For twelve long years, I’ve breathed, I’ve bled for only one thing…
Four men took something from me, something which can never be replaced. That one night changed the lives of so many and taught me that monsters are real.
But I also learned I’m the biggest monster of them all.
Nothing and no one will stand in my way of redemption because those men…they’re now three. The fourth—he is the reason they call me Bullseye. They can run, but sooner or later, I’ll find them, just as I did with their friend. They’re already dead…they just don’t know it yet.
My plan was simple until I met her. A fierce tiger who had the power to break my heart. Lucky for me…she can’t break what’s already broken. I am no longer a man because the world is a jungle, and we’re all just animals—ready to tear one another apart.
“This is me. A cold-hearted bastard. A depraved animal. My story doesn’t end with Prince Charming saving the princess and living happily ever after with her because…I killed the fucking prince.”
I love a good dark romance story. I love diving into a story that makes me feel like I’m having to sit on the edge of my seat while reading. Some of this was raw, and gritty, with a lot of darkness.
I liked the idea of this story, and I liked Bull, but there was just something about him and Tiger that did not click with me. I never got invested in these two as a match. Besides this though, there was just several “canned” response, phrases, etc that made this a bit rough to read.
I like Monica, her stories, and her writing, but this one is just so so for me. I’m going to check out the second one to see if it improves for me.
