Persephone Abbot is in my debt.
Exactly the way I want it.
The sins of the father should not be inherited by the daughter. It’s unfair, I know, but since when has life been fair?
The events that brought us here began on Halloween night more than five years ago in that chapel ruin. I saved her that night. Carried her home through the storm that was the omen warning of what would come.
I didn’t know it then, but I do now.
Her father destroyed something precious. Someone innocent.
I don’t believe in an eye for an eye. I won’t just balance the scales of justice, I’ll tip them so far in my favor his legacy will topple.
I’ll take that which is most precious. His daughter.
But I’m not the only monster lurking in the dark corners of her world. She’ll sleep in the bed of the beast, but I’ll keep her safe. Protect her fiercely.
And maybe I'll keep her.
Set in the Benedetti Mafia World, Descent is a standalone romance.
“Hades loved Persephone.
And he’s right.
She loved him, too.
But his love, it condemned her. It could only take. It could only ever make her dark.
She wasn’t the same even in the time she spent in the light.
Because once you let darkness love you, it won’t ever let you go.
And you won’t want it to.”
I love books that incorporate Greek Mythology into them. This one did not closely follow the theme that most books do when they use that as a theme, but this one was a really good book that incorporates it into the story line.
Set in the Benedetti Mafia world, this story has made me interested in read the rest of the series. This book is a spin-off of that series, while it is a stand-alone book, I think it blended really well into that world. A lot of spin-off books don’t go that close to the original story line, I loved that this one did.
“Persephone Abbot belongs to me. She always has. And now, she belongs in my bed, too. And I’ll make sure she stays there no matter what I have to do.”
Descent reminded me while mafia romance is one of my favorite dark romance themes. They are always full of action, passion, and enough angst to keep me happy. There was so many layers to the story in this book, it kept me on the edge of my seat while reading. I devoured the book in one sitting, I just couldn’t put this one down. This is my first book by this author, and I’m excited to go check out her back log of books. I love finding authors like this, it gives me so many books to go binge on when I find them. Even if you don’t end up reading the series this spined-off from, you need to check this one out!
He was my savior once.
Now he’s become my tormentor.
And I don’t ever want him to let me go.”
