My Karma comes in the form of a woman and she has to be payback for all the shitty things I’ve done in my life. Not just any woman but one who is determine

Now that was action packed!   Esther Schmidt kept me on the edge of my seat from the first page.  I honestly didn't know what was going to happen next.  This series is definitely more intense and darker than her other series but it works with the environment the story takes place in.

Peacock (Godrik) was a dominant alpha male.  We learned in Ford that he was a Dom and participated in the BDSM lifestyle.   That wasn't a focus in t

Slight Spoilers Ahead, maybe for some, maybe not for others! You re Warned:

I FLOVED Peacock and "Karma", I mean LOVED. I was totally taken aback as to what Karma's background was and when we finally get it, I was stunned, intrigued, heartbroken BUT at that moment, I GOT what made her so damned cocky. BUT I was thrown for another loop, when another "twist" came into play after they got "close".

Peacock was just.....ahhhhh all alpha male, SO sexy and sure of himself and I was

Peacock doesn't know who he took on when he agreed to take Karma. Karma is a pistol Peacock is anxiously waiting to tame but once he thinks he has her pegged she surprises him. However, Karma has secrets and Peacock is put in a position on whether he can trust her or will she ultimately betray him?

I don't want to put too much of the details of the story out there because it will spoil it for readers. I will say I was surprised by this story, loved Peacock and Karma. Karma puts up a good fight wi

Peacock was first introduced in Ford and I couldn't wait for him to get his own book. Esther didn't disappoint this book was incredible. Karma was the perfect woman for Peacock. Karma has gone like through a lot in her life. No man has ever made her feel the way Peacock does. Same for him he's never felt a connection with another woman like he has with Karma. Karma is a badass. I loved the back and fourth banter between her and Peacock and the way she doesn't hold back. Peacock shows Karma a sid ...more

This book is AMAZING! I love Peacock and Karma's story.

Peacock took on Karma as a favor to her uncle.

Karma is a strong, feisty, kicka** chick with the I don't give a sh*t attitude who does the job her uncle tells her to.

I loved Karma, dont get me wrong, I loved Peacock also. But Karma was my favorite. I want to be her when I grow up, well minus all "Jobs" ;)

I can't wait for Marlon and Unique's story!

The story starts... Well, it grabs you by the balls with no ease on the grip. Lol. It was fun to see Peacocks reaction to the girl, he agreed to claim, in Fords book. And the first chapter starts with more fun. Why? Because... Well, he nicknamed her Karma. So, you can guess, Peacock has his hands full with his crazy girl. But there is more to Karma. When true about her life was revealed, I was close to tears. It did pained me, but also I was proud of how strong she was. I even love her dark and ...more

Review by Country Gals BOOK Blog

Karma is a real B.... but she's worth the trouble. Peacock (Godrick) takes Karma in to take her. She's moody, talks back, and crazy but she's a challenge meant for Peacock to tame. As secrets are revealed, Karma and Godrick have to learn to trust each other.

I wasn't sure what to expect having a girl Hitman but she's badass and I love her attitude. Karma can definitely hold her own against these big, bad men. Godrick is the p

Peacock is the "top dog". The leader of a well known and highly "influential" gang; he is always in charge...that goes for inside and outside of the bedroom too.

Karma is a "machine"..a mere cog in her Uncle's empire. Destroyed by a job gone wrong, she is done.

Feisty and not will to take shit from anyone Karma is sent away. When she lands on his door step as a"favor" both knowing the score; but neither expected to feel anything but what they atonement for their sins.

This is my first and will certainly not be my last read by this author. I couldn't get enough of this story.

Peacock was ready for a change in his life so when he was offered Karma by her uncle he couldn't and didn't want to refuse. From the first moment he met her she consumed him. Instead of reading up about her he went in blind which will come back on him later on.

I thought these two were super good together. Both are strong characters which I loved. They need to trust one another to move fo

Another amazing story by Esther, full of action and surprises.
Peacock has an ego to match his nickname, he is tough, rough and mean on the surface but underneath he still has a heart. He is a Dom through and through when it comes to sex, but if called for probably has more understanding of what a woman needs, even if that means vanilla to start with.
Yesfir has had a rotten upbringing, completely controlled from a very young age and programed to be a killer on command. No love has been shown to h

This couple may be one of my favorite that Esther has created yet. Both of them are people who don't take anyone's crap. The things that are revealed and everything that takes place as we read this book will have you completely engrossed in this book. If you have never read a book by Esther you will be perfectly fine reading this book but she does some really great work and you will want to read more.

