Review by: CRISSY MACKEY on Oct. 27, 2013 :
"Mobster's Girl" was definately a great read. It will keep you hooked to the end. The book starts off great and gets better and more exctiting as you read. Antonio has always wanted Megan, but what happens when you watch everything you want slip away. Antonio lifestyle puts Megan in danger, but what happens when the danger comes from someone closer to home. Will Antonio be able to save Megan when the truth comes out? The chemistry between the characters are great, nothing seems rushed and you watch the characters develop. This book also allows you to see everything from Megan's and Antonio POV. "Mobster's Girl is full of twist, lies and betrayal. It was such an easy read and the flow was great, I read it in one sitting. This book does end with a cliffhanger and you will want to find out how everything turns out. This book is definately worth reading and I look forward to reading the next book in the series

I knew three pages in to this book that I would love it and I wasn’t disappointed. The vocabulary at the beginning of each chapter and its use in the book gave a very authentic feel and made me feel very much a part of what I was reading. The characters were interesting and far from flat. My only complaint would be that the book is to short, but luckily there is a second and third book, which I will start reading as soon as I finish praising this one!

Review by: Marie LaRue on Jan. 20, 2013 :
I absolutely loved this story! The characters are very well developed and the mobster lifestyle and New Jersey Italian culture is deeply ingrained in this heartfelt story of forbidden love. This book is fast-paced and action packed. It barely left me time to catch my breath because once I started it, I couldn't put it down!

I loved how the book was written from each person's POV. It allowed me to fully understand the reason behind the character's actions and their love for one another.

There isn't any sex in this book and that's part of what makes it so special. The characters have known each other for years, but do not take the relationship straight to the bedroom as most current books do.

It is, indeed, a short story that ends with a very climactic twist and cliffhanger that left me wanting more. I definitely plan on picking up the second book as soon as I can!

My only complaint with this book is that there were quite a few typo's and small errors, but I was able to look over them and thoroughly enjoy the story.

I received this book as a gift for review.

This book was ok. I didn't really connect with the characters and it was, in my opinion, very predictable. I don't think Megan's character was as developed as Tonio. I think Megan was a bit flaky, for lack of a better word, though the author did try to make her seem strong and independent. As for Tonio, family meant everything to him. He did as he was told. No questions asked, no second guessing, no remorse. He was a hard ass, but as with Megan, the author tried to make him look sweet and loving. There was a lot of contradiction with his character and at times I actually caught myself rolling my eyes.

I also didn't feel the chemistry between the h/h. Their relationhip felt rushed even though they knew each other for years.

Overall it was an ok read, however, for me, there wasn't enough there to keep my interest.

This was a good read as in a "short, fun ride" kind of way. It was sweet and clever but entirely too short. There was so much opportunity for more conversations between the characters but sadly they weren't there. Even though it was short and quick I could still feel the emotions in the characters and feel compelled to find out more. Overall great story. Please....Amy Rachiele write us more next time.

I received this book for free to give an honest review.

AMAZING! I have never read an Italian book before and I found myself at times trying to read with an Italian accent. I would have to catch myself. I loved reading Megan and Antonio's story and what Antonio did for his father. Mobster's Girl is filled with some action not a lot, a lot of little teenage love, friendship, and drama. I was hooked from the first page, and now I want to read book two for sure as I want to know what else is going to happen. There was a surprise twist towards the end that I did not see coming which was pretty cool.

I enjoyed the style of Amy's writing especially when she would switch it up from Megan's pov to Antonio's pov. I thought the name of the chapter titles was interesting, as it told you the Italian verb meanings.
Megan and Antonio's love will be tested on all accounts, but will stand up between the family?

Antonio's father is the mob boss and that makes him the mob bosses son. He has his eye on the fiery red head named Megan and he has been hooked on her for years! But can they ever be together? Megan's family does not want her involved and Megan knows this until one night at a party. Opposites attract!
Read the book to find out what happens next.

