Bloody Heart: A Second Chance Mafia Romance (Brutal Birthright, Book 4) Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
Number-One Best Seller
She Cut My Heart Open....
I only meant to steal a car. I didn't know I was stealing a girl, too. Until the most gorgeous face I'd ever seen popped up in the rear-view mirror.
I fell hard, fast, and forever....
But she tore out my heart - left me alone and bleeding.
How can I forget her, when I have to see that damned perfect face on billboards and magazines?
Nine long years. I thought I moved on.
Then I saw her in the flesh....
And my heart started bleeding all over again....
Bloody Heart is the angst-ridden fourth installment in the Brutal Birthright series. It's a stand-alone second chance mafia romance, with a HEA and no cliffhanger. Contains steamy scenes.
The Lark Notes:
At long last, Dante's story! I know you guys were the most excited for this one. It's my longest book yet - epic in story, timescale, heartbreak, and angst. And epically spicy too - be warned! There's a scene with a belt that had me dragging Mr. Lark into my writing room. As an added bonus, you'll meet Raylan, who will return as the hero of Broken Vow. --Sophie

Dante Gallo... eldest son of the Gallo Italian Mafia family. He’s always been there, in the background, smouldering and intimidating with his intense glares and deep, growling voice. Surely there’s no way that someone so dark, brooding and roguish could have a soft and loving side! Right? Most definitely wrong.
We know through the previous books in the series that Dante has had his heart broken in the past which has inevitably created this unapproachable and standoffish man. Now, in this fabulous second chance romance story, we find out what happened to him, and why he has chosen to lock his heart away.
It tells us how a young Dante falls in love with the beautiful Simone Solomon after a chance encounter throws them together in the most bizarre way. Simone, a stunningly beautiful young girl is alone and crying. She realises that her life will never be her own. Her controlling father will always pull the strings. No matter whether it’s what she wants, if her father doesn’t agree, it’s not going to happen.
Just as she’s preparing to leave her vehicle, a dark, dangerous looking young man dives into the empty drivers and speeds away with her in the back of the car. Instead of being scared and fearful, she takes the opportunity to pour her heart out. He’s a stranger... what harm can it do. She’s not afraid that he’ll hurt her. She can see the concern for her in his face. Surprisingly, he’s warm and caring despite his admission of not being exactly the most upstanding citizen.
As Simone bids Dante goodbye she kisses him. Dazed and surprised Dante is mesmerised. From that moment, he can’t forget her. There’s something between them he’s never felt before.
Simone is equally affected and despite the warnings of her older and sickly sister, Serwa she defies her family and starts sneaking out to be with him. Their relationship is beautiful, deep and sensual. They are so well matched that they just fit together... but there’s one problem. There’s no way Simone’s father will accept Dante. He’s Mafia. He’s effectively a criminal and therefore not good enough to date his daughter, which he makes very clear.
Still determined to be together, Simone arranges to meet Dante to tell him her latest news... but he’s attacked on the way to meet her, turning up bloodied and battered. Scared and fearful she runs away. Even as Dante tells her he loves her she flees and leaves for London with her sister.
Broken, lost and utterly distraught, Dante vows never to love again. It was only ever her. There will never be anyone else.
But Simone has a huge secret she’s hiding... the real reason she’s run away.
9 years later Simone is a top model, jetting around the world. She’s on every billboard, magazines cover and tv show. Dante is tortured with every image. No one has ever come close to replacing her in his heart and never will. Likewise Simone has flitted between meaningless relationships: Dante ruined the prospect of love for her. She loves him. Always will, especially with the strong and lasting reminder that she walked away with.
By a cruel twist of fate, Simone ends up back in Chicago. She attends a rally with her father... the same rally that Dante has been asked to provide security for. Of course, it’s obvious that these two aren’t going to be able to avoid each other... but their first eye contact is frosty. Dante is in shock. All those feelings come racing back, but he’s so angry at losing her, he is frozen with emotion. But when a sniper targets the stage, metres from Simone, Dante flies into action. Even then, he’s cold towards her. Has she lost him forever because of her selfishness?
Of course she hasn’t, it’s a second chance romance... so when they do finally get back together it’s explosive. There’s anguish, pain, angst, passion, fire and redemption. Their love is eternal... but nothing is ever safe in Dante’s world and it soon becomes clear that the target of the lone sniper wasn’t Simone’s father, but his own family. Dante needs to find out who is after them before the sniper hits his target.
But the threat gets too close for comfort and Simone’s life is put in mortal danger. The only one who can save her is Dante. Can he save her? Or has he lost her all over again.
Absolutely AMAZING!! Gripping, intense, exciting, passionate... it’s everything a great story should be. I loved Dante before this book, but now... wow... he’s just everything a girl could ever want in a man.
Fabulous story... superbly written... a real page turner that stopped me from getting any sleep until I’d finished. Brilliant!! On to book 5!! Can’t wait.
His leading lady Simone was from a rich controlling family, which leads her to be in the wrong place at exactly the perfect time.
I love the fact we get to know about why Dante is so closed off to females, even when they physically throw themselves at him.
The action & suspense grew more and more as the book went on.
I most definitely agree eating one pea at a time is 💯 huge red flag psycho trait 🤣🤣
This one has got to be my favourite so far, absolutely in love with Dante and his Dominate Daddy vibes 😍
simone & dante’s story starts off on how they met and fell in love and then jumps to 9 years later it was love at first sight for these two, until it wasn’t..🥲 it’s a really fast paced read and i just want to hug dante or have him wrap those big arms around me and hold me🤪 i loveeee riona and dante’s friendship🥰
wow can we just talk about protective dante for a second or a year😮💨😮💨😮💨 THIS MAN🔥 if i was ever in danger i would want dante to come and save me!! (or nero😉 sorry can’t seem to let my baby go haha). the spice in this book🥵🌶 WOW!!
near the end the last few chapters HAD ME GRIPPED, i couldn’t put it down the suspense was killing me! the ending was sooo sweet, my heart felt so full, i just love dante & simone so much. i want someone to love me so deeply and unconditionally dante loves simone💗
Miss Sophie KNOWS her shit and that is what i love about these books. It’s hard to write a mafia romance and make it different to everything that is already out there. To create new characters that are so distinct and different from every other series out there and Lark has done exactly that.
Another reason i love this series somuch is because of the technical terminology. The fact that Nero was an actual car addict and knew everything about cars and how Dante is a soldier through and through and not just a hot headed “gangster” mafioso and how each of their stories is not the usual script of “bad boy meets innocent girl, they have lots of sex and fall in love and have babies” that 99% of the mafia books i’ve ever read follow. each story is different and new and exciting and i love it! Off to read the rest of em now!
Dante is everything. The fierceness with which he loves Simone so deeply is beautiful. He speaks about her like the goddess she is and then his dominating bedroom style is 🤌🏻✨️ The spice in this is spiiiiiiicy 🔥
Simone is strong because she's had to be with everything she had to deal with and I loved her so much and happy to have her in the Brutal Birthright Baddie Girl Gang. This book was a rollercoaster of emotions and I had my heart in my throat the whole time. My only criticisms are that there was a certain scene in a motel that I found lowkey cringe with the wording used and mention of Simone's parents seems to stop completely towards the end too which I found odd. No mention of their reaction to her being kidnapped then rescued or how they feel about her reuniting with Dante?
But overall, I loved the storyline, the drama, the build up and Dante has joined Callum at the top of my Brutal Birthright Boyfriends list 🙌🏻 I've come to realise that if Sophie Lark writes it, I'm probably going to love it.
