I remember the days when it was me and the ice. The jarring sounds that my skates would make when they’d slice through my frozen stage.
Remembering my mother’s smiling face as she watched me perform. She was so proud. She was the best.
Then she was taken suddenly. I never even got to say goodbye.
It was her wish that I go to Russia to discover my roots, and I did.

People; brace yourself for some really brutal, dark and shocking stuff here.

It was a tale so dark that I, a reader who is used to reading mindfuck and disturbing stuff, ended up cringing a lot of times.
Somehow, it’s a relief that I felt shaken like this.

because some of the books I have been reading recently stated as dark didn't touch me one bit.
And it makes me worried.
Is it me?
Am I become insensitive due to all the dark content I have been reading in the last few years?

I absolutely LOVED Snuff by Bonny Capps. This story had it all: romance, thrill, darkness, and gore. It was a total win in my book. I devoured each page and cringed at some points. Absolute perfection! Can't wait to see what else Bonny has in store for us readers!

"She doesn't want to understand what makes me tick. Because she is perfect, and I'm flawed. She sees me as a monster, and I see her as an angel. How are we ever to see eye to eye?"

Highly recommend this one to all dark romance lovers ou

If an author can create a monster of all monsters and write so eloquently that the reader feels empathy towards said monster, then the author is no longer just an author or writer. He or she is now a gifted artist. Bonny has owned this gift long before Snuff, but dagnabbit, she took that gift and blew it to smithereens with Snuff!

Sofia and her mom lived in their own world. Mom as a doctor and Sophia as an up and coming ice skating champion. Both lived in a world of love and safety until tragedy

Hello, little mouse...

I just finished and am still speechless.. only Bonny can write a book so dark and disturbing, and yet have you begging for more.

Bonny continues to perfect her craft, creating realistic scenes and relatable characters. She brings the dark, taboo world to life through her pages, leaving the reader wondering, wtf did I just read, and when will the next one be published?!

If you have ever read a book by Bonny then you know she has a way of sucking her readers into the book and leaving them breathless . I was very lucky and honored to be able to beta read Snuff for Bonny .
From the start I was hanging on every word picturing it happening in my head . Maybe sometimes I'd close my eyes for a second to get through that one part but I couldn't stop . My heart and mind is so torn about how I feel for Dimitri . Do I love him and want him with Sofia or do I want him to r

I was so happy when Bonny allowed me to Beta Read Snuff. From reading her previous books and getting little sneak peeks of this one, she had me watering at the mouth and I was not disappointed once the full book got to my hands.

Snuff lacks nothing when it comes to the wow factor. Some scenes leave nothing to the imagination and you want to stop and look away but can't because you just know you will miss something important. This book is not for the weak of heart and pushes lines but that is wha
Just Wow! This is a crazy good dark read. It starts right off with what you think is going to be a night of fun and celebration only in an instant to turn into a horrific nightmare. It does end with a pretty big cliff hanger. I can't wait to pick up the next one!

Bonny does it yet again! This book will blow your mind. From the very beginning I was drawn in. Then along comes Dimitri, why oh why do I love him so? He is wrong, demented in the head... plum evil!!! But for some strange reason I can't let him go. No I should feel this way for Vadim. Dimitri puts Sophia completely through hell. I don't know how she does it, how she is still surving. Then add Eva... who is Eva you ask? Well you will have to read this amazing book to find out... no spoilers from ...more

First half of the book - 2 Stars

2nd half - 3 Stars

I was under the impression (possibly from the blurb intro: "WARNING: This book is not just dark - it’s horrific, depraved and disturbing") that this was a DARK book. And ok, I mean there's a few snuff scenes but to me it seemed like they were added only to show the extent of Dimitri's cruel nature and give us something to fear. The title, cover and blurb seem to be carefully manufactured to grab people's attention rather than provide an actual in

This is the first book I have read by Bonny Capps. I ran across a teaser on a Facebook page. I read it and instantly thought that it was a perfect read for myself and my Book BFF! We are both into reading really dark, mind blowing stories. So I told her about it and she started reading it first. I received messages like "I'm nervous about Snuff, never had a warning like that!" "It's horrifyingly dirty and nasty." And my favourite "I wish you were reading this with me, I need you to hold my hand, ...more
---- mild and not so mild spoilers ensue ----

I'm very surprised about the ratings and reviews this childish, rather Mary Sue-ish and melodramatic story received. It is neither horrific, nor horrifying, not erotic, not well-written, and offers neither an insight into its characters, nor into snuff filming, nor into Russia or Russian mafia.

