Lachlan's Protégé

Lachlan’s Protégé by V.F. Mason
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

thumbnail_LACHLAN_Teaser6

I was really looking forward to “Lachlan’s Protégé”; it had one of those blurbs that was just oh so intriguing and it certainly didn’t disappoint capturing and retaining my interest ever so easily.
I didn’t like this quite as much as “Psychopath’s Prey” but have to say it was a very close second indeed.
I adored the way this story was told with present time and flashbacks and it certainly managed to keep me on my toes as I was never quite sure of Lachlan’s hidden agenda and what his ultimate
end-game was.
This author is an expert in misdirection and as usual, managed to weave a dark entangled web that I really enjoyed trying to decipher.
I did prefer Lachlan in all his unapologetic depravity than Valencia with all her fresh wholesomeness but that’s mainly because I am more drawn to the dark in all its shades of grey.
I really do love me a story that takes a walk on the dark side, managing to keep me off balance with its potential.
I really did inhale everything about this deeply decadent story and the only reason I removed half a star here was that I didn’t always feel the connection between Lachlan and Valencia as deeply as I could have.
I feel that this may have been due to how much back-story we are given here.
No matter I still really enjoyed this.
My only other criticism here was the ending I would have prefered maybe a bit more interaction between our Main two characters; I felt that I didn’t quite get given the closure I needed with these two.
Saying that the finale was also pure genius didn’t see that one on the horizon.
All in all, this was a fab read That I really enjoyed and I am happy to recommend.
On a final note just wanted to add that there are some triggers here that may bother some readers; this is at its heart a dark read so don’t expect some sweet vanilla story as this is definitely not what you’re going to receive here.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of “Lachlan’s Protégé ” of which I have reviewed voluntary.

The Darkness In Faith(1)

🌹BOOK REVIEW🌹

Release Date-2nd May 2018
Genre-Erotic Horror
Kindle Edition-381 Pages

Book 1: My name is Faith: Tortured sex slave turned brutal murderer. Men have abused my body for inhuman pleasures, hurt me and made me feel helpless. But now…

They fear me. I wish I could say that it is all for the good of the world that I kill them slowly and give them a taste of what they have made others feel, but that would be a lie. Turns out, I have a lust for blood and get off on making THEM my slave. They may be way past being offended at that point, but I sure enjoy my living dead boys.

Just one small problem. I am falling for my newest conquest and don’t know anymore if I want to tie him up and kill him slowly. He supposedly sexually assaulted a woman horribly ten years ago and is currently on parole for the crime, but something about those genuine sea green eyes and that beguiling mouth makes me weak. I still want to tie him up but what I want to do to him- will make us both scream.

Something about his darkness and pain calls to my own, and he knows I could kill him at any time, but still fights to possess me in every dripping, consuming and tantalizing way.

Come inside if you dare where real sex slave stories are my inspiration and I’ll tell you the story of a serial murderess and the life altering events that made her a Lover of the Dead.

Book 2: How can I admit to myself that I have fallen for the one thing I fear the most? I should kill him, as I have visited bloody death on many others just like him but…

Instead I have let him inside me. Deeply, painfully and with all-consuming psychotic passion. My body hums when he hurts it, as he’s brought out a hidden side of me that thrives off his rough touch. I have never felt so alive.

Here he is by my side as we travel the country, staying in the finest hotels and savagely getting revenge on those who have sexually tortured me. What a ride. Kill, rough sex. Try to kill each other, more rough sex… And repeat.

But something changes my dark lover with each kill and I fear I will lose him forever. The blood thirsty beast he struggles to keep locked up within thrashes against its cage, and I don’t know how much time we have left together. Oh, but I WILL make the most of it.

