Synopsis:

Yasmeen Michaels’ first hours of life were spent nestled in a cloud of dirty blankets on the front stoop of an orphanage in the Bronx. Even though rejection and loneliness peppered her life, she still fought hard enough to step out of her past a free, independent woman with a bright future ahead of her. Darkness descends when a shocking ripple in the organized crime world sends a grieving Romanian mobster back into her life. Yasmeen wakes to find herself in a centuries-old castle in Romania; claimed not as Lucian Fane’s lover…but as his pet.Lucian Fane is at ease in his place of power. He unapologetically lords over his business empire right alongside his criminal one. But when tragedy dares to cross his threshold, Lucian is sent into a tailspin and soon finds himself toeing the line between sanity and freedom. With his conscience gone, and in a bid to save his city from his wrath, he plucks an exquisite distraction from her world and tucks her away in his. Only then does he allow his demons free reign. Even as Yasmeen once more finds herself fighting to hold onto her self-worth, the draw towards the darkness soon becomes too strong to resist. Will she be able to hold tight to her new owner as he freely drifts beyond her reach? Or will Lucian surface long enough to realize he’s pushing his precious pet too far to allow for forgiveness?

  **ATTN: GRIEVOUS can be read as a STANDALONE. This book is the first part of Lucian and Yasmeen’s story. It DOES NOT have a HEA. The completion of their story will come in book #7 in the Wanted Men series, scheduled for release in 2017.

MY REVIEW.

Yasmeen Michaels is attending a funeral.  She is there to offer comfort to the murdered man's brother. A man she had a one night stand with two years before. Little does she know she will not be going home.
Lucien Fane is a disgustingly rich and dangerous man. With an obsession for Yasmeen.  He needs to lose himself in her to escape his pain. If he doesn´t the body count could be huge.
This is part of a series that needs to be read in order. Although, timeline wise this one is taking place at the same time as the previous book. Our hero is a violent mobster with a terrible possessive streak. He always gets what he wants.  Our heroine was brought up in care and has never had anyone to love. She tries to fight her need, because there is no way Lucien is capable of feeling love.

This is strictly an adult read, with lots of sex where our heroine is NOT being treated well. How our author gets us to feel sorry for such a BAD man I don´t know ,but she does.  Keep a box of tissues handy. I was bawling lots of times. A very emotional story. I need to read the next book.
