4 (Hesitant) Stars.

Karissa is a 18 years old college student that falls in love with an older guy. Naz is sexy, smart, irresistible…. And dangerous.
She knows he’s not a good man, but she still can’t get away. There’s something pulling them together.
But as their romance starts to grow, she realizes that maybe their lives are more entwined that she thought. And now she has already too far in, to get back.


There’s one thing Karissa will soon realize, when you fall in love with a monster how ready will you be when he is unleashed?
And when secrets start to get revealed, who is the real monster?


Rating: 4 Stars. 3 for the book, 1 plus for the author, because she wrote “Sempre” that is one of my favorite books of all time. I don’t care that we shouldn’t rate based on how we feel about the author, but meh, is my review so deal with it! :P
Storyline: This is not your traditional romance. It’s dark, raw and sexy. Although I liked I didn’t particularly liked the development of their relationship. I know that Naz is supped to be a dominant-sexy-badass, but still, in a lot of moments it seemed like he was almost forcing her to be with him.
Writing Style: First person, female POV. Amazingly written, emotional and engaging. I started this book before going to bed and let’s just say: I went to work very cranky due to the lack of sleep.
Character Development: I don’t love the “dark hero” that much, but with some annoyances I ended up liking Naz. The surprise was Karissa. Yes, she is completely naïve, but she is not annoying and I liked her a lot.
Steam: Hot.
