Losing my innocence at thirteen, in the most brutal way, changed me. My kidnapper stole my childhood and tried to break me. The knowledge my father orchestrated the entire situation hardened my heart, and instead of grieving his death, I celebrated it.

One down. Many more to go.

My burning need for revenge has only grown over the years, keeping me focused on my goals and enabling my rise to power.

Made men are weak. A pretty face and the promise of a good time easily distracts them.

Now, Iโ€™m in charge.

Men bow before ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ.

Except for ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฎโ€”the brother of my abductor. Massimo fights me every step of the way, but Iโ€™m not about to let the explosive chemistry between us deter me from my chosen path. His family is my enemy. ๐˜๐˜ฆ is my enemy, even if he doesnโ€™t know it yet.

I wonโ€™t stop until all those who wronged me are punished.

By the time they realize Iโ€™m coming, it will be too late.

They tried to take everything from me.

But where they failed, I will succeed.

Unless ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ becomes ๐˜ฎ๐˜บ weakness.

My Review

Holy Freaking Moly!! This is truly a masterpiece the likes of which I have never read anything quite like before. Siobhan Davis delivers her most remarkable and unforgettable story to date!! I absolutely love how she has really got into her writing groove when it comes to writing dark mafia romance but this story was something even more uniquely unexpected. I went in fully expecting it to be flipping amazing. But amazing doesnโ€™t even begin to capture just how phenomenal this story truly was.ย 

An unforgettable heroine with a past so devastating and tragic I was shook but couldnโ€™t step away because this story was so addictive and I was beyond immersed in Catarinaโ€™s story. I couldnโ€™t put this book down. I had to know what happened that made her who she is and why she was the way she is now as an adult. How she became the very embodiment of revenge and retaliation. I love how her character is written. How she encompasses everything throughout her journey, hurt and heart, hatred and healing. Sheโ€™s complex and all consuming and so well written. Unlike any character from any book I have ever read before. Totally unique and one I will not soon forget.ย 

Massimo is the perfect man for her. He saw her for what she was and wanted her to see herself as he did. He wanted her to see him as the perfect King to her Queen. He was just enough Alpha and strong but at the same time patient and firm but not cruel. He knew just how to handle her. The chemistry between these two was utterly explosive. Iโ€™m trying not to give anything specific away here as that is not nice in my opinion. The deliciousness is in the details my friends and let me tell you this author spared NO.ATTENTION.TO.DETAILS and I will let her deliver those to you with her words in this wonderful book. It was IMO perfection!ย 

If you need a fantastically fabulous book to kick start your summerโ€ฆ Vengeance of a Mafia Queen has it all.

Sabotage Release Blitz & Review

Sabotage, an all-new darkly depraved and enthralling romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now! 


Raylee Lexington Adams is my stepsister and the one woman in the world who can make my blood boil.

Sheโ€™s vindictive, a lot of crazy, and absolutely stunning.

I hate everything about her except for when sheโ€™s on her knees begging me to use her as my own personal toy.

Weโ€™ve been playing a game of cat and mouse for far too long. We have used each other for our own sick pleasure.

Iโ€™ve ruined every relationship my little princess has ever had. A sure way that sheโ€™ll come crawling back to me, begging me for what only I can give her when another man fails her.

But I got tired of watching others get a piece of what is mine. So, I did what any rational man would doโ€”I staked my claim, showed the world that she belonged to me, and Iโ€™m going to do whatever it takes to make her believe it too. 


Colton Remington Knox is a man I despise but canโ€™t say no to.

Heโ€™s what any girl would call a walking red flag. But Iโ€™ve never claimed to be a smart woman when it comes to men. Why should he be any different?

Iโ€™ve always managed to hold my own against him. But this time, heโ€™s gone too far. Posting a video of me on my knees for him, for what? To brag? Embarrass me? Heโ€™s acting like he doesnโ€™t know me very well.

Colt wants to play a game? Iโ€™ll do whatever it takes to make sure I win. No matter what it costs me. People already think I have no dignity, so why let them down now?

My Review


Shantel, My Sinful Shockfactor Queen!!

You have done it again! Sabotage is delightfully dirty and devastatingly depraved from the opening scene. Itโ€™s unforgettable and completely consuming with its explosive chemistry and intoxicating mixture of anger, hatred, revenge, and even provocative love.ย 

Raylee and Colton have what is considered a taboo relationship. They also have a very much Hate/Hate relationship for most of the book, and thatโ€™s what makes it so tantalizingly toxic. ๐Ÿ–ค But I also happen to think the line between hate and love is very thin. Plus we are dealing with two people who are not very good at sharing and are most definitely very jealous and possessive and can be very over the top about it.  Plus can you imagine having it bad for someone you canโ€™t have?! Doesnโ€™t forbidden fruit always taste the sweetest? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

What I love about these characters is that they are unapologetic about who they are and what they each bring to the table when they are together. Unapologetic in how they fight with and for and about each other. Which I happened to think was hot, so dang hot. ๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿ”ฅ Raylee is a tough cookie and she likes what she likes. I mean she knows how she may be looked at by others but she just chucks in the I donโ€™t give frogs fat fanny bucket and and moves on and gets hers. I envy that part of her. To be that free in that way. Colt just does it for me. I admit I’m a little twisted. Colt and all the craziness and twisted turns he will bring your way. What a ride you have coming for you.This book has so much mind blowing going on. Iโ€™m still processing. Yaaasss!

OMG!  There arenโ€™t words that can describe to you how hot these scenes are. Shantel has a gift, the mind of the money shot. Things you couldnโ€™t have even imagined youโ€™d want to read but you are instantly insanely obsessed over. She will push you out of your comfort zone, test your boundaries and have you questioning your own desires. Iโ€™m absolutely amazed by all the ways in which She manages to captivate us all with the words at the tips of her talented little fingers.  Phenomenal job!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

So in closingโ€ฆ

I am not going to give anything specific about this book away because I despise spoilers. If you have any concerns please read the 

โš ๏ธโš ๏ธTRIGGER WARNINGSโš ๏ธโš ๏ธ at the beginning of the book. 

If you donโ€™t have triggers Go.In.Blind! It will give you the best reading experience ever! 

Here is MY TWO CENTS! 

Pearl Clutchers BEWARE! 

If you are easily shocked, you need to beware too! 

If you are prone to use statements like โ€˜Oh myโ€ or โ€œ Well I Declareโ€ youโ€™re gonna have issues as well!ย 

If sick, twisted, sinful and deviant behavior makes you want to gasp in revulsion and tell your best friend Peggy Sue about these Heathens, there is probably another book out there for you. 


Butโ€ฆ My ladies, my people that didnโ€™t bat an eye,  Come to me. Come on over and sit by me on the dark side,  cause itโ€™s time for book club. ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿธ๐Ÿฅƒ๐ŸŒฎ
