Overall rating: 4.3

What a twisted, fuck up, dark story... I loved it!
This book picks up right where book one ended, and the darkness level has definitely been turned WAY up in book 2 of this series!
"Rafe was dead. Last night I'd lived a dream, so vivid I could still feel him against me. But I'd never feel him again. Never hear his voice, his laughter. Never breathe in the musk of his skin, feel the sweat of his brow at my breasts. Never again lose my breath to the vice of his hands around my throat. I'd give anything to get that back, even if giving up control terrified me." - Alex
Alex thinks Rafe is dead, and she's being held prisoner by her step-brother, Zach, who fancies himself in love with little sister. Zach is so twisted, and Ms. James really knows how to get into the character's head, in turn getting the character into the reader's head.
"Nighttime always hit hard, when the dark wee hours of morning choked me with loneliness" - Alex
Zach drugs Alex with Ecstasy and rapes her, brutally, marking her body as his, and her only escape to to think of Rafe, which becomes her downfall.

But the major twist that shows up straight out of the gate is almost gut wrenching and the twists and turns don't stop there.. if you love dark reads this one will hold you captive, all the way to the cliffhanger ending! Better have book 3 locked and loaded in your e-reader.. trust me, as soon as you get to the last page of this one, you'll want to start the next one right away.

Wrong. Yes. But, OMG, I can't get enough!
