REVIEW ~ COLLATERAL by Natasha Knight is LIVE!

Today we are delighted to be bringing you USA Today bestselling author Natasha Knight’s all-new Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance, COLLATERAL


Gabriela

Stefan Sabbioni showed up uninvited in my bedroom on my sixteenth birthday. He stood in the shadows smelling of whiskey and death and wrapped a broken, blood-crusted necklace around my neck. I thought he’d strangle me with it.

That night, he left a message for my father. He said he’d be back to take something precious.

I never delivered that message, though. I wonder if things would be different if I had because now, two years later, he’s back. And he’s not hiding in any shadows.

He’s come to make good on his promise.

He’s back to take that something precious.

Me.

Stefan

Marchese is the manipulator of my family’s tragedy. I won’t just bring him to his knees. I’ll bury him for what he did.

Taking his daughter is only the beginning. I’ll do it knowing I’m starting a war. I’ll do it knowing my enemies will become his allies. They’ll stop at nothing to destroy me and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.

I’ve never shied away from war, though. I’m not one to play nice and I don’t share my toys. I’ll demolish you if you touch what’s mine.

And she is most definitely mine.

What can I say! As soon as I read the blurb I was hooked. Waiting with great anticipation for it to land on my kindle, I couldn’t contain my excitement when it finally arrived. One of my favourite genres.

This story starts by delving into the past to give us a glimpse of what happened and where the story is going to take us and the reasons why. It’s not going to be pretty, but you’re going to love it as much as I.

Stefan Sabbioni. Tall, dark and handsome with a commanding presence. I guess being a member of the Sicilian mob will do that to you. Wealthy and powerful and hell-bent on revenge. The reason? This is the part where I urge you to read the book, so you can find that out for yourself. Sorry lol

Gabriela Marchese. Beautiful, wilful, scared and sometimes terrified, she’s the daughter of a powerful man who practically held her prisoner. Educated at home, she has no friends and lives her life in a gilded cage. Physically and mentally abused by the one person who should have been there to support her, guide her, love and look after her. Her father.

Her mother died in an accident and her brother’s in a care facility. She’s all alone apart from the one friend she has.

When these two characters first met, only one of them knew what’s going to happen. The future is planned, and it isn’t going to be all sunshine and roses. Revenge, not a pretty word. Both come with emotional baggage, something they have in common.

Using Gabriela meant that she left one prison for another. The only difference was geography. Packed off to a palatial property in Palermo Italy, awaiting the arrival of her fiancé soon to be husband, she swapped one monster for another. But is he? Being in close proximity to each other means that they both spend more time in each others company. Are you wondering what is coming next? Where this story is going?

Even I can’t tell you. All I know is I see past the hard and evil facade Stefan presents to the world. Especially when it comes to Gabriela. She may say she hates him, but as a woman, I know different. Haha! Their story continues in the next book by this author which will be coming to you soon. All I will say is… Wow! I for one, cannot wait.

A note for the author. I can honestly say it’s been a while since I’ve read a book that hooked me, reeled me in and held me captivated from start to end and then left me wanting more. Congratulations to you. A well-deserved 5 stars.

“Turn around, Gabriela.”She turns.I look at her, at the exposed expanse of flawless skin. Flawless but for those marks I know are hidden by the silky material of the dress.The straps of the dress are thin, spaghetti straps. The patterned deep blue falls to just above her knees.When I look up, I meet her gaze in the mirror. She’s unblinking. On alert.I’m not an inexperienced man, but there’s something about this petulant, defiant girl, my unwilling bride-to-be because when I shift my gaze down again, down to the naked skin of her back, to the curve of her spine and swell of her hips, my cock stirs.I reach out, touch the silk, push it wider so I see more of her.“What—”“Don’t move.”

I run my knuckles softly over her warm skin, feel the goosebumps rise as I trail my hand down, then up again, fingertips light along each vertebra. When I reach her hair, I lift the mass of it, feel the weight as I set it over her shoulder. It’s not long, it was once, but it’s not anymore. Just a little past her shoulders. But still, to see it like this, the dark, sleek mass soft over one shoulder, her back more fully exposed, it awakens something inside me. A thing that wants to claim. To mark as my own.

I lean down, bring my mouth to the curve of her neck and meet her eyes as I kiss it.

Her breathing is shallow, and she watches me as I run the scruff of my jaw along the line of her shoulder then back. She shudders and I inhale her scent, kiss the curve again, opening my mouth this time to taste her, to bite, just a little. To hear her breath catch as she gasps and to watch her eyes darken as the pupils dilate.

I run my fingers down the length of her arms, lightly circle her wrists because she’s going to fight me in a minute.

“You said something the other night, Gabriela. Something about putting my mark on you.”

I was right. She tries to pull free but I tighten my hold on her.

“Let me go, Stefan.”

“No.”

“Please, just—”

“You were right. Your body is mine. But thing is, I want the rest too. Your mind. Your past. Your secrets. Your soul. I’ll take it all.
 

 


DAMAGE: Collateral Damage Duet #2, releasing 15th October

We’re a match made in hell, Stefan and I.

He took me to exact his revenge. I went from being a pawn to my father to being a pawn to Stefan. The only difference is I have a ring the size of a boulder on my finger and a husband I don’t want.

And the hardest part is I thought he was different. I thought I was falling in love.

I guess my father was right. I’m not a very smart girl.

Stefan is a powerful man. He doesn’t play nice, not if you’re his enemy. But I’ve learned one thing about my husband.

He takes care of what’s his.

And I am his.

His enemies have become my enemies, but he’ll never let anyone hurt me. He’s fiercely protective. It’s the predator inside that scares me.
