Laora's Review:

MOBSTERS’ GAY SONS SERIES BOX SET was good to read, I always prefer one above loose books in a series. All three books have the same couple at their centre. It follows both men from their 'hook-ups' till their relationship after their marriage. And all it takes them to get there.

The story had a fair bit of heat , with d/s. The mc's characters in general are developed sufficiently, but in some parts I wished the details where more filled in, why they behaved or react in a certain way.

Rating: 4 Stars
