Book Review

Dead Man Walking

Chaos. Carnage. Killing.

The three C’s that make my life complete.

I know killing technically doesn’t start with a C – but wouldn’t life be better if it did? Just like it would be better if the Devil was my boyfriend, Santa wasn’t a d*ck and I didn’t live under a bridge.

I wished for my life to improve, but it didn’t. I was kidnapped, sold, sold again, stuck in a death game, sold AGAIN and now I’m living in a serial killer’s basement.

Oh and there’s another dude down here who lives in a cage and doesn’t talk. I call him Dead Man on account of his soulless eyes. He either wants to kiss me or choke me out. I can’t decide which I want most.

Anyways, my hot, tattooed, muscular insane Irish captor thinks I might make a good hit woman once he trains me up. Which is a freaking insult by the way as I’m already the best killer in town. Ask anyone. Except the cops. Don’t ask them or they’ll send me back to that creepy asylum where they gave me the crazy pills. But shh, that’s a secret.

Want to know another one? I quite like it here. Every day is anarchy and that’s my favorite flavor.

So I think I’m gonna join The Death Club and let my freak flag fly.

My Thoughts 

HOLY FREAKING CRAP…. This book was amazing…. I honestly have no words other than a string of positive adjectives to describe how much I enjoyed this book. 

There were so many elements that I enjoyed about this book, but the biggest thing I loved was Brooklyn. Brooklyn just didn’t give a hoot and it was so truly freeing to read her thoughts and about her actions. She is the reason I love to read. 

Wouldn’t you just love to wear bright swimsuits and crazy neon tights and to murder everyone who has wronged you? 

The way Brooklyn looked and lived her life was what we all wish we could. We wish we could do whatever we want and live life to our fullest. Her outlook on life and her insanely relatable thoughts were why I enjoyed this book so much. 

I have never laughed so hard at a book in my life. I quite literally peed my pants. 

The plot was crazy….. And I’ve read a LOT of dark romance, but this sh*t was so much crazier. 

Niall and Mateo were everything you could ever want in a group of bad boys in a dark romance reverse harem and I honestly don’t know who is my favorite… There dynamic in itself was hilariously dark 

Also… this book was much more of a slow burn than I expected…. I was shocked how much I didn’t care about the fact, but I’m hoping that the next book contains much more steam…. Because the sexual tension and innuendos will only go so far. 

Overall, I cannot wait for the next book!!!

My Thoughts

I thought that the first book couldn’t possibly be topped. But, these writers managed to do the first book justice and give me more laughs and steam than I thought I needed. 

I have no words. 

This book was an amazing ride and it was a perfect and beautiful conclusion to one of my favorite duets of all time. 

Brooklyn was once again a pure and dark delight, shining laughter and hilarity and what could be considered a truly dark and bloody world. She never lets her clumsy accidents or other people get her down and I wish we all could have that wonderful energy! 

The boys were even more fun in this book and rivaled Brooklyn crazy and magnetic energy. A third boy was added at the end of the first book, but we were introduced to him more in this book and Crazy Jack is definitely added to the list of book boyfriends. 

Although.. Towards the middle of the book it got a bit slow, but around 60% it took off like a shot and never stopped until the end.

The steam….ladies and gentlemen was everything I wanted and more…. CHEF’S KISS! 

Oh and that ENDINGGGGGG… omggggggggg! I was freaking crying from laughter. My boys from Kings of Quarantine were added to the mix and created such a heartwarming and hysterically funny scene. 

Thank you Caroline and Susanne for this duet. It truly made my year.
