‘I’m gonna fucking kill you for scaring me like that,’ she snarled. ‘We have business to take care of,’ Rushe said. ‘Then I’m gonna fuck you ‘til you b‘I’m gonna fucking kill you for scaring me like that,’ she snarled. ‘We have business to take care of,’ Rushe said. ‘Then I’m gonna fuck you ‘til you beg for mercy.’ Rushe bared his teeth and swooping down he hooked his forearm under her ass and hauled her up against the hard want in his jeans. ‘Think you can break me, Kitten?’ ‘Nothing but bareback from now on. You’re mine and only mine,’ Flick said, launching in to consume him again.
I loooove this new version of Flick !!
Flick and Rush are back and damn they make such a sexy couple ! Explicit Detail picks up 3 months after the events of Explicit Instruction , and we see our heroes living their life like any other couple out there . Except they are not 'any other couple out there ' ...
‘Rushe, Baby, I love you, but we came out to the pool to relax.’ ‘No, Kitten,’ he said. ‘You came here to relax.’ 'You didn’t have to come with me.’ ‘You’re wearing a bikini,’ he said, as though it required no further explanation, and actually... it didn’t. ‘If you thought I was the type to run around on you then you’d have dumped me three months ago. You’d have walked out of my studio apartment with Jansen, and I wouldn’t have seen you for dust.’ ‘If I thought you were that type, I’d have chained you to the wall weeks ago.’ ‘You have... once or twice.’
Their sexual banter aside , Flick and Rush are still learning the tricks of being a couple . With Rushe being only dependent on himself for as long as forever , but with now Flick being mixed into the equation struggles to show that he trusts her . Clearly , he doesn't want her to be a part of what he does , because its always dangerous . But Flick being Flick and not adhering to what Rushe has to say is adamant on showing him that she can deal with his job by being his partner in crime .
Once again , Scarlett Finn manages to create a web of carefully placed Liars , cheaters and deceivers .. even murderers and has our duo tackling their way out if this maze with their life and love intact .
Flick has evolved soo much from book 1 that its almost a joy to watch take the role of a badass bitch with such ease . Her love for Rushe only made her character stronger .
And Rushe .... !!! Oh my god , can the guy get any alpha than he already is ! If you thought that now , Flick and Rushe have confessed their feelings for each other , he was suddenly gonna go all hearts and mushies .. Rainbows and flowers and shit .. ? Well ..
‘You’ve been naughty, Little Kitten,’ he growled. ‘Did you think you’d get away with screwing around on me?’ ‘I didn—‘ ‘Ah,’ he said, spanking her rear while still keeping her wrists restrained. ‘You’re my whore. You don’t screw around on me. Did your pussy forget who feeds it? Is it hungry, Kitten? You fucking skank, this body belongs to me! You’re for my pleasure alone!’ He spanked her again, harder, then clenched her butt cheek in his hand, sending a burning ache throbbing through her body as pleasure shimmered to her apex. ‘I’m gonna fuck you, Kitten, I’m gonna fuck your pussy ‘til my spunk’s dripping out of you. I’m gonna fill you full, fuck your mouth ‘til your belly’s got no room for more, you hear me? Speak!’
The way I've highlighted soo many passages in this book .. Its not even funny !
I love how Flick calls Rushe ' Lover' . Not darling , sometimes ' baby' but mostly 'lover' ..
‘If I tell you everything... it could put you at risk. But there are people who will assume you know everything, even if you don’t.’ ‘Like Victor did‘If I tell you everything... it could put you at risk. But there are people who will assume you know everything, even if you don’t.’ ‘Like Victor did?’ ‘Yeah,’ he said. ‘I don’t know what to do about you.’ 'Keep me chained to your bed,’ she teased. ‘I considered that. But I like screwing you in the shower.’
Took me a while to get into the story , but when I finally did , I enjoyed it ! Flick and Rushe are such a pair . Flick is such a damsel in distress in the beginning of the book that I was kinda worried that she may be those 'door-mat' kinda heroines but as the story progressed , one could totally see the evolution in her character .
Rushe ..... oh my god Rushe ! If you love an alpha male with a dirty mouth and an attitude to boost then Rushe is the man for you !!! Lord .... he doesn't talk much but when he does ... its so intense and dangerous and exciting and arousing and .... and ...
Rushe stopped on the stairs, and the others went out of view, which clearly perturbed him. ‘You don’t want to see this.’ ‘What are you going to do?’ ‘No one touches you,’ he said, letting his gaze touch hers. ‘I love you, Kitten, god damn you woman, I love you.’ ‘I know.’ Flick took his empty hand. ‘I’ll hurt anyone who hurts you,’ Rushe said. ‘There will be consequences for anyone who tries to wrong you.’
