Pain introduces us to Lillian, Lil, who works at an animal shelter, The Sanctuary, for large animals. She and dad take care of animals from elephants to lions and even some tiger cubs. Lil’s mother committed suicide when she was young and that event has left a dark hole deep inside of what is normally a spunky and beautiful girl. But every once in a while, the darkness needs to come out.
What better way to work out some of that angst than with the bad boy? Justice is nineteen and fresh out of jail. He was in for theft and selling drugs but, before you count him out, consider the fact that he had a hard upbringing. His foster father beat the crap out of him and locked him in a basement. Justice is, obviously, really messed up because of it but he has found that the only way to take away the emotional pain is with physical pain.
He is sent to work with Lil and her father as a rehabilitation program but initially doesn’t think he will fit in. But one look at the fiery green eyes of his new boss, and he is singing a different tone. Lil convinces herself that she has to try to fix Justice but manages to do something else entirely. Can she manage to be enough to keep him alive? Will he be enough to fill the gaping hole of darkness in her? Do they belong together? After all, two wrongs don’t make a right…
Lil doesn’t take crap from anyone.Read more ›
Being an animal lover myself, especially cats this was a major draw card for me and I'm thrilled I got to read this!
Life as Lillian knows it is good but their biggest "rescue" is yet to come. Tom knows how broken Lillian was when she arrived and he could see the healing she has done. He had discussed it with her to run a program for troubled youth but gave up when he heard nothing from authorities. The sheriff caught wind of his proposal and approached him, Justice is to be their first guest ......
Justice and Lillian are both powerhouses on their own and strong stubborn personalities but both of them bare scars and wounds from life, some deeper than others. They've found their match in each other. The moment they meet each other sparks flies and their chemistry is alive and so is the battle of wills.....
It's this battle of wills that brings on the healing. Make no mistake it's not an easy journey but it's beautiful.Justice and Lillian not only saved each other physically but emotionally as well.
There were moments when I thought my heart would stop, moments where it shattered and I thought it would never mend. There were also moments where I wanted to inflict hellish pain on those evil beings that abused their power and crushed tiny hearts, souls and bodies. There is a special place in hell for scum like them!
Pain was an amazing five-star introduction to the work of Amanda Mackey . It was a beautiful journey of healing , forgiveness, courage and new beginnings.

The book begins with one of the difficult moments. You can feel young Justice's hate and fear of his "caretaker". He knows the difference between right and wrong, but he has no choice but to make a gut wrenching decision to do wrong. He was a young, abused child with no way out. Fast forward 10 years and he is just getting out of prison. As part of his parole, he is staying and working at an animal sanctuary aptly named The Sanctuary.
Lil is The Sanctuary owner's daughter. Her father charges her with helping Justice get settled and showing him the ropes. They butt head immediately. She is determined to show him that she will not take his crap. He is determined to show her that he doesn't need her and doesn't take orders from anyone. Underneath all the head butting is undeniable attraction.
Their attraction gets the better of them and it is explosive. They soon get under each other's skin and start to care immensely for one another. However, Lil is harboring her own dark secret. Nothing as horrendous as Justice's, but awful enough in its own right. As Justice begins to trust Lil little by little, he starts to see redemption and love (two things he craves) at the end of the tunnel, but of course, there are many (huge) bumps in the road along the way.
I thought Lil and Justice were perfectly paired. She has a soft spot for the lost and abused (and not just animals). Justice is the epitome of lost and abused.Read more ›
