*Release Blitz / Review* Stain by Francette Phal

synopsis

“You’re like the sun…and I’m the stupid moon. Always chasing after you.”

I didn’t know it was possible to fall so deeply into someone. To drown so strongly into their bottomless depths coming up for air was unfathomable. Until he comes along, with his sun-hot radiance, and eclipses the candle that is me. He’s Lucifer before the fall, beautiful but the devil is in the way he looks at me. In the way his touch brands his name across every inch of my skin. His kisses possess my soul in the most sinful of ways.

Maddox Moore is my beginning and my end. Protector, friend, and lover—he’s become my sole religion. At his side I become fearless, in his arms I burn to cinders, and in worshiping him I lose myself and discover the person he sees in me. But nothing is forever. Moments are ephemeral. No matter how much you want something life inevitably reminds you that you can’t have it.

I’m damaged. He’s broken. We’re both covered in stains. Stains that make it impossible for us to hold onto each other.

MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY 18+

reviewStain by Francette Phal is highly addicting. It’s dark, twisted and downright ugly but in all that ugliness there is light and hope hidden deep within. I am in love with all things Maddox! The good, the bad and the very ugly.

Maddox and his twin Noah basically grew up in hell. The man that should’ve been their protector was anything but. Tragedy struck in their lives and Noah seemed to come out of it ok, Maddox on the other hand was completely changed forever. He can’t let go of the cape that is his dirty past. The monster he once lived with as a young boy still has its claws wrapped around him. Suffocating him and seems to have completely changed him forever. He makes his living using people. It’s just a body, no feelings, no attachments. That is….. Until Aylee comes along.

“Why the fuck can’t you be like the rest of them? Why can’t you be another damn body? Why do you have to matter?” ~ Maddox

Aylee too is enduring a horrific life. Adopted, she has no choice but to live in her current situation. Where Maddox’s monster is technically in the past physically, Aylee’s is very much in the here and now. She just wants to survive, so she does what she is told. Aylee is so very strong and it just breaks my heart what she is going through.

Aylee knows Maddox is bad news. Everyone knows he is bad news. But she sees right through him and Maddox knows it. Maddox has a violent temper he just can’t control and he feels like it’s his only outlet. He isn’t a good guy. Aylee has an outlet of her own, but instead of hurting others, it is herself. She is determined to show Maddox that there is more. It’s ok to feel. It’s ok to let go and talk about your past. Sometimes it’s the only way to let go of the demons that are holding you down.

“I see you, Maddox, more clearly than I’ve ever seen anything or anyone in my entire life. And I know it scares you because you can see me, too” ~ Aylee

These two needed each other more than they realized. Together they help each other break free from the Monsters. But, do they make it through unscathed?

I absolutely loved this book. I love Dark, twisted, broken. If you are squeamish, might want to stay away because there are some graphic scenes. I don’t mind that stuff and I think it was perfectly blended into the book and the situations. If you don’t mind a little of that, then dig right in. 5 Stars for Stain!

Please note these stories were inspired by fairy tales, but are contemporary rather than fantasy.
RED & WOLFE:
When Sarah “Red” Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she’s brokenhearted. Worse than that? She’s broke. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.
James Wolfe is not Red’s grandmother – but he’s the only person waiting for her at the boat dock. Red has something he needs. He won’t take “no” for an answer, and he doesn’t mind screwing her over to get it. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he went off the grid. Since then, life is about him – and the renowned oil paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym “W.”
Until the moment he sees her. Then Red is all he wants. And Wolfe will have her – thoroughly.HANSEL:

One boy. Mother calls him Hansel.
One girl. Mother named her Gretel.
Locked in little rooms, in the mountainside mansion of a crazy woman.
Until he saws a hole into the wall dividing them.
Then at least, they have each other’s hands.
It doesn’t end well at Mother’s house. Everything gets…broken.
Ten years later, they meet again in an exclusive Vegas club.
Whips.
Chains.
And most of all, a mask.
What happens to love when it gets twisted?
Fairy tales are cautionary tales, remember?BEAST:

FROM HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY…
At twenty-one years old, third-generation movie star Cal Hammond was on top of the world. He had more money than God and more women than any man could need. But when a night of debauchery ends in tragedy, he forfeits a life of luxury for a ten-year prison sentence at La Rosa, California’s most violent prison.
TO BRUTAL BEAST.
Eight years later, a ruthless, cunning man runs La Rosa from the inside. He is known simply as Beast. All the wardens fear him. All the gangs obey him. He speaks to no one but his inner council. What he says is law.ONLY SHE CAN SAVE HIM.
Annabelle Mitchell’s stepfather is the warden at La Rosa. He deals as dirty as his trustees, and after years of smooth relations with Beast and the gangs he runs, Holt lands on the powerful prisoner’s hit list. That very afternoon, Annabelle pays a surprise visit to La Rosa, hoping to use her new counseling license at a place she thinks she could make a difference. When Beast sees her, he releases the warden and grabs the nameless girl who played a starring role in the worst night of his life. The price for the warden’s error is not death. It’s his precious Belle.

