Transcending Darkness by Airicka Phoenix


Synopsis:

One: Sign the contract. 
Juliette Romero had a debt to pay, a debt that wasn’t even hers. But it was the only way to keep her family safe and all she had to do was sell her body and soul to the devil.
Killian McClary wasn’t called the Scarlet Wolf for nothing. He’d been the head of the McClary Organization since he was fifteen and had built a reputation for being a ruthless son of a bitch when it came to running the city’s underbelly, not to mention merciless when it came to punishing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. Only results. Juliette, with her shy smiles and hot little body was a weakness unlike any other and yet he was powerless to resist one more taste of her sweet flesh.
Two: Become his for a year.
When given the choice between her life or her body, what could Juliette possibly do, but submit to a man whose very name invoked fear in the hearts others? She just never anticipated falling for his dark, hungry eyes and clever hands, or the way the beast in him made her feel oddly safe and cherished.
But what will happen when Killian’s dark past finally catches up to him and threatens the woman he can no longer imagine himself without? What will happen when both sides find themselves caught in a web of passion, lies and broken promises? Can Juliette tame the wolf or will her love for him devour them both?
Three: Don’t fall in love.
Boundaries will be crossed, loyalties will be tested and lives will be changed forever.
My review:
There were moments during this book where I actually messaged Airicka Phoenix to tell her that she's mean and brutal and just about the darkest soul out there. I mean, how in the world can you torture your readers so much? Hurt them? Tear out their hearts? I personally think she's sitting with her hands folded, smiling to herself each and every time someone mentions how much they hurt because of her writing.

And I hurt a lot during this book, because Ms. Phoenix manages to grab me with her characters each and every time she writes a book. It doesn't matter what genre she tries to write, she succeeds with ease, it seems. 
Juliette is a loveable character that you can't help but root for. The troubled relationship with her sister, the need to fight for herself, not take anything for granted, that's what makes her an amazing female lead. She's headstrong, beautiful and perfectly imperfect. 


Killain got me from the moment he entered the picture. You know how that say that in a book you don't fall in love with a character's appearance, but their heart and soul? That's exactly what happened to me and Killian. A troubled soul, a heavy heart ... what more could there be about a man? Mystery, a little danger and a hell of a lot sex appeal, that's what. 


I held my breath throughout most of the book, praying that Ms. Phoenix would make it all right. You wanna know if she did? Guess what, you'll have to buy the book to find out. This lady here gives the book
