Dishonorable (The Amado Brothers #1)

Dishonorable (The Amado Brothers #1)

Dishonorable by Natasha Knight

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The chemistry between Raphael and Sofia had me ALL bothered. I’m a sucker for a cocky guy who gets in the heroine’s space, stands too close, presses himself up against her, boxes her in against something…. Raphael does all of these. To which I say, “Yes, please!”
I loved the various twists and secrets- it kept me interested. I can’t be bothered with a schmexy story with no storyline, so I love that the author gave intrigue as well.
My heart broke for how cruel Raphael’s father was to him and his mother. No wonder he was a bit messed up and angry. Of course he is, with what he endured.
Raphael was fearless and tough to Sofia’s tentative and unsure, and I loved it.
Recommended!

Sofia

I knew little of Raphael Amado’s history with my family, but when he turned up on our doorstep demanding restitution, my grandfather quickly conceded. That restitution? Me.

Six months later, on my eighteenth birthday, Raphael came for me. He stole me from my home, taking me to his Tuscan estate, where from the crumbling chapel to the burnt-down vineyard, to the cellar that haunted him, the past stalked him like a shadow. It waited for him, hid behind corners for him and trapped him at every turn. 

As much as Raphael’s cruelty terrified me, his darkness seduced me. But in the end, it was his tenderness that devastated me.

Raphael

Sofia came to me like an offering. Like a virgin to be sacrificed at the altar. But truth was, her grandfather betrayed her. I guess we had that in common. He’d screwed me too.

I knew hate. I’d vowed vengeance. This was never supposed to be about anything else. But in the end, her innocence broke me. The very thing I would destroy, destroyed me.

**Update April 13, 2017: Disgraced, Damon and Lina’s book will be out late May!

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.
