My Rating: 4 stars
Lines get blurred. Loyalties get tested. Love and chaos will clash.
HE WAS HER KNIGHT IN BLACK LEATHER. SHE WAS HIS CHANCE AT REDEMPTION. TOGETHER THEY WERE GUNPOWDER AND FLAMES, READY TO TORCH ANYONE AND ANYTHING THAT STOOD IN THEIR WAY.
COSMO WAS MORE THAN MET THE EYE…To those who didn’t know him he looked like a rich playboy with too much time on his hands. However, to his brothers, he’s the guy they called when they needed a private jet, or someone to back them up, no questions asked. Now it’s his turn for some no questions asked backup.
DAITAI TRADED ONE HELL FOR ANOTHER…She had thought a savior had come at the last hour, offering her a lifeline when she knew her there was no other way out. Only the reality of her situation went from totally screwed, to royally f**ked in the blink of an eye with an entire ocean between everything and everyone she knew.
WHEN YOUR WORLD SHATTERS…Cosmo knew his brothers thought he was a playboy with too much money, yet they accepted him. His club president had given him a lot of leeway when it came to the Royal Bastards until he brought a load of trouble to their doorstep. The choice between the woman who sets his blood on fire or walking away from the only real brotherhood was easy. Blood didn’t make you family. He had to show his MC where his loyalty lay and keep the woman he planned to claim as his.
They were supposed to be untouchable. Their club is unbreakable. But there’s more than one faction searching for the woman Cosmo’s claimed. He’s willing to risk it all to keep her safe, even when the stakes are high, the game is deadly and at the end some could be left F**ked or worse. COSMO has always had a feeling when he fell, he’d be an all or nothing man. DAITAI hadn’t known she could feel for a man the way she does Cosmo. The term ride or die became her motto, and she was willing to risk it all, even her life to be with him.
This book is not for the faint of heart. Dealing with dark subject matter it is a gripping portrayal of two damaged souls finding light in the darkness. This book deals with all forms of sexual abuse, child abuse, human trafficking, and forced sex work not to mention heavy violence.
This book shows how people can still have a capacity for love after suffering extreme abuse particularly after being betrayed by the people who should have protected them. This book delves into a world we know exists but prefer not to think about. I felt sick at times reading this, not because it was disgusting but at the powerful descriptions, they are meant to horrify. There is no sugar coating in this book. It is raw and in your face and this is exactly how it should be.
If dark themes are not for you then avoid this book, but if your looking for something thought provoking, emotive and gripping then this is a book for you. I couldn’t put it down.
