One positive aspect of this story was the pacing of Dinara and Adamo's relationship was good. In the last couple of books, Cora Reilly has spent too much of the plot before the two main characters' relationship develops, and I have not enjoyed that. This book does not have that issue with Dinara and Adamo entering a relationship in the first third of the book. Also, what little we saw of the Falcone clan was good; it was pretty cute; however, it honestly feels as if Adamo is not a part of this family.
The majority of the book takes place in Camp, the settlement of race car drivers, during their racing season. While the first couple of races were interesting to read about, they got old fast. The book felt repetitive, with Adamo and Dinara continually leaving Camp to return to Chicago or Vegas. Also, I am still a little confused about Dinara's motives to join the races and why her father is okay with her driving. There seems to be a dichotomy between him wanting to protect her and letting Dinara do whatever the hell she wants.
Reilly has created what seems to be two different Remos, the Remo from his own book or Nino's books and then the Remo you see in Twisted Cravings and in parts Twisted Hearts. I understand that Remo is supposed to act differently with people outside his family, but he does not act the same way in this book with Adamo as he does with Nino, Savio, or even a younger Adamo. This book made me miss the old Remo.
The grammar in this book was not good. I am not very good a writing grammatically correct, it is not something I would normally notice while reading books, but I did. To me, that signals that in the beginning, the book was poorly written.
Probably the biggest reason I did not enjoy this book was, the reader knows nothing about Dinara. We are given one line of information about her, but nothing is expanded on. The reader does not even know why/when Dinara learned to race. Towards the end of the book, Dinara makes a point of saying people do not tend to like her or that she is not very social. This did not line up with the personality presented to the reader throughout the book. Nothing about her was very off-putting that would make me think that she is an unlikeable person. By the end of the book, it feels as if the only thing the reader really knows about Dinara is that she is an abuse survivor.
When I do not enjoy Reilly's books, it's because I do not feel connected to the characters in the story, or I dislike the main character (Gianna). In Twisted Cravings I wasn't given the chance to like any of the characters, because I learned almost nothing about them. Anything I know about Adamo comes from previous books. Dinara's story was never fleshed out. This book had so much potential to be good, but the story just wasn't. Nothing about it was enough. The reader didn't get enough details in the Dinara's backstory, not just the abuse, but the aftermath. We learned absolutely nothing about Adamo's time in New York, and Adamo doesn't feel like a member of the Falcone family anymore.
While this might not be my least favorite mafia story written by Cora Reilly, I do think its the worst written story out of the Bound by and Camorra Chronicles. It was just disappointing across the board.
-he confesses he loves her while she’s covered in her mom’s blood
-Dinara picks a fight for no reason and constantly takes things the worse way
-they got lock and key tattoos as if that isn’t the most heterosexual thing to do, I don’t know what is
-the whole thing after they get married is a train wreck
I would have been fine with things up until the death of her mom, but then it went from ‘revenge plot’ to ‘Disney youth’ plot? Her dad forbids her from seeing Adamo again and it’s so dramatic. It really changed the tone of the book and we never really got back on track.
Twisted Hearts was not my cup of tea but it was so much better than this. Trust me. You can imagine a better book for Adamo than reading this.

There is no major development of their relationship and it jumps forward between months so I never felt like the story flowed.
It was also so different to the other books in the Camorra Chronicles. It felt like a poor version of Fast & Furious movies!
This had so much potential to be an amazing book but I feel so disappointed.
The Camorra Chronicles #6
Adamo and Dinara
It feels like it's been forever we've patiently waited for Adamo's book. And now we have it! Baby Falcone. Not so much a baby or the young troublesome, naive teenager we met in the previous books.
Adamo is the youngest Falcone brother of the Capo of Las Vegas Remo Falcone. They've got quite the reputation. Growing up with Remo, Nino and Savio he's the baby and having these three as role models, with blood and violence as their every day occurrence.
As a teenager he got into substance abuse, his then girlfriend treated him not very nicely.
Now he's a mafia made man, a darkside, organiser of the family's illegal street racing business has became his life. Living on the road, the nomad life suite's him, organising the races, coming home for short visits.
When Dinara Mikhailov (Bratva princess) waltzes into Adamo's racing camp and into Camorra territory as a racer looking for answers only the Falcones have. She's fiesty, takes no nonsense from anyone. But has a dark past were monsters haunt her nightmares. She knows who has the answers and she's going to get them, even if she has to use Adamo.
Adamo is drawn to her. As she's drawn to him.
Both don't trust easily. They both bond over their love and thrill of racing. And their darksides call to each other.
But they can't proceed anything due to him being Italian and her being Russian. It could well be war between their families. They've tolerate each others existence.
What will Dinara do with the answers she's received?
Will Adamo and Dinara defy their families, or will they get their blessings?
You're going to fall in love with Adamo and of course Dinara. She's amazing, strong, and perfect for Adamo.
Well worth the wait.
Adamo is a favourite of mine especially as we've seem him grow up over the course of the other books. Dinara was a worthy lead, they complemented each other well, both were strong and determined in every aspect of their lives.
I was sad that this didn't take place in Vegas and in the Falcone mansion like the others had as I love the family and how they are with each other. However I think both Adamo and Dinara a very different to the other characters we've read about in this mafia world.
Overall the story was gripping as always and a great read.
I can’t wait to read gretas book and Nevio. Thank you Cora for making this book everything and more it was perfection
