Anyho, Madison tried to escape the treachery that surrounded her, but I wasn't surprised when all her plans fell apart. Once again, Bishop owned me in this book. I WANT... no I NEED this man's POV STAT!! He OWNS me!! Although I'm still unsure about who he really is as a person, what exactly he's done, what he plans to do, or if he's sincerely feeling Madison, I DO know that I'm anxious to continue with this series to hopefully find out.

I apologize for this vague review it's only because I don't want to divulge any spoilers to ones that haven't gotten around to reading this. I highly recommend this series!! Unique, Unpredictable, Unputdownable. Ultra addictive!! As we saw in the last chapter of ‘The Silver Swan’ Madi is running for her life with Tatum in tow, new names, new passports, destinations unknown. All in the name of disappearing without a trace, or so they thought, leaving the ‘Elite Kings Club.’ behind. Or so she thought. They used me as their Puppet. Now I'm broken. But Bishop's know where she's been all along, he was just biding his time to come get her and bring her back to where she belongs. If Bishop didn't come get you, someone else would have, only you wouldn't be coming home in a seat on a plane. You'd be coming home in a box. In 'The Broken Puppet' we learn more about 'The Book' Khales who was supposedly Bishop's first girlfriend who out of the blue disappeared And a new character Daemon who is closely connected to Madi and is part of 'The Lost Boys' And still humming away in the background is the disappearance of Tillie who we met in the first book. I kind of devoured Book#1 which basically threw me over a cliffy and I kind of need answers, one clicked the boxset so yay to binge reading!! So much is packed into these books, my mind is all over the place, all questions I need answers to, just keep piling up!! We’re very similar to Madi in a sense, because just like her we’re trying to piece everything together to understand the world she’s learning about just like us, chapter by chapter. 🧩Puzzle piece by puzzle piece. Like we’re moving through a blanket of fog. And then yet another cliffy that has left me reeling in it’s wake, rubbing my eyes wondering wtf I’d just read!! Book by Book anticipation races through my body, darkness is building up in the background, you can feel it getting darker and darker. Lies are slowing getting revealed, book by book. Information is coming at us more freely but we're still left with so many questions. This author has done a brilliant job at keeping us readers on our toes. Like a carrot dangled in front of our noses just giving us a piece to keep us invested in the series, keeping us coming back for more. Like a yoyo my mind is scrambled with all the information that's been thrown at it, but through it all we see a softer side of Bishop peak through and I love seeing the transformation compared to the first book. Now onto the next book!!

The book ends on yet another cliffhanger and I honestly don't think I really learned anything from this book. There were one or two big reveals but other than that I just feel like there is so much left to learn about these characters. I'm actually a little nervous for the next book since I don't want all the answers to just be crammed into the conclusion with little explanation. Don't get me wrong, there was a lot I liked about this story, and that's why this review is so difficult. This book still had my attention from very early on and stole my breath on more than one occasion. I'm also really enjoying these characters, even though most of them are more than a little unhinged. It's that crazy aspect of the story that had me captivated and always wondering what was going to happen next. Overall, this isn't my favorite book in the series but I still highly recommend that you pick up these books. The characters will have you wide-eyed and gripping your Kindle as you scream in your head "this can't be happening!" It will make you question everything and have you on the literal edge of your seat, trying to get closer to all the answers.

She's the missing link. She's a liability. She's a weapon. And she's in mortal danger as her destiny has been marked and re-written from the past generations... "The Silver Swan is, in old times, what they would call a tarnished being. Every girl born into the first nine is a tarnished being. It's no place for a her." If she thought the very reveal of the secret would clear the facts of her life, she's mistaken. It only threw her on the more dangerous path, where she can trust no one and even her own sanity is torn with doubts, and more questions without any answers, she's a pawn to the higher game, a game she can't control, and a game she's unlikely to win... "They used me as their puppet. Now I'm broken." But her short lived escape from the Kings' clutches, only stirred more comotions as she's torn again with the feels towards the very King himself, Bishop Vincent Hayes and somehow the stakes and odds are slightly changing, or we are only hinted to believe so, as Bishop plays his cruel game of control and demand. "You never put me back together properly. You steal parts of me, so when you do put me back, i'm all crooked, cracked and still visibly broken." "Because being broken is how you're going to survive this life, Madison. There are more secrets surficing, there are even more questions asked and the danger of realisation that the game is not really a game but a hidden ploy of secret order. The one that will conduct the merciless rules and follow was written. But Bishop himslef and Madison will not only find out the burried truths of their pasts but the betrayal that hits them both leaves everything open, and with more fuckin questions... So, I honestly believed that I would get more answers, and just when I got the hang of it, or well, at least I thought I did, I got swept away with more angst and anticipation, more adrenaline and mystery...even though book 1 was a "shocker" filled with rush and speed and suspensful action, the second book had parts that were distracting me from the essence of the story but then it pulled through as a complete and total stunner. So my first exclamation - "Son of a bitch!!!!" - was right on point! Amo, you did it again You stirred the pot, left me high pumpin on adrenaline and then threw me to the abyss of a fuckin anticipation!!! AGAIN! WTF?! What the actual fuck?! God damn woman! God damn!!! *insert devious eyebrow lift* ***ARC kindely provided in exchange for an honest review***

