VIOLENCE (Antihero Inferno #3) by LILY WHITE

5 intense and fantastic stars!

'I guess that's what happens when you hold a person so deep in our heart. You consume them and make them part of you. You share their pain. You experience their trauma. You choke on their truth because it's impossible to swallow.'

Lily White is a master manipulator, a temptress and creative storyteller. Each book consistently sends us in a tailspin of emotions time and again with her little morsels of information, uncovering just enough secrets in an appetizing yet torturous fashion. Oh, we do love it as we're torn between rushing to the end and savouring every wonderfully seductively mouth-watering word. Her visual prose had our imaginations going into overdrive - there were times we could visualise these men standing as a force - we felt them, all around us. Their strength, their power and their potency. We could see them, standing there looking gorgeous and menacing, all thanks to Lily White's words.

LIAR, LIAR by T.L. MARTIN

‘She watched me before she caught onto me watching her. She listened before she knew I played for her. She was mine before I showed her she was mine. She consumed me before I even touched her.’

Liar Liar by T. L. Martin is a dark standalone high school romance which is not for the fainthearted. Whilst high on drama and angst, the story of Easton and Eva is actually quite beautiful. What begins as something tragic and harrowing is followed by the realisation of a deep connection between them. From incredibly heart-breaking and violent beginnings to a wildly passionate love story of survival. Liar Liar is intensely emotional and upsetting, yet it has a beating heart filled with love against the odds.

In many ways, this dark ‘forbidden’ romance reminded us of the books we read and loved back in the day and it had a familiar aspect which we’ve definitely missed. We couldn’t put this books down; compelled by the writing and the characters. Without question, if you’re a fan of those provoking dark romances that at times are uncomfortable to read you will love Liar Liar by T. L. Martin.

RECKLESS MEMORIES (Wrecked #1) by CATHERINE COWLES

"I needed you, and you just left. Like it was the easiest thing in the world."

Catherine Cowles is an author we've been really looking forward to reading and Reckless Memories was a wonderful introduction to her works, bringing with it an emotional childhood friends to lovers, a tad of the forbidden - a small town romance with a bit of intrigue and suspense which culminated in story that had our hearts racing towards the end!

We do love small town romances, and Catherine Cowles Reckless Memories delivered the atmospheric feel of the picturesque Anchor Island, population 1500, to the point where we could almost visualise ourselves smelling the sea air and taking in our surroundings whilst sipping a drink and chatting to the locals at The Catch.

THE FALLEN: GENESIS (Deadly Virtues #0.5) by TILLIE COLE

5 stars!

"Please, Jesus, please save him. Redeem him, forgive his sins. Forgive me mine. I just need him to be okay. He is all I have left."

Tillie Cole has done it again! What an incredibly multilayered storyteller this lady is. Her talent never fails to astonish us. This series promises to deliver everything and more, so dust off the bookshelves because a new dark series is about to take up residence in your hearts, minds, and souls!

The characters in The Fallen shocked us, saddened us, broke us and made us so utterly desperate to hear each of their stories. This is no easy read. When Tillie Cole warned readers this series was VERY dark, she wasn't exaggerating. There were times we had to stop and regroup before we could continue. Some aspects of this story are confronting, uncomfortable and harrowing, and will have you questioning exactly what is good and what is the evil.
