Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.
I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I’m thinking before I even do.
It’s alarming and alluring. It’s dark and deadly. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted but the last thing I truly need. Obsession.
It doesn’t take him long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it’s too late. He has secrets, secrets I can’t fathom, secrets that make it so I can’t walk away, no matter how much I beg him to let me go. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that’s both terrifying and thrilling. He’s a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.
I want to hate him.
Sometimes, I do.
But it doesn’t stop me from loving him, too.
I can hardly believe it myself but I actually loved Monster In His Eyes (book #1). What a fun and adventurous, dark and addicting read! Such a mind blower and panty dropping story.
With this author being new to me I had absolutely no idea what to expect ( except for reading the book description, D´uh.) So, I began and I couldn´t put this book down, even if my life depended on it. And now…I don´t feel any guilt what so ever because this story was worth every minute of my time.
Fabulous storytelling. The pace, the settings, the characters….all were far more than I expected.
There´s no beating around the bush with this one. I loved it.
A 100% non-predictable story. I swear…I thought I had the story all figured out after each chapter only to discover I was so far off * gg *. No. Actually, this story was in a way predictable. I knew something awful was bound to happen but I didn´t know when and how or what was going to happen. That was the worst part of it all. That…and the cliffhanger * head against wall*
Karissa Reed is an 18 year old college student. She lives off Ramen soup,( I personally LOVE ramen soup ) and struggles with one of her classes.
One fine day, she forgets something in the classroom and is confronted with a guy who´s drop dead gorgeous. But not just any guy. No. He´s mysterious to the core and he was going to change Karissa´s life forever.
Naz ( Ignazio) Vitale is a man who has it. Period. The attitude, the sex appeal, the language ( especially the body language….* sheesh*) He was frightening as hell with an attitude to compliment his appearance. So, I knew he wasn´t THAT squeaky clean on the inside as he seemed on the outside. He is death on two legs!
Anyways- Naz and Karissa come closer and end up in something like a relationship which consisted of Naz adoring Karissa to the bone and Karissa just wanting to be with Naz ( isn´t that just beautiful? * depressing sigh*) I began to get suspicious when I kept reading about how good/loving/caring Naz was. No guy has it all no matter how much he princesses a girl, right? Yes, right. I was right * proud shoulder pat* All is good with the main characters until shit hits the fan.
Dear Lord….I wasn´t prepared for this story at all. I kept waiting and waiting for something to happen. Something that would put me at ease or make me stop chewing my hair. The suspence was brutal! WHO THE HELL WAS NAZ and what was he going to do?
NOTE: the sex in this book isn´t over-the-top/out-of-this-earth, but it´s still good enough to need some cooling afterwards ( just giving you all a heads up). Decent sex…just decent sex. Ok. Telling myself the sex in this book was decent won´t make it decent. It was far from decent. It was sexy. DUDE! Find me a Naz!
This book will shock a reader in the best way ever!
Warning: Book-hangover will happen.
Double Warning: Nasty cliffhanger ( I absolutely hate cliffhangers)
Told from the Heroine´s POV.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants something dark, mysterious and angsty!
The Cover- 3 stars ( Yeah, it´s okay. Nothing fancy but still okay.)
The Story – 5 stars ( Heavens, this book is worthy of a re-read and a re-re-read )
The Characters – 5 stars ( Way cool. 100% loveable )
My emotional state after finishing this read: Spent. Drained. Exhausted… but I want more!
I´m giving `Monster In His Eyes` ( Monster In His Eyes #1 ), by J.M. Darhower 5 out of 5 stars
