Pam's Rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

First in a brand new series featuring the members of the Nine Circles Club—friends bound together by power, secrets, need…and the love they will find and stop at nothing to keep. 

"Passion always comes at a price.

Gabriel Woolf is unstoppable. A ruthless businessman, he has perfected the art of revenge. Ever since his mother’s death, Gabriel has harbored only one wish: To take down the man who ruined their lives. But all bets are off when he meets his father’s step-daughter, Honor St. James. Beautiful and innocent, she is everything Gabriel never knew he wanted—and now there’s no turning back...

Is her desire worth the risk?

Honor wasn’t born yesterday. She knows that Gabriel is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, willing to cross any line to get what he wants…herself included. But Gabriel’s passion for Honor—in spite of her connection to the man he hates the most—cannot be denied…and the feeling is utterly mutual. Can Gabriel be trusted? The only thing she knows for sure is how he makes her feel. And she can’t keep herself from coming back to him, over and over again…"


Gabriel has grown up rough and tough and full of anger and hatred. Wanting revenge for his mother, for the life they had or the life they could have had. After finding the key to that revenge in the name of the man… Deciding to take advantage to get the man at his worst he decides to use his best friend’s sister for intel.

Honor is not without her own issues of the past which include a brother who left her, a father how died when she was young, but she did have a step-father who loved her and her mother. When her step-father needs her help she finds herself in need of Mr Woolf and his connections. Mr Woolf has his own set of rules, which Honor reluctantly decided to follow in hopes to close the deal. What she didn’t expect was to start to have feelings for this man.

Slowly Honor starts to see the good inside this scorned man. Can she get him to see things from her perspective? Gabriel reveals secrets that  she fights Can she give  him the things that he wants at the risk of losing her family as she knows it all over again?
This book is full of dark secrets, money and power, anger and deceit. But as dark as it is there is passion, caring and desire that will draw you in. Can these things bring the light back? 

Looking forward to more of The Nine Circles.
