Dark Mafia Romance

I’m the first born son of the mafia king. The favorite. Destined to rule, I’m a dangerous man, a ruthless one. But in my world, you have to be.

Then Natalie stumbles into my life. Wrong place. Wrong time.

Twice, fate put her in my path.
Twice, fate placed the innocent lamb at the mercy of the monster.

Damn... It is hard to put into words what I feel... I'm at a loss. I felt so much. The author doesn't hold anything back... TRUST me. You don't want her to. I felt so much for the main characters, Sergio and Natalie. My heart is being squeezed but it is the best type of pain. I believe that every reader needs a story that will make them stop and stare. They need a story that will make you laugh in small moments and be sad in others.

There is a poem, which suits this book so well. It suits Sergio

Sergio by Natasha Knight – 10 stars

Sergio Benedetti, the eldest son of Franco Benedetti, the one to rule when his time comes.
The strong, powerful and ruthless prince waiting to take over the kingdom of the dark world he was born into, what he wasn’t supposed to do is to fall in love with someone so different from the world he was used to, someone as sweet and innocent as Nathalie Gregorian.

Sergio’s and Nathalie’s story isn’t the usual boy meets girl kind of story.
Their story starts of darker tha

I can't really do a traditional review of this book. This author is a fantastic writer of that there is no doubt, so please don't take this review as negative. There was a lot that was good for sure. That said, the author explains in a note at the beginning that Sergio was a secondary character in another book and she had no plans on writing a story about him. I *think* perhaps, in my opinion, he should have remained a secondary character.

I am destroyed!!!
Sergio by Natasha Knight has ripped my heart out and stomped all over it.
Leaving behind a bloody mangled mess.


I knew exactly what I was getting myself into from the get-go.
So I have nobody else to blame but my own stubborn arse for thinking I could handle the fallout of such a profound and deeply emotional read.
I am not saying a word about plotline or character development, what made this good, what got on my proverbial wick.

What can I say about Sergio that won’t be considered a spoiler? Absolutely NOTHING but i will try. I can tell you Sergio is my favorite Benedetti brother. I can tell you his story is violent but beautiful. I can tell you Sergio loves hard and he loves forever. In spite of being the Underboss of one of the most notorious and violent mafia families in the world, he’s managed to maintain a portion of humanity. I can tell you Sergio managed to save his soul not once but twice. Her name is Natalie. I ...more

Again Natasha Knight has excelled with her new book… There are no words for how I feel about it. It has to be one of the darkest (if not the darkest) books I've ever read by this author. There were parts of this book that made me sick to my stomach, parts that tore my heart from my chest and parts that made me want to weep. This was so dark and so brutal. Sergio was a monster, where as Natalie was an angel.

Sergio and Natalie’s story is compelling in its own right. A story of romance and love th

There are tons of book boyfriends we love. There are the sweet ones, funny, cocky... the list could go on. One of my favorites is the dark, broken ones. They're like puzzles you wanna figure out. They have walls you can't wait for their heroines to break. They could say the nastiest things but when they fall? They fall HARD.

CRY ME A RIVER - NO, A DANG-BLASTED OCEAN! Natasha Knight gave her all in writing "Sergio: A Dark Mafia Romance" and then some! Some summaries/author's notes are used to trap you into reading the book, well this one was too accurate:

Author’s Note: Sergio: a Dark Mafia Romance is an intensely emotional, steamy and dark standalone romance set in the Benedetti Brothers Mafia world. Be prepared: this is not a traditional love story.

To me, this was a romantic tragedy...

I loved everything about Sergio's book. I know that this would be sad. This would gut me but I still wanted to read it. I had to know.

Sergio is a dangerous and powerful man. He is next in line to be the boss and the favorite child of his father. His mission is to protect the family at all cost. When Natalie stumbles in the warehouse and witness something she shouldn't, he needs to ensure that she keeps her mouth shut.

