The Body Painter (Master of Trickery Duet, #1) by Pepper Winters
abuse , contemporary , crime , dark , erotica , suspense / 11/09/2019

This was heartbreaking, all-consuming and addictive. I am an emotional wreck after reading this. How will I wait for the sequel? Ms. Winters, you must be a sadist to let us wait for the part two 🙂 Gil was Olin’s soulmate. Her rock, her tormentor, her everything and then he just left and pushed her away. After a few years, she accidentally runs upon him and the intense chemistry is still there. But he changed. There are new secrets, new tormentor and new heartache. How much can she take? Everything, because he is still the one and only. This is not a happy story, it is dark, passionate, unfair, intense, emotional and cruel. It is also a love story. And in every love story, people hurt and bleed and tear up their heart that the pain is almost physical. I went through the roller coaster with this story, I cried with unfairness for a young boy, got angry toward people cruelty and wielding they power, I wanted to smack them and shake them, but most of all I felt for both of them. So much happened because of other people selfishness and the life they were put in, so much…

Unhuman Acts (Only Human #7) by Candace Blevins

Can I read this book again for the first time? It was EPIC. I think I cried, Laugh and experienced so many emotions like I was right there with them. Ms. Blevins leads us to the final battle between good and evil. It is overwhelming. So much is happening and everybody is included. It was great to see all the characters from previous books. It makes me want to read all of the books again. It is not all about fighting, there is a great part about love, sacrifices, joy, family, loyalty, and trust. We finally got to see more of Mordecai and Nathan. Their insight and POV was highly anticipated and I loved their input. It is amazing to follow favorite characters through their story, to watch them grow, change and mature and finally find their peace. I was pleasantly surprised with the sex scene and was so glad there was still time for that. It was wonderful and hot but also seemed more mature and connected. The spiritual aspect is very well explained and written as usual. The whole book is emotional and intense. There were great losses, but it wouldn’t be realistic if there was none. It was…

Mindf*ck Series by S.T. Abby

The series list: The Risk Sidetracked Scarlet Angel All the Lies Paint it all red I binged through this series I was so consumed. It was intense and I went through the roller coaster of emotions. I Cursed, I cried and laugh at the same time. Lana and her brother were tortured, raped and left to die 10 years ago. Everything was covered by corrupted and scared people, even in high places. But she came back. She plotted and learned 10 years for revenge and she is not backing down. What she didn’t expect was to find love in the middle of her rampage. She is so strong and I admired her for all she went through. The plot was intense and we get to see more and more of the past through the series. The moral compass is twisted and I couldn’t fault her for anything she does. I loved the dialogue and sarcasm, and I laughed at the pun-intended jokes. There was so much wrongness in that town I was glad it burned. There is so much more to say about the series, but you have to read it. The secrets are coming out and nobody involved is…

The Dirty Ones by J.A. Huss

Buy this book now. Seriously! Just wow. I was blown away with every chapter. One of the best mystery, thriller, suspense, erotic romances lately. I am not even sure how to categorize it. It is a great mix of everything entwined. The author writes a wonderful plot, mystery with so many questions along. I went through the whole specter of emotions while reading this and it was worth it. The characters are authentic and realistic, every one of them has their own story but together they are connected with the past. The things that happened should stay there but the past doesn’t want to stay buried. 10 years after attending their senior year someone wants to play a game. Are the memories real? What is the real truth? Just one – that they are the Diry Ones and this is their story! I loved the suspense and couldn’t stop reading until I had all the answers. And when I had them I wanted to read it all over again. I wanted to cry, to yell to hug them or just be with them. The suspense, the building and the romance with an erotic encounter is the perfect mix in an…

Notice by K. Webster
abuse , contemporary , dark , erotica , romance , suspense / 20/01/2019

This was one intense ride. I like how the author knows how to hit taboo themes and makes them very readable. Violet suffered a lot by her abusive ex boyfriend. From rape, pimping to forced drugs and more. She is in hiding but works for a company with eccentric chef. After 6 year not being appreciated as a employee, she decides to quit – but than her boss finally notice her. She becomes his obsession. Their chemistry is sparkling and they just click in nonconventional way. Their sex is smoking hot and his dirty talk would fire up even the dead. I hurt with them and both of their past but they both survived and didn’t became victims of their decisions. Yeah they were both a bit different but in a good way 🙂 I liked that about them. This is one good darkish erotica story.

