Monique ~ Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews
This book is Excellent... And. So. Fucked. Up! Yet it is compelling, edge of the seat stuff that you are unable to put down. It will have you in tears, angry and frustrated at the injustice of it all and will leave you in turmoil, without any coherent brain activity for some time after...


It hits you hard and fast - there is no reprieve, no time for quiet contemplation, the intensity of the story so overwhelming it hurts... It is both terrifying and disturbing to see Matt and Dougie suffer the a...more
No, Dougie, no!

There are no spoilers from Auction, but there will inevitably be some from Captured. (Contains cussing and explicit scenes.)

Ok, I thought that maybe, by episode 2, I’d be used to the writing style and maybe numbed to be able to handle the brutal content. I was wrong. It was even worse than episode 1. And though I have to thank Rachel & Heidi for talking me through some of the story, including spoilers, to make me feel “ok” with reading on, a part of me feels ANGRY at them for doing this to Dougie and Mat…for taking it this far! (<-not angry at you ladies…just ANGRY! …I know, that makes no sense…)

Brothers Mat & Dougie survived a week in the brutal hands of their captors. Can they possibly endure what comes next? What lengths will they go to in order to survive?

The purpose behind the kidnapping and incarceration of the brothers finally becomes clear - they are to auctioned off as pets to the highest bidder.
Worn down by days of unrelenting fear and abuse, Mat and Dougie are packaged with the same ruthless efficiency as any consumer product: Dougie the pretty boy twink, Mat the rabid
Between 2,5 and 3 stars.

The book is well written and I understand everybody who can't put it down. It could be an addictive read if you like an extremely dark disturbing mind-fucked erotica. Normally that is one of my favorite genres too.
But I decided for myself after reading the second sequel to stop.

I need my light at the end of the tunnel.
I don't see it here.

And as I have already explained to one of my GR friends Lisa, I need another level of love relationship, an intense love between brot...more

The second instalment of The Flesh Cartel series was in my opinion even better than the first!

This was another traumatic read for my already frayed nerves from reading the first instalment.

Dougie and Mat's relationship and love as brothers is further revealed in this volume. When one of them feels pain the other cries out to stop it from happening. Each wanting to take the punishments themselves rather than the other half of their flesh and blood having to suffer the unspeakable wrongs being ca

Okay, so this isn't really going to be a proper review, because this story is not finished. This instalment of The Flesh Cartel takes us up to the auction, where Mat and Dougie are purchased by Nikolai.

And holy crap -- I need to read the rest! I need to know what happens when Dougie and Mat are trained by Nikolai.

Because at the beginning, you see, Nikolai sees Dougie and thinks he has "...a mouth for reciting poetry with his head in his master's lap. And a mind for it, too" which made me cauti...more

I can't rate this book because I know I would enjoy it but I got to one point in the book and I just couldn't go farther with it.

So what did I do? I read the reviews of all the other books so I would know what happened.

I'm so ashamed at myself *hanging head low*

I don't know if it was the abuse of M/M or what? I can deal with abuse in a book and I can deal with M/M - but the two combined?? I don't know - it's not like my stomach was queasy or I would flinch while r...more

Flesh Cartel #2 Review - 4.9 stars.

I liked this installment better than the first, although it was equally harsh, just not as nauseating, again with that cleaning scene from #1! Here we have Dougie and Mat again being put through the ringer, their stay in the slave holding-cells wearing both of them down as they are constantly abused by the guards as well as fretting over what is happening to each other. Then one day they are taken to be prepared for the auction - primped and prettied up for Dou...more
This book moves the main characters into their cells, the cleaning and prep process, and then finally the auction. Can't say I loved it or even liked it. I didn't feel ripped apart or saddened by the injustices done to these characters, and I definitely should have been. Again I don't think the character development helped me grow attached to Dougie and Mat.

Like my problem with these books is it's all cliches. It's foreign bad guys with maniacal laughing madames who of course are beautiful. The...more
All I can say is...

I think I hate you Dougie...
Dark and delicious! It can only be 5 stars for this episode! These books have a bit of almost everything in them!
***If you haven't read the first episode, see my review for The Flesh Cartel #1: Capture. These mini-episodes should be read in order.***

The Flesh Cartel: an international, multi-billion-dollar black market that trades in lost souls. Or more specifically, their bodies.

