The Synopsis for ‘The Final Fight’:

When life brings you the perfect person at the worst possible time…

On a weekend visit to Las Vegas to visit his brother, Marine Braeden Daniels meets a woman who challenges him in ways he can’t deny. The best part is she wants what he wants.

No strings. No feelings. Just fun.

AJ is a Las Vegas performer who is finally living her dream. Growing up poor, she’s determined to succeed at any cost. No one will stand in her way—not even a hot Marine who breezes into her life all confidence and a cocky smile.

A few stolen weekends and neither can deny the feelings quickly growing between them. But the obstacles that keep them apart become more devastating when the Marine Corps calls Braeden away for a six-month deployment.

It’s only six months.

What could possibly happen?

 

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘The Final Fight’ (Fighting Series – Book #7):

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Fighting Series.***

This is my review for the final installment of the Fighting Series titled “Final Fight” by the amazing author J. B. Salsbury. This entire series is a fascinating blend of emotional depth, complex and inspiring characters, enticing and captivating story-lines. This series ends nicely and continues to be one of my absolute favorite series’ even though it’s finally met its bittersweet conclusion! “Final Fight” is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Adeline “A.J.” Pines and Braeden “Brae” Daniels.

Adeline “A.J.” Pines has big dreams of becoming an entertainer in Las Vegas and living a lavish life. For now, she must settle for a smaller role in a show and bar-tending part-time. Dating is the last thing on her mind and it remained true until handsome Marine Braeden walks into her life. She also did not expect finding out that there’s more to her usually cold and aloof rich boss Mr. Andre Monroe.

Braeden Matthew Daniels is the younger brother of UFL fighter Blake “The Snake” Daniels who lives in Las Vegas. When Brae visits his brother, he finds himself killing a little free time at a local casino where he first meets A.J. Yes, she’s beautiful and there’s an alluring quality to her but Brae has always kept things simple; no strings and just have a good time. As a Marine, he never felt the need to try to have a relationship since it would always come second to his duty. He never expected that a fun weekend could possibly blossom into something more, despite the challenges of distance and duty.

The Final Fight is such a gripping and mind blowing story that just hooks you and holds you from start to finish. The emotions that these characters stir because of their growing feelings toward each other and the hurdles and heartbreaks they have to overcome, it’s riveting. Will A.J. and Brae be able to keep their relationship simple? How will they deal with being six-months apart? And how will Mr. Andre Monroe, A.J.’s rich boss, factor into her life that seems to be growing more complicated as the months pass? I highly recommend “Final Fight” and the entire Fighting Series because the story-line is emotionally enthralling and the characters never all flat and stay interesting. The entire series delivers this same depth. It’s bittersweet that this is the final novel of the Fighting Series but all great things must eventually come to an end. Check this one out for sure! ❤

The Synopsis for ‘El Santo’ :

I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.
I killed.
I tortured.
I loved…
I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options.
If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe.
If you weren’t with me, you were against me.
Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.
Not for me.
For them.
For anyone.
Only for her…
She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.
A fucking monster.

Until it was too late.

Except, I didn’t choose this life. It. Chose. Me.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘EL SANTO’:

“El Santo” is the latest novel by the talented author M. Robinson. The first novel I read from this author was El Diablo and that was a mind-blowing read! It was perfection! This novel falls into the same realm and intensity as that one. This novel is definitely a dark romance with a great dose of suspense. The fascinating and emotional roller-coaster these characters must struggle through and live with is both entrancing and riveting. This is definitely a page turner! Once you start, you just can’t stop. Amira and Damien’s story is just beginning and left me with an ache in my heart for both characters while still holding onto a glimmer of hope. It’s all the intensity that a great novel should deliver and then some. El Santo is written from the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Damien Montero and Amira.

Damien was raised by his father, who was a close follower of a Cuban dictator by the name of Emilio Salazar. Damien admired and strived to follow in Emilio’s footsteps. When he comes face-to-face with the truth, about how his father and Emilio truly lived, he was also faced with a soul changing moment that would completely shape his life. One day would change everything he believed and knew and he’d end up needing to protect someone he was supposed to have completely destroyed.

