Brutal & Raw: Mafia Romance & Psychological Thriller (Beneventi Family Book 1) by Sonya Jesus – Review by Bobbi Wagner

Brutal & Raw (Beneventi Family, #1)Brutal & Raw by Sonya Jesus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. This is the first book in this author’s new series, I can’t wait for the second book. I have read all of this author’s books and this is my favorite yet so far. This is a well written story that has a little bit of everything in it including suspense that left me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what was lurking in the shadows. Her characters are connectable and both good and bad which makes the story engaging and a page turner. Lyla is on the run from the mafia boss but she is also the one that has the control to bring his organization down. She is a great, strong character that has a great control but what will she do with it? I highly recommend reading this book and find out what happens next.

He wanted everything. He could have my nothings too.

My whole life, I’ve been running, living just under the radar. The day I arrived on the East Coast, looking for a new start, I found an end instead. One careless night landed me in the hands of a dark mafia boss, who wanted nothing more than to render me a number—to eviscerate my identity with his brutal mind game.  

327.

That’s what he called me. That’s all I was to him. 

At least at first, before Breaker Beneventi told me all his family secrets, trickled his way into my heart, and then ordered my death. He set me free, knowing the butcher would find me. 

Now, I’m the girl who escaped. The one with the power to destroy his organization. And he’s relentlessly searching for Lyla Vaughn all over the country, spilling the blood of innocents and losing his control. 

But he’s not going to find me. Because that’s not my name.

From Bestselling author Sonya Jesus comes “Brutal and Raw” a psychological thriller romance full of plot twists, interwoven with dark mafia romance.

Sonya’s a nerd—a cool nerd—who loves science, books, make-up and unicorns. She even has unicorn slippers and unicorn plushes adorn her office. It’s not an obsession (or so she says), it’s simply an ode to her imaginative side. Storytelling has been her passion since her youth, but her family believes it’s more than that.

Painting, sketching, carpet-making, lyrics, poetry—artistic endeavors have no limit with Sonya. They may not always come out perfect, but art serves as an outlet, which helps balance out the factual, science-driven part of her brain. 

 Though she’s fun-loving, complex-minded, and heart-driven, her philosophy on life is quite simple: Shit happens. Keep going. 

When asked to elaborate, she said, “Believing in yourself is probably one of the hardest things to do, but look in the mirror. You’re still standing. That’s strength. Don’t underestimate yourself.”

Sonya also believes in fairytales and in the beautiful things a mind can conjure. She’s a firm believer in empowering the crazy fictional ideas, putting them down on paper, and letting them flourish into a story. 

 

“There’s so much potential in a dream… a thought… not exploring it seems like such a waste of something absolutely beautiful.”

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Game of Fear: A gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist (Fearless Series) by Gledé Browne Kabongo. This book had me completely drawn in and on the edge of my seat. This author knows the meaning of suspense and how to keep readers guessing. From page one I knew I was in for quite the adventure with Abbie, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. It’s not an overly long book but that didn’t hinder the storyline in anyway, it’s fast paced but not rushed. It’s a well written thriller that I really enjoyed. Characters are complex and well written. If you’re looking for something that keeps you on the edge of your seat I highly recommend this book. Four stars and highly recommended.

Glede Browne Kabongo probably turned into my favorite thriller author! This book took you to a level and then some. I was gibbing my chair and didn’t want to stop reading!

We have Abby who is the model student and human being. Top grades and on her track to Harvard until something in her past comes up. It was something she buried but no deep enough. Someone is calling her out on the events of her past but she has no idea who it is.

I loved reading this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat and it had me guessing who this person could be. I have fallen in love with this book and the author’s writing. The author became a one-click for me!

☆☆☆☆☆
This is a full length novel. A thriller written for YA, but don’t let that stop you. It is a great intense story for all.

As I won’t give away any spoilers, I can tell you that this is a must read! Abbi Cooper is at St. Matthew’s Academy headed towards a major league college. Her nightmare is about to happen and she has no clue who could be behind it all. She must play the game and find out who knows what.

Glede’ Browne Kabongo has a great imagination! Her story is gripping and will keep you turning the page, just to see what happens next. Her characters are typical teenagers. You know the ones you hang out with. This story gives you suspense as well as well as keeps you up all night to finish the book. Once you sit in this rollercoaster, hang on as its about to get real. I enjoyed this story and look forward to spreading the word. This is a new author for me! One I will continue to follow.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is not in my normal age group range for characters (high school). I just feel i don’t relate or they’re acting older than they should but this had a nice balance so it held me to the story.
Abbie is destined to go far but someone is trying to blackmail her for the one wrong thing she ever did. I kind of figured it out early on but wasn’t 100% sure until closer to the end.
Will read more from this author as it seems with the sneak peak at the end the story continues on for Abbie in college and another mystery.

“Sometimes good girls do very bad things”, and good girl Abbie Cooper may have done something very bad indeed. Abbie has always been an overachiever especially academically and her goal is to get into the Ivy League, Princeton. However at her current school, St. Matthew’s Academy the pressure is immense and is also full of wicked games and dirty secrets.
One day Abbie receives a package from ‘The Avenger’, the package contains photos exposing Abbie’s worst and hidden secret, this not only puts her chances of attaining her goal of Princeton in jeopardy but also puts the life’s of her family at risk too. The Avenger, says her secret will be kept but for a price, and Abbie must play the game to find out who the Avenger is, if he exists at all. All Abbie knows is that someone knows her secret and is out to ruin her.
I was hooked from page one until the last page, however I did find the book a bit slow to start with but once I got into the story I found it flowed well. I enjoyed this suspenseful thriller and found it was full of twists and turns which kept me guessing until the end and it’s shocking conclusion. The novel is part of a series and I look forward to reading further books by Glede Browne Kabongo.