    OMG. If she wanted answers so badly why didn't she just read the damn book?! Literally everyone is telling her to read it to learn more, but noooo lets bitch about how everyone is keeping secrets. If it were me I would have demolished the book in one sitting.

    Oh my word, I forget how whiny some heroines can be. Madison took the cake for the whiniest and stupidest heroine I have read this year. I rolled my eyes way too many times to keep track of exactly just how many. But first, if you know how important a book is, you read that shit and finish it. You don't wait days or weeks reading chapter per chapter. I got so pissed when she said she didn't have time. Like gurl everyone was literally asking you what chapter you were up to and you were behind! So Oh my word, I forget how whiny some heroines can be.

She instead whines and whines. Demanding people to tell her the truth instead of finishing the damn book. You have the resources little girl, why can't you make use of them to your advantage? And then of course no one would freakin give her a straight up answer when she asks anything. Fuckity fk. This book was a mess. It tried to merge two worlds - normal and special - but executed it so poorly. So many things happened yet they weren't all that memorable or significant. The blurb was so good, so promising but it did not deliver for me. I finished reading this and when I asked myself what I got from it, I can't think of anything well noting. I mean besides the fact that the heroine is still the only one who doesn't know shit (of course an exception to that is her friend Tate who is just as dumb). Then comes Bishop, Brantley and Nate. Another eye roll. I get that this is not a particularly nice review but it's my personal opinion. I was so FRUSTRATED reading this.

I loved this instalment but Madison you seriously need to start asking the right questions girl. And while I'm at it READ THE BOOK MADI !!!! You've got a book with answers and you don't read it, I'm shaking my head in disbelief here. This girl, god how long does it take you to read one bloody book. And breathe, so now I've got that little tantrum out of the way I'll continue. Despite me wanting to strangle Madi for her sheer stupidy I have to give this the full five stars as I couldn't put it down, I read into the night and before I knew it I was at ninety percent and it was getting light outside. I seriously lost track of time I was so engrossed. So if your expecting answers here, well just don't. The Broken Puppet just throws more disarray into the mix. seriously this story is doing my head in with its serious lack of clarity. Though We are drip fed a few tidbits to keep us hanging in there like why Brantley has got serious beef with Madison, didn't see that one. The Broken Puppet is action-packed and I'm seriously loving the new dynamic that is developing between Madi and Bishop. And that finale, I'm not even sure what occurred there it was so obscure in its intentions. But I'm hooked and intrigued and I will be waiting impatiently for some clarification. So disregarding how much this did my head in I am now gagging for the next book. I really need and want it like now.

I though Jones couldn´t get this story more twisted and full of questions than what already was, but nope, she delivered some intense and darker installment.

Well, holy shit that was a roller coaster ride.

