About this deal

Just because one of the character is named Persephone and throwing Hades and Persephone randomly into some sentences, doesn't make it a retelling, just saying. I don't know if I'll pick the next book up in this series, because I just know I'll kick Sam woman-hating Brennan out of the window. As current as it is, this book also gives off a decadent historical fairy tale vibe, while also reminding me of the books that first got me reading romance, with fast friendships both male and female, and found families.

But then the next day when she is over at Andrew’s house for his kids she goes and tells him that she and Cillian aren’t doing well. Sam is giving me the psychopathic killer vibes that I love, but Aisling pining for him for 8+ years while he blatantly ignores her at every turn? There was a depth to both of these characters that I most certainly did not expect before diving into the book.She is brave and soft, a true goddess of spring and wraith to match her tortured Hades in their underground kingdom. L.J Shen just so you know this the 2nd male lead you have created with whom I fell solely because of his intelligence and most importantly his cunningness. Ever since Vicious and let's be real it's the book that kickstarted LJ career, she tried to recreate another Vicious with every of her asshole alpha heroes, but most of the time she failed until Cillian Fitzpatrick came along. There were a lot of excellent moments: her standing up to him, all the while being the softness and light he never knew he craved; him having a garden inspired by her, making a cloud for her, etc. An explosion of unrequited love, clashing personalities, destructive secrets, and raw power meant to destroy for all others.

If there’s one thing the betas/arc readers were right about, it was that Cillian is worse than Vicious, Troy, Célian, and Wolfe combined—but not in a good way.So much so, that I was toying with the idea of taking a local side piece after this was all done and dealt with. Cillian Fitzpatrick the most eligible bachelor in America was a cold and calculating business man which stemmed over into his life.

J. Shen's latest releases, I went into The Villain with the lowest of expecatations and maybe that's why this turned out better than I expected. Cillian, *sigh*, I went from hate to love with him through the whole story, he's worse than Vicious, Troy and Celian combined, he dethroned to all them, so cold, so cruel, so ruthless, but as the story progresses, we see layers and layers in his personality, and as the chapters go by, my feelings changed, and I fell in love with him. Because she implies that Cillian's personality is because has Tourette and that's just plain disrespectful to people who actually have this.

Where Hunter was a bit more on the humorous side, Kill's book is a much more serious, mature novel, full of dark themes and deep wells of emotion. it was a bit predictable, but if you enjoyed Vicious or Angry God i don't see any reason why you wouldn't enjoy this. And if you need even stronger reason to read this gem, read it for CILLAIN FITZPATRICK, my Hades, my poisonous king who stole my heart, shattered it and mend it all together, leaving me breathless. J. Shen has a delivered a novel that exemplifies that love is a transformative and beautiful part of life, even if the process to get there is fraught with turmoil. As their was this point where he did loose it when Persephone wasn’t letting him have sex with her and he went to his secret room.

They form a marriage contract where Cillian promised to help her out with her debt and all she needs to do is play the role of a dutiful wife and have his babies. And ugh, I am so soft for heroines who are good with children/animals (it’s because I believe they have good intuition when it comes to people). The missing nine percent was due to the fact they were nauseatingly blinded by love, so you could never know for sure. The fiery heat and attraction between them is only rivaled by the unparalleled emotional depth of these characters. Con esta historia LJ alcanza nuevas alturas, es épica y cautivadora, tan intensa y perfecta, una obra maestra que me dio todas las sensaciones, ¡tengo la sonrisa más grande en mi rostro!Persy, Dios mío, es mi heroína favorita hasta la fecha, tan leal, tan valiente, tan fiera y apasionada, aunque es dulce y tiene un corazón puro, su fuerza interior lo es todo, ella lucha tanto por los que ama, muero de amor por ella ! However starting from chapter 1 (the present day) the book did hold my attention and I did enjoy Persephone and Cillian’s story at first, well majority of it. From the very beggining he's portrayed as a soulless and cruel bastard, who is so mean and disrespectful that you’ll cringe.