Amira was a young child, clenching to her doll Yuly, as she witnessed the most tragic and horrifying losses in her young life. That night changed the course of her life when an unexpected person gives her the much needed safety and security she needed. Feeling so alone, she’s left at the mercy of strangers and a person she would’ve never thought would become more to her than she could’ve ever imagined.

As the story progresses, we witness the growth of Amira and her growing connection to her protectors, the only family she has in life now. All the while, Damian continuous to work for the brutal dictator Emilio Salazar while becoming a lethal killer. He’s lived two separate lives, keeping them both safely apart for as long as he possibly could. It worked, until they both began to bleed into one another despite his efforts to stop it.

Sometimes, the one thing you want and need to most in life, you have to let it go to keep it safe from destruction. “El Santo” is a truly heartpounding and emotionally charged story about Amira and Damien and their struggles with survival, taking risks, a bond that becomes hard to ignore and doing everything they can to not give into what hearts desire most. I highly recommend “El Santo” to those who love a riveting story filled with dark romance, action and for readers who don’t mind a little intensity and a complex story-line. Reader Warning: There is some violence and sexual content. Heads up, it does end on a slight cliff-hanger BUT book 2 will be so worth the short wait, which is titled “El Pecador” and will conclude Damien and Amira’s story. It will be out in early-January 2018! Read this one! It’s absolutely worth it! If you’ve read “El Diablo”, this one gives the same style of explosively awesome raw depth. Get your copy today! ❤

____________________________________________

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘EL SANTO’

Damien’s thoughts: My story is going to make you fucking hate me as much as she does, but I want you to. I’m no looking for redemption. I’m not looking for your forgiveness. I don’t deserve it like I don’t deserve hers.

Damien’s thoughts: I felt the demons that would eternally haunt me. Torment me until the day I died, until I took my last breath. I didn’t walk through the valley of the shadow of death that night…
I would now fucking live there.

Amira’s thoughts:  It was then that another reality came crashing down on me.
I. Was. Wrong.
So very wrong…
The monster hadn’t left, he was standing right in front of me. Pulling the trigger.
Ending it all…

Amari’s thoughts:  I believed him when he said I was safe in his care, which was why I didn’t want him to go. I didn’t want to be a scared little girl, taking on this new world alone.
In a way, he was all I had left.

Damien to Amira: “I’m sorry, Muñeca. For the past, for now, for the future… for everything.”

Amira to Damien: “You don’t want me to be happy. All you want is for me to burn in the darkness with you. Well, I can’t do that anymore.”

Damien to his father:  “I protect what’s fucking mine. Nothing is going to happen to her and if someone – anyone – so much as tries, I won’t hesitate to pull the fucking trigger.”

Damien to Rosario:  “One day soon, I won’t be the man who saved her. I’ll just be another fucking monster that haunts her dreams.”

Amira’s thoughts:  He was the beginning to my end or maybe it was the end to my beginning.
It didn’t matter because he was my home too.
He would always be home to me.

Damien’s thoughts:  I’ve told you from the beginning of my story that I was nothing but a fucking monster. At least now, you can’t call me a liar….

Synopsis for ‘SICK FUX’:

When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.
Tick Tock.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for ages 18 and over.

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘SICK FUX’:

Ellis Earnshaw is a beautiful young blonde haired girl who adores the story her mother introduced her to: Alice in Wonderland. Her childhood best friend Eddie lives next door but that changes quickly when she meets Heathen, the broody boy who wears all black and likes to kill insects. From there they form an unusual friendship that overshadows everyone else in their lives. Ellis, her father, his six business partners who Ellis calls her uncles and her nanny Mrs. Jenkins, all reside at the Earnshaw Estate. She has no idea that the house she calls her home carries many horrible secrets.

