Product Description

A story about the sacrifices we make for love...

I sneak out of my room every night. My father's guards don't see me. My sister doesn't see me. No one sees me, except him.

He's the son of a mafia foot soldier. My father is the boss. I shouldn't even know Giovanni. And I definitely shouldn't kiss him. Our relationship is doomed to fail, but that won't stop me from trying.

Not every girl wants to be a princess. I just want to be free.

****************

I mean it is really short, but it conveys everything you could ever need to know about about the three main characters it focuses on. All the bad guys you see about, you just can't wait for them to get their due and you know these two ladies are going to kick some butt once they get out and about

Boom was ok but I hate any book that has no ending & continues to next book. I don't like being forced to buy a book in order to find out what happens to a main character from book one to book two

HASH(0x9ede9e1c) out of 5 stars Edge of your seat, beautifully written prequel to *Love The Way You Lie* March 6 2015
By Megan Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
.THAT.
.WAS.
.AMAZING.
I couldn't come up for air and often found myself getting mad during *life interruptions* like my 6 year old twins and husband simply speaking to me.

*I found this prequel is very interesting, VERY thrilling and beautifully written. It pulled me in at page one! Skye Warren did a great job at describing the main characters life and all that she's dealt with, and also telling me enough about the supporting characters that by the end, I felt as if I knew all of them.
* I found myself anxiously turning the pages to see where she would take all of them in the story.
*By the end I was on the edge of my seat and more than ready to read *Love The Way You Lie*. Fabulous prequel.

MY Favorite quote:

"I can’t stand him looking at me. Not because I don’t want him to see. Because he’s looking at me like a dying man would—as if he knows it’s his last sight. As if drinking his fill."
!!!!YES!!!!

HASH(0x9edeb168) out of 5 stars Short story preview to new series March 28 2015
By Debbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This short story is a preview to a new series. Clara and her older sister Honor are daughters to an aging mob boss. He's arranged the marriage of Honor to a horrible man who is also a dirty cop named Byron. He isn't a nice man and already leaves bruises on Honor. Clara is only fifteen and so far, her dad has left her alone. However he still pretty much keeps her a prisoner in the house not allowing her to go to school and always having guards around. She becomes close friends with Giovani, the seventeen year old son to one of her father's most trusted men. It's not until the night Gio helps save her and assists in helping Clara and Honor escape that she realizes her feelings for him must be love. But at what cost to him? Will they even escape before they're found?

Good start to a series that keeps you interested from the very beginning.

HASH(0x9edeb060) out of 5 stars :: 3.5 Stars :: Aug. 21 2015
By Pretty Little Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a very quick read. While it says on amazon that it’s a little over a hundred pages I’m not so sure. It was too quick of a read to be that length in my opinion. Anyways, this book focuses on Clara and her feelings for a man name Giovanni whom she obviously has strong feelings for. With her family being a part of the mafia, Clara and her sister Honor decide to run rather than face the abuse and death that come with the mafia. This quick read mostly focuses on Clara though and my interest is piqued to see what happens with Clara and Honor next. A decent read, but short. I will definitely be reading the second book (Love the Way you Lie) to see what happens.

Genre: Dark Romance

Book Type: Novella (short story), part of a series, prequel to Love the Way you Lie

Overall Rating: 3.5 Stars

Would I Recommend: If you plan on reading the next story then yes.
