Book Review - DOLL FACE by SADIE GRUBOR
See what our reviewers are saying about Doll Face
This book isn't at all what you think it is. It's more! It's the first book I've read like this and I'm happy I did. I absolutely loved it! I was behind Mei all the way and Saint grows on you to the point that you just love him. You feel for both of them after they meet. Questions are answered throughout the book just to have more questions than answers at the end. I cannot wait for part two! So glad there is a part two, haha. Oh, Saint and Mei! A must read! I loved it from beginning to end!

What did I just read???
I still don't know what to say about this book. The story is very well written, and even though there are a lot of characters they are fairly easy to keep track of. Several times I caught myself thinking "What the h*ll am I reading?!" But yet, I couldn't put it down. I devoured this book even though some scenes were extremely disturbing. But I had to know who was sending the dolls so I couldn't put it down. This book definitely comes with a trigger warning. I can't stress that enough. I can't call it a love story because Saint is no better than the person sending the dolls. Mei is tough and she tries to so hard, but sometimes she infuriates me. I will be reading the second book. I love the Geisha! She is seriously no joke! I am curious to see what becomes of Mei.

This book was all sorts of messed up goodness.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I read this as I didn’t even read the blurb. The cover had me hooked.There were so many unanswered questions I had throughout this book, some were tied up in this book, and the others will be tied up in book too. This makes me so happy.
I have read dark books before but I think this is up there with my top dark reads.I devoured this book and I cannot wait for book two.
If you have triggers this book isn’t for you as it contains a lot of violence but otherwise I suggest you get on with reading this one asap.

Dark Read But Amazing Read
So personally i haven't read alot of dark romances and when my review group posted this book up it looked interesting so I decided to give it a chance and I'm honestly glad that I did. In the beginning of the book I was somewhat questionable about it and couldn't get into it, but the further I read into the book I actually really started to enjoy reading it and couldn't put it down. The twisted love between Saint and Mei is different and HOT. In the end I was left wondering like OMG WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!?!?!?! I definitely recommend reading this book and I can't wait for the next book in this series!

This wonderfully dark read was amazing and was extremely difficult to put down. The writing was fantastic and the characters are so easy to love. Mei is a twisted badass and Ill be rooting for her all the way! Cannot wait for more!

Hide the sharp objects and prepare your alibi, the Doll Face Series is your newest dark delight. Most kids don't grow up wanting a dead-beat dad. Those kids don't understand how much worse it can truly be. How it feels to grow up wishing your father was a neglectful dead-beat and not a living nightmare. I did. I do. And my safest place is to hide among the monsters. So, that's what I do. I blend into a sea of criminals and the depraved. Any of them are far better company than my father. It's been over two years I've stayed safe, over two years of keeping the balance, over two years of being someone else and living their life. Then he walks through the dark red lacquered doors of my hiding place. His eyes searching, probing, and knowing. Now, this temptation swirls on the tip of my tongue, teasing my taste buds, making me want to confess all my sins to a man who could punish me and free me in the most wonderfully worst ways. This isn't a romance. This isn't a love story. This is primal. This is raw. This is obsession.
Doll Face is a dark erotic tale suitable for ages 18+. This contains DARK subjects. If you require trigger warnings, guaranteed HEAs, are easily turned off by dark subjects, or just have any hard 'limit/requirement for a story, this isn't the book for you (Check out The Falling Stars Series instead). If you like dark subjects, over the top obsessive controlling alpha males, and aren't afraid of how bloody love can truly get... Then enjoy.
