    One thought on “Respect”

    1. In my years as a reviewer, in every month, I find a book with a deep and thought provoking story. These kinds of books hold a special plot that sinks you in and traps you. The kinds of books have characters that you want to pick apart and get to know the person inside. The person behind the tales. The person behind the mystery. Respect is certainly that book. When I saw this book, I did not know what this book was about. I went in blind and what a brilliant move I made. This book truly PERFECTIO [...]

    2. There is something about mafia stories that I just love and this story was perfect. A story and world where Respect and Honor dominate. Where following orders, obeying the boss and being part of a family Rule. While Love is passionate and all encompassing, the life of Cosa Nostra is first and foremost and can begin to smother the love. Oren DemitriDriven, Handsome, Intelligent and Respectful. He worked hard to be more than his father. To make something out of nothing. He was an outsider until he [...]

    3. 3.5 stars!If you’ve read Romig’s Infidelity series, you’ve met Oren Demetri. You know him as Nox’s father. I was so excited to read Oren’s story and interested to hear about his past. Life was about choices.Oren Demetri made many choices in his life. They made him the man he is today. Some of those choices were good, some were poor, but they were all his. He owned them. Oren grew up needing respect. It was the most important thing to him. Then he met Angelina Costello and fell in love. [...]

    5. “Together. I want us to have what was stolen from both of us. This time we’ll be the parents. This time we’ll make the safe, loving home. If we need a fortress, I’ll build it.”- Oren Demetri* * * “Barely cleaned, wrapped in a thin blanket, our son was laid in my wife’s arms by another nurse.It was a moment in time that I’ll never forget.

    6. DNF 35%- no ratingI feel like maybe I read this wrong considering the wealth of 4-5 star reviews but I cannot go on.I'm going to hurt myself if I keep narcoleptically passing out due to this written ambien. I have to think of myself.Maybe it gets incredible after 35%. Maybe I'm defective. Maybe I'm missing out on something truly extraordinary, but if I'm not invested by the 35% markI'm not even sure if this book can be categorized as a romance. It struck me as more focused on Oren making a name [...]

    7. An epic story about ambition, determination, betrayal, and love. I savored every page.If (like me) you were intrigued by Oren in the Infidelity series, this is the book for you. It's a true stand-alone, because it's Oren's story. It focuses on how he became the man he was in Infidelity. It's about Oren and Angelina (Nox's mom), and the life that led to the beginning of Betrayal. It's intense, mafia, thrilling--like all of Aleatha's books. The heart of the book is Oren's love of Angelina and his [...]

    8. Rated 4.5 StarsDon't be fooled this book is not beautiful but there are beautiful parts to it. It's not a romance but there are romantic elements in it. I won't lie this book will make you hurt, it will make you cry but it's an amazing read that you will be happy you read. It's an epic tale of one man's journey and the way his life affected those around him and the way outside forces shaped him into who and what he is. Oren's story will fuck you up but man I loved it even during those parts wher [...]

    9. Wow! What an emotional book this was for me. I cried so hard. The love of Oren and Angelina touched me. But she’s the niece of mob kingpin Carmine Costello. As he’s so busy working, will he ever take time out for his family? I was so heartbroken over them. You’ll have to buy the book to find out more and go through all the emotions I did. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I recommend this book.

    10. Spelling Bee 2018The word is Aleatha’dDefinition pleaseTo be swept away in literary wonderment; to be bedazzled; to be left feeling utterly satisfied.Aleatha’d……. AˑlˑeˑaˑtˑhˑaˑdI have read everything that Aleatha Romig has published.  Respect is one of the BEST BOOKS SHE HAS EVER WRITTEN.  When I sat down to read Respect, it didn’t feel like I was reading a novel.  It felt like I was sitting down watching a box office hit as Oren Demetri’s life played out in front of me.

    14. Well, she did it again! It amazes me how this author can write all-consuming books one right after the other. I absolutely love the Infidelity series and was so thrilled to hear that I was going to get to read Oren’s backstory. I actually secretly liked Oren throughout the series even though on the surface one would think he was a bad man. I’m so glad he had the opportunity to show his true self in Respect. In this book we get to see why he did the things he did and how he felt about the man [...]

    19. sweet baby Jesus I didn't think I could possibly love Aleathas books any more than I already do she writes this emotional ride of a book. Respect was simply amazing I'll be honest when I first read the infidelity series I want to sure about Oren but this book gave me a new perspective the way he loved his wife Angelina was so moving while being torn over business. I'm in love with this world Aleatha had created you should all pick this book up. you won't regret it.

