Torn review by Rue Volley

If you have missed book one in Rue Volley’s Razor Saga, I highly recommend you go and get it. Now, but only if you are comfortable with hardcore erotic fiction. Trust me, you’ll want to read it so you can jump right into book two, Torn. Torn was a fast-paced, super hot read that left me anxious for the next one. 

We find Lilah in the aftermath of Razor, and while I can’t tell you what that situation is in fear of giving things away, when you begin Torn you will still be reeling from the loop Rue Volley threw you in the first installment.

 Volley will take you places no other book printed in the United States can take you. Her book is so dirty US printers refuse to print it, and that is the highest praise an author can get.[At least in my opinion.] Both Razor and Torn are edgy, beautifully written stories that leave you wanting more. The characters, regardless of the time spent in the story are engaging and believable. 

I love it when an author writes to tell a story alone, and not worry about marketability. Rue Volley is that author.

The Razor Saga will take you places you never thought you would go, but you may never want to leave. I am already anticipating book three in the series, Malice.

If my blog had star ratings, I would definitely assign both Razor and Torn a five out of five.

A Poem

It’s not me, it’s you
All the things you put me through

Forgiveness can only go so far
When you lie about who you are

Try not to win me back
I don’t want to pick up the slack

For now I am better off
And even if you may scoff

I’ve moved on
So please, take this as an affirmation

The worst parts of me were caused by you
And it is with that, I say ado.

Venn by Roxanne Hunter

I finally got an eReader again, so my review posts will become more frequent.

The first book I finished reading in the new year was Venn by Roxanne Hunter, and boy was it good.

Wow. What a read. Venn by Roxanne Hunter was  hard to put down. Almost immediately you find out that Jessie Daniels has not had a good life. Everyone needs a protector, and for Jessie that guardian is Venn. As a means to protect her, Venn commits a murder which lands Jessie into a mental institution. Most of the hospital staff treats Jessie and Venn horribly. No progress is made until Dr. Reynolds comes along. It is hard not to give details away, but I would hate to spoil such a good read. I will say this: First impressions can be misleading and people aren’t always as they portray themselves. In Venn you will find that just about anyone can surprise you. Not all of the therapists are against Jessie and Venn, and they are some of the characters I grew to love the most. If you love a stagnant, straight-forward story, this one isn’t for you. But if you like a great deal of character development and twists and turns aplenty this one is for you. The end leaves you wanting more. When can I get Venn: Reborn? I will definitely read any Roxanne Hunter book I come across from here on out.
