I joined the cloister to find the truth. But I've discovered so much more, and the darkness here is seducing me, pulling me down until all I can think of is him. Adam Monroe, the prophet's son, a dark prince to an empire that grows by the day. He is tasked with keeping me safe from the wolves of the outside world. But the longer I stay at the cloister, the more I realize the wolves are already inside and under the prophet's control. If Adam discovers the real reason I'm here, he'll bay for my blood with the rest of them.

I have mixed feelings about this story. I love a dark book but not sure how I feel about some of the things that happened in this book all in the name of the Prophet.

My life was perfect - until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me. My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed. Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite. I can’t stand him. He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all.

This is such a great second chance romance. Things don't start off good for Milo and Dani first meeting. Milo is arrogant and feels entitle, but Dani has no problem putting him in his place. Dani's kids were great. Sophie Eastlake and Shane East do a great job narrating and giving us a sexy British accent.

The brother known as Hound has a reputation. He's all about cracking heads, having a good time, and when the Chaos Motorcycle Club needs someone to do the tough job, they call on him. But Hound has a secret. He fell in love with a woman years ago. She's untouchable. Unattainable. And even when her status changes, for Hound, it remains the same.

This is a great addition to the Chaos series. I loved Hound and Keely. All the waiting between the two was so worth it. Hound is such a sweetheart and protector. I love how he cared for everyone he loved. Dutch and Jagged grew up to be such amazing men.

Thirty days ago, my boss, Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn't refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a "very generous" severance package. The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I've secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn’t surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he’s a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview. Yes, he’s impossibly hot - but he’s also an arrogant jackass - so...no thanks. But after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I’m somehow offered the chance to play Zane’s girlfriend to help promote his new dating website....

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again. After 15 years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another. I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side. All I wanted was for him to come back to me. Then, Jackson Emery appeared. He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart. We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love.

This is my first book from this author and it won't be my last. Although this story has some heart-wrenching moments, I think it was well balanced with some feel good moments. We have two broken people that find their way to each other. My only gripe is that I wished Grace didn't try to please others so much, especially her mother. This story has loyalty, back-stabbing, douche of an ex, supportive sister, nagging mother just to name a few. Narrators did a great job.

Célian Laurent. Manhattan royalty. Notorious playboy. Heir to a media empire...and my new boss. I could have impressed him, if not for last month's unforgettable one-night stand. I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory - namely, his wallet. Now he's staring me down like I'm the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I'm supposed to take it. But the thing about being Judith "Jude" Humphry is I have nothing to lose. Brooklyn girl. Infamously quirky. Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it doesn't keep him from coming out. My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn't know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target. My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I'm the only monster who can save her.

This was an awesome series. This review is for all three books. I devoured all three books back to back. This book is about a teenager that was gang raped and seek revenge from her rapists. Along Sela's journey she finds love with the hot and sexy Beckett North. The sex scenes are off the charts. Sawyer Bennett books are definitely a winner. Narrators did an excellent job.
