How far would you go to save someone you love? Would you give up your body? Your mind? Your heart?
I did and it cost me everything.
He says he owns me. And it's true.
I've signed over complete control of my body and life for six months to a man I don't know. Five years he's been planning this. They say revenge is a dish best served cold. But my blackmailer serves it up white hot. He's addicted to my innocence, and I'm addicted to him.
He likes to hurt me. I love to let him. He brings me to life. He sets me free. He makes my heart feel things it shouldn't.
But he also scares me. He holds the fate of my brother's life in his hands. A life behind bars for crimes I know he didn't commit. My blackmailer can't give up his revenge on my family, and I can't be with him if he doesn't. But I'm nothing more than a butterfly caught in his net. Do I really have a choice?

A Review of Echo: A Dark Billionaire Romance (Bleeding Hearts, Book 1) by A. Zavarelli Revenge is in the eye of the beholder - 5 stars This was the first book I've ever read by this author. The cover was the first thing that caught my eye, but it was the blurb that sucked me in so hard that I just had to get it. I was lucky to find it when it was on a special deal, so I snapped it up and started reading it right away. We first meet Brighton when she is sixteen and worried about her twin brother, who is going to be sent to prision the next day for something she swears he didn't do. Although Brayden keeps telling her that he killed a family by running them off the road, she just knows that he couldn't have done this and he is covering for someone. He tells her that when she gets the chance to get out of the dump they have lived in for as long as she can remember, that she needs to take that opportunity and make something of herself. He sends her outside to get away from the noise from his friends and get some air. When she goes out, she finds someone sitting in her chair, playing with her Rubiks cube. He was definitely older than them, but there was a chemical reaction between the two of them that was undeniable. She never had the chance to learn his name though, since Brayden came out just after their kiss and told her to go back inside. The stranger said they would meet again and maybe he would teach her how to play the game. Five years and three thousand miles later, we find Brighton in San Franciso. She ends up without a job or place to stay and only the kindness of a new friend to rely on. Nicole promises to get her a job with the company she works for and offers to let her stay in her apartment as well. That's when she meets her stranger again. He is the owner of the company she is now working for. It looks like things are finally looking up for her, when the other shoe drops. She gets a package from someone with proof that her brother wasn't driving the car that caused the deaths of the people he is in prison for. However, for this proof, he wants her to sign a contract saying he has complete control of her for the next six months. "How far would you go to save someone you love? Would you give up your body?

If you don't like to be left hanging, wait until the next book is out and buy them at that time. But, I definitely recommend this series. The characters are extremely well developed, with lots of secondary characters as well and the writing style of the author is phenominal.
