The mafia never lets you go.
I thought I was safe, free, but I never expected to find myself locked in a cage.
I’m in his territory. His prison.
A fate worse than death awaits me if I can’t get away, so when the opportunity of salvation presents itself I grab it, even if I’m unsure if I can trust the hand I’m holding.
The only way out is through, exposing secrets and spilling blood.
Things aren’t how they appear. Nobody is what they seem.
Not even me.

This is my second book from the “Sinister Fairytales Collection”. What I’ve read so far is sooo good! “Abducted” is a Beauty and the Beast retelling with a mafia twist. Get ready to be sucked into the story!!
Ella is working as a stripper at Castle Lounge. She ran away from her father and her former life 3 years ago. She needed to be free and with her father being an associate of the Ferrante crime family, she couldn’t be. One night after leaving work, she’s ambushed and kidnapped. Domenico “La Bestia” is the 4th most powerful man in the Ferrante family. He’s in charge of ta sex-trafficking ring and Ella is the newest girl they took. There’s more to it though. Ella is attracted to him despite the situation. She feels alive with him and welcomes his savagery.
“I am yours. From this life to the next.”
These two are in for a wild ride. I can’t explain many things without giving the story away. The relationship between them won’t be easy. There are too may secrets and other hidden players that will mess things up. The story is written in such a way that you can’t help but be right there with the characters. I loved how the author handled the retelling. I have to say that Beauty and the Beast in a mafia setting is amazing!!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
K.I. Lynn is the USA Today Bestselling Author from The Bend Anthology, Amazon Bestseller Becoming Mrs. Lockwood, and the Amazon Bestselling Series, Breach. She spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing. Characters have always run around in her head, acting out their stories, but it wasn’t until later in life she would put them to pen. It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.
Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.
