I enjoyed it, but didn't love it.

It happened all so fast.. That's what bothered e a bit I guess because it was all so fast.
But still the blurb spoke to me and made the book very good.
Still I have a bit of hate for her mother.. I know, I know it's not she herself but the alcohol talking,
but still that's very low and mean!

So don't take my review to heart, because it isn't because I found it to fast that you will feel the same.

I'm sorry for the short review, but I'm not sure what all I can mention.

Ok I did not expect to like this book at all.
The first book Dirty Dom was not for me it was straight drama and mostly smut.
However, this story started the same with them having a physical relationship before they even know each other. It reads like porn to me honestly.
This changes fast but it still had me cringing and going WTF every few minutes.
And this is why it took me so long to read it.
Until the mid way mark.
Then, we finally have a story that you can get behind.
Yes there is drama Lam

3.5 to 4 stars

Elle is a good girl who's working hard but is being dragged down in life and debt by her alcoholic mother. All she does is work, she's no friends and she's still a virgin and after yet another argument she finds herself struggling to concentrate on her studies.

I'm not going to give this a star rating because I read it knowing that I probably wasn't going to like it based on my feelings for Dirty Dom . I can't really fault the book for being pretty much all the things I hate, I shouldn't have read it at all.

BUT because earlier this week I read these amazing freaking stories Crow & Reaper, I have developed a mafia men obsession so I'm trying books I would never have otherwise considered. (This same thing happened back in January when I decided to t

Ok so I really enjoyed the first book but this book was very underwhelming for me. Vince was no prize and Elle was like a wet noodle:(

Very disappointed:(

For the love of... Damn that first half of the book was stupid and pointless. It would've been way better with out the roofies and stupidity.

Mind you stupidity was all over the damn place. Please see example #1, as it pretty much tells you the stupidity of this particular messed up piece of ... book?

'I feel like a king. Her king. I'm her entire world right now. I rule over her body. I own her.'
MF if you said that out loud with me around...
And then some of this.

And Elle you stupid stupid virgin
Five stars for " His Hostage ".
Well written, hard to put down book!

When Elle Hawthorne came home from school to help her Alcoholic mother and hopefully get her in rehab she had high hopes of being able to continue her education but trying g to concentrate at home was more and more problematic. Elle has found a spot to study at least she believes so, she has Found the Valetti Family Bistro which looks like a quite place to study and have a drink or two ; but once inside, she encounters something

Mob/Mafia romances are a hit and miss for me. It hard to find one that I like because they always trip one of my many triggers. His Hostage was a pleasant surprise. We have Elle, a goody two shoes girl that was in the wrong place and at the wrong time.

And we have Vince, the Don’s son. Like the typical bad boy mafia prince he is, what he wants he normally gets. When he lays on Elle it’s lust at first glance. The chemistry between this dirty talking alpha and his sweet Elle is HOT! Although not e

This is one of the best mafia books I have read in a long time and I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The story covers Elle, the daughter of a alcoholic mother going into a Italian family restaurant to study and accidentally sees a man covered in blood and obviously being tortured. Vince, the son of Leo the head of the Vaeletti mafia family abducts Elle and decides that she is going to belong to him and that's it. What you will find in this story is drama, suspense, action, abduc ...more

It honestly wasn't terrible

But it was a bit far fetched and cliche. Typical stuff but I didn't hate it, just didn't like it either.
Romanticamente Fantasy
Anche se la trama è differente dal primo volume della saga, le vicende seguono la stessa traccia. Si passa in pochi giorni dal sesso all’amore, al matrimonio, ai figli; le donne arrivano ad accettare il controllo del marito sulla propria vita e si trasformano in umili cagnolini e fanno loro da incubatrici.

" Non posso evitare che il solo pensiero di portare in grembo suo figlio mi faccia desiderare di averlo dentro di me.
Mi sento viva tra le sue braccia. Voglio perdermi nel suo tocco."

This is the second book in the Valetti Crime Family series. After reading the first one, I was hoping for Dom's brother to get a book... and here it is. Our H is Vincent Valetti and our h is Elle Hawthorne.

Vince is an underboss for the Valetti family. His brother is Dom (from the 1st book) and his father is the boss. He is a hard man that demands respect and his father's approval means more to him than anything. He is sitting at the bistro, owned by the mob, while his cousins are finishing up in

Amazing read by Willow Winters. This is a story about Elle, whose mother is an alcoholic who gets involved with one man after another and now she is living with Elle with no income. There is so much weight on Elle's shoulders and she just needs to go to a bar and get a drink and study for her exams. She spots a little place and goes inside. Once she is there she pulls out her laptop but notices she does not have Wi-Fi. All the while Vince is watching her. He walks over and sits down at the table ...more

DNF... Ooookay. I'm so sick of the unrealistic reactions with characters. I don't know about you but looking at someone who's good looking doesn't make my body go into a meltdown & turn my panties into a waterfall. And I don't know anyone else that this happens to. When shit hits the fan & Vince is trying to get information from Elle to see what she remembers seeing, he treats her like all she said & does is entirely her fault. She's done nothing wrong but is being treated like she d ...more

If you're a fan of filthy-talking, hot, possessive bad boy stories, this is the book for you. His Hostage is a fast-paced story with an interesting story-line, great characters, and a great mix of suspense, drama, romance, turmoil, and so much more.

3.5 solid stars. Good story with good characters and some hot steamy times. Alittle fast moving and some insta lust. But hay this is a mafia book and they do and take what and who they want. Good read with new author. Free at time of review.

Had to be bit open minded with this one. Hard to explain but the story was good not too intense. Decent mafia book.

Another mafia book, another dark and intense reading for sure.
His Hostage tells the stories of Vicent and Elle.
Vicent is the underboss of the Valetti family and he's a very hot and sexy man. He's full of himself and has every right to be that way because one look at him and you're doomed. He can have all the woman in the planet for his pleasure and that's it. No strings attached, no relationship, nothing. But things can change in a sec. One single look at Ella and things will change.

His Hostage is a story that will hold you captive from start to finish. It is dark, gritty, so so steamy but ultimately it is a love story like no other. Vince and his Sweetheart Elle will have you on a roller coaster as you take the journey with them to discover that even though their relationship started off oh so wrong, it might just be more than right.

A definite improvement compared to the first, but still one too many "wtf" factors to be considered a personal favorite.

This was a hot little read. It’s the second book in the series and just as exciting as the first. The author writes intense male characters and I really like that about her writing.
