*I have reviewed this book under no obligation to the author or other party and have received no gift or other compensation for this review. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own.
This is a gripping romantic suspense with a dark underbelly of threatening evil. Deceived (Book #2 in the House of Sin series) picks up a few days after the end of Forbidden , which must be read BEFORE reading this book. Once you've read Forbidden you will understand why I am hooked on this series and read Deceived as soon as it dropped on my kindle.
Despite the description, I knew I was getting a dark themed romantic suspense, rather than a truly dark romance. However that really doesn't matter because both Forbidden and Deceived are incredibly well written books, with a plot that immediately sucks you into the story and characters that steal both your heart and soul.
Forbidden ends with Luc drugging and kidnapping Natalie. This is done to try and keep her safe from the evil clutches of his family, but you just know it doesn't bode well. Despite their love for one another both Luc and Natalie struggle to do the right thing, to trust and be honest with the other, and this leads to a clash of wills and lots of angst.
A call from home drags them back into the path of Luc's family. Can Natalie reconcile her love for Luc with her hatred of his House? Will Luc be able to keep Natalie safe? There is a battle for control and power between Luc and the House Salvatici, and it isn't only Natalie that ends up in the cross-hairs. I'll warn you now...this ends on one heck of a cliff hanger. A screaming 'NO!!!!! YOU CAN'T DO THAT' cliff hanger.
Luc and Natalie really go through the wringer in this book. Sometimes I forgot that they had only known each other a few weeks. It felt like for every two steps forward they took one, two and often three steps backwards. They tore my heart in two, just as they ripped each other's hearts apart. This book is like being cast adrift in the middle of a huge storm, the waves of emotion poured over me, battered me, threatened to pull me under and drown me, yet they are also what kept me afloat.
I have no clue as to how the story will continue in the next book. I'm hoping for a HEA. Actually I'm hoping for hellfire and damnation to rain down on the House of Salvatici and devour all those with evil in their hearts, but I'll settle for a HEA instead.
If you're looking for a damn good read, one that kept me reading until 2AM IN THE MORNING, because heck this isn't the kind of book you can put down once you've started it, then look no further. Be warned there is a plenty of steamy $*x, some bad language and one very hot alpha male who occasionally needs a slap upside the head. (If that doesn't make you want to read it then I'm not sure what will). Oh and Book 3 won't be out for a couple of weeks yet *sigh* but at least that will give your head and heart some time to recover.
Luc will do whatever it takes to keep Natalie alive. Not just safe, but hide her and disobey his family, after rescuing Natalie from the hitmen his father sent to kill her. Natalie can’t understand how someone who claims to love you can do the things Luc has done to her; all she wants is to get away from him and his wretched family and their secrets. Natalie’s feelings soften, and she begins to understand him, when Luc confides his deepest, darkest secret to her. Luc tells her everything, so she’ll understand why he’s so fearful of his family and what they can do to her. He knows he can’t lose her, and swears he’ll protect her at all costs.
“My angioletto. The only person in the world who had the power to once and truly break me. And who I was pretty sure would before all was said and done.”
With lives in danger and knowing one false move can be fatal, they make a decision to go back to Italy and defy the House of Salvaciti, in order to protect and rescue loved ones. Luc tries desperately to awaken the feelings Natalie has buried; in order to protect not only herself, but her heart. And after a lifetime of betrayal she knows she doesn’t want to feel any more pain and will do everything she can to make sure of it.
“I didn’t know if I could trust my heart or my eyes. I only knew that there were two kinds of pain in life—the kind that hurts a person and the kind that changes a person. I was just deathly afraid to discover whether it would change me for good or bad.”
This story ends with a terrifying cliffhanger and I was screaming at my Kindle ‘Noooo, that’s not supposed to happen, there are RULES!’ Sometimes rules don’t apply and I guess this is one of them.
