Disgraced is Damon and Lina’s story. We first met this couple in Dishonorable and I highly recommend that book one be read first for maximum reading enjoyment of Disgraced.
Damon Amado is just six months from taking his final vows to be ordained as a priest. However, he finds himself questioning and unsure. His mentor in the seminary sends him to NYC to do some soul searching at a parish before having to make the choice that determines the rest of his future.
For her entire life, Lina Garcia has always had people making decisions for her . . . until she decided to turn evidence in that puts her controlling grandfather in jail. Realizing she wants the freedom she never had, Lina leaves school in Chicago and heads to NYC where she looks up one of her grandfather’s connections . . . who just happens to be head of NYC’s Russian mafia. Lina finds herself playing piano in his exclusive club and in his debt . . . a debt that is transferred to his son when Sergei finds himself in prison . . . and, Alexi doesn’t play nice.
Much to Damon’s surprise, he runs into Lina at an exclusive and nefarious club and immediately realizes that she is in trouble. While trying to sort through what is going on with Lina, Damon finds himself experiencing thoughts and feelings extremely unbecoming to someone about to be ordained into the priesthood. As their attraction to one another continues to grow, so does their confusion as to what type of relationship they can possibly have with one another as well as the danger presented by Lina’s connections to the Russian mob.
Will Damon be able to keep Lina safe and fight his attraction to her so that he can commit his life to the church? Will Lina be able to escape her ties to the mob and claim her life as her own owing no one but herself anything while also keeping her heart intact from Damon?
Disgraced is raw, gritty, dark and taboo. It is everything that one can want in a dark romance with a well written plot that keeps you guessing to the very end if a happily ever after even has a chance at existing for the couple.
Natasha Knight did an incredible job describing the angst that tears Damon apart while trying to decide what is right for him . . . his love for the church, or his love for Lina. Lina has also done a lot of growing up since we were introduced to her in Dishonorable. She is no longer the shy young girl, but a fierce and sassy young woman determined to find her own way in life while keeping her loved ones safe.
If you enjoy your romance on the dark side, this series, especially Disgraced is the perfect read for you! 5 stars.
About the Book:
Disgrace: the condition of one fallen from grace.
She is my forbidden fruit. The one temptation I cannot resist.
The first night…
I rescued her from an attack in the seedy underground of New York City.
The second night…
She told me the first of many lies.
She thinks she can keep me out of her world, but she’s in over her head. Watching her, being near her, it gives breath to something dark inside me. Something primal and forbidden. Forbidden to me.
Because in six months, I’ll be an ordained priest.
And she complicates things.
She thinks she is my disgrace. Truth is, my fall had begun the moment I’d laid eyes on her.
