Goodreads Review – “This book was absolutely fantastic and it’s on the darker side of my reading but let me just say that Autumn didn’t disappoint me with this book.”
When even hope seems hopeless.
Prologue opens up to a woman, Natalie Carter, being tortured to death as her sister, Raen, is being forced to watch due to backstabbing one Blaine Casey, AKA Blade.
Leaving an almost 7-yr old Tilly, Natalie’s secret daughter from a one-night stand from her days as a stripper.
Brett De Courcy, single dad to Tilly, and whose ex was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, chapter starts us off two weeks after the prologue. Unbeknownst to him at the beginning, he did not know of Natalie’s demise.
Raen now has taken the reigns of Natalie’s vow of servitude to Blaine. Living as a prisoner held in an invisible cell of threats. She seeks out Brett with hope that he will help free her from.
Being a billionaire, Brett, is a part of the Vertus Circulo, a group of members who has the world in their hands. Together they seek to not only free Raen, but bring Blaine and his operation down.
From death, to insanity, to mania, to lust and steamy moments. The story is about loss, about two broken souls coming together through wishes of hope. His emotions ran hot and cold, while trying to keep Tilly and the ghost of his ex at the forefront. Hers range from lust to fear and needy in-between. I admit, it perturbed me that she wasn’t understanding the primary need should be Tilly’s safety.
The cracks in each of their hearts scream in yearning as they their lives become evermore twined leaving heartache in their wakes the longer Brett hides Raen from Blaine. All the while bringing Blaine’s group closer and closer, becoming a dangerous situation for Tilly as well.
Everything come clashing together in a spectacularly dark and twisted way. Holy moly, did not see that one coming. Actually, two big twists. Then another twist.
Ends in a flourishing HEA and am looking forward to storylines following the rest of the Vertus Circulo if the author continues that route.
