Review- Two For the Show by Skye Warren

Two For the Show; One For the Money #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Fake Dating/Billionaire Romance

Author: Skye Warren

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Turmoil and emotional upheaval is ripe in the second book of this series. My heart ached for both parties as they struggled with their current fate and it also leapt with joy for those who surround them. Warren truly pulled at my emotions with this latest addition to the Midnight Dynasty series.

In this latest book, Eva Morelli proves over and over again how she is the master of holding the entire Morelli family together. She is calm, cool, and collected in every situation, even when her own life feels like it could collapse at any moment. Upon finding out she is pregnant with Finn Hughes baby, a child he didn’t know about when they parted ways, but one that he was very clear about in never wanting, Eva knows she is keeping the child. Considering Eva has always put her family above her own needs, even above dating, she looks at this child as a blessing and perhaps her one chance to have a family of her own, even if it doesn’t include the father.

Eva’s strength throughout the book is something to behold. Not only is she there for her family, and I LOVE the special moments with her family…they are probably my favorite of any book within the Midnight Dynasty series yet. Eva is strong when she’s with Finn and his family too. She is a woman who could take on the world with poise and grace and I totally adore her character.

Finn on the other hand, is beside himself throughout this entire book. He’s always known about the genetic possibility of falling into his family’s curse and he’s never wanted to pass that along to a child of his own. When he does find out that he’ll be a father, the emotional war upon himself is brutal. In turn he lashes out and isn’t the fun loving man we’ve come to know. He’s sinking and his normal ways of coping aren’t there because he’s done the one thing he also never thought he’d do…fall in love.

Two For the Show is brutally emotional and raw, but also full with some beautiful family moments. There is still more to come as this book ends on a cliffhanger. I can hardly wait to see what happens next.

Synopsis:

Review – Force of Nature by Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde

Force of Nature; Deserted Island #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: September 6, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Suspense/MFM & MMF Romance

Author: Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The first part of this book contains the prequel, The Crash, so if you missed it, don’t worry, but if you’ve already read it you can jump right into the action and begin reading Force of Nature.

Never once does this book let off the gas. Carter and June are fighting to stay alive throughout the entire story and that fight is not only from human targets, but from the jungle itself. Carter Morelli may be a genius professor in biology, but there is vegetation even he is not aware of and just like people, not all plants are good.

While the mystery man of the island is introduced, he is still a bit of a mystery and we are left on an intense cliffhanger, so I do not want to give away anything that could be misleading.

Jane Porter is sweet, but has a tougher background than she initially portrays. Her fighting spirit is going to go far in this unforgiving environment.

Carter Morelli is so different than he’s come across in other Midnight Dynasty books, but that is also the cover he likes to portray. I, for one, love the intrigue of his background and the intensity he brings.

Force of Nature is fast, intense, and still insanely hot. There is so much more story to tell for each of these characters and I am so here for it. I can hardly wait for the next part of this series.

Synopsis:

Excerpt:

“I can’t lose you like that again, wife.”

The admission leaves me feeling vulnerable and I swallow down the rest of the words I want to say to her.

Like how much she means to me. More than anyone else in the world.

We’re quiet, the only sound is the sloshing water as our bodies move and shift. I’m getting hotter thanks to the steam wafting upwards from the water and I rest my cheek against her soft hair, closing my eyes.

“Why?”

Her softly spoken question has my eyes cracking open. “Why what?”

“Why can’t you lose me?”

Carefully I lift my head away from her and run my fingers through her hair, letting the strands fall onto her shoulders, the ends trailing in the warm water. “It killed me, knowing you were with him.”

“Why?”

Damn it, she’s going to make me say it, isn’t she?

“Because I care about you, Charlotte.”

She faces straight ahead, her back still to me, bending her knees and wrapping her arms around them. “Nothing about our relationship is normal, Perry. There is no reason for you to care about me or worry when I’ve been abducted by my former—lover.”

I slip my arms around her waist and pull her into me, the water splashing, my mouth at her ear when I murmur, “Don’t call him that.”

“It’s true. Calling him my ex-boyfriend sounds so… wrong. We weren’t ever together, not like that.”

