It was a permanent note-to-self tattooed right above Kameo Kross's panties, because anything less was a disappointment. Had anyone cared to issue the warning: Be careful what you wish for, she might have thought twice before wording it like an actual invitation.

Philosophers are greedy for more knowledge, missionaries are greedy for more sheep to add to their flock, so despite all of the 'virtuous' things they do, greed is still a major motive behind their actions. The world is run by avarice. It's the foundation beneath every aspect of our existence.



Kameo “Kami” Kross lives for Halloween—it’s the time of the year she really allows herself to feel free and without reservation. When she catches the eye of a “bull man” with an intricate mask she oozes

I'm honestly torn. On one hand I would love to give this 5 stars. The other just 4. It reads like it should be a full length and not a novella. It's more like a serial than anything else.

It ends on a cliff hanger but it does to rope you in to buying the next installment. This kind of makes me sad. I want to know what happens with Kress and Kami. But I'm not sure i want to buy the next dang parts. So for now I'm not going to rate it. Just know it's not a bad rating.

Be advised there is blood pla

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

OMG!!!!! This is my first book by this author and WOW... I just loved this book!!!! There was so much going on with the characters and this awesome chemistry between Kami and M.W. Kress (aka her boss).

I must note that this was labelled as a 'dark erotica' I have to say it didn't fit into that category in my mind. There were definitely some interesting scenes but it wasn't dark in the way I thought it was goi

Avarice by A.C. Melody

'Avarice' by A.C. Melody was advertised as being dark erotica and ‘not for the faint of heart.' Since I’m a fan of this genre and not one to cringe fast, I was looking forward to reading this book. I could only hope my expectations would be fulfilled.

The book deals with Kameo (Kami) Kross. She’s had a tough life and is still struggling to make ends meet and to find a decent place in life. She also literally tries to find a decent place to live, since

I was drawn into Avarice from the start. Kameo Kross is an incomplete puzzle. From the tragic circumstances surrounding her birth, to her obsession with Halloween, to her tattoo that throws down the gauntlet and issues a provocative challenge. We have several pieces of the puzzle – but none of them fit together. Kami’s submissive nature leads her on a still unfulfilled search for the ultimate…? Even she can’t put a name on what she’s looking for, but knows she’ll know when she finds it. But WHY ...more

I had the pleasure to beta read this first part of a trilogy, and once I got to the end, I offered to beta read the rest as well. I just had to know what happens next!

Kameo "Kami" Kross ranks among my favorite female characters in fiction. She's intelligent, sassy, ambitious - and a pain junkie. She can't stand vanilla men and instead wants proper torture, but only when it fits her schedule.

"What level of pain were you looking for, princess?"

Of course, her immediate desire had been a/>Of/>"What

HOLY COW what a book. I picked this up thinking it was going to be a good Dark Read. Which it was but it was so much more. The plot is intertwined with a mysterious paranormal aspect that will keep the reader on their toes. I don't do spoilers so I won't get heavily into the plot but trust me when I say the author has a wonderfully twisted why with a pen (and I mean that in a very good way).

The story follows Kameo's life. She was born to a druggie that died giving her birth but befor

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have been debating on what my rating for this book would be and I would give it a 3 1/2 star review so I rounded up to 4. This is the very first of A.C. Melody's books that I have ever read and I have to say, I will be coming back for more. A.C. Melody did what not many people can do, they didn't fall into the curse of the novella. This book is 114 pages on my nook. Generally, when I read a book that is less than 200 pages I do not feel co

Received a *Complimentary Copy* from the author for a honest review. *So glad that I did!!!*

OH MY GOD!!!! I'm still reeling! Wonder if there's even a term such as 'Reader Sub Space?' I'm going to have to 'beg' the author for the next installment …Yes, this book was THAT good!

ALL my senses are on overload! The story-line was creative, well-versed and simply diabolical! *I mean that as a high praise*

I have never revealed spoilers and the temptation to do so for

'Avarice' by A.C. Melody is advertised as being dark erotica and so I couldn’t wait to read it.

The heroine is Kameo (Kami) Kross. We learn that the day she was born it was in some very tragic circumstances and as a result she has a dark cloud haunting her very existence. Which is a bit of foreshadowing although it takes reading book 2 to get the rest of the puzzle pieces. The first scence is about her and her roommate going out on Halloween. She is in to some kinky stuff, just not a

Hello, I'm A.C. Melody, a hybrid author both traditionally and self-published thriving in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I come from a family of musicians and artists, and love ancient civilizations, mythology and culture.

Erotica and all its savory sub-genres is my absolute favorite to read and write. I have a weakness for Hard Ass Alphas with bad attitudes and it’s icing if they’re supernatura
