Victor Cordero is the devil.
Cruel. Sadistic. Heartless.
Sofía Montero is an angel.
Beautiful. Sweet. Intoxicating.
My father stole from him, but papa was stupid.
He got caught, and now I’m in trouble.
She’s my payment. My plaything.
Too innocent for my games, but it doesn’t stop me.
The man I’ve hated all my life has come for me.
His threats are meant to break me, but I’m stronger than I look.
She spits her hate at me, but she revels in our game.
Her strength makes me want to see her break.
I’m merely a plaything for the devil himself.
Owned by the most dangerous man in Colombia.
I promised to release her once she’s paid her dues.
But you should never make a deal with the devil.
I will make him feel.
And when that day comes, he’ll break for me.
This book pulled me in right from the start and I didn't put this down until I finished, and I thought this was one great, twisted story.
Victor Cordero is not a man to suffer fools gladly, his father taught him from an early age how to rule and be able to maintain that healthy fear and respect from those he rules over. To cross Victor is to sign your own death certificate, and it doesn't matter how one is connected to Victor, if you go against him, you pay the ultimate price, a lesson Hector Montero learned early in the book
Loved the dichotomy between Victor and Sofía, especially since she's pretty much hated Victor and everything he does since she was a child. Despite the fact that Victor abhors any sort of emotional feelings (and perhaps a conscience), the interactions between he and Sofía are always set on a nuclear level. The twists sprinkled throughout the story kept it engaging and I couldn't wait to see how things would finally resolve for these two.
“Victor takes King of a$$holes to a whole new dark and dirty level. I am not gonna lie I didn't feel like I was gonna care for him. Fyi I freaking love him!!!” - Heather (Red Hatter Book Blog)

“It felt real and gritty and not always happy and nice which is appropriate for the world of the cartel.” – ilikebooksbest.com