Heathen James is sent to live with his father who is the groundskeeper at the Earnshaw Estate. Despite his eerie obsession with watching things die, he instantly captures the attention of sweet and friendly Ellis. He experienced what most would call a traumatic event as a young child but all it did was help mold the darkness within him. He’s never had anyone show interest in him until Ellis but he has no idea that something darker exists within the Earnshaw Estate.

Heathen becomes obsessed with Ellis just as much as Ellis grows to adore Heathen. Their lives and close friendship would be sent down a dark rabbit hole in the most twisted, dark and disturbing way. Innocence would be tarnished and darkness would be inescapable. Will they find their way back to each other or will the twists and turns of their lives keep them apart? Will justice be served?

“Sick Fux” is an extremely dark, gritty and heartbreaking journey that Ellis and Heathen must face. *Reader Warning: This is not for the faint of heart and it touches on very heavy and taboo topics. I highly recommend this if you don’t mind a very dark romance that isn’t your usual type of romance story. Hearts don’t always just beat, they sometimes bleed for the ones they love. Amazingly heartbreaking and unique story. Worth checking out if you can handle it! ❤

Synopsis for ‘BATTLE SCARS’:

From the dusty plains of Afghanistan to the sleek corridors of the New York Times, journalist MJ Buckman seeks the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. What she doesn’t expect to find is a man who’s her complete opposite … and fits her perfectly.

Marine Sergeant Jackson Connor knows that relationships don’t work for men in the military. He’s living proof of that. But when a steely-eyed temptress in a flak jacket, who carries her moral cause in front of her, crosses his path, he’s furious, curious, and all kinds of in-lust.

* * *

A grown-up love story about two people who aren’t looking for love, but realize how precious it is when they find it. They don’t play games and there are no stupid misunderstandings, just life standing in their way.

Can they compromise? And what does that look like in a modern relationship between two driven people?

Assignment Vs deployment.

They’re always traveling in different directions. What relationship can survive that?

 

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘BATTLE SCARS’:

“Battle Scars” is the latest novel from the amazingly-talented author Jane Harvey-Berrick. This Contemporary Military Romance novel touches on deeper topics regarding war and a love that grows unexpectedly. This author never disappoints when it comes to building great characters that form believable bonds while dealing with life changing events. Battle Scars is written from the main characters’ P.O.V.’s(point of view), M.J. Buckman and Jackson Connor.

Journalist M.J. Buckman is a driven and talented journalist for a well-known news network. She has big dreams of one day getting a promotion for a permanent position as a foreign correspondent. When she finds herself in a hostile situation in Afghanistan, she finds herself thankful yet furious at a Marine who lets her know how he really feels about her being there. Unexpectedly, an open-ended invitation may just send her life toward a cross roads that she’s never had the chance to experience before.

Marine Sergeant Jackson Connor is a ruggedly, strong and devoted man who proudly serves his country. The safety of his fellow Marines and completing their missions are always his main concerns. When he’s sent on a rescue mission, he can’t help but feel frustrated at the situation and the person needing to be rescued. But what surprises him the most is this attraction he feels toward this journalist.

Battle Scars delivers an enthralling and riveting story-line about two career driven people who can’t ignore their growing connection. Even so, they have the challenges of distance due to their careers while dealing with the ups and downs that life brings. M.J. and Jack have never really felt the need to put a relationship before their work but begin to find it hard to continue feeling this way when it comes to one another. I recommend this wonderful and beautiful love story for those looking for a lovely read that isn’t too dark or heavy. This one is definitely worth checking out. ❤

Synopsis for ASHER BLACK’:

He was supposed to kill me. I had done the unthinkable. I called the cops on him, on his family, but he let me live. We became friends, and then… we fell in love.

Lucy Ives is a foster kid, running from her turbulent past. On her first night in New York City, she accidentally calls the cops on the mafia. When their fixer comes to kill her, he spares her life in exchange for a favor–be his fake fiance or die.

