Title: Vengeance Road
Author: Christine Feehan
Series: Torpedo Ink #2
Three years ago, Steele kicked the only woman he ever cared for out of his life. He never expected to see her again, even though he looked. When she shows up at the club looking for help he won’t let her walk away twice.
This was a dark second chance romance. So do not read this series if you have a problem with this. Steele, along with all the Torpedo Ink members, were brought up in a school being abused, raped, and tortured daily. They became assassins and now that they are free from the school they spend their time hunting and taking down human trafficking rings.
Steele meets Breezy three years before during one of their operations to bring down a human trafficking ring. Her father was leader of the Swords and their club was running humans, among other things. He instantly is attracted to her and they spend one year together before he makes her leave. Their relationship is very controlled. Steele is always in control and expects Breezy to follow his lead, but he does respect her wishes if she doesn’t like anything. It is very Dom/Sub in my opinion.
“That’s what you’re all about, Steele, protection of everyone around you.”
Breezy was forced into the club life and now has extreme PTSD about anything involving a club. She struggles with Steele being a part of Torpedo Ink because she believes all clubs were like the Swords. It takes a lot of time with the members of Torpedo Ink to see they are very different and actually care about one another. Breezy is very caring and nurturing which makes her the perfect person for the damaged and controlling Steele. That said, she still stood up for herself when she felt the need.
My biggest issue with this book was the conversations between Steele and Breezy. They started to feel repetitive which got to be a little boring. The pacing of the story also felt off to me. This might have been because of the repetitive conversations but I am not sure, it could just be me.
Overall, I liked Breezy and Steele’s story and look forward to reading the next one.
- Hero was tortured and raped as a child.
- Heroine was abused and raped growing up.
- Topics of pedophilia, human trafficking, and torture discussed.
- Torture and killing of others happen during scenes.