Book 3: My enemy becomes my lover…

“Please let me go,” I say.
He takes a deep breath. “I can’t. Why don’t you see that you are meant for me? You’re a killer, you’re a sexual predator, and my dark soul demands I take yours. I need to **** your body mercilessly and make you scream from beneath me. I have no choice because I’ve never wanted anything so bad.”
His lips move to ear. “Say you want me, Faith.” He sucks my neck into his mouth and the ache feels good. He leaves bruises. “I will do anything.”
I cringe and stare into nothingness. This is my way out. If he has become obsessed with me because I escaped him years ago, because his best friend wants me, and because I challenge him, then I can use it to escape. I refocus and allow my demoness to take hold. “I shouldn’t want you James.”
He moves inside me, lifting me up and forcing me back down over his thickness and I cry out. “But you do,” he breathes.
I won’t make it that easy. “You excite me. You make my body sing and scream at the same time.” His **** rubs through me igniting incredible sensations and I haven’t lied to him yet. “I want you,” I say breathlessly. He feels so good because this is so bad and my sanity is being pushed to the limit. I run my fingers across the shaved sides of his head and rip his blond hair backward. I ride him hard. “You’re beautiful,” I say, trying to breathe. “Because you tear me to pieces.”
He grasps my hips, the killer who has never gotten off without hurting a woman first, and digs his fingers into my flesh. With a desperate kiss, his eyes roll back and his body tenses in anticipation.

The Darkness in Faith Banner

REVIEW COPY
Serial Murderess Series

so I’m going to do things a bit different here and review all three books in the Serial Murderess Series together but giving my brief impression on each instalment.
So I’m not normally one for trigger warnings but with this, you need one; this is dark depraved sick stuff proceed with caution.
If like me that sentence is like honey to a bee just be aware that at times this was even a bit too much for me and that’s something I don’t usually say.
There is Rape, murder, torture, necrophilia, cannibalism the list goes on and on so please do take my warning seriously there is the blackest stuff imaginable between these pages.
So this is a hard one, on the one hand, I love to push the boundaries of my tolerances, but here I wasn’t just giving them a nudge I was flat out annihilating and totally flattening everything in its path.
So If you want to just dip your toe into darker waters this isn’t the series to start with; this is completely hardcore.
This series is mainly told from the POV of Faith herself a product of her horrific life experiences in her case a history of rape, torture and slavery.
This girl has some serious issues which have resulted in her fascination with blood and death.
She’s a self-made serial killer who preys on the predators themselves.
Her moral compass is so off course when it comes to dispensing her own personal brand of justice.
So what happens when this necrophilia loving serial killer meets what could be her match made in heaven.
I’m gonna stop you right there; this is not a romance; this is so far from the warm and fuzzies than your ever going to get; Brandon the male interest here, is so not what I would even label; what we like to call an anti-hero.
This is more a psychotic bloody Bonnie and Clyde type journey cross country where Faith and Brandon embark on an all-out pilgrimage to annihilate every person that has ever hurt Faith in the most imaginative ways possible.
The go-to phrase these two start to employ.

This is going to be the most fun we’ve had yet

But this is also a downward spiral into the Pitts of insanity and what happens when you give your demons such a free rein.

The Darkness in Faith
is the onset of the journey where we learn what shapes our two lovers into the individuals they have evolved into.
This is perhaps the mildest of the three books almost a build up to more gruesome events.
It’s still bloody graphic as hell though so be prepared for anything.
In This instalment, we leave Brandon and Faith ready for there mission ahead.

Darkly Dreaming Faith
Portrays there antics as each kill goes down more each imaginative than the last.
Brandon and Faith fall deeper down the rabbit hole with each occurrence sending Brandon on a downward spiral into insanity.
In fact, here it becomes very apparent that Brandon is so much more than he has previously revealed to his new partner in death.
Finally culminating in Faith through self-preservation contemplating going rogue on his butt.

Vicious Faith
The final book in the trilogy and perhaps the most graphic and depraved of all three.
Here all roads come to a head and number five on Faiths list “Gas Mask” in dramatic style manages to turn the tables on Faith.
This was my favourite of the three books and though there where things I had kinda guessed previously here; there were still many shocks that snuck up and caught me unawares.
I adored the shocking conclusion we were given here.
It had an almost karmic justice to it.
Here is where we discover that there are no heroes only predators and events do come full circle in such a shocking finale.

