Those words changed my life, and not for the better.
They were wrong, of course. I wasn’t dead. But I was set up.
After being charged with a string of offences–and made an example of by my political minded father–I’m eventually released back into Shadow Grove with one thing on my mind.
Someone is going to pay for derailing my carefully laid out future. Someone is going to catch the full force of my hate. How very convenient that someone just moved into the bedroom down the hall from me.
Archer D’Ath and his boys messed with the wrong chick and they’re about to learn just how cold Madison Kate’s hate can run.

OMG! JUST OMG! I love Tate James, little bit of a lady crush, she knows it. This book was everything. The silent reverse harem that just sneaks up on you! Madison Kate, what a mouth full of a name, you know she is trouble. After her mother dies on Halloween, the night just isn’t the same for her. Thus, MK finds herself at a MMA underground fight and all hell breaks loose when a shot fires and a girl ends up being killed. Was the bullet for MK though? She looked just like her. I feel bad for MK, there is so much mystery in this book and it’s killing me! Now we have the guys, Kody, Steele, and Archer. They all have their successful lives after the night that changed everything for MK and her reputation is ruined. AND they live with her now! HA! I would be epically pissed off as well. This book has a lot of steam, RH action, and lots of WHYS! Of course we get the cliffhanger and it was soooo good. I almost didn’t want to read this because I knew it would be. I just can’t! Loved it, read it and you will know why!
The words scrawled on the back of my newest stalker mail makes my blood run cold. I have no idea if it’s the lie I know, or one that I don’t.
Since arriving back into Shadow Grove, I’ve been stalked, tormented, chased and almost killed. I’ve been lied to, repeatedly, by people I was growing to trust.
That word haunts me. Someone knows more about my life than I do. Someone is taunting me with answers and teasing me with secrets. Am I desperate enough to fall for more deception?
Archer and his boys made a huge mistake when they lied to me. They thought they could play me but they’re about to learn that they’ve met their match.
No one stabs Madison Kate and gets away with it.

Liar by Tate James! Well you know that there is going to be mystery, drama, and action. This book has everything! It will keep you on your toes while you try to decide for yourself if Kody, Steel, and Archy are good enough to earn MK’s trust back. This book focused at lot more on Steel, who I love btw. The chemistry between Steel and MK is off the charts. Kody is so sweet and has a dark side to him as well. The steam! Right when two of the three boys gets on MK’s good side, NOPE! Blinded by the light…you know the song. Poor MK! She just can’t help but have a trusting heart. You can’t help but just binge this book! Archy is still a moody a**hole who can’t help but toe the line between lust and hate. MK, her pour heart, I just want to reach in and help it pump in the right direction! I’m still out on the verdict that her BFF has something to do with her stalker. MK is still being stalked, the barbies are creepy, there is still a killer out trying to hurt MK, and the three guys just don’t know how to open up. The secrets get even bigger. AH, cliffhanger because Tate James loves to tease us!! Seriously! That ending…..I don’t eve what to say it, but the third book is going to be a trip!
They thought they could get away with it, but they are sorely mistaken.
They have been judged. They have been sentenced. All that remains is their execution.
No one goes unpunished. We’ll make sure of it.
We are The Society and all who dare cross us will find their miserable end by our hand.
Don’t be fooled. This is not their story.
As long as I can remember, I’ve played by the rules.
On and off the football field, I’ve done everything that has been expected of me.
Until that fatal night.
Now my life and the lives of my best friends hang in the balance, hung there by a sadistic sinister shadow forcing us to do their will.
And it’s just my damn luck that I’m the first to be put on their butcher’s block.
I must prove my worth by eradicating a certain pebble in their shoe.
The order is simple.
To save ourselves, I must ruin another—a life for a life.
Meaning Stone Bennett’s life is about to be forfeited in exchange for my own.
The poor girl never stood a chance.
He’s all American perfection.
I’m the poster child for this country’s rejects.
He’s old Asheville money and privilege.
I’m the Southie eyesore people stay clear from.
He’s caviar dreams and champagne wishes.
