Torrid (Sordid #2) by Nikki Sloane

Nikki Sloane can write. Now before I do my review, just let say, that this is nothing like Sordid, which isn’t a bad thing. For some, it may even be a good thing. While I loved Sordid, and it’s questionable morals, some didn’t. Which is understandable.

So if your steering clear due to the first, no worries, this one is dark, but not dubious consent dark.

I genuinely liked Oksana, while she was in over her head, she still held her own.

“I might not outsmart the devil, but I was willing to deal with him.”

Everyone has a agenda, including Oksana. She is betraying everyone while trying to make an ally, and keep herself alive.

It’s tricky, and a satisfying plot.

Vasilije is a great anti-hero, he’s cold, ruthless, and bit selfish, but he also has some redeeming qualities, which makes for a believable romance.

It was sexy and suspenseful.

Why 4 stars? It was a bit repetitive at times.
