#REVIEW – The Director by Lily White

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I feel like every time Lily writes a book, she writes them specifically for me. And every time she writes a book, she probably sits at her computer and wonders just how she can mess people up.

This book is probably the most brutal she’s written. Not for the mind f*ckery but for the graphic content itself. Girls are taken and used to please the dark twisted minds of people who get off on snuff films. Oh dear, right?

We meet Emma who has to make a choice. She makes a choice that surprises the director and ends up being used in a way that I don’t know how anyone could survive. Although this book has some graphic content, and by graphic, I do mean, sleep with your lights on and lock your doors at night, ladies, there is an underlying romance brewing.

Ethan. The Director. Holy crap. I thought Lily’s Master Aiden was bad. This guy is evil on a whole other level cause he doesn’t actually do the vile acts. He just directs. I don’t know what’s worse. He’s like Jigsaw of the porn industry.

Bonus: Lily threw me in as a girl who gets captured. And man, what a way to go. I have a phobia of the dentist and she used that to her advantage. I’ll never look at a dentist chair the same way ever again.

#Review – Emancipation (Pen Pals and Serial Killers #1) by Jo Michaels

Emancipation (Pen Pals and Serial Killers #1)

 

Tobias Butler has been sitting on death row since being sentenced for a gruesome murder in 2007. Bored out of his mind, he decided to apply to the online penpal program in 2012. It’s a pleasant distraction—nothing more, nothing less—for three years, until he’s contacted by a beautiful, smart young lawyer named Jess. She’s convinced he’s innocent and wants to see him freed. As they organize their attack on the judicial system, he wonders how she plans to get his conviction overturned—because he’s guilty, and he knows it. Jess is desperate to release him—and he’s desperate to feel his hands squeeze the life out of her once she does.

Plus, an exciting preview of Incarcerated by Inger Iversen

 

Goodreads

 

Oh holy hell! What a mindf**k! This is one dark and twisted read. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time trying to figure out what the angle is. I just couldn’t get it figured out. Then when it seems like I’ve got it figured out…BAM! PLOT TWIST! This is definitely a psychological suspenseful thriller. This is told from Tobias’s point of view. He is a vile human who is a serial killer. He is guilty as sin! He is currently on death row and just going through the motions of prison life. To pass the time he became part of the prison pen pal program. He is contacted by all types of crazy organizations and people. But one day he gets a letter from Jess. She is a gorgeous young lawyer and she thinks she can get all of his charges dropped. He then becomes very curious and works to reel her in. Charming and good looking with a smooth tongue….and he has her hooked. The whole time I found myself yelling at Jess like WTF are you doing?!?! Run away! Why are you still entertaining him? OMG!  This is very graphic as this is being told from a serial killer’s point of view. Like, make my skin crawl graphic. It was a rush reading this. My heart didn’t stop pounding. Absolutely effing intense! There are no warm and fuzzies in this story. And the end….well, the end is flipping mind blowing. I was absolutely blown away. And when it was over I had to just sit and figure out what it is I just finished reading. If you need something out of your normal comfort zone, this is it. A definite must read!

Jo Michaels is…

Hi, I’m Jo. Let’s forget all the “Jo Michaels is blah, blah, blah” stuff and just go with it. I’m a voracious reader (often reading more than one book at a time), a writer, a book reviewer, a mom, a wife, and one of the EICs at INDIE Books Gone Wild. I have an almost photographic memory and tend to make people cringe at the number of details I can recall about them and/or their book(s). My imagination follows me around like a conjoined twin and causes me to space out pretty often or laugh out loud randomly in completely inappropriate situations.

I have a degree in graphic design, and my journey to the end was one few students who begin that program ever complete. However, this was one case where my memory and OCD tendencies helped me. Graduation was one of the most amazing days of my life. But, my most amazing day was when my now husband proposed. Every little girl dreams of being Cinderella someday, and he pulled off the proposal of fantasies.

