Children of Ambition by JJ McAvoy.... Review by Dawn

Children of Ambition (Children of Vice, #2)

"Show me a strong woman and I’ll show you the scars on her soul that made her so.”

Everything I’ve done, everything I will do…no remorse. The world is a vicious place for a woman. It’s even crueler to the daughter of the Ceann na Conairte—discarded, married off, left powerless…

But I am no ordinary daughter of the mafia.

Unlike every other mafia family, my mother was Melody Callahan, Bloody Mel, the Don of the Italian Mafia, and the Don didn’t raise some precious mafia princess.
Bone by bone she broke me first, so no one else could—and bone by bone, I pieced myself back together.

I am no longer just the daughter.
I am the Don.
I am Donatella Aviela Callahan, and there is only one way—my way.

My Review

Ok, this review is going to be a little hit and miss, simply because there is absolutely NO way I can spoil any of it for you. 

First and for most Donatella, she is the very definition of a "Love/Hate" relationship. I was not very fond of her in Vice, she came off as an entitled brat. But in Ambition, we really get to know what makes Dona tick. She is power hungry and nothing will stand in her way... or maybe one person will. But who, Ethan; Wyatt; Evelyn; Mel and Liam? The Family is never to be betrayed, can Dona live up to The Callahan Family Rules? 
You will be shocked and taken on a journey of discovery in this story. Things happen that made me have to stop and take a deep breath just to be able to finish. And the last chapter, I was not prepared for the genius that is JJ McAvoy and her gift of surprise endings. Oh and the added bonus of an epilogue or two!!! I know, I was flipping out as well.

I will leave this little snippet. This is my favorite line of the entire book. I'm going to keep you guessing as to who is saying it...

"Today we'd wear what she wanted us to wear. Eat what she wanted us to eat. Say what she wanted us to say. Because her message was clear... In an instant, if she wanted to, she could destroy us all."
