Sold (A Dark Mafia Romance) Dellucci Mafia Duet by Clarissa Wild

Sold (A Dark Mafia Romance) by Clarissa Wild

Description

Sold to the mob boss, now she becomes his prey.

I am Marcello Dellucci, new don of the Dellucci Mafia.
And my devilish reign over the city has only just begun.

But when a beautiful girl steps onto the auction stage I forget everything I’m supposed to be.
I want to claim her, no matter the cost.
So I buy her body and take everything she has to give.

Now she’s my pet, my Kitten… My Harper.
And I’m not ever letting her go.

She’s more precious than even she knows.
And our dark pasts are more connected than either of us realize.

I will ruin anyone who dares to take her from me.
Nothing will stand in between us.

Not even her.

Excerpt: The door opens again. It’s the same guy, and now he’s grabbed Melanie. She gives me a panicked look right before the door slams in my face.
Will I ever see her again?
Even though I don’t know her, and we only met briefly, it’s as if we’re forever connected at this moment by trauma.
The more time passes, the longer it feels, and my breathing becomes erratic. How much longer until they come for me? What lies beyond that door? I’ll find out soon, but the waiting is killing me … and the gun shoved against my back really doesn’t help ease the nerves.
“Your turn,” the guard behind me says, laughing to himself. “Be on your best behavior, now.” He leans in to lick my neck, and it makes me want to puke. “Or you’ll have to answer to me.”
“F**k you,” I say through gritted teeth.
He laughs again. “Believe me, far worse men than me are waiting for you out there, love.”
I wish I could slap the smirk that follows right off his face.
The door opens once again, and a fresh breeze wafting past me makes me suck in a breath.
“C’mon,” the bastard says as he grabs my arm and tugs me out of the hallway and into the light. It’s so bright that it blinds me for a moment, pointed straight at me.
But one thing’s for sure … I’m on a f**king stage.
What the hell is going on?
The guy pushes me forward, forcing me to walk to the middle. A few cruel laughs emanate from the room beyond the stage. Once the light dims, the men finally become visible. There are a dozen of them, maybe more, all in fancy suits, drinking expensive liquor, smoking thick cigars.
And they’re all watching me.
One of them raises a paddle. “Fifty,” he calls out.
This … this is an auction for me.
I’m horrified. Completely and utterly horrified this is happening. That these men are willing to buy girls like they’re objects, like we’re less than human. How dare they? How f**king dare they do this to us, to me?
Who the f**k bought Melanie? And that other girl? Where did they take them? What did they do to them?
God, this can’t be happening!
My blood is boiling, but I can’t f**king let them see the horror I feel. If they know, it’ll only fuel their desire. Their filthy eyes show that longing for a forbidden girl. One they can’t have … but take anyway, because money can buy you everything.
But I learned long ago never to show a man you’re angry or sad. It only gives them ammo to hurt you.
So I resist the need to lash out and yell, to thrash and fight them off, knowing it could get me killed. Instead, I press my lips shut and stare at them in silence. That will be my defiance, my pride. I won’t give them what they want. I won’t cower, and I won’t cry. I will stare at all of them to let them know what they’re doing is wrong.
For the briefest of moments, I feel strong.
That’s when I spot him.
Marcello.
He’s right there, in the front of the room, sitting in one of the chairs with a glass of whiskey in his hand. There’s a sparkle in his eyes as he stares right back at me with that same twisted desire he had in the club. And at that moment, the world feels like it suddenly shifts on its axis.
Because he’s probably going to do everything he can to make me his.

My Review

Book one in a duet series. And it’s a good one. Full of twists, turns, betrayal and secrets. It’s also a passionate and dark read. So check the warnings before grabbing the book.

Harper teaches self defence, she’s never going to let anyone down that she loves again. Watching her parents die in front of her has had a profound affect on her. She’s never forgotten, and she’s sworn to herself that she would find their killers and have her revenge!

Marcello is the head of the Mafia (the Dellucci’s) he’s not afraid of anything, he’s has to be that way to earn both the respect of his men and the other “families” but trouble is brewing, so a show of power is needed!
Meeting for the first time has Marcello enraptured with this beauty! He doesn’t usually give women a second glance, he doesn’t have too! But this shy and almost innocent creature has him under her spell…. Being a waitress to follow a lead has Harper falling into a dark and dangerous world! After escaping both Marcello and the bar, Harper needs to regroup.

Being kidnapped!! Being auctioned like a piece of meat!! Being sold like she was an animal!! Harper is terrified! It’s a nightmare that just won’t end! Being kidnapped and then sold was a degrading and demeaning experience! The only saving grace is being “brought” by the handsome stranger she met in the bar. But when she’s told that she won’t be going anywhere and that she’s “technically dead to the world” it brings her world crashing down!!

Then begins the story, a battle of wills, to see who comes out on top! Harper can’t or won’t give in, and Marcello won’t take anything less than her total surrender! It’s raw, it’s passionate, it’s going to pull you in all directions!

So we leave this book with loads of questions….. We leave the story with twists, turns and a few secrets that could tear this couple apart!

I’m hoping book two has all the answers! And I’m hoping it gets here soon…..

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
