I knew little of Raphael Amado’s history with my family, but when he turned up on our doorstep demanding restitution, my grandfather quickly conceded. That restitution? Me.
Six months later, on my eighteenth birthday, Raphael came for me. He stole me from my home, taking me to his Tuscan estate, where from the crumbling chapel to the burnt-down vineyard, to the cellar ...more
This was easily my favorite novel by this author to date. Dark, raw, gritty, sensual, 'Dishonorable' is so gripping and fantastically written. I was immersed in this story from the very beginning and I couldn’t put it down for one minute. Natasha Knight is a talented author, but I truly think she outdid herself with this mind blowing read. Filled with suspense, intrigue, passion and steam, Natasha’s latest release will keep you at the edge of your seat the entire time. It will captivat...more

OMG!! When I started this for the life of me I couldn't put it down GOD I LOVED the SHIT out of this BOOK!! The beginning is *gulps*racing through my mind that thought like a broken record * what the fuck is going on*, then the next chapter or so the *feels* start coming at you *full throttle*, and it just escalated more as I progressed further into this book.
DISHONORABLE: This is Sofia’s and Raphael’s story, spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ A haunting, gritty, raw tale.
In the ‘PROLOGUE 2016 ...more
I have read many books by Natasha Knight. This book is exactly what I have come to expect from her. Dishonorable is a fantastic read. It’s dark, gritty, raw, intense!
Raphael has some major psychological issues and is super possessive, dominating, raw, primal and hot. He is also generous, sensitive and sweet. Sofia is cute, a bit naïve, smart and sassy. For better or worse they were basically the perfect couple.
Sofia has her issues with her family, and especially with her deceitful ...more
Let me tell you that I read the first half of the book with a little bit of hope that I might like it after a certain point and I waited patiently until 50%... Nope, it just got worse...
And after this scene, I am dropping it. I don't want to see their happy end anymore!
Him spanking her ass for punishment purposes
her liking it, though
him starting to f*ck her to punish again and stopping doing that when he saw she liked it
him forcing it into her mouth afterwards
him telling her to swallow when he c ...more

Oh My God, this book! Hands down to Natasha Knight! Dishonorable is WOW! Just WOW!!!I can't even with this book. Start to finish is perfectly written.

While the story felt very similar to Salvatore when it started, that’s where the similarity ended. Well, except for it was well-written, deliciously dark and had me reading it from start to finish in one ‘can’t read fast enough’ sitting!
“Take care when fighting the monsters you don’t become one.”
Anger, despair, revenge. There was much that drove Raphael Amado and Sofia Guardia was going to be the catalyst for it all, Catalyst, collateral damage, victim – she was going to ...more
It was a good book. I won't say otherwise, but I think I felt a bit mislead because it wasn't as dark as I thought it would've been.
The prologue is fucking awesome, because it kept me on my feet, and had me itching to turn the pages to find out what had happened. It was after that though, that the things started to change a bit.
Sofia Guardia had become the payment her grandfather, Marcus Guardia, made to Raphael Amado, when he had come to collect for Marcus's sins.
There two sides to a story , two sides to the truth but only one side to honor, one man's righteousness is another man's end except in this case it was a contract , drawn to be nothing more than a insurance of sorts or was it a piece of paper written from a thousand lies, either way now it was time to reclaim the spoils from the greedy hands that never knew enough.
Sofia Guardia was only 17 when she found out she was sold to a stranger or what her grandfathe ...more

5 HONORABLE CROWNS
Wow! Just WOW! This is my first Natasha Knight book, and it will not be last. It is sexy, suspenseful, and romantic in its own dark way. I seriously love every minute of this story.
Part of the reason I enjoyed this book so much is Raphael. I shouldn't love him, I know this, but he is so much more than this unrelenting anti-hero. He is damaged, and his need for revenge is understandable. Even his anger and tendency towards physical aggression is ...more
This is absolute love and mayhem.
Truly,I was sucked into the story instantly and the instant sync with the characters and story was fantastic. I was completely involved and excited for the good parts ;)
The flow and the progression..everything was thoroughly satisfying.
The steam level..well..
There were some sigh inducing scenes.. some that made me jealous of Sofia..
Now,onto the characters that I LOVED with a passion..
He comes off as a crazy,messed ...more

