From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a deliciously dark and mind-bending erotic thriller series.
I was born into this world unwanted.
I spent the first hours of my life unloved.
I spent the first eighteen years of my life with the parents who tried to shelter me from the harsh reality of my existence.
But you can’t un-write a sad story if the ending is literally written all over your face.
So I moved out and now I hide. I have a night job that pays the bills. Every night, I put on my mask and walk to work.
Then one night, I hear and see something that will change my purpose in life... forever: a murder that will bring him to me.
He says he wants to protect me. And, through a series of events I can’t fully make sense of, I find myself believing him.
But our nightly visits are always cloaked in darkness. I don’t know his face and he will never know mine.
I was born into this world unwanted. I will leave this world unmasked.
**WARNING: This series is not intended for readers under the age of eighteen due to dark and erotic content.**
Volume 1 ended with Alex killing Daimon. Alex questioned the fact that Daimon was dead. Alex hoped he wasn't because she loves him and feared that he wasn't because he would kill her. She felt remorse for the fact that Daimon could have been telling the truth about her parents and for the fact that he could have really been in love with her as well.
Alex feels as if she is being watched which makes her wonder if Daimon is alive and watching her or if she is just losing her mind and paranoid.
Alex escapes to an island (I believe in Spain or Mexico, not sure which continent they are on) where she meets Nick. Alex is now going by the name Alyssa and she is very skeptical of Nick. She tries to find out more information on the gorgeous neighbor but it ends with her getting no information and her finding more trouble for herself to have to get out of.
I find myself wondering what Nick "really does" for a living. We find out that there is more information on Nick that Alex needs to know. Nick comes clean with Alex about the fact that he knows her name is not Alyssa and he knows about her birth parents. Her father wants her to meet with him. Alex is suspicious but agrees to go so she can kill both of her ROYAL parents. At least that is her plan.
She is still trying to figure out why she SMELLS Daimon all the time and who this mysterious Hoodie wearing black man is that she keeps seeing passing her house. She knows it is not a good sign and will have to flee soon. She also founds out some exciting and disturbing news from the doctors office.
Here are questions going into Volume 3:
- Why is a girl that has been trained by a Black Ops father so easy to find after taking a new identity, especially since she lived OFF the GRID in the first place?
- If Daimon loves Alex what is his plan to save her from the princess killing her and collecting the money?
- Where exactly does this Crow guy fit into the scenario?
- Will her father love Alex the way he should have all along?
- Did her father know that she was alive the whole time?
- Why does her own mother want her dead?
- Will Alex forgive Daimon and be happy that he is alive?
- Will Alex be able to trust Daimon?
- What will Alex tell Nick and how will Alex feel once she knows that Nick lied to her?
