    4.25 Stars "We all want thngs that aren’t good for us, Natalia. Sometimes the wanting is the fun part. It’s just the having part can be too damned dangerous sometimes." I loved this story! It was really great! I liked everything about it! From the first page of it I knew I would love it! This story is about a guy, Cade, who was meant to be a lawyer but instead he has gone from being a respected war veteran to the vice president of a motorcycle club. Just for one reason: to find his missing sister. 4.25 Stars "We all want thngs that aren’t good for us, Natalia. Sometimes the wanting is the fun part.

This story is about a guy, Cade, who was meant to be a lawyer but instead he has gone from being a respected war veteran to the vice president of a motorcycle club. Just for one reason: to find his missing sister. After seven years searching, now he has some clues! But there is a teeny tiny problem and that is the daughter of the cartel. Every thing was perfect; the story-line was great, the characters were awesome (actually there were some secondary characters that I would like to read about them and know about them more). The story was well-paced! But the only thing that bothered me was that when Cade found out about what happened to his sister (when Natalia told him) he didn’t show any reaction! I mean he didn’t show any sadness or… I just wanted to feel his rage at that moment but he didn’t show anything. She was his sister and I expected more emotion at that moment and it bothered me so much! The story is told from Cade’s POV, 1st person and it’s a standalone! All in all, I loved it and hope you enjoy it as well!

    Cade Preston grew up with his family’s expectations that he’d be an attorney; however, plans changed upon returning from the military when his sister, Laura, disappeared without a trace. Thereafter, Cade began his search with the assistance of his best friend, Jamie (aka Rebel), taking them all over the world and eventually recruiting help and forming the Widow Makers motorcycle club.

Thereafter, Cade began his search with the assistance of his best friend, Jamie (aka Rebel), taking them all over the world and eventually recruiting help and forming the Widow Makers motorcycle club. Now the Vice President of the club and after years of searching, Cade has a real lead as to his sister’s location and takes off to find Laura. “I’m going to find my sister. Even if it fucking kills me, I am going to find her.” During Cade’s trek to Ecuador, he encounters Fernando Villalobos, a powerful drug lord who claimed rights to Laura. In trying to penetrate the compound, Cade’s fears are met, as he witnesses the kind of men and women who pay to abuse enslaved women for their own sexual kicks. Desperate to find his sister, Cade doesn’t expect to set his sights on Natalia, the drug cartel’s daughter. Having a propensity for certain vices, Cade knows the danger he’s in, but moves forward the only way he knows how. “Sometimes the wanting is the fun part. It’s just the having part can be too damned dangerous sometimes.” Cade’s attraction to Natalia is not only because she is beautiful but also because despite the danger and evil she's witnessed, Natalia is strong and willing to take a chance on what is right. While finding allies in each other, they forge ahead with a common goal. Of course there are moments that are incredibly hot and steamy when Cade unleashes his vices on Natalia. “Come on my dick, Natalia. That’s it. That’s a good girl. Soak me. Drench me. I wanna feel you squirting all over my cock.” While Cade tries to insulate Natalia from the impending danger resulting from his ultimate plan of revenge, certain forces are set in motion. With only have a few options, Cade acts swiftly and hopes he hasn’t made the biggest mistake of his life. “A good man will do necessary, evil things in order to help others, but he will not revel in his actions.” For me, Callie Hart is at her best when writing action and in Vice, the thrilling pace is nonstop. Upon being introduced to Cade in the Dead Man’s Ink series, he was always intriguing to me due to his rage, righteousness and his deep need to avenge his sister’s disappearance. Cade is sexy with a rugged exterior but he is a southern gentleman as well. Finding Natalia somewhat naïve yet a fighter is quite complimentary to Cade’s character and seeing how their relationship progresses will be entertaining. Vice is a book that can be read as a standalone, but in my opinion, the reading experience would be richer to those who are familiar with the Dead Man’s Ink series, especially given the driving force behind Cade’s mission. There were a few areas in the story where I wanted more detail since there has been a long lead up to this book, but the overall vision for the future of characters is promising. Needless to say, I look forward to reading more about Cade and Natalia, as well as, the rest of the Widow Makers. *An ARC was generously provided by author in exchange for an honest review.*

