Jules Donovan has been in and out of unsavory foster homes and repulsive motels her entire life. She’s known nothing but loss, abandonment, crime, and pain. Now that she's aged out of the system, she can’t remember ever having dreams for her future because she’s constantly fighting for daily survival.
When she meets the Riley brothers, there’s something about them that draws her in. She’s never let her guard down, but Dante and Holden make her feel valuable, like she actually matters. And for the first time in her life, she senses something she’s never experienced before—protection. But can these mysterious brothers keep her safe from the dark monsters that lie in wait, ready for their final revenge? And how in the hell does older brother Dante know so much about her anyway? Unbeknownst to her, things have been set in motion ever since she was ripped from her mother’s womb and, as each jagged piece of her life unfolds, she will begin to wonder, who’s really in charge of her fate? **TRIGGER WARNING...this novel contains non-explicit scenes of abuse.

This was my first read by K.A. Hunter and I was not disappointed! Right away this book had my interest!
Jules had a really rough start in life, in and out of foster homes and no luck with finding a family. I honestly don't know how she survived as long as she did. I would have given up a long time ago. Things were just not getting any better and she was close to giving up.
Dante and Holden Riley are just what Jules needs in her life. She met the two while at work one night and over time, she had formed a close friendship, with Holden especially.
I had mixed feelings about these brothers though. Something just wasn't adding up but I couldn't put my finger on it. When things finally came to light, to say I was shocked was and understatement!
