Matteo by Rachael Orman Blog Tour

Being born into slavery, I never thought my owner, my very mother, would sell me. And she didn’t.

Until Matteo.

I was tormented, struggling to come to terms with my new life then he narrowed it down to two things.

Pleasure. Pain.

The man confused me at every turn with his unexpected and unattainable desires.

If only he’d speak to me.

If only he’d tell me how to avoid upsetting him.

If only I could please him.

**Disclaimer: This is a DARK erotic Italian Mafia story. There are twisted behaviors in this book not everyone will be able to handle. Explicit, violent, and sexual scenes are involved. Not for the wary of heart.**

“Sir, I’m sorry, but you cannot be back here,” the woman insisted once I was locked away.

“Find your manager and bring her to me,” Matteo answered her, loudly enough that I heard it through the door.

I heard her huff and the sounds of her retreating footsteps. Ripping my old dress over my head, I pulled on a pair of lacy panties and a bra that matched. I took a fortifying breath before cracking the door open.

Matteo was speaking in hushed tones to a woman in a suit who seemed to be apologizing to him, but as soon as he lifted his eyes to me, she murmured a few more words and made a hasty exit.

“Mmm. I’ll have to see more to decide if I like it,” Matteo spoke to me as he pushed off the wall. He ran his fingers over the rough hair that had grown along his jaw throughout the day as he peered at me.

Shoving the door open farther, I let him see all of me, then turned around so he could see the back as well.

“Okay. Next one,” Matteo said after a second.

I turned to face him again expecting more, but he pulled his phone from his pocket, showing me that was all he intended to say about that outfit. Feeling like I’d let him down, I shuffled through the many outfits he’d picked out to find the smallest, skimpiest piece in the bunch. Not bothering to look in the mirror once I had it on, I threw the door open, hoping to shock a response out of him. Instead, I found a woman on her knees in front of him. Her head was bobbing up and down and he looked up to meet my gaze with half-open eyes. With a nod in my direction, he turned his attention to the woman obviously sucking his cock.

Embarrassed, I shut the door quietly and leaned my head back against it. I’d never seen someone else perform such an act and certainly didn’t expect it to be happening to the man who owned me while we were out together. How could he speak to me about such naughty things and then turn to another woman in the next moment?

Matteo Rossi is looking for a girl but not just any girl. He needs one that will pass his father's test. His father Fausto, is the head of the Italian Mafia and wants Matteo to find a wife and give him an heir. But what Matteo wants is a slave that will do exactly what he says and wants and when she doesn't he will punish her severely. He goes to the Madam's house for a slave auction and when he doesn't see what he wants, he makes it known to the madam. When she takes him to the basement, he finds what he is looking for. But what will he loose in the process? Gia has never been brought to the auctions and no one has ever been to the basement. She is surprised when Matteo takes her innocence and then she realizes that she has been sold by her mother. Does Matteo ever regret what he does to Gia? Will Gia survive this ordeal?

This was a hard story to read but I couldn't put it down. Rachael has taken us into a world that most never think about but it does happen in this day and age. Human trafficking, slavery and sexual abuse/rape. To me this is more of an information story than a fictional story because even if you buy it and can't read it then go to the end and read the statistics and hotline information. I am sure this will shock you as it did me. You never think that a loved one will do this to someone they love. I can't wait to see what will happen next in this series. I love Rachael Orman and her writing style. She has a way of drawing you in and keeping your attention until the end and leaving you wanting more.

Matteo comes with a WARNING. Do yourself a favor and READ IT. If you can't read about abuse and violence...then don't read this one. If on the other hand, if you love the darkness please read Matteo because it deals with all things dark and you will really enjoy it.

Gia was born as a slave, her only goal in life is to please her owner. She knows nothing else. She's never experienced life in anyway. When she is sold to Matteo, everything changes. She is dealt a shitty hand by her mother and was a product of her environment unfortunately so was Matteo. Even with all the abuse she comes into her own. Matteo was a very hard ruthless selfish man, but when it's all said and done Gia changes Matteo as much as he changes her.

This really was a good read. Matteo was a page turner for sure. I felt bad for Gia but there was something about Matteo. Yes he is all kinds of messed up and did horrible things but...yeah I was digging Matteo. Nothing better than a well written dark story.

Be very clear, when it says this book is dark, and violent, and should not sit easily with you as you read, that is exactly how it is.

That said, this is a very well written book about a horrifying topic. One which most of the world conveniently forgets. So to give it four stars and say I like this book, isn't exactly true – I knew I should read it, and by the end, I was thankful of my life, and of how I treat my daughters, but like isn't the right emotion. I was sad, disturbed and affected. Thankfully, insight into the thoughts of Matteo brought the stress levels down at just the right moments, and the ending ... works.

Thank you Ms. Orman for having the insight to write such things, even if they are difficult to read!

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.

I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.

I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.

Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.
