My name is Noah. I’m not a nice person. This isn’t cupcakes and candyland, love.
I’ll take you, break you, and offer you to the highest bidder without a second thought. You’re mine now. It’s business, nothing personal. You wouldn’t understand, and I’m not going to explain it. Sorry, love, you don’t mean a thing to me.
Just know that there’s a monster in every closet, and I’m in yours.
Author Note – This dark romance novel contains themes that may be discomforting to some people. If you are sensitive to depictions of violence, then this book is not recommended for you.

Man’s POV = Ethan, Woman’s POV = Cerys
There is a light at the end of every dark tunnel, no matter how dim it may seem.
It's told from three points of view, the two main characters Angeline and Noah, and a seconadry character, Chastity. The female points of view were written by Cerys. Noah's point of view was written by Ethan. Their voices were very different and distinct. I loved Noah's voice and connected with him right away. I found Angeline's voice to be a little formal and distant, but that is explained later in the book.
It's a story of survival and the effects and consequences that torture and mind games has on a person. There are some sex scenes but the sex isn't the main part of this story.
I was sucked in and could not put this book down. It was horrifying, heartbreaking and intense but there was also friendship, hope and love. Angeline and Noah were so messed up, I had to keep reading to find out why! The more I learned, the more I began to care for them and love them to the point that I was rooting for them to find their form of happiness together.
I reccommend this to anyone who enjoys dark romance and I will be reading more from these authors.
