Publisher's Summary

Gabriela

Stefan Sabbioni showed up uninvited in my bedroom on my 16th 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.

Bring it on!

Some authors bring it with every release, and no matter what book I have listened to, Natasha Knight consistently brings it on! This first book in the Collateral Damage series is amazing. It's not your typical mafia romance! Stefan Sabbioni has seeking some revenge on the Marchese family, and what better way than to marry Gabriela? This story is full of intrigue, heartbreak, and a slow burn that is smoldering! Knight with her intricate plots includes so much, weaving a plot that kept me coming back for more. The family dynamic is brutal, one minute thinking there may be hope, only to hear something so tragic, it breaks your heart. Gabriela is a strong willed woman, and promises to be an evenly matched adversary to Stefan, though he is much more confident in his abilities. Stefan, though dark and brooding has a compassionate side that we are seeing glimpses of. The story leaves us on a major cliffhanger, just ramping up the anticipation for the next book in the series! I can't wait to see where these two end up, and how they get there. There is going to be some major shakedowns and I am excited!

Knight casts her stories with care, and this team chosen could not have been better picked. Wen Ross can be the romantic alpha, and in the next breath, give Stefan an evilness not rivaled by any other. He adds in that occasional chuckle that is swoonworthy! Mackenzie Cartwright adds so much to depth to Gabriela. I love her way of adding attitude and fierceness to her personality without losing the naivete! It's so good!

Audiobook Obsession Reviewer

Gabriela is the daugther of the man who wronged Stefan a mob boss, her father isn't a good man, he's abusive to her. Stefan plans to use her as revenge but she's underage when all of this went down. When Gabriela is of age she's off to another household where her husband to be is, one cage for another. But when she and Stefan are together Gabriela sees a different side. Will Stefan get his revenge? What will happen in the next book?

Great Mafia Story

I really enjoyed this story. It’s the first book of two. Typical arranged marriage mafia story but with a twist. Not quite sure who’s the bad guy. Ends with a great cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read book 2!

Mafia Sham Marriage!

Collateral (An Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance) is swirling with danger, Scrumptiously dark & twisted, a intensely captivating narrative that is entertainingly gingerly. I've become addicted to this authors audio's and I love her writing style and the way she writes mafia. Complex characters, bounteous suspense, mystery, secrets, entwined with angst and deceit.
This ends with a cliffhanger that is a rippling tide creating a vortex affect. Only good thing is that it won't be too long for the 2nd audio in this duet to be available.


Narators: Wen Ross, Mackenzie Cartwright perfect naration lay bare a persuasive performance bringing the narrative & characters to reality. Mackenzie's portrayal of Gabriela had plenty of depth and vocalized with the right sentiments. Wen Ross deep intoxicating intonation is like living in paradise. Just so relaxing.

I have not gotten my fill!

I have become a huge Natasha Knight addict. When I was given the opportunity to listen to Collateral I jumped all over it! Especially when I saw who the narrators were. I love them both!

Wen Ross is one of my favorites, he does an amazing job with all the fine details! And Mackenzie Cartwright did an amazing job with Natasha’s Taken and Torn!

I’ll start off by saying that an age gap with the heroine is only 18 can sometimes turn me away from the story. However, with everything Gabriela has endured during those 18 years of her life, I have to admit that she is definitely older than she should be.

Natasha does a great job with Gabriela’s character and making sure the reader doesn’t feel uncomfortable with her being with Stefan.

Stefan is also a very complex character that Natasha took great care in developing and making sure we are rooting for this anti-hero.

I have not gotten enough of these characters and this story. I am DYING for Damage to be in my hands right now!

I found myself eagerly awaiting what was gonna happen around the corner. So looking forward to the next book. Loved Wen Ross & Mackenzie Cartwright narrating. They did an absolutely amazing job of bringing the characters to life.

Holy Cliffhanger Batman!!!

First of all, how this is my first ever story by Natasha Knight, I have no idea! This story is on the darker side, but I am in it for the long haul with Stefan and Gabriela. He is a total alpha and definitely controlling, but I'm betting we will get to see more of different side of him in the continuation. Gabriela, hmm, I am hoping you figure things out because you are obviously missing the bigger picture!! Loved the narration from Mackenzie Cartwright and Wen Ross, they were everything <3

Perfect & Brilliant performance by narrators!

4.5 Stars!!

Wen Ross & Mackenzie Cartwright's performance is outstanding. They brought the characters to life in such an amazing, and palpable way, that at times I thought I was watching a movie. So, in performance Collateral gets from me 5 Stars!!

The story is captivating, intense and entertaining. However, I would have given it a perfect score if childish Gabriela hadn't been showing her face so much, since what makes me liked her in the first place was that she seems to be fierce, feisty, and mature for her young age. So, the story gets 4.5 Stars from me.

I highly recommend this audiobook, I just loved it, and can't wait to listen to the next audiobook!!

Who to Trust

Collateral by Natasha Knight is fantastic! Mafia romance is a favorite genre of mine, and this book has everything. I loved the twists the author wrote, Gabriella and Stefan were intriguing and endearing. Revealing the monster was so well done. This book has a great suspenseful ending, and I can't wait to listen to the conclusion. Wen Ross and Mackenzie Cartwright were magical bringing the characters to life. I could feel their emotions and tension. Thank you Audiobook Obsession for this book! I loved it!

Phenomenal!

Gosh, what can I say to do this justice other than this was so completely phenomenal! Natasha Knight has become one of my favorite authors. She just knows how to wrap a story that is the perfect amount of dark, steam, suspense and jaw dropping moments that have you so riveted. And don't get me started on the narrators' performance. They were just exceptional. I cannot wait for more!

Sins of the Father

I loved the story from start from finish. Ms. Knight always know how to draw on your emotions. Narration was on point. Gabriela is caught up a situation not of her making. Something dark that grows deep. Stefan is my alpha. I cannot put into words how i enjoyed this book.

Wow! <3

Wow what a story! I was hooked soon as I started listening to this tale from Natasha Knight. The Narrators did a brilliant job bringing this griping story to life.

I am 100% and wanting the next instalment now as this part had so much going on. It was hard to tell who to trust or how this tale is going to play out.

Good Listen

When she was 16, Stefan told her that she would be his. Now she is 18 and he is back to claim what he says is precious. Now she is his and he protects what is his from all enemies including her family. Full of emotions and secrets.

So intense!!

Wow, just wow! This is one super intense book! With all the secrets, the alpha males and strong but broken female MC there is just so much going on! Then it all ends on a huge cliffhanger!! Now I'm off to snag book 2!

Wen and Mackenzie totally rock the narration on this book. They are both fantastic narrators and their performances are perfection.

Love a twisted story

Gabriella and Stefan story begins here in book 1 in a very non traditional way. In this story we have both mafia ties and arrange marriage. This story hooks you in from the GetGo in the end is definitely twisted great leading up to book two to sing what's going to happen. As for the narrators I love having to narrators one doing the male the other doing the female part. I like the dual narration I feel like it's easier to connect to the different characters and having gender specific narrators to those characters I feel like it just makes a better fit. overall I really enjoyed this book and I can't wait to see what happens next.