I cup her breasts, running my thumbs over her hardening nipples. “I thought for a while maybe you went with him—willingly.”

She slowly shakes her head. “I would never do that.”

I’m quiet for a moment, considering what she said—and how quickly she said it. “Why?”

“Because I said vows to you and promised to be a faithful wife. I’m a lot of things, but I’m not a liar, Perry. We’re married. I won’t leave you for someone else. I—I care about you, too.” She hesitates and I swear I can feel her sadness. “I hate that he had me first.”

“But I’ll keep you forever.” The words fall from my mouth without thought and for a split second, I regret them.

Then again, I don’t. I mean what I say. I will keep her forever. That asshole can’t have her back, despite his trying. He’ll never try again. I won’t give him the chance.

I’ll chop off his hands and his dick if I have to.

“You don’t mean it,” Charlotte says, her voice so soft, I almost don’t hear her. “You’ll get tired of me, just like everyone else.”

My wife is having a serious pity party tonight but I can’t blame her. She’s been through some shit. Shit I should’ve protected her from. I failed her. I fucked up.

And that kills me.

“I won’t get tired of you.” I nuzzle the side of her head, my mouth at her ear. “Who else tolerates the Chevelle like you do?”

I run my lips down the length of her neck, noting the hitch in her breath when I hit a particular spot. The way she melts against me, tilting her head to the side to give me better access.

“How many girls have you fucked in the Chevelle?” she asks out of nowhere.

Everything within me stills, my mouth still pressed upon her skin. Slowly, carefully, I push her hair out of the way, pressing my forehead against the back of her head and taking a deep breath. “You really want to know?”

Her body stiffens and she leans her head down, as if she’s trying to get away from me. “Maybe?”

I rub her nipple with my thumb, wishing I could put my mouth on her. Taste her warm, wet skin. “The answer might blow your mind.”

She nudges against me, as if she’s trying to buck me off of her. “You’re rude.”

I clamp my arms around her middle so she can’t slip away from me. “It’s zero, Charlotte. I haven’t fucked anyone else in the Chevelle. Until you.”

My wife freezes, turning her head so she can meet my gaze. “You’re serious?”

“Why would I lie to you?” I drop a kiss on her lips, not wanting to push. She responds, leaning into me and I break away first, trying to keep my head. “There’s something here. Between us. You feel it too.”

Charlotte blinks at my honest response. “Do you want to know what I thought about when I was tied up in that room?”

My skin feels like it could burst into flames at her mentioning being tied up. Alone in an empty room, waiting for that McFuckface to come back and do whatever he wanted to her. She must’ve been so damn scared. “What?” I ask, my throat scratchy. “Doja?”

Her eyes fill with tears and a soft laugh leaves her. “You. If I was ever going to see you again. Feel your arms around me. See you smile. Hear your laughter.”

My chest aches at her confession. “I’m never letting you out of my sight again.”

Blurb:

Our marriage may look like a fairytale, but outside forces threaten to tear us apart. Don’t they realize that nothing will keep me apart from Charlotte? Not my family. Not hers either.

What started out as a relationship in name only has evolved into something much more. Something deeper. And when Charlotte is taken from me, I launch into action, determined to rescue her.

She’s mine. Nothing is going to stop me from being with her.

Publication Date: August 16, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Trilogy/Arranged Marriage/Contemporary Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Perry Constantine, hands down, has been my favorite Constantine in this entire Midnight Dynasty series!

Perry is protective, possessive, passionate, caring while being a total caveman, he is the total package and I’m completely in love with the man!!

Charlotte takes quite an emotional journey in this final book, but I love how she finally finds her footing with the scary ride she’s been on over the last few months.

While Perry and Charlotte’s marriage may have begun as a sham and forced upon both of them, they both come to realize that it evolved into something beyond either of them ever thought they could have and something that they actually want.

I love a couple that walks through this kind of discovery process on their way to love, but it wasn’t without lots of bumps along the way.

This couple is just….ahhhhh…absolutely everything I wanted from Perry and his arranged marriage bride. Even the moments with his family were devine. I loved it!

