Love is supposed to be a fairy tale.
Ours is a death wish.
I'm the executioner for the Bedlam Brotherhood.
She's a con artist working for my greatest enemy.
I use her.
She manipulates me.
We find ourselves on opposite sides of a bloody war.
My heart and head tell me I have to stay away.
My lust for her doesn't give a sh*t.
Nothings fair in love and gang war.

**** 4 Star Review ***
Oh wow! This was my first book of this author's. I admit, I own many. I just haven't read any of them. So when my book club voted for this book as a group read, I picked it up. I can't say that I am disappointed.
I don't know what I was expecting. Everyone has been telling me to read this author. My love for the dark, dirty, and twisted she is an author I should be reading. They weren't wrong. They rarely are wrong. Now I just need to pick up all of those other books I have purchased of hers.
The book. I know, I need to talk about the book. I don't even know where to start or what to say. This book is raw, gritty, dirty, dark. Basically is so romantical, I didn't want to put it down. There is nothing better than dark and twisted to get my blood pumping while reading a book!
These characters are everything. From their beginning to their current, I was wrapped up in their story. The book wasn't enough. I wanted more. I can't wait for more. I need more. How can you not love characters who's lives are so dark and dismal, characters who fight their way to survive, literally?
Am I the only one who pictured SOA characters in my head while reading this book? Some of the characters reminded me of SOA so much. Trust me, that's not a bad thing. Then throw in the old fashioned Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story-ish theme to it. Mix those altogether, throw in some really dark characters, and you have the start to this story!
What will happen in the next two books? I can't wait to find out. I need some more of these characters. I need some more twists. I need this author to leave me left with that WTF did I just read face!