    **2 Stars** I am so disappointed with this story. To start with I am not sure I can classify this as a Romance. The plot was unbelievable. The lack of depth in the characters also didn't help. Natalie was a very inconsistent character. She seemed very strong and confident in the beginning to later become a victim of her own father with no traumas. Apparently she's been through a lot but it was left aside as if it was nothing. She didn’t seem affected by that at all. How bizarre.

She seemed very strong and confident in the beginning to later become a victim of her own father with no traumas. Apparently she's been through a lot but it was left aside as if it was nothing. She didn’t seem affected by that at all. How bizarre. I had to suspend belief too many times. Incredible things happened. Bellow is what I found questionable and failing to convince in the plot: .)The way Cade gets in inside the cartel leader’s fortress with no plan whatsoever. .)Fernando trusted Cade too fast despite the fact that Harrison (his security guy) tried to warn him about the dodgy office and moreover, encouraging a friendship between Natalie and Cade. .)The way Cade dealt with the situation in the end, on his own. He was one for God’s sake against them all! It was a bit too much. He was no super hero. .)Ocho, the mute bodyguard helping Laura *rolling eyes*. .)And finally, Laura's fake death. The villain created by the author was impressive though. The wolves feeding time was shocking. Romance wise, well… was it a Romance?? I am not a fan of instalove. I didn’t feel a connection developing between the MC’s. There was no affection or tenderness. I felt that in the end she had to stay with Cade because, as a matter of fact, there was no other option for her, as an obligation. Overall, it wasn’t a bad read. However, there is nothing in this book that will make me remember this story in a few weeks’ time. I’ll settle for an OK read.

When he gets a lead in Equador, he ends up taking off there and creating another identity for himself so that he can implement himself in the big drug cartel where his sis may be. This is where he finds Natalia...and she happens to be the daughter of the Head of the cartel..The focus in the beginning is on finding Laura, (his sister) and we are shown a big part of how the cartel runs, and the sex trafficking that is going on there as well. This story is definitely not all roses and hearts...there is a very dark tone to it, and there are some gruesome scenes as well. It is not for the faint of heart...believe me. Natalia's father is a certifiable nut job...yikes...he is phsyco...I get the willies just thinking about that dude!!! The sex scenes between Cade and Natalia are so friggen hot!! Callie Hart knows how to make her couples ooze chemistry...gah...that scene in the treehouse...holy hell was that sexy!!! Ha ha..there were elements that I loved to this story, and then others that got me frustrated! All in all though, I will continue to follow Callie Hart's series. I like how this one is a stand alone, yet there are characters from other series that are a part of this story too. This makes it so I have to read ALL of her work..which I pretty much have!! I do enjoy how she weaves a tale!!

It is an emotional journey that is packed with action, vulnerability, grit, raw honesty, and love. Callie Hart strips her readers bare and awakens their senses. So if you are looking for a story that was utterly addictive and stunningly intertwined elements of grit, prowess, sexiness, and fierceness then look no further than Vice. The writing was beyond brilliant as layers of darkness and truth were tangibly scattered giving a depth and raw understanding to the story of Cade Preston.