Synopsis:
THIRD BOOK IN THE ARRANGED MARRIAGE TRILOGY!

Our marriage may look like a fairytale, but outside forces threaten to tear us apart. Don’t they realize that nothing will keep me apart from Charlotte? Not my family. Not hers either.

What started out as a relationship in name only has evolved into something much more. Something deeper. And when Charlotte is taken from me, I launch into action, determined to rescue her.

She’s mine. Nothing is going to stop me from being with her.

Not a damn thing.

Welcome to the Midnight Dynasty… The warring Morelli and Constantine families have enough bad blood to fill an ocean, and their brand new stories will be told by your favorite dangerous romance authors.

Blackmail; Controlling Interest #1
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: August 2, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Midnight Dynasty/Office Romance/Contemporary Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dirty, flirty, emotional, and a grumpy alpha-hole that revs Blackmail into the delicious zone!

Will LeBlanc is a money man. He’s all about figures and not entirely tuned into human emotions. He’s the baby brother in the LeBlanc family, if you read The Collector series, and this is Will’s story.

Will is great at making money, he’s not so great at keeping secretaries. He let’s them goes for the slightest infraction, but when Bristol Anderson walks in on her first day, flawless and with a citrusy scent that lingers after she leaves his office, he’s instantly intrigued. He’s a man who’s never intrigued so when she embezzles fifty thousand dollars from his company and he doesn’t immediately call the police even he’s shocked. Will finds himself in a unique situation, one that works in his favor, a place for blackmail.

Bristol is barely scraping by. Working as a temp, going from job to job and taking care of her twin siblings is exhausting. When her deadbeat dad brings additional trouble to their doorstep in the sum of fifty thousand dollars she’s up against a wall…or she will be when her boss finds out what she’s done. Bristol never imagined when she got caught embezzling from her job that repayment would be in the form of her body and potentially her heart.

The intense moments between Mr. LeBlanc and Ms. Anderson…whew…spicy! Blackmail is juicy and witty and just revving up as this is the first book in a new trilogy.

Synopsis:
Bristol Anderson will do anything to protect her younger siblings. Even if it means embezzling from the company where she’s a temp. No one will find out. And the wealthy owner of the venture capitalist firm will never notice.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Heart pounding, sizzling action. My heart never stopped racing through this entire prequel novella.

Carter Morelli is nothing like I imagined, but everything De-lick-ious!!! He’s yummy intelligence wrapped up in a super spy package. A Morelli with secrets, I should have seen coming, but WOW, did I love the surprise.

Transporting Jane Porter, a wildlife photographer, on his latest mission when everything goes horribly wrong stranding them both on a tiny island. It wasn’t supposed to happen, especially with sweet, innocent Jane in tow, but now they are facing a life and death situation and only Carter knows the truth.

Non-stop, breathtaking action from beginning to end. I can hardly wait for the rest of their story.

Blog Tour – The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy

The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy is now live! 

I didn’t plan to marry a reclusive heiress. Lucky for me, I find myself attracted to my beautiful new bride. Our arranged marriage connects two powerful companies. That we’re compatible between the sheets is a bonus, but I didn’t bargain on her ex showing up at the wedding reception uninvited.

That pushed me right over the edge.

I protect what’s mine, and Charlotte is now mine, whether she likes it or not. Our honeymoon is a disaster in paradise. I’m angry. She’s resentful. All those swirling emotions explode in the most physical ways.

But even as I’m drawn closer to my new wife, there’s still a threat looming out there. Seamus McTiernan is determined to destroy what we’ve created.

I won’t let anything tear us apart.

He has no idea who he’s dealing with. I will end him.

Review – The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy

60891763. sy475

The Ruthless Groom; Arranged Marriage #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: June 14, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Arranged Marriage Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The Wedding Day is here!! Perry Constantine in a tux..be still my heart. Even better..Perry Constantine on his honeymoon…holy hotness!!!

That fine line between love and hate, oh my fresh panties!!! Perry Constantine wants his new bride, but he doesn’t trust her. When Charlotte’s ex appears on their wedding day, all feelings Perry may have been building up to that point disintegrates, but it doesn’t shatter the lust and chemistry that sizzles between them. Perry still desires his wife, but he will call himself a fool before he opens up to her again.

