Bloody Cruel Monster by Lucy Smoke ~ Blog Tour w/ 5 Star Review & Excerpt!

Bloody Cruel Monster, the dark and all-consuming second book in The Bloody Duet from USA Today bestselling author Lucy Smoke is available now!

It will end the same way it started … with death.

Clover

I gave Braxton Smalls everything. I sacrificed myself and all I ended up with was a broken heart and a shattered soul. Now, I’ve got bigger things to worry about than an angry Eastpoint Heir hot on my trail.

Brax may be the psycho who kidnapped me–but he’s nothing compared to the organization my brother works for.

And me? I’m the monster ready to wreck them all.

Braxton

I live for vengeance. That’s all I know, all I see. Until her. Until Clover La Roux. No … until Evgenia Volkov. Daughter of a Russian mobster. Sister to the man who tortured one of my best friends. The only woman to ever satisfy the cruel desires inside of me.

Whoever took her will pay with their lives. And once I have her back, I’ll make sure she can never leave me again. Consequences be damned.

An intense, suspenseful dark conclusion to Braxton and Clover’s story. I loved every single minute of it. Braxton’s gut instinct that Clover is HIS was the turning point for me in this duet. These two have that angsty desire for one another that pulled at my heartstrings. I love that this series has STRONG (with broken bits) heroines that kick butt and aren’t waiting for some man to save them. They are right there in the middle of the action saving themselves and others. Braxton had a TON of emotional growth and I loved how my broken man found someone that fit with his torn up pieces. For me, this duet was perfection and all of the dark, disturbing bits made it addictive and sucked me in. Definitely an emotional ride but that’s what makes me fall in love with story…something unpredictable with twists that I don’t see coming and ties to a family that may not be the one they were born into. But one that was created and stronger than blood.

Excerpt

“You’re going to have to forgive me at some point,” he replies. “Because I’m not letting you go, Clover.”

“I don’t have to do shit,” I tell him. “It’s my life, my choices. For all the power you have, Brax, you can’t force me to love you.”

His amusement drops away and he reaches up, fingers tightening around my wrist. I press into his carotid artery and feel a responding movement against the lips of my sex. I blink and glance down, shocked. “Are you fucking hard? Now?”

“My baby is sitting, half naked on my dick with her hand around my throat,” he replies coolly. “Were you not trying to get me hard?”[HL1]

On instinct, I release a growl and tighten my hold. “You are so fucked up, Braxton.”

“I could say the same for you, Clover,” he replies. “Or would you prefer Evgenia?”

“I would prefer not to look at your traitorous fucking face, yet here we are.”

“Right,” he agrees readily and then offers me a smug grin before continuing, “with your pussy rubbing against my cock. Perfect place, if you ask me.”

My chest pumps up and down. What now? I think. Do I kill him? Can I? My head fogs over with the desire. “You’re mad at me for leaving,” I say, my words barely above a whisper as his hands creep up the line of my hips. His bare palms skim the outside of my naked thighs.

More heat. More ice. They’re like warring sides within me. One side trying to be calm and rational and the other obliterating it without a care. I can’t tell which will win. I can’t tell which one I want to win.

“But I think I have more of a reason to be pissed,” I continue, trying as hard as I can to ignore those emotions and feelings and the wetness gathering between my legs as he presses his hips upward. The fabric of his low slung, gray sweats rubs against me and I know when I get off of him, there will be a spot of it soaked in my own juices.

“You kidnapped me.”

“I did.”

“You hurt me.”

Braxton’s hands clench against me. “I did,” he repeats.

“You fucked me.”

“And you liked it.”

Fuck him. He’s right. I did like it. A part of me hadn’t wanted to, but he was the fucking best I’d ever had. In my short realm of experience, no man had ever taken me to the same depths, to the same edges as Braxton had. It’d been more than a physical fuck. It’d been a mindfuck as well. As bad as he is, he made me realize something about myself.

I liked the pain.

And I liked giving it as well.

She’s also pulled off a lot of heists. But when they start becoming a problem for Atlas, their worlds get intertwined. Atlas and Valentina’s history causes issues with their work. Atlas was handed his job by his father. Valentina is a bit jealous of how easily Atlas came into the money he has. She tries to get deeper into their world and becomes involved with more dangerous people. The sexual chemistry between these two is HOT. But does it interfere with their work? You will have to read the story to find out.

There is a lot going on in the story so I kept a notebook close by so I could take notes on who’s who and related to who. This is a beautifully written story about love literally falling into your arms. Basilio DiLustro, Kingpin to the New York Syndicate, is standing outside of a home and sees someone ready to fall from a window. The young lady asks him to catch her and he does. Wynter Star is sneaking out of her uncle’s home and Basilio helps her escape. That is the beginning of a crazy adventure for Wynter and all of her friends. House fires, robbing casinos and so much more. But when they get in trouble, Wynter runs to Basilio for help. He agrees…if Wynter goes on a date with him.

This is such a great story of the connection between two people and whether it is strong enough to hold them together. Despite all the lies and drama between their families. I am looking forward to reading the next story to see who the hot “bad guy” will be and who they are matched up with.

I married the very man I’m supposed to hate.

I still can’t believe it, but when I saw Luc, beaten and bloody in that church, I knew there was no way out.

I had to marry him.

That doesn’t mean everything the Rejects and I have worked toward has been for nothing. If anything, it matters more now than ever. Once again, the Antonellis have incurred my wrath. They’ve stolen my brother and I will do whatever it takes to rescue him from their clutches.

The problem is, in order to achieve such a task, we all need to work together. All five of us. Me, Cain, Oliver, Dante, and Enzo. How the hell am I meant to get two groups of men on opposing sides to even be in the same room together, let alone work side-by-side? To trust one another?

It’s a tall order, but like I said, I will do whatever it takes to get my brother back, even if it means putting my faith in my so-called enemies and crossing territorial lines that were never meant to be crossed.

This series has become one of my FAVORITE RH series EVER! MY GOD! Crazy, insane action. Twisted, suspenseful stuff. And just when I think my two couples (gangsters and mafia) are redeemable and things might head towards a smooth road…NOPE. Gotta throw a wrench in there. I honestly don’t know how Sawyer remains as levelheaded as she does. She kicks butt and rationalizes everyone’s emotions. DAMNNNNN. I did love how devoted her men were and the way they put her and her brother as their number one priority. My heart swooned all over the place. The biggest change I saw was in Dante because I feel like he’s becoming more human every day he spends with Sawyer. GREAT SERIES. GREAT BOOK! Can’t wait to see what happens next because I’m dying with these cliffhangers!

Phenomenal Second Chance, Small Town Romance! When Foster moves back to down, Talia Eden doesn’t know what she’s going to do. With the way their relationship ended, why would she EVER give Foster a chance to explain. I was right there with her too! Foster has some secrets and when they come out, it’s like the hits just keep coming. This swoony romance comes with some twists, crazy blackmail, hot MMA action and a young doctor that doesn’t seem to get any respect. The story even touches on bullying not only of a young girl but of Talia herself. But with Foster back in her corner, Talia opens herself up and it’s beautiful to see. These two had me smiling when they became a team again. Such a feel good read and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for the Edens! You tease, you…
