I live in a world where secrecy reigns.

A Society rooted in power, wealth, and long-held dynasties.

Where men are Kings, and women are pawns.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamt of escaping the shackles of my expectations.

But it can only ever be a dream.

I made a fatal mistake, and those shackles became a cage.

Now I’m trapped in a war with a man who controls my every move.

He’s my brother’s best friend.

My enemy, my tormentor, and my solace.

His words have the power to wound me.

His touch just might break me.

But this is his kingdom, and as long as I’m here I only have one choice.

I’ll play by his rules.

Review by Jen Skewes

This is the book that I have been waiting for. After reading The Society Trilogy I wanted so much more of Judge and Mercedes’ story, because I knew that there was certainly a good story to be told. This writing duo did not disappoint.


We first med Mercedes and Judge in the Society Trilogy.  Mercedes’ is the sister of Judge’s best friend.  Mercedes gets out of control and does something that not only has terrible consequences for her but something that is just unforgiveable.  She may have thought she was doing something to protect her brother but in the end it all went the wrong way.  Enter Judge, the man who has now been tasked with taking care of his sister and not in a nice comforting way.  No, Judge is responsible for “taming the beast” so to speak.   She is to be stiped of all her freedom, independence and her dignity.  The one person who was supposed to love her and care for her has just fed her to wolves.  Or in this case one wolf but trust me when it comes to Judge he is certainly more than even Mercedes can handle.  


Judge is a man of law and rules.  You break his rules, you will be punished. It’s that simple.  And just because Mercedes is his best friend’s sister doesn’t mean that he will go easy on her.  Mercedes is not the type to just give in and let Judge control her. She fights every step of the way even if it means taking his punishments.  But you have to wonder just how much can one person take?  How far will Judge go?  But more importantly, how long before they both give into the intense push/pull between the two of them.  Because there is an abundance of chemistry between the two of them.  So much so that you can feel it. 


I loved this book.  I wondered how far this writing du would go with Judge and Mercedes, in regard to the dark side of this story.  I have read enough of Ms. Knight’s books to know how dark she can go and how intense it can get on many different levels. But knowing that Mercedes s Santiago’s sister, I wondered if it would be less dark and dare I say tame.  But trust me, the word tame is not in this writing duo’s vocabulary.  They gave me everything that I love and want from their writing.  It was dark, raw and intense.  Judge did not hold back just because it was Mercedes that he was in control of.  There were times when I wanted to love him and times when I wanted to hurt him.  There were moments where I wanted to smack him and tell him to wake up when it came to a certain person.  But then you would see a more vulnerable side of him when it came to Mercedes and I couldn’t help but love him.  



This is the first book in this trilogy, and I cannot wait for more.  The writing was flawless.  The intensity of their relationship was felt throughout the entire book.  The chemistry between them was palpable.  Judge was a man of mystery who piqued my interest more than once in the first trilogy.  I disliked Mercedes so much that I had no idea how I would feel about her, but I had grown to love her.  All because the writers made me see her in a new light.  See how much she was hurting and yearning for love.  I found myself rooting for her and for her to redeem herself.  This is the beginning of a great trilogy and I cannot wait for book two.