Nope its not that simple. Vice is not a straightforward MC story. I thought that this was secondary to the actual plot. Yeah Cade Preston is the VP of the Widow Makers MC but this is not what this book is about. War comes in different shapes and forms but there are three rules that you obey: orders protect the person standing next to you Stay alive After leaving the military Cade sticks to the laws of combat and as the VP of Widow Makers MC he stays loyal and stay alive - he follows these rules. The beginning. when Cade's sister comes across the "love of her life" finger f**king some 21 year old he doesn't understand her problem - you see he doesn't know that Laura loves him. Falling in love with Jamie is like falling off the Empire State Building....praying that the whole way down you are going to survive the experience, but your head tells you "not a chance" you won't survive the fall. Tomorrow - the talk needs to happen. The air needs to be cleared between Jamie and Laura....... but tomorrow never happens because Laura disappear that night leaving behind a shredded dress, underwear and shoes. Every item cut by a knife. The story moves on 7 years and we find out that the club was a by product for the search for Laura. Over 7 years of searching and nothing until one night Cade receives a photograph of Laura, a leather glove wrapped round her throat. It was used as collateral when a hotel deal had gone wrong. Julio Perez - cartel boss knows where Laura is but believing that the Widow Makers won't go hunting for him he takes off to Mexico. From this point the story really develops and we are introduced to Cortina Villalobos - the untouchable daughter of Ecuador's notorious cartel leader - Fernando Villalobos and his House of Wolves. Cade infiltrates the House of Wolves pretending to be a buyer for cocaine..................... but the House of Wolves delivers a stark warning to Cade - remember the rules - stick to them or die. This story did captivate me because where it starts off doesn't finish in the way you expect. There were times I swallowed hard at some of the things that happens to Cade and I have to admit there were times it was too much - (and eye rolling) you know the insta love and the super hero aspect portrayed by Cade and the dealings that go on in the House of Wolves. It is raw and brutal and there were times I had to re-read some of the storyline to understand what was going on but it did deliver a different read. Decent delivery from Callie Hart albeit far fetched. Wonder whats coming next?

This book started off with a very realistic feel, but then veered off into being a bit far-fetched in some areas. I expected lots of action scenes with murder and mayhem, as this book is centered around a cartel's skin trading business, but there were certain scenes (view spoiler)[(involving the wolves) (hide spoiler)] that seemed really over the top, and were resolved fairytale-style--all within the nick of time. I also found the heroine to be very emotional. She was either close to tears or crying nearly every time she and Cade were alone, but she wasn't whiny and I liked that about her. At the same time, she seemed less three-dimensional than Cade, and I didn't completely warm to her. The steamy scenes were scorching hot, though! Despite the dark theme explored in this book, (view spoiler)[(sex trafficking) (hide spoiler)] , the author had a way of presenting a humorous enough character to balance with the underlying dark content of this story. Enjoyed!

    This was so not me. This is dark with dark subject matter. There is so much evil in this story that it chills me to the bone. I wasn't thrilled with Cade. He turned me off from the start. He is a tad unrealistic, he is in all theses off the wall situations with odds totally against him, but always comes out smelling like a rose. Then to me the way he treated Natalie just blew my mind.

You would think she would be traumatized by everything but no she just loves it and has no triggers or flashbacks and thinks Cade is wonderful. Then there is Natalie.... Natalie is a totally unrealistic character. She is totally healed in just a couple of pages and nothing bothers her. REALLY?!? She goes from being a slave to her father and seeing and having all theses evil things being done to a normal girl. I could not stomach this at all. I am sure others will love it and I of course am in the minority here.

