I always fight hard, fuck harder, and never let myself get personally involved. But my assignment, to apprehend Eduardo Miguel comes to a grinding halt when I find a missing federal witness held captive in his basement. It becomes fucking personal, fast!
Keeping Farrington safe, even if it—or more likely she—kills me, is now my only mission. But she’s terrified and fights me at every turn. Earning her trust becomes more than a way to save both our lives, it’s like an addictive drug. I need it—I need her to put her faith in me—the way I need air to breathe.
When she begins investigating the hidden parts of my soul, I almost can’t deny her.
I know I can protect her. I know I could pleasure her in one explosive night she’d always remember and I’d never forget. What I don’t know is how I could be falling so fucking hard. There’s no way in hell I can let that happen; getting too close to me comes with an ominous curse that won’t be defied.
I thought I had nothing to lose. I was wrong.
I should’ve never taken that dangerous shortcut through the unlit alley to the frat party. It was where I saw a fellow student brutally murdered and how I made my way onto a cartel leader’s hit list.
As a federal witness, I thought I was safe in the protective custody of the FBI . . . that is until I woke up chained in the monster’s basement.
When a powerful and lethal soldier claiming to be a bounty hunter shows up, I’m not sure if he’s rescuing me or dragging me towards a greater hell. But after a series of experiences that defy death, the overwhelmingly sexy, dirty-minded, Navy Seal trained and hot blooded bounty hunter—who obviously plays by his own rules—just might win my trust.
He is not an ordinary man. He’s strong, dark and deadly; his past is mysterious and his motives unreadable. He seems to be made of the stuff of myth and legend, and of ink and steel.
Is Ryder Axton for real? Or is he employed by my captor for a more sinister purpose?
When Death comes... will we be strong enough to defy it?
Wow, This was so nothing like the other stories in the series. I was amazed on the different route this one took. The author has once again blew my mind completely away in the writing of the story. The amount of details int the story that lead up to the so wonderful end is just wow. The characters this time around were harder to figure out, but they gave so much more of themselves. Both really strong and amazing. They fight for everything that's worth something to them. The had the tension, passion, sex and strength that really made this story shine and my attention hold. This action packed story is a 2 person POV it handles raw emotions and a fight in the characters that are hard to cope with in a normal daily bases in the world. The author really made Ryder and Rachael flow great together and really drive it home about their love. Which of course is one of a kind type. Ryder, strong fierce and very independent, not looking for love just wanting to live each day out. Falls for the one he shouldn't have. Rachael, Strong willed, very independent and thought she had her life on track until one night changed it forever. Being able to read this story in 1 day had my emotions all over the place, not to mention that by the end I so wanted more and more of the story hell I craved more of the Brothers of INK and Steele. So far each brother has had a unique life and a great way to start the rest of their lives. MUST READ story I could sit here and give you spoiler after spoiler but I wont just read the damn thing and trust me.
