Don't Blink... You Might Miss Something.

Joe Castaletta has been running the underbelly of Chicago for decades, but it's now time to turn over the keys to the kingdom. His right hand man, Demetri DeMarco is more than ready to race forward into a new way of doing old school. With Joe's sexy daughter as his enforcer and a gang of mobsters to keep things running smoothly, he's confident, collected and a bastard and a half.

<b>The only thing that's just out of his reach is the one thing he wants most... Izabella.</b>

**If you've read Judged (Ali Parker), this is Drake DeMarco's older brother. If you've read her Bad Money Series... you should recognize Marcus, who joins the crew in this first novel.

The first novel in a long running series. A cliffhanger is possible, though each book is intended to focus on a different part of the Castaletta syndicate structure.

    Great to see D and Izzys chemistry, if only they could see they belong together like everyone else can. Hopefully, they figure out who the rat is. Great book.

    Monsters, murder, betrayal, and love are a great combination. The story of Izabel and Dimitri and the life of a mobster leaves you wanting more! Can't wait for the story to continue.

    Gritty, honest. I loved this book. The suspense keeps you on edge in a good way. I couldn't stop reading and I can't wait to read the next book to see what happens. Izzy and Demetri are so blunt. I absolutely love them. The story with the whole family is detailed. Not like some books you read and you have questions about certain things happening or what's going to happen that never get answered. By far the best that I've read so far from Ali.

    This book is exactly what I was hoping for after reading the Bad Money Series! You feel like you get a first hand look into the Mafia lifestyle. Loved it and can't wait for the next book in the series!

    If you have read the Bad Money book and loved it, this is another book for you. You meet D and Izzy in bad money but now you get to know about their story,vans I can't wait for the other book to come out so I can find out how it continues. I can't give it a full 5 stars because of a few typos (just my standards) . This book will not disappoint you! I can't wait to see how Joe takes the news when the rat is discovered....

    They should let you know it's a cliffhanger even though it was a good one. Liked the way it's written and the story really pulls you in but nothing really happens between the H&h and pisses me off.
  • Fantastic

    I didn't know what to expect when I first decided to read this book, but I couldn't put it down! Ali does an amazing job of pulling a reader in and hooking them. I am obsessed with izabella and Demetri, and am cheering for them to just admit they love each other. It truly did play out like a movie in my head, and at times I wish that if they ever decide to make a film I could be Izzy. She's such a strong female character, and there are very few of them, especially in male driven worlds. I can't wait to read the next one!

    Ali Parker has done it again!!! Her books have had a great impact on me. The characters in her books are always ones that I can visualize in their daily life really existing in real life. Take Me Higher is told from both Izabella's and Demetri's points of view. There is an undeniable attraction between these two characters but the way they act towards each other will make you want to lock them in a room together and never let them out. You get to see them when they are most vulnerable and you can see just how much these two really need and want each other. This is the first book in this mob romance series and I am looking forward to finding out if everything works out and Izabella and Demetri get their happy ever after ending. I received this book in exchange for a fair honest review.

    I was first introduced to these characters in Justified. I love the struggle between Izzy and D! If you like stories with strong characters then this is the book for you! I can't wait to see how their relationship evolves while dealing with all of the obstacles and drama in their lives! Great read!