Charlotte is hurt by Perry’s cold demoner, but also confused by his passion. His mixed signals have her confused, but also blazing hot with lust which means she isn’t willing to give up just yet. Not only is she free from her father, but she’s happier than she’s ever been. If this is how her life going forward, it’s still better than what she left behind and maybe given enough time Perry will grow as fond of her as she is of him.

This book is steamy, steamy, and did I mention steamy. I adore this couple and how they have made the best of their arranged marriage situation. Perry is so easy to like even when he’s growly and grumpy. Charlotte is really coming into her own and I’m excited to see what happens in the next book to bring these two closer together.

Synopsis:

Review – One for the Money by Skye Warren

60659562. sy475

One for the Money; #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: May 31, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Book Duet/Midnight Dynasty/Fake Dating/Contemporary Romance

Author: Skye Warren

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A brilliant addition to the Midnight Dynasty, Eva Morelli and Finn Hughes are amazing together.

Eva Morelli is the eldest daughter, known as the planner, the fixer, the one her siblings run if they also need a hug. She is basically the mother to all of her younger siblings without actually having the title which is part of the problem when it comes to her lack of social life and even thinking of having a future. How can she have one when she’s already busy taking care of one family, who would ever understand her life?

Finn Hughes is a man who comes from generations old wealth. He’s very familiar with the weight of his name and the pressure of family secrets. He’s always admired Eva and the silent strength she possesses. When Eva asks Finn if he’d be interested in fake dating him, a relationship that would benefit them both; keeping mother’s out of their personal life, pressure off of them socially and so forth, it is a win-win, especially when it continues to put them together which Finn loves.

Spending time together has it benefits, but as Finn and Eva get closer it might also be their detriment. Neither actually want to have a real relationship, but if they did they both would choose the other.

Eva and Finn are both two selfless and truly beautiful people. I love how this book highlighted how hard they work for their families, but when they spent time together their focus is narrowed down to just the two of them and their intense chemistry for each other. It made the book unputdownable and the need to know how everything would turn out a burning need.

For both families there are several appearances from siblings, which I loved. This addition to the series was absolutely perfect! I can hardly wait for the next book to arrive.

Synopsis:
Finn Hughes knows about secrets. His family is as wealthy as the Rockefellers. And as powerful as the Kennedys. No one knows that the men in his line have a debilitating, early-onset illness. He’s managed the business from a young age while his father served as the figurehead. All the while knowing there’s a ticking clock on his ability to lead.

Eva Morelli is the oldest daughter. The responsible one. The caring one. The one who doesn’t have time for her own interests.

Especially not her interest in the charismatic, mysterious Finn Hughes.

A fake relationship is the answer to both their problems.

It will keep the swarming society mothers from throwing their daughters at him.

And it will keep Eva’s mother from bothering her about marriage.

Then the fake relationship starts to feel real.

But there’s no chance for them. No hope for a woman who’s had her heart broken. And no future for a man whose fate was decided long ago.

Review – The Reluctant Bride by Monica Murphy

58927051. sy475

The Reluctant Bride; Arranged Marriage #1 
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: April 19, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Arranged Marriage/Midnight Dynasty Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Since I first stepped into the Constantine world, I was in love with Perry Constantine. Yes, he’s playful, indulged, and a bit spoiled. He’s the opposite of his intense, older brother – Winston, but that’s what makes him so loveable. I’m over the moon to finally have his story and tickled pink that his character is still a mama’s boy to the ice cold Constantine queen. Add in the fact that Perry is very self aware of his self-indulgent lifestyle, he is my favorite character in this Midnight Dynasty world yet. This book is all that and a bag of chips!!

Charlotte Lancaster is the only daughter of one of the wealthiest families in the country, but that doesn’t make her a pampered princess, quite the opposite actually. Instead she’s a commodity to be traded to the highest bidder which happens to be the Constantine family. Unfortunately, neither party involved in the trading is actually involved in the deal. The documents are signed and the marriage is already going to happen whether Perry or Charlotte want it or not.