I loooooooooved the banter that Flick and Rushe participate in whenever Flick fails to follow Rushe's interaction . Those were the parts that had me snorting out loud ..
‘Did it go well?’ she asked, but received no response. ‘Now what?’ ‘Sex.’ One syllable, and her father had called him a barbarian, how apt. ‘With anyone in particular?’ His knuckles whitened on the steering wheel. ‘I was gonna fuck you slow,’ he said. ‘Now I’m gonna wash that smart mouth of yours out with my spunk, how you feel about that?’ ‘Say ah,’ Flick said, and she countered his glare with a big grin. ‘We’re alive, Rushe. Give it to me anyway you can, while you can.’...more
“I think you like this, Tatum. I think you like everyone hearing what a slut you are for me. If I had known that, I would've thrown a party a long ti“I think you like this, Tatum. I think you like everyone hearing what a slut you are for me. If I had known that, I would've thrown a party a long time ago, you goddamn whore,” Jameson swore. She rubbed her lips together and finally looked at him, her gaze heavy. “I do, I love it,” she panted before leaning forward to kiss him. He pulled harder on her hair, breaking the kiss. “Of course you fucking do. You love everything I do to you,”
Jameson , you sexy dirty mothercreeper .. When you gonna stop ruining panties , huh ??!!
After the DISASTROUS ending in Degradation , I was dying to see where Stylo was taking this story of the most weirdest couple ever ! I have to say , my heart broke . But I wasn't angry . Not on Jamseon for bringing that bitch piece of a shit Pet to his house and not on Tate for her debacle with Dunn . But I was weeping , well not exactly weeping , but I did tear up a bit at that and I was like , ' Fuck ! How is this gonna be fixed now ?! ' ... And I have to say I kind of liked what I got in terms of the story writing on Stylo's part ... I loved that Jameson was still Jameson , but still we got to say a different side of him .
And Sanders !!!! Can we just .. like , for a minute talk about how good that man is ! Sanders has been a constant in Jameson's life and I was glad that we got a little snippet of his life pre - Jameson . And how Jameson groomed him to be the man he is today . His loyalty to both Tate and Jameson astounds me . He truly is the voice of reason in their relationship . Tate and Jameson are both hot-headed , both chalking up everything in life to sex . So it was very important for them to have someone who gave them both the kicks they deserved to get their head straight . He need his own story , his own happy ending !!!
Degradation blew my mind because of how different it was from a lot of books that I had read about Alpha billionaires with a side of kinky . Not the usual , little kinky and butt load of vanilla . No , it stayed true to its roots . Those roots being a lot of nasty kinky fuckery ! The lovable nasty kinky fuckery !!! Having said that Separation was a very different read compared to Degradation . While Degradation explored the physical aspects of Tate and Jameson's relationship , Separation was all about the emotional heartache of suddenly realizing that a relationship that was just suppose to be about sex turned into something sooo much more .
Speaking of emotional heartache , lets talk about the emotional earache that Tate managed to give me in this book . It was almost like I could hear her whining . Almost equivalent nails being scrapped on a blackboard !
I LOOOOOOOVED the Tatum O'Shea we met in book 1 .. Loved her sooo much , that I pretty much had a lady boner for her almost throughout the story . That Tate was missing in this story . Now , yes , you can say that she went through a lot and that she has all the rights to blah blah blah ladi dada ... But how much ?!!! Its like everytime she wanted to go back to being the old Tate , she'd burrow into her head and give herself a million reasons to not be the old Tatum O'Shea .. ! At one point I was all like , ' Girl , just stop already ! Fucking be happy ! ' ...
The ending was just ... I laughed out loud at one point and then groaned out loud because it turned into a big clusterfuck !
On the whole a very enjoyable read . Stylo writes with her heart on her sleeves me thinks . She is able to extract so many different emotions in a span of moments that I think I may end up giving myself a heat flash of mood swings !
Things better work out in Reparation or I might just have to ...
“I'm scared," I whispered and put the fork down. "Yeah, I know ya are. We're all gonna die, Cookie. Death is the devil you know. The better you live,“I'm scared," I whispered and put the fork down. "Yeah, I know ya are. We're all gonna die, Cookie. Death is the devil you know. The better you live, the more you piss him off, and he just hates that. Right now, you're lettin' him get his way.”
Genevieve Clare loses her parents and grandma in an accident . The love of her life and her childhood crush Ahren Finnegan becomes her solace at the time of need only to meet with an accident three months later , losing his dad in an accident . Gen decides there is no point in loving someone if death is the deciding factor in life . If death has the capability to bring grief and loss in ones life then what's the point of loving someone . So she decides to set Ahren free . Fast forward 10 years later , Ahren decides he has had enough of Gen and her antics and breezes back into her life and there my friend is where the morbid and sultry tale of Genevieve Clare begins !
