JM Darhower – Torture to her Soul is book two in the Monster in his Eyes series
Torture in her Soul provides some of the answers I seek after reading Monster in his Eyes. It picks back up where Monster in his Eyes left off. Karissa Reed (Rita) is distraught over Ignazio (Naz) Vitale’s actions. She wanders through their home trying to ignore that he exists. But he won’t give in. He acknowledges her at every opportunity. Infuriating her more. She stays because she can’t leave but she isn’t sure she would if she could. Ignazio Vitale is her Knight and her Demon. He’s her Savior from the very world he brought her into or did he? Considering who her parents are, she was more than destined to be in this world.
After a near death incident Karissa’s affection is rekindled for Naz but then he messes it up again. And she is right back to hating him. So he tells her to go. But she can’t stay gone and his death wish attitude almost causes him to lose her. By the end of the book everything seems to have worked out. But I am still left with questions. Did he really get out? Is he the new boss? When he’s working now is it to insure their safety from the family? Or is it to insure their place on top?
I feel for Karissa in her struggle to love a monster and hate him at the same time. That reflects my feelings towards this book and the first. I love the loving endearing side of Naz and the seemingly naiveness of Karissa. And the way they are designed for each other by her family’s past actions.
