★★★★! Monster in His Eyes, book 1 of 2. College girl is seduced by the mysterious, mercurial and older Naz! She doesn’t stand a chance, but who is he?

“He fucks me like he means it, like he needs it, like being inside of me is more important than anything inside of him.”

Books in series should be read in order:
Book 1: Monster in His Eyes
Book 2: Torture to Her Soul


Monster in His Eyes (book 1) opens up to university student Karissa Reed, Kissimmee in College doing mid-terms, fretting over her Philosophy class and hanging out with her friends. Abandoned by her father before birth she spent her childhood moving from place to place with her mom seeking happiness and peace while coddling Karissa.

She has finally broken away and moved to the city to attend NYC. But her upbringing has left her naïve and insecure, very impressionable. When she encounters a handsome stranger, much older than her she is both smitten and taken back.

The mysterious and mercurial Ignazio Vitale, Naz claims to be a freelancer. From the moment their eyes catch Karissa doesn’t stand a chance against the force that is Naz. He pursues her while warning her off.

“I'm not a good man, Karissa, and I never will be . So don't think you can fix me, or that I'll ever change, because I won't. I can't.”

Sex with Naz is rough, angry and violent at times. The courtship that ensues is intense, bordering on addictive. The fact that he associates with known mobsters hints to a darker and dangerous side. Strap on your seatbelt for the unfolding of who is Ignazio Vitale, Naz?

Eight words to describe Ignazio Vitale, Naz: Mysterious, mercurial, closed-off, imperfect, broken, ruthless, possessive and nurturing.

Naz, with his rough edges and slightly sinister smile, is pure passion and genuine grit, the kind that makes the hair on my arms stand on end while my spine simultaneously tingles.”

Eight words to describe Karissa Reed, Kissimmee: Naïve, lonely insecure, impressionable, smart, inadequate, immature and sheltered.

Monster in His Eyes is the slow yet captivating seduction of Karissa and the unfolding of the enigma that is Naz. Needless to say it ends abruptly, not so much a cliffy more like violence and chaos. I look forward to reading book 2, Torture to Her Soul for the conclusion of their story.

Mysterious and suspenseful plot! Excellent story-telling! Memorable and captivating hero!

“And I ate you alive, sweetheart. You never had a chance.”
