The Boss (The Hitman Series Book 2) by Ellie Isaacson

A Bookworm Review by Ana

The Boss

Mafia Dark Romance

I give this book 4 stars!

Don’t deny what you truly want.

Have a look at the blurb:

I hated him from the moment I first saw him.

Those bright blue eyes brought reminders of my biggest regret, my greatest loss, the thing that tortured me and had me struggling for control.

Each time I pushed him, he pushed back. Each time he touched me, something in me broke.
He would be the death of me, but I couldn’t stop.

Her brothers brought me into their family. Gave me the one thing I needed more than anything else. Then they asked me to do something I wasn’t sure I could.

Take care of her.

She was trouble wrapped up in a gorgeous package, but I wanted to wrap her in my arms. Soothe her worries, calm her fears, show her what it felt like to let go.

The fire between us ignited. But as the walls burned down around me, I’d be forced to choose between the life I’d always known, and the love of my life.




The thing that normally makes me happy is the chance to read the second book from a series that I love.
It is exciting to receive a new book, knowing that the first one was intense.
Oh boy.
So many things that I loved and a lot of questions that I was left with.
Ellie Isaacson knows the perfect way to write a mafia book. Her writing is raw and wild, sassy, and dangerous with a touch of hotness.
The Boss is her latest release and it’s the second book from The Hitman series.
But I advise you to read The Hitman first. Do it and you’ll understand this new book better.
This new book explores the lives of Diesel and Natalia.
Diesel lost everything until Jet gave him a family. He’ll do everything to protect his family but he can’t take Natalia out of his head.
When he’s given the task to protect her…
Natalia is one tough cookie. She’s feisty and doesn’t take shi*** from anyone.
She loves her family intensely and will do everything she can to protect them. But when her brother “orders” her to stay put with the protection of Diesel…
Dayum… Just Dayum… What a book.
Perfect plot, well written, super engaging, and intense.
The entire book was wrapped in a cloud of darkness and mystery.
Each chapter made it impossible for me to put the book down. One minute things were in a way and they took a turn to the worst.
Scene after scene made me hooked and I couldn’t stop reading.
There were parts of the story that I wanted to slap someone silly. Jeez. Stubborn like hell.
But then there were others that I wanted to hold them tight and never let go.
These two had their demons to chance away and sometimes that was impossible to achieve.
Grey worked perfectly together despite the pain the shared.
This book not only has some raw scenes but also some hot stuff as well. Oh boy… Hot hot hot.
Now I’m curious about the next book.
Great book Ellie. You nailed it and it was great to see my questions being answered.
Can’t wait for the next book.
  I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

“Diesel?” My voice wavered between whisper and yell, and his head snapped up in surprise.
Blue the color of the bright spring sky sparked with life as those eyes took me in. The corners of his lips twitched into an almost-smile before he wiped it away with his fist. “Mornin’.” His voice was gruff, full of gravel and not enough sleep. The way it rasped out across his lips made my wobbly knees shake. “How’d ya sleep?”
My gaze dropped to the floor and I turned my face from his as I tucked a strand of hair behind my ear. “Umm, okay,” I said, telling him a partial lie. “And you?”
In answer, he rose from his chair, his long, lean body hovering over me. His eyes searched mine, darting back and forth as if by doing so he could find the truth. “Don’t believe you.”
“Excuse me?”
He gripped my chin between his thumb and finger, guiding my face to be aligned with his. “I. Don’t. Believe you.”
Scowling, I ripped my chin from his grasp. I spun on my heel and pulled open the fridge. “How would you know?”
The heat from his body followed me. Every hair on my head seemed to stand on end. With a hand on the door next to mine, he leaned in, his chest brushing my shoulder as he reached for the milk. “Heard you from my room,” he whispered against my ear, his lips brushing my lobe.
“Heard every scream and whimper. Took everything in me not to rush back to your side.”
“Why would you care?” I brushed him away, stepping far from his grasp. My gaze hit the
melting snow out the window as I stood at the kitchen sink.
Again, that heat followed me. Again, the hairs rose on my head. Like the days of old, Diesel’s hands came to rest on my hips. He pulled my ass into his body, and for one second a thrill raced through me at the thought that he would take me from behind.
Instead, he leaned down over my shoulder, those hands smoothing over my hips. “It’s my job to care.”
“You son of a—” My palm flew at his cheek and landed with a crack. His face flew to his right, that cheek blazing red. I pulled my palm to my open mouth and tried to stifle my gasp.
Those bright, bright eyes sparkled like gems as he turned them back my way. His nostrils
flared and he gave a single nod. Then, without warning, he scooped me up and set my ass on the counter with a thud. He pressed his way closer, those slim hips sliding between my legs,
those hard abs nudging against my core.
“Don’t need you to like me,” he whispered into the crook my neck as his nose trailed along my flesh. And God, a tingly sensation zinged down my skin, meeting up with his long, hard length where it prodded between my legs. I grasped him as he rocked into me, holding on to those strong shoulders, my legs tightening around him as my body lit up. “An’ I don’t need to like you. But we’re stuck together, so you best let it go. Got that, darlin’?”
