Degraded. Ravaged. Dirty 

I fuck. It’s all I’m good for.
People pay thousands just to have a taste of me.
I have to obey for the sake of my brother. As long as I’m the perfect slave, David remains safe.

A life of depravity and cruelty is all I’ve ever known … until her. 

I might be damaged, but I’m not destroyed. I crave revenge for what was done to me. I have a need to kill, to feel their lifeless blood dripping from my fingers. 

But I also crave her. She makes me feel. She makes me want. I just have to make her see me. The man. The fighter. 

Freedom. No one is ever truly free. She doesn’t want to enslave me, but damn, I’ll willingly be a slave to her heart. 

When my past threatens to take her from me, revenge and wrath burn hot through me. 

She’s not just worth living for. She’s worth killing for.

On one of these missions her and her business partner come across Sophia and Jack. She spends millions setting them free and buying their freedom. The day arrives to seal the deal of taking Sophia and Jack home to 'The Sanctuary' both are beaten and bloody, barely alive, both in and out of consciousness. 

Both slowly heal but it's Jack that River finds the hardest getting through to, his nightmares, his demeanor, his lack of showing compassion to other saved slaves.

Slowly River breaks down all his walls and something beautiful unfolds. Both maybe broken but together they are whole.

♛ MY THOUGHTS: ♛ 
This isn’t about puppy dogs and unicorns farting glitter over the world, this book isn’t for the faint hearted, it’s raw, it’s gritty, it’s disturbingly good. This author goes that extra mile when it comes to giving us a unique, dark, gritty believable read. She knows how far to push her readers and pulls back when it's needed so it's not too dark or too gritty just the right amount of all the goodness to keep us eating out of the palm of her hand.
