This story is a little slow in the beginning however, it picks up and the story flows from there. This is a multi POV read so if this is not your style than you will not like this book. But I will say give it try. ;) Okay, now that that’s out the let’s get down to business.
This book is a mental rollercoaster ride. You see the true art of manipulation in the hands of the devil himself. It’s all a slow game to Nico; Women are his game pieces of choice, he uses them like the pieces on a chess board. Each move is meant to move him closer to checkmate while making pawns out of each of the women.
This is a deep read that will have you say, “What the Hell did I just read?” The author is very descriptive, it is a little of an hindrance to the story but I think she wants you to be in the moment to feel, smell and see everything the women are and how Nico uses it to his advantage. He uses everything thing around him to get what he wants.
Now each of the woman have a different use to Nice and he uses them according. They each also gain something from him that can improve their life. However, they feel it is only depended on if he is in their life. Luna is one who fights to get her life back even if means losing along the way.
There are so many little things that I want to tell you about but it would ruin the story for you. Therefore, if you love a good MindF@#K than this is worth the read!
Did I mention this is the author’s first book? Yeah, it will only get better from here. My Star rating is 4.5