At the risk of sounding cliche, I’m going to let it out there and say how much I absolutely adore the man I’m married to. Along with my children, he’s my whole world.

I’ve lived in Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia, but I’ve had my feet in almost every state. Traveling is something I adore, and have plans to someday see the Mongolia I’ve written about in Yassa.

One of my favorite things is hearing from fans! You can find me on social media most any day of the week. Connect! I’d love to hear from you.

#REVIEW – Illusions of Evil by Lily White

It’s what he said to me across his altar, what he demanded so that I would be pure. In the moment he blessed me with his virtue, I was no longer the woman I’d once been. I was Eve. His light. His salvation. His bridge to Heaven’s gate. I failed him because my faith was not strong enough. He punished me for not giving in. Resisting temptation is never easy. Not when his hands, his teeth, his heat and hunger were the greatest of my sins.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

I think every time Lily writes a new story, she has every intention of ripping out my soul. It’s like she makes that her personal goal. This is a bit dramatic but once you read this story, you will probably feel the same way.

What can I say about the first book in this duet? It’s intense. Page turning. Gripping and jaw dropping.

Lily knows I’m in love with her boy Joseph from her book Joseph Fallen. I always thought she couldn’t top him with her bad guys but she does and she does it well. Elijah is something else. He’s the true epitome of evil and I can’t wait to read more about him and find out just how dark and twisted he truly is.

Jacob has some issues. He likes to think that he doesn’t but he really does. After an accident, he becomes a priest and thinks everything is all fine and hunky dory. Well, insert Elijah, and Jacob’s faith is tested. Will he fall?

Also, I like Eve. I really like her. I feel bad for her. She drove me nuts at times much like she did Jacob but it’s not her fault. You’ll have to read to find out why.

This is by far Lily’s best work to date and I can’t wait to read more. This story is nothing like I’ve ever read.

Blurb

Deceased.
Gone.
Someday to become a distant memory.
They’re dead and I don’t feel an ounce of remorse.
Instead, the relief is almost instant. No longer will I feel like scum because my heart lies with him—My Noah.
The voice might’ve forced my hand, but in the end, I’ll always choose my heart. I’ve lived within my fear of losing him and that’s now been stripped from me.
We’ve been forced to say goodbye to our past and I’m embracing my future with both hands.
I’m no longer afraid.
I’m pissed.
They want us broken, but instead they’ve unleashed a beast unwilling to submit. I’m an animal determined to save her man.
To live.
I no longer care who gets in my way or what I have to do. I will have that man . . .
And one day, we will both escape.

WARNING: This story isn’t for everyone. Caution. 18+

 
Twinsie Jo’s Review:
Holy balls on a cracker!
Elena M. Reyes and N. Isabelle Blanco are back and hotter and more intense than ever. Our poor Ivy and Noah are still being tortured and tested. The captor is having fun breaking them and molding them into her own little puppets. I love this insane little series but I really enjoyed that you got to see more of Noah and Ivy’s past in this book and how they actually met.
This book is hot. Insane. Delicious. Dark dark and more dark. Now that we possibly know who the captor is, I’m excited to see how Ivy and Noah will make it out of this situation.

Summary:
That bloody bitch thinks she’s the biggest villain here . . .
And I’m going to let her keep thinking that.
She thinks she knows how far I’ll go to save Ivy.
In reality, she has no fucking clue. I’d kill for her.
My humanity recedes while a demon is born. I want their blood on my hands.
The stakes are beyond high, trapped in this sex dungeon with no way out. Our loved ones are being threatened while we’re being forced to endure.
But none of that matters to me as much as the endgame.
I’ll be leaving here once I take the two things that matter most:
I’ll be claiming my woman.
And once I find our way out, I’ll be taking our captor’s life too.
She thought she could threaten my girl.
I’m about to show her just how wrong she is.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

SAW meets Sex. Holy crap.

Noah and Ivy are back again, trying to survive this situation they’ve been put in for the mere pleasure of others. They need to make choices, they need to behave, they also need to fight.

