Obliterated. That's how my heart felt after finishing this book. Ms. Dawn, give me Part 3 of this story, *now*... *timid sounding, "please."*
Roman's Redemption is anything but as this story unfolds. His precious "Mouse" is gone, by his own hands no less. The one thing, the one person, that finally made him feel, is gone, and because she's gone, it's too late for Roman to realize that he had actually developed a soul, learned how to love, how to feel, how to want and need something so desperately that you're unwilling to lose it.
But it's too late. Mouse is gone and he can't tell her that it's because of her that he found that he *could* be a good man, that he *could* love someone besides himself.
After a massive... and I do mean, *MASSIVE*, killing spree he finds that there may be one person who can still save him. Mouse is gone, but their daughter, Winter Ivy remains. Being raised by the woman that raised him, Delores, and the woman that is taking care of her while while Roman trots around the globe killing woman after woman, he comes home only to find that Delores has a family emergency and must leave for a time to take care of things, leaving him to care for Ivy himself.
He's quite sure that this isn't something he wants, or can, do... until little Ivy walks in on him. She is his little "Mini Mouse", and he throws all of himself into caring for her. Together they make it work, opening up the channel between daddy and daughter. To help him heal.
I loved this second book. To find that The Devil had a heart. To watch it melt when he had to take care of his precious Ivy. Watch him grow a soul as he watched her grow. His Ivy.
But bad things are coming, and the Devil's soul is in jeopardy as are the lives of the ones that put it there. Nothing, and I do mean *nothing* is as it seems!
This book is dark and twisted and will leave you falling from happy heights to sad despair hitting every rung on the way down.
And that's all I'm going to say about that!
I loved it and I want more of it!
