Blood to dust – L.J. Shen

Once upon a time I was a naive girl…but now? Now I’m a ruthless woman.

His name is Beat, and I should hate him.

Bound, blindfolded and bruised, I’m tied in his basement, waiting for the men who stripped me from clothes and humanity to collect his debt to them. Me.

His name is Nate and I should hate him, but I don’t.

I’m not supposed to know his real name, even worse, I’m not supposed to care. He is nothing to me but means to an end. The plan is simple: break free, collect the pieces of my broken soul, kill the bastards and run away.

His name is Nathaniel Thomas Vela, and I’ve never seen his face, though I hear that it’s beautiful.

Behind the rugged and handsome exterior, there’s a quiet murderer, a killer who thinks guns are for pussies and ends people with his bare hands.

His name doesn’t matter, neither does his face, but what does matter is my heart. And right now, sadly, it’s his.

I found the plot so intriguing and fascinating and it keeps you on edge the whole time, it is different from any other book i have read before.
Nate’s diaries really gave us an insight to the man he really was inside, that along with the stories that Pea told him through the wall on a night really made them click as a couple. There pasts being told in such a way helped me connect with the characters and made me see more than just the crazy revenge filled people i saw at the begining of the book.
This book nearly drove me crazy with the need to find out all Pea and Nate’s secrets.
I adored the ending of this book it really finished this crazy ride we took with the characters.
