Well,I've read all the M/M books in this series and this is definitely my favourite to date.
I would say READ THE WARNING in the blurb because this is definitely the most risky.

Grim is a nomadic biker attached to the Coffin Nails MC .He's a dark character,thinks nothing of killing people but the kill must be justified.
Now Grim has a certain kind of fetish and let's just say only a certain kind of man does it for him......
(I've certainly never read,or even heard,about this fetish befo

All the stars. All the stars for this book! Because it pushed my boundaries and messed with my head, but at the same time, it made me sympathize with characters I would never want to meet in real life. Because it made me root for a love story that is so out of the norm. But most of all, because it reminded me of all the reasons I'm such a devoted fan of K.A.Merikan.

Pay attention to the blurb. It does a great job summarizing the story, and I don't want to spoil the plot by rehashing it. And pay a

Well, if that wasn't one of the most creepy, unsettling reads I've had in awhile. I was more than a little apprehensive to read this, but let's be real -- it's KA Merikan; I'm gonna read it. These women made me love Dom and Seth, in Guns n' Boys, in spite of the blood, gore, and a certain flexible morality. I trust them to take me on a journey that I will ultimately enjoy, as uncomfortable as it may be. I'm not entirely o

This book was amazing! Sometimes it was scary AF, but I loved it!!!

Misha is a tormented young man who's been scarred beyond repair. He cannot trust anyone. His life seems destroyed for good, BUT Grim is changing everything for him. He gives him confidence and what he needed the most: REVENGE!
He is such a broken character. I ached so much for his horrible past and all the years he was abused! But Grim saved him in so many ways!!

Nope. This one was just not for me.

I can do with some fetishes in the world. I can think “No judgement, dude!”, and move on.

But this one got me REALLY disturbed. I just wanted to skip some scenes.

I have to admit, Kat and Agnes Merikan have f*cking twisted minds though. Holy sh*t. How can you even think of something like this? Amazing!
Argh, I typed a review that summed up everything i wanted to say and then the bloody tablet froze and I lost it. Grrrrrr!!

Amazing! I absolutely loooovvvvveeeedddd this one!! I think it was so much more than I was expecting! I started reading this knowing it would be dark and kinky, which it absolutely was, but it was done in a way I wasn't anticipating. It was also very sweet.

Wow! Still trying to put my mind back together after that ending!

Grim is an assassin. A really Hot assassin. He's also really quite creepy and a bit of a narcissist.

I think I might be a psychopath.

He longs to find someone to love that will love him back. Someone with (without?) certain attributes.

Misha has been through Hell! He's been aided in escaping after being locked up and used for years. Grim is his savior in a leather skeleton mask. But is he just like all the other dev

Before I continue with this review I want to make it clear that this book contains explicit scenes of rape, sex slavery, torture, murder, violence and sexual acts involving an amputee. If any of these are triggers for you or you may find the subject matter offensive, you should not read this book.

However, if the above only peaks your curiosity and you enjoy darker reads, you will be treated to a beautiful, if a little twisted, romance between two men with deep seated issues.

There are a few things I can be sure of when I pick up a K.A. Merikan book.

1. It's gonna be kinky.
2. Things might get a bit weird.
3. My morals get chucked out the door.
4. There will be some spectacular sex happening.
5. I'm gonna freakin' love it.

Every time.

Wow.....the kink...there was a lot in this stuff that I've not come across before and I've read a lot of kinky books. What I really love about K.A. Merikan is that they never ever hold back, some of the stuff is really cringeable at times and my eyes were popping out of my head but after a while you sort of become used to it, although to be honest I wouldn't have wanted anyone looking over my shoulder while I was reading this book.

It was great to catch up with Tooth and Lucky, they

4.5 stars for this gritty gem ! I really enjoyed this. It was dark, harsh and not for the squeamish 😮. I actually would’ve loved more of these two, they deserved some happy. There was a unique twist to this, I haven’t read any amputee fetish before and it would have never have interested me, but hey, KA always have a twist to their storylines and this was no exception. Loved it

Nice and twisted, with less of the obnoxiousness that was so prevalent in #7. There were things I liked about the last one, but it was almost too much at times. This one struck a different nerve, and the characters were endearingly weird.

This is definitely the most intense book of the series. I don't even know how to describe what I read. Bonnie and Clyde have nothing on Misha and Grim. Grim is probably the craziest and most consistent character I've ever read. His love for blood is no joke. Do not read this story if you have a weak stomach.

