They wanted this.
To strip us of our humanity. Devolve us back to our most basic forms.

Review by Jordan

 

 

If haven’t read this series then you seriously don’t know what you are missing! I have devoured each and ever one of the books. Freed was one that I had desperately been awaiting. Is this the finale I wanted? NO! There are so many questions that I still have and so many more were created from reading this book. I love the characters and I have enjoyed their struggles as well as their realizations about their feelings for one another!

Elena M. Reyes was born and raised in Miami Florida. She is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.
As a small child, she was always intrigued by all forms of art—whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her first taste of writing came to her during her fifth-grade year when her class was prompted to participate in the D. A. R. E. Program and write an essay on what they’d learned.
Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world. She now resides in Central Florida with her husband and son, spending all her down time letting her creativity flow and letting characters grow

 

#Review #Dark #DarkDuet – Seduced in the Dark (The Dark Duet #2) by C.J. Roberts

Seduced in the Dark (The Dark Duet, #2)

BOOK TWO OF THE DARK DUET
The exciting, titillating, and action-filled conclusion to Captive in the Dark.

What is the price of redemption?

Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.

The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.

Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?

Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

Quote:
It seemed to Caleb, the nature of human beings revolved around one empirical truth: we want what we cannot have. For Eve, it was the fruit of the forbidden tree. For Caleb, it was Livvie.

Goodreads

Holy broken and ruined for all other men….Caleb is the Anti-hero you love and have no business loving and then….and then ..and then you find out EVERYTHING and then…then…then you break for him.  Seriously I cried for Caleb at time or two.  I had a lump in my throat for this ruined man.  This soul who falls in love with Livvie knowing he can’t have her.  She can’t be his no matter what.

This book picks up and Livvie is in FBI custody…yay she didn’t get sold buuuuut then we find out *Gasp* Caleb is not around.  We are having to listen to Livvie retell the story after the end of book 1.  We learn so much about Caleb and his desire for Livvie but also wanting to make his mentor happy. He is a hot, confused mess.  I mean how do you turn your back on your mentor, your savior when your vengeance is so close at Livvie’s cost???  Caleb has a lot to think about and also come to terms with about his and Livvie’s future.

The twists are so crazy in this book.  The betrayals are so epic in this book. I was BLOWN AWAY when the bombs start dropping and all the secrets are spilled.  Caleb and Livvie have a lot of drama to contend with IF they are to make it out alive and make it out alive together.

Seriously, Caleb……can we talk about him.  I cannot wait to read book 3 because I am dying to know his POV on everything Livvie shared with us because he says she was “kind” in her retelling.  I am certain Caleb isn’t all hearts and flowers but since he feels he doesnt serve her to begin with I think he will be a bit harder on himself in the long run of it all.  But *sigh* he loves her and that is all I need to know.

#review #Dark #TriggerWarnings – Captive in the Dark, Dark Duet Book 1 by CJ Roberts

Captive in the Dark (The Dark Duet, #1)

Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was.

Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him.

WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, and graphic violence.

I purchased this book.

Oh LAWD where do I begin?  Ok so I have had this book sitting on my kindle for years…yes plural YEARS.  Why?  Because it scared the ever-loving hell outta me, BUT I was curious.  So as the years have gone, I have dipped my toe into dark novels and finally got the balls to read Caleb. I had a whole cheering squad behind me…remember I am pathetic…..and sat down over Spring Break to be destroyed.  After reading it in a total binge session, I am glad to say Caleb isn’t AS BAD as I feared.  Don’t get me wrong he is a bad bad bad man, but he is the perfect Anti-Hero.  I mean we should not be rooting for a kidnapper and sex slaver to love you and yet I was.  I was wanting him to accept what his heart was telling him and let kitten go!!!

Caleb was sold for years in the sex slave industry.  He has no recollection of his life before the slavery started.  He has no memory of his REAL name.  All he knows is vengeance and his overwhelming need to assist his new ally, Rafiq.  The two are all for vengeance and take Livvie as their method of the perfect way in.

Livvie is just trying to get through her horrible life when help from an attractive stranger leads her to the hell she is currently in.  She is trapped in the dark unless her Master is near.  The conditioning, mental breaking of Livvie and the physical breaking of her is a fear we all have of these situations.  But like all Stockholmed survivors we look to Caleb, our Master, to provide comfort and support.

When the dynamic of the two changed, we see Caleb’s confusion.  How can he care about her feelings? Why is he calling her by her given name?  She is property and yet he cares for her?  Is that what he is feeling?  How can this happen to him, the controlled Master?  How can he think about throwing away all the years of care and training with his friend Rafiq for her???

Livvie is afraid of Caleb yet craves his attention.  She knows what his ultimate plan is, yet she chooses to become the seductress to thwart his plans.  Livvie is choosing to live and will do whatever it takes to survive this hell.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

YES!!  So much of this book….YYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!!!  I loved it and was cheering as Noah and Ivy got revenge against all that people who tortured them.  Is it wrong that I was eating popcorn and cheering?  Probably but would I change it?  Not even close!!  #TeamIvyAndNoah

SO if you are not present with the serial then you gotta stop and get current.  You need to read this book in order to know why popcorn is a necessity for this book.

