Powerful Deception by Jocelyne Soto


Love in Blood and Lies.

The world that we live in is a very dark place. Everywhere you look there is blood looming. There are powerful individuals waiting for you to take your last breath. Powerful individuals that would strap you to a chair and let you suffer.

It’s those powerful men and women that took my father from me, the ones I’m going after. Starting with Dante Rossetti. He called the hit that took the most meaningful person in my life down. I will take him down, watch every inch of his life burn to a crisp, even if I have to pretend to be someone else entirely and lie my way into his life. 

I will destroy the man that everyone calls the devil and he won’t see a thing that is coming his way. 


Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for Powerful Deception, a woman set on revenge for the dangerous man who brutally murdered her father. 

Arianna Vitale discovered her murdered father in his home and her mission is to find the despicable man who killed him. Her research leads her to a very lethal man, a Chicago crime boss who is looking for a nanny for his two young children. Let the betrayal begin.

Dante “The Devil” Rosetti will be the first to tell you that he doesn’t deserve to live. It’s clear he has done some awful things in his life and had no choice but to take over the family business. However, he loves his children and they come first in his life. Enter a woman who is not who she seems. She proves that she loves his children, but what is she hiding?

I love the idea of a woman out for revenge. Especially when the target is handsome, dangerous, and a devoted father. Arianna gets trapped in her lies as she falls for Dante and his children. It’s refreshing to see a crime boss who is not only ruthless with his business but charming and devoted to his adorable children. Dante is also a vulnerable man who still mourns the loss of his wife in a devastating car accident and feels guilty for his attraction to Arianna. Granted he had every right to be suspicious of Arianna, but their chemistry is off the charts and her tenderness with his children is the most genuine thing about her as she digs herself deeper into her own lies and in the beginning trusts the wrong people to help her. When Arianna falls for Dante and his family and realizes her mistake, it’s almost too late ending with a gripping finale and a happily ever after.

Dante’s children are lovely. Four-year-old Alessandra with her scars and muteness as a result of her mother’s car accident and baby Angel is so precious with his smiles and giggles. My favorite part is when he learns to walk and Arianna’s excitement in sharing the moment with Dante.

I loved this romantic suspense filled with betrayal, revenge, and falling in love. The dynamics of the characters are so intense because of the secrets and the attraction between them. I recommend you give this book a try.

Thank you to Ms. Soto for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
