Dishonorable by Natasha Knight is NOW LIVE!
"OMG!! When I started this for the life of me I couldn't put it down GOD I LOVED the SH*T out of this BOOK!!" - Kitty Kat's Crazy About Books




I knew little of Raphael Amado’s history with my family, but when he turned up on our doorstep demanding restitution, my grandfather quickly conceded. That restitution? Me.
Six months later, on my eighteenth birthday, Raphael came for me. He stole me from my home, taking me to his Tuscan estate, where from the crumbling chapel to the burnt-down vineyard, to the cellar that haunted him, the past stalked him like a shadow. It waited for him, hid behind corners for him and trapped him at every turn.

As much as Raphael’s cruelty terrified me, his darkness seduced me. But in the end, it was his tenderness that devastated me.


Sofia came to me like an offering. Like a virgin to be sacrificed at the altar. But truth was, her grandfather betrayed her. I guess we had that in common. He’d screwed me too.
I knew hate. I'd vowed vengeance. This was never supposed to be about anything else. But in the end, her innocence broke me. The very thing I would destroy, destroyed me.

My Review:

**4.5 stars**

I really liked this book. It told the story of how Raphael was so intent on vengeance that he almost missed out on the greatest thing to happen to him. I loved that he couldn't hate Sofia and he told her as much. He tried to distance himself and stay away from her, but like the synopsis said, he was drawn to her innocence. 

They didn't meet on the best of terms, (he basically took her) but in a sense he was her saving grace. Everyone thought of him as a monster for taking her and yes, he had his dark moments, but ultimately his character was like able and I enjoyed his complexity. Her grandfather never had her best interest at heart and treated her as nothing more than a bargaining chip throughout the whole book.

I also liked that Sofia didn't lose herself. Lately, I've seen a trend with dark romances where the women forget that being submissive doesn't mean they can't still maintain their own identity. I also thought this book was on the lighter side of the dark romance aspect.

I wasn't sure if there would be a sequel to this book, but I'd love to get Lina (Sofia's sister) and Damon's (Raphael's brother) story. I'd also like to know more about their other brother who went into the military. There was mention of him being missing, but that never got developed in the book.

I look forward to more from the author and would recommend her to others.
