Lita’s Book Review: 4 Stars
Owned (A Dark Mafia Romance) by Clarissa Wild is the conclusion to Harper and Marcello’s story. The story picks up with Harper living on the streets hiding from Marcello. She is all mixed up over all she has learned about her life. Her parents aren’t her parents. Marcello knew alot about all of this and didn’t tell her. Her real dad was killed in front of her eyes and most importantly her conflicted feelings for Marcello. She is all over the place and making poor decisions. I have to stay that as ridiculous and preposterous as this story was I still liked it. I don’t want to give the story away but the things that happened I have a hard time seeing the feasibility of the scenario. Regardless I loved both Harper and Marcello. Their tug of war regarding their feelings for each other kept me entertained. The sexual chemistry was off the charts. And the things Marcello did and endured he is either a God, has super human strength or is just one bad gangsters. Either way I am totally team Marcello. And I loved the ending. 4 stars for me.

Owned is the second book & the conclusion in a Dark Mafia Romance Duet. Harper is now hiding on the streets from Marcello. Harper finds herself saved from some drug addicts also living on the streets. But, who was she saved by? The other bad guys. This book is full of bad guys. Just one worse than the other. And, of course, our antihero bad guy, Marcello.
I loved reading this series/duet or whatever it is called. Owned has a very sexy ending! 4 stars

With a single finger, he reaches for my face, but not in a threatening way. Instead, he gently grasps a strand of my hair, swiping it away from my cheek before tucking it behind my ear.
“You don’t need to snoop. If you want to know something about me, ask. I am more than willing to give if only you would ask.”
His strokes are so soft that it moves me and takes my breath away. He looks at me with such intensity that it’s hard to look away. But then I remember that him lying to me was the sole reason I ran away.
So I turn my head away from the palm of his hand. “You expect me to be honest with you, yet you won’t do the same for me.”
He frowns. “What do you mean?”
“Why else do you think I ran away?” I say. “You lied to me about the fire. My parents. My father. About everything you could.”
“I didn’t lie. I omitted the truth,” he says with a tightened jaw.
“That’s the same thing,” I scoff. “You knew who I was, and you chose not to tell me.”
He grabs my arm and pushes me farther against the pillar, trapping me between him and the concrete. “I did it to protect you. Because I knew you would hate me if I told you the truth. Harper, please.”
My lips unlatch as I look up into his face. Did he just say … please?
“I hate this. I hate arguing with you.” His jaw tenses up again along with the muscles in his chest. “But what I hate more is that I cannot choose.”
Suddenly, he smashes his lips onto mine, and I’m captured by surprise. His lips are rough against my softness, dominant against my sensitivity, and it pushes all my buttons. It confuses me to the point where I don’t even know what I’m feeling anymore. Because when his lips are on mine, everything else ceases to matter, ceases to exist.
And that … that’s what’s been scaring me.
When his lips unlatch, my body is on fire, and I want nothing more than to kiss him right back.
But I know I shouldn’t.
Not until I know for sure what it is that I feel.
What it is that he feels for me.
“I want … everything from you,” he groans. “So much that it destroys me.”
