Blurb: When Lawson, Washington’s biggest kingpin, receives a call from his enemy claiming they kidnapped his woman, he wants to laugh in their faces. Until he hears Cleo’s voice for the first time and quickly realizes they’re right. She will be his. Now he’ll do everything in his power to get her back and keep her. Forever.
Cleo knows the streets and gangs. Her time with both taught her how to take care of herself. Lessons she’ll need when she’s kidnapped. But when Lawson charges in and saves her, vowing to protect her at all costs, she realizes having someone to share a life with is what she’s been missing.
Unfortunately, Lawson’s position comes with no shortage of enemies. Can he and his new Queen survive the dark perils that lay ahead of them?
Warning: Sweet, sexy and safe read! Happily ever after guaranteed! This author writes what she likes to read. That means there will be instalove, OTT Heroes, and, brace yourselves, virgin characters at times. If none of those float your boat, you might want to find another book. If they do, you’re in the right place..
May be spoilers:
Dark Souls is the 1st in the Crime Kings series. It has 18 chapters and 2 epilogues and is about Lawson and Cleo.
Lawson is one of the Crime Kings and he’s been celibate for many years. She’s a virgin and she doesn’t live on the right side of the law either.
They meet when someone kidnaps her thinking she’s Lawson’s woman. It becomes true when he hears her voice.
When they meet, they both fall hard and fast. Everything moves super fast as they are both all in from the beginning.
They are separated for 2 months, but it was because she was kidnapped, not because they wanted to be.
I love how much he loves her. You can definitely feel the emotions in this one. I loved it. Such a great read. Lots of action, which I loved. Steamy in some places. No ow/om drama at all, no cheating, only separation is when she is kidnapped. Great story.
Epilogue is 2 months out, then 10 years later. They are happily married with 2 kids.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
