Tormentor Mine: A Dark Romance by Anna Zaires



Goodreads Review




A new dark romance from New York Times bestseller Anna Zaires

He came to me in the night, a cruel, darkly handsome stranger from the most dangerous corners of Russia. He tormented me and destroyed me, ripping apart my world in his quest for vengeance.

Now he's back, but he’s no longer after my secrets.

The man who stars in my nightmares wants
me.




There is no beauty without ugliness, just as there’s no happiness without sorrow. We live in a world of contrasts, not absolutes.
Peter Sokolov what a Hero you are. Deadly yet kind. A beast that will lash out when he cans but will pamper you in any way that he can to keep the demons at bay. Out for vengeance and revenge. His list has nearly come to an end that is until he meets Sara and can’t seem to let go.
A fascination is born that morphs into obsession. He wants his Ptichka and the predator will give the prey more time. Irrational yet he can’t help himself.
I might not have claimed her yet, but she’s going to be mine.
Sara lost her husband in an accident he is a vegetable. One night when she comes home she is questioned about the whereabouts of her husband until the unorthodox methods make her spill all the details. I mean what’s a little waterboarding and truth serum between soon to be lovers? Doesn’t matter that Peter wants to kill Sara’s husband.
She fights it to begin with but there is no way out for her she is trapped in a cage. But with time her soul and mind start to adapt her body submitted a long time before that. Peter sets out to get what he wants.
When Sara sees me again I want it to be different. I want her to know me as something other than her assailant. – Good luck with that Peter.
And at the last vital second, he succeeds. Although Sara is clear that she wants to get rid of him.
“Fine,” I say in an attempt to regroup. “So what’s it going to take for you to leave me alone?” “A bullet to the brain or heart,” he answers, unblinking, and my stomach lurches as I realize he’s completely serious. He has no intention of walking away from me. Ever.
Although this isn’t as dark and twisted as the other series I like the direction it is going in and I hope it gets darker, grittier and more twisted as that is what I need when I read this authors books.
A book filled with duplicity, subterfuge, secrets and not all is what it seems. They both have suffered a great loss and with time find solace in one another.
I couldn’t give it 5 stars because Sara annoyed to the point where I just wanted to push her out of the way and say “Bitch please if you don’t want him then I’ll take him.” And her constant blabbing on of her tormentor, blah blah, tormentor, blah, blah got exasperating and tiresome. Other than that, this book is perfect.
I love this author’s work. Damn you Ms. Zaires a second book? Although it does make sense. So, I’m not too bummed. It only took me to the very end to figure that shite out as I was constantly wondering how Ms. Zaires was going to fit their unconventional HEA in to one book.
Ever since I read The Twist Me Trilogy I have wanted a book about Peter. And obviously just for me Ms. Zaires decided to write one or in this case a trilogy. The writing is engaging and drags you into an underworld of assassins for hire and a stalker that wants it all.
