#MondayBlogs 131 Preview Review Presents Transcending Darkness @AirickaPhoenix @shannonihayes #Romance

The 131 Preview Review Presents

One: Sign the contract. 
Juliette Romero had a debt to pay, a debt that wasn’t even hers. But it was the only way to keep her family safe and all she had to do was sell her body and soul to the devil.  Killian McClary wasn’t called the Scarlet Wolf for nothing. He’d been the head of the McClary Organization since he was fifteen and had built a reputation for being a ruthless son of a bitch when it came to running the city’s underbelly, not to mention merciless when it came to punishing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. Only results. Juliette, with her shy smiles and hot little body was a weakness unlike any other and yet he was powerless to resist one more taste of her sweet flesh. 

Two: Become his for a year. 
When given the choice between her life or her body, what could Juliette possibly do, but submit to a man whose very name invoked fear in the hearts of others? She just never anticipated falling for his dark, hungry eyes and clever hands, or the way the beast in him made her feel oddly safe and cherished.  But what will happen when Killian’s dark past finally catches up to him and threatens the woman he can no longer imagine himself without? What will happen when both sides find themselves caught in a web of passion, lies and broken promises? Can Juliette tame the wolf or will her love for him devour them both? 

Three: Don’t fall in love. Boundaries will be crossed, loyalties will be tested and lives will be changed forever. 

Well doesn't that sound just peachy?? Let's dive in shall we?

      Okay, so it's the middle of the night and I've just blown through the entire 506 pages of this monster of a Romance Novel. At first I wan'st sure what i was getting myself into. But with a Dark and brooding Irishman for the lead, I found myself unable to tear myself away from this one for very long.

          Juliette is a girl in some serious trouble, two dead parents and a debt left by a gambling father to a not very nice Loan shark. She works three thankless jobs, all to barely pay part of her bills and keep he little sister in school. The tale starts with Arlo ( the loan shark) roughing her up and telling her that if he doesn't get his money he's taking her sister. Unless she want s to work it off herself. If she catches his drift. 

           Yeah he's a scumbag, but not the bad guy of the tale, not completely. You got to get deeper to find that bastard. Arlo gives her the ultimatum that sends her in to a tizzy trying to come up with a large chunk of cash fast. It doesn't happen. She finds that her body is her last resort. Of course she's never actually had a man, so terrified but desperate she goes to see Arlo. Willing to do whatever she must to save her sister. Arlo isn't kind about it, as he's thinking of ways to make it more humiliating in walks Killian McClary a man who sees her right away, but she isn't his business. He's there for other reasons.  He would have left her except Arlo gets it in his head that giving her to Killian would be a good idea. 

              He tries to refuse, but one look into her big eyes and something in him snaps and he finds himself escorting her out and to his car. From there it's all kinds of crazy. He insults her, by implying she was a working girl. Takes a sexual history list, of which she lies. Then processed to turn up the heat level right in the limo. The foreplay gets smokin hot really fast, but before it goes too far they are at his place. It's all a roller coaster ride from there...
   
                The backdrops are beautiful, botanical gardens, rooftop dinners, hell even lazer tag fills  the pages, there are emotionally gut wrenching scenes. As well as scenes that take your breath and get the blood really pumping. Overall a really awesome read. I urge you to pick it up even if Romance isn't your thing. there's enough going on in both their lives outside the bedroom to keep anyone's interest. Trust me.
