This is the second book in the Betrayed series and this one is dark and about as gritty as it gets! This can be read as a standalone since this is the first book I’ve read by this author and I was fine. I would like to warn that this is a book that covers some pretty disturbing subject matter and there are some that would probably have a bit of a difficult time reading this. I personally love dark reads and the darker they are the more I love them so this wasn’t a problem for me at all! Kylee has been abducted and is being held and viscously tortured by her freaking mother! This blew my mind and made each and every one of the already difficult to read torture scenes that much harder to get through for me. As a parent of three children, I just honestly can’t even wrap my mind around the fact that a mother would be physically able to do that to her child, let alone enjoy it like Kylee’s mother did. Alex is Kylee’s lover and he’s a member of a special ops team that is hell bent on finding Kylee and exacting revenge on whoever was stupid enough to target her. He’s having an extremely difficult time with the fact that he doesn’t have any control over the situation and each day that she’s gone is wrecking him. There are so many things that happen throughout this one story and it definitely kept and held my interest the entire time. I definitely recommend checking this one out, especially if you’re a big fan of stories that are extremely dark in nature.
