“Everything inside me reeked with the need to reap vengeance. It was all I lived, all I ate, all I breathed. Until her. Until the imposter with green eyes.” Kill
Arthur Killian aka Kill, the president of Pure Correction MC; wanted revenge for the past eight years. At only twenty-six years old he had managed to block feelings and just keep memories to keep his rage and hate for revenge alive. He was lethal with his tattoos, green eyes and his power for revenge. Somehow he managed to become the youngest prez in history, but it was all due to the stronger power of avenging the lost of everything he lost. He was frustrating as hell, he meets this girl that reminded him of a girl he once loved but refused to do the right think he was even going to sell her and omg I had rage I saw red. I couldn’t believe he was so cold and could let the pass go. His “Give me time and I’ll tell you” was killing me all the mystery was driving me mad.
Cleo Price, had amnesia due to a trauma; she had no memory of who she was. She meets Arthur on a horrible situation but all she wants to do is get away from him and run as far away but where? To whom? She did not know. Somehow as the days progressed she realized she felt save with Kill. There was something about this man that she knew she had to know, he was her way to finding out what happened to her and who she really was. When she was with him she found herself remembering her past, she had a lot of flashbacks of her past she couldn’t understand. At age twenty two years old, Cleo was coated with scars and lots of tattoos over her scars. Scars she obtained on a fire but what fire?? What really happened?? OMG this book was so full of mystery and left me with so many questions.
Kill and Cleo find their way to each other they both had a dark past and it hurts so much to remember what each of them went through but somehow they knew that what they had was different. The feelings they were having couldn’t be made up.
“He tore me out, stole me away, changed the whole prophecy of who I was meant to be.” Cloe
“She made me want things I’d sworn never to want. She made me weak. She made me hate.” Kill
This story was amazing I enjoyed every second of it. I went to the stages of emotions, sad, upset, anger, hot and bothered and anxious. The events at the end of this book had me wanting to throw my kindle away but of course instead I cuddle up in a ball and cried myself to sleep because I hurt so much for these two characters. The author had this way to get you so attach to them and then she makes you hurt for them so hard I am still struggling and trying to figure out how on earth this is going to end. Yes because there’s a huge cliffhanger. I must wait patiently until their conclusion comes out. I recommend this book if you are looking for a romantic book full of mystery angst and revenge. I wouldn’t really say this is a MC but I still enjoyed it a lot.
“The truth had the power to kill me. The truth was despicable.” Cleo
