Animal. Monster. Beast. That’s what they call Viktor Melikov, the man who hides in the dark … But even monsters need to be loved. The moment he sees the girl hired to dance for him, everything ceases to exist. It’s a feeling he’s unfamiliar with … and craves more than anything.
Alexis Kidd sells her body. Not because she wants to, but because she needs to. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to support her family and survive.
Now she must dance for a man hiding behind a veil.
But when the urge to take a look grows too strong … Alexis gets more than she bargained for.
More than Viktor was willing to give.
Alexis was selling her body to help her family. Viktor was a "monster" hiding in his castle. One chance encounter was all it took for him to fall for her. So when he had the chance to keep her with him he took it. He was addicted to her, soon he needed her as much as he needed air to breath. She didn't like being his prisoner at first, but later she wanted him more than her freedom, which was what she hated the most. Viktor had kept a few secrets from her because he knew that she would run away from him. What he didn't expect was that his number one enemy would come for her and for him for the final time.
It's a dark romance. It has a lot of dirty talks, many steamy scenes, stripping and dancing. Towards the end, there are a couple action scenes with guns and blood. Alexis was a very brave girl, fighting for hers and her sister's survival since they were little. She never had anyone to protect her so it was very weird when Viktor decided to do it. For the first time in her life, she was loved and cared for. Viktor was my favourite character. He behaved like a monster but he was a man with a heart of gold. His scars made him vulnerable but he wasn't afraid to go after what he wanted or show his true feelings. He could bring out different feelings to you. When he was acting like an alpha male he could melt your panties but when he was vulnerable you just wanted to hug him and hold him tight. One of the sweetest moments of the book is the epilogue. Now except from the hot delightful story, there's a bit of a lesson as well: the scars on your body don't make you ugly they make you stronger because it's a reminder of what you went through.