The woman, the voice making all of the demands, is outright evil and vile. She forces them to the point of breaking. And man do they ever break.

That last scene…the tension, the finality that makes them explode, wow. One of the hottest and most intense scenes I have read in a very long time.

These books may be short but they are written very well. And these ladies are the Masters of chemistry.

I’m already anxiously waiting the next part.

 

 

 

#REVIEW – Taken by Elena M. Reyes and N. Isabelle Blanco

I was drugged.
Now, I’ve woken up in a dark, luscious room.
A deviant playground.
I’m not alone.
The person that was drugged and taken with me is here, too.
My confident.
Someone that I had come to see as a brother.
My best friend.
Suddenly, there’s a voice coming through the speakers, telling us we’ve both been chosen to die.
The only way out? Do everything we’re told to do.
This person wants to watch us. They want to be entertained. As she says, “I want to see you come.”
It’s simple: either we sleep together, or die.

WARNING: This story isn’t for everyone. Please read with caution. Contains graphic violence and explicit situations some might find disturbing. Read at your own risk.

 

Twinise Jo’s Review:

 

Um…okay…wow.

When Twinsie Angie said to me “Hey JoJo, it’s hot and it’s like SAW”, I was sold.

Ivy and Noah are taken and told to do…well…anything the “voice” tells them to do. They have to listen or else. Really? Crazy right?

With Ivy and Noah being best friends, he will do anything to keep her safe. Feelings come to light that neither of them knew the other had.  The “voice” knows them. She knows things about them that are supposed to be kept secret. Maybe they don’t even know it about themselves.

This story is short but it packs a punch. These authors can write some of the best tension I have ever read. Like seriously. The build up is off the charts hot. I thought my kindle was going to explode.

#Review – Dysphoria and Grace: The Night Blind Saga #1 by Christina L. Rozelle

34376066

 

“How?” She swipes at a few stray tears. “How do you . . . not let it break you?”
“You look it straight in the black, evil eyes and tell it you won’t be broken so easily. And you get up and keep moving. It’s what I’ve done my whole life, with everything. Whatever it is, you let it make you stronger, okay? Because the alternative road is an even darker one, I promise.”

Twenty-year-old orphan, Grace Vincent, is damaged beyond repair. She’s had a shit life, and with the state of the world, things aren’t getting any better. With crime on the constant rise, and all licensed civilians age sixteen and up armed, it’s no wonder she has a pet name for her 9 mm, Suki.

While attending the slummiest community college in Selam, Texas, Grace still lives at home with her adoptive parents and their “miracle” baby, but only for a few more months until she graduates and they buy her a new car. She smokes and drinks a little too much, loses herself in her music, and to keep things interesting, she’s falling hard for her cute and sexy best friend, Eve. (Who knew she liked girls?)

But when the government imposes Martial Law, requiring civilians aged twenty-one and up to be vaccinated in an effort to eradicate violence, and things don’t go as planned, Grace is left to navigate a frenzied world while wrangling difficult realizations and regrets. With nothing else to lose, a decision must be made—fight and live, or surrender and die.

When Grace has lost all hope, two chance encounters prove there are secrets in Selam, Texas, lies about how the end happened, and hope for her yet, despite the insanity in her screwed-up mind. The world may have ended, but Grace’s new life has just begun.
“You can’t break someone who’s already broken. This, I know to be true.”

