Disclaimer: 18 + for language, violence and sexual situations. This is a DARK and STEAMY read! Like for real DARK and STEAMY!
First off let me say that this is my first Natasha Knight book that I have read or reviewed. I signed up for the ARC because of the blurb and the cover. I will start with the blurb below:
I’m the first-born son of the mafia king. The favorite. Destined to rule, I’m a dangerous man, a ruthless one. But in my world, you have to be.
Then Natalie stumbles into my life. Wrong place. Wrong time.
Twice, fate put her in my path.
Twice, fate placed the innocent lamb at the mercy of the monster.
I gave her a chance to walk away. Told her it would be better for her if she did.
But she didn’t listen.
And now it’s too late.
Because I’m not good. I never wanted to be. And I won’t let her go anymore. See, I’m not the hero. When I touch her, it’s with dirty hands.
I know my reckoning is coming though. I know I’ll burn for the things I’ve done, the sins I’ve committed. And I don’t deny hell is where I belong, but I want my time first. I want my time with her.
No matter what.
Author’s Note: Sergio: a Dark Mafia Romance is an intensely emotional, steamy and dark standalone romance set in the Benedetti Brothers Mafia world. Be prepared: this is not a traditional romance.
Ok so this is a DARK romance, when I say dark I mean a Dark Mafia romance where the hero is an anti-hero. You are not sure why you are rooting for him and the heroine to have a happily ever after because you also kind of hate him. This is not a new theme for Mafia romances… ever watch the Godfather, Goodfellas, The Sopranos… yeah you see my point. So this is kind of a standalone prequel to a series that has already been written. I have not read the other two books in the series but I plan on it. Ok, so the author is really upfront about this not being a sunshine and roses book and that is true. But I respect that she is up font about that and I went into this read with my eyes open if you will. I love a good anti-hero book where you alternate between hating and loving the male lead. Which done well is the whole point of a Anti Hero book, I think that this book has done it well. I don’t really want to go into the plot mainly because I am not sure how to do that without any spoilers. Sooo I think that you will have to get by with the blurb above.
I guess what I am trying to say that if you are in the mood for a DARK, STEAMY, MAFIA-TASTIC ( that is totally a word) and potentially UGLY CRY book then give this a try. I am using all caps for a reason people… just to warn you. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series after I read a fluffy historical romance with a guaranteed happily ever after, maybe with a unicorn and rainbow thrown in.
USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance, Natasha Knight specializes in dark, tortured heroes. Happily-Ever-Afters are almost always guaranteed, but she likes to put her characters through hell to get them there. She’s evil like that.
