Blood and Vows (Twisted Duet Book 2) by Bella J.

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Blood & Vows

Dark Mafia Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Darkness can show you the light you seek…

Have a look at the blurb:

He still owns me.

His wicked touch ruins me, corrupts me into wanting things I shouldn’t. Now I’m no longer an unwilling prisoner, but rather an eager participant.

The need for ecstasy, and the burn to be consumed by my captor makes it impossible for me to hate him. I know I should, but I can’t. Not when my body obeys him so willingly.

But the tables have turned, and a strong family now stands divided. Castello’s determination to keep me for himself started a war.

The war of brothers.

The war of blood.

In the end, only one will survive.

OMG OMG OMG…. It’s here… It’s here… Oh boy… I’m about to burst….
Bella J has a permanent place in my heart because not only is she an amazing writer but also an amazing friend. I haven’t met her in person yet but just by texting her and following her facebook account she’s always there.
Blood & Vows is her latest release and it’s the second book from the A Twisted Duet… And what a duet…
But I must tell you something… This duet is not a standalone therefore you must read Blood and Lies first and only then grab this one.
This new book continues to tell Tatum and Castello’s story…
I’m speechless right now… I’m stunned… My head is spinning… What… How…When…
Superb plot, super engaging, intense and surrounded with a thick layer of darkness… Dayum…
This book was the perfect ending to an amazing duet.
It had darkness, crime, madness, deceive, betrayal as well as love, loyalty, family bonds, hope and some dark and twisted hot scenes… Just the way I like it.
There were parts of the book that I wanted to scream my head off and cry so freaking hard… But there were others that I saw myself wanting to hold the mains characters and promised them better days.
Do you know that nagging feeling telling you that nothing is what it seems? Well let just say that… I can’t say more… I can’t and I refuse to spoil.
But I can guarantee you that if you want to read a duet, filled with darkness as well as desire just grab this one… And once you finish it go have a look at this amazing author mafia series “Royal Mafia”… Just go for it and get ready…
Bella… Bella… Bella… What the hell are you trying to do to me? Give me an heart attack? Put me in a loony bin?? You almost succeeded but I can’t go down now… Lol… I need more… More books… Please…

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Blood & Lies

Dark Mafia Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

The beginning to the end….

Have a look at the blurb:

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. All it took was one bullet and I went from Capo to Boss within the blink of an eye.

The hate, it’s toxic. Addictive. Deadly.

The cost? Her life.

This war started with her…and it will end with her blood on my hands.

Oh my lord… How can I keep my sanity? How?
This author is the creator of the best mafia series I have ever read so you can guess the way I felt when this book appeared on my kindle…
I was nervous but super excited as well. So many questions appeard on my mind…
Bella J is the author that I’m talking about. Her books are perfect and you need to read them.
Blood & Lies is her latest release and it’s the first book from the A Twisted Duet.
This new book explores the lifes of Castello and Tatum.
Castello lost his brother in a tragic way and after that he has only one goal. To avenge his death and revenge to the person responsible for it. But what would you expect of a mafia boss?
Tatum had the life she wanted. Parties and a boyfriend. Until one day she wakes up a prisoner…
I’m stunned, speechless to say the least.
I knew what I was about to get but let me tell you… It was so much more… So much more.
Sublime plot, very well written, super dark, intense and dangerous. Each chapter was even more intense than the other.
Dayum… I’m still shaking.
I knew that this story would be chaotic, dark and dangerous. It was like I can’t look but I can’t take my eyes out of it, insane right?
This book presented us with danger, madness, crime, deceive as well as desire, family bonds, loyalty and so much more.
I’m still trying to find the perfect word… But I can’t. I can’t say anything more because I refuse to spoil.
But one thing is for certain… I’m mad… But also happy…
Happy because this was the perfect start to an amazing dark series but I’m mad because it’s over…
Bella J… Why? Why? Where’s the rest of this? Can you give it to me now?
Please? It would be our little secret… Lol. Please don’t take long.

