I was captured…That’s just the beginning of my tale. I’ve survived Purgatory, abuse, and near death. In that abandoned farmhouse I nearly lost everything, but Jacob saved me. We were trapped in this hell together, giving each other the strength to hold on. I fell into darkness with my captor’s son.Until I left him behind.She was perfect, my Alana. Brilliant and full of pain. She understood my darkness and fueled the fire. When she left, I waited patiently to find her, and in her honor, I killed men who took away from innocents. Then I found her…She’s deadly now, a killer too, and perfectly mine. It was beautiful to behold, but she belongs in a cage. My cage. She’ll love me again, or I’ll expose her dirty secrets for the world to see while going down in flames with her. In darkness, it’s most definitely till death do us part.

Warning: This book is full of triggers. It’s wicked dark, with created evil falling in love. People die. They are hurt horribly. The bad guys get away, and there is no apology for it. Hardcore trigger within these pages.

 

 

 

Leaving me to my misery, Master and the doctor left the room to speak in harsh whispers in the hallway. Curling myself into a ball, I kept crying harder and harder until I was gasping for breath. Master threw a glare my way before leading the doctor far away from my room.
The pain, the loss, shot through me like I was taking a bullet to the heart. How could I have done this? How could I put my precious little one through something this awful? I was as bad as Master. I was a monster like him. Crying harder at my thoughts, my eyes caught on the doorway in time to see someone peeking in. My body relaxed in one great whoosh. Jacob was here. He slipped into the room and crept into the bed with me. Ignoring the blood and filth on the towels, for the first time, Jacob took me into his arms. I curled into his chest, inhaling his clean, crisp scent through the tears.
“I’m sorry, Alana. I couldn’t get here sooner, and I can’t stay here long. He’ll come back soon.”
It didn’t matter. He was here now, and I clung to him, curling my fingers into his shirt and holding on desperately. In his arms, the pain dulled, and I could handle it. I could cry into his chest and be held. I could be fragile, and he’d catch the broken pieces. His lips trailed up the side of my neck, soft kisses that pushed away the agony and warmed me.
“You can do it. You’re strong enough. Hold on a little longer,” he whispered into my skin. I believed it because he did too.
So I lifted my face so his lips could touch mine.
Soft and warm, his mouth was different. He slipped over the scars of my abuse and filled in the cervices left behind. Maybe it was the medicine making me fanciful, but I thought I could ask for this. That maybe I would ask him to take me. That I’d like to have him. But then, he was pulling away.
“I have to go. I’ll be with you later. Look for me.”
And as fast as he’d come, he was gone, but the pain was behind a wall, one he’d built high. He gave me strength, and I would use it to survive. I’d done the right thing, as horrible as it was, and I knew he didn’t judge me for it. We’d done this together, and it made the load easier to bear. Master stomped his way back into the room, face scarlet and chest heaving like a locomotive. I wanted to cringe at his bald fists, but I couldn’t move. I was too tired, or too resigned maybe, to care.

Pelican Freak’s 4.5-star Review:

Deena Rae is a total badass and Slade is yummy. I’m completely addicted to both characters and like with every Pierce Securities book I read, re-evaluating my favorites. I guess they’re all my favorites! Only Conley can design SO many characters that are so lovable in so many different ways.

The editing/proofing are professional, only few mistakes noted. Formatting is gorgeous as always. Cover is delicious and completely fitting.

I completely loved the beginning stages of Deena Rae and Slade’s ‘courtship’ – if you read the book you’ll understand the quotes around that word. It’s fun and unique and completely fitting of the two characters. Also I could completely feel their feelings for one another as each one fell just a little deeper for the other… this happened pretty quickly and there’s lots of heat along the way. It’s extremely fun watching Deena Rae come to terms with her feelings for Slade, as well as her interactions with the rest of the gang. I wish Deena Rae had her own series, actually.

You cannot go wrong with ANY of the Pierce Securities books. While this is a series, all books read as standalones.

Death changes us all …

Without my husband, my world caved. The business we built together is a prison. Our home, once filled with laughter and passion, is a tomb for what was. I want to give it all away and find a new place to start over. But the needs inside me, long-hidden whispers, won’t leave me alone. What I crave, a newfound darkness to match the pain, is impossible to ignore.

When Infidelity offers me a chance for fulfillment and a companion with no strings, I grasp it with both hands.

My Master is hurting. He’s filled with agonies and releases them on my flesh. We push and pull, an Owner and his slave, and I am helpless at his feet. But he strengthens me, giving me the power to fight his demons and substitute for what he’s lost.

I wasn’t supposed to fall in love, shouldn’t want to be more than a replacement. But I did, and I do. We only have the agreement between us, but I want him to own me irrevocably. Forever, always, to keep me … 

Collared.

I’m stoked to have finally read, what for me has been a highly-anticipated release: Book 4 in Trish Marie Dawson’s Find Me series!

This is my favorite series, and the one that introduced me to one of my favorite authors. Dawson has an annoying habit of leaving me hanging so I’ve been going mental waiting for this one.

It did not disappoint.