*Content Advisory/Trigger Warning/Notes*
Dysphoria and Grace/The Night Blind Saga is a dark apocalyptic romance series with some very steamy, sometimes rather dark F/F scenes, M/F scenes, and other mixes (later books in series). In these books you will find a buffet of language, gore, drug use, violence, assault/abuse, and a bunch of other stuff that could scar you for life. If you’re not willing to take that risk, please read ‘safer’ books. If you don’t ingest your literature occasionally (or often) on the edge, gritty, in the dark, and/or possibly in a random stairwell, this series may not be right for you.
*Recommended for readers 18+
*Not recommended for those with PTSD (though the main character herself suffers from PTSD, so… your call)
*Guaranteed HEA, no cliffhanger. 😉
*Book 2 releases this summer, and book three releases in the fall. There will be six books in the series, with the remaining three books due out next year. To be notified as soon as they become available, sign up for my newsletter here:
*If you have any questions about this series, or if you’d like to give me ungodly amounts of money for any reason at all, feel free to email me: Christina@ChristinaLRozelle.com
*If you’d prefer gritty, but cleaner (no sex), check out my best-selling YA Dystopian Scifi Horror series, “The Treemakers Trilogy.”

 

Goodreads

 

Oh the moon and stars! What an epic journey! This is definitely not what I expected. Be ready to be wrecked, and I mean this in the best possible way. This is a twisted ride into a new age zombie apocalypse. Grace is our main character and boy, has she had a past. This makes her extremely likeable and relatable. The setting is intense from jump. There are drugs, partying, witchcraft, and zombies…I mean, what more could you ask for? But lets be real for a moment. Grace has experienced hell growing up. She has come to terms and feels she is stronger for it. Her best friend is put into a similar situation. Grace is there for her but then all hell breaks loose. Then things get real. They are fighting for their lives, her little brothers life, and a new found friend, Gideon. And nothing slows down. The story is extremely action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I can’t really say anything else about the actual story but I literally contacted this author halfway through the book to talk about what happened. I was a mess reading this….but it was totally, absolutely worth it. Don’t let this discourage you. Once I hit this bump in the road the story just got better and better. I felt like I was right there and her shoes. This is an epic page turner and has made it to the top of my favorite reads. I. Can. Not. Wait. for the sequel. Bring it on! I am so ready!

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Disclaim by Pam Godwin
Matias & Camila
I WISH I WAS STILL READING IT! LOVED IT!
5 STARS

So, those of you that know me, know that one of my all time favorites is Pam Godwin. She could write an insurance manual and I’d be mesmerized by the contents! Her words are that fucking good! I intentionally read this slow so I could savor every damn word. I didn’t want it to end. Disclaim is thought provoking, captivating, and just down right brilliant. It will take your breath away and steal your soul.

This is not for the faint of heart so beware. No beautiful cut and dry love story here. This isn’t a BDSM tale of self discovery… more like the dark and dirty things in life we mostly turn a blind eye to. So, if your squeamish, then put this one back on the shelf until you are so inclined to pull up your big girl panties and read one of the best books of 2016.

Camila is one of those women so blinded by her own need to deliver justice to those who do wrong, that she doesn’t even hesitate to put herself in harms way if she believes the outcome will benefit her crusade. She strong, courageous, and cunning! She’s a former sex slave on a mission to take down any and all slave trading rings, but when she poses as a slave herself, things don’t go as planned. Let’s just say Camila is in for a rude awakening.

Matias is all kinds of alpha male. He’s lean, he’s mean, and he’s not taking no for an answer. He’s fighting his own battle that can only be described as hell on Earth. I seriously did not know whether to trust him or not. I’m still not certain! Get ready to fall in love with this man while your insides secretly hate him. No shit!

The supporting character cast is rather hefty. We get to see a small glimpse into Liv and Joshua’s lives, while giggling at Van and Amber a bit. The two characters that stood out the most for me were Tate and Nico. Tate is one of Camila’s best friends, but barely says two words through the entire book. His quiet persona intrigue me and I’m feeling that I need to know more about this beautiful silent giant. Now Nico, he’s Matias’ friends and he’s kind of a prick, but eh, he totally rubbed off on me.

So, this books is definitely going on my top 10 of 2016 no doubt about it. The storyline is exceedingly compelling and those characters, wow so commanding, so realistic. The dialogue flows with proficiency and the tension leading up to the climax is hauntingly superb. I love you Pam Godwin and your messed up mind! You make me wanna be a dirty girl!
