Author: Gemma James
Series: Condemned #3
Release Date: April 30, 2015
I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us show no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.
Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.
What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe. I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me.
NOTE TO READERS FERVENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part three of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read! Please begin with TORRENT and RAMPANT, otherwise, FERVENT might not make much sense.
Thanks to the author, I was allowed to read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book grabs you from the first few pages. Alex and Rafe have been through some dark days together and apart. This book takes them into yet another dark time in their lives. These two are tortured, all the while fighting their own personal demons. The one thing that never wavers is their love for each other. In fact, that seems to be the glue that holds their psyche from breaking completely.
This is a dark romance and is a very intense read. It is not for everyone, but if you enjoy the dark side of romance, this is an excellent series. Gemma James makes you feel like you are in the dark world right along with Alex & Rafe. You find yourself pulling for this couple and hoping that they can each work through their issues to find a way to live happily together.
This is a four part serial and each book cannot be read as a stand-alone. This installment ends with another cliffhanger, and really leaves you anxiously awaiting the final book in the series. Five stars to this dark world created by Ms. James.
