This is book 1 in a series of 3. It is very very dark, but you can also see so much caring as well which balances it out in a way. Pearl is one tough lady and I love that she never gave up her fight, which unfortunately for her is part of what these men liked about her. I hope we continue to see her fight and strength throughout the rest of the series. Crow is both dark and sweet and I hope we can see Pearl tame Crow enough to justify them being able to be together. I do hope we see the revenge on.. (Not giving away spoilers) though. This was a book that I could not put down. This book is so much better then 50 Shades and a must read for people who like the darker romance. Note: There are things like rape, abuse so if this is not something you can handle I would skip the read…but while it isn’t my favorite the book itself was one that no one seems to be able to put down.
