~Book Review~ “Straight, No Chaser” by Nikki Belaire


Nikki Belaire’s Straight, No Chaser is the perfect Mafia romance.

Luciano Ellison, mob boss and playboy, finds himself responsible for the family business and a 4 year old brother once his father and step mother are killed.  Knowing he can’t care for Eli himself and run the city, he hires a nanny for the child.

Molly is everything that Luc is not.  Finishing her college degree, Molly is young and innocent and loves Eli unconditionally, providing the little boy with the feelings of stability and love missing in his life since his mother died.

Deciding that Molly is exactly what both he and Eli need in their lives permanently, Luc manipulates circumstances so that Molly has no choice but to turn to him for help.  Sparks fly, but is it enough to make this relationship happen?

Can Luc change his ways and make room in his heart for a woman?  What happens if Molly discovers just exactly who Luciano really is?  Can Luc keep everyone safe while running the city’s mafia?

Straight, No Chaser is a great mafia love story bringing together two people from completely opposite ends of the spectrum.  Nikki Belaire’s characters are well developed.  I enjoyed watching Luc learn to change his bad boy ways while still maintaining his rule as mob boss.  Molly, while young and innocent possesses a great inner strength and her unconditional love for Eli shines.  And, Eli is adorable and will steal the hearts of anyone reading this book!  The plot is enjoyable, and there are a few unexpected twists that readers will enjoy.

4.5 stars!


About the Book:

She’s an angel.

And, I’m going to f*cking love clipping her wings.


Luciano Ellison needs a wife.

Well, to be precise, his little brother Eli needs a mother.

The innocent new nanny, Molly, would be perfect. For both of them. Easily filling Eli’s life with unconditional love during the day and Luc’s bed with pure pleasure at night.

Rich, handsome, and oh so willing to claim her as his own, Luc orchestrates a scheme that leaves her desperate for his help. And willing to accept his self-serving conditions.

This smug bastard thinks he’s created a flawless plan, except…

He’s a mob king.

She’s terrified of him.

And, neither of them can survive without the other.


About the Author:

Nikki writes contemporary romantic thrillers and admits to a weakness for alpha males and bad boys, especially ones who can’t live without the strong women they love.

She spends more time in her characters’ lives than her own. But, when she’s in the real world, her passions include reading, wine appreciating, running, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
