Talia Tolstaia dreams of breaking from the heavy clutches of Bratva life. She dreams of another life, away from the stifling leash of her Russian Bratva boss father and from the brutality of her work at the Dungeon, her criminal family's underground death-match enterprise. But when she stumbles upon her family's captive, who seems more monster than man, she starts to see the man underneath: a powerful, beautiful, damaged man whose heart calls to hers.

“You are … for me. No other male. Just me. And me … for you. This is my, ‘I love you.’ These are my words from my scarred soul. They are not borrowed words, but words from my full heart, and my heart only.”
REAP is a raw, dark, gritty, mind-blowing and intense roller coaster ride!!! Only the insanely talented Tillie Cole can create such animalistic, dark heroes that make my toes curl and my spine tingle!!! I absolutely LOVED Zaal aka 221 - he was a brain washed killing machine that exuded insane strength! I loved that our heroine Talia was able to break through his layers and despite the darkness of this story, the underlying story of love, family and trust shone through. This book was addictive, with a seamless story packed with action that had me on the edge of my seat! This book needs to be read after RAZE as the hero Luka from book 1 does have a few chapters in his POV which provides a deeper understanding of the storyline. 5++ "You are..for me" stars!!!!!

Brutally Dark and Brutally Beautiful!
Tillie Cole knows how to deliver a very dark romance that will have your heart racing and your mind reeling for all the raw emotions this story will evoke! Reap is like a modern day Romeo and Juliet but with a dark, dangerous, mafia twist where family feuds and deep rooted hatred of each other lead to violence and death. Talia's and Zaal's story is not for the faint of heart. These characters face many obstacles forged from cruelty, but with their love and passion for each other, they not only survive but thrive.
Zaal, know only as 221 was kidnapped at a young age, drugged, beaten and conditioned to do only two things, obey his master and kill. Because of what he has endured for years, any memories he had of his past are buried deep in his subconscious. While he was a prisoner and forced to kill, we get to witness some of the horrors he has suffered throughout the years. When he's finally rescued, he acts almost like a rapid animal and is not safe to be around. He's stuck in his head, and has a hard time coming to terms with his new environment. However, as Talia cautiously and patiently takes care of him, he realizes he's no longer being controlled and his humanity slowly comes back a little at a time.
Reap continues the story from book one about Luka, who was known as 818. In the previous story, Luka was able to escape and seek revenge for being sold and forced to fight to the death in cage matches. However, his vengeance came at a cost and a promise, a promise he's determine to keep. Even though he escapade and has reunited with the love of his life, the years he spent in the dungeon has forever changed him. His story continues in Reap as his life crosses with the life of 221.
Reap is a dark, violent, intense story, built on the cruelty and betrayal of others, but the love and tenderness of Talia made this both brutally dark, but brutally beautiful. The emotions are real and raw, and their journey is worth every minute.
The narration was amazing! I really enjoyed both Griffin and Locke's performance and thought they did a great job bringing the story and emotions to life.
This story was well worth the time and credit! However, I will warn this story is unapologetically dark, violent but the love story is worth the journey.
