Lily then is forced to move in with Lucifer but he treats her better than Marshall ever did and the kids as well. She thinks about running away but Lucifer lives in a fortress. Then the unthinkable happens and Lucifer has to do the unthinkable. Will this act solidify a relationship or will it all come crashing down. Read to find out. I hope you enjoy it.
My main issue is with the graphic violence throughout the book, especially at the end. We already know that Lucifer ran a criminal empire and didn't get where he is by being a nice guy. That's why I feel the descriptive graphic violence was over the top and unnecessary to further the story.
Worst of all, Lilith thought it was great that there was finally a man interested in her children. I guess for her that sort of role model was fine - it's okay to keep a woman against her will if you're stronger. In fact, she'll learn to love it because let's face it, he knows best. Seriously. The character arch for Lilith is that she realizes that giving into Lucifer and letting him run her life is what gives her happiness. Gave me the creeps.
The climax was not suspenseful. At no point was I worried. Apart from the setup, there were no hitches or twists or anything unexpected. The sex was fine, but nothing special. The writing was decent. But the characters killed this book.
As Lily is betrayed by her husband, and bartered away with her two young children for a 5 million dollar debt, she is controlled and taken care of by Lucifer.
Lucifer is totally obsessed and in love with Lily. He's the total, brutal, alpha male and always in control. His weakness is Lily, but he never caves.
This was a very dark romance. I loved the way the author portrayed Lucifer/Matthew. He is the ultimate alpha hero. Not afraid to eliminate any threat or obstacle that may get in the way if his family with Lily and her children. He wants Lily, Lily loves her children, so they become his children and given all the rights, protection and care as he would if they were his own.
Firm, decisive, but always conscious of Lily, her needs, her wants. Pretty fantastic if not brutal fantasy hero.
Loved this story, writing style, character development, pacing, and hot hot hot steamy scenes.
Lily & Lucifer
So, this book was recommended to me by my friend Kathryn. Her review says to put your brain in your back pocket for this one and now I know why. It’s an unconventional kind of connection. He’s not a bad guy, at least not to Lily and her kids, but cross him or hurt someone he loves and he becomes the monster you’ve always feared. I guess I could see this really happening, but it would fear and far between I’m afraid. Good thing it’s a book and not real life.
Lily and her children are traded to a sort of mobster (Lucifer) by her jerkface husband for debts he incurred through said mobster. Once Lucifer lays eyes on Lily he knows he must have her. He must possess her. And he must make her completely his. Lily is not so sure, but coming off a yearlong celibacy, she’s immediately ignited by his presence. Lucifer will do whatever it takes to earn her trust and make her understand that she’s all he’s ever wanted or needed. The kids ended up being a bonus for him as they are so darn cute and don’t ever mention their jerkface father once.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a very quick read and had plenty of highs and lows to keep me turning pages in record time. I literally read it from cover to cover in one day. The characters are enjoyable and demanding. The dialogue flowed well and the pacing was rather swift. There was a good amount of tension and suspense that lead to an unbelievable conclusion. I loved it!
