Arrogant Bastard

"It's one thing to have your insides ripped out when a relationship, or whatever the fuck we had, ends. It's another to be eviscerated without explanation and left bleeding and half-dead."  ~ 2%

Killian Knight has searched for Faith for four years. He longs for her. They created chaos together, committed transgressions, ate forbidden fruit, betrayed others and killed for their love. But Faith doesn't want to be found. She wants her stable life back without all the espionage and danger. Faith calls bullshit on the belief that you can't help who you fall in love with. Passion isn't always worth your peace of mind.

"Words that will never make it into poetry history books, but they move me enough to evoke tears." ~ 87%

This is more than just a spy story. It has passion, intense scenes and emotional characters, whose names seemed to represent their personalities too. My first time reading a novel by Zara Cox was good. From the title and description alone, it reminded me of a couple novels by Belle Aurora. But Arrogant Bastard stands out on its own.

The way Zara Cox spun words was like poetry. Some lines (pages) matter and some are filler. But an act of pulling a trigger takes readers through every step of the character's thought process. It makes the drawn out parts worth getting past. I recommend this new release. Plus it'll look pretty on your bookcase thanks to the lovely cover.

Happy Early Pub Day, Zara Cox. Arrogant Bastard will be available Tuesday, September 12.
