I enjoyed this book! Savannah and Mason’s story had me on edge the whole time wondering what they were hiding. I loved the twists and turns! They both may have been keeping secrets but Mason isn’t letting his woman go and he always gets what he wants. This was a hot, suspenseful story and I definitely recommend reading this!
*Received ARC for honest review 💙
Born and bred to rule, I embraced my place in our family with pride.
I was the leader. The boss. The king.
Fueled by my family’s need for revenge, I was on a bloody path toward vengeance. That’s when I found her—a filthy, weak, broken girl.
The mystery that surrounded her seduced me. Her secrets pulled me down to the deepest pits of hell, the demons of her past threatening to burn the empire I swore to protect.
Now the devil himself is knocking at my door, wanting his beautiful, broken girl back.
But she’s mine now. I claimed her. And anyone who dares to take her away from me will be completely, utterly, royally…
My Thoughts 💭
I got this book because it was free lol. It was an okay read for me. I think some stuff would’ve made more sense if I read the first two books in the series. I enjoyed the ending with the secrets coming to light. Antonio didn’t feel like someone who is the head of the family. He didn’t seem like a strong character to me. The book does cover the abuse Doe suffered at the hands of her previous owner so beware if that offends you. I’m unsure if I’ll read the next book to find out what happens next.

What’s it like to be a monster in a town full of monsters, who don’t know you’re a monster?
Complicated and a little scary, but doable.
What’s it like to be the girl who can’t die…that everyone seems to always want to kill?
Frustrating as hell.
What’s it like to accidentally raise psychotic alpha vampire everyone fears, who drops a lot of bodies on his first day out as a ‘gift’ for your troubles?
Terrifying, if I’m being honest.
What’s it like when that crazed vampire tells you he wants you to be the happy little intermission, during an ongoing ancient story, and expects you to use your vagina to draw in a werewolf alpha, a Van Helsing alpha, and a sexual deviant alpha, so he can have his old friends back?
That’s when a girl has to stop, look around, and question her life choices.
I really don’t know how this stuff keeps happening to me. Life was simpler when it was just me accidentally blowing myself up while trying to create potions and shampoo.
I’ve lived my life in such secrecy that I’ve spent most of it lonely. So lonely, in fact, that my best friend is a delusional ghost. I’d rather focus on her than all the crazy things happening in my life at current. Ever since coming to this town, I’ve had my throat slit by vampires, attracted way too much attention from some powerful alphas, and did a lot of regrettably stupid things because…I’m too gullible for shady monsters.
To them, I’m the fool.
To them, I’m the naive girl in over my head.
To them, I’m the pawn on a worn chessboard, while the seasoned players knock me around.
Meanwhile, I’m still left to figure it all out on my own, because, just like me, no one wants to share their secrets.
My Thoughts 💭
I am loving this series! I love Violet and how she’s winning over the alphas and omegas! I liked how there was finally a little background on why the alphas weren’t on very good terms in the first place! I’m still on the fence about Arion’s feelings for Violet he seems like such a jerk and then he’s sort of nice! I don’t like how Violet’s mother left her nothing to go by so she’s getting information accidentally and not because the guys actually answer any of her questions. I can’t wait for the next book and hopefully get more info about Violet’s family.

Duty meets desire . . .
Mercy O’Malley hates killing people. So when she’s assigned to take out Vampire-Demon Logan Kyllwood, she lures him to a seedy bar in Scotland, then decides to kidnap him instead. How can she cold-bloodedly end all that heat, those green eyes, that ripped body?
Unfortunately for Mercy, attempted murder and kidnapping are just foreplay for the Kyllwood brothers. Logan may be the youngest of the bunch, but death and violence are already a way of life. Now he’s ready to complete a painful, terrifying ritual to become one of the Seven, dedicated to protecting this world from the most dangerous evil it’s ever known. But first he has to deal with a blackmailing Fey, a ransom demand and his own pounding need for the last female he ever should have fallen for . . .
My Thoughts 💭
I absolutely love this series and I was so excited I was approved for an ARC! Once I started reading I was hooked! The action was awesome and the chemistry between Logan and Mercy was hot! Mercy is this cute Fae who takes no mess. Logan is a totally alpha male soldier but has a sweet side. They were a good fit. I enjoyed when Mercy would not just do what Logan said she has her own mind and didn’t have any problems telling him when to shove it lol! I can’t wait to read the next one!
