First Debt (Indebted #2) by Pepper Winters






“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”

Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.

She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.

Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.

Debts are mounting. Payment waiting. 


4.5 omfg stars 

I have to admit that I was debating between 4-5 stars, so this will take 4.5 stars from me. It certainly was a better installment to the first book, 'Debt Inheritance'. 



I enjoyed the First Debt way more than the first one. I remember being frustrated after reading Debt Inheritance. I remember how much I loathed Jethro. I remember being even a fan of Kestrel and I was shipping him with Nila. 

Well, guess what? Things change, people change.

And boy, did the MCs in this book changed! Whoah! I couldn't believe how much Jet had changed in this sequel. It was like reading an entirely different character. I was so shocked that at first it didn't sit well with me. Such a rapid change of character? Like I said, it was like it wasn't the same character & I was a little disappointed to be honest. 

BUT moving through the book I could see what was really going on. What was hidden beneath his character & I have to admit that I enjoyed his character development. 

But what I enjoyed most was Nila's character development. The weak fashion artist we knew from the first part with the constant vertigo issues? She's got some balls & I certainly enjoyed how she changed throughout this sequel. I can't wait to see more of her in the next installment. 

I have to say that I really admire Pepper's writing. She needs a damn applause for this. I loved the raging war between Jethro & Nila. I loved how their constant meetings were always a battle of who would win and who would lose. Who was the hunter & who was the prey. I enjoyed watching things becoming reversed. Nila going after Jethro & him trying to pull away from her. I'm such a happy reader thanks to her. 

We couldn’t deny what’d just happened.
It wasn’t just sex. It wasn’t just lust.
It was something more. 


What I can't say I enjoyed was that, even though I accidentally spoiled myself about Kite's identity, I have to say that it was the only thing predictable while reading this book. Yes, I already knew who he was while reading, but still, it seemed too obvious. 

Nonetheless, I would encourage people to read this series. And I know that the first one may not be very pleasant, but keep reading, because this one definitely explains a lot & it doesn't disappoint! :)


Here With Me (The Archer Brothers #1) by Heidi McLaughlin





Ryley Clarke has grown up with the military in her blood, with both parents serving their country. Ryley knows the risks of being married to the military. But when the unthinkable happens, and her future husband is killed in action, Ryley can barely survive... until Evan's twin brother, Nate, helps her pick up the pieces.

After serving on a special mission with the military for six years, Evan Archer returns home to find the unthinkable - the love of his life, Ryley Clarke - engaged to his brother, Nate. With Nate on deployment, Evan needs to figure out what happened in his absence, and more importantly, how to win Ryley back from the man he once considered his best friend, but now thinks of as his rival.

4.5 LifeIsUnfair stars 


When I had read the blurb for this, I thought "Wow, this sounds very intriguing. I really need to check this out!"

Was I disappointed when it finally came to my hands? NO!The writing is EPIC! I enjoyed so much how the first part of the book was written in alternative POVs, while attending therapist's sessions! I haven't met something like that before, so I devoured it. I could already imagine this as a movie in my mind and it worked, for me, at least. Especially reading as they were going down on their memory lane. I found it fascinating!

Back to the plot now!

Evan Archer was in a mission with the Navy for 6 years and when he returns home, he finds his fiance not only welcoming him, as he expected, but in denial, because she claims that he's supposed to be dead. Meanwhile, she's engaged to his twin brother, Nate.

Obviously, Evan isn't dead and now Ryley is utterly confused with what she should do with her life. Evan was her high school sweetheart, her first and only love, she was about to marry him, until she was informed about his death. Even though, she tried to move on and she's about to get married to his brother, she still has feelings for him. After all, she would be his wife, if he wasn't claimed to be dead. On the other hand, we have her five year old son, EJ, who has met Nate as a father and she is engaged to him, so what is she supposed to do now?

The other half of the book was really sweet & had me in awe several times. I loved how Evan tried to get everything that he had lost. Especially his bonding moments with his son, EJ. They were really adorable! Evan struggles with the fact that Ryley isn't available though and he's trying hard to change that.


