Gagged (The Clipped Saga, Book 3)
Gagged - Devon McCormack

The conclusion has finally arrived, and I am in awe. Honestly not since Nicholas Bella has an author taken me on such an unbelievable mindfuck like this author has. And while there was a break in writing between books 2 and 3, this author managed to step right back into this world without missing a beat.

 

 

First off, this is a book with painful sex. And while many may shy away from this part of the story it is brilliantly done. These acts are not thrown in for the sake of it. These acts are such an integral part of the story, of these characters and it is in these scenes that so much is revealed about these characters, their nature, their desires and their true heart. Yes…heart. As I mentioned in my review of earlier books, what is the biggest surprise of this series is the heart of these characters and the love they have for one another. Even when you want to smack one of them upside the head… *coughs…KINZER* it is moments later that your heart melts for them just as hard.

 

Trey might have the biggest cock in the series, but it is no match for his heart. I swear the love expressed here between him and His Kid is some of the best moments of the book. And yet, Hayde and what he endures for the love of his life, is equally emotional.

 

EMOTIONAL.

 

Treycore could hear his body in a way he couldn’t describe, he could feel a part of Kid he seemed to only have access to when they fucked. It was what had bonded them, some connection that was so much more profound than anything they could communicate with words.

 

 

He’d lived a long life…a life of aching that only grew and intensified with every passing day. However, as much as he felt like it could be worth it to end it all, there was a reason to live: for Kinzer.

 

GAAAAAHHH…

 

While your ass may hurt, my gawd, these characters feel…they want the pain…they need the pain and it is in these moments that they…live. And I loved how in this installment we got more of their internal struggles, insights and feelings than we have previously.

 

Immortals had a taste for something a little different than mortals. Pleasure was one thing, but the combination of pain and pleasure and the nuances in between were far more appealing.

 

 

“In some ways, the pain is the only thing left to remind me I’m still alive."

 

Another aspect of this one are the numerous WTF moments involving creatures and torture elements that are just so mind-blowingly crazy…including one strap on that is a mix of “Seven” and Lucille from The Walking Dead…

 

 

…and regardless of how crazy…I just couldn’t help the shit eating grin that appeared on my face.

 

 

Because really...Devon came up with this stuff...and I love it!!!

 

Add to all this…new characters we love to hate… Aerysn and Quintz are both amazing additions to this series. Can you trust them or not? Like with previous installments…you never really now.

 

This is a series in which you need to put aside your mortal ideas of relationships, of religion and of sex and just immerse yourself into this world…one that is fantastically developed and explored by one unbelievably creative mind.

 

**Highly Recommended**

Clipped - Devon McCormack

 

And this wasn't just nice...this was brilliant.

 

I have to be honest...I adore Devon and his romances are definitely entertaining with amazingly hot and sweet sex scenes and some great characters but for me...I am more of a sucker for the fuckery that comes from this man.  The Bastard Series up until this point has been my favorite.  But now...this fuckery wins out.

 

The world building here I absolutely loved.  The exploration of the relationship between The Almightly and The Leader (Satan) was a good mindfuck all on its own...but the story that grows from our introduction to dear Jerry to the Fallen and the Hinderlings and then to Maggie just completely worked for me.  And this starts off with some quite disturbing shit.   

 

 

And then there's the fuckery that is the life that the Kid has endured. I, like Trey, fell hard for this character from first sight.  Such heart in this amazing character.  And that's the thing.  Heart.  While this book may be described as erotic fuckery (is that the actual tag on Amazon??) this includes some unbelievably developed relationships that begin seeping out through the lines, through the violence and through the blood.  

 

“I’ve seen centuries of torture, blood thirst, and rape. But every so often, you see some puny mortal do something that surprises you…sacrifice something so precious for the sake of another. For their child. For their lover. I was created to be aesthetically pleasing. It’s a quality higherlings venerate, but when you’ve had that advantage as long as I have, it doesn’t impress you. You come to see the beauty of things unseen. Like those things I’ve seen in mortals. Will, honor, love. When you see things like that, you realize that somewhere inside of these creatures is something beautiful. Something worth saving.”

 

I mean seriously??  Trey surprised the hell out of me.  What a shockingly beautiful character for a book I thought would just be fucked up.  And that is the brilliance that I love.

 

As Kid looked into Treycore’s eyes, he didn’t see the anger and hate that he’d seen before. He saw pain and sadness. He saw weakness and vulnerability. He wished that he could wrap his arms around Treycore and console him. But he knew how stupid that would look. They’d known each other for less than a day, and he was just a smelly mortal, as Treycore had continually reminded him. As much as he wanted to believe that Treycore was sharing this because he was having strong feelings too, he knew that it was more likely that he just wanted someone to share it with…

 

This fuckery indeed has heart.. And don't get me started on Kinzer.  This beautiful broken angel has his own heartbreaking story as well and how this ends for him in this installment just killed me.

 

Casting of these quite memorable characters may take me some time as I locate just the right images...but thanks to a post Sheena (on FB) made...this is my Kid...I can totally see him acquiring this tattoo as well.  <3

 

 

Now to dive into Bound and the fear that I will be left with one hellava cliffhanger.  

 

*Note:  I received these through a Giveaway Devon held on FB.  I can  only hope that the republishing of this amazing series happens soon as everyone who enjoys fuckery needs to read this.  This is certainly not for everyone...but damn...it should be.

Dominion: Gods and Slaves, Book 1
Dominion (Gods and Slaves Series Book 1) - Heidi Ryan,Nicholas Bella

 

Well...if Master Bella has not gone and done it again!  This was so bloodydamn great. My heavens...and so worth the wait! It has been at least 6 months since we began to be teased with promises of gladiators, hard core sex, graphic violence and language and this one delivers...and delivers brilliantly.

 

I cannot wait to see where this goes from here.

 

The world building here is just so well done and the characters being formed rival what I loved so much about The New Haven Series.  Mateo is such a strong and incredibly rich character and of course seeing how his relationship with Eloy grows or changes as the story progresses will be just awesome to see. Plus there is Titus, who I love already.

 

In the earlier days since arriving at the ludus, Mateo had been meek, afraid and uncertain of what would be his fate. He now had some understanding, and he also began to see that if he were to survive, he had to cast away whatever timid feelings he had. He was in a world of warriors and barbarians. They were used to taking what they wanted, giving no apologies, and killing for sport and glory. If he was going to rise in status, he had to become someone new, someone without fear and doubt. He had to become a gladiator.

 

Indeed he does.

 

 

I cannot recommend this one enough!  Bravo Master Bella on another winner!!
