Bound by Vengeance (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles, #5)

Bound by Vengeance by Cora Reilly

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not my favorite from the series

I love this series, but this book seemed- watered down. The story dragged in places, and I agree that switching between 1st person and 3rd person, combined with the grammatical errors, was distracting. It took me out of the story. I think this could’ve been much better with some editing, maybe another element of conflict. Perhaps a discovery that the whole betrayal had been orchestrated by Anastasia in order to steal Cosimo due to some deep jealousy/feeling of rivalry? Or maybe Growl hadn’t known who his father was until it was revealed toward the middle or the end of the story? There were some tethers of additional layers, but I felt like they could have been explored a little further.
Still love the series, and still going to read the final book along with the spinoff series.

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.

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.

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.
