Start your review of The Flesh Cartel, Season 5: Reclamation
An excellent conclusion to a series that will change you. The story of Mat & Dougie is probably one of the darkest reads I have ever read, it is so very raw - there were times I felt like I was thrown into another world. These two authors created a tale that takes you on a visceral journey; you will experience what Mat and Dougie go through from the beginning (pre-abduction, the abduction or "procurement," transport, check-in, medical and profile creation, storage, auction, awaiting pickup, tran ...more

We already know that evil always loses and good eventually will triumph. And after all the hardships the authors pamper us with a deserved and really fat happy ending. Now I can finally breathe. And while I'm still thinking about the sheer size and genius of this series, I decided to let speak the authors themself about this masterpiece.

The following is therefore taken from the epilogue.

On so many levels, The Flesh Cartel was an experiment—one that wasn’t without missteps and setbacks—but we cou

Not for the faint hearted, these books cover every kind of traumatic event you could possibly conceive in one story.

The writing is exemplar though throughout and it never felt salacious no matter how depraved or degrading the situation went to.

The final chapter sees the brothers brought out of the darkness and slowly begin the process of putting their lives back together and, while it's painful to experience, there is hope and light and love which gives a sense of peace and that moving on will b
I'm gonna start off by letting you know I won't be rating this.

I can't.

So back story: I end up in a conversation with a woman in a shop. Turns out we both love Ty and Zane from the Cut & Run series. So she says "Blah blah blah. There's a Ty and Zane cameo in this series The Flesh Cartel. Blah blah blah" I'm hoping those blah blahs were moments I wasn't paying attention and she was very seriously telling me what kind of story I would be getting myself into. (view spoiler)
I avoided reviewing this when I finished it a few months ago because I was in denial that it was all over. This is one of my absolute favorite series and I'm still sad that I have no future episodes to look forward to. I'm almost tempted to take away a star because of that disappointed feeling, but I can't because it ended exactly the way it should. This story was a hell of a ride, and I'm so glad I decided to read it despite my initial wariness.

P.S. I will love Mat forever.

Extremely hard subject matter to read. The sex slave issue that has plagued the world for millennials. This series is not for the faint of heart. This read will take readers into the very hard and dark reality of the sex slave trade. Some make it out alive and some don't. Even though this is fiction it does in fact mirror reality.

I wished I could have given this a higher rating but I couldn't with what happened between Mat and Dougie being brothers. I feel the authors went a bit to far that way

Brilliant conclusion

Mat sacrifices everything to bring Dougie home. But being rescued is definitely not the end of the suffering. They both need time to heal.

We go through their recovery process. I’m glad this was covered in the book. The aftermath is almost as bad as the actual abuse. I cried more at this part than anything else I read before. Heartbreaking pain.

But rest assured you get an HEA the brothers Doug and Mat. This story will stay with you forever. So powerful. To overcome all that

So extremely good

This series is noncon aspect, while devious enough, has nothing on the psychological aspects in this story. Those are the parts that broke me, it hurt so very good. I’ve read stories with similar topics but none have come close to this depth of feeling. This series really dives into that mental aspect of sexual slavery. It was so detailed all the pain, confusion, betrayal and sometimes hope....and then crushed hope. A book that makes you despise people that you

Over the top

I accidentally came across this series which is definitely not the genre I read. I was intrigued. I found the story line to be unique and different. The characters were well developed but I felt it was way too over the top and a littleridiculous at times .The authors threw everything at the two main characters that they can think of. It did give me a picture of bondage and yes I had to Google a few things to see if they exist and yes the do like certain cages and mouth restraints. Th

More than five stars for everyone of these books....
The conclusion was perfect the big brother Mat the lovely Mat who always thought he had to protect Doug at all times through those frightening moments and there were plenty of those..

The horrific times they had at the hands of evil .... sadists and so much more..

Out of the darkness into the light and for Mat and Doug.

Doug who had to work had to be free of Nikolai Petrovic and the megalomaniacal Allen Smythe-Kennedy.

This book is not for the faint of heart I had some reserve at first but it just sweeps you in and hold you .. it's a must read ...just find you something happy and lite to read afterwards to balance it out
Don't go into this expecting an HEA. Or anything even remotely close to a happy moment even. This is a psychosexual thriller/horror and it delivers in stunning fashion. ...more

I liked the ending. How Mat and Doug healed, albeit unrealistically, from their captivity. However, this whole series is basically reading about torture porn which is a hard NO for me.

I hate to admit that I enjoy dark, f*cked up sh!t, but I do. And this whole series is exactly that. It's probably the most f*cked up thing I've ever read, but like a train wreck, I can't look away. However... if you and your heart can withstand the whole thing, the ending is pretty satisfying. ...more
