When I had saw this book at the book store, the title alone caught my attention. Usually I hardly read romance novels ever, but this storyline intrigued me to read more. Given that there are some morbid scenes and very adult like content I would recommend it to mature audiences. It is very fast paced and keep’s one on their toes as they read. I personally love this book but some of the content described such as a marriage prison and a focus mechanism disturb me greatly. Other than that, pretty good.
