I was intrigued by the premise of the book, and I enjoy darker, more 'real' types of books, but these books go way past dark. A lot goes on, including rape, incest, kidnapping, torture...and that was just book 1. :/ The middle two books were too much for me, I would have broken down and begged for them to shoot me in the head rather than endure the torture, they were very, very difficult to get through. I was desperate for something good to happen, and finally it does. There's no way there could ever really be a HEA after what these two have gone through; they will have to have a lifetime of therapy to be able to move on. I have no doubts that they'll stay together, but I'm not sure their lives are ever going to be termed happily ever after.
Read at your own risk, and if you have triggers, please stay away. Dark, dark, dark.
I'll be rating the first two books fairly, but since this is the bundle I also purchased, I'm also giving my personal opinion. The problem here, is that the hero wasn't a hero after all. Both of them had their flaws after all, but her reasons were valid in my point of view, not excusable, but valid nonetheless.
Every time he vow to protect her, he fail. EVERY SINGLE F..CKING TIME!! Even the last one, when he let his said friend use her as the PRIZE. Wasn't supposed to be that she will only be there just for show? Why didn't he go nuts or protective when his "friend" gave the order to strip her and chained her?
At least the half-brother had the decency to keep her just for him, whatever the damage, freaking Mason was worse, because every time she was with him, she end up being abuse by other man besides him.
Didn't she ran away when she found out she was going to be used as trophy? That the only reason Mason when after her was because her brother was back? WTF? How come she was all brave in front of her brother at the end, but she didn't even freaking refuse when they order her to strip?
What kind of end was that? A freaking cliffhanger after 4 books? For me this is it. I had enough of this series.
A man that couldn't even protect his woman? A man that sees her just as a piece of meat? A man that finds pleasure only on her pain?
Rafe and Alex, not your average couple. Some people have this deep need to be controlled and mastered. That is Alex. She is deeply masochistic and Rafe is : Well Rafe is a bit on the sadistic side although he did and still does have some morals, albeit very few.
Rafe is out for vengence against Alex for something she was forced into doing as a young girl. Through a series of intricately woven twists and turns Rafe learns of the cruel things perpetrated on Alex and through these different plots in the story he comes to realize that he always loved Alex. Now it’s an all consuming burning passion, but he still has that sadistic side to him which actually comes in handy as a means to help curb Alex’s need to self mutilate when she feels out of control.
This is not a love story by any means but it is a story about about two people who come to terms with their inner selves , realize their pasts shaped the adults they have grown into, and have come to terms with who they are. Deeply flawed and unconventional Rafe and Alex will never be your average pair of love birds.
This series grips you from page 1. I absolutely loved it
I can wait for book 5 to come out!
A twisted dark gem filled to the brim with delicious wrongness that had my little black heart reeling!! Emotional, erotic, enticing, and intoxicating! Head over heels for this series from page 1!!!
Rampant Book 2: 5 Stars
Takes you in its clutches and won't release you unchanged. Not for the faint of heart, pushing limits all over the place, and that's what kept me transfixed. It reaches deep into the character's personalities and keeps you entranced by their every move. It made me cringe, but I couldn't look away. Real, gritty, raw, addictive!!!
Fervent Book 3: 4 Stars
Completely unhinged and twisted!!! This couple is crazily damaged and the Author ups the ante in this installment. Absolutely a heart pounding ride filled with deranged, dark goodness filled with betrayal, revenge, and dirty goodness!!
Vagrant Book 4: 4 Stars
A culmination of all that happened in the first three books, but not as explosive I'm sad to say. While this couple still burned up my kindle with their dark deliciousness, pushing limits and breaking their own barriers, it felt as if something was missing. While I still enjoyed it, it seemed to veer more into the emotions of the couple rather than tying up loose ends, which was ok. Still an amazingly dark and twisted series that will remain with me for a long time!!!
