Blog Tour Review feat Giveaway: For Fallon by Soraya Naomi


We all have a façade, a concealed mask we wear to portray ourselves to the world. 

Fallon’s mask is real, what you see is what you get. Growing up with two loving parents in Chicago, graduating in Chicago, and now working a job she loves, she enjoys her life. 

Her untarnished world is shaken when Luca crosses her path. 

Luca’s mask is tightly controlled. Distrust, rivalry, and violence rule his life.

When confronted with insecurities, when the one you love wears his mask perfectly, when your life unravels and you don’t know why, do you keep trusting the person you love? 

Everyone has a façade. Everyone has an ulterior motive.


 Mobsters, betrayals, lies, romance. For Fallon has it all. I relatively went into the story blind. I didn't read the synopsis and I was happy with the outcome. The first page in I knew this was going to be a good book. How good I wasn't sure, but I knew that Fallon was a character I liked. There were a few instances in the book that somewhat annoyed me. I also noticed that the dialogue was sometimes stilted at times but I liked the story enough to where it didn't bother me too much. 

The story starts off with Fallon and her friend going out to a club when she finds herself enamored with a beautiful man who can't see to take his eyes off her as well. Once the two meet, sparks fly and there's no going back. The story is told from both the pov of Fallon and Mr.Mystery man, Luca. From the very beginning we know something terrible is going on but we don't know what it is. 

And boy does it get exciting!! So much drama, so much deceit, I just love it!!! This is my first mafia-type book and now I'm already searching for another one like it. 

After a certain part in the book, things just blow up. At that time I wasn't able to put the book down. I just had to know what happened. Then that ending happened and i was left with why. Like why is this over and why do I have to wait? If you like mafia stories and books that keep your jaw dropped, then this is for you. 

His gaze is piercing through me. He tilts his head and arcs one brow in silent question, Need any help?
I almost imperceptibly nod my head.
Mystery man speaks to his company, who’s leaning with his back against the bar. The other guy whips his head around to look at me and is obviously not agreeing with his friend’s intention to intervene. He disregards his friend’s comment and comes over to Nick and me. He walks right up to us to place a secure arm around my waist, tucking me gently into his side and turning slightly, so I’m engulfed in his one arm embrace. His breath strokes over my temple while he speaks. “I’m taking her for a dance.” His deep, throaty voice which exudes sensuality fits him perfectly in his tailored suit. The guyglowers at Nick, daring Nick to defy him. His intimidating stance has Nick backing off instantly, and he leads us both away with his arm firmly holding my middle.
I don’t even look back at Nick. My eyes are glued to this man. My mouth quirks up in a smile as he shows me an enthralling sidelong grin.
When I’m about to ask his name, he halts. “You’re welcome,” he whispers the words against my ear. And again, he strolls away.

About the Author: 

Soraya Naomi resides in Europe with her entrepreneur fiancé. She attended university in The Netherlands.

Although she reads many genres, she favors intense, dark, seductive, and provocative novels where the male character loves fiercely without remorse or boundaries. 

She has a passionate obsession for the written word and indulges in chocolate pastries much too often. 

There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. 
Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book. 
― Stephen King
