A "punch you in the face" start to this series

This book (which also contains the prequel Capture) gets this series off to a roaring start. I couldn't put it down, needing to know what happens next. Wanting down into my bones for Fiore/Katherine to find her escape from Arsen/Monster. He thought to himself, even verbalized to Fiore, that he wouldn't take what wasn't his (i.e. force himself on her). But then he used threats and coercion to get her "consent," so...

PSA: that is not consent.

So, what I'm saying is, I hate Arsen so far. He also thought fondly about how he'd made his last "girl" wish for death. Referred to her as "nothing but a whore." Thought excitedly about breaking Fiore/Katherine down until she, too, wished for death. And then, in his infinite mercy, granting her that death. He makes me sick. I'm going to continue reading in hopes that she gets one over on him. That she causes him some pain. Man, in hopes that ANYONE causes him some pain. Because right now he is, as he is rightfully named, a monster. Irredeemable. And he can go to hell.

This is dark. If you're looking for a sexy kidnap book, this book is not that. I'd say it is more of an erotic thriller. I can't say what Arsen's character will be like by the end of the series, or how I'll feel about him, but right now I'd like very much for him to fall off a cliff. A big one. On to some rocks.
Still, if you're cool with an erotic thriller, this is a good one. Just don't expect to like Arsen. At all.
