Monster In His Eyes (Monster In His Eyes #1) by J.M. Darhower

Book Description:

Published: April 27, 2014

Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.

I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I’m thinking before I even do.

It’s alarming and alluring. It’s dark and deadly. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted but the last thing I truly need. Obsession.

It doesn’t take him long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it’s too late. He has secrets, secrets I can’t fathom, secrets that make it so I can’t walk away, no matter how much I beg him to let me go. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that’s both terrifying and thrilling. He’s a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.

I want to hate him.

Sometimes, I do.

But it doesn’t stop me from loving him, too.

Review –

OMG!!!!! This book is so HOT I’m surprised my Kindle didn’t go up in flames. Just a minute while I catch my breath.

Okay, Here’s the scoop on this story:

Twenty years ago Naz and his wife, Maria were gunned down in their home by his best friend, Johnny Rita and he has been planning his revenge ever since. He wants to make him suffer the loss of his loved ones(wife and daughter) and then kill all three.

Naz is an enforcer for a mafia guy named Ray and has killed many times over the years with no regret. He is a bad man.

Karissa thinks she meets Naz unexpectedly but Naz has orchestrated their meeting, has studied her and knows just how to play her to get her to like him. He’s rich and gives her gifts and takes her to fancy restaurants  and out-of-town on trips  all the while planning to kill her. You see, she is the daughter of the man who shot him and killed his wife.

They have sex almost immediately in their “relationship”  and he likes it when she fights back and so some of their sex is very rough and he even chokes her, almost to the point of passing out. Other times he makes love to her and sometimes they just f**k. All of the scenes are HOT.

Along the way, he finds that he has fallen in love with her and no longer wants to kill her,even if Ray (his dead wife’s father, does, and she says she loves him too, but he still wants revenge against her parents and uses her to find them.

Karissa finds this out and realizes that he’s had this plan the whole time and that probably everything he has ever said to her has been a lie and she tells him she hates him. End of book one.

The emotions felt by Naz and Karissa are deep and dangerous and both know that their being together is not good for either of them.

YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK.

The Passenger by Lisa Lutz

Book Description :

Published: March 1, 2016

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Spellman Files series, Lisa Lutz’s latest blistering thriller is about a woman who creates and sheds new identities as she crisscrosses the country to escape her past: you’ll want to buckle up for the ride!

In case you were wondering, I didn’t do it. I didn’t have anything to do with Frank’s death. I don’t have an alibi, so you’ll have to take my word for it…

Forty-eight hours after leaving her husband’s body at the base of the stairs, Tanya Dubois cashes in her credit cards, dyes her hair brown, demands a new name from a shadowy voice over the phone, and flees town. It’s not the first time.

She meets Blue, a female bartender who recognizes the hunted look in a fugitive’s eyes and offers her a place to stay. With dwindling choices, Tanya-now-Amelia accepts. An uneasy―and dangerous―alliance is born.

It’s almost impossible to live off the grid today, but Amelia-now-Debra and Blue have the courage, the ingenuity, and the desperation, to try. Hopscotching from city to city, Debra especially is chased by a very dark secret…can she outrun her past?

With heart-stopping escapes and devious deceptions, The Passenger is an amazing psychological thriller about defining yourself while you pursue your path to survival. One thing is certain: the ride will leave you breathless.

Review  –

Five-star-feedback-on-oDesk

This book is a roller coaster ride of new identities, new cities, new “friends” and new secrets .

Once I started listening to this book l found it enthralling and very hard to stop listening to, but  if I’d been reading I know I would have finished it in one siting.  It is that good.

Though Tanya,Amelia-Debra is not a saint she is NOT a murderer and as she moves from tow to town and takes on new names to hide in plain sight, we learn what brought her to this point inc er young life.  She was only seventeen when she was forced to go on the run by her mother and the father(a very rich influential man) of the boys also in the car at the time of the “accident”. Now it’s been ten years and she’s on the run again and this time someone is trying to kill her and a handsome sheriff in Wyoming is trying to help her.  Which one will get to her first?

Action packed, very fast paced, a bit (or a lot) on the unbelievable side  and a heart thumping read that will stay with me for a long time.

I HIGHLY recommend it!  Five Stars *****
