Santino is my king. My lover. My husband.
He’s the head of the Cavallo crime family and the moment he choked my vows from me, my life was bound to his.
I’m done fighting my fate, until I hear two rumors, and I’m shaken to the core.
One rumor about the past—that I wasn’t the first bride Santino took.
Another about the future—a new bride is about to be taken.
Changing the old ways is like dousing the flames of hell with tears.
But I married the devil himself, and when I vowed to obey, I lied.
My ARC Review:
Book 2 in this trilogy, and this had me on the edge of my seat from the start, until that OMFG ending, what a hell of a cliffhanger, I was breathless!!!
Santino is the anti-hero you just can’t help but love, growing more protective and possessive of his Violetta, who is now his wife.
But she is no quiet wallflower, thrust into a world she does not really comprehend, she finds herself fighting the traditions of arranged marriages, not wanting the girls to suffer as she had with her arranged marriage to Santino, and getting both her and her husband in trouble and causing some mega issues in the process.
But she is realising just how much she loves him, in spite of the world she now belongs in, and wants to fight with him, not against him. But this is a mans world, the wives belong in the kitchen not discussing issues with the men, so she sets about using her ‘ignorance’ to help stop these traditions, trying to get Santi on her side.
Raw, intense, passionate, dramatic, violent…. you name it, this one has it!! Truths are unearthed, secrets are told, and betrayals are everywhere. My goodness, book 3 is going to be a hell of an ending!!
About the Author:
CD Reiss has a long history of aimlessly moving from place to place. She finally settled in Los Angeles where she earned a master’s degree in cinematic writing from USC. After graduation, she ultimately failed to have one line of dialog put on film, but stayed in Hollywood out of spite.
Since screenwriting was going nowhere, she switched to novels. Soon after, luck arrived with a complete set of baggage. She now has over two dozen titles under her belt. Two of those are NY Times Bestsellers and a handful more are USA Today bestsellers. Her audiobooks have won APA Audie Awards and Earphones Awards, swelling her ego to an inhuman size.
She lives with her family, two cats and her long-suffering husband in a small Hollywood house that’s been outfitted with huge, ego-sized doorways.
