I was kidnapped on my honeymoon by three masked men. Blindfolded. Bound. Destination unknown.

I was told to stay silent and abide by their rules. But they didn’t realize I wasn’t a victim…not anymore.

The open sea was my backdrop for nine torturous days. During that time, glimmers of my fate were revealed by a man with the mysterious chartreuse-colored eyes. He should have scared me, but he didn’t.

He intrigued me. And I intrigued him.

He punished me when I didn’t listen, which was every single day. But beneath his cruelty, I sensed he was guarding a grave secret.

I was sold. And in a game of poker, no less.

My buyer? A Russian mobster who likes to collect pretty things. Now that I know the truth, I only have one choice.

Sink or swim.

And when one fateful night presents me the opportunity, I take it. I just never anticipated my actions would leave me shipwrecked with my kidnapper.

He needs me alive. I want him dead.

But as days turn into weeks, one thing becomes clear—I should hate him…but I don’t.

My name is Willow. His name is Saint.

Ironic, isn’t it? He bears a name that denotes nothing but holiness yet delivers nothing but hell. However, if this is hell on earth…God, save my soul.

**BAD SAINT is a DARK ROMANCE. It contains mature themes that might make some readers uncomfortable. It features: kidnapping, captivity, strong violence, mild language, and some dark and disturbing scenes. This twisted tale is not intended for the fainthearted. So, if you’re game…welcome to the madness.

Review:

This book is a lot more then I was expecting. There is always a sense of being sucked into a world that consumes you while reading one of Monica’s books. She adds so many layers to her stories that there is always something going on.

“I’m already ruined, so what’s one more scar?” he confesses, surprising me. I wouldn’t refer to the sight before me as ruined. Each scar tells a story, showing the world you were stronger than whatever tried to beat you.”

Saint and Willow had a very intense connection from the very beginning of the book. Their scenes were full of feeling and intensity, it was absolutely electric. I loved them together, and I can’t wait for more.

“I fucked up. I never should have touched her, but I couldn’t help it. She is poison, a toxic combination to my body. I haven’t touched a woman like that for over two years, but it was never like that with anyone else.”

I really enjoyed this book, I’m so glad I read it. There were a few parts that didn’t flow as well as the rest of the book, a few spots with way to much description (to much can be an overkill), but these are just pet peeves of mine. Then there was the fact that she was an “untouched virgin” or “very inexperienced virgin”, I’m just over that already. These things did not hurt the story and – they just bother me. This is a great start to the trilogy and I’m excited to see where it goes from here. If you like to read on the darker side of romance, then I highly recommend checking this one out.
