 I'm reading the first five books in the Battaglia Mafia Series this week. This quote is from the book 1. Mirabella & Giovanni are "getting to know one another"

"What are you doing here?" she asked. 

" I could ask you the same. As I recall, you had too much to do to entertain my dinner proposal."

Swiping her hair from her face, she expelled a frustrated laugh. "Did you know I was coming? Is this some kind of setup?"

"It's a response to your invitation."

"I didn't invite you here." she frowned. 

Giovanni walked in closer to her so she could read the determined look in his eye. "Here, in Italia, if a woman take notice and makes direct eye contact with a man like myself, it's considered an invitation."

"Oh please, So I can't look at an attractive man without him thinking I want something more?"

"You find me attractive?"

After a flirty laugh she turned back to the banister and faced the lake. She cast her gaze over to the left revealing her profile. He studied the delicate perfection of her slender nose, high cheekbones and full lips. "You find yourself attractive. Guess I was just agreeing with you."

  1. It sounds good, but it seems full of errors[bad editing I mean]

  2. It's the first Book...they get better :)

  3. I get crazy mean when I find that in books, so I don't read self published stuff if I can, they usually are the worst at it...

  4. I do believe the others she had an editor... not sure why not with this one. I really wanted to read this series so...

    This is only at the beginning of the Book so I'm not sure how the rest reads. Generally if the editing isn't that bad, I'll read it. I've seen some professional books with bad editing.

  5. I enjoyed your reviews on these. I didn't know about this series, but now I really want to read them. I confess that I'm most drawn to that last story. I love reading about people with physical challenges.

  6. LOL! I love that line she tossed over her shoulder at him. Good pick!

  7. Thanks Sophia :D I will say that last story took me by surprise.. it was so well done too.

  8. Gah yeah Sharonda I've had quite a few publishing house books lately that are just riddled with them. It's crazy.
