All they had to do was accept her deal and Shadow would give them everything they could ever want.
Despite being born a mafia prince, Damien Chaos lacked the one thing he desperately wanted.
Absolute power and control.
If he wanted that, Shadow was the answer.
The only problem was the Shadow Empire is a kingdom of the intangible and they owe their allegiance to no one.
Kidnapping their lead scientist was the only answer.
If Damien could possess her, if he could resist his desire – if he could just ignore how badly he wanted to carve a symphony of obsession into her skin – he’d finally get the answers he’s been searching for.
They may call him cruel and psychotic.
Manipulative and ruthless.
But they have no idea exactly how far he’ll go to win his kingdom, because Damien Chaos can play this game better than anyone else.
That is, until he met her.
All power comes with a cost.
And that price is their pain and sacrifice.
The pretty mafia prince and his boys may think they have what it takes, but they could never break her.
Desdemona is a ghost – a shadow, and the mafia could never get their hands on her.
But Damien, Aeron, and Kaito were too beautiful to deny. All she had to do was let them think they’re in control. Then they’d fall right into her trap.
They would become hers.
All three of them.
She would use their desire to dig her claws deeper into their minds until they began to relish in the pain – until they finally submit.
For the first time in their lives Damien, Aeron and Kaito are forced to learn what true chaos really is.
This is a reverse harem mafia romance where the villain gets the girl. It has some dark themes including manipulation, stalking, kidnapping, and violence. This story also has MM.
“If I thought I could steal you from him, I would,” she whispered, and somehow Kaito knew she was talking about Aeron, not Damien. “I’d be willing to share you with him though. He’s almost as pretty as you are. I want him to break me, but I want you…I want you to eat me alive.”
Kaito shuddered, knowing he was well and truly fucked now. This girl understood him, and he hadn’t said a single word. She wanted what he wanted, and his obsession with Aeron didn’t seem like a dirty little secret when she talked about it.
She was focused on his scar like it held the secrets of the universe. Then she looked up at him and licked her lips.
For the first time since it happened, someone else had touched that mark on his neck and he hadn’t wanted to destroy her for it. No, Kaito wanted this crazy woman to sink her teeth into it, even though he knew it would hurt like a bitch.
A strangled sound left him and Kaito couldn’t even be bothered to feel embarrassed, not when she started riding him again. Even through their clothes the sensation made him mindless until he was driving his hips up into her, desperately trying to create more pressure and friction.
Her breaths started to come in pants and Kaito leaned forward, rubbing his nose along hers just to feel those breaths—the evidence of her desire on his face as well as his dick.
All he wanted to do was taste her – the poison would be worth it.
Because he knew that sharp sting was exactly what she really tasted like, and he was the only one who hadn’t gotten to devour her. Kaito sank his teeth into her jaw, holding the bone with enough force her hips stuttered, and a little cry left her lips.
This was his though, this pleasure he’d let her take, the sharp sweetness of her skin.
His teeth ached to draw blood, but Kaito held very still, resisting the urge to make another mark on her face.
“Do it,” she whispered, reaching down to unbuckle his pants.
Kira took him out and started stroking so hard and fast there was nothing he could do but fall apart underneath her, teeth digging into her jaw but never breaking the skin.
“Such a good boy,” she murmured, using his shirt to wipe the cum from her hand. “But next time you’ll taste me.”
The praise and the orgasm made him fucking stupid. Kaito licked the mark on her jaw and breathed her in, wanting to hear what else she was willing to tell him. Would she let him know how good he felt when he was fucking the shit out of her?
Would those blue eyes tell him everything he wanted to hear?
Fuck, she’d gotten into his head so deep Kaito didn’t think he’d ever be rid of her