What makes me rate it 4.5 and not 5? The loss of Nate's POV. Sadly, Nate's POV came only close to the ending, something that made me think that this wasn't fair for his character.. The book seemed completely one sided and I may get the reason that the author did that, it doesn't make me feel better as a reader though. Because when I read the blurb I thought I would really struggle to pick one of them for Riley, but it seemed who the author favored & it somehow felt manipulative to me. 

Last but not least, the last chapters of the book were really thrilling, giving a sense of adventure to the story. I loved how it kept me on my toes & about the cliff in the end, it wasn't something that makes me impatient for the next book, but it gives me the idea that it's going to be very interesting.



Vanquish (Deliver #2) by Pam Godwin






Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6x8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.

Warning: Graphic sex and violence. Age 18+ only
It is recommended to read after Deliver, but it can be read as a stand-alone. 

5 capturing stars 


After reading 'Deliver', I have to admit that I was really anxious and curious to know more about Van, a character that I surprisingly liked since the first book. Yeah, I definitely have a thing for bad boys, fucked up alpha males. 

This story comes after Deliver, but I can assume that someone can read it as a stand alone. Personally, I think it's wiser to read firstly Deliver. It makes things and facts more understanding. It also solved a couple of things that made me curious about them on the first book. Nonetheless, I didn't know how his story would continue, but I'm glad that I stayed to find out. 

Vanquish shows a small prologue where it shows the last moment we saw Van in Deliver, but from his POV. Then his story starts a year later from those incidents. Van doesn't change overnight. He keeps being a stalker, always spying on other people's lives. While spying on someone we know from the previous book, he meets Amber.

"What exists in the light doesn't go away in the dark." 

Amber is a really problematic woman. She has many issues, such as agoraphobia, OCD, low self esteem etc. She can't step out of her door and that's why she has guys delivering things to her. But something forces her to get out to her mailbox and that's when she meets Van. 

“You don't have anyone...at home?”
His pulse hopped through his veins. His honesty had opened a precious doorway into hers. “No one, Amber. There's not a soul that cares if I live or would miss me if I died.” 

I really loved their story. I hadn't read before about such a female character. Her issues seemed overdramatic to me, but I realized that there are people out there who are really like that and it takes a lot of strength to deal with these issues. I truly adored her character though. She was so feisty and fun and she was a cool character. 

“What's with the toothpicks?”“It used to be a tree trunk. I'm so badass I chewed it down to a toothpick.” 

Van was a character that probably not many appreciated in Deliver, maybe not even here. But I loved him. I loved the fact that I got to know more about him and his upbringing. I also loved that I got to know more about his hobby, it broke my 'dolly' heart. 

"He was a perfect imperfection." 

**SPOILER ALERT**
I honestly loved how overprotective he seemed to be with Livanna, even though it was such a small part on the epilogue. And the hug he shared with Liv was also something that I appreciated after having read Deliver. Also how Amber defended him to her and when Liv tried to explain her affection for him in Stockholm Syndrom, Amber's reply made me fist jump. Honestly, I couldn't have said it better, I'm so proud of her ;)

Deliver (Deliver #1) by Pam Godwin






*** This is a love story, a romantic thriller, and a stand-alone (no cliff-hanger). Warning: Graphic sex, violence, and psychological abuse. Age 18+ only. ***

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it's whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price. 

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold. 

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can't deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her...from herself. 


5 breathtaking stars 


Well, I finished this book a few hours ago and I have to say that this was an intense story. Wow. What an amazing ride. I want to thank mrs. Godwin for her writing style, her ability to make unpredictable characters that were both likeable & hateable at the same time & her talent in keeping a story in suspense and giving us twists and turns that we couldn't predict. I mean seriously,  thumbs up! 

This story is about Joshua Carter, a young man who has been raised by a strictly religious family, in a farm, following religious studies , while being a popular athlete. He is kind, always offers help without an exchange and that's what puts him under Liv's claws.. 

"He represented purity, beauty, family, all of the things that had been taken from her. He was a glimmer of goodness in her dark fucking world, a warm spark she could hold, if only for a fleeting span of time." 

Liv is the Deliverer. The Mistress. She captures boys and girls , trains them to become her sex slaves and then she delivers them to people who buy them. She's going to have a problem with Josh, her most unteachable slave. Both lives are about to be changed.. 

