Blurb:

Life is never easy. It’s made worse when you’re thrown to the vipers by your own father.
Happiness was never promised to Jake, but he allowed himself to hope for it for a short time in his life. He’ll soon learn happiness is a privilege destined only for a select few, and he may not be one of the lucky ones.

My View:

Frustratingly short once more and the almost a 180 in Weldon’s behaviour is just creepy! Does anyone else agree?

Kol always makes his brutalised MC’s appear soft to the reader making the subsequent abuse seem that much worse. Jake didn’t live a life that was flowers and roses by any stretch of the imagination but nor did he know such pain and depravity. But just as suddenly as he was damaged his abuser’s behaviour changes once again and you can’t help feeling nervous and wondering whether it’s the calm before another storm.

Still no sign of his brother. I’m amazed and slightly pissed off that his father that his father is still alive. Where does Trey fit into all of this? Also, where is Zach and what is his role? So many questions Kol – so many dilemma’s and the only thing guaranteed is that you are going to fuck this poor boy up some more before there is any relief!

Bring on part 3.
