Why Do We Like This Book?

Marissa Recommends
I just finished this one and wow, it really surprised me. I thought it was going to be super dark and twisty, but it was more romantic suspense with an almost sweet (but dirty) love story. Yes, there were some dark-ish scenes but you get a lot of well written story, good side characters and plenty of sexy times. It is almost 600 pages, but I never felt it dragged or that a bunch of scenes were written for filler. It all flowed perfectly to the big climax and a sweet epilogue. I wouldn’t mind reading about a couple of the main side characters either. [October 2015]

Favorite Quotes

Every inch of her was cut from the very depths of his fantasies.  It was as though someone had reached deep inside him and crafted a woman far more dangerous than any weapon on earth and the only one she could potentially destroy was him.
“Damn it, Juliette. Stop.”
Panting and dizzy, she stared at him. “What?”
He nipped at her lip with his teeth, hard enough to make her whimper and reach for him.
“Whatever the hell it is you’re doing to me.”
“… the thought of something happening to you is the only thing that can break me.  You’re my weakness, Juliette.  You’re my Achilles’ heel, the key to bringing me down and I can’t lose you.”

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

One: Sign the contract.

Juliette Romero had a debt to pay, a debt that wasn’t even hers. But it was the only way to keep her family safe and all she had to do was sell her body and soul to the devil.

Killian McClary wasn’t called the Scarlet Wolf for nothing. He’d been the head of the McClary Organization since he was fifteen and had built a reputation for being a ruthless son of a bitch when it came to running the city’s underbelly, not to mention merciless when it came to punishing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. Only results. Juliette, with her shy smiles and hot little body was a weakness unlike any other and yet he was powerless to resist one more taste of her sweet flesh.

Two: Become his for a year.

When given the choice between her life or her body, what could Juliette possibly do, but submit to a man whose very name invoked fear in the hearts of others? She just never anticipated falling for his dark, hungry eyes and clever hands, or the way the beast in him made her feel oddly safe and cherished.

But what will happen when Killian’s dark past finally catches up to him and threatens the woman he can no longer imagine himself without? What will happen when both sides find themselves caught in a web of passion, lies and broken promises? Can Juliette tame the wolf or will her love for him devour them both?

Three: Don’t fall in love.

Boundaries will be crossed, loyalties will be tested and lives will be changed forever.

This book is NA and intended for a mature audience.

About The Author
My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
