Ms. Lake put together a dark story of love, corruption, abuse, and retribution. It is a very complicated mix but all very well done. If a dark read is what you seek, this is the book for you.
Nick Ryder has been out for revenge and he’s been planning carefully for a few years now. It’s time to put things in motion but getting to know the wife of the man responsible for his misery was very unexpected. Things are not what they seem and it this changes everything.
Aubree Culling is the wife of a man with higher stature in the City of Detroit. She plays her role well as his wife in the public eye but no one knows the real life she has to live when nobody’s looking. Mentally and physically abused and she fears that her only escape from this is taking her own life but even that is not in her control.
I will tell you right now that this very dark genre is not my typical read. In fact, I usually run from books such as this. Because I loved Keri Lake’s previous books, I stepped out of my comfort zone and braved it. My trust for her work did not disappoint but I will be honest with you, I did not expect how dark this book really is. I cringed at the abusive scenes and a couple of times had to stop reading to compose myself.
That being said, I still enjoyed every bit of this book. It was fast paced, action packed, sexy but be forewarned; it is not for the faint of heart. It has graphic violence, explicit language, kidnapping, rape and a very unorthodox kind of relationship. My favorite part was the twists that connects the mindblowing ending to the very sad beginning…totally unexpected.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