Noah and Ivy are all dressed up and marched out for the “Final Act” for this depraved group of people.  What they see makes them realize this is a lot bigger then they originally suspected.  The couple are being leered at and bid on by the highest bidder for multiple different scenarios…..the yuck factor is super high.  #CreepyOrgieScenes

When Noah gets a change…BOOM it all starts to fly.  Shots are being fires, Help is here to save our couple but they get separated.  Once they are separated, they BOTH face down their fears…the person who caused a lot of the mind games to them during their captured time.  I should NOT have been happy to see the people being murdered and yet I soooo was….LAWD Valerie, Agnes and Raoul……..these people are some kinda evil but the masked man….yeah……The scenes were tense and soooo awesome to read…..God does this make me a nut job??  Maybe I am now #ThanksLadies

I am super excited with a couple of surprise twists we are given in the book and I do kinda of wonder if MAYBE they might e revisiting the series with the way it ended????  I mean there is an open door there and I would be all for more Noah and Ivy!!

#Review #Dark #DarkDuet – Viole[n]t Obscurity (Violent #1) by Megan D. Martin

Aaron Whitman is my patient. That’s all.
The murky words in his skin don’t call to me.
His twitchy gray eyes don’t make me desire more than I should.
He’s my patient.
I’m his psychiatrist, Dr. Adeline Violet.
I’m in control.
I’m fine.
Why are you worried?
I can help him. I can cleanse his sadistic tendencies.
He’s my patient. Don’t you know?
Maximum security Ward Z at Silent River Psychiatric Hospital for Violent Criminals is our home.
He’s just my patient.

I promise.

*Viole[n]t Obscurity is a dark and twisted romance. It is the first book in a two part duology about Aaron and Adeline. Some of the content of this story may not be acceptable to all readers. Read at your own risk.

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

WTF did I just read.  It’s a crazy ass story and I FLOVED it …like HARD and I am flipping out that I have to wait until SUMMER to read the second part of the duet!!  Holy Shit Balls Batman!!  This book was hella crazy as allllll of Megan’s dark books are.  They are so complex and twisted and just WHUT!!!!!!!!

Dr. Violet is the new psych doctor on Ward Z. This is pretty much where all the Charles Masons are going.  These people are not getting out…EVAH!!!  But she is young and hopeful that she can make a difference.  She has limited staff, but she knows she can get this stuff done.  She befriends one staff member, Richard who tries to help her stay away form the darkness that is inside of her and starts to shine when she pends more and more time with Aaron.

Aaron is hella crazy but at the same time I LOVE HIM.  He loves hard and is so loyal to the people he trusts.  The conversations between Aaron and Violet start to consume each of them.  Their professional relationship starts to dance and then definitely crosses over inappropriate very quickly.  But I was falling more and more in love with Aaron and wondering more and more for Violets sanity.  I guess when you love someone who is nuts you tend to become nuts yourself???

The last couple of chapters shit goes down in a huge way.  Secrets are spilled, and holy hell does Aaron come back to the crazy side of life even crazier after the way Violet misuses his trust.  People I am dying to know what is going to happen to them….DYING!!  Plus I wanna see the body count total because these two are going to definitely leave a lot of bodies in their wake.

#WOTR18 #Review #Paranormal #Dark #Erotic – The Angel’s Divide (Beyond Blood Series Book 2) by Christine Alvarez

The Angel's Divide (Beyond Blood Series Book 2)

A Family Divided
With family comes different shades of insanity, a lesson I’m learning more and more these days. I’m torn between honoring the family name I grew up with and settling for the monster I was born to be. Love, duty and lies have cemented a divide within a family that was never meant to be. I may very well be that divide.

A Life Divided
It’s a balancing act. An exercise in right from wrong, human from monster, something that has taken my entire life to master. A divide that is becoming harder to manage. I don’t want to be that monster, but she is becoming stronger and stronger, eating away at my humanity every day. How much longer can I hold her back?

A Heart Divided
Both Lorcan and Alistair own me, whether it be my heart, body or soul. Both are my mates, each bound to a necessary part of me. No matter how much I try to deny it I’m not sure I could survive without either of them. Lorcan appeals to my human side, keeping me alive, sane and satisfied, while Alistair brings out the monster, along with the dark pain and pleasure. I want to cut my ties with the devil, but will the price an old witch demands be worth the sacrifice of losing both? Or worse, myself?

Goodreads

Amazon

I purchased this book at an author signing when the author told me all about this series.  I had never read anything from her and the whole paranormal, dark and erotica thing had me sold.

I didn’t think it could get any better and then BANG Book 2.

The book picks up right at the ended so be ready for the news about Jane, Kendrick, Alistair, Angel and Lorcan plus our favorite beeotch aunt.

This book we really see Angel struggling.  She is struggling with her humanity.  She is struggling with her need for the pain Alistair gives her.  She is struggling with the care and devotion she gets from Lorcan.  The girl is a mess then you throw in the guilt for Jane’s new situation…..OY VEY.

This book our girl is done taking it from everyone and decided to take the horse by the reigns.  She finally trusts her dad to help her out of a situation with Lorcan by her side, but can she really trust daddy dearest???  I mean I felt bad with the story he tells us about his love for Angel’s mom buuuuut yeah…hrmmmmm.  He had ulterior motives I totally thing.

The book zooms and before you know it Angel is left battling for her life and her humanity.  I can not wait for the next book because its going to be a wilder ride I can totally see.

I am Christine Alvarez, a mother of four spectacular hoodlums and married to my other half. Writing has been a passion my entire life and until now becoming an Author was only a dream. I am a stay at home mother which never leaves a dull moment. I am not a sports enthusiast and quite frankly I’m probably allergic to exercise.
My guilty pleasures are Dr. Pepper and chocolate. They have both been at my side many of nights as I write. I write anything from paranormal romance to dark erotica. You will probably find as I release more books that my work may cover anything from the happily ever after endings to the dark and broken ending and pretty much all the areas in between

#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 – 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.

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.

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.
