My God, where did the creativity of these women go ?! When it's a thing, it's another! This one?! Same as always (again). "I love her, but my soul is dark so I can kiss her but I'm going to fuck other women so she can hate me and make her soul as dark as mine!"🤮🤮🤮 Oh please give me a break!! This misogynistic bullshit is ridiculous! "I always protected and loved her from afar i.e, if any men approached her I would threaten them while I fucked around"🙄🤦♀🤮So of course she remains a virgin and ...more

I enjoyed this book so much!


I really like this lassie. Even though she feels vulnerable and lost in this world she is still feisty and does not go down without a fight.

I felt so bad for her throughout this book. Hers has not been an easy life. Her mother walked out on her when she was very young and her father wasnt a good guy at

Sweet baby jesus, this story is Absolutely amazing.

It's only my second book of ravens that I've read and shes vastly becoming one of my favourite authors, it's like she knows exactly what I love to read.

I was up till 2am reading this because I couldnt put it down, it took me on a rollercoaster of emotions, sometimes i couldn't breath, dark romance is one of my most favourite genres and she did not dissapoint at all, she has the mind of a genius

i cant wait to see what else is coming from this

I loved Owned by Him by Raven Amor and gave it 4.5 stars.

"The once grey walls are now covered in graffiti, as if Im following some screwed up yellow brick road thats leading me home".

This book was everything that was promised to me.

😈It was dark and twisted.
💥It was a suspense in a way that a few times my heart was pounding so hard that I was afraid it would break out of my chest.
💔There was so much pain and tragedy that broke my heart over and over again.
💕There was love and beauty.
There was blood,

I love dark reads but this was a little too dark for me and the killing baby expect is not one that I enjoy so I won't read another book from this author and I hated this book very much the characters had great sex though at least that was good too much violence for me.

Every once in a while an author comes along and completely knocks you off your feet......

Raven Amor is that author!!!!!

She delivers an absolutely captivating story that grips you within the words that effortlessly flow across the pages and transports you into the deliciously dark world that's being portrayed,this is definitely a book that once you start you HAVE to finish...

A Dark Romance that held me in its thrall.

Wow. Who is Raven Amor, and where has she been hiding? This is the first book of hers that Ive read, and she just blindsided me, and took me for the ride of my life.

Its written in my favourite dual POV, and I loved the way her characters clashed between the early chapters as Lilliana and Malachi faced off against each other. Lillianas longer and in her feminine perspective while Malachis was short and brusque, masculine and alpha.

This is the story of Lilliana Parker and Malachi Kingston, aka the Dark Prince, or ruler of Londons underground.

Poor Lilliana, oh dear my heart just about broke for her from chapter one. What she goes through time after time just isnt fair. She pulls on her inner strength so often but there comes a time when even the strongest question how much more they can tolerate. I was totally blown away by her character, her ability to love and her depth of understanding for others.

Owned by Him is a raw and dark, mafia romance read. The story focuses on Lillianna who is sold to pay for her father debt to no other than her brothers best friend, Malachi Kingston. But Malachi isnt the young prince that she remembered and she isnt the starry eyes princess any more. What Lillianna and Malachi share is something dark, twisted and passionate and in the end, Lillianna doesnt know if she will survive Malachi or everyone else who is out for her blood.

A story full of suspense, strength, unconditional love, and twists.

Lilliana has lost one very important man in her life. Now she only has her father left and even though hes not father of the year material, hes still her father and she would do anything for him. Unfortunately for her, thats about to be tested. There have been three men who have meant anything to Lilliana in her life, and she is about to be reunited with one of them. Too bad she hates him and wants nothing to do with him.

