I love a dark, suspenseful story and 'Facade' did not disappoint! If you like your books to take you on a depraved, taboo, erotic journey, then this is just the book you crave. However, if you are triggered by topics such as abuse, non-consensual sex, dubious consent, violence, and extreme psychological abuse, then you may want to keep looking.

'Facade' is a sick and twisted tale of love, obsession and betrayal. I could not put this book down. Every time I thought I had figured out what was goin

"I'm so unbelievably in love with you. I can't fucking breathe until I see you some days. I feel you in me so deep we're two halves of the same soul."


"The only thing I know is that my name is Star, and...and I'm scared."


What a truly twisted entertaining read! Our main character wakes up and doesn’t even know her own name. She is being held against her will by Dante Troy who she feels she knows while he uses her body against her and weaves stories of drugs for memory loss, human

"Façade" is a dark, twisted, unpredictable story, that for sure will blow your mind. It’s erotic, it’s thrilling and disturbing at times. It’s also confusing and intense.

"Façade" is a story you have to read without reading any reviews who may contain ( too many ) spoilers. You have to experience this mindfuckery by yourself. With all the myste

I've had this one on my TBR shelf for a while. I have to be in a mood to read one of these authors books. I knew going in I was going to be confused, have big eyes at times, fanning myself and often my mouth hanging wide open. I was not disappointed! All of that happened.
I would say this is a book that you should go into blind. I'm bad at accidentally spoiling stuff so I'm just going to say that I loved this one! I read it super fast and I'm already diving in the next o

First off, I just recently found Sidebottom and Dukey. I read Decimation of Mae aka Decimation of Di and forged an unhealthy attachment to Sidebottom, like I couldn't believe the impact of one book. THEN I read Empathy, for the love of DARK, she knocked out of the park with that one, there's another unhealthy attachment. Going into Facade, I foolishly thought, "Oh, this can't be as good as their other work, no, a lot of authors write books together, an

Wow!!! What a mind-f*ck!!

This book is so captivating… I was hooked from chapter one.... I couldn't put it down for a minute and read through the night to see how this story would unfold and I was left completely blown away....
The writing is pure genius, filled with glorious amounts of twist and turns. It was impossible to guess what was going to take place next. I would think to myself, maybe this character is crazy, maybe this shit is just a dream, and holy shit that did not just happen. Hell t

Book Review - Facade by D H Sidebottom & Ker Dukey - There aren’t enough stars in the world to review this but I have to stick at *****

So it’s around a week since i’ve read this book and i’m only now sitting down to type this out. Why is that? Have I just been too busy to put my words down, and this is the first opportunity I have?

Well, I almost dnf-ed this because I mostly just cringed at everything happening in first 30% of the book.

However, curiosity kept me there, and I'm not sorry because soon I ended up completely immersed in the story, mostly intrigued by complexity of Dante's character. I needed to know what made him do what he did and what the hell was happening.

And wow, was I in for a surprise at the end!!!

I do recommend this to everyone who likes dark and twisted, especially if you're into angry, roug

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. I needed it like I needed my next breath.
And you know what? I didn’t even read what it was about. I didn’t have to.
Knowing these two authors were teaming up to write it I knew it would be great.

OMG, I cannot say enough about this book. Loved it so hard I can hardly wait until the next one comes out. There were twists in this book that I did not see coming and I so love that in a book, as so many times you see stuff coming a mile away. This is a dark read and may have triggers for some people but if you like your reads a bit on the darker side I highly recommend this book. Awesome pairing of two great authors.

The British Dictionary defines façade as “a front or outer appearance, esp a deceptive one”.

Holy crap! FaCade is twisted... deceptively mind blowing… and on so many levels it borders on unfathomable. My head is still spinning.... I don’t think I have written a review for a DH Sidebottom or Ker Dukey book that didn’t contain WTF, and FaCade isn’t going to be the first!

Just when you think you have the plot all figured out... bam, D.H. Sidebottom kicks your ass and proves you wrong!

Dante...Dante...Dante, you are a freaking monster, rapist, evil bastard incarnate from hell! I loath you and call upon a torturous death, may you be strung up by your intestines and choke on your dick! Are you sure black widow spiders are females, cause this asshole is a viper of them!

This book is totally mind fuck. It as crazy, twisted and mind blowing. There's a lot going on in the story that I felt I don't understand until the end of it. But I liked it. You should heed the warning of author, because if you think you can't handle all of what they said, don't touch this book.

Recap: All I could say about the book is, the plot twist is amazing. Leaving you speechless and it is that kind of plot that you could never think of. I like Star/Faye and I like Dante too. However, I actually think their separation is not Dante’s fault. Guy like Dante has a lot of insecurities and I think he need second chance. Furthermore, Star is the one who didn’t find him. Is it that easy to give up on someone who you said t

Pay attention to the warnings if you decide to read this book. I really didn't like Dante at all...especially the way he treated Star. My mind was totally confused at the beginning and the ending with a cliff hanger Ugh!!!!
