I thought I was done.
I couldn’t take my eyes off her as the bullet tore through me, leaving me with nothing but the hope that I had done enough to save her. The darkness tried to engulf me—to brand me as its own and drag me to my fate.
Waking to see her tear-stained face above me was enough to make my heart stutter. I was alive and free from that place—but not from the toll it had taken on my mind and body. My story should have ended, but one woman kept standing in the way of that.
The only way I could have her was to find a way to put the darkness to rest.
Warning: This isn't your rainbows and love sonnets kind of romance. This story explores topics of abduction and slavery, and contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex.
Release Date: November 18, 2014

In the words of the Carters, “who wants that perfect love story anyway?”
Ladies and gentlemen, this was not your typical love story. That would be too cliché. This was a story about lust, gluttony, greed, desire, adultery, lies, betrayals, secrets, and passion, and how all those things came together when a man meets a woman whose essence spoke to him. This was more than a story about a dominant and submissive. More than a boss and his subordinate. More than sex. More than love. This was the story of a woman who met her match in the most unlikely place and discovered that her need for him consumed her and turned her world upside down.
Alexander Reeves: He just might be my favorite dominant ever written. The things he did to and for Amelia endeared me to him. He was everything you would imagine a dominant to be. Possessive. Controlling. Sketchy past that shaped him to the man he is now. High libido. Rich. However, I was not expecting him to be very in tuned with his emotions, but he was.
Favorite Line: You are the heart that pumps life through my body. Each beat belongs to you, because it is you. I am you, Amelia. (You may not fall out. How sweet?)
Amelia Jones: I understood her. I got her. Can you imagine meeting a man that you were instantly drawn to? He instantly affected your body like no one you've ever met. What would you do? Probably the same thing Amelia did. I loved that she pushed the envelope in their dominant/submissive relationship. She’s a rebel who couldn't truly conform to the role of a submissive yet she wanted to explore that world anyway.
Favorite Moment: Her driving his Trident Iceni Grand Tourer aka Her Majesty for the first time. Followed by her moment with Honeydew aka his Lamborghini. She loved cars just like I do. Hell, she named her Range Rover Cloud Nine.
My thoughts: I really really really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. What an amazing ride! From the moment Amelia and Alexander met, I was rooting for them. Alexander I. did a wonderful job writing this story. I felt every emotion they felt. When she was angry and sad so was I. When her desires consumed her, I felt that too. This story grabs you and brings you into their world. It’s a must read especially if you are over the cliché love story. I can’t wait for the sequel in December. 5 stars from me.
P.S. I was given this book from the author in an exchange for my honest review.
