As soon as I read the synopsis for this book, I knew I HAD to read it! A woman who is the one that does the kidnapping, breaking down and delivering of a s** slave??
SOLD! And as I expected, this author did not disappoint.
Now, I will start out by saying that this is not as dark as Beneath the Burn. Definitely not a light and fluffy love story but also not the darkest thing I have read. I honestly think it is the perfect book for those who have wanted to take a walk on the "dark" side but have been scared to for one reason or another. It is the perfect introduction to this genre (IMO at least).
I loved getting dual POV's (Liv and Josh). It really helped to see things from both perspectives, especially Josh's. Hearing his thoughts when he realizes what is happening to him was heartbreaking. And his belief that he could somehow change Liv was touching, if not shocking. This chick just kidnapped him and yet he wants to see the good in her and help her. But as the story progresses, you learn there is more to Liv than we originally thought, which adds a nice twist or two to the storyline.
The pace of the story is perfect. I was glued to my iPad from page one and could not stop reading until the last page. It does not end on a cliffhanger, but there are a few things left unresolved at the end. I had to know if there would be another book, which I am happy to report there will be, (YAY!!)
A 5+++ star read for me!
Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
