AMIE'S 5 STAR REVIEW
So not a standalone !! Read book 1 - cliffy - then onto this book and yup you guessed it there will be a book 3 !! I was lucky to not have to wait in between books 1 & 2 but I am already feeling tortured having to wait for book 3. So many ups and downs in this piece of the story I honestly couldn't tell if Gia was coming or going but I wasn't about to put the book down until I finished it. I read each book within hours and then had to lay down and attempt to calm myself and collect my thoughts.
By now we have an understanding going on. Draco and Gia could be such a power couple yet Gia claims she is using Draco to get what she wants when he thinks he has her under his thumb. It seems like a peaceful arrangement and Gia plays her part well. After the horrible ordeal that happened at the end of book 1 we find Gia recovering and seeing a bit of a different side of Draco. Does he really care for Gia or is he just hungry for the power she will help him achieve ?? We also see that due to Gia's hurt she isn't really much different than Draco and she wants to inflict revenge on those who wronged her that night. This book is full of detailed torture and definitely more violence than the first. There is a constant fear of Draco's life and Gia keeps you on edge because you never know what she will do. In book 1 I was a bit upset with how Draco turned out from the young man we met in book 1 prologue BUT now I honestly think I may kind of love him !! I know it is sick BUT he is a man of power and he delivers what he says he will yet you can see his heart soften and at times I almost feel sad for him. It is a dark and twisted story but there is some emotion, romance and serious heat. Gia may have come off as a timid and hurt woman but she is far from that and I enjoy her defiance almost as much as I enjoy her softness. Definitely some WOW moments and the last 1/3 or so of the book is a rollercoaster ride.