"He flailed between hating her, wanting her, fighting her, and praying for her. And through it all was the incessant urge to screw her." 

Van is Liv's right hand. I'm not going to say more about him, since I don't want to spoil anything, but they have a unique kind of relationship. Most people would probably hate him right away, but I liked his character. What can I say? I have a thing for bad boys.. 

How did one sum up morally, mentally, aesthetically, and theoretically damaged? “Fucked up.” 

The storyline was quite interesting & intense. It kept me reading , waiting impatiently to see what's gonna happen next. I didn't want to put the book down! Damn real life for making me pause every now and then! Lol, seriously though, it was a crazy ride andI LOVED IT! You really can't predict what's gonna happen next, there is also character development, you can understand what's the reason behind everything that's happening, especially towards the end.

God’s will led him to that house, but it was love that bound him within its walls. He was born with choices and would die with his decisions. 

The characters aren't easy to read, they are complicated creatures, but you get a good idea of why they think the way they do and why they act this way. I'm too tempted to give hints, but I'm not going to spoil it for you. I'm just going to say that you should read it! I highly recommend it & Pam's writing has made me officially her fan. And god her sex scenes...SO FREAKING HOT! I'm definitely going to read more from her in the future.

Love, In Spanish (Love, In English #2) by Karina Halle






The companion to the highly emotional, scandalous and USA Today Bestselling love story - LOVE, IN ENGLISH - is finally here! Love, in Spanish is a Love, in English follow-up novel told from Mateo Casalles' POV. While Love, in Spanish touches on some events that happened in LIE (you know the ones!) it is a whole new story set a year later that continues with Vera and Mateo's "happily ever after." Note: It should be read after Love, in English and it is mostly new material (aka not just rehash of LIE).

***

“She sat beside me on the bus – and she changed my whole life.”

Successful, wealthy and absurdly handsome – Spanish ex-football player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all. A high-society wife, an adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid and Barcelona only sweetened the deal. But there was more to Mateo than met the eye – a life of uncertainty and regret that colored his black and white world.

That was until Vera Miles came into his life like a shooting star. Tattooed, wild and young, Vera seemed like Mateo’s polar opposite at first. But you can’t choose who you fall in love with and the two lost souls did everything they could to be together, all while suffering the grave consequences.

Now with Mateo divorced and living in Madrid with Vera, there is a whole new set of challenges and setbacks facing the couple and rocking the foundation of their star-crossed relationship.

Unfortunately for them, the brighter the star, the faster they burn.

***Love, in Spanish contains the first two chapters of Where Sea Meets Sky, a full-length Love, in English spinoff starring Vera's brother, Josh Miles, coming March 2015 from Atria Books***
 

5 Dios mío stars! 

Love in Spanish was one of the most anticipated books of the year for me. I can't describe my delight when I got my hands on this wonderful sequel. 

I know many people disliked the first one, mostly because Mateo was a married man when he met Vera and maybe others because of their age difference. I can't say I like cheating stories, but I was convinced with theirs. They fought against it until the very end and I loved their romance, so for me Mateo is a great book boyfriend. [Can't say Isabel would agree with me , but oh well xD]

In Love In Spanish, we see Mateo's POV & how their story continues for them a year later. This book made me fall all over him again. I can't imagine a person reading his thoughts and love for Vera and not feeling jealousy or affection for him. 

“You are my everything,” I say, lips moving against hers.
“I’ve said it before and I will say it again, and I’ll go to my grave saying it. You are my star, my light, my love. And it doesn’t matter if you believe in it or not because it is the truth and the truth always finds a way to shine.” 


Their journey was tormenting. The storm was raging above their heads non stop, in a point that until the very end of the book you get panicked that they won't get their HEA. It was so heartbreaking, being able to read Mateo's feelings behind every obstacle in their way. And his letter..God, it tore me apart!! Also, it gave me a few explanations about some facts on their previous book, so I was glad to see his POV through this letter. 

