I still feel a bit confused, because, for the first time in any of these novels, I actually really liked the main female character!

I was excited about Remo's book, because, let's be honest here, he is the kind of character I like. I love how cruel and twisted he is. And I feared he would just turn into a nice, lovestruck slob.

When the pairing with Serafina was revealed, I was not convinced. I wanted some really strong character. Why not some mercenary? That would be fun.

However, I loved Serafin

Cora Reilly's highly anticipated third installment in the Camorra Chronicles is a jaw-dropping, mind-blowing and awe-inspiring emotional rollercoaster you soon won't forget. It will ruin you for all other Mafia books. Mark my words! Cora's ability to write cruel bad boys with a heart is hands down unsurpassed. This story is fast paced and has a well-developed, character-driven plot full of angsty twists and turns you didn't see coming. Enemies to lovers is one of my absolute favorite

Cora mentioned in her Facebook group, that this was her best-written book to date. Well, she wasn’t lying.

This series just seems to get better and better with each book that is released.

Saying I loved this book is not enough. So whatever is more than Love, but yet not quite I'm-Sending-Out-Save-The-Dates-And-Marrying-A-Paperback stage, is where I am with this book.


I was in fictional LUST with Nino's story in Twisted Emotions, I thought about that book for WEEKS after reading it
ARC Review:
Remo Falcone, a man considered to be cruel and beyond redemption decides to kidnap an Outfit bride as retribution. Serafine Mione, a bride regarded for her innocence and beauty, now a pawn in his twisted game. They discover that neither is quite what the other thought, but each are intent on winning this game...

I wish I could find the words to express what this book made me feel. Remo Falcone has been my favorite character ever since he stepped into my fictional world in Twisted Loyal

After devouring Twisted Pride from the amazingly talented Cora Reilly, I can tell you without a doubt, that this book is the best she's ever written! 5 stars are simply not enough to rate it. It deserves 10!!!! If you think that you are prepared for what's waiting for you, then please let me laugh at you maniacally for a second. Because you sure as hell are not! I strongly suggest to keep tissues and booze ready, because this book will tear your heart into shreds!!! But don

Pride was the only weapon I had, and I would hold on to it until the very end.

Mafia romance is my jam. The darker, the better. And when I first saw the blurb to this story, I knew this had to be my first Cora Reilly book.

After finishing, I'll admit I have very conflicting emotions about how I feel about it. On the one hand, I struggled to connect to the heroine and the way she was painted to be so naive and complacent in the beginning. On the other hand, the more I read, the more conn

“Your pride will be your downfall,” I said.
“And your fury will be yours.”
“Then we’ll fall together. Isn’t that the beginning of every tragic love story?”
“We won’t have a love story. Not a tragic one, not a sad one, and definitely not a happy one. You can have my hatred,” Serafina said fiercely.
“I’ll take it,” I murmured. “Hatred is so much stronger than love.”

I am questioning myself why I'm so fond of Remo Falcone. His dark sense of humor, sarcasm and cruel demeanor. All these qualities piqued my interest and I knew behind those characteristics lies a goodness in him. Being the Capo of the Camorra Syndicate, he should be tough, ruthless and cunning. He rules the Las Vegas and everyone is intimidated by him. I never thought he'll settle down with a woman because this guy is a manwhore until Serafina.

"You are an angel, and I'm your ruin."
Great addition to the series!

I'm a little in awe right now, because I really thought Cora Reilly had painted - or written - herself into a corner with Remo Falcone.
"We are the Camorra. We have our own set of rules, our own brand of honor."
To my mind, it just wasn't possible to write a romance novel about such a violent man - one who has absolutely no redeeming qualities. Something would have to give, right? Either Remo would have to un

after much pain and tears, I finally got my ARC, no thanks to my Kindle being an uppity AHOLE.

I can't explain it but I held my breath the entire time I was reading this book.

I just can't explain it. Hence, dramatic

So good,oh so good I have no words.
Everytime Remo and Serafina were together, my heart went NUTS ..and that plot twist that I never could,in a million years, entertain but then it was the best thing I did not know I needed..

Remo & Serafina are next level reluctant with their hate/lust, but DAMN Cora did the damn thing with this story!

"I wanted nothing less than every last part of her. Her innocence, her heart, her soul, her body. Her purity and her darkness. I would take everything."

