Promises and Pomegranates: A Dark Contemporary Romance (Monsters & Muses)

by Sav R. Miller (Author)
4.1

From USA Today bestselling author Sav R. Miller comes a dark and twisted romance inspired by the Hades and Persephone myth. Doctor Kal Anderson assumes his heart worked at some point in his life. But at thirty-two years old, the organ in his chest seems to play a mechanical role at best. His cold, emotionless existence gives him an edge as a fixer and in-house physician for the Mafia, while his judgment is impartial and complication-free. Until Elena Ricci, his bossโ€™s twenty-year-old daughter. After admiring the heartless doctor from afar most of her life, Elena catches him in a moment of weakness, and the pair shares a night of passion as they attempt to work each other from their systems. Only, the night seems to have the opposite effect. Elena is no longer a simple temptation to Kal, but a necessity. An obsession. One he wonโ€™t let anyone stand in his way ofโ€”even if that means crashing her wedding to another man, forcing her hand in marriage, and stealing her away to the corrupt island he resides on. Alone with the man of her nightmares for the first time ever, Elena starts to chip away at the layers of ice surrounding his hardened heart. But the warmth and depravity from her new husband may not be worth the secrets unveiled, or the lives that will forever be altered. Promises and Pomegranates is a standalone dark romance inspired by Hades and Persephone. Though it is not necessary, it is highly recommended to read their short prequel, Sweet Sin, before diving in.

    Why You'll Love This

    I read the second book first, not knowing this was a series. Loved the second one! I just finished this book today and wow. I was not expecting the MMC to share a condition that I also have, and to read the struggle he has with hearing certain sounds, it was like plucking the thoughts right from my brain. Misophonia is so hard to explain to people, what I feel and how it affects me when triggered. Reading Kalโ€™s turmoil about it made me feel less alone. Sometimes I wish I could shoot a clock for its ticking noise like he does ๐Ÿ˜‚ Overall, this was an enjoyable read and stoked to read the rest!

    Ok so I actually started this awhile ago but I didn't have the prequel and that annoyed me so I put it down for a long time. Well I finally was able to read the prequel and dove back in and I'm glad I did. I loved this. If you're not into a little b l o o d play, then don't read this. But I liked it. And these two could barely have a conversation without going at it so it's plenty steamy!

    From the moment we met Kallum Anderson I knew I was in trouble, a bad-ass doctor who uses his degree and medical knowledge to beat up bad guys? On top of his poetry skills, deep emotional turmoil and gut-wrenching childhood experiences heโ€™s dealt with add the spice and romance of Hades and his Persephone and you have this beautifully written Mafia story. When I say I could not put this book down and fell asleep thinking of this book, I mean it. 10/10.

    I don't write reviews often (mainly because I don't know what to say), but this book got me hooked from the first page and I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to the author. Honestly, I'm usually a very slow reader, but I couldn't put it down and finished it in less than 24 hours. Everything was amazing, the world-building was engrossing, the pacing was on point, both of the main characters were equally interesting (and I can't remember the last time a character pissed me off as much as Carmen), and the darkness surrounding it?? Omg, perfect! Although this is not a fantasy book, it definitely felt magical, thank you so much for letting us read about Kallum and Elena's story!

