WTF!!!! This was an epic story. I couldn’t put it down.... not even for a second..

This story is dark, hot, filthy, and everything you will need in a book.

Lucian has taken the crown of the most alpha, filthy mofo of all time.

Lucian and Elena was so perfect for each other. One loves to give pain while the other loves to feel it. How f*cked up is that.

Elena was slowly dying because of everything she had to endure while growing up and not having anyone on her side. The last person she thought th

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Read this one in a day, couldn’t put it down. Is there such a thing as an alpha female? I mean I hear strong, fierce, independent but I want to make an alpha-female a thing because that’s what Elaine is. This girl can’t help herself from talking back or poking a bear that is Lucian Morelli if her life depended on it. And it does... depend on it but she just truly doesn’t care. These two! 😂 I mean it’s a dark story, it really is but the banter between Lucian and Elaine is so ridiculous ...more

Wowwwwww. I loved this.

I love this filthy take on Romeo and Juliet!

This book picks right up where heartless leaves off.

Secrets are shared.
Lines are crossed.
Filthiness ensues.

Highly, highly recommend this dark, twisted book two in the trilogy! Cannot wait for relentless!

Lucian Morelli made a move he couldn’t come back from. With Elaine Constantine's disappearance shifting the warring families’ dynamic, their own hatred for each other started to evolve into something they couldn’t comprehend.

I like the darkness in the story, but this book and book 1 would have been so much tighter as a single book. The plot progression was too slow, with unnecessary

So what do I say...Well, if you have traveled down this Alice in Wonderland rabbit hole of dark, very dark romance, then you will know you are in for a rocky, bumpy ride with this section of the series.

So as not to spoil anything...All I can say is these two do find a connection...even though they have been raised to be mortal enemies since birth.

Be prepared...there is another book after this one.

Honestly,I liked this book better than the first one(Heartless) because
we get to know more about Lucian and Elaine.It explains their actions and why they are the way they are.Especially when it came to Elaine,in the first book(Heartless) I didn't understand why she is suicidal and I didn't like her that much but this book changes it all and I used to think Lucian is psycho or something but again this book changes it all .

What’s this book about? (I'm trying to give as little spoilers as possible)
You must read Heartless by Jade West first to understand the plot.

Wow. After I read Heartless, the two main characters of the book stuck with me. It was a tough cliffhanger to survive, and when the beautiful Soulless arrived on my Kindle, I couldn’t wait to read it!!! These two are explosive. I love spending time in thei

Continuing without interruption in the timeline, Lucian and Elaine are at a turning point and the tension is notched up to full heat. Due to Elaine’s past, she can no longer hide and she is ready to be free of her secrets. For Lucian, he is fully prepared to cross the Constantine-Morelli feud line to take what he wants and make Elaine pay for it.

Jade West took me to another level of mindf**k and filthy passion in Soulless. This story sucked me right in with flawed yet unforgettable characters and their dark emotions. It shocked me. It stunned me. It made me fall even harder for this debauched and twisted world.

This couple is pretty twisted to begin with, add to that Elaine revelation of him being a provider of pain she so desperately craves, I'm gonna say..things are gonna get pretty unstable pretty fast. They're both sort of kindred spirits, each gluing together their broken souls to put on a show. Lucian is cruel and heartless, and Elaine is on a destructive streak.

We start where book one’s cliffhanger left us with Lucian kidnapping Elaine. And although he’s trying to deny his feelings and sees this as a means to an end, he takes her to a place that’s sacred to him so that she can’t be found and can be his puppet to bend at his will.

I love Lucian’s supreme alpha personality, his dominance and need for power oozes from the pages and his need for vengeance overpowering, I can’t wait to see him with all his fury in the conclusion.

This book was a huge shift in this series for me. Lucian and Elaine both battle their feelings and intentions with one another while war breaks out among the families.

I loved the character development of both Lucian and Elaine in this book!!! It kept me riveted and falling for Lucian as a man, rather than a dominant narcissist. Both characters reveal secrets, vulnerabilities and emotions that will keep you glued to the pages.

“Bound in secrets much stronger than blood."

Welcome back into Elaine and Lucian story with a second opus that starts off where we left them in Heartless, the first opus of the Starcrossed Lovers Trilogy.

If you like an intense banter, a sassy, albeit jaded heroine and a class A asshole, you'll love the romance these two damaged souls embark on. 

