Carnal (adjective):

1) Relating to the pleasures of the body

2) Given to sensual indulgence

3) The man who kidnapped me

The devil has blue eyes, an Irish accent, and a hatred for me that runs deep.

He blames me for starting a war. Consorting with his enemies. Getting his men killed. Though I’m innocent on all charges, he wants his pound of flesh. With an eye on revenge, he makes me his captive.

But as we’ll both soon discover, there are more powerful urges than that for revenge.

When the devil meets his match but she’s his sworn enemy, that’s when the real war begins.

The sooner this is over, the better. I’ve known her for all of two hours— half of that while she was unconscious— and I’m ready to shoot myself in the face.”

His glare is withering, but I don’t wilt. I smile instead. He says, “Whoever gave you the idea you’re charming was an idiot.” “Oh, c’mon . Admit it. You’re already a big fan.” His expression indicates he might throw up.”

Plot Summary :

Slaone has got herself in a bit of trouble. Being kidnapped by a blue-eyed hottie should not be that bad considering how easy it is to rile him up. What she didn’t expect was to feel attraction for that brutt of a man. She is not someone who ever gets close to people. She is the one who keeps them at arm's length and firmly believes that men are good for nothing. Then why does Declan make her heart race. Why does he want her to shed all those beliefs and be with him instead , if only the man gave her clear hints somehow.

Kidnapping someone should not be that infuriating. Declan is not a nice man. He has killed enough and tortured the rest but nothing even comes to the agony his captive is making him feel. Sloane is a woman who lives in a village and teaches yoga for god’s sake and the woman’s confidence can rival the biggest of tycoons. She is a little spitfire who will make him have white hair before his age . Her smart mouth is something he has never experienced before and years of military training never taught him how to defend himself against little spitfires who are hell bent on turning on his men against him and making him fall for her in the end.

From the other end of the plane, Declan thunders, “Take your bloody piss!” Shaking my head, I say, “I feel sorry for his mother. She should’ve swallowed instead.”

Overall Opinion :


It’s been seriously too damn long since I have read a book this perfect!! The humour , the steam , the characters , the plotline and the ending , EVERYTHING WAS 10/10!! I can still feel myself chuckling at a few scenes. This book is literally the best work of this author.

I nearly had a coronary at a few interaction scenes between Sloane and Declan! The way she infuriated the man was funny as hell. He was a A Mafia lord and make him stand in front of a little spitfire and he didn’t know what to do. He was one hell of a dominant man and I loved the steamy scenes because of that. Both the characters were stubborn and Declan gave as good as he got so in total the book is a legit masterpiece.

If you want one hell of a dark romance standalone with a irish brute who ends up kidnapping the most stubborn and spitfire woman , then read this book! I have never shouted this much lol , but you guys have to read this book definitely. I can't think of any major trigger to warn you guys about it but please , this book is definitely perfect for anyone and everyone and please don’t miss it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL!!
