His innocence was the fire that blighted the deepest dark, but even he can’t save the King from a past stained so black, the devil won’t even touch it.
Years creep up on you, like a rotting hand: cold and wet, it will drag you down into your grave.
Life will hand you eternity only to rip it away from you.
Love will slaughter you in the most beautiful way and still manage to nail you in the ass, bareback, when you see him choose the heart of another man.
But Death… He is a patient soul. He waits, and he waits, and he waits.
‘Cause the bastard knows he will always have the last laugh when he knocks at the door.
Memories were all I had, all I had clung to as my heart turned to stone and finally to dust.
Now he is mine and I will hold him, and I will kiss him. We will dance and we will laugh, and we will cry… We will be human together…
I did not know heaven until I knew him.
There is no greater power that can tear and rip your world apart as when their lips finally kiss yours again.
But being human comes at a fatal price.
Sometimes you have to let go of the hand you hold onto so tightly that it brought pain, because that is the only way you can save them from Death.
Why did she take them away, hand them back, then force me to choose?
Is love really that cruel, that she would enjoy tormenting you as you watch the two men you love with your whole heart, kill each other…?
And then, my worst fear, my deepest darkest nightmare became a living breathing thing.
Death had come to take from us what we could never replace.
I just thought book two in this series was going to blow me away and then I read book three and I found that so many different emotions where brought out in me. I will be honest I was not expecting a dark read to break my heart in any way but then here comes book three and Wulf proved that what I did not think was capable of happening was made possible in a major way.
Wulf has got to be a master at the twist and turns he puts in his books because there are so many unexpected twists that I was blown away by this read in more ways then one.
Hades and Rex are back in a huge way. But along with these two men is another. A huge part of Rex’s past and an even bigger part of Hades present. Komainu is the first man that Rex fell for at a very young age but Rex did not believe it to reciprocated.
Boy was he wrong. Komainu was just as much in love with Rex as Rex was with him but Komainu knew what that love would do if his father was able to use Rex for his own purposes. So Komainu did what he had to do in order to protect Rex.
Now that Komainu is grown and his own man, nothing will stop him from finding Rex. Or so he thinks anyway. The problem is Rex does not want to be found and not even Hades knows where Rex is.
Two unlikely individuals team up to find the man they both love and pray that he is safe. Along the way Hades and Komainu fight with each other and with others in order to try and find the man they both feel so much for. But also along the way something changes between these two men.
What will happen to all three of these men when they find Rex again? Will someone be left in the cold or can these three come up with an arrangement that they can all live with?
This book has some major twist and turns that left me feeling emotionally wrung out but also blown away at the twists. This is definitely a book you will have to read in order to get the full affect of what happens. I will be honest when I say it left me in tears.
I really hope there will be more of these men in future books because I am just not through with them yet.
