Warning: this is neither a conventional romance nor a traditional love story. There are no hearts and flowers on the pages of this book. The heroine doesn't always make wise choices and though I've tried to make her strong, she's often times weak in the face of the fierce hero. The hero is not a knight in shining armor. He's broken and frequently cruel, and what every woman in the real world should avoid. What's contained within this book is fiction—dark, depraved and decadent make-believe. Contains erotic elements, uncomfortable situations, and descriptions that may trigger past memories of abuse. Intended for readers 18+

Obsession, possession, resilience, insanity...

Seeking solitude and reprieve from her past failed relationships, Elsa begins her life anew in Richmond, hoping to find the change that she so desperately needs. Things are looking up for her—a new job, new friends, a fresh start.

But Victor has different plans for her. From the moment he heard Elsa’s voice, she became next on his to-do list—his Chapter 8. A well-known and respected criminal profiler, his mind is as dark as the criminals he hunts down. It takes one to know one, after all. Under the guise of making his subjects stronger, he intends to break Elsa down using everything in his arsenal—including pleasure, pain, humiliation, and things unspeakable.

Lonely, still on the mend from a bad break-up and longing for attention—Elsa consents to an odd proposition. Initially unaware of Victor’s plans, she quickly realizes that the casual encounter she agreed to is, in fact, a cruel psychological game with no ending in sight. She may be one in a long line of test subjects for Victor; however, she can't be broken so easily. What he puts her through only fuels the fire burning within her—a flame that begins to blaze out of control as she becomes obsessed with everything about Victor and peeling back his cruel layers in search of the real man hiding beneath his heartless facade.

In Victor's world, there is no such thing as happily ever after, and Chapter 8 proves to be an infuriating challenger when she flips the tables on his selfish and twisted game, a game they both may end up losing their hearts and minds over.

Starting this one now. 😁

Probably gonna get a good way through it tonight and tomorrow morning because my internet is being switched to a faster service and I don’t have internet until tomorrow at 2pm when they get to my house to turn it on.

So me and my Kindle are going to be inseparable for awhile.


Mrs. Allen 107 (The Kansan Reader) (thekansanreader) I have yet to start this. I've been reading my two arcs.

Don’t worry. I didn’t even get to it. Me and my sister decided to have a Marvel movie marathon. Watched Captain America, Iron Man 1, and Iron Man 2. Then we got Thor to watch today. Can you tell we’re getting ready for the new Avengers movie? 😂

And my internet is going to be turned on today. So I’ll have to be with the technician for a bit. So I don’t even know how much I’ll get done today. 😩

That's okay. I have my German homework to do and I watched Thor Ragnarok last night. I have my two arcs to read and two other books on top of that.

You watched Thor! I need to watch it. I meant to go see it in IMAX when it came out but totally forgot. It’s on my Marvel list though. ☺️

@Alaina, can’t wait for you to start! I’ve started this one about 20% in.

No it doesn't work for me. I normally have to take stuff that is prescribed to me from a doctor but I hate taking pills. I just deal with it unless it's really bad to the point I can't function. Then I suck it up to take a pill.

No, I haven't been reading as much as I should have. You have been reading and writing reviews. I feel like a slump might be coming on. Hence why I feel like a bad book buddy.
