Publisher's Summary

Pleasure has never been so deadly.

Rose Cassidy doesn’t truly live; she just exists. Numbing herself to fear and pain is the only way she can survive in this cruel world. So when she’s taken as collateral by the notorious Danny Black in a deadly game of power, she’s thrown by the deep fear she feels rising within her. And, worse than fear, a profound desire. She’s heard tales of The Brit. He’s callous. Coldblooded. But no one ever said he was wickedly beautiful and darkly captivating. He sees past her mask, giving her a cruel sense of hope. But she must fight their twisted attraction or risk losing the one thing she survives for. 

When Danny Black took an enemy’s beautiful lover as security, he never anticipated the repercussions. Or the warped attraction they would share. Rose Cassidy pushes Danny to the brink of madness with her impenetrable façade and savage allure. He has to remind himself that she’s bait. A solution to a problem. Yet she evokes powerful feelings in Danny, and feelings are risky when you’re wanted dead by endless enemies. The most dangerous game is about to be played. But can either of them win? 

*This story is gritty, dark, edgy, and contains scenes that some people may find uncomfortable to listen. It is NOT for the fainthearted.

COMPELLING, LAYERED EPICNESS

You know that delicious feeling you get when, right from the start, you just know that this story is going to be epic.. and, the deeper the storyline goes, it delivers more. It has you holding your breath with its thrills and chills.. it contains chemistry that would burn if touched.. and its dark, tension-filled and dangerous chapters has your body thrumming in excited anticipation for the epicness still to come. Well, this is one of those books.. you know, the ones you hate to be drawn away from.. the ones you won’t stop unless it’s an absolute emergency.. the ones your family hates because they know they’ve lost you until the last word has been spoken. And for a while after that as you try to again gain control of your breathing.. as your heartbeat finally returns to a steadier pace.. and as reality slowly seeps back into your life while you digest and try to process the magnitude of a suspenseful dark romance written by a maestro.

Then there’s the faultless narration by two actors who brought their A game and skilfully brought the whole cast of characters to life. Their voices insight the terror, the tragedy, the tempest brewing, the thrills, the tense holding back in the teasing torturous first touches, the sexy temptations in the push n pulls and the twists and twinning of a damaged soul-to damaged soul bond bound to bleed and break. Every well-placed word came from Jodi’s gifted mind.. every deep dark layered chapter has been honed to perfection by the awesome world-building skills of a truly gifted author.. and the character angst, drama, conflicts and growth has been developed by a writer at the absolute top of her field. But the spinning of gold into platinum took the combined superior vocal and emotional talents of Shane and Vanessa.. I stand and applaud and thank all three of you.

Worth a credit? Nah… joking joking.. A NEVER-ENDING LINE FILLED WITH YES’.

Enjoyed BUT

I really enjoyed this listen. The story was really good and it kept me engaged the whole time. Vanessa was amazing and so was Shane, they made the story come to life for me. My grip you ask? To many sex scenes just for the sake of sex scenes. Please do not misunderstand me I love a steamy book but this just seemed way too much for no reason. I even found myself fast forwarding some of the steamy parts because it just took away from the whole story.
Other then that this is a really good listen and the Vanessa and Shane definitely makes this worth a credit.

Were we reading the same book?

I am so surprised to see all of the 5 stars! I usually don't review and I have never left a negative one but in this case, I just feel that all of the 5 stars were misleading for me. I did not feel this was worth the credit. I would never re-listen to this, It was tough the first time. The narration was amazing, but that is where the praise stops. I didn't feel like there was any character development, I thought the story was weak, and not well laid out. Usually the reviews are spot on and when people rave about a book I usually cant wait to dive in. This is the first one that I've read by this author, so I am going to try another one by her. Sorry if you loved it, and sorry to the author if you are reading this.

I LOVED it!

This is my first book by the author. I absolutely loved it. The Best part of it was the Outstanding narration by the Uber talented Shane East. He is my 2nd favorite narrator on Audible. The story was well told and I was on the edge of my seat at the end. (Playing it at 2x the speed so I could find out what happens) Well worth the price. Thank you Jodi for a great listen!

Need blood pressure meds!!!

***Health Warning*** I thought I was going to have a heart attack through most of this story!!! If I was any older or in lesser health, I might have literally kicked the bucket! Good gracious!!!!! Malpas is an exceptional writer but I haven’t felt this plethora of emotions since the “This Man” series...she outdid herself. Danny Black’s history, rage, lust, protectiveness, hotness...it was all too much and yet everything I needed. If this love is wrong, I don’t want to be right. The only thing that haunts me is some uncertainty pertaining to the ending. I’m a bit unsettled over it and truly needed an epilogue to ensure my survival from this crazy ride. Because of this, my rating is 4.5 stars overall with a 5 star narration. Shane East...oh my!!!!!!!! Don’t miss this one...unless you’re overly feeble 😉

Omg

Wow. Just wow! This book had so many twists and turns it kept me on my toes the entire time! There were some very explicit sex scenes that I could have done with out, just skipped over those. But the story itself was so addicting!! The last 2 hours of the book I couldn’t stop crying!!!!!

Danny & Rose

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Audible review. Dual POV. Standalone. While both narrators did a good job it wasn't particularly a standout performance. Mafia romance. Trigger warnings: lots of death; human trafficking; gun smuggling; rape; molestation/rape; kidnapping; alcohol abuse; cutting/self harm.

Danny and Rose are an unlikely couple. Rose was taken when she was 15, her baby (a product of rape) was taken from her moments after he was born then used to keep her in line for 10 years. Danny was rescued when he was 10 and raised by an arms dealer. When Danny's new father dies Danny is set to takeover his criminal activities until he sees Rose. Rose has been used as a pawn for a decade and when Danny takes her her world starts to spin in a new direction. The two are explosive together, angry and passionate but they finally find their way. Although not married they are engaged in the end. JP

All the Feels

I don't normally leave reviews, but this book sucked me in from the first page to the last. This is the first book I have read where I actually shed tears. The characters are so broken yet so perfect together. The best book I have listened to this year.

What a roller coaster

There are some SERIOUS TRIGGERS in this book. Lots of brutality. If you don’t want to read about children being beaten and raped don’t listen to this book. If you don’t want to read about babies being ripped from their mother’s arms and sold, don’t listen to this book. If you don’t want to read about women and young girls being sold, raped, beaten, and used, don’t listen to this book. The man slaps her in the face within an hour of meeting her so ......yum yea that’s a “no” from me on him being a monster with a heart. There is a HEA at the end of the book but by the time I got there my mind was scarred with all the bad. So really for me I’m left with so many bad memories for the couple. You get a little bit of happy and a whole bunch of sad.
But if that’s your jam then give it a listen.

The book is well written. Very well written. It’s a page turning for reading and a “can’t stop listening” for an audible.
I can’t give a bad review just because I didn’t like the hardships the characters went through.

The narration was on point! Shane Shane Shane.......wow.