(This review will contain mild spoilers) If I have to start anywhere though, I think I should go and say that this book was way darker and involved a lot of mindfucked stuff than the previous book ( probably the main reason why this is NA and not YA as the first book was ). So I think you should know there are major trigger warnings about this book containing: sexual abuse, rape, graphic violence and child trauma. There´re things that are implied really subtlely/implicitly, but I think is best just give heads up just in case. Riddles dance with death when the words are inked in blood and carved with marrow. So we´re left after book one with Madi and Tatum wanting to run from The Hamptons and the Kings. Madi just witnessed something that changed her whole perpective of not only her dad, but also the Kings and who she is. Running seems like the right choice, but one thing about the Kings, or better said Bishop himself, is that they own everything and she can´t never out run them. Being back to Riverside, will thrown Madi into more of the same antics she experience before, but also into a dangerous dance where the truth hides between the pages of a book and everyone around her, and the main rule: trust no one. They warned me that I was just a pawn in their game-I move when they want me to move, speak when they want me to speak. I just didn´t realize it until now. Madi as a character kinda disappointed me. I thought that after what she went through the first time around she would be more careful about what she did or said, maybe I was expecting her to become more of a badass character regarding to her being calculative and finding information to solve all the damn mysteries about the Kings, who she is and what role she plays into this twisted game. But instead, we got this "badass" impulsive girl who was being sassy and a brat to everyone, yell at all the people that could potentially kill her and didn´t try to actually solve anything, like she just stumble into the truth and that was it. I must say though, that I found interesting how we see developed the trauma and memories she has suppressed since she was a child, and how that give us clues to things that play a bigger role into the whole story. "We´ve all lost our mind, baby, but that´s how we all found each other. We´re all lost, but we´re all lost on the same road." There´re probably 2 main things that annoy the hell out of me about this story. One is related to the fact that Madi´s actions sometimes (like almost every damn chapter tbh) are so incredible stupid and impulsive. She doesn’t take the time think things through, and I mean, after all she’s been through , wouldn’t she be able to know that she needs to play the game better? Like I say in my review of book 1: "her actions were either immature, directed by some twisted needy hormones or just a little out of character". The other thing has to do with a fact that exasperated me the most through the story, and is the one related to The Book (Tacet a Mortuis or Whispers from the Dead), and how almost all the story/valuable information is in the damn book, and how most of time people TELL her that is important she reads the book bc they cant tell her stuff, BUT, instead of taking a whole day to binge-read it, she reads it every other night and just one chapter !!! HOW!! If it would have been me I’d already read the thing 3 times, made notes and highlighted with different colors parts of the book! Like the story would be so different because she would be able to understand or at least be able to have background info about the Kings to gain more info for the answers she needs SMH. I understand tho that it would be really weird having the whole story within this story thrown at us readers, but I just wish Madi would take seriously where she is in this situation and move her pieces smarter than she has so far. "But," I add, stepping forward, "you never put me back together properly. You steal parts of me, so when you do put me back, I´m all crooked, cracked, and still visibly broken." His smile pauses briefly, not enough for me to really catch any meaning behind it. He turns to face me, his eyes locking into mine. "Because being broken is how you´re going to survive this life, Madison" So Bishop, *le sigh*. I´m aware than any normal person would hate him, and even though I still found pretty stupid that Madi still let him so close to her after how he has treated her and what he´s done (even though she doesn´t have much power about that bc he does what he wants), I still couldn´t stop myself from liking him as a character. I think I figured him out better in this book, he still is the intense main alpha, know-it-all and the one basically with all the power and control, but the story gave undertones we hadn´t gotten to see yet and I´m eager to see how they will develop in the next book. I´m deff looking forward his POV in the next installment because I like highly calculative and cold-hearted characters, and this bastard is the King (pun intended) of them. I also think that Madi and Bishop´s chemistry is my favorite. I haven´t seen much books with a hate-love relationship that equals theirs, I like the flirty/sassy/angry banters they shared, at the same time it was nice to see that they do have feelings for each other. Plus, the sexual scenes are kinky af and they go according this whole twisted story, so I think they played out right. When you fall for the devil, make sure you don´t land facedown with his horns stabbed through your heart. I feel tho that there are some fillers and unnecessary parts in this book, but at the same time, we had so many secrets surface that I´m overwhelmed with some information and how that will develop in the next book. (Like (view spoiler)[ Daemon, Katsia, the Lost Boys, what happened to Madi as a child, Brantley, Madi being adopted, having more siblings omg (hide spoiler)] ). But just as we got some truths and answers, we got a hella amount of questions! ((view spoiler)[ wHy is so important Madi reads the book?????!!! // wtf is happening to Tillie?? at first I thought she was pregnant and went into hiding bc of something like that bc she was sick, but then her appearing and Bishop letting her has me like "WHAT ARE YOU HIDIN?" // also miss Winters tho, did something happened to her? how does she know stuff? // Khales? like I didn´t believe she was dead tbh, but I also though she wasn´t part of the whole game so there´s more to it // the whole thing of Madi being adopted need an explanation, does Daemon know he has brothers?? why isn´t him a King? like is said he didn´t have what´s neccessary, but what does that mean? also the whole voices in the scene Madi was shot, does it mean he has voices in his head? // HOW DOES THE BOOK END?! please Madi, go freaking read the book!! *Im sure Im missing some questions but give me a break the book left me with whiplash (hide spoiler)] ) "...but let me tell you this, Silver," he whispers so harshly into my ear. "When you know all there is to know about this-they will kill you." Overall, this was a fast paced story, with a pretty intense and twisted storyline, full with mystery and secrets that kept me on edge until the end. I´m so ready for book 3 because I need all the answers and to know what happens next!!