Twisted Pride is definitely my favorite in The Camorra Chronicles. I have been anxiously waiting for Remo's story to come out, and I have to say that I wasn't disappointed. First of all, I love that the story took place over a longer period of time. It really felt like a complete story and

One of the biggest issues I had with this series can be found in this book as well - the way main characters treat prostitutes as "whores" and that leaves a bitter taste in my mouth every time. There is also a scene at the beginning with Remo having sex (but I'd rather use the word "raping") a "whore." It was terrible to read and but also very unrealistic of him to spare Serafina of the same fate later on. I see that the author glorifies virginity but seriously, that shit needs to stop.

Okay. This is probably the most anticipated book from the Camorra Chronicles since we got a taste of Remo Falcone’s crazy in Bound by Love and Twisted Loyalties.

Not only is he the Capo of Las Vegas, oldest brother of the four Falcones (excluding Ryan – sorry Ryan), total badass alpha, and has the aura of power, darkness, unpredictability and is all around loco (at least in public).. it’s

This is the story of Remo Falcone Capo of the Camorra and Serafina mafia princess and beloved niece of the Boss of the Outfit, The Camorra's sworn enemies.
Kidnapped on the way to her wedding by Remo and his family what starts out as an ingenious way to bring her family to its knees soon becomes so much more as Remo and Serafina take starring roles in there own bizarre courtship.
So I really adored Twisted pride, no one can write mafia romances like This particular author and she has yet to produc

Of course I got the ARC downloaded onto my kindle on the day I have three classes instead of one. I spent the entire day thinking of the book. I even got so impatient that in my last class I completely ignored my professor and read a few chapters. It was SO worth the hype. I got home at 4 and finished the book close to 10 at night. I loved it so much.
The one thing I love about Cora’s mafia romance is we follow characters who are apart of the Famiglia in NY, the Outfit in Chicago, and

Gah!! What else can I say about one of the best books I have ever read? Cora Reilly absolutely killed it with Remo Falcone's book as the Devil we have all waited for finally met the Angel who brought him to his knees. And what a woman she was! Serafina was absolutely magnificent. She was proud, brave and sassy and the strongest woman to go head to head with the Cruelest Man of the West. I absolutely loved them together and could not put this down!

those of you who don't know who or what i'm talking about...well, damn...your loss *wink*

3.75 simply cause of Remo and Serafina

The storyline had loops and cracks in pulling the whole plot in, I barely wanted to finish it...but like I 've said, these two characters bring the full front and carry the weight of all the lacking in the story.

urrghhh why can't i get the best of both worlds when it comes to this series? it's always one or the other. i mean, it's either the romance is great but the plot sucks or vice versa.

i'm usually easily intrigued and impressed by the enemies to lovers trope. unfortunately, this book just didn't do it for me. i thought remo would change my mind about him through this book, but eww he's nasty and i still don't like him. also, the author just loved pointing out how cruel he was throughout the book. o

Twisted Pride was probably my most anticipated read of April. Since I read Twisted Loyalties I knew Remo was going to be one of my favourite characters through this series and he was until this particular book. I feel like he wasn't himself at all. He was supposed to be cruel and ruthless and a total maniac but he acted like a softie until the very end. The only cruel thing about him were the author's descriptions. 'His cruel smile', 'his cruel, blach heart' and so on. It got so tedious

Ever since Remo’s character was introduced in Twisted Loyalties, to say I was intrigued by his psychotic mind would be an understatement. Then when it came to Twisted Emotions, where fragments of Remo’s diabolical plan were revealed, it was a given that Twisted Pride would be something explosive, sinister and unexpected.

At first I thought no book was ever going to come as near as amazing as Twisted Emotions. I was completely and utterly wrong. Twisted pride was pure...perfection. Remo and Serafina were pure perfection. When I read the first page I took a deep breath and didn't exhale until I finished. I have never been this emotionally invested and connected with characters like i was with Remo and Serafina. I loved every scene with Savio, Kiara and Adamo. I am going count each

I just finished reading Twisted Emotions, and I have no words. It was incredible. I cannot believe Cora Reilly when she mentioned that Nino's character was so difficult to write because she did an absolutely amazing representation of him. It wouldn't have been desirable any other way.
I cannot imagine how Remo is going to fall in love with Serafina. All I know is that she needs to be a sassy mouthed woman, who has the answer to all of Remo's comebacks. It will make their relationship really sexy

I read this book in one sitting but it was so much to digest that I really had to sit on it for 24 hours before I could adequately convey how AMAZING this book truly was. As always, Cora does not disappoint.

The ending of Twisted Emotions felt incomplete to me but after reading Twisted Pride I completely understand why she couldn't write any more about the couple since it infringed upon Remo and Serafina's story. So, if you're like me and felt like a part of you was missing, you won't be disappo
