~*★BLOG TOUR w/Review★*~ Transcending Darkness by Airicka Phoenix


Title: Transcending Darkness
Author: Airicka Phoenix
Release Date: August 31, 2015

Synopsis

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 punish-ing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. On-ly 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 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 Juli-ette 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.

Excerpt

Across from him, what little color had resided in the girl face bleached to nothing so all that stood out was her eyes, wide and glossy with terror. They stared at Killian as though he were the devil reincarnated. She stood rigid against Arlo, her slight frame trembling hard enough to make Killian wince.
“This is Juliette,” Arlo went on.  “Juliette here owes me a favor and I would consider it paid in full if she were to help you relax.”
Juliette seemed to still before his eyes. Killian could see something churning behind her eyes, a desperate sort of realization that parted her lips in a gasp.
Behind her, Arlo smirked. “Do we have a deal?”

Genre: Contemporary Romance. Suspense, Adult Fiction

Rating:     
Reviewer: Diane
I've received this fabulous 5 star ARC from Airicka Phoenix in exchange for an honest review. 

 It was an overall addictive story.  From the first page to the very last one.  It's somewhat dark, suspenseful romance kind of story.  It was not too much where I would cringe while reading.  It's sweet, sexy, action packed loving book.  

I really enjoyed this read because it did not dwell on useless descriptions.  It's a lengthy novel, usually they drag a lot.  But Airicka did a great job while writing this novel.  The time framing was just right.  Never a dull moment.  Each page turning was always an unexpected surprise.

It's about Juliette who works 3 jobs in order to make ends meet and support her younger sister.  She's trying very hard to keep her head above water.  She is a very strong loving women.  She is very prideful.  Her pride is what made me like this character very much.  She works hard for what she has. And doesn't take hands out.  She also has to pay off her late fathers debts to a shady street criminal.

This is where she meets Killian.  At first I wasn't too sure about him.  He was portrayed as a rich criminal.  He is a feared, tough powerful rich man who as a hand running the city.  Juliette chooses the lesser of two evils.  He offers her a contract to stay with him for a year.  She needs to protect her sister and get away from the man she owes money to.  She accepts to stay with Killian for a year.  She's still her own person, but falls in love with him.

Killian way of life puts Juliette at a great risk.  By terminating the contract in order to protect her, she is met with danger and fear like no other she has known before.  Will he save her life and her soul in time?

This is not a story for the faint of heart.  It deals with subjects that can be hard to read.  It is well written, great plot, kept me focused and wanting anxiously to turn every page.  The author creates great chemistry between Juliette and Killian.  This is a standalone with an HEA.  I highly recommend this book.  I also recommend her previous books also. This is my second ARC from this author and she never disappoints.  Can't wait to read more from this author.
