Pierced Hearts #5
by Cari Silverwood
Wren, the rich girl with a tainted past, is on a crusade to track down her father’s murderer only to find not one, but two, bad men.
Glass is the dominating ex-SAS soldier. Each man is determined to keep Wren for himself using methods that may be illegal, immoral, or likely to make somebody feel the pain for a long, long time.
If you lie down with bad men, be prepared to get up on your knees.
The ending will be the reader’s decision. Give Wren to the dark or to the light, then read the other ending if you wish to. Mindf**ks included free.
This is a dark erotic story and some readers may find it disturbing.
I leaned in and listened, while resting my palm on her chest then I fumbled at her neck until I found the bump of her carotid artery pulse.
Breathing – good. Pulse – good. Relief poured in.
So odd, to be able to touch her.
I clicked off the light and straightened, still aware of her seductive scent and remembering the soft give of her skin underneath my fingers. My heart thumped heavily.
Not obsessed, hell no. I scoffed at my own naivety.
I worked my arms under her and carried her to my own trunk, crunching stray leaves under my boot and grinding them into the bitumen surface of the road. Then I gently lowered her and tucked her legs up to accommodate the temporary soundproofing. The partition between the trunk and the back seat had plenty of gaps and air would be plentiful. She could breathe. In daytime she might’ve cooked from the sun beating down on the metal. Nighttime was perfect.
There were no human sounds here, in this eucalypt forest north of town, just an owl, some bugs making bug noises, and distant cars grumbling along the highway.
I slammed the trunk shut, walked to the open driver’s side door, and slid into my seat.
Then...I freaked, a little.
What the hell was I doing?
Rules, limitations, boundaries, being sensible according to what my brain said was best – these had formed my compass for surviving for the twenty-five years since I hit teenager times. I lived my rules.
“Holy fuck,” I muttered, thinking of her back there and me here, holding the wheel, staring out at the darkness.
In one day, I’d turned everything upside down.
Another dark yet wonderful story in a fascinating series. Yield is just as sexy yet dark as the previous books and I love that the characters are familiar. Glass, an ex-SAS soldier who doesn't exactly follow the law, is instantly attracted to Wren, who is searching for the man who murdered her father. Glass is not the only one who is fascinated by her, so is Moghul, a sadist with an illegal empire. Wren must choose between these two very bad men, both who attract her in different ways.
As I don't want to spoil this story for readers, my review will be very short. It is well written and kept me eagerly turning the pages. It has many intense dark scenes as well as sexy hot scenes that require a cold drink while reading. This is also the first book where I could pick an ending....I, of course, read both. I do have a favorite and enjoyed that I could decide which man Wren would ultimately end up with.
I do recommend that this series be read in order because as I mentioned earlier, many characters make appearances in each book. A warning: this book and series do have intense and dark themes. ~Booklover Sue