There were a few editing errors, but I did not pay attention as I was too engrossed in the story to really care.

Review by: Fiona Wilson on Jan. 11, 2013 :
Hadn't realised this was a Young Adult book when I was gifted it to read and review. However this wasn't a problem as I enjoy reading these kind of books. The story is basically a love story between 2 young people who really shouldn't be together as they have nothing in common. Or at least that is what we are led to believe. I liked the fact the author shared some Italian words, their translation and also correct way to pronounce them. I enjoyed the 2 different perspectives in the story from each of the main characters. It was nice to see how the characters were feeling about each other immediately rather than wait till later in the story, or by just imagining how they felt. Maybe it's because I didn't over think the story, but I didn't see the twist coming until it hit me in the face! There are a few things though which I didn't like. The book isn't the longest I have read, just as the story was getting exciting it ended. The grammar/spelling isn't the best at times and I'm afraid that is something which is important to me, I do appreciate good grammar and spelling. It would have been nice to have seen a bit more of the romance and how they fall for each other. All in all this is a good read, and I am off now to buy the second one!

Review by: Victoria Hartman on Oct. 30, 2012 :
Received this book through the ARR program on Goodreads. This book was a surprisingly good read. The things I liked most about this book were the main characters. They were all likeable and easy to visualize. I also liked that it was a quick read with enough action to keep it moving and once I started I didn't want to put it down. There were a couple of things I did not like such as the poor editing. I felt like there were a lot of punctuation issues and grammatical errors. I also thought it was a little predictable and that the characters were somewhat one dimensional. They fit their chosen stereotypes almost to the letter which didn't leave a lot of room for them to be intriguing or a little mysterious. I felt like there was no hidden qualities about them which would have made them more interesting. The Irish girl with red hair who was kind of a good girl and never got into trouble ane the bad boy from the mob family who drank and cursed and beat people up and was trouble, just too predictable. Over all I was interested in what happened to them and look forward to the next installment.

Good read but could have been great...

3.5 stars!

Mobster's Girl is a YA Romance written by Amy Rachiele.

The Review:
I liked this book. It was a sweet story about two opposites coming together only to find out they aren't so different after all. I really liked both Megan and Antonio. Megan was sweet and shy but also stern and formidable. Antonio was the quintessential mobster's son. He was learning the family business as the author takes us inside his world rife with violence. But at the same time he's also trying to keep his darker side from Megan. Troy was Megan's best friend and his unrequited love for her was heartbreaking as he realized he was losing her to another.

You get a switch between both Megan and Antonio's POV's which is done very well and allows you to see into both of their worlds. There are shocking and exciting moments as well as secrets to discover in this book, but there was just something missing.

My biggest complaint is this book glossed over events that I felt should have been written out so the reader could experience them along with the characters. I wish there had been more dates between Megan and Antonio or at least more interaction before they both realized they were in love. The relationship, although building from a distance since childhood, just seemed rushed once they connected and since the book itself was so short, I thought the author could have added a few more events to really draw the reader into their relationship. All the right components were there to make this a truly fascinating love story but it just didn't follow through thoroughly enough for me.

Also, I didn't understand the mother's reaction to Megan's pain. She seemed like a caring mom up until that point and then she just sits back and smugly smiles down at her daughter from a haughty perch while her daughter is suffering? Oookay...

The Wrap Up:
Though I enjoyed this book, I wanted more time to get to know the characters. I wanted to spend more time inside their lives but the story was so short, coming in at about 130 pages, that there just wasn't enough time or events to really sink my teeth into them.

Though this book isn't listed as a series, there is a second book titled, Awakening the Mobster, and I was entertained enough that I'll probably read on to the next.

NOTE:: I read this as a R2R with We ♥ YA Books! at Goodreads. As always, a special thank you to the mods and author for allowing me to participate.

