I’m used to getting my hands dirty. During the day it’s mud and grime on the construction site. At night…it’s the blood I spill. A drug lord’s enforcer does what needs to be done. It’s my obedience, my loyalty to the boss that keeps my family alive.
I know I’m teetering on the edge. I’m losing my humanity, I can feel it. It’s changing me, and it’s only a matter of time before the darkness takes over.
Then I meet her. Liv. The only person who sees past my busted knuckles and brutal exterior. She sees…me. But being with me will get her killed. The only way I can keep her safe is by staying away. Until her own actions catapult her into the center of my world—a world which will swallow her whole.
Now I’m forced to be the ruthless bastard I’ve been for so long. Only this time it’s not to destroy…but to defend.

#2 Kane – Releasing February 26, 2019
This is a dark and gritty story, it´s written in third person and you get both Brick and Liv´s POV. For some reason it took a while for me to get into this story, but when I did I couldn´t put it down.
I absolutely loved Brick – he is not the usual dark, tortured pretty manwh*re character, but rather imperfect, gentle and loyal despite all the torture he´s had to endure and the life he has been forced to live. When he meets Oliva the attraction is instant, for both of them, but with his life the way it is he thinks the only way to keep her safe, is to stay far away from her.
This story was intense, with ups and downs and twists and turns I never saw coming. Some parts were heartbreakingly hard to read, but it was also funny and sweet. And on top of that the secondary characters were very interesting and I found myself wanting to read their story as well. And since this is the first book in a new series, odds are good that I´ll get their stories eventually.