Jade West wrote an enjoyable second installment, sexy, tension filled with fun moments that had me laughing.

Oh, my, my, my........Lucian Morelli what have you done to me!!!!

This man's dark, twisted, deviant ways have captivated me page after page of his spellbinding mindfuckery! Elaine's pain runs deep and through her words you feel her tortured soul and understand her need to end it all. What a pair these two make with the unraveling of their story and the seduction that builds the longer these two are stuck together.

I loved Soulless even more than I loved Heartless!!!

These two characters, Lucian and Elaine, are so beautifully broken and flawed. They truly are destined for each other. The way they break down each other's walls was beautiful to watch. My heart broke for Elaine as she told him the depth of her tragic childhood. My heart soared as Lucian plotted the demise of those that hurt her.

Holy Wow- this book was dark and twisted and I devoured it! I feel like we just scratched the surface in Heartless, but this book really gave us the layers that created these two flawed souls in Lucian and Elaine. The dual POV here is on point as we get start to understand what makes both of these character's tick and how their terrible childhoods contributed to the monsters that haunt them.

Happily the second book of the trilogy picks up the story exactly where we left Lucian and Elaine in Heartless which must be read first. This time we get a deeper look at both characters and Lucian is more next level crazy than I thought. I love how Jade has written Lucian unapologetically dark with more mood swings than I can count. He alternates between volatile indifferent moody but that dark edge makes for some seriously passionate scenes. Elaine is the very definition of survivor, her past ...more

Book two in the Starcrossed Lovers series and part of the midnight density world. Soulless continues the story of Lucian and Elaine and must be read in order. The story will conclude in book three.

This book begins where book one finishes with the pain in a mess. A dark romance as the trope suggests the book's character are rather messed up. The book follows a similar line to book one in that we get more of the twisted journey of Lucian and Elaine.

Looking forward to seeing how the pairs journey

Epic, twisted, devastating and well written.
Jade is an amazing author and I will read anything she writes. She really ousbed boundaries with this book and I am so excited to see where the next book takes us.
Lucian is back and he is as ruthless and Cruel as he was in the first book.
Elaine is a kind of broken, with many secrets that he wants to uncover.
The book is steamy and if you loved the first book, this one will leave you craving for more.
I loved it.

This boooook!! Lucian and Elaine. Damnit I love them and their hate, their lust, their unrelenting, unrepentant, unwanted attraction to one another.

They're the most twisted, brutal, set of soulmates I've ever read. They're a match made in hell, enemies from birth, and at first glance they're complete opposites. But the beauty in this authors writing makes their hatred for one another grow into something all-consuming.

It was such beautiful torture watching them slowly fall together. They go fro

He made it hurt. Bites and bruises and blood.

Ms West doesn’t hold back in this second book, dark, gritty, filthy and so angsty you won’t know what hit you. If you’re familiar with this author’s writing than get ready for the all in treatment if, by some unknown reasons, you have never read anything by the Queen of Smut then proceed with caution, I’m not saying that just to say it, I really mean it...

OMG, I am frustrated that this isn't coming out sooner. It's going to be a long wait for December 15. I guess i will have something to look forward to after finals and during Winter Break.


I'm not sure what to say to be honest 😂. There isn't too much plot in this one; I guess u could say it's more character driven--Lucien and Elaine, the modern-day Romeo & Juliet couple, fall in love (surprise surprise---it was pretty inevitable). I'm interested into see how book 3, the end of this

We saw the undeniable attraction and chemistry between Lucian and Elaine in Heartless. Soulless takes us deeper…so much deeper. Lucian and Elaine form a deep and soulful understanding of each other. We learn what drives them and how their pasts motivate their actions.

The same electricity and raw passion between the two exists, but the reader gets to enjoy their growing love. The banter, the hate, the animosity slowly morphs into devotion, loyalty and love. A love so strong they are willing to d

•“It was a beautiful darkness, to be wanted by such a demon.”•

This was EVERYTHING I had hoped for and craved after reading Heartless.

Although it starts out a bit slow and with the same sort of pattern as Heartless it quickly picks up. There’s more dialogue, which was what I had wanted so badly between Lucian and Elaine, and overall a more well paced inner dialogue and narration.

The push and pull between these two characters is intense and absolutely captivating, beyond what I could’ve imagined

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
