⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Ares has a sad, misunderstood past. Ever since the day of his birth, he’s been treated like an outcast, a monster, but he’s a good man that has taken a dark path. Now he’s a member of the Kings of Mayhem, Tennessee chapter and the Sergeant At Arms. He just wants to live his life on his own path, but when the dancer catches his eye everything, he thought he wanted goes out the window.
Rory made a deal with the devil and now she has to follow through with it, or does she? Rory has lost everyone she has ever loved and when she is manipulated by someone that should love her, and told lies, her life is complicated. She finds herself being torn in two directions and isn’t sure which to follow, but when danger finds Ares, her path is cleared up. She’ll make Ares her top priority.
These two will go to any length to protect each other, even though they’ve both had tragic pasts, their future could be bright. They just have to give in to what their hearts want. Ares and Rory are complicated. The past has a way of coming back around at times and making one’s life a mess. Lies, secrets, betrayal, and cruelty are all part of this book, but there is also a great cast of characters that really make these stories so good. I’ve loved the Kings of Mayhem since the very first book with Cade and Indy and none of these books has been a disappointment. Ares is a great character, and his story is raw, emotional, and tragic, but it ends with an HEA. I give this book a 5-star review and I am patiently waiting for the next book in the series.
