I married a douchebag.
I didn't know it at the time.
He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.
I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.
Then he left me high and dry.
Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.
He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.
I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.
I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.
With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.
Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.
I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.
He has to pay.
And pay he will.

As a book whore and a reviewer I have read many books where I have hated and loved a male character but never have I been at such a war with myself like I am now with Marcus Tandem. I hate him so much but at the same time I love him and his character. He is an asshole, a bastard for what he has done to Katia, and deserves a swift kick to the balls at the least. At the same time, he is sexy as hell, an alpha male and even though what he did at the beginning was a major asshole move, he sacrificed his happiness, and heart to protect her. I love him despite all of those things I hated about the way he is, I love him because deep down he is a good man who does bad things and I love him because I know we haven’t seen all that Marcus Tandem truly is.
Katia is sweet, trusting and totally in love with Marcus. She is also naive to everything that is behind the reasons for their quick marriage and almost a little stupid for not questioning why Marcus is the way he is to her but at the same time never shows emotions or feelings towards her. But now, now she is pissed off, hurt and out for revenge and I hope that her anger and need for revenge doesn’t cost her happiness later on.
I have said it before and I will say it again, I am a huge Bella Jewel fan and have not yet been disappointed by any of the books she has written. Now this does have a cliff hanger so when you start please don’t get mad that we have to wait until the next book to find out what will happen. It’s worth it trust me, and I hate cliffhangers (just ask my husband because the tantrum I throw rivals my three year old). I cannot wait to find out when she plans on releasing book two because I am desperate for the next book like an addict for their next fix. Make sure you add this to your TBR lists, and if you haven’t read any of Ms. Jewel’s books before, pick one up and see why I love her as much as I do.
