Sophia Cova lived a quiet, normal life, shadowed in sadness after the loss of her parents in a tragic airline accident. With her older brother being her only living relative and her anchor, Sophia is sure she’s destined for a brighter future. But that was until she was taken. 

Stolen from her mundane, orderly life, she was drugged, and woke to every woman’s worst nightmare.

With only four grimy basement walls and a rancid mattress, she loses her sense of time, and preserves what’s left of her dignity by hurtling herself into the safety of her mind. The men, the beatings, they come and go with no reaction, until she hears one word that sends an arctic chill through her body. Sold.

On the eve of Sophia’s bidding, at one of the largest sexual slavery rings in the world, all hell breaks loose in the mansion of horrors. Gunfire and screams erupt all around her, as panic rises. 

Snatched by one monster only to be taken by another, Sophia slowly starts to learn that not everything is as it seems. When secrets unravel, and the twisted game of cat and mouse ensues, The Puppeteer pulls his favorite strings and chaos brews.

Lives are lost while the clock ticks, and only time will tell who will be killed next…

This one came out with a bang from all corners!! I honestly had no clue how this was going to play out but I never expected the dark intensity and brutal passionate moments. I underestimated everything when it came to this story and I’m smacking myself for not being as prepared as I should’ve been. 

“My body is in tatters, my mind is in shambles, but my heart, my heart is broken beyond repair" 

Sophia is the very definition of a good girl. She’s a hard worker, stays out of trouble, and she keeps to herself at all times. Being close to her only brother and getting his phone calls in the bright spot in her week and she wouldn’t have it any other way. But you know what they say about being comfortable in your own space? Don’t be.

Kidnapped, lost, broken, with nothing but darkness all around her, Sophie, is now looking at her new normal and it’s not good. What happens when the life you had suddenly gets taken away from you? How do you get that back? Being a fighter just became her new shield and for better or worse, this girl is not going down without a fight. 

Creed is an a league of his own. After being a part of Sophie’s rescue, he knows that he’s still not a good person and no one could ever make him see differently. But Sophie has different plans for this brooding bad boy and when they find themselves in danger again, everything changes.

I have to say that I really loved this one!! It was raw and brutal and yes I did cringe a few times, I loved it!! I loved the intensity, the desire, the fight and I loved this heroine. Sophie was remarkable, and I really admired her strength and drive. I wanted to smack Creed a few times because quite frankly, he made me stabby but I grew to love him and respect what he was trying to do. Now as for the cliffhanger, fuuuuuuuuuuck!!! I’ll leave it at that.
