~SYNOPSIS~
Six years they stole from me.
Six years I’ve done my time.
Six years I’ve waited.
Six years I’ve heard her screams over and over.
No more.
It’s time to collect.
And it’s their blood that will be spilled.
Asher Savage spent his life protecting the innocent, taking monsters off the streets. He never thought he’d become one.
Charlee Vega was a pawn in a game she never knew she was playing. An innocent caught up in a war of greed and hate.
Revenge has fed his monster for years, but it comes at a price. Is it one he’s still willing to have her pay?
She’s a means to an end. A complication he never saw coming. And sometimes those are the most deadly of all.
***This book is a stand alone and contains mature/graphic subject matter. For readers 18+***

 

 

 

~MEET THE AUTHOR~
Christine Besze is a writer, reader, mother, wife, and lover of all things wine. She lives in her own world of crazy most days, because the voices inside her head hold some great conversation. When she does have to come back to reality and act like an actual grown-up, she spends her time with her handsome hubby Z, their two gorgeous gingers and their mini-herd of German Shepherds. Born in sunny Southern California, she recently made the big leap with her family to the East Coast and couldn’t be happier. You’ll still find her in flip-flops–with a full glass of wine–all year round.

descriptiondescriptionThis is legit the third book I have read in a row that has the hero using the heroine to get back at her father. I think that means this is officially an overused trope. (lol) But hey, no revenge porn in this one, so thank god for that…
descriptionChristine Besze is a new (to me) author, and I found her writing to be enjoyable. This book was relatively short (@ two hours) so it moved along at a good clip. The plot itself was engaging (if maybe a little underdeveloped and not terribly original). I also wasn’t a fan of the dead wife and unborn child (not a spoiler as you find that out at the very beginning of the book) being the sole reason for the revenge. I am not usually bothered by dead exes, but when the entire premise of a book is based on the hero’s grieving and anger over their deaths, it makes it hard not to feel like the heroine is second best. 
descriptionBoth the main characters were likable (mostly). Asher (not a manwhore) was a huge asshole for the first half of this book. Or maybe I am just burnt out on the whole “hero treats the heroine like sh!t because of something a family member did” scenario. (lol) He got better later on in the book, so at least there was that. Charlee (not a virgin…I gave this one an extra half star just for that! *lol*) was a likable heroine. She put up a good fight. Stood up to Asher and his brothers. I liked her. Speaking of Asher’s brother’s…I loved both of them and hope they get books of their own. There was no OW or OM drama, and the book wrapped up in a satisfying (if a little rushed) happily ever afterSo yea, a little of a mixed bag, but overall this was an enjoyable read.
