Add to Goodreads:
From the shadows, I’ve tracked her every move.
I was just supposed to watch her. But now, I can’t stop.
She’s my obsession. My addiction. My poison.
Watching her isn’t enough.
The savage in me won’t be satisfied until I take her and make her mine.
One taste and I’m hooked. Too bad for her… I’m never letting her go.
Stalked. Hunted. Captured.
He took me from my life and locked me away in his compound.
The ex-con. The big bad biker. Inked, bearded, and inhumanely sized.
And yet, every time he looks at me, I melt.
This broken beast hides demons behind those brutal eyes. I hate him… and I crave him. His touch, his words, his lips.
When my enemies come for me, he vows to protect me as long as I do what he says. I’ll be secure in this prison he created for me.
But who will protect me from him?
He dragged his nose through my hair, breathing me in. And then he pressed his lips against the shell of my ear, repeating the process all over again as he kissed his way down my jaw. When he finally got to my lips, I was hungry and wet for him. Dinner was scattered on the floor around us, long forgotten as his fingers grazed the hem of the silk robe against my thigh. He pulled it aside, then repeated the action on the other leg.
Leaning back, he studied my face before his eyes drifted to the part of me he’d exposed. I was open for him. Vulnerable to him. He could see everything, and I didn’t try to hide it. This was the broken, filthy part of me he needed to see. It was now or never. He could take it or leave it.
His attention drifted up while he tugged at the loose fabric covering my breasts. When he was finished, all that remained was the rope around my waist and the fabric pooling at my sides. I held my breath as I waited to see what he would do next. After everything that had just happened, more than anything, I wanted him to want me, and yet I was terrified he couldn’t. It didn’t make sense, but it was undeniable. He’d seen me at my worst, and I wanted him to tell me it was okay. It didn’t matter how fucked up I was, he wanted me anyway.
Just like with everything else, Huck did it in his own way. He reached for the zipper on his jeans, slowly dragging it down while his eyes locked onto mine. They were filled with dark promises and threats that reflected in his voice.
“Tell me to stop, Birdie. If you don’t, I’ll never let you go.”
“Don’t stop.” I forced the words from my raw throat. “Don’t you fucking dare.”
My ARC Review:
I missed book 1 in this series, Confess, and jumped straight into this one – its my own fault for missing out on book 1, I feel as though I’m missing some stuff from the plot but certainly not enough to impact on my rating on Convict – which is a massive 5 star read!! OMG I loved it, I devoured it, its raw and gritty and powerful and everything I thought it might be and more. A stunning read in every sense of the word!!
Two damaged souls, both at different places on the spectrum of life, but these two could not be more perfect for each other. Birdie and Ace could not be more different, but when they get together, its just wow!!
Ace has some massive issues from his past, very much unresolved and goes through each day just existing, until Birdie, who becomes his whole reason for even breathing. He will protect her at even his own expense, with everything he is. She has become his obsession after watching her for a year, burrowed so deep in his skin but he does not realise until he has to take her in to keep her safe.
It’s a brilliant read, very emotional at times watching these two broken souls together trying to mend each other, but utterly compelling from start to finished, I couldn’t put it down. I loved Ace and his growly dark possessive persona and how Birdie became his light and his salvation. Awesome! Can’t wait to go back and read the first one now! Highly recommended reading!!
