This book hurt... a lot

5 Sizzling Stars!!!

"...You need to be my everything." 

This is a "love" story of Ellie(Eden) and Javier.

So I should say that after this book, I'm not even sure on who's team I am.

At the beginning we got a glimpse at a very young and, in my opinion, very naive Ellie Watt. Of course she has this big bad plan for revenge. That should have made her into a bad-ass girl.
Well let me say that it haven't worked out all that well.
She got soft.
Ah, I forgot to mention, - she fell in love too.
And not just to anybody...
But to a very charming, very possessive and very, very cruel man Javier...
and oh my.. he's definitely a charmer! A real ladies man. He knows what he's doing, and he is doing it well.

I would really like Javier's book, with his POV. He's a real puzzle to me.
It looks like he's possessed with Ellie (Eden) and yet he's so distant sometimes. I would love to take a glance in his mind.

"So why did you come here?"
He smiled lazily. "I told you. I'm persistent. I don't like being told no." 

Reading the ending of this book really really hurt. I was so disappointed ... although.. I actually knew how this would all end.
I was still hoping .. for some kind of HE I guess. I'm a romantic to the core. I believe even those bad, ugly people with rotten hearts deserve to love and be loved. Sad.. I know :)

"Revenge has been my lover for too long," he said, breath hot on my neck. He began sliding down my body, toward the floor, arms around me.
"Power, my savior. I need to learn how to put you first, above those things. I need you to help me. I don't want to love anything more than you, Eden, so please, I'm begging you, show me how. You need to be my everything."

So anyway, I think I'll play safe for now and choose Team Ellie
for now!
I need more info about our 'boyz'. :)
