I always go in with a plan. A set of rules for myself. I don’t take unnecessary risks. That’s how I’ve been able to evade capture all these years.
But there’s something about this girl that is different than the others. When I finally meet her, the rules become a blur. And I break the most important one of all—I take her with me.
It’s just my imagination—that feeling of being watched. That those icy eyes— a vivid turquoise with a distinct golden fleck—aren’t watching me.
It’s just stress. I am the person everyone relies on. Maybe that’s why I haven’t been feeling so content with my life lately. Why I dream those eyes belong to someone who can tear me away from all of my responsibilities.
But these are just shameful fantasies, never meant to breach reality.
Then one night, the dream comes true, only it’s a horrific nightmare.
Now, I only have one task: survival.
Talk about hard limits. The author warn everyone about it, but I guess my hard limits are very different from normal human beings. I know this is all twisted, fucked up and the anti-hero, is totally non-redeemable, Nina didn't even try to redeem him, but I find myself still rooting for him till the very end. Who cares for right and wrong. I just care for what I feels.
This book consume my thoughts, hooked me up from the first page till the last. This is also the first time I feel a smidgen of embarrassment and reluctance to share what I read with my husband, at least not play by play. With the recent shit storm about an author bashing other people for supporting certain book, I'm worried this book will fall under that kind of scrutiny. Is this romance, or just pure fiction? I don't care much for labels, I love reading what I read and I'm a romance reader at heart, so there.
Sam is the bad guy, he is the evil incarnated, but he also has a humane side. The good guys in this story are just a bunch of fucking hypocrite. Sometimes, I wonder is good and evil is such a black and white thing. I'm sure everyone is pretty much gray.
My first book of Nina was Debt. She definitely outdone herself by created an anti-hero even much scarier than Tax Draconi. But I guess I feel safer lusting after Tax, rather than Sam. Sam is simply too much for me to handle. Nonetheless, I am here entire sated and satisfied with the ending Nina presented. I'm glad to find an author who is so daring to write such an epic fucked up piece of dark romance.
