Bound by Hatred (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles, #3)
By Cora Reilly
When Gianna watched her sister Aria getting married to a man she barely knew, she promised herself she wouldn’t let the same thing happen to her.
Matteo – The Blade – Vitiello set his eyes on Gianna the moment he saw her on his brother Luca’s wedding, and Rocco Scuderi is more than willing to give his daughter to him, but Gianna has no intention of marrying for any other reason than love. A few months before the wedding, Gianna escapes her bodyguards and runs away. She has enough money to flee to Europe and begin a new life. But staying undetected when the mob is searching for her is a challenge that takes everything, especially as one of their best hunters and assassins is after her: Matteo Vitiello.
After six months on the run, Gianna finally settles into a tentative routine in Munich, but then Matteo and a couple of her father’s soldiers find her with another man.
Despite her pleads they kill her boyfriend, and Gianna is forced to marry Matteo. Her emotions alternating between guilt over having dragged an innocent into her world and hatred toward Matteo, Gianna is determined to make life hell for her husband. But Matteo is a master at mind games and their struggle for power soon turns into hate-fueled nights of passion.
**Book #3 in the "Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles". This book can be read as a standalone.**
Much better then Luca and Aria's story.
Gianna is one tough girl. She did get a tad annoying. I felt bad for her and the way everyone treated her. The double standard at its best. Her father what an ass.
Matteo much better guy then Luca. He knew what he wanted, hunted, fought, and waited for it. I never got mad at him. I felt sorry because he was so patient with her and always stood by her.
Matteo was sexy as hell and there are lots of sexy times.
