Off the Record: A With Me in Seattle Mafia Novel by Kristen Proby is now live!

From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the thrilling conclusion to her With Me in Seattle Mafia series…

Rafe “Rocco” Martinelli was never one for the family business. Alas, being born into a crime syndicate means doing the family’s bidding and making sure you’re connected–and, yes, breaking a few kneecaps. Rafe would love nothing more than to hang up his enforcer apron and live a quiet life, but as more and more higher-ups in rival clans turn up dead, Rafe realizes he doesn’t have a choice. Especially not when the captivating and gorgeous bratva princess needs his help. Dr. Annika Tarenkov learned early on that her belongs to her family. She’s a pawn in the long game, a bargaining chip for power and prestige. She gave up the only person in her life she thought she could be happy with, all for the greater good of the family. Now, a newly made widow and desperately seeking answers, she’s forced to confront her past as it converges with her present. But all it does is make her wonder about her future and how she can make Rafe hers again. While being with him is like wrangling a toddler at times, he still makes her heart race and her breath catch. And she wouldn’t feel safer with anyone else. With the chips seemingly stacked against them, they must work to uncover the perpetrators of the nefarious plot that’s been brewing for some time–before it’s too late.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Off the Record is the third book in the With Me in Seattle Mafia series by Kristen Proby. You can read each book as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series since they are tied together by family and friends. Two of the Martinelli men have found their happily ever afters and now it’s time for Rocco aka Rafe to finally get his.
Rafe fell in love with Annika ten years ago while they were in college. Torn apart due to their families being enemies. They had to move on. Annika was married. Rocco works within the family business as a killer and a pilot. They have seen each other over the years but they had to avoid one another. That didn’t mean they forgot the way the other made them feel. Loved. Adored. Wanted. Desired. Safe. But they could never be…
Right? F*ck that. Annika was lived through hell over the last ten years and it was time to get her life back. But first, it was time to kick some ass, and take some names. With Rafe on her side. A man who never stopped loving her. But can she get over her insecurities of being damaged goods?
I ♥️them!! I have loved this whole series. These friends and family are protective, sweet, badass, swoony, and sexy. Annika’s badassness was unexpected from the woman I met in the first book. She is messing around. And Rafe…yum!! Such a romantic. *swoon*. The writing is addictive. There are definitely some twists I didn’t see coming and I love that!
He lifts his bag off the floor and follows me up the stairs. I can feel his eyes on my ass. He always did have a thing for my behind. “It’s just a butt, Rafe.”
“A grade-A one,” he agrees, his voice filled with a grin.
God, I missed flirting with him.
“They’re all going to pay,” Annika says and turns back to me. Her mind is made up. I’ve never seen her this…fierce.
It’s a fucking turn-on.
“A man should have to earn this, A. And I just have to say, if you were hot then, and you were, you’re beyond my wildest dreams now.”
