Vasha: Being groomed for the man who purchased me is the only life I’ve known. But I want more. I want freedom! My husband-to-be is a cruel, vicious man. I dread the day he claims me. When my bodyguard and friend, Anatoly, arranges my passage to America — as a mail order bride — I hope it means things will be better. I never counted on my husband being so handsome, or so tender. Nor did I know that passion between a man and a woman could be so consuming! He leaves my knees weak and makes my heart race. There’s just one problem… He doesn’t know we’re married! I don’t know how it happened, or how to fix things, but it’s clear Slider is angry. Leaving is the only thing I know to do, but it is also the hardest decision I have ever made.
Slider: I’m not even thirty yet, but I’m already tired of the bullshit that comes with easy women. Maybe seeing my Pres settle down gave me a new perspective. Having the same woman in my bed every night is starting to sound more and more appealing. Or guy. I’m not picky. Love is love. What I didn’t count on was my ex-lover deciding to “help” me with my problem. When he left a naked woman in my bed, I was pissed… until I realized she was in trouble. She needs me, and maybe I need her, too. I always did have a hero complex, but it only takes a few minutes of knowing her before I want to slay her dragons, keep her safe, and show her that not all men are evil.
I didn’t count on her being my wife. F**cking Surge! Always putting his nose where he shouldn’t. When she runs, I realize I seriously screwed up and I have to get her back.
May be spoilers:
Slider is the 3rd in the Hades Abyss MC series. It has 8 chapters with an epilogue and is about Slider and Vasha.
I do recommend reading in order as we see previous characters and Slider has been in each story, plus some of the storyline is continuous.
Vasha has been groomed to be sold. She desperately does not want the man she is supposed to marry so her friend helps her escape by being a mail order bride.
Slider is bisexual, but we don’t see him with anyone else. There is a short kiss with Surge at the beginning, but it was more of a peck than anything.
Surge buys Vasha for Slider as a gift because he knows Slider is ready to settle down. He just doesn’t tell him that they are married already, so Slider is pissed when he finds out.
Slider and Vasha do click right away.
I do love that he wanted to claim her before he knew that they were married.
She’s a virgin and they do have sex right away.
She leaves thinking Slider doesn’t want her, but only until he finds her.
I loved seeing previous characters and what they are up to.
Great read, I thought.
Slider was awesome. Had a couple of moments, but he made up for them.
Kept my attention from start to finish. Reads fast as it flows very nicely.
Lots of steam, lots of violence.
No cheating between mcs, no real ow/om drama-just a blip from ow, but over quickly, few hours separation until he found her.
Epilogue is 6 months out. Do wish it was further out, but still a great read. They are married and pregnant at the end.
I gave it ❤❤❤½. Thanks for reading.
