I took her to settle a score. Then I claimed her as mine.

Valencia Rivera became mine the moment her father broke the agreement he made with me. She thought she had a say in the matter, but my belt across her beautiful bottom taught her otherwise and a night spent screaming her surrender into the sheets left her in no doubt she belongs to me.

Using her hard and often will not be all it takes to tame her properly, but it will be a good start….

    Claimed as Revenge: A Dark Mafia Romance
    Mafia Masters, Book 4
    By: Piper Stone
    Narrated by: Jack Calihan

    Piper Stone pens another terrific novel in her ā€œMafia Mastersā€ series. This book takes you south to Florida and even Cuba, where the Garciaā€™s rule, Miguel is next in line to lead the family business. He has dealings with Santiago Rivera in Cuba, importing and export business part of the deal was a night with his daughter Valencia. Miguel is an alpha male, Valencia is no submissive but she does eventually submit. When Santiago wrongs Miguel he takes what is most precious to him, his daughter Valencia. As the plot thickens we see all is not what it seems, there are betrayals, power plays, twists and turns, thrilling suspense and Miguel needs to find out who is behind it all to save his familyā€™s empire. I loved how everything plays out in this book, there is never a dull moment and in addition to upheaval in the Mafia world there is plenty of other drama between Miguel and Valencia, the chemistry between them is smoking hot, as she starts to see another side of Miguel she starts to develop feelings for him. She also saw her father in a new light, it was not a good light either. Though I was impressed with what we found out in the end and why he did what he did. Piper Stone, thank you for another great story! rollercoaster

    I listened to the Audible edition, Jack Calihan is a talented narrator and voice artist. He does an amazing job portraying the characters bringing them to life, giving each their own voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. He was great with the accents too. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listenšŸŽ§

    I needed time to distance myself from this audiobook, because … really?

    Being upfront, dark romance really isn’t a genre that I care for, but I love mafia romances. So I felt like I would be able to handle the darker aspects of the romance just for the mafia part, but this was just too much.

    I hated Miguel. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a hero in a romance novel more than I did him. I hated the emphasis on master and slave, especially when no BDSM rules had been established. He demanded respect and obedience without ever trying to gain Valencia’s trust. He freaking spanked her on the side of the road without her consent while traffic drove by honking in appreciation! And then the bathroom scene?! How in the ever-loving hell could anyone show respect for someone who treated you that way when there were no terms or discussion beforehand?

    “You have nothing of importance, Valencia.”

    How freaking demeaning and cruel. Why do readers like this treatment of the heroines? This is not BDSM, it’s treating a person like crap. In fact, it’s borderline abuse. If a woman said their spouse was treating them this way, from barely consensual spanking to keeping Valencia’s cello from her to refusing to allow her to talk to anyone, we’d be seeing all the red flags and telling her to get away from her significant other.

    As romance readers, we should be expecting better from our heroes and heroines. I don’t care if this was a dark romance. This was abuse, pure and simple. Just thinking about this book has me angry all over again.

    Sorry, I’m off my soapbox.

    As for Valencia, I felt the author made her way too one-dimensional. She honestly felt more like a prop for Miguel than anything, and a stereotypical one at that. I honestly don’t know why she fell in love with Miguel. Were the sex scenes hot? Yes, but they often didn’t come with with any kind of emotional connection.

    I’m trying to think of something positive to say about this book and … well, the narrator wasn’t awful?

    It took me a while to adjust to how Jack Calihan read this book. Miguel lived in South Florida and was a first generation Puerto Rican, so hearing him have a slight accent sort of made sense. But Valenica was 100% Cuban and sounded like a typical rich American woman. Why? Just to make Miguel seem sexier? That’s stupid. But as the book progressed, Miguel’s accent slowly disappeared. Valencia’s accent never appears, but at least it’s sort of more even. I guess.

    I will say that Calihan did a pretty good job handling a woman’s voice, even if she didn’t have an accent. Then again, I don’t know how this came across to those who read it, but Calihan made Miguel seem like a huge stereotype and it really turned me away from this book.

    And this is just more of a personal taste, but I wish authors would stop referring to grown women as girls. They’re adults, treat them the same way you do the men.

    I received a free review copy of this book from Audiobooks Unleashed as part of its Verified Reviewer program and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Piper and Jack deliver another delicious ‘Sons of Darkness’ enemies to lovers dark, twisted Mafia romance.

    This time it’s Miguel Garcia’s story. Facing his father’s illness and an unknown enemy bent on destroying him, Miguel will need all his strength and friends to survive.

    Valencia Rivera has no idea that she is a pawn in a dangerous game. A game that will leave her at the mercy of the Garcia family and Miguel’s dark desires.

    Can two people brought together by violence, secrets and lies ever find happiness together. Well that would be telling…

    I am loving Piper’s Mafia Masters series with her dark heroes falling hard for strong beautiful women. A treat for any lover of steamy erotic romance that pushes boundaries out of the ball park.

    This series is seriously dark with elements of non consent, bullying and outright cruelty before the main characters come together.

    I would recommend to fans of Loki Renard, Addison Cain and Sara Fields.
