Ever since the birth of his daughter, Nalla, Zsadist has been regressing further and further into the life he led before he met Bella, his beautiful shellan. He has been waking up in cold sweats due to nightmares from his past, hasn't made love to his wife, and won't hold his baby girl, for fear that he might hurt her. While Nalla's presence had consisted of only joy and excitement in first couple months of her life, now it seems to be driving the couple apart. Bella is afraid that she and Nalla just may need to leave her hellren.
But then Zsadist gets injured on a mission to fight the lessers and because he hasn't been feeding from Bella, almost loses his life. Could this near-death experience create the motivation to pull this couple back together? Or has the gap between them spanned too far for redemption?
I read Father Mine as part of the Compendium an amazing friend of mine surprisingly gifted me. Z and Bella are two characters I’ve always loved, so it could have only been a pure pleasure for me to read a novella about them. And now that Nalla is part of the lovely family picture, how could I not be anything but ecstatic? Of course, to reach happiness we usually need to follow a long and hard road, and this couple makes no exception . . . Then, it wouldn’t really be Z and Bella if everything went smooth, right? Also, the beauty of Z is getting into you every time, making you inevitably cry first—possibly more than once—and letting you literally melt for him later—surely more than you think.
I simply loved this novella, it was emotional, sweet and it had a special tenderness of its own. Another gorgeous story in a series with plenty of outstanding plots and awesome characters!
