The Hero(s): Elijah North – worked in Special Ops for the corrupt Lieutenant Colonel Mark Jefferson. Elijah was captured and imprisoned by Adam Bisset (a.k.a. Adam Black) in a church basement in France along with the heroine, Holly. He then took her to a safe house and imprisoned her to keep her safe. He had stolen diamonds that he hid in London Frank’s backpack and everybody seems to want those diamonds.
The heroine: Holland Frank – in Europe to find her sister London who is a travel blogger. London went dark after getting the stolen diamonds from Elijah. After London helps Holly escape from the Safe house, they go on the run for a year, hiding out from Adam, Elijah and the people London owes money. London is a cocaine addict.
The Love Story: Elijah wants to protect Holly and he wants her to be his. However, he doesn’t think he deserves her. They have a very erotic and somewhat twisted relationship. Holly is much darker than you would expect for a celebrated YA novelist.
This story was suspenseful, steamy and so good. I love Elijah and Holly. They are definitely made for each other. The romance was perfect, I liked these two in Diamond in the Rough but they were even better in this book. The story was great, the conflicts in the story were believable and worked well to move the storylines forward and the cliffhanger at the end of this book was even better than the last. I can’t wait to read the next one and I hope Skye Warren is a fast writer. I just loved every minute of this book!
In this book we got to find out more about Elijah’s background and both his brothers (Liam and Josh) were in this book. I looked up Skye Warren’s previous books and there are books about both Liam and Josh, so I added those to my TBR and hope to read them as soon as I get some time. Skye knows how to do dark romance very well.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
