Black Sheep by Zara Cox
Rosa's rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones
"I'm caught between the rock of a merciless father and the hard place of a demon son."
When I read the first book in this series, it rocked my world. I fell in love with the author, and nothing has changed. I'll be at the front of the line for any new works, because this author is a word wizard that slays me with every book. They are filled with pain & passion, love & lust, secrets & suspense.
Axel is one of three brothers. They have no love for each other, having been raised by a cold father that pitted them against each other. He got his jollies by watching them suffer. While that behavior might be favored in the underworld that he lived in, it did nothing to instill respect or love from his sons. At least not the good kind. The kind of respect he received was based on fear of failure and the punishment that would result.
Axel and Cleo were teenage sweethearts. They lived next door to each other and only had eyes for one another. Though they were young, their feelings and their passion were beyond their years. Their connection was so intense that they believed nothing could break it.
Until something did.
This mind-bending, spell-binding, heart-stopping story had me in it's clutches from the get-go. I was caught up in the drama, locked in, desperate to learn more, but reluctant to get to the end. I fell hard for Axel. He's cocky, bossy, and filthy rich with a filthy mouth. And did I mention sexy?
"A naked Axel Rutherford is worthy of so many accolades. None of which can definitively describe the perfection in front of me."
Yeah, reading in multiple POV, being inside the head of both characters...sensual overload. But I'm not complaining. I have plenty more panties in the drawer.
I feel like shouting from the rooftops how much I love this author. Where did she come from? How did I not know about her until recently? She's like the best kept secret that deserves to be shared. Here's me telling you, you need to read both books in this series,
You can thank me later...
