Blurb

Monsters don’t often look like monsters on the outside.

Forced to marry a man I should hate, I’m now bound to Damian.

I sometimes wonder what he sees when he looks at me. Deer in headlights, I guess.

What I see is clear.

Darkness.
Desire.
Carnal want.

A man with too much experience.

The night he took me he told me I belong to him. He proved it on our wedding night. And I believe him when he says he’ll keep me safe. He won’t let anyone touch what’s his.

But I can’t forget what he is. Can’t forget the things he’s done.

And no matter what, I can’t let myself fall in love with him.

Review by Jen Skewes

I have read a lot of Natasha Knight’s books, but this one was, in my opinion, her best one yet.  I loved Unholy Union but I think that this one more than exceeded any expectations I had and was by far was my favorite of the duet.  It gave me everything that I love in her books.  It was dark,  twisted, and HOT with surprise twists along that way.  I devoured this book in one sitting.  And when I was done I not only wanted more, but I could not get Damien DiSanto out of my head.  

 

Oh, how I loved Damien.  Yes, he is a complete bastard who is dark, intense and ruthless, but he would also go to great lengths to protect what is his.  Beneath that hard exterior is a heart,  even though it is buried real deep.  He does have a soft side that does not come out often at all.  It’s all of the above that made me love this man.  Cristina is his, whether she wants to be or not.  He had no intentions of falling for her.  He had a plan, and he intended on sticking to it.  But I think from the moment he saw her as a 10-year-old girl there was something about her that was special.  He made a promise to her that he would let her go after the year is up, but he’s not sure that he can follow through with his promise.  He doesn’t think that he can because he does not want to let her go, he can’t let her go. 

 

Cristina is young and na├»ve but at the same time she is fierce and strong.  She fights Damien every step of the way.  Well except maybe in the bedroom where her body tends to betray her, because being so close to Damien is too hard to resist.  But she doesn’t know who to trust in the house of liars and monsters that she is living in.  She wants to trust Damien and believe that he will protect her, but it’s hard when he keeps things from her.  She does her best to just survive each day, while also trying to figure out what is really going on.  Why Damien really wants to marry her, why he only needs her for the year, and when the year’s up will he really let her go?

 

I cannot express enough how much I loved this book.  Damien completely did it for me.  There are moments between him and Cristina that you truly see the good side of him.  Those moments are the ones where I fell even more.  As much as she frustrated and pissed him off, she also made him feel things that he has never felt before.  She broke every wall around that black heart of his, finding out that he is capable of feeling more than just anger.  He is capable of being more than the monster he is perceived to be.  He was so afraid he would break Cristina but at the same time she could break him just as easily.  I’m just not sure either one of them knew that at first.  

 

This book pulled so many emotions out of me.  There’s that element of suspense and shock at the way the story goes.  The feeling of trying to figure out how this would all end.  That feeling where you don’t realize that you are holding your breath until the very end.  The edge of your seat moments that make you sick but yet, you love to experience.  Similar to the feeling that you get when riding a roller coaster, and the nervousness that comes when you get to the real thrilling parts of it.   The darkness that is not too much but just enough to make your heart beat fast.  The sweet and tender moments where you see a bit of the hero’s vulnerability come out.  The hot and sexy scenes that make you blush.  The love between the anti-hero that you should hate and the kick ass heroine who fight tooth and nail, only to fall in love with her monster.

Excerpt

“Welcome home, Brother.”
I look up at Damian. Beautiful Damian.
He shifts his gaze to mine. 
“Didn’t I tell you to leave the locked doors alone?” he asks me, but his voice is strange. Echoing in this dusty, forgotten place.
The music starts again. That eerie sound of piano keys played slowly, so fitting to this place, this room, this house. 
My head is spinning. 
The other man, Damian’s brother, says something. His voice is similar to Damian’s but off. Like his face. Wrong.
Damian tucks hair behind my ear. 
I push his hand away, push his arms away. I turn slowly. They’re both watching me now, waiting to see what I’ll do. 
And the tune keeps playing, the chords slow. Sad.
I need to look at him. 
Can they hear my heartbeat? Blood beats like a drum against my ears. 
Run.
Run.
But I can’t run. I meet a monster at every turn. One standing behind me. The other holding me. 
He warned me about the monsters. How many more hide in this house?
“Cristina,” Damian says. 
I keep turning, my body still pressed to Damian’s.
I’ve taken shelter in my enemy’s arms. 
He’s in my periphery now. The monster. The brother. Tall, like Damian. I see the coat. It’s wet. He was the man walking back toward the house. It wasn’t Damian at all. What is out there that they go to see in the dead of night?
