There is a fine line between genius and madness…
Between love and hate,
Between right and wrong.
Joseph had created The Estate for her…
The woman he chose to bear his child.
She was beauty unsurpassed;
And her song was unlike anything he’d ever known.
However, their love was a story that would not find a happy ending.
In this prequel novella to the Estate series, follow Joseph Carmichael as he creates a world unlike any other. Because, in order to comprehend The Estate, you must understand Joseph; but, in order to understand Joseph, you must discover how a man falls from light into the pitch black depths of ultimate darkness.
To me, there is nothing scarier than a smart criminal. They are the worse kind because they think everything through and when they act you know it’s because they have thought everything through. Every step of the way. I mean seriously, that’s just scary.
Add onto that, the normal guy who just wants the best for him and his new wife. Joseph is willing to do whatever it takes to get to the top without realizing the consequences of his actions. All that Arianna wants is to be happy, and she is that with Joseph. She doesn’t need all the fancy things that he thinks they need, nor does she want them.
But as the time goes by she realizes she is caught with no chance of escaping.
I normally do not read the dark romances, they are not for me. And actually I don’t really know how this one can be considered a romance because of everything that happens in the story. I will say this though; you do need to heed the warning because if you are faint of heart, you will not be able to read this book. There are some very graphic scenes that happen and they will make you cringe. At least they did with me.
I did enjoy this book because even though we knew in Madeliene Abducted that Joseph was twisted, and it was great
to see how it happened. I really liked how it was such a gradual change, M.S. certainly didn’t rush the switch which I think just added more to the story than anything else. If the story would have been rushed, I think it wouldn’t have worked out the way that it did.
I think that M.S. completely stepped out of the shadow of her Control Series and was able to show us how she is able to switch genres and still be able to write a great story.
