Once upon a time, girl met boy and a love story began.
Their future was assured until tragedy struck and deceptions were made.
There are consequences to every action, and the Consequences of Deception are always the most punishing.
Sloane Evans lost nearly everyone that she’s ever loved, but losing Killian Brandt left a scar that never healed.
Four and a half years after turning his back on her, Killian steps back into Sloane’s life in the most shocking of ways, giving her no choice but to abandon her life and go with him.
Why would a man buy a woman that he hates?
Not everything is as it appears.
Love is beautiful, revenge is ugly, and lies destroy lives.
A horrifying suspicion takes root in my head and a wave of dizziness sweeps through me as I realize that there is only one possible reason that he is here. The only explanation that makes sense is that he wants to be the one to throw me out into the street. Somehow he’s in control of Stephen and Celine’s house, and I just bet he’d done whatever he had to do to get himself into this position. Four and half years he’d been waiting for a shot at me, and now he has it.
“You’re… throwing me out?” I try, damn hard, to keep from breaking down. The tears I keep at bay, but there is a definite warbling of my voice as I ask the question.
Immediately I am angry with myself for showing such weakness and I decide to take the bull by the horns. I am not about to give Killian Brandt, of all people, the pleasure of seeing me break, even though I have to admit to myself that I am definitely breaking. I plow on before he can answer my ridiculous question.
“What am I saying? Of course you’re throwing me out! I’m sure this has to be one of the best moments of your miserable life, you selfish son-of-a-bitch. You want me out? Consider me gone!”
I jump to my feet to go call Demi, only to come to a dead halt when Killian thunders out a command. “Sit your ass down,now.”
I am so shocked by the force behind his words that I immediately drop back onto the couch. I don’t actually fear Killian, but my response to his tone of voice is instantaneous.
For one moment, I allow myself to hope that maybe Killian isn’t here to ruin my life. Maybe, just maybe, he isn’t as bad as I think he was.
“I’m not kicking you out, Sloane. I’m buying you.”
Whatever I thought before? It was all too generous. Killian just turned my life upside down with nine life-changing words.
It hangs out there between us as I gape at him while I try to formulate a response. “Buying me…? This proves that you’re insane! I’m not a commodity. What exactly can I do for you, Killian? Be your maid?”
The look he gives me is a lot like a warning and instinctively I know that whatever he says next isn’t going to be good.
“No, you’re going to be my lover.”
This is the story of Sloane and Killian… And holy crap is this guy screwed up! To be honest with you when I first started reading this book I was slightly confused. Sloane has known Killian since she was a child living next door to him. They had an almost unbreakable bond and chemistry that couldn’t be denied. Killian always wanted Sloane, but he made a vow to not have her until she turned 18. Then everything and I mean everything goes to shit.
Fast forward and it’s been four and a half years. Killian now wants revenge and ownership over Sloane, and at this point I really had no clue what was going on. Sloane has been living with her new Guardians after her father passed, and quite frankly they are the most horrible people ever! This poor girl has lost everything and has now had to live with Mr. and Mrs. Devil for the past four years. Killian has been absent as well, and it’s only under Sloane’s assumption that he must hate her. Again, I still had no clue why. But that’s ok, it kept me turning the page for sure.
When Killian does show his face again he is full of rage and resentment towards Sloane. He ends up “buying” her in some manipulative blackmailing plot to get his revenge on her. They have a contract, for one year Sloane is his to do with what he pleases and this includes everything. Basically she reluctantly becomes his sex slave and at this point she doesn’t even know why he hates her so much, she can only assume. And there’s nothing she can do about it, since he’s blackmailing her to stick with the deal.
Killian has his way with Sloane more than one time, and to be honest he was such a dick about it. And Sloane just took it, she honestly had no other choice. I understand that Killian was going through some stuff in his own head, but CRAP to make the assumptions he made, and to believe the stories he believed was truly disgusting behavior. And the fact that one would want to “buy” a girl for revenge fucking honestly really disturbed me. Like who does that? I’m all for dark and mysterious, and I’m even ok with a little name calling and “Dickheadedness” but this whole thing just seemed a little weird to me. I still couldn’t stop reading it though!
Sloane ends up staying with Killian at his condo in Florida, and when these two do get it on, I’m not gonna lie it was HOT. Killian has a filthy-foul mouth, like big time! And you could sense that underneath his rough exterior he cared about Sloane. Whether it be just a little smirk, or glance it was present. Most of the time he was a raging asshole, and eventually we get to find out why. I won’t spoil anything but Fuuuuuuuckk these two are so jacked up! Killian more than Sloane, WAY more. Sloane I felt sorry for, and it truly made me cry the way he treated her sometimes.
When Killian finally pulls his head out of his ass and finds out the truth he actually made me like him a little bit…little bit! And I did enjoy the story, it kept me interested for sure and I definitely wasn’t bored, like at all. I have to give Ella Fox some credit, she thoroughly entertained me, confused me, made me cry, and pissed me off all in one book! I suppose that’s a really good thing ultimately. I’d definitely recommend this book if you want something a little different than the normal read we’re all used to. It had me from beginning to end regardless of how I felt at times!