This is instead very pedestrian, rather boring and silly, without a spare emotion or a brain cell shaken lose between its characters. Hilariously frumpy and do

SNUFF is the story of a young woman named Sofia. In the beginning, Sofia is an innocent girl on her way to becoming a professional ice skater. Since this is dark erotica and not a fairytale, of course Sofia's life changes early on in the book, forever leaving the innocent ice skater behind. Bonny Capps takes Sofia and her story in an entirely different direction, physically moving Sofia across the globe while simultaneously taking Sofia (and us readers) to dark, disturbing places.

Wow! I didn't think Bonny could do better than her last series. This one is grueling amazing!!
Snuff became another of my favorite stories. It is not sappy romantic but deadly romantic.
Sofia lived in her own ice skating world and competitions with her mother, having lost her father at a young age. She lived to be on the ice. What could be better for an amazing athlete, right?
Her world ends with the death of her mother and moves to Russia. She could continue her skating there too. So is not the ca

True to Bonny Capps style, this book is SHOCKING and DISTURBING!! I have followed Bonny through her journey and this book is even more HORRIFIC, if that can even be possible. I love that Ms. Capps continues to stay true to her style and perfects each and everyone of her accomplishments.

The feeling of SADISTIC dark evil comes alive as the tale unfolds and is unsettling and brilliant in it's execution, CAPTIVATING dark readers up to the last chapter. The characters are SADISTIC and INSANE, and the

Read this for a 2nd time to read the next book. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first time but that just might be that my reading enjoyment has changed. Off to the next one.


I loved this book! I couldn't put it down. Not even for my afternoon nap.

Triggers: There are so many triggers in this one, it’s horror erotica. I am throwing out there as a warning. There are many disturbing acts in this book please be aware of it.

Dark, Nasty and Awesome.

Not to sound cliché, but Bonny Capps has penned a grotesque masterpiece of Dark Matter in Snuff.

The story throws the innocent main character into a maelstrom of nastiness way beyond her control. She must adapt to the corruption or be swallowed up by it.

The author does an excellent job of bringing the horrors of the protagonist’s reality right into the living room, and make us not only feel, but smell, and taste and hear the gritty, black world which threatens to consume

I was granted a sneak peek of SNUFF as a Beta reader. Once again, Bonny has left me speechless!!

From the moment you grab this book, it will grab you right back. What a tangled web this author weaves, one I was more than happy to be caught in. I'd try to set it down so I could take my time and enjoy every delicious word, only to find myself lost in the incredible story line once again.

Upon introduction of each character, you'll want to know more about them. Each one so complex and unique. As you

Snuff by Bonny Capps

####4.5 Hashtags####

Snuff is a superbly written twisted tale of kidnapping, torture, and depravity. Bonny Capps brilliantly twists a tale of a girl who has lost her entire family, travels to Russia to learn about her culture, and is thrust into the darkly dangerous world of Dimitri.
The skill with which Capps manage to paint the dark, deary world of Snuff is unsurpassed, grabbing the reader by the throat and submerging them in the cold reality that Sofia suffers. It's unima

Have you ever read something so perverse, so depraved, twisted to its core, you feel surrounded by darkness? You abhor the actions taking place, but can't seem to stop yourself from traveling deeper into the rabbit hole. Right and wrong cease to matter. Good and evil are irrelevant. Only the journey exists, the ride to the finish.
If the answer is no, than you, my friend, have never read Bonny Capps.

This book is very gory.. But I've read darker. Looking at cover, I thought I was going to get some shocking in your face gore! This might make me sound disturbed but I thought it would have dealt with more of the killings on film. There was a total of "3!" Just saying. Definitely a page turner... We have it all; incest, kidnapping, rape, torture, and live killings on film.. Which remind me of the Saw films.... The ending was crazy.. I'm so glad 2nd book is

This book is something else. It was interesting to get into the minds of Dimitri, Vadim and Sofia. It was really unpredictable to say what would happen in Dimitri's life. Like Sofia, I was scared of what would tick him or piss him off. When I read his story, God, I know he is sick but then you can help but to really understand him. The author has written in a way that you can understand and connect to their actions. I loved Sofia and her strength. I loved her passion for her skating, it kept her ...more
