Release Date: March 23, 2021


I was born with noble blood in my veins.

Heir to a powerful dynasty.

Wealth. Power. Aristocracy.

Temptations too dangerous to resist.

Until someone tried to steal it all.

Scarred and broken, I emerged from the flames.

Now I’ve returned to take what’s mine.


The first item on my agenda?
Make Ivy Moreno my wife.

Bend her until she breaks.

A. Zavarelli is single handedly responsible for my love of mafia romance, so when I saw she was releasing something similar with Natasha Knight, I knew I had to get my hands on it immediately! I didn't even read the blurb. I just trusted that it would be fucking fantastic, and I wasn't wrong! 

Santiago De La Rosa is hell-bent on revenge after someone kills his father and brother in an explosion that he himself barely makes it out of alive. Half his face is scarred beyond repair, and his soul is wounded just the same. When the mortality of his mentor and the man he believes is responsible for the attack on his family is in question, he decides his plan for vengeance needs to be adjusted and set it motion immediately. 

Ivy Moreno has been living her life on borrowed time. Every daughter of the Society is brought up with the knowledge that one day they will be forced to become the wife of a member. Their life is not their own, and Ivy's college career is cut short when she receives word that she's been chosen. 

Since Santiago can't make the man responsible for his family's demise pay, he settles for destroying his family instead, starting with his little girl. Ivy has no idea why Santiago chose her, especially when he's much higher up in the Society, a powerful and respected Sovereign Son. Santiago suspects that Ivy has full knowledge of her father's nefarious deeds, but even if she doesn't, he's going to make her suffer all the same. 

Santiago is everything I want in my crime lord anti-heroes! He's dark, dangerous, domineering, and dripping with big dick energy. His tortured existence and tattooed face is just the cherry on the top! 

Ivy is a loyal sister and daughter that is  unfortunately caught up in other people's bullshit. I couldn't help feeling for her right from the start. Her brother is a disgusting piece of shit, and her mother is a horrid bitch. She certainly doesn't deserve Santiago's wrath either, but as fucked up as it makes me, I'm glad he decided to give it to her. I have a feeling it's going to be the best thing that's ever happened to either of them!

A gorgeous mansion full of darkened rooms with barely a mirror to be found, a staff that sees the good in their master when he appears to have none in him, a tormented monster that rarely leaves his castle, a library full of books, and a beautiful, innocent young woman trapped inside, Requiem of the Soul gave me all the Beauty and the Beast vibes! Only in this version, there is sex, murder, betrayal, violence, and revenge plots. In other words, it's even better!

I picked up this book thinking I would read a few chapters and go to bed, but I wound up finishing the whole damn thing. Feeling like a zombie the next day was totally worth it! The cliffhanger kills, but it's absolutely perfect! If I wasn't already dying to know where this story was going, that definitely sealed the fucking deal! 

If you're not a fan of cliffhangers, no worries! Every installment in the trilogy will be out within a month of the previous one. You won't have to wait long, and absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that shit! 

Fans of the A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight or the arranged marriage and hate to love tropes, this is a must read!  

Dark romance fans, this one's for you!
