I will have to say that this book is the latest in my favorite series by Judy Serrano. I have reviewed the other books in this series, Easter’s Lily, Brother #3, Relatively Close, and Memoirs of a Mobster. I was so excited when the author let me know the latest in this series was now available. I immediately asked if I could review it. That was Monday night and now it is Thursday and I am writing this review. So folks this book is that awesome. Here is a brief summary of the story.

lost years

                        Finally thinking they are free from the mob, Max and Lilly settle down in a small town in Texas called Quinlan. Lilly’s son, Diego Montiago Jr., is preparing for the day when he graduates high school so he can learn the ways of his uncle, and become the next kingpin of the Mexican Mafia. In this fifth book of the Easter’s Lilly Series, this young adult spin-off finds Lilly doing everything in her power to make sure that does not happen. During his high school years, Junior falls into a crowd of misfits, just to fall in love with the quarterback’s girlfriend. But this is no ordinary girl and their trials are no ordinary trials. Junior grows up quickly while the mob’s ever-present arm is still squeezing the life out of him. Just when he thinks he has found what he is looking for, everything changes. With love and hate balancing delicately in the distance, life and death become suddenly all too real. As time begins to run out, Diego Montiago Jr. is forced to make a decision that will change his life forever.

This book picks up the years after Lilly leaves Diego Sr. and begins her new life with Max. The story’s main focus is Diego Jr. or as he likes to be called Jr., Lilly’s oldest son. Jr. is in high school and finally the back story is given to how Junior becomes the man he is in Memoirs of a Mobster. I loved how Serrano took us back in time to fill in the gaps of the lives of Lilly and her children. Like I said I received this book on Monday and I finished it last night. My first reactions were wow now that makes more sense. I have totally loved this series and could see it being made into a television series. Yes folks it is that awesome. Imagine if you will Latino brothers who all fall in love with the same woman, who is powerless to resist any of them. If that does not make a television series, I don’t know what will.

If you are looking for an awesome series to read than check this one out. I will have to say that I love reading series because I get invested in the characters and love to see how they grow. This is definitely one of the best series that I have read and I hope it never ends. If you are interested in reading this awesome book and finding out more about this amazing author check out Judy Serrano’s Website.

Also the whole set would be awesome Christmas gift for the reader in your family. Christmas is just right around the corner.
