it s here I have loved all the previous books in this series and i really enjoyed this one also, but damn it, there is a thing that we call it editing and there was none of this thingThere were too many errors in here and that was a little bit of disturbingAnd what the hell happened with the POV s Why Cara had a first person POV and Growl a third person And some times, the author was getting confused too while she was writing it But, i won t stand in that unfortunate situation I enjoyed the story very much and i would like to tell you about itI SHALL BATHE IN THE BLOOD OF MY ENEMIES AND FEAST ON THEIR FEAR Growl was the most deadly assassin of the Las Vegas s Camorra Everyone was afraid of him Everyone despised him Nobody knew his real name and nobody cared about him He was just a monster who could do his job well, but noone wanted something to do with himCara was a good and full of grace girl Her father was a serious part of the Las Vegas s mafia and his daughter means much for him She is about to make a great rearranged marriage which is right for her position Cara liked to follow the rules and she is caring very much about what the others are thinking And she is overthinking everythingCara and Growl are worlds apart but an unfortunate situation will bound them togetherGrowl can t believe that Cara is now his, when he didn t thought that he was deserving something so good in his life And Cara was ripped away from the life she knew because of her father s actions Now she is owned by a monster and Growl is been put in this position because they think that he can teach her a lessonMaybe my body reacts to you but I will never feel anything but hatred for you, you monster I m a monster, you got that right Have always been, will always be I m good at being a monster Few people ever find something they re good at, something they were meant to be That s crazy Nobody s meant to be a killer Nobody s meant to be like you I don t get it How does anyone become like that It can t all be because of that scar on your throat I have many scars and they all made me the man I am todayWhat will happen with those two Will Growl manage to teach her a lesson Will Cara see behind his mask and will she stop hating him Will she manage to unravel all of his secrets and will she be able to take revenge for what they did to her and her family Will Growl make her understand To be totally honest with you, the only interesting character in here was Growl He was interesting, he had lots of ugly scars and lots of shitty baggages The bad opinions didn t touch him at all and he proved to us that his heart was gold, even though his appearance was black He was very thoughtful with Cara and that was so damn sweetHe felt something But he didn t know what it was He d never felt like this before She made him want to treat her right She made him want to be better She made him want so many things he shouldn t want She was dangerous to him, to the life he d built, to the person he d becomeAs for Cara She wasn t much interesting and she confused the hell out of me From the first moment that she saw Growl, she was drown to him and that didn t stop even when she was his prisoner But all the time, it was like she was trying to convince herself that she was hating him So there was so much contradiction in her feelings about Growl and that was making me dizzy Also, she was caring too much for people s opinion and i think that she had lost herself somewhere in thereSo, i honestly don t know what i m feeling about her, even though that at the end, i appreciated herI was falling for him, and I wasn t sure how to stop myself from feeling that way But I had to There was no future for Growl and me There would not be He had been a monster all his life Even if I told him he could redeem himself by helping me, I d never really believed it, had I How could I be with someone like that How could I explain that to my mother and sister I couldn tWell, the story was really good and i enjoyed it enough, even though the mistakes It was a nice storyline that could keep your interest in high levels, but it also felt a little bit rushed especially toward the end.I really can t wait for Fabiano s turn I just hope that this book will remind us why we loved this series so much P.S Damn, i loved Bandit and Coco Okay so after waiting for over a year we finally got the book I read it the day it came out slept on it and then decided to write this review, after a lot of thinking Ive decided to rate this book only on the basis of the story and story alone There were a lot grammatical errors in this book I groaned and whined few times when i had to re reread a sentence to try to understand it or when words were missing or misplaced I m normally not very nice with my ratings on books with errors but I ve decided to let Cora off the hook for that But, im probably not going to be very nice reviewing the story lets get to my RANT review Potential spoilers ahead 3 Stars The book starts of in a typical Cora fashion Heroine living in a palace with everything she desires a fingertip away, getting ready to attend the Capo s party because shes of age now.The heroine s innocent but not as naive as Aria was Cara was a cross between Aria n Gianna She was sweet but a spitfire when needed to be She was very materialistic though We meet the Hero at this party Hes standing in the corner looking very out of place Everyone trying very hard not to look his way but failing i mean how can anyone ignore the infamous monster of the Capo Before i had started this book i though this was going to be a story about Cara being taken by the rival mafia the Russians or something and given to their monster but boy was i wrong I did not expect her father to betray his own capo The heroine became the daughter of a traitor and given to the monster as gift for a job well done on torturing her father my mind was blown at this point then the monster took her home A run down house in a run down area with nothing but druggies and criminals Cara went from Dior to Dollar Store in a matter of hours I was having the time of my life reading this This was so different from what Reilly typically wrote Her heroines have always had the best of everything in all the other books BUT, after Growl bought her home things just went down hill Growl was suppose to be a monster that has tortured and killed a lot of people he has a fucking tattoo on his chest of killing people and feasting on their blood or fear or some shit like that And for