MOBSTER'S GIRL BY AMY RACHIELE

Traduction du synopsis:
Maintenir fermement ma poitrine est la seule façon de me garder en un seul morceau,, ou ce qui reste de moi va s'écrouler en pièces. La semaine dernière m'a éclairé sur une chose: je m'en fous.
Megan, Mobster’s Girl

Je n'ai même pas hésité. J'étais sur lui en deux enjambées et lui ait décroché mon poing au visage. Il s'y était préparé cette fois-ci, contrairement à la fois à l'église. Il a essayé de me frapper à son tour mais j'esquivai et le cognai à nouveau.
Antonio, Mobster’s Girl

Vous ne pouvez pas choisir la famille dans laquelle vous êtes et vous ne pouvez pas empêcher les mensonges qu'ils vous cachent. Vous ne pouvez pas éviter qu'ils vous façonnent de la manière dont ils le désiraient. Les monstres naissent-ils ou sont-ils crées ?
Antonio et Megan ont un problème intemporel. On leur a dit de rester à l'écart l'un de autre. Ils essaient, ils essaient vraiment. Mais ils sont attirés l'un vers l'autre...

Résumé:
Antonio est le fils du mafieux qui contrôle la ville. Megan est une jeune fille timide, préservée des horreurs de la vie. Depuis leur plus jeune âge, on les avait tenu à l'écart l'un de l'autre. Adolescents, leurs parents leur avaient interdit de se fréquenter. Pourtant, leur dernière année de lycée, les choses vont changer...

Impressions:
Beaucoup trop court à mon goût!

J'ai vraiment bien aimé le dénouement. Je ne m'attendais pas du tout à ce revirement de situation et à l'hypocrisie pleine de bons sentiments des adultes de cette histoire. J'ai été bluffé par les dernières lignes qui m'ont vraiment donné envie de poursuivre ma lecture. Pas de bol, c'était déjà la fin!

Même si les personnages font un peu cliché avec le beau gosse, fils du mafieux du New Jersey qui dépense sans compter pour la belle, timide effarouchée: Megan, je pense que la suite pourrait révéler de la profondeur chez l'héroïne. Je l'imagine bien se transformer en Uma Turman dans Kill Bill et botter le cul aux méchants.

Bien construit, agréable à lire, ce roman commençait à devenir intéressant lorsque déjà les dernières lignes sont arrivées. Je suis donc restée sur ma faim car je passais un très bon moment et que je sentais l'histoire prendre une tournure plus tragique que la très chaste histoire d'amour à la Roméo et Juliette. Espérons qu'Antonio et Megan ne fissent pas comme les deux amants maudits.

Je suis un peu dure...Toujours quand je me sens frustrée mais j'avoue de cette belle histoire a du potentiel. J'espère bien ne pas me tromper dans « Awakening the Mobster ». A suivre...

Review by: Sheri on Oct. 14, 2012 :
I really enjoyed this book. I only wish it had been a bit longer. It seemed that just when things started getting exciting, there was the end. Although the characters might be a bit cliché (shy, pretty 'good girl' versus handsome 'bad boy'), it works for the story. I love Megan and Antonio and the circumstances surrounding their relationship. They've known of each other their entire lives but have been kept at a distance.

This is a classic story of star-crossed lovers, which I immensely enjoyed. The author is a great storyteller, going back and forth between Megan's and Antonio's points of view. With this style, we get to see a bit of both of their worlds. The author kept enough of the story back to keep us guessing but told us enough that we wanted to know more.