    **REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS** Promises & Pomegranates by Sav R. Miller is Book 1 in the Monsters & Muses series which is a series of six interconnected standalones and is a follow on from the Sweet Sin prequel novella. It is not required but advised to read the novella before Promises & Pomegranates as it gives us an introduction to the FMC & MMC as well as some secondary characters that are pivotal to the characters and plot. The story itself begins with Kal and Rafael chatting in the latterโ€™s office as it has come to their attention that the security feed all over the Ricciโ€™s home has been infiltrated and the tryst between Elena and Kal are now on a flashdrive that Rafael is now watching thanks to Kal showing it to him. Believing thereโ€™s a blackmailer out there intent to bring down his already crumbling empire Rafael needs Kalโ€™s help and knows he doesnโ€™t work for free so when he asks what his price to help ensure the blackmailers stay quiet, the answer is simple: Elenaโ€™s Soul is the price to be paid. Elena Ricciโ€™s wedding day, around 8 weeks after the events of Sweet Sin. She is betrothed to Mateo De Luca who isnโ€™t a nice guy and their marriage is more of an agreement between their fathers more than love. Elena is not a fan of Mateo and he is abusive and degrading, however, she gives him as good as she gets โ€“ she was taught to fight and sheโ€™s good at it, even if it is a man that is hurting her. Whilst we donโ€™t see the abuse on page it is implied in the FMCs POV after the fact. Sheโ€™s so deeply infatuated by Dr Kallum Anderson who she freely gave her virginity to on her 20th birthday 8 weeks prior to her wedding. Dr Kallum Anderson is 32 years old, has a medical degree and is the enforcer/fixer for Rafael Ricci and Ricci Inc. Kal was only 13 when he met Rafael and his wife Carmen while he was at hospital with his mum who was dying of an aggressive form of cancer. When she succumbed to her disease, Kal reached out to his biological father who wanted nothing to do with him and he ended up in the foster system and soon he was picked up by Rafael from the street and groomed into being a fixer/enforcer by Rafael and groomed into a relationship with Carmen โ€“ the relationship is not depicted but it is implied and discussed. On the wedding day, Elena is dreading the whole thing and sheโ€™s told she will learn to love her husband and as they are about to leave, he requests to see her and sheโ€™s trying to avoid it but she goes to see him anyway. When she arrives at his room, she sees him on bed looking very ill and throwing up and she is just watching him and then as the life slowly drains from him, she hears the voice of the person she has been longing for โ€“ Dr Kal Anderson โ€“ who makes no attempt to save Mateoโ€™s life. We then realise that he is responsible for the demise of Mateo and they are soon joined by a priest and Rafael and Kal then forces Elena to marry him instead under the guise he is trying to help her โ€“ he is, but he is also trying to help himself. Once the ceremony is over, they are back in the Ricci home and Kal is being grilled by Elenaโ€™s younger sisters while Elena is packing to leave. He decides to cut the interrogation short and goes to Elenaโ€™s room, hearing voices inside and he enters the room seeing her mother Carmen but no Elena. Carmen begs him not to take her daughter by trying to use her manipulation tactics on him so give Elena time to flee but Kal simply breaks her hand and finds Elena on the balcony of her room. She resigns herself to her fate and allows him to inject her neck with a substance so she passes out and when she comes around, sheโ€™s on a plane and confused as to why they are there and where they are going. She soon finds herself on Aplana Island off the mainland of Boston which is going to be her new home. The home she finds herself in is a remodelled hotel that is now the home of Dr Kal Anderson and she soon feels like a captive in the marriage and her life, realising she was freed from one prison to another. Luckily, the relationship between Kal and Elena starts to develop more, both are infatuated by each other and the sexual tension and chemistry between both characters is electric and you can feel it as you read through the pages. Whilst on the island, Elena and Kal find out that her parents are pushing the narrative that she was kidnapped by Kal (technically she was but Rafael agreed to it). They feel betrayed by Kal as he wanted to leave the mafia side of things and you donโ€™t simply just get to leave. The marriage to Mateo was going to secure Rafaels future but as the wedding didnโ€™t go ahead he had to pay out a small fortune to the Bollente family to ensure that he and his family remain safe and he blames Kal for this. Carmen on the other hand is just jealous that Kal is with someone else and that someone else happens to be her daughter. As they navigate through their marriage and start to explore the island, Kal is hellbent on trying to get a relationship with his long lost sister and believes if he has a wife and familial unit it will