Review: Bound By The Past by Cora Reilly

Title: Bound By The Past

Series: Born in Blood #7

Author: Cora Reilly

Dante
My life is a tale of betrayal.
I killed so many because they betrayed our cause, because they betrayed the Outfit.
A hypocrite. A liar. A murderer.
That’s what I am.
Five times I betrayed the Outfit. With my blood I made a vow to our cause, swore my life to it, promised to put the Outfit first. Above all else.
Five times I chose a woman over the good of the Outfit. I betrayed my father. My vow. My men.
You reap what you sow.
Would my betrayals destroy everything I swore to protect?

Valentina
On our wedding day I made a vow to stand by Dante’s side.
In good and in bad times.
To love him through it all.
Growing up in the mafia, I knew the challenges in our life would be numerous. I never expected them to tear at the very base of our family, of our existence.

I’m going to make a bold statement here. Dante and Val were my favourite original couple!

So, as you can imagine, the thought of the contents of this book had me very eager to read!

‘My love for her hadn’t been born in a single heartbeat but it didn’t burn less fiercely I realized now.’

We get the events we already know but from Dante and Valentina’s point of view. Who knew Mr Cold Fish himself could be so…..human! I just love them and their family. It was delish.

Reading this cemented the fact that D & V are defo my favourite couple.
