I was born an ordinary girl with a tiny seed of sickness.
As I got older it grew bigger, manifesting into something sinister.

Mama told me to lock it away and let it wither.

I didn’t know how.
So I hid it.

Solitude became my closest companion.

Solo, single, lonely.

Until Declan.
Until Ethan.

They were drawn to my sickness like moths to a flame.

With them, I was nurtured into somethi

description Now THIS is the Natalie Bennett I know and love. This book was so deliciously f-cked-up. I loved revisiting the Andreou family (Julian, Mason, Katie). They remain, my favorite family of psychopaths, this author has written to date. This one was a bit longer than recent releases and I was glad to see that because this one had a much more developed storyline. It was told in a dual POV format (Helena and Declan). It was very well paced as well.

This was a phenomenal read: Miss Bennett has absolutely smashed this story: there's nobody who can do dark and depraved quite like this author and I think Depravity for me was her most graphic that I have read to date.
First, this can definitely be read as a standalone: but you're probably gonna be like me and want to backtrack as soon as your finished here: to check out the rest of this purely psychotic family who makes the Manson's themselves seem like normal everyday folk.

Well, if you like dark (pitch black actually), you will definitely appreciate this book. So, I suggest read it without any spoilers.

I just want to highlight author's warnings:
There will be scenes of ménage (mm/mmf/mfm/), and explicitly gruesome, often detailed scenes of horror/torture. That aside, Depravity is far from contemporary or conventional.
Buuut, this is a love story, just a bloody one that lacks all sense of morality tied up with a HEA.


I think the above description is just perfect.

Top favorite read of 2018

I just finished this book and while I'm still trying to digest everything I fully read, I cannot recommend this enough. Depravity is my top read of 2018 for a myriad of reasons.

This is a love story in its truest, sickest form. Unconventional? Yes; but only because we're used to what society deems to be normal.

Helena Gardner is a broken girl. She's endured many things in her life that's made her into the monster (and I hate to use that word to describe her) that she is,

4 stars!

This story was definitely original, and really, unlike anything I have read before.

I do believe in soulmates, but I do not believe we are born tethered to another person. Instead, I believe we grow into being tied to them through experiences, challenges, and, of course, the choices we make. People fall in and out of love all the time, but a soulmate changes with you, even if it isn't right away. Do I believe the three MCs in this book were destined to be together? I mean...

A big shout out to the author for giving us dark lovers an epic story of darkness. It sucked me right in and even just typing that has me wondering how can I possibly love a story like this.

I’m not gonna go into the storyline. If you love dark reads then just read this. You won’t regret it....or will you lol I lost track of how many wtf moments I had or wondered about my own sanity as I loved this story.

Thanks to the author providing ARC in exchange of honest review.Whenever I hear there is a book by Natalie Bennett, there are three things I think. One, I wonder what topic will this story be?Two, how dark does she goes this time?Three, I pray for fewer grammar mistakes.This is the things I can relate to Natalie Bennett, her stories I've always love to read bu there are like tons of mistakes inside.

Dark, messed up, depraved, bloody, deadly and oh so captivating.


The more I read of this author the more I question my own sanity and not kidding she scares me little bit. This was another example of her seriously fucked up imagination and I loved every dirty minute of it. I did not know that the family was introduced in another book but now that I know I will be picking up Mason's book. You do not need to have read it to read this one, but if you are sick like me then you will wa

OMG!

This book made my dark heart and romantic soul all kinds of happy! It was all kinds of dark, deviant and depraved, but it was also sweet and romantic (I know you’re thinking “what the what??” But trust me, it’s true) and toss in a good dose of smexy...and I simply devoured this in no time flat and wanting more when the book ended.

What can I say about Helena, Declan and Ethan other than I absolutely adored them! They fascinated me on every level and I honestly liked them

Depravity by Natalie Bennett is a very sick and twisted tale of a young lady who likes to fix things. Her Mother wants her to fight her urges. Mother keeps her in the basement. She is mentally, emotionally and physically abused by mother and her boyfriend. When the boyfriend accidentally kills mother, Helena not only fixes the boyfriend but her mother. Now living with her father she meets Declan and Ethan. They are two sick individuals who have their eye on Helena. She will fit in with what they ...more

"She was death disguised as a pretty doll. I'd never seen anything so lovely."

This Author has become one of my favorite WTF Authors with each book I read!! This one flew off the rails in uncharted territory and blew my perceptions way out of the water!! Decadently dark, massively hot, psychotically erotic, and just fabulously and savagely addictive like menace coursing through my veins!!

Insanely twisted!


