As the son of an Irish mobster, Connor O’Neil spent his boyhood hiding from the horrors of his own home. His one reprieve was a girl he knew only as Evelyn, but even she was taken away. As a man, Connor is determined to stay away from his father’s business. With Sean, participation is not a request, but a demand. The truth is, Connor might be more like the evil he’s trying to hide away from than he would like to admit.
And he’s already spent years trying to cover the scars left over from the pain.
A chance encounter puts the lost girl from his past back on his path, and he no longer has a choice but to face the darkness he’s been ignoring for years.
Evelyn. Sasha. Slave.
She doesn’t really know who she is anymore.
Or maybe she does, and she doesn’t want to tell.
She isn’t the same as she once was—now a thing to be kept and maintained, shuffled from owner to owner until it was her time to go. She only became Connor’s because he took her when he knew she wasn’t his to take.
Except she isn’t Connor’s at all …
And he can’t keep her hidden forever.

Sweet Jesus. I’m not sure I am capable to expressing all that Evelyn and Connor share in Inflict. I just know I loved experiencing their story.
It’s always interesting to me to see how an author bonds their main characters together. Will it be a relationship sprung out of lust and passion or a friendship that develops into more. Or will they be drawn together thanks to a shared tragedy. With Inflict it was a little bit of all of that and it was amazing.
Connor and Evelyn have survived a freaking seedy up bringing. The horrors and craziness they endured blew my mind. It has shaped who they are and how they deal with the various people in their lives. However, they both recognize the hurt and tortured souls in one another. It’s because of this that these two get each other on a level that no one else ever will with either one of them.
Their time together is intense and captivating. Their passion for one another will consume you whole. Even as messed up as this couple’s connection is, you’re swooning and falling in love. It’s kinda mind-blowing that a love so pure can come from a place of such utter disarray and heartache.
And if their relationship isn’t enough to entice you this book, Inflict was also filled with the unscrupulous underground world of Connor’s father, Sean. He is the head of the New Jersey’s Irish Mafia and he is shady as all hell. Soulless. His evil behavior will have you turning page after page, wondering what he is up to and how Connor will take him down.
All together, it just makes for excellent story telling and I devoured it all. Although I thought Inflict was a bit tamer than some of the other books that I’ve read in this genre, it was one of the better stories which is why I am recommending everyone check this book out.
