I am starting to believe that Lexi C. Foss is not of this world. This book is her first journey into the world of romantic suspense, and she mastered it so thoroughly that I am convinced that she's magical. Killian is so deliciously dark, and such a such a super hot bad boy with a penchant for playing with knives that you will want to play with him long after the story ends. Amara is such a beautifully broken heroine that watching him heal her is equal parts heart breaking and heart mending. The story has some dark themes, and deals with human trafficking, so be warned if those are triggers for you. But if you enjoy watching people find love even when they are in dark places, read this one today, and you won't be sorry.
