    I' m not fond of Silver's writing skills but her storylines always intrigue me, they are indeed my guilty pleasure. It's an experience where you know from the first moment, that the book you reading is trashy and filled with plot holes and errors and in spite of all that you can't stop yourself. I' ve read worse, really, really worse, than that. Yes i hate the abusive hero and the TSTL heroine, but still for me, this one was much better than her previous works.

It's an experience where you know from the first moment, that the book you reading is trashy and filled with plot holes and errors and in spite of all that you can't stop yourself. I' ve read worse, really, really worse, than that. Yes i hate the abusive hero and the TSTL heroine, but still for me, this one was much better than her previous works. The editing issues were far less than usually and the plot had some very good points, mostly the sex. Cord Helmsworth was an asshole, plain and simple. But at least he loved his daughter with his whole heart and was quite straightforward when his mother strarted her little tricks. Otherwise, i couldn't stand the uncontrollable usage on the word "Fuck" and all its variations, the juvenile idiosyncrasies and of course the justification of his actions. I don't have much to say about Zania, she was almost absent from the book, absolutely blant and tedious. I didn't really care for her, but i liked little Mia, she is a real princess.. So the story is about a couple that get's seperated by some malevolent forces -aka the hero's mother- and after six years they meet again. Zania has a terrible secret that Cord will soon find out. He is still in love with her but can't forgive the way she treated him and his heart in the past. But not everything is as it seems to be.. THOUGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK - I liked his father. - Too many editing issues. - The sex in some parts is very hot. - I can't stress enough how awful Cord is mostly at the beginning.

Oh, and the editing was considerably less horrible than it usually is with a Jordan Silver book (and by considerably I mean it's still there, just less god-awful than usual). What didn't I like? The plot or the characters. The male MC, Cord, is an abusive rapist asshole, basically. Though it's explained away in "he was so hurt at her leaving him five years ago and it destroyed the happy, loving man he'd been!" bullshit. The female MC, Zania, is just too stupid to live. She ran from their "loving" relationship 5 years ago when pregnant - and though I DNFed, I would bet money it was because Cord's mother threatened her - because that's the kind of shitty plot this book has - and has only returned because their daughter is sick. When Cord doesn't prove to be a donor match, the doctor tells him their best bet is to get pregnant and have another child to pull marrow, etc. from. So Cord goes home and forces Zania to fuck him again, and again, and again until she's pregnant. But we're supposed to be okay with it because he gives her a little clit action. So, she's enjoying it, right? It's not rape that way! Here's a little lesson for you: To be an "Alpha male" in the traditional sense simply meant the most dominant, strongest, or the most confident in a group. I have absolutely no idea how or when "Alpha Male" became synonymous with abusive, vain, arrogant, conceited, harmful, stalking sociopaths. But it needs to stop! For God's sake, people - it's NOT romantic, or sweet, or special to be abused. It's just not.

    I've read this author's books before and have enjoyed them. I was looking forward to the story, unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. The male lead Cord suddenly discovers he has a child, when Zania his ex who just disappeared years before, returns asking for his help as the little girl is very ill. It's difficult to write this review without giving spoilers. But I found it distasteful that he strikes Zania, and on another occasion he tries to choke her.

It's difficult to write this review without giving spoilers. But I found it distasteful that he strikes Zania, and on another occasion he tries to choke her. The story is written from his POV which grated on my nerves. As he was consumed with anger and wanted revenge on Zania. This was supposed to be a romance, but it certainly didn't feel like one. As for Zania she had far too many TSTL moments for me. Why she didn't tell him why she packed up and left was beyond me. There were other elements of the plot that didn't sit well with me either. All in all this tale was too depressing in the way it was written.

    ***FOUR STARS*** Whew, what a story! Cord was an OTT scathingly hateful asshole, and Zania was an absolute doormat, who never once fought Cord back. And in reality, this story was totally unbelievable as well. I'm not sure exactly why I enjoyed it as much as I did. THAT being said though, I savored every page of this story.

Most of these types of stories are told through the eyes of the heroine, and while Cord was a total dick through 90% of this story, I also felt his pain from a betrayal he perceived done to him in the past. It was fun experiencing him finally thawing out and warming up to Zania after hating her for so long. (view spoiler)[It was fun seeing Cord's mother and his ex girlfriend getting what was coming to them too! (hide spoiler)] Not sure what my sickness is, but I LOVE these kinds of stories. I was happy to finally find another one of these asshole hero stories that sucked me in from the very first page and kept me glued through the entire story, to the HEA ending. Definitely going to check out more by this author. Heads up though, this one is definitely not for the easily triggered. They should avoid at all cost.

That's just DUMB. It's not an easy read with him almost raping her every night for a baby (to save his kid). I was very very uncomfortable with that! She was just such a doormat. I could not really feel sorry for her after I found out why she left him. I was thinking it was because she caught him in bed with another woman but nope it was so lame I will not spoil it for you. Read this one the WTFness. It is worth the read but not a reread unless I feel like this kind HOT mess.

    I think I could have liked this one. It had elements I liked. I admit to liking the overdone plot of: alpha hero taking revenge on the misunderstood mother of his secret baby. But the writing just wasn't strong enough for me even if the sex was kinda hot at times (if you like it rough and dirty). I'm also not a huge fan of the first person POV. I never got why the heroine didn't just tell the H why she left him. What was preventing her from doing that once she came back? Maybe he wouldn't have be I think I could have liked this one.

