Being born into slavery, I never thought my owner, my very mother, would sell me. And she didn’t.
I was tormented, struggling to come to terms with my new life then he narrowed it down to two things.
The man confused me at every turn with his unexpected and unattainable desires.
If only he’d speak to me.
If only he’d tell me how to avoid upsetting him.
If only I could please him.
**Disclaimer: This is a DARK erotic Italian Mafia story. There are twisted behaviors in this book not everyone will be able to handle. Explicit, violent, and sexual scenes are involved. Not for the wary of heart.**
First, I want to say that I’ve been a fan of Rachael’s for a long time, and I’ve always enjoyed her books. This one was much different than any others of hers that I’ve read. When I say it’s dark, I mean there were parts even I had trouble reading, and I love the dark reads.
Matteo is part of an Italian Mafia family. He’s brutal and ruthless.
Gia was born into a life of slavery. Her mother was her Madam and was willing to sell her to the highest bidder.
Matteo brings Gia to his villa and introduces her to his expectations. It’s a life completely different than what she has even known.
Matteo is a complicated character. One minute he’s gentle and sweet and the next so completely sadistic,it’s like he has a split personality. I was a little disappointed by the flow of the book; sometimes it felt choppy, but other times it was very smooth. At times I felt like something was missing.
There are scenes in this book that are very difficult to read, and if you have any trigger issues, I would advise against it. Over all, I did like the story, because by the end, you see the whole picture. And I love the way it ends.
Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.
I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.
I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I’ll write just about anything once to learn from it. I’ve even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you’ll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.
Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
