“The desire to possess her is violent, all-consuming. It’s an obsession that goes beyond a simple sexual need, though my body burns for her. I don’t just want to fuck her; I want to imprint myself on her, to mark her from the inside out, so that she will never belong to any man but me. I want to own her completely.”


The second book in this series also rates another five red hearts from me. I liked this book because we are now introduced to Julian’s POV instead of the whole book being solely Nora’s.

In this book we see Nora evolve from a pampered teenager who fell in love with her kidnapper to a young lady who is now a wife to one of the most dangerous arms dealer in the world.

The sex scenes are still intense and brutal, which is, of course, consistent with Julian’s character. However, you will notice that Nora is no longer the victim. There wasn’t any part in this book where she was a victim. At all.

Julian here has also evolved from a heartless kidnapper and abuser to a man who does not know what to do with his feelings. Of course, a child who grew up the way he did in the real world would probably be just as bad as he is in fiction.

The torture scenes were gruesome and difficult to get through. But, like in the first book, I found myself glued to every page, every paragraph, every word. The scenes and events were described vividly, and I enjoyed every second of the journey.

I will most certainly be looking forward to the third book. I hope that that book will finally give Nora and Julian their happily ever after. I am still not a fan of dark erotica. However, for this series and this author, I will be more than happy to make an exception.

“Will you ever let me go?” I murmur, remembering our long-ago conversation. His lips twitch in a faint smile. He remembers too. “No,” he replies softly. “Never.” We lie in silence for a few moments, and then he asks quietly, “Do you want me to let you go?” “No, Julian.” I close my eyes, a smile curving my own lips. “Never.”

“In recent months, the emotional aspect has become as necessary to me as the physical. It amuses me, this strange quirk of mine. I want my little captive to love me, to care about me. I want to be more than just the monster of her nightmares.”