TheGift_FINAL_V3 (1) (1)


Oh my lord… I was waiting for this book for so long that I thought I would go bananas…
The impact the first book had in me made eager to read the next one.
SR Jones has a way with words that will hook you up… It happened to me and I had only read one book.
Her writing is raw, wild, dark and with so much feelings and emotions in between… I can’t say enough to make her justice.
The Hit is the third book from the Bratva Vows series and you must read the prequel The Trap and then The  Gift. It’s imperative that you read them because if you don’t you will not be able to understand this book.
This book keeps telling us Andrius and Violet’s story…
As you know Violet was gifted to Andrius by a Mafia Lord. A gift Andrius didn’t wanted but kept it.
But things have happened and now…
OMG why? Why? Why? I want more… Please… More…
I’m in love. This series nailed it and left me wanting to know more about a few characters that are mentioned in this book. The need to know how? Why? When? I have a bunch of questions that need answers.
Amazing plot, super engaging, hot, wild and dark.
It was amazing the way this story progressed because it left me wanting to keep reading and reading.
How can someone have so much deamons and be able to fight them all?
This book presented us with love, loyalty, desire as well and revenge, loss, betrayal and crime…
So much had happened that I saw myself biting my nails… Oh lord.
This book was the perfect combination of drama and desire.
SR Jones I’m in love and I can’t wait to read your other books…
When will we have Damon’s story? Soon right?

Skye Jones

About the Author:

Hi Guys. I’m a UK based author who loves to read and write all things romance.

As Skye Jones I write steamy paranormal romance.

As S.R. Jones I write darker, contemporary romance and romantic suspense.

One thing my books have in common are tortured alpha heroes that are oh-so-redeemable!

I live in Yorkshire, and get lots of inspiration from the windswept moors, the old stone buildings and the Celtic myths of this fair isle.

My dogs are my favorite people, although I tell my husband I’m quite fond of him too 😉

I love chocolate and Starbuck’s Mochas and keep meaning to give them up for a life of yoga and fresh juices, but it never happens!

New Release -Dirty Money: A Dark Mafia Romance (Alpha Men Book 1) By Tia Lewis ans Roxy Sinclaire

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Dirty Money

Dark Mafia Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Wanna get inside the mafia? Wanna be scared but at the same time excited?

Have a look at the blurb:

I loved being a con man. Especially using my IT background to rig online poker to make money. But my dad got in trouble with the mafia, and now the head of the mafia, Frank Sputafuoco, wants me to do his dirty work. If I don’t get him the millions of dollars he wanted by the end of the week, he said he’ll kill my dad and rat me out to the feds.

He sent Destiny to me to make sure I stuck to the plan and didn’t try to pull one over them.

I didn’t know what she looked like when they first mentioned her to me. But after one look, I knew she had to be mine.

Angelo, the man I was supposed to end up and his ruthless father sent me to Alex to try to squeeze as much money as possible from his clients. I had no intention of doing anything except make sure the job was done.

But then I overheard Angelo talking about having someone be killed by accident. And I knew he was referring to Alex’s dad.

I didn’t know what to do. Or who to trust. I can’t believe he would do something like that!

I got closer to Alex. Closer than I thought I would. But could I really get away from this mafia family I was supposed to join? Would Alex accept me, coming from the mafia? I don’t know. But I knew I was willing to take that chance.

Dirty Money is a full length standalone dark mafia romance novel. There are NO cliffhangers, NO cheating, and a GUARANTEED happy ending!



When we like an author we’re always eager for more books to read, I know what I’m talking about because as soon as I heard that this author had one more book I barely could fit in myself. I was so happy.

As you know Tia Lewis is a super gifted author, very attentive to detail and can evoke feelings in us who are very well hidden.

Dirty Money is a work co-written by Tia Lewis and Roxy Sinclaire and let me tell you that I am astonished.

It’s amazing how the writing of these two authors merged and created this work of art.

This book explores the lives of Destiny and Alex.

Destiny is a beautiful woman but that is tied to the Mafia. For her life she is obliged to obey the wishes, whims and follies of the Chief’s son. She is taken to seduce customers with which they will do business.

Alex is a smart and determined man that is forced to work for the mafia in exchange for his father’s life.

By working side by side with Destiny the attraction is palpable but impossible since this beautiful woman belongs to the leader.

Is the line between attraction and love so thin?

Will love speak louder than fear?

A lot happened that will let you super nervous. My god the suspense is at its highest level.

How far can go the madness of a man? Is it possible to escape the clutches of the mafia?

I can’t answer that question but I can tell and ensure that the reading will be worth it.

And the hot scenes will drive you crazy.

And now ladies? There will be more books co-written by you?

I hope so because this mix was explosive.
