Sabotage: A Dark Enemies to Lovers Romance
About this deal
I can’t guarantee that I’ll grow old with her, but I will spend every second of every day that I’m alive proving to her that she comes first no matter what.” Also, this was REALLY heavy on the degradation and humiliation kink. I read the TW and didn’t see this listed as a trigger, and I think it should have been because this level of humiliation and degradation isn’t for everyone. While I don’t mind it in small doses, this was just WAAAAAYYYY too much for me. I did not feel a connection with literally any character. Colton was so narcissistic it wasn't believable he had a caring bone in his body. Raylee just casually cheated on her boyfriend Nate constantly with Colton (but i thought they hated each other with a passion?) Nate seemed like a really nice guy at first and then all of a sudden when he saw her after the breakup at the party he turned into an abusive psycho ex who was going to make her pay?
I ENJOYED this read but it is NOT for the faint hearted. I think this book spiralled me down a rabbit hole of everything Shantel Tessier and I love it. If you've got lost or mixed up in the midst of reading her novels, you can use the "read saving" feature on platforms like Goodreads. They provide a brief recap or summary of the books to help readers clear up any confusion. I tried SO HARD to continue this.. but I just can't .. I don't think I can read more of this author's writing...Shantel writes smut on a level with Trent Evans. I’ve tried to finish other works by her but nothing compares to her Lords universe. Some of the novels she read have left her laughing, others smiling while others have had her in tears. They have made her grateful for the life she had or have made her compare her own life to what she reads.
This will test your boundaries so be aware of that before you dive into this, depending on your triggers it doesn’t sugar coat things. She is destined to become a mafia wife and the only way out of such a predicament is death. However, it does seem that there is someone determined to ensure she does not marry the mafia boss and if he has his way she may just end up dead. My first book by Shantel Tessier was the Ritual and I LOVED it! I adored Ryat. I loved how protective he was of Blakely. I loved how he was so OTT J/P over her! Like no one could even LOOK at his Blakely without him freaking out! So when I saw Sabotage recommended on a Facebook group, I was expecting more of the same. The T/W section says that Colt was supposed to be OTT J/P, so I was EXCITED!Wow, I’m speechless. When I first saw the cover for this book, I had a strong feeling I was gonna like it and long behold, I loved it. While Shantel is passionate about writing, the family will always come first. As such, she spends most evenings at home with her daughters and her husband alongside their dog and cat.