As vice president of the Widow Makers Motorcycle club, he’s been loyal. He’s fought tooth and nail to stay alive. He’s shed blood to save the lives of those who matter to him. And now he’s gone and done something he swore he would never do. He’s fallen for the one girl he can’t have. Cortina Villalobos is an untouchable. The daughter of one of Ecuador’s most notorious cartel leaders, she is beyond Cade’s reach in every way. Fernando Villalobos is a murderer and a madman. He will kill anyone who dares look twice at his daughter, and yet Cade can’t walk away. Will he disobey orders? Will he abandon his club? And will taking on the House of Wolves cost him his life? Cade Preston is a man on a mission, a mission to find his sister who was kidnapped and taken from him and his family. As news of her location is leaked Cade goes in search for her doing whatever necessary to get to her. When information sends him heading to The House of wolves, the Villalobos family he hatches up a plan to fit in and find her but things soon change when he finds himself in a situation with Natalia Villalobos. Will Cade manage to get passed a mute man determined to hurt him, a pack of man eating wolves desperate for human flesh, a man desperate to kill him and a woman who stops his heart just by glancing at him? Callie Hart is an absolutely incredible woman and her writing never fails to amaze me. After hearing Cade was getting his own story I had high expectations for it and this woman just smashed them into a thousand tiny pieces. I LOVED IT! “I hope you step on a Lego, you arrogant motherfucker.” Cade has always been one of my favourites in the Dead Man's Ink Series (Rebel, Rogue and Ransom) and it was great to hear from Rebel in Cade's book. Callie's writing has a knack of keeping you hooked and determined to finish it the day you begin and leaves you wanting MORE, she never disappoints. If you haven't read a Callie hart book before then you're definitely missing out. After reading the first Blood and Roses book (Deviant) I've been addicted, you should start right away, you'll love meeting her characters and wonder why you didn't meet them sooner!

    Finally Cade gets a story. He is such an awesome character that I have loved since he was first introduced. He is so loyal and his friendship with Rebel is one of my favorites.

    3.5 stars. Can someone tell me why the hell in the blurb it says the heroine's name is Cortina...but in the book the heroine's name is Natalia!? I was waiting a while for this Cortina to come into the story only to realise that Natalia was our heroine...and this Cortina character doesn't actually exist. ----------------- Sooo this book was...interesting. Knowing this book is connected to both the 'Blood and Roses' and the 'Dead Man's Ink' series I automatically thought it would have the same v 3.5 stars.

Knowing this book is connected to both the 'Blood and Roses' and the 'Dead Man's Ink' series I automatically thought it would have the same vibe and feel to it as the others. But it was so different and honestly, kind of far fetched with some of the things that went down. We met Cade Preston in the 'Dead Man's Ink' series. Vice President of his MC, ex-military and for the last seven years he and his best friend Rebel have been searching for his sister who was taken one night. Finally after seven long years he has a strong lead to where she has been taken to. The House of Wolves. Ecuador. Cade's broken every law, killed mercilessly, all in his pursuit to bring his sister home. His guilt, rage and love for her never leaves him but pushes him. Makes him cold and utterly ruthless. He won't give up on her, will never rest until she's back home safe...even going about his mission on his own. He finds the man who took her. He plays the part to make him trust him. He gets closer and closer till he's within reach to deliver the bastard death. But not everything goes to plan when the man who took his sister is also the father of the woman he's slowly falling for. So what made tilt my head a little in that "yeah-f*cking-right" way... 1: The wolf thing. I felt like I was in the middle of a Twilight movie... or even a Taylor Swift video... The whole 'death-by-wolf' parts were, to put it lightly, gruesome, bloody and cruel. It proved to those in Fernados (or whatever the bad guy's name is) service who is in charge and what happens to those who don't follow his rules. I was all for that! Gritty, dark and down right pure psychotic. BUT it did feel like I was in some kind of Hollywood movie. It was unrealistic. 2: The fact Cade was on his own the entire time. A one man army, taking down two huge crime organizations? As the most respected Emily Gilmore says... 3: The development of Cade and Natalia's relationship. It just...happened. I didn't feel anything more than attraction and lust. I didn't believe Cade's growing affection because all he ever talked about was Natalia's body. Her freckles. Her spectacular ass. How he wanted to bend her over every table and take her. And while we're on the topic that is Natalia, she started off as this badass chick with a wicked knife...only to turn into a damsel. That was annoying. Things just seemed a bit too out of this world for this book to be believable but I did enjoy it nonetheless. If it weren't connected the Callie Hart's other series I'd be more convinced. But because I'm familiar with the world Hart's created...it's like we've taken a trip to Mars with this story. (view spoiler)[ I'm so glad Laura is alive. And not because I cared about her. I didn't. I've been anticipating this moment since she confessed to being in love with Rebel/Jamie. I always thought when she came back that she'd create problems for Sophie and Jamie, still be in love with Jamie and use her having been captured to take him away from Sophie by 'needing his comfort'...but it wouldn't work out and she'd be kicked to the curb and put in her place. But damn it...it looks like she's accepted Jamie won't love her and is dealing with the sh*t she went through the mature way. Damn damn damn. HAHAHA I just love drama. (hide spoiler)]

