Her scars ran so deep, her soul had been severed in two. Michelene had killed and run—but not far enough, or fast enough.

They’d found her.

Azriel had but one rule. No attachments. This rule had kept him alive. He’d lived by it—until her.

She’d found her savior in a man whose past was even darker than her own and whose soul held shadows of that dark. He made her body explode

"Don't google porn"...and other tidbits I've learned and re-learned today...

1) Revenge Books are the Shizzle.


Sadistic blood thirst, how do I love thee?

Many ways.

2) Sometimes you just need a book with not much story and lots 'o' possessive, angry smut.

3) Never...

Ever...

EVER...

...Google the words "interracial sex" and "bdsm gifs" unless you are NOT at work, NOT surrounded by children and WANT an eye full of straight porn.

WoW!!! This book blew my mind! In a way it reminded me of Ruthless People by J.J. McAvoy. But in this one you get even more insanity. This book is definitely one of my new favourites! If you've read Ruthless People, then you know that this story might not be for everyone, like people who don't like violence and abuse. But seriously, I just couldn't get enough of Azriel and Michelene. They are both out of their ever loving minds and I freaking loved it! Hell yes!

This story had multiple POVs but

This was an interesting read. Fairly short, but a lot going on. It picked up with Azriel obsessing over Michelene, whom he did not know and had never met. This is completely out of character for him. Their lives are actually intertwined, which you get as part of the suspense plot.

I liked Azriel - A LOT. Yes, he is a psychopath and a killer. But we can't all be perfect! I loved how he chastised himself over being pussy-whipped, among other things. His inner monologues about his feelings were hil

Wow. So…I’ll freely admit that the thought of this book didn’t send shivers of excitement down my spine. I was extremely skeptical about it and that I would enjoy it. But Nikki insisted (and used it for her PIFY pick this month) so…I read it. I can report that it was good. I mean, read it in one sitting good. But even as I say that, it was missing that certain je ne sais quoi that I found in Nero, so while this was good…it was no Nero.

And honestly, I don’t know what was missing for me.

Hmmm.

There’s a big chasm between the land of the bad boy and the land of the creepy psychotic serial killer maniac.

One land has sexy, misunderstood boys that are a balance between aggressive/alpha and sweet/cuddly bear. It’s a fragile balance that can only be maintained by the true heroine, in which once found leads to the land of Happily Ever After.

The other land has dark, sinister boys that enjoy the crimson beads of blood that glides down a victim's lifeless skin. These boys can be sexy, but

3.0 RATING- Vengeance had the rough framework for what could have been a pretty good read, if you like crazy, obsessive, stalker hero's. Unfortunately, it just wasn't fleshed out enough to rate higher for me, even as a complete guilty pleasure. The story wasn't developed as much as it could have been and I think that's more due to the writing then the shorter, novella length (99 pages). There were some editing issues as well.

Still, for readers short on time and willing to accept just an okay OTT

Loved this book!

This book is so not what I was expecting, but exactly what I wanted. I've been in a weird book mood lately. I want to read about Über possessive, borderline psycho, maybe a little stalkerish heroes that love their ladies. Extra hard. It's a lot harder to find a book that meets those qualities and doesn't come with the BDSM or extra dark erotic tag as well. So I saw some reviews of Vengeance and that its on Kindle Unlimited so I thought I'd give it a try. Perfection! It had everything I was looki ...more

Mildly dark book, with an alpha hitman for a hero, and a heroine with a dark past that she is running from. This was a fast read with no cliffhanger and all loose ends are tied up without complication. I enjoyed reading it. It was a good book to pass the time with.
Natalie The Biblioholic
This was not what I was expecting from a 100 page book. I got so much more bang for my buck with this story. Although a lot happened in such a short time, I in no way felt rushed.

Azriel is a hired killer. And a sociopath. Maybe even a psychopath? But what was normal for him drastically changed when he found Michelene. He becomes obsessed with her. He stalks her when she already has a stalker. Good thing he's stalking her to protect her from the real psycho lol. They officially meet, fall in love

Michelene and Azriel story.

I absolutely loved the couple and the story. A quick engrossing read.

Another hit from this author as far as I am concerned.

