I have loved every single Ella Fox book that I have gotten my greedy little hands on…and this book was no different. But if was different. I’ve seen a lot of maturity and growth in the last
several books by Ella and it all culminated here, in this story about a controlling man and lost girl.
The plot of this book blew me away. I finished it several days ago and I’m still thinking about it, and still trying to decide who is responsible for what. This story just has so many layers of lies and deceit; you are constantly pulling things away only to reveal new things that I know I, for one, did not expect!
Way to keep me on my toes there, dear author! This book also put me through a gamut of emotions. I was angry, I was sad, I was happy, I was turned on…you name it. In the end, my mind was blown.
Killian I desperately wanted to hate. But, I think it’s the mark of a true writer when they can take a character you are not supposed to like and they make you like him. It’s a fine line. Granted, I would say that Killian goes straight over the line from Alpha to asshole pretty quickly, and he’s not gentle or sweet (though he can be). Still, Killian worked for, and in the end, got my respect.
Now for the best part of any Ella Fox book…the sex. Oh sweet baby jeebus in the manger…she did not disappoint. I had to file a few things away in my mental rolodex (read: spank bank) with this one. If you like the D/s books that are out there right now, then you cannot go wrong here, it definitely has that flavor. And I have to say, the sex in this book is neither perfect nor sugar coated, but still maintains complete hotness. When Sloane loses her virginity it was, well…it was real. It was nice to get a character’s true feelings on something like that, because it often just seems
so overdone in books that losing one’s virginity is this precious and wonderful thing and that gets tiresome.
Ella Fox’s books just keep getting better and better, in my humble opinion. At the end of this book, when it all came together, I was blown away. She weaves such an intricate and well told tale and when it all comes together you realize that you have just been taken on a ride by someone who is quickly approaching master storytelling level. It was awesome. 5 stars.
A horrifying suspicion takes root in my head and a wave of dizziness sweeps through me as I realize that there is only one possible reason that he is here. The only explanation that makes sense is that he wants to be the one to throw me out into the street. Somehow he’s in control of Stephen and Celine’s house, and I just bet he’d done whatever he had to do to get himself into this position. Four and half years he’d been waiting for a shot at me, and now he has it.
“You’re… throwing me out?” I try, damn hard, to keep from breaking down. The tears I keep at bay, but there is a definite warbling of my voice as I ask the question.
Immediately I am angry with myself for showing such weakness and I decide to take the bull by the horns. I am not about to give Killian Brandt, of all people, the pleasure of seeing me break, even though I have to admit to myself that I am definitely breaking. I plow on before he can answer my ridiculous question.
“What am I saying? Of course you’re throwing me out! I’m sure this has to be one of the best moments of your miserable life, you selfish son-of-a-bitch. You want me out? Consider me gone!”
I jump to my feet to go call Demi, only to come to a dead halt when Killian thunders out a command. “Sit your ass down,now.”
I am so shocked by the force behind his words that I immediately drop back onto the couch. I don’t actually fear Killian, but my response to his tone of voice is instantaneous.
For one moment, I allow myself to hope that maybe Killian isn’t here to ruin my life. Maybe, just maybe, he isn’t as bad as I think he was.
“I’m not kicking you out, Sloane. I’m buying you.”
Whatever I thought before? It was all too generous. Killian just turned my life upside down with nine life-changing words.
It hangs out there between us as I gape at him while I try to formulate a response. “Buying me…? This proves that you’re insane! I’m not a commodity. What exactly can I do for you,
Killian? Be your maid?”
The look he gives me is a lot like a warning and instinctively I know that whatever he says next isn’t going to be good.
“No, you’re going to be my lover.”
