“I cry for the man I used to know, the man I used to love…until his love killed mine.”

My name is Haley Macknight, and I’m dying inside. From the outside my life is every woman’s dream. I’m married to Jude Macknight, a sexy multimillionaire who loves me…too much.

Once upon a time, I loved him. But that love is dead. Unwilling to let me go, I’ve become his obsession. His heart is dark and damaged, and he will stop at nothing to make sure I remain in a marriage I no longer want, inside my gilded cage.

Each day I pull away from Jude, I watch him transform into a monster. Before my eyes, he becomes a man I don’t recognize, a dangerous man. He makes it clear that I belong to him, that my life is no longer my own. If I leave, he’ll kill me. But if I stay, I’ll die a slow death.

This book was well written. However, I felt that it was very rushed. I feel like the author could have added a bit more perhaps, or even drawn out some scenes so we would get a better sense of the characters. With that being said though I did enjoy the book. It is quite dark as it deals with domestic abuse and rape. Hayley- the stories heroine- meets a rich man who saves her from her past. Yet, the man who she thought was her prince charming turns out to be the evil villain. Hayley is thrust into a world that every woman dreams of when she meets Jude and because of this she thinks all her dreams are coming true. That is until Jude shows her his true colors- he’s obsessive, abusive, and keeps her away from anyone she comes in contact with. He is an evil and dark character that readers will hate with a passion. As for Hayley, readers will love her. She is not the abused woman who blames everything on herself. Instead, she runs from her demon. Does she ever make it out…alive? You’ll have to read to find out! 

Warning:This book is dark and deals with material that may be offensive to some. Read at your own risk! Also, there is a cliffhanger. This is a 3 part book series.
