Feared like death, worshipped like light;

He was my breath, and I was poisoned at first sight.


Just as the earth was round, I, Bianca Di Vaio, have always
been sick. I’d spent most of my life confined in my room, secluded in my
mansion, and off-limits to all the men who worked for my father, the kingpin of
Manhattan.

Then one night, I heard his voice.


Antonio Castillo talked like desire but looked like death;
dressed in all black wearing a metal skull for a face. He was the deadliest man
at my father’s disposal. The Knight who earned the name, Grim Reaper.

Have you ever heard the story about a caged young girl
who met her knight in broken armor?

*CEIFADOR X is a PREQUEL to THE KNIGHT’S ROSE and must be read beforehand*

Ceifador X ends with a cliff hanger and will continue in The
Knight’s Rose
. This book contains steamy, graphic and taboo material
between an older man and a younger girl that might be offensive for some.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a really good prequel! I was immediately sucked into this dark story. The secrets and drama left me wanting to read more! What did Bianca do and why???? I need answers! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Excerpt
Knock… knock knock… knock.

The playful
patterned echoed throughout my room.
The
man doesn’t seem like a monster.
I took a step closer to the door. Or a demon. I took another step. Or anything unholy. The space between
myself and the door no longer existed.
My eyes dropped
to the wiggling door handle. The man said something in Spanish—I think—when the
door wouldn’t open.
“It’s locked…” My
voice was tiny.
“Hello?” The
mystery man’s voice was thick and full of another world outside of the mansion,
New York, or America.
“Hi.”

Silence filled
the void between us until he cleared his throat. “You can open the door. I
don’t bite.” His voice was cunning as if he had a smile on his face. Or at
least, I hoped.
I laughed
nervously. “No, I can’t. But you can.”
“What?” He was
confused until he noticed the three locks on his side of the door.
Click. He unlocked the first. “Why… why
are you locked inside?” he questioned, his words close to one another.
“Because unlike
you, I bite,” I joked. Probably not the best time, but he laughed. A sound so
rich and thrilling it made my head rush.
This man didn’t
sound dangerous, not even the slightest.
Click.

My stomach
plummeted to the ground.
“What’s your
name, gorgeous?” he asked before turning the last lock.
My cheeks
crimsoned, and I introduce myself. “Bianca.”
“Beautiful name.”

I nodded wildly,
and I took a step back, preparing for him to open the door. “What’s yours?”
“Antonio. Why are
you locked inside?” he asked again, this time hoping for a straight answer.
“I’m sick,” I
confessed, playing with the drawstring of my baby pink plaid pajama pants which
were far too large for me even in the smallest size they came in. “But it’s not
contagious,” I reassured.
“I’m drunk,” he
confessed. “And it’s contagious… when you have a bottle.”
I smiled so hard
I thought my face was going to split in two. No wonder his words were a little
put together.
“Are you going to
open the door?”
He let out a
long, heavy sigh I wished so badly I could feel against my face.
“I shouldn’t,
shouldn’t I, Bianca?”
My heart skipped.

“Say it again,” I
begged.
“What?” He
chuckled uneasily.
“My name. Say my
name again.” It came out bratty.
Antonio said
nothing.
“Sorry, sorry. I
guess that was weird. Sorry.” I cringed at my behavior.
That’s what I got
for my little to no people skills. I never thought before I spoke or acted. I
took another step back from the door, from the man behind it, feeling like we
needed space. Because apparently, the door between us wasn’t enough.
“No, it wasn’t… Bianca.” He spoke my name like it was
made for his lips, leaving my cheeks rosy and red.
I bit the tip of
my tongue and glared at the doorknob.
Just one more click, I thought.

“Why are you
locked inside?” Antonio asked, again.
I was going to
give him the same answer as before until I thought about the question.
“Because I try to
escape.”
“Escape?”

I nodded,
forgetting he couldn’t see me. “I try to leave my room. A lot.”
“Why?”

“Because I
shouldn’t be caged, but I have to be.”
Antonio hummed,
“Where do you escape?”
“The library.
It’s the blue door, in front of the stairs.”
“So, if I were to
open the door, you would try to run?”
I let out one
single nervous giggle, “I won’t get far.”
Antonio unleashed
a soulful laugh I immediately recorded in my head for one of my bad days when I
needed a pick me up.
“So, you would
try to escape,” he said while laughing.
Not if you come inside.

