|Brutal Reign #1|
February 9th 2021
He was never going to be my Prince Charming…
Arrogant. Ruthless. Breathtaking.
Aiden Kilpatrick is heir to the Irish mafia, and that’s bad news for me. I’m the D’Ignoti princess, after all. Daughter of the Italian Don who once betrayed his family.
I’ve lived my life in a gilded cage.
Until he kicks down my door.
Forced to sign a marriage contract, I’m given to him. A debt repayment. A plea for mercy.
But he is merciless.
Suddenly, I’m his to possess.
His to corrupt.
His to rule.
Then, his to save.
Because when the demons of my past come to reclaim my soul, I find myself craving his protection.
Those stormy emerald eyes. That wild hair. The dimples. The desire.
They call to me.
And I realize that the only thing more dangerous than falling for the devil,
Is going through hell without him by my side.
*Merciless Prince is a standalone dark mafia romance novel with mature themes and a happily ever after. It is the first book of the Brutal Reign series.
Merciless Prince (Brutal Reign, #1) by Sasha Leone was a first for me. My first real Dark Mafia Romance and the first book from this author. So I really had no idea what to excpect. I just thought I give it a try. Well…. I didn’t excpect to find myself on the craziest ride of a rollercoaster. This story had me really sitting on the edge. It is so dark, so intense and so emotional. When you hear the thoughts from the two protagonists, you get the feeling of living through the emotions by yourself. You have no other chance, but to feel with them. The chemistry between Aidan and Elisa is really explosive. Like ice and fire. But also so passionate. Their development throughout the story is incredible. They both struggle with their past, and it is amazing how they work things out.
Despite the fact, that this book was a first for me, I have no other choice but to leave 5 stars. It was fantastic and I’m so excited to read the next book from the Brutal Reign series.
