  1. Angela N says:

    I didn’t particularly like the violence; however the love story put me away. It stirred feelings in me I haven’t felt in a long time.

  2. I thought it was going to be just another martial arts action novel, but it surprised me. Great story.

  3. Marcy Donaldson says:

    Martial arts superman treks to the jungles of Columbia to save the woman he loves. Very Romantic. Wow!

  4. Mark Denton says:

    It’s begging to be made into a movie. Enjoyed it immensely.

  5. Anthony Rivera says:

    The confrontation in the jungle is unforgettable. It was a modern version of me Tarzan, you Jane. I loved it.


  1. Kidra Patel says:

    Very impressed with the way Bitetti handles the head-over-heels romance between Mario and Julia. He keeps up the suspense till the end. Julie is my hero. She never gives in to her kidnappers.

  2. Eve Ballon says:

    My husband bought me the audio to listen to while he’s away. What a wonderful gift. I really enjoyed it!

  3. Ben Medina says:

    I very much enjoyed reading this action/thriller. It pits a love crazy ex-ranger against the greedy, corrupt drug lords. What a trip!

  4. Herman Benke says:

    Action, suspense, drama – it’s got it all. It gives you a glimpse of how the drug lords operate. Most of all I enjoyed the fight scenes.

  5. David Del Vecchio says:

    This is my kind of novel. It has it all. I only wish it was longer. I hope Bitetti writes a sequel.

  6. Austin Bravo says:

    Loved the action scenes. Mario’s a killing machine who destroys everyone in his way to get to the woman he loves. He’s like GI Joe on steroids. He’s my kind of guy!

  7. Melinda Rushton says:

    Sworn to Secrecy tells the story behind all the nonsense that goes along with the fraternity crowd. I experienced it first hand. My old boyfriend was one of them. Very revealing.

  8. Maria Sorensen says:

    Bought the audio, and I’m glad I did. It made me feel like I was right there watching the action from a few feet away. And let me tell you, Mario is unstoppable. He’s like a one man wrecking ball, knocking down anybody in his path on the way to rescuing the woman he loves. Tom is adorable, a bit helpless and clumsy at times, but a heartbreaker just the same. Take my word, you’ll Love it.

  9. Grace Redman says:

    Sometimes, I thought I was reading Man Of La Mancha. Mario tilts at windmills, and Tom, his loyal sidekick, follows him into the jungles of Colombia on an impossible mission to save Julia, Mario’s love interest. It’s meant for the big screen. The characters are larger than life. It was a pleasure to read. Don’t miss this one!

  10. Candice D says:

    Wow, what action. I jumped into the story at the first chapter. It’s a roller coaster ride. The three main characters are memorable. Mario is Mr. Macho, with Tom as his crazy sidekick. Lastly, Julia is a combination of a damsel in distress and superwoman. The fight scenes made Mario my hero. Great book, thanks Bitetti.

  11. Arnold Anderoff says:

    I was an Army Ranger. And I can tell you from experience Mario’s mindset is a very realistic portrayal of the military mentality. He is a trained assassin, with no regard for his foe other than to kill them before they kill him. What makes him such a powder-keg is that he’s madly in love, and will do whatever it takes to redeem the woman he loves from the clutches of her kidnappers. It’s well worth the money.

  12. Janet Picotin says:

    I doubt many readers will agree with me, but Tom was my favorite character, sweet and sincere, he had to fight his inner demons to finally find love in a most unusual place. Though I must admit the romance between Mario and Julia made me jealous. If it’s the last thing I do, I intend to persuade my boyfriend read this novel.

  13. Chad F Patterson says:

    This story made me want to jump in my car and head for South Beach, leaving NY in my rearview mirror. It’s South Florida at its best and worst. There’s hell to pay when members of a Colombian drug cartel infiltrate a university fraternity and kidnap a cute coed who’s the girlfriend of an ex-army ranger. It all comes to an unforgettable conclusion in the jungles of Columbia. I don’t want to reveal how it ends. You should read it for yourself. It would make one heck of an action movie. I’m going to email it to my brother as a birthday present. He loved all the Rocky films.

  14. Alfie Adams says:

    Sworn to Secrecy is a powerful story of an ex-Army Ranger, and his childhood buddy, who bravely fight insurmountable odds to rescue the love of his life from kidnappers in the Jungles of Columbia. It brought back memories of my covert missions when I served in special opts for the DEA. It’s realistic and in some cases very graphic, which makes it that much more believable.
