Shantel Tessier ~ Grave ~ Release Blitz / Teasers / ARC Review

Release Date: August 31 

My life went to hell years ago, and I’ve had a death wish since then with fast cars, women, and drugs. They don’t call me Grave for nothing! 
But I do it because I need to feel something… anything. 
What’s life worth living for without the high? 
And then I saw her! 
She’s too good for me, and I should stay away. But like any addict, I switch one drug for another, and I’ll be taking her to hell with me. 
I’m anything but sweet, despite what people think, so when he tells me I’m too good for him and I’m better off without him, I don’t listen. 
My life was simple before Grave stepped through that door, but who wants simple? 
He makes me feel alive. It only took one touch, and I became addicted! 
But therein lies the problem. 
Addiction is Grave’s middle name, and when he tells me he’s taking me to hell with him, I don’t know whether to take that as a threat or a promise!

My ARC Review:

This is the second book from the Dark Kings series, which has been a dark and gritty ride so far in Code of Silence and Titan. This is Grave’s story, the younger of the two brothers in this series. It tackles some hard hitting issues such as drug abuse, illegal gambling and dub con, so be aware.

Grave is a broken man, a man who feels too much, especially after losing his mum and his dad treating him like he was nothing, his older brother being the one his dad preferred. But in Grave’s world, emotions are akin to weakness, so he is always on the hunt for his next adrenaline rush or high. It’s not until April appears in his life that he finds something to live for, to fight for.

April has had a rough life, after losing her mother and taking over her flower shop she has tried her best to be there for her younger brother, but he is going off the rails. She is a courageous, strong and incredibly caring person.

These two fall into a caring relationship, the story is not as dark as Titan was, which was unexpected since Grave is surrounded by his own darkness. April and his loving ways, loving him for who is was, gave him reason to fight and change, but not before he sorts his demons out.

A great read, although I didn’t enjoy it as much as Titan, I loved the glimpses of the secondary characters throughout the story and I can’t wait to read more in this series.
