Scarred and broken, I emerged from the flames.
Now I’ve returned to take what’s mine.
The first item on my agenda?
Make Ivy Moreno my wife.
Bend her until she breaks.
Captivating and gripping
I have read few books by Natasha Knight but this was first time I’ve read A Zavarelli or collaboration between these two authors. This was hand down a well written and I devoured this book. I literally binge read this book and now I am anxiously waiting for the second book. This is a dark romance like no other . Its one of the best beauty n beast theme story I have read n It was such an addictive read. It was dark , gritty and all consuming. The story blew my mind and the characters were well sketched and quite complex. Can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
Deliciously dark & sexy!
Dark and sinister! A secret society, extreme wealth, deadly enemies and deadlier power struggles. That's the setup for this dark romance with delicious characters. The Phantom of the Opera-esque Santiago and the taken bride Ivy. She's a pawn in a deadly game of revenge but who's the real culprit to Santiago's pain and turmoil? Santi thinks it's her father but that appears to be false. He's a scarred devil that's out to seek revenge on the innocent Ivy when he takes her as his wife. I hate this society that treats women like possessions with no rights. I like Ivy as she stiffens her spine and stands strong for the most part. But she has a soft spot for her husband and it's between her legs. Yup, he's brutal and broken but he's a sexy beast with a tenderness for his wife at times. It's all plots and villains and surprise twists especially that OMG ending that leaves our couple in peril and so many awful characters as the responsible party to the mayhem that ensues. What a cliffhanger! I can't wait for more of this couple and the underhandedness of this archaic society. Deliciously dark!
Love this story! I cannot wait for the 2nd installment!
A must read❤️
