Whew! This was one gory, dark book. Just when I thought that things couldn't get any worse, they did. 'Deliverance for Amelia' will make you cringe and shudder. Don't be surprised if you want to curl into the fetal position and rock yourself in a corner after reading this one. It is intense!

I don't want to give too much away, but I will say that this book kind of reminded me of 'Roman', by Kimber S. Dawn. Gabe is a cold-blooded, maniacal killer, with no remorse for his actions and no

I crave all these and find all those so damn sexy in a man until now. I was loving Gabe at the beginning of this book but this man is PURE evil. OH MY GOD....he did awful things. I went from love to hate and back again.

Nothing I say in my review will give this book any justification into how damn good this book really is. If you are into darkness....THIS IS A MUST RE

WTF did I just read? OMG not only was it insane, but seriously dark and disturbing! So my question to you is this, what is the definition of normal? Well without doing a google search, I’ll submit my own two cents. The ability to fit in and be accepted by society. Well what about a psychopath? They’re unable to correlate or connect with anyone on emotional level. Sure they model themselves for acceptance, but they’re unable to hide the beast within. Case and point Gabriel!

I started this book really liking it, however it went south. I'll try and tell you my frustrations without spoiling anything.

First I picked this book because of the two characters and how Freaken awesome it sounded. Gave was totally psychotic but I still felt like he did have real feelings for
Amelia at the start of the book and with the synopsis I just assumed Gabe would turn Amelia into something dark because it was hidden in her and yeah they end up to psychos in love. (Sigh).

4.5 stars rounded up. This is the first book that I've ever bought based solely on the beauty of the cover. It's just so pretty! Gabe was a psycho, no doubt about that.
"Some people want to fight their demons. Me? Well, I like to play with mine."
As a serial killer for hire, he delights in his job, and it's described in exacting detail in parts. There are some pretty gruesome torture scenes straight from medieval times, as were the instruments used, and poor Amelia... this was not the life she si

4 twisted, medieval torture stars!

This is NOT a love story, this is NOT a sweet story, this is definitely NOT a story for the faint of heart.
Take ALL warnings for this book seriously. It is dark, its is evil and it is graphic.

This book surprised me. I think, like so many "dark" books, I expected Mr. Evil to find his heart and be miraculously 'changed' by love. Ummmm Hell no. Gabe was a sick fucker w a fascination for all things torture. The things he did to his victims was unspeakable, and even

This was indeed a dark read. Not so much the sex scenes, but because Gabe was a twisted, psychotic murderer. I can't remember a time I've read about so many different torture instruments. Amelia really got the short end of the stick in this story. Betrayed by her father, taken by a true monster, and suffering a lot of loss. At times I thought she was really falling for Gabe and his manipulations, but then she would think about how she couldn't wait until Gabe died and I was like, "You go girl." ...more

OMG. I love dark books but this was....amazingly scary! Intense! Gabe has to be one of the scariest characters ever. Poor Amelia.
You have been warned; this is not about romance. This is a story about fear, obsession, captivity and abuse. If you are a lover of the dark side, then this is for you. If you are easily offended, then please, stay away.
Gabe's head was seriously twisted and sick and I have to admit that I loved Amelia for her strentgh.
Amazing book. The ending left me satisfied. Well don

2 ** for creative use of museum-quality implements

This book could've been so much more, but I felt like the story was held back at the same time Gabe was made too OTT. And the love triangle? - Ugh - Grow a pair, buddy!

I didn't mind the gore/torture and actually liked that this was an example of a badass that really did do bad things 'on camera' - there was no question that he was crazy and capable of all sorts of horrors, unlike a lot of supposedly bad characters that only talk your ear off abou

If you like VERY, VERY, VERY dark, disturbing erotica, you will love this book! It is seriously gory though…. by chapter 8 I had literally said, "Ugh" (as in yuck, ewe and gross) out loud several times. I read a lot of dark erotica so it takes a truly dark book to make me say, “ugh” or feel the way I felt while reading this book!

I don't even know where to start. This is the perfect example of a book that promises too much and delivers so little. I guess with books based on the darker side of humans, people usually hate them 'cause they can't handle all the abuse and it becomes too "dark"

I was not going to finish this book, It was sick, twisted, messed up, not my kind of book, and yet, I kept reading by 57 percent through the book, I knew I had to finish it. Even thought I swore I was not liking it.

