Owned (A Dark Mafia Romance) by Clarissa Wild

Description

She escaped the mob boss, but he will always find his pet.

My name is Harper, but to him I’m only Kitten.
When Marcello Dellucci bought me from the auction, my life was destroyed.
Locked away in his mansion, I became his precious pet.

His needs are twisted.
His kisses are dangerous.
And his touch makes me come alive.

But I can’t ever fall for this mafia man.
This man who lied.
Betrayed.
Hurt.
Killed.
All for me.

So I run, as fast as I can.
But I know I’ll never escape his grasp.
Sooner or later he’ll come to claim what already belongs to him…
My heart.

Owned is the jaw-dropping sequel to Sold and the conclusion to the Dellucci Mafia Duet by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Clarissa Wild. WARNING: This book includes scenes that may be disturbing to some readers.

EXCERPT:

Running from a mobster is the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
I never thought I’d find myself in this situation. That I’d be chasing a lie, wishing the people who raised me really were my parents, and that I hadn’t seen my true father die right in front of me. I wished I could pretend and stay with him, the man who saved me from the people who stole me and raised me as their own … Marcello.
But he lied to me.
He knew the people who took me weren’t my parents, and he never told me. And I can’t ever forget that he chose not to tell me.
So I run. I run like hell because that’s all I can do when faced with the impossible.
The impossible choice between what is right … and what my heart desires.
Because I know, deep down, that I have already fallen for this man.
But this forbidden love is not meant to be.
He used me. Treated me like a pet. Like something he owned. Just because he bought my soul.
But my love is not for sale.
He may have saved me from that fire at my fake parents’ house, but that doesn’t make him any less of a monster.

My Review

Book two starts where book one ends, so it’s advised that you read them in order.

Harper is now on the run after escaping Marcello. She feels hurt and betrayed by the secrets Marcello has hidden from her! She just needs to stay hidden long enough for him to move on….

Marcello wants his “kitten” back, he’s fallen for her and fallen hard! There is no way he’s going to let her escape, calling in all his resources he plots his kittens return. And when he gets her back, she’s never going to get away again!

Intense is the word to describe this book! There is so much going on, there are bad guys that want Harper (both to use against Marcello and for themselves!) There is a family reunion that’s more like a horror story than a happy reunion! And then there is the conflict that has to be resolved between Harper and Marcello.

I have to say, I preferred her House of Sin series to this duet. I know it’s a dark romance and I know there was triggers, but I just didn’t connect to the characters in this book as I did with her other books!

So will Harper forgive Marcello? Can he rescue her from her horrible family? To find out your going to have to read the book 😉

Excerpt: With a single finger, he reaches for my face, but not in a threatening way. Instead, he gently grasps a strand of my hair, swiping it away from my cheek before tucking it behind my ear.
“You don’t need to snoop. If you want to know something about me, ask. I am more than willing to give if only you would ask.”
His strokes are so soft that it moves me and takes my breath away. He looks at me with such intensity that it’s hard to look away. But then I remember that him lying to me was the sole reason I ran away.
So I turn my head away from the palm of his hand. “You expect me to be honest with you, yet you won’t do the same for me.”
He frowns. “What do you mean?”
“Why else do you think I ran away?” I say. “You lied to me about the fire. My parents. My father. About everything you could.”
“I didn’t lie. I omitted the truth,” he says with a tightened jaw.
“That’s the same thing,” I scoff. “You knew who I was, and you chose not to tell me.”
He grabs my arm and pushes me farther against the pillar, trapping me between him and the concrete. “I did it to protect you. Because I knew you would hate me if I told you the truth. Harper, please.”
My lips unlatch as I look up into his face. Did he just say … please?
“I hate this. I hate arguing with you.” His jaw tenses up again along with the muscles in his chest. “But what I hate more is that I cannot choose.”
“Choose what?”
Suddenly, he smashes his lips onto mine, and I’m captured by surprise. His lips are rough against my softness, dominant against my sensitivity, and it pushes all my buttons. It confuses me to the point where I don’t even know what I’m feeling anymore. Because when his lips are on mine, everything else ceases to matter, ceases to exist.
And that … that’s what’s been scaring me.
When his lips unlatch, my body is on fire, and I want nothing more than to kiss him right back.
But I know I shouldn’t.
Not until I know for sure what it is that I feel.
What it is that he feels for me.
“I want … everything from you,” he groans. “So much that it destroys me.”

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"
