Plot Summary :
Jericho Has only one thing on his mind. Revenge. Killing the people responsible for his ruin so that his little daughter can live her life freely and peacefully. The biggest target in his eyes is the Bishops. They ruined him years ago. Took something from him. Almost killed his daughter. And now he is back from his self imposed exile to take from them. Starting with the pretty Isabelle Bishop. He will take her. Ruin her. And make her brother watch as he destroys the very legacy of the bishops. There is no happy ending when it comes to him and her. Only annihilation.
This is like two different men. Her father. My devil.”
Isabella does not know the scary man who came to take her from her home. He is twice her size with two coloured eyes and he might be the most prettiest and dangerous thing she has ever seen. That does not stop her shivering when she sees the raw hate he has for her. Jericho is what they call him. Her new jailer. The one who says he will break her. Because for him all bishops are the same. Untrustworthy.
Overall Opinion :
Omg Natasha. That cliffhanger, LIKE WHY? 🥲🥲🥲 I need the next book now!!!
I have been reading Natasha for a while now and I always love her books but there was one thing special about this one because it was based on my favorite concept by her,The Society! Jericho was a part of the society so we got to see Santiago and Ivy who starred in her Society trilogy, another top read of mine.
Jericho and Isabella have a unique tale off suffering and pain. They are both suffering but are stuck in a loop. Jericho says he has moved on from his past but that is wrong. All he wants is to avenge the ones who took from him. And he will start with Isabella. No matter how much he loves her tears, her pain and her begging. He will destroy her.
I just need the second so bad because omg, that ending was something else! I just loved it so freaking much. The whole story with Jericho and his scenes with his little daughter just made me swoon so much. Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people. This book has a few triggers like dub con and more so please keep those in mind before picking this one up.
