Series: To Have and To Hold Duet #2
Author: Natasha Knight
Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2021
Cristiano is my enemy. He’s also the only man with whom I’ve ever felt safe. Protected.
But I have to remember that he married me with one purpose in mind. Revenge. I would be the bridge to his real enemies.
I can’t let myself forget that he isn’t the hero of this story. His hands are covered in blood. I saw that with my own eyes.
I thought I knew Scarlett’s past, but I didn’t know anything.
I thought I knew the worst of monsters, but I hadn’t seen anything yet.
Sometimes you have to lie to yourself to survive.
Sometimes it’s those closest to you who will bury their knives in your back.
Too many times it’s the innocents who pay for your mistakes. For your refusal to see.
I can’t let Scarlett pay for mine.
But I may be too late to stop it.
OK! We pick up right where With This Ring leaves off. I will say I finished this book a few days ago, but I have been dealing with the book hang over this book provided me with. I needed to take a few days before I sat down to write my review. Natasha Knight has a knack at writing books that not only keep you completely captivated, but leave your emotions all over the place.
Scarlett has lived a life that would quite possibly break a normal woman. She is strong, she is tenacious, and she is fierce. My heart ached for her and then my heart applauded for her. There was no knocking her down and lord forbid stand in Cristiano’s way where she is concerned. Now I am not gonna lie there were a few time I wanted to smack the back of his head and scream at him to pull his head out of his ass, but he completely makes up for it.
Now I will say you will need to sit back and enjoy the dark twisted turns you are about to embark on while reading this book the deceit runs deep between these pages.
After With This Ring we were all left with a monster cliffhanger and I was going a little crazy waiting to dive into I TAKE THEE. I’m happy to report that Natasha Knight absolutely nailed it with the second book in this duet. It was twisty, gritty and wild ride of emotions. The pacing was fantastic! I couldn’t catch my breath in the best way and each chapter had me gasping for what was possibly coming next! I loved Cristiano and Scarlett’s story so freaking much. I was glued to my Kindle from start to finish and I just didn’t want this world to end! 5 stars.
