Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Salvatore (A Dark Mafia Romance) By Natasha Knight
It 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.
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.
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.
Lately the mafia genre has left me not satisfied and then boom here comes Natasha Knight with Salvatore. It was super! The cover --- oh wow .. as you all know I go back and take a few minutes to really study it after I turn the last page – this cover is spot on. This is Salvatore Benedetti --
The prologue is the start of a story you wont want to put down. Salvatore is signing the papers of belonging – Lucia now belongs to him. Frightened and innocent staring at the papers he it was decided for her – for both of them. With tears streaming down her face and no help from her father – Salvatore’s father says one word that changes everything to Lucia – “sign.”
Lucia Annalisa DeMarco now had lost her future. She was now a token, a trophy of Salvatore’s family triumph over the DeMarco family. Five years later after being sent away to an all girls school Lucia is back – now ready – Salvatore intends on claiming what is his.
Holy moly – I love Salvatore. Who knew. This character made the story something that you want to consume every chance and every second you have to read. Lucia is written very well of course but I was intrigued with this man who was supposed to be a brutal mafia heir. Emotionless and a monster --- ? I think not.
I don’t want to spoil anything and of course this isn’t a stop and smell the roses book – it's dark and gritty of course but nothing you will can't stomach. This isn’t the worse I have read and it's not the lightest .. .but what I can tell you is that if you want to try a mafia book then this one is for you. Click it on up and give it a try. I really think that you will enjoy how the story weaves and ends – there is no cliffhanger which Im loving these days. Cliffhangers lately are killing me!
Thank you Natasha for the ARC and the chance to read. What a great author – I can't wait to read more so please – write us some more! I LOVED this story –
