My life only has one purpose, and it’s to
protect them—my family.
Whether I fight, maim, or kill the enemy, it
makes no difference to me. If have to take a bullet for my family, I would
embrace death with a goddamn smile on my face.
When their safety is compromised, I put my
life on the line and made a deal with the devil. I never questioned it, not
even once…
…Until her.
All it takes is one glance. With her pretty
eyes now imprinted on my soul, the foundation my life has been built on is
shifting. My loyalty has become hazy, and my life has a new meaning. There’s a
pull between us that’s undeniable, and a carnal desire that threatens to ruin
us both. It has turned me into a man obsessed.
My perfect, well-planned life is now in chaos,
and a choice needs to be made.
My family…or my obsession?

Ayla

The darkness never truly left me. It’s always there, waiting for the right moment to strike.

It’s been months since I ran away from the nightmare that was slowly killing me. I ran for my life, straight into the arms of a man who I thought would be worse than the nightmare I’d left behind.

Little did I know he’d become my savior.

But my happy ending was ripped away from me in a blink of an eye. I had everything…and I lost everything.

Alessio

I didn’t believe in angels. But then I saw her. I touched her. I kissed her. I made love to her.

In return, she saved my soul.

I was no longer unlovable, because my Angel found it in her heart to love me.

I had her…and then I lost her.

But I will not stop until I find her.

Even if it means starting a war and spilling the blood of everyone who gets in my way.

I will find my Angel.

Alessio…

Cold. Ruthless. Killer.

I am respected and feared by all.

I wasn’t put on this earth to love or be loved. I was put here to wipe out every last member of the damn Abandonato mafia, to pay them back for my mother’s death.

When I find a strange girl hiding, beaten, under my bed, I don’t let her live out of compassion.
She’s a trinket, my plaything.

Ayla…

I thought Alessio was only one more man who wanted to use me, hurt me, and throw me away. I don’t know what it is to trust anymore. I can’t find my heart under the pain.

Alessio found it. He touched it, and brought it alive again.

But if he discovers just how dangerous I am to him…I’ll lose my life.

Review:

The culmination of Ayla and Alessio’s love story is nothing short of heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I loved how Lylah James painfully portrayed the PTSD that Ayla experienced after being abducted by Alberto. It showed the genuine struggle and emotion that PTSD victims endure in their recovery. If not for Alessio’s steadfast love and support, she would have been the shell of a person that she once was. The painful torture that she endured and how she clawed herself back out from it just portrayed how strong she really is.

Ayla’s character as a victim of abuse might be misconstrued as a damsel in distress but Lylah James didn’t depict all her personality into that specific stereotype alone. She had  a myriad of personalities that really came together into this book. I was amazed at the sheer strength and determination of her personality in the third book. In the end, she rose up to her demons and decided to overcome her tragedy.

Her acceptance of Alessio’s Bratva life was actually very admirable. It just goes to show that her unconditional love for Alessio meant that she accepts him for who he is and the life he leads. Alessio, in return, opened up his heart to Ayla once and for all. Despite all the doubts and fears facing their relationship, they overcame it to finally be together.

I loved how their story ends but can I just say that big teaser in the end makes me all the more excited for the next book in the Tainted Hearts series? Can’t wait to know more about the other characters and their stories!

Rating: 4/5

Review:

Secrets between Alessio and Ayla were finally unraveled. Lies, treachery, and deception were finally revealed. The second installment of Alessio and Ayla’s was nothing short of nerve-racking. I was constantly hooked on every chapter with all intrigues of mafia politics and of course, Alessio and Ayla’s budding romance.

Ayla was just starting to have a normal life until all of that was taken away by just one single treachery. When she was held captive again, Alessio went out of his way to look for her. His valiant efforts to save her just proved how much he really loves her. Even after all these months of searching, he never gave up and he always believed that Ayla would come back to him.

What sets this series apart is the courageous portrayal of trauma victims. The author’s remarkable depiction of Ayla’s abuse showed raw emotions that will just make you weep and sympathize with her character. That cliffhanger moment when Alessio finally found Ayla made my heart skip a beat. I’m looking forward for the next installment of this series and on how Alessio and Ayla will finally pick up the pieces of their lives back together.

Another thing that I like about this series is the storyline about Maddie, Artur, and Phoenix. The varying point of views from the different characters made the book even more interesting. It made me all the more invested in the story and I just can’t wait to read the next one!

Rating: 3/5
