Old Flame Morelli Family #8Because you followed the author's explicit advice and read the Morelli series before jumping into Dante Colette's world you've got a pretty good idea of how the story startsYou know for example that Colette's struggling a bit with Dante's method of renewing their relationshipAnd all right all right you get where she's coming from But Dante deserves love tooYou don't know is how damn sweet Dante can be For instance when he remarks to himself on what he's been doing for Colette's shop during the slow months OMG I meltedAnd when Dante informs Colette of what's his and what he's allowed to do with itAND THEN HE DOES THE OVER THE HEART THINGObviously by this point you've made peace with the fact that if Colette doesn't want this crazy bastard you doAnd then when he asks her finally asks her to forgive himThis story shocked me with it's sweet Sure sure there was some brutal but nothing you fellow Morelli lovers would choose to stay up at night hashing over If a Morelli is going to cause you to lose sleep you'll make sure it's for a good reasonTHIS WAS SUCH A FABULOUS story for Dante I loved it And than ever if they wouldn't wreck the whole world MY whole world I'd like one of each Morelli brother please Now I have high hopes for Alec he's been so uiet and well behaved and easy going that it's time we watch him fall wildly in love and unlock that sleeper cell of insanity inside him ;D You've met the Morelli family now delve into the love story of Mateo's callous brother Dante Morelli Loving Dante was my original sin They warned me of the slippery slope the moral corruption the outright debasement of the Morelli family They warned me not to get involved Not to love himI didn’t listen I thought I would be his saving grace I was a foolOnce upon a time Dante Morelli was the source of my happiness the powerful embrace which would always keep me safe and lovedNow Dante Morelli is the source of every moment of pain every moment of grief every heart breaking moment of my young lifeOnce his love was my lifebloodNow his love is my prison Once I thought it might kill me to leave himNow I know he will never let me go Warnings Dark romance Bad guy hero This is a comprehensive series so you'll have a MUCH better time with Dante's story if you have read the entire Morelli family series first The author does NOT recommend trying to read this book as a standalone if you have not read the previous Morelli family series books The Morelli story begins in ACCIDENTAL WITNESS not Dante's book This series just keeps giving and giving In book 8 of the Morelli Family series we get a look at Dante Morelli and Colette Fontaine The first thing I feel that is important to know is that you have to read this series to fully get the amazing writing of the characters Sam has created “Old Flame” is cleverly written All the characters in the Morelli world intertwine and give us readers a book that is amazing shocking frustrating witty and romantic Sam has not disappointed in the journey of her characters in this series Dante and Colette love is strong but fragile It’s hard for Colette to love a mobster Can she love Dante unconditional Can she accept the morality of a infamous mobster Sam does not hold back in this story I highly recommend this book but to get to power and magic of Sam’s writing read all her books in this series 🖤🖤🖤🖤 Dante's probably my second favorite Morelli man Nobody can beat Mateo and I didn't expect that going into this book With that being said this was still a great story And there were a lot of interesting conversations in this novel about morality that really made me think Of course the scenes with Mateo and Mia were brilliant and made me add on extra star just cause I love them It was cool to see their dynamic from Dante's perspective since he has a deep hatred for Mia He likes the unemotional Mateo and doesn't like the power that Mia has over him reasonably enough Mateo really messes Dante up in this novel Can't say I didn't enjoy it a little bit Collette was a cool character Her self awareness and sweetness made her a really lovely protagonist I love that this whole family's stories are happening at the same time and I loved that this book showed all the ways they began to overlapTW Non con I dared to run away from the devil and start a life without him and now he's going to burn me for that unforgivable sin I CAN NOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS SERIES I CAN NOT GET ENOUGH OF THESE CHARACTERS I CAN NOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS AUTHORS WORDS The thing with Sam's writing is she aims to obliterate your sense of morality when it comes to the stories you read That black and white world that you live in She will push you into that gray area that resides in between She pushes you past your limits without you even realizing it which I LOVE that she can do this Because a true testament to her abilities to get me as a reader out of my own head She creates such a compelling book world that it is IMPOSSIBLE not to be consumed by it and love on the characters that would be scorned and loathed in other books because they would be deemed evil But us as readers LOVE them with her books Sam ALWAYS brings a uniueness that can only be reached by her words Sam never aims to blow rainbows and glitter up your arse with her stories She brings raw animalistic passion between her characters A tangible want and need within her characters that jumps off the page It's the rawest kind of love The kind of love that you would literally kill for And as a reader you will crave for Sam's lead male characters to tear down the world and everyone in their path to get to their one and only woman And you will want for