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.Synopsis Here
I am keeping this short – you need to pick this up and read it – one of the best mob romance I have read this year.
Fantastic, this captured my heart and soul from the first few chapters and never let me go.
Salvatore and Lucia, two characters full of passion, headstrong, stubborn and who owned their circumstances with such strength.
This story flowed perfectly, we were given moments of reflection by Salvatore and Lucia, moments of intrigue, fast paced suspense and ultimately passionate sensual sexual scenes that simply made me hot and horny. My god Salvatore was just all alpha man who knew how to please a lady and was just a hero to not only Lucia but Natalie which was a beautiful story in itself.
I could pick this up again, I loved the mob mystery and game playing, the romance of Salvatore and Lucia and also their story of family and new beginnings. We even get their HEA at the end of the book and see where everyone ends up and I did like how her sister’s journey was also included in the ending.
My only question, will we be seeing a story on Dominic – I sure hope so!
Salvatore (Benedetti Brothers #1)
