Mafia Themed Book Recommendations

I recently had a nice discussion with someone on Instagram about our favorite Mafia romances. The talk is still in my head, so here are my favorite Mafia Romances!

First in a series, book two is my fave!


An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.


I had a plan.


Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?


Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn’t exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.


That’s when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn’t a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn’t buying that either.


Too bad for him, I won’t let anyone get in the way of my mission.


Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He’s the worst kind of wrong- and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.


Because they took her from me, and I’m going to make them pay.



First in a series, book two (The Maddest Obsession) is my favorite Mafia Romance of all time.


She’s a romantic at heart, living in the most unromantic of worlds . . .


Nicknamed Sweet Abelli for her docile nature, Elena smiles on cue and has a charming response for everything. She’s the favored daughter, the perfect mafia principessa . . . or was.


Now, all she can see in the mirror’s reflection is blood staining her hands like crimson paint.


They say first impressions are everything . . .


In the murky waters of New York’s underworld, Elena’s sister is arranged to marry Nicolas Russo. A Made Man, a boss, a cheat—even measured against mafia standards. His reputation stretches far and wide and is darker than his black suits and ties. After his and Elena’s first encounter ends with an accidental glare on her part, she realizes he’s just as rude as he is handsome.


She doesn’t like the man or anything he stands for, though that doesn’t stop her heart from pattering like rain against glass when he’s near, nor the shiver that ghosts down her spine at the sound of his voice.


And he’s always near. Telling her what to do. Making her feel hotter than any future brother-in-law should. Elena may be the Sweet Abelli on the outside, but she’s beginning to learn she has a taste for the darkness, for rough hands, cigarettes, and whiskey-colored eyes. Having already escaped one scandal, however, she can hardly afford to be swept up in another.


Besides, even if he were hers, everyone knows you don’t fall in love with a Made Man . . . right?



This one isn't explicitly MAFIA, but Damon runs the city and it has the same feel. It's a duology and a spin-off of Skye Warren's Endgame Trilogy.


The highest stakes...


My father gambles every night, falling deeper and deeper into debt. When he hits the bottom, he places a new bet: his daughter. I'm his entry bet to the biggest underground poker game.


Every kind of danger circles the velvet-covered table, but only one man makes me tremble.


A trailer park princess.


The son of a criminal king.


We don't belong together, but I'm caught in a twisted game.


His eyes meet mine with dark promise. And when he puts down his cards, I know I'm going to lose more than my body. I'm going to lose everything.
