I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The messed up part about this story is that I still want him, even now.
Now that he’s holding me captive on an island.
Rafe has his reasons for doing what he’s doing, and if I’m honest, I can’t blame him—I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn’t commit.
But now he’s free and the tables have turned…now he’s the one driven by obsession.
This is the first book in the Condemned Series and it is a GREAT start!!!! This book is dark, twisted, intense, keeps you on the edge of your seat and when you are done you are left with, OMG what just happened…
This is not your everyday love story; it has some very twisted events that make for a book that draws you in. This book has some very dark events that are not for everyone.
Alex De Luca did not have your average childhood. When her mom married Abbott De Luca her whole life changed. She went from being the quiet girl no one noticed to become Miss Popularity for 2 reasons, one being the adopted daughter to Abbot De Luca, who had an impressive record in the UFC and second for being the sister of Zachariah De Luca, the rising star. To make her even more popular if that was possible was having a connection to Rafe Mason who was bound for the UFC.
Rafe Mason had it all, or so he thought, he was on his way to being in the UFC. He could see his potential for a bright future. But then it was all pulled out from underneath him from just one lie. Everything Rafe had hoped and dreamed about was gone in an instant and he lost eight years of his life for that lie.
Alex is trying to get away from the life of torment that she has led, but in the process manages to get kidnapped and tortured from someone that she loves. Rafe just wants to get revenge for what he has lost, to make the person who caused it pay, but he didn’t know what he was in for. After all these years he learns that he was missing key parts to the story that had become his life, but is it too late for him to make it right. Is the right person going to finally pay for all Rafe’s years of loss and suffering?
This book has a major cliffhanger, which I knew was coming but I had no idea until it hit. Gemma James has a definite hit with this book and I can’t wait to see what will be in store next for Rafe, Alex and Zach….
