She was a just girl when I first met her, and even then, my future belonged to the church. I would be a priest in six month's time.

The mind is willing but the flesh is weak took on a whole new meaning with her. But I was good. I kept away. I didn't mislead her. Tempt her.

Tempt her. What a joke.

She was innocent, but tempt me she did.

I could give us this. Couldn’t I?
This sin.
What price would we be made to pay? And could I ask God to punish me? Only me?
What would this cost her?


The last time Damon and Lina saw each other was two years ago, they had plans for their life. But when they met each other again after two years, Lina wasn't doing what she was supposed to do! She was supposed to be in Chicago in school, not in a club in New York, playing piano, and living in the club owner’s apartment./>I

descriptionThis cover is pretty bad. Mostly because it looks like two dudes hugging. This is NOT an M/M book. I actually think the tattooed one is supposed to be a woman like the heroine in the book. Unfortunately, as a friend pointed out, she appears to be sporting some wicked sideburns. So not a great cover, but don't let that deter you as the book was AWESOME!desc</span>

descriptionI had to go back and check because I was SURE I had read at least one book by this author previously but low and behold I had not! Clearly, that is an oversight I will be correcting in the very near future.

I LOVED this book. The writing was fantastic, and the plot was engaging. The pace was (mostly) spot on. It was sexy and dirty. It had twists and turns. It had action. It had angst. It had drama. It had secrets. It had interesting secondary characters. Sofia and Raphael from Dishonorable feature somewhat in it. I haven't read that book YET but if you have then I am sure you know that the hero of this book is Raphael's twin brother and the heroine is Sofia's sister. We also get a brief glimpse at Raphael and Damon's brother Zach. Call me intrigued to read more about him.

description

Both main characters were extremely likable. I did think that Lina came across a bit...too stupid to live naive at times. Especially concerning her interactions with the Russian mob but I found her an enjoyable heroine for the most part. Damon...now Damon was HOT. He was Dominate and angry and spanky. All things I love in a hero.

So like I said I enjoyed this one. It was just about a 5-Star read. I did find that after the BIG drama the book dragged a little for me. Probably the last 20% or so could have moved along a little faster. In any case, this still gets the huge two thumbs up from yours truly.description

Disgraced is an erotic romance novel that has all the elements of a successful spanking romance: an alpha hero, a feisty heroine, hot spankings, and a solid plot and writing. This book is a yummy treat. It has a good storyline and is seriously HOT!!!!

I love it when an author takes me out of my comfort zone if only for a little bit, and makes me her hostage. I really didn’t know what to expect when it came to this story and I’m glad that I took a chance and got to witness Damon and Katalina’s love story.

While visiting her sister when she was sixteen, Katalina met the very handsome Damon Amado. He was kind, charming, and the type of guy you picture spending your entire life with. But aside from the fact that he was legally off limi

This was one helluwa ride...


Damon & Lina delivered a story of wrong/right choices, naivety, strength, love in many different shapes and forms, faith and undulated passion...that can take you through any length and time...

Damon Amado met Katalina/Lina Garcia when she was merely 16 and he was being on his way to be ordained/become a priest at the age of 24. They had a deep connection beyond physical attraction, and knowing it was wrong, Damon stepped away from temptation and torment, denying it, denying her.

After the huge downtime...

Meet Damon. The younger twin brother of Raphael Amado. He is sexy, dark... and also about to become a priest. He should of been a priest years ago, but doubts always held him back.

UPDATE: I just realised that there is another book, Dishonorable, that it's actually the story of Sofia and Raphael (the sister and brother of Lina and Damon) and it takes place before the events of this book. I wish I knew it before reading this one...then everything would have made more sense to me!

REVIEW:

This is the story of Lina and Damon.

The story started quite nicely. There was tension, excitment, darkness, mystery. I really liked it. The plot was interesting

If it's a battle between God and the woman you love, who would you choose?



THE CHARACTERS

Twin to Dishonorable's cocky Raphael Amado, I thought Damon Amado would be the passive and more angelic version of his brother. But guess what? A blue-eyed beauty won't be named Damon for no reason, eh? He's a walking temptation, making girls and women around him sell themselves to the devil because why not? He's an alpha and this man says and does the filthiest things I will never mention here.Oh, and did I say he's a soon to b

I was so curious to see what I would think of it and I actually enjoyed it! I'm in no way religious, I have respect for believes. But not one myself. So I was a bit anxious if I would enjoy it!
What bothered me a lot was the model on the cover has tattoo's and Damon doesn't have tattoo's nor did he get ones.. Or did I miss that?

But for being a man who wants to become a priest he sure does have a dirty mouth! I gasped a few times because I couldn't believe it! I liked it but at t

I had a feeling that Damon & Lina had some type of history between them in Dishonorable and I knew I was going to need to read their story!!!

Damon has always felt guilty because Raphael always took the brunt of the punishment instead of him so he found a way to atone for his sins by becoming a priest. Well he thought that is what he wanted until Lina barrels into his life and turns it upside down.

