Circumstance put Cristina on my path.

Cristina and I share a common past. A single night that changed the course of our lives.

She asked me if I was a monster the night I met her.
I am.

She’s about to learn I’m her monster.

When you run, I will come after you. I will always come after you. You belong to me now, Cristina. For better or for worse.”


I need the next book immediately!!!! My ovaries shall not survive it! I'm a sucker for a good anti-hero, and no one writes them quite like Natasha Knight. As a matter of fact, Damian Di Santo may be my favorite antihero I've read from her to date! This man was SHIVER inducing.

The pacing of this story was PERFECTION. It gives just enough chemistr

Unholy Union Live Now

This is the first book in a duet and I enjoyed it immensely.
I was definitely left wanting more and can’t wait to read the conclusion of this gripping story which I believe is out in September so not long to wait.
This is mafia romance and focuses on Cristina Valentina and Damian Di Santo.
Christina’s brother and mother were killed in an accident when she was a child, her father a year later supposedly taking his own life.
She has since been raised by her uncle that is until the onset of her eightee

Unholy Union is dark, terrifying and delicious! Natasha Knight wrote a truly creepy, chilling, spine-tingling story that swept me away to a realm of secrets, murder, and captivity.

Cristina was just a young girl who had suffered unbearable losses and was trying to find her way. At eighteen, she knows a few things: she's alone in the world aside from her uncle and her cousins; she's enjoying her first year of college; and she'll be receiving a box with eight dead roses for her birthday.

Can't fault me for trying! Because I did try. Hard. But there's a limit up-to which I can tolerate characters with this wooden personality.

Like in every other crime romance where heroine is taken from her family as a debt on her eighteenth birthday and given to a monster hero who, by the way is a big big softy once you get past the exterior (because whatever, right?) and then they spend time together because criminal world? Ah! Hero's self employed so breaking bones can always wait. A

This is a very intense (slow burn) story about a predator and his prey.

Cristina lost everything when she had 8 years old. Unfortunately for her, her daddy's sins put a target on her back. Damien also lost family, but he's the devil who doesn't wants to lose anything, so when Cristina turns 18, he's back to collect what he thinks it's his.

The pace, the angst, the suspense and all the evolution of the story and their intense connection, put me in th

That is the book I was waiting for while on vacation! Once again, Natasha Knight transported me into her magia workd I like so much. 

In Unholy Union, I met Damian, ruthless man set on a revenge mission after the tragedy that bound his and Cristina's families together. I loved the edge there is to him. His personality is as intruguing as compelling. Getting to know him, finding out the k

'Unholy Union' is the first book of the 'Unholy Union Duet' by the best selling author Natasha Knight. Told in dual perspectives , this book was another memorable read by the queen of dark Romance for me!!!

I have read all the book of this author and she fails to stun me surprised by her amazing way of writing these delicious dark Romances. Damian and Christina had such a tale and I was captivated right from the start.

Once again Natasha has interrupted my household. I could not put Unholy Union down so piles of unfolded washing lay scattered across the dining table and we had takeout for tea AGAIN!

Natasha has a very clever talent of hooking in her reader from the very beginning.
Her anti-hero's walk a dangerously close line of unforgiving darkness, and Damien Di Santo is no exception.
His family is owed a debt, a life for a life. Cristina Valentina is the one that must pay.

What’s this book about? (I'm trying to give as little spoilers as possible)
It's over for Christina. Damian is a monster. And he's the type that doesn't hide in the dark. Her time is up and he is coming to claim what's his.

This must be my third Knight read. And I can say that I liked it the MOST. Very strong start. Relatable characters. A bad guy that you love to hat

I was unbelievably happy when i found out Natasha Knight was about to release a new dark duet; i didn't even read the blurb i just added them on my TBR.
And well i was right: She is a evil little genius and i love her mind!!!

Unholy Union is the suspenseful dark story of Damian and Cristina.
The events of a tragic night linked their lives indissolubly.
That night left them both with deep scars (physically and emontionally).

HOLY GOD! I mean … H.O.L.Y. God. That was edgy and deliciously sexy and I’m going to need the next book yesterday! This is hands down one of my top dark romance reads this year. I am still a little twitchy (in a glorious way) thinking back to the storyline.

#FunFact: This is my first read by Natasha Knight and I give you permission to punish me for the error of my ways! What is wrong with me?! Also, I just spent a small fortune making sure I devour all her words!! Lol

Gah! There is something about Natasha Knight's mafia stories that I am OBSESSED with. But her Arranged Marriage stories are by far my favorite. She has a finger on the pulse of what people love. Cristina and Damian were so delicious. Their story was sexy, edgy and full of the dark and decadently delicious chemistry Knight's stories always bring us!! I was consumed from the very first page!!

I absolutely loved this story. Forced to become the property of Damian Di Santo to satisfy a debt, Cristina

After Unholy,The Beginning,i knew this was going to be a story i needed.
Seriously. Like my next breath.
Because it’s so delicious,so dark......just my kind of story. Natasha had mercy on me,and saved me by very generously gifting me the paperback ARC of Unholy Union.
A gift i am most grateful for.
Because it showed me it is exactly what i was hoping for,and more,so much more!

The time has come. Christina’s 18th birthday is here and Damian has come to collect what is his.

This book had me hooked from The Beginning! A dark and twisted tale between a monster and the girl he took to settle a debt.

Cristina was just a little girl the first time she met her monster. Eight years later, the monster will become her reality. She thought the worst was behind her when she lost her family, now she is being forced to pay the price for the sins of her father.

This was book 1 in the "Unholy Union" duet. We first met Damian Di Santo and Cristina Valentine in the prequel to this series she was 10 years old he has waited 8 years to take her. I liked this book Cristina has lost her whole family her mother and brother died in a car accident that also injured members of the Di Santo family and the father wants revenge he was a mean nasty old man. This book read like a full length prequel. I liked that although Cristina is a virgin and naive she didn't ...more

Unholy Union is Natasha Knights' latest story and I have to say it is one of my favorites. Although it brought a few surprises forward. Unholy Union is a dark read with monsters hiding in every corner but the question is do you know who the real monster is?

Cristina is innocent in all of this. And you really feel for her. There is nothing about Cristina you won't like. She is sweet and doesn't understand why her life is being turned upside down on the whim of a man like Damian.

Sorry, but after reading the last book in this duet, I have to bring my rating down just a bit. That will also cause it to go to 3 stars instead of 4.

I'm a little disappointed. I expected things to move faster and more time to pass.
I love Damian & I like Cristina.
There is a lot of Mystery, Crime & Intrigue.

It is interesting but the steam is virtually non-existent. Very little in that area happens.
Slow paced & repetitive in a few areas. This read more like a very long 'Introduction' to the c

What an incredible story of betrayal that will make your head spin with the journey this book takes you on! Damian and Cristina met when she was younger and she knew then that he wasn’t to be trusted. Many years later, he comes for her and her life is forever changed.

Damian may not be all that he is perceived to be, and I really liked his character. He is dark, dirty and delicious. Cristina is a young woman thrust into a life she’s not sure how to handle. I really love her character because whil
