“I couldn’t stop thinking about him. He was an enigma, his past, a giant question mark. I wanted to hear him confess his crimes. I wanted to hear his side of the story. Why I felt any sympathy for a man like him was beyond me. Yet…there I was, waiting.”
Ryder and Cally’s story is a dark and unconventional one. I loved that Jackie didn’t shy away from diving into Ryder’s traumatic and troubled past. The flashbacks and history she gave us on him really helped me to understand where his need for answers and revenge came from. He’s also the definition of a major alpha, and I loved that she made him a little broken. The broken alphas are my favorites! And Cally was a strong, intelligent, and extremely feisty heroin. A perfect match for Ryder, and someone who never backed down from learning the truth.
“Flames, flames, flames. I was going down in flames for this woman. She was setting me on fire and I didn’t even care. I wanted to burn for her, and she didn’t even know it.”
Villain was a gripping, dark thriller with a perfect enemies-to-lovers story. I couldn’t put this book down! If you’re looking for a rollercoaster read with a hot alpha, then I highly recommend giving this one a try!
I grew up under a grand delusion.
As a child, I pretended that I was a paper princess, hidden in a tower, awaiting my prince. Being with me came at an impossible price though, because I was kept by a wicked witch, someone who called herself my mother. I was a doomed Rapunzel, forgotten by the world.
All my life, I’d been a kept woman.
Kept in the cellar while my mother entertained foul men of all shapes and sizes, sometimes for hours or all night long.
Kept in the closet while my mother sucked her boyfriend’s cock.
Kept in the garage while my mother laundered bloody sheets and soiled blankets. While she scrubbed the walls and took out the trash.
My mother said she was born to serve. A born listener. A follower. Chosen for breeding. Hand-picked for pleasure…