Note: This is a full-length, 90K word novel with sexually mature situations unsuitable for underage audiences. It has an HEA an no cliff-hangers. Please, proceed with caution.

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘ASHER BLACK’:

“Asher Black” is the debut novel from new author Parker S. Huntington. I will begin my review by stating that, for a debut novel, this was gripping and enthralling from start to finish. This fast-paced novel is filled with high-volume sexual tension, witty banter, and unknown danger that just keeps this story flowing smoothly. The characters are an enticing blend of: Alluring successful man who potentially has strong ties to the mafia who meets a tough and beautiful college student who uses her guile when necessary. Asher Black is written in the main female character’s P.O.V.(Point of view), Lucy Ives.

Lucy is new to New York. As a new student attending the prestigious and respected Wilton University, her life seems headed in the right direction. She quickly starts up a friendship with her new roommate Aimee. Before long, a night out dancing turns into an unexpected night of twists and turns for Lucy. After experiencing a steamy moment, witnessing an altercation that snowballed, and trying to forget what she witnessed and did, will Lucy be able to move past that night?

Asher Black is known as a dangerous man and someone you do not want to mess with. On top of that, he’s disgustingly rich, successful, and attractive beyond words. His rumored ties to the Romano mafia family, just add to the reasons why you don’t want to cross him. When Lucy unknowingly crosses paths with him, her life gets thrown into a surprising and dangerous tale-spin. Will Asher bring danger to Lucy’s life or will the explosions come from their growing sexual tension?

“Asher Black” is an exciting and enticing story about Lucy and Asher who both grew up with rough childhoods. Now as adults, their paths intersect, leading to a roller-coaster ride in more than one. What is the deal these two will make with each other? Is someone out to get one of them or both? This dangerously entertaining novel delivers on everything you’d hope for from a story-line with a very fierce, at times ruthless, and always sexy man like Asher Black. And, you can’t forget the strong-willed, kindhearted, and beautiful Lucy Ives who is a survivor and not easily breakable despite the rough terrain she’s had to withstand in her past. I recommend this great novel for readers looking to read something with action, romance, and an entertaining story. I definitely am interested in seeing what comes next in The Five Syndicates Series! 😉 Check this one out next! ❤

How I imagined the characters while reading ‘ASHER BLACK’:

____________________________________________

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘ASHER BLACK’

Lucy’s thoughts: He’s breathtaking. My eyes trace the defined edges of his jaw, entranced. He has a face that belongs on the big screen, but my intuition tells me he’ll never agree to such exposure. It’s his eyes that convey this to me. They’re intelligent but also guarded.

Lucy’ thoughts: The shallow, senseless part of me tells me to forget who Asher is. To acknowledge and accept that my life will soon be over. That part of me is encouraging me to just take a moment to enjoy the touch of a gorgeous man before it happens. Even if that gorgeous man may eventually be my killer.

Lucy’s thoughts on Asher’s words:  There is nothing I won’t do for the ones I love.
I’ll remember his warning for as long as I live. I was wrong. His love isn’t his weakness.
It’s his greatest strength.

Lucy’s thoughts: I look good. It’s almost weird. Last time I saw Aimee, I was wearing my own raggedy clothes. Now, I’ wearing handmade, one of a kind creations. Is this how Julia Roberts’ character feels like in Pretty Woman? Two parts princess, one part whore?

Lucy and Asher Black:  I’m emotional because he defended me. I can’t tell him this, though. It makes me too vulnerable.
His eyes look earnest and void of judgement when he says, “It’s okay to cry at kindness. This is the first time someone has stood up for you, but it won’t be the last. I’ll always look after you, okay?”
Of course, he figured it out.
This is Asher Black.
“You’re different than I thought you’d be.”
Back then, I thought he was cruel, calculated, and perceptive. A lethal weapon. I was right. But I was also wrong. He’s so much more than that.

Lucy and Asher Black:  “I just… I can’t help but feel like I should be doing this…”
“Don’t.” The harshness in his voice is shocking. “Don’t even think about it, Lucy. Between your life and hers, yours is the one that matters. Every. Single. Time.
Because you’re mine.”

