I’ve read a couple of Ms. Hart’s works and as I enjoyed them I decided to start one of her series and as I expected I enjoyed it too! I like her writing. It wasn’t as dark as I like, it was a mild one just had some dark elements, but nonetheless it was really good! It was a quick read and well-written. Loved Zeth’s character. He was an alpha and Sloane is one of those who can't accept him easily but who can resist bad boy Zeth?! I tell you, No one! This story intrigued me from the first c

When I got the urge to read something dark my first thought was to meet the famous Zeth Mayfair and THANK YOU JESUS that I made this desicion!!!



I thought that this book would be filled with violence, mafia and of all the thinga that just don't work for me.. I WAS WRONG !!! I loved that the story is different. The writing is somehow addictive and easy to read. There is no dragging too slow the things that should happen, no denial or too much drama ( for now ).

Sloane is willing to do anything to find her sister...anything. Zeth is an executioner. He works for a crime lord and makes sure debts get paid or else. When he's approached for information regarding a missing young girl from Seattle, he's immediately drawn to the woman willing to do anything for his answers. If he only knew...
