I was naïve to think my marriage to Luka Catano might work.
I was infatuated with him from afar…
Until I met him.
He loved the challenge of his next conquest, anyone would do...
A wife was never something he wanted.
Torturous was not a strong enough word to describe how I felt when I was in a room with Luka. Besides hating nearly every word that came out of his mouth, I also drowned with lust every time I looked at him.
At times I thought he might feel the same.
But nothing prepared me for what his family would make me become.
*There will be four books in the Kingdoms of Sin series. Each book can be read as a standalone though there are interconnecting characters.*
Whoa baby! This book… it’s a fun, sexy, angsty, roller-coaster ride full of drama, feels and characters that make you want to throw your kindle. I loved every minute of this story and I can’t wait for you to read it.
OMG! THIS BOOK. THIS FREAKING BOOK.
I loved it.
I hated it.
I wanted to throw my kindle against the wall.
And OMG! I LOVE feeling like this. This is the good kind of conflicted. This is the I FEEL SO MANY THINGS conflicted. And let me tell you…. The angst, the hero, will make you feel crazy. LMAO! I mean, I have NO WORDS for Luka. I’m still processing all of his drama.
But honestly, this story was like a drug. I started reading and I couldn’t put it down. I read it in less than a day. It was so intoxicating. So beyondddd addicting. The characters… GAH! I HATED the hero for most of the book. The heroine made me want to shake her. But Willow’s writing was so fantastic. I want MORE of this series. I want to keep reading about some of the other characters. I want MORE of this world. It reads like a soap opera royal drama. Tons of scandal and angst and sex and lies and mystery and characters that drive you to feel all the things. It’s an intense back and forth, a juicy read.
If you LOVE books that have flawed characters, that have a messy, chaotic, wild, intriguing storylines, that have dramatic moments, I think you’ll love this. Even with my dislike of the hero, I absolutely LOVED the drama of it all. It’s not deep, it’s not life changing, it’s just pure addicting, romantic drama and I’m absolutely IN for that! I’m also so HERE for more books in the Kingdoms of Sin series. So deliciously addicting.
“You’ve outdone yourself,” he says. “Which Eden do I have tonight? Will you bite or will you purr?”
“I could ask you the same thing.”
He holds his hands out. “What do you think? Am I suitable to be by your side?”
“You clean up okay.”
He smirks and steps closer to me, pulling me flush against him. “Keep playing the cool act. I know it shouldn’t, but it gets me so hard.” He presses into me to prove his point.
“Have you been drinking already?” I frown.
“This is me stone-cold sober.”
“So there’s nothing to excuse your behavior.”
His hands go lower and when he still feels my skin, he frowns. His hands go lower still until they find material, which happens to be hugging my backside. He thrusts into me again and leans his forehead against mine.
“You don’t want to excuse my behavior. You like me best this way. Hot and salivating over you. Admit it.”
I shake my head. “You need to take a step back.”
He exhales a shuddering breath and drops his hands, stepping back. “We’re going to be late. Let’s go.”
I shiver from the loss of his hands and the chill in his voice. I can’t win with him.
