I’m so excited to be a part of the release blitz for Savage Ruler by Kristen Luciani. I’ll also be sharing my review for it.
My Fiancé Is The Anti-Prince Charming…
Mateo Villani is darkness wrapped in Armani. He’s a six-foot tall, ruggedly-handsome savage, a notorious gangster who’s bedded half of Manhattan…and now he’s my fiancé.
My father betrayed me, signing my life away to the cocky bastard whose personality is colder than a block of ice. Mateo crushed my ambitions when he slid his ring onto my finger. He stole my life away and now he’s determined to mold me into a dutiful mob wife.
But I have news for him.
I obey no one.
As the days pass, I am more and more determined to hate him, to resist the deviant fantasies that swirl through my mind when he’s near. But before long, I can’t live without the bound wrists, his rough hands, and sinful body.
I find myself longing for him…and his punishment.
I despise my fiancé.
But it doesn’t stop me from craving him even more.
SAVAGE RULER is the first book in the SINFULLY SAVAGE series by USA Today Bestselling Author Kristen Luciani. This Dark Italian / Irish Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance is a standalone suspense novel, complete with a guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers. Blazing hot bedroom scenes with a little bit of kink are intended for mature readers only!
“I…I didn’t want his hands.” She pauses, biting down hard on her lower lip. “I wanted yours.”
“Do you think you deserve them after that?” I press my forehead against hers, her lips close enough for me to bite.
She pauses for a split second then nods.
“I told you I’d bring you here tonight to show you what happens when you disobey me. Now you’ve let someone else touch you, which is even worse.” My pulse throbs against my throat, adrenaline flooding my insides. So much control, lost in a goddamn hot second. These are my fucking rules, nobody else’s! My skin crawls with the knowledge that the curves of her body were just worshipped by another pair of hands. An overwhelming urge to go back into that room and strangle that guy takes hold, and the only thing that keeps me rooted to this spot is Heaven and her wide-eyed stare. “Nobody touches what’s mine. Do you understand that? I don’t fucking share…ever.”
Her hands travel down the sides of my torso as she nods. “Okay.”
“No wife of mine will ever disobey me,” I hiss. “Or there will be consequences.”
“Are you going to punish me now?” she says in a sultry tone. “Because if you don’t, I have to warn you…I might keep being bad…”
I’ve recently gotten really into mafia romances so I was super excited when I was able to read this one in advance. While I haven’t read many with arranged marriages, I ended up really enjoying this one!
I definitely wasn’t expecting Heaven to be so strong and such a huge part of the family business. Usually in mafia books, the women in the families don’t seem to have as big of a role as the men do.
I really enjoyed the banter between Mateo and Heaven. That was definitely something that kept me completely invested in the story. Their love for each other felt a little forced at times, but it didn’t really take away from the story for me.
I will definitely try out other Kristen Luciani books in the future and look forward to reading more in this series.
