Giselle thinks she has the perfect life. Her fine and sexy husband, Giovanni, is obsessed with his perfect wife and gives her whatever her heart desires. Giselle thinks her husband can do no wrong. What she doesn't know is that his lucrative adult film company is not as legit as it seems, and Giovanni's seedy dealings put his precious wife in danger.

Giselle is kidnapped by a vicious drug dealer named Bryce, who is hell bent on revenge after his sister comes up missing and he believes Giovanni is responsible. Bryce takes the thing he knows Giovanni treasures most. He plans to torture Giselle, but instead he finds himself falling in love with her. He reveals the truth about Giovanni and the news pushes her right into Bryce's arms.

Giovanni wages a war against Bryce and anyone close to him, leaving several dead bodies in his wake. Now that he has his wife back, Giovanni thinks things can return to the way they were. Giselle, however, can't get Bryce out of her system, and continues to see him behind Giovanni's back. As the war between these two men heats up again, Giselle has to decide if being with the man she loves is worth risking her life.

The story was better than I expected. As an author, I'm usually very critical, but I was very surprised. The book had a lot of twists and turns. You'll think you know where the story line is going, but then the author will suddenly throw a curve ball, killing all predictability you assumed the story had. The author writes in a very simple fashion. No big words or long drawn out paragraphs about the little things. Some authors will take up a whole page describing what someone's living room looks like lol. No, not Karen Williams. Although she's short, sweet & to the point, she's still descriptive enough that you feel like you personally know and can relate to each of the characters. You'll find yourself yelling at the book or wanting to slap some of the characters b/c her writing style and ability to draw the readers in is THAT good. The things that happen in this book are pretty vile and raw. I wouldn't advise anyone whose ever been a victim of sexual assault to read this book. Why? Well, without giving it away, a few rapes happen in this book, and each rape is very descriptive and detailed. She makes you feel like you are right there, in the room, like a fly on the wall seeing everything happen. The mark of a great author!! I'm almost sure there won't be a sequel. She ended the story very thoroughly & all of the characters that you'd assume would show up in any kind of sequel pretty much meet their fate in this book. I really really really hope there is a sequel though!! Although I rented this book at the library, I wouldn't have been disappointed had I bought it 1st and read it. Now that I've seen Karen William's work, I am now working on finding some of her other books & reading them. With an imagination like hers, I'd find it almost impossible to believe that other books of hers aren't as good. 5 stars!

This book was great! Wonderful twisting story that keeps you intrigued to the very end. A lot of unexpected things happened in this book that can make the readers want to evaluate
and make wiser decisions with not just choices but in people as well. This book also brings a lot of over looked issues to the table. Some that go unrecognized and harm us as a nation everyday that they do.
