Blurb: — When life gives you blood, make mayhem. —
Grim. Assassin. Leather-clad sex god. Has the most unusual taste in men.
Misha. Mutilated. Afraid. Will never trust again.
Grim is a bloodthirsty killer, and he owns it. Gay in a world of outlaw bikers, he firmly stands his ground if anyone dares to cross him. He takes pleasure in showing homophobes their place and fucking his way through a life of carnage.
But there is a part of him always aching for something he cannot get. When by chance he saves the most perfect guy he’s ever met, he is not about to let him go. Even if it means he needs to smother his broken bird.
When a masked, bloodstained man rescues Misha from captivity, he doesn’t know if he should thank the menacing stranger or stab him and run. Grim is not the kind of man who takes no for an answer, and Misha might now be in more danger than when he was trapped as a sex slave.
Misha cannot deny though that Grim is as alluring as he is frightening, and once Misha realizes what power his body holds over Grim, he understands that taming the beast of a man could be within his reach.
But any possibility of a future together is like a house of cards when Zero, the sadistic crime lord who destroyed Misha’s life, sets out to get him back.
Will the ruthless biker assassin at Misha’s side be enough to conquer the monsters from his past?
Review: If you’ve read this series this far, then nothing should surprise you, right? Wrong!!! I really have no idea how to properly put into words how disturbing this book was to me. I honestly thought I’d read it all, seen it all, and that nothing could surprise me. But, nope, trust me…this one showed just how very wrong I was. It also made me feel bad about myself because I was still entertained enough to keep reading. There seriously must be something wrong in my head; not to mention the authors’ head, too.
Taboo in romance is nothing knew, kinks and fetishes are all over the place, but this amputee fetish, with devotees, and the dark underworld associated with this deviant lifestyle grabbed me by the neck and shoved all my inhibitions down my throat. I know my fellow reviewers (on our blog) were just as blindsided as I was about this story since I shared many heart-stopping scenes with them, because I wasn’t brave enough to deal with this book by myself…I’m still a little traumatized.
So, like I mentioned above, if you’ve read the series this far, then this type of drama is probably right up your alley, and you will be amazed by what you read. But, if you plan on picking this book up as a stand alone, be prepared and don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
