Filled with romance, decadent meals, and fabulous clothes, Mafia Girl offers a safe alternative to actually living out your lawless dreams, so you can avoid sleeping with the fishes.

She longs to be more than her infamous name…and when she falls head over heels for a police officer, her loyalty to her family is tested.
