Silence By N. Isabelle Blanco!

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

When my brother, the King, married fifteen-years ago, I welcomed his new family as my own. His wife . . . her baby girl.

My niece by marriage.

I left to war the savages. For years I traveled back and forth, seeing that child age.

But then the last battle kept me away for five years . . .

I’ve returned now to take my rightful place: second-in-command to the throne.

I am everything this kingdom stands for—everything it needs. The kind of pillar not even my brother can aspire to being.

They all look up to me. To maintaining their code.

Yet, they do not know the truth.

In the grip of the shadows, she haunts me at night.

During the day, she smiles and whispers, showing me traces of that sweet little girl.

At night, she’s there, a vision in black. Watching, stalking . . . no words need to be said.

She knows.

I’m losing the battle. This thing between us is an evil spark.

Thousands of years of honor are threatened—about to be shredded by the impossibility of our desire.

She doesn’t care.

It’s in her silence that she kills me . . . and she wields it like a blade.

The savage call of her blood is more than I can handle . . .

And the need to own her body might destroy us both.

My Thoughts 💭

Wow! I really enjoyed this book. Obsidian returns home from war to find out his step-niece is all grown up. Obsidian and Calamity are obsessed with each other! Calamity is tired of Obsidian trying to do what he thinks is right and wants him to claim what’s his before someone else does. Obsidian is at war with himself and Calamity’s behavior and his dreams are making him even more crazed and determined to find out the secrets being kept from him. This was a interesting forbidden paranormal romance. While I did really enjoy the book it seemed like when Obsidian finally lost all control it was over. I would have liked to find out what happened when his brother found out.

SYNOPSIS

Lucia Marcello is the good girl—or she used to be. The youngest mafia principessa of her family, she’s not the one who falls for the man from the wrong side of the tracks, and she certainly shouldn’t have run across the country with him.

She’ll leave everything behind for him …

Renzo Zulla is the bad guy—society and life labeled him that way. The only person left to take care of his siblings, he couldn’t afford the distraction of falling in love with a rich girl far beyond his league, and he definitely shouldn’t have her riding shotgun as he runs for his life.

He doesn’t want her anywhere else …

Love keeps them together.
Fear keeps them running.
Chaos follows them everywhere they go.

How long can they keep moving before someone finally catches up?

The cost of love is always high.
Never harbor it blindly.

I absolutely loved this book! I was hooked from the beginning! Diana thinks she’s damaging her no good ex’s car but she’s actually damaging Tobias car.

Overall the book was hawt and I loved their story and will most definitely be reading the rest of the series!

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

The world was prettiest when it was dark. Shrouded in silence, all distractions sleeping for the moment, a person could finally reflect on everything. Their life, and what had become of it. Their choices, and why they made them.

Anything.

A person could think about anything when it was dark.

Yet, the only thing Lucia Marcello could think about as she watched the dark highway climb ahead of their vehicle was how long they had been driving. She blinked one too many times, pretty sure that the last time she had stared at the highway, there had been a lot fewer trees and more sunlight. The highway had been far more congested, too.

She peered at the clock on the dash, taking in the time before counting back the hours.

“Twenty,” she murmured.

In the driver’s seat, Renzo passed her a look. Despite her confusion, she hadn’t for one second forgot that he was next to her driving like he had been for the last several hours—almost an entire day of driving, now. It was impossible for her to just forget this man was near. Her whole body felt it, like he lit her on fire in the best way possible. All of her little hairs stood on end, and her nerves snapped. Even sitting beside her, he wasn’t nearly close enough.

Or, that’s how she felt.

Strange how that worked …

His brow quirked up, a silent question without him saying anything to her out loud. He wouldn’t want to wake his sleeping brother in the back seat, after all. He’d even turned down the music when it seemed to be making Diego toss and turn more than usual. Always his first concern, Diego took importance.

Lucia didn’t mind.

“What are you mumbling about over there?”

Had she been mumbling?

“We’ve been driving for twenty hours,” she told him quietly.

Renzo nodded, and his grip on the SUV’s steering wheel tightened. “Yeah, I know.”

If he’d been keeping track, too, he hadn’t said anything to Lucia about it. Then again, they had just taken off … they were basically on the run in a stolen vehicle after burning another stolen vehicle. She didn’t blame him for being distracted, and focusing on the things he needed his attention to be on.

How many hours they had been driving probably wasn’t even a blip on his radar. But it was on hers, now. The more she watched Renzo from the side, the easier it was for her to see what he was trying to suppress. His gaze dropped every so often, darting to the clock before going back to the road. His eyes were dimmed with tiredness even if it was hard to see in the low lighting of the vehicle. He kept that tight grip on the steering wheel no matter what, though, but Lucia was wondering how much effort that was taking him to do exactly that.

