It’s not enough that some rich guy comes into the bar the heroine works in and takes her as part of his payment on a debt. Then decides she’s the one, but keeps her on the unknown and does her in the most scandalous ways. Then said rich guy basically kidnaps her to marry her in some secret organization where she has no choice. Then fucks her in the next room where the men cheer her on. Yep the set up goes even further downhill after that. Why do I stick around and finish these books?
Christine is barely making ends meet working in a bar when she meets a rich guy who’s into her, but she isn’t buying it. Well, Thane takes her into the backroom where he makes her give him a blowjob. Thane keeps stringing her along, taking her places but at no time does he tell her he is going to claim her as his wife.
So they have a ceremony in the secret society, The Syndicate, where Thane’s family is high up in the organization. But Christine is a little high willed and escapes only to find out she is pregnant. For over a year she lives and moves to escape Thane finding her. So what’s a guy to do when his religion and society have a coup and his family isn’t on top of the pyramid any more? Fake his death to get his “wife” to come to his burial.
You got it. He captures her and the baby and brings them back to the place that has seen so much bloodshed and deep hatred. The story goes on with plots of intrigue, general fucking the wife without regard to what she wants and taking over their lives. The story was so far fetched, not even really enjoyable and the sex left me feeling cold more than anything.
The story is told from both sides of the relationship in first person, which I detest. The characters were so flawed and contradicting even their personalities. Overall, I just didn’t like it if you couldn’t tell. This was the second book in the series, and maybe knowing more about this society may have helped, but I can’t bring myself to read any further in this series. It can be read as a standalone if you want.
So nope, I don’t recommend it. Returning it to Kindle Unlimited.
