A three-letter word made me a murderess at the age of eight years. But having experienced the curses of that word, I was done with men as I grew up. All men. Except to outplay them in the New York financial arena. Then Crowned Sex enthroned in gorgeous velvet charm and lustful gallantry storms into my life. Spewing volcanic lava on my monumental arctic ice block. With the unapologetic fierceness of a savage god. Wearing crackling thunderbolts straight from the god Zeus. Explosive has nothing on it.
Adrian isn't hot, he's fucking hellish. He embarks on melting my ice block at the speed of lightning. But I was done with men. I was done with sex. For ever. I. Was.
I scented her darkness from the moment I was told about her. The sight of her sealed my decision. She was the woman created for my own darkness. I set off to protect her even from herself. Protect her to claim.
Fuse her darkness with my own. For. Myself. I'd fended women off me with bazookas when I was done but they weren't. I wasn't prepared for the battle I soon fought. Not only with her but also with her family. And New York's billionaire gangsters who own entourages of corrupt cops and politicians. With every battle I won, she started new darker wars around me. You ate or you were eaten. Not even starving was an option.
NOTE: Although the blurb is in the first person, the story of Leo and Adrian is written in the third person. This story contains adult material including explicit sex and violence. You've been warned.


“If you feel I should stop, say you’re mine.”
“I am, I am! Just don’t stop, Adrian.”
He stopped, chortling deep in his chest, eyeing her from under his brows as his head lifted with her jerky thrusts. Adrian’s molten lava eyes radiated something utterly demonic but captivating, hypnotizing. They now seemed to shoot her senses with the wickedness every single cell in her craved. Those eyes concentrated on her flawed body, her utterly broken soul, crushing the fierce pride she falsely nurtured for her protection.
He made her feel invincible. Armored, even against his demonic wickedness.
He licked behind her ear, whispered, “Stop being your worst enemy, wildcat, and simply receive and revel in pleasure. Your whole body’s made to receive it. From me.”



Into the joy and happiness of the holidays comes this dark and suspenseful tale of two people bruised by their pasts who find themselves connecting in a combustible journey to HFN.  With this being a series starter, the author has a lot to present in laying the groundwork for what's to come here and in the future.  With each turn of the page readers are shown the darkness and pain these two endured to get where they are, shown the depravity of those meant to protect, and it makes for a difficult read at times.  After witnessing those childhood scenes, readers are introduced to adults who grew stronger because of their painful pasts.  They didn't let the pain and heartbreak define them but forged a path to fortune and success.  With Leo, she's worked hard to get where she is, and has no intention of losing everything.  She's sworn off men, but when Adrian enters the picture she's completely thrown for a loop.  She and Adrian had a crackling connection from the very start!  They had a connection teeming with erotic foreplay, a strong push/pull where each tried to outdo the other, in a journey that kept me on the edge of my seat.  While keeping my attention I found the connection between them wasn’t as heartfelt as I’d hoped, but with their pasts it’s no surprise that they still have trouble truly bonding in a mature and meaningful way.  With them, it felt like a constant battle.  Along with Adrian coming into her life, Leo has a face from the past who's returned to wreak havoc once again on her life in numerous suspenseful twists and turns.

There are a number of triggers along the way, moments between Leo and Adrian as well as the return of a villain from her childhood who's determined to wreck the person she's become, to make this an emotionally intense tale.  So let that be your warning!  For those drawn to dark reads, those that want a unique tale with erotically-charged scenes between two people leery of showing their softer sides, then pick this one up and give it a go!

My rating for this is a C+
