SCARLET ANGEL by ST Abby
MY STAR RATING
To kill a monster, you have to be twice as monstrous. To love a monster, you have to share your soul…
Logan Bennett makes me want to have a future not tainted by the constant hunger for revenge. Doesn’t mean I can stop. Doesn’t mean I want to stop. It just means I want more… one day.
But how do you make a good man love the monster inside you without stripping his soul away as well? He is all the best parts of me right now, resurrecting bits of my heart I forgot could even exist.
SCARLET ANGEL by ST Abby
Wow! This one started out with a freakin’ bang! I loved it.
It was like, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM! Haha, take that sucker!
At the end of each of these wee books is a cliff hanger and it makes me anxious as hell, lol.
Quite often when there’s a cliffhanger at the end of one book, the next one doesn’t really deliver.
BUT THESE ONES DO!
Okay, enough shouting and jumping for me, I’m a chubby girl and I’m out of breath now.
I am totally girl crushing on her right now. She is awesome sauce!
She is vengeance and fury incarnate and it is brilliant and heartbreaking at the same time.
We find out some more of her horrific past and a little of what they did to her brother. It’s so sad y’all. You completely understand why she does the things she does, and also why Jake is helping so much.
We still don’t get the whole story but with each book, a little more is revealed and my chest hurts.
I want so much for Lana. I want her to have the happily ever after that she deserves. I want her to have peace of mind but I’m not sure how that’s gonna go down, to be honest.
Warning: The following excerpt may be too much for some people. Trigger warning.
I stare blankly at the side as he runs his lips along my neck. I’m drenched from the lube, and the pain is more bearable, but to keep from crying, I picture someone riding in to save us. They’ll start by chopping his head off while he’s inside me. That way I’ll see him die every time I close my eyes, and I’ll sleep better at night. “Who’s tapping in?” Morgan asks, laughing as he cups my breasts one last time. I don’t even fight when I’m flipped over on the concrete so the next one doesn’t have to see my bloody face. I’m tired of seeing. I’m tired of breathing. I just want it to stop.
Logan just gets better with each book. I need him and Lana to be together after everything ends but I have my doubts that it’ll happen the way I want it to.
He’s FBI because he wants to take the bad guys down, yes, but he also believes in the law so…I dunno if he could get over what she’s done. Not completely
He’s gonna feel like an absolute tool when he realises that she’s been right under his nose the whole time and it’s going to hurt like hell.
My only negative thought about this book is the lack of sex, but then again it was never meant to be erotic like most (not all though) of the other books I review. It’s a dark, romantic suspense novel. And so in that regard, it really is spot on.
These two have amazing chemistry but it plays a smaller role in the story than the vengeance – which is as it should be.
Still hot as hell when they’re together though, lol.
My back hits the glass, and my legs go around his shoulders. My eyes screw shut when he puts his face right where I want it, and he latches on to that bundle of nerves he knows how to manipulate too well. He’s more aggressive than usual, almost as though he’s punishing me, taking no mercy on me when I whimper and squirm and try to make him bald with my hold on his hair. My head falls back against the glass as I cry out, already lost in sensation from the masterful mouth he owns. He drops me to the ground in a smooth motion, and spins me to face the glass. My palms shoot up, catching me before I slam into it, and he lifts my lower half, lining it up so he can thrust in forcefully.
FINAL THOUGHTS on SCARLET ANGEL by ST Abby
This book told us so much more of Lana’s story. How deep the poison runs in that town and gives us more insight as to why there are so many people on her hit list.
It’s been bloodcurdling so far, but I know that the more is revealed, the worse I’ll feel.
This is definitely the best one so far.
