Fresh out of college and headed straight for my dream job, I didn’t think things could get any better.

In an instant, my happy ever after had begun.
The life I’d stumbled into was beautiful, and the man I loved was perfect.
But perfection comes at a cost, and I’d slumbered through all the alarms.

Bloodstained Beauty is unlike anything Ella Fields has ever written! It's a dark romance with twists and turns and violence that had me saying WTF more than once! I'm a huge fan of this author's work and dark romance, so when I heard Ella was writing one, I knew I had to get my hands on it as soon as possible!


Jemima, a recent college grad, fell hard and fast for her fiance, Miles, right after landing her dream job as a teacher at an elementary school within driving distance of her home town.

MY REVIEW: can also be found on my blog:

BLOODSTAINED BEAUTY Is a full length dark romance novel by Ella Fields. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’

Let me start off by saying that to make this review as spoiler free as I possibly can but give you a wee taste of what's to come this review won't make a hell of a lot of sense to you.

Things were starting to take shape in twenty three year old Jemima’s life not long from graduating she’s moved out of home and has land

This book was fantastic, I was hooked from the first pages and I was intrigued.Bloodstained Beauty is a brilliant story that will keep you on edge most of the time.


I believe it's better to go blind in this one.I devour it, everything about it, it was perfect.It's a raw story, and the characters rocked this story!

I don't want to give anything away, but be prepared for an addictive story packed with suspense and twists.

Fairy tales, those perfect happy endings, were indeed for suckers. Suckers who could very well wind up dead.

I'm going to keep it real with you all here and admit that I didn't even bother to read the blurb before adding this book for two very simple reasons:
1. It's Ella Fields. She writes it, I read it.
2. That cover. Don't you judge me either! Tell me you didn't want to lick it when you saw it. TELL ME!

But I digress as usual.

This book? Nothing like what I expected. It was like a dar

I’m trying to get my pulse down a bit. One thing that defines Ella Fields is that she doesn’t stick to one genre or the ones that she’s comfortable with. No, she challenges me every time with her stories and their characters. Bloodstained Beauty did just that. From the first three pages alone I was intrigued and curious as hell. What is this story all about and how did the main character Jemima end up in such a predicament? That was my first reaction. The next I did was to just div

There are just some authors who you keep in your back pocket because you want them with you at all times. Every blurb that they’ve ever shared, every book that they’ve ever written, you read it. You know why? Because somewhere along the way, they became yours and that feeling of always having their words close to you will always bring you a sense of peace and fulfillment. Ella fields is that author for me and with every chapter I read from this woman, she never ceases to amaze me but damn did s

Each and every book I read from Ella Fields blows me away, and this book has got to be my favourite from her.


It's sexy, stunningly written and will have you swooning so hard, and of course swearing out loud. And it would not be an Ella book without throwing your e-reader a few times.

PREPARE yourselves. You are going to be CONSUMED with these characters and their heart-stopping love

Two very different men make her feel completely

One of aspects I love of Ella Fields’s books is that they are never the same. The same excellent writing, intriguing characters, captivating plot?? Absolutely. Bloodstained Beauty is all of this and more.

I could rave about this story for hours and hours and hours.

However, I’m going to be awfully vague with this review, because you’ll want to step into this story utterly blind as it is mesmerising and mind-blowing in its delivery and you don’t want this flawless execution to be ruined.

It is difficult finding accurate words to describe the seamless brilliance and finesse of this dark narrative anyway. I was transfixed and immersed throughout, knowing yet not knowing where the story would head.

Since every single thing anyone gives away about the plot or the book will be a spoiler, I am just going to say:

Bloodstained Beauty is not like any of Ella Fields previous works. With that said, there are authors you trust implicitly to take you on a journey that is unconventional, intriguing and completely captivating. Bloodstained Beauty is that story and Ella Fields is that author. She somehow manages to know exactly what you need and consistently delivers on every level. Ella’s words are like a drug, she’s my dealer and I can’t wait to get my next fix.

This book was quite a surprise. It was intriguing, darkish, suspenseful, and full of twists and turns. I went into this read with nothing but the blurb and I’m thankful I did. I understood that there was a love story but interwoven with a mysterious element. As the story progressed, the twists and turns were captivating and alluring. The who, what, where and whys of the story kept escalating and created more suspense and intrigue.

Okay...I'm not going to lie but this was disappointing. I really wanted to like this book! But it just wasn't what I expected at all..
Before reading Bloodstained Beauty, I had to get my hands on this. It's been so long since I've read a Dark read. Dark reads are my absolute favourite, and when this came out, getting a copy of it was all I could think about.
So, when I started it, it was alright, but in some areas, it felt a little rushed. The idea of the plot wasn't anything new to me.

Absolutely brilliant! This story takes you on a romantic ride filled with first love thrills. But the ride derails and Jemma comes face to face with a real life nightmare. Jemma begins her journey as a naive young girl straight out of college with her first job but ends up feisty and a badass. I love her. This book is angsty, suspenseful, an absolute page turner, hot-hot-hot chemistry, get ready to fall in love! It's also funny and emotional. Definitely will become one of your favorites!!!

Oh lordie... this book sucked me in from the get go. I couldn't stop, wouldn't stop. I didn't know what I was in for with this one, like no clue besides that it wasn't what I was used to reading from Ella or even in general. So I was dying to get to the heart of it, I was literally waiting for the shoe to drop so I could see what the book was all about but boy was I wrong in thinking I'd learn everything in one go.

What do you do when one of your favorite authors divulges a secret about writing something that is very different than her other books? You read it of course. While she might have been afraid of stepping off the precipice and falling into the unknown abyss below, I wasn't for her. I knew, like everything she writes, would be done with her typical style and flair and would knock me out of my socks. And she did.

Gaaah I tought I love Ella Fields with all her angst, sweet, beautiful romance but dang it she threw me a curved ball with this one!
Her first dark romance, she said.
Her angst for her readers acceptance of this new side of her, she said.
At this moment I don't even care what genre she write, she can even Re write the yellow pages and I'll read it! Cause dang it Ella Fields, you sure can write! 😂😍😍😍
Would love to say more about this

**4-1/2 Stars** (due to just a couple of things that my picky brain questioned and a wish for a bit more at the end, but the book was so great that I've rounded the star rating up to 5)

I'm so glad to know that I can always count on a great read from Ella Fields, and Bloodstained Beauty is no exception.

It's romantic, it's angsty, it's mysterious, it's SO well written--it's everything I look for in a romance. But at the same time, it's nothing like any romance I've ever read.

I'm being vague here

Bloodstained Beauty. Ella Fields writes a tale of mystery, love, betrayal, and open mindedness. I love how Ella set’s up the story of Jemima and her journey to love. Ella takes Jemima on a path to fight for love and stay true to her values. She’s introduces characters that make her think about who she loves and why. One of those characters is Thomas Verrone. I also, loved how I was so invested in the mystery of Jemima’s path to love. It was set up having you think one way and scenes happening in ...more

I am at a loss for words. I am transfixed. I am hypnotized. I am in a state of being so immersed by a book that I don't want to leave the safety of it's words. I don't think I've ever been this obsessed about a book or its characters or a story as much as I am over Bloodstained Beauty. I didn't want to say goodbye. I wanted to live within these pages for as long as possible.
