Ashamed of the woman she allowed herself to become, Sloane Montgomery sets out to repair the self-inflicted damage done to her life. A new town holds her new beginning and when Leo Calloway arrives everything changes.

Captivated by Leo and his dark desires, Sloane wonders if her fascination with his dominance goes deeper than fantasy. Has she been seeking punishment to atone for the sins of her past all along? Though Leo’s brutal lust is what first enthralls her, the bonds of trust they form could have the power to heal her.

When the ties to her former life threaten to take hold of her again, the passion binding her to Leo may be the key to her ultimate release.

angies review

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

Ok so to start this review I gotta say I don’t know if I wanna cry or throat punch someone for the hurt that my heart is feeling right now.  My tummy is upset and I am just not in a good emotional place!!  Thanks KATE!!!!  This book just destroyed me.  I gotta be honest I figured this book was just gonna be all sexy time…hello the title and the content…don’t judge me J  But what I didn’t expect to see was two flawed people coming together to make their imperfections compliment the other.  Him the Sadist and her the Masochist. Him the seasoned Dom and her the novice submissive.

I never in a million years expected to fall for a sadist let alone cheer him on and want him to have the love he so desired.  But Leo got to me.  Like for real, he owns a part of my freaking black soul!!!  He is such a sweet romantic that any reader can’t help but fall for.  He is attracted to Sloane from the start.  He sees her submission and craves it.  Sloane is a hot mess. Her ex left her with so many insecurities and self-doubts that when she meets Leo she is all for some “ fun” but not realizing how he is able to get her to open up and release her demons.  He sees her walls and is all in for breaking them down and getting to know the woman before he gets to meet the submissive.  See why I fell in love with him…..*swoon*

As the story goes alone we see the couple growing and helping the other with their issues….but then a darkness sets in and like Sloane I am freaking out.  Why is Leo pulling away?  What is happening?  How can we reconnect with him?  I mean ladies, my heart hurt not having him “with” us 110%…..when the bomb drops *breath in and out* I. Was. Devastated.   I mean…WHAT!!  How could this happen?  What do we do?  How can we heal?  As I read and it ended with a CLIFFHANGER…yeah I was pretty sure it is a good thing I don’t live near Kate or I might have driven to her house and stolen her laptop to see what is up in book 2….Like I am CRAZY obsessed with these people and this storyline……..I need my Leo and Sloane to be happy and not destroyed by secrets and darkness!!!

Melinda's Review

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

I have to take a minute to collect my thoughts on this emotional ride I just went on I was at the highest of highs and lowest of lows. Yes I laughed and cried. I was over the moon in love with Leo and Sloane and then boom the air was taken from me and I free falling trying to figure out what just happened in my happy moment to turn in so wrong. So let me tell you about Leo and Sloane.

Sloane was running and hiding from her past trying to pick up the pieces and live her life doing what she enjoyed, writing. When she meets Leo who is part owner of the local bookstore she frequents and is offered a part time job at.

Leo, well Leo is about one of the better BBF out there, he is dominant, knows what Sloane needs and when even if she doesn’t. They make a great D/s even if she is new to the scene. She has just enough sass and pushes just enough to make things fun (ie. Footloose at the pizza place).

Everything is wonderful they are getting to know each other. Yes they have pasts, doesn’t’ everyone but it’s their past no biggie they can get past it. Or can they? What happens when Leo starts pulling away because of the past? Or when the puzzle pieces fit together and Sloane’s past catches up to her? Can things be the same? Can they work it out? Yeah, I don’t know either cause this ends in a cliffhanger. I have to wait just like everyone else. NO NO NO that was my exact thought too. I need closure I need Leo and Sloane to fix this now. They need each other they are better together than apart. UGH… NOW I WAIT!!!!

A few of my favorites:

“It’s perfectly normal to feel like you’re weird or sick, but you need to understand that you aren’t. Your tastes don’t have to define you any more than your hairstyle does, or what kind of car you drive, or your favorite pizza topping. It’s a preference. It suits you and that’s all that matters.”

When you started the story with, ‘He spanked me before he knew my last name,’ I was on board for this guy solely because I want to hear the kinky details.

REVIEW: Quiet Lies by R.L. Griffin

QUIET LIES

I was broken before I met Sebastian Pryor, but he decimated me. I swept the ashes of myself into a pile that I kept safe for thirteen years. Believe me it wasn’t pretty, oh but people thought we were perfect. I hate myself most days. I hate that I feel for him as much as I loathe who I’ve become with him. This story is hard to hear. You know what the worst part is? You’ll see part of you in me. You’ll hate that. You won’t tell anyone.

My story is about cracks. A description or telling of how cracks in a marriage, a life, a personality, a heart and a mind begin and continue for years without anyone knowing. You don’t always see what causes the fissure, but you feel it. Can you remember who you were before all of this started, before your life became a jumble of deceit, longing and regret?

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a happily ever after.

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a fun time out from their life.

This book isn’t for anyone, but me.

This is my story. I won’t apologize for it.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Quiet Lies by R.L. Griffin
Rebecca & Sabastian
AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER
4.5 Stars.

So, this is another one of those reads suggested to me from my pal Jo! She really knows how to pick ’em. This one is all over the globe! I still can’t decide if I love it, if I hate it, or if I just merely hate myself for loving such a fucked up story. It’s a total mind fuck and will leave you reeling for days. I feel lost, yet more empowered after reading this book. These characters will take you on a journey that you won’t soon forget.

Sabastian Pryor is many things. He’s a calloused business man. He’s a fairly good father. He’s a personable kind of guy, and most importantly, he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing! Everything from the outside looks picture perfect, but behind closed doors, they’re anything but. He cheats, he manipulates, and he uses any means necessary to get what he wants. I honestly thought I loved him in the beginning. I thought this guy can’t be that bad. Just wait!

Rebecca is a fanatical conundrum. She messed with my head more than I think Sabastian did. One day you think she’s got her head on straight and she’ll make the right decision, and then the bottom drop out on you because she doesn’t. I can’t tell you how many times I yelled out loud at my kindle over this woman and her fucked up life. She’s plays the part of a happy housewife and mother, but she’s slowly dying inside. She may seem totally gone, but there’s still a shred of the old Rebecca in there. She will surprise you and keep you on your toes. Pay attention!

The supporting character cast is not big. There are few people who don’t even get a second glance once they’ve been introduced. A few faceless people that Rebecca has to deal with at her son’s school. Rebecca’s Mother makes few appearance and I’m pretty sure that woman has a screw or two loose also. A few people from Rebecca’s past, none to really make a stink about… but there is one guy who bares mentioning… Adrian! This man saved me from complete and utter panic. He saved us all, well, mostly! I can’t really say much more about him, but you’ll see!

So, this one is a doozie! It’s complicated and complex. It’ll have you guessing and hoping till the very last part! It’s a very compelling story. It’s characters exceedingly powerful. The storyline is a little difficult to follow as it flips back and forth from past to present. Sometimes I wasn’t sure what I was reading at times, but the dialogue flowed very nicely. The tension created by the author was just right and lead me to an ending that rocked my world.
