Sometimes, we lose ourselves in the devastation of love.
But sometimes, we find ourselves there, too.
Avery Capulet. The forbidden fruit. The apple of her Daddy’s eye. The newly-minted Queen of California’s criminal underworld. And now, the missing girl nobody can find.
I know where she is, though. Kneeling before me, tears spilling from her eyes as the last bit of her dignity bleeds from her. I don’t want the pound of flesh that the girl who betrayed me delivers, but I don’t have a choice.
Avery Capulet. Moaning underneath me, as pain merges with pleasure, skin to skin as we do what we can to survive. In the dark, in the wild, we’re like animals. I try not to love her. I try so damn hard.
But the war waged inside my heart was won a long time ago.
By a girl who should have known better than to trust a man like me.
Rome Montague. The boy from my past. The man in my nightmares. The dark, secret lover who makes me feel things I never knew I could feel.
Love and pain can both drive you insane. I fight, and I fight, until all I can do is surrender. Be pulled under. Submit, until I barely recognize myself.
Rome Montague. When he looks at me, I forget the lies that destroyed our past. When he makes me come apart underneath his touch, I forget where we are, and that a faceless enemy pulls our strings like marionettes.
The outside world beckons bright, teasing us with mirages of safety and respite.
But the light of day is a cruel lie.
Because once we find a way out of the dark, we both realize that our nightmare has only just begun.

My Review 💋
Star Rating : 4 /5 Stars
POV : Dual
Cliffhanger : Yes
Hero : Rome Montague. He is cold yet soft. He won’t admit it but he cares a lot about Avery. He was ruthless and I loved him a lot!
Heroine : Avery Catapult. She was the Ice queen and was merely an innocent in the hands of the villain. I loved the fight in her and no matter what happened to her , she still kept her head up and did whatever she could do to survive!
Pace of the story : Fast
Angst Rating : 6/10
Heat Rating : 8/10
Triggers Involved : Non Con , Knife Cutting , Abuse

They have a lot of things they need to do starting with vengeance and finding out who is that person behind the mask who hurt them beyond measure, that is when they both escape. It is now a battle of death and escaping to finally overcome their fears and take their revenge.
Overall Opinion :
After that cliffhanger of the first book , I was honestly excited to see that the second book was coming soon!! I can't’ wait for the final read and can’t even tell you guys how amazing this installment was! The ending of this book was also another huge cliffhanger that had my jaw on the floor and I still haven;t recovered from it, I need the last part asap because my brain is going crazy over this one simply marvelous!
This trilogy has a lof of triggers in it that a person needs to keep in mind , it has a detailed rape scene and lots of knife cutting. There is mild torture too and it’s totally messes up your mind in the best way possible. I can guarantee that all the dark romance lovers will love this book and that cliffhanger at the end will leave you wanting more and in awe of this author just like me!
Final Verdict :
An amazing follow up of the first book!
Dark as hell and the above mentioned triggers need to be kept in mind.
I am so addicted to this series and there is no way I am letting this one go until I get my hands on the last book of this series!
