I am promised to a monster. A man twice my age. He plans to keep me like a pretty doll, making me move to whatever whims he has.
Trapped, all my choices are taken away apart from one.
A handsome stranger. He tells me his name is Lucas and for one night I’m able to leave my cursed future behind. The pull to Lucas is unexplainable and undeniable. One thing is certain—I have to find a way out of this arranged marriage. I have to claim my life back. And Lucas might be the key.
Sariah has secrets. I can see it in her eyes. There’s a sadness that swirls within them, a fear of what we’re doing. I want to know who put that look on her face and protect her from it. I will burn the world to ashes to keep her safe.
But when the truth is revealed, and I learn she is being forced to wed a man who has a reputation darker than my own, I realise how much danger Sariah is in. I’m not sure the might of the Fraser crime family will be enough to save her life.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
She was promised to a monster but was determined to have her fist experience be of her choosing. Sariah has never had a choice in anything to do with her life. After tragically losing her mother due a dangerous secret, Sariah is raised by a man that has no affection for her and only kept her to use as tool for himself and for power within his territory.
Lucas Fraser is no stranger to arranged marriages or women, but when he meets a sexy, innocent looking woman at the club he can’t deny the interest he has for her. He expects it to be a one night and done, but he can’t seem to get her out of his head and since he doesn’t know who she is, he has no way of finding other than return to the club and hope she returns as well.
The Fraser’s are a powerful family and what they want they get. The kids were raised to rule, and do as they are told by their parents, thus making them all despise their parents and hating to have to do their bidding. When Lucas’s parents want to gain more power and find out that another mafia family is looking to gain power by marrying into a gang to gain strength and hopefully overpower the Fraser’s. When the Fraser’s decided to derail their plans Lucas and Sariah find themselves in a no-win situation, or do they? I love this story and this author. I was introduced to Lucas and the Fraser’s in the Untamed Son’s series, and I love that series as well. The Fraser’s are a dangerous crime family and will go to any extent to keep their power and territory. I give this book a 5-star review and can’t wait for more of the Fraser’s Crime Syndicate.
