Tori McLeod moved to the big city to get away from her mother—and her past. Her new routine is destroyed when she meets a mysterious stranger who won’t take no for an answer. Sebastian intrigues her, but his eyes hold secrets she would rather avoid.
Sebastian Chelios, a hard-as-nails enforcer, is a new-in-town loner. He has to have her. Control her. Possess her. But he can’t—won’t—lose control, even though Tori’s innocence fascinates him. The last thing he’s going to do is love her, even after he gets her in his bed.
Losing control is dangerous, especially when someone from Sebastian’s past covets Tori, putting more than just her heart in danger.
Can Sebastian protect Tori from Jose’s sadistic obsession? If he gets his hands on her, will she make it out in one piece?
This is part one in a three book series. It is for 18 and over!
I just finished this book and I'm still trying to express how I feel about. I liked it. This isn't a simple tale and it wasn't until the end that there is so much more going on than I first realized. This is a story about evil vs. good and being the tipping point that could lead to either side.
Tori can be a bit naive, but that does not mean she's a weak character. Sebastian is complicated. He's the bad boy who is drawn to Tori's innocence. He tries to stay away, but between jealousy for her acquaintance with Brett, and his fear for Jose's obsession for her, Sebastian can't stay away.
I think out of all the characters in this book, I loved her best friend, Keisha, the most. I found myself frustrated at times with Tori's character and with her denial of anything bad going on around her. My fascination was intrigued with the revelations at the end of part one. I'm giving this book a score of 4-stars and I'll be reading the second book in this series to see what happens next.
