I don’t hate this story but I don’t love it either. Probably a little too dark for me. But I have 2 more stories in this series to read so I will see how they go. I have to say I am very glad that Dornan had some heart left and showed it to Mariana even though he struggled with love. I think Mariana fell too quickly for Dornan but kinda works with the story as he did prevent her from being sold. This story was definitely full of twists and turns and I did Basically like that. There was a lot in this story: bad bikers, drug cartel, family, sacrifice, corrupt cops, drugs- of course- , dark secrets, violence, domination, enjoyment of pain to a degree, and so much more. Just didn’t love it but that is me.