Peacock is used to women who are subservient to him. He has another thing coming when it comes t

Esther E. Schmidt did an Amazing job on this book. I could not put this book down. This story kept me on the edge of my seat. There's many emotions in this story. Loved Peacock and Karma together. They are a perfect fit. Their chemistry is sizzling. Loved both Peacock and Karma. Peacock is everything, you would want in a man, he's strong, obsessive, protective, rough, loyal, sexy, and Karma is fierce, strong, and sassy. Karma and Peacock have gone through so much.

Peacock by Esther E. Schmidt was a wonderful read. This book was filled with lots of action that kept me glued to my kindle and didn't stop. I enjoyed reading Peacock. This book is different from the others that the author writes this is dark and twisted and so much fun. Great story and wonderful characters. Peacock is one hot alpha who is into the BDSM life style. He was a good character that you can fall in love for he gets his own book after Ford.

This book!! Talk about fast paced. Intense. And very sexy!! The sexual banter between Peacock and Karma is amazing. Their connection is fierce, that turns into love fill with loyalty.
There were times were I wanted to thrust punch Peacock but he made up for it in other ways.
You must read this book, Esther did an epic job with the twisted story.
Love this story, love Peacock & Karma. <3
Just wow the story pulled me in and I read it in one sitting.

Another fantastic by Esther. Peacock took Karma as a favor to her uncle. He saw this as a way to start another chapter of his life. He was ready for a change. He did something he never did before, go in blind. He didn’t want to see a pic of Karma or read her back ground. This is why he was caught off guard when he learned Karma’s real name. He was just about all in with her and now he has the one niggling little bit of doubt. Karma came to Peacock a broken girl. She was groomed to do one thing h ...more

I couldn't wait for peacocks story especially after the ending of fords book. And I have to say it was well worth the wait peacocks story starts off with some lol moments between him and Karma. The chemistry between these two was amazing. Karma's character is strong sassy and somewhat damaged. Peacock is all alpha male he's loyal strong and never backs down from a challenge. Now while I said this book had me laughing at certain things I found once the story progresses more there is a lot of twis ...more

Peacock and Karma are so freaking awesome and kickass.. I am in love with both..and don't get me started on Unique ;)
Peacock wanted Karma since he saw her first..but he doesn't know what to make of her and even better, he doesn't know who she is..he can only recognise something in her that resonates with him.
Karma can't stand that cocky man, yet he is not like every other man..There’s something about him that infuriates her yet at the same time he makes her feel safe.

Peacock is in for one hell of a ride with Karma. She is a firecracker who won't take anyone's shit. Honestly, Peacock has met his match with this woman.

But can Peacock trust her? She holds secrets that when revealed had me saying "no shit", "oh hell no", I seriously could not put this book down. It had my heart racing time after time. And without giving away anything in the plot there is not a whole lot that can be said.

All I know is another action packed, heart racing read from Esther. She kn

This book was a thrilling ride that I didn't want to get off of. From the first page until the last this book will intrigue you and have you guessing at what either one is holding back. Peacock is a man used to having whatever he wants and demands submission from any and all women he has been with. So glad that its just his luck to get the fiery firecracker known as Karma. Karma says how she feel and holds nothing back, she has been through

The whole story was amazing and although I won't divulge any of the story as it would be a complete spoiler what ever I said. Just know that it is a fanatic read and story.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. Now I loved the glimpses of Peacock we saw in Ford and was so glad to see he had his story told. These two absolutely suited each other and the twists and turns were just the icing on the cake. Danger, deception, a slightly retired assassin, heat factor through the roof, bad guys and a passion (heat factor reworded because it just had to be said twice) so hot I swear my whole hand and not just the finger

Want to go on a wild and crazy journey then Peacok is for you. Peacok is a Dom, and when ,"Karma" literally gets dumped on his door step he knows this will be his greatest sub to challenge in a heart beat. Karma is fearless, tough and when she is forced on Peacock, she doesn't know how to react. He is so different than any other man she has known. There are twist and turns and ugly truths that come to light and you won't be able to stop once you start. This crazy journey will leave you gasping a ...more
