My ARC Review:
This was my first book by Dani, a RH read, dark and twisted, enemies to lovers, captive, why choose – it was a good engrossing read from start to finish, hot and steamy, dark, gritty and violent.
The story revolves around three young men – Falcon, Crow and Hawk – their lives and their families’ lives were destroyed when they were younger, vengeance has brought them together as a threesome against the one man who perpetrated the crimes against them – Mahoney. They have turned into vigilantes, renowned for their trade, feared and wealthy.
Lucille is the daughter of Mahoney, abused and broken by her own father, she was responsible for him going to prison and has fled to London to start a new life under a new alias. But The Fallen have tracked her and have her in their sights, especially when they find someone else is snooping around their target, their whole life revolves around extracting vengeance from the daughter of Mahoney, their plan to cause her as much pain and suffering as they have suffered. But what they didn’t expect is to be attracted to her.
Each of The Fallen have different characters and have formed a unique bond between them, as a family unit, friends and sexually. Lucille is the one missing element that draws them all together as one. Of course they try to fight their attraction to her, they want their revenge after all, but she is feisty and sassy, has a dark side that is drawn to her kidnappers and the way they treat her, showing her submissive side and how she likes to be taken roughly. She wants to know their stories and how her father is involved in the downfall of their families, and she gets under their skin.
Their interactions are hot and steamy, with some MM, MMF, MFMM action involved, but the treatment of Lucille isn’t as dark as I expected it to be, with their sights set on revenge and retribution, she gets away with it lightly. Yes there is some graphic violence and degradation, but it’s nowhere near as bad as I was expecting.
That said it was a good read, fast paced with an engaging story line that held my attention.