“Are you going to
unlock the door?” I asked again, impatiently.
“Nothing good
comes from anything that’s locked,” he hesitated, contemplating his decision to
be here.
The truth was, he
shouldn’t have been here. I should’ve told him to leave, but I was selfish and
wanted the faceless man behind the locked door.
“Dangerous things
lie behind locked doors and cages, Bianca,” his tone, dark.
I heard Antonio
take a step back, and I quickly moved forward. I didn’t want him to leave. I
wanted the last
click, the turn of
the handle, and the eyes of a man my father claimed to be evil.
“That’s not
true.”
“Oh, really?”

“Our hearts are
behind a cage. Does that make them dangerous?”
If it was
possible to hear a smirk, I heard it.
“Like you
wouldn’t believe. The heart is the most dangerous part of a human, Bianca.” He
took another step back. “
Talvez você seja
ingênuo e jovem demais para entender.
That wasn’t
Spanish.
“What language
was that?”
“Portuguese. I’m
Brazilian.”
“What did you
say?”
Perhaps you’re too naive and too young to
understand.
His words hit me,
hard. I was too much of everything that proved I’d grown up in a cage.
Too naive and
wise.
Too young and
dying.
Too caged and
lost.
“I’m not
dangerous, Antonio. I promise you.”

Review: Untouchable by Sam Mariano

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length:541 pages

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

The bully isn’t supposed to win.

Senior year was off to a rough start: lube in my locker, panties on my front porch, unimaginative name-calling. See, I got a player suspended from the football team for harassing me, and in my small Texas town, you don’t mess with the football players—even if they mess with you first.

I didn’t care if it was an unpopular thing to do; I stood up for myself… and in doing so, opened Pandora’s Box.

I never dreamed I would attract the attention of locally worshipped star quarterback, Carter Mahoney. Never imagined his coveted attention would turn out to be such a nightmare. Beneath his carefully constructed façade lurks a monster, a predator looking for the perfect prey to play with. Now, since I’m the girl no one likes or believes, I guess I’m the perfect target for his dark games and twisted desires.

After surviving my first encounter with his casual depravity, all I really want is for Carter to leave me alone.

But all he seems to want is me.

Warning: This book is provocative. It is categorized as DARK ROMANCE for a reason. It will not be for everyone. If you are a reader with certain triggers or sensitivities common to the dark romance genre, please heed the author’s note at the beginning of this book.

My Thoughts 💭

This book was dark but I liked it. Carter and Zoey started out extremely rough but I was glad to see them get their happy ending. This was an interesting bully romance.

Synopsis

A Dark Reverse Harem Romance from USAT Bestselling Authors Zoe Blake & Alta Hensley 

This is no fairytale… 
As the Blood Moon rises, I’ve been chosen. 
Chosen to serve, to obey…to die…for no one survives their time with the Wolves. 
As I am dressed in the ceremonial Red Hood, all I can think of is escape. 
But there is no escape. 
The lives of my village depend on my submission to the accursed Wolves. 
There are five of them. 
Five men cursed to live as Wolves. 
Cursed for generations, forced to protect my village from the dark forces. 
But they demand a heavy price for their protection. Me. 
Five against one…against me alone. 
My only hope for survival is to tame the wolves…but submission is not in my nature. 

Warning: In our Fairytales, there is danger in the shadows, the beasts bite and no Heroine is truly safe. If dark tales of danger, forced attraction and multiple partners offend you then please do not purchase.

My Thoughts 💭

A dark paranormal fantasy. Red is the blood moon sacrifice and she’s terrified of being eaten by the wolves. The defiantly eat her just not in the way she’s been led to believe. Grimm, Helm, Rood, Canis and Beo have been cursed and betrayed by the elders. They’ve accepted their fate but Red comes along and she doesn’t accept how they’ve been treated. They are stern and mean but soften towards her a little. This was an ok dark fantasy.

Review: Mate by Trent Evans

Length: 197 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

She was offered as a sacrifice. He took her as his mate.

The moment her ship crash-landed, Selena Marks knew she was in way over her head, and that was before the natives of this planet took her captive, stripped her bare, and brought her deep into a sacred cave to be given as a sexual sacrifice to the godlike brute whose whims they serve.

Though Selena has an idea of what is in store for her, when her captor claims her it is far more intense than anything she could have imagined. Every attempt at defiance or escape ends with her pleading for mercy as her quivering body is punished and ravaged in the most shameful ways possible, but with each helpless, screaming climax, the truth becomes harder and harder to deny.

