They say love conquers all.

It’s a lie.

Five days a week, I dressed in smart business clothes. I painted my face, and went to work as an accountant. But nothing about my life was normal.

For eight years I had been the property of the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club. I laundered their money so well they’d never let me leave. My only glimmer of light was the man I loved. The man who had saved me.


His love had been the only thing that kept the demons at bay. But he’d become so immersed in the cartel’s brutal business that I hardly knew him anymore.

Dornan had been my salvation, but he was also my undoing.

Would he pull me down into the darkness until he destroyed me? Could I save him?

Did I even want to?

He’s a bad, bad boy.

I’ve read plenty of books with plenty of sweet, nice heroes. That’s not Dornan. Sweet isn’t in his vocabulary. I was intrigued, irritated and needed to read more.

I started off liking this book. Ms. St Germain has a way with words. I even liked the characters–despite Dornan being…hard to take.

The longer I read, the more my liking wore off. The writing started off well. Like I said, I was intrigued. But I had a very hard time warming up to Mariana. I get that she’s edgy and has been with a motorcycle club for a long, long time, but instead of getting the strong vibe I expected from her, I kept thinking this woman was so broken. Maybe that was the point. Maybe I supposed to see her as messed up and in need of salvation. If that was the case, then it worked.

While this might not have been the best book for me… it was different. There was plenty of action and adventure. The mistrust and code of conduct going on was very intoxicating. I can see where these characters might be fantastic and sexy.

This book might not have been the one highest on my list, this is a hot read. There’s tension, sweaty hot bodies and plenty of dominance. Give it a try. You might find your next sexy read between it’s pages.
