There Are No Saints by Sophie Lark

After being disappointed by Haunting Adeline, I ventured deeper into dark, stalker romance and found There Are No Saints by Sophie Lark. Now this is what I was looking for. This is a dark, stalker romance! Cole was a pretty hot male protagonist and definitely not a hero. He is

Haunting Adeline by HD Carlton

Haunting Adeline by HD Carlton is the turning point in my taking any recommendations from TikTok. I was so incredibly underwhelmed. This was marketed as incredibly dark with a sexy male character and a female protagonist that isn’t an idiot. Well, it was all a bunch of lies. Now, I

We are getting straight into this review for Twisted Kingdom by Rina Kent. No introductory paragraph. Just me, telling you, this is a DARK romance and the final book in the trilogy of Aiden and Elsa, so be warned of spoilers. This was a PERFECT FIVE STAR ROMANCE. The PERFECT

Steel Princess by Rina Kent

The second I finished Deviant King, I picked up Steel Princess by Rina Kent because I NEEDED to know what happened next. Caution, this might have spoilers for Deviant King as this is book 2 in that trilogy. This continues to be a DARK romance with bully tendencies but the

Satan’s Affair by HD Carlton

I’m gonna be honest with you. I picked this up as an audiobook and I think that really colored a lot of what I disliked about Satan’s Affair by HD Carlton. A friend and I decided we were going to read Haunting Adeline to see what all the hype was

Deviant King by Rina Kent

After reading and enjoying Cruel King, I thought okay, let’s see if Deviant King by Rina Kent can continue building and live up to its predecessor. When I tell you I went absolutely FERAL, you have no idea. Deviant King was on a completely different level to Cruel King. The

Cruel King by Rina Kent

Now, I’ve never been into bullymance. I never thought I’d enjoy that subgenre because why do I want to read about a man tearing his love interest down but also say he loves her? Then, I read Cruel King by Rina Kent and my entire opinion changed. She has me

Shattered Obsession by Tina Spencer

Dark billionaire romance with a splash of hockey? Yes please and thank you! Shattered Obsession by Tina Spencer ticked so many of my romance boxes, I could not wait to delve in. Be wary, though – this DOES end in a cliffhanger.

Brutal by AJ Merlin

When I say I like dark romance, Brutal by AJ Merlin is what I mean. There’s great spice, an intense relationship, and folks with some messed up ideas of what is wrong/right/sexy. I honestly 100% recommend this read to anyone that is okay with the kinks featured. It was really

The Devil’s Bargain by Carin Hart

“The Devil’s Bargain” by Carin Hart stands out as a BookTok recommendation that truly delivers. With well-suited characters, a tried-and-true narrative, and a satisfying twist, this dark romance redeems the author after a lackluster experience with “No One Has To Know.” The chemistry between Linc and Ava, along with their

No One Has To Know by Carin Hart

Despite the BookTok allure, “No One Has to Know” by Carin Hart left me disappointed. Pacing issues and an unexpected twist at the end undermined the dark romance narrative. The characters lacked depth, and the romantic elements felt uninspiring. Recommend skipping this one and trying Hart’s other works.
