My FULL review will be posted nearing the release date!
Jo-Anne Joseph shows a true talent in her writing, this is a second book I have read of hers, and the first one I get to BETA read and give my insights into the story, which was such a thrilling process on its own.
My first impressions were that this is one step forward towards the captivating and gripping feeling of being pulled in, tossed and swept away from the edges of sanity in this interesting, fast paced ...more
Nothing in life is ever monochrome.
I discovered that a long time ago,
And with all such lessons,
I learned it the hard way.
Dark cannot exist without light.
Night can’t occur without day.
Despair can’t flourish without hope.
I couldn’t live without her,
She can’t survive without me.
She was meant to be my protector.
It was us against the world.
Instead, she became my worst fear.
I allowed that despair to grow and fester.
I let it mar me, then, ...more
If you’re looking for twisty, turny, with potential triggers, and thrilling suspense. Then, Siren is definitely the read for you. I will tell you that you will be ...more
SIREN is simply the most intense book I have ever read this year. To describe it as romantic suspense would be incorrect. It is definitely more of a psychological thriller mixed with some romance. Just know SIREN is not for the faint of heart- it’s actually a bit of a mindf*ck.
There were scenes in the book that made me cringe- made me want to understand the surprising actions of these ...more
Siren and Sage are sisters. Siren is the stronger of the two both mentally and physically. Siren controls Sage and Sage ...more
I am not sure how to even begin this review because quite honestly, it is an experience that the reader has to go on by themselves to truly enjoy this book. If I give too much away, it will be like giving the reader the ending one of their most anticipated movie they’d been waiting to watch.
So, the question is, how to begin this review in a way that does this book justice. First, I am going to say, just buy the book! Don’t worry, I will give you more than just that little ...more
Sage and Siren are twin sisters and Siren is an absolute... well let's just say that abuse doesn't always come in the form of spousal shall we? I've never met a character I ...more
“She was meant to be my protector. It was us against the world. Allies. Partners. Instead, she became my worst fear. I allowed that despair to grow and fester. I let it mar me, then, almost destroy me. I realized something had to give. This time, there is no turning ...more
This story is intense... and shocking... gripping... good.
I just dived in without any knowledge about that book and was thrown into a world of loss, grief, fear but also love, hope and emotions.
Meet Sage and Siren, two beautiful young woman so similar outside but so different inside. Where Sage is full of empathy, love and good behavior but weak in her ability to fight for her wants and needs, Siren is strong and straight forward but ...more

Nothing in life is monochrome. I learned that hard way. Dark cannot exist without light. Despair only flourishes with the loss of hope. Likewise, we couldn’t survive without each other. She was meant to be my protector. It was us against the world. But instead, she became my worst fear. That fear grew and festered. It marred me, then, almost destroyed me. I realized something had to give. This time, there was ...more
This is an ARC review.
I gave this book 4 stars. I’m not sure if that is the best rating for this book. I will probably change it later as I’ve only just finished the book and do feel a little too close to it at the moment.
However, this book was amazing. It was a bit slow in the beginning as we were getting to know the characters, but as we got deeper into the plot of the story it was something I could just not put down. I know because I did try to put it down so I could process ...more
3.5 A Catchy Read for A Dark or Rainy Day
As strange as it may be to say, the quotes in between certain chapters of this book was my favorite part about this read. For me it was an added bump that made me want to continue to turn the pages and was styled very appealingly. Unfortunately, I had the considerable twist well figured out when I hit just over a quarter of the way through the book, which was no surprise as I am well known as the spoiler of well-wrapped gifts in my family. I was...more
This book is an eye opener. It should be celebrated, become a classic and be mandatory reading for everyone. This is one of the first books I've read that actually and factually explores mental illness. Not just mental illness, but how it affects every aspect of life, from perceptions to relationships to self awareness. The book is brilliantly written and exceptionally researched. The characters are very real, with faults and flaws that make them more ...more
It is amazingly intense and the author prepares you for the journey for you to take alongside the characters really well. The characters and story development were perfectly done. This book was extremely well written and has fast become one of ...more

The book, which is not my ‘usual read’, was mind blowing! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I could not put it down!
Once again, the author described the characters and events in such exact detail I had a clear picture in my head of all of them. This dark psychological romance is gripping and will have you waiting for the next event to unfold, hoping for the good but expecting the worse. The story will make ...more
This book may have a lot of triggers for some people and i really was not sure on whether i would this book when i first started it.
However i am really glad that i stuck with this book even if some of the stuff is harrowing and could make some people uncomfortable.
Sage has had a bum deal in life and there are so many twists and turns it is only towards the end that i got a grip as to what had happened to Sage and ...more