I’m the trailer trash his momma probably warned him about.
I doubt it can get any further away from the elitist’s social spectrum than the two of us.
So why the hell is Finn Walker, Richfield’s football god, suddenly all in my face wanting my attention?
Nothing good can come from this.
I can feel it.

See No Evil by Ivy Fox: You won’t want to put this book down. Just read it straight through, forget about food, work, everything! So much mystery. We found out through little tidbits that we wouldn’t get the whole story until after book 4, so it’s a little frustrating because there is SO MUCH MYSTERY!
Our main four guys are Lincoln, Colt, Easton and Finn, and we find out at the beginning that they have a secrete that might just tare them apart because that secrete, someone knows about. To keep their secrete hidden they must complete a task, and this time it is Finn’s turn. He must befriend Stone and then ruin her. Why? Who knows, Stone is this kick-butt chick with tatts and a bad (awesome) attitude. She doesn’t care about the money, only getting out of here.
You know how it goes, bad guy wants in, bad girl won’t let him, bad guy falls for bad girl. Then the betrayal. SO many FEELS! Fire, steam, chemistry, just all the things! Throughout the whole book you get a feel for how far the Society can reach, and their arms are LONG! This series is just gearing up to be one of those that you will re-read and keep finding new tells throughout the whole thing! Finn and Stones story might be over for now, but what will happen next?!
Everything changed the night he betrayed me, and now, the game has entered a new level.
Galen did me a favor, reminding me the only person I can count on is myself, and I’m more determined than ever to avenge my father’s death and avoid the destiny Sinner has mapped out for me.
Saint is used to calling the shots, but there are new rules, my rules, and if he wants me in his life, and in his bed, he’ll toe the line. They all will, because I can’t pull this off alone, and they owe me.
Sinner thinks he’s in control, but forcing me into initiation plays right into my hands. War has come to Lowell as rival gangs battle The Sainthood for ultimate power, and I enjoy rebelling from the inside, placing more obstacles in Sinner’s path while I exact my revenge.
But I’m not some innocent thirteen-year-old anymore—I have blood on my hands and lethal enemies on my tail.
I’m playing a dangerous game, especially where my heart is concerned, but there’s no turning back. I haven’t come this far to walk away empty-handed, and the more secrets we uncover, the more we realize how far-reaching the betrayal and corruption extend, and there’s no choice anymore.
The Sainthood must be taken down, and we’re the only ones who can do it.
This is book two of three and it’s not a standalone read. Due to dark themes and content, this #whychoose romance is only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older.
Rebellion starts right up like it was the next page from Resurrection. Harlow is going to have to get herself out of this pickle if she wants to survive. The guys are freaking out and they know they have work to do because of what Galen did. I for sure wouldn’t want to open my heart again, I would think the same way she is, not wanting to trust and felt betrayed by her new lovers. Her broken heart needs to harden! And it does, but for how long? When you have these sexy as sin guys, Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo, and a side of Diesel to rile the guys up, it’s going to be good! Harlow is now off to initiation and we get to see her in action a bit and how her training with Diesel has made her a killing machine. She proves that she is better than even the guys and things will be going her way now. This book has a lot of drama and action for you to read through. The guys are starting to be okay with actually sharing Harlow, but it’s not like they have a choice, they can’t go against her or she will just leave them. HA, like she actually would. Her and Caz, so sexy. She just puts Saint in his place. And oh the sexy scenes! We even get a few scenes from Theo! I love Theo the most. Heartbreaking end and cliffhanger. I was so sad!! Get Book 3, Reign, soon here!

Onto the Interview!
Q: What got you into witting? A:To be perfectly honest with you I couldn’t find anything on the market that sparked my interest in the least bit. So I decided to write something that I was interested in. If it happened to take off then wonderful.
Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: Well that’s honestly a toss-up. I have Aurora series which is shifter paranormal reverse harem that falls on the side of thriller/horror. Then I have Once Upon a Raven that is a Edgar Allan Poe inspired book that is the first of many to come from the Poe inspired series I intend to write.
