Happy Release Day ~ GRIEVOUS by JM Darhower #5stars
HITTING KINDLES TODAY
(Scarlet Scars #2)
Once upon a time, there was a girl who stopped believing in fairy tales after her innocence was stolen.
Morgan Myers is tired. So damn tired. Most people either push her around or brush her off, and she’s not putting up with it anymore. Determined to reclaim the life that had been stolen from her, she puts her trust in the last person she ever expected to: the notorious Scar. Morgan sees a side of him that few people seem to know–the man, not the myth. Lorenzo. And what she sees, she likes, a lot more than she thought she would.
But fairy tales aren’t real, as life likes to remind her. Some dragons, you just can’t slay, no matter how hard you fight them. And when hers comes back around, breathing fire, she’s forced to face some unimaginable horrors. But lucky for Morgan, there’s a white knight in combat boots out there that isn’t afraid of monsters.
You see, it’s impossible to be afraid of something you face every day in the mirror.

I need a moment to catch my breath. GRIEVOUS was everything I had hoped for and more. I’ve been anxiously waiting for this second part knowing that Ms. Darhower was going to blow this out of the water. I never doubt her abilities to write the best dark books out there.
If you’re wondering what kind of work our anti-hero, Lorenzo, does he has summed it up for us:
“We bribe a bunch of motherf*ckers to look the other way as we funnel the good sh*t in from Cuba. I deal with our connections and handle the money. Three distributes the inventory, while Seven makes sure I keep my head on straight through it all. Eye on the prize. The rest of the guys, well, they mostly do the brunt work, and it pays pretty damn good, so they don’t complain.”
Morgan’s ‘job’ is just surviving and staying out of trouble while Lorenzo tries to solve her situation. The thing is Morgan does what Morgan wants. She’s survived a long time on her own so she’s not just going to start taking orders from anyone.
“And I thought I told you to stay out of trouble. I even asked nicely.“ ~Lorenzo
“Yeah, well, the trouble with trouble is that it doesn’t always look like trouble, Lorenzo.” ~Morgan
‘This was very obviously trouble, woman.” ~Lorenzo
I love that Morgan never shied away from Lorenzo. At times Lorenzo was unpredictable and claimed to be allergic to feelings but that never stopped Morgan from continuing to keep him on his toes.
Holy moly, the twist in this book had my jaw on the floor. I wish I could say more about it but you’ll see when you read the book. Just be ready to say – WTF.
I got all choked up reading the ENDING because it was so EPIC. It squeezed at my heart and made my eyes feel watery.
I love this dark, sexy and at times a funny read. An intense and emotional read that will you leave flipping pages as fast as you can to see how it all ends.
