Can the most damaged of sins embrace redemption?

By night, fallen angel Triel Ekron is a successful nightclub and restaurant owner in Las Vegas. By day, he enjoys assassinating humans in the most creative of ways.

When his latest mark turns out to be highly gifted in the kitchen, Triel gives her a choice: become his new imprisoned chef, or watch her family be murdered in front of her before she’s killed too. After all, his last chef just met an untimely death—at his hand—and Triel is looking for some new flavors to indulge in.

Cassie Fleming has dreamed her whole life of owning her own restaurant, following in her beloved mother’s footsteps. But when her mother’s murderer finds her in Witness Protection, she’s left with an ultimatum—and saving what’s left of her family is the only option. She’ll do anything for them, including signing away her freedom.

Triel’s brutal demonic side will wage war against Cassie’s kind and forgiving nature, but it’ll take a lot more than the cruelness of a fallen angel to kill her spirit. And no matter how much Triel tries to avoid it, Cassie gets under his skin in a way that makes him question everything he’s believed for so long. Will he put aside his prejudices and admit he’s been wrong about humans all along, or will he destroy the precious gift his father has offered him?

There are no heroes in this dark PNR series, only villains. It consists of explicit content, dubious, and graphic situations that some readers might find offensive.

My Two Cents

4 "I can't look away" stars

Okay. Okay.
Still trying to catch my breath here.
I thought I was ready.
I was NOT ready!!
Can you ever really be ready for the disgusting and depraved and delicious imaginings of Marissa Honeycutt?

Triel followed Lucifer and was cast from Heaven. As second-in-command, he had built his own hell on Earth in Las Vegas. Every human was something to be toyed with. They were there for his amusement, his pleasure, his punishment. And oh, were his 'punishments' a tale of their own.

Cassie was a sweet girl who only wanted to be a chef and testify against her mother's murderer. Too bad her quest for justice put her in Triel's crosshairs. This kind and forgiving girl ends up at his mercy and quickly finds out he has none.

He brutalizes her. He hurts her. He disrespects her. He punishes her. He unleashes the beast and shows her how cruel he can be. Those scenes, as terrible as they were... that was some fine writing right there. Seriously, Triel's imaginative torture scenes were as beautiful as they were depraved. (Now I'm also thinking of Cole. Dang.)

My thoughts during certain scenes:
* omg
* can humans take that much?
* oh gosh, thankfully it's over
* wait, it's not over???
* after all that, Triel still found it within himself to make things so much worse?
* crashing and clanking noises in my head. Does not compute.
* I can't unsee any of this!

And honestly, I couldn't see how this fallen angel could ever be redeemed. The things he did were beyond compare and how do you even walk back from that? I still don't think he made up for anything, but in order for there to be a somewhat happy ending, I had to let my disbelief go. I had to go with the flow. And Cassie did spark something within Triel. She reminded him of who he used to be. Of who he could be once again. And I guess that has to count for something.

For all dark lovers out there, this is definitely right up your alley. There are no shades of grey. It's all black and inky, full of deadly shadows. It's a horrific paradise!

  1. Just reading your thoughts while reading this book has me tense! I was already a little nervous about this one because "Gluttony" reminds me of that Brad Pitt movie Se7en.

  2. oh wow this one sounds so intense. I love dark romance, but I think this would push my limits, you have me intrigued though. I definitely would have to be in a certain mood to read it though.

    Lovely review!

    1. Thanks luv!
      Honestly, I'm a dark lover, but this author always pushes my limits. It's very graphic, so if you choose to read it, be prepared!!