Q: What got you into writing thriller reverse harem books? A: Reverse harem is fun all by itself. But I tend to like my horror movies thriller action movies things of that nature so I brought that love and passion into my stories.
Q: What is your favorite character from your books? A: I’d have to say that Alaric and Jayce are my favorites from Aurora series. And Kol is my favorite from the Raven.
Q: How did you come up with the characters from the series? A: It honestly wasn’t that difficult. Aurora is basically me with none of the human restraints upon her. I took some of my favorite qualities that I thought were embodied by a specific animal and gave them to each of the mates.
Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing? A: Honestly, It’s staying focused, and ignoring those that decide to nick pick and rip a book apart instead of enjoying it for what it is..
Q: About writing reverse harem? A: That’s actually a funny answer It’s more like when you have intimate moments with more than one mate in a scene. Keeping track of where all the limbs and appendages are and making sure that nothing is misplaced.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration to write supernatural/shifter books? A: As i said earlier I absolutely love horror movies. I grew up watching some of the old favorite black and white movies all the way up to current day.
Q: Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing? A: Definitely find a good editor and proofreader for your novel. Do not trust and editing program to handle your document the same as a human would. A program cannot and will not ever understand how an emotion needs to be portrayed.
Q: What is your favorite writing spot? A: Usually I’m sitting on my bed. or or I’m going for a long walk and using my dictation program.
Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: I’m not a big fan of being around large groups of people. So anywhere that I can isolate and just enjoy myself is perfect vacation spot for me.
Q: What is your favorite food? A: I love extremely rare steak. I love sushi and sashimi. I love all sorts of Japanese and Indian cuisine. And I also enjoy cooking traditional German or Italian dishes.
Q: What is coming next from you? A:There’s actually a lot on the table currently. Just finished up book one of Hybrid Royals. Working on book five of Aurora’s series Welcome Home Little Wolf. After that I am probably going to be working on Jayce’s daughters series and my Bear Claw Ranch series that will feature two of Dimitri’s daughters and Ellis. I also have a Valkyrie series slated for 2021. There’s also a reverse harem vampire novel that I have outlined. There’s also going to be a three book series with Klaus’s daughter that will be reverse harem. There’s several other things that are in the works in the background The hybrid royal series is going to be four books when it’s completed and then there’s another four book series that is on the back burner currently.
Those manipulative a-holes set out to ruin me after our hot night together, but they didn’t realize you can’t destroy something that’s already broken. And it only works if the victim cares.
Which I don’t.
Because I’ve been in hell for years, and nothing penetrates the steel walls I’ve erected.
Until The Sainthood decides I belong to them and cracks appear in my veneer. Their cruel games, harsh words, and rough touch awakens something inside me, and now, I’m in trouble.
They draw me deeper into their dangerous world, until I’m in the middle of all the violence and gang warfare, tangled up in all the secrets and lies, and there’s no turning back.
Because they own me.
And nothing has ever felt so right.
I’m exactly where I should be.
But with enemies on all sides, survival becomes a deadly game with no guarantees.
And, sometimes, saints become sinners.
Due to mature content, this book is recommended to readers aged eighteen and over. This is a full-length 95k-word dark romance #whychoose novel with enemies-to-lovers/bullying themes. Please read the note at the start of the book. Cannot be read as a standalone and ends with a cliffhanger. Book 1 of 3.
Resurrection: A Dark High School Romance (The Sainthood – Boys of Lowell High Book 1) by Siobhan Davis. This was a crazy bully romance! Right off the bat its a fast burn with a 5-way! Harlow gets the devastating news that her father has died and then walks right in on her boyfriend cheating on her! Way to start out a book Siobhan! Harlow is also out for vengeance. I love that she kicks-ass for a living and can fight for herself. No more meek MC’s for us! Diesel is her trainer and we definitely see some chemistry between the teacher and the student. Then, we come and find that Harlow must now live with these 4 sexy as sin Sainthood members, Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo, who just happen to be the same guys she had a 5-way with! Her mom, Giana, is getting re-married to the president of the Sainthood and along with him he brings these 4 boys to live with and go to school with Harlow! The hurt just keeps on piling up. Harlow must now look at her tormentor from when she was kidnapped. She grew from that experience, but to look at him everyday and to keep a sin face, NOPE! This book has so much drama, angst, bullying, it really has it all for us.
