“Andrius told me there’s no going back to normal for me now. That once you’ve been part of something like what happened, you don’t ever go back to being the same.” I tell Konstantin my deepest fear, which is that I'll be tainted by this forever, unable to move forward.

“No, you don’t. You can be normal again, though. You can go back to your life. To your dance classes with your neighbor, and helping your grandparents, and being generally kind and good. You had that walk on the wild side you craved, and you didn’t enjoy it. Lesson learned.”

It’s not a lesson learned, though, because I can’t stop craving him. He’s my walk on the wild side, and I don’t want it to end. I tried to tell myself I did. Tried to convince myself I was done with him, but he pulls me back in each time. Having him so close to me, holding me, is pure torture.

I once thought he couldn’t be my shelter because he was the storm. Now I wonder if he’s really the jagged rocks guarding the bay. I’m in the bay, right in the eye of the storm, and it’s not me he’ll smash to bits, but anyone who gets close or dares to harm me.

I turn in the water until I’m facing him and study his face. He’s not classically handsome. His features are too hard, his body too big, his face too arrogant. He’s beautiful to me, though. Truly, breathtakingly beautiful. From the first moment I saw him, he stopped the clocks for me, and they haven’t started since.

Reaching up, I trace the outline of his jaw with one wet finger. He doesn’t move, but something subtle changes in him; he goes on alert. Like the predator he is, he watches me, eerily still, waiting, seeing if I’ll go ahead and offer myself up to him.

I do.


I really enjoyed this second piece of Konstantin and Cassie's story. It was a roller-coaster ride, for sure, full of action, and plotting, and of course heat between our two main characters. 

Konstantin still is unsure what to do with his ray of sunshine, but he does need to figure it out. He is cold and hard and in the middle of something he didn't expect. While his close friends have his back, there is only one thing he can think of and that is Cassie.

I feel like Cassie thickened her skin and certainly felt more prepared in the continuation of her crazy life. She too has a choice to make, knowing what Konstantin is, can she see herself with someone like that. She really is a ray of sun, she is also feisty and doesn't lay down for anyone. Well except Konstantin. 

Just like part one, part two packed a punch. There were a lot of things going on. A lot of players in the mix. Moves being made, stories I realized I need to go back and read, and a set up for another story to come. I really liked the way all the characters worked together. They all have their strengths. Andrius with deadly aim, Damon with his computer skills, Vasily and Bodhan who are Kon's seconds, all moving in harmony to get things done and eliminate the threat. I enjoyed this story very much, it was just hot enough, entertaining, and heart-pounding.

Author Bio

Hi guys. I’m Skye, a paranormal and contemporary romance author from rainy Northern England. I write Paranormal romance as Skye Jones, and steamy dark romance as S.R. Jones.
The one thing my books in both genres have in common are gritty themes, and alpha heroes who are damaged but oh-so-redeemable!
When I’m not writing, I’m either walking my dogs, drinking coffee, or watching my fave TV shows such as The Sopranos, McMafia, and Little House on the Prairie, yep I have eclectic taste!
