My husband traded me away to save his own life…
And now I belong to the devil.
One night and everything in my life changed. Two words and my world turned dark.
Owing the most ruthless crime lord in Garden City five million dollars, my husband chose to trade me and my children away to save himself.
I was on the cusp of freedom, so close to divorcing that scumbag I was married to.
Now I’m enslaved to a man who is obsessed with me. A man so wicked and beautiful, they call him Lucifer.
So alluring, he makes the angels weep with envy. He’s so powerful, I can’t stop myself from bending to his will.
He’s determined to master me, and he won’t rest until I give him all.
He wants my light, and he wants my dark.
He wants my body, and he wants my heart.
But most of all, he wants the one thing I can’t give him. The one thing I can’t bear to part with…Insert
Keeping Lily delivered some great romance moments but at times I did struggle with some of the connection between Lucifer and Lily as it felt really rushed but the sex scenes were enjoyable. Lily has a strong need to feel protected based on her background story so you can overlook her rapid need for Luifer and his magic touch but other times not so much.
Lily’s children are an interesting side story and Lucifer’s interaction with them did soften my perception of him and it made me forgive him for his other brute actions.
My main complaint with this story is that towards the last few chapters I actually stopped and I did a kindle search as I was reading this at 10pm at night and all of a sudden a major story line was thrown in and I was like – Back the freakin truck up – did I miss a chapter? When did that happen? How did they not talk about this? Was it mentioned and I missed it when Lily was out shopping? Then BOOM we are at the Epilogue a few months later – I kind of thought I missed a moment in the relationship!! I actually searched twice as it has done my head in and I feel like I missed a major moment in their emotional and physical relationship which could have helped me connect to them in a more romantic way.
There is also a fair bit of violence and lots of names thrown around with different gangs mentioned which must lead into the next book.
The Disciples series I believe has that something, it is dark and a little bit dirty. I have already bought a copy of Stealing Amy (Disciples #2) which I am looking forward to reading.
Quote: Even through the blur of my tears, he’s beautiful A beautiful monster. But he’s my monster. And despite everything … I love him
