Romero came into my life when I was thirteen and taught me how to fight. To stand up for myself. He helped me survive. But his promise to protect me and my mother washed down the drain the night she died. I was sixteen. He let me leave, and then he didn’t call. Didn’t even try to make sure I hadn’t died in some seedy hotel. That was just how I wanted it. Until two years la ...more

Auctioned Virginity is the first book I have read from the author, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. I won't lie. I was skeptical at; first. I read the blurb, and it sounded like something I would enjoy. I kept an open mind and dove in.

Here is what I found, it’s a retelling of a modern-day Romero and Juliette with many twists and turns. With a HEA. The heroine Julietta is a strong, fierce young woman. Very mature for the age from what she had to endear in her life, Many t
3,5⭐️. I just read that i have to wait to the year 2022, to read the second book. im going to cry. I can’t wait😭😭😭😭.

“Go ahead, Daddy,” I whispered with saccharine sweetness. “Bend me over and spank me.”

This is my first read by Raven and I am beyond impressed. This story was one of the most intense mafia/taboo romances I have read. I loved how Julietta is not a weak and shallow heroine - this girl is a mature and smart warrior to the bone. Romero is the mafia don that everyone fears and respects but is humble, compassionate, and protective. I enjoyed the taboo aspect with the 20 year age gap, yet it didn’t feel like it between the two, and the chemistry between these two is off the charts hot. ...more

If you love taboo mafia romance, you’ll adore this one. It has a fierce female lead, a delicious older hero, and solid writing.

This was my first book by Raven Woodward and I was very surprised. I chose to read this ARC because the blurb really hooked me and sounded like something I’d really enjoy. And I was correct. I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this to be honest. I thought it was a good story that really got me hooked and ready to find out all the details about Romero and Julietta. They are such a great couple and made me want more and more the more I read. This book was easy to get caught up in and lose tr ...more

Possible trigger: man slaughter, violence, drug abuse

This book wasn't what I was expecting when I read the blurb. I thought it was a taboo-ish downright dirty steamy book between stepdad and daughter. But no. At least it was starting that way, but by some twist of plot, it turned 180 into some action-packed romance with play-by-play martial art scenes. Crush it!!

The story started with how to step dad-daughter reacquaintance after two years of falling out. Meeting again and living under the same

Age-Gap, taboo/forbidden Romance....yes please sign me up.

This was my first read from Raven Woodward and I will be continuing this series.

Romero - the sexy step-father that will do anything to protect his step-daughter

Julietta - the sultry young step-daughter that needs to return home but no longer has a mother and can only turn to her step-father

I love these types of stories, because they are realistic. We cannot control who we become attracted to or with whom we fall in love. In our minds, we

**ARC provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review - thank you to Raven Woodward for the copy**

Auctioned Virginity was definitely unexpected!

This is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet inspired dark romance. We have Julietta who is 18 and without any family or job since her mother passed away from a drug overdose, struggling to survive on the streets. We have Romero who is an extremely wealthy businessman (or is he something far more dangerous?), and he is also Julietta's estranged st

Action packed and sexy as hell!

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but I ended up having a lot this fun reading it and read it in one sitting. This was a sexy and action packed book with so many twists and turns I didn't see coming. If you love a mafia romances with a good age gap and alpha males give it a go!

Fantastic, thrilling and super sexy story!

DAMN!! This story started off slow and sexy and then BAM it explodes into this fast paced, action packed, super thrilling story! I was literally on the edge of my seat with anticipation, biting my nails like crazy, with my heart beating out of my chest, because I had no idea what the hell was going to happen next. This story was phenomenal from start to finish and FREAKING INTENSE!!!

Meet Juiletta, a new adult, at just eighteen, trying to find her way in the world after an unforgiving childhood worrying over her now deceased mother. She’s trying her best to make ends meet & go to college. Sucking up the courage, she reaches out to the only person she could count on, her step father.
This taboo, mafia type, sexcapade leads you on an adventure with plenty of sexy scenes to get you to forget just how taboo that relationship with her step father is.

