Cute? All it made me want to do is stake his ass in the heart Where was the sexy loving perfect Carpathian lifemate that cherish and protects Now I stopped for a about ten minutes after reading this Ranted at my poor husband about how pissed I was Decided that I would give the hero another chance as he was new to emotions and from a time when men spanked their wives Can you guess how long it was before Isai had me in a murderous rage again9 pages later when the asshole spanks her again after having just had sex with her Yup you heard me right he whipped her ass again He was on her in half a second pulling her across his lap and smacking her hard over and over He knew she wasn't feeling it with the thick trousers he'd given her so using mind commands he removed them There was satisfaction in seeing his handprint on her bare skin She screamed when he connected He wasn't being gentle His hands were large and she was extremely petite His palm took up one cheek easily He reddened them both and only stopped when she was crying page 33 I mean are you fucking kidding me right now? This is not sexyit's abuse You don't put your hands on your woman to hurt her Just because he was slapping her ass and not her face doesn't make him less of an abusive piece of shit He was angry at her and decided to use his size and strength to hurt and humiliate her He was trying to control her That isn't love It's Disgusting At this point I didn't think I could be any madder Truly but again I was wrong After beating her ass twice and talking a bunch of crap about how she stole from the Princewhich she didn't stating how he was her lord he had the balls to be shocked that she didn't sound excited about being his lifemate He decide that she wasn't what he thought a lifemate should be and coldly rejected her He the asshole tells her she has no honor OMG what a joke After acting like an abusive ass he decided to give her a little emotional abuse too I mean lets make her think she falls short of what a lifemate should be She is the one without honor Not the brute that didn't take five minutes to learn why his lifemate was scared to be claimed but instead talked shit to her and beat her ass Yea she was the disappointment It totally wasn't him I can't uote every single time he took a dig at her Acted cold and distant towards her Insinuated she was selfish and had no honor Told her she wasn't good enough for him She was not what he hoped for Because I would be here all day But this uote touches on it You're determined to think the worst of me You're the one who spanked me If you do that again I'm going to stab you through the heart It won't be necessary to spank you again In my world at least during the time I came from a man treasured his woman If she needed a lesson as you did it was his duty to give it to her He was responsible for all aspects of her care Times were very dangerous and obedience was necessary for safety Others not Carpathians over the centuries abused their women and I suppose it became something else Something not between two people who love each other She started to tell him it wasn't love but then what he said caught at her What do you mean it won't be necessary? You are clearly not my treasure Julija and Isai By this point I was just done with Isai I couldn't stand him Later when he learned he was wrong and caught feelings for her deciding she was worth it I didn't care He wasn't worth it I can never look at him and see anything other than an asshole When he later spouted crap about how lifemates are perfect for each other and the males always make the women happy That they love and treasure them blah blah fucking blah I Just rolled my eyes and thought Yeah fucking right you asshole The romance was ruined all because an author thought to add spanking to the story It's not edgy or cool I have seen this and in books and I don't like the trend Like I said erotic spanking is for sexual pleasure it's consensual I enjoy books with erotic spanking but when you write about a whipping for punishment it's disgusting I did finish the book because it has a carrying story line and I'm 33 books into the plot Can't miss something important because the love story sucked It took me forever to finish it and I hated Isai so hard Overall I gave the book 2 stars for the plot alone I really hope the next book is better So disappointed On a side note I forgot to add the ending was rushed and didn't feel like an ending It felt unfinished Like all the other books in the series there is 44 pages at the back of the book that are appendix 1 and 2 filled with Carpathian hea