This is not a romance.
There are no heroes in this trilogy only innocents and evil.
This was not easy reading at times but I persevered as I wanted to know the final outcome.
My rating here really reflects my unease with the content matter involved.
“The serial Murderess series” itself really pushed the envelope with me in regards to my comfort levels.
It’s an unapologetic jaunt through a dissolute and perverted playground.
Where everything good and wholesome has been stripped back to the bone and the only thing left behind is viciousness and cruelty.
Enter if you dare but be warned the passage your about to traverse is anything but pretty.
The road ahead of you is paved in blood and tears.
I’m not going to give this a yay or a nay just a give this a go if you think you can handle it and prepare to be appaled.
And again remember my original caution.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of “Serial Murderess Series” of which I have reviewed voluntary.

A teenage serial killer with a mysterious past. 
The deadly hunter sworn to protect her. 
Secrets, lies and a shot at redemption. 
It all begins with a kiss. 

When 16-year-old Nic Rutherford heads out for a night on the town, she brings a full arsenal. Her best weapon? A deadly kiss that can take down the biggest game around—humans. Two-legged predators don’t stand a chance once she makes lip to skin contact. But her blessing is also a curse, one that Nic fears will inadvertently harm anyone who gets too close—her aunts, her best friend, or the mysterious new boy who possesses strange abilities of his own. 

Aiden Jager has the one thing Nic can’t resist—information. With his help Nic unearths answers about her own murky past along with the key to a hidden world where magic thrives and the impossible becomes reality if one is willing to pay the ultimate price. Beware, for once the door is open, there’s no turning back. 

WARNING MATURE CONTENT: While this story is loosely based off the story of Sleeping Beauty, it is the dark folktale version of the story. Themes include sex, rape, violence, vigilante justice and cold-blooded murder. Explicit language is an added bonus.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-1/5/18

I really enjoyed The Goodnight Kiss; it totally managed to engage and hold my attention and I was hooked from the minute I opened this and started reading.
I initially was bouncing between a four or a five-star rating as there were some very slight issues here for me, but this did such a great job of entertaining me and was also glued to my hand throughout that I went with my initial gut feeling and awarded it its full five stars.
The plotline here revolves around sixteen-year-old Nic Rutherford a human with a strange ability to deliver a deadly death sentence with her kiss.
Adopted by her mysterious aunts and with no memories of her time before they entered her life Nic lives her life hidden in plain sight.
Covering up her inner nature with the help of teenage camouflage Nic embraces her inner killer all with a little help from her adopted family.
When a strange boy joins her school that only she recognises as out of place; Nic knows life as she knows it is about to take a huge side-step and Nic along with her new but strangely familiar friend is about to embark on a journey that she may or may not ultimately survive.
So this was a cool read that I found so easy to get lost in; it had great characters alongside a fantastic backdrop of mythology blended with fantasy.
I have a huge soft spot for anything that dabbles in the mythology ballpark and this went one step better blending into the mix Mythology, fantasy and the Fae so I was in heaven.
I found the fact that Nic herself claimed herself as A-Sexual; (a first for me in fiction) to be such a fascinating prospect, especially considering the backdrop of events here that later come to light.
Maybe that past even contributing to her current state of affairs.
I also loved Aiden Jager as well but did think that some past events could have been avoided if he had just stepped up to the plate and dealt.
He was not just a victim of others manipulations he also played a main role and the martyr mantle, in my opinion, is very overrated.
I understand the manipulations he was up against but he went in with his eyes wide open so totally new the score so to speak.
I guess what I’m trying to say is “The Goodnight Kiss” for me deals with imperfect individuals and nobody here was exactly blameless.
Trying to be vague here folks but it was the above that really made me consider dropping this a star.
So this was quite different to what I was initially expecting but in a totally positive way.
It had just the correct balance of ingredients to appeal and I’m really looking forward to the next instalment and seeing where this may actually go next especially in regards to the new tentative romance that is slowly blossoming between Nic and Aiden.
I was ecstatic this didn’t conclude on a massive cliffhanger, we are just left with such anticipation for the next instalment.
This was for me a fantastic start to what looks to be a great new series.
So I was provided with an ARC of “The Goodnight Kiss (The Unseelie Court #1)” By Netgalley of which I have reviewed voluntary.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-17/4/18

