Pretty things aren’t meant to be broken.
But I broke her, and now we both have to pay the price.
I’m her nightmare.
I’m her savior.
And now that I have her signature on an ironclad contract, I own her body and soul.
She doesn’t remember me.
She will.
It’s inevitable.
Because as much as I know I need to stay away, for fear of unlocking the memories I helped her father bury–I can’t.
She was the apple in the Garden, dangled in front of me, her core so tempting and sweet. A voice whispered. Just. One. Bite.
I bit.
I tasted.
I fell.
Welcome to the world of the Russian mafia, where death, is your only future.

My Review

I do feel like a need a bit a therapy after reading this – what a tortured pair of lovers.

This was a great twisted tale and one of the best parts was we had both characters talking us through their tale of love, despair, secrets and heartache.

Nikolai carried such secrets and burdens and we were given clues and snippets all the way through to the last few chapters – I was glued to the pages trying to keep up – great story telling by the author.

Maya, what a beautiful girl and so strong considering who her family was and the lies and betrayals you uncover as she does.

We get to meet a whole group of can I say really hot Italians and now I find out they have their own series and I am dying to find out how the women in their lives tame them.

Nikolai and Maya – their connection makes sense as you travel through the pages and with them on their journey in finding light amongst the darkness of their lives.