I love Karina's writing so much. She's definitely one of my favorite writers and I will keep reading whatever she writes. I'm so grateful for this sequel. I can't thank her enough. 
God, their ending was so beautiful! I think it was the perfect ending for their story!

Cherish (Covet #1.5) by Tracey Garvis Graves






When Daniel Rush wakes up in the hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the head, the last person he expects to see at his bedside is his ex-wife Jessica. Their marriage disintegrated after the death of their infant son Gabriel, and Daniel gave Jessie what he thought she wanted: the freedom to start over with someone else. But Daniel never updated his emergency contact information, and Jessie is the one who receives the call with the devastating news. 

Daniel was Jessie’s one true love. Together since college, Jessie had dreams of raising a family with Daniel, and growing old together. When Gabriel died, Jessie buried those dreams with her beloved son and shut everyone out, including Daniel. 

Daniel faces months of grueling rehabilitation and he’s going to need some help. Jessie is the last person anyone expects to volunteer, but this is her one chance to make amends, giving her and Daniel a shot at getting things right this time.

The road to recovery will be long and arduous. But with Jessie leading the way, Daniel just might be able to get his old life back. 

Daniel knows how to covet. But can Jessie help him remember how to cherish? 


*Please note that this is a novella-length sequel. Reading Covet before Cherish is highly recommended in order to enhance your reading pleasure.


I believe that this novella was necessary because I felt like Covet was slightly unfair when it comes to Daniel. Don't get me wrong. I didn't want him between the couple of Claire & Chris and in no way I wanted him to break them up. I had really enjoyed his character though. He was the fun, good looking cop, always there for Claire who was really lonely. A supportive friend who treated Claire with respect [ and thankfully hadn't crossed the lines between them, even though he wanted to. (hide spoiler)] But I needed more and Cherish gives you that. 

This story starts with Daniel at the hospital, when he got shot on his head during a routine traffic stop. We had seen that part on the Covet from Claire's POV and now we see this from his & Jessie's, his ex wife who was listed as an emergency call and ran on his side when the cops informed her about his situation. 

“I lost my son, I lost my wife, I got shot in the head. I think I’m entitled to a depressive episode.” 

In the Covet, Daniel told us that they broke up when they lost their baby, Gabriel due to SIDS. Jessie had been too deep in depression and they drifted apart in the point where they took a divorce. 

The doctors inform the family that his injury will have a couple of effects, such as loss of short term memory, weakness of his body etc. The situation becomes reversed and Josh is the one who feels depressive now. With these problems in the middle is it possible that their love will get a second chance? 

“I may occasionally struggle to identify the color blue or what a lemon smells like, but it will take more than a bullet to the head to make me forget meeting the girl who would become the great love of my life.” 

PS: I really loved the epilogue. I think it was a perfect closure & a full circle for Daniel & I liked that we saw glimpses of Claire & her husband in this one ^_^


Covet (Covet #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves





What if the life you wanted, and the woman you fell in love with, belonged to someone else?

Chris and Claire Canton’s marriage is on life support. Downsized during the recession and out of work for a year, Chris copes by retreating to a dark place where no one can reach him, not even Claire. When he’s offered a position that will keep him away from home four nights a week, he dismisses Claire’s concern that time apart could be the one thing their fragile union can’t weather. Their suburban life may look idyllic on the outside, but Claire has never felt so disconnected from Chris, or so lonely.

Local police officer Daniel Rush used to have it all, but now he goes home to an empty house every night. He pulls Claire over during a routine traffic stop, and they run into each other again at the 4th of July parade. When Claire is hired to do some graphic design work for the police department, her friendship with Daniel grows, and soon they’re spending hours together.

Claire loves the way Daniel makes her feel, and the way his face lights up when she walks into the room. Daniel knows that Claire’s marital status means their relationship will never be anything other than platonic. But it doesn’t take long before Claire and Daniel are in way over their heads, and skating close to the line that Claire has sworn she’ll never cross.
 


"Maybe love is like a pendulum. It swings back and forth, slowly, steadily, and sometimes you don’t know where it will come to rest." 

Shit If I know how to rate this one! When I started it I thought it wouldn't take more than a 3 from me. When I finished it I wanted to give it 5, so now I think it's fair to take 4 stars. 