This story is darker than dark. It’s disturbing, terrifying, and the things that happen to Dougie and Mat are completely inhumane. This story hurt me on a very deep and painful level. I didn’t think it could get any worse than the...more

This review can be found at The Armchair Reader.

Auction, episode two of The Flesh Cartel and the end of season one, picks up right where episode one, Capture, leaves off. Where Mat and Dougie just finished being processed into the slave facility, they are now being held there. Beaten, raped and tortured, both Mat and Dougie are struggling with their new lives with nothing to wear and nothing to sleep on and the constant threat of more abuse. While Mat is still a fighter, he’s losing the strength...more
Being in the system was never easy. Now that Mat and Dougie are older that should be behind them, right?

Even tho they are grown men the system is still fucking with them. The fact that they have no one has attracted the wrong ppl. Ppl they are trying now to escape but can't.

These brothers are called holes. Holes to be fucked and prodded for never their pleasure. Their hourly torture is hard to stomach but they are strong, or are they?

They both want to protect the other but in the game of slave...more

Torture, beatings, double penetration, humiliation and sexual exhibitions, what more can we have in this book? Ah yes, rape and more double penetration. WOOT! The second in this serial is a tasty fast read. Want a quick fix in non con slavery? This is the book for you.

In the dynamic duo's second installment, the auction preparation is taking place. The continued beat downs and breaking of the brothers were highlighted before the auction. Nothing too graphic, but enough to get the idea. It's not...more

I don't really know what to say that hasn't already been said by the others who, along with me, were eager to read this as soon as possible to see how and where things were going with this story. We now have a bit more of an idea, but the road to get there is not pretty. This segment pulled me in even more so than the first. The writing is fabulous. You feel as though you are right there witnessing everything from the side of the room. It is heartbreaking and mind boggling to think there are peo...more
Jo * Smut-Dickted *
A stunning next chapter in the continuing saga of Mat and Dougie. This one is all about the auction of the men. As each is prepared differently for the auction you get a tantalizing taste of one of the bidders. I am still very much invested in Mat because of his strength. It is much more interesting to me to see how far someone can be pushed - although Dougie is coming up fast and I think there is more steel in him than we realize. Everything I said in my original review of Chapter 1 holds - can...more

A heartbreaking, intriguing read that left me stunned and curious.

As the blurb stated, in this episode we get to discover the reason behind Mat and Dougie's capture. And I have to tell you this one was as brutal as the first one. At least I already knew what to expect and prepared myself mentally for the onslaught. I'm glad I did, because this book goes places that I never could have imagined.

We start right when we left off in Episode 1. Dougie and Mat are brought to their 'rooms' and it begins....more

This story contains explicit violence, forced incest, and non-consent.


The Flesh Cartel #2: The Auction begins where Capture left off. And, oh, my god, I knew it would get worse, I knew the worst was still to come, but the reality was even harsher than I tried to prepare for. This installment will tear you up inside. Consider yourself forewarned.

As the title implies, in The Auction we witness more of the brutal

Firstly, I have liked these authors others works, but this was a waste of money. After reading the 1st "episode" and being disappointed I thought perhaps I'm judging too quickly so 2.99 later for what is literally 2 chapters maybe 3 in a normal Ebook and I am disappointed again. I have no problem with beyond the pale but this series is flat. There is no personality, no back story, no character development. You are now on book 2 and still don't get the relationship between the brothers, you don't...more
These are definitely dark, uncomfortable SHORT reads. Again, they push my hard limits. The fuss I have about this series is that each story is way too short, making it a long time waiting for the next installment AND making it an expensive read. I realize authors need to make money but you can't help feeling taking advantage of with stories this short and this expensive. Just my humble opinion.

This book is about the brothers not really understanding why they are be...more
Just had to buy this straight away after reading book one. Gained a guilty pleasure from this story of the submissive Dougie and his intensely protective brother Mat being brought to sale at the slave auction. Got to wait with baited breath for next episode to be released now.

I'm not rating this, because I read the next two installments knowing already that I had lots of problems with the first "book" of the series. It was more an attempt at giving the story a chance, as the single "books" are really not much more than a few chapters and contain no true arc, no ending or solution in any way. However, after having by now paid at least double the price for a fourth (!) of a normal book I think I will call it quits now.

I really can't understand the purpose of this story...more

Another well done addition to the series. The writing is griping and the story line, while not for the fainthearted, is intriguing.
