The monsters of my father's world weren't ever supposed to enter mine. I was safe from them.
Adam swept into my life on a whirlwind, a dark knight, a predator stalking its prey.
He'd been hiding in the shadows all along. Waiting for me to fall into his trap.
And I fell.
I fell hard.
This wasn't ever supposed to be about her. She wasn't ever supposed to matter.
Her father needed to pay for what he'd done and there was one sure way to do it.
Take what he loved best.
I just didn't realize that in the process of destroying the girl, I'd destroy myself.

lots of action, mystery, sex, and rough sex. It was somewhat brutal at times; but had a very satisfying HEA. I highly recommend!!!
4.5 STARS! I’ve never read this author before, but this certainly is not my last book of hers. I was looking for something different. My usual go to is contemporary romance. But the blurb of this book was different than my usual reads. Edgier. Darker. And I am so glad I went outside my normal reads. I found it difficult to even put this book down. “I wanted to give it to him, wanted give him everything, and as he took from me, he gave me back all of him, letting me see him, his darkness, his weakness, his strength, his vulnerability, his pain.” Adam Smith is looking for payback. Years ago his sister suffered an unfortunate faith at the hands of a man he now despises. But killing or hurting him would’ve been too easy. It’s not enough. But breaking his heart through, his daughter, Elle Vega? That’s his plan. He wants her to suffer as his sister did. But when he comes face to face with Elle he knows she is not the only person that is about to break. Adam found that destroying Elle would mean losing a part of himself. He feels something towards her. This was never part of the plan. But as he spends time with her, they build a connection. Something he’s never felt with anyone else. She sees him. Beyond the walls he tries to put up. But it is at that time that Adam knows it can go not go on any longer. He makes a decision. His sister must not be forgotten. And Elle must pay. The writing is impeccable. The story line? Flawless. The execution of the story is mind-blowing! I held on to every word. The chemistry between Adam and Elle is unlike anything I’ve ever read. It’s so powerful and emotional. Highly erotic and sensual. While Adam wants to destroy Elle, his heart cries out for all of his wrong doing. And despite Adam’s pain, Elle still sees a light in him, even through his darkness. Their love is unconventional. Their love push boundaries. Their loves make you FEEL. Their love hurts, It's ugly. Yet it is beautiful. You may not understand the depths of love until you read their story. That out of something ugly like greed and vengeance, love can still exist. Love perseveres. It endures all. Retribution is not for the faint of heart. Nothing is as it seems. There are many twists and turns you never see coming. This story is cruel, gritty, and raw. Their love story is not an easy one. But you will be absolutely captivated. It allows you to see that love can never be confined into a box. One does not define love. The author brilliantly tackles themes that are hard to read, but she allows you to understand. The character development in this story is amazing. Your heart will race as the story unfolds. You will question your thoughts and ideas of love. How far can you go for the one you love and are you willing to lose yourself in the process? This heart wrenching story is a must read.
This story is absolutely riveting. It seeps beneath your skin, tunnels deep in your mind leading you down a tunnel to somewhere you never would realize your going until you're there. By this time you are invested in the romance, hot sex, pain, torment of these two complete opposite people named Adam and Elle. They never realized how meeting one another would change their lives so deeply and completely. An you find yourself falling down the rabbit hole with them. Knight takes you on an amazing roller coaster ride, you experience every emotion that leaves you drowning in the pages until the end. I can't begin to do this story justice with my review. Natasha has definitely found her niche, her voice and it will leave you just as breathless as the characters. Even after reading the last page it is not a story I will be forgetting any time soon.
