Emily Donovan didn't know love, she didn't know gentle and her future wasn't hers to own. Because HE owned her. There is only so much one soul can take before it is broken beyond repair and she had reached that milestone long ago.

Braiden Montgomery had secrets, secrets that would see a special place in hell reserved just for him. He was trying to make amends, trying to find his own form of redemption when a waif of a girl with jet black hair and pale blue eyes seized his heart. 

Emily's soul had been tortured by men like Braiden, so trusting the dark haired Dom would be one of the most difficult things she would ever do. For a man with skills like Braiden, keeping 'Em' safe would be a piece of cake. Bringing her frozen heart back to life might just prove impossible though.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I really enjoy reading anything that Kirsty writes. She doesn’t disappoint.

Tortured Soul was no exception. A darker read, with a villain and his minions who are pure evil.

Braiden has his own sins to deal with having been raised by his stepfather, the Russian, Alexander Toropov who is on the FBI’s most wanted list. Braiden was molded to be a killer, an assassin.

I had been groomed to be his right hand man. At thirteen I had made my first kill and by fourteen, I was fucking. At fifteen I spoke fluent Russian and Spanish and could drive a car better than most twice my age. At seventeen I had mastered most weapons and could plan and strategize the perfect assassination. At twenty-one my world seemed to collapse in on itself and I began questioning my life.

He has left that life behind him and is in partnership with his cousin Dillon at Montgomery Securities in Claymont.

I really liked how Braiden was written. Braiden is a most delicious book boyfriend who is patient , caring and just growl worthy.

“Settle down, Malen’kaya, I’ve got you now.”

Emily left home with a dream at a young age and fell into a nightmare. Braiden and his team have come to the rescue.

Emily needs to be brought back from the life she had brutally been conditioned to. Listening to Emily’s inner monologue you quickly realize how conditioned her mind was to slavery and servitude. How dehumanized she had been forced to become.

There was no Emily left in Emily. Tough love had to be dealt.

“I understand sin, Em, I understand what it feels like to be beyond redemption.”

Jax, Charlie, Rebecca, Ella, Mercy, Eli... all have roles to play in this book. I do love having them pop into the storyline. Jax and Charlie are just cool lads. They love their women and they have big hearts.

We are introduced to new characters and I think Bomber is quite a lad. The sexual banter between him and Gabriella reminded me of PJ and Cole in Maya Banks KGI series. I’m hoping we get a book on Gabbie and Bomber.

Larz is such a gentleman, but I wouldn’t want to fight him. He sounds like a really cool guy that has sacrificed a lot because of his dedication to the job.

I am rather intrigued about Samuel and his rather busty, lusty wench of a woman he has in tow. I’m not sure if I like her. I’m not sure I am supposed to?

Kirsty has left us with ample characters that she can write a book about in this series and I for one will read them.

I saw a certain movie a while back and there was a line in it that I just have wanted to hear repeated. It just sounded cool. Not sure of the copyright laws, but it was perfect for a scene in this book.

“I think we need to pull a Panama.”

“A Panama. A Panama?”

I could so hear Bomber or Braiden yelling that out. Ha!

The town of Claymont is never dull, there is always something exciting and dangerous going down, not to mention the smexi lads that reside there.

I highly recommend Mercy’s Angels series.


Kinda a spoiler, but, this is too funny.
