⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ 5 out of 5
Wow! The title of this book is so accurate! It’s brutal, raw, twisted, and very dark.
She hasn’t used her birth name in years. She hasn’t been an honest woman or the law-abiding citizen that one would think she is when looking at her. She looks so innocent and a woman that lives the straight and narrow, but she had to do what was needed to survive and it wasn’t always on the up and up. Now she finds herself in the most danger that she has ever been in and she is no longer called by a name but is referred to by a number. One fateful day she finds herself in a situation where she believes to be her lucky day. Little does she know that she’ll never be free or safe, no matter where she hides.
He took over the family business, by literally taking the position. He can’t let anyone know the secrets that have been hidden in his family or his life will be in danger, and not only his, but the two people who are closest to him as well. He has so many secrets in his life. He doesn’t trust anyone, not even his blood. The day he sees #327 his life starts changing and he still tries to hide things. She brings out a side of him that he never knew existed and it could get them both killed. He can’t let anyone know that side of him and #327 has a hard time with the two sides that she sees of Breaker Beneventi. He’s a monster, but he’s her monster.
This book was so dark and brutal, and it gave me some dark dreams, but I loved it. It was raw, dark, twisted, and oh so good to read. I can’t wait for the next book in the series so that I can find out what will happen. The intrigue of whether these characters will get out of danger and find a way to move on with their lives and have a semi normal life is strong. For as dark and dangerous as Breaker is, his inner battle with himself about his feelings for Lyla (Mercy; 327) have given a deeper look into who he is and if he is human. If you like dark, brutal, twisted stories, then you really need to one-click this one and read it. It’ll pull you in and leave you exhausted but it’s well worth it. I give this book a 5-star review and can’t wait for more of the Beneventi Family. This was my first book by Sonya Jesus, but I bought Thirty-One Kisses right after I read this one so that I could read Kelsey’s story.
