The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn't choose takes him into a future that does not include her...

So. HAHAHA, well this is a reread review. The last time that I read this book, I was a young little girl, so the feels didn’t really affect me that much, and reading an Adult book got me all intense and suffocating. But, this series was my ultimate series and so, I’ve decided to reread it, so YAY.

This book is about Vishous, the one guy who might or might not be gay for Butch. If you’ve read the previous books, you would know about this. You would also know that V was a little screwed in the head. He was self-destructive, and frankly, he wasn’t a good company. I have to admit, V is probably one of the few Brothers that I didn’t care about. DIDN’T. Past tense. Because in the past few books, he’s always been in the background, with his shitty attitude and temper. But woah, color me surprise when I read about his background and who he really is. And his thoughts. Messed up is probably an understatement.

This dude is all kinds of…..hurt. And then came Jane. I liked Jane since the start, especially when I realized that she was a surgeon. Man, I have a thing for surgeons. I just find them so amazing, because hey, it takes a whole lot of courage to dive into one’s body (literally) and tinker with the organs. UGH. But anyway, Jane was pretty much as strong as V. What she didn’t have in terms of physical strength, she made up for it with her attitude. I swear, if she ever became a vampire, she could probably kick a whole lot of asses.

However, this book has its flaws. Some parts of the book felt super abrupt. There were times when I got completely confused and wondered So what does that have got to do with anything? What made me completely annoyed was the constant change in point of views. I don’t mind if a book has tons of point of views, but this book made it frustrating because each and every chapter/POV leaves you hanging, and when you want to know what happen next, you have to read through like five POVs before getting back to that one.

But this book was sinfully hot, steamy and all kinds of feels welled up inside me. I actually really loved that whole bonded male protective shit going on. So sexy. HAHAH. But man, next book is about Phury. Now THAT is another fucked up mister.
