Ignazio Vitale is not a good man.
I suspect it the first time I see him, sense the air of danger that surrounds him. 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. 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.

"Dark But Sexy, Intriguing and Pure Drama - Great!"
I was reluctant to try this book mainly due to the publisher summary. I have listened to the Dark Duet series and it was a really, really, intense, hard trip. Monster in His Eyes sounded very much like that (CJ Roberts)
Two things finally swayed me to give it a try. 1. My best audio book friend, Dawn absolutely loved it. She RAVED about it. We are so similar in our tastes that when we compared our libraries they were almost identical. However, I needed one more little push. 2. It is narrated by Lynn Barrington, one of my favorite 'Top Three' female narrators.
I am so glad that I listened! It is fantastic! I read the author's previous two audio books and I cannot believe the change. The other two were NOT something I would recommend, ever. This book is absolutely fantastic. The maturity and professionalism of the writing in 'Monster in His Eyes' is off the charts good compared to the previous series, in my opinion.
If you like a little bit of a mind trip, as well as a super sexy book, I think that you will like this one as well. If you do not like going to "dark" places you may not like it. I am glad that I gave it a try. *I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my review. Again, I am so glad that I gave it a try and cannot wait for the sequel, I want it now!
Lynn Barrington is the consummate professional. It amazes me that she is performing the character of an 18-year-old girl one moment and in the next breath she is just as believable performing "the monster" Ignacio - in I an equally believable manner. Professionalism and talent on display. If you are considering becoming a voice actor, listen to Lynn Barrington and learn!
Notes: Mature themes, violence & strong language
Rating: NC–17 if it were in a movie theater,
I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select "yes" directly below this review? Thank you so much.
Please consider "following me" here on Audible.com. I purchase a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to and well known names. I also have the unique opportunity to review books from lesser known/new authors in all genres. Most of these books are not something that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and great narrators.
"Just skimmed the surface!"
Wow, I really liked these characters and their history but I need to know way more. This listen really lacked depth and detail, there was so much more to the story that could have been written! The sex scenes were way to basic for this couple and need jacked up about 100%. I enjoyed the narrator. I am stumped as to why the author went this way with her story, maybe there will be more to come.
I know that there were some creepy aspects to this love story, but Loved !!so bummed book # 2 isn't available on audiobook yet.
Great narration.... great storyline....the love story could of used some depth ..... but overall brava!!! I usually do not enjoy books that leave you hanging .... I cannot wait for book two. If it is as good as this one ... I believe this author will be around a while!
When Kissimmee found out the truth (no spoilers here)
So worth a credit. Cannot wait for the next book!!!
"Wow what an amazing book"
The narrator was great, and the story keeps you wondering, and anticipating whats next.
I wouldn't compare it to others, this is why I love it so much. It's in its own class.
Vitale of course.
I couldn't put it down!
I am so glad I took a chance on this book. They don't have the second on on audible but I went out and bought it and now I am sad that I am done reading them. I also never write reviews but I had to on this on because the author deserves it!
I would...again and again. I like the writing ,story, narrator...
The story line and the romance there...
no ,but it will be rectified
Yes but it will be best if the second book was ready too....Torture to Her Soul (Monster in His Eyes, #2)
When will be ready Torture to Her Soul (Monster in His Eyes, #2)?
This was such a great book! Naz is such a great character! He's not a good a man, but doesn't hide that fact either. I think if I were Karissa, I woould have fallen for him too! J.M. Darhower is an amazing writer!
This was a great listen
Loved the narrator
And it is not so dark written as the title is making it out to be , so it Can be a story for all.
"Not your typical mafia romance"
Karissa a young college student falls for a man she knows she shouldn't. Finds herself in a conundrum. Do we really choose who the person is we fall in love with? Or was she beguiled?
"awesomeness is the key"
I loved this book from the very beginning and end amd I laughed I got to excited when. I first open this book and got to here the audio with it. it was qas just to die for. I was so hook on every single page and I wanted so much more for this book and audio. this is a first time I have read this author and I'm so happy I did I will be looking forward to reading the next book and hopeful a audio with it soon.