She is his mate, and soon she will beg for him to breed her.

Publisher’s Note: Mate includes spankings and rough, intense sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book

My thoughts 💭

I liked this book. It was a hot dark sci-fi romance. I didn’t care for the name calling but getting over that I thought it was a pretty good read.

Release Blitz/ARC Review: Malice & Obscene by Natalie Bennett!

Series: Dahlia Saga
Author: Natalie Bennett
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 28, 2019



●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●

Malice (Dahlia Saga #1)


Everyone knows the stories about naïve girls being taken by beautiful monsters.

Often the monster is a tortured soul with a fucked up past, but even then, that monster is redeemable.

This is not one of those stories.

My monster revels in the carnage he creates.

Our story is not one where good prevails and the villain becomes a hero.

My reality is dark.

His demons are darker.

And though I love my monster, this is no fairytale.

There is no happily ever after.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Omg! Julian is really a master manipulator and I felt for Morgana! She was absolutely crazy too and just wanted to get better! This book was crazy good and I definitely recommend reading this dark story!

●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●

Obscene (Dahlia Saga #2)


Love is a tragedy designed for two.
What would you endure to see it through?

I was nothing.
He was both madness and paradise.

I was innocent.
He was twisted, harboring sadistic secrets.

I was a malignant obsession.
Now I am his most prized possession.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is just as amazingly disturbing as the the first! I’m not even sure how to describe Mason or Katie😂. Mason absolutely plays with Katie’s mind and it drove me crazy how he would barely answer her questions. I definitely recommend the Dahlia Saga if you’re into the dark and twisted.

Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don’t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA’s.

When she isn’t in front of her computer she’s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.

Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.

Excerpt

One hiccup. Two hiccups. A sniff.

With my ear pressed against her door, I can hear every sound, every breath.

I can’t stop biting my lip as I listen, wondering what she’s doing right now. Something muffles her cries, a pillow perhaps. I imagine her hugging it tight as she curls up on my guest bed … her bed. In her room. The room I gave her as a prison to stay in.

I shouldn’t be here.

But I can’t stay away either. Wherever she is, I’ve always wanted to follow. It’s what drove me to her in the first place, what made me take her away from her father.

She’s right. I’m a cruel monster who only cares about his own desires. But a part of me, somewhere deep inside, wishes for something else too. Something … better. Something real.

But we can’t have that. We never could and never will.

Not when she’s my hostage, someone I keep in a soft and velvety cage for my selfish needs.

My hand lingers on the wood, nails digging in as my heart sinks into my shoes. I’m fighting the urge to unlock the door and go inside.

I have no place in her room. Not after taunting her to the brink of despair. Did I go too far? The knife and fork were only a game—a way to toy with her emotions—but the sight of her obeying me filled me with such power that it consumed me and made me lash out. I wanted her to eat that cake until she was full and then sink to her knees and take my cock as a second dessert.

But that was a filthy dream of mine. Nothing more.

I should’ve known my fantasies would interfere with my ability to reason. I couldn’t keep my cool and made her face the rage inside me. Of course, she’s upset.

I close my eyes and let out a sigh. I don’t want to be this mean. I want to make her happy.

But I want her to suffer too, and those wishes clash like hell. I want her to know what it did to me when she chose to deny me and chose her goddamn father over me. That fucking arrogant son of a bitch who didn’t even love her … who ruined her for me.

Who worked my father to death … literally.

Taking in a deep breath, I lean away from the door and stare at it for a few seconds. Then I turn around and walk away. But there will come a time when I won’t be able to keep that door locked. When I won’t stop myself from touching her … from kissing her. And that day will be here sooner than she thinks.

Synopsis

They think they own me now. They think they’ve won, and that I’ll be their good little soldier.

Four dangerous, damaged, messed up boys. There used to be five, but one of them died, and I’m starting to suspect he was murdered.

I didn’t ask for this. No one would ask to be played, manipulated, seduced and betrayed. But that’s what happened, anyway.

It wasn’t enough for them to break me. Sebastian Beckett has decided that he can’t let me go, but I refuse to forgive and forget his betrayal so easily. His fixation is bordering on obsession, but when we begin to suspect a spy within Delta, there’s no time to deal with his feelings.

Someone is selling us out, and it’s having a dire impact.

It’s life and death hiding behind corporate greed.

Let the battle begin.
