Sadie Bonds was abducted by a sadistic killer when she was a teenager. She managed to survive her time with him but not without it leaving not only an outer scar but also with a fascination with blood and a craving for things she’s tries not to think about. She went on to work in the police force and had worked herself up to becoming a profiler with the FBI but instead took a demotion and now works for the Arlington County Police department as their criminal profiler. Most of the men don’t respect her job including her partner Quinn. But when women start turning up dead with plenty of blood surrounding the crime scenes Quinn’s animosity changes when he knows that if they are going to catch this killer that Sadie and her gift of being able to read what story the blood from the victims tells her will be their best bet.
Sadie is such a fascinating character. Her time in captivity with a killer certainly messed with her mind but instead of letting it make her insane she has taken her fascination with blood and used it help find other killers. What she doesn’t realize at the start of this case is it is personal and this killer knows things about her past that no one should.
In the middle of the investigation we are shown Sadie frequents a BDSM club as a voyeur to try and sate the demons in her mind that take over after seeing the horrific things of the murders. It is here she meets the club owner’s brother Colton Reed who is a master at rope bondage – which is one of her triggers from her time with her own abductor. We get Colton’s POV throughout the book and he is one hot sexy Dom but by the end of this book he is still a man of mystery. We haven’t gotten the full story on him yet and I can’t want to see what demons are in his past.
This book does end on a cliffhanger. Normally that would drive me nuts but we were given plenty of story to stew on until the next book. I was fascinated with all the threads of different genres the author weaved throughout this book. Yes, it a romantic suspense at heart but it also soo much more than that and I was entranced from beginning to end.
The main character is tragic and broken, but she's still strong and interesting. That's a difficult balance to make. The love interest is mysterious and smart. Together, they are an exciting mix of need vs want. It's very intriguing watching them get to know each other.
Meanwhile, the protagonist whose identity remains unknown, stalks her causing all sorts of deadly problems. I'm usually really good at guessing who did it, but this author has me stumped and I like that. No trite predictability here.
The only thing I didn't like was the cliffhanger ending. If there isn't an ending, don't call it a book. It's like the book stopped several chapters in, but I can purchase the second part and find out what happened.
I don't think that's good relationship building with your readers, but your plan worked. You got me invested enough in the free story that I'm going to spend money for the next installment so that I can see what happens next.
Please don't disappoint me!
In this first book we are introduced to the dark world of criminal profiler Sadie Bonds. During the day she helps the local police solve crimes with the skills she has acquired as a result of her being a victim in the past--never again will she let herself fall into similar circumstances. By night we see a completely different side of Agent Bonds...where she delves into her darker desires. She has captured the attention of a gorgeous man by the name of Colton Reed--an expert in shibari and the brother to owner of BDSM club, The Lair. While Sadie tries to hide in plain sight at the Lair, Colton has been watching her for a while, and his desire to posses her will awaken her darkest desires. When a new string of murders occur, it seems a serial killer is trying to gain the special attention of Agent Bonds. Will she be able to stop the murders that call to her darker nature, while giving in to the same side of herself with Colton?
I'm so glad this series was referred to me by another reading group! There is great depth to the characters in this book, and the interesting part that you rarely see is the killer's version of the events. You'll be trying to figure out what is going on while getting to know the main characters, but you will be left wanting more since this is book one of a three book series. Trust me though, this series is worth every penny!

Absolutely superb and even though I know this isn’t the best review ever I’m afraid it will have to do because I need to get on to book two right now!
This is a dark and gripping story. We are introduced to Sadie, who has a disturbing past which she tries to keep locked away. She works as a profiler and is working on a savage murder trying to get inside the head of the perpetrator, when she meets Colton. He is a shibari specialist at a BDSM club she visits and their attraction is intense.
Sadie gets drawn deeper into the mind of the murderer as well as pushing her boundaries with Colton and the lines blur to such an extent that we are left guessing.....
I felt Sadie's pain, fear and desire. Colton's want and need.
I was pushed through every emotion and the storyline was absolutely gripping.
I can't wait to start book two.
Superb read and I book I'm thrilled to have in my collection.
Dark, twisted and un put down able. The writing is superb, I can't wait for the next installment.