Pelican Freak’s 5-star review:

     I’ve been a fan of Dawson since ‘I Hope You Find Me’ and this is actually my favorite book series and she’s one of my two favorite authors.
So, it was with lots of excitement but also very, very high expectations that I embarked on Book 4 of her Find Me series. I’m not an easy person to impress, and was left hanging where the first three installments left off – still this one does not disappoint.
     When we left off in Book 3, Finding Hope, it of course, had grown increasingly dark, being the third book in a post apocalyptic series. I was impressed, constantly, with how perfectly she managed to pull off the escalating darkness of the mood, while keeping it real. Nothing about this series strikes me as far-fetched and the changes we see in the characters’ demeanors seem appropriate for what they’ve been through. This installment just picks up where its predecessor left off, tone-wise. Despite it growing darker, there is still always hope, thanks to brilliantly designed characters.  Dawson is incredibly brilliant in this way.
     As with all of her other books, I feel like I’ve watched it all play out. Her descriptions are so real, so raw and so detailed -without droning on annoyingly though- that I forget I’m looking at words and just watch all of the scenes play out in my mind. This is how all books should be, yes, but Dawson is one of the few authors who does this for me. When I had to put the book down, I missed it. This series stays with me and I’m certain I’ll be re-reading the entire series, greedily. Again.
     Despite the rotating point-of-views, there is no confusion. This way, the reader has insight into the various ways the different characters see things. It’s fascinating at times to view one character’s view of their relationship with that person, versus the other person’s. It was always a great way to showcase the various characters’ mindsets: some remained ever-hopeful, despite having lost everything. Others had developed some very interesting coping mechanisms that added drama to the group dynamic, adding another element of fun to the overall reading experience.
     Overall I’d give this 5 stars for keeping me engaged, not an easy feat, staying with me after I’ve finished it, and being professionally done.

I’ve only had this dreamcatcher for a short time – Hubby snapped it up promptly on its arrival. I noticed that it’s really well made. No feather shedding or otherwise shedding or falling apart – no matter how much I handled it. It was folded up, wrapped in plastic and included a cute little purple mesh gift bag. The gift bag is a nice touch – but the dreamcatcher absolutely will not fit in it.
 
As for whether or not it works- obviously: subjective and a bit soon to determine. At this point, our lack of bad dreams for the past several nights could be coincidence.
 
Either way, it looks cool. It’s well made. I’m able to tug on it and still no breakage or rips. I’m happy with it.
It’s listed as handmade, and I haven’t found anything to contradict this – the detail is good and it’s nice and tightly wrapped.
 
I received this dreamcatcher for free in exchange from my honest review.

Pelican Freak’s 5-star review:

Wow!

I came into this book not really sure what to expect.
The prologue left me still unsure of what to expect.. it was a great introduction to Mimic, who turned out to be a fascinating character but left questions. Did suck me in though.

The book is set in present time, but has futuristic technology if that makes sense. Really, it’s alien technology that humans stumble upon. Hammott manages to make it seem plausible. It’s not hard to believe that any other race would be more advanced than humans as… clearly we humans cannot get past superficial issues long enough to grip the big picture and just get our shit together.

This book centers around smarter-than-average humans so they sort of stand a chance against what they find… slim as it may be.

There’s nonstop action, almost.
Despite all of the action, there’s still plenty of opportunity to get to know the characters who are brilliantly developed.

I absolutely loved to hate one of them, was fascinated by a couple of them… rooted for the bulk of them and there was even a little romance worked in. Though it was subtle, it still managed to hold my attention and cause me to root for it.

This book also has laugh out loud moments and a little bit of heartwrench.
Lately, I’m having a hard time becoming engrossed in anything… as everything’s been done before. This is like nothing I’ve ever read and I’ll absolutely seek out more rom Hammott.

No complaints at all.. 5 stars.

After the Station loses one of its own, Piper’s past returns, and she realizes that the happiness she seeks out for herself and her friends may come with a steep price. As her world changes and crashes down around her, Piper realizes that love isn’t meant to be easy in the afterlife, and that happiness can’t last forever…or can it?

 

Pelican Freak’s 5-star Review:

Cover: Professional and fitting with the rest of the series, no complaints.

Editing/Proofing: Professionally done. No distractions from the reading experience, good continuity, etc.

Formatting: Unable to comment as I was provided with an advanced reader’s copy in order to evaluate the book.

I’m a long time, huge fan of Dawson. I enjoy the Station series an all the little novellas (teasers as I call them) she also put out while we waited for this, fourth installment of the series. As always with Dawson, it did leave me wanting more which drives me nuts because historically there’s a lot of time in between her books. But – this one isn’t killing me. I want more, more out of curiosity and attachment to the characters than a burning need to know (which is what I have going on with her Find Me series – she is KILLING me).

Piper is still true to character and her situations with Sloan and Rush, respectively, went as predicted – in a satisfying way if that makes sense.

The book’s prologue is a great refresher for the series, which was much-appreciated since it’s been so long since #3.

Early into the book, we are shown Bug’s story – Piper shares it with the reader and it is profoundly heartbreaking. I rarely get any real feels from fiction – but this was so well done, and sadly, so true to life for so many people today – that it physically hurt, as I ready the heart-wrenching details. I was impressed with Dawson’s ability to draw that out of me and as sad as the scene was, I found it to be brilliantly and perfectly executed. Now I was emotionally invested (as if I wasn’t already with this whole series). Pay attention to Bug’s story, because it contains a very important message that we need to remember when back to reality.

Piper is both kind of wise beyond her years and at times, still kind of a boy-crazy teenager so that dichotomy is fun to read, as it was in the rest of the books too. For all the serious, Dawson brilliantly arranges some fun as well.

Overall the book fits well with the rest of the series; I don’t think it’s my favorite installment, I think Book 1 still is, as it’s the one that hooked me, but it’s very well done and did not disappoint even after the long wait for it.

I also enjoyed something Rush said that most people would do well to remember:
“…every failrure leads to a more fulfilling success.”
Words to live by.

Anyway- well done. No complaints, wouldn’t change anything and see no reason to rate this any less than five stars.
