Content Warning

Sure we love a sweet and sometimes sassy love story, but other times, we dig into a dark and twisted (maybe) romance and LOVE it.

Summary from Amazon.com

WARNING:
This book is not just dark – it’s horrific, depraved and disturbing. If you do not enjoy books containing blood, guts, taboo and more – this book is not for you Sofia: I remember the days when it was me and the ice. The jarring sounds that my skates would make when they’d slice through my frozen stage… remembering my mother’s smiling face as she watched me perform. She was so proud. She was the best. Then she was taken suddenly. I never even got to say goodbye. It was her wish that I go to Russia to discover my roots, and I did. I never, in a million years, would foresee what would happen after that.

In order to survive, sometimes you have to do things that you’re not proud of. My entire life has been a performance. At first, it was the ice.

And now… it’s behind an 8 millimeter camera.

Summary from Amazon.com

When the line between fiction and reality bleeds, there is no end to the lies or a truth to be found.It was never supposed to happen. He was supposed to remain a porn star—the source of my fantasies—in my expansive collection of torture porn. But he found me, and he only wants one thing from me. He calls it the ultimate orgasm; death.

He gives me the illusion of choice—my life or his.I thought my choice would be the end of my troubles, but it followed me to a town known for its close-minded, small population and hypocritical way of thinking.My madness lurks in the shadows. It watches me and seduces me with pretty smiles and dirty degradation. It assures me that my fantasies aren’t wrong. It tells me that they will star in all of my nightmares…and I want nothing more.

Content contains strong violence, coarse language, graphic sex, scenes of horror, and situations that most readers would find objectionable. Reader discretion is highly advised.

Summary from Amazon.com

He watches me from his window. I put on my best shows for him because I know he likes what I do. Blood, death, and sometimes things I know I shouldn’t. I study him from my balcony and remember the things he likes best, always careful to show him what I know will bring him back out for more. I’ll do anything that will keep his attention because he’s different. He doesn’t know it yet, but he’s going to be my hero. It’s his fate. We’re the same kind of monster, he and I, and I’ll make him remember what’s at stake before it’s all said and done. He’s my only hope. Just one more final game before the hunt really begins. It’s only fair.

Summary from Amazon.com

R.I.P. Part One: Rest In Peace

~ Malakai ~

On the outside, we look normal, like an all-American Christian family, but behind the walls of this church basement, we are far from it.

My mother says it's her calling, my father says it's our blessing, and my sister says it's fun. I say we're fucked.

I dont know if what we're doing is really what God wants us to do, I just know that the more we do it, the more natural it feels.

Natural.

What we're doing and the reason behind it is far from natural.

In my family, love blends with hate, duty with torment, and blood with water.

We are the Courtenay family and this is the story about how it all went wrong.

R.I.P. Part Two: Rot In Pieces

~ Adriel ~

Her actions shattered my family, leaving it half alive.
And I hate her for it.

My brother is broken. His torment suffocates him as he claws his way through the aftermath of her decisions. Despite it all, he remains by my side.

The life we knew has been gutted, rotting into a million pieces. We have no home, nowhere to go, but I don’t care because we still have each other. He’s the only one that can see beneath my flesh to touch me in my darkest places.

Our choices have taken us on a new path. A shimmering sea of blood trails behind us on our search for purpose and reason.

No matter what happens, I refuse to let anything or anyone keep us apart.

I’ll burn the world to ash before I’ll let him go.

*Trigger Warning: This book contains many triggers. If you are not comfortable reading about taboo subject matter, gore, explicit/graphic situations and disturbing content, this book may not be for you.

Reign of Ruin by Jennifer Bene

Summary from Amazon

'The priests want me to thank God, but the only thing I pray for is death.'

There is nothing before Eden. Just flashes of a time before Danielle woke up in chains, in hell, to be violated and broken.

Over, and over, and over.

They say that God honors those who serve, that each baptism is a gift, but all Danielle wants is to die.

Eden has other plans.
