Gian, (Trassato Crime Family #1) by Lisa Cardiff. +Giveaway & ARC Review.

Author: Lisa Cardiff
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 28, 2016

I only ever had one dream—my name in bright lights for the world to see. And I had a plan to make it all happen.
Move to New York. Find an agent. Work hard. Then with a little luck mixed in with some natural talent, I’d be a Broadway star.
One devastating injury and a broken engagement later, I have nothing to show for my life except an empty bank account and a jaded heart.Desperate to salvage my dreams, I agree to interview for a job with my best friend’s brother, Gian Trassato.
Gian is charming. He’s magnetic. He’s connected to the Trassato Crime Family, and everything I should stay away from, but I don’t have a choice. I need the job. 
Just when I thought I was about to get my life and career back on track, I make one thoughtless mistake. I go back to the club to pick up my purse and witness something Gian’s enemies would kill to keep secret.
Now I’m being sucked deeper and deeper into a terrifying world I don’t understand…
Friends and enemies are interchangeable. Honor and family are everything. And the scariest part of all…I might actually be getting lost in Gian.

Evangeline Jeffers is at an all time low. She is a dancer with an injury that will probably end her career, and now she has caught her fiancé cheating on her. Two bottles of his expensive wine later and her decision is made. A new life needs to start with a job. Her best friend sets her up with an interview,  That leads her to something that will change everything for her. Something she should never have seen may cost her life. 
Gian Trassato is part of the Italian Mafia, and a man whore. Doing a favour for his sister involves an innocent in family business.  He must try and keep her safe the only way he can. Who is it that is more threatening to her ? His Mafia family or him ?
Lots of danger and excitement in this story with a sexy love story to go with it. Our hero must learn he can't always get what he wants. Our heroine has to learn a deeply buried family secret.  We have some great characters that will be more involved in the next book. I loved this and can't wait to read the next.

"Sexy. Gritty. Passionate. Intense. Gian is going to rock your world."
"I really liked this book. Clubs, Mobsters, drive-bys oh my!"
I wanted to spend the night getting lost in this woman. I wanted to kiss her. Taste her. Adore her. I wanted to put the past and the future in a sealed box and pretend it didn’t exist for a few hours. I should walk out this door right now, but the longer I looked at her, the more my logic crumbled. I leaned forward, my lips only a whisper away from hers. My brain cells scrambled. I smelled a hint of jasmine. I saw the tiny gold flecks in her otherwise dark irises. I counted the sprinkle of freckles on her nose. She had seven. It was my new favorite number. Fuck Tony. He could wait. “Evie,” I groaned, unable to resist any longer. She was the forbidden fruit, and I needed another taste of her brand of sin. I let my lips glide across hers. Once. Twice. Her eyes drifted closed, and a faint hum slipped through her full lips. “Gian, what the hell are we doing?” “I don’t know.” And I didn’t. This was madness.
After spending years practicing law and running a real estate development company with her husband, Lisa decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer and she must confess that inventing characters is so much more fun than writing contracts and legal briefs. A native of Colorado, she lives with her husband and three children in Denver.
