descriptionAll the covers for this series are basically the same so all my comments will remain the same as well for each book. I like the cover on this one a lot. Obviously, it is a great representation of the story (and series). It has good composition and title work as well.description

Gwyn takes a novella and gives us the full length feel of a novel. Well plotted and fleshed out characters. I didn't want it to end.

7 authors, 7 novellas, 7 deadly sins. Wrath is Book #4 in The 7 series. And holyshitdamnfuck woOow.

 War is brutal. Its unforgiving and relentless. It makes men do thingsthings that can never be taken back or forgotten. 

Wrath is short, sharp, and so good. I didnt want it to end. Its about what we are capable of and what we are willing to sacrifice to keep our loved ones safe.

When love is ripped away, wrath invades his soul, blinding his vision and feeding his bloodlust. Fists crunch bone. Flesh

My Review of Wrath (The Seven #4)
by Gwyn McNamee
My Rating 4.5 Stars
When I first saw this collection was coming to fruition I wanted to read them all, I wasnt sure what I would be reading since its all the Seven Deadly Sins, and who knows where that could go within these pages.
This was the first time I have read this author and I surely was not disappointed.
On the run attempting to stay safe, this novella was like reading and watching an action-packed movie in my head. It had moments that were

Wrath is the first novel in the Deadliest Sins series. This is my tenth novel by this author.

Initially reading this, I felt like there some other part of the story that I had missed. The main characters had already fled and were trying to rebuild their lives but I wasnt sure what had happened to them before.

Continuing to read, it didnt matter what I missed. The story gave me flashbacks and bits of information to put some pieces together though not a full picture.

When his women is taken,

Woah this book totally played some mind games with me which I feel like Gwyn does quite often. When will I learn!?

This was a novella, so it was short but definitely not sweet.

Griff is not a good guy, unless hes with Jade. He is willing to do anything he has to do to get her back. And I mean anything. But theres just something about seeing a man capable of so much destruction becoming putty under a womans touch. It kind of makes you want that kind of love, even knowing what kind of man Griff is.

Wrath is the first book in The Deadliest Sin Series by Gwyn McNamee. This is about the fourth time Ive read this book and I love it just as much as I did the first time it blew me away. This might be a short story, but it packs quite a punch. It is dark, erotic, raw, bloody, brutal, and action-packed. It is such a short read, and because quite a lot happens in such a short amount of time- reading this book was like being shot out of a cannon; flinging me into a heart pounding ride while I

Holy freaking Hades! Gwyn McNamee has truly gone to the deep, dark, and gritty world of dark romance and she does it so darn well! Now, I will say that I am a massive fan of Gwyn McNamees and so I may be a bit biased with anything that she writes. I pick it up without a glance in a blurb because I KNOW it will be fantastic. However, this one quite possibly just turned into my absolute favorite book of hers. Im not going to dive much into the details and whatnot because this book is brief (my ...more

Wow! Gwyn has obliterated my expectations here once again. Talk about having a way with words. Wrath is action packed, thrilling and utterly consuming. Griff & Jade are a must read! These characters are perfection.

For a novella length story this crazy talented author managed to pack in ALL the adventure and detail I love in a full length book without feeling rushed. I got the perfect dose of all the FEELS. Right from the start I could feel how enamored Griff is with Jade. Swoon! They are so

This is a short read but totally engaging and really well written

Wrath is a quick read, under an hour, but don't let that stop you giving it a try. It's not a typical romance, given that the hero, Konstandin, and the heroine, Jade, are already together and in love.

The story starts with Jade being kidnapped and follows Konstandin's journey of retribution and rescue. With the exception of the epilogue, it is written solely from the hero's point of view, leaving you in no doubt of both his

My self...the one who had absolutely everything he could ever want and also nothing.

Some books touch you in ways you just dont expect. McNamee writes this way. Wrath, even though it is a dark twisted story, touches you with the loneliness, the anger, and even the hope.