Not so much that we feel like all the questions are answered, but just enough to make me even more addicted. Bishop was even more of an enigma in the book. Similarly to Madison, I want to kill him one moment and “fuck the life out of him” the next. LOLOL The book is sexy, dark, gritty, and as much of an enigma as it’s main character. I’m off to finish book 3 and then rock in corner until book 4 is released. Wish me luck!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. HUH??? OK... So so so confused. I think it had been too long since I read the first part of this crazy story. This whole book pissed me off. Mostly because the poor heroine is being manipulated by everyone and being told half truths on a constant basis. What makes this really irritating is that the heroine has the tools to answer these question in her room, but... She doesn't fucking read it!!! She leaves for two months and doesn't read it still!! And that alone makes the whole story wobble into HUH??? OK... So so so confused. I think it had been too long since I read the first part of this crazy story. This whole book pissed me off.

And that alone makes the whole story wobble into a world of "what the hell" moments. Unfortunately the author created so many inconsistent holes in this world, that it totally makes no sense!! - Like I said, the heroine doesn't bother to read the book that would give her some answers!! - Imagine finding out you have a twin!!! Wouldn't you totally spend hours talking and getting to know them and compare notes on each others lives??? Well our heroine brings him into her home and she barely speaks to him, he's like an after thought!! The author doesn't bother to integrate him into her the story. Only in spurts. Then there's a mini chapter written from his POV. HUH?!! - The heroine doesn't hound her father for answer. Her father doesn't seem to give two shits about her. Even when she gets shot!!! - Whatever happened to her supposedly being a sacrificial lamb? - If she likes shooting, why does she never carry a gun if her life is in constant danger? - The book has no real sense of what is going on. What season is it? What semester?? She leaves for two months and returns and has no issues academically?? - These kids (teens) completely act like adults. There's no accountability for their actions. And the kind of sex they are having is way over the top for their age. I would not recommend this to YA group. Furthermore, the heroine's long lost memories of sexual abuse are resurfacing. I doubt she would be engaging in the kind of brutality Bishop unleashes on her, considering. Biting, bleeding, choking? really?? And all this the night she returns from hospital after she was shot, really? I thought the sex scene was WAY out of left field inappropriate and ugly! It made me dislike Bishop a LOT. A little tenderness would have been nice. There's badass Alpha dangerous, then there's brutal unkind asshole. I found Bishop was the later.

    I don't think I've ever encountered a book that made absolutely no sense and kept teasing its audience with no answers. The fact that Madison keeps receiving hints from the people around her who keep telling her to read a book and that she mysteriously knows more if she can just remember frustrates me to no end. I DNFed this way too late at 75% since nothing happens. The fact that there's a 3rd book after this is mind boggling in addition to the positive reviews.

I don't think I've ever disliked a book so much.

    72% DNF ... I could force myself to continue reading BUT I won't. IDK if I'll finish it one day. That day is not today. I'm at a point where I don't really care what happens to these characters. I feel the story is ALL OVER THE PLACE

    After book one I rushed to start book two. And Oh my world!!! This author loves to play devils advocate with her characters. This world with the elite kings is changing and getting crazy. She finds out she’s a Silver Swan. But now that she knows what will happen? So many unanswered questions and it is all leading to book three. This is a very suspenseful story with so many dark secrets. Love love her sex scenes with Bishop King. The banter between herself and Nate her stepbrother is cray cray!