So “Psychopath’s Prey was my first book by this author and I am actually blown away by how much I enjoyed this.
I really can’t wait to have a good old nose into what else this author has to offer.
So I’m going to start by saying that this is one ARC I was gagging to dig into and quite often when this happens my expectations are shattered when the book doesn’t quite live up to the hype I’ve built up in my head.
Not so here, I would even go as far as to say “Psychopath’s Prey has exceeded my initial excitement.
Now that doesn’t happen very often.
So where to start and how much to reveal, that’s a toughy as I want to rave from the rooftops but will try to keep myself in check as have no wish to spoil this fantastic plot for others.
Well here goes.
This is told from multiple POV’s which I loved as I felt this gave a well-rounded multi-faceted outlook on all involved here.
I also loved the way the chapters were laid out keeping you in the dark to Psychopath’s true identity until that final reveal.
I swung back and forward throughout, changing my mind numerous times as to who it was and even when it was finally revealed I still wasn’t really sure in myself who to actually suspect.
Now I am a massive Criminal Minds fan and have watched all thirteen seasons of the show, you could have tickled me pink that this was partially set in the BAU I was like a kid at Christmas a definite front-runner in terms of draw for me.
I also found there was a fantastic array of side characters portrayed here, all vivid and well researched with great depth to them all.
In fact, that was a great strength here I don’t think for me there were any weak links at all.
This was not really in my opinion that dark, but I suppose that’s all in your perception.
I have experienced some very dark and depraved fiction, so found this myself to be relatively mild.
That may not be the case for you, that is one you will have to measure for yourself.
I did wonder near the end of this how events were going to play as I couldn’t see how the end game was going to be achieved.
I was pleasantly surprised and was also impressed at how the author wrapped things up so nicely.
So there you have it, I really cant recommend this enough, give it a go.
Psychopath’s Prey is a little gem that I enjoyed immensely hope you do too.

“I spy, with my little eye, a little mouse that’s about to die.

So, Oh My this final instalment of this thrilling psychological mind fuck certainly didn’t disappoint. I think I need some serious help I’m absolutely addicted to this cat and mouse game between the wolf and poor Morgan.

So right, I’m gonna keep this compact and vague as this is one you just have to immerse yourself and drown in.
This series has got to be one of my all-time favourites.
It had the ability to keep me connected to the wolf, Morgan and Reid even between episodes.
I’m sad to finish but also elated to reach the end of the line here.
I was suitably impressed with the intricacies of this plot, it was ingeniously thought out.
This had everything it needed to keep my attention as a reader and really does stand out in an immense sea of fiction.
This is one series that you really need to give a chance too it would be a crime to miss out here.
Morgan, Reid and the wolf I’m super sad to be saying goodbye to you all.
But also so elated to be finally getting some closure.
I will miss you all.

So Broken (Voyeur Book 3) was slightly different from previous reads.
here we take a little step back from the madness and get to experience some of the past and how Ivy and Noah Met.
So this is told from Ivy’s POV and there is more of the same sort of games we have had in the previous books.
This instalment focusses a lot on the connection already established between these two.
And I have found with each segment of the story we are given that there is a stronger deeper thread connecting our pair of lovers.
You can really feel all the heartfelt emotion in Broken.
Maybe expounded also because of the circumstances, kind of like a pressure cooker waiting to let off steam.
These two have only each other to rely on here and there forced containment seemed to bring a sense of intimacy much faster than the norm.
Broken takes it a tiny step further and we get a glimpse of the puppet masters pulling the strings behind the scenes.

