#Review – Willows in the End: Book One in the Thrilling Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Series (The End Saga – 1) by C.L. Zelle

Willows in the End: Book One in the Thrilling Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Series (The End Saga - 1)

 

They’re all dead.

Now, as my own body decides whether to live or die, I replay my entire life over and over in my mind. No longer do I want it to end, something has changed in me. Somehow, through all of this, I’ve found a will to go on, even if it’s in darkness. For the first time since I’ve been alive, I want to live.

Gideon says my scars will fade with time, but they don’t bother me. As if their absence would change what happened. They’re a badge of honor, reminding me what I went through, how brave I was, and that I made it out. That I can heal. If anything, these scars remind me every day that I’m still alive, and that things can change.

And they will.

My name is Grace Anne Vincent. I took the world, the people in it, for granted. I didn’t realize how precious my life was until someone turned off the lights, stripped it away from me. Until the men with needles came. They stole it all, leaving nothing but monsters, darkness, and death in their wake.

But I’m getting stronger every day. And though Gideon has his dark side, he’s growing stronger, too. We’ll make it together. We’ll create our own light, even if it’s hidden in the darkness.

Something out there beckons me, a desperate cry of a siren from the wreckage. It tells me to survive, to have hope. To love. To make things right again.

And I will.

This fully remastered, less explicit version of the story will appeal to those who don’t mind some adult content in their reading. Due to certain triggers, this series may not be suitable for everyone, and is advised for ages 18 and up. The second book in this series, Ravens in the End, will be available June 1, 2018.

Holy effing what?!?! It’s an epic journey! This is definitely not what I expected. Mind bending and maddening! 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.  Nothing slows down. The story is extremely action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  This is all about having your quality of life leveling up on a permanent f’ing opposite day with some giggly trips down memory lane. Grace is an amazingly flawed character that is continually growing emotionally and mentally. Gideon saved her and they have fallen in love. This author knows how to make the apocalypse romantic and STEAMY! As a matter of fact, all the characters that are introduced into this story are all fighting some sort of demon, their own apocalypse.  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!  I absolutely could not put this down. So many plot twists!  This series has made it to my top favorite, ever. If you like beautifully flawed characters with intense, action packed, and HAWT plots then you will love this just like I do. This author! SMH….LOL! I AM HOOKED! THIS IS MY ADDICTION!  This series is taking it to the next level.

Christina L. Rozelle is the author of the bestselling YA Dystopian Scifi series, The Treemakers Trilogy, which includes her groundbreaking debut, “The Treemakers,” and its sequels, “The Soultakers,” and “The Seeker’s Keys.” Hailed for its strong, believable, and relatable characters, original and complex plotting, and phenomenal world-building, The Treemakers Trilogy appeals to lovers of dystopian literature who are looking for something refreshing and new.

Book one, “Willows in the End,” is now available for preorder, and book two, “Ravens in the End,” will release on June 1.

Rozelle’s writing roots sprouted with poetry and prose in countless journals in her early years, continuing through her tumultuous teenage years, and well into her turbulent young adult life. Though her younger self dreamed of scribing non-fiction and poetry someday, when she discovered the magic in creating fiction she never looked back.

#WOTR18 #ReleaseBlitz #Review #Erotica #DarkRomance #Dark #Serial- Freed by Elena M. Reyes & N. Isabelle Blanco

Elena M. Reyes is our attending author.

Freed (Voyeur Book 5) (Voyeur Series)

They wanted this.
To strip us of our humanity. Devolve us back to our most basic forms.
They used our love for each other as the trigger.
Now, they’ve succeeded. They’ve turned us into something else.
Into creatures willing to spill all their blood, end-all their lives, in the hopes of finally being freed.
Even if we die in our attempt to escape, Noah and I are determined to take as many of them down with us as we can.
Before it’s all over, we will all bleed for their sins.
All of us.

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.

Goodreads

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!!

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 – 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.

#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.
