Bound By Hatred Cora Reilly Bound By Hatred (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles #3) By Cora Reilly

I cannot remember if I did the review for book 1 of this series but I remembered reading it like it was yesterday and that’s saying something since I read atleast a book a day. So remembering it should say how much I liked book 1.

Book 1 sparked me to read this book since the characters in book 1 and 3 correlates. I would advise reading book 1 before this book. Book 2, however is on the back burner to read since I’m not that invested in the characters. 

This book series is basically an arranged marriage between two different mafia household. 

In this book both the hero and the heroine knows each other and are in-laws since the heroine’s sister marries the hero’s brother in book 1.

The heroine is head strong and she refuse to marry into the mafia although she was born into the mafia. She refused to adhear to the rules and laws of the mafia and wish that she can have a life of her own; one that has nothing to do with the mafia. She wanted to be a modern day woman and have her freedom to do whatever she pleases and the life that her father wants for her is nothing close to that.

The hero first sees her when she was a young girl and didnt pay her any attention since she was scrawny in his eyes. When his brother is set to marry her sister years later, they meet again and to his suprise she had blossomed into a beautiful woman. Her fiery spirit lite something in him and he knew from the forbidden kiss they shared that she had to be his. 

When the heroine learns of their marriage she becomes furious and plans to run away. With the help of her sister she manages to say hidden for 6 months. That is until the hero finds her in an apartment in Europe with another guy.


Ohh how the steams was pouring through his ear. Of course the guy she got caught with was killed on the spot and she was taken back to her father who was ashamed and disappointed with her. But more surprisingly the hero still wanted her and that very same day she became his wife.

She began living the life she had sworn she would never be apart of. Eventually and unexpectedly she became accustomed to it. Obviously it didnt hurt that she and her husband had chemistry. Of course she refused to be apart of it and refused to acknowledge that she belonged to this life she hates so much.

I loved the hero. He was such a cuddle bear behind the maifa and not once did he ever hid the fact that he loved the heroine. He never once backed down with a fight for her.

The heroine to me was very winy and I hated her behivor. I kept wanting to slap the shit out of her and scream  at her to wake up and see what she has with the hero is special.

All in all a great read.

Clam Jam

Clam Jam RC BoltClam Jam By R. C. Bolt
I have to say this book was hands down a really great read. It had a mixture of everything that a reader would be looking for in a good comedy,romance book. It was the perfect proportion of sugar to cream to make the most deliciously brewed coffee. (If you didn’t know by now I’m a coffee lover and this book was consumed in one gulp). 

The heroine was looking for a roommate and her only rule to herself was that her roommate had to be a girl. She was burnt by men one too many times and she didn’t need the hassle of having a guy as her roomate.

The hero was looking for a place to rent and came across the heroine’s place. Upon meeting her, it was love at first sight for him and was disappointed when he found out she didn’t want a male roommate or anything pertaining to men. So naturally, like all crazy men in love(not), he lied to her saying that he was gay. There problem solved!

And that’s how, ladies and gentlemen the book got it’s name.

Okay, so I have to be honest I didn’t know what the term “Clam Jam” meant so I had to do some research on my end before reading. It’s basically, for those who don’t know, a female version of “cock block”. Example, say you’re a female and you’re out at a club and you meet a guy. Everything is going great and you think you’ll get lucky until this other guy comes along and steal him from you, leaving the entire night a waste.

And that’s exactly what the hero do to the heroine throughout the book. Of course the heroine thinks the hero actually takes these guys home but in reality he doesn’t, because he’s not gay.

If you want to know what happens when the heroine finds out that her gay roommate is actually straight and have the hots for her then I would recommend you to read it.