Review by: Kirsty Vizard on Oct. 12, 2012 :
When I started reading this book I had just finished a particularly heavy story and thank Amy Rachiele for my gifted copy as I needed the escapism that a young adult romance offers.
I found that the story of 'Mobster's Girl' was based heavily on stereotypes, which I found humorous but it did not remove from my enjoyment of the book.
Megan is an Irish girl who lives in an American-Italian neighbourhood, and is in a minority at school. However, she manages to attract the attention of the Italian boys mainly because of her red hair, pale skin and pretty face.
Tonio is a mobster's son who has just turned 18 and so been initiated into his father's "business"; he is surrounded by a world of violence, undertaking "work" for his dad. He has been warned to stay away from Megan but for a long time he has watched her and wanted her . . .
This book drew me in with its Romeo and Juliet plot line, which ran alongside the sometimes shocking story of Toni's life. Tonio is the stained character next to Megan's chaste one and the reader is left questioning if the relationship will work under the pressure, but at the same time wishing for a happy ending.
The peripheral characters that Amy Rachiele writes add humour and drama to the story - I loved Vito and Alessandra, Toni's friends; I wanted to constantly punch Troy, Megan's "best friend" and Erin was the perfect little sister!
'Mobster's Girl' has romance, violence and an explosive, heart-wrenching conclusive twist which had me heading straight for Amazon to buy the sequel!
I would recommend this to all fans of Young Adult Romance . . . Enjoy!!!

Review by: Amy on Oct. 07, 2012 :
Wow! I read this book in just a few short hours tonight. It totally sucked me in! I loved Megan and Antonio and their relationship. I received this book for free from the author and I am so thankful. Based on the description, it didn't really sound like something I normally like, but I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. I loved the story.

The "twist" seemed a little predictable, but it wasn't totally obvious. I'm sad I can't recommend this book to my middle school's librarian because of the cursing. I am glad that Amy Rachiele didn't make it a smut book. When I read YA romance, I was worried there might be too much of a focus on the physical. While I enjoy books like that from time to time, it just seems it distracts from the plot and a lot of authors don't write that kind of stuff very well.

I really enjoyed Amy Rachiele's writing style. I also really liked having the switching POVs between Megan and Tonio. It's always great, to me, to get to hear the other person's point of view and what they're thinking. Such a quick and easy read that really sucks you in...just my kind of book!

All in all, I'm so thankful for my free copy and I can't wait to read about what happens next for Megan and Antonio!! :D

Rating: definitely 4.5/5 stars. Remember, I'm very stingy with my 5 star ratings. But this was so close, so it deserves better than just a 4 star rating.

Additionally: I bought the second book, Awakening the Mobster, today and read it all in one sitting. I LOVED it!! I couldn't put it down. Make sure you pick up the second book right away!

First I must say from the cover I had no idea this was a young adult read. In fact if I would have known I would have probably read the book sooner rather than later. The cover does tell some of the story but I think it pushes readers away thinking they already know this particular story. Antonio is supposed to be 18 and the character on the cover looks 30!
The characters and romance are young the backstory pretty adult. I was pleasantly surprised by this book and its ability to entertain me. The story is unique and has a couple of twists. I was able to figure out one of the twists about half way through but I don't really think the intent was for that to be the big twist. The big twist is understanging how Megan is this shy, sweet, sheltered girl about to leave for college but ends up being the strength of her family. This is explained at the very end. I can visually picture each character in this book mostly due to the great writing by Amy R but some (mob characters) due to movies and TV (The Sopranos, Jersey Shore) never the less the author still fully developes each character (personality and looks). I want to know what happens with Megan's family and sister, Troy, Vito, who is the snitch? Will Antonio get away from it all or does he want to? Will Megan still go to college...pleassseeee I hope she goes? The second book has already been downloaded and will be read tonight.
I enjoyed this authors writing style, the story flowed well, not many editing errors, and as previously stated the characters were very well developed.
When I saw how short the book was I worried the ending would be rushed which occurs in sooooo many stories but it was not. If this story has to be more than one book it ends at the perfect time. I am so glad I gave this book a chance and I will recommend this story. A solid 4 stars as I reallllly liked it and every time I tried to not read it "They Pull Me Back In."

