Char Reviews The Fallen Series!

I wanted to do something a little different this week for the store’s review post. I will not be reviewing one, not two, but four books! A series if I am being honest. The first book When She Unravels By Gabrielle Sands was recommended to me by one of our customers who happens to love dark romances. She is the reason we have some in the store. Anyway, this one caught my eye when she talked about it. Little did I know that it was part of a series.

I read this whole series in one weekend and I am not ashamed to admit that. These dark mafia romance books follow the Garzolo sisters and their marriages, with one exception of one De Rossi sister. Don’t worry it will make sense as to why she’s part of the group. Each book is about a new couple but be warned you will need to read them in order because each couple is included in every book, so if you read them out of order you will spoil some things for yourself. 

Each book has it’s own trope in it from enemies to lovers, unplanned pregnancy, age gap, and arranged marriage. I will also warn you that there are trigger warnings in the beginning of each book so please be aware of that. I really enjoyed each character’s story and everything that these girls had to face. Seriously, these girls are strong women! I know I say this all the time but I am a sucker for banter between the characters and I absolutely loved the characters. Each person is written beautifully. So I think these are worth the read.  Seriously though if you like dark mafia romances I really think you should give these a shot. I couldn’t put them down. Below I will have synopsis of each book like all my other reviews.

When She Unravels follows Valentina Garzolo. In the enemies to lovers Valentina has  been raised to be the perfect mafia wife. The only problem is her not so perfect husband.
