I had to take a break from reading this book, because I was reading 4 books at once and not finishing any of them. I needed to focus on one at a time! So, I started reading it again a few days ago and finished 3/4 of the book in that time. Great story! I loved getting to know Kenco and was pulled into her world, loving her sassy attitude and fierce confidence. I will be buying the next book in the series and can't wait to start it!
Throughout this whole story we follow Kenco as she tries to find herself amongst all the death and killing that surrounds her. There is a love triangle- or maybe a love quartet throughout the story- a first for me. There’s Bradley, her best friend whom she tries not to feel anything for, but he loves her and won’t let her go. They find themselves together over and over again knowing it’s dangerous, knowing her brother can kill him if he found out about their trysts, yet they can’t deny each other. And then there’s Tyler Douglas. With Tyler she wants to find normalcy, she wants love from him, he also confuses her. But there’s something about Tyler, as much as she tries to tell him how cruel and cold she is, he still wants to be with her. She starts to soften around him and maybe even love him. But she admits to loving Bradley and her emotions towards them are very confusing.
In the meantime, Asonso Abrantes, her first love is fighting with his father to get back to England. He wants to go back to Kenco and will stop at nothing to get her back. Since he left he’s turned dark and powerful and is the King of the Portugal Mafia. Although he can have any woman he wants he still wants Kenco.
Through all these entanglements the story takes twists and turns where you find yourself wanting to know more about what will happen with Kenco and Asonso. The story ends on a cliffhanger. One that leaves you wondering what exactly is in store for Kenco when Asonso returns for her. And what about Bradley and Tyler- does she really love them? I think this story has a lot of potential although at times I felt a little disconnected. An intriguing story overall filled with violence, death and a dark romance.
I don’t want to give away too much of the plot, except to say that it is intriguing, exciting and full of twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end. Though Kenco begins a relationship with Tyler, a college friend, who, at first, she denies she feels anything for, it is clear that she isn’t sure exactly what she feels for him and that as time goes on, she starts to warm to him. She does love Bradley, her best friend, but their relationship is a dangerous one—her brother Tony would kill him if he found out about it. However, Asonso was her first love and sometimes first loves are impossible to forget so you have to wonder what will happen if Asonso comes back into the picture.
I felt sometimes that Kenco wanted to have a normal life—whoever that might be with, but as Demon to her brother’s King I had to wonder if that would ever be possible or if Kenco could reconcile the two different sides to her personality. In some respects, she enjoyed being the ordinary college girl, but a part of her also enjoyed the dark violent secret life she had in which she commanded respect from her boys. There are many violent scenes in Kenco so it’s definitely for adults only, but if you enjoy dark, gritty crime dramas, especially those told from unique perspectives then this book is for you.
The author's clear familiarity with the scenes depicted and their settings is obvious. As an American unfamiliar with much of this, I would have liked a little more introduction/set-up. It also was difficult to stay with Kenco on her seemingly unrelenting dark journey. If you're a fan of dark, engrossing, violent and sexy writing, this author's gifted writing, coupled with a well-edited manuscript, make for a fast, absorbing read.
