Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Disavow by Bella Di Corte @XpressoTours

He was my only oath.

Aniello Assanti was a monster dressed in a gentlemen’s suit.

He was everything I should’ve feared and run away from. A walking nightmare. He belonged to an organization that valued money over life; power over free will; codes over love.

And if that wasn’t enough of a deterrent, he was strictly forbidden.

I, Rosalia Lombardozzi, solemnly vow…no fraternizing with the men who belong.

I worked for the same organization, and even with that oath forever marking my tongue, I was drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Something existed between us that not even the fire of disloyalty could turn to ash.

Some called it obsession. I called it love.

The world we lived in called it an act of betrayal. To disavow meant certain death.

When the heart takes an oath, though, it is more sacred than any vow spoken—it’s the one thing worth living and worth dying for.

My Review:

Rosalia Lombardozzi works at Club Desolation, a club known as Club D, a club that was started by Murder for Hire, Inc. Men from many different criminal syndicates frequently visit Club D.

Anyone who works for Club D. has to take an oath that they will always be loyal to the club. If they can’t keep their mouths shut then they are likely to be found in a ditch somewhere. Rosalia is a hostess at Club D and she is also in charge of the other women who work there.

Rosalia is not even allowed to fraternize with anyone who works there or their clientele as that is a big no, no in their world. Doing so can also lead to their death. Rosalia was in an accident and has lost two years of her life because of it. She doesn’t know if she will ever get her memory back.

There is this one guy at Club D that Rosalia is very attracted to but she tries very hard to keep it to herself as she doesn’t want to suffer the consequence. She tries to stay out of his way but that seems impossible when he always seems to be around.

I liked how Disavow held on to all of Rosalia’s secrets and that we as the reader learn of her secrets as and when she does. Disavow is written in such a way that it makes you feel as if you are a part of the story yourself.

Disavow holds plenty of mystery to keep you racing to the end as each and every secret is released. Disavow makes you feel what the characters feel. Rosalia is one of those characters that makes you feel everything she is feeling deeply. One minute you are in tears because you feel so bad for her and then the next you are over joyous for her. She will have you laughing and crying all at the same time.

I would love to see Disavow on the big screen as it reminded me of Law & Order: Organized Crime is some ways. I almost passed on reading Disavow but I am so glad that I didn’t as it was way better than I ever thought it would be. I can’t wait to check out more books from this author as this is the first of her books that I have read.

I would recommend Disavow to anyone who is into organized crime stories. One-click your copy of Disavow today for an adventure into the Underworld Kings!

Author Bio:

Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.

Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three dogs.

Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.

She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her at belladicorte@gmail.com if you’d like to reach out.
