Publisher's Summary

Dark. Mysterious. Gorgeous.

Loved by all the girls. Respected by all the guys.

As the heir to a billion-dollar empire, Kian Maston's future was promising - until the day he saved my life. Everything changed for both of us, and there was one more word that could be used to describe him: dangerous. The nation fell in love with Kian while falling in hate with me. He was sent to prison, and as far as they were concerned, it was my fault. I was forced to go into hiding until today.

Kian's being released from prison, and he should go back to being the golden boy he always was supposed to be. I should remain in hiding, living my life as normal as could be. That's what we should do....

Contains mature themes.

WARNING- this book is a TEASE

Are you kidding me???? The author built up aaaaaaall that sexual tension and didn't write a single scene??? It's written like an erotica but it DOESN'T DELIVER. Prepare for confusing, LITERARY BLUE BALLS. Why make sex and relationships one of the focal points of your story but then exclude a key interpersonal experience in their evolution? One of the few couples I actually cared about and we're shut out of their story! Be forewarned.

Here's the thing...

I was introduced to Tijan via the Fallen Crest series. I breezed through all of the books in a few weeks and must say that I enjoyed them. That's what led me to try this title. There are a few things that bothered me about the Fallen Crest series that I thought might be unique to the character ages or the characters themselves. However, after listening to Kian, I realize that this is a Tijan thing. 1. The characters are written to have a backstory that makes you either relate to or want to pull for the character. We should want these characters to have a happy ending given what they had to endure earlier in life. In theory, this should produce a full-bodied character that we can buy into. It seems that Tijan develops traumatic backgrounds for her characters, but in a way that is so obvious it seems superficial. I have trouble believing the trauma and the necessity for someone to step in to rescue them. In this way, her characters seem to fall short of their intended impact. 2. I get that Tijan writes young / new adult characters. In reality, you would expect some immaturity in the dialogue and/or actions. However, Tijan seems to want these characters to seem wise beyond their years, given their backgrounds. There are several instances where the character is supposed to say something profound, whether to make an heartfelt appeal or to "put someone in their place," but it always comes out as a childish quip. If you're going to draw attention to something that someone is going to say, especially if the impact of their words are supposed to be significant, it better be good. I really want to be able to enjoy the books, but those two things, especially the second, have become distracting and are taking away from what could otherwise be solid new adult romance novels.

Slow, Repetitive and Drawn Out

I survived to chapter 32 and gave up. The story was extremely slow with very little romance involved. Lots of saying the same thing over and over in a different way, very annoying. While the narration was decent, the female narrator sounded older than the male narrator and that added to the lack of any real connection between the hero and heroin. All in all this is a waste of credit.

Just Okay.

I'm a huge lover of Tijan, but this book was not good. It was incredibly slow, which I'm okay with sometimes if the steam makes up for it later on, but the "sexy" parts were glazed over and bad too. I didn't feel the connection between Jordan and Kian, and I never grew to like anything about Jordan's character. If you want great Tijan read the Fallen Crest series, or Hate to Love You.

You feel this one down to your toes.

I can't put my finger on exactly why, maybe it's the intensity and mystery surrounding Kian, or the emotional backstory of their whole story, but I definitely felt the emotions for the entirety of this story.
I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I was a little confused by the characters choices seeming to against who they are, but overall it didn't take away from the book much, and I would give it a recommendation.

Kian and Jordan

This is an awesome book. No one can spin a tale like Tijan that will keep you guessing and entertain you until the very end. Love the characters and the plot. Warning..this book does have some violet scenes that could trigger some so be forewarned. They are done with care and without intent to promote the violence. This also has a lesson in making quick snap judgements. Sounds yucky? This is not...it’s a wonderful, thought provoking and thoroughly entertaining novel. Please enjoy. Narration was excellent. Really makes the story come alive.

Menacing Media

There are secrets kept and backs stabbed in this dark college story. Who do you believe and how do you heal after a traumatic event especially when the media hates you? The narrators do a good job of bringing the characters to life.

A winner!

I was hooked from the beginning. Got to say I'm an avid Tijan fan, and this book did not disappoint. The story follows Jo who was viciously attacked by her foster father, and Kian who saved her, by killing him, and the fallout caused by the press and public. I fell in love with Jo from the get go, it did however, take me a while to figure out the relationship between Jo and Kian. I had so many different scenarios in my head at one point. Is Jo scared of Kian? Is Kian a danger to Jo? What is Kian's MO? Dual POV is my favourite, so I was happy to see Kian's POV in there from time to time. I found the additional characters and side stories only served to enhance the intrigue, lies, and deceit in this fantastic read. Highly recommend.
