She has a secret.
I’m complicated. Not broken or ruined or running from a past I can’t face. Just complicated.
I thought my life couldn’t get any more tangled in deceit and confusion. But I hadn’t met him. I hadn't realized how far I could fall or what I'd do to get free.
He has a secret.
I’ve never pretended to be good or deserving. I chase who I want, do what I want, act how I want.
I didn’t have time to lust after a woman I had no right to lust after. I told myself to shut up and stay hidden. But then she tried to run. I’d tasted what she could offer me and damned if I would let her go.
One secret destroys them.
With a savage push, I chimed the doorbell and waited.
And fucking waited.
I pressed it again.
Finally scuffling sounded on the other side of the door before it was cracked open. The safety chain stayed across.
I growled, “Where is she, Corkscrew? I need to talk to her.”
Corkscrew gritted his jaw. His dark skin and black eyes looked like the gatekeeper from hell. “She told me not to let her near her.”
Shaking my head, I said, “That isn’t an option. I just want to talk.” Swiping a hand over my face, keeping my temper in check I added, “I need to apologize for before.”—ROAN
Review of Destroyed
4 Stars out of 5
Where to begin with this twisted complicated book. It was mysterious and heartbreaking all in one.
Destroyed grabbed me from the very beginning. Obsidian Fox is a club owner, not just any club, but an underground, illegal fighting world club. He's scarred, tatted and a bit scary. He has such a dark, mysterious past that we don't know what it is--which makes his character really interesting.
He meets Hazel Hunter, a beautiful woman, who is also hiding secrets of her own. Hazel is dealing with a lot of personal issues, but she is fierce and strong. Fox is immediately drawn to Hazel and offers her an opportunity she can't seem to resist. Their first encounter was so intense--I loved it.
But this opportunity is too good to be true...their "relationship" becomes complicated, volatile and challenging. There are so many issues and secrets between the two--it was a constant push and pull. But for some reason, they complemented each other and deep down, also needed one another. So that just left me rooting for them to make it work. I wanted these two to have a HEA (they did get there, eventually!), but it wasn't without facing their demons and having a heartbreaking tragedy hit them.
It's hard not to spoil their secrets, so it's a must read for all to find out. Destroyed is a great read that keeps you on your toes till the very end. And I LOVED the epilogue!
