What do you do when the man who raped you has the entire police force in his pocket? When you’re called a slut, a whore, and a liar? You get your own justice.
My name is Nami DeGrace, and six months ago I was a normal college student. I was volunteering on the campaign of a man I believed in, a man I thought to be good and noble. Then one night that man forced himself on me and everything changed.
The media reviled me. The police didn’t believe me. My friends abandoned me. I dropped out of college and only have one mission in life: make him pay. That is, until Nick Law came in to my life.
Indomitable, infuriating, and irresistible, Law is complicating things.
Law gripped the back of my neck and pulled me into him. It wasn’t a kiss—it was a merging. I didn’t just taste the power, I felt the cutting intensity throughout my body. I responded instantly, wrapping my arms around his neck and moaning into his mouth. Law stopped and undid my hands from his neck. I opened my eyes, confused.
“Can’t have you waking everyone up,” Law said, grinning. “Be good and you’ll be rewarded.” I wanted to rebel at that. I nearly slapped him across the face. Yet deep inside, his words made me glow. I dropped my arms to my sides and waited for instructions.
Law traced a finger from my cheek down to my collarbone and carefully brushed aside my cotton shirt. I shivered as my shoulder became exposed. Bending down, he placed a light kiss on the tip of my shoulder. I bit my lip to keep from whimpering.
“Good girl,” Law murmured against my skin. It took all my willpower not to grip Law by his powerful shoulders. I didn’t want him to stop, though, so that meant playing by his rules. I kept my hands next to my sides because that meant Law would continue kissing me.
Law placed a hand on my stomach and I gasped.
“Shh…” Using his other thumb, Law tugged my bottom lip. “You have a beautiful mouth, Dandelion. Don’t let it get us in trouble.” I was speechless, or at least I thought I was. My thoughts got jumbled up with his hands on my mouth and my stomach.
Then he did something amazing.
Something reckless.
He slid his hand from my stomach and beneath my jeans.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given this ARC for my honest review. I will start by saying this was my first time reading this author and I was pleasantly surprised. It was full of angst and mystery, two of my favorite thing. I was hooked from the start losing sleep just to see how it all ends.

The story starts out with a horrible event in Nami’s life where she is assaulted by a senator with the power to make his crime disappear but Nami refuses to give up even when the police don't believe her even after she has lost all her friends and the media blast her at ever corner. Nami is hell bent on getting her revenge against the man that took everything from her. Nami feels she is fighting this battle alone until Law pushes his way into her life with or without her consent.

Law is a mystery that Nami tries to figure out. She doesn't trust him or anyone else for that matter. She pushes him away but Law refuses to give up on her constantly trying to prove to her he's on her side. At every turn something happens to make her lose his trust. When a major event happens Nami wonders if Law is working for the enemy and almost gives up her revenge. Almost. Will she finally get her revenge or will love make her give it all up.

I really enjoyed this book it was well written and the story flowed well. Lots of suspense but low in the sexy department. I will for sure be check out other books from this author.
