Talia Tolstaia dreams to break from the heavy clutches of Bratva life. She dreams of another life--away from the stifling leash of her Russian Bratva Boss father and from the brutality of her work at The Dungeon, her criminal family's underground death-match enterprise. But when she stumbles upon her family's captive who is more monster than man, she starts to see the man underneath. A powerful, beautiful, damaged man whose heart calls to hers. But sacrifices must be made--blood for blood...life for life...souls for scarred souls...
Dark, savage, and beautiful. I don't know how, but Tillie Cole surpassed RAZE. When Luka, aka Raze, seeks justice for his dead best friend, he never expects to find he had a brother; one who is living the same hell and torture that Luka was able to escape from. He's known as 221 and he is the living experiment of a mind altering drug. 221 only knows to kill.
Talia just wants a vacation, but when Luka brings 221 to her sanctuary to allow him to detox from the drugs, she finds herself mesmerized by the brutally scarred and lost man. And when the memories return - Zaal, aka 221, will exact his own justice.
Tillie Cole ripped my heart out with this story. I was in a book coma for days after reading it. She manages to dig down deep into the mind and soul of her characters and shred you with their feelings - from Luka and Kisa, to Talia and Zaal. 5 stars and a book hangover!
