Behind the doors of the House of Sin, no one is ever safe…

I love him. It’s the only truth that matters now.

I’ve cast my old life aside and given myself fully to his wants and desires, to the fire he alone ignites inside me. And together, we’ve found strength and salvation in each other.

But there are evil forces, people who see me as a threat that must be undone. I trust that our love can withstand any test, but I can’t ignore the growing shadows lurking beyond our door.

Because I understand now that those shadows are not waiting to destroy me as I once feared. They’ve come for him. To steal him away from me for good. And to finally and completely engulf him in a sinister world he’s eluded for so long.

In the inescapable darkness of the House of Sin…

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So you have to read the first two books Forbidden and Deceived before you read this book. Undone starts off exactly where Deceived ends. Natalie has been taken and finds herself locked up. Luc is with his family and we have no idea what is going to happen to him, we just know that it will be bad.

This book made me mad, cry, and want to through my kindle across the room. I tried to go to sleep and had to go back to it. I had to know what Luc was going to do about his horrible family and if he and Natalie were going to make it through. By the time I was done with it, I had a tissue in my hand and it was 2 a.m.

I am so happy to have read this series. Yes, these series are hard to read and the people in them are horrible people. But in the main point of these books to me where that love can conquer all and that no matter what together you can defeat everything.

Deceived

Some doors were never meant to be opened…

I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world.

But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I thought I loved. The man I once foolishly trusted. The man who, despite his lies and deception, I continue to crave.

He can melt my resolve with one rough, whispered demand, and I feel myself giving in to the desire he still stirs inside me. And yet, if I want to survive, I must find a way to escape. Because if I don’t, I’m afraid I’ll be consumed by a shadowy world that will ultimately destroy me.

Lost forever in his wicked House of Sin…

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
This is the second book of The House of Sin series. You have to read the first book Forbidden
 
Deceived is well titled for this book. We kind of start back where we were in the last book. Natalie is waking up from being drugged and is trying to figure out what the heck Luc has done to her. Needless to say, she is not at all happy when she finds out what has happened while she was out.
 
Luc has done some things he is not happy to have done to keep Natalie alive and hopefully safe from his family. He is doing everything he can to make her submissive to him and the families. But he soon learns that she never will be that way. These two have to come to terms with their new lives and become a team or they will both die.
 
This book is full of emotions, betrayal, friendship, broken promises, and love. Man, I loved it. This is one of those books where you are so afraid to read it because you have no idea where you will end up. And when you start reading it you can not put it down. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review. I am so excited to read the next book!

Forbidden

by Elisabeth Naughton

Publication Date: April 24, 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Purchase: Amazon Barnes & Noble Kobo iBooks

She has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin…

He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist.

I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma.

I know he is a threat. He’s entwined in a dangerous world I don’t understand. But that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips.

Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked.

I need to discover what he’s hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin…

**WARNING!**

This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Contains consensual kink and a dark and dominant hero with a dangerous secret.

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
This is my first Elisabeth Naughton story and I LOVED it. I love darker books with a hint of mystery and this one has it. Luc is an enigma that I can’t figure out yet. He is the soon to be head of his family The Salvatici Family. He doesn’t want to be, he hates his family and wants out. But sees no way to make that happen. His brothers are harder and meaner than him but he is the oldest and so will take on as the head of the family.
 
When Natalie James walks in for a job he knows there is something off and tells her no. But his brother Gio finds that he wants her. So Natalie finds herself in the middle of the Salvatici family.
 
The thing I love the most about this book is you have NO IDEA what the hell is going on with this family. I mean you think you do, because the modeling and females coming and going, so you go straight to human trafficking, but once you start reading and get more into it, you find there is so much more into this family. And why Luc is so damn scared of his father.
 
Natalie is the idea of what Luc wants if his life would have been different. He has done everything he could to keep her away from his life but no matter what he did, she wouldn’t leave. I loved that about her. She is strong, stubborn, sexy, and just what Luc needs in his life.
 
I am so excited to see what is next in this series. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Title: King of Hearts

His secrets. Her sanity

 The road to hell…

Well, there is no road to hell.
I already live there.

I was forced to partake in a rigged game of seduction, manipulation, and murder.

Mateo Remmington is my formidable opponent.

He makes the devil look like a saint.

He’s immoral.
He’s ruthless.
He’s a goddamn king. 

King of a clandestine empire who sits on a throne covered in innocents’ blood.

I’ve become his obsession.
He’s becoming my deadly addiction.

And if I make one wrong move he’ll end my life.

REVIEW⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Oh man, just when you think you have this book kind of figured out Natalie throws you more twisted and turns. You have to read the first book Queen of Diamonds first, if you don’t you will be extremely confused.

Elena is meant to be Mateo’s Queen and he will do everything in his power to make that happen. This book will show you just how far he will go. Be prepared for sex, gore, drugs, mystery, and secret boxes. I couldn’t put this book down. And I can’t wait for the next book Ace of Spades.

 

REVIEW

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
 
So we are starting the newest Natalie Bennett series and first off is Queen of Diamonds. This book is a prequel (ish) story that gives us the start of Mateo (the kingpin) and Elena the girl who has been away from Vice City most of her life.
 
Elena’s parents didn’t want her or her sister to be part of their world. So they shipped them off, but that couldn’t save them. So Elena and her sister are left to raise themselves with their aunt. But when Elena’s sister is murdered she decides it is time to go back to Vice City and see what she can find out.
 
Mateo is dark, everything he does is to stay on top. He is the King and he wants a Queen. Elena is the person he wants and he will get her any way he can. But what is the game here? Only Mateo seems to know what they are playing and he will win at any cost.
 
I am so excited to read this series, and what a start to it. But head the trigger warnings, this is not a nice romance. This is a dark and disturbing read and I am sure it will only get more so.
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don’t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA’s.

When she isn’t in front of her computer she’s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.

Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.

You can find Natalie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
