{New Release &Review} BEAST by A.Zavarelli



















Beast by A. Zavarelli 

Genre: Dark Romance 
Series: Twisted Ever After #1 
A standalone with HEA


Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales.
But then he took me.

And he taught me that life isn’t a fairytale.

He is scarred. Broken.
A dark and wild thing.

His beauty is violent and his words are cruel.
His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow.
He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.

He’s destroyed my life.
Tortured me.
And worse…
He’s trained me to beg for his affection.

This prison is a place where sunlight doesn’t reach.
He taught me that hate is born in darkness.
And then he taught me that sometimes love is too.

BY SHABBY SHABNAMARORA

Now I know why the Caged Bird Sings

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.


Isabella Rossi has been caged
By her talent and then by her father and then by her abductor -Javier Castillo 
I don't wanna give away the story. 
It's a major,dark twist to the Beauty And The Beast. 
It's a Perfect Storm Of Circumstances!
The first 50% of the story moves very , very slowly
It spikes in speed and like a box thrown down the stairs somersault a lot. 
There's three parallel tracks running .
Love
Revenge 
Betrayal
The story has darker elements that can act as triggers. 
They didn't bother me though.
Too Mild for me.
The only botheration was single sentence format.
That annoyed me a lot
The plot was very attractive , very John Le Carrè. 
In fact the last 20% of the story actually made me draft my review
Now the feels 
The mood was grim , dark and hopeless. 
In the first half I had trouble connecting. 
The latter half I latched on and it became interesting 
River's character was most surprising . 
Although had a very hard-to-believe twist.
I loved the ending .
Almost gave me a heart attack 
TWICE!!!
Hope you get the irony :p
4 Stars

****Please read the warning…. if you are not into dark books, this book IS NOT for you****
What a take on Beauty and the Beast!! While the thought is the same the story is totally different! 

Isabelle is a rising superstar in the music industry. This time of her life should be full of happiness and rewards. Till the day Javi she finally meets Javi.

Javi is a BEAST! Living the life of HELL. But he has set his eyes on the one who he hears singing only for him. 

When the two Belle and Beast get together, its dark. 

The last 20-25% of the book was the best. It explains a lot. But you must get there first before learning some important information. 


While I stayed engrossed in this book from page 1 to the last, the writing style of this book drove me bonkers. Single Sentence format. I couldn’t get over it. 
There are many unanswered questions for me. Even after processing the book for a couple days, I continue to think of more.

{Cover Reveal } GRUNT by Kailee Reese Samuels

Title: Grunt
Series: SOS
Author: Kailee Reese Samuels
Genre: Dark Erotic Suspense
Release Date: May 30, 2017


Six days.
No one thought I could last
Here in the cell—I now call home
They didn’t know I grew up in the prison of my crime family’s dream.
Six weeks.
No one thought I could withstand
The loss, the drugs, the torture 
They didn’t know how much I would enjoy their game.
Six months.
No one thought I could survive 
Their puppet and prey—but I like to play—Hard.
And I don’t lose.
They picked the wrong guy. Their so-called ‘grunt’ would fight to get home and take revenge. I vowed to come back—for her—for Kaci. But everything changed.
My maniacal mind wrapped with a pretty mug, I am an unforgiving opponent, tough—tougher than they ever imagined.
And I will never – ever – break.

AP new - synopsis.jpg



Soren Decker. He’s the epitome of the “bad boy, good man” persona. The best of both worlds. The worst of them too. He’s the type of guy most girls would not mind sharing a confined space with, except my new roommate isn’t all swagger and chiseled abs.

He’s bossy. Messy. Cocky. Infuriating. Doesn’t believe in personal space. Has no qualms about roaming the apartment with a loincloth-sized towel cinched around his waist. Seems under the delusion he’s my personal protector (refer back to infuriating). He plays college baseball and holds down a part-time job—I don’t know where he finds the time to get on my nerves.


We’re got nothing in common . . . except for one thing. Our attraction to one another. And in six hundred square feet of shared space, the tension only has so much room to grow before one of us gives in to temptation. But really, what chance do a couple of young kids chasing their dreams in the big city have of making it?

Since Soren claims I know squat about sports (he might have a semi-point), here’s a stat for him—one in a million. That’s our odds.
