He still owns me.

His wicked touch ruins me, corrupts me into wanting things I shouldn’t. Now I’m no longer an unwilling prisoner, but rather an eager participant.

The need for ecstasy, and the burn to be consumed by my captor makes it impossible for me to hate him. I know I should, but I can’t. Not when my body obeys him so willingly.

But the tables have turned, and a stro

Waiting is fuckin I finished reading highly expected sequel Blood & vows

Bella J has done it again...

*my bows*

The conclusion to Castello & Tatum's as dark as it can possible be, it's heavy in subject and suffocatingly crippling, it's triggering, challenging and sometimes disturbing and yet I found the spark of light, just like they did while pushing through the limits of their existence, seeking sense and meaning in the accumulated pain, gore, betrayal and lies... a

In book 1 Blood & Lies Castello had a plan…
“Kidnap the golden girl of the Linscott family, then lure her father straight down to the hell I had specially prepared for both of them. And once I had my fun, extracted every last drop of revenge I craved from them, they would pay the ultimate price with their lives.”

But somehow Tatum gets under Castello’s skin and his plans change. Which brings us to book 2 Blood & Vows. The conclusion to Castello & Tatum's story and it is dark, sexy and delicious.

I received a copy and voluntarily left an honest review.

If you, like me, found yourself deeply invested in Tatum and Costello from Blood & Lies, the first book in the Twisted Duet, and wondered if there were any secrets left to unearth and anymore twisted desires to be played out between these two, never fear. Bella J. is back with the completion of their story in Blood & Vows and ready to seduce us to go further into the web of deceit and betrayal weaved around the Fattore family to watch the

This is the stunning conclusion to Tatum and Castello's story. This book was another gripping can't put it it down hot read!

Part two was filled with just as much darkness, lies and treachery as the first book. Not really knowing the truth until the end.

I highly recommend both books in this series and look forward to more gripping stories from Bella J!

Blood & Vows is the awaited conclusion to Blood & Lies.

The plan was simple kidnap the girl and have blood thirsty revenge. If you read book one you will know even the best plans fail.

The lies and deceit continue to run through this duet and family loyalties and sides are a big part of the plot as Castello goes up against his brother.

It seems like forever since I’ve been with Castello! It doesn’t matter how long it’s been, once he’s back, it’s as if he never left!

After the fiasco at the end of book One, I didn’t know what to expect. I mean with a mother like Castello’s mother, who needs enemies! That woman is cray-cray for real! Read Blood & Vows, vol 1, people!

Blood & Vows vol 2 definitely lives up to its name! This story is heavy on mafia intrigue and action, thank the book gods! B&V is a true mafia story with a taste of d

Blood and Vows is the end of the Twisted Duet and I fell out of bed with the aww of it all. At the end of the first book, I knew there was quite of bit that needed to be answered and I wanted the answers right away. But Bella kept me hanging throughout the story, so don't think you will get them right away.

If you think Castello is all soft-hearted you could not be more wrong. He is even darker I think in this book, probably because he has more to protect. His queen is in ne
We loved the conclusion to this well crafted tale.

The story got hotter and more intriguing and one that tore a family apart and pitted brother against brother.The story was also about revenge and love and forgiveness and righting the wrongs of ones past but, most of all it was about protecting all that you love and held dear and showing all just how dangerous and powerful Castello was to his enemies.

Bella J left us dumbfounded, amazed, and anxious at the end of Blood & Lies. The conclusion of the story of Castello and Tatum could not have been more intense, depraved with a plot twist like none other.

Castello has taken over his mafia family that has suffered a split with some preferring to join his rival brother Nico. The plan to kidnap torture and make Tatum a pawn in his game was obliterated once Castello realized she was the little mouse he would refuse to ever let leave his trap. This st

Tatum and Castello's stormy love story continues in Bella J's new novel, Blood and Vows and their story becomes even more turbulent and sexy in Bella J's final strokes of her series A Twisted Duet.

You have to read the first book in the series, Blood and Lies, before reading Blood and Vows.
Tatum and Castello are living with Castello's uncle after Castello's killing of his treacherous mother and the open war with his brother, who is trying to take control of the Mafia Family.

~~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review~~~~~~~~~~~

Castello went to war with his brother and killed his mother for his "little mouse". Tatum was kidnapped, beat and abused by Castello but he also owned her body and soul and knew exactly what she needed. Castello brought her to life and she never wants anyone but him but will he keep her forever? Oh wow what can I say about this book? It was truly one of the best dark romances I have ever read. Bella J. is simply the best author
Oh my goodness!!! I had my finger on the purchase button the moment this book was available and just could not stop reading until I was done. This story had it all from hate to love, kidnapping, evil family members, etc. you name it and it was there.

I said in in my review with Blood and Lies and I will say it again..... Bella J. ...... YOU ROCK!!!

Book 2 completed the story of Tatum and Costello. All I can say is WOW! You never saw that happening. In the first book you saw how Tatum and Costello loved to hate they brought out their dark side. This one they help each other tame the beasts. This book is dark and might offend some but I loved it and will be reading more by this author. I still can't believe the twist. I never saw it coming! ...more

“I wanted the best of both worlds, and there was only one way to do that… Make her my queen by day, and my slave by night.”

