Harper left me to rot in jail for a crime that she committed. I was put away for five years. During that time, there was only one thing that got me through the night – the desire to get even.
It was all too easy to kidnap her. She’s now locked away in my basement awaiting her punishment. I intend to find out by any means necessary why she lied. If that means hurting her, so be it. She’s put me through more than any man should have to cope with in a lifetime, so a little payback is only fair.
If she were my only problem, life would be peachy, but my parents are giving me hell. They’re trying to force me into marriage, and wriggling out of that will be a full-time job.
I’ll get what I want, eventually. Everyone has a breaking point – and Harper will be getting close to hers shortly. That’s a promise.
ARC provided for an unbiased review.
Harper Wilkinson was between a rock and a hard place. Being taken by Brandt Browning and his sensual torture was nothing compared to what Gabriel Rodriguez had in mind. They wanted to know her secret, but the answer they’re seeking might be better left uncovered.
Let me just start by declaring I’m #TeamGabriel all the way. He unapologetically stole the spotlight from everyone else. I had high hope for him at the end of the last book and I’m glad his character lived up to my expectations.
Harper needs to fear me, and I’m going to make sure she does.
The story flowed better than the previous book and I liked how we got to learn more about the characters’ backgrounds and their motivations. Now with all the build-up and that ending, the next book better starts with a bang lol!
Beautiful Torture is a story of conscience and retribution. I’m looking forward to whatever debauchery waiting in the next book.
