    An epic story about ambition, determination, betrayal, and love. I savored every page.

    If (like me) you were intrigued by Oren in the Infidelity series, this is the book for you. It's a true stand-alone, because it's Oren's story. It focuses on how he became the man he was in Infidelity.

    It's about Oren and Angelina (Nox's mom), and the life that led to the beginning of Betrayal. It's intense, mafia, thrilling--like all of Aleatha's books. The heart of the book is Oren's love of Angelina and his

    It's about Oren and Angelina (Nox's mom), and the life that led to the beginning of Betrayal. It's intense, mafia, thrilling--like all of Aleatha's books. The heart of the book is Oren's love of Angelina and his family. (Of course, a young Nox makes a cameo.)

    Fantastically written, excellently told--don't miss this FIVE STAR masterpiece!!!

    There is something about mafia stories that I just love and this story was perfect. A story and world where Respect and Honor dominate. Where following orders, obeying the boss and being part of a family Rule. While Love is passionate and all encompassing, the life of Cosa Nostra is first and foremost and can begin to smother the love.

    There is something about mafia stories that I just love and this story was perfect. A story and world where Respect and Honor dominate. Where following orders, obeying the boss and being part of a family Rule. While Love is passionate and all encompassing, the life of Cosa Nostra is first and foremost and can begin to smother the love.

    Oren Demitri.....Driven, Handsome, Intelligent and Respectful. He worked hard to be more than his father. To make something out of nothing. He was an outsider until he fell in love with an insider. Angelina Costello, the niece of the Boss, Carmine Costello, of the Costello Family. To love Angelina, was to be included in the family which garnered respect, honor, and trust. But with all that, expectations came at a high price.

    This beautiful love story was filled with complications. Oren’s desires to make Demetri Enterprise successful, Oren’s desires to be respected and trusted by Carmine and his son, Vincent, and Oren’s desires to make Angelina safe, happy and loved. But with all these desires, some grew while others failed. Oren was only human and because he married into the Family, he had to work harder to show his allegiance. And working harder took time away from Angelina. But despite his time away with his business and the Family, Oren’s love for Angelina kept him going. But for Angelina, time away only created distance.

    Respect......the struggles of the Cosa Nostra, business and love......some succeed and others failed. The author brought intensity and passion to these struggles and created an intriguing story. The life of Oren Demetri, “The making of a man” with the joys and heartbreak was a compelling and moving read.

    In my years as a reviewer, in every month, I find a book with a deep and thought provoking story. These kinds of books hold a special plot that sinks you in and traps you. The kinds of books have characters that you want to pick apart and get to know the person inside. The person behind the tales. The person behind the mystery. Respect is certainly that book. When I saw this book, I did not know what this book was about. I went in blind and what a brilliant move I made. This book truly PERFECTIO

    In my years as a reviewer, in every month, I find a book with a deep and thought provoking story. These kinds of books hold a special plot that sinks you in and traps you. The kinds of books have characters that you want to pick apart and get to know the person inside. The person behind the tales. The person behind the mystery. Respect is certainly that book. When I saw this book, I did not know what this book was about. I went in blind and what a brilliant move I made. This book truly PERFECTION. Simply GLORIOUS. Every word, every sentence, every paragraph and every chapter was a hit on the nail straight to my heart. Aleatha Romig wrote a book that will grab you and shake you tot he core. She wrote a book with a changing and resplendent plot that captivated me. Aleatha defintiely gave her A game and wrote a book with such an evolving and masterly vibe that will make you captive. I LOVED it. I MARVELED at it. I simply let it TAKE me.

    Respect is not a romance but a love story through out decades of one man. A love story that will hurt. A love story that will make you cry. A love story that will make your heart ache. Respect was a powerful tale of one man's life story. Rippling. Riveting. Striking. Opulent. Regal. Respect told a layered and intriguing plot of the inner making of a man. It will pull you in. It will demand your attention. I simply devoured this book. I only slept, ate and drank Respect. Not only was it a story about the mystery of Oren Demetri but it was about respect. Respect for his family. Respect for his business. Yes, it had romantic elements and mafia elements but it explored the grandeur and stature of one man's empire. I was in awe. Aleatha Romig gave me a sophisticated and intricate read about Oren Demetri's legacy filled with danger, drama, suspense, emotion and heart ache. You will dig deep into a spectacular and mesmerizing story. Respect is truly special.

    Respect is a standalone read that will take you to a reading journey you will not forget. A definite must read. I highly recommend it.

    Respect is a book that I have been waiting for, Oren Demetri, was a man who ghosted the Infidelity series which his power and dominance. There was something about him that intrigued me every time he graced the pages, after all it’s not every day the hero’s father steals the spotlight even for a moment.

