Straight out of the gate, beware of the trigger warnings. Shantel Tessier does a good job of explaining what they are. There are dark romances and then there are the other dark romances that make ‘dark’ romances seem sunny and bright. This isn’t sunny and bright.
From the first word in the prologue, you know that you are headed for some hot, steamy, and dare I say, erotic times. Colton and Raylee are stepsiblings with a vehement hatred for each other. It’s not clearly explained why they hate each other so much, just that as stepsiblings they do. Because of this, there is a flowing push/pull thread weaved throughout the book.
If you like hot, steamy, yet degraded, and submissive heroines, then Raylee is your girl. If you like over-the-top, alpha, and uber possessive (she’s mine and you can’t have her) heroes, there is Colton. Beyond that, I had trouble finding a plotline. The storyline itself was hit and miss. There were certain situations that just happened, but it didn’t make sense overall, nor had a resolution to some.
I have read other books from Shantel and have loved them, yet it saddens me that Sabotage was just kind of there and I read it because it was available. I will continue to her read books, but this one just didn’t hit the mark for me.