Harlow wants to take her vengeance and she will by infiltrating the Sainthood and getting these guys under her thumb. She wants to take it down from the inside and make them pay. The Sainthood is like the Mafia. They have chapters and presidents and lots of people to get through to the top. Throughout the book, though it’s not easy, Saint is very possessive and even though they share girls, he doesn’t seem like he wants to, he wants Harlow for himself. Caz is the funny, sexy brute that you just want to see Harlow and him keep hooking up. They are the pranksters. Theo is the shy, nerdy guy who has a past history with Harlow. They loved each other, they were their everything, until he turned on her. Galen is the mystery guy. They seem to be getting along and have some chemistry brewing. Harlow doesn’t want her heart broken but no one ever does, and she goes and falls for these sexy guys. I would totally fall for them also, especially Theo, he seems like my type of guy. The cliffhanger isn’t so bad because you have the second book right away 🙂 but it is still a good one! Galen just surprises us and the WTF moment happens.
Two years ago, a split-second decision changed everything. I risked my life for a man I didn’t even know and nearly died for it.
I’ve tried to forget him. To forget that whole night.
But he hasn’t forgotten me. He’s been watching. Obsessing. Craving.
And when he crashes back into my life like a wrecking ball, accompanied by two dark shadows—men he calls his brothers—the life I’ve been trying to rebuild for myself shatters into a thousand sharp-edged pieces.
He believes our souls are bound by blood, and he’s come back to claim what’s his.
Two years ago, I saved Marcus Constantine’s life.
Now I wish I hadn’t.
This is the first book in the Ruthless Games series, a new adult reverse harem romance. It contains bully elements, sexual situations, violence, and dark subject matter. Please venture between these pages at your own discretion.
Sweet Obsession is part of a series and is NOT a standalone.
Well I always love Callie Rose and her amazinness, and this new book. Sweet Obsession, just proves that. This book is EVERYTHING! I love that our MC has a little bit of a disability that doesn’t hinder her at all. She owns it and everything that is thrown at her. There are so many twists that I just weren’t expecting but loved.
Ryland, Marcus, Theo & Ayla are some characters that you will def. need to get to know! And not everyone loves are sweet-kick-butt Ayla either. I like it when a main guy doesn’t like the MC at first and fights the whole way. This book holds a lot of secrets and a stalker mentality. But Ayla doesn’t let the nightclub incident hold her back. She learned from it and it made her a stronger person. Maybe a more standoffish person, but who doesn’t like a good MC who can literally kick your ass in a sparring match?
Ayla has had a troubled past being bounced around the system and we get bits and pieces of what happened with her adopted family but not the whole story. We know that she lives alone and in comes the bully queen who is jealous that she was adopted over her and it looks like she will make her life hell because of it. And OH DOES she ever! So much mystery and drama!
So hot! And the scenes! I give this a 5 out of 5 on my sizzle factor!!! So Hot! But the cliffhanger, of course…drama, drama, drama! BOOO! Can’t wait! Sorry for excessive !!!!….it’s just that good 😀
We had the pleasure of asking K. Webster some questions for our Author Spotlight! If you don’t know, K. Webster is my queen of Taboo writing and writes some amazing taboo, standalone books and even some great series! These books are usually darker and definitely on the taboo side.
On too the questions!
Q: What got you into writing? A: I always loved reading and wanted to write a book, but felt intimidated by the process. It wasn’t until I went to a book signing for a few favorite authors and went with a friend that I realized maybe this wasn’t such a pipe dream after all. My friend (who wasn’t even close to being as big of a book nerd as I am) told me she was self-publishing a book. I was so blown away and thought, “If she can do it, I most definitely can.” I came back home, incredibly inspired, and ten days later I had my first book! Been tapping away ever since.
Q:What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: I think I’d have to say the War & Peace series. I loved delving into the dark, psychological elements of that series!