The concluding part to this story begins where we ended previously, dealing with the fallout from the bloody ending of part one. Reeling with after shocks the revelations have huge ramifications for Castello and the future of his family. Causing a divide the split in his family means war. A battle for power, control and power inevitable. With his need to keep his little mous

BLEW ME AWAY.!!!!!!! So this book starts exactly from where we were left with Castello and Tatum in Blood and Lies. Now that Castello has proven his passion for Tatum by declaring war on his own family, Castello and Tatum find themselves fall deeper, harder and fiercely for each other. Ohhhhhhh my.... my heart... Even though some of things they like to do are questionable and definitely not sane yet the passion and intensity of their feelings is undeniable. Castello has declared Tatum as his que ...more

Where is the option for like a million stars????
Holy Hell! What a way to complete this duet! Bella left the Blood & Lies with one heck of a cliff hanger and boy did she pick it up!
This book has exceeded all expectations! You expect something to happen, you prepare yourself for it to happen BUT then it doesn't!

Castello and Tatum is one heck of power couple.

5+ little mouse stars!! A spine tingling, goosebumps inducing conclusion!! I loved every second of this book, and Castello was even more dominant, possessive and protective than ever before! I swooned at the way he loved Tatum so deeply! It was as if he wanted to crawl into her and just live there forever! This book was jaw dropping and had me on the edge of my seat!

Wow! As I was hoping, Blood & Vows was just the right conclusion for this terrific duet.
It was a thrilling story and certainly a terrific addition to this gritty, extremely dark, heart-pounding read. It was an addictive story, and brilliantly told, it had me gasping and flipping those pages as quick as I could read, wanting to know what was coming next.
This addition to the story was full of emotions, lies and surprising treachery that knocked me for six, and not really knowing the truth drove me

Sometimes the biggest enemy it's at your own house! I couldn't even imagine where Bella J would of takes us with this last book.... And to the end of the hell to Tatum it has.
But in the end a king and a Queen have born more strong, powerful.

Book 2 of this duet was just as dark and twisted as the first book of the series. Both novels were based upon "a perceived perception" of what the actual truth was vs. reality. The story was crafted in a way that everything Castello thought happened or was happening was a complete lie when it came to his family. He was constantly being out-played by his family in book 1 and continued that pattern in book 2. I found his character to be extremely dark, ruthless and malicious, who loved inflicting ...more

Bella J has a permanent place in my heart because not only is she an amazing writer but also an amazing friend. I haven't met her in person yet but just by texting her and following her facebook account she's always there.
Blood & Vows is her latest release and it's the second book from the A Twisted Duet... And what a duet...

I received a copy of this book to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Blood and Vows is the second book in A Twisted Duet from Bella J. You have to have read Blood and Lies or you are going to be very lost in Blood and Vows.

Castello still owns Tatum. The matter of her freedom has not yet been addressed, and she won't demand it in fear that he might it to her. She is no longer and unwilling prisoner, but rather an eager participant. His touch makes her come alive with wicked delight and she has g

From the flow of blood and whisper of vows emerges a queen strong enough to withstand the Fattore brothers and their world.

The war between families shifted to war between blood. Castello has chosen his little mouse over the lies and deceit of the family. His brother Vico is out for retribution and he now wants the position of ‘Boss’. In order to achieve this, both Castello and Tatum must die.

This is the second book of the series and it’s better than the first! Intense, drama very shocking crazy messed up family that leaves you with your mouth hung up asking what did I just read. It stars off right where the last book ended and what a rollercoaster ride it is. Will Tatum ever be safe and able to leave? Will Castello open up his hart will the darkness be overflowing with him forever? The close to the ending of this book totally shocked me and gutted me. Definitely one of my favorite m ...more

“I realized killing you won’t save me…but loving you will.” -Castello (*SWOON*)

Wowza! That ending was soooo not what I had imagined! So much blood spilled and so many lives taken. I can’t even be sad about it either. Revenge is a sweet evil.

Blood & Vows is the 2nd and final book of this duet. Blood & Lies must be read first.

This is book #2 of the The Twisted Duet, it wraps up the story of Castello and Tatum. Or does it? ;) Blood & Vows is deep, dark, gut wrenching, soul smashing--and HOT AF. If you want to come over to the dark side, where we have cookies AND Castello, get the duet now. You will not regret it!
So, this continues where the first one left - with the death of Tatum's father and Castello's mother and a new war on the horizon.

Castello brings Tatum to his uncle's estate where he basically keeps her locked in their bedroom. And even though it gives them a chance to hump like bunnies and explore their kinks, it also shows how insecure he is about her loyalty and is not sure that she'd stay if she had a chance of freedom.
And that is the main focus of the book - free will, control, obsession,

As much as I get tired of it, I'll start out by saying that Blood & Vows are the 2nd book in A Twisted Duet, so YOU MUST READ Blood & Lies (Book 1) FIRST, otherwise you will be confused. There's no way around it, as there are layers upon layers of twists. Now, this story starts right back off where Book 1 left off, and I'm not going to tell you any details, because of that whole spoiler douchery thing. Nope, instead I'll just go on about my extreme emotions, which there are plenty of. See, the d ...more
