#Review The Devil’s Wife by @gemmajames80

tdw cover

No one claims marriage is easy. That is especially true for Kayla Sutton, because she’s married to a sadist who takes the meaning of the word “dominance” to new heights. But Kayla should have known. She fell for his wicked ways after he blackmailed her, stayed after he kidnapped her, went back to him after he almost destroyed them both with his unpredictable fury.

Then she married him.

A year has passed since Kayla agreed to love, honor, and obey. Day after day, she survives his volatile nature. On her knees at his feet, underneath him between the sheets, bent over the bed to receive the fiery lash of his belt. But she’s beginning to miss the one thing she promised Gage Channing when she married him: her freedom.

NOTE TO READERS: THE DEVIL’S WIFE is a continuation of THE DEVIL’S KISS SERIES. For a better reading experience, please begin with the Devil’s Kiss before reading the Devil’s Wife. For mature audiences only. Includes explicit and disturbing subject matter that may offend some readers.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

The Devil’s Wife by Gemma James
Gage & Kayla
HOLY FUCKING HELL!!
5 Stars

So, this one blew my fucking mind! It’s taken me this long to write this review! I thought I might fucking smash something if I had to talk about Gage to early! Gemma, girl… you really outdid yourself with this one! You have captured a total asshole alpha in all his splendor! I can hardly believe it, but this book actually made my blood pressure go up! Wow!

Gage Channing is an egotistical asshole with a major control issue. I have never been so fucking pissed off at a character in all my life! He’s mean, he’s selfish, he’s offensive, he’s condescending, and he’s just enough alpha and sexiness to wipe all that spitefulness away. How Gemma still manages to make me attracted to this fuck, I’ll never know! I want to grab hold of his lapel, rip his mug up to mine, and scream in his fucking face until he agrees to be kind to Kayla. Jaysus Fekking Croist!!!

Kayla is a fucking doormat. A well-dressed doormat, but a doormat all the same. I loved her for the way she handled Gage in some circumstances and I hated her for the times she folded when I know she could have prevailed. She always has that power, but very rarely uses it. This in itself drove me bat-shit crazy! So, I’ll leave you with this… I loved to hate her!

The supporting character cast was very small… Ian… God, Ian… what to say! I love him and I wish I knew more about what became of him. Is he ok? Is he alive? My heart can’t take much more of this! Katherine! You gotta be fist fucking me here! This would have been the straw that broke the camels back for me… Total jaw dropping moment! Simone is a great friend of Kayla’s but I’m afraid doesn’t do enough for her. I know there’s only so much she CAN do, but jeeze… I think she could have done more, but that’s just me!

So, what can I say! This story has been so compelling since the first installment that once I pick it up, I can’t put it down. The characters are very commanding and heartbreaking, but sometimes make me see red! The dialogue flows and feels natural and makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! The entire book had me on the edge of my seat, constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. It’s has plenty of plot twists and turns and keeps you engaged from cover to cover.

#Review – Dark Notes by @pamgodwinbooks #TwinsieApproved

28435457

They call me a slut. Maybe I am.
Sometimes I do things I despise.
Sometimes men take without asking.

But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan.
With one obstacle.

Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take.
He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note.
When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything.
I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

He’s my obsession, my master, my music.
And my teacher.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Dark Notes by Pam Godwin
Emeric & Ivory
A MUSICAL CONUNDRUM OF SINFUL PROPORTIONS
5 STARS

I loved it! I can’t stop this tingling feeling I have in my body just thinking about these two beautiful characters. I think every time Pam publishes a book, I secretly go bonkers inside! In my heart.. I know it’s going to be good, I know I’m going to fall in love with her characters, and I know it’ll be nothing like her previous work! Dark Notes is beautiful in every sense. It’s arousing. It’s amusing. And it’s got an uber dark storyline. Mmmm, my fave!

Emeric Marceaux is the teacher! The teacher from hell! If you cross him, watch out. He never forgets, nor does he forgive. He’ll have dirt on you in two seconds flat, so just beware. I liked him in the beginning. He was demanding and audacious, yet there was something about him that kept me from falling completely in love with him right away…. I guess I just needed a little Ivory to smooth out his rough edges and make him lovable for me.

Ivory Westbrook. Wow, this girl was amazeballs! I want to be her when I grow up. Although if I had to go through half the shit she went through I probably would have died before I could have reached my 18th birthday. Daily turmoil and this chick kept her chin held high. She never lost site of her prize. The prize may have changed a time or two, but she never gave up. I. Love. Her.

The supporting character cast wasn’t too large. We have villains and more villains. Bwahahaha. Just kidding. Let’s see there was Ivory’s fellow students who seemed to be semi ok if you don’t count the ones paying her to do their homework. Those fuckers are jerks! Ivory’s brother and the brother’s friend Lorenzo… holy hell, these two need a high five, in the face, with a chair! And Emeric’s parents… Not much dialogue, for these two but their actions spoke volumes.

This was of course excellent! What book has Pam ever written that isn’t excellent? None! The storyline drew me in before I ever opened the book. The teasers sold me on this book! The characters were powerful and intoxicating, I fell for them immediately. The dialogue flowed very effortlessly and felt natural. The pacing was perfect and kept me glued to my kindle. Pam created just the right amount of tension throughout, and the climax was superb. Wonderful story Pam! I loved it!
