I don’t know what I was thinking when I hired someone to attack me. Maybe I was bored, or lonely, or there was a void so deep inside of me that I needed something explosive to fill it.
It was supposed to be safe. A thrill. A way to break through the monotony of everyday life. It was an illusion of danger that I could walk away from as soon as it was over.
Except that it wasn’t. Because I had been in danger long before I ever invited it into my life.
My mission is almost complete. The bubbling boil of vengeance that heats my blood might finally simmer.
She is the last piece of the puzzle. Once I destroy her, everyone who ever hurt me will have paid their debt.
It was supposed to be quick and easy, but as soon as I met her it got complicated.
RELEASE DAY IS TOMORROW, DECEMBER 2ND
So. Yeah. Nina has totally surprised me with this book. It reminded me a little of Raw by Belle Aurora. It was the dark, mind twisted, there's gotta be some good in this guy, did he really just do that, love to hate the extreme bad boy type of read. And .... I freaking devoured it.
My sole complaint is ,... I would've liked more at the ending. Way to make me write my own ever after Nina. Can't you give me more? Let me love them a little more!!! I'm not ashamed to BEG...
Nina has delivered the extreme had boy that we really should hate for all of the things he does to Mia. But yet the reasoning behind what he's done, when you get the full story from the flashback, it's heartbreaking and you find yourself empathizing and validating why he's done what he's done and who he's done it for. But when the truth comes out, when you hear Mia's story, you want it to be the end all, the redeeming factor for him. But can it stop Jude? Can she see reality? or has it gone past the point of being stopped? And you start to really feel for Tax- who's completely honest about how bad of a person he is. You feel horrible for the decisions he's facing. Knowing the horrible things he's done, you still love the man he's become. Well I hope you will, 'cause I know I did. I totally looked past all the stuff he's done and fell in love with this character. He could do no wrong in my eyes.
Nina has delivered us a story that had the worst of the worst but who's someone who's had a huge amount of growth throughout this story. The truths he realizes about himself, Mia and Jude are huge. And how he handles them shows even more so how much he grew throughout the story. Not only are the characters great. Not only is it a dark, twisty, erotic read. But the plot line flows very well. Everything about it makes sense and pulls you in from start to finish.
I can't absolutely loved this book. I had one small simple complaint, what can I say I like more. Other than that, this was a fantastic dark read. I give this 4.5 stars
