Weaving a web of deceptions, tangled in the branches of lies and blowing in the wind of whispers… in other words, a complete MIND FUCK and I LOVED IT!


I have spent the last few months anticipating the release of The Flesh Cartel Episodes and since the start of my journey with Mat and Dougie my emotions and anxiety levels have been put through the wringer! However… this episode see’s us moving on from the debasement and torture and we have firmly landed in the realm of MIND FUCK!

Per Riptide Publishing:
Reader discretion advised. This title contains the following sensitive themes: [non-consent]

Fair warning, this is NOT MM Romance. This is a psycho-sexual thriller which includes rape and torture. Please proceed with that knowledge in mind.


So here's the thing. You're not only reading about the characters being controlled; YOU are being controlled. Many times throughout this series I've found myself thinking, "ah ha, I see what's going on here," only to find

Whoo! We're on the rise!

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

Nikolai Petrovic is a man of refinement. He collects fine art, enjoys gourmet cuisine, and trains boutique sex slaves for some of the wealthiest—and most morally dubious—men and women in the world.

Me: I didn't crap my pants!
Too short... needing MORE right NOW, this serialization is killing me! The hateful Nikolai continues his mind fuck of brothers Mat and Dougie. I feel just so involved with these characters..
'Nikolai thought on that for a moment - Mathias's fear had returned, but fear for his brother or fear of the needle? Both, most likely. A fine line indeed he was walking. The trick would be discovering how to keep him there, hateful but pliant, without pushing him too far again.'
Okay, well first off I have to quote Larry The Cable Guy - "Lord please forgive me and may God bless the Pygmies in New Guinea" -Larry The Cable Guy

I'm afraid I'm more like Mat. I want to kill somebody. There is no sense in me re-inventing the wheel with the synopsises. You all do a much better job at that than I.

I'll just go with feelings and right now I'm just in an irritated state of pissed off. I hate anyone or anything that has so much control. I guess I can forget ever being someone's sub.

*This is a serial series, part four of six installments. Part five releases in March!

The Flesh Cartel #4: Consequences nearly emotionally and mentally broke me. In this episode, Mat and Dougie are now under the ‘care’ of their trainer, Nikolai, where they are being trained to be perfect servants for their new masters. Nikolai must learn to train two very different slaves who require two very different things. Nikolai must find a way to break these men, but he is finding this job to be more chall

Holy crap.

So now we're into the training phase. Stupid me, this is where I thought that Dougie, at least, would begin to find -- well, not comfort exactly, but maybe an end to terror. And I know that I shouldn't be thinking "Well, when he gets Stockholm Syndrome he'll be happier" but, seriously, at this point it seems like Dougie's best option. This story twists all my logic up and completely fucks me over.

So, yeah, Dougie. I'm screwed up enough that I want for Dougie what Nikolai wants -- I w

This series has becoming oddly crack-like and, dammit, they're teasing me with chastity! I'm a little confused about Nikolai. I originally thought he bought Dougie for himself, but he keeps talking about selling him? Very confuzzling. I'm not sure I believe him though. He seems quite taken with Dougie.

"You're afraid. Maybe you even hate me. But your body wants this. Badly. I think it's time to stop fighting. It's time to give in to me, to the truth you're so desperately denying. You were made f

Niko's 1st can make your own choices, but there will be consequences...

The consequences of reading this:

A) Becoming obsessed

B) Feeling like a crazy monster, for becoming obsessed with some real fucked up shit

C) Losing all patiences with people because they won't get out of your way so you can get home and read

D) All of the above

This correct answer is D
In this episode Nikolai ratchets up the mental manipulation of the brothers as the physical abuse continues.

Realizing that the loyalty shared by Dougie and Mat is the one thing that Nikolai needs to break in both of them, he begins planting the seeds of doubt in their minds, trying to play one against the other. Dougie knows what is going on thanks to his background in psychology and is scrambling for a way to keep himself from breaking, yet his fear of pain keeps him submitting. He is also not

This is the continuation of Dougie and Mat’s story of how they were kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. They have begun their training with Nikolai who must mold them into the perfect submissives before they are sent off to their new Master.

