Book review: Preach ~ Stylo Fantôme

Book review: Preach ~ Stylo Fantôme

Sociopaths… What happens when two meet and show an interest in each other? Preach is the second book in the ‘Church Duet’ and continues the story of Emma and Church. If you had hopes they would become less crazy after the ending of Church, think again. This is a Stylo Fantôme story and disturbed people are her specialty… I love […]

Book review + excerpt: Deeper ~ Jennifer Michael

Book review + excerpt: Deeper ~ Jennifer Michael

Deeper is my first book by Jennifer Michael. The blurb of a book is a huge part of my decision to pick a book (or not), and the blurb of Deeper intrigues me. Based upon the description I had certain expectations about the story, and to my surprise it took a different direction. I thought it would be a BDSM […]

Book review: Torrid ~ Nikki Sloane

Book review: Torrid ~ Nikki Sloane

Last year Nikki Sloane surprised me with Sordid. Her books are erotic, but Sordid had another, much more dark element, I loved it. Torrid gives us the story of Vasilije, one of the side characters of Sordid. He’s a twisted guy with a warped way of thinking, but I like him. “He’s my…” My partner? My muse? My… other half? […]

Book review: Damnable Grace ~ Tillie Cole

Book review: Damnable Grace ~ Tillie Cole

Damnable Grace is already the fifth book in my favorite biker series; ‘the Hades Hangmen Series’ by Tillie Cole. Have you ever wondered how it is to grow up in an isolated cult that has such different morals than our own society? Damnable Grace tells the heartbreaking story of Phebe – who’s born into The Order – and AK, the […]

Book review: Parasight ~ E.S. Carter

Book review: Parasight ~ E.S. Carter

Parasight is the second book in E.S. Carter’s ‘the Red Order Series’. Like the first book it’s nothing like the author’s sweet other books, it’s brutal and horrific. In the previous book we’ve met Grim, a terrifying guy with a hunger for killing, preferably the sick people preying on the innocent. Parasight gives us his story. “I’m strong enough for […]

Book review + excerpt: Riot ~ Tillie Cole

Riot is the fourth and last book in ‘the Scarred Souls Series’ by Tillie Cole and takes the reader back to the horrible world of human slavery at its worst; underground fighting and sex slaves. Throughout the previous books we’ve learned about the cruel Master and his Blood Pit, Riot takes us there through the eyes of 152 (her brother’s […]

Book review: Dirty ~ Belle Aurora

Book review: Dirty ~ Belle Aurora

Once upon a time I discovered Romance books and I fell in love with the sweet, erotic and sometimes naughty stories. And then came Raw. Raw introduced me to a whole new subgenre of romantic books; dark love stories. Raw was different from any other book I read; it was gritty, it made me cringe, but I still loved it. […]

Book review: Feyness ~ E.S. Carter

Book review: Feyness ~ E.S. Carter

E.S. Carter, what the heck have you done with E.S. Carter? I know this author for her sweet books like Three and Thirteen, but with Feyness she goes a completely different way. The book is anything but sweet – yes there is love, but it’s love with a dark edge. However, I have enjoyed reading this book and I’m curious […]

Book review: Ravage ~ Tillie Cole

Book review: Ravage ~ Tillie Cole

Ravage is the latest book in Tillie Cole’s ‘Scarred Souls series’. Like the other stories in the series it’s raw, gritty and brutal, but written in the style I love the author’s books for. Ravage tells the story of Valentine (194) and Zoya. “I became a ghost in the night. I became the deliverer of death. I was torture. I […]

Book review: Deep Redemption ~ Tillie Cole

Book review: Deep Redemption ~ Tillie Cole

One of my favorite MC series is ‘The Hades Hangmen Series’ by Tillie Cole. Given the shared past of the heroines of the books, it isn’t a series for the faint of heart; horrific deeds are done to innocent girls. One of the side characters in the previous books is Cain aka Rider, who played a dubious role throughout the […]
