My name is Cassidy Porter…
My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.
Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware – every day of my life – that I am his child, his only son.
To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.
I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.
It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life.
Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain…

I enjoyed this one. It didn’t exactly turn out to be what I thought it was going to be based on the blurb (a dark romance) but it was still an excellent read. The writing was fantastic. The pace was good. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. It was a slow burn and only had one mild sex scene that takes place after 70%. This one is light on secondary characters but the ones we get add some good extra layers to the story. It made me tear up a few times, and I liked the twist. I can usually Sherlock a twist coming a mile away, but this one took me by surprise. Although if I am 100% honest I also found it a bit farfetched, but OK I went with it.
Both main characters were very likable. I ADORED Cassidy. He was just so sweet and endearing. I usually HATE virgin heroes in books because nine times out of ten they are entirely unbelievable. That said, this fell into one of the very few times a hero being a virgin made sense. I adored Brynn as well. The beginning of this book had me in tears. More so today when yet again lives have been lost in a senseless mass shooting. My heart broke for her, but I also loved how accepting she was to opening her heart once again. And I loved how she never gave up on Cassidy. Saving him as he had saved her. Lastly, this was wrapped up in a lovely epilogue.
So even though this may have turned out not to be a romance with any darkness to it I can still honestly say that it is a romance worth reading and gets two thumbs up from yours truly.
