Book Review Express Review Corner brings you
“Blood and Secrets” Book 1 in The Calvetti Family Series by Rose Harper. (review below)
Take a walk on the wild side with Blood and Secrets. Lovers of Meghan March’s Mount series, Amo Jones’ Devils Own Series and The Elite Kings Club, and Tillie Cole’s Scared Souls series will lose themselves in this story of all-consuming passion, vengence, and dark dealings.
Don’t miss the first installment in a deliciously, seductive new series from author Rose Harper.
I’m dangerous. Calculated. Bloodthirsty.
The perfect motherfucking trifecta of crazy.
The name’s Mateo Calvetti, and Brooklyn belongs to me.
My reach knows no bounds, and I always get what I want.
Including the little gem currently twisting my insides.
She’s been promised to me since birth.
Nothing anyone says will change that.
She will be mine, whether she wants it or not.
I’m going to own her. Consume her. Fuck, I may even keep her.
Yet, something comes to light I never expected in my wildest dreams.
Blood, secrets, and lies all fall around my feet.
Carina Ricci isn’t what she claims to be.
It appears she’s just as fucked up as me.
Come on, baby, let’s make them scream.
Let’s show them what happens when you anger a King and his Queen.
This is volume 1 in Blood and Secrets, and is not suitable for anyone under 18. Some portions of this will be hard to read, so be warned before continuing onward. If you do decide to read, Blood and Secrets #1, just remember: The author is not responsible for any kindle’s being set ablaze from the raw passion and heated moments between a king and his queen.
Just WOW! Blood & Secrets is a wonderfully written first installment to Mateo and Carina’s story. The author has done a wonderful job of writing a storyline that will keep you on edge and guessing from start to finish.
Carina has no clue that she is being groomed to become Mateo’s wife and rule an empire at his side. Mateo has no clue why his father is forcing him to marry a girl he’s never met. He only knows that marrying Carina will bring an alliance for their family with “Reap”. We know little about “Reap” at this point other that he’s powerful and feared by all.
Carina has been all but tortured by her parents as they have attempted to “train” her to be the perfect wife for Mateo. But when they go to far and she mentally breaks Mateo steps in and moves her to his home to “train” her himself (I must say I am not fond of his methods either). But things don’t go quite like he plans. Especially when Carina starts to get her memories back; memories of who and what she is. What does that mean for her future and those around her?
This is a very interesting and intriguing storyline and I am anxiously waiting the next installment. I can’t wait to see exactly what Carina has in store for those that have wronged her, including Mateo! 2 Thumbs Up for a great read, one I highly recommend.
Rose Harper is a mother of two, avid coffee drinker, and thrives on bringing tantalizing, downright shiver inducing books for her readers to devour. She’s a lover of dark, sizzling passion, and mystery filled stories with twists and turns you never see coming, yet leave you wanting more.
