This book sucked me in and kept me reading straight through to the end. Shaped by her early experiences, Alace is a strong, powerful yet vulnerable woman who’s found her place in the world, one far removed from the norm. A vigilante who wants to serve justice on those who get away with heinous crimes, planning her retribution carefully. It’s all there in this book, horror, suspense, love and intensely hot, steamy scenes.
This is a definite 5 star read which I thoroughly recommend. Beautifully wr

This beautiful twisted and consuming masterpiece will chew you up and spit you out!

Oh MariaLisa Demora, oh how you have done it again! You are a pure genius when it comes to writing. Reading a book that gives you that want to live in that world feeling is the holy grail for a reader. I've only read a few of MariaLisa's books and she has blown me away each time.

Alace Sweet's has everything a reader would want. Drama! Lots of it. Surprise twist! and Betrayal! (OMG GASP) What's not t

Alace Sweets by MariaLisa deMora
Alace Sweets is a different type of story from her MC series. The story is so much more than that of a girl growing up making a living of finding justice for those who didn’t get it through the justice system. Many of Alace’s experiences are detailed encounters that you ride along as she plans and “executes” those plans. As I read this book, I thought back to when I first watched Jamie Lee Curtis in the original Halloween movie. I was shaking and cold to the bone.

This is my first book by this author and will not be my last.
This book was very well written and the pace was just right and flowed beautifully.
The story had me on the edge of my seat wondering where it would go and end I could not see how it would all play out a few twists...
Alace, I really enjoyed her character she is powerful yet vulnerable at the same time, giving what happened to her in past we can understand why... you can connect with her and understand why she does what she

This is my favourite book so far from this author. Although I loved her MC books I really loved this one.

I know I say quite a bit that the books I’ve read are gripping (not my fault there are so many awesome authors) but seriously I had to read this on my kindle app on my phone so I could read it whenever I could.

Alace is a kick ass character. She wants justice for those that didn’t get it and will do whatever she can to achieve it.

I recommend this book if you enjoy dark romantic thrillers. J

There's not enough stars to give this book and 5 just doesn't really do it justice! I was allowed the privilege of reading it early and my honest review is this....... I honestly can't think of enough good things to say about it!
From an author who generally writes reads that are full of sexy biker-hotness, there is not a single biker in 'Alace Sweets'! This is a a whole new level of writing from the dark side for MariaLisa deMora, but damned if it doesn't get a hook in your soul that you can't g

"I'm not a monster slayer. I'm not a nice person."

Being a fan of MariaLisa's work, I've learned to expect the unexpected. But an expectation that she always lives up to is writing a good story, regardless of what subject matter she decides to tackle. She does not shy away from damaged characters or dark situations. I admit to being very intrigued when I read the synopsis for Alace Sweets.

Don't judge me for bonding with a vigilante serial killer, she's more than what she does. Being inside her

Guys what a brilliant read. This is a first for me by this author, so all I had was the synopsis. And it was certain words within the synopsis like revenge, dark, not a light read and intense that drew me in. Dark and twisted being my fav to read I couldn’t pass the opportunity up. I needed to read this. So I purchased and read…..

Wow! is the first word that popped into my head when I finished reading this book. Alace's character is easy to connect to and understand how and why she did the things she did. How a good person can be pushed so far past their breaking point that they can do bad things and still have a good heart. There is a fine line between vengeance and justice and can easily become blurred under the right circumstances. The author gives you just enough detail to let your mind picture the horrid things that ...more

Alace Sweets isn’t for the faint of heart make sure you check out that warning in the blurb. Having said that I loved reading Alace’s story. It’s heartbreaking, brutal but sweet and loving all rolled into one tiny body. I’m not going into much storyline detail or really character details because you really need to read it to understand it all. No strings left untied and everything ended in a neat bow. It flows together nicely and you don’t just know Alace you un

Then there is Eric the one person who won’t give up on Alace and knows she deserves love and so much more. A very intense story with lots of twist and turns and shocking details.

