BLURB:

Cian MacFarlane is the oldest son of Chicago’s reigning crime family. Now the defacto boss of the organization after his father’s retirement, Cian is feared by his enemies and revered by his brothers. But what if Cian isn’t all he seems to be? What if his end game isn’t to maintain his father’s empire but to topple it? As the MacFarlanes broker a deal with the owner of the world’s largest dark web site, Cian brokers a deal with the FBI. But when he meets Lila Rodriguez, a genius hacker working with the dark web, his feelings for her only make life more complex.

Determined to save his brothers, even if it means sacrificing himself, Cian lives moment to moment in a deadly underworld of cybercrime, drug deals, federal agents, and a vengeful parent who won’t hesitate to remind his oldest son what it means to be a MacFarlane. Through it all, Cian fights for his brothers to make it out of Chicagoland crime. But will the pieces fall into place before his breath of deceit is discovered?

*Breath of Deceit is the first volume of The Dublin Devils Series and contains an HEA for certain characters, but readers are forewarned that the MacFarlane family story will continue in three additional novels.

3 ‘where was the romance’ stars?

I must have read a different book compared to all the fantastic reviews here, so it seems once again I am in the minority here so take this review with a pinch of salt.

I was intrigued by the blurb and that in all honesty should have been the first sign as a mention to a heroine wasn’t really made in the blurb. So that is kind of my fault.

The characters are all interesting in their own way. Cian is trying to get out of the family business being the boss of the Irish mafia he will do everything to protect his brothers. He expects never to survive his double life. The plot mainly concentrated on how Cian was going to get his brothers out.
The book is well written, and the pace overall was solid. The development of why the story was going interested me but it would slow down with what the day to day routines were.

There are two opponents the Vasquez Cartel and behind them the Bratva which kind of got confusing.

The romance concentrated a lot on Cian’s brother and his ex-girlfriend Jess whom he cheated on with the sister of the Cartel. I’m not sure what the author was trying to aim at and I personally find it hard to categorise this book. Is it a thriller or a crime with a dash of romance? Romantic suspense or something completely different.
