*Cruel Knight is a standalone Dark Mafia Friends to Enemies to Lovers Captive Romance with mature themes and a happily ever after. It is the third book of the Brutal Reign series
|Cruel Knight (Brutal Reign, #3) by Sasha Leone was a phenomemal ending to an epic journey. The Triology was my first Dark Mafia romancce from Sasha Leone and what can I say….. I fell in love. With every word. With every emotion. With every character. Her writing style is very unique and I really got the feeling of living in the story while reading it. That is something very special an author can do to a reader.
From the first book, I thought that Tara deserves more than just to be a side charcter. She deserves her own story. And she got it. This strong and fierce woman deserved love and hapiness. I knew that her story with Shane would be epic. He too deserved some light in his life. And he found it in Tara.
The love and hate between them is like ice and fire. It is so hot and explosive. Shane is very impulsive an din combination with Taras fierce it is a dangerous mixture. And the danger from outside their relationship really left me breathless. Not to mention the action Shane gets in. Just epic!
As I said before, this was my first trio from Sasha Leone, but it will be definetly not the last. This woman knows how to write a damn good Mafia Romance.
“Who are you?” I ask, my eyes still shut. This is no ordinary monster.
“I am Nolan Kilpatrick. Underboss to the Kilpatrick crime family. Chief Financial Officer of Kilpatrick Inc. Sergey Barinov’s most fierce enemy. Your captor. That is who I am.”
For a second, I stop breathing. I just stop fucking breathing. It’s not that my lungs don’t work, or that my brain won’t move, it’s more of an existential crisis; like a meat hook has lowered around my soul and then ripped it out of my body.
The fear is paralyzing.
Then, as it all sinks in, that dreadful numbness is replaced by a raw burst of suffering.
If I thought the pain in my throbbing head was bad, it’s nothing compared to the rupture of pure horror in my heart.
That’s when my eyes finally flick back open. And when I turn to face my captor, I see that same chest pounding stranger that subdued me in Manuel’s office.
Even in the soft light of this bedroom, a darkness shades his handsome features. Those cold grey eyes smolder like ashy embers over striking cheekbones. His thick red lips are shut tight.
Even through the fine material of his smoky grey suit I can sense the power of his body.
This man is pure beast. A brutally beautiful monster.
And he’s captured me.
|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.
The Devil Killed My Father, So I Took His Daughter…
Stealing the Bratva princess was just the start.
To draw her father out of hiding, I’ll need to make her scream.
There’s only one problem.
Every time she opens those pretty pink lips,
I’m tempted to smother them with my own.
That wasn’t part of the plan.
This is my forbidden captive. The daughter of my enemy.
She’s supposed to inspire hate.
Not threaten to thaw my icy heart.
But it only takes one taste, and I’m obsessed.
I need to claim her.
… It’s the only way to save her.
Because for as brutal as I am,
Something even worse is coming.
And without my protection,
Valentina could lose more than just her innocence.
She could lose her life.
*Brutal Savior is a standalone Dark Mafia Enemies to Lovers Dark Captive Romance, with mature themes and a happily ever after. It is the second book of the Brutal Reign series.
|As I said in the Review for the first book…. INTENSE!! A Nerv-racking plot twist and a wild ride on a rollercoaster mixed with passionate love and hot sex. That is the perfect mixture for the perfect dark mafia romance. And here I thought, that I don’t like reading mafia storys… Well it turns out that Sasha Leone did a great job. I can’t get enough of the Kilpatrick Brothers.
Brutal Savior (Brutal Reign, #2) by Sasha Leone is about Nolan, the laywer. Whenh he first appeared in the first book, I tought he was the calm brother of all three, but it turns out, that he is just the monster that his older brother doesn’t want him to be. It is just who he is. The question is, can the sweet Bratva Princess Valentina handle the monster. She is a queen. How she handles every situation is really amazing. Even if it seems impossible.
The author did an amazing job by capturing Valentinas and Nolans character. Their development is so good. The writing is just as perfect. The plot twist really got me on the edges. I don’t think I have any emotions left. Yeah…. I admit it… I cried. Hard and ugly tears. I don’t think I’m ready for the last story. But I’m so excited for Taras and Shanes story. I think they are something special.
