We were destined for disaster from the second we met …
Massimo D’Agostino is the heir to his father’s empire.
Don’t be fooled by his handsome face, or that piercing blue gaze.
He’s no prince charming.
He’s dangerous and feared, possessive and fierce.
Our first meeting began with a contract that forced me to marry him and sign my life away.
I was a debt repayment and a pawn in his game to exact revenge against my father.
The only way out is death.
I belong to him now.
Me, the Balesteri Mafia Princess.
Pure and untouched…
Owned by the devil who placed me in a gilded cage.
But something unexpected happened the moment our paths collided.
It made me want more of what he had to offer every time I lay beneath him.
Then the past came knocking at the door and dark secrets scattered at my feet.
Suddenly I don’t know truth from lies.
Or, who the monster in this story is.
I thought it was my husband.
Now I’m not so sure…

If you are looking for a dark mafia arranged marriage book then please grab a copy of Ruthless Prince. Massimo is all anti-hero you will learn to love. He knows what he wants and takes it without caring what others think. Emelia is quite naive at her young age, but is made to “grow” up in the blink of an eye. No it is not when they first meet, but happens when well you will see when it happens. When these two first meet it is definitely not love or even like at first sight. Their journey to happiness is a twisted road, and I enjoyed every dark and twisted turn it took. These two have some harsh realities thrown at them, and need to decide just what and who they want.
The storyline was really good and flowed form the most part. There were a few different times I wished the story would pick up. We are left with a few unanswered questions, but this is not a cliffy. The HEA ending is just for this couple, it is left “open” for more books in the series. I for 1 can not wait to see what the author has in store for us.

I have been on a dark romance kick lately and RUTHLESS PRINCE, an arranged marriage, enemies-to-lovers, mafia romance totally hit the spot when it came to that. It’s like Faith Summers took some of my favorite tropes, added some delicious Alpha goodness in the form of Massimo, sprinkled in a good amount of romance, and added tons and tons of passion and dark and twisted turns. Seriously, this book is all the things. The story just swept me away into Massimo and Emelia dark and vengeful world of power, honor and family and I swear didn’t want to come up for air! Thankfully the ending, despite not leaving us on a cliffhanger, does set the stage for more books in the series. Can’t wait to see where this series takes us.

If you’re a fan of dark gritty romances then look no further because RUTHLESS PRINCE by Faith Summers needs to be your next read! 5 stars.

“You can’t have me,” I cry.

“The contract we signed earlier says different, Princess.” He smiles. “We will be married in one month’s time and that is all you need to know.”
“There must be some other way my father can pay you back. Let me go.”
“No. I’m the one the debt is owed. I choose how I want to be paid.”
“There must be some other way.”
“I’m sure there is, except I’ve done exactly what I wanted to do,” he answers.
My heart squeezes. This is the man I’m supposed to marry. While he looks like a fairytale prince, he’s not.
“It’s wrong. You must know that.”
“Stop it,” he orders. His smile fades. That cool, calm demeanor returns, and I realize then that this is his dangerous side. “Stop trying to prey on my good side. I don’t have one.”
“Don’t you have a heart?” I make one final attempt to reach whatever I see in him that might resemble something human.
“No.” He smirks, and my soul quivers.
This is crazy.
There’s only one thing I can do.
Escape…
