“Our skin is clothing enough to cover what we hide inside.”"
As promised this book was dark, very dark. Rowan is a killer for hire. Lauri is the daughter of a killer for hire. Darkness and murder runs through their veins. Can a person who carries around so much pain and death in their soul find any light and love or accept that they may deserve it?I enjoyed how this story developed between Lauri and Rowan. Their journey of accepting each other with all of their deep scars, inside and out, was engaging to read. I was absorbed into their world of contradictions, pain and pleasure, torture and healing, death and rebirth. Looking forward to the next in this series.
