Publisher's Summary

I know I'm never going to change. I was born in the darkness, and that's exactly where I'll remain.

Rome is sweet, gentle, and vanilla. But I'll change all of that. I'll show her who I really am.

And slip that black diamond onto her finger.

Black Diamond

What did you like best about this story?

This book is amazing. Ms. Quinn has the ability to make you feel the passion and pain of the characters. You live and die with them.

What does Michael Ferraiuolo and Lia Langola bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Perfect narrators M Ferraiuolo and Lia langola delivering their lines.

Another cliffy

The cliffhanger isn't bad but I can't wait for the next book. This series is sexy and interesting, exciting and fun.

Michael really stepped it up for this one. His voice was gruffer when it needed to be and softer when the timing was right for that. Lia Langola was perfect.

One of the best series I have listened to.

Calloway and Rome are back but this time trouble takes a hold of them. Their relationship is shaken by skeletons they both are hiding. This is one intense story. I know I screamed No very loudly a few times as the story unfolded. It can take your breath away and make you so angry you want to kick something. Victoria Quinn really can capture your heart and emotions as you struggle right along with the couple.

The narration was impeccable. Lia Langola truly captures Rome and all of her emotions. She helps the reader ride the emotional roller coaster Rome is on right along with Rome. Her voice is exactly how I imagined Rome to sound. Michael Ferraiuolo is the perfect Calloway. His voice melts your heart as Calloway struggles with his skeletons. How either one of these narrators read this book calmly and unshaken is amazing. There is so much emotion in this book, I know I would not be able to keep a steady voice.

I want and need more!!!!

**I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.**

When I first got this book I didn't realize it was # 2 in a series and I hadn't listened to the 1st book. It didn't matter, I wasn't lost, I was intrigued! I loved it! it was HOT!!!! but more than just ear candy, great story, great character development. I want more detail and plan on picking up all the books in the series.

Get this book!

quarter of it is for the drama and the rest... s3x

nothing much on chapters 1-10, s3x of course is essential in the story coz of the SBDM thing but too much is making it slow and you skip some chpters coz well nothings happening but s3x, just until later chapters where the story gets drama, conversations, conflicts... yes it's a series but still the ending was too short...

clarity and emotion on narrators part is superb for me.

Fantastic

This series really did it for me! It’s been hard for me to find books in this category that are not only smoking hot but actually have a good story and decent character development so I was really excited to have found this series. I don’t understand why so many don’t like Michael Ferraiuolo because I love his voice!! It’s super sexy 🔥I highly recommended

Sparks are flying but not fast enough

Sparks are flying but not fast enough. That’s the only thing about this series, I thought the second book would move at a faster pace. Well, all they wanted to do was screw. And fight for power lol. From the sound of it, the sex was really good. Rome finally told Calloway she loves him. He started in on how from the beginning there would be no ties. But he soon finds out he can’t live with out her. They are both smitten by each other. I love how Rome keeps him in line. She finally reveals why she is against BDSN. He finally admits about Ruin. Will he stay away just to keep Ruin, or will he give his life to Rome and maybe marry her. They are both scared and this is the first relationship they’ve been through. I loved how Rome somewhat tamed his temper and mad him soften up.