Q: Why write taboo stories vs others? A: I love those awkward, face-burning moments when I read taboo stories…so, naturally, I like to make my readers feel just as awkward as me.
Q:What is your favorite character from your books? A: Benny from Pretty Stolen Dolls. He’s so multi-dimensional and psychotic and broken. I just love him.
Q:What is the most difficult thing about writing?About writing taboo? A: I think the most difficult aspect is swallowing the pill that not everyone is going to like it, and some may even hate it passionately. You have to be ready to accept negativity about what you write. It’s something I’ve had to learn along the way…to let those things roll off me and keep on moving forward.
Q:Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing or transverse into the taboo subjects? A: I think if they’re looking to write taboo, they should read taboo. I think reading always helps shape and mold us as authors. Reading is one of my biggest tools. It helps me learn.
What is your favorite writing spot? A: My favorite writing spot is my recliner and I will NOT write anywhere but there.
What is your favorite vacation spot? A: My favorite vacation spot is the beach (Gulf Shores, Alabama) because it’s so peaceful and relaxing and warm.
What is your favorite food? A: My favorite food is probably meatloaf and I’m obsessed with coffee.
What is coming next from you? A: As far as what’s next….ALLLLL the things! I have so many things coming up! In the nearer future, I have The Free (a taboo story for those familiar with The Wild world) and Hood River Rat (a bully romance) which will be available in the Bully Me anthology. Then, not long after that, I have Cocksure Ace which is a funny and sexy story about a cocky pilot and a sassy heroine which is an enemies-to-lovers romance.
Thank you again, K. Webster for answering our questions and helping us dive into the realm of dark romances and taboo series! Benny was definitely a surprise for us and we hope everyone enjoys his craziness as much as (Jacq) did! Let us know what you think below!
This book is MMF. The starting of this book will get you hot and bothered. Is it a MM romance? Is it a cheating romance? Is it a professor-teacher romance? It is alllll of the above! The scene in the in the professors office with our MC, OMG sooo hot! And then when the twist happens. NO Spoilers here…yet. 😉
Well if you are looking for a mafia romance this series is for you. All books are standalone but should be read in order to understand the story. You think you have it easy? Try leaving with a family that literally has a game where your life is your value. Your lively hood is based off how well you can do in this came and if you win your own bounty, freedom? YES! Just yes, I loved this series. Heartbeat, drama, ugly cry!
This standalone is a trick! Right off the bat, you don’t know who you are dealing with, this book deals with some mental heath issues. Without any spoilers…this book has MANY characters that you will love and hate and then think, WTF just happened! The ending I am still trying to wrap my head around, but it was worth it. Yup, add to your TBR!
So here comes a taboo story. Girl is 18, coach is..well coach lol. She doesn’t mean to seduce him, she really wants to just be a student and get over with the year. This short read is perfect for the teacher-student romance. The shower scene after track practice, just go read that. I say just a lot. JUST DO IT! Taboo, ready, amazing. YES!
You can find my review of Pretty Stolen Dolls here. This series is so dark romance and the perfect serial killer, some Stockholm syndrome, taboo, soo dark romance. The whole series just makes you think and wonder what is going to happen next!
From Bestselling Authors Ker Dukey & K Webster comes, Pretty Stolen Dolls.
Benny loves his pretty little dolls. As long as they do exactly as they’re told. He keeps them perfect by brushing their hair and gives them pretty dresses to wear. He likes to toy with them late at night. One so timid but the other likes to fight. When his favorite doll runs away… despite the other doll promising to stay, his heart becomes broken and he can’t help but cry. He wants her back home or his pretty little doll must die.
Have you ever had to make a decision that haunts you every single day for the rest of your life…the life you stole back? I have. I ran for my survival, rocks and twigs cutting into the soles of my feet, my lungs burning and screaming for rest, every muscle tensed and fighting along with me for existence. I left her. I ran, ran, ran—from Benny and his lone, pretty little doll—until I couldn’t remember where to find them again. I’m sorry.
