Jude has a tender heart. Yet he was born into a criminal empire and groomed from childhood to step into his father’s violent footsteps. To survive, he created a second personality. Ras is everything Jude isn’t—cruel, remorseless, and utterly without fear, as incapable of love as Jude is of malice.

But when Ras meets a ruthless socialite, he begins to feel a strange stirring of emotion, a brush of Jude’s passion against his own dark heart. Meanwhile, Jude finds himself with a knife in his hand, the evil in Ras’s soul bleeding into his own.

As the walls between them crumble, they could lose everything—their lovers, their family, and their hold on the dark city itself.

Coming together could break them…or make them whole.

New one review witch 2017

When I first read the synopsis for this book it was the two personalities in one person that really peaked by interest and made me want to read it.

Jude belongs to a violent crime family, which includes his dad Vance, who is the boss and his elder brother Eli. His mother stays away from the family business and takes no part in the crimes. Her attempts to advocate on behalf of her son’s is met with domestic violence from her husband.

When I first came across Ras I was a bit confused and wondered if Vance had a secret son that the rest of the family knew nothing about, until I remembered that Jude had another personality. Ras seems to just appear out of the blue.

Over all I think the book is very well written and I wanted to know how everything would plan out for the family. It is the kind of book that you could read in a short space of time, if only life didn’t get in the way. The plot did hook me and kept me wanting more.

My only issue was with the ending. I’m not fully convinced if I liked it or not, but then again, how else could the book of ended!

When she does go out, it’s probably to the library, the theater, or the non-profit where she works.

Sarah lives in a beautiful corner of western Oregon where the trees are still changing color at the end of November and the mornings are misty and mysterious. She spends her free time playing video games and catering to her cat’s every whim.
