Lies. Betrayal. Loss.

They're all I know, see, and feel.

I don't know what is true, or a lie. I don't know who to believe or who what is real.

Broken and grieving I find refuge in an unlikely foe.

A man who claims to be my brother, who vows to protect me, and destroy those that hurt me.

But not even he can't protect me from the nightmare that is Drew Marshall.

Deranged. Psychotic. Immoral.

He broke my heart, and publicly humiliated me. Leaving me shattered and broken when I needed him most.

I should hate him, and I do, but a sick twisted part of me craves him as well.

The harder I fight to escape him, the deeper he digs his claws into me.

They say the truth will set you free, but ours didn't do that.

It locked us inside the cage, and tossed away the key.

My Review 💋

Star Rating : 4 / 5 Stars

POV : Dual

Cliffhanger : None

Hero : Drew

Heroine : Maybel

Pace of the story : Moderate

Angst Rating : 5/10

Heat Rating : 6/10

Triggers Involved : Dub con , Kidnapping , Dark romance

Plot Summary :

Maybel knew that getting with Drew was a bad idea. He never promised her anything but what she didn't expect was for him to betray her like that. Just when she had barely come out of that shock , she gets to know that she has a family now. A family she never wanted but will have to live with now.

Drew knows that what he did was messed up , but he will make Maybel understand that there was a reason why he had to break her heart. She was the one person whom he felt a connection with and he would make her understand z no matter how much time it takes.

Overall Opinion :

The second book of the duet is here! I have been waiting for this one ever since that cliffhanger for the first book which completely ruined me. I wanted that happy ending so bad!

Maybel and Drew have a very twisted tale with a lot of triggers but it was the small sweet moments that kept me hooked. I absolutely loved reading about these two and all the new side characters that had a bigger role to play in this duet. I am hopelessly waiting for Sebastian's book next now!

Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people out there.