This new to me author blew me away!

I loved the cover first! Read the blurb, and said yes, yes, I'll give Ms. Woodward a try! I am So Glad I did!

Mafia romance has been my go to trope! Dark, yes, I love it!

This story drew me in right from the very beginning! Each page turn brought more excitement, more action, more phenomenal character building!

I am definitely going to be checking out Ms. Woodward's catalog!

this book had me hooked from the start

the fact the girl loved violence as much as she loved her man was a added bonus

I was hooked by the end of the first chapter and honestly didn’t want it to ever end. It’s intense, fast paced and well... hot!

Julietta is a strong, kick arse woman who has had to deal with so much in her 18 years it would have broken a lot of people but instead made her stronger.

Romero is so protective, respectful, and understanding that you kinda just forget that’s he’s a feared Mafia don. I love everything about his relationship with Julietta.

The chemistry is HOT! I know the age gap is mea

I got an ARC for my honest opinion of this book, I'm giving it a 4.5 b/c a lot of the time I had to stop to look up a word to translate b/c I do not know Spanish. It would of been nice if it would of already been translated next to it. Other than that this book was so good. The chemistry between Julietta and Romero is hot. If you like age gap and Mafia stories then this is a must read! ...more

Julietta was a young girl when she realized that her mother wasn't a very good one. Julietta's grandmother was she support system until the day that she dies and Romero steps in. Romero tried to teach Julietta the skills that she would need to survive out to the terrible cruel world that Romero lived in. Julietta thought that Romero didn't want her to live with him after her mother die of a drug over dose.

This would make a great movie.

“You’re everything I always desired, but thought I’d never have”
Not only is this super hot in places but it's also a well-paced, exciting story. Age makes no difference with this kind of passion and love!!
Romero is so hot in the way he acts, his power of command.. and he's a powerful mafia don. Julietta has been trained by her stepfather to defend herself though once all grown up she needs a lot more than that from Romero. Then the s#%# really hits the fan as events

This is far from my usual genre, as I avoid both mafia romances and “daddy” romances like the plague. Imagine my surprise when I enjoyed it. I’ve never read this author and received this book for free from a group I’m a part of. There was no review requirement, but I decided to provide one anyway.

I had not read the blurb or anything about the book, so I had no idea what the book was about. Going into it blind, I imagined it would be about virgin auctions, imagine my surprise when that really wa

Yikes. If you're a fan of this genre, you're probably going to love this book, because it has loads of heat and hurt and hotness. If you're just dipping your toes into the genre, brace yourself for a head-spinning ride. Lingerie, a fun toy, a roomful of really hot older guys... And then murder, mayhem, chase scenes, sex and more murder and mayhem. And sex. The MC is a badass young (18) woman who survived an addict mother, two years of living on the streets and is feeling her sexual power, partic ...more

No shortage of sex scenes, or spankings. A story I did not want to put down and the twist was awesome. Believable characters you cannot help but love, especially the strong female that will do whatever she needs to get what she wants. Definitely want to read more, and hope there is HEA for all the guys!

Totally out of my comfort zone, but thoroughly enjoyed this book. Didn't go the way I expected it to at all. I really enjoyed the strength and toughness of the lead MC and how she comes into her own, although she does seem much older than her 18 years, she is totally loveable and brilliant!
I could not put this book down.

This story didn't quite give me what I expected. I liked the sexual tension between Julietta and her stepfather. Through Julietta's flashbacks, you can read about her from the day Romero came into her life and became important to her. But in the life she leads as an 18-year-old, I think she comes across as a slightly spoiled girl who thinks she's a grown up. And that she wouldn't know what Romero is doing seems incredible. And after she runs away from him, tries to hide, also from the enemy behi ...more