Charlotte is a woman torn emotionally, desperately wanting to escape the tight control that her father has on her, but also hating that the only way to escape is through an arranged marriage set up by her controlling father. She doesn’t want to like her – forced upon her – fiancé, but the more time she spends in his company, she just can’t help herself. It wasn’t in her plans to stay with Perry, but maybe being married to him won’t be so bad.

Perry is charismatic, cool, and just fly AF. He’s the kind of guy you want to hang out with and definitely want as a bed partner cause when he’s laying on the charm…hot damn. The man is hard to resist. I want more of him and his sexy as sin charm.

The Reluctant Bride is an excellent beginning to this trilogy and I can’t wait to see how this couple gives in to their electric chemistry.

King of Spades 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: April 5, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Twisted Fairytale/Dark Romance

Author: Alta Hensley

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Take a dive into the Alice in Wonderland theme, but add in ton of dark twists and devious turns.

There is no hiding that I love the Morelli and Constantine Midnight Dynasty world. Every author that has contributed to it has captivated me with their story(ies). I was eager to read what Alta’a dark words were going to add, especially since she was stepping into the Morelli world. While King of Spades held promise, unfortunately it was the actual Morelli heroine that just fell short of a homerun for me.

Lyriope is an illegitimate heir of Bryant Morelli. Hidden in the shadows her entire life, even her famous cousins and half-siblings do not know of her existence. However, there is one man in the city, Nick Hudson, a man who runs his business on information, that does know who her father really is and he will not hesitate to use that information to his benefit.

Lyriope and Nick begin this story with a lot of good tension, she’s terribly naive and he’s very worldly, but more than that, she seeks him out for help in the sticky situation she’s found herself in. Basically running from one bad situation into the arms of another bad man, but on the grounds that he sets her blood on fire and the other party doesn’t, she decides the devil you know is the better choice. Makes sense.

What I didn’t particularly care for is that Lyriope is basically a brat and not in the good sense of the word to build tension. Nick takes her in when her life is in danger and at every turn she’s ungrateful, indigent, and childish. At first I sympathized with her emotions, but as the book went along and Nick was once again explaining her life threatening situation and Lyriope was still just rude, honestly I probably would have let her go and told her good luck. (I also had to remind myself that she sought him out and not the other way around, so a lot of her ungrateful words started to get under my skin.)

However, this book isn’t all bad. The steamy chemistry between them is high, but mainly because Nick distracts her harsh words with other activities, wickedly delicious activities. There is good suspense on the mystery of who is trying to capture and hurt Lyriope as well. Nick will not stop until she is safe, but that in itself creates a quandary because once she is, what will become of his queen.

A point of note, this book does end on a cliffhanger and will return again in Queen of Hearts. A 4.5 star review.

Synopsis:

Nick Hudson has a dangerous reputation.

That’s what I need if I’m going to survive.

Desperation makes me seek out a ruthlessly powerful billionaire.

I need protection.

He demands my virtue as payment.

I’m falling into a world of luxury and sin.

With every twist and turn, I need more.

Except this is not a man to love.

This is a man to fear.

His obsession grows. So does the threat, until I’m trapped in a world of depravity. I’ll need more than Nick’s strength to survive. I’m going to need his heart.

