Rating: ✮5 Stars✮


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. 
Slaughter is a dark romance. Contains disturbing scenes. Violent sexual situations.

Slaughter was an amazing unexpected read. I am first-time reader of this author, and most certainly will not be my last…I went blind in the book, just knowing that it will be a dark and twisted story, only I didn’t expect to be that dark and twisted…I don’t enjoy that much second chance romance stories, but this one was actually very good.

Avery and Bunny had the missed fortune to be born in the wrong families and fell in love when they were just kids. Their fathers were best friends and they were doing business together (human trafficking, kidnapped, raped and sold girls, and that’s if the girls were still alive). After Bunny’s parents were killed, Bunny and her brother came to live with the Deker’s, Avery’s family.

Avery’s and Bunny’s love was so pure and innocent, they loved each other very much, but apparently, their love wasn’t strong enough to survive the darkness and the bad world they lived in. So they broke up with their heart and soul broken in millions of pieces.

13 years had passed, and Avery considered that the time for his revenge has come. The Bunny he knows, HIS Bunny does no longer exist. This new Bunny is a real mess but she is much stronger. No more pure and innocent…As much as they loved each other 13 years ago, as much they hate each other now, but they can stay away from one another.

Avery as a character was…OMG… I have a new book boyfriend, a new CRUSH. He was a real badass. He is HOT. I liked his determination, his power. Although he hates Bunny, he can’t stay away from her, he still loves her, even if he doesn’t want to admit it. He loves her beyond himself.

Controlling and comforting.

Bunny as a character was a great character, my favorite type of heroine. In the past, she was sweet and innocent, but after her heart was broken and her life was destroyed, she became a lioness. A real badass. She defies Avery at every step. She was so smart and clever. Every time Avery thought he had her under control, Bunny proved him wrong, so wrong. And were many times…believe me. 

The book was awesome from all points of view, dark, twisted, mindfuck, hot, lovely, sweet, mystery, action, suspense, even funny. Bunny was a crazy girl. I really loved her and Avery…I still have to know all the secrets and mystery, to find more. More about Avery and Bunny and especially to know better Avery’s brother.

I highly recommend! ❤️
