I never thought I could love a monster. Then I met Machi.I shouldn’t have been there that night. I shouldn’t have seen that man die–or the face of his killer. Every part of me wanted to run and hide, to escape and forget what I saw.But then he caught me. He stole me and pushed me into his world. He said if I listened to him, he could give me what I wanted. . .My freedom.He forgot to mention that … I wanted. . .
He forgot to mention that freedom comes with a price. I’m going to be auctioned off and there’s nothing I can do to change that.
He wants me to believe that he isn’t the bad guy. But I know better. Except… his hard jaw and full lips are hard to ignore, his voice makes my heart flutter, and his hands—his hands are purely toxic, unfurling my body with one touch.
He’s a monster, and monsters lie. They lurk in the dark and rain hell on your soul.
I never thought that loving one was possible. . .
Until I met him.
* Author’s note: Pushed is a full length, dark romance novel with no cliffhanger. It will leave you with all the right feels when you’re done.
A deliciously dark romance! This is about a young woman trapped in a nightmare. Her curiosity put her in a bad situation. And our hero rescues her by pulling her deeper into the darkness. He can’t tell her his true motives. But she must trust him to survive. I loved this book. And can’t wait to read the next in this series. I did receive an advance copy for my honest review.
Wow what a very intense dark story that wil push you to the limits. This is a very amazing story that will have you reading every word tell the very ending. This isn’t a book for everyone. Dark, steamy, suspenseful and very intense.
If you read dark romances then you know this is the perfect setup for all that comes. This is a dark storyline with an underlying plot that flows quickly and seamlessly. Between the characters and the story, there is no way to read through the book without a reaction of some kind. Whether it’s fear of the circumstances, excitement over the sexual chemistry between Machi and Imperial, the anger over the situation, or even the empathy over the emotions involved. Leah Holt had a gift of drawing out each of these emotions during the telling, making you feel you have shared a journey not only with the author, but with her characters as well. What a great book and the beginning of what can only be a stellar series.
