Sophia Cova lived a quiet, normal life, shadowed in sadness
after the loss of her parents in a tragic airline accident. With her older
brother being her only living relative and her anchor, Sophia is sure she’s
destined for a brighter future. But that was until she was taken. 
Stolen from her mundane, orderly life, she was drugged, and
woke to every woman’s worst nightmare.
With only four grimy basement walls and a rancid mattress,
she loses her sense of time, and preserves what’s left of her dignity by
hurtling herself into the safety of her mind. The men, the beatings, they come
and go with no reaction, until she hears one word that sends an arctic chill
through her body. Sold.
On the eve of Sophia’s bidding, at one of the largest sexual
slavery rings in the world, all hell breaks loose in the mansion of horrors. Gunfire
and screams erupt all around her, as panic rises. 
Snatched by one monster only to be taken by another, Sophia
slowly starts to learn that not everything is as it seems. When secrets
unravel, and the twisted game of cat and mouse ensues, The Puppeteer pulls his
favorite strings and chaos brews.
Lives are lost while the clock ticks, and only time will
tell who will be killed next…

What an AMAZING dark romance!!! From the beginning, this one held me captive. Sophia has been taken against her will and we get thrown immediately into her living nightmare. It starts out very intense and very disturbing and I may have been a tad scared.


After being saved from her kidnappers, things settle down a bit but Sophia starts to realize that things are not as they seem. She realizes there is so much she doesn’t understand. The charater development was so well done and I enjoyed trying to fit pieces of the puzzle together with Sophia. Who should she trust? Is she truly safe???


Then there is Diavolo Creed Sabella… the devil himself who Sophia cannot help but be drawn towards. He is danger personified but Sophia cannot deny his magnetism. The attraction is palpable and while Creed may be a silent, deadly threat to others, he is a fierce protector for Sophia. He tries to push Sophia away for a long time because he wants to protect her from even himself. However, their animal magnetism is not to be denied.



It seems like Sophia is safe for now and she is in a good place with Creed. And then BAM! Her world turns upside down again. The twist was not completely unexpected but I was not prepared for everything that followed this turning point in the story.

If you’re a dark romance lover and a fan of anti-heroes, just go grab this one now but be warned there is a HUGE cliffy. I highly recommend!
