“Mafia Romance Perfection! ***I received an ARC of this book for an honest review*** My main sentiments are WHAT A START! And WHAT AN END! I was deep in a reading slump when I started this book and it grabbed me by the throat (in the best way possible 😏) and pulled me right out! I was all in from the first chapter and completely captivated. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I love me a dark mafia romance and Consumed absolutely delivered. Niko was alpha-hole perfection (aka my kryptonite) and Luna was his perfect match with her badass self and incredible sense of humor. The rest of the characters were engaging and well rounded as well and I really appreciated that. That cliffy though! Absolutely BRUTAL! Although it certainly did it’s job with leaving me wanting more! Great job Loulou, I can’t wait for the next book!”

Do you believe in fated souls? That somewhere, out in this big wide world, there is one single person that is destined for you? One person, out of billions, that was hand crafted and moulded to be your missing piece, your one true love, your soulmate.

That somewhere out there, is the thing that you have been unknowingly searching for as you bounce from one person to the next, clocking up an impressive list of failed relationships and one-night stands. That it’s irrelevant how much effort you put in to make those relationships work, because they are destined to fail, that it isn’t the person fate has paired you with, that it’s just the person fate has given you to keep you busy until your path finally crosses that of your soul mate.

Yeah, personally, I think it’s all a load of crap.

Sure, I believe in love. Of course, love is real. I just don’t believe that there is only one person in this whole planet that is meant for another and no one else. It’s ridiculous and I personally will not allow such a childish and over romanticised notion to have control over my emotions, or be the explanation for such intense, confusing, and well, yeah, unexplainable emotions and feelings.

You see it is said that everyone has a story of how they met their soulmate, their one true love, and it almost always starts with hearts and flowers, rainbows and unicorns, princesses, princes, shit, knights in golden friggin’ armour, and all that other happy mushy crap.

It almost always starts that way,

but sometimes it doesn’t.

Sometimes the story is a little on the darker side. Sometimes it starts with hatred and anger, violence and cruelty, monsters, demons, and knights in black, blood-stained armour.

Yeah, sometimes true love doesn’t always come hand in hand with your so-called soul mate. Sometimes you can detest the one your soul is fated to. Sometimes the person the soul that is bound for yours is inside can be as close to being the devil as humanly possible. Your soulmate might not even want to be tied to you, or you to them.

None of that matters though.

I mean, if this whole soulmate and destiny bullshit is real, because if it’s truly meant to be, it won’t matter how much hate, anger, violence, blood and even death it takes to get there, that’s where you will end up…

Regardless of whether your heart still beats or not.
