Amazon Universal: myBook.to/Dominic
I was the boy who would never be king. The monster who could never be loved.
Gia was just a job. Just another girl caught in a world of monsters.
It didn’t matter that I liked the look of her.
I didn’t care that she cringed when she saw my soul.
I liked it.
I liked her fear.
And I wanted her.
Monsters didn’t get to live happily ever after, though. I knew one day I’d have to go back. Because time neither forgave nor forgot.
And neither did I.
Old debts needed to be settled. Enemies punished. It was past time I returned to the family business. I’d been gone far too long.
All my life, I believed in fairy tales. Not the Disney kind. Never those. I always knew life was darker than that.
I was the daughter of a foot soldier. The sister of a snitch. A nobody.
Monsters had been part of my life for as long as I could remember, but none as dark as Dominic Benedetti. None as cruel. None as broken.
I had no illusions about what he was. I had no desire to save his soul. And I couldn’t care about his bleeding heart.
But love isn’t always beautiful. It could be a twisted, ugly bitch.
I’d always known this was the kind I’d find. The only kind that could touch me.
Because some of us, we belonged in the dark.
And Dominic and I belonged in the dark.
Author’s Note: Dominic is a steamy standalone romance. He is the ultimate Anti-Hero, so be prepared for a crazy, rough ride. To fully understand Dominic’s actions, I recommend reading the first book in the Benedetti Brothers duet, Salvatore.
This book is intended for mature readers. No cliffhanger and no cheating.
5+ ‘You play, you pay’ stars
The author outdid herself in this dark suspense romance. I loved loved loved this book. I am a true fan girl of dark erotica. The darker the better. Dominic: a Dark Mafia Romanceis beyond dark. I’m still feeling awed and terribly shaken to the core!
Gia comes across as a girl who’s really strong, determined as hell and brave. Her life changes as she’s captured and trained for auction by Dominic, a dark, handsome, but cruel and devious man. We know Gia is special and her fate is in the hands of evil. The auction isn’t the only danger. Both Gia and Dominic find themselves between the dangers of the Mafia they have no way out except to find the answers they’re looking for.
In this dirty, heart stopping, emotional and amazing read, a woman finds herself in an unthinkable situation where a remote cabin becomes her prison, and one man will discover that he has finally come up against someone unlike any of those he has destroyed before.
“Gia was my match. My perfect match. I was right when I’d told her she was like me. She hated like me. And I trusted she’d do what she promised. She’d end me once this was finished. I’d help her get her revenge. And then I’d be finished.” ~ Dominic
“Because it had been in those darkest moments, that love had crept in and tethered us together, tighter than any chains could. It had been in that darkness that beauty seemed to want to find us most.”~ Gia
The twists and turns throughout this book kept me on the edge of my seat, shouting at characters, and feeling for Gia. I love when a book can do that to me. The sex is hot, heavy, mind blowing!! Gia’s obvious arousal in captivity perverts her conscience and she wonders if she is losing a bit of her soul and dignity, bit by bit, every time she wantonly and willingly succumbs to Dominic.
The book is written in dual POV which allows us to really see what each of them are thinking and feeling. Natasha Knight writes with such a talent, she makes the words flow right off the page and takes you into her characters’ world. Gia is so broken in this story from all the stuff she has been forced to endure, but Dominic tries so hard to save her. I loved reading every word of this book and will more than likely read it all over again.
This was a completely captivating read. You should read it. You won’t be able to move away from it till you finish every word.

Don’t miss out on Salvatore!
It all started with a contract signed by him, then by me, while our families watched. While my father sat silent, a man defeated, giving his daughter to the Benedetti monsters.
I obeyed. I played my part. I signed my name and gave away my life. I became their living, breathing trophy, a constant symbol of their power over us.
That was five years ago.
Then came the time for him to claim me. For Salvatore Benedetti to own me.
I had vowed vengeance. I had learned hate. And yet, nothing could have prepared me for the man who now ruled my life.
I expected a monster, one I would destroy. But nothing is ever black or white. No one is either good or evil. For all his darkness, I saw his light. For all his evil, I saw his good. As much as he made me hate him, a passion hotter than the fires of hell burned inside me.
I was his, and he was mine.
My very own monster.
I owned the DeMarco Mafia Princess. She belonged to me now. We had won, and they had lost. And what better way to teach a lesson than to take from them that which is most precious? Most beloved?
I was the boy who would be king. Next in line to rule the Benedetti Family. Lucia DeMarco was the spoils of war. Mine to do with as I pleased.
It was my duty to break her. To make her life a living hell. My soul was dark, I was hell bound. And there was no way out, not for either of us. Because the Benedetti family never lost, and in our wake, we left destruction. It’s how it had always been. How I believed it would always be.
Author’s Note: Salvatore and Lucia’s story is a steamy standalone romance with a happily-ever-after. No cliffhanger and no cheating. It is intended for mature readers.
