Lucia

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.

Salvatore

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.

Until Lucia.

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.

Review

4-star

This starts right off with Lucia DeMarco being given to the Benedetti family to settle a debt and to protect the rest of the family. Salvatore was to break her and to keep her as a living trophy and then follow in his father’s footsteps to become boss, but not everyone is supportive of him.

This was actually a different mafia story….it really seemed more focused on family drama than big mafia power plays. I don’t say that as a bad thing, but it was just not what I normally see in a mafia story. It was pretty refreshing to have such a different story line.

I actually enjoyed Salvatore, he was torn between being the man his father wanted him to be and the man he was destined to be. Lucia was also interesting…since she grew up protected she didn’t really seem to be able to find herself. I actually liked the decisions she made.
