Brooklyn Cross

He already took everything from me, but now he's back and won't take no for an answer.

In a tale as old as time, a mafia princess fell in love with the wrong boy, or in my case, boys. I am Jasmine Isabella Falcone, and I grew up knowing that I needed to be on my guard from the snakes around me. But, even knowing that, I still fell in love with Angelo Esposito and Dario Lombardi.

Crushed and humiliated, I try to move on, but some ghosts are harder to shake. Now, at twenty-three, I am being forced into an arranged marriage where I'll be expected to fulfill my duties as a wife and mother. But I dream of building something different and crave freedom from the shackles of the patriarchy. So I do the only thing I can and run. On my own for the first time on a picturesque country property nestled between Sinhaven and Beastville, I try to rebuild my life.

But fate proved that just because you run from your past doesn't mean it won't catch up to you.

The fairytales have it wrong. Not every story ends with a knight in shining armor.

Praise for this book

Such an amazing read from an amazing author. Dark retelling of Aladdin with a RH twist! I loved everything about this book. Brooklyn Cross took it to another level with adding in some characters from past books! (No spoilers here so you gotta read to see it) 😘 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was such a great retelling! Aladdin is actually one of my absolute FAVORITE movies in the world so I was scared to read it but Brooklyn absolutely did this story good! The dark, why choose, mafia addition to a classical childhood favorite really brings this to an adult new level! If you love dark romance and if you love fairytales, this is absolutely your story to read! I WILL be reading more by this author! - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Humility was not what I thought it would be when I saw it was an Aladdin retelling.... it blew my expectations out of the water! Brooklyn did such a fantastic job weaving together a fairytale retelling with a mafia twist. The storyline kept me turning page after page, and the spice was perfection! This is a reverse harem with dark themes. Please read trigger warnings before reading. - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The spice, banter, and plot were top notch. The story follows Jasmine who is a mafia princess who has to marry in order to pass on her families legacy. She grew up in a male dominated world, and Jasmine is not about that life. She would rather not get married then be the typical mafia princess. Jasmine is a great FMC, she is so strong and sassy! When she is forced into an arranged marriage, she fights back! - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