Sweet Jayne by K. Webster

Wow, this was one hell of a dark, twisted and intense story. It kept me on edge till the end. Nadia is a 17 old girl. Her mother married a millionaire Donovan Jayne. He is handsome, overprotective and there is obvious chemistry between them, but still he is her stepdad and off limits. One day her new friend Kasey is kidnapped and even though she witnessed the kidnapping she doesn’t remember much. Years later, Kasey still wasn’t found and Nadia is engaged to her stepdad (ex) best friend and police Chief Logan. She has her own agenda while still searching for Kasey,but there are others too who won’t let the past in the past. I loved the plot, the suspense and all the graphic details despite the dark and twisted scenes. There is a lot of sex, non-con acts and some weird romance. Everything slams together in the end and we do have some sort of HEA. The characters were real and their charisma was strong. I just couldn’t get over Logan, he was such a prick from the beginning and I still don’t understand how he managed to manipulate everything. Further into the book I hated his guts and…

Knotted (Trails of Sin, #1) by Pam Godwin
abuse , contemporary , dark , erotica , romance , suspense / 06/10/2018

Wow this was one intensely dark read. The emotional suspense, intrigue, love, passion, commitment, kink and more… 4 friends, young and innocent got sucked into a scheme of grownups. Their youth taken away too soon, too swift and it changed everything. One couple, two brothers all very protective of the only girl in their little circle. Conor and Jake are soulmates and decided to make love for the first time on her 16th birthday outside in the open. They are ranchers after all. While preparing to make it special and a bit kinky, they got ambushed. So 3 boys are forced to watch their friend being raped over and over again. Her innocence brutally taken, and the traumatic incident changed them all. 6 years later little bits and pieces are clearing up about the past. Nothing is as it seemed at first. The dark schemes revealing a lot more everybody expected. All The characters are strong. Dominating cowboys protective and possessive of their own. They show a wide range of emotions and sometimes act in unpredictable ways, but they move the plot forward with their action. I love how they are dark and hurt but they still know how to…

Queen Takes Rook (Their Vampire Queen #4) by Joely Sue Burkhart

I believe this became one of my favorite series. Erotic untraditional vampires combined with a female heroine in a great suspense is just amazing. The complexity of the plot is so well written that you can easily imagine every scene in details. After her deal and help with Queen Zaniyah, Isadore is ready for her well-deserved rest but politics and NY queen have something else in mind. She is invited to New York, where she will finally face and deal with the NY Queen. All of this while dealing with betrayal from someone from Zaniyah’s nest and Ra’s intrusion. While in NY the story is quickly developing and turning, but the reader doesn’t feel like it’s rushing so it’s nicely executed. Every Blood has well developed character with so much depth you feel for them every time they hurt and love. It is wonderful how she knows how to use their advantages and takes time for every single one of them. She is still getting to know the new twins and there is a hint of doubt that quickly dissolves when they open to her and help her in critical situation. She is amazing in her unapologetic love for life…

Defining Human (Only Human #4) by Candace Blevins

Oh wow, what did I just read? This was one intense roller coaster of paranormal politics, fight, bad decisions, good intentions, heartbreak, sex and more. So much happened in this book it is hard to put in a review but still so many questions are still not answered. Ms. Blevins shakes the whole paranormal world with so many twists and turned everything upside-down. Who is good and who is bad, who are allies, who would you chose to save? So many moral questions and not one straight answer. Will good ever defeat the bad? I guess the balance is important but what happens when the scale goes to the wrong side? Everybody claims they have good reasoning behind their decision but decisions are still hard to understand. I loved the plot and suspense and even moments that made me love and hate and curse everybody and every decision. I still have a hard time processing Abbott decision. I really hoped they will get back together. He is ultimate authority, strong, sexy and uncompromising but caring and a strict Dom with kink I love. That is why I was shocked to find out he was behind Kirsten kidnaping. Kirsten is trying…

Wicked Nights (Angels of the Dark #1) by Gena Showalter

First let me say I am a fan of Gena and her Lords of the Underworld so I had great expectation about this book. I was a bit disappointed. Not that it was bad but this was more of an action movie story than paranormal romance. The constant fight between good and evil and never-ending inner battles. Zacharel is on his way to lose his wings if he doesn’t change his path. He is ruthless and strong and somehow selfish in his way to destruction. But when he meets Annabelle he doesn’t understand the appeal at first. But the more time he spend with her, the more he understand why are humans important and precious. Annabelle is a strong girl who is falsely accused of killing her parents and put in the mental institution, because no one believes her there are monsters (demons) walking among people. She suffered so much but came out stronger. I like my heroines strong and that they are not always damsel in distress  in need of a great hero. So I liked that about her, that she took care of herself despite the circumstances. When Zacharel shows herself to her, some things finally make sense to…
