    I. Need. More. (brushes hand over forehead…and releases a breath) thankfully the next book is already out. Talk about a cliffhanger of uncertainty. Valentina Novak is the daughter of a despicable man who’s not only a mob boss but a trafficker. And he has given his daughter as a prize to an even slimier man named Sal. I’m thankful that he’s not going to be the hero in this story. All Sal deserves is a shallow grave. Now Adrian Doubeck on the other hand is a man I crave to know more about. Val coins I. Need. More.

Dark and decadent start to the story and I can’t wait to read more. 𝓋𝓍𝒽𝑒𝓍𝓃 𝓇𝑒𝒶𝒹𝓈 Instagram | Facebook | Bookbub

    That certainly piqued my curiosity.... Adrian became obsessed instantly the moment he saw Valentina but with a crime war brewing and him getting ready to take his place at the head of his family he can't let his emotions get ahead of him. One encounter with the stunning young woman leaves Adrian promising to make her his, and that fiancé of hers is just one more obstacle he has no problem killing to get what he wants...

    This is the prolongued prologue for the Vow to Protect series and it was short of course, but also so so good and such a tease, too. lol Definitely be prepared that you will want to continue with the actual story immediately after. <3 (and that one is addicting!)

    Valentina was excited at attending The Society's opening season gala as it would be her first time attending any party and relieved that her cousin and best friend Rose was attending with her even if their escort was Valentina's fiance Sal. The man her father was selling her off to. Sal was one of her father's business partners and they were both ruthless sinister monsters, but Sal was pure evil. Every Friday while her father was away in meetings Sal viciously enjoyed forcing her to watch video a Valentina was excited at attending The Society's opening season gala as it would be her first time attending any party and relieved that her cousin and best friend Rose was attending with her even if their escort was Valentina's fiance Sal. The man her father was selling her off to. Sal was one of her father's business partners and they were both ruthless sinister monsters, but Sal was pure evil. Every Friday while her father was away in meetings Sal viciously enjoyed forcing her to watch video after video of him and his men touching and abusing the children that his family trafficked. She was sick to her stomach at the horrors inflicted on them and the only nice thing her father had ever done for her was letting Sal know that he could not touch Valentina until they were married. So Sal took his sexual frustrations out on her with his fists. Adrian was hosting this year's open season gala. Open season...three months where everything shifts. Alliances will be made...blood will be shed...criminal activity including murder...another gala is held after the three months and mandatory nine months of peace with a severe penalty from the hands of all the ruling families for anyone crossing the line. No one has survived this punishment. Adrian couldn't wait to serve justice to his enemies, but no-one besides his closest soldiers know that he is also looking for a wife and as he looks across the room his attention is caught by a beautiful woman who is obviously scared of her escort. When he runs into her later near the restrooms he hands her a black card with only a phone number in gold lettering telling her to call if she ever needed anything. This is a short prequel to the Doubeck Crime Family duet. It is very well written and draws you in immediately with well developed characters. This book doesn't have a HEA and Valentina and Adrian only spend a few minutes with each other, but it gives you background into Valentina's desperation and why she gets involved with the man feared and hated by all. Highly recommend!

    Good start that definitely will having you wanting more if this story. This is a short Prequel to A Vow to Protect coming in August. It let's you see the main two characters Valentina and Adrian. Both are in crime families and are considered the higher of the mafia. Adrian is taking over for his deceased father and to avenge his mother's death. He's know as the monster and most fear him.

Adrian is taking over for his deceased father and to avenge his mother's death. He's know as the monster and most fear him. Valentina is the daughter who is mistreated by her father and her soon to be husband Sal and just wants away from her life but needs to protect her cousin Rose as much as she can. So with one meeting and only a few short sentences Valentina and Adrian have a connection and seem to understand one another. You get to see Valentina make a choice to use the number of Adrian to help her and Rose from the monster Sal but will Adrian be her monster slayer or will he be just another monster waiting to take from her? Only time will truly tell. So I feel like this has some serious potential to be a great story, so I can't wait for the next part to come out. If you like dark romance and the mafia grab this little short story and get ready for a small glimpse into this new world.

While she is scared of him and her dad, she leans on her bestie/cousin Rose for help. While at a business dealing, she sees Aiden. Both seem to be transfixed by the other when they learn who the other is. She is told he is the monster to fear, and he drawn to her innocents. The story flies and gives us a brief introduction to each character. We soon see at the end how they come to be together.

    Do you believe in love at first sight???!! This is a prequel, a dark mafia romance filled with drama, emotions, violence, danger and suspense leading to an entertaining and all consuming short tale which has me hooked and intrigued. Adrian has his eyes set on Valentina who is promised to another but we have to wait patiently for A Vow to Protect before we get our answers!!!!! I was given this as an ARC by the authors in exchange for a voluntary honest review which I was totally happy to provide.

    At First Sight is an action-packed prequel to a full length novel coming soon. Valentina is a sheltered princess promised to a slimy, evil man. She is forced by her father to endure his daily abuse. She meets a mysterious man at a party and she is intrigued. He can’t stop looking at her even though she is promised to another. I can’t wait to see what happens next. This great little novella left me wanting so much more.

    An intriguing prequel to Vow to Protect, I think I need to read the next book now. Valentina's father insists that she marries Sal, but Valentina knows she doesn't want to marry him. I can see that Valentina and Adrian's story is going to be not for the weak hearted, with the cruel men around her, and the cutting world they have built. Bring on the next book. I am voluntarily reviewing a copy I received, and giving my thoughts and opinions on it. An intriguing prequel to Vow to Protect, I think I need to read the next book now.

    This is a prequel novella with only 5 chapters. But WOW those chapters are packed with a lot. It is a well written story with wonderful characters. Seeing Adrian and Valentina meet and interact, you just know this is the way it is meant to be. Unfortunately Val is promised to another, Sal, who is a less than desirable person. It should be noted there are several trigger in this short story. But it’s definitely worth a read.

    I like it, but not alone. I haven't read the book that this is a prequel to, but I really want to now because of this. The one thing I didn't like is that this doesn't feel like it's own story because it's not. It's really a prologue or teaser, and though it says that, I just felt like it by its self feels a bit off. Though because it's free I'm not mad at it. It's a fun and quick read, and definitely left me wanting to try her other book out. I like it, but not alone.

    I raced through reading this prequel so quickly because it completely drew me in. A slimy, abusive fiance, an awful father and a mysterious stranger - Adrian. With Valentina stuck right in the middle of it all. It was a cracking start but my only criticism is that i now have to wait for the full book now. I cant wait

Poor Rose makes you want to protect her dearly. And Adrian damn I can not wait to read more about him. This story was like a prequel should be, strong, tensed and it is making you damn curious about the rest still to come. I read this prequel because I love Beck's books.
