    It's live on Amazon! http://www.amazon.com/Double-Blind-Vi...4.5 Suspenseful, Gritty Stars!Double Blind picks up right on the heels of High Stakes. Vincent is a capo within an Italian mafia family...the Vittaros. He's fallen in love with Adriana, preparations for their upcoming wedding coming along. He's forever conscious of the rival Rizzo mafia family. He's aware of their power struggles. A delicate balance of control while watching his back at the same time. This book is a rough one to review. I don't want to give too much away or spoil the ride. Double Blind was filled with everything mafia dark...it's gritty and violent. They live by their own codes. But when Adriana is dragged into their battles, Vince has to make decisions on what and who is most important to him. This book was much more action packed than the first. Their relationship is established, now the outside world taps on their door, threatening their happily ever after. I liked Vince's character. He's fallen in love yet the author stays true to his roots in all things illegal. He's dominating, a bit arrogant, yet unfailingly in love with Adriana. She's tough, knows who he is and accepts him...flaws and all. As I said, nothing is sugar coated. In fact, one scene I found so gruesome, I was a bit taken back (I may or may not have gagged a bit). This duet is definitely not for the light fluffy readers. I'd highly recommend it for those who like a bit of everything in their reads...dark, gritty, suspenseful, and let's not forget steamy.And I thank you. Advanced copy received by author in exchange for an honest review.

    Wow... Just wow! GREAT STORY!! This second book blew me away. I was not expecting this (the whole breaking up and attaching to another man thing), and was so pleasantly surprised to love it! You get it from three PoVs. Adriana, Vincent, and Carmine's. The sex scenes were hot, but few, which aloud for a lot of story development. I really appreciated that. Adriana and Vincent have hot chemistry. I loved being inside Carmine's head too... Thanks for that!! Oh Vanessa, you wicked imaginative minx... This was an absolute page turner for me. Started off slow as the story was setting itself up, but once you get into the meat of it it was so good. A few grammatical errors that I know people are going to boo hoo over, but they don't detract from the story at all in my opinion. I did receive an arc for an honest review, and this is my honest opinion. Vanessa can tell an amazing story!!! Sighhhh... More please.

    Words can't express the feelings I had in this book. But I felt everything Vince and Ade went through. This book was simply put Fanfuckingtastic. Sorry. It was so captivating and I could not put it down. It tied up the questions in the first book so well. And Vanessa, you have a wonderful psycho mind and I love it.I am not giving any hints just this...if you read the first, you must read this book as well. You will be so happy you did.

    I was given an ARC copy of this book for a fair review and let me just tell you this book blew me away! The first book left me wanting so much more and after reading this book I was completely happy :) a lot of times I will read something and when I am done there is just something that was missing and with this book it was right on point!

    One of the books I bought waaaay back, and it just didn't get read. No reason, I wanted to read it, but other books pushed it aside. I finally say down and said enough, and put it on the list for next. Now, 2 more books came along and tried to bump, but while i wavered, I stayed strong - glad I finally, finally, got there!This was great! There is action, smexy, emotion, and two beautiful people who are so committed to each other, they would do anything for the other. All that had me settling in for a read, and quickly devouring the book in a single sitting without a single breakNow, I'm thinking I need to get back and unearth some of the others buried in my TBR.....

    Double Blind (Vittorio Crime Family #2)By: Vanessa Waltz5/5 starsSo when I read the blurb for this book, I was somewhat upset that Vince and Adriana weren’t going to get to be together because of the two heads of the crime families playing with their lives for their own benefit. I wanted to kick both Tony Rizzo & Jack Vittorio. I know that Jack was trying to keep peace between the families, but still, I wasn’t so sure of his reasoning.Tony Rizzo needs someone to get close to Carmine and see if he is double crossing his family. Tony knows that Carmine has a thing for Adriana and that she is really the only person who could do this job. Jack gives in and agrees with Tony even though it is somewhat reluctantly. It almost seemed like a token disagreement just so Adriana wouldn’t tell Vince what was going on. I also thought this made Jack seem like he was weak since he was just going along with it.I felt horribly for Vince. Adriana breaking up with him and ending the engagement almost pushed him over the edge and he was in so much pain. Then to add to that, the other captains and the rest of the family knows what an insult it is to lose your woman, but then it’s just salt in the wound to lose your woman to another mobster in a rival family.Carmine has some screws loose in his head, but at first he can hide his problems really well. I really did feel bad for Carmine because he’s someone, who had an awful childhood that ruined him and which still causes him problems even though he’s in his 30s. You just know that if he had someone who loved him as deeply and intensely as he loved her, he could be healed from most of his past scars. But currently, there is just too much craziness clogging his mind.I’m glad that we got to see all 3 POVs from Adriana, Vince and Carmine. I think that is what really helped make this a 5 star book, when I wasn’t so sure about it because of the blurb. I was also worried about how this would be carried out and if it would end up being a love triangle. Thankfully, it wasn’t a love triangle (because those aren’t my type of books) but you couldn’t help but feel for a three of the main characters.We do learn more about Adriana’s past in this book and more about her mother. Yes her crazy mom is still around, though she doesn’t get to cause any problems if she wants to live. She does & she takes the threats seriously since she tried to set-up Vince to be killed by the Rizzo family. This is the conclusion to Vince & Ade’s story, but they do make appearances in the third book.

