A Bookworm Review by Ana
I give this book 5 stars!
Love will re-write your story… Just trust your heart.
Have a look at the blurb:
There once was a girl who was sold to the devil. The devil ruined her. Destroyed her. Turned her into his pretty, broken girl.
But then her savior came. Her king. He pulled her from hell and cloaked her with his darkness—a darkness that hid her from the devil who wanted his pretty, broken girl back.
By saving her soul and stealing her heart, he managed to put all the broken pieces back together, and she finally found the strength to rise from the ashes.
Brave, fierce, dauntless, ready to slay the devil when he comes for her—and he will come— that girl became a fighter.
She became a queen.
And that girl…is me.
Bella J has created the perfect series for me to read. As you know, I love to read MC books as well as Mafia books and guess… This series, like the name entitled, it’s a mafia one… And a darn good book…
Bella J is, in my opinion, the Mafia Queen. Her books are to die for and her writing is intense, dark and hot at the same time.
Mafia Queen is her latest release and keeps telling the stories of Antonio and Alessia aka Doe.
But let me tell you something. This book is not a standalone therefore you need to read Mafia King first. But if you really want a perfect inside of this series you should read Mafia Princess, Mafia Prince, Mafia King and finally Mafia Queen.
Trust me that you will love this series. And each cover is even more stunning than the other.
I was so nervous to start this book, nervous because I knew darkness would surround it but we will get some light as well?
Sublime, intense, intoxicated… So many words that crossed my mind once this book was over. After reading the words “The End” I was shaking. I was crying. I was a bunch of stuff at the same time.
I was happy for the way this story progressed but sad because it was over.
Superb plot, super engaging, dark and intense. I can’t describe how much I love this book. How much the story sliced my heart open and glued it back together.
I can’t tell you more because I refuse to spoil but I will tell you one thing. This is, by far, the best mafia series I have ever read. And I do love a good mafia book.
Bella nailed it with this series and this last book was the cherry on top of the cake.
Once I started to read this book I realized that I wasn’t going to be able to stop. So much needed to be said, to be explained that made me read non stop.
I’m so glad for the chance to read this and I can’t wait for more.
Yes, you heard me. More. I want more. So much more.
Oh Bella. What can I say that I haven’t already said?
Nothing. Nessuno… Not a word. Just that you are amazing and an artist.
Thank you for these characters. Thank you for this series. And I can’t wait to read another work from you.
A Few Teasers:
I stepped closer, my reflection in the mirror becoming clearer. The woman I saw earlier was gone. There was no trace of her in the picture before me. Instead, I saw someone else. Someone I had dreamed about for so long. Every night while locked in my cage, waiting to be hurt, waiting for my body to be defiled again and again, I dreamed of this woman. A strong woman. A fierce woman. A woman brave and tough enough to punish those who deserved it. And finally, here she was, in the mirror, staring back at me.
I closed my eyes, and I saw his face. The way blood poured from his body like a fountain of justice. His eyes glazed over, his skin pale, and mouth open while he choked on his own blood. I leaned my head to the side, and I could still hear the gurgling sounds that came from his throat. It was the same sound I heard the night Master V slit the throat of the girl I chose to share my food with. The same night he cut off my ear, mutilating me. And just like the man I killed tonight, her mouth fell open as well while she tried to gasp for air until…her dead body fell to the ground.
The more I thought about that night, the more I started to smile. Because of me, the man whose throat I slit tonight felt that girl’s pain. He experienced the same death as that poor girl. It felt good, thinking about it that way. There wasn’t an ounce of regret anywhere inside me. Only relief…because justice was served.
When the door slammed shut behind me, I opened my eyes and stared straight at
Antonio’s reflection in the mirror.
He was standing behind me, his eyes wild and dark. Our gazes remained locked as we watched each other in the mirror in front of me. After what happened tonight, I didn’t once think about the repercussions I would have to face when it came to Antonio. My master. I was too high on the adrenaline, the power…the bloodlust. But now the high was
gone, and uncertainty had taken its place.
“You killed a man.”
“I know. He wanted—”
“How did it feel?” He took a step closer.
I licked my lips. “I don’t—”
“Speak the truth, Doe. How did it feel?”
I swallowed, watching him as he moved closer, one calculated step at a time. There was no use denying it. The way he kept my gaze, his eyes cold and hard, he already knew the answer to his question. It was written in the stone expression on my face, I was sure.
He stopped right behind me, breathing down my neck. “How. Did. It. Feel?”
I leaned back against his chest and closed my eyes. “It felt…good.”
