Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Bare Naked Words and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising". 



I am Zane Teague, feared by men and desired by women, and I was born into a life of luxury, riches, and crime. Destined to take my place at the head of the family, and to be the ruler of our world.

Finally, I was crowned King, with the criminal world at my feet,

I take what I want, when I want it.

My name is revered, but there is one thing that I desire - have to have - but will never attain, no matter how hard or dirty I fight.

Bailey Roach is the woman I crave, the woman who should be in my bed. She's the queen I want to rule beside me, and I've loved her for most of my life. But she's also my best friend's sister and I swore to him that I would never touch her, never let the evil and chaos in my world taint hers.

Despite the promise I made, she is all I can think about, and the pain of wanting what I can't have is now my greatest weakness. Her hold on me has the potential to turn my world upside down and destroy everything I've worked for. Worse than that, she has the power to rip my heart and soul apart... yet, I have to have her.

When need engulfs you, it can only lead to disruption.


My Thoughts:

Zane was a very cocky young man.  He wanted his father’s approval but at what cost. It caused him to grow up quickly.  Zane shows the reader how some people regard women.  If you are having issues in your life then this may not be the story for you because it could trigger something.  I do applaud the author for including such a tough subject.  If it’s hard to read then I can imagine that it must have also been tough to write.

This is one of those stories that makes you thankful that this is a work of fiction.  Some of us tend to be a little naive about what really goes on in the world.  We live in our own little corner and tend to forget how tough life.  We don’t want to know about those that have two sides – the side they show to the world and the side we really don’t want to get to know.

The author tells this story from Zane’s perspective.  All the impressions and emotions are his.  There are those close to him who own his heart.  There are those that work closely with him that he demands respect.  If you cross his invisible line, watch out.  This is one of the darker mafia stories that I have read.

By having Zane tell us his story just adds to the darkness.  It’s really hard to find the romance in that.  There are glimmers and bright spots but you may need to be patient to see them.  Can a hardened man find, and hold on to, the woman that will break down his walls?  Once he has her, will his life let him hold on to her?  When I got to the end I had to wonder if I will get to see any of these characters again.  Will we ever know if Zane is ever truly happy?
