Thirty Days of Hate (Thirty Days #3)

Thirty Days of Hate

Thirty Days of Hate by Ginger Talbot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Book 3 status: I still don’t like Sergei

I’ve downgraded my negative feelings toward Sergei from hate to mere dislike. Perhaps loathe. I still think he is completely unsuitable as a partner. He doesn’t need a wife and family. He needs a psychiatrist. This is not the way I generally feel after reading a romance, dark or otherwise.
That said, as with books 1 and 2, the writing itself is good. The story is good. There is suspense. Intrigue. I felt the need to continue to books 2 and 3 even though I flat out hated Sergei during the first two books. That’s saying something.
I recommend this book IF you are tolerant of dark content, and you are okay with books featuring a relationship dynamic where one person causes considerable physical pain to the other (even through their begging for it to stop). If you read and liked Captive in the Dark (another one where I wanted the “hero” to fall into a wood chipper), then you will probably like this series. It IS good writing. It is just a relationship dynamic that I don’t personally understand, and frankly makes me angry. That does not mean it isn’t a “good” book, and for that reason I still gave four stars even though my HEA for Willow would have been quite different (and sans Sergei, who would have fallen into a wood chipper).

Secrets and lies tore us apart. Can love keep us together? 

SERGEI 
Willow thought she got away from me, but she was wrong from the beginning, wrong about everything. I find her trying to take down a human trafficking ring, unsure whether I’m there to help her, or drag her down. But from now on, Willow doesn’t have a choice. She will be my wife. She will submit. She will play her role. 30 days until she becomes mine forever. 30 days for her final chance to run. 30 days, and Willow will be my wife, mine until the end of days. 

WILLOW 
Sergei wants me to trust him. He orders me to marry him, and he’s giving me no choice in the matter. But our enemies are circling in, enemies we didn’t even know we had. Evil is closer than ever, so close I can feel its hot breath on the back of my neck. He’s hunting me, and there’s nowhere left to run. I’ll have to face the devil himself – and I have a feeling he will make me pay in blood. I don’t know who to trust. Is Sergei the perfect liar… or the perfect lover? 

This is a dark romance, complete with trigger warnings! Part 3 of a 3 part series. The complete series is now available. No cheating, HEA guaranteed.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
