Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: October 22, 2019
Captive. Pet. Lover. Pawn…
Darkness lives inside Damir Ravnikar, and that darkness craves one thing: me. Rich, ruthless, and handsome as sin, Damir’s promised me the world to make up for my life’s myriad disappointments.
But his promise comes with a price.
Damir intends to use me to hunt down his double-crossing brother. With every jewel, every kiss, I can feel myself losing my morals, my freedom and even my sanity. Because darkness lives inside me, too. He’s laying my deepest secrets bare, and there’s nothing I can do to stop him.
My name is Bethany, and I’ve fallen into the lap of luxury.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Contains dark romantic themes. This book is NOT a standalone and is intended to be read after COME TO DADDY. No cliffhanger.
So that was mind blowing??
I knew this book was going to be a different kind of trip and boy was I right.
We get to see the in depth workings of Damir Ravinkar, who was honestly lowkey unhinged in CtD. I’ll be honest, I liked him but didn’t know that I’d love madly in love with him by the end of LoL. I mean he is a ruthless killer without any doubt but he is also secretly a teddy bear? I do not know how Brianna Hale perfected that duality but she did and my heart can’t take it.
Bethany is my favourite. Sure she is freaky and her kinks scare me a little but she stood neck to neck with Damir and was absolutely his match. I have so much respect for her because she finessed him so hard but she did it in a way that made him fall in love with her. WE STAN A FREAKY QUEEN!!!
This story was thrilling from the start and 100% fast paced. The way Damir just walks through life leaves me scared and in awe of his audacity. The thing I love most about this story is that it pushes a LOT of boundaries sexually and psychologically without being overbearing at all.
Brianna Hale is a master at writing beautiful, broken and complex characters who make a permanent home in your heart within a few pages. The last 10% of this book made my heart the happiest of places.
