Review: From the moment I saw her through the window of her flower shop, something other than darkness took root inside me. Charlie shone like a beacon in a world that had long since lost any light. But she was never meant for me, a man that killed without remorse and collected bounties drenched in blood.
I thought staying away would keep her safe, would shield her from me. I was wrong. Danger followed in my wake like death at a slaughter house. I protected her from the threats that circled like black buzzards, kept her safe with kill after kill.
But everything comes with a price, especially second chances for a man like me.
Killing for her was easy. It was living for her that turned out to be the hard part.
From the very beginning, this story captured my attention. Normally when stories capture my attention, I start to lose interest at one point whether it’s at the start, middle, or toward the end. This book on the other hand kept me reading. There was character development and flowing story line.
I do have to say I fell in love with the character, Nate. I am hoping that he gets his own book because he deserves it. I love his humor; it didn’t seem forced or strange at any point. He had a charm that I absolutely loved.
As for the main characters, I loved them as well, especially Conrad. The love he develops for Charlie is passionate and agh, I just love it. Now sometimes the main female character frustrates me and it’s because of the damn decisions they make or how much they deny something and you’re just screaming “GIVE IN ALREADY!!”! Well not with this girl. Sure there were some times where I would hope that she does something but, she ends up not doing it, but it wasn’t frustrating. She ended up finding either a better way of going about something or it worked out her way anyway. Which is fine.
None of the characters really frustrated me but I do have to admit, the ending felt a little rushed. Not much but just a tad. It was in the epilogue to be specific. I felt like an idea was plastered into the first half of the epilogue, but only a little.
Overall, I really liked this read and I really hope that the author continues with this series with Nate’s side of the story.
Also (forgot to add), this book is under the genre Dark Romance & Erotica, but it didn’t really feel like erotica. There were a few sexy scenes but it wasn’t as intense as an erotica. Normally I don’t go for eroticas because it’s all about the sex and not really the story line. This book though was a perfect combination of sex and story line. Kind of like a New Adult Romance but a little more descriptive and kind of like an Erotica but more story line and less crude, I mean, “sexy” wording. Either way it was a great dark romance and I think I’m going to read more Dark Romances because this one was pretty darn good.
