I love a good mafia romance so today I’m giving you some of my favorite mafia romance book recommendations. Now mafia romance typically falls under dark romance which means there are likely darker topics, violence, and scenes that may be triggering. As usual, please check all trigger warnings before reading.
Some of these recommendations are unfinished series, some are standalones in a series and I will make sure to identify which ones are which. Additionally, some of the books are why choose romances and since that isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, I will be identifying them as well.
