WHEN HATE BECOMES OBSESSION…
Mistaken for her beautiful half-sister, Ellen Winthorp is taken captive by a madman who declares that she will be his “fifteen”: the fifteenth victim of a vicious blood feud. Armed with only her instincts, Ellen must resist her captor for as long as she can—which is easier said than done the more she’s exposed to the complex man beneath the beast. Because Mischa Stepanov isn’t a mindless monster—he’s a wolf, and she’s the unwitting doe caught in his midst.
Unraveling the torment of his past may be her only hope of salvation…
Or the secrets uncovered may destroy them both.

And indeed this one isn’t for the faint of heart, that is for sure. The writing was excellent. The pace perfect. The plot incredibly engaging. Dark. Twisted. Uncomfortable. The sex was rough and forced. No OW or OM drama, although the heroine is (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) married A small cast of interesting secondary characters with secrets of their own. This hero wasn’t in the least bit likable. A true anti-hero. He physically hurts the heroine. He has a temper. He is nasty. But f-cking hell is he intriguing. The heroine…well I am not yet sure. Is she weak? Is she broken? Is she batshit crazy? I guess time will tell. Last, it all wraps up in a crazy as f-ck cliffhanger that makes me wish I had book two right now!I loved this one from beginning to the end. Fingers crossed book two continues the greatness.
