MY REVIEW: An intense take on the Sleeping Beauty fairytale with compelling characters. Logan and Vera connect on the dark web looking for relief for their shared sexual deviance. Logan wants a woman in his grasp and at his will. He loves the idea of a sleeping woman at his mercy. Likewise, Vera dreams of a man watching her sleep and taking her when she’s at her weakest. It’s a slow burn with some interesting sexual play and a hot connection when they finally realize their shared fantasy. Sizzling chemistry! The two have a shared past with mafia-esque families, a contract marriage and lots of evil doings. This was not my favorite by this author. It was like I was missing part of the story or this was a continuation of another story. I didn’t really feel the connection between Logan and Vera until late in the story. There’s a lot of drama and the threat of danger without much real action until toward the end. I loved Logan’s group of hunky friends willing to help in his mission to keep Vera safe and out of the hands of his father. The real evil was a surprise twist and an OMG moment for Vera. Good ending with the baddies getting their due and the lovers walking away with the kingdom.

My sleeping beauty doesn’t realize just how dangerous I am.

Until I’m a man obsessed.
I feel his gaze on me, watching while I sleep.
He pushes me away in the light, but in the dark, he comes to me like a moth to a flame.
