Lucian
A life free from sin. 
For seventeen years, I have lived and breathed those words. But there is no balm to the war inside my soul.
Until her. 
The mysterious beauty too lethal to taste. She’s a thief, a con, the essence of everything I loathe. Still, she lures me in with her lying eyes. 
In the dark of night, she came to confess her sins, and in the light of morning, I plotted to steal her away. 
She will be my ruination. My damnation. My biggest regret. 
So help me, God. 

**
Gypsy
A word of advice? Don’t show me your vulnerabilities because I will find a way to exploit them. I learned the hard way to take what I want from life with no regrets. 
Until him. 
He’s one of the most hated men in America. A soulless criminal attorney. A recluse. And as of five minutes ago, my new husband. 
He wants to keep my secrets and collect my tears, but he should know that a wild animal can’t be domesticated.
I don’t know how to love men. I only know how to leave them. 
With everything I want.

I walked into my office and found the tall, leggy brunette waiting for me. She wasn’t the only one either. Beside her, Ace played around on his phone while Birdie flipped through a magazine.

I wasn’t surprised to see her this soon. In all honesty, I’d expected her to show up at my door last night, demanding to have Ace removed from her presence. But it appeared as though they survived the night, just barely.

“May I have a word with you?” Gypsy asked.

“You may,” I told her as I checked my watch. “In thirty minutes. When my lunch is finished.”

Her eyes narrowed, and she planted her hands on her hips as she stood. “You must be joking.”

“I don’t joke,” I responded flatly.

She stalked forward, stopping only when she’d breached the narrow distance that few people ever dared to try with me. She was reverting to her baser skills of seduction, but I doubted she even realized it. The instinct came naturally to her, often rewarding her with whatever she wanted, and admittedly, it might have worked on me too once.

She smelled of coconut oil and sunshine, and it encouraged a vivid image of her lying out on the beach. I could almost bet that if I were to touch her skin, it would be warm too. So warm that it would be easy to get lost in. She probably counted on it, but I was prepared to let Gypsy know from the start how this game would be played. There were only one set of rules, and they were mine.

“Do you want me to throw a fit?” she threatened as her eyes darted around my office. “Because I will.”

Now that was funny. My lips tilted despite my resolve to remain dry as toast.

“Do you think it would be the first time someone threw a fit in here?” I asked her. “I’m sorry to tell you sweetheart, but it wouldn’t.”

“It would probably be the first time someone accused you of holding them hostage in front of your employees.”

I turned and gestured for her to go ahead.

“Be my guest.”

Her lips tightened, and she clamped down on her jaw. After watching her for so long, these unintelligent threats from her were a disappointment. Of course, she wouldn’t make a scene because she had more to lose than I did.

“Thirty minutes,” I repeated. “I’ll have my secretary call for you when I’m finished.”

I walked into my office and shut the door behind me.

"It was ironic, considering that she had been forged in the depths of hell."

I learned something new about myself. Apparently, I'm a masochist. Because A. Zavarelli is a sadistic author who probably has a jar to collect the tears of her readers. I am ruined, and I loved every minute of it.

The synopsis for this story is vague, though very intriguing, right? Now that I've turned the last page and read it again, it makes perfect sense. But, in order for you to get the full benefit of the author's brilliant mind, you need to go in blind and enjoy the journey. I suggest you prepare in advance with a supply of tissues. They will have many uses as you enjoy this mind-bending tale that you will not soon forget. It will stay with you long after the final page. I also recommend that you start reading early because once you start, stopping won't be an option.

"I'm only good at one thing and it isn't a good thing."

Still intrigued? It just gets better and better and worse and worse. My brain feels broken and my heart feels too big for my chest.

"I was emptier than I thought a broken man could be. But for the first time in a decade, I remembered what it was like to be whole."

Do you love reading about broken characters as much as I do? Well, guess what? This is a BOGO, you get two. Do you like alphas? Then you will love Lucian. Do you like badass females that will do anything to protect those that they love? Survivors? Imagine what happens when an alpha tries to be bossy to someone who's had to fight every step of the way. Yup, you're getting there, but I guarantee that your imagination is nothing compared to the author's.

As I savor the high I'm feeling after making it to the end of this emotional story that I didn't want to end, I'm feeling grateful that it's only the first installment in a series. Sin City Salvation series introduced me to some very colorful characters that have stories of their own to torture the author with and I can't wait to be on the receiving end once they are on my Kindle. The line forms here...

 

 

 

A. Zavarelli is a book junkie, cat lover, and traveler when plagued by intense cases of wanderlust. She likes all things chocolate, books that come with warnings, and putting her characters through hell. 

Her tales have been known to flirt with darkness and sometimes court it unabashedly altogether. Revenge themes and tortured souls are her favorites to write and this gives her an excuse to watch bizarre and twisted documentaries in her spare time.

She is slightly obsessed with Theo James and funny animal memes. If you don’t mind these things, you should add her on facebook.
