They are the lost boys.
Sons of mafia mistresses expected to keep their fathers’ sins in the shadows. 
The lucky ones are forgotten. 
Unfortunately for Valentino “Tino” Moretti, his brother Nova was too smart to be forgotten, and too valuable to risk when he resists a life of crime.
So they punished Tino instead. 
Forced into the cruel world of the Sicilian Mafia at twelve, Tino was broken before he was old enough to know the man he was supposed to be.
Now he’s what the mafia made him. 
The enforcer. 
A trained killer forbidden to love, but he did anyway.
He loved Brianna all along. 
Raw and beautiful, their romance was all consuming and far too dangerous. 
They were ripped apart a long time ago. 
It’s not until the borgata tries to put out a hit on her that Brianna falls back into Tino’s arms, churning up their dark past and unraveling all the Moretti brothers’ closely guarded secrets. 
This isn’t the end of the story.
It’s only the beginning and it is brutal. 
There’s a reason enforcers are considered too deadly to love. 

“We have to be better than them. Stronger. Faster. Smarter. Lost boys have to fly.” ~Carlo Moretti, original lost boy.




Excerpt





Tino dropped his head back against the headrest. “I’m tired, Bri. I’m being an asshole to you because I’m just so tired, and I’m sorry about that.”


“Me too. Very tired,” she whispered into the night, realizing he was the only other person who understood. Tino lolled his head to the side and stared at her for a long time after the confession, long enough to make her uncomfortable. “What?”


“Nothing.” He shrugged, his gaze running over her again, hot and possessive. “You look healthy too.”

“I’ve been doing CrossFit before the shows. Helps keep me nimble for the more physical scenes.”

A smile quirked at the corner of his mouth. “Do you need help being nimble?”

“There’s always room for improvement,” she reminded him. “You know that.”

“Mmm.” He reached out and caressed her hair, making her shiver against her will when he tucked it behind her ear. “I’m sorry for saying you make bad life choices.”

“Well.” She arched an eyebrow at that. “I did marry a man who tried to kill me. Can’t really fault you for calling it like it is.”

“So cynical.” He sighed. “I’m sorry life’s been mean to you, baby. I would give anything to make it stop hurting you. Not that I’ve had any luck in that department, but if I did, that’d be what I’d wish for.”

“Ditto.” Her voice cracked, betraying her. “I’m sorry I keep running to you to save me. Bad habit.”

“Don’t be sorry for that.” Tino tugged on her hair, forcing her closer. Then he slipped his hand behind her neck and swept his thumb over the fine hairs on her nape. He leaned in and breathed against her mouth. “Never be sorry for that.”

He kissed her like he couldn’t resist, and she eagerly parted to him in an unabashed need she couldn’t hide. She didn’t even see why she should. They both knew this trip could very likely end with one or both of their funerals, but they had this. They always had this.

With a low groan of defeat, he pushed his tongue into her mouth.

God, it felt good.

She had forgotten how much a kiss from Tino could make her ache. The way his tongue brushed against hers. The feel of his fingers tight in her hair. It was like being injected with a liquid pleasure that jolted her awake after what felt like a lifetime of unhappiness.

She wasn’t ashamed of the way she ended up grabbing at the lapels of his jacket, because he was breathless too. His chest rose and fell in sharp, hard pants of need, but he was pulling away too soon with a grunt of denial.

Tino fell back against the seat and rubbed a hand over his face. He opened his mouth, as if he wanted to say something. Then he seemed to think better of it and leaned forward to start the car, leaving Brianna frustrated instead.


5 "LOST BOY" STARS

Yeesh, I don’t even know how to do justice in a review of The Enforcer but I will try. I am a long time Kele Moon fan but I have to say this book is her best yet. I don’t know how she is going to top it but I know she will. It takes talent to write a good mafia story, especially in the romance genre. It’s a dark and dirty world, and you need someone that can bring grit to it so it doesn’t come off as a fluff piece, Ms. Moon definitely achieved this.

The Enforcer is Tino Moretti’s story and it is truly a tale of sacrifice and survival. It is also the origin story of Tino, Nova, and Romeo; how they came to be and how Tino found love with Brianna. I think at it's core The Enforcer is a story about family and loyalty. The bond between, Tino, Nova, Brianna, Carina, and Carlo was beautifully told.

This actually took me about a week to read because I had to put it down a few times. You know Tino is the jokester and life of the party but I wasn’t prepared for the pain underneath it all. Tino is such a sweet soul and I didn’t expect the depravity he lived through, it really gutted me. I adored Brianna, she was fearless and her unwavering love for Tino was beautiful. Tino didn't feel he deserved this love, but he does, and I am so anxious for him to get his HEA.

 
Never forget that. You take from whores. Use them. Don't love them"
"Why?"
"'Cause they're love starved. They've been hurt and beaten for so fucking long they are desperate for kindness. Love them, really love them, and they'll die for you. They'll bleed for you.
  
 
 Another big standout for me was Carina; I want to be her when I grow up. She was hilarious, fearless, and strong. That girl is one serious badass and her devotion to Tino was amazing. I would love to learn more about Carina down the line.

Don’t hesitate to read The Enforcer because you are worried about a cliffy. The Enforcer ended in excellent spot. Not to say that I don’t want part II now but I am satisfied with where The Enforcer ended. Tino’s story really did require two parts; there was so much to be told about the Moretti’s. Ms. Moon leaves no stone unturned, every line is important, and it makes for a rich and meaty story.
