Book Review: Severed by Vengeance

 

She was mine.
Made for me.
Born to ruin me.

Evangelina :
I lived my life surrounded by luxuries, love, and attention.
While at the mercy of lies, death, and deceit.
I was tired of being just a pretty face.
The woman who always had to prove her worth.
When tragedy tears yet another gash in my heart, he was there to help mend my grief.
But there was a mystery hidden behind those alluring diamond eyes.
A whisper of ghosts and trauma from his past.
Red flags I knew I shouldn’t ignore.
Yet I couldn’t help the feelings blossoming within me or the fire that scorched my skin under his touch.
Derek Cain held promises of love and protection.
But what if he was who I needed saving from?

Derek :
As a child, I knew nothing but hate and pain.
I was a soulless, unlovable bastard bred into a killer.
Bound by blood to the world’s most obscure and elite society of global puppeteers.
For years, I fantasized about taking revenge on the man who’d abandoned me.
And when his time finally came, that’s when I saw her .
His weakness.
Detective Evangelina Cruz was mine to taint, use, and ruin.
Until the lines of vengeance and obsession blurred.
And she consumed my every thought.
Though my secrets would destroy her, I’d bathe the world in blood before letting her go.
Would the love we forged in darkness prevail in the light of truth?



My Review

This book started out strong and I was hooked. I definitely felt the chemistry between Derek and Eva. Although, I did feel like Eva feel too quickly for Derek being someone who is a detective. I thought, she would be a bit more cautious of strangers. Yet, at the same time I can't really blame her as Derek instantly oozed appeal that I was drawn to him right away as well. 


Derek may have seemed like a villain but there is more to him than first appearances. He is complex. Learning about his past helped to better understand why he did the things he did. He really had genuine feelings for Eva. Their attraction to one another is sizzling. They shared some very steamy scenes. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
