Review: Cruel Sanctuary by Tara Leigh

Cruel Sanctuary (Wages of Sin Book 1)
by Tara Leigh

They say New York City is the Devil’s Playground.
They’re wrong.
This city belongs to me.
And so does Aislinn Granville.

She is a pampered politician’s daughter.
A decorative ornament, raised to smile and nod and do what she’s told.
Except… she doesn’t. Not with me. Ever.

In this city full of thugs and thieves, I’ve kept Aislinn safe.
From my enemies.
From me.

Until now.


The life that Aislinn had been dealt with wasn’t really as glamorous as what the perceived of her family. The daughter of a high-profiled District Attorney, Aislinn Granville was anything but pampered and spoiled and sheltered. Nope, there was more that met the eye when it came to this main female protagonist. She was something else.

When she discovered the truth about her esteemed father, Aislinn’s life was endangered. On the brink of death threats and her father’s treachery, there was only one person who could protect her at all costs. And that is Damon King; powerful, wealthy, dangerous, intoxicating, cruel. Notoriously known for the fierce methods he did to unjustly people, criminals, corrupt politicians and druglords, Aislinn’s life was now at stake in the hands of the King. And it was only a matter of time before all his dirty, dark secrets could betray him.

This story is dangerously good, devastatingly fantastic and wickedly raw. I couldn’t fathom how my initial hatred to Damon King turned upside down and ended in me admiring him for what he’d done to the scorned woman that is Aislinn. Tara Leigh is awesome, there’s no more other words I could describe her. She keeps upping her game and continuously pleases her readers with dark, dangerous and exhilarating characters. To say that I have enjoyed reading this book is an understatement. Cruel Sanctuary by Tara Leigh is by far my favorite among her books. I won’t be surprised if the second book could surpass the excitement I felt for the first one. Can’t wait for book 2 – Corrupt Savior! Definitely a must-read!