    20. Audiobook Review: 5 Stars "Oren Demetri is simply amazing!" Would you consider the audio edition of Respect to be better than the print version?I wouldn't say better, I'd say the audiobook improved the experience of reading Respect. Brian Pallino's performance was perfect. His voice, inflections, accents, emotions were the best for Oren's book and I'm so happy I decided to listen to it, it made me love it more.Who was your favorite character and why?Oren of course. This book had a better part of [...]

    21. ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest reviewThere is just something about reading a mafia romance and to have it written by Aleatha Romig makes it extra worthwhile. If you haven’t read the previous Infidelity Series, do not fret because Respect can be most definitely read as a standalone. In this book, Aleatha introduces readers to the origins of Oren and Angelina’s love story. This book gave readers an insight as to what they had to endure as a couple and if you read this series, [...]

    22. WOW Aleatha!!! Review to follow!Update:I think Aleatha nailed it when she said Respect is like "The Godfather meets Love Story.”  Respect is the story of the rise and fall of Oren and Angelina Costello-Demetri. We first met Oren, Angelina, and Nox in Aleatha’s Infidelity series. This standalone novel may be read without reading the five-book Infidelity series.  The Infidelity series is not about cheating (if cheating books bother you).   Respect is a true standalone. It can be read on it [...]

    23. Respect by Aleatha Romig is an Infidelity Novel and tells Oren´s story in a single POV. THE MAKING OF A MANRespect is a standalone, a spin-off of the Infidelity romantic suspense saga.Oren Demetri takes stock of his life, his failures and his successes,his suffering, bravery and rewards, his regrets and fears, his love and life in general.Respect is the epic tale of a selfmade successful entrepreneur. Oren Demetri is a man filled with love and adoration. Son of a dockworker, he dreams to have A [...]

    24. I am in constant awe of Aleatha’s writing, whether it is her darker, suspenseful side or her lighter side, Aleatha has a way with her writing that keeps you wanting more. Nothing is ever repeated or confusing about her characters or her storyline, she is just one of those writers who puts it all out there for the world to devour and to me that is what makes her a great author.I have read every book that Aleatha has written and I will continue to do so as to me she is just amazing at what she d [...]

    25. 4.25 starsThis book is aptly titled, as a man struggles to build an empire to protect the woman he loves, and earn the respect of her and her family, who just so happens to have mob ties.I will start off by saying this book is nothing like I expected. If you read the Infidelity series, you already know about Oren Demetri, Lennox father. And while that series was full of suspense and twists at every turn, this story fills in the holes of what we already know. We know how Oren and Angelina's love [...]

    26. OK, readers and potential readers, here goes my best effort to articulate my feelings about this book. Respect is not a novel you read in between chores, on the train, in the car waiting for the kids to be liberated from school, or in the doctor's office. I mean, you can try, but you won't.No. You sit down with Oren Demetri and you damn well STAY there, ass in chair (or couch or bed) until the author releases you at the end of the book after a tornado of emotions—emotions that run the gamut an [...]

    27. Mafia Love Story at it's finest!I couldn't wait to read Respect, for Oren is one of my favorite characters of the Infidelity series. You don't have to have read the Infidelity series to read Respect, it is a stand-alone. But after you read Respect you may want to do so I'm sure.Oren is a self-made man. He doesn't know the word failure. He is so dedicated to whatever he sets his mind on doing. Same with his love for Angelina. He loves her with his whole heart, with everything he has. She is his d [...]

    28. Life is full of tradeoffs. You want something, you have to consider what it will cost you, and not necessarily in monetary value. Some tradeoffs will affect your future, your independence, and your ability to exercise your own will and control.Respect means a lot of different things depending on who is defining this word. In the Cosa Nostra, it means obeying the leader of your family, sacrificing your life for the family, and prioritizing family needs over your loved ones. And by family, I mean [...]

    29. I will admit that though I have read several books by Aleatha Romig I have not read the Infidelity Series, yet! That being said I never felt lost while reading this book and after reading this it has me wanting to push it to the top of my ever growing TBR. The love that Oren and Angelina had is that once in a lifetime kind of love and I enjoyed every minute of watching them grow together, get married, and start a family.This story is truly a standalone within the Infidelity series but as I menti [...]

    30. BeautifulAs I sit here and dry my eyes on one of the best books I’ve ever read. i am speechless in awe absolutely in love with what I just read. I feel cheated, I haven’t read The Infidelity Series and I am truly sitting here asking myself why. I had no clue none at all. The author’s writing is phenomenal, it’s flawless. Every thing about this book is beautiful and so much more than I even know how to put into words. These characters broke me. I love how the book spanned over a lifetime [...]