I never got why the heroine didn't just tell the H why she left him. What was preventing her from doing that once she came back? Maybe he wouldn't have believed her, but she could have tried. Also, there was NO apology from the H for the way he acted toward her before learning the truth. Of course, she was tstl for keeping it from him, but he turned around and blamed her with everything once it all came to light. No matter how stupid her actions were, it doesn't excuse abusive behavior. He slapped her and treated her horribly. He could have at least apologized. The whole secret was a very artificial and poorly explained way of keeping tensions high on the author's part. Also, I'm not a prude. I don't care if the word 'fuck' is used, sometimes I use it if my level of frustration is at an extreme high. But, it loses it's impact and makes you sound like a moron if you use it 5 times per sentence - even in your own head (shit was used almost as much). It was very distracting. According to my word search it was used 434 times. Fucking seriously, 434 fucking times. Fuck.

    trigger warning: rape, domestic violence, verbal/physical/emotional abuse This pos guy repeatedly rapes, threatens to kill, beats, abuses, and manipulates the mother of his child and it's all "justified" because she ~really hurt his feelings when she left him~. This "book" is absolutely disgusting.

    This was like a soap opera, because it was full of angst, evil OW, evil mother in law, plots, plans and all sorts of nasty shit that got in between the hero and heroine. It was a hard story to read because the hero really made the heroine suffer for leaving him but his vengeance against those that had wronged them, made up for the suffering. I love how Jordan Silver's heroes always make sure that the evil doers suffer a lot ! Justice is served at the end and it was well served too.

    Well, another hot, twisted, Jordan Silver story... this one is like an upgraded edition on Deception. It is not the best quality and you and me both know this is a smutfest, so no one is being kidded here -- haha. Still, this one had actually well written, very disturbing, dark and complex intimate scenes of hate/lies/sex/punishment mixtures that just added an extra star.

But after seeing the relatively low ratings this book has generated from my goodread pals, i decided to be abit generous.

The plot in itself was not bad but was not original. There was too much of his internal monologue and for some reason, authors tend to color Male POV's with profanity and macho-istic internal chatter. I was almost getting tired of the number of times *FUCK* was used that I was almost close to hitting my head on the wall. I thought the Hero went way overboard with his anger at the Heroine. There was very less communication or dialogues of Zania therefore didn't feel the angst it required and I felt that Cord could have done abit more groveling considering that he was a mean sonofabitch to her. However, having said that, i would not mind exploring other books of this author.

    I haven't even got a third into the novel when I needed to stop and say the way this male character is acting, is utter bullshit. It'd be a cold day in hell before I let a man treat me like he is. Why would any woman take that shit? --------------- Okay, all done reading. Cord was a fucking asshole. I disliked the novel and found it absolutely pointless. Normally I love Jordan Silver books but this one was nothing but a huge disappointment for me.

    This is my first book by this author. This is not an interracial story. I almost want to say that this is a dark romance story because Cord the male lead is so angry and negative regarding his girlfriend who left him and he did not now why and then she turns up again in his life. This story is told from Cord's POV. He uses lots of colourful language too!! A good read but this book will not be everyone's cup of tea!

    The topic of a sick secret child discovering her father intrigued me but... Well the leading man is a thoroughly dislikable, arrogant character & mean. The heroine allows his verbal slaps, sexually assulted & doesn't talk to her lover before fleeing or defend herself when she returns. She's supposed to be intelligent & fiesty but she doesn't display it. Needs editing.

    So I went into this story just expecting the usual J. Silver smut and on that note, I actually hated it*. Here's the thing, I love me a secret baby novel. The heroine runs away and hides because of some unknown reason, the hero is devastated, the heroine has to come back because of money. This is my KRYPTONITE. So even though I didn't like the sexy times, I loved the angst. It was so GOOD. I did not like the sickness plot. We know the daughter is going to live, this is not THAT kind of story.

And I actually read this plot line in a different story. It was called My Sister's Keeper and the mom and dad did have to do IVF because they needed to make sure the next child was an actual match and they needed science to help with that. So the idea of leaving it up to fate was far fetched. What I'm trying to say is that I would have liked this story a lot more if Mia wasn't sick, or was sick and Zania just came to him for money. This idea she needed a bone marrow match and they needed to have another kid kind of spoiled it for me. *Our hero hated our heroine for the majority of the novel and even though the sex wasn't forced, the fact that he was so mean to her didn't sit well with me. I mean all of Silver's characters are assholes so I don't know what I'm trying to say but yeah, the sexy times were off to me. But whatever, it kept me up till 1am last night because I wanted to know the ending.

    I cannot believe I finished this book. I can't even believe I'm giving it 1.5 stars. The "hero" was a straight up sociopath. A narcissist. A woman abuser. A jackass. And a moron. The heroine was way TSTL. I mean, truly, she may as well have been a deaf, blind, dumb mute for all she said and did in the book. Which was nothing.

The author did get a few (though not many) details correct, and since I have a close, personal connection to pediatric leukemia I wanted to see where that part of the story went. So 1.5 stars for that, even though it wasn't realistically done.

    What's done in the dark always comes to light Jordan Silver has become one of my favorite authors. Her stories have a way of drawing you in from the first word and keeping you enraptured until the last. Her characters are so well developed and human. Cord and Zania's story is so realistic. Joy and Camille epitomize what villainy is. So much so that you can't help but root for the loving couple they attempt to destroy. The perfect read for a quick escape from the mundane.
