Another fantastic read. This is certainly a dark story line and not for wimps. It's gripping and heartbreaking. It's hard to read but you can't put it down. It's so wrong that it's so right. I just can't even. ........... I mean, really i'm struggling to say how amazing it is. And the best part, its not really over. Ooops. Spoiler. Roll on Tristan and Chloe's story. Thank you Kelly for your support while I read this 😆😭


Wow, I currently have no nails left on my hand and had to stress eat the entire contents of my fridge. This book was a huge roller coaster ride of emotions. I was so entranced I could not put this book down. When the author tells you this book is dark....believe her. It is dark and emotional. I loved every second of it. Read this book is you are brave. I promise you won't regret it.


So I'm seriously still sitting thinking how I'm even gonna formulate my words for this review! Slaughter is twisted, dark and depraved! Absolutely the best book I've read by Tessier!! I was completely and utterly drawn in from the very first chapter. The world in which Bunny and Avery live is just a darkest nightmare come true! Fantastic book!!!


Pres and Avery. Probably one of the most dysfunctional couples in the book world but holy **** they light it up with their sizzling chemistry. They often say hate is a form of love and this book has it down to a tee. I love a great dark read and this didn't disappoint at all. Not for the faint hearted at all but if you want your world rocked, this will surely do it. It's captivating and emotional but that's the sign of an amazing read. The only thing I would of changed is the excessive name calling to each other but that's just them. I definitely recommend.


This book comes with trigger warning after trigger warning and was, for me, very hard to read. Some scenes I just had to skip over. I like my books dark and angsty, but this was a bit much for me. The story is well written, and easy to follow. If you like twisted, then this is definitely the book for you.


Okay I can finally breathe. I feel like I have been holding my breath for hours. I seriously loved Avery and Presleigh. Even if at times, I felt like it was wrong. I went through the majority of this book with a lump in my throat. It was so good and dark. So good!!!


This book has been hands down one of my favorite reads this year! It's so captivating and enthralling! I couldn't wait to read the whole story while not wanting it to end at the same time!!


We all know how Shantel is with her books and omg this had it all. The dark feels, the emotions.. You had manipulation and heartbreak, throughout but at the end it all worked out for Avery and Presleigh. You want a dark, angsty emotional read, this is your book!


Holy black soul! I literally could not put the book down, I loved every bit of it even when I knew I shouldn’t! Love that I was on the edge of my seat for most of it! If you love dark books, this is one for you. If you don’t normally read dark books, get reading now, you’ll get hooked. Shantel has done it again, I’ll be following her religiously, making sure to grab her books as soon as she writes them. P.S. give me more!!!!


Absolutely amazing! I love me some dark reads but after reading this... I’m questioning my sanity, lol. It’s on fire, it’s hot, twisted, demanding and dark. Avery is all of the above but I wanted all of his crazy self! Bunny is probably as sick and twisted as I am, hella strong and beautiful! I don’t know how she does dark but she does dark in a sexy way! I couldn’t put it down and I’m glad I didn’t. Read it, you won’t be disappointed!!



My name is Avery Decker, and my story isn’t for the faint of heart. It is about revenge and hatred, misery and violence. I wasn’t always this way even though it was in my blood. I grew up happy and in love with my best friend until she betrayed me and walked away. After that, I fell into the deep, dark world I was meant for.

Presleigh Clarke's actions turned me into the ruthless man I am today. Too bad for her, I believe people should pay for the things they have done. The more painful and messy, the better. I get off on making people bleed. It feeds my inner demon, and right now, he is starving. She crossed me once, so now she’ll know what it’s like to fear me. But not all stories end the way you think they will … mine certainly didn’t.
