She takes my breath away; she is so beautifully damaged.
Yes I had broken her, ravished her life, destroyed her happiness. I brought her to ultimate despair. I was responsible for all the pain and suffering that now brought her to her knees in front of me.
Reckless in her agony.
She is a mirror of my own tortured soul.
But what I took away I can give back.
In ways she cannot even begin to imagine.
She is everything right in all my wrongs.
She loves me. She needs me.
She has no idea I’m the one who wrecked her life.

♥MY REVIEW♥ by Caroline
Vandal is book 2 of the Ashes and Embers series by Carian Cole, but it can be read as a stand-alone. It is the story of Vandal and Tabitha who have experienced a tragic loss and help each other overcome it. I enjoyed the story very much and thought the author did an excellent job making me connect with the two characters. I really liked the way Carian wrote this romance with a BDSM side to it. She showed that it can be used as means of pleasure, but also how one can escape the reality of the suffering you encounter from a tragic loss, like these two characters experienced. One big key factor why you get to be so engaged in the story is the author writes in a beautiful and tasteful way from both points of view. Vindal is the kind of bad boy every woman dream about. All bad ass on the outside but when he is willing to let his wall come down some, you get to see the beautiful man with a heart of gold that he is. Tabitha was an amazing character, who I really connected with through the whole story… well that is till the very last chapter when Carian surprised me with a twisted ending. Now personally I did not like this little twist, but that is because I felt I saw myself in Tabitha. I still recommend that you read the book, you will not be disappointed with all the emotions you will find yourself in while reading it.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.
My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published on September of 2014. Vandal, the second novel in this series is publishing in February of 2015. I currently have approximately nine books slated for this series, as well as an MC series in the works, and a few stand-alones coming in 2015 onward.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
