I legit almost lost my lunch a few times while reading this one. This author’s mind is a SCARY fucked up place for sure. That said, I loved every sick and twisted moment of this book. As I mentioned in my review for book one this duet is by far my favorite from this author to date. The writing was fantastic. The pace was perfect. This book was actually a bit longer than what she usually writes. That was a good thing as It allowed the story to be much more fleshed out. The plot was super engaging. It was twisted. It was super dark. It was fucked up. It was gross. It was disgusting. It was gritty. It was bloody. It was sexy. Last, it was all wrapped up in an OK ending. I have a feeling we will be seeing more of this couple so I can’t complain TOO much.
ROMERO…Lord this guy was seriously deranged. A Satanist. A cannibal. A murderer. A rapist. He literally had NO redeeming characteristics. Well, that isn’t exactly true. He loved Calista. She was his “QUEEN.” And this reader loved his character SO much <— don’t judge (lol). His brand of psycho was HOT.
CALISTA…She came a bit more into her own in this one. Her and Rom were perfect for each. Bound together in crazy and covered in blood. She was just as fucked up as Romero was. She was feisty. She was strong. She stood toe to toe with the devil. I loved her.
Again as with book one, we have a rich tapestry of secondary characters in this one. I loved Grim. I loved Arlen <— I can’t wait for their book coming up. I loved Cobra. Each one of them was intriguing and added a lot of depth and background to the story.
Medium. There were some smokin’ hot sex scenes in this one and the frequency fit the story. As with book one, this couple has AMAZING on page chemistry. Cali and Rom are my favorite couple out of all the books I have read by this author (which is all of them I *think*).
Low. Again this one wasn’t angsty in the least for me. This couple is solid all through the book and there was no OW or OM drama.
I LOVED it. This duet is now firmly in first place as my favorite from this author. The writing was great. The plot twisted and dark. The characters well developed and intriguing. Natalie Bennett just keeps getting better and better. If you are a dark book lover than this author is not to be missed. Two HUGE thumbs up from yours truly.
