Cara’s father works for the Las Vegas mafia. Which means that she had a very sheltered childhood, protected from all dangers. But now she has come to an age where it’s common for the young daughters of the mafia men to get married. The husband get chosen by their fathers and that’s also the case with Cara. Cara’s father has chosen an important mafia man for Cara. Being the obedient daughter, Cara will marry him. Does she love him? No but that’s almost never the case in such marriages. But sadly, Cara’s father makes a mistake by trusting the wrong man. A mistake that gets him killed and Care a prisoner of the most dangerous man in the Las Vegas mafia. A man known by the name ‘Growl’. An assassin for the mafia, a man known for having no feelings, no mercy and no conscience. Sometimes living is a bigger punishment then being dead.
Growl knows what he is. He’s a man that survived a terrible childhood and he made sure that as an adult, people can’t hurt him anymore. He doesn’t care that this means that he’s alone all the time. It’s just the way it is. He never expected to get a gift from his boss and certainly not such a previous one. He has seen Cara on a party but he never though she would be his one day. But now he has her, he owns her and he wants her but he knows that she could be a danger for him. Because he may be the bad guy in this situation but she makes him feel things that he never felt before and everyone knows that feelings can get you in trouble and in this situation trouble could get him killed in the end!
Both, Cara and Growl, want things in life but one thing they both want is revenge. But what will happen to them when they get their revenge? Is revenge worth losing love for?
So let me start with the things that I liked about this story. I must confess that I couldn’t put the book down. The writing style of this story was fluent. Maybe strange to say but I liked Growl. He was a bad, cold man but he had his own principles. He kills and hurts people for a living but never just for fun. He was protective of Cara and I really liked that. So what about Cara? I missed a bit of emotions there.
One of the things that really surprised me was the fact that there were a lot of writing mistakes in the book. I can’t remember having this problem with Cora Reilly’s other books.
I would have LOVED an epilogue in this book and also some extra scenes about how Growl got out of the last situation. I missed some extra information at the end. It was a little bit over too soon.
Overall, the writing rhythm was there but the intense emotions just weren’t there for me . This book reminded me of a bit of ‘Bound by duty’ where I had the same feeling. Good but not fantastic.
The lead character is named "Growl" unfortunately you will find him called "Grown" at least five times. He is described as a character who is completely uneducated. Than toward the middle of the book his dialogue sounds like he went to school at English Prepatory. Also, author, quick note, for the love of Jesus do a proofread of this book before you sell it to anyone else. The typos were so extensive that toward the center I thought that possibly it was a test to see if people were really reading. Literally, there are a handful of spots where the perspective shifts back-and-forth from first person to second person in the same sentence. There's a scene at an engagement party where one character is being addressed by either two different names or one completely wrong name I'm still not sure which.
I loved these books! The violence the unguarded rules. Like a while different society. Cars was beautiful and cunning. While growl was mysterious and demanding. Yet we got to see his soft humane side. I was left wondering what would happen next and I loved every second. I wish there was more coming out to read like this!!!
