Bound by Hatred (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles, #3)

Bound by Hatred by Cora Reilly

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a ride! I thoroughly enjoyed the ups and downs of the broken road that brought Giannna and Mateo together. After reading the first book of this series I was most looking forward to this one (#3). I nearly skipped #2 in my impatience, but I’m glad I didn’t.
The author does a good job capturing Gianna’s state of mind as it changes throughout the story. It did bum me out that everyone believed that she had “lost her virtue” during her escape, and that she suffered so much for that mistaken belief. I was glad that it at least came out within her immediate circle (Matteo, Aria, and Luca).
Toward the end I was getting impatient waiting for Gianna to finally admit her feelings for Matteo and stop torturing herself, which made it a great story for me. I got invested in it.
Looking forward to the next book in the series!

View all my reviews

When Gianna watched her sister Aria getting married to a man she barely knew, she promised herself she wouldn’t let the same thing happen to her.
Matteo – The Blade – Vitiello set his eyes on Gianna the moment he saw her on his brother Luca’s wedding, and Rocco Scuderi is more than willing to give his daughter to him, but Gianna has no intention of marrying for any other reason than love. A few months before the wedding, Gianna escapes her bodyguards and runs away. She has enough money to flee to Europe and begin a new life. But staying undetected when the mob is searching for her is a challenge that takes everything, especially as one of their best hunters and assassins is after her: Matteo Vitiello.
After six months on the run, Gianna finally settles into a tentative routine in Munich, but then Matteo and a couple of her father’s soldiers find her with another man.
Despite her pleads they kill her boyfriend, and Gianna is forced to marry Matteo. Her emotions alternating between guilt over having dragged an innocent into her world and hatred toward Matteo, Gianna is determined to make life hell for her husband. But Matteo is a master at mind games and their struggle for power soon turns into hate-fueled nights of passion.
**Book #3 in the “Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles”. This book can be read as a standalone.**

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
