My husband. My monster. The truth isn’t always what it seems. Lia doesn’t realize that, but she will. Soon. I chose this life. This road. This twisted arrangement. For her, I made a deal with the devil. For her, I toyed with fate and death. There’s no going back. I stole her and like any thief, I won’t return her. Lia is my addiction. My obsession. My love. Mine. This book is the final part of a trilogy and is not standalone.

My Review 💋
My form of love isn’t sweetness or softness. It’s nothing noble or delicate. My love is selfish and villainous. My love is the type where I will kill people to protect you and erase others to avenge you. My love is possessive, obsessive, and knows no boundaries, not when I first met you and certainly not now.”

Plot Summary :
Lia , winter and Adrian are back! I won't say much about what happened and what not here because of spoilers. But I can't tell you that, yes you'll get all your answers and this book is the freaking best one yet!
One day, she’ll realize that the world we live in doesn’t matter. We’re the only ones who do.”
Overall Opinion :
Holy shit. The way I waited for this book, damn, I can't remember ever waiting this bad for a book! I had remainders set on my calendar and alarms as well! By about 20% of the book, Rina had me like - " What the holy fuckkk" And then I was freaking out pretty much throughout the whole book.
Adrian and lia are pure fire! Their story is the best tale ever and I am so sad to say goodbye to them. What was more marvelous was the way Rina has written their tale. The timelines that she picked for us to read first was the best part and I think it played a vital role in enhancing the suspense of this story.
My heart broke so much for Adrian and Lia in this book! Especially for Adrian. His childhood glimpses were brutal and all I wanted was to hug that man. He was so cold and hot but hurting so bad as well. He would never admit it, but all he wanted was Lia's love and for her to love him as much as he did to her. But so much miscommunication and pain had ruined their relationship beyond any hope and now they might never get it back.
And then there was Jeremy! He was the cutest little angel ever and the number one fan of Lia and Adrian being together. His scenes with Adrian had me highlighting the book like crazy and I loved it so much!
Rina being Rina, gave another hint of a new couple and I hope she graces us with their story! It's going to be the best. I have been screaming this since the start of this whole trilogy, if you want an utter mindfuck and a book to completely ruin you , then just read this trilogy! It's dark and definitely has a lot of triggers, but I swear it's the best storyline ever. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