her lead woman to get caught Captured by her man just as much as you the reader have been captured by their passion for their womanA man like Dante can't lose because he refuses to Whatever he has to do to win he'll do it If there's a line drawn to show how far is too far Dante will step over it like a meaningless crack in the pavement He won't bat an eye at doing things far worse than I could ever even imagine She did all these things I mentioned above with this story Dante and Colette each other's end game and their love is inevitable One thing I absolutely love and applaud Sam for is she stays true to her characters no matter how despicable or evil they can be She aims to bring us readers characters that will have us gasping with the audacity of the things that they say and doDante goes after what he wants especially when he's running on jealously I know his need to dominate takes over but I also know it doesn't mean he loves me any less It's pure animal instinct for him and it's one of the things I loved about Dante in its civilized forms One can't pick a brutish dominant man and then be shocked when he behaves like oneThere were several times while reading this book where I was thinking How the fk is Sam gonna pull this off Dante's just SO INTENSE He has no moral compass He's SO dark But then Sam would have me inevitably falling for the bad guy right along with the heroine That's talent right thereSam truly has me captive with her words and this book world I am drinking the koolaid like my life depends on it If you are interested in reading about the bad guys winning the girl then THIS is the series for youNOTE This story run parallel to the first 7 books in the series but in NO WAY is it a retelling Dante and Colette's story is very much their own It's the timeline that runs parallel but Dante and Colette were both minimally in the first 7 books I am ASTOUNDED by how well Sam executed this She literally had to weave Dante and Colette's story within the characters from the first 7 books and still stay true to THAT storycharacters It's like she created a world within a world and she did so masterfully If you haven't read the first books in this series STOP NOW You MUST read them in order to get the full experience with this book You will be left feeling confused at times because you will not have the knowledge from the first books and if that happens you will not enjoy this book Believe me Dante and Colette deserve your full cooperation winkyou will want to read ALL the books before OLD FLAME6 stars Oh Dante how I love thee ❤️❤️❤️Sam Mariano does a great job of bringing us back into the fold of the dangerous and captivating Morelli family This is Dante and Collette's story but the entire family is of course present while we navigate through their turbulent relationshipYes you absolutely need to start with Accidental Witness in order to enjoy this crazy ride Trust me when I say the journey in getting to know this mob family is one I'm so happy I took I love this series and I'm thrilled to have a piece of Dante in my heart Dante is a BAD man Total villain Wow Hot So good This fit in with the rest of the series seamlesslyAlso I’m on board with whatever Sam wants to do obviously Want to kill the fiancé and make the girl fall back in love with the killer Sure Let’s do it BUT I think planting some not nice things about dead fiancé would have made it easier for Collete Dante or Mateo should have thought of that Like make it seam like the dead fiancé had been cheating on her These Morelli's are bad men and Dante is no different but an extra dose of crazy comes out when they fall in loveI liked seeing of everyone and can't wait for Alec to have a story Mateo is the master manipulator This story was just missing that little bit of extra for me Other than the reason they were back together the story settled on what Colette's moral compass would do I thought there would be a bit drama thrown in maybe from Dante's insider or the housekeeper so I kept waiting for something that didn't happen Overall I really enjoyed being back in this world These are ALL really terrible people We're supposed to believe that what's her name is struggling with how terrible Dante is but she's not She already chose him She knew that being with another man would put him in danger and she did it anyway She doesn't even have enough guilt to care about that person or even kill herself for being a murderer She's just as much a psychopath as anyone else in this book It was all just foreplay for the lovely couple You do not need to read other books in the series because there's nothing THAT important to remember here They are related yes but it's an overestimation of the author's talentstory line that this book is incomplete without the others Most likely it's just marketing and simpletons pushing that narrative This book basically normalises and romanticises murder human trafficking female abuse abusive relationships etc etc etc It's not that it's dark that's the problem It's that it uses this type of content to cover up the fact that there is no real content This is the most basic cliched story line you can write in as basic a way as you can write it The violence is just shock factor Smoking Hot Addition to Morelli Family SagaGah OMG Sam Mariano wrote Dante and Colette so well in this crazy good story You will hate to like Dante but he was meant to be the way he is in this story Both Dante and Colette were complicated and abso freaking lutely perfect for each other Only they understood each other So many feels plenty of hot smexy moments and those jaw dropping twists that Sam Mariano wickedly weaves into her stories The Morelli Family series is one of the best mafia sagas ever
