“It is definitely not a hearts and flowers romance. It’s dark, erotic, gritty and wonderfully twisted.” (Jezabell Girl & Friends)
In the dark underworld of Ashville, crime, deceit, and blackmail reign supreme. Everyone wants that little piece of leverage—that one small key to getting ahead.
Aubrey would be happy—and lucky—to simply make it out alive. After falling in debt to one of the city’s most dangerous men, she found herself caught in a dispute between two brothers who will do anything to see each other suffer. Aubrey knows she’s only a pawn in their game and her only hope is to find some key of her own—a way to guarantee her own safety and the safety of her family.
Colt has a long and sordid past with the criminal element. He knows how the game is played and has found himself on all sides more times than he cares to remember. Aubrey is his newest escape route, but their tentative alliance is doomed to crumble if Colt can’t find a way to fulfill his end of the bargain with Devlin.
If you’re looking for rainbows, butterflies, and happy endings coated in chocolate and caramel, turn back now! This story deals with dark themes and intense situations that aren’t suitable for sensitive readers. If you’re looking for an intense roller coaster of emotions and situations that will warp your sense of right and wrong and drag you through the debauched underworld of crime and deceit, then you’re in the right place.
This is a work of serial fiction, so it will be released in distinct parts with no resolute ending until the end of the series.
About the Author
Skye Callahan is the bestselling author of Irrevocable a dark romance that ran away with her emotions and led her on a whole new writing journey. She enjoys exploring the darker sides of life through her fiction, whether through paranormal creatures or the depraved underbelly of human nature. Her other works include the follow up to Irrevocable, Bend Don’t Break, The Redline Series, The Fractured Legacy Series, and Bound and Unbroken.
Her love of reading and writing started at a young age and she has been blessed with a family that continues to support her dreams to be a full-time writer. She has lived in Ohio all of her life, where she enjoys taking long walks through cemeteries with her husband (when the insane Ohio weather permits), studying local history, and trying to make peace with the neighbor’s cats.
This is a great book and picks up right where Ignition leaves off. We start to get a glimpse that Devlin is not playing by the same rules as Colt and Aubrey (but are you really surprised?) until it becomes painfully obvious that Devlin wants his own form of revenge. Colt works to try to keep Devlin off their backs and tries to keep up his part of their deal. We also start to get tiny peeks into Aubrey’s past/family but not enough to know why she ended up in the city with almost no contact with her family; and a couple of hints of Colt’s past. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I both love and hate this series; I love that it’s so dark and twisted but I hate that I don’t have the complete series to read at once.
