** 4 "you shattered me" STARS **

"Marcus, you're destroying me. You're taking everything I am and twisting it. You're...ruining me."

"I know, precious."



Marcus Tandem has been managing his grandfather’s company for the last 1o years and waiting patiently for him to pass away so that the finances and management of the business can finally be handed down to him. When it finally happens, Marcus is pretty confident that he’s getting awarded for everything he’s been working for. But his grandfather has a surprise for him: Marcus has to get married within 12 months, to a woman who is willing and stay married with her for 2 years . Otherwise, the company will be taken over by his grandfather’s trusted friend, Walter Johnson, instead.

Which leaves Marcus with a brand new purpose: Find a loving wife.



Katia is a personal assistant to an overbearing boss, working long hours for very little pay. But she doesn’t complain, because she is doing all of it for her mom, who is in need for full time care after being wrongly operated for her brain tumor five years ago and ending up paralyzed, stuck in a wheelchair.

When Katia meets Marcus Tandem, the irresistibly sexy and impressive boss of her BFF, on the one night that she decides to do something for herself and goes out for her BFF's birthday party, she can almost feel that her life is about to change completely.

I knew the moment I entered Marcus' world that he was going to take my soul and likely crush it.


Sensing the danger emanating from Marcus, Katie tries to run away from him. She tries to convince him to go and find someone else to obsess about. But Marcus Tandem always gets what he wants. All he has to do is paint an illusion of himself, with sweet gestures for Katie's mom and about her job, and in the end, when he asks the big question, the fact that he reeks of heartbreak holds small importance for Katie and all she can say is a "Yes."...



Marcus is the kind of man that orders drinks without asking what his wife wants. He doesn't hold his wife and he certainly doesn't call her sweet names. Nope, no heart-shaped chocolates and flowers for Katie. The only word Marcus utters while they are "making love" is "Fuck." and when they finish, he doesn't even sleep in the same bed with her. He orders her around all the time, he is bad tempered, he is bitter, he is cold, he is arrogant and he is completely selfish!

I don't love her, but she's proving easier to live with than I'd first thought.


Quite frankly, Marcus is an asshole. And you can't help but hate his guts most of the book. He feels no remorse for deceiving Katie and irrevocably ruining her life. Even when he finally starts showing little crumbs of humanity and care for the poor girl, he is unloving and distant.

"Marcus, I love you."

"I know you do, Katia."


Katia is a naive young woman, struggling through a life that is becoming too much of a weight on her shoulders, so when this man who promises happiness and care comes along, how can she resist the pull? I can't blame her for falling this fast and hard, but I do blame her for taking that long to see that her love is one-sided and for always making excuses for Marcus' behavior. I blame her for trying to convince herself this is real and that she should stay with him.

Marcus is hard, he's broody, he's not soft and he's not gentle but when he's inside me, deep inside, I feel him. I feel everything he refuses to let me see.


There are plenty of times Katie wonders if her husband loves her, or even cares for her. Something deep down her chest keeps tugging at her, telling THIS is terribly wrong. But she pushes her doubts down with only one word out of her husband's mouth: "precious". He starts touching her and every doubt is forgotten.

He makes me forgive him with his mouth between my legs. Then with his c*ck deep inside me. And I go back to where I started. Absolutely head over heels for him, and losing another part of my soul.


Even though I disliked both Katia and Marcus for the first half of the book, Bella Jewel managed to turn the tables at some point and make me fall in love with their story! Both of these characters are completely different people now and I can't help but feel kinda scared about what is coming our way in Book#2!

Lastly, I'd like a round of applause for me from my GR buddies, for starting yet another cliffy serial. I can be an incorrigible and masochistic idiot sometimes. I dunno why I keep doing this to myself. *sigh*

Book#2 is coming out in 4 weeks. FOUR WEEKS!?!

I'LL LOSE MY FREAKIN' MIND WAITING!



I love him in a way that's toxic. I know it because no matter how much my heart screams at me that something isn't right, I can't stay away.
