A pair of motorcycle boots, size thirteen. A Harley-Davidson T-shirt. A pair of blue jeans ripped in both knees. A black hoodie. A leather wallet containing eighty-five dollars. And a silver necklace with a St. Christopher medallion. “Here is two hundred and fifty dollars, a map, and three condoms. You got someone picking you up?"
These are the opening lines of a book that will devour you, it will eat you alive, your emotions won’t know how to react to some of the things that Monica James throws at you. If you have read her ALL THE PRETTY THINGS series and loved it, you ain’t seen nothing yet. BULLSEYE is dark, raw, gripping, gritty, it will have you mesmerised and wanting more and more with each page that you read.
Monica is known for writing strong and sometimes tormented characters, however Bull is like no one you have ever met before. He is tortured by an event, a tragedy, that he witnessed at the age of fifteen. At seventeen he earnt his name "Bullseye" and now at almost thirty he is out to extract revenge on the remaining three of four men who destroyed his life. Bull was made up of so many layers, I think that is what draws the reader to him. He's tortured, tormented, protective, gentle and caring (when he wants to be), broken hearted (but he'll never admit that), he's a bad boy and filthy mouthed. The one thing he MOST DEFINITELY is ... swoonworthily attractive. Monica's description of him and the tattoos that cover him ... simply delectable. The cover featuring Andrew England is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.
Lily "Tiger" Hope ... well, what a feisty, strong, sassy heroine she is. She is the perfect foil for Bull. Lily has not had the easiest of life, being constantly abandoned by those she loves. The moment she sees Bull she feels drawn to him, however she fights the magnetic pull as much as she can. Lily is the total opposite to Bull, she's sweet, wholesome (in her own way), loving, she's also willing to stand up for herself and put Bull back into his place. Lily is also very protective of those she loves. Bull scares her, but not in the way that you think, he has the ability to bring things out in her that even she didn't know existed.
"I've felt this undeniable pull from the first moment I saw him in the club. He guards secrets - deep, dark ones - yet that only lures me in deeper."
Bull and Lily are a fatal attraction. Their chemistry is instant and insanely hot. It's not the chemistry that they need to be fearful of though ... it is the feelings and emotions that are being awakened. Are they going to be able to traverse their relationship or are there extenuating circumstances that are bound to tear them apart?
Monica has written a superb beginning to this epic story. It twists and turns in so many ways that you will be continually saying to yourself "WTF?" Nothing is simple or easy, in fact everything is extremely complicated. The more you get into this story, the more you realise there is a lot more going on than you initially thought. This is a dark romance, but it is also full of mystery and suspense. What are lies and what is the truth?
"The knuckle tattoos are a reminder of what I am. A lone wolf, ready to tear apart anything that stands in my way."
BULLSEYE is a true masterpiece, one that will have you gripping the edge of your seat. It is not a light read, it is heavy, disturbing, passionate, intense and heartbreakingly sad. It is also extremely addictive and impossible to put down.
"... his eyes are the perfect analogy to how I feel. I like and hate him all in the same breath; both sides fighting for domination over the other. The jury is still out on which side will win."
I have read all of Monica's published books to date, and this one by far is her very best. It ends on a twist that I never saw coming. Hearts will be broken and vengeance will be more than declared. This was one almighty cliffhanger that will leave you chomping at the bit for the next instalment.
Oh, did I mention ... Bull is simply DIVINE.
Get it now and prepare for a dirty, filthy, bloodthirsty ride, that is also dark, raw, violent.
