Excerpt
Finally, I sigh in defeat and look up, meeting his watchful gaze directly. “I don’t have
any money.”
He raises an eyebrow. “Did I ask for money?”
“I don’t have anything else you might want either,” I snap.
“I doubt that…” He pointedly eyes the neckline of my dress, and I shift uncomfortably.
It’s cut differently than my tried and true sweaters, displaying more of my collarbone and a glimpse of the flesh beneath. I can’t stop myself from crossing my arms over my chest, and he flashes that dangerous grin in triumph.
“In fact, I can think of a few things you could offer—”
“Get out.”
I slam the ledger shut and turn away as if just telling him to leave could make it true.
But he doesn’t. Neither does he creep toward my corner to drill in his taunt—and
that’s the worst part. I have to endure him, but without the tools I’m used to utilizing.
Silence and the safety of my own head don’t work where he is concerned.
His breathing is too noisy, grating and raspy. His scent is overpowering, sneaking
into my lungs with every breath. Around him, my thoughts don’t form the
protective wall I’m used to hiding behind. They fracture. Splinter.
And he breaks through easily.
“I want to see you hop, bunny,” he murmurs, just when I think I might scream to counteract his presence. “Without the dowdy little sweaters or the boring little mask. I
want to prove you wrong. I didn’t run last time. I just gave you a taste. It’s
up to you if you want more but with no excuses. No chance to cry assault.”
I bristle at his tone, wrapping my arms around my waist even tighter. If I hope to find
comfort in the action…I don’t. His gaze slips beneath the barrier, creeping over me without permission. I can practically feel his gaze rasping along my skin.
“What are you talking about?”
“Tonight,” he repeats. “Dragon’s Head. You can even bring your little friend if you want.”
Dragon’s Head. The name conjures the image of neon lights and raucous dancing.
“The club?” I frown.
“Why would I go there with you?”
He laughs, and his steps resonate through the floor. Alarmed, I turn to watch him move, but he takes his time, giving me every chance to cower and back away.
I don’t recognize the way my breathing hitches as he comes closer. How my nerves tense as he raises his hand, deliberately inching toward my cheek.
“D-Don’t touch me—”
“I have touched you,” he reminds me. “Don’t kid yourself into believing you don’t want
more.”
“More of what?” I force myself to meet his gaze only to regret it.
I wish his eyes gleamed in that mocking, cruel way, but their stare is flat and empty.
“More of what could happen the next time I have my fingers inside you.”

MY REVIEW:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5

Not all monsters lurk in closets or under beds. “We all have demons inside, waiting to emerge when least expected”. Some monsters are scarier than others.

She’s running from her past, but it followed her to college. Now she wants to be on her own but can’t seem to escape her brother no matter what she does. She moved into her own apartment only to have him set up surveillance on her and check in on her daily. Her escape from under Branden’s watchful eye has not gone as planned. Will Hannah ever have the chance to be on her own and live her life on her own terms? With him out of town for an impromptu vacation, she spreads her wings a bit to live her life, but things aren’t exactly as she expected them to be.

He is living a life he really doesn’t want but has no choice in the matter. His uncle took him and gave him a future, and he owes him for that. The only problem is that he doesn’t really want to do what his uncle expects of him. If he doesn’t though, it could mean that he has no future or life at all. When he meets the little rabbit in his bar, he is intrigued by her and her response to him. Rafe can’t seem to get away from her or get her out of his mind. Rafe may lead a life of crime, but his real passion is in his studio. He’s not what he seems.

I enjoyed this book and the characters. Rafe and Hannah are both trying to live the life they want but can’t seem to catch a break and find that life. They are both under the watchful eye of family members and are drawn to each other inexplicably. Hannah has a huge secret and Rafe has only stumbled upon part of it by helping her get away from Branden’s abuse. This story is full of action, secrets suspense and dangerous people. The characters have so much more to them and the discovery of the real person is so interesting to me. I had a hard time putting the book down. I give this story a 4.5-star review and cannot wait for more of the story and getting the answers I need. If you like dangerous men that have a soft side, curious women, organized crime, and suspenseful stories, you will love this book.
