Defiled, marked and left for dead at fifteen, Juliette Portland nursed and fed her hunger for revenge for six long years. The men who not only attacked her, but murdered her father, had been family of sorts. Her father's MC club brother and his sons. People she grew up with. They held her down, took turns until she had almost no life left. Twenty-one now, Juliette Portland is no more. She will introduce herself to Dornan Ross as Samantha Peyton, Sami, and proceed to take him and his sons down for what they did.
Prepared to infiltrate the strip club run by Dornan, who is now the president of Gypsy Brothers MC, she walks in ready for an interview. First person she encounters is Jase, his youngest son and her once friend. Also the only son who refused to participate and raged against the attack on her six years ago.
The plastic surgery and alterations do their work, he doesn't have a clue who she is. Neither does Dornan, who immediately takes a liking to her. Something Sami didn't quite expect, but will take advantage of nonetheless.
Being set up as Dornan's girl in the MC clubhouse means she has direct access to all she needs to set a plan in motion. The only one she can't quite figure out just yet is Jase. Six years ago she knew who he was, but would he have turned out just like his brothers?
OMG!!!! Talk about brutal and raw, but so friggin' good!!!
Alright, first off a few words of warning, I am not kidding when I use the word brutal......some of the material in this book is disturbing; rape, excessive violence, murder. In fact, the entire premise of the book is disturbing. It is dark and deals with a level of depravity and evil you don't even want to think about.
HOWEVER, it also deals with a young, kick-ass heroine who is so consumed with anger and revenge, she is not afraid to face down the devil to get it. And she does just that! The things she will do to obtain her goals are beyond imagination. But the irony is, that where before only hatred and resentment lived, now that she is finally acting on it, some of her humanity returns, and she finds feelings awakening in her, that she has not felt in the last six years.
Jase is going to be an interesting complication, hardened from what Sami knew before, but not the same as the rest of his family. He has no clue who she is, but her role as his father's whore confuses him. He sees more than her exterior appearance implies.
Oh man, this promises to be SUCH a good series, and I am not a big fan of serials, but I am already good and hooked on this one!! The writing is flawless, strong and without hesitation. There is no faltering in who the writer believes her characters to be. It's a very clear case of what you see is what you get, and boy is that something I love!! Give it to me straight between the eyes! And that's exactly what Lili St. Germain has done......with a two-by-four!!!
✨A dark, haunting and carnal tale of revenge.✨
