Michael Kage Santori has just inherited a thriving hotel and millions of dollars. He’s poised to become an MMA champion. Things couldn’t be better between him and his college boy lover, Jamie Atwood— especially in the bedroom, where Jamie is more than eager to let Kage take out his aggressions on him.
Kage seems to have it all, but success and happiness have come at a steep price. After all of the childhood trauma he endured at the hands of his controlling uncle, Peter Santori, it’s a miracle Kage has any shred of sanity left. And now, because of him, Jamie is a murderer.
More than anything, Kage wants to be good. He wants the be the kind of man who is worthy of Jamie’s love, but fate has other ideas. His uncle’s legacy has a stranglehold on him, and it keeps dragging him further and further down a rabbit hole from which there seems no escape. Worst of all… Kage knows he’s going to pull Jamie down right along with him, and he would rather die than let that happen.

Michael Santori aka Kage has just inherited the empire of his uncle, Peter Santori. Kage has to face some new responsibilities with the hotels and other business, and he has his relationship with Jamie, the love of his life. After everything they’ve been through together, now they have to face a new threat, one who can destroy them and what they have together.


I loved this book. I was so happy to have the guys back.
This book starts right after the end of Kage Unmasked, after Peter’s death, we follow the aftermath of his death and how Kage and Jamie deal with it. They are still amazing together, crazy in love and completely devoted to each other. But Kage has a goal in his life, protect Jamie from the world and the danger and to make his life full of happiness, and because of that, he decides not to tell Jamie everything, every doubt, every threat. Yeah, yeah, that’s stupid, and dear Jamie will have to teach him this, but for now, Kage thinks he does the right thing, and I can’t blame him for that.

The book is divided into two part, in my opinion, the first part is all about Jamie and Kage, and the second is about a third character. Nooooo, I won’t tell who he is, just read the book, and you’ll meet him. All I can say is that Maris Black punched me in the gut with this part. I didn’t see that coming at all. First I didn’t see that she would dare to introduce a new character and that I would love him…

What’s wrong with me? I’m not supposed to love anyone but Kage and Jamie, but she made me feel things for this new character.
The plot and the story are super good, well built, and captivating. The writing is fluid, fresh and dynamic.

Well done, dear author, you really got me with this one.