Straight to the jugular, this one. Not one part of this book is sugar coated. It's born into dark and stays that way from start to finish. Of course unconventional, darkley entertaining, and insanely hot. This book definitely makes me question myself... I haven't read a book this disgustingly engrossing in a while. I couldn't stop reading this mess of pure depravity.

The attraction and affection, albeit twisted yet blistering. All consuming lust leaked from every crevice. I was

Holy shit, what was this and why did I love it so much?!

This book is so sick and twisted but it's the best parts of both. It's not derogatory or gross. It's amazing, but the word 'amazing' really doesn't cover what Depravity is.

I have yet to read the Obscene duet, but for sure, it is on my next TBR - and it will get read. Not reading the duet prior did not hurt me one bit. The only regret was not being introduced to this family sooner! I must 'fix it!'

When I saw characters from previous books, I couldn't hep but think that the gang was all here. The cast of characters were utterly twisted. For some bloody reason that made me love them more. They weren't normal. They were unique. They were absolutely sick. Helena was an interesting main character. She had felt nothing but wanted to fix things on a given occasion. Her version of fix... Well... Let me just say she was very imaginative.

Declan and Ethan were lovers as well as partners but they we

I love Natalie Bennett I will one click whatever book she writes even if It's just her re-telling the ABC's she has got away with words and stories. This book is hands down one of the best books of 2018. If you haven't read Natalie you truly never experienced an amazing story before and everyone needs to read this book. Helena is sick but not the dying kind or the kind that can be cured, but she is told repeatedly to hide her sickness and she does for a little while.  Declan and Ethan are lookin ...more

I'm honestly not sure how to review this one. I'm going with 3.5 stars. I've enjoyed all the Natalie Bennett books I've read, but this one may have just pushed me a bit too far out of my comfort zone. It was a little too heavy on the graphic violence and gore, and a bit light on the romance. There were a couple scenes that had me seriously cringing. Having said that, I still had to finish the book to see how things ended for Helena. Next time she gives a warning for graphic violence/gore though, ...more

I Give this book a 5/5 Star Rating.
Heat level: 4/5, not as many scenes as I would’ve liked.
This books is a Deliciously Decadent Dark Erotic Romance, definitely a continuous reread!
This is a MMF, with a lovely HEA.
I Love Declan, Ethan & Helena!
PLEASE make them another book, I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of them!
I need more of this Power Trio!!!

Natalie Bennett has made me speechless....AGAIN!

This is my 12th book I've read by Natalie. She's one of my all time favorite author. So I know I'll love anything she writes. The only thing that I wasn't a fan of was the Old Money Roulette series and that's okay. It just wasn't for me. I just didn't think it was dark enough. But Depravity was. I loved it and became obsessed with it to the point I read the whole thing on Thanksgiving this year. Do I feel guilty? No, I don't because this book was l

What a dark and twisted read. The sinister and gruesome acts that were portrayed in this story are some of the worst (and I mean that in a good way) that I have ever read.

This is the first time reading this author and I loved how she didn't hold back with her story. My only gripe is that a final read through to fix the errors and some paragraphs/sentences that didn't make sense would have been good. I personally don't let this sway my rating of a book but it would have made it a bit more enjoya

Open Spotify and listen to the playlist. I've never heard such a fitting playlist before.

The cover of this book is, EVERYTHING!

This book is dark, dirty and depraved. Basically everything I want in a book! Helena, Declan and Ethan are the type of characters I dream about. Natalie Bennett has a way with words that make you love the twisted shit they do.

Depravity is my favorite of this authors to date.

***WARNING*** Some scenes in this book will disturb you. Even the toughest among us will balk a bit at the details given. If you're good to proceed, take a deep breath, then read on.

This was not what I expected from the MFM blurb with a little kink thrown in. It was a lovely menage that started with some serious MM action that I personally loved. It set the tone for the entire storyline. I felt the character development was a little stilted TBH. Too much was assumed IMO. I have a very vivid imag

Whew. What a down and dirty novel. If you like novels that are unconventional and on the dark side then this book is for you. Depravity is just what you would expect with a title like that. I have to say that I loved every single minute of it. This book is full of triggers so buyer beware.

This book was a complete head trip into the dark and twisted world of Chataeu Dahlia. If you loved the Love Obscene Duet (like it did, Still a huge Mason fan) then this book is right up you alley.

Natalie Bennett is your average socially awkward author that turns her spontaneous head ramblings into stories.

She has a penchant for writing about villainous immoral men, crazed anti-heroines, and tends to deviate away from traditional HEA's.

She likes chocolate, Netflix, and Prickly Pear Margaritas.

When she isn't writing she's hanging out with her husband and their three boys.