I read this one with a shield up. I always felt like I was watching a movie instead of being IN the story with the characters. It was heartbreakingly disturbing. But the tender moments were great too. Could I say I enjoyed reading this? No - I didn't enjoy it. But I appreciated the writing - I always do with Merikan. Dom and Seth remain my favorites.

Possibly the best one yet

This book is an adrenaline rush through some of the more horrific parts of life - the darkness which unfortunately exists to fuel sick and twisted desires.
Misha was kidnapped and forced into a life of horror when he was only 17 and has been in a living Hell for five years.

Grim is the Coffin Nails assassin, a Nomad who carries out the jobs the various chapters of the motorcycle club want doing when there's trash needs cleaning out. He's hard and powerful, dangerous, gay.

What did I just read ? Why did I read it ?

4 Stars because it's well written , and despite all it's dubious moral content , I desperately wanted to see Misha and Grim get their HEA .

Maybe , this was a weird gruesome palette cleanser from my normal fluffy reading !!

Speaking of which , immersing myself stat in cupcake , manny , baby dragon , shifter , negative angst books for the foreseeable future .

Jen's Review 4.5 STARS

As always with any Merikan novel heed the warnings. These author do not spare anything when it comes the worlds they create and the characters that live in them. It’s cruel, dark, violent and very intense.

Grim was a very perplexing character. My feelings towards him at first were very unsettled. He is hands down one of the creepiest characters I’ve come across in a long time. And because of that I questioned myself on why I liked him. I really shouldn’t be surprised, after

What an intense ride!

Prior to starting this book, I had quite a number of negative expectations. This stemmed from the way Grim was potrayed in the other books I had read in the series.I expected to read a horror-esque book through which I would have to struggle to connect with the MCs and feel sorry for the love interest of Grim for ending up with Him.

I think you can see from my rating that, that was far from the case.

Misha was a broken person, both internally and externally due to the extreme

Not only is this dark and very disturbing, it pushed me well over any set preconceived boundaries that I thought I had and I loved every single word!
This books screams spoilers and I would love to share them with you, but I'm going to try and resist. If the writers were going for the shock factor, they certainly succeeded. Read the warnings, they are there for a very good reason.
I’ve never read a MC like Grim before (and let’s face it, these two writers have had some of the best and OTT MCs eve

*** Shocking ! Sexual ! Amazing ! *** These two authors are amazing when they write a story of this depth. The fabulous characters leap off the pages, they bury themselves in your heart, and then take you for a rollercoaster ride. Whew ! I can't start another book, because I need to keep soaking the intensity, rethinking the scenes and breathe. Grim opens this tale with a flashback from his youth. It's crucial to this tale.
Big, badass, Grim, is tough, deep, full of mayhem and torture.

I'm not sure if this didn't bother me because I read this hours after I was done with the Hades Hangmen Series (that shit is crazy) or because I imagined Grim waaaay more creepier.

Grim was total care bear. Yes he is weird AF but It didn't bother me. I tried to see his weird tastes just like everybody's weird sexual kinks. He has issues but if you don't fuck with him he's not gonna fuck with you just for shits and giggles.
He can be ruthless and enjoy a bloodbath but he loved Misha unconditional

This latest installment is a perfect addition to this series. This book is a must read for all Merikan fans. These author do not spare anything when it comes the worlds they create and the characters that live in them. It’s cruel, dark, violent and very intense.

OMG Grim had my head spinning, Misha had my heart all over the place. As usual K.A. Merikan has taken me on one hell of a ride

“You perv on blood?” Misha raised his eyebrows.
“No. I just like how it smells and feels on me,” said Grim.
Misha stroked the bat. “So if I was bleeding, you’d be happy to see that?”
Grim shuddered visibly. “God, no. That’s a messed-up thing to say.”
“You’re the one to talk. You said you liked it.”
“Yeah, but if a person says they like meat, it doesn’t mean they will eat, say, a cat. I’d never drain a broken boy.”
“Misha frowned, not sure if he should slap Grim or ignore the comment. “

This was the most disturbing thing I think I have ever read, and I really enjoyed it. I don't know what that says about me (and I don't really care). These authors just have such a way with telling stories and creating new realities. They have really opened and broadened my tastes and understanding of new information. I might go into some of their stories with slight trepidation, but I end up leaving with a new found understanding and an urge to research and learn more instead of judgin

Wow-that ending was intense. I absolutely loved how obsessed Grim was with Misha. Grim's kink was really out there but I have heard about this before and it was fascinating to understand Grim's thought process. I can only imagine the research the Merikans did for this book. Misha was understandably wary of Grim so I loved it when he was finally able to trust him.
