If you like revenge movies, read this book. If you liked “I Spit On Your Grave”, read this book. While of course this book is quite different than that movie, it definitely had the same raw, brutal, disturbing feel. And it was just as detailed too! If not more so, since this involves reading and using your own imagination.
The first version of Stella was released in an anthology that I myself was in as well. It was horror themed and packed with quite the punch! Then Emery added more to Stella and included a co-author as well. I remember messaging her when I finished the first version, wanting more!
This book is a continuation of Stella and how she gets revenge on the four guys who wronged her. And holy moly, does she ever get revenge! I think I read the whole thing with my eyes wide open! I do think one of the guys got off too easy if you ask me but she still got her revenge like she wanted. Pick up the book today to find out how!
Well this anthology is definitely not for the faint of heart. While I was one of the contributing authors, I decided to read the rest of the stories and wow. Just wow. I gasped so many times, I lost count. I’m a huge fan of horror movies and I love horror stories just as much but these stories blew me away.
If you love horror stories, this is definitely the anthology for you! I even messaged Emery LeeAnn after finishing her story, Stella, and asked her for more. If you loved the movie, “I Spit On Your Grave”, you’ll like this little book.
These stories are gruesome and have people getting revenge in the most depraved way possible.
Enjoy and happy reading! Oh and don’t forget to turn on the lights.
Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection!
The mafia never lets you go.
I thought I was safe, free, but I never expected to find myself locked in a cage.
I’m in his territory. His prison.
A fate worse than death awaits me if I can’t get away, so when the opportunity of salvation presents itself I grab it, even if I’m unsure if I can trust the hand I’m holding.
The only way out is through, exposing secrets and spilling blood.
Things aren’t how they appear. Nobody is what they seem.
Not even me.

The chains chafed my wrists, making me wish I was still in my cage. Though it lacked privacy at least I had a bed and wasn’t restrained with my arms above my head. But I was in Domenico’s domain. The small bedroom like area created from a previous office. There was a mattress with a blanket and a lamp, but those were the only creature comforts. The rest of the room retained both the look and smell of the rest of the decaying structure.
With no way to tell time, I wasn’t sure how long I’d been there. All I knew was that I was tired. Being held against my will caused spikes in my adrenaline, and the crash left me drained. They had lessened over the weeks, but there was an undercurrent of strife going on, and I feared what would happen if things got out of control.
I stared at the bed, wishing I was on it. All that did was cause the memories of him inside me to come crashing down. The absolute owning of my body for him and him alone. The way he made me come undone.
Feelings that I shouldn’t have with his touch, but I did.
Feelings I drowned in as he consumed me.
I am Domenico’s…for now.
And that was the thought that always sent questions spiraling out of control and a spike of fear to run through me.
I was just a caged bird. A pet awaiting a sentence bound to be more grim than any fairy tale horror.
I received this book for free from the author for an honest review.
WHAT!!! YES!! This book is hawt and sexy and hella good reads.
This book is what I love best about KI….sexy chemistry and amazing twists.
The fair tale for this book is Beauty and the Beast and it is a perfect reincarnation of the story. Ari and Dom are so yummy to read.
Essentially your girl Ella/Ari is kidnapped by the cappo names Domenico. His scarred face is what gives him the nickname the Beast or La Biesta. He is a take now, ask questions later kinda guy. They two fight this crazy attraction all the while they are dealing with everything around them making them stop to figure things out.
I love this story. I find I am really enjoying mafia stories more and more. This story has soooo much happening but the manipulation and betrayals are the best part of the story because we really can feel what the characters are feeling as the story happening.

She spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
First up…WHAT THE EFFFFF!!!! Ya’ll heed the trigger warning Imma lay at your feet…its crazy and takes you on a dark ride. Its emotional as EFF so be ready and don’t even tell me you weren’t warned.
I liked the twist of the doctor and Alice. I liked how messed up it was and how I was like DUDE I am messed up for liking this!! BUT YET I did!! LOL
It was a little bit slow but I think it needs to be slow so when you are in the thick of it you are like HOW DID I GET HERE!!! Plus HOW CAN WE GET OUT!!!! Ya know. It needs to set up slow and make you edgy. You need the slow burn for the whole cat and mouse of it to start. Lord when it starts you will a mess of anxiety!!! I know I was!!
Again, I am going to stress this book is not for everyone!! We see Alice being physically abuse and drugged plus the emotional abuse is just intense. So please don’t go into this book unless you are ok with it. I like some dark books but this was a bit darker then I like to go. However, I did enjoy it and am kinda worried about my mental status at this time!! LOL

I received this audio book from the author for an honest review.
Colton and Ally!!! What a great series! The emotional roller coaster we go on from book 1 to book 3’s ending was amazing!!
Colton, the sex club owner, meets Flower Shop girl, Ally, and wants to buy flowers for his clubs. Little naïve Ally strolls in and things soon change for the couple. The chemistry was amazing to read, and it really pops for you when you listen the audio. Of course, Ally has a dark secret as does Colton. The couple soon have some issues and book one ended on a cliffhanger…GASP!! Good thing I just kept on listening to the book to see what the heck happened next!
Now Imma admit Colton kinnnnda went a bit over the top with this plan to get Ally back. I mean flowers and dinners sure buuuut kidnapping…well I mean you do you Colton buuuut a girl might not be ok with it. Lucky for Colton, Ally is all in for his alpha ways and dominance. Now Ally’s secret is still not out yet but soon it explodes when and Colton and her are trying to keep it from being public. Ally becomes a bit desperate to stop her secret from coming out because she loves Colton and all his crazy dominance.

“Above all, be the HEROINE of your own life…” ~ Nora Ephron
Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can’t be broken to protect ourselves.
A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.
The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a ‘normal’ life, she has settled. She’s committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She’s found a way to be content.
Things aren’t always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it’s still a hollow shell.
He’s a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He’s Frank the ‘Tank’ Oleander, Haywood’s Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.
The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he’s forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he’s holding onto. The coma he can’t pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.
She’s sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?
My Review –
Life as the Hellions motorcycle clubs VPs daughter leaves Savannah “Sass” hasn’t always been easy she has always struggles withherself about wanting to feel safe and being away from the life that comes with the club and turning her back on family. Tank on the other hand is a playboy that doesn’t care what happens he’s ride or died for his club at no cost. When Sass and her best friend Doll are sent on a ride for their safety Tank ends up getting hurt and ends up in a coma. Once returned Sass visits him everyday and her new rebound of a douche boyfriend makes her choose her life with him or her family the only thing she ever knows. Making the hardest decision of her life Sass leaves the only thing she’s ever know behind and the wonder if Tank will ever wake up. Will the love Tank has for Sass be enough to pull him out of his coma, and get back to her? Will Sass find happiness outside of the only thing she’s ever know? Is forever long enough or nothing that will happen. I’m so in love with this series Chelsea just knows how to pull you in and make you fell like you are apart of this club and are family with them.
