Now before I say this, let me say that dark and gritty romance is typically the genre I lean towards. Lately, it seems to be the genre I read the most and I've definitely read my share of them, varying from gray to the flat out DARK. It also means that I tend to be very picky with the dark books because I've read my fair share of them. So what I'm about to say goes against pretty much everything I know and thought and never thought I'd find myself saying it. EVER.
This book was too vulgar for me.
Yeah. I'll give you a moment to process that.
See here's the thing, the story is actually quite unique and was very promising. And if the writing style will work for you? You will love it. Unfortunately, that's precisely what didn't work for me. The writing read like it was trying too hard. What I mean is, I felt like it was attempting to shove down my throat how "dark" this book and the characters are. It was very superflous to the point of redundancy. The hero, X, kept telling the reader over and over and OVER again what a bastard and monster he is. As a matter of fact, the word "monster" appears 34 times throughout the book. Yes, I get it!
"There was no black and white in my world. It was black and blacker.
And I was the blackest of them all."

"I was dark and twisted...unfeeling. My talent was taking life away. I never got off on it, it was nothing more than a job."

If there’s one thing that I’ve garnered from the books that I’ve read by Amity Cross is that she’s not afraid to think outside the box and go darker and nastier than most authors feel comfortable doing, which is one of the reasons her books lure her readers in and have them begging for more when they end in cliffhangers.
X, like other of Cross’ male leads, is more of an anti-hero than a hero. He commits heinous crimes for the Royal Blood motorcycle club, and it’s the darkness and carnage that feeds his black soul. He’s dark and twisted – completely unfeeling, which is how he’s had to be in order to carry out his orders. His humanity has been stripped from him, and that’s fine by him because no one has ever done anything to make him care or make him want to redeem himself in anyone’s eyes until Mercy.
Mercy is nothing like the woman she used to be; her heart is hardened and the only thing she needs is retribution. She doesn’t need X as a complication to her plan, but she can’t deny that she wants him.Read more ›
I really enjoyed this story. Like I said above, it was dark and plus with it being associated with bikers....I was sooooo gonna read it! There is a lot of mystery to it and even though you kinda figure it out, it was still a shocker to see both X and Mercy find it out. The story line, the characters were on point. It flowed really well.
X is a what I call a double d. Dark and dirty! I wouldn't want anything less from him. He is a hitman so expect him to not care about anything or at least until Mercy shows. He was not expecting her...at all. She is feisty and beautiful, gives as good as she gets. Wouldn't want nothing less from her either. Their secrets intertwine and I couldn't help but root for the both of them. They have a lot of obstacles in their way but I am hooked and I cannot wait to see what happens!
