Hmmmm…..I really didn’t expect this! This book was a struggle for me to reach the end. I had a Love and Hate it relationship with this book. The book had a great synopsis, but it was just Muah! You have Earl Valentine who is known as the Beast in the underworld. He deals with everything a crime lord can get his greedy little fingers on.
This book was not really my favorite, because it was based on Earl who wanted Ashley with a passion and he sees her as his property. I also didn’t like the fact that Earl is paying Ashley for her virginity. Earl was very demanding and didn’t really see Ashley as young woman with her own mind. It’s like he was the King and Ashley was a peasant. Honestly, their relationship did not mesh well. I believe these two should not have been together at all. Earl should have been matched up with a stronger female who doesn’t take Earl sh*t!
Ashley was given to Earl to protect her friend Emily and to settle a debt. Ashley is quiet and is conflicted. She wants to comprehend why she is falling for her abductor. Throughout the story towards the middle, we do show Ashley getting a backbone and standing up to Earl. It was too much by this time, the back and forth. This book was well written, but it did not live up to its potential. It was missing something…and it’s a 3 – star read for me.
