When Mia Turner's life becomes tethered to a mysterious billionaire who she swears is the devil himself, she knows that she must break free. It doesn't matter if everything about him - those sinful lips, those pale-gray eyes, that perfect male body - keeps her awake at night. He's evil, and she has to get away.
But when this man, known simply as King, suddenly disappears, Mia will discover that she's not home free. Because without King, she's no longer safe from his ruthless, depraved, power-hungry social circle.
To survive, Mia will have to conceal King's absence and walk a mile in the evil man's twisted, cruel shoes. What she discovers will leave her more terrified and her heart more conflicted than she ever imagined.
Contains mature themes.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
With King's disappearance at the end of book 1 Mia has been forced into a terrible and terrifying situation.... Vaughn and the 10 Club will be able to claim all of King's possessions - including her. So she can either give in to her fate or fight and call their bluff so what sort of trouble will the feisty woman get herself into? Well, the best and the worst because as the plot deepens rather than clear up questions it throws in more confusing ones and the only constant thought is that, despite everything, Mia and King should be together..... but you just can't imagine how.
King is beautiful, sexy, evil, tortured, charismatic, charming and cruel and Mia is brave, funny, kind and ever hopeful that she will win despite all the odds against her. The plot now delves much deeper into the paranormal and has a 'hate to want him' vibe and still no out and out romance or sex just sensuality, heavy petting and a sense that these two souls should be together. But the plot doesn't suffer because of this as you know it's building and it's going to be awesome between them. And then, just when you think you can settle down and like King again, he shocks you with another terrible twist that'll leave you reeling. Great secondary characters. Told from Mia's POV which often turns tragic or humorous and again Helen Wick delivers a good performance.
Worth a credit? Although there is no actual romance you know it's building and I have a lot of faith in Mimi Pamfiloff to make book 3 epic. There is however plenty of intrigue, suspense, mystery, twists and pulse-pounding weirdness in this entertaining listen that'll have you desperate to get to book 3. Very creditworthy and Hallelujah I'm off to listen to their finale.
I wish this phone had gone another way. It was really repetitive which is the reason for the four stars. The characters are intriguing the storyline is good almost great.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I really enjoyed book one. Perhaps that is why I give this book only 3 stars. It is a continuation of Mia and King's complicated relationship. I thought too much time was spent to make it a stand alone by explaining everything that happened in book 1. Half way through it did take a turn for development which kept me half-way interested. I have high hopes that book 3 will make this trilogy worth the credits I used. In my opinion this book is worth a sale ... I would save the credit. The developments toward the end of this story is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 2.