If you have read the Benedetti Brothers series than this storyline will not be a surprise. While it is definitely not traditional, as the author warns, it is an unconventional yet heartfelt love story that has left me gutted…

Sergio is a family man. Family and loyalty are everything along with honor and truth. How is that possible in this violent world? I’m not sure, but he and his brothers pull it off… When he saves Lucia not once, but twice, their fate is sealed…

Not sure what to expect other than a dark kinky read, this book threw me for a loop. I'm not sure if I have completely reconciled what I read. This is part of a trilogy yet it can be read as a standalone. I have not read the first two books in this series and I think it is probably better that I did not. I wouldn't have been so painfully shocked.

This book is all about Sergio. As the eldest of three, he stands to inherit his father's thrown as Mafia king. He is ruthless and chased by personal dem

Hard as it was, this books a gift......

Sergio is a character, the oldest, the heir of this Mafia family and he plays a big role in the first two books. Salvatore and Dominic. He’s a character who is talked about and missed.

I get it.

The author did a fabulous job bringing him alive. I cared about this character in the last two books. I cared about his wife Natalie. I wanted their story.

It was beautiful and quick, but the theme you get throughout, the premonitions from the author is time is running

I’ve only read two previous book by this author. I’ve not read the two Benedetti Brothers books either and I’m so glad I haven’t as I can now go back and enjoy them after getting a sneak peek of them in this story.

Wow Sergio. When you want something you’ll just take it no matter what. As soon as you saw Natalie you knew you wanted more from her.
Sergio and Natalie are amazing together. Their chemistry is so hot. Their story is so good yet heartbreaking at the same time.

I am literally crying as I am writing this review. I just had to write my feelings. I could not leave my emotions all over without writing them out till I get over this fantastic and devastating book. Natasha Knight, what have you done to me? I do not know Natalie Knight is a cruel woman or just a cruel genius. But either way, she slays all the time. Her books just make me so damn weak on my knees.

Sergio Benedetti is the firstborn son of a mafia king. He is the favourite and destined to rule. He is cold, cruel and unfeeling. He is also unforgiving, manipulative, powerful and damn sexy.

Natalie was in the wrong place at the wrong time twice in her life and in both instances, it led her to Sergio. This time, Sergio will not let her go. FOREVER. NO MATTER WHAT.

I needed to exhale a huge breath before writing this review. I think I was holding my breath anticipating something that was not going

“I’m just a man, Natalie…flesh and bone…and you make me want.”

Dark Mafia Romance: there’s something about the gritty, edgy stories with a menacing anti-hero whose heart beats for the woman he loves that make our book hearts race! These type of reads are our weakness, and whilst we do have our 'go to' authors who always deliver the rawness, the danger and the intense passion required in this theme, it’s also one of our thrills to discover new authors, and we thank Natasha Knight,

OMG!!! Stunned!!!

Okay, I'm not going to give anything away but seriously stunned with the outcome of this story and so unexpected. Natalie and Sergio were a little hard for me to grasp at first on their chemistry as I felt it a bit forced and it didn't have any spark but boy was I wrong 😂.

The one who made this story breathtakingly and heartbreakingly good was Sergio and I do feel a little disappointed with how their story ended that's why I rated it with four stars.

I received an ARC of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Natasha Knight!

This is the second Natasha Knight book I have read, and I have to say that she is turning out to be a one-click author for me. The way she just captivates the reader with her words and emotions is just - for lack of better word - amazing. She transports you and really makes you feel what her characters are feeling.

I knew going into this book that I would be destroyed. I knew it. If you read books one and two, we knew what to expect. But I absolutely loved Salvatore and Dominic and always had questions about Sergio. We knew what his story was from hearing about him in his brothers' books but to see the dark hero and all his sexy goodness, love and heartbreak. Gahh!! Absolutely amazing!!

Sergio is the third book in Natasha Knight’s Benedetti Brothers series, although in the timeline this story takes place first. Unlike the prior books, however, this book is not your typical romance. If you are looking for a happily ever after, this is not the book for you. This is a book for fans of the Benedetti Brothers looking for more details about Sergio and Natalie.
