Bleeding Hearts: The Complete Duet – Bleeding Hearts #1-2 by A. Zavarelli

How far would you go to save someone you love? Would you give up your body? Your mind? Your heart?

I did and it cost me everything.

He says he owns me. And it’s true.

I’ve signed over complete control of my body and life for six months to a man I don’t know. Five years he’s been planning this. They say revenge is a dish best served cold. But my blackmailer serves it up white hot. He’s addicted to my innocence, and I’m addicted to him.

He likes to hurt me. I love to let him. He brings me to life. He sets me free. He makes my heart feel things it shouldn’t.

But he also scares me. He holds the fate of my brother’s life in his hands. A life behind bars for crimes I know he didn’t commit. My blackmailer can’t give up his revenge on my family, and I can’t be with him if he doesn’t. But I’m nothing more than a butterfly caught in his net. Do I really have a choice?



Brighton is pretty much doomed from birth.  Although she is innocent there is definitely a dark side to her and it takes Ryland to bring that dark side out.

Revenge can be a very dangerous path to take but I can understand Ryland’s need for it.  I think I would probably be after Brayden if  he had done that to me as well.  He is not a nice person!

I liked the connection between Ryland and Brighton even if they did get off to a rough  -pen intended – start , although I felt that with the way the book was written it came to a rather quick end.  I’m not saying it should have been dragged out unnecessarily but for everything they had been through I felt that it needed more from the point of Ryland going missing (easy for me to say, I don’t write books).

An exciting and steamy read, lots of ups and downs in a turbulent ride of emotions for both Brighton and Ryland.

I love to Read! Mostly romance (of all types) but I also enjoy murder mysteries, paranormal fantasy, sci-fi, comedy, pretty much anything.
