"The world we live in doesn’t make sense. And the harder we try to make it fit, the less it does."

PHE.NO.ME.NAL. It all starts with the name of this third installment of the Tomb of Ashen Tears series. How perfect is it? Brilliantly so.

The tone, completely renewed, maybe less tormented than Famous Last Words',  surprised me. Clearly, the inspiration and creativity of Mrs Samuels knows no limit. Anticipation drove me crazy, as I kept wondering how things would turn out in this opus.

Dayummm…...HOLY HELL!!!! EMILY was freaking ahhmazing!! I swear KRS writes solely for my tears. Happy tears, sad tears, heart in my throat this can’t be happening tears. SO DAMN GOOD!!! The wedding is coming and Sal has an impossible task to complete. Will he figure out everything in time or lose the one he loves more than words?

Sal and Iris's story is filled with so many emotions and the reader feels them all.
Kailee writes these extraordinary tales and the reader gets drawn in quickly and held until the last page.

Wow...I know I get repetitive when I speak of writing of Kailee Reese Samuels. But when I get through with one of her books, I usually sit back, exhale slowly and quietly say aloud, “Wow.” And then I have to readjust back to the mundane, the normal life, because for hours previous I’ve been in Sal Raniero’s world, a wonderfully complex and intriguing world created by Ms. Samuels. But even in my return to normalcy, the contents of the book stay with me for quite some time through the words spoken ...more

Kailee you are a mastermind lady!! Wow this may just be my favourite book of yours yet. Kailee has a way of entrenching you into her stories, you are so engrossed in her characters because her words are just so skillfully written.. you want to look away but you just can't. The love between Sal, Iris and Deacon OMG is just so intense!! Sal will do anything to save his queen Iris and Deacon is the same with Sal. So unconventional but so freaking amazingly HOT together and separately... I can't get ...more

Every time I read one of these lil books, I find myself sitting trying to process it all. Then how to write a review that will do the justice. It never feels right to me no matter what I put in here. KRS is one of a kind. You just have to dive in to the world she has created & live with the characters. Sal is growing up! We are now starting to see him take charge & go after the things he wants. Sal and The Unholy are making a name for themselves, getting where they need to be. So grab some bubbl ...more

"Love is like a virus, spreading like hot molten lava and seizing our time together, like an everlasting bond."

Now more than ever, Sal's love for Iris needs to indeed speak in "more than words". He's got a lot to do to prove he is worthy of guarding the Lotus, and that means showing he is worthy to her family. We spend a lot of time watching Sal try to repair the mistakes of his father, of trying to get some of those irons out of the fire.

I think of all the books in this series so far, this one

Good book. 👍🏻 I'm inspired to get laid and shank a bitch. 😈

Do yourself a favor, skip this stupidly long review and just buy the book. 👌🏻

On a more serious note, this book changes EVERYTHING. There isn't a character, in or out of Sugargrove, left untouched by the events in this one. Although KRS usually plays with our heads and our hearts, this one took that to a whole new level. I was left bereft and completely satisfied, simultaneously, at the end.

I have been reading Kailee's books for a while, and I must say this may be my new favorite (even though they are all great)! I just couldn't get enough of these amazing characters! Of course, Sal is as charming as ever, but he has found himself in a position where his charm and words are no longer enough-he must remember that old familiar saying-actions are stronger than words. His biggest goal is protecting the Lotus. How will he do that? Well, he will have to bring his

Lies, lies and more lies. I never know who I can trust. This author is the twisted Queen of the dark poetry. Shakespeare had nothing on this queen. Several key characters did not make it and while it surprised me, some pleased me. Of course our resident serial killer Nico had a hand in a few. One line in the book goes, "you have to go through hell to find happy" and I have to say the inferno is hot. As time passes we see many changes in our characters. The unstable sometimes make poor choices. A ...more

This is a book that will fulfill all your check lists: riveting, thrilling, haunting, tragic, romantic, hilarious, mafia, conspiracy, dysfunction, star-crossed lovers, sacrifice, and much, much more. From the very first page and down to the last, the story captures you and doesn't let up. This is a thrill ride that you never want to end.

Though this is the third book of a series, don't let that daunt you at all. This really can be read as a standalone and is truly a good way to introduce yourself

Wow what a intense read from beginning to end. Sal and Iris’s story is heartbreaking, loving and just so much more that you can’t stop reading. I was a emotional mess at the end of this book. Definitely a unique story that felt never ending. 5/5 stars

How do you put into words all the depth and emotions that come from reading a book? Now imagine it over and over again from an incredibly talented and sometimes evil with a dirty mind and lots of dirty words author who is also flower child sweet. I know I have said this before but I can not stress enough that if you have never read a KRS book and met Sal you are absolutely missing out. Kailee has written 23 books in this crazy world of Sal and every book j
5 glorious stars!

Finally! I’ve gotten what I’ve been dreaming about since Juliet. Sal and Iris together again! I won't tell you if they're together in the end, or if they make it out alive, but I will say they at least have contact with one another and it's fantastic! I can’t say if this is HEA since, let’s be real, it’s a Kailee book, so you’ll just have to read this behemoth yourself.

