Sale Blitz: Bella Box Set


Release & Sale Blitz 

Title: Bella Box Set Vol. 1-4

Series: A Sagatori family saga A Mafia Romance 

Author: Kimberly Blalock

Release Date:  April 30th





Bella vol. 1

My name is Isabella Sagatori. To my father I’m a princess, to others I’m an opportunity. They call me the mafia princess.

My life had been beautiful, I’d never wanted for anything. I took each day as it came and embraced it with Insight, laughter, and love. I chose not to live in the dark shadows,
until now.
Skip ahead and here I am running for my life, for my father’s life, and for my freedom. Darkness lingered and my father offered my hand to the boss of the Chicago outfit to ensure my protection.
Jax Moretti came into my life as a hero and then claimed me as his own. He claimed he'd only wanted to protect me, but the dark shadows that lingered in his told a different story.
Nothing that belongs to this earth is ever free. Until I met Jax Moretti I couldn’t have known how true that could be.

Bella vol.2 

Taking over this family isn’t going to be easy. There are a lot of things that have been left undealt with. A lot of people need reminding of the man I am; what I can do to them, what I can have done to them. I control the cards. I determine what happens. The outcome is in my hands. I am the king.

Weakness isn’t a possibility. I’m not weak. I don’t cry or tell a sob story. Why would I? I wanted to be like my father; strong, willful, powerful. I wanted to make him proud. Jax will keep me as his bride and I will fight back. My words will be silent, my actions controlled. And when he least expects it -when I least expect it- I will do the unthinkable, unimaginable, in my world.

Bella vol.3 
“Head of the family” is not an easy job title. There is a darkness within those words, a common set of traits the boss of bosses must possess and codes he must follow in order to fulfil his duty. Famiglia first. Always thinking of the family. But now, I find myself thinking of her. Sitting at my desk, calling the shots, even pulling the trigger has become a daunting task. Not because I don’t want to or can’t, but because all I want to do is imagine what it would feel like with my body wrapped around hers.

Should I feel as though this is the life I want? Should I see the good for all it is and accept the bad as it comes? He’s different, I’m different. Maybe it’s the way his eyes glisten now or the fact that they are even darker at times. I can’t help but wonder what it would be like if Jax could love me. I know that I’m imagining things at night when he asks me to stay with him in his bed. I feel him watch me. But what if I wasn’t imagining it, what would that mean?

Bella vol.4 

I hated him for the things he took from me. I hated him for the love he refused me. But after all of the hate and anger, I knew without a doubt that I was irrevocably in love with Jax Moretti. I'm a woman born into a man's world. I've stood tall and held my own knowing the people that wanted my family in the ground, weren't far behind and soon they'd be exactly where I want them to be.

My name is Isabella Sagatori-Moretti. I will protect my family.

Review: Kept: A Second Chance Fairy Tale by A.C. Bextor




Publication Date: 3/14/2016
Rating:  5 Stars

 

Official Blurb: 

Michael

She’s a pain in my ass.
She’s everything I know I don’t want or need.
She’s the reason I’ve fought the darkness for so long.
And yet, she has no idea who I am.

I had no right to Lucy. She was never mine to have. My interest in her should’ve remained no more than an undisclosed business arrangement. 

The day she forced her way into my life, everything I worked so hard to secure began to unravel. From that moment forward, my life has been a mixture of chaos and excitement.

Lucy awoke the beast I’ve struggled to live with. Now it’s up to her to ensure the threat of its ghost no longer holds the power to ruin me. 

Lucy

He hates me.
He’s guarded and locked down tight.
He’s a brute.
Yet, he opened my eyes to a future I was certain didn’t exist.

My life was ordinary. As a single mother living only to make ends meet, I stopped wishing for more. My hopes and dreams in finding Prince Charming ceased to exist. Life forced my priorities to change.

Then I walked into Michael Holden’s office and saw pain not so unlike mine reflecting through his icy gaze. He incited feelings I believed to have long since died.

Michael awoke the spring of hope I thought I’d finally set free. Now it’s up to him to show me fairy tales really can come true, if you believe.

Due to content, this book should not be read by those under the age of 18.


Author A.C. Bextor has taken a step in a new direction with this fairy tale-esque romance.   Known for her gritty motorcycle club romance novels, Bextor’s Kept is a sweet yet tragic story.  Her adventure into the contemporary romance genre is in my opinion a success.  Kept was engaging and a heartfelt look into the lifes of two people who were linked by a past tragedy.

Michael is a successful lawyer whose life has literally shattered after his wife’s betrayal that tied into a tragic loss. He is the kind of man you feel bad for hating knowing that his personality and actions are not entirely his fault, but at the same time, you want to smack the ever loving crap out of him for being an asshole. I’ll admit a few times I had my fist clenched because his words and actions in this book.  He’s lived in his protective shell of indifference and moodiness since the day his life changed forever while secretly keeping the other person’s life that was affected by the tragedy comfortable out of guilt. Everyone around him seems the pain and remorse that’s taken over his life and desperately want to help him, but it takes an unlikely source to bring a semblance of love back to his heart.

Lucy is also no stranger to tragedy and pain, but raising her young son completely on her waitress’ salary has consumed her every waking thought. Even as she struggles, she clings to the fact that she has done everything possible to make her son happy.  When the security of her job is ripped away from her, a twist of fate and well, meddling, Lucy finds herself stuck in a job she doesn’t exactly qualify and the crosshairs of Michael.  He’s not exactly the nicest person to her, but there’s something about him that makes her want to stay and fight to hold the job she so desperately needs.  Lucy has to embrace her inner spitfire to go toe to toe with Michael, which made me love her even more as a character. 

I’ll admit that I was skeptical at first about Kept because it was so unlike any other of Bextor’s books, but it works for me.  It fast paced enough that I didn’t feel like the story dragged on and the plot twists were exactly timed out to keep the story charging forward.  Plus, it helped that my inner Disney Princess loved all of the fairytale references that were tucked into the pages.   I know that some people may not like Bextor’s side trip into more of a contemporary piece, but I, for one, applaud her for not only taking a step out of her comfort zone, but for delivering a unique and entertaining read.
