Don't go into this book thinking it’s all about the H/h. Turns out to be a really dark suspense involving a serial killer and the past events happening between the two.

That being said, it was a real dark read that went where most books don't and you are not left with a good feeling when it's over. However, there is a kind of HEA so don't get too bummed out.

This book pushed the boundaries of right and wrong and made me question exactly what I would put up with for someone I loved, and what would make a person do and accept behaviors in others. This book went deep into what made the characters behave the way they did, and along the way there was a good secondary plot line that ended up taking first place in the end.

Beware if you are thinking this is going to be a sequel where the messed-up hero from the first book is reformed by h
is woman and ends up seeing the error of his ways.

Unlike other authors who do this annoying bait and switch getting us all into a guy that has a dark side or fetish and making the end game being about changing him into some kind or White Knight (ahem...I am talking to you Ms. James), Lime doesn't change the hero's nature. However, she makes the more difficult and truer choice of simply letting him grow along the lines earlier set.

The heroine's true motives and personal history which were unknown to us in the previous book--due to it being written in the oft-unused first person-male POV--are brought to light and add depth to the character, allowing us to understand her motives and true feelings.

However, the romance, however twisted it is, took a back seat to the secondary plot which about halfway through the book ends up becoming the central story. I will not elaborate on it, but you can probably guess at the whodunit aspect and if you have half a mind, you will figure it out.

Regardless if you figure out whodunit and what is going on, you will still not believe it would go as far as it did. Right up to the last page you will be waiting for some kind of "Ha-Ha! I was just kidding! It really didn't happen that way!" Don't hold your breath. It does happen that way and no one came away completely unscathed. Basically, the ending was the best of a bad situation.

Now I need to read some light and fluffy.... Where is my copy of "Mastered" by Lily White?

Where to start? This book is not at all what I thought it would be. I was expecting something a little different and for that reason I am left wanting more. It wasn't as dark as some other books that I have read, but in saying that it is still no 'hearts-and-flowers' love story either. Yes there is a love story in this dark twisted world.

I felt that the story was a bit slow, yet for some reason I keep waiting to read to find out what would happen next. I really can't explain it. The story was still gripping enough to keep reading despite the pace the story was going for me. Maybe because it was in the male POV and I don't get to read many of them.

Oh the definitions at the start of each chapter were also something different by the author and very entertaining. It gave a great insight to the story and characters.

The main character, Aeron was an interesting one to say the least. There was just something different about him that I wanted to keep reading to discover his secrets. And what a secret it was. Totally didn't see any of the ending coming. That was a nice little surprise by the author.
