MY STAR RATING
All I’ve ever wanted was to marry for love.
But girls like me don’t have that luxury.
We are used as pawns in a game we can’t control.
The game? It’s called Mafia.
I was foolish enough to try to change the rules… and I lost.
She was promised to me years ago.
And he dared to take her from me.
Dared to touch what was mine.
I put an end to that.
I hope he’s enjoying the view from his dirt room.
My beloved’s killer placed a ruby ring on my finger and called me his queen.
But that red gem symbolizes something different for me.
It represents the blood shed by those I love most.
Hell was empty the day we wed.
Because the devil was standing before me and said “I do.”
I saw her as a possession.
A shiny toy I didn’t want other boys to play with.
But she’s so much more.
Beautiful and brave and strong and broken all at once.
She tastes like everything I’ve ever wanted.
Hidden and patient.
I wait for the perfect time to seek my revenge.
But slowly, I feel him possessing me.
His heart is full of darkness… and I still want every inch of him.
Hard as I try, I can’t escape loving this beautiful monster.
I’m waiting patiently because I already know that she’s mine.
Mine in a way that no one will ever understand.
Even if she hasn’t yet realized it.
For love, I’d do anything.
For her, I’d do everything.
MY REVIEW of: WAITING FOR MY QUEEN by Georgia Cates
This one started out quite dark and the main male character seemed pretty much irredeemable but the further you got into the story the gentler he became.
Now, you know I love my alpha-holes but I’ll be honest after the stunt Luca pulled I wasn’t sure how this could ever work out.
Luca is a mafia boss in the making. He’s been promised Emilia since they were babies and when he finds out that she’s in love with someone else and plans on marrying this other dude, shit hits the fan.
As I said, he started out dark and dangerous but things changed. Granted that they only really changed when it came to Emilia, but I think I would have been more into him if he had stayed the arse he was at the beginning.
Okay, not quite that bad but still stayed a bit darker.
That’s the only complaint I have with this story.
The extreme darkness you see from him in the beginning (which I prefered, lol) didn’t match up with how easily he became a gentler man.
I don’t think that someone who would do the things he did would be so quick to let his guard down and be as open and trusting as he was.
Emilia hates Luca. And you can’t blame her. He’s the last person in the world she wants to be with but has no choice but to go with him when everything settles and he comes for her.
I loved this girl. She is so feckin’ brave.
She’s scared, alone and intimidated and what does she do?
She sass’s him and pokes the fuckin’ bear.
She mouths off and doesn’t back down.
I loved that about her.
I also love that she keeps it real.
There are certain expectations people have of a mafia wife( especially in the 70s) but she’s not going to sit back and become a piece of the furniture.
Nope, she comes in, tells it like it is, and demands respect.
Only problem? Yeah, she starts to catch some feels for him.
She can’t do that.
Her family are depending on her.
Insert heartache here, lol.
Right. You know how in these kinds of books that alpha dude is always fucking marvellous in bed and knows how to have his woman begging for more?
Well, this one is slightly different. He has never really tried to be ‘all that; in the sac before. So he’s kinda learning as he goes. Which was…different.
Normally he’s an in and out kind of man, getting what he wants and moving on.
Personally, I like a man to know what he’s doing. Like, learn on someone else, dude, then come see me. Ye ken?
Anyway, the sex was still pretty hot.
“I hate you.” He smiles and chuckles. “You wish you hated me.” His mouth crashes against mine, and his tongue pushes its way into my mouth. I turn my face away, fighting and pushing at his shoulders. My dress bunched at my waist, I press my thighs together when he grasps my panties and drags them down my legs. “You also wish you didn’t want me to fuck you against this wall right now.” My flat palms come down hard against his chest. “I don’t.” “Liar. Let’s see if I’m right.” He shoves his hand between my legs, one of his fingers gliding through my slick centre. “That’s exactly what I thought I’d find waiting for me.” His heart is full of darkness, and I hate myself for still wanting every inch of him. Luca unfastens his pants and dips his hand inside his boxers, pulling out his cock. He lifts my feet off the floor, and my legs instantly wrap around his torso as though they have a mind of their own. As though they don’t need to hear the command from my brain. Wrapping my arms around his shoulders tightly, I suck air in through my clenched teeth when he slides inside me. “Fuuuck,” he groans against my ear. He grips the underside of my thighs, his fingertips digging into my flesh as he anchors me against the wall and roughly slams into me over and over. My elbows resting on his shoulders, I grip the top of his hair as he bounces me up and down his dick. I’m certain my body will be covered in fresh purple bruises tomorrow.
Final thoughts on WAITING FOR MY QUEEN by Georgia Cates.
I enjoyed this book but it would have been even better if Luca had been as dark and dangerous as he was at the beginning, all the way through.
It is dark and fairly sexy just not quite as dark as I usually like my books, but that’s because I have a wee black heart, lol.
It’s definitely worth a read as it kept my interest all the way through.
