Right off the bat I would like to give a warning to readers. If you’re looking for something safe, familiar or a happy ending, then this book probably isn’t for you. If you have triggers with extreme violence, torture, rape, animal neglect, dog fighting and one (not graphic but it was intentional) baby death, then you should approach with caution. You have been warned. On the flip side, if you have an open mind, a strong stomach and love a twisted tale that will immediately pull you in, give you hope and then crush your dreams, you should totally give this book a try. You will not regret it.

This is the first time I’ve read Bret Williams and most definitely not the last. When I found out he was a local author, I had to stalk him and his books to see what they were all about. I really enjoy reading books that are set in or around my area. Family Business didn’t specifically say where this was located, just in the “backwoods of Missouri” and that sounds like it could be the deepest and darkest part of the Ozark area, or at least that is what I imagined.

The story starts innocently enough, with Erika planning on surprising her husband, Stephen, with a new puppy. While driving to a breeder in the rural backwoods Missouri, Erika has some internal warning alarms going off but ignores them because she really wants a puppy. While trying to decide on just the right pup to bring home, Erika is met with a surprise herself and things take a very dark and disturbing turn.

The only part that kind of got on my nerves was an early section with a ton of rape. Yes, it’s necessary for the story progression but let’s move on, I get it. For a minute, it really felt like the story wasn’t progressing but it eventually did. Another thing that shocked me (actually there was a ton of things that shocked me) was the ending and how abruptly it ended. It feels like a cliffhanger, but the more I think about it, the more I feel like it’s not really a cliffhanger. Are there questions I need answered, yes and hopefully I’ll get those answered in the other books.

Since I bought the audio version of this book, I need to comment on Joe Hempel’s performance. Wow! He has a smooth and hypnotizing voice. He does character voices effortlessly and I could easily distinguish who was talking by the accent he used. He seemed to really enjoy what he was reading.

Overall, this book is dark, twisted, brutal, uncompromising and disturbing. Family Business made me cringe, laugh and cry. Fantastic writing, world building and character development. I would recommend this book to horror fans, but please do read the warning and read at your own risk. I gave this 5 stars because the overall story and the audio narrator were so amazing. Bravo!

OH! P.s… Stephen… you are a motherfucker! I hope karma catches up to your ass. Bitch!

P.S.S. If you want to know what happens to the baby then read this part. This is a true spoiler alert. Do not read this if you don’t want to know what happens. (These women are being bread like dogs and there is one part where a newborn baby is shot. The baby is killed because he was born deformed and for revenge. The death is not detailed and it does not dwell on it, but it is in there.)

Oh… my…. goodness! This was an intense book! There are a bunch of parts that were so fucked up, I thought I was going to vomit. Actually, this entire book is fucked up. But in a good, sick, twisted, emotionally raw, scary and heart pounding way. It will for sure get your adrenaline pumping! This book will stay with me for a very long time.

If you pick up this book, just know that there are potential triggers for people. Rape, torture, necrophilia, murder, plenty of mind fucks and there is a some pregnancy torture. I’ll tell you something… I learned some life lessons in this book.

I must also check out a book that is referenced… Annie’s Revenge. Also… this author is from the Ozarks. This is only 3 hours away from me. I actually go there every summer and my uncle has a cabin there.

After a weekend of sex and murder, Nathan has discovered he is not the only one with sinister secrets and addictions. He is faced with accepting another woman in his life that could possibly be the key to breaking him from his own selfish ways. It has been a fun weekend for him, but now he must escape the law and find a new place to hide. Will he be able to continue living the life of deadly dominance, or will he fall in the hands of the police?

Adrianna is Nathan’s number one fan and ultimate love interest. She may appear to have a conservative shell over all of her clothes, but underneath it all, she is just as sex driven as Nathan. After she murders her friend Mandy and discovers her own deadly demons, she realizes a life with her favorite author is all she wants even if it means facing his past with… Mrs. Red.

 

 

Review

 

 

description

 

 

First a little warning as this book/series contains some possibly distressing material. It involves graphic rape, torture, cannibalism and copious amounts of blood and twisted fuckery. There might be things that may make you feel uncomfortable, turn you on or maybe even vomit. But none of that effects me so bring on the dark side!

 

 

description

 

 

Deadly Demons picks up right where Deadly Dominance left off. In this round we get to find out the aftermath of Nathan and Adrianna’s night of sexual deviation and chilling slaughter of Adrianna’s “friends”, Mandy and Bo.

Nathan and Adrianna get the hell out of Dodge and are now officially on a road trip to get far away from the scene that played out the night before. Both of them are constantly thinking about killing the other and wondering if the other will get them first.

 

 

description

 

 

I feel like part of this book could be a new game show called “Getting to Know Your Serial Killer”. A lot of this book really gets the back story on Nathan and Adrianna and really tells us how and why these two do the things they do. In my opinion, Adrianna is a sexual submissive with homicidal tendencies. I really think she was feeling kind of bad about killing her friends and its really starting to fuck with her head. Nathan is a power/control junkie who brags about his conquests through his books and someone from his past is about to catch up to him. AND I can’t wait to see how that turns out!

 

 

description

 

 

The sex is absolutely sickening and fantastic. FUCK! Adam and Alexia can really write a great sex scene. Here is a bit of one scene that is crazy hot!

 

 

“His lips find mine and his tongue slips in massaging me. When I become hungry for more, he rips my head back to show me he’s in control. As his grip loosens my hair, I feel him penetrate my tight core, lunging so deep all I feel is his heart beat inside of me.”

 

 

There is so much fantastic stuff in here that I don’t want to accidentally give anything away so I’ll make this last bit quick. We do get some new faces of evil in this one. Bethany and Mrs. Red. That’s it…. that’s all I can say about that. OH wait… that fucking ending? Holy shit! I did not see that coming!

