I’ll start by saying I loved this book! It’s only the second book I’ve read by Airicka and the first dark book written by her.
Juliette is indebted to a real nasty criminal called Arlo. Even though it isn’t her debt personally, the consequences of her not continuing to pay it are severe; her younger sister, Viola will be taken from her.
Juliette works 3 jobs and has no life outside work to try and provide for what’s left of her family but Arlo keeps taking more and more money and one night, Juliette is taken to a warehouse in the middle of nowhere. Nobody knows where she is so there isn’t anyone who could save her.
Just as Arlo is about to do something horrific, in walks Killian McClary, also known as the scarlet wolf. Much to Juliette’s despair, Arlo uses her as a partial payment towards his own debt to Killian and offers her to him. Juliette is left wondering if it’s a case of better the devil you don’t know than the devil you do. The fact that Killian is GQ gorgeous and has a sexy Irish accent is a bonus.
Killian decides against his better judgement to take Juliette and he offers her a way out of her situation with Arlo by signing a contract with him. He pays her debt, gives her a monthly allowance and all she has to do is be available to him for sex, 24/7.
Killian is a powerful man in the crime world and has many enemies but also has some highly skilled and dangerous people as friends and as usual, things don’t go smoothly for him and Juliette and there’s more than one life at risk.
This book is full of drama and twists that keep you guessing and surprising you. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves dark, erotic reads, hot alpha males and something different to what they’ve read before.
The characters are just clichéd and caricatures. The He. “Juliette…” is just frustratingly awful. There is just not anything to like about her; she is too stupid for words. For example, she works 3 crappy jobs to pay the mortgage and keep her ungrateful sister clothed, fed and school fees paid?!? She has been doing this for 7 years?!? Yeah right. Insulting to those that actually have to do this to keep their families fed. While doing this she has to give up 70% of her earnings to a loan shark gangster to pay off daddy's debts (he's deceased!!). The 'maths' is also way off here too. She had to pay 2 months at once as she was behind, $6000. You do the maths if $3000 pm = 70% of her NET monthly income - I WANT HER JOBS, LOL!!
There is plenty of sex going on but it's all been done before, and much better. It's shallow and the pace is so slow I want to shoot the donkey, and put it out of it's misery. I love animals too! This story is bad on so many levels but hey don't let me spoil the surprise for you. Much better books out there to read than this.
Let's see, where to begin without giving too much information away?
Killian, an Irish Yum-man, is that a word? Can I make it one? Yes, I do say I can and I will. This Irish Yum-man isn't one for relationships. Even when he saves Juliette from probably her death. Yet, he can't seem to shake the girl from his mind. She has a hold on him that he's not willing to admit.
Juliette is doing everything she can to keep her sister, Vi, safe from any dangers that may be lurking out there. Juliette's world is dark, and seemingly getting darker by each passing day. It's up to her to attempt to raise her sister right, after the death of her parents. After the death, she became the sole heir of her fathers debt. A debt that needs to be paid. The money or her life. Money isn't easy to obtain. Insert Killian, which may or may not be the best savior at hand.
Thrown together in an unexpected moment has both Killian and Juliette rethinking their paths. Killian's sister, Maraveet surely isn't making things easier.
The murders of loved ones are sending horrible messages to Killian and Juliette. How will they be able to save themselves? Maybe they shouldn't be together. The longer they see each other, the worse the outcome.
A page turner, a tear maker, a rage monster, a heart softener makes this book a deadly combination. Are you willing to take the chance to read it? I am certainly glad I did.
