"No loose ends. It's the Bovaro family motto. As part of the Bovaro clan, one of the most powerful and respected families in organized crime, Jonathan knows what he must do: take out Melody Grace McCartney, the woman whose testimony can lock up his father and disgrace his entire family. The only problem: he can't bring himself to do it. Had Jonathan kept his silence, Melody and her parents would never have been identified and lured into the Witness Protection Program, able to run but never to hide. So he keeps her safe the only way he knows how-by vowing to clean up his own mess while acting as her shield. But as he watches her take on another new identity in yet another new town, becoming a beautiful but broken woman, Jonathan can't get her out of his mind...or his heart. From the streets of Little Italy to a refuge that promises a fresh start, Jonathan will be forced to choose between the life he's always known, the destiny his family has carved out for him, and a future unlike anything he's ever imagined."--Dust jacket.

The story of Melody & Johathan continues, This time told my Jonathan . A love story from both sides. ( a good twist ) David Cristofano has a gift for telling a story. He's one to watch. His first two novels were so enjoyable , I'm looking forward to the next one.

This book is a fun and fantastic read. The story is told in a way that is refreshing and unique. I really enjoyed the author's style. I've never been interested in mob stories, but the main character in this book presents life on the inside of mob culture from a vastly different perspective. He was born into a violent and brutal family legacy - but never fits in or can fully identify with it. As a young boy he witnesses an event that catapults him onto a journey toward breaking free from that legacy. It's a hopeful and romantic tale...that I am glad I took a chance on reading.
