Review: Transcending Darkness by Airicka Phoenix

One: Sign the contract. 

Juliette Romero had a debt to pay, a debt that wasn’t even hers. But it was the only way to keep her family safe and all she had to do was sell her body and soul to the devil. 

Killian McClary wasn’t called the Scarlet Wolf for nothing. He’d been the head of the McClary Organization since he was fifteen and had built a reputation for being a ruthless son of a bitch when it came to running the city’s underbelly, not to mention merciless when it came to punishing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. Only results. Juliette, with her shy smiles and hot little body was a weakness unlike any other and yet he was powerless to resist one more taste of her sweet flesh. 

Two: Become his for a year. 

When given the choice between her life or her body, what could Juliette possibly do, but submit to a man whose very name invoked fear in the hearts of others? She just never anticipated falling for his dark, hungry eyes and clever hands, or the way the beast in him made her feel oddly safe and cherished. 

But what will happen when Killian’s dark past finally catches up to him and threatens the woman he can no longer imagine himself without? What will happen when both sides find themselves caught in a web of passion, lies and broken promises? Can Juliette tame the wolf or will her love for him devour them both? 

Three: Don’t fall in love. 

Boundaries will be crossed, loyalties will be tested and lives will be changed forever. 

This book is NA and intended for a mature audience. 

Wow. I really don't even know where to start with this book. I have read a lot of books this summer and this book, by far, is number one on my list. I loved it so much that I pulled an all-nighter just to finish it. I love these kinds of books anyways, but this one is the best of all. If you like mafia-like underworld\crime books, you'll love this. 
Juliette Romero is basically living in hell. When her Father died, it was up to her to pay back his debts, A debt she's been paying for seven plus years while working 3 jobs and basically not sleeping at all. After not being able to come up with the money that month, Juliette is forced to either have the money in 24 hours or Arlo (the fucker who is threatening her) takes her 16 year old sister. Juliette doesn't come up with the money and instead of handing her sister over she decides to offer something else to Arlo; her virginity. Right before she hands herself over, Killian walks in. Her hero. 
Killian never wanted to be in this business, but after his parents were brutally slaughtered when he was 16, he had no choice but to take the reins. Killian is never with the same woman twice, everyone he gets close to gets killed. From the first time he looked at Juliette, he was changed. After Arlo offered Juliette to Killian for the night, it changed him. This book was about fighting for love and sacrifices. There's not enough good things to say about this book, just trust me and read it.