💕

The Synopsis:

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance.

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘DAMNABLE GRACE’ (Hades Hangmen Series book #5):

*May contain Character Spoilers(Not story Spoilers) if you haven’t read the previous novels of the Hades Hangmen Series.*

The completely dark and gritty Hades Hangmen MC Series continues with the fifth installment titled “Damnable Grace” by the always amazing and talented author Tillie Cole. This series continues to deliver such depth, raw-emotional dialogue, and a captivating story-line that can break your heart one moment, then revive it fully the next. As always, I will do my best not to ruin any of the plot twists or spoil any of the big moments for you readers. It’s best and more fulfilling to experience it all on your own. This novel follows one of the wild Hangmen trio known as “AK” to his MC brothers and it also follows the cult sister Phebe. The story is written from the three character’s P.O.V.’s (point of views) of Phebe, Xavier “AK” Deyes, and some from Flame.

The Hades Hangmen MC Brothers are out to rescue the sister of one of their old ladies and to bring down the the twisted group who has imprisoned them. The MC must face off against the ruthless Aryan Brotherhood clan that has descended to their part of Texas. AK can’t seem to get the beautiful cult female with the red hair out of his mind. As he and the other Hades Hangmen MC brothers dig deeper into finding out where Phebe is, they discover the very dark place they’ll have to go to in order to bring them down and rescue her. How can they do this dangerous mission without suffering too many risks to the MC? As they plan, it seems  likely that they’ll have to infiltrate in order to bring their sick enemies down.

Phebe had one duty for the commune which was to lure and entice new men to join the cult by seducing them. That was until the cult gave Phebe to their business associate by the name of Meister. The evil and violent commander Meister now owns her in his controlling and terrorizing ways. All Phebe can do is hope that those that she loves are far away from this hell. Will Phebe ever escape her current hell or will she die under the pain she lives daily? How will her past touch her present life and will the truth of that past be destroyed along side of her?

Flame is still Flame. The only person that has been able to break through his dark exterior is Maddie. His newfound little brother Asher means a lot to him since he was found but Flame isn’t familiar with normal feelings and expressions of those feelings. He continues to struggle to get closer to his brother, his only family outside of his biker brothers. With the troubles the Hangmen find themselves facing, he may face that moment. Will he be able to?

The Hades Hangmen MC are violent and vengeful when the situation requires it but now they must face off with something worse. A clan of cruel and brutal racist abusers who see the MC as an enemy. This dark Contemporary Romance will leave you holding on tight to your feelings and take you on a gripping ride! 😉 There is a special little bonus at the end, so definitely be on the look out after Damnable Grace ends. I highly recommend this novel and series. These characters and the story-line constantly grip the readers attention and never lets go until the end. “Damnable Grace” is very dark, heartbreaking and touches on twisted situations but the emotional depth intertwined keeps you wanting to continue their journey. Reader Warning: It touches on sensitive topics such as abuse, sexual assault and some brutal violence. This is such an enthralling series! It’s definitely a Must read! ❤

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, abuse, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and very mature topics.
Recommended for age 18 years and over.

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM DAMNABLE GRACE’:

Devin (Deyes brothers):  “You got no idea what it’s like out there, X. You got no fucking idea.”
“I wanna fight, Dev. I… I wanna fight for our country, like you. I.. I fucking wanna be like you, Dev. Always have.”
He’d saved us. Pulled us outta the damn gutter.
He was my motherfucking hero.
“I wanted better for you, kid.”
“Fighting alongside you, for our country and freedom? That’s as good as it goddamn gets.”

Phebe to AK:  “You,” she said again, a new lightness in her voice. Her fingers ran over my lips, then up, stopping at my eyes.
“The one with the kind eyes,” she murmured. Her head tilted to the side like an innocent child.
“You would not kill me. I deserved to die, but you would not kill me… because you had kind eyes.
A devil’s man with angel eyes.”

