New Release and Review: Underboss by Kristen Proby


From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes an all new family in her With Me In Seattle world! Hold onto your seat as we introduce you to Kristen’s new MAFIA FAMILY!

As the eldest son of Seattle’s current mob boss, Carmine Martinelli’s life has never really been his own. But he doesn’t mind because his family means more to him than his life. Which is why he’s determined to make those responsible for the death of his aunt and uncle pay–in inventive and gruesome ways. And what better way to do that than to infiltrate the Russian mafia from the inside? It’s a good thing the bratva’s princess is stunning and seemingly willing to do whatever he asks. This vengeance could be the perfect mix of business and pleasure.

Nadia Tarenkov has several things stacked against her: she’s a woman, and she’s not the eldest child in her family. But it doesn’t matter. She has her sights set on ruling the syndicate, and she always gets what she wants. When the heir to one of the States’ most powerful crime families comes knocking, Nadia sees it for the gift it is. He thinks he has her fooled, but she’s smarter, more cunning, and always two steps ahead. She’ll beat the gorgeous mobster at his own game, and secure her place in the fold.

What neither of them takes into consideration, however, is that they aren’t the only ones with deadly plans in motion. To survive, they’ll have to come clean and work together–and acknowledge that the growing love they’ve been pretending isn’t there, is very real.


This is the first book in the new With Me in Seattle Mafia series, and what a great way to start.  If you are a fan of this author, this book is a bit darker than what you are used to, but it is just as good as all the other With Me books.  If you’ve never read a mafia romance book before, this is a good place to start.  It gives you a taste of the mafia world without being too dark or violent.  There are some violent moments, but these moments fit into the storyline very well.  Carmine and Nadia are an ultimate badass couple.  Both of these characters are strong and tenacious, and together they are sizzling.  This is a great suspenseful story with twists and turns that will have you hooked.  I really enjoyed this new world, and I can’t wait to read more about the brothers.