SICKOS!!!!

There are also new creepy players introduced here the usual kinky shenanigans and before the final curtain falls Ivy gets to share her suspicions about the identity of one of there captors with Noah.
Is she right?
Can’t wait to find out.

The previous novella ended on a bit of a cliffhanger and I was like
NO NO NO! I’m going to have a bloody heart attack.
I need the next book like now.

 photo tumblr_inline_o82v7ua2Zf1ttjkhl_500_zpsio8imoqx.gif

So as per usual the mystery and ominous atmosphere were ever present here and we do finally get some answers, but these only serve to muddy the waters more.
Throwing up more questions than actual resolutions.
This author has a major talent for misdirection, I’m like seriously impressed.
I’ve actually made a list of my suspects, like seriously, wrote them down and all.
I cant actually remember when I was last this invested in a story and the way this has been delivered is pure genius.
I have said previously that I’m not a fan of these novella type series.
Well, prepare to make an exception with “The Game Of Life” series because its brilliant compulsive reading.
That you will be glued to from start to finish.
And On a side note still, no bloody clue who the wolf is I do have my suspicions.
Not that I have anything concrete to base them on I’m just stabbing in the dark here.
Floundering really.
I do want to solve the puzzle of the wolf and who he is but then again I will be sad when this is all over.
So I kind of don’t as well.
In the meantime, I have my stink eye on absolutely everyone, I’m watching here.

This is told again from Three points of view.

And my heart was in my throat throughout this intense experience.
This really is a rollercoaster
So buckle in for the ride folks as it’s definitely gonna be epic.

Will Hurley was an attractive, charming, and impressive student at Dublin’s elite St. John’s College-and Ireland’s most prolific serial killer. Having stalked his four young victims, he drowned them in the muddy waters of the Grand Canal. Sentenced to life imprisonment when he was just nineteen, Will is locked away in the city’s Central Psychiatric Hospital.

Freshman Alison Smith moved to the Big Smoke to enrol in St. John’s and soon fell hard for Will Hurley. Her world bloomed … and then imploded when Liz, her best friend, became the latest victim of the Canal Killer-and the Canal Killer turned out to be the boy who’d been sleeping in her bed. Alison fled to the Netherlands and, in ten years, has never once looked back.

When a young woman’s body is found in the Grand Canal, Garda detectives visit Will to see if he can assist them in solving what looks like a copycat killing. Instead, Will tells them he has something new to confess-but there’s only one person he’s prepared to confess it to. The last thing Alison wants is to be pulled back into the past she’s worked so hard to leave behind. Reluctantly, she returns to the city she hasn’t set foot in for more than a decade to face the man who murdered the woman she was supposed to become.

Only to discover that, until now, Will has left out the worst part of all

The Liars girl tells the story of Alison Smith who when we catch up with her is living and working abroad after the events that occurred at Dublin’s elite St. John’s College.
Alison’s First love Will Hurley was arrested and incarcerated as the prolific serial killer terrorising the college campus.
His last victim being none other than Alison’s best friend Liz.
Causing young Alison to flee in distress and disbelief abroad.
She hasn’t set foot over here since.
Fast forward ten years, all has been quiet since will’s arrest until a new young girl is found.
Is it a copycat or is the real Canal killer back to continue his spree of ten years previous.
Will now locked up in a hospital claims to have new evidence to help the police.
But he will only speak to Alison.
So this was a fantastic read that I really enjoyed It kept you guessing throughout and had many twists and turns that I never saw coming.
The Liars girl is one of them stories that sucks you in and is impossible to put down until the bitter end.
The book was played out in a now and then perspective giving us a great insight into the events of ten years previous.
This also really helped me to understand and empathise with Alison
We also get to experience the present killer’s thoughts this was a really nice touch which I loved.
There was also a brilliant twist at the end that blindsided me so Bravo, really didn’t see that one coming.
So to round this up “The Liars Girl” is a totally engrossing tale that I can’t recommend enough.