If you have read the Dead Man's Ink Series, you will be familiar with Cade and why he found himself out on a limb. Cade's disregard for his safety came across as if he was on a suicide mission at times. His willingness to put his life on the line constantly had me struggling to connect with him. Natalia was an unexpected shining light in the darkness. How she managed to remain so positive was a miracle. While she brought joy into the story, she was also off limits to Cade. Being attracted to her added another layer of threat to his well-being. Vice was a quick paced story, but there was a lot of caution being exercised, and patience was required. The location setting for the central part of the story was far from idealistic. Not my idea of a resort and to work there would be hell. So with a setting one step away from damnation, I found it hard to remain optimistic for the main characters' well-being. There’s a good chance my feelings as I read Vice was based on expectations from previous Callie Hart books I’ve read. Glad I hung in there because, by the time I reached the epilogue, I was pleased to have read Vice. This review and others can be found at EDGyReviews

    Wow!! What a story!! I've always loved Cade since meeting him at the start of this series (he's actually my favourite of the Widow Makers- sorry Rebel!) so was really pleased that he was getting his own story. We meet Cade in this story on a search for his sister, Laura, who was kidnapped 7 years ago after a party at Rebel's dads house on her way home. Cade and Jamie (Rebel) haven't stopped looking for her - this is why they started the MC. Cade finds himself at the House of Wolves where he's det Wow!! What a story!!

There he meets Natalia, daughter of Fernando Villalobos (head of the House of Wolves), and he is warned to stay away from her. Fernando is a sick bastard. The Servicio are a group of men and women who have been kept at the house for many years for one thing or another and are basically sex slaves (I won't give anything away). The twist at about 75% left me speechless and from then on out the story was so tense that I couldn't NOT read "just one more chapter". The wood chipper has to be the best thing ever!! Loved this book and can't wait for more!! ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

    The pieces of this story did not come together for me like other characters of Callie Hart's - Zane or Rebel. There was no build up to the relationship as the story focused on bizarre sex scenes, death hunts and wolves tearing people apart. All of Callie's books have a dark edge to them but this was really dark and the characters were blah.

    Loved this book!!! Started out a little slow but I was still hooked from the start. I really liked the story line and was completely shocked at the twist toward the end. I loved how the relationship between Natalie and Cade was built up and wasn't something that was just jumped into. Loved the tree house scene. I have loved reading this author's work.

    I was honored to receive an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Honestly? I absolutely loved it. Callie Hart has a real talent in fleshing out her characters and building the worlds in which they live, in this case the world of Cade Preston, VP of the Widow Makers MC. Cade’s sister, Laura, was abducted without a trace 7 years ago and he and his lifelong best friend, Jamie (who is also the President of the MC) have spent those years searching for any trace of her.

Callie Hart has a real talent in fleshing out her characters and building the worlds in which they live, in this case the world of Cade Preston, VP of the Widow Makers MC. Cade’s sister, Laura, was abducted without a trace 7 years ago and he and his lifelong best friend, Jamie (who is also the President of the MC) have spent those years searching for any trace of her. Lead after lead has led to only dead ends. Finally, however, a new lead emerges and Cade, without the back up of his MC, follows it to the jungles of Eucador where he finds himself a de facto prisoner of a vicious cartel leader, Eduardo Villalobos. It’s not all bad, though. The cartel leader has a beautiful daughter, Natalia. Are her loyalties to her father? Does she have information that can lead Cade closer to the truth about the disappearance of his sister? This story makes you squirm. Both in a good way (want to press your thighs together kind of way) and a bad way (stomach roiling, heart pounding, OMG that can’t be happening kind of way). It is fast paced and intense, filled with characters to cheer for, to cry for, and others for whom you will sign with satisfaction when they meet their just end. This book is a standalone but if you have not read the Dead Man’s Ink series by Ms. Hart, I would encourage you to do so. Not only to provide some additional back story to Cade and Jamie, but because it is a great read.

