Blurb
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.

Trailer
Excerpt
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?”

RECENZJA/REVIEW:

Dawno nie czytałam książki, która aż tak mną wstrząsnęła.

Slaughter to opowieść mroczna, brudna i wulgarna. Mimo wielu wątków, które można uznać za „triggery”, historia Presleigh i Avery’ego wciągnęła mnie od pierwszej strony.

Presleigh i Avery zostali wychowani w okrutnym świecie seksualnego niewolnictwa, którym kierowali ich ojcowie. W świecie tym jest pełno przemocy, gwałtów, krzyku i łez.

Mimo okoliczności, które mrożą krew w żyłach Avery i Presleigh połączyła szczera, niepowtarzalna miłość. Oboje chcieli wyrwać się z tego okrutnego świata, by rozpocząć nowe wspólne życie. Ale tak się nie stało. Zakochani zostali rozdzieleni i przez 11 lat żyli w poczuciu zdrady i nienawiści do siebie nawzajem. Po tak długim czasie oboje się zmienili. Avery jest obecnie kopią własnego ojca- jest bezlitosny, okrutny i pełen nienawiści. Presleigh jest duchem dawnej siebie. Ciągle imprezuje, pije i sypia z kim popadnie, by tylko się znieczulić.

Po 11 latach byli Avery znów pojawia się w życiu Presleigh. Ale nie jest to szczęśliwe spotkanie. Z jednej strony Avery chce chronić kobietę, którą kiedyś kochał, a z drugiej torturuje ją w imię własnej zemsty. Byli kochankowie brylują w otchłani nienawiści, niespełnionych obietnic i niepohamowanej żądzy. Bo mimo czasu, który upłynął, ich ciała nie są w stanie zapomnieć bliskości, która kiedyś ich łączyła.

Rozdział po rozdziale przeżywamy z bohaterami cały wachlarz emocji. Moje serce płakało nad Presleigh, gdy na jaw wychodziły wszystkie okropieństwa, które ją spotkały. Odczułam niebywałą wściekłość, gdy dowiadywałam się o kłamstwach, którymi był karmiony Avery. Jeśli chodzi o sceny intymne między bohaterami to trzeba pamiętać, że mamy przed sobą dark romance- seks jest brutalny i hardcorowy.

Shantel Tessier odwaliła kawał dobrej roboty w tej historii. Slaughter jest idealnym przykładem, jak powinien wyglądać dark romance. Mimo ciężkich tematów, nie mogłam odłożyć tej książki. Zdecydowanie polecam!

 

 

ENG:

 

 

I haven’t read a book that shocked me this much for a long time.

Slaughter is a dark, dirty and vulgar story. Despite many plots that can be considered as triggers, the story of Presleigh and Avery drew me from the first page.

Presleigh and Avery were raised in the cruel world of sexual slavery that their fathers guided. This world is full of violence, rapes, screams and tears.

Despite the circumstances that freeze blood in the veins, Avery and Presleigh were connected by honest, unique love. They both wanted an out of this cruel world to start a new life together. But it didn’t happen. The lovers were separated and for 11 years they lived in a sense of betrayal and hatred towards each other. After such a long time they both changed. Avery is currently a reminder of his father – he’s merciless, cruel and full of hatred. Presleigh is the ghost of the former self. She’s constantly partying, drinking and sleeping around, only to feel numbness.

After 11 years, Avery appears again in Presleigh’s life. But this is not a happy reunion. On the one hand, Avery wants to protect the woman he once loved, and on the other, he tortures her in the name of his own revenge. Former lovers are drowning in the depths of hatred, unfulfilled promises and unrestrained lust. Because despite the time that has passed, their bodies can’t forget the closeness that once connected them.

Chapter by chapter we experience a whole range of emotions with heroes. My heart was crying over Presleigh when all the horrors that had met her were revealed. I felt an unbelievable rage when I learned about the lies that Avery was fed. When it comes to intimate scenes between characters, you must remember that we have dark romance in front of us – the sex is brutal and hardcore.

Shantel Tessier did a great job in this story. Slaughter is a perfect example of what dark romance should look like. Despite heavy topics, I could not put down this book. I definitely recommend it!
