Ella

Since I was a little girl, I have been surrounded by hate, death, murder, and slavery. I’ve been guarded my whole life by my brother—Raze, the kingpin of the underworld and the most feared individual in the United States of America. And then further more guarded when I found out the president of The Devil’s Own MC was my long lost half-brother. Being tossed around from one extreme protection to another has left a part of me yearning to break out of it's cage. The part that I've tried to sugar coat and hide, because if she's unleashed, everyone would see just how much like my brothers I am.

Panting, wanting, needing to unleash the side of me I’ve always known was there.

My secret is mine and my brothers.

Only they know what I hide and why I hide it. How I fight for love because if I don't, my rage would win and I’d be a mere shadow of the girl people have grown to know.

But I broke.

And the man who held the hammer that shattered the walls I spent years building to cage in my rage—was a psychopath.

noun

  1. the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects.

Sometimes perfection creates imperfection.

Amo has created these wildly untraditional and imperfect characters and thrown them into a book of psychopaths being psychopaths and falling in love and being psychopathic and it ends up in perfection.  Sum it up?

If you haven't picked up on the vibe yet, this is a little on the darker, more violent, and intense side.  I feel like I just stated the obvious. 

Initially, I was worried I wasn't going to be able to warm up to Frost (haha pun not intended) and Ella.  I mean... unemotional, cold, psychopath, what could I possibly relate to?  But that's a lie.  The book is chock full of emotion, feelings, and ... well... yeah, violence.  Did you know it really is chock full and not chalk full?  And I think psychopaths can feel.

This is a quick moving, fast-paced, dark, intense, violent story with a raging romance going on at the same time.  Amo put it all out the table.  Or in the bowel.  Or in the bowl.  She nailed this one with signature Amo Jones style.

Sometimes imperfection creates perfection.
