Kidnapping the brother of a mob boss was madness. If only it had stayed that simple.
It had all gone wrong. Sent as a mercenary to kidnap Kirith Martinelli from his tropical island home, Landon finds himself on the wrong end of a job gone bad. But there's more to Kirith than meets the eye--he's the brother of feared mob boss Enzo Martinelli, and he has taken Landon as his captive. Kirith makes Landon an offer he can't refuse: stay with him for three months--until he tires of Landon's body--and then Landon may go free.
Landon, fearing his own criminal family more than the man before him, quickly agrees. Three months will buy him enough time for his brothers to lose his scent, and then freedom will be his. But that freedom has a steeper price than Landon bargained for as he is drawn into the secrets of Kirith's past. He can't ignore the sadness and loss behind his captor's beautiful eyes, and Landon finds himself wondering if three months will be enough--for either of them...
This is a "good rape" romance. I thought at first that the author wasn't going to go there, especially given that the dedication actually indicates that the rapist was patterned after someone she likes, but then "good rape" is always patterned on the belief that rape isn't rape if the rapist does it right. Sex without consent is always rape, turning it into something pleasurable or romantic is awful. These "good rape" romances just serve to bolster the idea that consent isn't really that important, because a rapist can make his/her victim enjoy the experience. Landon is raped in chapter 2, and the author made it a positive sexual experience for him. That is just wrong.read more
