***Promo, Review & Giveaway *** Absolution by LP Lovell & Stevie J Cole

Title: Absolution

Authors: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: January 11, 2016



I pray to be forgiven for my sins, but the prayers of someone like me won't dare breach the edge of heaven.

Sins. All sins are equal in the eyes of God, but I'm not God. Some sins are far more wretched than others. And those sinners should pay, Evelyn. One sinner made me his sin, and I can't let men like him live. They must face their judgement, Evelyn. I want to kill them. Every. Last. One.

Ezra James is no different, and I wanted to kill him, I needed to kill him, I'm was going to kill him...And then I found myself fascinated by him, obsessed and possessed in the most reverent of ways. I became his sinner, and he became my sin, but the wages of sin is death, so I must kill him.


The son of a whore, raised by gangsters, moulded into a key player in a corrupt world ruled by money and completely without morals.

This world can break a person. I’ve seen it time and time again. I never gave a shit, until the night I watched a man drop dead at the feet of a woman so broken she made even me feel whole. My little killer called to my depravity and everything in me demanded that I take her, possess her, own her.

Some monsters hide behind the faces of angels, where others stand in plain sight.

Damned. Broken. Irredeemable.

Through blood, absolution shall be found.

My Review

This is a standalone dark romance.

This is the story of Evie and Ezra. When we first meet Evie she pretty much completely broken. I don't mean some man has done her over and broke her heart. No i mean she's completely messed up from growing up in a kind of religious cult. Told she's a sinner her whole life she believes it. She's taught that beauty makes others sin. That her beauty is the cause for everything bad that happens to her so she must endure pain and suffering to get forgiveness. Yep pretty messed up. She escapes and goes on a mission for god (or so she believes) to rid the world of bad men who sin. Who make her a sinner. Then we have Ezra. Equally broken by his past in his own depraved way. Taught not to have any emotion towards anyone or anything Ezra is a very bad man. He pimps out women to some very sick men after he has conditioned them to take what they need to in order to earn him money. He has serious connections with the mob and thinks nothing of killing people. He takes it all in his stride with a puff of his cigarette and a sinful smirk.

I won't say much more about the plot as i don't want to give spoilers.

OK so I'm kinda worried about my own sanity after reading this book. Reason being i actually could relate to these two. Well not personally because I'm not from a religious cult and i don't kill people in my line of business but you get my meaning. I felt desperately sorry for both of them from the start. They both made the best of the life they had forced on them. The story is a slow burn kinda story the crazy kinda creeps up on you and when it does go full on crazy it funnily feels normal... I was eager to turn each and very page i wasn't sure what was about to come next! I went to bed on 50% thinking about these two and their lives and kinda rationalized them, then when i went back in it was starting to build towards to the end and it actually made sense to me their actions and reactions. What this says about me i don't know. But i can say i thoroughly enjoyed the story from start to finish. It's different from all the usual fluffy take them to dinner, have hot relations and then claim them for the rest of their lives story. This is a completely messed up relationship between two broken people. Massive warnings here it is NOT a fluffy love story it is crazy and messed up completely wrong relationship but because of their past's they actually fit together perfectly. There is references to a religion but this is not a real religion it's a made up cult religion so please bare that in mind. There is violence from a man to a woman and violence from a woman to a man. I know lots won't like this but i will say it fits into the story it's not random abuse. Not sure that makes sense, i don't want to give spoilers so if you read it you will get my meaning. There are murders and tortures plus a fair bit of sex.

This story will make you think and feel sorry for people you may in real life call crazy and evil. I was pulled right into the cray cray and am now struggling to read light happy reads!! I can't talk highly enough about this book so if you're looking for something dark and different from the norm this is the book for you. If you want hearts and roses it is not!!

Loved it!!! massively!!

★★☆5 stars of Absolution. May i be forgiven too!☆★★
