Great dark read, thoroughly enjoyed itSofia is the fourth story in the Bittersweet Familia by Melissa Jane and this one does not disappoint.Marcela Ortiz s story is one you will not soon forget She is caught up in a world where violence, domination, slavery, and horror become part of her everyday life A life which she cannot escape, but a life she tries every day just to live through She is strong, but even strong women have their limits and Sofia is brought to those limits often during this story Her journey is tough, and extraordinarily sad at times.This book starts out with two sisters going out on a fantastic yachting adventure Marcela meets the gorgeous, Xavier and, of course, romance ensues But not for long There s a twist in the story and Marcela is taken captive by a Mexican cartel boss and her life is irrevocably changed as she becomes his sex slave To taunt Marcela, he changes her name to Sofia and her life is no longer her own.This is a brutally addictive book that you will be flipping the pages and before you know it, it will be over I loved this book and five stars do not do it justice I can thoroughly recommend it one click this read today.

I received a ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.4.5 read.This is the fourth book in the series and in my opinion you really need to read the first three books before this one to fully appreciate this book otherwise you wont get this book at all Its hard to give a review without giving to much away so I ll keep this short and sweet and this is a gripping, intense, dark suspenseful book that takes you on a compete emotional ride throughout and I loved every minute of it It is a dark read and there could be some triggers for some readers I was gripped from the first chapter with this book and is full of surprises I m not usually a dark book type of girl I admit I m of a soft center but this book is so well wrote and its such a gripping series that the dark side of it just added to it for me and I loved getting out of my comfort zone.Well done Melissa on an amazingly gripping series that worked well on my dark side Cant wait to see what else you write. Must Read This book is a must read It is the fourth and final book in the series and I would highly recommend that you read the first three books before reading this one so that you can get the whole big picture, and truly be able to appreciate the story fully You will love Marcela, she is a beautiful, strong character, and you will find yourself becoming emotionally invested in her and her happiness and well being This book is suspenseful, dark, and gritty, and deals with some things that may be triggers to sensitive some readers It is absolutely riveting and very hard to put down once you start I was sucked into the story from the start and definitely did not want to put this book down I don t want to leave any spoilers, but I will say prepare yourself for one hell of a ride I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 StarsWARNING If you ve not read the other books in the Bittersweet Familia series then this review may contain spoilers These books cannot be read as standalones and must be read in order.This is Sofia s story who we first met in Little Doll You may remember her as the woman at Hector s mansion who was in charge of getting the girls ready for the nights they were to be paraded in front of potential buyers Now, she didn t come off particularly well in Little Doll in her dealings with Laila but this book really helps you to understand what she was going through and how the things she did she did only to survive Some parts of this book are hard to read, Sofia went through so much that you can only admire her strength and durability.You get to find out how Sofia to came to be at the hell on earth that is Hector s mansion and it gives you a great understanding of her character The events of this story occurred in Little Doll and Crimson Desert but obviously we see it from Sofia s point of view I did find at around 70% in that because I knew what was coming my interest wasn t as piqued as it could have been but reading from Sofia s POV was giving me a different enough view point that I still enjoyed the story I was very pleased with the ending and overall I have immensely enjoyed this series I definitely wouldn t hesitate to pick up of this authors work. I went into this series thinking it s the same old story but let me tell you each side has a story to tell and a part to play it was actually amazing