This story is full of violence. Detailed, graphic, violence. Wrath by definition means extreme anger. When faced with losing Jade, Griffin experiences wrath. How he uses that anger is what turns this book into such a twisted

Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 1) by Gwyn McNamee was a dark romance that will have you on the edge of your seat.

The first book in what I believe will be something amazing. This quick read gets your blood going right away, with a quick fire, dark prologue, before getting right into the smutty hotness of the MC's. The stage was set beautifully, and when it was time for the real plot and bloody like action to get underway, It. Was. Glorious.

This book had a "Man of Fire" feel, with a bit of

Jade is Griffs life. She is the reason that his heart beats and he would do anything to protect her from the danger that is stalking their lives. When she is taken by the one person who knows him well, he will have to revert to his ways and once again become Konstandin. Hell will follow along in his wake and those that have his woman will find out what happens when someone has nothing left to lose and wrath on his side.

Gwyn McNamee is one of my favourite authors so I was really looking forward to reading Wrath which is book 1 in The Deadliest Sin series and what an opening book it was! It might only be a short read but it was certainly not short on the action! It was a dark and gritty read, a little bloody and gruesome at times but I 100% fell in love with Griff! I loved his devotion to Jade and he wasnt going to let anyone get in his way along his journey! I loved the two of them

I have read books from this author before and this book was just as good as the ones I have read before. I really find this author's style to be quite refreshing. The characters just seem to come to life and I feel as though I am actually there in the pages as the drama unfolds.

The drama that unfolds around Jade and Konstandin really keeps you glued to the pages. I just couldn't put the book down. The feud between Konstandin and

Wrath (The Deadliest Sin Series Book 1) by Gwyn McNamee. HOLY MOLY! This is a book that when you pick it up you better buckle up and hold on. You will read it to the end without breathing. Its a short book ( The only bad thing about it) and the story of Jade & Griffin. Griffin is so swept up with Jade that he changes his whole being to be the man for her. Griffin grew up only knowing torture, pain, cruelty and death so turning into a good man for Jade is against everything Griffin knows. ...more

Wrath by Gwyn McNamee is a short novella, that is definitely not your usual sweet romance story. It is a story that is dark and violent, gritty and a little gruesome but it is enthralling. I know when I read one of Gwyns books I am in safe hands. Even though Griff has a dark, dark side I fell in love with him and the woman he loves. Griff was made to kill and torture and really is not a good guy, but that dark and ruthless man disappears when he is with the one thing he love more than anything ...more

Wrath by Gwyn McNamee is the first book in the Deadliest Sins series. This is a dark story that you will devour in one sitting.
I simply could not put this book down. It is a relatively short read, and yet the book feels so much longer than it is because it is so intense. It really felt like I could have been reading a full length novel.
You are taken on a rollercoaster of a journey, one that is dark and twisted. As usual this author completely takes over your sense when you dive into one of her

Wrath is an exceptional read! This book contains all of the intensity usually found in a long novel. It begins with a love story that is written so sincerely that you can feel the love exuding from Jade and Griffin. Then you are slammed with the unexpected jolt of fear and intense anger when Jade is kidnapped. Griffin stages and implements a War plan that is graphically vivid and bloody to recover his love. I felt every emotion from love to grief. This story is genuinely that good. Although ...more

"When love is ripped away, wrath invades my soul, blinding my vision and feeding my bloodlustit feels like coming home."

Griff is truly a man of all men - he is willing to sacrifice anything & everything to keep the woman he loves - Jade - safe - no matter the cost. This action-packed, intense, harrowing story is enough to keep you on edge and at times, causes you to grieve. It is truly a remarkable story, showing how anger destroys so many things.

Wrath was an action packed steamy romance. There was not a dull moment in this storyline at all. I was captured by the authors writing from page one. Konstandin was an excellent character. He fought hard for love and had to face the hardest decision ever by going against his own blood. He grew up in a life full of torture, pain, cruelty, and death. He chose to change for Jade aka Rea. I loved his focus and determination despite his
