Publisher's Summary

The Acquisition has ruled my life, ruled my every waking moment since Sinclair Vinemont first showed up at my house offering an infernal bargain to save my father's life. Now I know the stakes. The charade is at an end, and Sinclair has far more to lose than I ever did. But this knowledge hasn't strengthened me.
Instead, each revelation breaks me down until nothing is left but my fight and my rage. As I struggle to survive, only one question remains. How far will I go to save those I love and burn the Acquisition to the ground?
Full disclosure: This book is a DARK romance with elements of BDSM, slavery, violence, and super-hot sex. It is the last of the Acquisition trilogy, no cliffhanger. If you're good with these caveats, enjoy!

Great But Very Violent

Wow. I just couldn't put this one down. This whole series has been this way. So well written I couldn't stop listening except to sleep. And even that was hard.

These characters are so well developed, complicated enough to hate them and love them at the same time. This messed up family actually sees the light somehow. And it's Stella that can save them but at the risk of her own life. How much does she have to lose for it?

Every time you think you know what's going to happen it doesn't and something beyond your comprehension happens. The Acquisition Trials are hideous and scary but to Stella they are her testaments to her strength. But seriously, how much can she handle?

I love Stella and how her story played out. There were times I wanted to take her myself and run away with her. I wanted to cry for her and cheer her on. If I could have kicked Dylan in the nuts I would have myself. What she endured for the lives of others was amazing.

Sinclair was a complicated man. Many sides to his character and it wasn't until the end that I finally liked him. I think. The roller coaster Stella rode for him but it was all for her and his family.

I was glad to learn about Rebecca and see a good natured side to her. That was important to me in the story. Her voice rounded out the need for the brothers actions.

Stephen Dexter and Robyn Verne were exceptional with the delivery of the story

This phenomenal author’s gut-wrenching last book in this dark trilogy has Stella training, preparing for and then competing in the final two chilling and nerve-wracking ‘trials’ which shocked and shook me as the barbaric twisted bloody games continued to see who would be crowned Sovereign.. and who would die. And, as Stella and Sin’s rollercoaster relationship continued to reach epic highs and heartaching lows, the twists just kept coming and coming and didn’t stop.

The pulse-pounding action, the edge of your seat tension and the nail-biting suspense bled through every well-paced riveting chapter. I held my breath at times, lost it at other points and sighed in relief when things went well for Stella and Sin. But there was still drama and angst over the months in between the bouts of bloody horrors inflicted by the twisted cruel monsters of the Sovereign ruled privileged Southern aristocracy. The crashes and lulls between Stella and Sin were driven by a fierce lust, a fiery passion, a single-minded determination and a forgiving love as they were both swept up by the relentless pressure and turmoil of the game.

It took a year to complete Stella’s contract with Sin and through these three books she didn’t break and didn’t give in to her fate.. she forged herself into a honed tool.. but she was also the glue that held a family together. The younger and middle brothers had a large part to play in this awesome awesome beast of a trilogy.. they were at the forefront, at the centre and Sin was at its head.. along with Stella. There were a variety of secondary characters, a mixed bag of good and evil, who weaved in and out of the turbulent waters to briefly calm or create waves in a sea of uncertainty. Finally, after hours of this delicious twisted torture, I could finally breathe a huge sigh of relief and bask in the light again with a HEA Epilogue that finished off a perfect listen.

Worth a credit? Well, you’ve got to like dark, you’ve got be fully prepared to be shocked with never ending twists and you’ve got to like an alpha hero with a terrible legacy on his shoulders.. and hands that would never hurt a woman.. unless, of course, she enjoyed it!! It’s erotic, it’s sinful, it’s so well narrated as Stella's (and sometimes Sin’s) PoV’s played out and YES, for me, this trilogy is VERY creditworthy.
