I know I’m twisted. Growing up in a perfectly well-adjusted home, I don’t really have an excuse. But no matter… I realize how messed up I am. And therapy can only do so much.
I pushed my boyfriend to violence, a violence he couldn’t control. Sickly, I almost liked it. So I pushed him more. Before long, the pain outweighed the pleasure and the loss I sustained shattered me. So I ran. I’m now a bit shell-shocked harboring a lot of guilt. My boyfriend is now my ex and wants revenge. He wants me to pay for turning him into the monster he’s become. And I still have a deviant yearning that I don’t understand. My own monster inside… my own demon to battle.
I can’t get close to anyone. I can’t give in and scratch that itch. I can’t wreck someone else.
And now there is Kian… my rescuer on a dark, painful night. He sees through my pretense. He tries to pull me from my frightened isolation, to keep me from becoming a victim. He forces me to face my warped desires and shows me that pain doesn’t really have to truly hurt.
He wants to show me a way to serenity. But I am afraid… Will I ruin a good man?
This book is the total package, hot sexy alpha great characters and a cracking plot. Full of angst and lots of spicy hot sex.
Sybylla gives us a vulnerable character, And Brynn is just that, not every woman is strong, but with Kian’s help Brynn finds her inner strength which is great to read.
This book is a story of recovery, acceptance and love. The story really pulls you in.
Brynn is broken and feels she cannot be fixed, she is happy to stay in the shadows, but with Kian beside her with his protective kinky side he finds all the broken pieces and glues them back together.
“I kept waiting on pins and needles because it all felt too good to last. I waited for Evan to show up. Or Kian to give up.”
Brynn and Kian’s story has it ALL….sadness, happiness, excitement, worries, betrayal and of course LOVE. And is just a awesome read!
