Sofia knows how it feels to be the consolation prize.

Too young.

Not blond.

And definitely not an ice princess.

Her sister is—was all those things. Perfection. Until she wasn’t. Until she ran off to be with the enemy and left her fiancé behind.

Now Sofia is given to Danilo in her sister’s stead, knowing she’ll never be more than second best. Yet, she can’t stop longing for the love of the man she’s been crushing on even when he was still her sister’s.

Danilo is a man who’s used to getting what he wants.



The sought-after ice princess.

Until another man steals his bride-to-be. Danilo knows that for a man in his position losing his woman can lead to a loss of face.

Wounded pride.

Thirst for revenge.

A dangerous combination—one Danilo can’t leave behind, not even when a girl just as precious takes her sister’s place to placate him. Yet, she’s got one flaw: she’s not her sister.

Unable to forget what he’s lost, Danilo might lose what he’s been given.

My Review 💋

It wasn’t my name that would be whispered in the pews today. Because I was the consolation prize. The surrogate bride. Worst of all, I was not my sister.

My next fix from my favourite Mafia Universe is here!!!! 'Fragile Longing' is a standalone Romance by the best selling author Cora Reilly , set in the Same world as the Camorra chronicles and Born in blood Mafia Chronicles.

My god , Cora really does not hold back in this one! Fragile longing is the perfect blend of Dark and mysterious that Everyone would love! All the mafia lovers, you need to read this book! Danilo and Sofia are on fire!

Danilo is a man with too much pride. He once was engaged to the ice queen of the city and he adored her a lot. That is until another man kidnapped his bride on their wedding day and made her his. Left with a wounded pride , but with a third for revenge, Danilo is not going to stop until he crushes Remo Falcone. He wants what is the best for his territory , so he accepts the offer to marry Sofia , who is the younger sister of his previous fiance. But he still yearns for her older sister and in his pain he might not see the gift he has been given.

Sofia was too good for me, and that only made me want her only more— like a magpie drawn in by her shiny light.

Sofia has always wanted Danilo. Even when he belonged to her sister. When fate made him her's , she couldn't believe her luck. She was so happy. Those dreams came crashing down when she realised that it was not her that Danilo wanted but her sister. She was tired of being the one whom Danilo never noticed. The consolation bride. Soon she realises that Danilo might not be the perfect gentleman she portrayed him to be. He is something much more Darker.

This book is a masterpiece for all the mafia lovers and is highly recommended to them by me! Cora Reilly is one of my best one click authors , so take it seriously when I tell you that you all need to give this book a go. This Mafia Universe by this author is one of my most favourite world's to get lost in and I have read these books not once but multiple times!