This story was definitely a roller-coaster of my emotions. I was feeling worried, angry, sad, compassionate, comprehensive, happy, heartbroken, excited. So many emotions, I was all over the place! I'll admit that I cried a little. 

I knew since the beginning that it would be a story that would really trouble me. I'm not a fan of cheating stories, so I was really worried when I realized that it was about a family with kids. Usually, I believe that when things are broken between a couple it's better to finish things, than be unfaithful. But what are you doing when there are kids in the middle? You can't finish simply like that a marriage, right? [Those were my thoughts by the way, so don't get discouraged by those words.]

Let's get to the story now. 

We have Claire and Chris. A married couple that has been drifted apart, since Chris had been unemployed. He had shut his woman out and even though he still remained a wonderful father, he acted like Claire wasn't worthy of his time. He wouldn't talk to her, he wouldn't speak to her or sleep with her. At first I didn't like Chris. Even though he was never abusive or anything like that, he seemed like a shitty husband. 

But then we see his POV and we can see his pain. He loves his family, he wants to spend time with them, even though now that he found a new job which holds him many days apart from them. He is praying that Claire will hold onto waiting for him, until they get over every obstacle in their way. 

Meanwhile, Claire meets a good looking cop, Daniel. She starts hanging out with him and he becomes what she needed from Chris and didn't have it all this time. She finds companionship with him and she feels less lonely when she's spending time with him. 

“I have no right to say this, and I’d never ask you to leave him. But I wish you were mine.” 

I really can't say how frustrated I was because I couldn't stomach the possibility of crossing the lines with him. I rooted for Chris the whole time, even when he wasn't a good husband to her. All he cared about was to be the one who would provide financially his family. I could understand Claire though. I could somehow feel her pain and how lonely, rejected and uncertain she felt with Chris. 

“Do you still love me?” I ask suddenly.
“Of course I do.” He looks confused and hurt, as if my words have cut him to the bone.
“Why would you ask such a thing?”
“Because you haven’t said it in a long time. And sometimes I still need to hear it to know that it’s
true.”
“I love you, Claire. I always will.”
“I love you, too.” 


I'm not going to say anything more, because I don't want to spoil anything. I'm just going to say that it's certainly NOT what it looks like, I enjoyed the writing , even though it had me chewing my nails & feeling frightened of what would happen with each page I flipped. 

I think that it's a really worth reading story. Hard to read maybe, but I believe that in the end it was worth it. 

PS1: Chris was my favorite character, hands down. Especially when I read the flashback with their first dates, it had me immediately rooting for him.  And then the hospital scene, it simply killed me.

PS2: Completely random, but it was my first diabetic female protagonist & I could relate as a diabetic myself. ^_^ I love when books let people know about diseases, raise awareness about health issues or other issues that were on this book, such us her friends' problems (gambling,alcoholism etc.). It showed that every family deals with issues, some more difficult than the other & nothing is as peachy as it appears sometimes. You just need to overcome them & work for them.

Cover Reveal!! Dirty by Aurora Belle

COVER REVEAL!! THIS IS THE SEQUEL OF 'RAW'



There is no release date yet, nor a synopsis, but we're looking forward to them! :)

Just Stay by Michelle Abbott



The last place Pia wants to be is on a family vacation in a sleepy Cornish village. She's anticipating two weeks of mind-numbing boredom. Then she meets Trey, a local boy. He's absolutely gorgeous. The trouble is — he knows it. He's arrogant and egotistical, and Pia intends to avoid him at all costs.

But Trey is not the kind of guy who gives up easily. When he sets his sights on Pia, her resistance is futile.

It's just a holiday romance, some light-hearted fun, right? But one of them is about to discover that still waters do, indeed, run deep. When what lurks beneath the surface finally erupts, the consequences may prove to be catastrophic.

For age 17+ due to sexual content and strong language.
 


4.5 Ima Jerkoff stars 

Pia is your typical teenage girl about to go to college. She's off for a two week vacation with her family, in whitch she's not happy about putting it lightly. There she meets Trey, an arrogant and egotistical boy and her vacation takes a whole other turn. 

