Publisher's Summary

Scarlett 

Cristiano is my enemy. He’s also the only man with whom I’ve ever felt safe. Protected. 

But I have to remember that he married me with one purpose in mind. Revenge. I would be the bridge to his real enemies. 

I can’t let myself forget that he isn’t the hero of this story. His hands are covered in blood. I saw that with my own eyes. 

Cristiano 

I thought I knew Scarlett’s past, but I didn’t know anything. 

I thought I knew the worst of monsters, but I hadn’t seen anything yet. 

Sometimes, you have to lie to yourself to survive. 

Sometimes, it’s those closest to you who will bury their knives in your back. 

Too many times it’s the innocents who pay for your mistakes. For your refusal to see. 

I can’t let Scarlett pay for mine.

But I may be too late to stop it.

DARK ~ DRAMA-FILLED ~ SUSPENSEFUL & MY KRYPTONITE

Well Ms Knight, you sure didn’t hold anything back with this second compelling book in your thrilling and chilling dark Duet.. it ends in happily ever afters, but wow.. wow.. wow this couple had to go through some rough and dangerous times getting there. It’s ALL action, full stream, high octane drama and intrigue that doesn’t slow as the well-written unique plot leads you down some unexpected dark alleys.. alleys where evil monsters slither waiting for another innocent soul to sell. And gripped it had me.. shocked and intrigued I definitely was.. and I held my breath as I rooted for the changed hero to save the day again and again whilst telepathically sending him encouragement and mentally giving a strong heroine a high-five for every time she stands back up and for every single deserved blow she manages to give back.

As Scarlett and Cristiano became closer in the previous book, their unwanted attraction turned to flames which burned red hot, changed a predator and his captive and they both fell in love. But, in this book, betrayal has ripped Scarlett away from Cristiano’s side.. now he’s a possessive protective husband, an enraged destructive force on a mission. A blinded by rage mission to get his stolen wife back.. no matter the cost to himself. Cristiano’s revenge to seek the monster who killed his Mother, and to find out what the cryptic last words were whispered in her ear before her throat was cut in front of his eyes, has been Cristiano’s only focus in life for so long.. until Scarlett. And that has given the Puppet-master, who’s been behind the scenes pulling all the strings, time.. time to plan the best of ends for him.. and the most wicked of ends for Scarlett De La Cruz.

Cristiano has the weight of the world on his shoulders, he keeps so many people safe.. and the most heartfelt promise was to keep Scarlett, his love and redemption, safe. Vengeance and death has been his driving force.. but now it’s a race against time to find the woman he loves above all else.. but watch your back Cristiano because peace and salvation won’t last long. Then it’ll take all your strength to plough through the shocking revelations, the emotional and physical blows and rescue the other part of your soul. .. And Scarlett, well she’ll have to witness dark atrocities, endure pain and brutal punishments, find a lost flower in a den of despair and fight whenever she can.. even though she knows this is her end.

Worth a credit? It was a tense and thrilling story.. there’s sex and passion, shivers and suspense and love does eventually conquer all.. it’s my kryptonite and yes, it’s very creditworthy. Great dual POV narration too by Kai and Wen which brings it all to life and makes a very exciting and enjoyable five star listen. But warning❗️.. this is a dark story and there’s a brutal back-door rape scene.

Scarlett and Cristiano - part 2

Cristiano has now become a protective husband who is falling in love with his wife. Big trouble is on the horizon with his family. Cristiano has to be forced to open his eyes to see it and who. Hopefully Scarlett will redeem him but she is taken again. This book was darker than the first book and has a lot of suspense. They had to fight really hard for their happily ever after. There needs to be another book to catch up with this couple and Dante. It would also be nice to find out what happens to Maura. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott did a great job with the narration.

OK story.

There was predictability with future events, some immediate. There were alot of missed opportunities to enhance the story with amounts of time just skipped over that could have helped create a better story with more detail. It was plain. Fairly linear without unforseen 'I didn't see that coming' moments. Some characters mentioned frequently, almost over emphasized so you knew what to expect. Not as creative as I hoped from this author. There were moments that I was quite disappointed much effort wasn't given to the characters ability to plan and think the situation thru, as though they were beginning mobsters/criminals who had NO past influence/experience. And what exactly were they doing to be successful monetarily while waiting to extract revenge and find out what his last words were to her??...something mentioned with frequency that when revealed, was just a moment of,..
finally it's been said. So much lead up it was almost anticlimactic. I'm a big fan of mafia romance and will give this author another try as many have recommended her work. And I have enjoyed her collaborative work, perhaps I'll go that route. The female narrator helped with this story.

Great conclusion

This was a great conclusion to this duet. There was so much suspense and getting revenge. Some of the big problems were not solved which I hop will come in a new series staring Dante. Scarlett and Christianos once they said those key words to each other it’s was over for everyone else.

Love the love

I don’t love this much separation of a couple in a romance novel, even dark mafia romance. I would have preferred shorter portions of angst, but hey - that’s this sort of genre so it’s probably just me. Christiano is an amazing hero .... love his character 100%

Good second part but....

This book took alot of twist and turns. The end of the story felt rush and unfinished. What happened to Elizabeth? Is Dante going to recovery and look for Elizabeth? I hope there will be another book in Dante POV. Overall a good listen it just lost me at the end.

Full on drama

It's difficult to find another author who can load a story with tension, drama, action, and romance like Ms Knight does. The icing on the cake is the superb dual narration by Kennicott and Ross, who voice the words with soul and passion. Seat belt required.

Brilliant

WOW great conclusion to Christiano and Scarlett 's story. This duet was a sexy thrilling fast paced whirlwind with twists you certainly didn't see coming. The narration is superb they make the book twice as good, I think narration can definitely make the book. I was sorry that its finished. Can't wait for Dante and Mara's story and hopefully the end of slimey Felix but I'm not giving any spoilers because it will ruin the books for you. I can definitely say that this was one terrific listen and have thoroughly enjoyed both books and looking forward to more, more, more.

Enjoyed but with caveats

There were a few obvious loose ends which left me a little unhappy. I can only assume there will be a continuation story with another couple, otherwise I would classify this story as incomplete.
