From the shadows, I’ve tracked her every move.
I was just supposed to watch her. But now, I can’t stop.

She’s my obsession. My addiction. My poison.
Watching her isn’t enough.

The savage in me won’t be satisfied until I take her and make her mine.
One taste and I’m hooked. Too bad for her… I’m never letting her go.


Stalked. Hunted. Captured.
He took me from my life and locked me away in his compound.

The ex-con. The big bad biker. Inked, bearded, and inhumanely sized.
And yet, every time he looks at me, I melt.

This broken beast hides demons behind those brutal eyes. I hate him… and I crave him. His touch, his words, his lips.

When my enemies come for me, he vows to protect me as long as I do what he says. I’ll be secure in this prison he created for me.

But who will protect me from him?




He dragged his nose through my hair, breathing me in. And then he pressed his lips against the shell of my ear, repeating the process all over again as he kissed his way down my jaw. When he finally got to my lips, I was hungry and wet for him. Dinner was scattered on the floor around us, long forgotten as his fingers grazed the hem of the silk robe against my thigh. He pulled it aside, then repeated the action on the other leg.

Leaning back, he studied my face before his eyes drifted to the part of me he’d exposed. I was open for him. Vulnerable to him. He could see everything, and I didn’t try to hide it. This was the broken, filthy part of me he needed to see. It was now or never. He could take it or leave it.

His attention drifted up while he tugged at the loose fabric covering my breasts. When he was finished, all that remained was the rope around my waist and the fabric pooling at my sides. I held my breath as I waited to see what he would do next. After everything that had just happened, more than anything, I wanted him to want me, and yet I was terrified he couldn’t. It didn’t make sense, but it was undeniable. He’d seen me at my worst, and I wanted him to tell me it was okay. It didn’t matter how fucked up I was, he wanted me anyway.

Just like with everything else, Huck did it in his own way. He reached for the zipper on his jeans, slowly dragging it down while his eyes locked onto mine. They were filled with dark promises and threats that reflected in his voice.

“Tell me to stop, Birdie. If you don’t, I’ll never let you go.”

“Don’t stop.” I forced the words from my raw throat. “Don’t you fucking dare.”

I know when I open a book by Ashleigh Zavarelli that I’m going to get a dark and suspenseful story that satisfies my soul.

This story is about Birdie and Huck aka Ace. Two survivors of a past that torments them in the present. Birdie is on the run, never able to stop for fear that the demons from her childhood will catch her, and Ace is learning how to live for the first time since being a prisoner not only in body but of his mind.

I found myself fully invested in these characters and held my breath as they fought through their emotions and learned to trust.

After a year spent watching Birdie, she’s under his skin and evading his thoughts so when Ace is propositioned by Gypsy to protect her sister at any cost, he already knows his answer will be yes. What he wasn’t prepared for was the hurricane of emotions that would come with meeting his match.

When their worlds collide it’s a storm of passion brewing under the surface and a battle of wits as a disguise. These two are determined to get the upper hand on each other but as they both soon come to realize, they’re better off working together then fighting each other at every turn.

With an obsession dangling over her head, Birdie is prepared for battle but what she doesn’t find out is that she’ll never have to do it alone again. She’s in his blood now and Ace is ready to protect her at any cost. Even if that means dragging all the Skelton’s in her closet to kneel at his feet.

I don’t want to give any of the story away because there are definitely some twists and turns that you’ll want to experience for yourself but the journey these two go on will have you rooting for them til the very end.

“Someday, everything will be perfect.”

I absolutely love how Ashleigh took the story full circle and used it as a mechanism to connect Ace and Birdie on a level where only they can relate. It was the driving force that brought them together and would be what would seal their fate.

I can’t wait for more books in this series. I’m hoping Kodiak will be next!!

This story is an MC romance but honestly it’s not what the story is even remotely about. The MC aspect is there but it’s only the setting to what really takes place. These characters own this story and their damaged hearts are the focal point.

Definitely recommend!!
