Ella

Since I was a little girl, I have been surrounded by hate, death, murder, and slavery. I’ve been guarded my whole life by my brother—Raze, the kingpin of the underworld and the most feared individual in the United States of America. And then further more guarded when I found out the president of The Devil’s Own MC was my long lost half-brother. Being tossed around from one extreme protection to another has left a part of me yearning to break out of it's cage. The part that I've tried to sugar coat and hide, because if she's unleashed, everyone would see just how much like my brothers I am.

Panting, wanting, needing to unleash the side of me I’ve always known was there.

My secret is mine and my brothers.

Only they know what I hide and why I hide it. How I fight for love because if I don't, my rage would win and I’d be a mere shadow of the girl people have grown to know.

But I broke.

And the man who held the hammer that shattered the walls I spent years building to cage in my rage—was a psychopath.

REVIEW


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One of the things I love most about reading books by Amo Jones is the surprises she always has in store for me. That woman’s mind creates books with such scintillating wit, spine-tingling horror, angsty romance, and phenomenal characters that I can never predict how the story is going to go. I’ve been eagerly anticipating Frost’s book. And when I say anticipating, I mean I was one thirsty little -----, but it was definitely worth the wait.

While Frost was a diagnosed psychopath, Ella was raised to be one. Like typically recognizes like and these two connected like pieces of a puzzle. Or like oil and water, depending on the circumstances. Together they were sexy, combustible, incendiary, fierce, emotional, dramatic, hurtful, toxic. Possessiveness was a mild term to describe what they felt for each other. And this claim lasted years!! But each of them had a huge role to play in the plot that has taken its toll throughout this series, and some roles are easier to play than others. Some roles hurt others while at the same time keeping them safe. It was sometimes hard to tell the difference. But despite time and distance and people and complications, there was never any doubt in my mind that these two belonged together.

I’m intentionally keeping this review vague because, in truth, this story is far from over. There is still so much happening behind the scenes and I’m sure the author has something in store to wow us once again. I’m preparing myself for more darkness and destruction and I cannot wait to see all of these fearless characters again, fighting the good fight and loving like there’s no tomorrow. Next up - Miles!!
