Toy was the perfect finish to Jolie and Mason’s story. It’s action packed, suspenseful, and there’s even a bit of morbid humor. I think a good way to read this series is going in blind, so I don’t want to say too much. Just know that it’s well written, and wraps up so many of the questions that were left in this story.

First thing: if the author doesn't already state this explicitly, there should be a major CW/trigger warning on this book for sexual assault. I'm pretty liberal about this given the context--Yes, it's a DARK romance, but in this case it involves non-eroticized sexual content with the non-hero, so be aware.

Okay, that out of the way: Yeah, this is dark, and one heck of a trip. Jolie and Mason finally get their HEA, finally, but they have to go through the equivalent of a screamer roller coaster th

End of the story full of action, twists and turns
Caution spoiler part 2
I found this last part excellent, which is always well written, with excellent characters and is full of action, twists. On the other hand, some parts are always difficult to read.
Mason was shot, but he does not die. Now that Jolie is certain that the men of her father's sect are still active, Mason and her, decide to find out who denounced them before, and to find the sect. But its ramifications are extensive, and it's hard

This is the 3rd book in the dark series and I do recommend reading them in order. Jolie and Mason’s story continues and it is not an easy one. Now that Mason knows how he really feels can he save her in time? This is a fast-paced read with lots of twists and turns, plenty of drama, suspense and emotion. This entire read has so much depth to it I was hooked from beginning to end. I loved it!
Trilogy ends with love, retribution and a manhunt

The third and final book in this dark romance trilogy changes things up, with Jolie and Mason on the same side (at last) and growing closer together. She’s forgiven Mason, but that doesn't mean that everything's OK. Her father and an unknown number of cult members are alive and targeting Jolie. Their enemies are closing in.

All this gives Mason a definite redemption arc—as far as his relationship with Jolie is concerned. When her life is at stake,

What an absolute fantastic ending to this dark twisted trilogy.

Quick note: This is the third book in the Original Sin series and you must read the following books prior to reading this one. Torn (The Prequel for this series), Taken (Book One) and Torment (Book Two); once you've read these then you will be able to fully comprehend and enjoy this book.

Jolie and Mason have been through a lot and it doesn't seem like they are going to be getting a reprieve any time soon if the members of Path of th

Explosive, hard-won HEA (or as much as one can get in their situation. Let's just say it's perfect for them) for this darkly, twisted romance. Jolie and Mason's intense, chaotic journey has been full of suspense, intrigue, tantalizing passion, and uncontrolled chemistry. It's been a whirlwind that has left my emotions reeling often times days after reading one of the books in the series and this book is included. It will haunt your thoughts after you read it, like a flash in the dark. So glad I ...more

Jolie and Mason have literally been through hell together but their story isn't finished until you read the "Toy." Stella Hart has taken us through every step of this journey and, if you've been following along - waiting on this one, you won't be disappointed. This one turns into a mystery of sorts and previously unknown stories and explanations come from unlikely and astonishing sources. My heart hasn't slowed down yet but it will, eventually, when it catches up with my brain that this story h ...more

This series started off strong and dominating always shocking me from one explosive twist to the next and the Toy continues to bring an impacting punch with danger, fear and more violence making it incredibly hard to put down. A whirlwind of emotions with tantalizing dark chemistry and some forced brutal interactions that was hard to read but made this story all the better for it. A perfect HEA ending to this horror riddled read that finally lifted the dark cloud that hovered thr

What an amazing end to this series. Jolie and Mason have been through the ringer. Their story is intense, dark and twisted. We get the answers we are looking for and can these two survive the cult as they come back for one of their own? No spoilers from me. Loved this book, I recommend this book and series to everyone. This series was a little out of my realm, but I am so glad I took a chance on it and pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoy these two. I reviewed an advanced reader copy of this ...more

This is the third part to this story, and it was absolutely brilliant! The author has done it again and released an amazingly dark mesmerizing and deliciously addictive plot. The writing is perfect and drew me in from the first paragraph. The characters are not perfect, even the ones I was rooting for had their flaws and darkness. You have to read this from the beginning of the series as you do not want to miss a single word of this wonderfully written story.