I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this story . Gen is hilarious . True she finds fascination in all things morbid , but she's crazy like that . Loved and respected , she is a genuine sweetheart who hides a lot of her emotions in her heart . She is a professional mourner , so she has a many services she offers to the people requiring her services and many of them are downright weird ..
“So,” I said with a pen in my hand as I went over everything they’d filled out. “You want The Banshee and the Dancing on your Grave, Motherfucker.”
Wait till you find out what more she has to offer .
Ahren Finnegan ...
Oh man , such a sweetheart . Lord , bless his heart ! That man is dayum fine !
“I’ll call you later. I have to do some work today, too.” He kissed my cheek, which was chaste compared to what his wandering hand was doing. “You make sure that Bryce knows that this…” He caught me completely off guard when he grabbed my crotch firmly, making me gasp and soaking my clean panties all at once. “…belongs to me. ‘K?” I closed my eyes, wondering if I’d get arrested if I smothered him with my vagina in the middle of Brewster’s Bakery. “God, yes, okay.”
A fine combination of humor , steam and heart felt moments , The Morbid and Sultry tale of Genevieve Clare is the story of a man teaching a woman that to fall in love is okay even if the end destination is marked by death and of a woman with a heart of gold who finds peace and joy in the most oddest of ways ... ...more
“Holy shit, King,” I panted. “Yes,” his chest heaved with exertion, “I am your king. And don’t you ever forget it, woman.” I smiled and brushed the swe“Holy shit, King,” I panted. “Yes,” his chest heaved with exertion, “I am your king. And don’t you ever forget it, woman.” I smiled and brushed the sweat-soaked strands of long black hair from his beautifully bronzed face. “Yes. You are.”
Holy shite !
Loved loved King and Mia's story .. Out of all the different scenario's I had thought of in my head , this sure as hell wasn't one ! Loved the constant twists and surprises ... Sadly , I want more of King and Mia !
The ending kinda felt a little wobbly .. But the epilogue , damn ! I was one happy camper !! ...more
Soooo good ! All the details aside , when this series finally starts getting down to business ... It gets down reaaaaaaaally well !!
''What is it, love?" I whispered. "Jamie, I do love you." "I know it," he said quietly. "I do know it, my own. Let me tell ye in your sleep how much I love you. For there's no so much I can be saying to ye while ye wake, but the same poor words, again and again. While ye sleep in my arms, I can say things to ye that would be daft and silly waking, and your dreams will know the truth of them. Go back to sleep, mo duinne."

"Dawn ," he groaned into my mouth . " I want to fuck you so bad . I won't be able to play my guitar until I play you . " I gripped his head , my finge"Dawn ," he groaned into my mouth . " I want to fuck you so bad . I won't be able to play my guitar until I play you . " I gripped his head , my fingers lost in his curls , and was overtaken by the passion burning through me .

I don't think Karina Halle can ever write a bad book ... I've read every single book that she has written so far , and I don't think I've hated any of it . The woman I tell you , writes from her soul I feel . That being said , Sage , Dawn and Jacobs are back baby ...
My name is Sage Knightly. One of the few surviving members of the metal band, Hybrid. I’m about to embark on my first solo tour, to be the rock star I was always supposed to be. But something tells me I’m not coming out of this alive. And neither is she.
If you ask me to describe this book using a few words , you'd find me using the following .....
SCARY , FREAKY , UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE , Ummmm WTF! , SEXY , OH LORD - THIS IS SOOOO HOT , YAAAAY , Ummmm HELL NO ! , SAY WHAT , SAY IT ISN'T TRUE , WHHHHHHY And did I say SCARY !
Wow .. Wow and just wow !
If you thought that The Devil's metal was scary , then I gotta tell you , you are in for a spooktacular ride whilst on The Devil's reprise 'hell bound' express .. ! Literally !
Sage is a rockstar , but is guilt driven .. He thinks he is responsible for what happened to Hybrid and its members . To drown his guilt he constantly uses alcohol , drugs and 'senseless/mindless' fucking as his life line . Little does he know that the danger is far from over . The demons are back and this time they want Dawn . Dawn doesn't remember striking a deal with the devil , but there is no way out . They know what they want and they know how to get it ...
Can Sage save Dawn ? Or will he succumb to 'THE END' too ?? You'll just have to find that out for yourself !
u> MY THOUGHTS :
To say that I freaked out 'n' number of times while reading this book would be a.... putting things a bit mildly . Now , don't get me wrong . I love horror .. And I may cringe or squirm or have a 'think Ima gonna cover my eyes and watch/read through the space between my fingers' expression on my face , I STILL LOVE IT !