This is written in chronological order and various POVs so we can see all that is going on with all the chara

Just dropping in quickly to say that my eyes cannot move fast enough to take in all the fabulousness that is this book! Fast paced, full of intrigue, masses of plot development and revelations, and now I need to get back to it... brilliant!!!!.....and now:

Outstanding! What a book! Written by an author who displays confidence and verve, who allows space and time to develop her complex plotting, and who allows her characters to take hold of their lives and really be! It is a stunning, riveting rea

Oh wow what a book again kailee you have not disappointed me. Words cannot describe how I felt reading this story, kaillee knows how to pull you in with the story and the characters, I can't get enough of Sal and Iris and to throw Deacon in the mix also WOW!!!!

There are times when you find an author who never ceases to amaze you with their words. Where you cannot find the right words for a worthy review. Well this author and story are one of those times. EMILY is one heck of a ride that you want to savor, digest and revisit. Questions are answered but then more come to mind. Expected the unexpected is my best advice for this story. A whole array of emotions will engulf you and leave you wanting more. I cannot wait to see what she comes out with next b ...more

What can I say? Kailee has done it again what an amazing read. Sal and Iris's story continues in this fantastic read, just when you think you know what is going to happen it doesn't prepare to have your mind blown. I don't really like to give anything away with regards to the story but it is highly recommended as are all of Kailee's books. She has a way of drawing you into to the story and she certainly throws some curve balls just to keep you on your toes fantastic

This author is definitely one of the most intelligent authors I’ve read-and I can feel that statement to my very core whenever I read one of her books. Each one she writes is deliciously dark, and something that screws with your mind so thoroughly that you can’t put the book down. This story was no different-Sal and Iris have this connection that makes your kindle ooze with emotion-and I loved it. I’m scared to see what’s next, but so utterly fascinated!

Sal and Iris are everything just wow so beautifully complex full of so many emotions that will definitely stay with You, the writing is outstanding and very descriptive in a way that you feel it all.
Sal is so drool worthy in every single action and word that comes out of his mouth in the way he feels, solves and thinks Iris is one lucky girl. I loved it and couldn't get enough.

I'm still processing the roller coaster of this book, it's truly amazing! It's part of a series, BUT so many read Every Minute I Love You (Emily) with absolutely no problem. I've always loved Sal and Iris together and reading the struggle of emotions and the love between them broke me at times. Sal is running out of time, knowing if he doesn't find some answers and change things he may lose his girl. Who can he trust anymore? He has doubts on some whom he would never think could betray him or ke ...more

Being fully warned, I buckled up for the ride of the year before opening the first page of this third book of the series. And yes, it is a wonderful roller coaster of a ride too.

Sal... I love him! I know I can’t leave it at that but that basically sums it up. He’s a gorgeous specimen of a man, extremely passionate with a big heart and huge capacity to love. As much as he is imbued in the darkness of the underworld and has his vices, he does have a conscience and it is this that is guiding him. H

Breathe. There were about 852 times I had to remind myself to breathe while reading this story. I've said it before and I will no doubt say it again, This story is not a story you simply read... for a moment you live it. And for a life time it will stay with you. I dont know if I'm even the same person I was before this book. Seeing the Growth of not only Sallykins. But Iris and Deacon and well frickin everybody... it was beyond breathtaking. This cast.

Since this is part of a series - a very emotionally intense series - It makes it a bit hard to review the book in detail as I do not want to give away any spoilers.

If you have not read the previous books in this series - Stop -
To fully experience as a reader the depth of love these characters have for one another - the trials they have faced - the sacrifices they have made - you need to start at the beginning.

Kailee Reese Samuels takes her readers beyond the written word.

Kailee Reese Samuels, there’s no word to describe how Emily played with my emotions in the most disturbing lovable way. I couldn’t stop crying, laughing, hurting and loving.

Emily is about Sal and Iris, how they need to sacrifice for their happiness. How Sal and Deacon’s relationship develops in a even more beautiful one.

When I read KRS’s books, she makes me forget about my on life. KRS makes me live and breathe Sal in a way that I can deny that she has me hook for life.

Like always people don’t

The anticipation is over. My mind is reeling. Once again, I'm taken into the world of Sal and Iris and I really don't want to go home. Please don't make me. The mystery, the intrigue, the love, the hot scenes and sooo much's all here. Come take a ride on this crazy train. You will not be disappointed.

I didn’t read the first two but she did an amazing job of letting the reader know the back story and get to know the characters again.

Sal and Iris. Iris and Sal. My favorite couple in this whole universe. Kailee is a mastermind of everything especially mobsters and kink and she has done it again. While Juliet will always be my favorite because it was Kailee's start this is close up there to my all-time fave. Every book but 1 I believe includes Sal and this is no different. This is all About Sal proving his love for one woman and how he has changed and grown through the years. READ, READ, READ and guess what Read some more.

A fast paced heart pounding book.
With stunning characters.
Who try to right wrongs.
Where things change as quickly as they occur.
Where betrayal and lies run deep.
And bonds are tightened.
The dynamics going on in the story were gripping.
Sal’s world is of love and bleedshed.
Where Ms. Samuels brings her A game.
The author isn’t afraid to give her readers the truth of the universe that Sal and his tribe live in.
