Falling for the Mafia Brothers

Meghann Crane

2: Chapter 2

Once they were all in the limo, the driver didn’t waste time pulling out of the parking lot. Kyle was scared, and she didn’t know what to do. She wasn’t angry at her brother and, in a way, didn’t blame him.

She would have been afraid of being shot too. She didn’t like the idea of him getting shot, but she also didn’t like the idea of being held captive.

“You’re a quiet one, aren’t you?” Max asked.

“I don’t have anything to say to you,” she bit back.

Max chuckled at her, and he thought she was adorable while acting angry at him. He was intrigued by her, and he didn’t know why.

She was simple and pretty, but there wasn’t anything extraordinary about her.

“I know you’re angry at me, but you find me attractive. You can deny it all you want, but the truth is, I find you attractive too, little bee, and I think we can have fun.”

Kyle thought the nickname was stupid and scoffed at him. She wanted to call him an asshole but held it back.

She was annoyed at herself because she never had the nerve to stand up for herself. Even in confrontational situations she always froze.

“So tell me, is your name really Kyle, or is it short for something?” Max asked, trying to start a conversation.

Kyle ignored him and looked out the window, hoping he would get the hint to leave her alone.

“You can’t ignore me forever.” Max smiled at her, and Kyle admitted to herself that he was good-looking, especially when he smiled.

“Don’t expect me to like you,” Kyle said, breaking her silence, hoping to hide the fact she found him attractive.

“I don’t expect you to like me. I expect you to listen to me.” He leaned across and grabbed her chin, forcing her to look at him.

“I expect you to do what I want you to do, and if you don’t, you’ll get punished. If you don’t believe me, then try me.” And before Kyle could move her head, Max leaned in and kissed her.


The ride to the house felt as if it took forever to Kyle, but she knew it was only a few hours away, and she wondered why they were at her bar if they lived this far out.

“Do you not live in town?” she asked Max

“No. This is the house I live in; the one in town is so that I have something close by in case I need to be there for a few days.” Max took Kyle’s arm and pulled her to the house.

The house from the outside was huge, and she thought it was breathtaking when she first entered. She couldn’t believe such a house existed.

“Where are you taking me?” Kyle asked as Max dragged her through the foyer and up the stairs.

Max finally came to a stop at the door, and when he opened it, it revealed a large room that looked like a mini-apartment.

“This is our room, and you will not leave it without my permission. If you try to escape, you will be punished. Do you understand?”

Kyle didn’t answer him. She wanted to be defiant. She didn’t want to give up so quickly and knew she wouldn’t win if she tried to fight him, but her only defense would be to defy him in any way she could.

“I asked if you understood me,” Max said while he pulled her head back by her hair. “You are always to answer me with words, do you understand?”

When Kyle didn’t answer again, he shook her head roughly by the hair.

“Ahh, yes, I understand.”

“Great. Don’t make me angry, and you’ll live a pampered life here,” he said as he pushed her away.

“I’ll have someone come by with clothes and lunch. I’ll be back this evening, and if you misbehave, I will be told, and I will deal with you.”

“I understand.”

Max smirked when Kyle responded. “See? You’re already learning.” Max walked over to Kyle and pressed a kiss to her lips

Kyle hated that she liked his dominating and forceful ways, but she couldn’t ignore how good it felt to kiss him. His lips were skilled and soft, and she felt a tingle in her lips when his lips touched hers.

“Very good. You’ll come to learn that I don’t want to hurt you; I just want you to listen to me.” Max didn’t say anything else and walked out of the bedroom, locking the door behind him.

Kyle was angry at herself because she felt as if she’d let this happen. She should have worked harder and made more money to help Ryan. Kyle knew she needed to get out.

She needed a plan.

Kyle tried everything. She wasn’t strong enough to break the door, and the windows were screwed shut. She had no way out. She moved around the room, trying to think of anything she could do to get out.

After an hour of going through the room, she heard the door unlock and watched a man enter who was equally as handsome as Max.

“You should calm down, or I’ll have to tell Max that you were trying to find a way out.”

“Who are you?” Kyle asked.

“My name is Dimitri. Here are some clothes, and someone will be by in a few minutes to give you some food. I suggest you give everything a rest.”

Dimitri didn’t say much else to her and walked out the door.

Dimitri was careful not to overstep, but he felt an attraction toward this tiny little girl, as he referred to her. He knew his brother would be mad if he did anything without consulting him first.

He was tempted to tell Max that she misbehaved so they could punish her. He had a feeling she would like a little bit of pain with pleasure.

Dimitri wasn’t kidding when he said someone would be by shortly with food. A skinny blonde came in with a tray of food. The plate had soup, bread, and pasta.

“I wasn’t sure what you liked, so I grabbed two things and figured you could choose, or you could eat both.”

“Thank you,” was all Kyle could get out before the girl left.

A few seconds later, the door was locked again.

Kyle sat at the desk and sighed. She wanted out of the room; she wanted to be around people; she wanted a chance to see the house so she could escape.

She couldn’t stay here. She didn’t want to be a part of this.


Kyle wasn’t sure when she fell asleep; she just remembered being woken up. She was confused at first, and it took her a few seconds to realize she was being forced to live with some man Ryan owed money to.

A man she found attractive yet scary. A man she wanted to get away from but stay with.

“Wake up,” the voice said again. She quickly realized it was Max.

“I guess you got so bored you slept the day away.” Max chuckled.

“Dimitri informed me that you’ve been a good little girl. He also told me that he was intrigued by you the way I am. Tell me, little bee, who do you find more attractive: Dimitri or me?”

Kyle thought this was a trap. She didn’t know how to answer the question, and she was afraid she would be punished for any answer she gave.

“Neither. I don’t find kidnapping attractive,” she told Max.

“We didn’t kidnap you; you were given to us. There is a difference.”

“You forced him. Anyone would make that decision if they faced with getting shot.”

“Watch your tone when you speak to me,” Max warned her.

Max pulled Kyle up from the bed and leaned down and kissed her. She knew better this time and kissed him back.

“Such a quick learner. I wonder what else I could teach you.”

Max bent down and kissed Kyle back, this time taking it a step further and placing his hands on her butt. He squeezed her cheeks and pulled her closer.

Kyle gasped when she felt his erection press into her. He took the opportunity and stuck his tongue into her mouth and bit her lip. The bite caused her to release a little moan.

The moan was what Max was looking for, so he broke the kiss, satisfied he got a response out of her.

“It seems your body likes the way I handle it,” he said with a smirk.

Kyle was mad at herself for letting her guard down and enjoying what he was doing to her.

“Don’t worry, little bee, there will be more later. Now, get ready for dinner, and don’t keep me waiting.”