Jolie and Mason's dark and twited story reaches its epic conclusion in this the third book of this series. You must read books one and two first to get the complete story and have full understanding of the characters and events of the story. Wow, what a gripping, raw, intense and suspenseful journey this has been. Please be aware that there is a lot of possible trigger content included. So if that is a concern for you, I suggest you forgo these books. The tension, drama, brutality and nerve rack ...more

Perfect ending for the most loved series

Stella Hart has given a prefect ending for the love story of Mason and Jolie in the last book of Original Sin Trilogy. I was spellbound when I read the book, the way Mason loves Jolie and how he finds and kills everyone who had taken her, has proved his love for her. Also whatever struggles she comes across Jolie, the way she believed he will come to save her, proves her trust on him. Wonderful story amazing finish. I loved it.

Perfect in all it's dark glory

This is a perfect conclusion to Jolie's and Mason’s story. It was less dark than the other two parts but extremely suspenseful and action packed. Truly perfect writing and thought through plot. One hell of page turner. I don't want to spoil or give anything away but if you read previous parts this is a no brainer that you would want to know how the story goes. And if you didn't and you love dark romance don't think twice and just dive deep into this cruel, dark, dep

Mason Ashwood is in love with Jolie Chastain and the feeling's mutual but life isn't all rainbows and unicorns. As long as the rest of the cult is still out there, they will keep sending guys to kidnap Jolie. And the cult has the money and connections to take Jolie away from Mason. Will Mason and Jolie get their HEA?

Toy is the action-packed, suspenseful and brutal ending to the Original Sin series that you won't be able to put down

I could not put this book down, it kept me on the edge of my seat.
Although it's not for everyone, some of the scenes were violent and difficult to read, if you've got this far in the series you should be aware of that already.
It had a gripping storyline which I did not predict. Mason and Jolie have many more challenges to face.
I had to suspend disbelief a little at the end, but for me that is what reading is about in the first place, to escape into a different world.

Nobody writes dark romance quite like this author. The conclusion to this trilogy proves just that.

Mason and Jolie set out to put an end to the cult’s hold on them once and for all. Persuading a local cop to help them makes all the difference as they realise the cult’s influence is still a force to be reckoned with.

As usual, the twists, the turns, the sheer inventiveness of this story had me in its thrall; it’s a real page turner. It’s a difficult subject, dealing with a cult and all the abuse o

Just when I thought it couldn't get any more intense...Holy Spitballs! Again DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE TRIGGERS!! And this contains a ton of them!!
This was a perfect ending to the story. The snitch shocked me and it didn't shock me. The final showdown was perfect...and Beck's involvement was great!
This was definitely a very hard won HEA, but oh so worth it!

As the final part to this twisted dark story continues, Mason and Jolie are thrown into my turmoil as the cult revival sets the couple on a dark and dangerous road to their worst fears.
Mason will do what he has to, to save and protect the woman he loves. While Jolie survives on faith alone that her man will somehow find her again. A brilliant ending to this epic tale.

Phew. Is the cult still thriving? Are Mason and Jolie's lives going to be threatened once again? If you want an amazing, non-stop action, suspense romance, Original Sin will take you on an intense journey. Love is so strong!!! Jolie is so darn brave! Mason, an amazing man! I'm so darn thankful for Beck! I absolutely loved this book! It was very hard to put down!

Jolene and Mason's story continues on it's dark path. The twists and turns are mind boggling and there are lots of triggers so be warned. This is a gripping, dark read that will pull you into their story deeper than ever and take you on a intruiging ride. What would you do for love?

I enjoyed this trilogy although I like dark reads this was probably pushing a little too dark in the abuse for me, the conclusion to the cult storyline was a bit too over the top BUT this was still a very enjoyable trilogy 😁

While this story answered all my questions and then some, it lost a little oomph in the storytelling. At times it lacked the cohesiveness and the dialogue seemed immature and stilted. However, I still enjoyed the fact that it gave me the closure of a great trilogy.