help the relationship and also give him access to his grandfathers trust so he can pay his sister. We meet Violet and sheโ€™s very similar in personality to Kal and while they are talking outside Kalโ€™s bar, he had given Elena strict instructions not to leave and ensured that his staff would keep an eye on her. As she goes to leave, Vinny, a staff member tries to stop Elena and insults and assaults her and she fights back, leaving him a crumpled mess on the floor but not enough to stop him injecting a substance into her leg. Realising people are paid to mind their business Elena leaves and finds sheโ€™s gone out the wrong door. Unsure of her new surroundings and trying to get somewhere safe before the substances takes effect we see Elena stumble across a bus station and she settles on a bench waiting for staff to comeback so she can try and leave the island but she is soon feeling the effects of the substance and when her husband calls her to try and find out where she is, she is barely able to hold the conversation and just as she passes out we hear that strange men are approaching her. Kal finds his wife and sees her bloodied and bruised โ€“ most of which have come from her fight with Vincent and a business card next to her bearing the logo of Ricci Inc. on it. The men were sent by her dad to rough her up to scare Kal and Elena into having Elena returned to Boston. We start to see a caring side of Kal as he helps Elena recover after her ordeal and part of that is allowing her to watch as he makes Vincent pay the ultimate price for his part in hurting Elena. The story moves quickly and the timeline jumps a few weeks and we soon see Elena and Violet meet for the first time, neither one knowing who the other is and Elena feels Kal is being unfaithful so storms into the bar, the first time since her attack and demands to know who the girl is. The rippling tension between Kal and Elena is a constant throughout the story and it just keeps you hooked on finding out if they are both in this for real. We soon see them return to Boston to go to Elenaโ€™s sisters recital, however, when they arrive home, everything crumbles. Carmen drops the bombshell that her and Kal had an affair and makes Elena feel small and ridiculous. Elena flees the dinner and Kal tries to stop her but she still leaves with her sister and he then goes back to confront Carmen where he gives her a few home truths, fires a blank at her to scare her and then he goes after Elena. At the recital, they find they are seated next to her parents box and so Elena still really angry and hurt uses this to have sex with Kal one last time not caring who sees or hears and when they finish their intimacy she excuses herself and leaves. She runs out of the theatre and goes to a secure apartment her parents know nothing about. She stays there a few weeks and goes home to pack some of her things as she wants to be away from her parents and while sheโ€™s packing she finds her mum in her room and she gives her a few home truths and seals it with a punch. As she leaves, she drops a bombshell of her own as she sends an email containing all of the details of the illicit activity her parents have been involved in throughout the years to the police, knowing that being a rat is the very worst thing you can do. During their time apart, Kal has decided to dissolve the trust and to stop trying to pay his sister and used the money to buy his way out of Rafaelโ€™s grip and ensure no fallback can come his way should anything ever happen to Ricci Inc. He also decides to give Elena a true choice by giving her the space she needed to process things and drew up annulment papers citing fraud as the reason for the annulment. This is what brings Elena back to him, she is angry he served her annulment papers, knowing he knew where she was the whole time and didnโ€™t look for her. They then confirm that they are in love with each other and when she tells him what she did to her family and realises that Kal was just a pawn and groomed by her parents she forgives him and they decide that there will be no annulment. Kal also then finds out who was sending him the grainy images of him and Elena and it was none other than 18 year old Riley Kelly who needs to disappear and needs Kalโ€™s help โ€“ we find out more about her and her story in the next instalment โ€“ Vipers & Virtuosos. All in all this book was a great read from start to finish and the character development for both Kal and Elena is fitting and they are perfectly suited. There is a lot of love and passion between the two and it just explodes through the pages and it is a really good page turner. I struggled to put this book down and I am excited to see where the series takes me. I liked the fact that it is loosely based on the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone and they are referenced throughout the book. As always, with a dark romance, always check the trigger warnings/content warnings on the authors website before reading but if you like a good dark mafia romance with a morally grey MMC and a feisty and strong willed FMC then this is the book for you