* Red & Wolfe, Hansel, and Beast were originally serials and can still be purchased in that format. They are included here as novel-length stories – a special edition box set for the holidays. (It will probably disappear in early 2016).

* All three stories are erotic. Hansel is darker than the other two.

synopsis

One night. That’s all it was supposed to be.

Blake Thomas’ entire career as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation has led up to this one job: submerging himself in a lifestyle of fast cars and even faster women. He’s deep undercover, building a case to bring down an intricate criminal ring of car thieves in Las Vegas, with no time to think about the one woman he can’t seem to forget. He never imagined his past would become tangled with his present, threatening to be his downfall.

Two years ago, Carly Mathewson planned for a one-night stand with a perfect stranger. What she didn’t count on was being reminded of him every time she looked into the emerald eyes of the daughter they unexpectedly created. Since that night, she’s devoted herself to keeping her life simple. But when her past refuses to stay buried, she’s determined to do everything she can to keep it from jeopardizing what she’s worked so hard to achieve. Suddenly, everything and everyone Carly has known aren’t quite what they seemed.

Every present has a past. Before they can secure a future together, Blake and Carly are forced to admit that their lives are linked by so much more than just that one night. Without warning, they’re bound together for life.

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Goodreads Button with Shadow

synopsis

The New York Times Best Selling author Nashoda Rose is back with the much anticipated story of Kai and London in the Unyielding series.

Kai
There is nothing I care about.
No attachments.
No connections.
Outwardly, I’m a perfect gentleman.
Until my target sees my knife.
I fear nothing, not even death.
In my world, death is considered a privilege.
But my life comes with unbreakable cruel strings and
when I met her, I should’ve walked away.
I didn’t.
I was too selfish.
And that sealed her fate.
Because one week with me led her into the hands of ruin.

London
We all have unique layers that make up who we are.
What makes us vulnerable or strong.
What we fear and what excites us.
But peel back those layers and you’re left naked and exposed.
They did that to me.
Each piece was slowly stripped away then burned.
I merely existed.
But there was one layer they overlooked.
The most important of them all—the tie to one man.
The man responsible for me being this way.
The man who found me.
And the killer who would do anything to protect me.

Perfect Ruin is the dark erotic story of Kai and London.
Their beginning.
And the continuing story of Vault.

Must be read in order:
Perfect Chaos (Unyielding, #1) Deck and Georgie
Perfect Ruin (Unyielding, #2) Kai and London

review

Nashoda Rose continues to blow. me. AWAY.  This is my favorite book of hers to date. Don’t get me wrong, I have loved every single one of her books but something about Kai just draws you in, grabs on and doesn’t let you go.  From page one I was captivated right through till the very end.

Perfect Ruin is Kai and London’s story. We first saw a little glimpse of Kai in Torn from You which was Sculpts story, then got to see even more of him in Perfect Chaos which was Georgie and Deck’s story.  Perfect Chaos must be read before this, however I suggest you just grab them all while you’re at it and do it fast so you can hop on this Perfect roller coaster ride with these characters!

I am drawn to the characters that are twisted, dark, I will even go to saw totally F’d up. Those are the ones that suck me in like a hoover and captivate me.  Now, I don’t always want a twisted complicated man but those are the ones I always fall hard for and fall HARD.

In Perfect Ruin we are taken back to before London became Raven.  When she was young, free and a promising future ahead of her.  Before she got tangled up in a web so well woven there was no possible way to escape.  She had not a clue what her father was involved with and when she did instead of trying to leave, she tries to save.

From a very young age Kai has been trained.  Trained to be loyal, obedient and a killer. He was trained to have no feelings and never get attached to anyone.  He is assigned to watch London’s father, but London also came with it.  While watching and always lurking and learning he was drawn to her.   Getting close and watching is one thing. Getting a taste is another.

This assignment for Kai changed everything.

And from there you are led into Nashoda’s world in Perfect Ruin.  I won’t spoil the book for you.  No need to go into deep into the plot and give you play by plays as the only thing you need to know is it is phenomenal, brilliant, captivating, consuming and utterly PERFECT.

Another home run in a very dark ally for Nashoda Rose!!  Kai’s story is like no other.  He has a special place in my heart forever.  I felt like I took a ride back through every book she has written with these characters so much so it’s time for a re-read.  I’m going back to where it all started.  That is what she does to you.  She makes you want MORE and when there is no more currently available, you run right back to the beginning!  6 Perfect Ruin Stars for this one!
