“Agent Cas Steele has lost his beloved cousin Faith to a serial killer. The only link to find the killer is Faith’s best friend Jewell MacLeod. Cas relentlessly pursues Jewell as she tries to hide from becoming the killers next victim. When he is charged with seducing Jewell into becoming bait, he never thought his anger would flip on him...making Jewell the most precious person to protect. Now she is caught in the cross hairs of the FBI and a serial killer, can he keep her safe without loosing what he’s fought so long to find...vengeance on the person that destroyed Faith’s life.
Every facet of this story is brought to you with such stunning detail; you can’t help but be memorized into the life of the characters. The sexual interaction is utterly smoldering! I was blown away by how Eros captured the soul of Cas...even down to the interactions of his relationship with his co-workers.
A Brutal Tenderness is the companion novel of A Terrible Love (a NY Times Bestseller). Immersing us in Cas’s side of the story, Marata Eros creates a dark, haunting tale of Cas’s raw emotions, heart ache and grief for loosing what he holds most dear, his cousin. This book was absolutely brilliant! Eros’s writing pulls you in right into the story, making you feel like an intimate participant in Cas’s journey. Without a doubt, I loved watching the story unfold from Cas's prospective. This book will be added as one of my all time favorites.
