I am reviewing both book 1 and book 2 in this post because you CANNOT read one without the other. The first one has a 50 Shades-worthy ending and I didn’t even pause as I opened the second book…..
Eve tells stories that are so extreme you will not be able to put them down!
Description for the 2 books:
Tarago Jakobus was 6’4”, intelligent, arrogant, and extremely wealthy with a Midas touch. He was also openly racist, politically incorrect and a chauvinistic pig who told offensive jokes.
He loved to party and was used to women vying for his attention. So when his eyes fell on Tanin, he expected her to just melt into his arms and be grateful that he even looked her way.
To his utter surprise, she was totally unimpressed with his wealth, thought he was an uneducated buffoon and publicly rejected him. Of course, he was shocked and humiliated by her response.
But no woman had ever turned Tarago down before, and he found her fascinating. He became obsessed with her and decided to win her over his way – destroy all that is precious to her, so that she would have no choice but to need him. If that didn’t work, he’d switch to plan ‘B’ – take away her freedom and throw her ass in jail.
And being the absolute bastard that he was, he did.
Wow is about all I could utter when I finished these two books! That is a great wow, by the way! Eve Rabi has a very extreme way of telling a story that compels you to read EVERY LAST WORD.
In book 1 Tanin works for her rude, crude, racist jerk of a boss as a waitress in his restaurant. He is known to pick a waitress for drinks each evening, which sometimes lasts for a few days…. One night he decides he wants Tanin, but Tanin is dating the love of her life and not interested in the big brute’s awful ways. She turns him down (rather politely, I thought), and he says essentially “No problem!” and chooses another girl. Tanin is relieved, but unfortunately that is short-lived….
The antics of the characters in this book will have you cracking up, and the glimpses into the real people behind the public persona (*cough* Tarago *cough*) will have you turning page after page for what happens next.
At the end of book 1 I was shouting “NOOOOO!” and scrambling to get into book 2. Trust me when I tell you to have it bought and ready……
When all is said and done I would recommend this set of books to one and all. The adrenaline rush craziness is just so much fun to read! I can’t wait to read more by Eve Rabi (in fact, you will soon also see my review of YOU WILL PAY! )
