Pain by Amanda Mackey REVIEW

Life is sweet in The Sanctuary—until Lillian Harris is thrown the curveball of her life.


Lillian is perfectly happy cocooned within the lofty perimeter fence of The Sanctuary. Her Sanctuary—a vast oasis for rescued lions, tigers and elephants. The animals are her world. So when Lillian’s dad tells her a nineteen-year-old criminal who’s fresh out of prison is coming to The Sanctuary as part of a rehabilitation program, Lillian is more than a little apprehensive. She interacts with animals more than humans—and definitely not criminals.

Justice Armstrong is more arrogant than a Silverback, but something darker lurks behind his eyes...

It isn’t until Justice swaggers toward her from the parole officer’s car—pierced, confidant, and more than a little hot—Lillian knows she has her work cut out for her. His stare has the power to rob her of all thought. His words, although crude and nefarious, bring a part of her to life she never knew existed. How is this criminal suddenly turning her world upside down?

He has the power to drag her to the dark side....

Pain—his drug of choice. A vice he can’t survive without. Then he meets her—Lillian Harris. Little miss hellcat. Fiery, strong, and all woman. She challenges him at every damn turn, and watching her tame those fierce big cats...well, it just makes his need for her that much stronger.
He wants to do things to her...wicked things. She makes him crave pain in a whole new way.

When a teen with a dark past bumps heads with the feisty rescue worker, will it be love over lust—or a matter of life and death? 

This book! holy s@*!balls! Where do I start.
Well I had to let it soak in overnight...
This is an emotional, pain filled, dark, heart breaking, gut wrenching story... but in the end heart warming and inspiring!...
I cried a lot, got mad, and had moments of happiness.
There is just so much awesomeness in this book. The sex is off the charts hot! So fricken steamy.The wild animals! I completely loved them and they were such a big part of this book.
And I went in blind! I had no clue what this story would hold.
I was rewarded with all the feels! Such an amazing story, but not for the faint of heart. The pain filled side of the story just crushed me. Be warned. Have tissues and chocolate on hand, you will need them.
I so look forward to reading more from this author.