“Ren?”

“Hmm, what, baby?”

She smiled.

He’d said it so absently, like she wasn’t far from his mind now, but he was still worrying about other things. He needed to sleep. They needed to stop and rest, or she needed to drive. Either one would be fine for Lucia as long as it meant Renzo was going to relax for a couple of hours, and close his eyes.

“I can drive,” she said.

“I know you can drive.”

“So let me do that for a while. Pull over, let me drive.”

His gaze drifted to her again, and the edges of his lips quirked up in a smile. “I’m good.”

“But—”

“Lucia, I don’t even know where I’m going. How are you going to know, huh?”

He did have a good point even if she didn’t want to admit it. What good would it do them if she ended up getting lost while he was sleeping?

“Still haven’t figured that out, then?” she asked.

“Where we’re going?”

“Yeah.”

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT:

The young woman screamed money. From the Cartier watch on her wrist to the diamond studs in her ears. Even the way her wavy light brown hair had been streaked with red and blonde highlights looked like something that had been done in a proper salon. And that was before Renzo thought to figure out what brand of jeans she had decided to paint on that morning, or if that was actual silk she was wearing for her blouse.

Yet, even through the money she might as well have been draped in, Renzo wasn’t so distracted that he couldn’t see Lucia was pretty.

That was a bit rude, really.

Beautiful was a better description.

She was tiny featured. Small lips with a perfect cupid’s bow. A button nose. High cheekbones. Soft lines on her face, and an even softer smile. She was petite in height, maybe only reaching his chin, but that didn’t detract from the shape of her hips or the tight cinch in her waist.

Shit.

He needed to get laid if he was noticing how nice looking some spoiled little rich girl from the other side of the city was. And he really didn’t need to be thinking about getting laid while he was holding Diego.

“Hi, Lucia,” Diego said. “Miss Teresa said you’re gonna work here now.”

Oh, for fuck’s sake.

Lucia nodded, and smiled back at Diego. “That’s right.”

Her gaze drifted to Renzo again.

“What?” he asked.

“I was thinking about offering you two a ride home. It’s late, and your little brother looks like he’s had a rough day. I don’t know how far you live from here, but do you really want to carry him the whole way?”

Renzo’s jaw stiffened. “Like I don’t do it every other day?”

Lucia didn’t miss the bite in his tone if the way her smile faded was any indication. Maybe he took a little bit of satisfaction in that, but he wasn’t about to admit it. Renzo wasn’t the type to be an asshole just to be an asshole. But here he was.

Something about this chick made his nerves stand up on fucking end. Like little hairs that felt something annoying or bad, and were reacting to it being too close.

He knew exactly where Lucia Marcello came from, and she was nothing like him. A privileged little girl who probably never knew what it was like to struggle, or walk the streets day after day because she wouldn’t eat otherwise.

He doubted she knew any of that kind of shit at all.

And for some reason, it just irked him like nothing else that she was so willing to stand there like she was and act as though there was no difference between the two of them. As if the two of them were somehow on level ground when it came to the rest of the world. Like she wasn’t wearing designer and silk while he was running around in frayed jeans and a leather jacket that he’d won from a bare fist boxing match three years ago.

Like her heels didn’t have red soles.

And his combat boots weren’t scuffed all to hell.

He was the poor kid from the Bronx.

She was the trust fund baby with mafia connections.

Oil and water.

Lucia seemed to pick up on his hesitance to take a ride from her, and she shrugged. “It’s just a ride, you know. You seemed angry inside, and I thought maybe I could make it a little better.”

Renzo arched a brow high. “Better?”

“That’s what I said.”

“A ride isn’t going to make my life better, Lucia.”

He didn’t miss the way her throat jumped when he said her name, or how her pretty mouth drifted open a little more. He was noticing too much about this chick, and at the moment, his brother was getting heavier by the second on his arm.

He figured, why not let Diego decide? His kid brother always had a better feeling about people than Renzo did. It was a talent, really.

“What do you think, Diego,” Renzo started to say, “should we ride with her?”

Lucia huffed a bit.

Diego just smiled. “Yeah, Ren.”

That was that.

“Guess we’ll take a ride,” Renzo muttered.

Lucia’s hazel gaze glittered when she smiled brilliantly all over again. She even did a little bounce on her feet that only added to her sprite-like joy.

Yeah.

He was noticing way too much.
