Ghost by A. Zavarelli
Publication Date: August 25th, 2016
I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing
I ever wanted was to fly away.
Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged.
Nothing scares me anymore.
He makes the numbness go away.
He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers.
A gilded prison.
A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to.
He thinks he’s caged me, but soon…
I’m going to fly.
I live by a code. The Vory code.
In this mafiya world, there are traditions.
She does not care for these things. She does not care about anything.
She thinks she has me fooled with her haunted eyes.
What she can’t know is that I see her better than most.
She wants to fly.
But I’m going to clip her wings.
And make her my wife.
**This is a DARK mafia romance. A full-length standalone novel with HEA and no cheating.**
Oh oh, I do love a really good dark romance.
This book is dark, not the darkest I’ve read, but dark. Dark enough for me to take a really big deep breath when I was finished reading. There is so much going on in this book. The relationship between Talia and Alexei is so very toxic and messy. Nothing about their relationship is conventional. Emotions are running wild and their story is heartbreaking, yet so beautiful. This book is not going to be for everyone. If you do not like dark romance, stay away from this book. If you do like dark romance, go in with an open mind. Overall I thought that this was a really great read. It was addictive and hard for me to put down. It’s all a little unconventional but in the end, they see how much they are alike and how much they truly love one another.
I received an eARC of Promise Me Forever, a collection from Top Shelf Romance in exchange for an honest review. This book was included in that collection.