    I am in the minority on this one and almost could not finish this book. I am a Callie Hart fan but this one started out great and then........................it just fizzled. At the 40% mark is where I started losing my interest and at the 78% mark is where is spiraled down hill. (view spoiler)[ Where it started going downhill for me was when the wolves attacked Cade and Natalia in the jungle. Forgive me if I missed something, but did they not kill a few wolves and had blood all over them? Why d I am in the minority on this one and almost could not finish this book.

    Way out there.. If Callie and Quentin Tarantino wrote a book together, I imagine it would be this one. I'm not sure it was a hit for me. I've been looking forward to Cade's story and his search for his sister, but this just had so much jammed in that it was often too much and over the top. It didn't feel truly Callie, but almost like a parody. There were too many unbelievable plot twists and ridiculous characters to count. It came off a little cartoony to me. Not my favorite by Callie Hart. Way out there.. If Callie and Quentin Tarantino wrote a book together, I imagine it would be this one. I'm not sure it was a hit for me.

    I've always loved Cade Preston. He didn't allow Jamie to help him in this chapter of his life because he's already put his ass on the line for him so much. Who knew in his hunt for his sister he would find a relationship? I was blown away by the twist with Laura and Then Ocho, Plato and Natalie. This was an easy read and I loved Blood & Roses series and Dead Mans Ink so I already knew I loved Cade Preston. I've always loved Cade Preston.

    I can definitely say this book was largely too dark for me, and I never quite stomached the heroine's relationship with her father and how easily she went into a partnership with the hero. This Callie Hart story didn't work so well for me but that's a "it's not you it's me" problem.

For those who aren’t though, this book gives you all of the information you need to be able to pick it up and read it as a standalone. And all you really need to know is that Cade has been looking for his sister for seven years, has wound up in a life and dealing with people who he wouldn’t have chosen, in order to be able to locate Laura. Finally it appears that his search is nearing the end but he has to go deep into Villalobos territory for resolution. This is one of those books that shows that life isn’t black and white. Many of us deal in shades of grey when needed, just to survive. There are many things Cade has done in the past and does within this that wouldn’t necessarily make you think he was a good person, but sometimes a good person has to do bad things. Whilst Cade has been in many dangerous situations before, the Villalobos estate is a whole new level of crazy and this time, he’s on his own. The main man Fernando soons shows himself to be far removed from what he first appears. In a crazy situation surrounded by enemies, Cade manages to find a few allies amongst the ruins. I’m glad that the storyline went this way, because it made it more realistic than thinking one man could go in and end up anything other than dead. One of them comes in the form of Fernando’s daughter Natalia, and it soon becomes clear that she doesn’t share her Daddy’s tastes and interests. She is however, rather interested in Cade. Natalia and Cade was hot and heavy. And the library - Callie, you’re a girl after my own heart to go there - who doesn’t love books ;) Natalia’s been sheltered from the world all of her life, but she knows what she doesn’t want and like and she’s starting to learn the opposite. I did feel that the resolution crept up on us though. We were in the normal story and then we were suddenly a go for raining hell down and escaping. We are told that Cade told Natalia to prepare, but I would have preferred whispered words on the pillow at night to show more of a build to this moment. I also was disappointed that Natalia wasn’t kicking ass and taking names when the moment came. But what a resolution it was. Hell did absolutely break loose and the final confrontation sure went to a place where pretty much nobody would imagine. I loved that bit - sick I know but bite me - I very nearly laughed. This book is bloody and violent, there is no two ways about that. That’s really to be expected when you are thinking about top level criminals - they are hardly going to wave you off at the door with a handshake. If you are of a delicate disposition though, you might want to wait to eat until after you’ve read this. At the end of it all, I was so happy to finally get what Cade needed. He swept in, got the girl and everything that went before was so worth it for the final resolution.

