Desolation (La Famiglia Book 1)

Thank you to author AJ Alexander for the gifted copy of Desolation. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis

des·o·la·tion
/ˌdesəˈlāSH(ə)n/

noun
1. a state of complete emptiness or destruction.
2.anguished misery or loneliness.

Before La Famiglia gave me purpose, desolation ruled my existence. Pain was my constant companion until I met Francesca Giordano – the Boss’s daughter.

My mission is to protect her, at any cost.

With a price on her head, I will tear down heaven and hell to protect what’s mine.

Review

AJ Alexander is a new to me author and I am SO, SO glad that I discovered her!! In this book, AJ Alexander writes of a mafia princess and the man who is tasked with protecting her. Since this author was a new to me author, I had no idea what to expect walking into this story. However, at 84 pages, this novella did not disappoint. This book started with action and the action continued throughout. AJ Alexander pulled me in from page 1 and didn’t let go until page 84. I enjoyed the characters that AJ Alexander created and their interactions with each other. I also really liked how quickly AJ Alexander explained the the history of the characters and then continued on with the meat of the story. AJ Alexander writes in a way that makes you believe that you are part of the action and adventure of the story and makes you like the characters instantly. I was actually sad that this book was so short, and would have loved for it to go on longer. I am so glad that I discovered AJ Alexander and can’t wait to read more of her books!!!
