Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.
My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart behind.
Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said it should be—but it was perfect.
The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naïve to understand that even though he’d been my captor, he’d broken the shackles on my soul.
Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after.
Now I know better.
"We’d destroyed each other, so together we could rise from the ashes."
Frankie and Anteros, what can I say...other than I want to live in their story forever! There were so many twists. There were so many turns. This world is dangerous, and nothing is safe. Their world is hot and undeniable. This book will stick with you, and leave you satisfied and utterly exhausted from the roller coaster of suspense and delightful darkness it drags you through. I couldn't stop reading this story. The pages never stopped turning. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK! It was a perfect end to a addictive beginning. I strongly suggest this duet to every dark story loving reader out there!

Beauty is a whole new...Beast. Nothing is the same. No one is safe from the truth.
There is a fine line between love and hate- so they say. I'd say these two have it mastered. Darkness calls to darkness and Lord help everyone in the way.
The twists and turns in the psyche of these two will get you lost. Finding the truth may cause more rifts...and in the end only the strong survive.
I found I liked Beast more in this one. I was able to understand him better than in his book. It made it more enjoyable. I liked the change in dynamics between them. It somehow made their "relationship" more real. So take a walk on the dark side...

I was going insane, absolutely aching, and it was just instinct to touch myself. He grabbed my hand, lifting it so my fingers were just below his chin.
“Greedy girl,” he said. “Don’t you know your orgasm is mine? I own this.” He sucked my fingers until they were clean and I moaned, rubbing my thighs together. I was so overstimulated, I was sure I was going to come just from the friction. I rubbed my thighs harder and he laughed darkly, pushing me off him. I fell to the ground.
Eyes still locked, Anteros reached behind and flipped over the coffee table. The glass crashed and shattered. Some shards hit my thigh, but I didn’t think about that or the mess or the possible danger because moments later Anteros was on the ground with me.
He crawled between my legs and spread them wide in the new space. I got to my elbows, watching him rapt.
“If you come without permission,” he said, licking a long, razor sharp trail from behind my knee to inside my thigh, “you will be punished.
