They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares. He is a brilliant lawyer. A skilled criminal. A beautiful liar. A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.
Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.
She is a starving artist. Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom. Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down. She paid the price.
Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate. That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t. So she hates me. Big fucking deal. She better get used to me.
*I was given this title in exchange for an honest review*
Vicious has been nothing but a terrible bully to Millie. He even ran her from her home, her family, everything all because he couldn't handle his own feelings. Ten years later and they meet in a diner she works at and he corners her in the bathroom... yeah. So because she's tight on cash and taking care of her sick sister, she agrees to work for him for a lot of money. He's mean to her once more but he does slowly, slowly, get better towards her. They end up falling in love and Vicious gets everything he wanted, including revenge for what happened to his poor mum. So even though it seems like there will never be a HEA, there is a HEA!
Now I did enjoy this book and found myself wanting to read it even when I wasn't but I'm torn because it mentions pot way too much. Usually I give a book three strikes and then DNF it but when it comes to books like these, I still read them. Even though drugs are a hard limit for it and it makes me uncomfortable. I used to think content warnings were unnecessary but after being burned so many times, I would love one for drugs. Then I could pass books and move on with my life.
So I knock two stars for pot and how it was used. It was never looked down on. I've read books like Crank and those get high ratings because it shows what drugs can do to you and your life. Any book that looks on drugs badly is one I can stomach.
Anyway, I know that most people aren't like me and they give zero shits about drugs being in their books. Moving on, this book is well written, the characters are well developed and it's addicting! You will not want to stop reading it as all. So be warned that if you start this, clear your day.
