Ahhhh, I just love my dark romance. On that note however, as far as being dark, this one fell just a bit short for me. I will say that I HIGHLY recommend you read The Devil’s Kiss Trilogy before this one or else I fear you would be rather lost. This one starts approximately one year after the ending of the trilogy. Kayla has ran away and put herself into hiding hoping to not be found and start over fresh with her daughter. She has went back to her normal life although she still craves Gage’s punishment.
Imagine Kayla’s surprise when Gage Channing shows up at her doorstep all these months later. She thought he had given up on her and yet knew there had to be a reason he had stayed away all this time. And then, of course, Ian follows behind not too long after begging for one more chance. This is another one of those stories that makes me wonder if her vagina is made of gold. I mean, two brothers, desperately craving the same woman. But, then we are thrown a curve ball in finding out that Gage originally went after her for reasons other than attraction.
So of course we get the drama that tears them apart and go through the drama of them both figuring out what they did wrong and where they failed each other. I won’t totally spoil it for you and let you figure that out. Let’s just say,
it is one that you want to jump in the book and smack both of them and make them open their eyes to what they are not seeing. While writing this review, I have actually raised my rating of the book. Writing this has brought back all
the emotion that this brought out to me and I think I am enjoying rehashing it immensely and wanting someone to chat with about it. We see a softer side to Gage in this story which was definitely a nice turn and almost makes you want to forgive him for his behavior in the first three books. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys books with a BDSM influence and a bit of a darker romance with a super alpha male.
She lives with her husband and their four children–three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.
