A pact made.
Two orphans who vowed to never part.

I was selfish—for once, I had to be.

Review – His Hollow Heart by Rachel Leigh

58367499. sy475

His Hollow Heart; Fallen Kingdom #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: November 4, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Intrigue/Dark Romance

Author: Rachel Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Super intrigued by the darkness this book brought that I couldn’t stop reading.

Two children spent four years in foster care together. Best friends, but separated when they were adopted into two different families. While that may seem like the beginning of a happy ending, it was actually the beginning of a nightmare.

Callum spent the last twelve years building his revenge against those who left him, wronged him, and hurt him. He is a man with a dark soul and a hollow heart. He’s cruel, lacks empathy, and his methods of revenge are a bit disturbing, but I was also fascinated at what his game plan was since so much of the man was shrouded in mystery. I had to keep turning the pages to find out what was going to happen, even though Callum himself wasn’t someone I ever wanted to come upon in the dark or even in the light.

Isabella left Cal’s side twelve years ago. While her life went quite a bit differently than his, she never forgot the boy who also had a huge impact on her as a young girl. She has no idea when they reunite years later that she will be kept prisoner in his castle, that’s right…a castle, that she will beg, plead, and cry to go home. Cal is not the boy she remembers, but every once in a while she catches glimpses of the boy she once knew. Is it enough to stay? Not the way he treats her, no. Bella steps into a world she doesn’t know or understand. There are unknown factors and Cal won’t tell her or open up. These mysteries kept me going, even when I agreed with Bella’s thoughts on leaving. 

I was completely intrigued by what should have disturbed me. Basically, what turned my stomach, I couldn’t tear my eyes off the pages and stop reading. I had to know more and I needed to know why. I was frustrated by everything just like Bella, trapped in the pages just like she was trapped in the castle.

This book contains scenes that may disturb some readers. Degradation, imprisonment, snakes…shudder…oh the snakes…and more dark topics. While it’s all important to character growth and the plot, it is a dark book for a reason.

His Hollow Heart is book one in a duet and I can’t even imagine what’s to come for Cal and Bella as their story unfolds.

Excerpt:

“I want you to play the piano for me,” I mutter into her mouth.

I’ve waited twelve years for this. Twelve long years wishing I could watch the way her fingers dance across the keys. The way her mouth parts slightly as she concentrates, every now and then her tongue sweeping across her top lip to wet it. The lust behind her eyes as the passion of playing consumes her.

She pulls back, peering up at me. “You want me to play the piano?”

My fingers slide underneath the spaghetti strap of her dress. “Take this off and play me that piece you wrote when we were kids.”

Her pupils dilate with her fixed gaze. “You want me to take my dress off and play the piano?”

“Not just your dress. I want it all off—now.” I pull the strap down, exposing her shoulder to me, then the other, until they’re both hanging freely on her arm.

Bella clears her throat and runs her hands down her dress. “You’re kidding, right?”

She should know by now that I don’t joke, especially not when it comes to matters of her obedience. “No, I am most definitely not kidding.”

She will do what I say, or the repercussions will be much worse than her ridding herself of her clothes and pouring her heart into a song that I demand to hear.

Her trembling fingers attempt to adjust the strap of her dress, but I grab her hand and shake my head. “Now, Bella.” I press.

“Cal,” she takes a calming breath, avoiding eye contact as her eyes stay affixed to the door, “I’m not taking my dress off. That’s absurd.” She takes a step forward as if she’s planning to make an escape, but I throw my arm out, grabbing her around the waist.

“Then I’ll take it off for you.”

EXCERPT

Prologue

I shift the old beater in drive and peel out as quick as I can, leaving a trail of smoke in my path. The smell of burning rubber fills the car and it isn’t until I round the corner that the smoke diminishes. Behind me, just like my life—my past. With only the duffel bag riding co-pilot, and the stash of money I was able to get from the safe.

It won’t be long until he’s on the phone with all of his goons to start the search for his missing property—me. At least that’s the way I have lived my life for the past few years, as a prisoner. His prized possession that he kept up on the shelf, out of reach and displayed with the utmost prestige.

If I so much as wore the wrong color, he’d lose his fucking mind. I never went down without a fight, and when I did, I fought hard. I’m pretty sure that’s what he liked the most, feeling the wrath of my bitterness. He felt it alright, with the head of a golf club, straight to the balls. I hit him so hard that he’s probably choking on them right now.

None of it matters anymore.

I drive for what feels like hours, though it was only two. Those two hours have put enough space between myself and the life I lived that I feel confident enough that it’s safe to pull into the next rest stop. My stomach growls as I take a sip of my cold coffee.

I pull into the first space available and my eyes search the parking lot, just to be sure he didn’t follow me.

The coast is clear.

I reach over and unzip the black bag and pull out my wallet, pulling out my new i.d. Claire Hyland—my new identity. Just the last name, anyways.  I’ve been working on the name change for a while, with the plan to take off as soon as everything finalized. It’s the only way I can leave and not be found. I still can’t believe Jorge pulled this off in time. The car, the room to rent, and the interview. Apparently he has some connections with a well-known family from Redwood. It just so happens that they were in need of an art teacher.

I’m forever in his debt. He’s my best friend and the only person who knows that I left, let alone, where I’m going.

I pull out the papers he printed for me on the job.

Redwood High School
Long-term Art Substitute 

I’ve never taught before. I don’t even like kids, let alone hormonal know-it-alls—but, there isn’t much out there with an arts degree.  A temporary teaching position is the perfect way to live low-key, for now, anyway.
