I have had this book on my rubbernecking-tbr for a long time and finally I got down to it. It is an almost routine revenge story where the once-poor-but-now-billionaire H wants to take down the h’s evil immoral father who was responsible for his sister’s death. The sister had been forced into prostitution and the father had killed her when she refused to perform some act on him. The H assumes that the h must be as rotten as her father and treats her horribly.
I usually can’t stop ...more
I'm going from 3 stars down to 2. And I'm only giving 2 stars because I do love the go f* yourself speech the h made.
The incongruity of the H's actions and his life's work was just irreconcilable... two fancy, big words there ;) NE way. I'm not going to waste tim ...more

Eve, daughter of insanely abusive bussinessman, tend to put a mask everyday in her life. She didn't care about what people said about her, that she's a wild girl that always go to party, wavin ...more
Speechless... It ended. What can I really say about this one? I think about the story and tears instantly come to my eyes. This was an emotional story. Both the protagonists are somehow scarred. Alexei and Eve's story will make you cry, grit your teeth, scowl and growl.
You will despise Alexei, you will misunderstand Eve...then suddenly the truth is out and you can't help but feel bad for both of them.
I started this book last night to help me sleep. It didn't, now I can't feel my fingers. I am ...more
(view spoiler)[Where did the "love" come from. I can see how they can be considered close after all they did together and now knowing each others secrets, but love needs to grow not just appear. The book was actually pretty great until the las ...more

and all that melodrama in office so pathetic.
