He revels in Elyse’s love, their passion is all-consuming. She is his much-needed rock, but he is afraid she is too good for him and refuses to drag her in his darkness. He's so messed-up but he's trying his absolute best to be everything his girl needs him to be. I love how on the outside he's this larger-than-life billionaire tycoon but on the inside, he's just a man, broken and damaged, who wants to be loved, who wants hope. He is used to getting his own way, but he so afraid he will lose Elyse. He envies her strength, her selflessness and her compassion.
Elyse is a wonderful character, her love is unconditional. Quinn is her reason for living, her everything. But she knows that his self-destructing tendencies have to be dealt with. I really liked her strength of character, her ability to compromise and convince Quinn. The road to happiness may have been a bit bumpy for these two characters, but their happily-ever-after was utterly satisfying!
I’m in awe of Zara Cox, her stories and characters really get under my skin, so to say. I’m fascinated by complex characters and boy, did she deliver with Quinn Blackwood and Elyse Gilbert! And she sure does know how to turn up the heat! Highly recommended if you enjoy dark, steamy and romantic love stories that leave you breathless!

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
This is a follow-up story to the first book in the Dark Desires series, Beautiful Liar. I feel that you really should read the first book before you read this story. The second book, Black Sheep is also very good but has no real bearing on this story, it concerns different characters, although those characters are referenced in this story. The plot of this story takes place after the conclusion of Beautiful Liar. Quinn and Elyse are trying to make a life together. Quinn’s self-destructive mindset and his obsessive need to control and protect Elyse makes for a very strenuous relationship. Elyse loves Quinn with every fiber of her being, but when she feels that someone is watching her she makes the mistake of not going directly to the man who depends on her for his very reason for living. When Quinn finds out that Elyse has a stalker, his tenuous grip on control slips even further into his darkness. The chemistry between Quinn and Elyse is just as hot as it was in the first book, maybe hotter. Quinn has so many issues and Elyse is the one person that can help keep the pure darkness at bay. This is a fast story that reads quickly. There is just enough suspense to keep this story interesting. There is also enough heat in this story that your reading device may melt in your hands. The story has a very good ending giving the fans of this series exactly what they needed. Most of the character development was done in the first book, but as the relationship between Elyse and Quinn develop we, as readers, have a better understanding of the complicated relationship between these two characters.
On a side note, the first book of this series was also released under a different title, I, Porn Star.