We’re all lost, but we’re all lost on the same road.” "I’m taking him down, but I won’t complain if he goes down with his face buried between my thighs. May as well enjoy it while it’s happening." What a ride! I am pretty hooked on this series now. Can't get enough. And as a reminder... this is NOT young adult. Not even close. It's new adult dark romance with erotica elements. I don't even know where to begin. The Broken Pu “We’ve all lost our mind, baby, but that’s how we all found each other. We’re all lost, but we’re all lost on the same road.” "I’m taking him down, but I won’t complain if he goes down with his face buried between my thighs. May as well enjoy it while it’s happening." What a ride! I am pretty hooked on this series now. Can't get enough. And as a reminder... this is NOT young adult. Not even close. It's new adult dark romance with erotica elements. I don't even know where to begin. The Broken Puppet picks up mere moments after the ending of The Silver Swan. I didn't expect the story to begin the way it did, but it was entertaining nonetheless albeit Bishop, Nate, and Brantley less. As in the first book, there are certain triggers (abuse, murder, sexual explicit scenes, adult language) There was just something missing with this book -- it lacked what I loved in the first book -- a deeply dark and disturbing mood/ atmosphere. Granted it's still dark and disturbing but I missed the seductive element. "His stare is always intense; it makes me want to look away, but I’m afraid I won’t feel it again. I want to feel it for as long as I can. Soak it up, bathe in it, swim in it. Now I sound crazy, but maybe I am." There were plot twists that I didn't see coming. Madison really needs to read that darn book. EVERYONE IS TELLING HER TO. Girl, make the time! OUR BOY BISHOP IS CATCHING THE FEEEEEELS.. and god, it's everything I want to see. I love every single scene that Nate is in. The Elite Kings continue to be liars, cheaters, and manipulators. No one wants to give answers. There are some new players in the game who have no problem dropping these truth bombs... which were intense revelations. "Maybe when it comes to him, he brings out the dark, crazy side of me that I’ve always suppressed by being the quiet girl. Because he gives me confidence, all the confidence I need to tackle or do anything, and that’s lethal." Madison is such a boss babe!!! Keep picking yourself up. Keep straightening that crown. Keep fighting for your control and your freedom. Keep fighting to heal that broken part of yourself. And for the love of all things holy, READ THE DAMN BOOK.

This is a dark YA romance novel- one that has lots of sex, swearing, and even talk of sexual abuse. This book isn't suitable for younger teens so make sure to only read it if you are above the age of 18. I can't say much about this book because it would be a total spoiler for those who haven't read the first book. I will say though that this is a good series. It doesn't read like a YA novel either. Had the author not used a high school as part of the setting I would have believed these kids were older. They just don't act their age. This is a dark series, one that is a complete mindfuck, and one that will leave readers anxious for the next installment. Thankfully, book 3 is available now and I plan on diving into it as fast as I can so I can finally get some answers. If you like dark and original novels I recommend this series. Just be sure to keep an open mind and read it in order. None of the books are standalones and the first two end on wicked cliffhangers!

    3.5 stars. I´m not really sure how to rate this one. In some ways I found it really good and then in others it felt too unrealistic considering the main character´s age. But the story is very interesting and I like it, I just need to try to look past the age "thing", but that does take my rating down though.

    Book 2 is definitely better than the first one. Mind you there is still chaos and the plot doesn’t run flawlessly but despite some shortfalls the story sucks you in and makes you want to stay. This is the major winning point of this author, I was glued to my kindle and could easily overcome some wrongs, holes and contradictions in the plot as well as some discrepancies in the characters. In book two we finally get some answers albeit murky and they give way to even more questions, which, mind yo Book 2 is definitely better than the first one.

The second instalment finishes on a cliffhanger way harsher than book one and I’m glad book three is already there waiting. I’m not keen on cliffy and I try my hardest to wait for a full series to be out before start reading but I made the mistake to start this thinking it was a trilogy and I’m already itching because I know by the time I’m done with the the books already out I won’t be anywhere near the end... This is the first work I read by this author but I noticed the releases weren’t so close to each other and I wished I had done a thorough research before going in but alas I’m in too deep to stop now. Hats off to Amo Jones for pulling me in and facing the cliffhanger from hell when I get there. If you’re like me and have cliffhanger issues I’d totally recommend to wait for the whole series to be out before facing the madness 😉

    Damn! This book was just as good as the first. There is a lot happening and there are times I really really wanted to slap Madi!!! I need her to toughen up and stop making stupid decisions, don't get me wrong I do like her though. This might make me crazy but I love Bishop and the Kings. We get to see why Brantley hates Madi so much and damn that about broke my heart. The ending ... well yeah I am on to the next book!!

    ***FULL REVIEW*** There a couple things I need you to understand. In order to love these books, there has to be a bit of suspension of belief. The things these teens do is unrealistic, but it is fiction. These boys have been raised as elites with no limitations and absentee parents from a young age. This is Dark and violent, even the most intimate moments between Bishop and Madi are laced with violence, but it works for her and them. It doesn’t lessen what they have but enhances who Amo Jones has ***FULL REVIEW*** There a couple things I need you to understand.

