It will end the same way it started … with death.


I gave Braxton Smalls everything. I sacrificed myself and all I ended up with was a broken heart and a shattered soul. Now, I’ve got bigger things to worry about than an angry Eastpoint Heir hot on my trail.

Brax may be the psycho who kidnapped me–but he’s nothing compared to the organization my brother works for.

And me

It’s no secret that my love for the Sick Boys runs deep but I gotta say, @authorlucysmoke really outdid herself with the second part of Brax’s duet - Bloody Cruel Monster!

Clover is in the hands of the enemy, blood has been shed, and their only hope at saving her comes in the form of an enemy. That seemed to be a theme I really enjoyed - putting aside past differences to unite against a common enemy.

This was one hell of a roller coaster, but the shining star was the dynamic between Brax and Clov

I’ve been waiting for part 2 of Brax and Clover’s story for months. Brax may be the darkest, craziest and most dangerous of all the Sick Boys. These two are a perfect match made in He**. They’re both fearless, hard headed, dark and perfect for one another. I loved how these two did not come together willingly, but deep down, both knew from day one they belonged to the other. This book was filled with darkness, angst and heart pounding suspense. I knew these two wouldn’t get their HEA without a w ...more

Lucy has done it again! She continues to amaze me with each book she puts out, no matter the series. This series, The Sick Boys series continues to be one of my all time favorites by her. Each book of this series is a bloody and dark themed bully romance that I continue to LOVE!! The characters continue to grow and become better with each story, I love that she builds all of her characters into the stories even when the focus is on a different main character. This story is Brax and Clovers “sequ ...more

“I wanna be inside, sink into her depths, fuck until she cries or bleeds or both.”

“My pussy doesn’t understand that we shouldn’t want the monster that stands behind us like a violent knight in blackened armor ready to defend us and break the bones of anyone who dares to touch us.”

Clover escapes Brax and returns to the scene of his original crime. His betrayal stings deep, and her rage is unbridled. Now, the Undead have found her. In rival territory, she’s once again at a disadvantage.

I'm kind of conflicted, so we'll say 3.5 rounded up to 4? Stars are meaningless so this is gonna be word vomit but YOLO.

So like, I liked this. I liked it way more than the first book in this duology, but I don't know, there was still something missing. It felt like a lot of telling me things? And not enough showing? Like, I was told repeatedly how obsessed Brax was with Clover, and I was told repeatedly how deep their connection went, but I never .....saw it. I still don't buy their relationship

Bloody Cruel Monster is the sixth book in the Sick Boys series and the second half of Brax and Clover's story. You don't have to have read the first four books but I highly recommend it b/c they are all amazing. You do absolutely have to have read Bloody Cruel Psycho though.

So in BCM, we pick up where we left off in BCP. Brax is on a mission to get back what is his. He underestimates our little Clover though. She doesn't need someone to come save her. The only thing she has ever NEEDED was some

This is the second book in Clover and Brax's story, read previous book first. This series world-building is mind-blowing, I love it so much, this Sick boys have stolen my heart, I really enjoyed Clover and Brax's story, all the twist and turns had me hooked and didn't let me go until the end. Now I need more answers to the more questions I have. So good, just be aware of the triggers if you have any, this series might not be up for you. Otherwise I'm sure you are going to love the ride.

There is alot to unpack with this book but wow it was spectacular.

The suspense and the intensity was amazing and really well done!

Braxton and Clover have had a rough start, the connection they are both intensely fighting is real no matter how much they don't want to believe it.

These two are like yin and yang, they balance each other out so well.

There is so much going on with this crew, it was refreshing to see Dean and Ava haven't changed, like at all. Abel and Rylie too for that matter. I k

I’ve been eagerly anticipating this conclusion to Brax and Clover’s story and it did not disappoint. Clover has got to be my favorite FMC in a long time. I love everything about her. Her grit, her strength, her beauty, nd her brokenness. All of it. She and Brax together are fire. I love how this story incorporates everything that’s happened in the Sick Boys series so flawlessly. We finally put a face to the Undead and the story takes off from there. So many questions were answered, characters re ...more

Bloody Cruel Monster picks up where the previous book left us, with Clover having been kidnapped but an unknown. Clover ran from Braxton because he broke his promise to her and although Braxton may be hot on her tail, Clover has bigger things to worry about. Braxton may be the psycho Eastpoint heir but he’s nothing compared to the organisation that her brother Ace works for. The Undead want to recruit Clover but she would rather die than be locked in a prison o

OMG! This was everything I have been waiting for when it comes to the continuation of Brax and Clover’s crazy story. It was one hell of a dark and twisted rollercoaster ride that had me completely and utterly engrossed with it. I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails with anticipation of every twisted turn their story takes, and holding my breath hoping that they would get their happy ever after or something close to it.

I loved all of the sexual tension between Brax and Clover, it was so

Bang! Just a big massive freaking bang is how Lucy Smoke finished Braxtons duet!!!

We have known throughout the Sick Boys Series - which I highly recommend you go back and read!! But yes, throughout the series, we have known Braxton has been the quiet psychopath, he's cruel, twisted, unfeeling, blank and oh so hot!!

On his mission to avenge what happened to Avalon, he tracks down Clover who he is to use as bait. Which is all in book 1, but here?

This is the 6th book in the Sick Boys Series, and boy oh boy is it a good one! I have seriously been hooked on this dark and intriguing series since book one, but seem to only get more obsessed with each book.

I honestly cannot pick one or two things that I love most about this book, because I loved it all. The storyline, the characters, the intrigue, the suspense, the character and relationship development, the world building, the s*xiness! I loved all that and so much more!

