I was raised by the Devil himself.
Formed into a man that was unreachable.
I went from the boy with bruises
to the man with a trigger.
Killing is the only thing the calms the itch.
The demons inside were a constant battle.
…until she changed everything.
When you spend most of your time
in the dark, is it smart to step into the light?
“Too strong to run, too proud to hide, for this I’ll pay, for this I’ll die.”

I don’t even know where to begin with this one. I mean the book started out with eye torture. Anything to do with eyes freaks me out so from the outset I was queasy. Luckily for me, we move on from the eyes to a more acceptable form of torture that I apparently have no issue with. So it was all good from there…I LOVED every minute of this one (well apart from the aforementioned eye stuff *shiver*) It was fantastically well written. The plot was intricate, and the pace was fast moving. There was angst. There was drama. If you have an issue with OW scenes or drama, then this probably isn’t for you. It was gritty. It was violent. It was stomach turning. It had smokin’ sex scenes. It had a plethora of interesting secondary characters that I hope get books of their own.
It had two VERY likable and well developed main characters. Trigger was excellent. He fights the way he wants. He fucks the way he wants. He kills the way he wants. He doesn’t care about much except his club and Tess. Tess…what can I say. I ADORED her. One of the best heroines I have read in ages. She wasn’t some simpering idiot that couldn’t control herself around Trigger. She didn’t yearn for a happily ever after with him. She didn’t want to change him or tie him down. She was feisty and strong and spoke her mind. She has demons and HUGE ones at that. We don’t find out what they are in this book and I cannot wait until it all comes out in the next book (I assume).
Of course, we end it with the mother of all cliffhangers. I am salivating to get my hands on the next book. Two HUGE thumbs up from yours truly.
