Hansel #4 by Ella James
They were captives who shared a wall, and cut a hole in it so they could hold each other's hands. Until he killed their captor, Mother. Then he disappeared, and as the world swooped in to save the Children locked away in Mother's house, the girl called Gretel became...lost. No breadcrumbs.
Finding Hansel, years later, is the shock of Leah McKenzie's adult life. Finding out how far she'll go for him - that's no surprise.
Leah's given Hansel - Lucas, he says it is - every piece of herself. And he's been both cruel and kind.
What they share is dangerous.
What they feel is dark.
Their history is twisted.
Their hearts already broken.
And that's before the secrets are revealed.
Wow! This 4th book of Ella James' book Hansel is hot, sexy and heart-wrenching! From the beginning of the story Ella has a way of capturing the reader, drawing you in and keeping you hooked. This book was everything I was hoping for. The characters will tug at your heart in a way that makes you feel part of the story.
Lucas, aka Hansel has finally gotten what he wanted, but he is so haunted by his past! Leah, aka Gretel has such an optimistic view on everything, even though she's been through hell and back. Loving Lucas, even though they met under terrible circumstances, he is all she wants.
This story made me so sad. It tugged at my heart and left me feeling awful and then rejoicing all at the same time. Ella James is magnificent in the way her words flow. I love her fairy tale books. This one definitely did not disappoint. I an honestly say that I love everything this author creates. I can't wait to see what's next! Thanks for rocking my world, Ella!

My pulse quickens as I see a long lump on the bed farthest from where I’m standing.
For a moment, I think I hear him talking in his sleep.
For a moment, I think of sliding under the covers with him, just to enjoy the irony. We’re sleeping with a wall between us tonight, but instead of a hole he sawed, there’s a door he left propped open. For once, we can actually reach each other.
But he said he didn’t want your company.
I exercise my will power and tip-toe slowly around the hotel bed, so I’m standing right beside his sleeping form.
At least I think he’s sleeping.
His cheek is pressed against the pillow, and his unhurt hand is curled into a fist up near his chin.
I’m fighting the urge to touch him, battling the forbidden desire to lean down close enough so I can brush my lips over his damp hair. From where I’m standing, I can smell the shampoo he used. It’s fruity; sweet. It’s so at odds with his big, rugged body. As if to make me want him more, he shifts his hips a little, and the sheet covering his chest slips down, revealing huge shoulders, smooth, hard pecs, and the upper portion of his incredible abs.
That’s a lot of muscle there.
I take a step back, feeling exhilarated because he’s beautiful, and I’m a bad, bad girl for sneaking in to watch him sleep.
That’s when his hand shoots out and grabs my wrist.
I let out a little cry as he jerks me toward the bed. Then he’s sitting up. His hands close around my waist and I’m dragged atop his sheet-covered lap. He strokes up from my hips, over my sides, and over my bare shoulders, tickling my neck before he gets a firm grip on my face.
“What did I tell you,” he hisses, “about coming into my room?”
