"This is Samael and Freya's story or Angel as he calls her. Their story won't be for everyone but if you like them dark, steamy and so full of soul destroying love then this is the book for you. Light and dark need each other to survive and without one the other does not exist and this story shows us how true that is. This story broke me but in such a good way. Can't wait for the next book in this series. Hands down an amazing five star read."

"It was dark, but it has the fair amount of romance, passion and powerful love." - Becca (Goodreads Reviewer)
"Angel and Samael's relationship is not conventional in any way, but their light and darkness create an electric chemistry which is enchanting. It is definitely not a fairytale, but it is unbelievably raw and honest. One cannot deny their complex feelings for one another." - Cat (The Reading Cat)

This story centers on Sam and Angel. Sam comes from a family of doms that trains girls in pain and pleasure, and that is where much of the darkness im this story comes from. The situation in which Sam and Angel meet is unfortunate, especially the circumstances which bring Angel to Sam, but within that darkness, there is light. Angel is a bright, masochistic light that shines for Sam, and she is determined to never lose herself or her soul while being forced to do what she does with horrible men. Sam is her always protective teacher and tormentor, and it's quite the complex relationship between them because of it. A big part of their relationship comes from the dynamic between them, as dom and sub. And it's beautiful to watch as you see snippets over their time together.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book. It's dark, and definitely is not for the faint of heart if you don't like seeing young girls forced into roles they shouldn't take. If you love the dynamic between a dom and sub, then you'll really enjoy this one. The book is paced well and well-written, with few grammar mistakes. It drew me from the start, and I didn't want to put it down. It compels you to want to know how and if Sam and Angel can make it out the hell they're in together, and if love is more powerful.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review. I also bought the book because I enjoyed it so much.
Samael's world is dark and full of pain. He has never had much love in his life but when he sees her he knows his heart is in trouble.
Angel is a strong beautiful young woman who has lived a life of hell for years. When she meets the man who's going to train her instead of feeling fear she feels something she can't explain.
Samael's job is to break Angel little by little until she will obey and submit to him and any other man. The more pain Samael gives Angel the more she craves it.
Samael knows he has a job to do but at the same time he's trying to fight his feelings for Angel. This story has so many twist and turns it will keep you guessing and craving for more!
Dani did a wonderful job writing these amazing characters. Samael is so dark and Angel is so damaged but yet so strong. Their relationship is dark and full of heartache and pain but can their love and passion makes the darkness turn to light.
Crave is highly recommended! I can't wait for the next book!
It was heartbreakingly beautiful to see the transformation from Freya to Angel. I cannot put myself in her position and only say I respect Dani's talent immensely. Samael himself is so much more than I expected. I can only say that the author truly focuses on character development and is able to see the complexities and layers of humans in a way that is extraordinary.
Seeing darkness and light together is astounding and leaves you guessing on what will happen. Will the darkness extinguish the light or will the light devour the darkness? Can there be a combination of the two? You'll have to read to find out. Dani's ability to weave a story with twists and detailed world building is stunning.
Expect darkness, expect beauty, expect Dani to elicit every emotion possible but mostly expect Dani to take you on a journey so few authors can so this is a must read. Highly recommend!
If you know anything about me as an author or as a reader, you know I thrive off of a good Hardcore Dark Romance. I live off of the deprivation, the gore, and the horror that keeps most sane individuals up at night. But I'm not sane. And neither is Dani Rene, and I thank the Lord for it. This book was sheer PERFECTION to the nth degree. I cringed, I rallied, and I lived for every chapter, every sentence and every word. This book took me on a roller coaster of emotions and timelines, and I could not WAIT until I got to the next page to see where and with whom I would end up.
Angel was the perfect submissive, the perfect slave and the perfect amount of light to cover our Hero, Sam. She was strong when she needed to be and weak when she didn't have any other choice. She was fierce and tame and the perfect combination of everything in between.
Sam----YES PLEASE-----Samael, you hunky, sexy, piece of "whip me till i'm bleeding" man-meat. I would do dirty, nasty thing to you... and then I'd let you do them to me.
Dani Rene, I salute you, because you have MAJORLY impressed this Dark Author/Reader with your words! L.O.V.E. T.H.I.S. B.O.O.K.

Holy guacamole! My kindle’s exploded! This book was everything I need in a great novel.
It was dark, but it has the fair amount of romance, passion and powerful love.
Sam and Angel are my everything! Angel is the kind of heroine who steals your heart in no time. She has a life with no light in it, yet she’s so damn strong and she never gives up.
And Samael…he made me cry. Not once. Not twice. More than I dare to count. He’s broken. He’s everything you want in a man.
Dani writes with so much power! You can’t put her books down! And it was no different.
With this darker theme she tried out something new, and I think if she follows this path, I’m sure she’s going to rock the charts!

Told from the dual point of view of the two protagonists the story was fast paced, edgy and utterly addictive.... The characters were bestowed with such depth and the relationships between all of them whether lover, friend or monster were completely engrossing and believable...
The further I delve into the series the more I become intrigued, by the depraved world that has moulded the Wolfe family members, and invested in their salvation through the emotional connections they discover in the darkest of places......I am already desperately craving the next in the series....I received a copy of this book as an ARC from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review...
Freya is given up by her father into a life she was not expecting to be trained to obey & givecwhatever is required of her.
The Reaper is the son of the owner & also has a reputation of being the best trainer of the young girls.
He never gets emotionally attached to the girls but Angel is different.
