Crime Lord’s Captive (Crime Lord #1) by Mia Knight has me torn between loving it and hating it. It is a dark and twisted story that had me on edge the whole way through. It is a story about a crime lord who is dark and dangerous and obsessed with his girlfriend who has been missing for 3 years. This book is action packed and full of suspense and drama, hate and love, murder and abuse, pain and angst. Mia has embraced the dark side of the underworld that is violent and disturbing by nature and has shown us a world that we can only imagine. A world that is violent and uncompromising. A world that is kill or be killed.
Lyla loved him once, until she saw just what he was. What she saw, she could never unsee and it was enough for her to go into hiding. Lyla created a new life but she is constantly living in fear of being found and living a secret. Now her past has come calling and she has to face her worst nightmare, the man that terrifies her. The same man she once loved but that man was long gone. But is she safe from the world in which he lives?
Gavin has never stopped searching for the woman he loves. He refuses to believe she left willingly. She has become his obsession, his possession, his and he will stop at nothing to get her back. But can he keep her safe from the violent world in which he lives? Can he keep her safe from himself?
This crazy, disturbing and yet strangely beautiful story ended in a huge cliffhanger that had my emotions all over the place and now I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.
