This is not a story about a hero, or some bad boy-badass-antihero.
This is a love story between two monstrous villains and one valiant kid, held together by their entwined heartstrings.
It won’t be pretty.
It won’t be pleasant.
There’s no fluffy good feelings about it.
It will rip out your heart and never give it back.
Breno Hades el Oscuro took no bullshit from anyone. He ruled the crime world of the United States. When the King fell, what was left in the ashes was not the small boy that grew up without his father, not the same kid that chose a life of crime at seventeen, nor was it the King who had killed and clawed through a river of blood to stand at the top.
The King was dragged from his throne of bones into a deep dark pit, leaving only the raw flesh of a savage monster to crawl out of Hell.
One that knew love, but didn’t want it again.
Kemono Orochi was destined to inherit the legacy of his father, known as The Dragon’s Tongue. It was an inheritance he never wanted it, never desiring the power that came with the title of Dragon. Kemono ended it all by tearing off the Dragon’s head, watching the serpent’s remains be consumed in hellfire. Now tormented by the scars of his past inflicted by his father, he is struggling to come to terms with the Akuma he has become.
One that wants to devour everyone in his path to protect the only one that matters to him.
The only person that had ever made his icy heart beat.
His heart. His love. His beautiful pride.
Rex Hunter dreams of becoming a principal ballerino…all fierce, like a Phoenix. But this Phoenix has lost his wings and fallen prey, straight into the clutched claws and callus hands of two vicious beasts. Each bore the blackest of hearts, each desiring to keep him safe, cherished and loved unconditionally. Or was Rex just destined to be the goo that would stick two shattered souls together and prevent them from forever falling to pieces?
There will be blood, gore and nasty shit.
There will be watersports, crude, angry, sometimes sensual and other times just downright dirty and dysfunctional sex.
There will always be LOVE…
Because even villains understand the tortured scars love leaves in its wake.
Most would read this book and not like it because let’s be honest the main character Hades is not the nicest person but that does not mean he cannot have a good heart buried under all the hate and anger he has.
Hades is brash, crass, and does not take anything off of anyone. He believes in revenge and does not try to hide that fact. He is the Prez of his club and he believes in paying those who wronged he ones he loves. So what happens when he meets the old Prez hag was murdered son, Rex?
Rex is such an amazing individual whose Out look on life is so positive. He knows that bad things happen. He knows that there are bad people out there . He knows life is far from perfect. But he does not let that alter his bright disposition.
When Rex meets Hades part is scared and part is intrigued. The more they get to know one another the more he realizes that Hades is not everything he appears to be. Rex realizes that there is a good person in that hard exterior of a man that if he lets you in and cares about you then he would do anything within his power to protect you.
Hades thought love was not in his future but is slowly realizing that maybe, just maybe he can have what he thinks about as far as someone to love, come home too, and build a life with in Rex.
Can two unlikely men get exactly what both want in the other or will outside forces rip them apart before they can even find out where things could possibly go with each other?
This is what I would call a dark read with a major cliffhanger. In being honest I really enjoyed this read and I think others will also if they give the book a chance. I look forward to reading the next book in this series as soon as possible.