It was like driving through a blizzard and going straight towards the boogy man and hell and not knowing what would happen next, or even having a clue what was around the bend, I was being taken for a ride I did not want to go on but I couldn't get my foot on the brakes. I gripped my

Dark sadistic pure evil on two legs is how to describe Gabe.

I don't usually like erotica but this one is different. I'm a horror fan and this has some serious horror elements. This story reminds me of Hannibal Lecter meets 50 Shades of Grey. While there is no cannibalism in it, Gabe's personality and mannerisms remind me a lot of Hannibal from the TV show. So it gave me a vivid picture in my head while reading.

The story is pretty relentless with what Amelia goes through, talk about not catching a break. Unlike a horror story it doesn't have the "horror-i

FAR OUT THIS IS ONE INTENSE READ! But I loved every second of the ride. My emotions were completely wrung out by the end and I know for sure that I am headed for one of a book hangover. You really do need to take heed of the author’s warning on this book. It really is not for the faint hearted. But if you can stomach dark and erotic reads, then I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

Imagine being thrown into the middle of something that you knew nothing about. This is the predicament

Dark doesn’t even start to describe what this novel is about. Bonny Capps has put the “D” in darkness. I have read some seriously dark novels but this one comes quite closed to be “the” darkest I have ever read.

One of the first thoughts that came to mind was the resemblance with the era of The Tudors. Seriously, if you have have read the books or saw the TV show you know what I’m talking about. You do not want to r

Well I can honestly put my hand up and say I've never read a book quite like this one. Firstly I wasn't expecting the 3 POV's and the inclusion of the 3rd left me feeling - ooh ok and oh ok..... see I had mixed feelings about then where the story was going to go.

I have a few areas where I want to argue like mad about 'choices' or 'decisions' taken and bloody hell I have to say that Gabe must be the most darkest leads I think I've ever come across. I am very glad at the direction Bonnie took this

I received a copy of this book from The Write Connections in exchange for an honest review.

Readers, before you turn to the very first page, you should really heed the warning for this book. This is not your ordinary dark erotica. There is no glossed up version of a girl being kidnapped and then falling in love with her captor and then living happily ever after. Whether this book ends happily or not, you'll have to read to find out and then decide for yourself.

I think Gabriel is the darkest main

HOLY CRAP!! WTF did I just read?! I love dark, please don't get me wrong, but this was freaking out-in-the-country-no-streetlights kind of dark. There was no light. Can someone please turn on a damn light????!!!! A flashlight, a lighter even!

If you're looking for something dark, gritty, dirty, sexy, with lots of torture, killing and mayhem, then this is definitely the book for you.

Bonny Capps is freaking warped and I freaking love it!! Honestly, not many authors can pull of the depths of depravi

I absolutely loved reading this book. It was brutal and a complete roller coaster of emotions. At first I was worried that I was going to end up liking Gabe, because I found myself drawn to his character at the start. It didn't take long for that to change and although he was terrifying, I did find myself feeling slightly sorry for him. There were plenty of horror aspects to this book, lots of sexy scenes and some parts even made me teary. I definitely recommend.

This is certainly not a world we wish to be a part of until you are there. Bonny has captivated a one of a kind story in itself. She vividly brings every feeling, fear, anguish, torment and most of all love in the human spirit.

Gade is pure evil in every sense. He lives in a world that would be so surreal to plain folks. He is what Amelia would never in her young life never fathom being caught up. Can he trul

It was so intense that I couldn't stop and I read until 3 AM to finish it. Then up another half an hour sorting through my feelings that was stirred up.

“Scars remind us of what we’ve survived, Amelia. One day, we’ll look back, when we’re old. We’ll know that we survived. Together.”

Holy dark read!!! Wow, this book was beyond dark, but I loved it!! You feel horrible for Amelia from the minute you start reading. This book is not for the easily offended. I really did love this book and all its darkness.

Holy Darkness Batman!! This book reminds me of Break Her by B.G. Harlen and Captive in the Dark by C.J. Roberts, two of my favorite dark reads! If you’re a dark story lover, than this is DEFINITELY the book for you!! Heed the authors warning, this book is disturbing and graphic in places, lots of triggers for some, but oh so good for those that can handle it.

Deliverance for Amelia by Bonny Capps is an emotional and physical journey that will have you weeping and smiling all in the same paragraph. I love this story and how Amelia overcomes the malicious and deprivation in her life. This book is not for the faith of heart; it is graphic and can be hard to read at times. If you have any triggers do not read!
Amelia is a young woman just starting out on her own in life. She has just started college and is ready to live life from under her father’s thumb