 

 

description

 

 

This book is filled with blood, debauchery, murder, sexual wickedness and evil perversion. This is a very well written story, but does have some misspelled words or words that are spelled correctly but are the wrong words for the sentence. That is literally my only complaint. I can’t wait for you all to read it and I am SUPER EXCITED about the next book.

Thank you Jessica for the recommendation. I really enjoyed this sick and twisted tale. To be completely honest, this wasn’t as dark as I was expecting. HOWEVER, this was really dark and extremely fucked up. Going into this short story I was pretty nervous and didn’t know what to expect.

Danny, is living with his Uncle because his mother passed away and his dad has been dead for a number of years. His Uncle is very comforting and supportive. Danny is enrolled in school and doing well. A few months go by and there is this one door in the house that is never opened, the basement door. Danny asked his Uncle about it and was always told, curiosity killed the cat. Well, that made Danny even more curious about what was behind the door. Do you know what happened next? While his Uncle was at work, Danny finds his way into the basement and what he finds there is not at all what he expected.

 

 

description

 

 

From this point on my heart was pretty much beating out of my chest. You know that feeling when you’re a kid and you’re doing something that you know you’re not supposed to be doing. Then someone walks in and bust you… ya. That feeling.

 

 

description

 

 

This is where the fucked up shit happens. Oh my word! Humiliation, mutilation, mindfuckery, abuse and sexual violence. Let me tell you about the “snuff”. Yes, there is a section in here where a film is shown and described in detail. This short story is not for the faint of heart. The author gives a great and very true warning.

 

 

description

 

 

Then… that ending. I expected death and destruction and I got something completely different.

I did have some issues with this though. This was banned because Danny is a minor and there is a couple brief moments of cringe worthy incest. Because Danny didn’t put up a fight at all, it seemed that he was trying to justify everything that was going on by saying that he fears his Uncle. I’m not really sure about that. But on the flip side, if I had walked into what Danny did, maybe I would be shocked and scared too. Also, I think this story was translated to English because there are a lot of grammar errors.

Overall, I enjoyed it. It is totally fucked up and will probably give me a bad dream or two.

Review

 

 

WOW! I feel like I could murder some people right about now. I really like this. 🙂
description

 

 

This is pretty fucked up and so very good. It also makes me think twice about some of the books I read. LOL! So…. is your browsing history on your computer really just research for writing? 😉 Or are they resources for true stories?

Anyway, this book starts off with one of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read. Bravo! It was hard, hot and dirty and I loved it. Then we get a little bit deeper into Nathans head and see a glimpse of the darkness that is just below the surface. Then all of the sudden….. (sorry, can’t reveal secrets here)

 

 

description

 

 

So, Nathan hops in his car and heads to one of his secluded and peaceful homes. When he arrives, he finds there are a bunch of annoying people hanging out at his neighbors house. There is one girl that catches his eye and that is Adrianna. She is a huge fan of Nathan’s books and invites him to join them for dinner. Sure why not…

 

 

“This would be my first time wanting to slaughter a reader, but then again, I can pretend she’s one of those cranky ass reviewers that think they are literary gods.”

 

 

While there, Nathan meets Mandy, Bo and Cory. Typical, snotty college brats. You know the type… the ones that are first to die in a horror movie because they went and had sex in the woods and they never return. They question Nathan about the controversial content of his books.

 

 

description

 

 

Don’t poke the bear kids… you just might get bitten. Anyway, Nathan has things he needs to do and things he needs to bury. While he is taking care of business, he stumbles across a scene between Mandy and Bo…. in the woods. Nathan is immediately intrigued by Mandy and the scene unfolding before him. Maybe she isn’t as innocent as she pretends.

 

 

“I try to keep the beast tamed, but self-control is no longer on my side.”

 

 

description

 

 

“Eventually nightmares become reality, and I am the one that harnessed them. I embrace them to create the monster I am today.”

 

 

This is pretty much where the darkness really comes to light. It’s like a Tender date gone terribly wrong and now you’re stuck with the Boogeyman.

 

 

“I’m going to enjoy everything that you’re about to hate.”

 

 

description

 

 

“There is nothing that can bring me back from Lucifer’s playground.”

 

 

Why 4 stars? Meh, I had little issues with some things. Like some wrong words in sentences, not a lot, but enough to notice. Spelled correctly, but missed by spell check (final vs Finally). Also, if this many people have gone missing… there are a lot of careless mistakes being made. Seriously… don’t shit where you eat. It’s too close to home. Also, how is it that Nathan can find the g-spot every single time on different women. He must have some serious skills.

Overall, I really liked it. It was shocking, different and cringe worthy and times it made me want to vomit. Exactly what I needed at the moment. I’m warning you though, there is extreme violence and possible triggers for some people. If you’re a fan of horror than you will love this. I cant wait to read more from these authors.

PreOrder Blitz ~ Her Master’s Teacher by Lily White

 She caught my attention the first day I was seated in her class.

Her dark red hair fell in waves down her back and her alabaster skin appeared to sparkle under the lights of the lecture hall

I’d admired her from a distance, never speaking or doing anything to draw attention to myself.

Each day that I spent watching her in this room, I noticed how her eyes would flick up to me. She was wary of me – frightened – and she had reason to be.

Allow me to introduce myself…

My name is Holland Strong and at 21 years old, I’m the youngest Master within a society of wealthy and influential men.

Clair Elliot is my psychology professor in college – that is, at least, until I make her my first courtesan.

She believes she knows everything about how the mind works…

…and I believe I can prove her wrong

The Author

 

 

Melissa photo
Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book. When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
