Ransom Riley Hale's friends think his life is charmed: first string as a freshman on a championship-winning college football team. A father with two Super Bowl rings. A mother with platinum albums and multiple Grammies under her belt. But that brilliant shine on the surface hides the darkness beneath; it's all Ransom has ever known.
Despite the shadows he walked in, once there was a blinding light fracturing the darkness. It brought the promise of hope and happiness. He’d been careless, filled with pride and stupidity and lost that light. Ripped it from the world.
Now, the shadows are dimming again. Aly King surges into his life threatening to pull him from the darkness. She is everything Ransom can never be again. Her light feels too warm, promises him that there is more waiting for him beyond the shadows.
But the shadows are relentless, resurfacing when he thinks he is safe, and Ransom knows he must keep Aly from them too before he pulls her down into the darkness with him.
This read played with so many of my senses... Visually it painted the scenery of New Orleans.. the vibe, cultures. It Played with the sounds.. you could practically hear the music, different accent's, languages make out the chatter. And you could feel the emotions of all the characters, feel the music they danced to.. Feel the angst, lust, heartache.. LOVE..
Ransom's story was one of guilt, he tried to be strong for all those around him but was
totally broken inside.. Events that took place in his past and the anger he's always carried lead him to make some really bad turns and he wouldn't let anyone help him find his way back.. He felt he owed a penance and that was that!!!
Aly was a strong girl who managed to make it on her own and took control over her future not the one her father thought she was meant for.. She was reserved, motivated and determined. Her only Achilles was Ransom.. She watched him from afar for years, watched him slowly crack but knew he would never allow her close enough to help..
This was an angst filled read which grasps you from the start.. Ransom from reading about him in Thin Love was always struggling with his emotions.. Although never to this extent.. He always had his family to turn to but chose not to and that's when he started to sink.. I Love how Eden Butler took us on this trail with a somewhat blurry, mysterious vibe.. You never really knew what happened.. We found out when she wanted us too..
That damn Epilogue Killed me.. I was expecting rainbows and butterflies.. Not even close.. Very Genius but wicked of you Ms. Butler.. I Am Hooked!!!
***Warning. This book contains extreme violence, and scenes that may upset some readers. ***
Jude Pearson could just as well kill me as kiss me most days. He was my captor, my living hell, and yet, he became my saviour, my heart. Stupid. Hes heartless, conditioned to feel nothing, and so I ran... straight into the clutches of his enemy. Joe Campbell wants Jude to suffer, and I just became a pawn in a very dangerous game.
Joe has broken me in every way, everything that I once was stripped away, and in its place is festering hatred and a rage so cold I feel nothing else. I have one purpose. Revenge.
Love makes you weak, it makes you irrational. She was collateral, completely innocent when she was unwillingly dragged into my corrupt world. With the damage Id already caused her, I couldnt let her love me, so I let her go, and now...he has her.
No matter where she is, she will always be mine. This man has taken every-fucking-thing from me, and he has the last thing that matters to me. I will kill him. Slowly. Joe Campbell better run because the devil is fucking coming for him.
Sometimes two wrongs can make a right.
Our Wrath binds us, but it may also break us.
Okay so right from the start.. SHIT GOT REAL..
I sorta, kinda knew it wouldn't be pretty but Holy Mother... I was a wreck just reading the first few chapters.. I really wanted to rewind time and slap some sense into Tor so she wouldn't run!!!
Then the situation went from fucked up to there is no going back.. How does some one coup, how could you NOT blame yourself, CAN you EVER forgive yourself if you survived.. I was a blubbering mess.. I reread just to make sure I missed the part where she was just having a nightmare.. I started rewriting a particular scene in my head because I REALLY REALLY needed a different outcome..
This was a fast paced story, that was so original and unpredictable..
I really had no clue what I was in for when I first picked up Wrong and it just got better from there... Kickass Heroine, Yummy Bad Boy, Damn Hot and a plot that will keep you glued to your kindle from the first swipe!!!
And Folks we do get a HEA!!!
Bravo Ladies.. this is a read I will definitely be recommending
When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.
But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I'm more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King's bed.
Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.
I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.
I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.
He's already saved me in more ways than one. Now it's my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.
Even if that means marrying someone else...
Full of Suspense, Mystery, Damn Witty, Super Sexy ~ it was a Straight up attention grabber!!!
