Charlie is a sick bastard.
He likes to kill and he’s made his fortune doing it.
Years ago he nearly died losing his leg, falling into one debt money couldn’t erase.
Now when the debt collector calls, Charlie doesn’t expect it to bring him to his knees.
It was supposed to be a quick in and out job: retrieve the girl and return to his life.
But there’s something about Vera that has him tied.
Vera’s been kidnapped.
Tortured and abused more times than she can count, she fully believes she’s going to die in her cement prison.
She has no idea what to expect when Charlie shows up to save her, but she quickly discovers he’s no angel.
There’s a dark side to Charlie that instead of igniting fear, makes Vera want to turn off the lights and see what lurks inside.
They both know that if they keep playing with fire, one of them is going to get burned. What Charlie soon learns is Vera isn’t playing with fire.
Vera is fire.
Warning: Contains graphic violence and sex. Has disturbing situations that may be a trigger for some.

I'm torn with how to rate this book because while it's really good there were parts that were pretty choppy. MCG did a great job with the difficult subject matter of rape. It's slated as a dark romance but it's so much more than that. It's about one woman's quest for vengeance and her figuring out who she really is and how to accept that. Yes there is love and romance, and it's heartbreaking and wonderful. Dark and beautiful.