    Romance Readers Retreat

    4.5 Stars I first encountered Cade Preston in the Blood & Roses series and from that point on his story intrigued me so so much and to say I was excited to read this book is an understatement. Now firstly this book definitely has a stand alone feel to it, which is entirely deliberate on the authors part. However I do think the fact that I had some knowledge of Cade's background helped and the reason he finds himself in a certain situation is all the better having already been privy to his story.

However I do think the fact that I had some knowledge of Cade's background helped and the reason he finds himself in a certain situation is all the better having already been privy to his story. The romance element of this book also took a back seat for a large portion of the book and I was actually beginning to wonder if there was to be any romance at all, but in all honesty a lot of the book was about Cade and the truly evil psychopath, Fernando Villalobos. This guy was truly sickening and unreadable for the most part. He actually reminded me in so many ways of Christoph Waltz's socipathic character in the film, Inglorious [email protected]@rds. When the romance part of the book did finally happen, boy did it happen. Seriously Cade has got some serious moves girls and definitely gives Zeth and Rebel a run for their money. This book was written entirely in Cade's point of view so I wasn't able to get inside Natalia's head. It was hard to understand what made her tic, apart from Cade of course. What I do know is that she was perfect for him and I really do hope we get something from her perspective in any future books. Overall I really enjoyed this book despite the lack of romance for a large portion and whilst this hasn't been my favourite of Callie's books, I can honestly say the lady has a talent for writing incredibly hot sex scenes and that this book should have come with a warning with one scene in particular and that is all I'm going to say about that.

Cade Preston is on a mission to find what was taken from him seven years ago, and he won’t stop until he finds it or dies. I couldn’t wait for this story from Callie Hart. She left me screaming in parts of Bloods and Roses and Dead Man’s Ink series. It’s filled with my favorite things, men suspense, and death. I read this story in four hours, and I must say it was worth the anticipation I felt when it was announced. Most of story takes place in Eucador, and within each descriptive word, I was taken there. (Never been out of the U.S.) Cade, ex-military Vice Pres. of a MC.← It says enough. He’s determined to find his sister, instead he finds someone’s daughter. He can barely look, and definitely not touch Natalia Villalobos. He’ll find himself blind, and unable to feel anything, literally. Fernando is Natalia’s father; he’s her protector amongst other things. Something doesn’t sit well with Cade after he finds out some family secrets. In his search to find his sister Lauren, he finds out about tragic events which sends Cade on a… Yeah, about that… Spoiler Alert! Or lack there of, I don’t do spoilers. I NEED for you to pick up VICE, and I dare you to try and put it down. I challenge you. (points finger) Beat my four-hour time, with household chores.

She isn't "morning-sunrise" kind of beautiful. She's "out-of-control-burn-your-fucking-house-down-forest-fire" kind of beautiful. As ever, Hart delivers a dark, gritty read with just enough sex to complement the darkness and characters. This was probably one of her most original storylines, with enough depth and strings to the rest of the world to feel fully-fledged (and, frankly, fucking dangerous and bat-shit crazy). These stories, and this world, keep me entertained and occupied for hours at a time, and it remains a top favourite. "It's gonna be intense, and it might make you nervous, but it'll never be more than I think you can handle. And I will never hurt you. Do you trust me enough to hand yourself over to me?" Where I felt this book was a little disappointing was actually due to Cade feeling like more of a generic character this time. Zeth and Rebel are both gorgeously characterised, easily recognisable, but Cade faded a little into the background for me - apart from during the super hot sex scenes, which were right up my street, even if not so prominent as in Hart's other releases. Regardless, it was still super-fun, a bit grittier than Hart's other work (and that's saying something!) and wonderful to finally be able to explore Cade's character and get to the bottom of this plotline.
