Title: His: Dominic
Series: Sabatini Family #1
Author: Fiona Murphy
Genre: Contemporary Mafia Romance
Release Date: January 1, 2021
Any minute I’m going to wake up from this nightmare. Being tied up and thrown in the trunk of a car doesn’t happen in real life. Except the silk tie around my wrists feels very real. And my father, Johnny Conti, the head of the Outfit, is telling me to be a good girl—that I’m to be the wife of the man who tied me up and has me over his wide shoulder.
Some women might swoon over gorgeous Dominic Sabatini with his blue eyes, dimples, and muscled body in a silk suit. Not me. Those are just distractions from who, what he really is: a ruthless killer with blood on his hands and ice in his veins.There is no way Dominic could actually want to marry me. A virgin, curvy, buried in an all-girls Catholic boarding school for most of my life and seventeen years younger than him. He’s marrying so far beneath him it’s absurd.
No to all of it. Tomorrow I’m going to marry the man of my dreams, a nice, kind accountant. I’m going to have the safe, boring life I’ve always longed for. I have to escape this nightmare. But Dominic growls I belong to him and he keeps what is his.
This a mafia romance with dark elements.
While this is the first book in a series it is a standalone and does not end in a cliffhanger.
It hits me. I’m not getting out of this. I won’t be able to get away from Dominic Sabatini. Not today, a month, or even a year from now. If somehow, some way I got away, he’d find me. I have no idea why instead of scaring me, the realization thrills me.
No, no. Fear shakes me out of my reverie. I can’t just give up. There has to be a way. There is always a way, isn’t there?
I startle at the knock on the bathroom door.
“Regina, get moving. I’m starving. I want to grab something to eat then get back on the road.”
Looking down at the dress, anger at Dominic and myself fuels me. Today was supposed to be my wedding day, this is my wedding dress. I refuse to make this easy, for either of us.
Hands shaking, I put on the pretty white lace bra and plain cotton white briefs. Forcing my fear down, I slip into the white dress.
When I open the door, Dominic is standing by the door leading out of the room, carrying his leather duffle. His eyes go cold. “Change.”
“No.” I’m defiant, refusing to back down from the dark energy vibrating around him.
He drops the duffle and crosses the room in all of three steps. A hand goes around my throat and my stupid body betrays me, going instantly limp against him. “Take it off or I will.”
I shake my head as much as I can. I blink and holy fucking crap, his other hand finds the neckline and tears it from my body. We’re both breathing hard and fast. The hand around my neck lets me go and fucking shit, I stumble into him. His hands wrap around my arms as he catches me close, his mouth at my ear. Hot air is sliding down the skin of my neck and I can’t fucking breathe.
“You are mine. You belong to me. I can make you tremble in ecstasy or fear. The decision is yours.”
Due to commitment issues I have lived in many different cities and my favorite is Chicago but I have managed to settle into Austin and perhaps my commitment issues are behind me.
I have enjoyed reading from a very young age and it wasn’t long before the children books bored me and I read the books my mother enjoyed Stephen King and Dean Koontz and I didn’t sleep without the light on until I was about ten.
I came across my first Harlequin by accident and it was love at first read, no one died and happy endings? It was a whole new world and I loved it.
I wrote my first story at eight and everyone died, of course. Since then I would like to think I’ve gotten better and now I’m writing the happily ever afters I first fell in love with, with some hot sex thrown in along the way.
As a plus size woman myself, I have started writing the stories I always wanted to see myself in but never did. And now I’m ecstatic to give BBWs the happily ever afters with hot Alphas I want to read.
My ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ Review of His by Fiona Murphy
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5
Wow, these guys get better as the stories go on and the more powerful, they are the harder they fall. I loved Dominic’s story and his fall.
Dominic Sabatini is a Capo in The Outfit. Son of Anthony Sabatini and cousin to Cesar, Dante, and Vincenzo Sabatini. He runs a club and has women when he wants them. He fought to keep his father’s territory and Dom’s right to what would eventually be his when he was fifteen and on his own, while his father did time. He went to Johnny Conti, now the Don of The Outfit for help to maintain what was his. He is now a powerful Capo and very rich man. He lives his life on his own terms and doesn’t want to marry or have children. He is fine with spoiling his cousin’s children.
Regina Conti has never felt as if she was wanted or loved. After her mother died her father sent her to Italy to boarding school, at the age of six and she has remained there until her father, Johnny called her pleading to come home to New York and get to know him since he is sick and dying. It’s not what she wants to do, but she has no choice the matter and when she thinks he is better she’s ready to head back to Italy until she meets Richard Taylor. She believes he is the love of her life and sneaks around to meet him. The only problem is that she doesn’t really know him.
I loved this story and the immediate connection between Regina and Dominic was great. I loved that Regina, a young, innocent girl could make Dominic forget who he was. Their story is painful and angsty, but they finally find their way through it all and find their HEA. I loved how Dominic was instantly ready to give Regina anything she wanted, with one caveat, and then he relented on that as well later on. I love the Sabatini men and Dominic did not disappoint. I cannot wait for the next book in this series and hope for more as well. I love dangerous, powerful, dominant men the Sabatini’s are and the fact that they become putty in their women’s hands when they finally quit fighting their hearts. This story has a few twists that were interesting, and I am hoping for more on that as the series goes on as well. I give this story a 4.5-star review and recommend it to readers that enjoy Mafia Romance, dominant men that know how to treat a lady, as well as keep them in line.
