“Maybe I am a monster. But I’m your monster. I’ll fight for you. I’ll kill for you. You’re mine. Always. Wherever you go. I’ll find you. Always. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you.” Kayne
Kayne Malkin was 30 year old, cold blooded killer who worked for the Russian mob. He was tall, dark, and handsome.Peter Spencer had betrayed the mob and taken some important evidence with him, he just couldn’t handle the woman trafficking and had to get away from all of it. Peter knew the risk he was taking by leaving but he just couldn’t handle it. Therefore he left and had been running for over eight months. Kayne’s latest assignment was to find Peter’s only family, his sister Laura and get Peter’s location from her. When someone betrays the mob they pay with their life and there is no mercy.
Laura Spencer was 23 years old, living on her own with no friends or family other than her brother Peter. Even though she hadn’t seen him for a long time she knew he was on some sort of trouble. Peter would always write her postcards to keep in touch with her but she had to destroy it once she read them. It was the only thing she had from Peter that kept her waking up each morning. Her reality was that she did not have a social life other than work. She had couple of boyfriends that she ended relationships with before they got too serious because she was not able to have children and her past was too dark she didn’t want them to see who she really was. Her childhood left her traumatized grew up with no mother and her father would lock her in a dog cage days at a time as punishment if she didn’t obey. Peter would take some of the punishment and always get her out of the cage. She was traumatized and tried to live her life as normal as possible but she failed miserably. The only person who truly understood her was her brother Peter who at age 16 ran away and came back for her to save her from that miserable life her father had created. I loved Peter so much for it.
“Worse than the fear of the life awaiting her, it was the stab of knowing she was leaving nothing worthy behind that hurt the most” Laura
Kayne was all sorts of frustration, he had no feelings but somehow after watching Laura for two weeks and planning to bring her down to his organization for interrogation he saw something in her that he couldn’t stay away from. He wanted her for him; he wanted to make her his pet, his submissive to do as he pleased. He found out she was damaged and it pained him so. He wanted to help her and the only way he was able to do that was to take her in as a prisoner in his home. He knew that the mob wanted her for trafficking once she spilled where her brother was at and he wasn’t going to let that happened. Yes, he was annoying as hell like if she wouldn’t obey to what he said he would punish her. She was annoying too because she would cry a lot but the truth was she was scared of him having living in an abusing household made her brake easily.
He seduced her to trick her to get the brother’s location and he took care of his assignment which was to get the evidence peter had and kill him.
“He moved down her body, kissing every inch of her, taking her breast in his mouth and swirling his tongue around her nipple as she moaned in response. His fingers then dipped down her belly and touched her wetness as he continued to kiss and nip her firm soft breast….He brought his mouth to her slit, his tongue continuing the sweet torture his fingers had initiated….He licked his lips with delight, staring at her hungrily as he removed his jeans and then lay his body over hers.” Kayne
He promised her he wouldn’t kill him but regardless Peter died even if he didn’t do it himself. Peter knew it was the only way to save his sister and I was a sobbing mess around this. I couldn’t see straight after this chapter. When Laura found out she blamed Kayne and stayed away from him for a month. I didn’t blamed her, I hated him too. Gah…It’s paining me writing this right now, I feel like my chest is going to get out of my skin.
“Take care of her.” Peter
“You have my word.” Kayne
“But he did come back for me. He found me. He saved me…And I didn’t. I didn’t save him…I didn’t…” Laura
Kayne knew that she would never be able to trust him again and he understood but even after he completed his assignment he knew he couldn’t let her go. One, because he was a selfish motherfucker and in a sick way he somehow had fallen in love with her. Two, even if he let her walk away the mob would not want any kind of treat. They will still get rid of her and she will still have to die or worse put on their trafficking business. He wanted to save her so instead he married her. It was the saddest wedding ever. I wanted to punch and hit something. He got promoted a day after the wedding and left her for four weeks. She was already broken after childhood, her brother’s death and now Kayne and this horrific marriage however; she had fallen in love with this monster. She knew there was nothing waiting for her if she left. Kayne gave her the power and money as Mrs. Malkin. She had parties every night shopped every day and pretended her life was amazing while missing her monster who was trying to stay away longer so he didn’t have to see how much he had ruined his love.
“His Laura, he’s loved her with the ferocity of a mother and her defenseless babe. He’s loved her with the awe that brought you to your knees in the presence of the divine. With his entire wretched being, he’d loved her, as a man hopelessly loves a woman. She would never know, she would never hear this from him. This one regret burned him alive as his heart bled out”. Kayne
However, when he finally returned, he was surprised to find a different Laura. She was stronger and determine and she ignored him like he meant nothing to her and that completely pissed him off and made me so happy. Two can play the same game motherfucker. She had hired new help and one girl in particular she purposely had hired her to test Kayne’s trust and see how far he could go at being a monster. Sadly she found it too quick that he was a sick fucker and it was because he couldn’t control her like he always wanted to. He would bend her but would never break her as he wanted to. She became cold and a killer like him. I was so not expecting the ending, like WTF did just happen?!! Honestly, I was shocked but I understood why it had to happen and now I can’t wait for the next book because the weak crying Laura has died with her beast and now the new Laura Kayne Malkin is going to get revenge and I hope everyone pays.
“Mrs. Malkin would rise. Mrs. Kayne Malkin would meet her cursed life in her best attire, with her eyes dry and her hair perfectly set. She would understand the necessity to survive, to remain strong. Mrs. Kayne Malkin would devote the rest of her life to avenge her Master.” Laura
