DeLuca Duet, Part Two 

The Chicago Mob is the same as it has always been—violent, greedy, and excessive. The Outfit families have turned their backs when they were needed the most one too many times, but Dino DeLuca didn’t expect anything different. His whole life has been lived for the Outfit—for his family. He has a whole new set of reasons to live and fight now. Karen Martin makes Dino change all the rules. He’s finally ready to show everyone just how much waste is truly worth in the mafia, and just how far one will go for freedom from it all. He’s learned these lessons well. Too well. 

Author’s Note: The DeLuca Duet is a standalone duet with a HEA ending that can be read independently.

My Review 

Worth of Waste was the conclusion to a series that hooked my from the start. I've followed Dino's story since the first book of The Chicago War series and as I've devoured this duet. I've learned so much more about Dino, his family and his life. With surprises, events explained and a love story that defies barriers, this is a mafia family I've fallen in love with. 

Dino and Karen have a lot of overcome. Starting where book 1 ended, Worth of Waste picks up with Dino and jail and Karen trying her best to move forward with her life and her new baby. As time moves forward, Karen realizes exactly who she's fallen in love with and Dino makes plans to give Karen all that she deserves. But with infighting becoming an everyday occurrence and war on the horizon, Dino has decisions to make that will effect every person in his life. 

I loved getting deep into Dino's head. I loved that I got to see events transpire from the original series but that were written in a way that made sense with this story as a standalone. I loved Dino and Karen and their love story. It may not have been quite as heart stopping a conclusion as The Chicago War series but seeing as that is one of my most favorite books ever, it was going to be nearly impossible to top. But this was a fabulous extension and I enjoyed every minute.

DeLuca Duet, Part One 

Ask anyone and they will all say the same thing about just who Dino DeLuca is. A criminal, the son of a traitor, and a mafia Capo who can’t be trusted. His past has shaped his life, creating demons he can’t escape from that live in his mind day and night. He is all too aware of just how people see him. Closed off. Cold. Different. He doesn’t care—keeping people out means no one can get close enough to hurt him again, and he already has one too many monsters with their claws stuck in his back that he’s still fighting off. His walls are so high, no one is climbing over them. Or so he thinks … Karen came into his life like a spring shower, her light shining through the darkness and making him see something other than the hell that surrounded him for so long. She doesn’t know who he is or what he has done to become the man he is today. If he can help it, she’ll never know, and his monsters will never hurt her. She sees his differences as beauty. She never asks for more. She is perfect. The problem with happiness for Dino DeLuca is that his monsters don’t mind taking away what makes him happy. After all, what isn’t given cannot be kept. These lessons will be the hardest he has ever learned. 

AUTHOR’S NOTE: The DeLuca Duet is a two book tale following the same couple through their journey. It is a standalone Duet that can be read independently with a HEA ending.