EXCERPT:
The thought of being in control of a situation, for once in my life, is gratifying. Empowered by that thought, I ignore them.
They say they like to play games.
Well, boys, I’ll play.
“So, Sparrow and I had sex today,” I say around a mouthful of fried rice.
Sparrow curses under his breath and Sully chokes on his food for a second. Scout doesn’t react, continuing to eat as though my revelation doesn’t bother him.
“He says I’m his,” I taunt, unable to stop now that I’ve started. “Is that true, Scout?”
Poke the beast, Landry. Terrific idea.
I’m so used to tiptoeing around the monster in my life, that these guys pale in comparison.
“Ours,” Scout clarifies, his nostrils flaring.
He’s not as apathetic as he’s trying to be.
“So how does this whole sharing thing work?” I continue with a saccharine smile sent Scout’s way. “Am I completely off-limits to Sparrow while you’re gone? Or are we just sleepover buddies who cuddle? What if Sully wants a piece? If there are rules to this stupid arrangement, I’m pretty sure we broke them. Oops.”
“Why are you doing this?” Sparrow demands, hurt shining in his maple eyes.
“Why not?” I shovel more food into my mouth, ignoring their intense stares.
“Yeah,” Sully chimes in. “What are the rules, because I’m pretty pissed that all I am in this situation is the fucking babysitter?”
“No one asked you to babysit,” I snap, glowering at him. “Maybe you three can schedule in who watches Della while the other two take turns tag-teaming me.”
Sparrow shoves his container away from him. “Enough. You’re just trying to rile us up and it won’t work.”
But it will.
They’re all getting pissed. I can see it all over their matching faces. Jealousy. Possessiveness. Each of them wants me all to themselves. I’m not a fucking pie you can cut into three sections and separate equally.
“I’m done eating. Scout? Is it your turn?”
“Stop,” Sparrow growls. “I said that’s fucking enough.”
“You’re not the boss,” I bite back, pointing at Sparrow. “Is he? Scout, are you the boss?”
“Honey,” Sully starts, his voice soft like he’s trying to calm me.
“I’m not your honey! I’m your stupid toy!” I yell in a mocking tone. “Take your turns! Use me up! Come on, Scout. It’s our turn to fuck!”
Push. Push. Push.
I crave to push all three of them right off the edge.

Blurb:
All I wanted is for my little sister Della to be safe and happy. And maybe, in brief stolen moments, I dreamed of a happy ending for myself with a brown-eyed man. That hope has turned into sharp, bright fear. There’s only survival now.

I’m the daughter of a controlling and cruel billionaire, so I understand about power. But I find myself fighting anyway. I find myself testing them.

I have claws and I bite. I’m not going down without a fight.

It’s like I have a death wish.

Review – Death Wish by K. Webster

59971245. sy475

Death Wish; Deception Duet #2 
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: March 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Reverse Harem/Antihero/New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: K. Webster

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Who could have guessed that Scout would have topped my favorite between the terror triplets? I’m shocked myself, but when it comes to Webster’s writing it really shouldn’t surprise me. She continually writes the most terrifying psychos who are cuddly and loveable, for the right woman. I cannot get enough of K. Webster and her dark romances.

Death Wish picks up right where we left Landry discovering out that the man she was falling in love with is actually three separate individuals; Scout, Sparrow, and Sully. While it does help explain the personality changes she saw in him, she’s now even more confused by their duplicity and lies.

Landry ran with younger sister, Della, escaping years of abuse, thinking she was running to a friend’s home, instead she ended up at the triplet’s apartment. Now that she’s within their realm, they all agree, for once, that she’s never leaving their arms again. The tougher part is actually winning her back now that she knows they’ve been playing her, but if the triplets know her like like it was their job to do, then winning her over shouldn’t take long.

Their villainous charm weaves around Landry. How could it not? Each of these men have their own dashingly, wicked way to win her over and I’m dying to be in her shoes. Even Della would rather stay with them and her views on each triplet is funny, just as they care for her in theirs.

The second half of this duet is steamy. Webster kind of steamy which means there is always great emotion tied right up with all that delicious heat. Landry also finds her inner fierceness which is perfect for being with the Mannford triplets. They could never be with a demure princess and she needs a strong backbone to be by their side.

I hated seeing this story end and seriously, I never thought these three were redeemable, but why do I keep doubting anything Webster writes. She’s the queen of dark psychos and the terror triplets were brilliant anti-heros.

Synopsis:

All I wanted is for my little sister Della to be safe and happy. And maybe, in brief stolen moments, I dreamed of a happy ending for myself with a brown-eyed man. That hope has turned into sharp, bright fear. There’s only survival now.

I’m the daughter of a controlling and cruel billionaire, so I understand about power. But I find myself fighting anyway. I find myself testing them.

I have claws and I bite. I’m not going down without a fight.

It’s like I have a death wish.
