One night. That's all Maddalena Bazzoli has left before family duty kicks in. Tomorrow, she'll be a committed woman, so tonight? Tonight she's getting lucky and throwing caution to the wind.


Review Lucky

“I’m getting married to a man I don’t love.”

“I’m not supposed to. It’s not about love. Doesn’t matter how I feel about it.”

Ah, holy hell! That ended way too soon! I LOVED this short story. J.M. Darhower, whom I have labeled the “Queen of Mafia Books”, is back again with prequel to a new romantic suspense ‘Twenty to Life’ that is sure to be a hit.

Maddalena Bazzoli is the only daughter of notorious mob boss Camillo Bazzoli, and has been “ordered” into an arranged marriage with a man she does not know, as part of a business deal between her father and another family.

“I’m a pawn. I’m a bargaining chip.”

On her last night as a single woman, she wants one last night, one more chance to experience freedom before it is taken away. Armed with her fake ID, she is intent on living it up when “Lucky” sidles up next to her at the bar. Conversation flows, but not as quickly as the alcohol, and the two discover they are both in need of an escape.

Lucky takes “Diamond” back to his apartment where sparks fly and they lose themselves in each other. Using each other to forget. If even just for one night.

“In another life, maybe this could’ve meant something.”

This prequel will whet your appetite, leaving you to CRAVE for more.


About J. M. Darhower

J.M. Darhower is the USA Today bestselling author of books about the hottest hitmen and the women who find some hope in them. She lives in a tiny town in rural North Carolina, where she churns out more words than will ever see the light of day. She has a deep passion for politics and speaking out against human trafficking, and when she isn’t writing (or fangirling) she’s usually ranting about those things. Chronic crimper with a vulgar mouth, she admits to having a Twitter addiction. You can usually find her there.
