How well can you ever really know someone?

Mommy DearestMommy Dearest by Willow Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

You can really get to know someone in thirty days.
– Just ask Morgan Spurlock.

The faces that people show to the world are not always the same faces that look into our eyes when no one else is around – the ones trying to melt our soul with a mere glance.
I’m speaking generally, of course.
BUT… if my now mother-in-law would have come to stay with me and The Dark Defender way back when… I seriously would have just shot myself. I’d love to tell you that we’re now best of friends all these years later – but my lies smell like a fart in a car, so I’m not even going to try. (We’re getting a lot better with our face to face time though!)

Crystal is hoping to have a very different experience.
Her soon-to-be mother-in-law is coming to stay for a whole month, and she hopes that they’ll really be able to bond during that time. So what if she is just finding out what a mama’s boy her fiance is? Why should it bother her that they don’t speak English when they’re talking around her? She is just imagining those smug, self satisfied sneers coming from Mommy Dearest across the dinner table… right?

One month. That’s enough time to learn their habits, and get used to their quirks. It might even be enough time for everyone to start showing their real selves to one another…

Good luck, Crystal!

Mass Hysteria
from #MichiganMadman Michael Patrick Hicks grabs 4 of 5 stars 

Mass Hysteria

Stargazing turns into a battle for survival after a freak, alien meteor shower causes everyone, and everything in Falls Breath to go bat-shit crazy (O.o)

I’m usually not much of a sci-fi fan, but this was a fast, furious, and fun read right from page one!

Optical Delusion (Mail Order Massacres)

Optical Delusion by Hunter Shea
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Optical Delusion centers around a gag-gift, ordered from the back of comic book, that begins to consume a man’s life.
Martin can’t stop peeking – but, for him, it’s all in the name of science! ::dramatic eye roll:: The fun is long over when Martin realizes that he has taken peeping too far, and there are just some things just can’t be unseen.

I love how Hunter Shea builds the story up!

You can feel the main characters inner conflict & turmoil in the beginning, but his desire to see more soon overrides any sense of guilt he may have once had.
It’s so much fun riding along as Martin loses his grip, and slides faster & further down that slippery slope!
I know I’d be in the same boat, My need to poke my nose into everything is already out of control – having x-ray specs would turn me into a fa-reak!

Matt Shaw’s 200th Kindle Release!

Published July 22, 2017 by Shadow Girl

A new horror to sink your teeth into...

The

TASTE

of the food he’d cooked her was divine. When she told him, over their many online messages, what her favourite three course meal was – she never expected him to cook it for her and yet, that was exactly what he had done. Sitting opposite her, he watched her enjoy every mouthful despite not wanting any food for himself. A man content with the glass of red before him: A liquid dinner. Normally she would feel uncomfortable with a relative stranger watching her eat, but the food was so good that she didn’t care. Anyway, she knew this was her treat… Just as what he had coming for himself – as soon as she was done eating – would be his treat, not that he hurried her to finish. He was happy to wait. He knew

all good things come to those who wait

Have you read PLENTY OF FREAKS? OMG, Poor Matt could have ended up in so many of his stories!

To meTASTE feels like a re-imagining of the 2001 ‘Love Cannibalism’ case involving Armin Meiwes & Bernd Brandes.   Details on THAT are below… heh heh heh…

Like the rest of the White Cover collection, this short story is intended for those who want a quick read before bed, or members of Kindle Unlimited. If you’re looking for something longer, please try any of the Black Cover Range.

Warning: Strong sexual content.

See below for details on Armin Meiwes & Bernd Brandes –

Friendship, betrayal, makeovers, and… revenge!

Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood by Eileen Cook
★  5 of 5 stars

Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood

I don’t know if Eileen Cook will appreciate my #MichiganMadmen, or #HometownHorror tags, so I’ll start her off slowly with #HometownAuthors.
Revenge is a tricky thing
No, this is not one from my normally blood-soaked bookshelf, but I saw it, wanted it, read it – and I’m happy I did, it was fun!
The Count of Monte Cristo meets Mean Girls❞

I added a couple more of her titles to my TBR – check her out 🙂

Kink: A Tale of Extreme Horror by The Barns Brothers

Published July 10, 2017 by Shadow Girl

NEW from #TheButcherBrothers


KINK is brought to you by Crowley Barns:
The long-depraved but newly-published Barns Brother.

CAUTION: EXTREME HORROR CONTAINED WITHIN
There is bloody violence, gore and sexual content contained within this twisted story. Consider yourself warned.

Cassie and Rich have been texting for a few days, and now it’s time to meet.
No commitments, no strings. Just one afternoon of rough, and kinky fun.
She has a very detailed fantasy, and she knew Rich was the guy to fulfill her every dark, twisted, and violent desire.

HOW WRONG COULD IT GO?

Her text told him to arrive at 4:15.
Not 4:14. Not 4:16. Exactly 4:15.
All of her instructions were very… precise, (read: anal). But, you gotta love a girl who knows what she wants! Playing the aggressor in a violent fantasy with a smokin’ hot, older woman sounds freakin’ HOT – Rich just hopes he can immerse himself into her fantasy completely.

How can one compulsively planned & timed afternoon go to shit so fast? How did things get so terribly, darkly, and disturbingly fucked up?

Never give one person your complete trust. Ever. 

I just have one very small … ‘issue’ with KINK – 
I started the book expecting a demented and fucked up ‘killer’/‘murderer’ story,
but it took a kind of ‘sci-fi’ or ‘creature horror’ turn at one point.
In any other story, I’d usually be pissed. But, I got into it, it worked, and I liked it!

 Warren, Crowley, and Davey are The Barns Brothers (#TheButcherBrothers)
Authors of Extreme Horror, Sex & Violence, gut-wrenching Tales with a Twist, and Murderous Plots.

KINK is published by Broken Barn Publishing and can be found on Amazon, and Goodreads
You can stalk The Barns Brothers on Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, and Twitter
Crowley Barns is on Goodreads & Twitter
The cover art is by Warren Barns, and you can find him on Goodreads & Facebook
Davey is… hiding – for now.

 

psstt… hey… Crowley… What’s your pen name?

Chaturbate’s Castrations: A Tale of Sex and Horror by Matt Shaw

Published July 10, 2017 by Shadow Girl

CHATURBATE:
1: A blend of the words “chat” and “masturbate”.   2: The act of masturbating while chatting online.  3: A website for both of the above.
4:  The new extreme horror from Matt Shaw that pushes the boundaries of taste & decency.

 

They logged in for the show. They didn’t expect to be the star.

Bunni’s webcam site needs a boost in numbers. More viewers, and more tips. But, she already offers it all, doesn’t she?  Exhibitionism, role-play, daddy-play…
Then it hits her – people are always looking for harder, and darker.  She needs to show her viewers just how hard, and dark she can get! 
(Once she figures it out, that is!)
With the help of one regular viewer, Bunni is preparing to put on a show like she’s never done before. She loses any, and all inhibitions once she finds the right head-space – she might even enjoy this! One thing is for sure… this is going to be a show that her viewers will never forget.
