Best of the series
Couldn't put this one down! I love the characters. Not too happy about the Tohr twist though.... Z is my favorite and I LOVED his story! The ending is epic!
Darkest character explained
Zsadist is probably the most twisted of characters. Forced to live as a slave and suffered physical and psychological torcher. A broken man, he tries to save a female. And she tries to save him.
Easy to read. Plot moved. Good book.
I truly loved this book!!
The story of Zsadist is sad, painful, at time hard to read but also relatable. As a sexual abuse survivor, some of the details were hard to read but I also know by experience that yes people are that sick and perverse. Ward, made me relive my own trauma along with Z and we made it through. Is his life perfect, no! Which is what I liked about this book she is raw and unfiltered when describing his self hatred, and after I’m reading the words. I say to myself how sad that a man can feel that low, less than or unworthy of love! But, girl you went through the same struggles and although I’ve healed for the most part, like Zsadist, I have to work at it every day.