I really loved Chased by Clarissa Wild.
From the moment I picked this up, I was invested.
Chased is basically Syrena and Chase’s story and tells events after Chase purchases Syrena from an illegal sale.
I’m going to try and keep this short and sweet.
So I do love me a twisted deviant hero and with Chase, we have this in spades.
Chase may be all sorts of wrong but he is also all sorts of right for Syrena.
I wasn’t quite sure initially exactly what he was hoping to accomplish with Syrena but as things progressed further along it quickly became apparent.
Chase lives by his own agenda of rules and because of these, he was swiftly falling into a black hole.
Syrena for him was a test to see how far down this rabbit hole he had fallen.
Syrena herself was much harder to get a handle on, but I believe she was just the right side of feisty.
Too much and maybe there would have been more of a power struggle between these two.
I think the balance was just right here.
And with Chase ultimately looking for innocent and vulnerable, well whats more so than a blind girl.
I also think Chase was initially surprised at how independent Syrena actually was, she wasn’t quite the shrinking violet he was ultimately expecting.
I also loved how there was a deeper story running underneath, a river flowing that we gradually became more aware of as events unfolded.
This for me delivered one hundred percent.
My only slight gripe would be that I was not completely convinced about syrena being blind and able to hold down a waitressing and cleaning job.
It doesn’t seem likely in my opinion.
But that’s just my opinion and I could be wrong.
So Chased delivered on all fronts for me and I found it to be an engrossing actioned packed read that I enjoyed immensely.
And I have no problem recommending this to others.
I hope you give Chased a go and enjoy it as much as me.
one final thing, From other reviews I’ve gathered this is part of an ongoing series.
I read this as a standalone and had no issues at all following along.

🌹ARC-BOOK-REVIEW🌹

Release Date-15th February
Genre-Dark Psychological Thriller
Kindle Edition-107 Pages
Publisher-Obie Books

“The Wolf has played me for a fool.” 

I’ve no clue who is hunting me, but he demands I complete his tests. I fear if I can’t figure out his identity, he’ll kill me just like he said. 

His eyes were blue the last time I looked into them, but now when he glares at me they’re green. Is the Wolf playing dress up? Or are there two monsters who have stolen me? 

“Did you think I’d make this easy for you, Red? Are you ready to play again?” – The Wolf 

I want out of this nightmare, and the only way to do that is to win. 

I need to win.

Oh, My Bloody God!!!
My heart is still pounding like a jack-hammer this series is turning my hair white through sheer fright.
It Just keeps getting better and better the more I read and Just when I think I might have turned a corner and worked it out, it changes directions on me and leaves my scratching my head in confusion.
So yeh I think its safe to say I haven’t got the bloody foggiest.
I’m not usually into these serial type novella’s but I’ve got to admit this one has me totally hooked.
And when I finish one instalment I’m gagging for the next.
And Three Breaths is certainly action-packed.
And Morgan is definitely not going down without a fight, I was cheering her on near the end of this.
Practically shouting you go, girl, stick him where it hurts.
Three Breaths again switches between Morgan, Reid and the Wolf’s viewpoint so you actually feel fully immersed in the whole story.
Poor Reid’s imaging’s of Morgan’s fate was so visual in their descriptions it sent actual chills down my spine.
The Wolf’s hate and Venom, for whatever reason practically froze my veins with its chilling intensity and poor Morgan’s battle for her existence echoed through every turn of the page.
Though this is short the emotion and feeling packed in this is so immense, I was nervously wringing my hands throughout.
So Four Hearts here I come, this tale is just so addictive I feel like I’m on some awful journey that I need to see through to the bitter end.
I just need poor Red/Morgan to catch a break and outwit the Wolf.
Really can’t wait for the next frightful episode.
