I pray to be forgiven for my sins, but the prayers of someone like me won’t dare breach the edge of heaven.
Sins. All sins are equal in the eyes of God, but I’m not God. Some sins are far more wretched than others. And those sinners should pay, Evelyn. One sinner made me his sin, and I can’t let men like him live. They must face their judgement, Evelyn. I want to kill them. Every. Last. One.
Ezra James is no different, and I wanted to kill him, I needed to kill him, I’m was going to kill him…And then I found myself fascinated by him, obsessed and possessed in the most reverent of ways. I became his sinner, and he became my sin, but the wages of sin is death, so I must kill him.
The son of a whore, raised by gangsters, moulded into a key player in a corrupt world ruled by money and completely without morals.
This world can break a person. I’ve seen it time and time again. I never gave a shit, until the night I watched a man drop dead at the feet of a woman so broken she made even me feel whole. My little killer called to my depravity and everything in me demanded that I take her, possess her, own her.
Some monsters hide behind the faces of angels, where others stand in plain sight.
Damned. Broken. Irredeemable.
Through blood, absolution shall be found.
REVIEW BY ALEXA
I usually don’t like a book written more than one author, because united the idea from two heads isn’t easy and there will be different writing style. But after I read the phenomenal Wrong series, I always hope a new book from this duo. Even they’re came from dark romance genre, this story has darker aura, taboo theme and of course, the characters are more twisted than Wrong series.
The beautiful Evie was raised by crazy fanatic religious community. She was fed with facts that she is a sin and a root of man’s biggest temptation, so she must cleanse herself with blood and punishment. She has been whipped since young and already broken mentally. When she’s mature enough, Evie and her sister Hannah think they have holy mission to clean the world from sinners especially man. They succeeded eliminate men until Hannah murdered and Evie met Ezra.
Even though both of them are anti-hero and glorious bastard, Ezra is far different from Jude Pearson (from Wrong series). Ezra is colder, vicious and untouchable. He’s a high class pimp and praised by his customer. Ezra’s main job is to prepare the girls to be ready for his customers with whip and hardcore BDSM stuff. Even Evie could fill the requirement, the problem she’s too strong and dangerous.
The interaction between Evie and Ezra was confusing and unstable at first. Evie was confused between finding sinner and savior. She wants to kill the man but she also didn’t want to share him with anybody. The tension from this story could feel in the 60% from start. The internal conflict was circling around with slow paced and tug-of-war for Evie to achieve Ezra’s heart. The rest was full of gore action, human slavery and mafia business by Ezra and his competitor. I liked the consistency between Evie and Ezra until the end. The mysterious villain has big surprise at the end of 20%, but the conclusion from conflict was too rushed and anti-climax. Personally my favorite funny scene is at chapter 30 that could cooling down all the tense from the previous chapter.
So far, there is no love story in this book because both of them are clearly didn’t know what love is. The contradiction between innocent and cruelty, misguided religion versus super-hot BDSM without label outside your comfort zone. Absolution is clearly not your type of story for fainted heart. Make sure you already read the warning from the authors before read it any further.
