I’m the first-born son of the mafia king. The favorite. Destined to rule, I’m a dangerous man, a ruthless one. But in my world, you have to be.
Then Natalie stumbles into my life. Wrong place. Wrong time.
Twice, fate put her in my path.
Twice, fate placed the innocent lamb at the mercy of the monster.
I gave her a chance to walk away. Told her it would be better for her if she did.
But she didn’t listen.
And now it’s too late.
Because I’m not good. I never wanted to be. And I won’t let her go anymore. See, I’m not the hero. When I touch her, it’s with dirty hands.
I know my reckoning is coming though. I know I’ll burn for the things I’ve done, the sins I’ve committed. And I don’t deny hell is where I belong, but I want my time first. I want my time with her.
No matter what.
Author’s Note: Sergio: a Dark Mafia Romance is an intensely emotional, steamy and dark standalone romance set in the Benedetti Brothers Mafia world. Be prepared: this is not a traditional romance.
If you have read Salvatore and Dominic then you know a bit about who Sergio is, and while his book is third in the series, for the timeline it would actually be before Salvatore’s but don’t read this one first then read the other. Read it in the order that was intended by Ms. Knight, trust me, I think it give a stronger effect if you do. Going in I knew this one wasn’t going to be your typical book, but I also wasn’t fully prepared for all the emotions Sergio pulled out of me.
Sergio and Natalie’s relationship was fast, intense and it was ultimately heartbreaking. Even knowing what would happen I was so consumed by reading their story that I wished the outcome would be different. Events in this book are a catalyst in what sets up Salvatore’s. Everyone deserves a bit of love and happiness in their lives, even mobsters and Sergio I feel deserved his happiness the most.
I can’t go into a lot of details because I don’t want to spoil this one or the other books. Just typing this, remembering the emotions has my eyes tearing up once more. Natasha Knight explained this book perfectly and as I am typing this review I am listening to Darlin’ with tears now flowing down my cheeks because you were right I can feel it. I know that last sentence won’t make sense but when you read Sergio it will.
USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance, Natasha Knight specializes in dark, tortured heroes. Happily-Ever-Afters are almost always guaranteed, but she likes to put her characters through hell to get them there. She’s evil like that.
