The King (Masterpiece Duet, #1)

The King by Skye Warren My rating: 4 of 5 stars The angst! The suspense! The darkness! The age gap! Ooh la la!This book turned out to be different than I anticipated, but in a good way. The lead up and back story provided really lent a richness to the book that made all of […]

Slaughter

Slaughter by Shantel Tessier My rating: 5 of 5 stars Excellent, but darker than dark Okay, let’s start with a disclaimer here: this book, while great, is darker than dark. Trigger warning- physical abuse, slavery, non-consensual bondage/sadism, and non-consent (nothing “dubious” about it). Now that we have that out of the way, on to the […]

Spark (Stronger Series #3)

Spark by Jay Marie My rating: 5 of 5 stars Excellent series As with the other books in this series, don’t go looking here for romance-you won’t find it. This is not a dark romance. I’ve seen it described as an erotic thriller, and I have to agree that is a better description. There are […]

Untouchable

Untouchable by Sam Mariano My rating: 5 of 5 stars DARK romance Wow… this turned out to be quite different than I anticipated. In a GOOD way.I had read a few reviews, so I expected dark. But this started out REALLY dark. Still, throughout the story the author did an excellent job of building out […]

Accidental Witness (Morelli Family #1)

Accidental Witness by Sam Mariano My rating: 5 of 5 stars Bye bye, sleep. Need to read more Morellis! Oh my god, I love this book. This whole series. This author. I put it off because, and I know this is stupid, the cover came off more “suspense” than “dark romantic suspense” to me. I […]
