Friday #Teaser from Filthy Marcellos: Giovanni #ComingSoon
Giovanni's release is getting closer and closer. I'm excited to share the black sheep of the Marcello boys. This may be the last tease for him before his release day, so I hope you like it.

Giovanni Marcello lives life by his own terms and has no intention of changing. As a Capo and the son of a mob boss, he knows what is and is not acceptable conduct. That doesn’t stop him from doing whatever he wants, whenever he wants to do it. The one thing he would never do is disobey the principles of La Cosa Nostra. That is, until he spends a night with a beautiful stranger.

He’ll break every rule for her.

Kim Abella has made some mistakes—no doubt about it. She’s paying for them by a forced marriage she doesn’t want to a man who suffocates her with his demands and abuse. After everything, she knew better than to get mixed up with another family, especially their youngest son. Then again, when she’s with him, he reminds her of who she is beneath the control that’s slowly killing her.

She just can’t leave him alone.

Being spoken for by a made man means Kim is off-limits, but Giovanni doesn’t play nice when it comes to taking what should be his. The only thing that might save them both from a bullet and a makeshift grave for what they’ve done are the very same rules they already broke.

Sometimes, love has to start out a little filthy.

Gio pulled his rental car to a stop at the entrance steps to what he assumed was Kim’s dorm. Screeching tires echoed in the dark parking lot. Leaning over the seat, Gio pushed the passenger door open. A shocked Kim stood only inches away.
“Get in, Tesoro.”
Kim stared inside the car. Fear and uncertainty flickered in her stare. “What?”
“Get in the car. Hurry up.”
“I can’t—”
“If you’re worried about those two idiots Franco has following you, they took a detour into the Starbucks around the corner. Knowing the way it takes forever to get through a drive-thru, we’ve got about three minutes before they catch back up. Get in the damn car, Kim.”
The grip she had on her messenger bag tightened. Kim glanced around the parking lot, shifting from one foot to the other like she couldn’t make up her mind. Gio didn’t have time for her inner battles.
“Either get in or step back, Tesoro.”
Kim’s gaze narrowed as she surveyed him under the car’s roof light. “Are you high? Because that’s the only reason I could use to explain why you’re asking me to get in your car right now.”
“Not yet, but I plan on getting that way fast,” Gio answered.
Honesty was the best policy, after all.
Gio shrugged, adding, “Thought you might know somewhere to party.”
“Me?” Kim asked, a little too innocently.
“Is that sweetness act supposed to work on me? You forget that I’m the guy who spent hours shacked up with you in a hotel room and very little of that time was spent with us wearing clothes.”
Kim’s didn’t blink a lash at his crude attitude. “This is a bad idea.”
“You’re not an angel, Kim. I’m not asking you to be one. I just want you to get in my car and do something fun. If you think about it, you kind of owe me.”
“Tick, tock. How much time do you think you’ve got before Franco’s idiots come pulling into this lot and see you chatting with someone in a dark car? I’d be willing to bet when he hears that, you’ll be subjected to another one of his spiels like earlier.”
Kim’s jaw clenched. Yeah, Gio hit the mark with that one.
“Get in,” Gio demanded.
“Do something fun, huh?”
“That’s all. Get you away from whatever craziness he’s put inside your head for a night. When you say it’s done, it’s over. I’ll get you back here and no one will know a thing about it.”
“They can’t see me come back, Giovanni.”
“They won’t.”

Kim tossed her messenger bag into the car and climbed in without a single look back.
