5 stars for this one.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I struggled with what to rate this one, but as I was so engrossed in Dominic that I couldn’t put it down, I rated it 5 stars. Like with Salvatore it is a lot darker than what I am usually comfortable with, Dominic is dark and deadly, its a toss up as to whether the chills running up and down my spine are good ones or scared the bejesus out of me ones. Gia is his match in every way, she knows the life and understands him in ways that makes her perfect for him. Their world is one not for the faint of heart, blood is a way of life so is the darkness that they carry deep within their souls.
I was the boy who would never be king. The monster who could never be loved.
Gia was just a job. Just another girl caught in a world of monsters.
It didn’t matter that I liked the look of her.
I didn’t care that she cringed when she saw my soul.
I liked it.
I liked her fear.
And I wanted her.
Monsters didn’t get to live happily ever after, though. I knew one day I’d have to go back. Because time neither forgave nor forgot.
And neither did I.
Old debts needed to be settled. Enemies punished. It was past time I returned to the family business. I’d been gone far too long.
All my life, I believed in fairy tales. Not the Disney kind. Never those. I always knew life was darker than that.
I was the daughter of a foot soldier. The sister of a snitch. A nobody.
Monsters had been part of my life for as long as I could remember, but none as dark as Dominic Benedetti. None as cruel. None as broken.
I had no illusions about what he was. I had no desire to save his soul. And I couldn’t care about his bleeding heart.
But love isn’t always beautiful. It could be a twisted, ugly bitch.
I’d always known this was the kind I’d find. The only kind that could touch me.
Because some of us, we belonged in the dark.
And Dominic and I belonged in the dark.
Author’s Note: Dominic is a steamy standalone romance with an HEA. He is the ultimate Anti-Hero, so be prepared for a crazy, sexy ride. To fully understand Dominic’s actions, I recommend reading the first book in the Benedetti Brothers duet, Salvatore.
