~ Synopsis ~

I captured the guilty.
Locked them inside our prison.
Tortured their bodies and abused their minds.
I had murdered hundreds.
Never recognized one.
Until her face.
Until that scream.
I was hired to take her life.
But first, I had to figure out how she ruined mine.

~ Maria’s Review ~

WOW…what a total mindf***! This book was amazing. It was gritty, dark and disturbing. It had me tearing through the pages. I couldn’t read fast enough. The whole time I’m reading, I’m trying to figure out what the hell is going on. I’m looking for the connections. My pulse raced. Just when I thought I had figured it out, the author threw a curve that made me doubt or rethink my theories.

Animal is a spin-off from the awesome novel, Prisoned. However, Animal can be read as a standalone and Prisoned can be read after because the characters are completely different. Because if you like Animal, which you will, you’re going to want to read Prisoned.

This is not your average dark romance. It is a complete psychological thriller. You don’t really know who the hero and heroine are, you just have to follow the story and your gut, until the very end. I can tell you, don’t blink because you might miss something. You will either end with “I KNEW IT!” or “OMG are you kidding me?!” There are many moments when I was like wait a minute…and actually went back to reread a section. I LOVE books like this. Animal kept my attention from cover to cover. The characters were interesting and complex. the story was told in alternating POV and past/present. Which at times, was frustrating because I would just be getting somewhere and bam! the author switches time on me. But, it worked to further the plot, build suspense, and keep me on my toes.

I love the dynamics between our hero and heroine. They had chemistry and an inexplicable connection. Their interaction was complicated and intense. I loved Beard’s character. He was not black and white, not good or evil but a mix of the two.  I’m not going to say much more because I don’t want to give anything away. I went into this book blind. I only knew that it was a Prisoned spin off and I loved Prisoned. Thus, I was all over Animal. I didn’t even read the blurb.

This book is raw and twisted. The characters are intricately layered. It is HOT. There are unexpected twists and surprises right to the end. That ending?! Blew my mind. I want a part 2 or a novella because I need more. It was that good.
