When Gianna watched her sister Aria getting married to a man she barely knew, she promised herself she wouldn’t let the same thing happen to her.
Matteo – The Blade – Vitiello set his eyes on Gianna the moment he saw her on his brother Luca’s wedding, and Rocco Scuderi is more than willing to give his daughter to him, but Gianna has no intention of marrying for any other reason than love. A few months before the wedding, Gianna escapes her bodyguards and runs away. But staying undetected when the mob is searching for her is a challenge that takes everything, especially as one of their best hunters and assassins is after her: Matteo Vitiello.
After six months on the run, Gianna finally settles into a tentative routine in Munich, but then Matteo and a couple of her father’s soldiers find her with another man.
Despite her pleads they kill her boyfriend, and Gianna is forced to marry Matteo. Her emotions alternating between guilt over having dragged an innocent into her world and hatred toward Matteo, Gianna is determined to make life hell for her husband. But Matteo is a master at mind games and their struggle for power soon turns into hate-fueled nights of passion.

Hatred that’s turns into love
Bound by hatred was a funny and light hearted story of Matteo and Gianna. Their chemistry is apparent and they clearly love each other at the end of the book.
Gianna Scuderi is an independent spirit who is the complete opposite of her obedient sister Aria. She clearly detests the idea of marrying a Made man and will stop at nothing to free herself from the Mafia.
Matteo Vitiello is a snarky and cocky version of Luca. He has been captivated by the red head since the day they met.
When Gianna manages to escape, Matteo stops at nothing to find her. He is a determined hunter and Gianna was the ultimate prize for him.
Over the course of the novel we watch as they fall in love and a turning point in the book will really move you to tears. A superb read and as usual Cora Reilly doesn’t disappoint!