I often find the darker and more depraved the better, because while there is still violence and other depraved acts, these people still have their limitations, although few. The story had me captivated but did leave me with just as many questions as when I started the book. The ending I had to reread like 10 times because I just couldn’t. I will be anxiously awaiting the final book in this trilogy. I need to know all the answers, to see how it all plays out, and to see these two get an HEA, even if it is of the twisted variety.

    Puppet's Memories are King's games......... Wow just Wow. The Broken Puppet start off right where the Silver Swan left off with Madison and Tatum leaving. This book has everything from the first book and more. All the secrets, lies, manipulation, distrust, and loyalty. The Elite Kings tactics In trying to get Madison to remember is scary at best. Bishop and Nate wants to keep her safe but she has to put her trust into the King's and that's just dangerous. Amo knows how to keep you intrigued with Puppet's Memories are King's games.........

    3.5 to 4 Stars. I immediately purchased this book after finishing The Silver Swan. I am torn on this review as I am very close to giving it a higher rating of 4.5-5 stars, but I'm holding back only because I didn't really get into the book until about 60% in. The first 40% of this book almost had me to DNF- which I never really do. For me, and this is only my opinion, the beginning of the book seemed very farfetched. I know this is fiction, and as authors we can play around a lot with fiction. I 3.5 to 4 Stars. I immediately purchased this book after finishing The Silver Swan.

I know this is fiction, and as authors we can play around a lot with fiction. I do not want to give any spoilers, but it just seemed too unrealistic that 2 teenage girls were able to accomplish what they did at the very beginning of the book, with no real consequences too. Moving past that, I did enjoy the fact that Madison grew a little backbone in this book. She started demanding answers and starting getting them a little. She wasn't quite the doormat she was in The Silver Swan and it was good to see her character growing in this manner. Bishop is still the controlling, practically verbally abusive jerk he was in book one, but he's starting to show he has a softer side- and that softer side is Madison. You get to see glimpses of his playfulness with her (in between him saying "you get my dick hard") and he started growing on me- I can admit that. As for the other characters, I always like Nate, Tatum is becoming less likable in my opinion, and now we have a little mystery and suspense floating around some other characters- which I loved. Amo Jones has weaved a story that is keeping me intrigued- even if I'm not that crazy about all the characters. Book three is pre-ordered.

    Wow, this book is all sorts of twisted. But there isn't very much information. It all leaves you asking more questions and its driving me crazy.

    ARC RECEIVED!! Whoa the amount of fuckery this book has is mind blowing. Amo strikes again and she didn't come to play. Well written and very very interesting. Don't know how this woman plots her stories but she's one hell of a plot twister. Be prepared for twisted on a new high. My gaawd this book was like a person with multi personalities, complicated and mysterious yet very much collected and calculated.If this book was a person I would have crushed so hard on it and maybe found my soul mate.

My gaawd this book was like a person with multi personalities, complicated and mysterious yet very much collected and calculated.If this book was a person I would have crushed so hard on it and maybe found my soul mate. I was so engrossed with one thing next thing I know I'm onto another, there is nothing simple about it book,is that even possible? simply can't keep up with this book and the fucked up part is I really do understand and I was being well lead into this whole fuckery. It just made sense. It also make total sense now after Silver Swan. I had so many unanswered questions from SS, wondering how will this story turn out, so many theories running through my head, I even ended up creating my own twisted version of the story lol and now after BP it kind of opened my eyes to a lot of shits from SS and it given me a glimpse of what's to happen next despite all the crazy shits that has happened already. I love how Amo really based this book mostly about what's behind The book "Tacet a Mortuis" and its connection to Madison and also less sex,don't get me wrong I love a good hot fuck,but to me with this book there's so much more to it,I think it has the perfect amount of sex in it too. This is the kind of story that's really intimidating and intriguing you just can't help devouring it, kind of mysterious at the same time and slowly creeps into your head and mess it up,twisted and mind fucking . Bishop still fucking hot as hell as well as Nate. Madison was still so perfect and bad ass but Tatum always gets me with her sassiness. It was a freaking blast. I can't wait for the next one to come. I still don't agree with some of the shits going on here but I know Amo is just fucking with me so I'll let it slide. Loved every minute of this story and looking foward for so much more. Read this,you won't regret it!!!!!!
