As the son of an Irish mobster, Connor O’Neil spent his boyhood hiding from the horrors of his own home. His one reprieve was a girl he knew only as Evelyn, but even she was taken away. As a man, Connor is determined to stay away from his father’s business. With Sean, participation is not a request, but a demand. The truth is, Connor might be more like the evil he’s trying to hide away from than he would like to admit.
And he’s already spent years trying to cover the scars left over from the pain.
A chance encounter puts the lost girl from his past back on his path, and he no longer has a choice but to face the darkness he’s been ignoring for years.
Evelyn. Sasha. Slave.
She doesn’t really know who she is anymore.
Or maybe she does, and she doesn’t want to tell.
She isn’t the same as she once was—now a thing to be kept and maintained, shuffled from owner to owner until it was her time to go. She only became Connor’s because he took her when he knew she wasn’t his to take.
Except she isn’t Connor’s at all …
And he can’t keep her hidden forever.
~Inflict is a Standalone Romance with graphic depictions of violence, sexual scenes, dark elements and a HEA. It is not recommended for those under the age of 18.
Review by Susan:
This book tells Connors story, it starts when he’s a child and follows through to adulthood. We get to see why he turned into the man he is today and how traumatic events shaped him. We get a brief look at how he met Evelyn and how their friendship began, it does cover some issues that were hard to read at times but are relevant to the story. Although Connor is rough, ready and has some serious issues, I really liked him. He showed a gentleness to Evelyn that I didn’t think he had in him, she sees a side of him he keeps well hidden. Evelyn is a complex character, at times I did struggle to connect with her but again as the book goes on we see more of her a character emerge. For fans of This author, this is a must read. Another great read from this author. 5 Stars!