I was gutted with some of the events from King and honestly didn't know how I would cope with it.. But this book made the impossible happen and brought teary smiles and belly holding laughs when it came down to it..
It was seductive and panty- drenching especially when we got King and Doe in the same scenes!!
We got to take that ride with Doe as she was slowly getting some of her memories back..
It was all starting to make sense and you start feeling bad for certain characters but then BAM!!
Your on the edge of your seat between chapters as we see what King and Bear are getting into or rather getting out of!! Then BOOM!! we're back to watching Doe interact with her son and spend time with Tanner..
We were given sweetness, then slapped with Holy Mother Of... moments
Yea I was a mess ~But devoured every little second of it..
Wow... was stellar!! was more than what I could have imagined, I cringed, I laughed, I cried, I cheered!!
SO ready for LAWLESS Yea Baby!! Mutha ~ Fucking Bear's Story..
Better get jumping on this read.. you won't be disappointed!!
“You’re the sleek little sports car to my Land Rover.”
From the moment Gareth walks through the door of the salon to fit some new sinks, Jules can’t take his eyes off him. Jules has always been attracted to men who are his polar opposite, so burly Gareth is Jules’s fantasy man.
At the weekend, Jules gets into a tough situation with another bloke in a gay club and Gareth comes to his aid. Gareth rejects Jules’s subsequent advances but leaves him with the hope that his attraction isn’t completely one-sided. Fantasy could become reality.
With Gareth’s work at the salon nearly done, he’ll soon disappear from Jules’s life for good. Time is running out. Jules needs to prove to Gareth that he’s tougher than he looks and that his feelings run deeper than gratitude.
What a fun, quick, steamy read..
Jules fell into insta Lust over Gareth.. He checked off ALL of Jules' Must Haves and then some..
To bad he was straight.. Or was he?
I enjoyed watching Jules come on strong then let his insecurities get in the way when he was turned down.. Then Gareth came to his rescue and was so protective but oh so sweet..
"I'm not crush material. I might be pretty but I'm not in your league." ~ Jules
"You're my type. I Like pretty. I've never seen the appeal of a big hairy bloke like me." ~ Gareth
When they finally came to terms and all the walls came down I couldn't help but sigh with happiness for these two!!
You can never go wrong with Jay Northcort haven't read one yet that I didn't enjoy!!
I am Caesar. Broken and conflicted. I am a man who gives false goodness to those who crave it. I provide solace to the ones who beg to be saved, giving them the goodbyes they want. But, my quiet little world is about to be shattered by the whispers from heaven and hell.
I am Mateo. Unlovable and unworthy. I am the boy everyone runs from. I keep love close to me in little jars of perfection, reminding me of a thousand goodbyes I never had to say, because I left them before they could leave me.
I am Svetlana. Dirty and Used. Birthed into brutality while still trying to comprehend my version of normal. I am an injured lamb, eaten by filthy wolves day after day. Just as salvation seems like it's within reach, a goodbye from this awful world is all that I wish for.
**Graphic content warning including detailed depiction of brutal, bloody acts. Physical and emotional abuse is also apparent throughout this book with graphic sex scenes, both consensual and non-sensual. Reader discretion is highly advised. Not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen or those who are easily offended by the above mentioned acts.
Heed the warnings!!! They are there for a reason and in this case it was not an exaggeration .. You either will Love this story or Hate it, I don't see how there can be an in between..
One of these authors must be familiar with the South Bronx because the vibes, imagery and street names were on point reason being I grew up in Hunts Point and glad to say my parents were able to shelter me from most of what went on.. But I still saw ALOT..
This was an extremely dark read, with subject matters and scenes that would shock even the most avid Dark & Twisted reader.. This was a total Mind Fuck from the start and just kept getting more intense as it went on.. If you THINK you like dark reads seriously don't bother.. You have to CRAVE the shock factors in these kinds of books.. ESPECIALLY this one..
It was gory, twisted, taboo, sick, abusive and scarier, some of the things I just read can happen right under our noses!! The Blurb did hint at what I was in for but boy was it an understatement.. I'll leave it at that for those that are brave enough to give it a go!! It's a ride you won't soon forget and possibly have nightmares about!!
Bravo Ladies on making me question MY Dysfunctional taste in books!!
