Hughes is a lifer. Big, scary, scarred, touch averse, and a cannibal. Elias is exactly his type which makes him a perfect cell mate. Elias shouldn’t find Hughes fascinating or so irresistibly sexy. Hughes allows the young man to touch his body and his soul.
I have to admit that the title is what drew me to the book. I certainly wasn’t expecting what I got. An insightful look into the mind of a serial killer protecting what he came to see as his boy. I liked seeing Hughes become more humanized, so different than the monster most people saw. The mens stories were well developed considering most of the book takes place with them in a small cell. This was a sexually charged book which added to the intensity of each mans character. This book just appealed to me.
And I can only concur with the surprised delight of so many other reviewers. This read - cringe-worthy title and all - is pretty darn good.
Now, it won’t win any rewards. It’s shallow entertainment, heavy on the smut. But it’s high quality, smutty entertainment which makes all the difference! It’s highly unrealistic, slightly dark – but not at all as dark as I thought it would be – and pretty much the definition of a guilty pleasure.
It’s a short, fast-paced read. And the story kept me captivated from the very beginning. It’s the perfect balance between the two main attractions of the story; the relationship between Elias and Hughes and the escalating attempts on Elias’ life. In other words, there’s not a dull moment in there. There are fights, corrupt guards, prison gangs. And naughty, naughty, hot stuff.
The plot is of course entirely implausible. Well, the entire book is really. But the storytelling is excellent. It’s remarkable how a storyline this cheesy can still be turned into such a great read by talented authors. I haven’t read anything by Euclid or Nacht before, but considering what they could pull off with this story, I will most definitely check out more of their work.
But apart from Euclid’s and Nacht’s impressive writing-skills, there were two things in particular that ‘saved’ this read for me. First, there’s no non-con. Everything is consensual which brings the read from potentially super-dark to rather light and fluffy. Then there’s a revelation that – sort of – manages to dispel some of the aversion towards Hughes the cannibal.
This read is absolutely still troubling though. Elias’ and Hughes’ lovestory is based on a premise that more often than not ends with domestic abuse. Namely the idea that an angry, violent man can be changed by love. It’s a nice thought. Faulty, but nice. However. All is allowed in fiction and smut. And when the smut is so very, very well-written, I can absolutely look past plenty of red flags and warning bells.
It was very intense. It's really dark, but at the same time it's really light. Hughes is not a good guy. But he's not a bad guy either. He was a troubled guy who did some very bad things. Once you know him though part of you wants to just excuse it all because dang he had some circumstances but you know it's just bad. Makes you think about things HARD.
Elias is a great compliment. Kind of chaotic good. Very well constructed character. You get inside his head enough to understand his thought process throughout. While the relationship was born from fear and necessity you get into his mind enough to realize that that's not ALL it is.
Truly great book. Suspend a bit of disbelief, especially for the HEA because you REALLY want an HEA and enjoy it for the dark fairy tale that it is.

The primary focus is prison corruption, which the MCs unite to expose and then end up falling in love along the way (like …almost immediately), which would’ve made for an okay peripheral plot, but it monopolised practically the entire book, which resulted in a slow and pretty lacklustre read at times.
I get that being thrown together in close proximity and surrounded by constant threat can result in a quicker than usual bond between cellmates - it’s one of the aspects I love most about this trope - but seriously, these two seemed to trust too easily, fall into sex too easily [and not just out of initial necessity either, like you’d expect with a prison Daddy tale] and ultimately, fall in love too easily. There was none of the angsty, slow-burn or yearning for one another that I think makes for a heartfelt, gripping and realistic prison love story. *****SPOILER***** And when the leads are inevitably separated for several months after Elias’ release from prison? yup ..it’s completely glossed over. We see none of their pining or heartbreak, and ergo, feel none of their pain – which is a crucial part of the lovers’ journey in any prison romance for a) believability and b) for the reader to empathise with and champion the couple. And unfortunately, I just didn’t feel any real connection or chemistry between Hughes and Elias.*****END OF SPOILER*****
And it must’ve been mere days (couple of weeks at best) after they first meet that they’re declaring it was all fated *rolls eyes* …whilst having sex – which don’t get me wrong, was kinda hot, but again, ultimately ruined by the syrupy-sweet and distinctly un-masculine dialogue. Sorry, but these two [particularly Hughes] just don’t speak like any guy I’ve ever known IRL.
Alas, this one ain’t for me. But if schmaltzy, prison-lite romance with a stereotypically huge Daddy/top and diminutive, blond bottom is your thing …you may well like it.
