There are so many pieces to Damien and Anais, they are like a puzzle you have to piece together piece by piece. While they both want the same thing they aren't even on the same book. Their lack of communication and trust in each other is a blinding issue.
I love the push/pull relationship they have going on. One minute they want each other and the next one wants to kill the other. But their battles aren't so much with each other as themselves.
With her father being shot and not knowing who did it Damien is taking no chances with Anais safety. While this methods of protecting her are a tad to the left they come from a good place. I think he blackmails her because he feels it's the only way to get her to be with him when in fact she's crazy about him and all he has to do it ask and mean it.
Bri Blackwood has mastered the art of a cliffhanger. Once again book two has left me dying for book three! I NEED IT NOW!!! Scarred Empire is a must read for everyone!
Damien Cross is a powerful man that has a lot of rumors running rampant about him and his family. He has money, clout, and a reputation of being a man that gets things done, one way or another. He’s a man used to getting what he wants when he wants it, but he has a hard time with feelings and letting them show. He’s all business all the time, but Anais has an effect on him that he can’t figure out.
Anais Monroe is the daughter of Monroe Media Corporation and the Director of Social Media. Her life has been turned upside down and she just wants to go back to a normal life, with her job and her family safe. She doesn’t want to have to worry about signing her life away to protect those she cares about, but she has a big heart and couldn’t live with herself if something happened that she could have prevented.
These two come from two different worlds yet, they seem to keep finding themselves back in each other’s lives and the danger just keeps mounting for them. Who is determined to hurt Anais and her family? How can Damien keep her safe and protect her family’s business from rumors or danger if she won’t cooperate with him? I love this book and these characters. Anais may not be as powerful in business or life as Damien is, but with him by her side, her confidence shows brightly. He supports her even if he tries to control a lot of her life. I have been so intrigued with this story that I cannot wait for the next book in the series, Steel Empire. The cliff hanger at the end was both frustrating and intriguing. I look forward to more of the Broken Cross Series. I give this book a 5-star review.
I loved seeing Damien's confusion about his attraction and feelings for Anais. He does not do relationships so this.... whatever it is... he has with Anais has him in a spin. We only get a few chapters from his POV but I really appreciated hearing from him and seeing his turmoil. He definitely has a lot to learn about women, especially the one woman who is constantly in his thoughts. The conversation with his brother had me laughing out loud.
This book is a little more dark than the first one, not so much in the sex but in the glimpses we get into Damien's way of doing business, and also the anticipation of the fallout from the ending, which I did not see coming.
Anais and Damien continued to pull me in to their story and the pages kept on turning until I reached the end before I even realised it. The action flowed well and with yet another cliff-hanger, this one worse than the last, I was completely hooked and can't wait for Steel Empire.
Now, I have to say Bri Blackwood is a bit mean, she keeps leaving us with these cliffies! This book picks up right from where book 1 left off. Anais is once again put in a situation where she must make a "deal" with Damian for her safety and her family's livelihood. Frankly, I'm not mad about it. The chemistry between Damian and Anais is HOT. I love that some of the conflicts in this book are more than business, Damian is really beginning to get personal with Anias and I am here for that! The downside to this is that the more personal things get the more danger our couple seem to be in.
Once again we are left needing more! I can not wait to see what happens next!

I've definitely warmed up to Damien "he's soooooo hot" and one very sexy guy. I bought this book as well as the first one and I have pre-ordered the last in the trilogy. I have thoroughly enjoyed both books so far, a very good story, I can only advise you to read this trilogy it has everything you could want. Roll on book 3
