I was kidnapped on my honeymoon by three masked men.
I was told to stay silent and abide by their rules. But they didn’t realize I wasn’t a victim…not anymore.
The open sea was my backdrop for nine torturous days. During that time, glimmers of my fate were revealed by a man with the mysterious chartreuse-colored eyes. He should have scared me, but he didn’t.
He intrigued me. And I intrigued him.
He punished me when I didn’t listen, which was every single day. But beneath his cruelty, I sensed he was guarding a grave secret.
I was sold.
And in a game of poker, no less.
My buyer? A Russian mobster who likes to collect pretty things. Now that I know the truth, I only have one choice.
Sink or swim.
And when one fateful night presents me the opportunity, I take it. I just never anticipated my actions would leave me shipwrecked with my kidnapper.
He needs me alive. I want him dead.
But as days turn into weeks, one thing becomes clear—I should hate him…but I don’t.
My name is Willow.
His name is Saint.
Ironic, isn’t it? He bears a name that denotes nothing but holiness yet delivers nothing but hell. However, if this is hell on earth…God, save my soul.
All the pretty things, tome 1 : Bad Saint
Bon... schéma classique, un méchant qui a de bonnes raisons de l'être (et qui, finalement, ne l'est pas tant que çà), une héroïne au fort caractère, dite "incassable", mais qui succombe en deux semaines... On s'y retrouve dans le go-to dark romance. L'histoire en elle-même est élaborée, néanmoins, et on a un background intéressant ainsi que quelque plot twist qui donnent du rebond à l'histoire. Je suis un peu déçue que l'on ne sorte pas plus des sentiers battues ceci dit.
