By: Via Mari
5 out of 5 stars

The story CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3) by Via Mari is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It is a story that hooks you in from the very beginning and doesn’t let you go until you have read the final page. It is a story that is suspenseful, romantic, and steamy. I have grown to care about the characters of Brian and Jenny since I was first introduced to them. They are two people who deserve happiness and I couldn’t help but root for them to find it. The story finds Brian doing everything in his power to prove Jenny innocent of a crime she didn’t commit. Will his power and wealth also be enough to keep her safe from the mob who want her silenced? Will he be able to protect her? Jenny and Brian’s relationship is steamy and you can feel the passion/desire that they feel for each other. As these two find their way in their relationship the trust between them only grows. There is also plenty of dirty talking, teasing, and bantering going on between them. What does the future hold for them? Read this book to find out. This story has some twists and turns to it that I didn’t see coming. There were times I was turning pages to find out what would happen next. I also enjoyed reading about the secondary characters who play their part in the story. Most of them have been brought forward from the previous books. There are characters that are like family to Jenny and Brian and I loved when they all banter and interact with each other. The author has done a wonderful job in developing both the storyline and characters. This is a book and series that I would highly recommend reading.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Claimed (The Torzial Affair Book 3) by Via Mari is explosive and unfortunately the end of the series. This amazing series just gets better and better. The web of pain and betrayal, lies and deceit is a cleverly woven together plot that Via has masterfully put together. As with the others in the series the storyline is a brilliant complex, multifaceted and multidimensional which has the pages turning and the story ending before I was ready. The journey with these amazing characters has been one hell of a ride. I felt every emotion possible and was on the edge of my seat the whole way.   Jenny is fighting for her freedom. A precious freedom that could all be gone in a fraction of a second. Her life and her experiences will never be the same but it is all for nothing if the one person who counts doesn’t know truth from lies. The one person who knows how to take the pain away. The man she loves.

Brian will stop at nothing and no expense is spared to fight for the one thing he loves most in this world. Yes it is love and who would have thought that. But with so much conflicting information how much of it is truth and how much is lies.

I am sorry to see the series end but I can’t wait to see what comes next from Via.

Claimed by Via Mari


Claimed by Via Mari is an incredibly thrilling and suspenseful romance read with a perfect dose of BDSM. This is the third book in The Torzial Affair series, a series that must be read in order as each book follows where the last one left off.

I have thoroughly enjoyed following this series from start to finish, just like the first two I was able to read this book in one sitting as I got so caught up in the story that I didn’t stop until I reached the end.

Via Mari took me on an incredible journey with this series that I can’t wait to read more from her in the near future!
I would recommend this series to others!

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Claimed is the third and final book in the Torzial Affair Series by author Via Mari. This is the culmination of Jenny Torzial and Brian Carrington’s relationship and begins where Bound left off, in the courthouse with the verdict of Jenny’s trial. But just because the verdict is in doesn’t mean that the danger is over for Jenny or Brian. Someone wants Jenny silenced and Brian is willing to do anything for that not to happen.
The first half of this book was centered around the D/s relationship that Jenny and Brian are building which at times became a little redundant. Watch out for that halfway point though because that is where the nail-biting action takes off. There were so many twists and turns that I was on the edge of my seat, turning the page as fast as I could, because I needed to know what was going to happen next, who exactly were the bad guys, and would Brian be able to protect his love. By the end of the story I needed a drink it was that good of an ending. I will say, the author leaves you wondering though about certain characters (Jenny’s niece, brother and bodyguard) and whether they will get stories of their own. Hopefully they will and I will be one reader looking forward to reading about them. Thank you, Ms. Mari, for several hours of entertainment!

5 Stars

This had me an emotional mess..I hit all the feels in this one and the biggest was anger. So much going on, and just when I thought I had something figured out nope this author gave me whiplash.

I’ve read the first series and moved into this one and so far I can almost say I love this one even more and that is saying a lot because The Prestian series was completely awesome and if you don’t read this from there you will be missing out on so so much!

I’m not going into any detail, I don’t want to ruin anything for other readers but take my advice and read these books. Via Mari has moved to my favorite authors list like a speeding bullet and all I can say is bring on the next book. I can not wait!

Loved It!!

Brian Carrington has done everything in his power to prove Jenny Torzial, the love of his life, is innocent of a crime she did not commit, but will she pay the ultimate price for that freedom?

She knows too much, she has seen more than the mob can allow, and they will stop at nothing to ensure her silence.

Will Brian’s wealth and power be enough to stop them? Will the total dominance and submission he craves be more than she is ready for and push Jenny away, or capture her for a lifetime?