Lina was supposed to be working on her schooling and enjoying her life but she's gotten hersel

Disgraced is book 2 in The Amado Brothers series and while I enjoyed book 1 I loved this one. Damon was fantastic and I loved everything about him, even his indecision about whether or not he truly wanted to be a priest. It wasn't an easy road for him to travel but his love for Lina finally made his decision. Lina was also a wonderful character while she was naïve and made poor decisions I totally understood why she choose to try and handle things herself instead of involvin

Rating: 2.5 Stars

Disgraced is an erotic taboo story and it’s hawt *fans self* It’s short, to the point and definitely had some memorable moments.

The story was decent but the characters needed a bit more of a build up for me to really connect with them. Because of that, the angst was minimal (although this did pick up more towards the second half). Damon did run hot and cold with Lina and that derailed some of their chemistry. As for Lina, I found myself questioning some of the logic behind

I am not a massive mafia romance fan, but at this point, I'm pretty confident in my belief that Natasha Knight is one of my favorite authors in the dark Mafia genre. With Disgraced she gives us another erotic romance involving the mafia that has an almost priest (priests being one of my very favorite forbidden story elements) who I am ridiculously in love with. This can technically be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading Dishonorable first so you get the full impact of Lina and Damon's ba ...more

It's my thing... well, that and MC romance.
I never pass on a chance to read anything dark-ish, and Natasha Knight can write some mean dark romance. I've read Dishonorable before Disgraced ,but you can read this as a standalone if you will, even though we were already introduced with two main characters in Dishonorable.

Everything about this book was simply HOT. Even if you look at

Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I love dark and taboo novels. They make me uncomfortable and may shock me at times but I love them. Natasha Knight is one of those writers where I will drop EVERYTHING to read her. Her books are thought-provoking, sexy as all hell and filled with an alpha hero and the sassy heroine who eventually brings him to his knees. This book fit that to a Tee. I absolutely FLOVED Dishonorable and could not wait to get my grabby little hands on Disgraced.

I might have been more invested in the characters if I'd read the previous book. That being said it was good, and read well as a standalone too. The best parts featured the villain's secret society sex club. I never connected that much with the couple.

I was one of the few who craved Damon and Lina's story ever since I met them in Dishonorable. There was such a magnetic story that I begged for. When I got the book, I screamed in excitement because there was so much between Damon and Lina that needed to be explored more. Disgraced definitely impressed me. I actually liked this more than Dishonorable. Disgraced was a big package of suspense , drama that pulled me in from the first sentence to the last.

With Disgraced, I'm discovering a new (to me) author, whose universe totally gripped me. I haven't read Dishonored, and you don't need to in order to appreciate Disgraced but I recommend it since Lina and Damon's story is introduced in that first installment. I'll definitively read it the first chance I get, and I'm also looking forward Zach's book !

I always go into a Natasha Knight read expecting a dark, twisted, and slightly depraved story - and in that respect, she didn't disappoint with this one.

Damon is in the seminary, on the cusp of being ordained, but he's haunted by his past feelings for Lina, who he's more than shocked to run into in a NYC bar. The last he heard she was in college in Chicago. Instead, over the last two years, she's gotten involved with the Russian mob.

This mob subplot was entertaining enough, but wher

Ugh!! *cue eye roll* Lina was one of the most annoying heroines. The whole book was a constant retelling of her stupidity. I was looking forward to the story of Lina and Damon since Dishonorable. This book was a huge disappointment, somehow I missed the naïveté of Lina in book 1. Especially to this degree. IMO she went from making naive decisions to being flat out dumb. And let's not overlook the punishments Damon inflicted on her, it was not sexy. I can't explain why, because I've read scenes s ...more

Title: Disgraced
Author: Natasha Knight
Genre: Romance, Erotica
Rating: 4/5

This is the story of Lina and Damon who were reunited after years apart. Damon had walked away before but this time he's going nowhere, however this is no run of the mill romance in a matter of months Damon's about to be an ordained priest and Lina has connections to the Russian mafia, talk about complications.

Yasssss...now that's what I'm talking about!!! The more I need from Dishonorable I got it in Disgraced. Raphael's twin brother Damon served me up hot, dominant soon to be priest on a silver platter and I want seconds please!!! This book was really good..you can never go wrong with a forbidden romance involving a man of the cloth ...mmm hmmm. Now I'm extremely curious about the third and youngest Amado brother, Zach. Will there be a book for him..is there a book for him?? I need answers!!

All consuming - a pure rush of adrenaline and lust - Disgraced was nothing like I expected and everything I could have wanted.

I squealed, out loud, when I heard the news- Damon and Lina were getting a story. I shouted it from the rooftops. Okay, maybe just on social media, to all of my book friends, and around my office. After finishing Dishonorable I crossed my fingers and my toes, hoping for Knight to give us more of these two characters. Even in my wildest dreams, I would not have dreamed of

These are my Happily Ever After Novel Thoughts...

I was so excited to get Lina's and Damon's story! I couldn't wait to get to know them a bit better. Getting to know them wasn't hard and their chemistry was just as strong now as it was in Dishonorable.

I did like this story, though I didn't love it. Damon's character seemed a bit crass, to me, for someone who has been studying in the seminary for over four years. In some instances he was down right vulgar. I know it's fiction, but I l
