LuciaIt all started with a contract signed by him, then by me, while our families watched. While my father sat silent, a man defeated, giving his daughter to the Benedetti monsters. I obeyed. I played my part. I signed my name and gave away my life. I became their living, breathing trophy, a constant symbol of their power over us. That was five years ago. Then came the time for him to claim me. For Salvatore Benedetti to own me. I had vowed vengeance. I had learned hate. And yet, nothing could have prepared me for the man who now ruled my life. I expected a monster, one I would destroy. But nothing is ever black or white. No one is either good or evil. For all his darkness, I saw his light. For all his evil, I saw his good. As much as he made me hate him, a passion hotter than the fires of hell burned inside me. I was his, and he was mine. My very own monster. Salvatore I owned the DeMarco Mafia Princess. She belonged to me now. We had won, and they had lost. And what better way to teach a lesson than to take from them that which is most precious? Most beloved? I was the boy who would be king. Next in line to rule the Benedetti Family. Lucia DeMarco was the spoils of war. Mine to do with as I pleased. It was my duty to break her. To make her life a living hell. My soul was dark, I was hell bound. And there was no way out, not for either of us. Because the Benedetti family never lost, and in our wake, we left destruction. It’s how it had always been. How I believed it would always be. Until Lucia. Author’s Note: Salvatore and Lucia’s story is a steamy standalone romance with a happily-ever-after. No cliffhanger and no cheating. It is intended for mature readers.
4.0 "SALVATORE" STARS!!!
I owned Lucia DeMarco, but the thought only made me sick. She was the token, the living, breathing trophy of my family’s triumph over hers.
DARK + MAFIA ROMANCE = MY WEAKNESS!!!
Holy crap this book!!! Just like any other dark story, I am really rooting for this one. I waited patiently/impatiently for "SALVATORE" to hit my reader the moment I finish signing up for an ARC. Hell who wouldn't??? When you read the blurb, it doesn't just caught your interest, you'll be drawn to it to the point of creepiness because you'll just keep on stalking the author for updates of the book. Hell!! I did that. So the moment it arrived, I haven't put the book down. I was hooked right there and then.That prologue though, I was so damn sold out and just then realized I just had my new addiction... Salvatore!!!
How would you feel like being a payment to your family's debt to the point of being humiliated? Freedom stolen from you? To be an enemies posession?To live like a trophy over someone's victory to your family? To be owned by a MONSTER or to FALL IN LOVE with the MONSTER?
Gah! Salvatore and Lucia's story is one that will make you feel so much. Rollercoaster of emotions is an understatement. For instance, it started grim but along the way as the story progresses, you'll experience a different shift of emotions. I really can't explain it!!Hell I haven't even at 10% mark but I was so damn turned on I was squirming in my bed and it was just a start and from the fact that before that I feel like I wanna scream so loud. Was it even wrong to feel that way? Fuck! I don't care! it's how reading this book feels like. So now go figure how much more when you reached several chapters after?
I can go on giving you details of the book but I wont so I will not ruin anything or spoil you anything. Writing wise, it was flawless. The author's narration will pull you right into the story making you feel lost with it. You'll instantly feel a connection with the characters. Their chemistry plus your interest to them as a reader is just a perfect blend that reading is not pure effort but just flowed flawlessly. I love the heroine's character. She is strong despite what she went through. And Salvatore... my oh my...this sex as sin alpha man that can really do you... Hawt!!! I love him as much. What they both went through is partly heart wrenchingand mind numbing. Several scenes made me chuckle and snort but I couldn't deny the level of angst of the story...the flutter of butterfly in my tummy in anticipation for the next scene and the leap of my heart, the gasps and the adrenaline rush for every twists and turns of the events. And those sex scenes.. *fanning..It was so raw...so intense..seriously, forget your knickers you'll just ruin it!
It may be stated dark mafia romance but it was not to the highest point of a dark story. The Mafia storyline was not that expounded and elaborated fully so maybe that was what I was looking for. The blend of a DARK and MAFIA world. The interactions...the dirty world..the actions that comes with it.However though, I could say that what the author would want to reach to her readers were fully covered and that's what is more important.
To sum up? I like this book. I highly recommend it. And did I mention it's my first Natasha Knight book? Oh well, it wont be my last.
