I was born a monster. Cruelty ran in my veins like poison. It ran in the veins of every Vitiello man, passed on from father to son, an endless spiral of monstrosity.
A born monster shaped into an even worse monster by my father’s blade and fists and harsh words.
I was raised to become Capo, to rule without mercy, to dish out brutality without a second thought.
Raised to break others.
When Aria was given to me in marriage, everyone waited with baited breath to see how fast I’d break her like my father broke his women. How I’d crush her innocence and kindness with the force of my cruelty.
Breaking her would have taken little effort. It came naturally to me.
I was gladly the monster everyone feared.
(Bound By Honor from Luca’s POV)
Bound by honour was the book which introduced me to the amazing world of Cora Reilly’s mafia chronicles and when I read that there will be Luca’s pov I couldn’t contain my joy. I was glad to see how luca was adapting to his feelings towards Aria and how the cheating scene with Grace and his regret afterwards,his bond with Matteo ahh I was glad to see Matteo and his unfiltered jokes lol.Aria and Luca are my second best couple after Kiara and Nino from twisted Emotions and if Cora writes twinty books containing their story I would definitely read them all.
Fantastic love these series of books, the characters. Can’t wait for the next one. 😊😍😍❤️❤️❤️💕💕💕
EVERYTHING I EXPECTED AND MORE!
I have always wondered for so long what Luca’s thought process was and what exactly it was that he was doing during “BOUND BY HONOUR” and thankfully now we have the answer.
*No spoilers* but I was lucky enough to read a ARC (Advanced reader copy) of Cora Reilly’s news book from the prospective of Luca Vitiello.
This book answered a lot of questions I had about Bound By Honour, and even Luca’s life before hand, to watch and witness exactly how Luca and Matteo (His brother) grew up with a tragedy at an early age and then an absolutely horrible excuse of a parent you understand more about their personalities, demeanour, their choices and actions as they navigated their way though childhood, being teenagers and then adult’s.
Born and raised to be horrible and cruel, never to show weakness Luca is the picture perfect soon to be Mafia Capo that is until Aria Scuderi.
Navigating their relationship which started off a little rocky with an arranged marriage, a catch of betrayal and hesitation with intimacy it took time for their bond to build but as expected Cora Reilly nailed this book.
I loved that we found out, his true feelings towards situations and people and what he was up to behind the scenes in parts that Aria wasn’t there for or wasn’t allowed to see.
This book defiantly was no let down, it was all and more to get into Luca Vitiello’s head.
Bound By Honour was the book that started me on the journey of Cora Reilly’s Mafia world and I always want and will always want more Luca and I'm so thankful for this book.
A definite 5/5 and a big thank you for this long awaited book, I can’t wait for everyone to be able to read this and if you haven’t read a book by Cora, I encourage anyone and everyone to give her books a go, you will be dragged onto a mafia ride you defiantly don’t want to get off.
