Publisher's Summary

I was born a monster. Cruelty ran in my veins like poison. It ran in the veins of every Vitiello man, passed on from father to son, an endless spiral of monstrosity. A born monster shaped into an even worse monster by my father’s blade and fists and harsh words. I was raised to become Capo, to rule without mercy, to dish out brutality without a second thought. Raised to break others. 

When Aria was given to me in marriage, everyone waited with baited breath to see how fast I’d break her like my father broke his women. How I’d crush her innocence and kindness with the force of my cruelty.

Breaking her would have taken little effort. It came naturally to me.

I was gladly the monster everyone feared. Until her.

Author's note: Bound by Honor in Luca's POV.

Fastest 10 hours ever

This book flew by... that's how much I must have gotten lost in the story. It was over before I knew it. Wow. I haven't read the POV of Aria,... now I'm curious. But I am confident, if you only listen to one POV.... always go with Sebastian York. Always.

His view on the son of a mafia boss in an arranged married with a very sheltered woman was a great listen. Often these characters aren't given a POV and you are left wondering to their motivations and actions. Are there any redeeming qualities or not? I liked hearing his thoughts.

All of what I would want in a male POV mafia!

Thumbs up for this guilty pleasure of an audio! I am a huge fan of mafia romance and it's refreshing to have a full male POV story. The female side always tends to have the same insecurities, plot and leaves the Male's perspective very much hanging. With this story I feel I got the full effect of what could have been the female lead's struggle and POV while keeping in the head of the Male character. Sebastia York is all of the things that I love about him in this story. Gruff, alpha, sexy and naughty! He performs these stories so well that one can't help but grin and enjoy his voice as only he can deliver certain lines and tones. This is a delicious SebYo buffet and very much worth a credit. Loved it!! Now on to Mateo's story.

I ATE UP EVERY DELICIOUS 5 ⭐️ BOOK AVAILABLE ❤️

For over a week I’ve been totally immersed in, and absolutely obsessed with, this warring Mafia world of dangerous alphas and their layered lives. With their family dynamics, with the various threats, with their protective natures, loyalties and customs, with their arranged marriages and with the brutal challenges when the Chicago Outfit, the New York Famiglia and the Las Vegas Cammora simmer, spill blood, torture and go to war. They are all layered dark love stories with emotional push n pulls, friction, fireworks, sexcapades and character growth as Capos and Made Men bend for the women they’ve each struggled and fought their attraction to. Their Blood Oath forever binds them to the Mafia brotherhood above all else.. but the right woman will get inside their walls, make them human, make them fall in love and they will become more cherished than even their Oaths.

And in this story Luca, who is next in line to be Capo of the NY Famiglia, has agreed to an arranged marriage with a shy sheltered eighteen year old virgin who will test his patience, bring him to the edge of madness in further books and settle him like no one else can. However, it isn’t going to be easy, their journey will have cavernous potholes to bridge and there will be a minefield of emotional bombs to step around. But what develops is a wonderful devotion, a touching heartfelt tenderness, a possessive obsessive romance with chemistry and sex.. and a beautiful love is forged. In this well-paced book, Cora Reilly’s fantastic world-building is told from Luca‘s POV.. this is Book 0 - book 1 is the same events told from Aria’s POV - but I suggest you skip it because the narrator was the wrong choice.

Worth a credit? Each and every book AFTER book 1 is action-packed, riveting, well-written, suspense-filled, climactic and yes, IMO, very creditworthy. Some I loved more than others, some overlap their storylines, some move the years on and some hit hard. However, they all pack a punch, they all delivered more than I was looking for in a good Mafia love story, every POV has a great narrator (except book 1) who brings the characters, the never-ending friction and the feels to life.. and every - single - one entertained and frayed my senses in some way.

It was okay

Why is everyone so in love with Sebastian York? He is very average but I am really upset that he can't read. Aria's sisters name is Gianna as I didn't know this until I saw some of the written book. Gianna is pronounced like Tiana or Briana he pronounced it Johnna. A simple name. Really! Anyway the book was just okay.

Great Narration by Sebastian York.

This was a great book made even better (if THAT is even possible) by the awesome narration of Sebastian York. He sounds just like I’d picture Luca to sound like. This was terrific. 10 hrs 29 mins of heaven.

Aria and Luca

OMG - so good. Initially, I felt sorry for Luca and his brother Mateo for having a horrible father who treated them and his wife terribly including beating all of them. Then Luca turned into a pretty cruel adult who carried out some really gruesome murders. He was forced into an arranged marriage to the virgin daughter, Aria, from another crime family. Shortly after his marriage, he continues to meet up with his mistress Grace, who was pretty bad herself because she wanted Luca to marry her. She tried to break up his marriage by arranging for his new wife to catch him in the middle of having s&x with her (dumb on his part). She tried to hurt Aria again by having her drugged and arranged for a man to rape Aria. Good thing Luca had security on her. We know the cruel punishment the man received but I wanted him to take care of Grace too for causing it. She was upset with him because after his wife caught him, he remained faithful to her and never called Grace again. Sebastian York was outstanding as Luca.

Repetitive.

Ok, how many times must Luca point out that he would never treat his wife the way everyone else in this book treats their wives. That HIS wife is so special. But still he treats women he just fucks like shit. But his ohhhlalaaa virgin wife must be shown the upmost respect. Sorry but it just became silly after the constant blabbering about his wife this and that. And his father...a tad over the top caricature mobster monster.

Sinfully sexy and full of danger.

If ever there was a definition of an alpha a-hole it would be Luca Vitiello. He’s a capo in the making and everything to be feared and desired.
This book was sinfully sexy and full of danger and suspense and I couldn’t get enough.
I’ve marked down stars because I found the heroine’s character to be lacking for something I can’t really place. I’m not one for character bashing but she was standing up to the would be Capo, her arranged marriage husband since she was 15 and the next she was telling him she wasn’t ready to consummate their marriage.
Sebastian York as always delivers to perfection and it gets that this is Luca’s story but even a epilogue PoV from Aria would have earned a full 5 star rating.

disappointing

The narration was great, what there was of the story could have been good but was spoilt by the constant sex scenes and descriptions. These quickly became very repetitive and by half way through, they became damn annoying- so much so I fast forwarded most times as it was the same old lengthy scenes, sometimes going beyond 10 mins. Dont get me wrong, I like sex, but when it is constant descriptive scenes it becomes monotonous. I would say at least 60% of the story was a sexual and the actual storyline was very short indeed. I had already bought the follow on book, but if it starts in the same way I'll return it. A shame as could have been much better.

A good story

This story ticks all the boxes. Good character development, good back story and good narration. The difference between the MC's life in the firm and his private life, is a little hard to believe, but it makes a good yarn.

OMG!!!! Sebastian York is perfect as Luca!!!!

I absolutely loved this story when I read the book, but hearing the characters brought to life by Sebastian York was incredible, he is growly and confident and alpha and just perfect. Everything that Luca is was carried across in Sebastians voice cannot believe how hot this was!!!!!

I Loved this audiobook cannot rate it enough stars, this epically explosive story in Luca’s POV is amazing and hearing it told by The HOTTEST voice I’ve ever heard was AMAZING!!!!!