    5 'Crazie good' Stars!!! I'll admit while I was super excited for this sequel to Adriana and Vince's story, I did have some trepidation going into it. Like most sequels, Im always hoping they will continue to wield that magical power and keep me as intrigued as I was with the first book. I'm happy to say that Ms. Waltz did not disappoint! I was along for the intriguing thrill ride all the way to the end! Adriana thinks she and Vince have cleared the way and only have the future to look forward to now. But Vince knows differently. He knows the war with the rival family, the Rizzos can't carry on and they need to find a way to make peace. Only he doesn't realize it may cost him his future. When Adriana is approached by the Rizzos she has a choice to make. Work for them or risk both her mother and Vince's mother being killed. Oh and one other small detail.....break off the engagement with Vince and break his heart first. Yikes!! This is one of the best mafia romance stories I've read in a long time. It definitely left all the 'cheesiness' and stereotypes at the door. Even though it can be dark and sometimes disturbing, it has great angst, drama, romance, murder, lies and deceit. Everything you'd imagine a good mafia story to have. If you're a fan of dark romantic mafia stories this book is calling your name! Highly recommend!

    I was given an ARC copy for a fair review and just bought a copy for my Kindle because I loved the book that much. :) I read Double Blind last night and ended up re-reading it today, while I was home sick in bed because the story was that good. I loved the first book, but was completely blown away by this book. No, the book is not fluffy and light, if that's the type of book you are looking for. However, if you are looking for a dark book, with compassionate, real and flawed characters, I highly recommend this book. Adriana is not the typical heroine that we have grown accustomed to in this genre, which is why I actually like her. I have often read books that have women who are "perfect" and not very intelligent, to where I have difficulty seeing them as a believable character. This was definitely not the case! I loved Vincent in the first book and absolutely adored him in the second book, due to hearing his POV., along with feeling his love for Adriana. I hope there will be a third book, one about Maria and someone from the Vittorio family (that would be awesome).

    awesome! this book was Just as good if not better than the first oneit kept me in edge with all the drama and suspense, and while I was reading I kept thinking "I didn't see that coming" although carmine was a crazy sexy man, I felt sorry for him, he still reminded me of a young boy who wanted his mother's love, so towards the end I had mixed feelings about him..I have loved reading these books since the first chapter in the first book.. Vince is my kind of man and I think they work well together, she's not a gold digger she actually truly loves him, and I think they Mae a great couple.. I'm hoping to hear more, but I'm not sure if more of them will be too much I'm hoping to read more about Maria (best friend) we shall see :-) I highly recommend!

    PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT - this was so freaking good i couldnt put it down. thanks for sending me the arc to read because i loved this book just as much as book 1. the story was intense with so much action with the sex, the shootings, and the drama. i loved everything about it. im so happy they had their HEA in the end. i love how vincent never gave up on adriana and i just really love him in this book just as much as the other - with his possessiveness, his "dont put up with no shit" attitude and his overall everything about him. This book was seriosly awesome!!!!!

    LOVED IT! EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST BOOK.FANTASTIC. I loved ever moment of this book, even more than the first one. MS. Waltz has a way of writing characters that are not only totally believable, but you want to know everything about. This realistic style even had me feeling a little sorry for Carmine. Vince and Ade are a couple I will remember for a long time, and isn't that one of the best things about reading great books.?. I highly recommend you read this -- you won't be sorry

    I received an ARC eBook in exchange for an honest review! This is Part 2 in the dark romance between Vince and Adriana. Their explosive chemistry continues as they are thrusted into a dangerous situation out of each other's control. Again, I was swept away to a world I would never personally know (thank God)! This second part of their story will immerse you in the suspenseful and dangerous events that separate them. I loved reading more about Adriana and Vince's story and recommend it to romance readers who want to visit a world decidedly different from their own!

    So i started reading this book yesterday and finished it yesterday like around midnight. TO be completely i like the first one a lot but for some reason i was not DYING to read book two. Now that i have...... LET JUST SAY AM SO GLAD I DID. This book was way better than the first one. More action, more details about the characters, a new characters POV was introduce and that made the book so much better. What can i say. THIS BOOK IS A YES Happy i read it and am even hoping for book 3? maybe, it wouldn't be so bad.

