This story was given to me in exchange for an honest review. I saw the previews and thought, sounds interesting, I was hoping that the author could deliver and give me something that I could sink my teeth into. It is a first in the series book and as such its job was to introduce the characters and story line. I think that this story went way beyond what my expectations were. It was almost a complete story in itself.
Mia is the daughter of a well known mafia man whom she purposely keeps her distance from as she does not want to be apart of that world. And then fellow mafia kingpin Shane O’Mara sees her one night and work and is instantly infatuated with her and decides that he needs to have her. His solution is to kidnap her and make her his.
“I have to own you completely to know that you’re mine.”
Now Mia does not bend easily to his will and there are some scenes that are definitely non consensual and contains some scenes with violence. There is rough sex and Mia finds that something inside her is brought to life with his rough treatment; she is made to face her inner most secret darkest desires. She hates him, she hates where she is, and now she hates herself even more.
When you accept the way the storyline is going, and think that you have things figured out then…. Watch out, there will be an ending that you just do not see coming, I was completely shocked and left wanting more, more, more.
This was a new author for me. I am really impressed. I would recommend her story to all dark romance lovers. It does push a few buttons but does not cross the line. I loved it. I can’t wait until the next segment.
