Torture To Her Soul ( Monster In His Eyes #2) – J. M. Darhower

torture in her soul

Book Description

Don’t say it unless you mean it…

It’s a simple concept, one I’ve said time and again, but something people don’t seem to comprehend. You should choose every syllable carefully, because you never know when somebody will hold you to your word.

Somebody like me.

I’m not a good man. I’m not. I know. I have enough darkness inside of me to rid the world of every stitch of light. But there’s one I could never harm, one light I couldn’t bring myself to snuff out.


She thinks I’m a monster, and maybe I am. I taunt her with my touch, get a thrill out of torturing her soul. But I’m not the only one. The world is full of monsters, and I’m not the most dangerous one out there.

Not even close…

God help me, I love her.

I do.

And God help anyone who tries to take her from me.

Divas Thoughts

So God help us, we loved this book! Aaah. There´s hardly a day that goes by without thinking about Naz and Karissa. What a wonderful, 100% exciting story! And what´s best of all….it´s written from Naz´s POV * dramatic faint *

For those of you who read book #1, Monster In His Eyes, will find this story fulfilling in the best way ever.

This book starts off where book #1 ended- with Karissa hating Naz, and turned out to be an adventure of the two main characters trying desperately to win each others trust back, without trying to hurt each other along the way.

* sigh * we all know that´s not possible. Lol. Not with Naz, and certainly not with Karissa.

Much to our delight…Naz and Karissa gave us what we love in a good book. Angst ( lots of it), love & sex * drop-dead-fantastic *, and of course their struggle to keep each other and chose between right and wrong. And let us tell you- some scenes sent chills down our spines ( in a good and bad way)!!

An absolute MUST READ about love that shouldn´t have existed from the start.

( and we soooooo glad that love happened!)

Would we recommend this book?

  • Absolutely

Would we re-read this book?

  • most definitely. This book is worth going back to reread some scenes.

Book Description


Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.

I suspect it, the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds the man. He has a way of commanding attention, of taking control, of knowing what I’m thinking before I even do.

It’s alarming and alluring. It’s dark and deadly. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted but the last thing I truly need. Obsession.

It doesn’t take him long to draw me into his web, charming me into his bed and trapping me in his life, a life I know nothing about until it’s too late. He has secrets, secrets I can’t fathom, secrets that make it so I can’t walk away, no matter how much I beg him to let me go. I see it sometimes in his eyes, a darkness that’s both terrifying and thrilling. He’s a monster, wrapped up in a pretty package, and what I find when I unmask him changes everything.

I want to hate him.

Sometimes, I do.

But it doesn’t stop me from loving him, too.

Divas Thoughts

Jesus, Mary & Joseph! What the…? How the hell..? Where did this book come from? And why in God´s name were we staring at the cover for nearly a week, having doubts about this book?

There are times where we would like to kick ourselves just because we feel we have too. NOW is that time.

This, dear followers / friends, is another wonderful mind screwing novel! No shit. We admit…we haven´t read anything from this author before. And we have another reason to give ourselves a good kick in the ass. The writing style was impeccable and the story was dark, dangerous, and captivating. There was hardly a moment we hoped nothing terrible would happen.

That´s just it! You don´t wait for the big surprise in this book, you hope to God that there isn´t a surprise at all because you want these characters to survive. But survive what?

We´d say this book is semi predictable because a reader knows something will happen from the very beginning. Something that might change the characters feelings, or even their relationship. You can´t really put your finger on it, but you definitely don´t want it or anything to happen…

Karissa Reed is a normal 18 year old college student who lives off of Ramen soup. One day after one of Karissas classes she notices her missing phone and goes back to get it. Right there in the classroom was a man who would change her life forever.

Naz ( Ignazio Vitale ) was a man who had it all ( + some more ). He was handsome as hell and had a frightening attitude to compliment his features. In short: Beneath the pretty shell was something dark.

Funny thing was….through out the complete book a reader gets the good side of Naz. He treats Karissa with so much respect and love, showering her with everything she would ask for. His purpose in life was to make sure Karissa was happy in every way possible. Karissa on the other hand just wanted Naz. * sigh *

Until the moment came…….

The dialogue in this book was kept simple and yet very interesting. There was no beating-around-the-bush. No trying to sugar coat anything. There was no hiding. NADA. Well….not that Karissa was aware of…:-)

We loved how this book had a steady pace and how it kept us guessing when the big BANG would happen.

And the sex…..dear God…..let there be a freezer good enough to cool us down!

This book will shock you in the best way ever. You will be left speechless and you will sure as hell suffer from an awful book-hangover.

We need the second book. There is no other way we can find happiness until we know what will happen to Karissa! So frustrating! We hate it when we have to wait. 

We wish there were more books out there like this one. Monster In His Eyes is a 100% dark suspence romance that will screw with your emotions.
