She's mine.
Ever since I first laid eyes on her, I knew there was something about her but I had to be sure.
I had to know she was like me.
Now, after what I've put her through, I own her.
But they keep trying to pull her away from me.
They keep trying to destroy my world forcing me to unleash hell on earth to keep her in my arms.

descriptionThis is a pretty good cover. A good representation of the story within. Good composition. Interesting typography. I probably would have moved the author's name to below the title and tagline and moved everything up a bit. Overall though this one works.description

description this book was fifty shades of FUCKED UP! I don't even know where to begin with this review. I don't want to give too much away, so I am going to be pretty vague in my comments.


First up I want to say that I LOVED every minute of this one.

When I first picked up this book, it was because of the cover. If you follow my reviews you know I love Their Vampire Queen, and the cover from the second book in that series, is almost the same as this one. The authors did explain that its a stock photo, which they've adapted individually to both of their series. I did not mistake this book for the other, I just thought the cover looks awesome and then committed the sin of all sins in the reading world: I judged the book by said cover. However, ...more

Where do I start with this book?
Mine Forever (Deadly women #1) was my first sampling
of Kate Bonham's work and OMG, this is so not going to be my last.
I am now definitely a fan of this wonderfully unique authors work.
Can I just say Kates work is very graphic and may be found somewhat shocking to some, this is a romance but of a very dark perverse variety and if you are easily shocked or offended and like a more conventual approach well you have been warned.

Have you ever loved someone so much you would kill for them?

Have you ever loved someone so much you would flip the world upside down for them?

Have you ever loved someone so much you would kill your own family for them?

Ebony would do all of the above. Jett would do all of the above.

This isnt a pretty love story.

This love isn’t roses and chocolates.

This love isnt walks in the park holding hands.

This is the first book I have read from this author, and it certainly won’t be the last.

Ebony Caine is an extended member of a crime family. She has a past that includes a rough childhood, and a stint in juvie. Because of this, she is virtually unemployable, unlike her ‘model’ sisters. But her uncle, Giordano (Giordy) offers her a waitressing job in his restaurant.

On her second day, she is the solitary waitress who remains to serve at an important ‘meeting’.
Jett Black is a self-made kingpin of c

Star Rating - ****

Mine, Forever was my first read by Kate Bonham and it was definitely the type of story I enjoy. With the perfect balance of violence and romance, I fled through the latter part of the book, anticipating the finale. I don't feel the book had an eventful ending, but was instead wrapped up nicely with a HEA. No matter how much violence is involved, I'm always after that romantic ending. So if you're into those sorts of story lines, this book is definitely one for you!

I have read a few books before by this author and have always enjoyed her style of writing but this book is something so very different from any of her other stories that it came as quite a surprise at how brilliantly good her writing talent is.
This book is so totally messed up in the way that it's so very wrong but so absolutely right. It made me question myself and think about how far would you let someone go with hurting and controlling you and still be able to love them because you are so en

Good God almighty!! What a fantastic book! When I began reading this book I rolled my eyes and thought, nope not going to happen for me, but then it grabbed me by the shirt front and pulled me in and I could not stop until I read the last line! Not that the beginning was bad, because it wasn't, but I just didn't think it was my type of read....WRONG! These characters...these completely broken characters were so completely well defined that you would swear that you have read about them in the new ...more

(4 stars)

This seems to be the first of the Deadly Women series, the series title should be self-explanatory as to what its about. I do believe in soul mates, and this book shows that even merciless killers have them.

Jett knew when he set his eyes on Ebony that she was different, he just didn't know until he saw her spark, that was when he knew with his "help" she would be his queen. His methods of breaking her but not breaking that spirit inside, just giving her a... sort of

Jett had me both hating and loving him and intrigued by him and loving him and hating him the whole way through! He is written as dark brooding,intelligent, broken, violent, and handsome and yes he was all of that and more!!

When you have to become the worst version of yourself to overcome the pure evil of others.

Jett Black – Self named by the blackness of his soul, and proud of it. Shooting someone is just business, even those around him should they even begin to question his directives. He is the hero of Mine, Forever and I wonder how I can even begin to relate to him. He ordered his father killed, and is now attending the funeral of the gang-boss who mentored him better than his twisted and abusive father ever co

This is my first book by Kate Bonham and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I'm a big fan of mob and dark reads, so I was anxious to read it. And now after reading it, I’m not sure how to review it.

So we meet Ebony who had a very rough life and is trying to start over, but her only option is to work for her uncle who is part of the mob. A couple of days in, Jett Black comes to discuss business with her uncle and takes her hostage. Jett is feared by most of the city and he is very rough around the edg

Mine, Forever is the first book that I have ever read from Kate Bonham, so I had no idea what to expect. I was given the opportunity to read this as a part of Quirky Blind Date with a Book, and this book is the reason that I love QBDWAB so much! I never would have experienced this author or book had it not been for Quirky. While this isn't what I typically read, the story was really interesting to me and I am glad I took the chance on this au

WOW!! OH MY GOODNESS!! Where to start with this book I mean wow!! This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I will definitely be reading more. Ok let me start off by saying that this is very graphic and dark at times. So if you aren’t a fan or have triggers you don’t want to read this.

Jett Black is a sociopath that runs the city or part of it. He is ruthless and definitely doesn’t show emotions until he sees her, Ebony Cain. He finds pleasure in hurting/torturing people. And boy some

Well what do you get when you cross one sexy deranged man with a beautiful slightly broken woman ? Fireworks people sweltering in your face burning hot fireworks. This book was nothing like I'd ever read before . It was dark twisted violent and I couldn't stop reading it. What does that say about me ? Lol Kate Bonham is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors she writes with an appeal that brings new reader's into her web of intrigue , twisted ideas dark thoughts and a lust for pshycot

Mine, Forever was a very interesting read. It went a little different than I originally thought it was going to go, but I was very entertained and enjoyed the book quite a bit. Ebony was the biggest surprise. She developed the most in the book, going from the emotionally and physically abused to the strongest character. Jett's plan with Ebony definitely backfired and he got more than he bargained for. A Queen for his kingdom, indeed. Jett shocked me a few times. Just when you though he was going ...more

This is a VERY dark book. We follow the point of view of Ebony, a girl born in a mob family that wishes to get away or at least to be left alone, only to be caught by the new city mobster boss Jett. He is our second main character and he is totally f***ed up (pardon my language). She is tortured only to discover that they actually are in love with each other. The relation and all the action is really fast so you will have no time to breath or think you can possibly get bored.

All I can say is wow!!! Mine Forever was certainly not what I was expecting. It is a love story but one that is very dark and very twisted. Jett is a cold hearted ruthless killer who is feared by most. Ebony is the niece of Jett's rival Giordy and has had more than her share of trouble with the law. Together they are a formidable match. The storyline while dark and complicated is jammed packed with action, is relatively easy to read even though the content contains graphic killings, cruelty, tor ...more

I'm not really sure what to think about this book. I enjoyed it. It's not something I would normally read and a few parts were super strange, but all in all a good read.
Jett Black is running an empire and is feared by many. No feelings, no emotions. In walks Ebony. She could be his Queen. There's a strangely sweet romance between them. I'm definitely interested in knowing what goes on with a few of the characters.
