Sex is his weapon.
Power is her drug.
Caesar Accardo is gasoline. Mostly harmless while stable, but Aria holds the match to set the dishonored Cosa Nostra prince on fire in more ways than one. And if he burns down everything in his path because of it—so be it.
The problem is … she just wasn’t prepared for all of him.
Aria De Rose is a hurricane. Amazing from afar, but destructive up close. Caesar keeps getting pulled into the Camorra queen’s plans in her effort to gain power, but he’s a better player than she knows.
The thing is … women like her are the reason why rules are meant to be broken.
Philadelphia isn’t ready for game these two are playing—the sacrifices they make might not be worth it in the end, and someone will always lose in a war.
They’re broken, so very vicious, and they are not the good guys. But for every villain in the world, there’s a monster at his back who made him that way.
And monsters like those hide in plain sight.
Note: This is a standalone romance with content that some might find triggering. Be warned, and read with caution
THE STORY IN THE SHORT:
Enemies in the Mafia world but lovers in the bedroom, Caesar Accado and Aria De Rose fathers are both leaders in opposing clans.
So opposites as enemies but so parallel in person. They cannot deny their chemistry as lust turns into a dangerous game of power and betrayal, secrets and lies.
“And he found heaven. Or good God … Maybe she is hell.”
Both Caesar and Aria De Rose are a product of their upbringing within the mafia life. They are both ruthless and strong characters, lacking in standard morals and ambitious in purpose and power. Given their brutal mafia world, they have had to adapt in they order to survive.
Neither hero or heroine in this story are immediately likeable. They took some time to grow on me but I had to admire the courage Aria showed in doing whatever she needed in order to get the independence and power she so greatly sought.
“Vicious, violent, and vehement. And she would bow to no one. Not again.”
Caesar is one arrogant and cocky alpha male, he has a bad attitude about everything, getting pleasure from destroying anything he can. He is violence, power and possession rolled into a dirty mouthed, duplicitous sexy son of a bitch.
This story is dark and gritty, there is no fluff or sugar-coating in this story, reminding us that the criminal underworld /mafia is in reality no fairy-tale. The storytelling is intense and fast paced, not leaving any room for intermission. It’s violent, it’s raw, confronting and doesn’t disappoint. I gave Dishonoured 5 Blushing Stars and highly recommend to lovers of Dark Mafia Romance.
Dishonoured is a story about control, fortitude, vengeance and deceit. Showing us that even in the darkness, love can be found.