When Clover is taken by the organization Braxton will stop at nothing to find her and keep her by his side. Clover is a survivor and can handle herself, she doesn’t just lay down and play dead she kicks a$$ and keeps moving forward.

Pain and pleasure, love and hate, night and day. They say opposites attract but with Braxton and Clover these two are the one and the same. Two halves that make up a whole lot of havoc.

Revenge, vengeance, sadness and forgiveness are the emotions you feel as the page

Dark, depraved and absolutely delicious!

Starting this off by saying if you’re here you have read book one- if not go do that now and then come back. Please be aware this book is dark, it definitely deals with subjects that will be triggering to some readers, but if you’re familiar with this author it’s no surprise and I am here for every sentence.

These two are so freaking good together. I loved watching Clover embrace who she is- this girl gives Avalon a run for her money and I loved it. Braxt

This was an absolute amazing way to end Clover and Brax story. I truly didn’t want it to end, so I drew out my readings. I have never done that before. I loved this world, the characters, and the writing.

I don't think I was wholly prepared for the epic conclusion to the original three Sick Boys. A series that has been a top read for me since the beginning and likely will as we continue to get more from this world. Braxton and Clover are a match made in hell even if they had to fight (both themselves and outside enemies) to get there. Bloody Cruel Monster was everything I've loved out of the Sick Boys Series. It has violence and explosions, some very hot steamy moments, and a whole lot of connect ...more

The second instalment in Brax and Clovers story was awesome.
I love when Brax knows hes lost her, then he finds where she is only to lose her again, then to fine her and get her to safety only to lose her to the enemy AGAIN. Gives you all those "ill burn the whole world down for her" vibes.
I always figured Avalon's old friend Micki was Lucs missing girl and i love how thats going to tie them all back together in the end. She was in the first book and her story will be told in the last... and I

Lucy never fails to deliver on the dark romance homefront with the Sick Boys series. Bloody Cruel Monster is the final installment of Braxton and Clover's story.

This story will grab you by the collar and have your complete attention the entire time. I love Lucy's writing, as it will immerse you into their world with the rich details.

As we know from previous books, Braxton is rather unhinged and we love those types of characters, don't we? In reality, it would be a red flag. However, in a book, w

This was as dark and twisted as I had hoped it would be.

Brax is fearless, hard-headed, holding so much rage and hurt, and all of this is so perfectly mirrored in Clover. They are just as messed up as the other, and you can truly feel their connection jumping off the page. While I will ALWAYS love Dean and Avalon… Brax and Clover are without a doubt my favourite couple of the series. They just fit together so well and from day one, even with the situation that brought them together, you could fee

What a conclusion to Clover and Braxton's story! This was dark, twisted and seriously hot & steamy.......just what i have come to expect from Lucy's writing.
Braxton is dark, deadly and probably the most depraved of the sick boys, yet Clover is so crazy and stubborn she actually suits him perfectly. I loved how she put Brax through the ringer before she forgave him and how we see a different side to him as he fights to get her back! The plot had it all and kept me hooked from start to finish! As

Bloody Cruel Monster by Lucy Smoke is book 6 in the Sick Boys Series. This continues the story of Clover La Roux and Braxton Smalls. So you will need to at least read the previous book 'Bloody Cruel Psycho' before starting this one. I do think it added to my enjoyment to read the series as a whole too but at the very least read the previous book. This book and series is a dark read so do remember to be aware if you have issues with dark reads. I really enjoyed this series and this book just adde ...more

This book was an amazing read that sucked me in and kept me reading until the end. It moves along at a speed which is perfect for the flow of the story. It has interesting characters that you will love and you want to be there for them and a story that will keep you reading no matter what. This book needs to be on your TBR list, no doubt about it.

Do you want a good kind of psycho? Brax and Clover have one hell of a dynamic. What does he do when she gets taken? He looks towards his enemy. A little bit something good always comes out of a little bit something bad.

Oh, I think Brax and Clover just might be my new favorite Sick Boys couple!!! This book is so so so good!!! This book picks up straight from where book 1 in the duet ended. Clover is so many things. I love her!! She is a badass!!! She fits perfectly in the Sick Boys world. Brax had no idea what he is getting himself into. But I loved going along the journey with him. Seeing him go through all the emotions. The story line in the Sick Boys world never disappoints. And I can’t wait for the next one ...more

Have you ever read a book that leaves you overwhelmed and wanting more? This book did that to me. Way to go Ms. Smoke. I have read this series from the beginning and it just keeps getting better. You HAVE to start the series with Pretty Little Savage because the storyline continues and the characters interconnect. I have loved all of the men in this series but Braxton intrigued me. He was and is an enigma. I had so many questions and this duet answered them all and gave me so much mo

“We’re no heroes. We know that. We accept it.”

This conclusion was everything dark, beautiful, and unexpected. Emotions everywhere, at all times. It’s an adrenaline rush that you never want to end.

These two are un-fucking-believably AMAZING!! They speak directly to my little black heart and those deep crevices of my gray soul. They’re both vicious and beautiful and know each other’s language like no other, which is insanely tantalizing.

My Gawd, Lucy KILLED it with Brax and Clover!

“I smile, and for the first time in a long time, I send thanks to Mama Luda’s God. My smile slowly turns into a chuckle as he continues to stare at me, uncomprehending. I shake my head. “I’m well aware that my father is dead,” I tell him. “I wasn’t talking about Ivan or Ace. I was talking about someone much worse.” “Who could be worse than the Undead?” he muses, seeming entertained by my apparent confidence. My smile widens. “My own brand of Heaven and Hell,” I tell him honestly. “The Undead aren’t nearly as cruel as the living, and he’ll be coming soon.” I know my man. He’ll always come.” 0 likes
