Harlow Grace - Monster Stepbrother Review

Monster Stepbrother was an emotional roller-coaster filled with steamy sex, sexual tension and dark pasts. Oliver and Maya's attraction is static and thick with sexual tension...

There was the perfect amount of dominance without becoming abusive. Oliver was broken and I definitely could see that the connection with Maya was hurting him more than he obviously liked to let on.

...Did I mention that the sex scenes were absolutely steamy?

Maya's hurt is just as evident as Oliver's. With the suicide of her mother, she's constantly blamed herself for the loss. She doesn't have many to discuss these feelings with and I found myself connecting with her from when I was her age and having the same feelings.

As feelings get twisted and the connection Oliver has to Maya grows more entangled, Oliver does the only thing he thinks will work and DAMN I was holding the edges of my Kindle tightly during these last chapters.

All I can say is, STAY for the end. Oliver and Maya's story is DEFINITELY one to read and this erotica was definitely one of the better ones I've read in a long time!
5/5 Stars


~*~ Monster Stepbrother ~*~ 
His dark obsession runs deep. 

He’s obsessed with her. 
She’s addicted to him. 
Two damaged souls. 
Will they heal or ruin one another? 

How does a girl go from being Daddy’s precious doll to feeling like a filthy whore? 
Easy really. When my father remarries it changes the course of my life and everything becomes . . . complicated. 

My new stepbrother is a monster who hates me. Unapologetic, controlling, and brazen, he’s intent on making my life a living hell. He blackmails me into doing things I never thought I’d do. Illicit things. 
Oliver King makes the rules. Whenever he wants. However he wants. Wherever he wants. 
My head screams this is wrong, but I can't resist giving in to forbidden desires. 
I’m his possession, his toy, his ultimate pleasure. 
He’s never letting me go. I’m his dark obsession. 
My dirty addiction to my stepbrother grows to a dangerous level. Am I sick to crave more from the man who has made me his? Or should I escape and run as far away as possible? 

My name is Maya Childs, and this is my story. 

Not appropriate for readers under 18. 
Contains dark and sensitive subject matter that may make readers uncomfortable.

Crimson Shadow: Noir ANIMATED Review

Crimson Shadow: Noir ANIMATED Review

Crimson Shadow: Noir is an incredibly dark tale about the story of Xander Stryker. As an origin story, I was deeply moved by Xander's struggles. The book starts right up where we're taken into the Xander's world and his nightly rituals with a pair of custom revolvers and his ritualistic game of russian roulette.

After reading that scene, I admit that the dark elements of Xander's life were really unsettling and this story is definitely not for the faint of heart.

However, once you delve deeper into the book you find a glimmer of hope for Xander as he's presented with a new world that he had always been a part of. Xander seeing this chance welcomingly takes it and begins to see a bright glimmer to his life.

But, the author being titled "The Literary Dark Emperor" of course wouldn't let that be how it ends and that glimmer is dashed away from Xander as he awakens into his new life in a (pardon the pun) "Crimson Shadow".

However, the story moves on and Xander begins to accept his calling (and even rekindles his friendship with a female witch named Estella!)

This novel is filled with action-packed fight scenes that really give a cinematic tone to the writing and each fight scene made me more excited to see how Xander handled the next enemy thrown at him.

The ending fight scene is a fight you do not want to miss!!

Look out, vampires! Xander Stryker is making his debut!!
