In all honesty, I stopped reading mafia stories because they all had the same plotlines:
Unexpected meeting, love at first sight, someone gets shot, they get married, “it was a bumpy road but I found my true love”
or
Arranged marriage, hate each other, learn to love, someone gets shot, happily ever after
or
Strong female MC hates LI, they learn from each other to love, they get married, ad the same ending as all the others.

I don’t know what I want to see in a story because nobody has shown me.

Firstly, they take over when their father dies. So they’re probably gonna b old by then. And secondly ‘the hot boy’ pls look into this, bc they kill loads, sell drugs & commonly, sex traffic. How is that hot? Also, if u look up previous leaders of the bratva, u’ll see they’re all violent & disgusting. Also, nobody who carries out the illegal activity of the mafia can b hot. Period. :relaxed:

I would love to see mafia story where for once the bad guys get what they deserve and end up in jail.

So MC being undercover officer in mafia and so.

I literaly cant stand the MC being good normal girl and just because she loves him she doesnt mind that he is killer or drug dealer… huh… Sorry I am because of this realy disliking mafia stories, they are usualy so toxic making criminals and the whole mafia look romantic and like something cool to be part of.:woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming:

Exactlyyy. Joining the mafia is a life sentence of killing, dealing & torturing. I hate how romance apps make it look cool to be ‘his girl’. Ugh. I wish we could put an end to the romanticizing of it :woman_facepalming:t3:

You can’t depict a relationship between cousins in an episode story because it’s incest. Depicting incestuous relationships breaks the episode guidelines

“No graphic/explicit/detailed description or depiction of illegal relationships such as incest”

That would automatically b removed from the platform. Incest is against the law & the episode guidelines :white_heart:

I dont understand how this actually can be on ap +13… let mature woman dream about such guys…, they are old enough to know reality will never look like that. But 13 old? They believe mafia is cool after reading such stories… I remember one girl who is now adult said that that was exactly how she felt about mafia when she was 13 thanks to stories like this…aaaaaa!!!

Fun is that usualy the main point of the romance is him being emotionally unavailible on the start and the slow burn… damn you can have such guy and such romance and he doesnt need to be criminal for heaven sake…

Okay… So I believe that most of the mafia stories are really cliche and not suitable for romance section. Create a mafia story as it is like make the characters look bad and not everytime the male LI should be a mafia leader females can be too and a male can be a normal school guy, I don’t think there’s a story like this and honestly mafia stories shouldn’t be romanticised. In reality it’s not same as it is in the stories and there are young teenagers reading on this app and can get the wrong idea of the Mafia.

If you want to write a mafia story make it different from others like…

Don’t end it with a happy ending, it’s really not import for every story to end like the main characters end up getting married… Make it like the MC sees true colors of the LI and he is not as sweet as she sees him. Let MC file a complaint to police and expose them.

MAKE CHARACTERS OLDER THAN THEY ARE IN HIGH SCHOOL.

EVERY GIRL DOESN’T NEED TO THROUGH HARD TIMES WITH HER EX OR FAMILY, SHE CAN HAVE A SATISFYING LIFE WITHOUT THE MAFIA.

Make the story realistic, don’t put it in romance genre and give a warning in the title or description of mature content which is not suitable for young people in our community.

Thank you for listening to my opinion :grin:

I suggest you to watch some episodes of the latest “sons of anarchy”. First because it’s not Italy related as usual (which may give you an original story) but the methods and ways are very similar. Second because it’s introspective from the point of view of the young main character and leader of the club who grew up in that habitat and he’s fighting to understand what is right or wrong and what is best for his children.

Also: make hem either look the good kind of mafia which has some serious illigal shit business but at the same times protects the people of the community, or the very bad son of bitches who have no mercy
