Vaughn Spencer.
They call him an angry god.
To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.
His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.
All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.
Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.
I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.
But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.
A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.
They say this place is haunted, and it is.
Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.
Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

“That’s when I realized I might be a good girl, but Vaughn had underestimated himself three years ago. He wasn’t a boy at all. He was a deity.”

 

Review:

I knew Vaughn was going to be a bull dozer on my emotions. There was so much going on there that we had yet to dive into before this book. I love how this series is a continuation from each book, and yet they are each their own book. This one over laps some with Broken Knight, I love that she did that. There is also another little treat in this book, I wasn’t expecting it, but it was so great to see.

“You’re real. Maybe that’s why, sometimes, even when you’re not around, it feels like you are.”

There was something really amazing about Lenora the minute we met her. She is probably thee only one who could even come close to being right for Vaughn. I love their connection, their love-hate relationship, the way they understand each other, and the chemistry that just leaps off the pages.

“Haven’t you learned anything? You can change your lock, your zip code, your hair, wardrobe, your entire fucking life, and I’ll still always find you. Touch your shit. Stake my claim.”

Vaughn is someone you either love or you hate. I don’t think there really is a middle ground for him. He made this book so intense, angsty, and a bit brutal. Some of this book isn’t for the faint of heart, and you need to be ready for it. He’s Vicious’s son, and he is every bit his father and more. I loved every minute of him.

“You’re real. Maybe that’s why, sometimes, even when you’re not around, it feels like you are.”

There is so much I want to say, so much I want to gush about, I’m dying here really. If you haven’t read this books, I’m imploring you to do it now.

 

“The name, Angry God, derives from “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” a sermon written by the Christian theologian Jonathan Edwards and preached to his congregation in Northampton, Massachusetts in 1741. It is said that Edwards was interrupted many times during the sermon by people asking, “What shall I do to be saved?” What will you do to be saved? Would you go so far as losing the love of your life?”
