Going in blind is a rookie mistake. With my years of experience, you would think I should know better by now. I'm always the capable one that can handle anything that's thrown my way, until Karma throws me off my game.
My Karma comes in the form of a woman and she has to be payback for all the shitty things I've done in my life. Not just any woman but one who is determined to self-destruct. This woman is clearly going to be my downfall. Leaving me to find myself not only losing my heart, but risking my life in the process.
There's no other option than to claw our way through dilemmas that might leave the both of us wondering if our next breath could be our last. We relish in the fact that we've got nothing to lose, because let's face it... The faults of our sins will catch up with us in the end.
**This steamy, dark and twisted, standalone romance is not for the faint of heart. You've been warned.**

Another amazing story by Esther, full of action and surprises. Peacock has an ego to match his nickname, he is tough, rough and mean on the surface but underneath he still has a heart. He is a Dom through and through when it comes to sex, but if called for probably has more understanding of what a woman needs, even if that means vanilla to start with. Yesfir has had a rotten upbringing, completely controlled from a very young age and programed to be a killer on command. No love has been shown to her so trust is also an issue, it is something she has no understanding of. These two characters are well suited once they start to get to know each other and work through all the issues both have. I loved them both, I also liked Marlon and Unique especially the fireworks they create between them. I very much look forward to their story. There is some extreme violence in this story as well as sexual content, though most of that considering the BDSM angle is quite tame for one of Esther's books. But it does also include some abuse content but not in massive detail, more it being told than when it was actually happening. I love the passion that Esther writes with, you can feel the energy just bursting off the pages of her books, not just this one but all of them. I never hesitate to recommend her stories, I have followed and read from the very first and never been disappointed with any of them this one included. My enthusiasm has me chaffing at the bit to get the next one even before its finished. I now wait with great anticipation for the next one. Great read as always.
I have quickly become addicted to Esther's work. I was thrilled when she said she was releasing Peacock as I had just finished reading Ford. Once again she has effectively crossed over a character she introduced us to another amazing book! Peacock is tough, dark, strong, a tad nutty, dangerous oh so freaking HOT! He takes on a task he may regret. In the midst of the dark underworld, he’s used to fighting. Being the boss means staying in control of his circuit, his business’ and even his desires. He demands compliance from those around him. He’s never allowed for anything less. Karma was raised in the darkness she has come to rely on to keep herself in survival mode. She is fierce, strong, complex, dark and has a comparable nutty side to Peacock. When she’s faced with the unthinkable ordeal she has to figure out if it will break her beyond repair or use it to banish the demons that haunt her? She has relied on herself to get her through the chaos. When they’re put together in a favor from one crime boss to another the explosiveness that threatens to overtake them and change their worlds. They both push and pull at each other trying to make sense of their attraction. They both have missions they’re sworn to protect. But what happens when they’re priorities change and they stop fighting it, can they figure out how to take down those who want to shatter them, for good? I LOVED this book! It’s darker than the ones I usually read. However, it really spoke to me on a personal level. The amount of chaos that these two characters live through is unbelievable. I loved Karma’s inner strength and how she took control. While they’re love, actions and lives may be unconventional, it works so well. Esther effortlessly tells their stories and combines quite a few new and old characters. I can’t wait for Marlon!!!! This is a must read!
