Confessions of Us by Alexandra Forry ♥ Fun Facts, Book Tour & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Romantic Suspense)


As a girl, Adaline was left orphaned due to gang violence and to be raised by her grandmother and her parents’ old friend Frank, now following in her parent's footsteps she finds herself at a crossroad in her life of what she wants and what she feels she has a responsibility to do. As soon as Adaline makes the commitment to the mafia however her life becomes riddled with lies, betrayal, lust, and murder. When the one person Adaline always thought she could believe in becomes the one person she can't trust a question begins to pull at Adaline's mind one day will she live through it or will she find herself in an early grave just as her parents did? Adaline is unsure of the answer but will do anything for the possibility of becoming a famous news journalist.



I’m Alexandra Forry and today I will talk about fun facts and did you know tidbits about my books.

Omerta Affair is a fresh twist on the cotemporary romance genre. I always wanted to write a story about a mafia boss and a showgirl, Tony Torino and Evelyn Rosenberg. When Evelyn’s ex-husband, Gus, dies, their daughter Adriane is left to clean out the house with the help of Tony’s son Victor. They discover that the rumored love affair
between their parents was true.

Growing Up in Las Vegas, NV.
Nevada, I had grown up with all of the stories from family and friends about
how the mafia kings and queens were living the high life before greed and envy
destroyed them. As I started to dig into my city’s past, I was very intrigued
by Tony Spilotro’s reign as the Las Vegas Mafia boss, in the 1970s. He had it
all, running the Crime underworld, corrupt cops, hit contracts and such, Money,
and Sex. Then when he could have any woman he wanted in Las Vegas, instead he became romantically involved with a mob associate and a childhood friend Frank “Lefty”
Rosenthal’s wife Geri Rosenthal. That was a big no-no to sleep with another
man’s wife in the mafia.

As for my other book, Wildflower is a story that I've been working on for a long time. Such joy to see it published at last.
Wildflower is set in the heart of Sedona Arizona, It’s a delightful read
about a teenage girl and her aunt opening a coffee shop in Sedona and how their
life is turned upside down when they meet a billionaire and his daughter.

This book was inspired by real-life stories. My grandma had a sandwich and coffee shop before I was born and while I was growing up she told me stories of her sandwich shop and the people that she got to know. No there wasn’t a sexy billionaire eating at her sandwich shop. I always thought it would make a great book if I just added some romance to it and a sexy billionaire and his out–going daughter.

My latest book, Confessions of Us, what if the mob still rule Las Vegas and woman can join the mafia? The book is a refreshing look at Mafia relationships and a love story that doesn't end in the typical man gets woman. Trust me you won't put the book down.


"A psychic? Have you lost your mind?” Zach says, but the group files in the dimly lit room- the smell of incense wafting over them.

From the walls hang deep purple curtains, there are black couches pushed to the sides of the room and in the center is a coffee table with a pile of "Magic Today" magazines. As the door swings to close the bell at the top ring and a woman comes down the hall to the room. The woman has long black dreaded hair that is pulled into a ponytail and eyes rimmed with dark eyeliner, introducing herself as Madam Neprine she begins calling them back individually. Adaline is called back first.

Following Madam Neprine into the back room Adaline becomes extremely nervous all of a sudden. The room is even darker than the one they entered before with deep blue walls and no windows, this remind her with her parents, they were killed in a car crash when they swerved off the road and into a river unable to get out of the car. Adaline becomes extremely fearful of being trapped. Nervously Adaline sits across from Madam Neprine as the woman takes both of her hands and closes her eyes.

“I see a big change in your life. You have a troubled past that will come back to haunt you in the next couple of months. A great war will find you as well as even greater love.”








Alexandra Forry has an incredible talent for living vicariously through the colorful and intriguing escapades of her strong female characters and successful leading men. Her first book, “Omerta Affair,” based on the true story of mafia boss Tony Torino and his paramour Evelyn Rosenberg has recently been adapted and re-released as “Timeless Endings”--romance fiction. “Wildflower,” is an adventure in coming of age for both a young orphan and her repressed aunt who is trapped in a destructive marriage. It is a beautiful story of life, hope, growth, and triumph and deals with many of the traumas of youth, such as bullying.
Alexandra Forry is familiar with life’s challenges. She was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now she lives with her loving family in Williamsburg, Virginia. Alexandra has conquered the limitations of Cerebral Palsy to write exciting and engaging novels. She has completed a number of talks and internet book tours and is a member of the Las Vegas Romance Writers and RWA. She is currently working on her seventh book.

  6. Who'd have thought getting mixed up with the mafia would involve lies, betrayal and murder? Heck, it must have seemed an innocent enough decision at the time.
