sweet and innocent Sofia.

Things at Sicuro Academy definitely get interesting this semester and you're going to want to read all about it. There is so much going on that I didn't want the story to end. I cannot wait for the next book, Coveting the Mafia King's Sister, which is due out in October.

I highly recommend this book and this series to those that enjoy STEAMY Dark Romances, or Mafia Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