It’s not the story, it’s definitely me. I’m just not interested in Dougie and Mat’s dilemma anymore. I don’t know if it’s all the psychological stuff, all the internal debate, Nikolai or it’s just not moving fast enough for me, but

I really wish I had the willpower to wait for this series to be complete so I could read them back to back. Even though there isn't too much time in between, waiting for the next segments is torture. And oh how I wish these were longer. Each segment gets better and better and this one is my favorite so far. There is a lot more interaction with Nikolai and the brothers, and I am loving the contrast between how Nikolai deals with Mat and Dougie. The writing and editing is flawless and smooth. I'm ...more

Another installment of the sick & twisted....and I loved every drop! Well loved is probably the wrong word, how 'bout I was enthralled thru every page.

This story was heavy on the emotional, at least for me it was. Mat is the older brother who will do anything to protect and keep his brother from getting hurt....but being separated, he doesn't know if his efforts are helping or hurting. Dougie just doesn't want to hurt anymore. He has taken to thinking every action and move he makes, wonderin

This series continues to freak me out but I can't stop reading it. Despite how horrible this story is, the writing drags me and and compels me to continue. Everything with Mat and Dougie is completely wrong and horrifying. There are no small victories here, only pain, sadness, and humiliation. Perhaps it is good that we only get the story in short pieces each month. I don't know that I could read it all at one time since there has not been one bit of happy. I'm so sad...

Still fresh writing but I hate to see the guys broken.
If you haven't read this series but are curious and can handle the darkest nastiest stuff you should try them.
I so nearly didn't because I didn't particularly want to read non stop rape.......Who the hell does right?

But that's not what there are. There are depths to these characters and situations that make them an amazing read....after four books I have this irrational loyalty to Mat and Dougie and I will read them all out of respect to them.

Ok so onto 'choices'........Pardon my language but.

I still don't know where to start.
If you have been following the series you know they are not easy read, but there was something about The Flesh Cartel #4: Consequences that gives and additional sick twist to the whole story.
Good thing I was taking notes as I was reading, because honestly this book was just too much.
It hurt, but in a complete different way. It was not about pain or abuse anymore, it was about angst. Heart clenching angst.

I am completely disturbed by how much I love this serial. At this stage I know there is no happily ever after but I want Dougie to stay with Nikolai.... I'm sick, I know.

Pre-ordered and shit, so I have the book now :D

Aaaanyways. Here's what I wrote as I was reading:
Hmm... I am torn. On one hand, I am a closet romantic and fervently wish for Mat and Dougie to get their HEA in a non-coercive manner.

On the other hand, I just find this so damn fascinating. Nikolai's narratives are highly illuminating... It's all very clever and I find myself dissecting it as I go and, in fact, calling some of the methods to be used, although how much of that is cuz I've read so much

Now we're getting to the meat of the character development, and thus, the emotional hook for the story. A very good chapter. Questions are starting to be answered even as new ones are raised. Douglas' situation is clearer, and in understanding Nikolai's dilemma about him we glean more about Nikolai himself. He is fallible and not unfeeling--essential personality elements if we are to care about him going forward, as either a villain or a hero. This chapter was an easier read than the previous, a ...more

This one felt a little like a snake sitting in a tree. You know he's watching you, you can feel him - just waiting, staring. A big part of me hoped that Mat had been pushed too far and he was now on to the other side only because I don't want to see him just this side of broken. Maybe it's selfish but I wanted to see him not be defiant, not feel, not hurt. Clearly I would not hold out like these boys have!

Well, I must say, all I have is hope. Just exactly what Nikolai says Matt and Doug should not have. Hope that they will get respite, hope that it will end with them happy. Honestly, it's a gigantic mind fuck and misery porn. But, it's the train wreck I can't turn away from till I see how it ends.

Holy hell. The title 'Consequences' sounds kind of tame... contrary to what really happens here. Full review to come with the last episode.