But .. Karina Halle really has a way of toying with your emotions and expressions using the paranormal forces ! It's about time she be crowned the queen of horror . Everytime she writes a new book in the EIT series , I'm all pumped up to see where she takes the readers as far as the 'horror' aspect of the story is corncerned . Similarly , I was excited to see where she takes this whole 'selling your soul to the devil ' thing , because she had mananged to scare the crap out of us in TDM . Groupies from hell , Demonic entities lurking in the shadows at night etc etc . I was all for how she's gonna up that game and I can proudly say she does not disappoint !
If I have to pick out one of my fav 'crap in your pants' moment from this book , then it would be that one scene where Sage wasn't prepared to see what he saw .. And honestly speaking , I wasn't either . I may have ended up looking somewhat like this .....
Hell , I'll say this .. You won't be prepared for it either .. Because you wouldn't even be thinking about it ! That scene was like a curveball , a cold splash of water that manages to jar your senses for a bit .. And no , I'm not gonna spoil it for you .. !
Lets talk about the characters ... Sage , you broke my heart you rocker dude you ! Sage is on a guilt trip . Constantly blaming himself for the events that transpired in TDM , Sage just made me wanna hug him and tell him that its over ! Whats done is done , no point in going on about it . But that's easier said than done . And his relationship with Dawn ! Holly Molly , while things were absolutely hot , steamy and sexy on the physical front .. Emotionally , they were both clueless about what the other felt . Some regrets , some unexpressed feelings and emotions .. always a feeling of being left out .
What really made The Devils Reprise an awesome sequel for me , was that Karina not just focuses on demons of the nether world , but also those demons that tend to reside in our heart and in our mind . Feelings of guilt , lose , uselessness , irresponsibility , not being good enough . I loved how Karina really projected the ugliness that makes mess out of a man when those above mentioned feelings makes home . And Dawn ... If you gotta be brave , that's how you do it ! I love Karina Halle's leading ladies ! They are all bad asses with a whole lot of sass !
“I don’t know how to make you understand what you do to me. Just thinking about kissing you is enough. Feeling your tongue against mine. The way you “I don’t know how to make you understand what you do to me. Just thinking about kissing you is enough. Feeling your tongue against mine. The way you taste. The sounds you make. Everything. I’ve wanted you so much, for so long, but in the way you want things you’ll never, ever have. Like no matter what I do, you’ll always be just out of reach. But when you kiss me? It’s like I’m on fire.”
Noaaaaaaaaaaaaah Shaaaaaaaaaaaw ...
This book ...
Gaaaah ! Michelle Hodkin is back for another lube-less brain fuck session , and let me tell you , she fuckin loves doing that to us .. a lot !
The Retribution Of Mara Dyer picks up exactly where The Evolution Of Mara Dyer left us , and that my friend , was in itself not a good place to begin with . Noah is dead MIA dead MIA dead ... nowhere to be seen or heard and Mara is going through hell . She finally gets a respite in the form of Jude who tells her that she needs to get out of that place ASAP and that's where this journey begins .
And what a journey .. Unexpected twists and turns . Answers to questions which have been plaguing us since the first book was released are revealed . And those answers were just ...
Let me just explain my feels and emotions to you guys ...
These may not make any sense to you now , but when you get to THAT part in the book , oh you'll be going through exactly what I'm trying to show you .. Mark my words !!!!
Compared to the previous two books , TRoMD was pretty fast paced with shorter chapters . What I loved about them was that these chapters really bought out the real Mara Dyer . The Mara Dyer we have only seen glimpses of . The Mara Dyer who is freakin scary to deal with !
At this point , I would like to dedicate a song to Noah and Mara . And I think this song is perfect for the events that occur Chapter 70 to the epilogue ...
“What are you doing?” I said faintly. He paused, nipping lightly at my fingertips. He set down my hand without letting going of my wrists, and leane “What are you doing?” I said faintly. He paused, nipping lightly at my fingertips. He set down my hand without letting going of my wrists, and leaned in. “Well.” He let go of my left hand to pull my hair back from my ear. “That's what I want to do to your breasts, one after the other. Suck, and lick, and kiss, and bite—I'd do all those things until you squirmed down to that tight little pussy of yours. And everything above and below and in between. I want to fuck you with my mouth and I want to take my time at it, until all you can say is yes and please.” He paused. “And then, when I felt like you'd asked me sweet enough, I'd lay you back down nice and gentle. Fuck you face-to-face so I can see every single reaction on that beautiful face. So I can feel you say my name against my mouth while I'm kissing you. So you can see how much I want you when I bring you to the best orgasm of your life.”
