Falling for the Villain by Rachel Van Dyken & M. Robinson is now live!
From Wall Street Journal & USA Bestselling Author M. Robinson & #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes a full length, standalone dark romance novel.
“Play for me, Juliet…”
Those four words whispered in my ear again and again until I craved what I used to fear. Such a simple demand from my captor—the man who stole me and refused to tell me why he wouldn’t let me go.
I was his.
He made me need him, just as much as he needed me. I broke all the rules of the golden prison he put me in.
During the day he ruled his dark, seedy world. His subjects and me.
During the night—he bowed before my feet.
Have you ever wondered what happened to the villains in all the fairy tales you read?
You’ll soon find out.
It all started when he kidnapped me and made me his pet.
And it all ended with me…
Calling him master.

My ARC Review:
A standalone captive dark mafia read, where a mafia princess, Juliet, is taken against her will and held captive by a man, who watched her at a piano recital years ago and decided she would be his.
Donovan is a nasty piece of work, he has been brought up in the family business of training pets and auctioning them off. He has had his eye on Juliet for years, now she is his, and he is determined to break her and train her to be just how he likes. Donovan is a sadist and get off on inflicting pain. He is the type of alpha who believes its his way or nothing, he is determined to get her to submit no matter what, and he is whipping her and making her bleed for the slightest bit feistiness she shows. Stories like this make it difficult to see how a man like Donovan can be redeemed.
In the end there is a villain that is worse that Donovan. We find out about Donovan’s disturbing past and just what a hold this other villain has over Donovan. We do see him start to redeem himself from about half way through, but by this time Juliet is addicted to her captor and needs him for just about everything, as he has conditioned her for.
Juliet’s family, especially her brother Romeo (from Mafia Casanova) have been searching for her since she was taken. We only learn much later on in the book just how connected this mafia family is to Donovan!
I still enjoyed this, a good story line and you will enjoy it if you like a slave/captive read, but it is dark and unforgiving at times. Yes there are some very hot steamy scenes, where Donovan is training Juliet. Even though Juliet agrees to be his it is difficult to reconcile how that relationship works with the way he treats her.
