Publisher's Summary

They call me a monster. Murderous and hateful. Beautiful but broken. Nothing can calm the ever raging storm inside of me. As the ruthless leader of the Doubeck family, there is a certain standard of brutality, I have to uphold.

Then I meet her. Beautiful, innocent, and so very afraid. Valentina is a rival family's daughter, and the little temptress has purposely tangled herself in my dark web. She seeks me out, needing my help, but the price for what she wants will be steep.

Since my father’s death, I’ve needed a wife to solidify my family name, and this woman has piqued my interest. So we strike a deal, intertwining our futures. I’ll put a ring on her finger, own her body, keep her safe, and kill them all.

I make a vow to protect her at all costs, that is until her secrets come to light, and I’m left with the choice of becoming the monster she’s only ever heard rumors about.

This is a dark arranged-marriage mafia romance. It contains dub-con/non-con as well as other scenes that may be triggering to some listeners.

1.5 HOURS LEFT.. BUT I'M DONE!!

I'm a sucker for a good Mafia 'arranged marriage' story but I'm very disappointed with this book for 3 reasons:-

1. THE HEROINE.. she's a physically abused virgin Mafia Princess but she's SOOOO damn weak and, in the hours I've listened to, she doesn't grow a pair.

2. THE HERO.. he's a Mafia Boss who is looking for a strong woman to marry.. but instantly looses his pair and says "mine" when he sees and interacts with the poor little damaged Princess. Then he just protects, pampers and gets all possessive and looses his 'alpha' by becoming a bit of a weak character.

3. THE PLOT.. there was a scene of brutal abuse and murder.. but then there was just a lot of easy easy kid gloves, talking about sex, reaching some bases and very little further gripping action or additional plot intensity. I also thought it had holes.

Worth a credit? For me no, life's too short and I just couldn't take any more from the whimpy woman and I know it could get better (probably in Book 2 of this Duet) but I lost interest and couldn't finish this. But please remember this is just my opinion - you may love it.

So-So

I did like the story but I had a hard time getting through book because Valentina's voice is so irritating and she slow talks through the entire book. Her character is rather weak and disappointing as she basically is unable to do anything for herself throughout the whole book. New narrator for Valentina.

Wish there was more depth

Wish they got a new female for recording and they would have given the female more gusto in the story but I got it so I listened to it. I would get the 2nd one but just on kindle I can't listen anymore.
