Publisher's Summary

Cold, ruthless.

I’m Paulo García’s monster, and I’d swallowed that bitter pill whole, learned to deal with it...until she stormed into the house like some avenging Valkyrie. 

Brave, beautiful.

Nicky just wants to save her brother. She showed up with an envelope full of cash and a smart mouth and found herself in a den of monsters. I wish I could say I was the best of them, I wish I could protect her - but I’m far from perfect.

SORRY.. BUT IT'S A NO FROM ME

In my Romance library, are audiobooks from a wide variety of sub-genres - all hand-picked from Audible’s extensive virtual Romance aisles.. and included in my library are a fair few ‘dark’ ones purchased whenever I’ve been in the mood for something gritty and raw. There are some great ones and some not so great “meh” ones.. and unfortunately, this dual POV book, falls into the latter category.. it wasn’t all bad - but it wasn’t all good either. This felt like a cruel gang drama with suspense, violence, criminal intentent, rape.. and just too much sex. But the narrators were good.

Nicky’s brother is hospitalized after being badly beaten by a Cuban Gang who he owes money to.. but unsuspecting naive (... or maybe just stupid) Nicky mistakingly thinks it's a person not a gang and storms to their house to pay the debt.. unaware that she’s about to get trapped in a nightmare. Beautiful, feisty and brave Nicky tries to escape.. but instead she becomes a prisoner in a dangerous world of threats, secrets, gang politics and sex.. and for Nicky, there will be no escape.. except maybe her death. However, one amongst the monsters who all want her stands out.. Andre, he’s cold, aloof and darkly dangerous.. and he wants to possess her. He also wants to protect her, sexually abuse her, choke her and let his violent darkness out. But, this monster has secrets too, he has a twisted evil leader.. and he makes a deal with the devil - but it’s Nicky who will ultimately lose. There will be revelations, bloodshed and death will come for some.

Worth a credit? Throughout all of my other dark listens, there’s always been an invisible line not to cross.. consent is that line for me - and usually it’s been sought and given. However, I felt ‘very uncomfortable’ with this brooding alpha’s shady actions - even if she did enjoy it in the end. And that disrespect disappointingly lurked in the background of my mind corrupting the story which sadly put me off the hero. I also didn’t feel any special connection between them other than that of prisoner and abuser.. and my mind unfortunately started to wander. So, for me, it’s a NO not creditworthy.. but we’re all different and you may be shouting greatness after listening to this book - and that’s all good too.
