My wife stole our baby.
Christine is beautiful, got a mouth full of sass, and she owes me a favor. So I've been cashing in to make her mine. Every week I think I'm done with her, but she pulls me back in for another night of hot, wet action. When she finally pays off her debt, she'll be giving me more than just her body.
My playboy lifestyle has a time limit. I want more. Marriage. Kids. It’s time for me to settle down. Christine's perfect. She looks like an angel but she's a devil in bed. It’s a match made in Heaven.
She thought I was joking when I dragged her to the altar. I said my vows and slipped my ring on her finger. I thought she’d make an honest man out of me.
I was wrong. She ran off without a word. Two years of my life, gone. The baby I never knew, taken from me.
But I'm not a man who ever gives up. I'll put my ring back on her finger. I'll make her mine again. And damn it, I'll give her another baby.
My husband doesn’t know about our baby...
Two years ago I met Thane. I knew he was bad news, but his devilish smile pulled me into his lap and his honeyed tongue talked me into his bed. He was pure sin, good for one night of fun, and nothing else. For one night, I forgot about his dangerous side.
He was all risk, and sleeping with him was a high. But then I got pregnant. He might have sweet-talked his way into my bed, but I wasn't going to raise my son with him.
I ran away. He never knew about the baby.
Now he's found us and he wants his family back. A bigger family... another baby.
I never wanted to be part of his life. He's taken us to a dangerous place. I’m scared for myself, scared for my child.
But when he wraps his arms around me, I always manage to forget the danger...
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.
