Publisher's Summary

We were husband and wife. Predator and prey. One fearing the strike while the other craved the slaughter.

I was never a beloved daughter. Only a prized possession to be kept in a gilded cage until my father was ready to trade. It was my duty, carved in stone and written in my blood that one day my virtue would be exchanged for an alliance. And now, that day has come. Gian Silvestro, heir to the Silvestro empire, will accept me as his wife. He will seal my fate with a kiss that holds a thousand promises. But to him, our vows only mean one thing: I am bound to him...and shackled to his hate.

The Devil's Vow is a dark, twisted enemies-to-lovers arranged-marriage mafia romance from international best-selling author Bella J.

PURE BLISS.. UNTIL THE H U G E CLIFFHANGER

~ AND I NEED BOOK 2 STAT ~

At twenty-one Daniela Moretti was callously exchanged in a business deal between her blackmailing father and Gian Silvestro.. bartered to a ruthless cruel man who loathes her and her family. This alliance would be no fairytale.. in fact it’s a dark nightmare filled with hate, secrets and lies. Behind Gian Silvestro’s forced marriage to Daniela Moretti.. anger rages within him that Moretti blood flows through his new wife’s blood. He freely admits and proves he’s the Devil but his new wife’s strength, fire and backbone brings out his possessive caring side. However, this is not a blessed beginning.. nor a love match yet.. and definitely not a happily ever after love story.. it’s a first born son and a first born daughter’s journey, growth and betrayal in an arranged marriage neither of them initially wanted.

Worth a credit? Yes, it gripped me from the Prologue to the last word with its intensity, unwanted attraction, sizzles, sex, chills and thrills etc.. etc.. etc and the dual POV narration was good too. But wow, the Prologue was dark.. and initially I wondered just how this gifted author was going to turn my dislike of the anti hero around.. but slowly she managed it. And she completely blindsided me with the shocking cliffhanger ending.. and also the chilling glimpse of the dark scenes that starts off book 2.

Not Quite a Devil

After their arranged marriage, Gian treated Daniela horribly. He was definitely a devil who tried to make her life miserable. But she is a very strong young woman. After they start to become close, their life is ripped away from them. Although Gian's brother is really nice to Daniela, I didn't think he could be trusted and he proved that. I am looking forward to Devil's Vengeance especially after that ending. Anastasia Watley and Michael Pierce did a very good job with the narration, especially Michael. Anastasia sounded much too old for a young Daniela..

Promising Duet Until....

... the preview of The Devils Vengence at the end of the this book. The Devil's Vow moves pretty quickly through an arranged mafia wedding and hate to love theme. The characters are pretty flat and the eventual sex scenes don't disappoint. The true dark mafia storyline is introduced in that preview at the end. I thought it was a little darker than something I'd enjoy so I read several reviews. Glad I did. When I'm spending my credits, I want to be picky.

The Devil's Vengence is a no go for me. Triggers. Rape. Torture. Abuse. Unanswered questions. Throw in some reconciliation and a victimized heroine and it's all too dark for my liking.

Hard Pass.

The male narrator needs help.

The book is okay. It does end on a cliffhanger, which isn’t my favorite ending but I knew that going in.

While some parts are predictable others have twists I didn’t predict. The story is basically the same as all the others. I may need to find a new genre.

I don’t plan to listen to part two. Mostly because the male narrator gets on my nerves. He speaks his lines as if every thing has an exclamation point at the end. And he can’t keep his accent going with any consistency. So not putt g myself through that torment.

Dark romance

Dark romance with possible triggers. I’ve made it to the end but I did have to put it down a few times. More than not it was Mr. Pierce’s reading. Not everything needs to be said so dramatic! And every word is dramatic. I can block it out most of the time but not always. That is the main reason why I stopped and listen to something else… anything else. Finally after a couple of weeks made it to the end. Then chapter one preview starts and I’m like I can’t do this. If he’d just read and get dramatic when it’s needed the performance would be a 5.
But this is just my thoughts

A very dark book

From start to finish this is an absolute fantatic read. The book holds your attention and you will not want it to end. Unbelievable cliff hanger. Great narrators. if you like sex violence and love look no further. Can't wait for the next book
