BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.


5 "YOU ARE MINE" Reading Owls

I've been waiting for this book forever and then it finally released and I was like:


I've been a huge Cora Reilly fan since the moment I read her first book Bound by Honor. She is a great writer and I wholeheartedly admire her writing.

CARA(our heroine) is a part of Las Vegas Camorra(mafia). She is a very sweet girl and is always kept guarded and protected by her father. Her future was well planned, she was supposed to marry a reputable man called Cosimo and perform her wifely duties and give birth to his babies and lead that life, everything was decided until everything fell apart. Falcone (the head of Las Vegas Camorra) kills her father in front of her eyes and kidnaps her mother and sister and the most frightening part, gifts her to a ruthless man. Everyone called him "GROWL", the man whom everyone feared*yikes*.


Growl is accustomed to his loneliness. He knew what everyone thought of him but didn't care.
He was tortured far beyond his limits and now has merely become a walking dead. He didn't show any feelings, his face was always a mask of calm**creepy right?but you all will love him**. He hated his life until Cara.
Cara and Growl experience a strong connection from the very first time they saw each other.
Growl both scared and fascinated her. But she is her prisoner, his possession and he is her only hope to save her mother and sister and avenge her father's death by killing Falcone. By spending more and more time with Growl, Cara realizes that there is more to Growl, she realizes that he is controlled by his past.

The sexual tension is off the charts and they both desire each other strongly. He controls her body.

"Growl had monstrous parts, years of abuse that wouldn't change. Years of abuse had burned those into him, and if I chose to stay with him, I'd have to live that fact."
Cara is conflicted about her feelings. She is damn confused that why can't she just hate growl for what he did to her.



Growl treats Cara like a precious gift, he is so different with her, he will do anything to save her*fangirling*

Growl is damaged beyond saving. He had gone through so much that had turned him into a monster*wiff*. But they finally confess their love*cheers* and Growl is determined to become a better man.

"I want you to stay with me because you want to stay. I want you to want me."


I love love loved it. I loved how Cara wanted Growl to redeem himself. I loved how Growl wanted to protect Cara, how he wanted to love her. He was just beautifully broken. The story is really interesting with the right amount of sweetness, hotness, and action. This story had a forbidden love vibe. It was a beautiful read. Mafia romance fans are going to love this book. Just pick it up and start reading.

Cara's Rating- 5 Stars
Growl's Rating- 5 Stars
Plot Rating- 5 Stars
Sexual Scene Rating- 5 Stars
Action Rating- 5 Stars

ARC Review: Intrepid by Keri Lake

In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks. 

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness. 
But that's the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out. 
It's been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I've tasted retribution and crave more of it. 
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free. 

The plan …

Lev by Aurora Belle

From the moment Lev Leokov spots the young woman hiding behind her hair in the middle of the gentleman's club, he can't take his eyes off of her.
For the very first time in his life, he is affected. Having been told his entire life that he can't process or understand emotion, he considers it a big deal.

When Mina Harris gets caught red-handed with a wallet that isn't hers, she falls apart. She's tired, lonely and hasn't eaten in days.

Lev offers her an ultimatum... A nice warm bed, a hot meal and a job, or the cops.

Mina takes her chances with Lev. 
After all, a person with nothing has nothing left to lose.

Review: Imperfect Misfits by Devanshi Sharma

Tiasha: I am very annoyed.
Aakaash: That’s your job, Tiasha. Good that you are doing it well.
Tiasha: And I am very serious.
Aakaash: When are you not!
Tiasha: Argh! I hate you, Aakaash. 
Aakaash: Thank God for small mercies! 
Just like a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes the sizzling chocolate brownie delicious, these best friends complimented each other. A chef by passion, Tiasha jumps and waves through her professional choices, while Aakaash, the witty stand-up comedian, knows exactly what he wants.
He was the tranquility which refugees crave to stay in and she was the refugee, who wanted to wander and explore. Imperfect Misfits is a story of perfect misfits, food, frolic, emotions and their endless imperfections.
The question is, will their friendship survive through this wavy journey of love?

ARC Review- The Boy And His Ribbon By Pepper Winters

“What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret? 
I’ll tell you what you do.
You lie.”

REN

Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth. 
His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror.
But then…he ran.
He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed. 

DELLA

I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything. 
My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it. 
At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why.
For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.
But by the end…he loved me.
The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely differe…
