I don’t know what I was thinking when I hired someone to attack me. Maybe I was bored, or lonely, or there was a void so deep inside of me that I needed something explosive to fill it.
It was supposed to be safe. A thrill. A way to break through the monotony of everyday life. It was an illusion of danger that I could walk away from as soon as it was over.
Except that it wasn’t. Because I had been in danger long before I ever invited it into my life.
My mission is almost complete. The bubbling boil of vengeance that heats my blood might finally simmer.
She is the last piece of the puzzle. Once I destroy her, everyone who ever hurt me will have paid their debt.
It was supposed to be quick and easy, but as soon as I met her it got complicated.

I spin again to face him, and I hike my dress up just under my ass, while straddling one of his legs. His eyes are affixed on mine, like we are only two people in this crowded club. I ride his thigh, rubbing my bare pussy against him, as I lick my lips and run a hand through my hair.
My chest presses against the firmness of his torso, my nipples stiffening from the contact.
“Please, dance with me,” I beg in a mewl.
His hand threads through my hair, the other grabs my ass and pulls me up and against his thigh, applying more pressure against him.
Brick by brick.
And we move in sync: slow, rhythmic grinding. Eye to eye. Lids barely parted. Sweat beading. Low moans vanish into the air. The deafening music drowns out any conflicted feelings that remain. He tugs my hair and extends my neck, grazing his teeth against my chin, the tip of his tongue awakening the sensitive nerve endings. His hand squeezes my half-exposed ass, and everything lights up. My nipples and clit, a partnership of arousal, tense in ecstasy as they stroke against the man who sets me on fire. He is also the only person who can put me out.
My moans grow louder, but they are drowned out in the safety of the music. And like the flashing lights in the club, I become ablaze with flickering energy, throwing my head back, arching my spine as he supports me, as he lets me use his body, his smell, his taste, his overpowering masculine energy to put out the blaze that he ignites inside of me.
I collapse onto him, grasping his shirt, taking in his smell, the warmth of his broad chest, completely lost in the sensory experience that is Tax. I smile as I burrow my face into his chest, drunk off the mixture of alcohol and lust.

Maybe I keep telling myself he's more than just a heartless psychopath to cope with the situation I'm in. Because the reality, that he purely feels hatred towards me, that he sees me as nothing but a piece of garbage he can use and dispose of, that I did something to earn this treatment, that I am truly alone right now, is so much harder to bear.
Mia may have always given off the appearance that she is completely put together and has total control of her life, which she does-maybe a little too much control, but there is something missing from her life. When it comes to men, romance, and sex, she has never been able to find what she is looking for-what she doesn't really tell anyone, and hardly admits to herself, it that she like her sex a little on the rough side... ok, a lot on the rough side. So much so, that she has never found anyone comfortable enough or able to give her what she needs. That is what prompted her to hire someone to attack her. It was only supposed to be living out a sexual fantasy in a safe way, but little did she know that what was hiding in the shadows would irrevocably change her life.
Tax has spent the last fourteen years solely focused on vengeance and everything is finally about to reach it's conclusion. Mia is the final piece, the one part of the plan he will enjoy executing the most... until he comes face to face with her and everything changes in an instant. His perfectly planned out revenge gets blown to shit in her presence and he's forced to change course. He may actually enjoy this even more though, as long as he remembers the end game-Mia will pay, in blood, she just doesn't know it yet.
as soon as I leave after having you, I want you again. And then even when I have that, it's not enough. When I see another man look at you the way I do, I want to kill him. I want to swallow you. I want to consume you. I want to possess you.
This is not your typical romance, it takes a drive on the dark side and parks it there which is what drew me to this book in the first place. Just take my warning for what it is ~ this book will not be for everyone. It's violent, devious, degrading, dangerous... the list goes on. It will take you places that aren't always comfortable but it all serves a purpose. These are not cookie-cutter characters, they are actually quite screwed up; I'm talking monumentally fucked in the head here. Some of them are redeemable, some are not, some will make you want to commit murder, some you just wanna hug, but none will leave you in more of a mess than Tax. That man was such a confusing headcase. Yes he comes across as a heartless, soulless, bastard-and he is to a degree- but you at least understand WHY. I can't imagine dealing with what he has in life and not turning demonic. But there is another side to him, a side he desperately tries to fight off but Mia brings screaming to the surface. It gives you hope, even if he does his level best to crush that hope at every turn, it's still there. Now Mia, despite her devious sexual preferences, was an absolutely amazing woman. Strong, resilient, smart, caring and so damn forgiving. She was the polar opposite of Tax but turned out to be just what he needed, even if he didn't want to admit it. We spend half the book trying to figure out just what the hell this harmless woman could have done to end up on Tax's revenge list, at the top of it no less, and when the truth comes out... it was devastating. Nina had no problem diving into situations most would avoid to take you to the heart of these people, and the result was a story that will stay with me for a long time. I do have to admit I was a little disappointed when I found out this was a standalone, the ending -while nice enough- left me with some questions and a lack of closure. Now, this may have been intentional on her part considering the rest of the story; don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting to be left with feelings of sunshine and unicorns, I just wish we could have seen maybe a glimpse into the future or something-some way of knowing that eventually everyone turns out okay...ish. Or maybe I'm a freak who just doesn't know how to say goodbye and I'm being selfish wanting more-I am more than willing to admit that. In the end, if you like your books full of darkness, turmoil, and yes-crazy as hell hott sex, than this is for you. It certainly worked for me and fed my devious side nicely.
So much has changed since that first day. It happened tear by tear, thrust by thrust, kiss by kiss, but over time Tax and me have evolved into something beautifully ugly. The painful journey is just as important as this moment here because without it, what we have now would not have the same meaning.
Tax is still a savage beast, but now, he is my savage beast.