    This book was great. I loved the continuation of Adriana and Vinces story. This book felt so much more action packed. I was on the edge of my seat worrying what was going to happen next. My only issue is I felt like it just ended. I kind of wanted an Epilogue. That's just my opinion though. Otherwise another amazing story by Vanessa Walt she's definitely becoming one of my favorite authors!

    3.5 STARSThis is book #2 of the Vittorio Crime family. I liked this book better than the first one. There is more suspense and drama in this one as well as secrets and betrayal. Add in some good sex, (though not a whole lot of sex) and a psycho and you've got a pretty good book. I recommend for those who enjoy mafia-type stories as well as alpha males.

    4.5 stars! Loved this one even more than High Stakes! Non-stop action from the beginning. Loved the unpredictability of the story and the different POVs. I would've liked a more solid ending, it felt kind of rushed. Overall, great book! Desperately hoping Waltz gives us more of Ade and Vince!

    Better Than I Expected!Double Blind quite literally had me on the edge of my seat as I read it! There were so many twists and turns and happenings that I just didn't expect! I loved it!This is a continuation of Vincent and Adriana's love story. I expected it to just be about them and Adriana's ability to acclimate to the mafia lifestyle while Vincent struggled to change for her. Boy, am I glad I was so far from the actual story! I never expected there to be a character quite like Carmine whom I really liked at the beginning, and I wasn't ready for the wild ride he took me on as I got to know him and his secrets.I recommend this book to anyone who read High Stakes and wants to tie up the loose ends and get some answers that were left over. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys fast paced, action filled mafia stories that have many twists and turns, sex scenes, and surprises all while trying to maintain some sense of normalcy in a messed up world.I enjoyed this book more than the first one because it isn't often that an author can catch me off guard with character development and plot lines. Carmine is definitely a character I will not be able to forget about soon. I also liked reading about Vincent and Adriana's relationships with each other and within the mafia. I love that they moth stay true to who they are and what they want.Vanessa Waltz has yet again weaved together an exciting and demanding story. I look forward to the next book I the series!

    Not bad, not bad. I kinda dig this. I read and kind of enjoyed the first one so I thought I'd continue with the series - and I ended up liking this one even more.Adriana and Vincent were certainly an interesting duo both times around. But I found that this time she was able to hold her own just a little bit more. In the first novel it really seemed like he was protecting her, while in this one she not only protected herself but she worked to help him too. There was some terribleness to this story obviously, it is after all about organized crime. I did like them together though, and I was certainly rooting for them (close to as much as I was rooting for Carmine to die).One thing that I really like about stories like this is that they kind of prove that everyone is the hero of their own story. We could have read this from the point of view of cops and completely hated Vincent and Adriana, but we didn't - we got to read this twisted tale from the people central to it and maybe understand their motivations a little bit.This was a really exciting story! There was mystery, murder, romance, adventure, cop chases - the list goes on. I found myself enjoying this even more than the first one. I'll definitely keep reading this series.Vanessa Waltz, I dig it and you nailed it.Check out more of my reviews at Book Bitch>

    This book was made available to me, by the author, in return for an honest review. Thank you, Vanessa, for being generous and allowing me to explore this world. Your an amazing storyteller.Double Blind is a great sequel to High Stakes. Fast paced. Never a dull moment. It completely blew me away. It's a well written dark romance with real flawed characters. Hooked from page one and finished reading first day. Couldn't put it down. In it we get three points of view (Vincent's, Adriana's, Carmine's) instead of just one, which really adds depth to the characters. Adriana is by far still my favorite character. Her emotions, inner turmoils and quirks made her so real, believable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope the Vittorio Crime Family series will continue. Highly recommend. High Stakes

    5 Seriously HOT, Dominating, Suspenseful Stars!!!!Wow, just wow, I LOVED this Mafia romance story. I truly can't express enough how unbelievably HOT and DOMINATING Vince was but that he also could be romantic, loving and oh so damn ALPHA MALE, I mean ahhhhhh he is one sexy as hell Capo!!!!!! I truly loved this story and the crap they went through, it was heartbreaking at times. I was on the edge of my seat for quite awhile when poor Adrianna was put in a horrible spot to "save" Vince and others, ughhhh I HATED Tony for making her do it but thank goodness she was able to turn it around..... This was just a really awesome mafia romance book and let me tell you Vince is just the total package, I mean TOTAL PACKAGE!!!!!!! Their sex scenes were so scorching hot and I loved reading every second of each of their sexual encounters, there was no skimming at all here, lol!!!!!!! Ending was fantastic:)