AK and Phebe:  “It ain’t gonna be easy, Red, but you gotta eat something.” He pointed to me. “Right now you’re a bag of bones.”
I gasped as I stared at the girl in the mirror. Her skin was dull and gray.
Red, I thought as I stared back at my reflection. AK had called me “Red“.
The color of my hair.
I startled at the brief flicker of a smile on my lips.
Not Phebe. Not “whore”… but the sheer simplicity of the name Red.

Phebe and AK:  “My freckles. My millions of freckles stand out against my pale skin like neon lights in the fire’s glow. I always disliked them.”
“Look up. Look up at the sky.” I said again. She did.
“There are so many stars,” she whispered.
“Imagine the sky without them.”
“Why would I do that? They make the sky so pretty. They are the reason people stargaze. To see their beauty.”
“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at.”

AK’s thoughts:  And with every mile made, I let me hatred of Meister build inside me- fuel to this fucking mission. Or massacre, I thought to myself. I’d make him pay, strip his flesh and slice through his guts. And as I looked to my left and right, Flame and Viking by my side, I knew they’d be with me too.

Story Quote: “Live Free. Ride Free. Die Free!”

The Synopsis:

Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.

Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.

He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.

But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.

Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘RIOT’:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Scarred Souls Series.***

“Riot” is the forth novel in the Scarred Souls Series by the amazing Author Tillie Cole. This novel delivers emotional depth, a riveting story-line, enthralling characters, and everything we love most about this series. Riot is told from three main character’s P.O.V’s (Point of views) which belong to 152, 901, and Luka.

She is only known as 152. Most of her past is a mystery, her present is questionable, and her future is uncertain especially now that she’s become the “Mona” to a ruthless and dangerous man they call Master. Small flashes of memories surface in 152’s mind but still she can’t piece together where she’s from or who she really is. All she can do as try to survive the dark life that she is forced to live. Will her life always be controlled by the hands of the sadistic Master? Will she be able to survive this empty and painful life or is there more to her story?

901 is Master’s winning fighter. He brings violence, pain, and death to everyone who enters The Blood Pit to face off with him. 901 knows he holds a little control as the Master’s prized fighter but he never gives Master what he wants, which is to draw out the fights so they last long enough to be entertaining. Master must give his possession that is obsessed with to his prized money-maker to make sure his evil Kingdom stays strong. The evil Master never expected what comes next. Will 901 be able to resist the threat Master sends his way? Can 901 survive the ultimate fight of his life?

Luka Tolstoi was known as “818” and fought till the death, once upon a time. Now, his life consists of family and the love of his life, his pregnant wife Kisa. He has become a leader and close friend, practically brothers, with Zaal and Valentin who also knew the life in the gulag and the dark underground world they escaped. Between the three, they must come up with the greatest plan to rescue Valentin’s sister from that underground world and destroy that world once and for all. It won’t be easy. It will actually be very dangerous and difficult, but they are family and this family will do anything they can for each other. When faced with the mission ahead, Luka as well as Zaal and Valentin might just have to revive their inner beasts in order to bring down the Master, once and for all. Will Luka be able to turn on the beast inside without losing himself to it completely? Will their plan work or are they destined to fall?

In the final installment of the Scarred Souls Series, we get to know two more beautiful, broken, and scarred souls simply known by the numbers that were given to dehumanize them.  We still get to hear from Luka, Kisa, Talia, Zaal, Zoya, and Valentin from the previous novels of the series. Valentin is determined to rescue his sister from the evil imprisonment that he and the other two former fighters escaped from. In order to rescue his sister they must come up with a plan. On top of that they all want to put an end to that twisted underground world and bring down Master once and for all. I highly recommend this novel and this series! It’s so dark and twisted, but the raw emotional journey these characters take make you crave to see them rise above the life they were forced to live for so long and defeat that darkness. You should definitely read this one asap! It’s so worth it!

**Content Warning**: Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, excessive violence, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.
