HEA?: Not Even Close!

Fervent is the third book in the Condemned series.

I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us show no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.

Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.

What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe. I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me.

He’ll even die for me.

NOTE TO READERS: FERVENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part three of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read! Please begin with TORRENT and RAMPANT, otherwise, FERVENT might not make much sense.

4.5 “Fervent” Stars!
Dark, Twisted, Intense and Totally Messed Up! And... FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! 

The Review: 
I knew before going in, this book was going to consume me. It was going to take me down a dark, inescapable path that would totally leave me mind-fucked. I wasn’t wrong. It was just as disturbing as I thought it would be... and I loved every minute of it!

This book picks up right where the one before it left off as the author takes us into a sinister, scary world of people trying to survive horrific circumstances at the frightening hands of others. Rafe and Alex have been taken. Bound and drugged, they’ve been shoved into the back of a vehicle to be taken to a destination unknown. Rafe is still missing vital parts of his memory and Alex is still running from a painful life she can’t seem to escape.

When they arrive to their destination, it’s worse than anything Rafe could have imagined and the people who have taken them are using Alex against him... including the one ally he thought he had in all this. With his memory missing, he can’t recall the events he’s being charged with but time is running out for both of them and when the unthinkable happens, their world shifts violently.

In the beginning, Alex pulled Rafe into her uncontrollable life, setting in motion a chain of events that are now rebounding, coming full circle. Her inaction's have landed her where she is, in the clutches of men with no conscience, all in an attempt at retribution from Rafe for something he can’t even remember.

The things these two have to endure, the humiliation, the pain, the suffering, it broke my heart. Rafe and Alex love each other and outside forces are always keeping them from being happy.

I love how the author isn’t afraid to put her characters in appalling situations or afraid to cause them pain, all the while giving them the strength and fortitude to overcome instead of crumble. Rafe and Alex’s love for one another, their heroic strength and their determination kept them going... but that ending? Wow! Totally left my heart pounding and completely speechless. 

The Wrap Up: 
I can’t wait to see what happens next. Just when I think things can’t get any worse for these to, the unbelievable happens, the roller coaster twists and turns and everything is upside down! So I know the next installment of their journey is going to be just as intense but also just as amazing!
