Memoirs of a Mobster Reviews
This is the third novel of Judy Serrano's I have read, but the first in the Easter's Lily series. Memoirs of a Mobster, is book four of this series. Although I haven't read the previous three, I was able to get the backstory from this gifted storyteller. This is one of many talents Judy possesses as a writer.Diego Junior is the head of the Montiago organization and is groomed to run the largest criminal organization in the United States and Mexico by his uncle. When a new love enters his life, he decides to give up his playboy lifestyle to marry her and her unborn child. The only problem is his father, who is kingpin of a rival organization threatens everything and everyone Junior cares about. Old enemies reemerge as they begin to face off. Junior will be tested by his friends and enemies as he struggles to choose his allegiance. Not all is what it appears and he must decide whom he can trust. Just when the reader feels they have a handle on what's happening, Judy throws a curveball. As the reader gets to the end of the story a bombshell is dropped causing leaving you breathless.One of the best talents Judy has as a writer is her ability to throw in many characters without confusing the reader. This is a rare gift. Throw in her gift at storytelling, mix it with drama and add some mystery and you end up with a rollercoaster thrill ride that will leave you breathless...
I have loved every book from Judy Serrano’s Lilly series and book number 4 Memoirs of a Mobster was everything I hoped it would be. This time the story was told my Deigo Montiago (Junior) Lilly’s first born son who is now a grown man. There were lots of twists and turns to the book which is what I loved with all of the books in the series. All of the favourites are still in the book, Deigo Snr, Max, Hector, Lilly of course and Diego Jnr married pregnant Contessa first to protect her from his father Johnny but he falls in love with her almost instantly and when Johnny is killed Nico takes over. Nico is Diego Jnr’s cousin but he is a loaded weapon. Things get crazier and crazier Nico wants Tess. Deigo Snr and Lilly marry and head off for their honeymoon leaving Deigo Jnr, Hector who reappears after being shot in the head all those years ago and Max who also was “killed” turns up. Its all so crazy but so believable.I loved everything about the book. Even though it was years after the first four books I got into it straight away. It told of what happened between book four when Deigo was 15 to now a 30 year old. I couldn’t get enough of it. It was very well written and I cannot wait for the next installment that I think again will blow me away.The series would definitely make a great film and I would be one of the first to watch it.
Consider me a hardcore and dedicated fan of Judy Serrano. So far, every book published in this series has yet to disappoint and in fact, left me gasping, shocked, and breathless. Serrano knows how to deliver a storyline that is so gripping, it'll leave you desperate for more.Memoirs of a Mobster is the fourth novel in this series and has switched to Juniors perspective. Truth be told, this had me a bit worried. I wasn't sure how I would like the story through the eyes of a man. I loved Lilly and she had an amazing story. I ended up falling for this novel just like the rest, leaving me to once again endlessly praise this wonderfully talented author. We learn that Diego Jr. has been dealt a bit of a hard road with the ladies. One in particular really broke him up, which has left him with the decision to toss them aside when necessary. It's when a debt needs paid that Junior ends up getting married. It just so happens that the woman he marries catches his heart as well. But things never run smoothly for the Montiago's. Never.Old flames decide to make themselves known, causing far more trouble than what it's worth, and unexpected people from the past return that were thought to be forgotten. Lilly is still in for grief and surprises just like always, and the Montiago family is still full of love and chaos.
I absolutely love this series. I was eager to read this book. I knew it was going to be good when very early into the book I though to myself "omg no it can't be!" and a lot of "oh no he didn't!".This book has so many twists and turns it could be its own soap opera. Actually, I'd love to see this series turned into a movie or tv show. It's seriously that good.This book is more about Junior or Deigo (depending on who is talking about him). He is an adult now and obviously his untraditional upbringing has had its toll on him. I loved to read about the man he had become.This author is the only one I know of that can write a story full of mobsters and violence and yet have undying love so evenly balanced through the whole story.I always find myself staying up late to finish the book I'm currently reading in the series to see who ends up dead, and who wins the girl.Good thing the Montiago boys are ficitional characters are there would be a lot more broken hearts in the world.
