As the eldest son of Seattle's current mob boss, Carmine Martinelli's life has never really been his own. But he doesn't mind because his family means more to him than his life. Which is why he's determined to make those responsible for the death of his aunt and uncle pay--in inventive and gruesome ways. And what better way to do that than to infiltrate the Russian mafia from the inside? It's a good thing the bratva's princess is stunning and seemingly willing to do whatever he asks. This vengeance could be the perfect mix of business and pleasure.
Nadia Tarenkov has several things stacked against her: she's a woman, and she's not the eldest child in her family. But it doesn't matter. She has her sights set on ruling the syndicate, and she always gets what she wants. When the heir to one of the States' most powerful crime families comes knocking, Nadia sees it for the gift it is. He thinks he has her fooled, but she's smarter, more cunning, and always two steps ahead. She'll beat the gorgeous mobster at his own game, and secure her place in the fold.
What neither of them takes into consideration, however, is that they aren't the only ones with deadly plans in motion. To survive, they'll have to come clean and work together--and acknowledge that the growing love they've been pretending isn't there, is very real.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Kristen Proby and the mafia...yes please and thank you!
I loved Nadia! She was so much more than the designer clothes and a pretty face. She was strong and fearless, smart and a force to be reckoned with. And Carmine knew it. Ohhhh Carmine. He is the epitome of broody alpha. He knew what he wanted at that was Naida.
I liked that while Carmine and Nadia were 'forced' to work together, they also let their guards down. Opened up to one another and shared parts of themselves with each other that they never had before. But as secrets are revealed, things heat up, and not in a good way.
Full of steam, danger, second guessing and family, Underboss was non-stop from the get go. Nadia and Carmine's quasi forbidden romance was hot and full of heart. And that ending! Gah! I am so ready to see what Kristen Proby has in store as this series moves forward.
