Grey -- Desperate times call for desperate measures, otherwise I’d never have signed a contract with Knox’s Pleasure Emporium. Selling myself for a few hours once is far better than my other option -- letting my mother’s loan shark use me however he sees fit in order to recoup his money. I can’t even be angry with Mom since she’s no longer with us. She did what she’d thought was best at the time, but now I’m paying the price.
I didn’t count on a biker changing my life forever. Not only did we have a slight miscommunication that ended up leaving me with an eighteen-year commitment, but he’s my only hope of escaping my son’s father. Why do I keep getting tangled up with bad boys? It never ends well for me.
Samurai -- I can admit my past has left me screwed up. I’d never thought I’d pay to be with a woman, but not just anyone can handle my needs. The little goddess I purchased isn’t anything like I expected. The way she gives into me so sweetly, and comes apart in my arms, makes it damn hard to forget her when our time is over. I didn’t realize I’d be seeing her again, under less than favorable circumstances.
She needs my protection. What do I do? Act like a bastard and call her names. Not my finest moment. Now I need to fix things before my cousin, Phantom, decides to step in and claim her for himself. I might have some issues to work through, but Grey is mine, and no one is taking her from me. Not Phantom, and not the man threatening Grey and her son. Because once I’m in, I’m all in. I’ll kill anyone who tries to take her from me. I promised Grey I wouldn’t get sent to prison. I didn’t promise to be good. I just won’t get caught.
I loved this book. I was once told control is an illusion. In the case of Samurai it’s a necessity. When he meets Grey she allows him that control. There are many things at play in this book some are answered. When Grey arrives at the Devil's Boneyard Compound looking for Samurai’s help as expected he acts like a total douche canoe! Thankfully Clarity happens to arrive as Grey is leaving and takes her home with her. Between Clarity & Phantom they get Samurai to pull it together to man up for Grey & Ryo & face her troubles head on. Let’s just say for one man Karma really does come around!
Cinder needs to seriously put a beat down on Charming! That man is seriously starting to piss me off!
