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.)

Rayelle is an innocent young woman, pure and untouched. She is trying to experiment with things, in the company of her best friend Mira, but neither girl has done anything serious.

Everything changes when their physics teacher, Mr. Xavier, catches Rayelle being too playful in class, and the punishment that he devises will surprise both of the girls. Will it be a good surprise? Or one that ends up with Rayelle being taken hard and without protection, and even in the backdoor, for the first time? Mr. Xavier wants to keep Rayelle and Mira close, so what will he do to ensure that they are his?

 

 

Review

 

 

Oh my goodness Connie Cliff. Wow! What a fantastically naughty book. Normally I read these kinds of books at home, but I was planning on being out all day and I knew I’d have time to read. Soooo…. with that being said, I would not recommend reading this in a public place. Why? Because this short story could cause someone to break into spontaneous humping. Seriously, that is a hard one to explain away when you just start humping on a stranger. The police show up, everyone is pointing and staring, it’s just a big ole’ mess. 😉 Anyway… back to the review.

clean up

 

 

Rayelle is an extremely naive 18 year old catholic school girl and her friend Mira has recently shown her how to masturbate without touching herself. Once your masturbation cherry is popped, all you want to do is that over and over and over again.

 

 

masturbating all day

 

 

While in class, Rayelle can’t think of anything else except how to get herself off and decides to see if she can tryout her new trick while in class. Mr. Xavier, her teacher, happens to witnesses this and has Rayelle stay after class to punish her for her perversions.

 

 

do you wanna fuck

 

 

“Rayelle, do you realize what you were doing here, right in my classroom?”

 

 

What happens after that is why I put this in the 2 finger, 1 hand read category. Rayelle and Mira must have been really sheltered because they are both really naive for 18 year olds.

How does an innocent Catholic school girl remain a virgin? Well, with some back door action of course.

dont judge me

 

 

Why 4.5 stars? Only because Rayelle and Mira are clueless. That’s it. Everything else for me was perfectly perverted and I loved it.

This short story was so much fun to read. It’s really naughty, lots of fun kinks and my husband was the happy recipient of the side effects. The stranger at the mall…. umm, not so much. 😉 Although this is a very short story, it is really well written and the sex scenes make you feel like you are in the room with the characters and I LOVE that. So the next time I pick up a Connie Cliff book, I need to turn my phone off and put an out of office sign up, stay away from public places and just have some nice alone time. I would recommend this for people who are hot for teacher, like barely legal, older man, younger woman, taboo type reads. I can’t wait to read more from this author!
