Disavow (Underworld Kings) by Bella Di Corte
ABOUT THE BOOK
He was my only oath.
Aniello Assanti was a monster dressed in a gentlemen’s suit. He was everything I should’ve feared and run away from. A walking nightmare. He belonged to an organization that valued money over life; power over free will; codes over love. And if that wasn’t enough of a deterrent, he was strictly forbidden.
I, Rosalia Lombardozzi, solemnly vow…no fraternizing with the men who belong.
I worked for the same organization, and even with that oath forever marking my tongue, I was drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Something existed between us that not even the fire of disloyalty could turn to ash. Some called it obsession. I called it love. The world we lived in called it an act of betrayal. To disavow meant certain death.
When the heart takes an oath, though, it is more sacred than any vow spoken—it’s the one thing worth living and worth dying for.
If you bleed, I hemorrhage. If you die, I die.
The Underworld Kings is written by different authors and I have read two so far. Bella Di Corte knows how to write passionate mafia romances with men who would die to protect their women.
Aniello Assanti is a cold-blooded murderer, a killer of killers and runs Murder for Hire, Inc. Some would think his fatal flaw is his job, but it’s his beautiful employee Rosalia Lombardozzi who will ultimately be his downfall. The rule is no fraternization with an employee. Rosalia is an orphan who is bullied by the other women at the club. Her almost fatal car accident took two years from her memory and Aniello knows more about what happened than what he’s letting on.
Rosalia is forbidden to Aniello because there is no fraternizing among employees. If you break the oath, you face death. But there is more to their love story than Rosalia thinks. Aniello knows something about the memories she has lost and watching her discover all the heartbreaking secrets is well written and very unique. Rosalia and Aniello are meant to be together and their love is intense. The twists and turns in Rosalia’s lost memories are surprising and I enjoyed the fact that there is an epilogue to wrap up their love story.
A master of her craft, Bella Di Corte ratchets up the tension in this haunting and exquisitely written tale of buried secrets and past tragedy.
Thank you to Ms. Di Corte for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.
Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three dogs.
Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.
She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her at if you’d like to reach out.
