Slaughter by Shantel Tessier ~ Release Blitz w/ Two Raving Reviews, Trailer, Excerpt & Giveaway!

RB Banner (26)
Title: Slaughter
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: October 26, 2018


My name is Avery Decker, and my story isn’t for the faint of heart. It is about revenge  and hatred, misery and violence. I wasn’t always this way even though it was in my blood. I grew up happy and in love with my best friend until she betrayed me and walked away. After that, I fell into the deep, dark world I was meant for.


Presleigh Clarke’s actions turned me into the ruthless man I am today. Too bad for her, I believe people should pay for the things they have done. The more painful and messy, the better. I get off on making people bleed. It feeds my inner demon, and right now, he is starving. She crossed me once, so now she’ll know what it’s like to fear me. But not all stories end the way you think they will … mine certainly didn’t.

Holy hells bells!! What a freakin’ ride I just went on!! One I freakin’ loved. This book was packed with action. Not just the steamy kind either. Two words to describe this book would be dark and delicious. When I first read the blurb I knew I had to have this book immediately, and it did not disappoint at all. Although it was a little darker than what I thought it would be. Which for me was freakin’ great! To me the darker the read the more I like it.

Slaughter is a fast pace read. Lots of stuff happening very quickly. That’s the only thing that tripped me up while reading. I would get going flipping pages and was like wait…what!? But when I slowed down and went back I was like ohhhh okay. So it wasn’t that details were missing at all just that it’s super quick. I fell for Avery and Presleigh immediately. Their story isn’t one for hearts and flowers. It’s one for dark read lovers! Especially this dark read loving girl! Don’t miss this one!

Presleigh and Avery are childhood sweethearts who were born into evil families. From a young age, they are exposed to violence and brutality against women and young girls. Presleigh is disgusted by it and Avery is forced to join in.

After a separation, these two once soulmates have nothing but hatred for each other and have years for it to build and smolder. Avery’s actions towards Presleigh were borderline disturbing to me. He is violent, abusive and demeaning to her. I get he is hurt and there are more extenuating circumstances to both of their sides but after all these years it just seemed to be fresh in their minds.

It was very dark…a little too dark for me but the basis of the two lovers coming back together and the truth coming out was something I enjoyed but just not so much the brutality. If you’re looking for a dark, violent book this would be your jam.


Big blue eyes stare into mine with a look of terror. Good, she recognizes me. Even in her drunken state, and eleven years later, she still knows who I am.


Her pink lips part, inhaling sharply. Her entire body goes rigid. I take a step toward her as she pulls me in just as she always did. I never could control myself with her. But this time has to be different. I have to be in total control of myself and of her.
She doesn’t move.
She doesn’t blink.
She doesn’t breathe.
Deciding to close the gap completely, I take two more steps until my body is close enough to feel the heat radiating from hers. Her long, dark hair drapes over one shoulder, and it looks good on her. She loved when I used to run my hands through her short hair and play with it. Now I just want to wrap it around my fists and force her to her knees. We never did fuck. We made love—always soft and slow. Now when I picture us in bed together, she is bound and gagged. That way, she won’t be able to stop all the sadistic shit that comes to mind.
I’ve become one of those men I swore to never be! All because of her.
I want her to beg me.
I want her to bleed for me.
I want her to love me.
But I’m not stupid. None of those things will come willingly. I’m gonna have to take them. And I have no problem with that. She made me who I am today, after all.
She continues to stand there like a deer in headlights. I give her a threatening smile but reach out to tuck her hair behind her ear in an innocent gesture when what I really wanna do is slap that look of surprise off her face.
Her body physically shakes.
“Hello, Bunny. Miss me?”