Via Mari lives in the Midwest with her husband and their loveable fur baby. As a child who was raised in both the United States and the United Kingdom, she spent countless hours traveling and developed a passion for the written word at a young age.

She is an avid reader of romance. In fact, you can still find her curled up in an overstuffed chair, especially during winter when the wood fire is crackling and popping, reading a page-turning novel until the early hours of the morning.

As she began researching and writing love scenes for her own series, it became apparent there seemed to be a cultural divide between what people believed was normal sexual behavior, or vanilla, and that which people considered BDSM. She enjoys creating characters and scenes that allow the reader to safely explore what they would and would not be willing to try.

Bound (The Torzial Affair Book #2) by Via Mari – Review by Angela Hayes

Bound (The Torzial Affair Book 2)Bound by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Bound is the second book in the Torzial series by Via Mari. This series really captivated me, and I’ve loved every minute that I have spent between its pages. I really liked Ms. Mari’s Prestian series, so I knew I would like this series too, especially as it focuses on character/s that we met in the Prestian books- who now get their own books/series. But I can honestly say that this book (and the series as a whole) are now my favourite reads of Ms. Mari’s. They have eclipsed the Prestian series, in my eyes, and left me needing more of Ms. Mari’s work.
This book picks up right where book one left off, so I really recommend reading that book first before starting on this one, so you are up to date with all the important factors and exciting developments- and are able to follow all the interconnected threads of the storyline. You don’t need to have read the Prestian books to enjoy this series, but as it has some shared/ recurring characters, as well as some timeline/storyline elements- I would advise you to- as it will definitely enhance your reading pleasure.
As with the first book, this is a romantic suspense that’s full of action, danger, secrets, hidden agendas, humour, mystery, lots more sexual exploration & awakening, some light bondage, spanking, red hot sizzling scenes, mafia, and lots of intrigue. There is a lot happening in the story, but Ms. Mari choreographs the whole thing seemingly effortlessly, keeping me enthralled- and in anticipation. Ms. Mari really seems to have hit her stride with these books, and is totally comfortable and at ease with her craft- which really shows in this really well written and captivating book!
After the intense developments in the last book, we find things are only intensifying for Jenny and Brain. She has become the primary suspect in the murder of her ex, and as if that weren’t enough for anyone to have to contend with, the mafia has put a target on her back. Jenny is still trying to come to terms with her own horrific ordeal- and Brian has had a lot to do with her being able to piece herself back together again. Brian wants her to trust him to protect her and relinquish ‘control’ to him- as he’s determined to do whatever it takes to protect her. But as more and more ‘evidence’ begins to mount, will he start to lose faith in her? Will these doubts drive them apart? Could she ever really trust him with her heart?
I really love these two, they are such fantastic characters- superbly crafted, with fully developed and complex personalities. I was completely immersed in their story, emotionally invested in them and their ‘lives’- strung out on all the detail, reading anxiously to discover what happens to them.
This is primarily a suspense- with a great erotic romance woven through it. I love how Via Mari is able to build such intense tension, chemistry, and intrigue- but manages to balance it all with lots of emotion, and a little humour.
The story does continue into the next book, but as you may have guessed by now, I didn’t take a break between books, and read the entire series back to back!
I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Thank you, Via Mari!

Bound: The Torzial Affair Book 2 by: Via Mari- Review by Jessica Ranslow
Brian Carrington has made it his priority to keep Jenny Torzial safe. That proves to be a full time job with the mafia an ever present danger and the legal system determined to convict Jenny for the murder of her ex boyfriend. While Brian stays busy fighting the external forces that threaten her, Jenny continues to battle her internal demons. Allowing Brian to dominate Jenny in the bedroom is exactly what Jenny had always wanted, but she maintained a level of control over her life outside of the bedroom. Can Brian continue to keep Jenny safe without Jenny feeling like she’s lost control of every aspect of her life? Will Jenny ever get to live her life without looking over her shoulder and wondering what, or who, will come for her next?
Via Mari does not disappoint with book 2 in her series!

Shattered (The Torzial Affair)
By Via Mari

Shattered is book one in the, Torzial affair series by Via Mari. Having never read anything by this author before I was impressed with the writing style. This book is written in such a way it will pull you right into the story from the beginning. I was captivated by the end of the first chapter. This book centres around Jenny who has a successful consulting business. Jenny has been totally destroyed by her ex partner. Brian is the heir to a steel empire who comes across some what cocky. Until he met Jenny he was so sure all women wanted him for was his money. As soon as they met the chemistry between them was obvious. But now Jenny needs to learn to trust again and Brian needs to be less cocky and see Jenny as the awesome broken woman she is, and show her that love can be found again. But the question is have either of them got the heart to take that extra step to love, trust and a happy life?
