<— This series (or should I say “duet”) is now complete!! As per JenC, it appears these characters were introduced in her “Joker’s Wrath Series“, so this is a spinoff of that, but looks like they can be read on their own, and I posted book #2 below.
JenC: Gobbled up Anguish by Bella Jewel in one sitting the night it was released. Absolutely LOVED it. Probably my favourite of the series. I really, really enjoyed the Joker’s Wrath series as a whole – not groundbreaking reading by any means but likeable (mostly!) characters … characters what were well written anyway. I really enjoy Bella’s writing style too, it flows effortlessly and the books are hard to put down – highly addictive! Maryse’s words “deliciously dangerous” are a perfect way to describe the series! I’d highly recommend reading them in order! Each book is centred on a different couple but the story kind of flows on through each one. So yeah, might be a bit confused in places and get a few spoilers if you read it out of order! And now I’m am absolutely hanging out for late November and ‘Til Death - the main two characters were introduced in Anguish!
Lauren: Anyone know when Bella Jewel’s sequel to Til Death will be out? It was a full length book & didn’t hint @ a massive cliffhanger till the end. I was pissed!!! There was a note that read, “Sorry about the cliffhanger, don’t worry book 2 out in 2wks”. It’s been almost 3wks now!!!!! Where. Is. It!
LOL!!! Poor Lauren. Relief is here, ’cause as of today, because book #2 (the conclusion) has just been released!
About book #1:
They say there’s a fine line between love and hate.
I fell in love with a monster.
He used me. He destroyed me. He made a fool out of me.
I didn’t know it at the start. You never do.
You think you have found the man of your dreams. You think nothing could break you apart.
How wrong you are.
I loved Marcus Tandem with everything that was me.
To him, I was just a business deal, a way to keep something he’d worked hard for.
He never had any intentions of returning my affections.
He never wanted me in his life.
But I wanted him in mine.
When you fall in love with the devil, you expect to get burned.
Marcus burned me. He consumed me. He devastated me.
Somewhere inside, I knew he was no good. I just prayed having me in his life might be enough.
I hold onto that small hope, that maybe, just maybe, somewhere deep down in his soul, he might love me too.