I gave this book a 2 star rating because it was intriguing enough to finish but I was close to dnfing several times. First off there were way too many spelling errors, spell check should not be the only resource used for editing! Secondly, there was not enough background information, character and relationship building, I felt like the important things were glossed over that created a bad disconnect. I could not come to care for Michelene even though her childhood was horrific because of it. Ven ...more

Azriel was truly amazing in this story. To know the type of person you are and not apology for it completely sexy. There was so msny parts in this story were I had to laugh and shake my head at him. That kind of obsession can be scary but it also can make you feel like no one will ever hurt you because he will not allow it. I must see what else Shara has written.

Very good story from beginning to end! Love the characters and it seemed that Azriel and Michelene were made for each other. Love the backstory of her family. Would recommend. It is a nice read.

Its so rare to find everything i want in a hero to find in one book and i did with this one! i love my heroes to be crazy obsessed. I want them to stalk the heroine but only want her and only her. I want them to be dark and scary but to also treat the heroine like she is a queen. And i found everything in this book! i honestly cannot tell you how much i love this!

The reason for 4 stars is because i paid $6.00 AU for this book and its quite short and it doesnt even have an epilogue. I found that

Ill be nice and say this was 3.5 stars for me!! Book rant coming on!!!

Now my 3.5 star review is being generous because really the fact that the author basically didn't do what I fee like is her job as an author and she just left me feeling pissed really because this book had the power to suck me in but I was only really able to get in maybe waist deep when really what I wanted to do was drown and fight to come up for air!

Another Dark Erotica Gem From Ms. Azod



What makes a good writer? Someone who can weave a compelling tale. Who can make you picture a character, scene or emotion with the power of prose. The IR genre has few writer who can accomplish this and Shara is one one of the few. I should not like Azriel. He's a vicious psychopath who enjoys killing and is the type of boogie man you would not even want to meet in the light of day, yet his viciousness is written so Aloha male dark and forbiddingly sexy he w

3 Stars - This book had potential but it was too short so the characters seemed flat. I wanted to know more about them before they met because there were quite a few interesting secondary characters. Azreil was right on the line from being alpha to being too alpha. Some readers may like that but me, not so muchh. Azriel Seth is a cold unfeeling killer for hire and is his own boss. While following a target, he comes across Michelene and immediately is consumed with watching her and following her ...more

OMG!!! WOW!!! EXPLOSIVE!!! What did I just read? Totally effing AWESOME!! Not sure or why the low ratings but this book was intense and grabbed you from the word go! There was nothing wrong with this story. The blurb should have let you know that this beautiful, wonderful, focused intense, assassin was not playing around! Azriel found his destined mate Michelene and was not dicking around! He stalked her (in a good way people, but is there a good way to stalk? Lol). Anyway he laid claim to her i ...more

Wow what a ride!!

This was a thrilling read with protagonists, Azriel and Michelene, whose chemistry was off the charts and, although both were definitely unconventional either by birth, career choice or lifestyle, there was something about them, perhaps that instant bond and attraction, which made them infinitely likeable and somehow vulnerable characters.
For Azriel his vulnerability is shown in his lack of understanding of his feelings
and his feeble attempt to deny those emotions. However if

Enjoyed the hell out of this one. It really hit the spot and had all the things I love in a book. The H is a killer for hire. He is a cold psychopath who cares about nothing and no one. That is until he sees the h while following his latest mark. He is immediately taken with her and stalks her. He can't help but want her and assigns himself her protector. This H was so wonderfully caveman. I'm talking super possessive, protective, and mega obsessed. I hope Ms. Azod writes a story about the h's b ...more

Azriel was going to take her, and he was going to keep her. This line had me like hell yes!! I really liked the story, but some of my excitement dimmed when it got to Michelene's past. It was messed up. Then we got a glimpse of Azriel, the killer. Some parts were a bit graphic. These things didn't make me dislike the book, just didn't captivate me like Azriel's early behavior.

Oh my gosh!

Sharma Azod has always been one of my favorites. This was awesome. I LOVED Azriel. I want him for myself! Lol Seriously, I love Shara Azod's books because the female characters are never perfect. There are so many books were the female has the perfect job, perfect body, perfect family, perfect everything and it gets tiring to read. This is why she will always be one of my favorites.

Perfect Alpha male & Heroine

I loved this story. A true alpha who apologizes for nothing and a heroine that does not try to change who he is. She just rolls with it. No hissy fits, no running away, none of the normal stupid crap that most heroines display in this genre today. The storyline was fantastic and not muddle with a slew of outside characters. Truly a worthy read and sexy as hell!