    Respect is Oren’s story, how he made his way from nothing and into a man respected! Powerful, suspenseful, a mysterious epic love story of a man who wants it all, and willing to risk everything to get it. The making of man, is Oren’s reflection of his life, and it was every bit of Aleatha as it could get in the very best of ways. Truly a gem to treasure, for Oren is like fine wine, aged to perfection.

    While this is part of the Infidelity series, it can be read as a stand-alone. His story is definitely one worth living, especially if you want to understand the man beneath the power and respect.

    If you’ve read Romig’s

    series, you’ve met Oren Demetri. You know him as Nox’s father. I was so excited to read Oren’s story and interested to hear about his past.

    Oren Demetri made many choices in his life. They made him the man he is today. Some of those choices were good, some were poor, but they were all his. He owned them. Oren grew up needing respect. It was the most important thing to him. Then he met Angelina Costello and fell in love. His pri

    If you’ve read Romig’s

    series, you’ve met Oren Demetri. You know him as Nox’s father. I was so excited to read Oren’s story and interested to hear about his past.

    Oren Demetri made many choices in his life. They made him the man he is today. Some of those choices were good, some were poor, but they were all his. He owned them. Oren grew up needing respect. It was the most important thing to him. Then he met Angelina Costello and fell in love. His priorities changed for a while. Angelina was born into a mafia family and marrying her makes Oren part of that family. I would love to say Oren continued to make the right choices in his life, but he is human and he didn’t always do the best thing…

    Oren struggles with his choices. He struggles with doing the right thing. He’s successful in business, but with that, his personal life and family life start to fall apart. Was it worth it in the end? I’d like to say no. I think if Oren could change a lot of those choices he made, he would.

    I did enjoy this story for the most part. Romig’s writing is fantastic as always and the story was strong. I guess there were just a few things that made me lose, well… respect for Oren. I’m not sure how I felt about how the last bit of the story played out, and even though I knew how the story would end, it broke my heart.

    Overall, I did enjoy this book. It was a solid read. For fans of the

    series like me, it was great to see a young Nox and watch him grow up. Angelina was by far my favorite character in the book. One thing I always love about an Aleatha book is that it captivates me from the start. This book did that. Even though there were parts where Oren didn’t live up to the man I thought he would be, I feel that he turned it around by the end. I recommend this to all that loved the Infidelity series, and if you haven’t read them yet- this would make a great prequel!

    *******************

    Angelina’s gaze met mine through the lace veil. Her splendor was beyond my comprehension. Her beauty went beyond the surface. Yes, the surface was utterly stunning, yet it paled in comparison to her heart and soul. Deep within, she was perfection.

    Venus and Aphrodite were but mythical goddesses in lore.

    Angelina was my goddess of love and beauty. Standing in front of her family, friends, and associates, I willingly surrendered my all to her. Without a doubt, I’d been lost to her since the day we met, her existence affecting me like no other had or would.

    Star-crossed lovers?

    I didn’t believe it could be possible. Our destiny was together. It had taken too long to make it to this pinnacle. We were meant to be—forever. I knew that with every molecule within my body and soul.

    The organ’s music rang through the large pipes, vibrating through the air and rattling the old altar. I continued to grip my own hands, unable to take my eyes off of her, the white dress, veil, and bouquet in her grasp. She was the epitome of a blushing bride. Even beneath the lace, her gorgeous face with rosy cheeks shone through, not to be outdone but rather complemented by her piercing blue eyes and radiant smile.

    Was that a tear glistening upon her cheek?

    With each step Angelina and Carmine took toward me, I fought my own ongoing battle. The way Angelina’s gaze stared into my own, as if telling me without words that she deemed me worthy of her love and adoration. I wanted it to be. But how does one become worthy of his life’s desire?

    She and Carmine came to a stop beside me. I cleared my throat as we all turned to the priest.

    “Dearly beloved...”

    Maybe it gets incredible after 35%. Maybe I'm defective. Maybe I'm missing out on something truly extraordinary, but if I'm not invested by the 35% mark...

    I'm not even sure if this book can be categorized as a romance. It struck me as more focused on Oren making a name for himself within NYC's Cosa Nostra in the 80s.

    He's a low level mobster who falls for Angelina, the niece of Carmine Costello, head of the family. He has to prove himself. Blah, blah, blah. She's butthurt because he's never around due to his ladder climbing/ass-kissing. Blah, blah, blah. They have a big wedding. They have a baby. He feels bad because he's never there for her. Blah, blah, blah. People get popped. There's money laundering. Oren's

    worried for the safety of his Angel...

    Maybe if I'd been anticipating a mob story things would've worked out better but I was laboring under the impression this was a romance. The romance was a little too mundane and subdued for my tastes and the pacing is glacial.

    My record with slice of life is hit or miss and this was definitely in the latter category, so bear that in mind if you're considering it. There's nothing wrong with Romig's writing; it's more the story arch that doesn't suit me. As always my opinions are my own and YMMV.
