I’m known as the Black Widow because the desires I hide inside are pure poison.
I was a different person once. Faith, a young wife, hoping to become a mother. My life was pleasant. Stable. It was hell. Until Killian Knight opened my eyes to a world of espionage and intrigue. He saw something in me, something I was too afraid to acknowledge. I didn’t want to be excited by the danger. Didn’t want to crave the wicked passion only he could provide. But I did want, so now I run. And I pay.

I never meant to corrupt her, but I’m not sorry. 
After all, I’m already damned.
After four years of searching and longing, I’ve finally found her. Faith, the one person in the world I breathe for. She lives beneath my skin as surely as I wear proof of our transgressions inked on my body. And like the forbidden fruit that doomed us from the beginning, our end is inevitable. We lived with no regret. We loved without inhibition. We betrayed those closest to us. We killed for that love. Now…we will burn in hell together.

Arrogant Bastard – Review

Oooh, I adored this book!

It did take me a while to get into it, but that has no reflections on my feelings about the book. Honestly, I think that was more of me being in a reading slump than anything else.

The premise of Arrogant Bastard sucked me in. I have a few other Cox books sitting in my TBR that I will definitely be reading now.

I’m not usually one for spy(ish) books, but the secrecy of everything made me dive into the pages and wonder how everything was going to turn out. This had a dangerous feel to it, and y’all know how I like my books: dark and dangerous. But I had to take this one slowly, literally one chapter at a time (in one sitting).

Cox’s writing had me wishing I could get rid of the damn slump I’m in. All I wanted was to flip the pages like I couldn’t read fast enough. I wish that was the case with this book. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it. I loved the darkness of it, I liked the characters, and I liked the plot. This is one book I could see myself re-reading just to get another feel for it. That may even raise my rating too!

Don’t these slumps just take everything out of you?! Grah!


*I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader copy.
