This is a STANDALONE dark(ish) erotic romance with insta-obsession between two damaged soulmates(no cheating-HEA-no cliffhanger)
All my life, I’ve only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I’ve tried to please them. I’m starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I’ve scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention—and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they’re probably illegal. I can only pray I don’t scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am.
There are very few people in this world I’ve ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn’t know it but I’ve been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there’s no way she’ll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust…a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah’s absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn’t hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don’t feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She’s mine, only mine, and I’m keeping her forever.
Warning: This story features a rough and demanding Dom who’s completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery.
I am not going to tell you what this book is about or describe scenes. I am going to tell you how I experienced this book.
What can I say I loved this book in all its depraved wickedness! It was so good it had me glued to the pages. I flew through this book and loved every minute of it. I laughed when I read through the authors warning in the beginning of the book describing what the books contents was, because all I could think of was oh baby this is going to be good! It certainly didn’t disappoint! It was funny, extremely sexy, brutal, obsessive, heart breaking, and a fabulous unconventional love story.
Does it have a controversial and taboo story line, you bet. Do I care. Nope! Not one bit! I loved the story from beginning to end. Are there parts that I cringed and thought, well maybe that wasn’t such a good idea? Sure! But do I care? Nope! I took this book as it is with its warts and all! Not all books are for all readers. We all have our own particular likes and dislikes. As I have stated in a lot of my reviews, we all read the same books differently. We see the characters differently. We like a writer’s particular style or not. Did I like this book? I loved it. It was filled with an obsessive type of love that only a person needing that type of love could thrive. You felt in your soul what the characters craved and what they were feeling. I cried! My heart broke a few times. There are a lot of feels to this book and you ride the roller coaster train and hang on and hope your heart survives.
The story had twists and turns that the heroine didn’t see coming and it broke my heart all over again. It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. I laughed out loud at her friend’s antics and I pray that there are going to be books about the secondary characters because they are all fascinating, and the way she weaved them into the story they just need their own stories. Leo and Hannah, amazing characters, well developed. Great story line. It hit it on all notes for me.
I highly recommend this book. Read the warning labels and if you can get past that and go in with an open mind and an open heart, you will love it as much as I did.
Dirty but good
Dirty, dark and left me wanting to read more of the characters in hopefully in a series. Characters well developed and for the kinky in all of us it was hot!
Omg LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS BOOK. I really hope we get to see what happens to the rest of the cartel and to Joy. This books was hard to put down I was hockey right from the start!
