Tina for A Biblioromance Book Blog
Taking over this family isn’t going to be easy. There are a lot of things that have been left undealt with. A lot of people need reminding of the man I am; what I can do to them, what I can have done to them. I control the cards. I determine what happens. The outcome is in my hands. I am the king.
Weakness isn’t a possibility. I’m not weak. I don’t cry or tell a sob story. Why would I? I wanted to be like my father; strong, willful, powerful. I wanted to make him proud. Jax will keep me as his bride and I will fight back. My words will be silent, my actions controlled. And when he least expects it-when I least expect it- I will do the unthinkable, unimaginable, in my world.
(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
This is exactly what I was hoping for in the sequel to Bella! More of that sexy and powerful Jax Moretti and the sass and defiance of his reluctant wife, Bella Sagatori Moretti, mafia princess.
In this installment of the series, we get a glimpse into the mind of a mob boss, Jax, and his struggle to accept that he has feelings for his wife that go beyond a promise of an arranged marriage.
This was and easy and quick read of complex characters and a well thought out storyline. It ends in a cliff-style, but not in a devastating WTF-way.
Reviewer’s note: Hawt-as-hell sexy scene!

Kimberly has been writing since she was a young girl growing up in Kansas City, Mo. Reading and writing has always been a big part of her life. She enjoys a world she can get lost in while reading a good book. A wife and mother to four beautiful children she decided she wasn’t busy enough. She spent some time chasing down fugitives as a bounty hunter then laid down her hand cuffs and finished her college degree in nursing.
Kimberly loves discovering new music to jam out to and loves anything that’s different. When Kimberly isn’t writing or playing superhero for her children, she takes care of her patients as a Registered nurse in the field of hospice.
