SynopsisI don’t know what I was thinking when I hired someone to attack me. Maybe I was bored, or lonely, or there was a void so deep inside of me that I needed something explosive to fill it. It was supposed to be safe. A thrill. A way to break through the monotony of everyday life. It was an illusion of danger that I could walk away from as soon as it was over. Except that it wasn’t. Because I had been in danger long before I ever invited it into my life. ——————— My mission is almost complete. The bubbling boil of vengeance that heats my blood might finally simmer. She is the last piece of the puzzle. Once I destroy her, everyone who ever hurt me will have paid their debt. It was supposed to be quick and easy, but as soon as I met her it got complicated. Very complicated.

ExcerptI spin again to face him, and I hike my dress up just under my ass, while straddling one of his legs. His eyes are affixed on mine, like we are only two people in this crowded club. I ride his thigh, rubbing my bare pussy against him, as I lick my lips and run a hand through my hair. My chest presses against the firmness of his torso, my nipples stiffening from the contact. “Please, dance with me,” I beg in a mewl. His hand threads through my hair, the other grabs my ass and pulls me up and against his thigh, applying more pressure against him. Brick by brick. And we move in sync: slow, rhythmic grinding. Eye to eye. Lids barely parted. Sweat beading. Low moans vanish into the air. The deafening music drowns out any conflicted feelings that remain. He tugs my hair and extends my neck, grazing his teeth against my chin, the tip of his tongue awakening the sensitive nerve endings. His hand squeezes my half-exposed ass, and everything lights up. My nipples and clit, a partnership of arousal, tense in ecstasy as they stroke against the man who sets me on fire. He is also the only person who can put me out. My moans grow louder, but they are drowned out in the safety of the music. And like the flashing lights in the club, I become ablaze with flickering energy, throwing my head back, arching my spine as he supports me, as he lets me use his body, his smell, his taste, his overpowering masculine energy to put out the blaze that he ignites inside of me. I collapse onto him, grasping his shirt, taking in his smell, the warmth of his broad chest, completely lost in the sensory experience that is Tax. I smile as I burrow my face into his chest, drunk off the mixture of alcohol and lust.
Let me start by saying, I FLOVE everything Nina has ever written. And when she said she was going to write a story darker than Strapped I was like a kid at Christmas. Taylor holds a special place in my heart so I was anxious to see what she would do next.
This story stands out for me. It took my favorite sub genre and put such a different twist on it. The one thing that I absolutely love about Nina's characters is that the female lead isn't a weak damsel in distress. Mia is independent and driven but not harsh. Tax is an enigma. The inner struggle that he is fighting is evident throughout the book. There were times that I hated that man, but then somehow, ended up falling for him all over again.
I do not want to give away anything about the plot, you need to read it for yourself. Just be prepared for one hell of ride. You will get sucked in immediately. Nina has a way of taking a seemingly perfect female lead, pairing her up with a seemingly beyond messed up male lead, and making them fit so perfect you hate to ever see them apart. Even if he does want to kill her. The ending gutted me. I was in tears. It was the perfect conclusion to Tax and Mia and I couldn't see it ending any other way. I only wish there were more.