I was kinda iffy about it being YA/NA, cause they tend to be a little to muchy and romancy for my tastes. But boy was I wrong. 

The story is told in dual point of view. The first half is from Pia's and the second it switches to Trey's. 
It was gripping how the emothion changed from one POV to the other. The first half was light hearted and fun, it makes you laugh and roll your eyes as Pia fell under Trey's charm. The second half had more raw and deeper emotions. 

“His name’s Ima Jerkoff,” I announce. I notice Mum and Dad’s eyes widen in shock. Ha, get out of that one, jerk. I fold my arms and smirk at him. He covers his mouth with his hand; he appears to be having a coughing fit.”

Pia kinda annoyed me at first. I didn't think she was that interesting character and at times I wanted to yell at her but page after page she grew on me. I really enjoyed reading her POV and being in her head, how she thought things through and analyzed them was so funny.

“So how come you singled me out for special treatment?”

“You’re beautiful Pia. I enjoy being with you. Truth is, I can’t stay away from you. And my dick twitches whenever I’m near you.” 


loved Trey. At first you think he's your typical cocky, egoistical bastard but no, this guy just knows what he wants and fights for it. And he wants Pia. When you find out his story, you really feel for him and what he went through. What he still goes through. His POV is heart-wrenching and you root for him to get his happy ending finally and find the love that he deserves and needs so much.

I also enjoyed meeting Pia's friend Fay in Trey's POV. She had me cracking up with her comments and I really needed some laugh in his half of the book.

Even though I had some problems with the plot, SPOILER ALERT [ how convenient it was for Pia to transfer to another college close to Trey, it was too predictable], I really enjoyed this story. The author did a great job dealing with some heavy subjects like mental abuse, suicide, depression. I fell in love with Pia and Trey's characters and I wanted them to have their HEA so bad. 
I highly reccomend this. You will not be disapointed.

PS1 Trey was listening 'Wrecking Ball' in the car? For real? 

PS2 Trey's dad is a DICK. I just had to say it.

PS3 I hope we get a sequel. I'm interested to see how they're life turned out after so many changes.

☽ I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you. ☽

Break Her by B.G. Harlen






"The moment she woke up, her nightmare began..."

What would you do if you awakened to find a dangerous stranger in your house? In your bed, next to you? Now your home has become your prison, and your body, a battlefield. How would you hold onto your sanity, your self-esteem, your very soul against someone determined to annihilate all three?

In the psychological thriller BREAK HER, one woman will find herself in this almost unthinkable situation, and one man will discover that he has finally come up against someone unlike any of those he has destroyed before. 

On the surface, this intruder has all the advantages: strength, weapons, ruthlessness. The only way he can lose is if he finds himself responding to his victim on a human level. The only way she can win is if she rips away the protective lies she’s told herself, the hard shell of indifference she’s hidden in, and becomes again what she has not been since she lost everything that mattered to her, years ago: human.

Warning: Includes graphic depictions of rape, sex, and violence and is for readers over the age of 18 only. 

5 disturbingly EPIC fucking stars 

What would you do if you woke up to find a stranger into your house? Into your bed, lying on top of you, being inside you? How can you save your body, your mind and soul when they become the battlefield? 

"She couldn’t move. And she really wanted to, because as she quickly became aware of herself, she realized that this man’s penis was deep inside her." 

Break Her is about a woman who is repeatedly raped throughout this book by a man who is hired to break her not only physically but emotionally too. We don't know their names, how they look like or why he is hired to do this. And i think that adds up to the horror of this book because you can put any face as the face of the victim or the abuser. 

I found this story to be cruel but also brutally beautiful and compelling, i just couldn't put it down. 

“You’re a very impressive person in your own right, but you’re no Charlie Sheen” 

This book had me laughing at the most inappropriate moments. It had that dry, witty, sarcastic humor and in spite of the content of this story i loved it.

"I've been fucked up the ass by Fate. What do you think you can do to me with your little, fucking penis?"

I really REALLY loved the female character in this. She was so strong, witty and kinda mysterious.

Overall i LOVED this book. The ending was just phenomenal. I would definitely read anything else B.G. Harlen writes. And now i will leave you with this..


CHECKMATE
