About the Giordano Family Series
An interview with the author…
What makes the Giordano Family Series different?
This series started as a simple friends to lovers series. But the characters had other plans. This book turned into a twisty-turny, dark, gritty, urban journey to happily ever after for complex, flawed characters who want one thing – to be themselves, completely and fully.
The Giordano series is about characters who walk the line of right and wrong (mostly on the wrong side of the law) to get what they want and to protect what they hold dear – family. The men and women in the family embark on journeys to find the love they didn’t know wanted in order to get what they didn’t know they needed.
Why a Mafia family?
Why not? Mafia men and bad boys need love too. Plus I love the anti-hero/heroine. The character that you love to hate, that you shouldn’t be rooting for to win but you can (kinda) understand their reasons they became who they did.
Are these books dark?
Yes. But not in the traditional sense. There are situations where morals and ethics come into conflict, where that fine line is walked, crossed and stomped on – hard! But there is no dubious consent. There are situations that are not for the weak or faint of heart. If you like beta men who are essentially good, sweet and romantic – these aren’t the books for you. If you like strong alpha men, not alpha a$$holes, then you will enjoy these books.
To me, a dark romance is one that has an anti-hero, a villain type or a character who would be the antagonist as the hero and (might) totally mindf*ck you. The usual lines of morality and good are distorted and blurred. These are the men, bad boys and thugs who you wouldn’t want to mess with in real life, but are oh so interesting to read about. But they all have a code – a line they will not cross. These are men (and women) who have had bad things happen to them, have seen the seedy underbelly of life, the dangerous, broken and shattered parts of society and the dark side of humanity. And are fighting for their lives, their loves and their families.
