Depravity Delivered

Mission Mercenaries #4

by Marie James






About the Book:


The job I took was personal for my boss, but my abduction quickly made it personal for me.

There’s no forgiveness for the things they made me do to her.

It would be easy to point fingers, but what about the part of me that liked it?

Something triggered that sickness and left me needy.

I made a choice to protect her when I could, but the need to hurt her again is always in the back of my mind.

The crazy thing is, I see that same darkness in her eyes when she looks at me.

If we survive captivity, there’s still no guarantee we’ll survive each other.











My ARC Review:

Book 4 in this Mission Mercenaries series – this one really does deserve its trigger warnings – be warned this is full to the brim of the dark atrocities that are associated with the sex slavery and human trafficking world – be prepared to be pushed outside your comfort zone with this one.

Ayla gets kidnapped after dropping her younger sister off at campus and is taken by the Mexican cartel that took Angel. Ayla is threatened into submission by them with the threat of hurting her sister. A weekly phone call is all she gets with her. What Ayla goes through for the love of her sister is truly awful…..

Four months later and Nash gets captured by the same cartel he is sent to watch and gain intel off for Angel. Ayla and Nash are thrown together in the most unspeakable of ways and are forced to partake in unimaginable acts while people on line pay to watch. Beaten and broken, both mentally and physically, Ayla and Nash have a connection, a bond through their captivity and understanding of what each other went through.

When they are rescued and released they both struggle with normality, unable to trust, unable to move forward, both realising their connection may be the only way forward.

The boys from Cerberus MC play a supporting role in this one, helping with the rescue from the cartel.

Not for the faint hearted this one – gritty, dark, violent, gut-wrenching, heartbreaking and thought provoking – we get a glimpse behind the curtain of what life might be like for the victims of human trafficking. A dramatic read, one you can’t put down….. intense, horrifying and emotional.




Meet Marie James:

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
