I want to be Rukaiya’s hero, but she’s made it clear she can take care of herself. Her fire burns me. Her fierce nature lures me in. She’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and I want her to devour me. She enjoys defying me and I love to taunt her.
I always get the girl.
Every. Single. Time.
And this time is no different.
He’s trying to be my knight in shining armor, but I don’t need him to be. That’s what I tell myself, anyway. Etienne doesn’t give up easily. He’s adamant to change my mind. Only, he doesn’t realize that being with me could get him killed.
As I push, he pulls, and one of us is about to get wounded.
Secrets. Desire. Violence.
Our love is volatile.
When secrets are spilled, nobody is safe.
My review: 3.5 stars
Rukaiya and Etienne have a wild story.
Rukaiya is mixed up with her father’s problems. But she can’t get away from him. She can’t escape because she knows he will kill her.
Etienne knows he has to protect Rukaiya even if she doesn’t want it. Why does he need to save her? Well, he doesn’t know. But something inside him tell him he needs to save her.
Rukaiya and Etienne get their HEA but the ride there is wild.
They are both stubborn. They both fight each other at every turn.
Secrets and betrayal. Twists and turns. Suspense and murder.
This book has a little bit of everything.
I did not connect with this book as much as I did the first book. I felt it took a while to get into the story. I was probably about 40% before I really got into the book but then I felt that the characters didn’t really develop. I wish I could have connected more with this book, but it just didn’t happen for me.

Great honest review, I’m sorry you didn’t connect with this book. I hope your next read is a much better one. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.
Sorry you didn’t connect with the characters as much as you would have liked!
Too bad, but to your credit – you stuck with it
That’s so disappointing to me when you really enjoy the first book in a series, then you’re underwelmed by the next. Sounds like a good read, though 🙂
Shame you didn’t connect with it as with the first book, but at least it was still a decent read. Great review.
