This story contains some topics/ situations that might be triggering to some readers. 

This is my first Monica James book and I am thoroughly impressed.

This story is DARK dark. The romance in this is messed up and convoluted. But there is just something about Bull and Lily that makes you root for their HEA. Unfortunately, we are not there yet and after that cliffhanger we have a long bumpy ride.

I actually really like Bull, even though I do not approve of some of his life choices. At the end of the day, he is just a man who does not know what to do with this immense grief that resides in his heart. He thinks that revenge is the only option. I am just hoping that he finds his peace.

Lily was actually really strong in the beginning and I almost warmed up to her, but then I just really could not understand why she becomes so weak when it comes to her past. But I really loved the way she threatened Bull, so she has that going on for her. I like that she makes him mad.

I would like to say that some parts of this book were a bit ott for me, but THAT twist was one heck of a game changer. I definitely did not see it coming and I just LOVE the angst and pain it adds to the story. I am really looking forward to see where the story goes.

4 Stars!

For twelve long years, I’ve breathed, I’ve bled for only one thing…


Four men took something from me, something which can never be replaced. That one night changed the lives of so many and taught me that monsters are real.

But I also learned I’m the biggest monster of them all.

Nothing and no one will stand in my way of redemption because those men…they’re now three. The fourth—he is the reason they call me Bullseye. They can run, but sooner or later, I’ll find them, just as I did with their friend. They’re already dead…they just don’t know it yet.

My plan was simple until I met her. A fierce tiger who had the power to break my heart. Lucky for me…she can’t break what’s already broken. I am no longer a man because the world is a jungle, and we’re all just animals—ready to tear one another apart.
