Transcending Darkness Review

 Transcending Darkness is a book that takes you to the darker side of life and hooks you from the beginning. The title is so fitting because this book is such a dark book, but it is all about fighting to get out of that darkness. Our heroine (Juliette) is in debt to a loan shark because of her father, and your heart breaks for how hard she is working to pay off the debt. It is because of that loan that she meets the hero (Killian). Their story isn't an easy one, but it is a compelling one. The phrase Dark and Twisty is the perfect description for how I felt while reading this book. I had trouble putting this book down, and it's length wreaked havoc on my sleeping schedule. There were a few places I thought the book was wrapping up, only to look down at my Kindle and see that I wasn't close to the end. After completing Transcending Darkness, the story stayed with me. I give it a solid 4.5 stars and am looking forward to more from Airicka Phoenix.


One: Sign the contract.

Juliette Romero had a debt to pay, a debt that wasn’t even hers. But it was the only way to keep her family safe and all she had to do was sell her body and soul to the devil.

Killian McClary wasn’t called the Scarlet Wolf for nothing. He’d been the head of the McClary Organization since he was fifteen and had built a reputation for being a ruthless son of a bitch when it came to running the city’s underbelly, not to mention merciless when it came to punishing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. Only results. Juliette, with her shy smiles and hot little body was a weakness unlike any other and yet he was powerless to resist one more taste of her sweet flesh.

Two: Become his for a year.

When given the choice between her life or her body, what could Juliette possibly do, but submit to a man whose very name invoked fear in the hearts of others? She just never anticipated falling for his dark, hungry eyes and clever hands, or the way the beast in him made her feel oddly safe and cherished.

But what will happen when Killian’s dark past finally catches up to him and threatens the woman he can no longer imagine himself without? What will happen when both sides find themselves caught in a web of passion, lies and broken promises? Can Juliette tame the wolf or will her love for him devour them both?

Three: Don’t fall in love.

Boundaries will be crossed, loyalties will be tested and lives will be changed forever.