I shuddered at the sweep of cold air that rushed me when the basilica doors opened. They carried a warning. An omen.
My husband-to-be stood at the head of the aisle dressed in black from head to toe, opposite my bridal white.
Like a funeral.
Like my funeral.
He was striking, even if I hated him. His victorious eyes devoured me whole without ever leaving my own, trapping me, predator and prey. I wondered if his mouth was watering, saliva wet on his tongue, as he ...more
“My cock twitched, but it wasn't just a fuck I wanted. It was so much more. A claiming. A taking. An owning.”
It has been awhile since I've read something as like this, a man wanting a bride as a payment for a debt owed to him to exact revenge he thinks he deserved and a woman, barely but is aged beyond experience although a little naiveté, who would do anything to be loved and saved her sister from the horrors of the world.
Raphael Amado is a mysterious and dangerous man with secrets ...more
It wasn't what I expected. I know I keep saying it, but I can't help it. I love story's as this one, when the alpha claims the h as a debt. Did I missed it what kind of dog Charlie is, or wasn't it mentioned? The grandfather gave me the creeps and that was weird because he was kind of "nice".
I would've loved to give 5 stars but sometimes it was like hot, cold, hot and that was a bit confusing. At times I hated him and at times I loved him.
I would recommend this one to everyone, it isn' ...more
"We were all pawns in a twisted game".
There are so many layers and twists and turns in Dishonourable. A story of revenge, debt,Hate, betrayal, lies all wrapped up in the game of greed and in the midst was Sophia,18 years old,innocent, beautiful inside & out to be used as payment for a debt not of her own.
Raphael had gone to Sophia's Grandfather for debts unpaid to seek revenge, what he received was Sophia until she was 21 and then to claim her inheritance.
Sophia was to be marri ...more
I never know quite what to expect from a Natasha Knight dark romance...except that I will get heart palpitations, shivery feels and be CONSUMED from start to finish!!!!!!! Well, DISHONORABLE checked off all those boxes and then some!!!
I am not sure how she does it but each tale this fan-favorite author pens is somehow even more brilliant and beautifully nuanced than the last!!!! This book is chock full o ...more
I will admit that I am not usually a reader of dark romance. I love angst and suspense, however I am usually unable to connect to the characters and/or the storyline. But when it comes to Natasha Knight’s novels I can never say no. There is something about them. Although dark and twisty, they just pull you in and never let you go. Dishonorable was no different. This was my favorite of hers to date.
“Take care when fighting the monsters you don’t ...more
First of all the title of the book Dishonorable instills something both dangerous and forbidden. Yes and this definitely lived up to that. When my eyes read the first word of this book, I was pulled in. I was dragged into a world of darkness and I just wanted to be part of it. I was so blown away by this book that I found myself shaking m ...more
Sexy, Sinful and Captivating .. DisHonorable is a 5 Star Must Read.
What did I just read, OH my GOD I devoured this book in one sitting. I could not put it down because I refused to let go of the characters and the story. Passion, intrigue, danger, love .. this book had it ALL. If you are a lover of dark, mafia romance then this has to be a one click must for you.
Raphael Amado is a man out for revenge. His plan is simple but the execution wi ...more
As the wise Confucius stated, "Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves." Raphael is determined to collect on a family debt. Its so funny (not haha funny but "wtf" funny) how Raphael believes Sophia will come willingly and as timid as a beaten mouse.
Sophia is flamboozled when she discovers the so-called debt that has absolutely NOTHING to do with her! Who does this? I mean are we in the stone ages or what? What does Raphael hope to gain from his collection? It won't ...more
review by Jen Skewes
After reading the blurb for Dishonorable and knowing that it was Ms. Knight that was writing it, I knew it would be raw, gritty and intense. And that is exactly what I love about her writing and her stories. And Dishonorable was no different. Ms. Knight certainly delivered with this one.
Raphael is out for revenge and the one way that he knows how to get it is through Sofia. And her grandfather had no problem using her to pay his debt. On her eighteenth birthday Raph ...more
