Antonio De Luca -The Early Years: A Prequel to Antonio and Sabrina Struck In Love

Thank you to author Chiquita Dennie for the gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis

Antonio loves his life just the way it is. Money, cars, more women than he can count. He wants for nothing, except to not be forced to follow in his father’s footsteps. The mafioso lifestyle isn’t for him… at least, not yet.

With pressure mounting, he soon realizes he’s more like his father than he thought he was. That proves even evident when one of the many women in his life tries to pin a baby on him and force him to commit. That pressure pushed him over the edge and drives him to do something he swore he’d never do. Now he must live with what he’s done and who he has become.

Note: This is a short story that takes place before the Antonio and Sabrina Book 1. Adult content and explicit language.

Review

Chiquita Dennie has done it again! Pulled me in at page one and kept the pages turning until I was done with the book before I knew what hit me! I have only read a few books by Chiquita Dennie, but this prequel was enough to get me hooked and wanting to read the rest of the Antonio and Sabrina books in the series! Chiquita has a way of writing that captures you on page one and never lets you go. Her writing is so descriptive that it allows you to be a part of the story and experience what the characters of her book are feeling. I can’t say enough good things about Chiquita Dennie. I am so excited to pick up more of her books!

Review

I Deserve His Love by Chiquita Dennie, was a nice quick read. While there was a lot to pack into this novella in the short amount of pages it contained, Chiquita Dennie did a fantastic job of including all the relevant details, while adding in some of the nice “fluff” we all like, which makes a book a book!! Chiquita did a great job of explaining the characters, explaining the plot, and then telling the story all in a succinct fashion. This book spanned several time periods and Chiquita Dennie did a fantastic of keeping the reader in the know of what was happening. I was never confused as to where I was in the timeline. I really enjoyed the story of Makayla and Amir and felt that that the story was very realistic, filled with joy, heartache, and love. I defiantly enjoyed this book and will be picking up more books by Chiquita Dennie in the future!!
