~ Blood & Lies is a DARK Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to hard to read subjects~
Wow!..... And breath.
Blood and lies is a dark concoction of lies, deceit, enemies within, danger, revealed twisted lies and exposed truths.
Among it all is Castello the new mafia boss who now reins following the death of both his father and brother and the pawn in the deceptive game is Tatum, daughter of a powerful businesses man.
Blood & Lies begins with Tatums kidnapping and a promise of revenge from Castello to his mother.
Castello has been lead to believe Tatum's father is responsible for killing his brother when he found out that Tatum and Castello's brother Carlo were in a relationship.
Carlo was next in line as boss after his father and so following Carlos's death then the immediate natural death of his father Castillo was thrust into the lead and became head if the Mafia.
Castello had the responsibility of avenging his brothers death and what greater way than to take the woman responsible for luring his brother.
This is far from any Romeo and Juliet romance though.
There's lies and deceit in this tangled web and as the plot grows Castello begins to discover truths and his reasons for killing Tatum become blurred.
Tatum and Castello have a toxic attraction to each other, neither can contain their animalistic need for each other.
Blood and Lies is part one of this duet and just when things are getting even more intense your left wanting more.
A dark and gripping read. Contains bondage and knife play and triggers of self harm. It's definitely not for the faint hearted and is filled to the brim with danger, angst, mystery and suspense.
A story of a girl taken against her will by a family who wants an eye for an eye but somethings just aren't that cut and dry and Lies exposed throw a bloody spanner in the works.
Told in first persons dual pov.
Looking forward to part 2, Blood & Vows.

He still owned me.
The matter of my freedom has not yet been addressed, and I won’t demand it in fear that he might give it to me.
I’m no longer an unwilling prisoner, but rather an eager participant. His touch makes me come alive with wicked delight, and I’ve given up fighting it.
My life changed indefinitely. Pleasure and decadent sins of lust invaded both my body and mind. But death and grief also infiltrated my soul, and now the image of my father’s lifeless body haunts me, filling my nights with dreams of revenge and the bitter red of blood.
We can’t change the past, but our future is still undecided. The tables have turned. A strong family now stands divided, and now it’s war.
The war of brothers.
The war of blood.
Castello made it clear that he would fight this war with me as his queen, and that’s what I intended to be…
I wanted the best if both world's, and there was only one way to do that...
Make her my queen by day and my slave by night.
Blood & Vows is the awaited conclusion to Blood & Lies.
The plan was simple kidnap the girl and have blood thirsty revenge. If you read book one you will know even the best plans fail.
The lies and deceit continue to run through this duet and family loyalties and sides are a big part of the plot as Castello goes up against his brother.
A gripping conclusion filled with an intensity that has you gripping on for life in the hope all will come good for Tatum and Castello.
A cleverly written plot by Bella J.
I loved the dominance and possesivenes of Castillo and the way Tatum blossomed into a woman with a strong backbone, a big leap from the girl we first met quivering in a corner.
A captivating dark read, definitely not for the faint hearted with blood play, self harm and bdsm.
I didn't enjoy the bdsm part of this book Castello was a domineering character to begin with, he was a leader and a man of power and the way Tatum craved him, was drawn to him and naturally submitted to him anyway made the master and pet aspect of this relationship to overboard with even more added dominance that I felt wasn't needed or maybe it's just me, I no longer read bdsm as I reader you could say I grew out of it to a point now were I roll my eyes at the yes master words, so you will have to come to your own conclusion on that one because I know some readers love it.
I enjoyed the latter part of this book and was more than satisfied with the hea.
I would definitely read more from Bella J, her words were intoxicating the journey with the characters was fulfilling, witnessing Castello and Tatum go from strength to strength in themselves as people and in their love, the plot was intense and addictive.