Review by: Sara Gordon on Sep. 28, 2012 :
I would like to thank the author for giving me this book for an honest review. That being said: I loved it!! I wasn't too sure what I would think or feel, but as soon as I started I couldn't put it down.

This story is about Megan and Antonio. They both live in Jersey and have been told they are off limits to each other since they were kids. But secretly, they have had crushes on each other forever. The beginning felt a little like Romeo and Juliet. They are now 18, and Antonio is having a hard time keeping his feeling to himself. He watches her all the time, and all his friends and family notice. So Alessandra decides to help him out, invites Megan to a party, and things heat up from there. Antonio takes a chance and Megan gives in. But things aren't always as they seem, and both have problems in the mob, even if they don't realize it. Circumstances try to tear them apart, but in the end they are thrown back together to survive.

Even though Antonio is the mob boss' son, I could not help falling for him and wanting things to work out with Megan. And Megan ended up being a pretty stong female with what was thrown at her.

The romance was great and tense, and not overbearing. This does have mob violence and language, so it is for a little bit older teen and adults. I highly recommend for a different kind of love story, and I am off to go look up the next book!

Where to start with this book!
Amazing!

It's a great love story between Megan and Tonio and the perils of their families and the secrets that are kept. The bond between the two are put to the test from family, loyalty and outside forces.

The story makes you believe that you are there with the characters.

I devoured this book in a day. The story will grip you from the start and you won't want to put it down.

Amy's writing style was great, it was from both characters protagonist and i loved the Italian verb meanings on each chapter.

The book could have been a little longer, though i am pleased that there is a second book 'Awakening the mobster' which i will be buying : )

Wow. Simply wow. This is my new favourite book. Not only the main characters are awesome, it has a great blend of romance, family drama and old school mafia mob boss. Amy potrayed the characters beautifully and the storyline is simply fascinating. This book also taught me a lot of Italian words. I took my time reading this cause I didn't want it to end. I'm going to try to get the next book cause I'm dying due to the suspense. I seriously love this book. Keep writing!

Mobster's Girl by Amy Rachiele

So this is the first book I’ve read by Amy Rachiele, her writing was easy to read, plot and character development was well written, and the story flowed really well. I picked up this book this afternoon and finished it in one sitting with a few cups of coffee.

Mobster’s Girl is about a young woman name Megan who all the sudden notices Antonio is looking at her. Antonio is tall dark and handsome and a bit dangerous young, he is also from a very well off and powerful family in their neighborhood. The title of this book says it all. Antonio remembers meeting Megan when he was 5 years old and is fascinated with her, but years ago he and his friends were warned by his father not to go near her. But you know what happens when parents tell you not to do something…. They talk ………….and Antonio knows he want Megan to be his. Megan knows her parents won’t approve but that doesn’t stop her, she gets butterflies when he smiles at her.

Mobster’s Girl is about romance, coming of age, and finding out sometimes people are not always what they appear. I really enjoyed Megan and Antonio’s love story and cannot wait to read more.
I have to thank Amy Rachiele for listing her book in our group We ♥ YA Books, and offering our members copies to review so thank you. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series Awakening the Mobster which I just found out was released 2 weeks ago.

I have rated Mobster’s Girl a 4 star rating and if I could I would give 4.5 stars.

But you know what happens when parents tell you not to do something…. They talk ………….and Antonio knows he want Megan to be his. Megan knows her parents won’t approve but that doesn’t stop her, she gets butterflies when he smiles at her.

Mobster’s Girl is about romance, coming of age, and finding out sometimes people are not always what they appear. I really enjoyed Megan and Antonio’s love story and cannot wait to read more.
I have to thank Amy Rachiele for listing her book in our group We ♥ YA Books, and offering our members copies to review so thank you. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series Awakening the Mobster which I just found out was released 2 weeks ago.

I have rated Mobster’s Girl a 4 star rating and if I could I would give 4.5 stars.