him to soften up towards Cara on the very day her bought her home was something i couldn t digest i was hoping for some torture in her future and then for Growl to SLOWLY soften up But what does growl do he fulfills all her demands She doesn t like black coffee so he buys her milk for coffee, how considerate of that supposed monster She loves to read Aww he bought her books to read She didn t even have to ask for her clothes, he was considerate enough to go to her old house and get her things for her How sweet is this guy I wasn t even mad when view spoiler He decided to go to the whorehouse for a quick fuck, because it was something that went with his characterization at that point but what i didnt like was why he went there He was so sexually frustrated and wanted to fuck Cara but couldnt because hes a nice guy i guess He could ve easily gotten off from Cara There are some creative ways of not raping her but still getting off I mean for crying out loud he was the MONSTER hide spoiler 3 STARS Growl He D Never Had Something To Himself, Never Even Dared To Dream About Owning Something So Precious He Was The Unwanted Bastard Son Who D Always Had To Content Himself With The Leftovers Of Others And Now They D Given Him What Only A Few Weeks Ago Had Been Out Of His Reach, Someone He Wasn T Even Allowed To Admire From Afar, One Of Their Most Prized Possessions Thrown At His Feet Because He Was Who He Was, Because They Were Certain He Would Break Her He Was Her Punishment, A Fate Worse Than Death, A Way To Deliver The Ultimate Punishment To Her Father Who Had Displeased Them So Greatly Cara She Had Always Been The Good Girl It Didn T Protect Her She Didn T Know His Real Name People Called Him Growl To His Face, And The Bastard Behind His Back Both Were Names He Couldn T Possibly Have Chosen For Himself His Eyes Were Empty, A Mirror To Throw Back Her Own Fear At Her He Was A Brutal Hand Of The Las Vegas Camorra And Now She Was At His Mercy I have a bit of hate love relationship with all these books I don t want to read them because they usually make me very angry but at the same time, I sort of like them However, even I have limits I started reading this and then I realised that I don t want to read this one.I m not interested in Growl I don t like him I don t want to like him I just want the Falcones to get him with a red bow on his head to do with whatever they wish. 2.75 avenge me starsi ll stand by that comment above This was so not what hoped it would be I can t say i was totally bummed but it was awkwardand the general impact was off So, the protected mafia princess is given by the Camorra mafia boss as a gift to his best enforcer Growl a cruel feared monster, killer and what not meaning to be a punishment cause her father betrayed the boss Betrayal is punished by death.She is to be dealt by Growl in any way he wants she s his to own, to take in any way, to claimShe slowly sees there s a hidden tortured soul under the monsterous features and conductNow, in this awkward beauty and the beast mafia spin off, i found it incredibly misplaced in pacing of the storytelling It was slow for a mafia book, therefore at times boring and annoying The story was painfully predictable and the characters were, well, in one word disappointing, even if there was a visible effort to make them layered and complex But in the end, Growl became Meow, the princess got her vengeance for her father s death delivered by the very same man she feared at first, but they found the purpose beyond the exterior in each other, believe it or not, they found beauty and they lived happily ever after.Even though i loved Ms Reily s first 2 books in the seriesthis one unfortunately continues the path of the last three that were also on the lacking side But hopefully, I will find a way out of the dark as i won t give up in reading any further books by this author 4 A man of the shadows STARSDon t judge things by their looks It s deceiving 5 I waited long enough StarsWhen I first discovered Cora Reilly, I read her whole series in a few days Yup, I binged read like a mad woman, so you can see that I was devastated that Bound by Vengeance took over a year to write I m not saying I can t wait a year to read a book, I ve done it lots of times, but it was really sad when the author dropped the face of the earth kind of went MIA.I wasn t mad, just highly disappointed, but I understand stuff happens in life.Moving on to the reviews I ve read the reviews, I was REALLY surprised when I saw so many low rating reviews I will say this I m not a grammar teacher, I don t even think my reviews are written grammatically correct BUT when it kind of distracts you from reading, it s a bit annoying As you can see I didn t take off any stars for this I am assuming the author is going to correct this, because the grammar is kind of bad I mean, she goes from third POV to first POV A LOT in the book Sometimes the Hero and Heroine is switched back and forth If this book was written maybe a few months after the previous book, I wouldn t have said anything.BUT WHEN YOU HAVE WAITED OVER A YEAR FOR THIS BOOK, THEN IT SHOULD BE edited properly Just my two cents.Now that is done and over, I really liked this book I liked Growl and I liked Cara I liked that Cara is a society princess She s like most of the girls in this world is betrothed and is about to get married, but something happens and Cara is given to Growl as a punishment And Growl can do whatever he wants with her.Growl is called Growl because of his ugly scar on his neck and he s a monster A lot of reviewers complain about him being too nice to Cara and I sometimes feel like we read so many of these romance books, we just want the Hero force himself on the girl and slap her around.I really liked the dynamic and relationship between the two I didn t find it boring at all I liked them playing house and I liked reading about Growl s past and Cara s need to save her mother and sister.I guess everything that annoyed the reviewers besides the grammar errors I disagreed I felt like this book was almost everything I hoped for and I still hope this series never ends I will say this view spoiler They never used a condom and since Cara is a Virgin, I doubt she was on birth control I was waiting for her to get pregnant, but that never happened I felt like if the author had beta readers, they would have caught this Also, it was kind of gross that Growl fucked a prostitute without a condom too I hope Cara doesn t have STD s hide spoiler
