For twelve long years, I’ve breathed, I’ve bled for only one thing…
Four men took something from me, something which can never be replaced. That one night changed the lives of so many and taught me that monsters are real.
But I also learned I’m the biggest monster of them all.
Nothing and no one will stand in my way of redemption because those men…they’re now three. The fourth—he is the reason they call me Bullseye. They can run, but sooner or later, I’ll find them, just as I did with their friend. They’re already dead…they just don’t know it yet.
My plan was simple until I met her. A fierce tiger who had the power to break my heart. Lucky for me…she can’t break what’s already broken. I am no longer a man because the world is a jungle, and we’re all just animals—ready to tear one another apart.

“It’s as if heaven and hell are fighting their own personal battle, wanting to conquer the other side.”
I love me some Monica James books and her latest one does not disappoint. Bullseye is the first book in The Monsters Within Duet and it’s a mind-blowing mix of all things raw, gritty and twisted. While I personally wouldn’t consider this book super dark, it does walk that line and crossed over into depraved several times. Yes please, the more depraved and twisted the better! We definitely get a big ole mindfuck throughout this book from the very start to that crazy…I never saw it coming cliffhanger of a finish. Like what the hell was that? I finished the book yesterday and am still not quite sure what happened at the end but I do know I loved it and I need more now!
“My story doesn’t end with Prince Charming saving the princess and living happily ever after with her because I killed that fucking prince.”
Cody was just a kid when he snuck off to a party to impress a girl and what was supposed to be a night of fun turned out to be the worst night of his life when an unspeakable tragedy happens. He loses the person he loves most and so begins his obsession with revenge. Cody was no longer and Bull was all that was left.
“I’ll forever be imprisoned to the day I picked up a gun and shot a man in cold blood. However the only regret I have…is that I got caught.”
It’s been twelve long years since Bull has been out in the real world. Now free from the bars that confined him but not from the monsters in his head, his only goal is to execute his plan for revenge. Nothing can get in his way. Not even the beautiful and talented dancer he can’t seem to get out of his head. He knows he needs to stay away since she’ll only be collateral damage but he’s having a hard time sticking to what he knows he should do as far as Tigerlily is concerned. And Lily knows Bull is trouble. She can sense it from the first moment he walks into the Pink Oyster and comes to her rescue. Her draw to him is just as powerful as his is to her. To say there is sexual chemistry between these two from the start would be an understatement. It’s like a goddamn explosion going off constantly between these two. It was so damn hot I could barely stand it. Can their demons play nice with each other or will Bull’s need for revenge continue to consume him until there’s nothing left?
“I like the thought of seeing you beg…seeing you bound…seeing you bleed.”
I loved how raw and all around gritty this story was. I loved how even though Bull thought he wasn’t worthy, Lily saw so much in him. I absolutely loved his character and all the layers there were to the mysterious man he was. Lily was also pretty badass. She loved hard and was loyal. She worked her ass off and was proud of who she was no matter what others thought. This book had a ton of suspense and craziness and then that cliffhanger? I can’t wait for more!
“His darkness dances with mine.”
