Kate Blessing is very used to her life. She gets all of the designer handbags, the latest clothes, and any car that she wants. It doesn't even bother Kate that the only reason she is able to afford these luxury items is because her father is a mob boss. Having a family full of mobsters has never been a problem for Kate; she has always been around the lifestyle, just never a part of it. At least that is what she thought at first.

Her life was running smoothing until her mother, Amanda, decided that she couldn't handle Sonny's affairs anymore and up and left the family. The worst part is that Kate's mother was the one who held the mob together, since she was the one that Sonny, Kate's father, went to for advice. Now that Amanda has left, the mob seems to be falling apart.

But without even thinking about it, Kate begins to give advice to her father and to all the mobsters, advice that has actually helped them in some of their illegal activities. Unfortunately, one of these activities sparks a riff with another mob family. And just like that Kate finds herself in the middle of this problem, along with Nick, the son of the enemy. Having a mob as family doesn't seem like the greatest idea now, at least not for Kate.

FOR MONEY AND LOVE is the perfect book for anyone who wants a girl's point of view on the happenings of the mob, and it is definitely worth it. Todd Strasser creates an entertaining opening for his new MOB PRINCESS series. Unfortunately, the next book in the series, STOLEN KISSES, SECRETS, AND LIES, will take forever to be released -- well, in September to be precise.

Readers who enjoyed books such as SON OF THE MOB by Gordon Korman will want to get their hands on a copy of FOR MONEY AND LOVE.

This was a fun read. I felt the book itself should have been longer but I guess that is why this book is in a series. I am looking forward to the next instalment.
