Trapped in the library of an old Brownstone with a monster filled with terrible power and darkness, street thief Kierse, when, instead of killing her, the monster offers her a job--gets a glimpse into who she really is, which could be something far worse than a monster. Some things aren't supposed to exist outside of our imagination. Thirteen years ago, monsters emerged from the shadows and plunged Kierse's world into a cataclysmic war of near-total destruction. The New York City she knew so well collapsed practically overnight. In the wake of that carnage, the Monster Treaty was created. A truce...of sorts. But tonight, Kierse, a gifted and fearless thief, will break that treaty. She'll enter the Holly Library...not knowing it's the home of a monster. He's charming. Quietly alluring. Terrifying. But he knows talent when he sees it; it's just a matter of finding her price. Now she's locked into a dangerous bargain with a creature unlike any other. She'll sacrifice her freedom. She'll offer her skills. Together, they'll put their own futures at risk. But he's been playing a game across centuries--and once she joins in, there will be no escape...… (mere)

This was a little tough for me to rate if I'm going to be honest, so I am going to keep it as simple as I can.

Likes:
The Main Characters Wren/Kierse and Graves, I enjoyed their chemistry for the most part
World building and the intricate telling of the monsters, humans, and their folklore.
The romance/connection building between Kierse and Graves

Dislikes:
The storyline was kind of all over the place for me, to be fair it got to a point that I had no clue what was going on, I got Beauty and the Beast vibes but there was so much drama with the main characters and their past (exes) drama that it tended to pull me from the story, I would get into the storyline then the author went a different direction and pulled me out the story. There is something here but it just ended falling flat for me. It saddens me because I feel like this could've been a really great book.

Another dislike the spice, Author's for the love of all bookworms, if you are going to write a spicy scene please make it make sense and flow easy with the story. The spice scene seemed forced like "hey I can include spice in my book too for all you spice readers" smh and it's not to say I don't have my share of love for smut books but let's stop forcing certain trends just because everyone else is.

I might check out the next book but when it is available in the library meaning I am in absolutely no rush to get to the next one.

I am so sorry because I really don't like giving bad reviews but this was just not a hit for me at all. ( )

It took me a really long time to get into the book. About 100 pages or so. I felt like the character development was lacking and that the plot had a bunch of holes in it. But once it started to take off I couldn't put it down. My only dislike is that it had a child like feel to it with Vampires, Fae, Wovles, and all mythical creatures being called monsters. I feel like a much darker/adult type of name could have been given to that group because reading a book that says monster this, monster that, oh no is he a monster? sounds so child like. It made the book hard to take serious. But I did really enjoy it and cant wait for the next one to come out. I hope they fill in the missing plot holes of this one and make it a bit more for adults and I'm not referring to spice, just in the language that is used. I don't want to give away spoilers but certain events and actions need to be done in a more believable way as some of them came off as corny and unrealistic. The limited edition book its self is SO gorgeous. ( )
