Once upon a time she became mine.
Mine to keep.
She was a healer.
He was a serial killer.
She helped people.
He destroyed them.
She was a beautiful angel.
He was a vicious monster.
She wanted to run away.
He captured her instead.
She promised to never surrender.
He guaranteed that she would.
Two lives, the hunter and the prey, forever entwined together.
In this battle of wills, there would be no winner.

Arson’s Captive by V.F. Mason
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one I have been really looking forward to for quite a while, from the very first encounter I have been fascinated with Arson and just how he ticks and the small teasers we have been given from previous books in this series have only whetted my appetite more. Impression wise Arson for me is definitely one of the worst serial killers we have been introduced too to-date. He had an almost cold, empty blankness to him not really surprising considering his background and what we later learn he has had to endure growing up.
It is actually surprising he has any conscience or sense of morality considering his horrific past.
I know Arson is not a good man and never will be, yet he is the bad man who protects me from the likes of Marcello, Pastor and their friends.
This was almost a beauty and the beast scenario, but one where there is no actual redemption or saving more a rescue through Callista’s acceptance of the whole, in turn, giving Arson something he has unknowingly craved all his life, someone who is categorically just his heart and soul and acknowledges the good and bad equally, she manages to quiet the noise and soothes his inner beast somewhat.
She is the light in my darkness, the only thing brightening up my world with her smile alone. She is the gasoline to my fire, the angel to my demon reigning inside me and the calm during my life that is nothing but an endless storm.
As this story progresses we get to witness a much warmer Arson start to emerge: well at least in regards to his beautiful captive to all else he is still a cold merciless killer. So if Callista’s story was painful and sad Arsons was much worse and my heart literally broke in two with what child Arson/Artem has had to endure. Action wise this was definitely more of a slow-burn but when these two finally do connect it was heated and the chemistry output off the charts, definitely worth the wait. This is one of my favourites to date of this series and I absolutely adored every twisted and dark moment I really didn’t want it to end. Also, can I just say that epilogue was pure magic I adored it and it was the icing for me, seriously is was fantastic. I bloody devoured this one reading in one sitting and highly recommend this fascinating series especially if you like something a tad different. This author just manages to deliver every single time and I highly recommend this series. Warning before I go this story has some series triggers in regards to the childhoods of both Calista and Arson (mostly Arson) which we get to experience in a series of flashbacks which is the usual style for this author), If you have read this author before you will know what I mean and to expect.

About the Author:
V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favourite authors.