Alace Sweets is a strong, intelligent! With a traumatic experience at the tender age of seventeen, Alace seeks a life trying to right wrongs. That is until she meets her 'one', Eric, things don't exactly go smoothly for them both.

This was the last book I read of 2017 and it was a fab way to end the year.
There are plenty of emotions in this read to keep you turning those pages right until the very end as well as plenty of swings and roundabouts to keep you guessing and ensuring that the story carries on flowing.
I really enjoyed the vigilante vibe to this book and although there are plenty of scenes that may well turn your stomach, it kind of doesn't feel wrong that you are enjoying them at the same time.

So when I first started this book, it felt a bit confusing, but then I stopped and started again, and man did I get sucked in. (Was mad to actually go and spend time doing normal stuff, lol)
Alace is awesome. Strong, powerful and amazing. After everything she went through and then going out and doing what she does, takes courage. And I think she was a superhero. But she also had a vulnerable side to her.

What is your view of vigilantes? If someone was wronged so terribly, that they made a vow to rid the world of people like those monsters that hurt them, would you understand? Would you feel differently if they were your daughter, your mother, your spouse or your lover?

When those monsters didn’t pay for their crimes she started a new life. Alace wasn’t always a vigilante killer, even though she hated that word.

This certainly is a change from this author however it is well thought out and written to her high standard.

Alace grew up with no illusions as to her status in life, with a promiscuous mother and no father she basically brought herself up. So at seventeen, being a victim of extreme trauma, she had nobody to turn to in her time of need. Not even the law helped her. Alace decides to set things right herself!

When they are not made to pay for the actions they did she takes it upon herself to make sure they pay. Get ready to be on the edge of your seat for this entire book. There is danger and suspe

Omg this book is AMAZING. From the very first sentence until the very end the book keeps you engaged.
Alace is one of the most relatable characters I’ve ever read (homocidal vigilanteism aside) in the sense that I GET HER I get her motivations, her feelings I get HER. Things were going well for Alace until she meets the son of her latest mark and her whole world is thrown into disarray.
So I guess this book would be classed as a romantic thriller. Now I’ve read s lot of books and it’s hard to sho

So many injustices in this world, killers, torturers, rapists, bullies all go free because of one thing or another, which absolutely fucking sucks! This book made those injustices more tolerable, fiction or Alace Sweets a vigilante if you want but I call her a hero! Many times people don't care about the victims, the families, they just want to sensationalize a story and unfortunately the ones who come out on top are the bad guys. Yeah, Alace's methods were not conventional at all but ...more

I have been a fan of MariaLisa DeMora and her MC series for a while now and this is so far from those books you would not think the same author has written it.

I love her writing because from the first page she pulls you into the world she has created and you do not even try to escape till you read the last word.

Alace has had a very hard life but she has turned that into seeking vengeance against those who do harm to others,  the whole book was very well detailed in the characters and then heart

Phenomenal book from a tried and true author. I admit that I was a bit hesitant about this book. I'm not a fan of dark book. But this did not feel like a dark book by any means. Yes it covers some heavy topics, but MariaLisa DeMora, wordsmith that she is, made this a story of the enlightenment of a woman and finding love in a life where she has had none.
Alace has lived a hard life from the start and when it came to careers she made the decision to right wrongs. That's not so bad, until it is. Th

This is my confession: I am convinced that Ms. deMora can successfully write any subject. Bikers? Check. Rockers? Check. Sweet wooful romance? Thriller/Suspense?DOUBLE CHECK. Whatever deep dark trench she pulled a character like Alace from should be revisited again and often. My roots as a reader began in the horror/thriller genre, so when one of my favorite contemporary romance authors writes one I tend to be a bit of a skeptic. I am happy to announce that I am no longer skeptical and am chagri ...more

This book is dark and gritty and I literally had to take a day off from reading it because it's that intense. The scene development is brilliant and at times, totally horrifying. This brought me front and center into the story and I became completely invested not only in the story but in Alace and Eric.

The attention to detail, which is one of the things I love most about MLD's books, is so finite that I could actually picture each scene playing in my h

Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available, I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.” ...more
