Excerpt

Tensley’s dark eyes turned to her. Eyes a dark, vivid night and he marched towards her, grasping her face into his large, powerful hands.

“Are you hurt?” Tensley asked when they were by themselves, his thumb skimming along her jaw down to her neckline.

“I’m fine, Tensley,” she whispered, squinting in the muted light. She caught his wrist and stroked it while he held her face still. She watched his vivid eyes, terrified, but fascinated by their darkness. “Are you okay? Your eyes are pitch-black. What’s wrong?” she asked, anxious.

He caught her eyes, that lethal stare making her stomach flip. “When we feel threatened, angry or…aroused…our eyes tend to turn black.”

Her cheeks grew hot and she knew he could feel the warmth on his palms. Those dark, vivid eyes continued to watch her closely.

“All I can smell is my scent on you, and seeing how he just had his hands on you, how you weren’t protected—” Tensley hissed, a snarl escaping him. “I want you so bad I can’t think straight. I want to bite your ivory neck—deep, deep enough to mark. Deep enough to protect you and make you unconditionally mine. Do you want me to do that, Molly?” he asked, his voice breathless with need. His eyes turned feral, he was a predator. A beast. And he could no longer resist his prey. “Would you bare my mark, Molly? Are you ready to be mine?” he finished, his voice low and raw.

“Yes,” she answered, her breathing uneven. She was ready for the beast. She was ready for it all.

His mouth found hers and it was vicious, impatient. Molly dug her fingers into his shoulder blades, before sliding them up to tug on his thick mane of hair. That only stirred the beast within him, and he grasped her hips, pulling her flush against his muscular, powerful frame.

His hands palmed her rear and with a sudden growl, he lifted her up. She gasped, breathless in his strong hold, but he caught her mouth again and swallowed her breaths, leading them to a desk.

He paused, his chest warring against hers and she stared down at him, stroking his heated cheeks, those demon eyes penetrating hers.

“Not here, not like this,” he breathed out. “We’re leaving.” He placed her down, her legs heavy and weak, and he grasped her hand, taking them out of the room.
Molly stayed close, feeling the heat roll off Tensley’s skin from the beast inside him. When she kissed his forearm before they left the empty hallway, he threw her a lethal, dangerous look, one that warmed her belly with desire and the knowledge of what was about to happen.

He’s going to mark me.

Tensley weaved through the crowd, shouldering some to make sure Molly moved through untouched. One man looked at her and Tensley snarled at him; his beast had taken over, the demon side controlling him to defend her, to warn others off.
As they approached the front doors, Molly’s heart raced. So close to freedom, to being outside of his culture and being ininto his arms.

“Tensley,” a voice called when they were nearly out.

Tensley stalled, and Molly followed his gaze to see his father approaching. Mr. Knight turned his focus on Molly and raised his chin, sniffing once.

He followed that with a curt nod of approval, and Tensley kept his route out of the party, rushing them down the front steps.

His arm snaked around Molly’s waist as he waved down a car.

“You want the beast?” he whispered into her ear.

“Yes.”

 “Good. Because he needs you.”

Review

A roller coaster ride of ups and downs, Body of the Crime was an intense follow up to Vein of Love.
Action and suspense woven throughout created a fast-paced and engaging story. We are finally getting to see a different side of these characters. I loved so much of this book but, like the first book, I struggled with many aspects as well. The fact that Tensley and Molly didn't become a serious couple until around sixty percent of this book and even then there were issues between them, caused a bit of a disconnect for me. Tensely's inability to commit, despite his feelings was growing tiresome. While I understood why he might feel this way, it was hard to still be dealing with this so far into the second book of the series. That being said, I very much enjoyed the evolution of Molly. While she may hold on to some insecurities, she's growing stronger and more confident in her abilities.
Scarlett filled this book with exciting and nerve wracking action, it was enthralling. Danger lurking around every corner had me on the edge of my seat. Amidst the intensity of the action, suspense, and uncertain relationship between Tensley and Molly, loyalties are tested and heartache is inevitable.
Scarlett, once again, leaves us eager for more!