I don't know how to review this story since while I loved one thing, I despised so many more things. That being said, I couldn't not read it, so that's why I did end up giving it 4 stars after a cool minute thinking about it. Now, Lillianna is the one major things I LOVED about this story. The poor girl had nothing good going in her life, and yet, she wasn't completely broken either, instead didn't go down with a fight. Her mother died with she was young, her older brother who she was close to ...more

Holy wow!! I have been on a dark and twisted kick lately, and this book did not disappoint. This is the first book I have read by this author, and it will not be my last. She will take you on a roller coaster of emotions. I am not gonna lie my heart and ached for Lilliana.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Owned by Him by Raven Amor is the story of Lilliana Parker and Malachi Kingston "Dark Prince".
Lillianna hasn't had a easy life at all. Lillianna's mother up and left them when she was little, then her brother died. Lillianna's father took to being indifferent to her and started wasting their money.
Lillianna had a crush on her brother's friend Malachi when she was younger. But know he is known as the Dark Prince and the ruler of the undergrounds...a very dangerous man. When her father gets into

I like dark story lines but must feel some connection with the characters. I couldn't finish this about half way through and just went to the review section. I tried really hard to understand Lilliana and Malachi and connect with their characters but found myself loathing their actions and their characters. The author writes well, I just couldn't get into this story and the characters. Too much self-loathing from Lilliana and too much evil and darkness with Malachi's character. I ...more

Raven Amor is a new to me author and I have to say that I'm really happy to have found her! Owned by Him is a dark mafia romance. Take the dark label seriously as this book has quite a few triggers. Raven Amor created a dark and dangerous world full of suspense, mystery and betrayal. Lillian is such a strong heroine you can really root for. She is definitely taken advantage of by those meant to protect her, and my heart broke for her throughout the book. Malachi is dark, mysterious and hot af. ...more

Shelves: dark, mafia, steamy, virgin
A very typical mafia-themed romance of two characters who always loved each other finding love again. There was intrigue, twists, and some adventure. I liked the relationship between the two characters; love scenes were passionate, very steamy expressions of their unsaid feelings.

In general I found the story, while good, not very original. There was also too little dialogue in favor of prose, a lot of telling and not showing, which made the story feel tiresome, lengthy. I thought the true love

Beautifully dark romance!

What a sensationally dark romance dripping with uber sensuality, deceit, heart-stomping scenes that will shock the senses! The story of Malachi and Lilliana was tumultuous and gripping. They loved to hate and hated to love each other. Character development for both good and evil was utter perfection! Full of emotional-provoking scenes, twisted surprises, and plenty of intense chemistry between the sheets. You best be a lover of dark stories that border on pitch black. I

This book was twisted, totally messed up and I loved every single word of it!!! Some content may be triggering to some readers, so just keep that in mind. If you're like me and love everything dark, twisted and messed up, this book is perfect for you.

Lilliana has had a strange relationship with Malachi since she was a kid. She swore to him when she was eight that she would marry him, at sixteen she swore she loved him. At twenty-three she swears she hates

I really wanted to like this book. I struggle with everything done to Li!y. Her father's betrayal, the way she paid the price, I could get that. What I can't get past is how vicious Malachi, Declan and Marcus treated her. Marcus and Declan physically beat her and Malachi allowed it. Going as far as breaking ribs and laughing. That along with everything else Malachi did to her is enough to say no thank you! She just forgives all of it? Yeah, domestic violence old Never okay and is a big no for

Lilliana makes it known she hates him for forcing her to live a life owned but little does she know what lies ahead.

I chose this book as it was recommended on The Fox Den (Logan Fox's) and it didn't disappoint. It grabbed me within the fist few lines and kept me captivated to the end, I read it in one sitting.
This is a well developed story with two believable and broken characters. There are plenty of twists in the plot that keep you guessing and there is heartache and angst between our MCs.
Great read if you enjoy a dark sexy romance.

I LOVED everything about this book. Malachi is the dark prince we've all dreamt of at some point. He's ruthless, determined and pure alpha delight. And Lilliana isn't the sweet innocent girl I thought she was.

The two of them are perfect together and their fights are like fuel to the fire that consumes them in an inevitable passion.

Lillianna's father didn't pay attention to her he was too busy gambling. Her older brother Hayden was her hero until she meets his best friend Malachi aged 8 shes determined hes her Prince.
Plenty of twist and turns throw in some serious betrayal this book is an interesting story.

Raven is new to me and now i wanna read every book she writes. Love this book.

I was gripped from the start and could not stop reading. Her writting flowed beautifully and was powerful. Amazing character's. Full of action, angst, steamy scenes and twists.

Loved the intensity between Malachi and lilliana. Both strong and love fiercely. Cant wait for more, excited for Marcus's story.

A must read, you wont be disappointed.