Pretty Stolen Dolls by K. Webster & Ker Dukey, holy yes! This book is a dark romance, as in dark, dark. Not for the faint of heart and may cause some triggers for people. Lots of mystery and suspense in this book.Very creepy because you get some POV’s that you don’t know who they are of but you have a good guess. BUT you’ll be wrong! This is not a standalone and a series. Yay for more psychological thrillers! I loved this book/series. K. Webster knows how to write the dark scenes and taboo series.
A serial killer, a detective, a lost sister, this book is just dark. Jade and Macy Phillips aren’t like most teens. Nope, they grow up in cells, taken by a man named Benjamin, “Benny”. Benny loves to dress up his dolls. He loves to make them pretty. He has taken them while they are at a fair looking at dolls. Their father warned them of the monsters of the world, maybe they should have paid attention better. Little do they know the man who is selling the dolls is going to take them away from everything. K. Webster wrote very well in-depth scenes that painted a pretty picture for the readers.
Jade escapes but can’t get her sister out at the same time. How heartbreaking would it be to have to leave your sister in hopes that you will return to save her? The book jumps to 8 years later and Jade is a detective just trying to find a lead on her sister and their case. Jade has a killer (not stabby, stabby) personality that throws her attitude towards anyone and everyone. Not the meek type here ladies! She is obsessed with finding her sister and looking for fairs where she can find Benny and his dolls again. Amazing character development and emotions from the characters and story-line.
Jade and Dillion, her partner (in more than one way) are a duo-dynamic. Their storyline is so hot and has so much drama/thrills. Dillion comes off at a jerk at first but soon worms his way into Jade. She opens up to him, in more than one way, and he starts to believe her more and more. Dillion is obviously the overbearing partner *cough* boyfriend material*cough*. As the book progresses it looks like Jade is spiraling because of the new gory killings that are happening and she is positive that Benny is behind them and is out to get her back into his collection. With no one believing her, it looks like she will dive off the deep end. The first book does end in a cliffhanger. But no cliffhanger hangovers for you!
Ahh this book was so dark and twisted! I loved it. If you need a good dark romance with some gore, violence, bad language then this is the book for you. The series is complete and is all on Kindle Unlimited. Thanks K. Webster! Lovvved all your work!
Rich and privileged. Gorgeous and cruel. The poster boys for rebellion…their tongues so sharp they cut to the bone.
We worshipped them despite their dangerous games. We laughed even as we cried. It was all fun and games until the first dirty girl died.
Now, as the bodies pile up, I believe I can endure their wicked ways. Only time will tell if I’ll escape.
Because when wealthy boys are accustomed to getting everything they want, not even the lives of those around them are too high an asking price.
Dirty Girls by Lily White is helping with my fascination with serial killers apparently. This is a murder, mystery, romance that makes you want to shake Olive half the time! After their parents death, Nolan drops out of school to raise Olive. He’s being selfless and putting her education in front of his own dreams but then Soren comes back into the picture.
Ah Soren. The hot guy that every one wants to be and every girl wants to bang. He is the center of attention and runs the pledges. When he is released from prison that is exactly what he plans to do. But who would want to pledge and do the things these guys make them do?! Ahh young people, I don’t understand them.
Olive doesn’t want to be a part of the in-crowd. She just so happened to sleep with Soren before he went away and doesn’t want to be a part of him anymore. But Soren has other plans for little Olly. He plans to rule her every moment all while girls are being killed around them.
I wouldn’t consider this book a trigger but some of the killings are detailed and might be disturbing for some people.
When Olive decides she’s old enough to be an adult, Nolan disappears and we don’t know if he is dead or alive. Apparently he’s fine even though he won’t answer Olives desperate attempts to hear from him. If I were Olive, I would have left and just said screw it and left, no reason to stay. Olive is a little meek and just wants to be left alone, but at the same time, she wants Soren.
I felt like the ending was a little rushed but overall really enjoyed the book. Olive is pushed to her limit while thinking she is being kidnapped. We find out who the serial killer is but I wish that scene had played out more. It was just an after thought and the book wrapped up. I enjoyed the ending but was a little disappointed after all that anticipation.
