I have lied.

I have cheated.

I have given my body and my life to the man who destroyed my family and left me for dead.

I have killed, I have sinned, and worst of all, I have enjoyed the misery of others.

I have licked the salty tears of a father mourning his firstborn son, and nothing has ever tasted so sweet.

I have died, and I have been resurrected, a phoenix from the ashes.

I know I’m going to hell. I’ll burn in the fiery pits alongside Dornan and his sons for the things I’ve done, and for the things I’m about to do.

But I don’t care. It will be worth every lick of the devil's flames on my guilty flesh to destroy Dornan Ross.

One down. Six to go.

This was an Amazon Verified Purchase.  Tamera McIntosh also reviewed it.  You can read her Review HERE.

Before I start my “official” review, I want to step on my soap box for just a minute.

Words can NOT express how much I love this series.  It’s completely unique from anything I have ever read.  Many people criticize the fact each book in the series is only approximately 100-150 pages, give or take.  Honestly, I don’t mind.  It’s a quick, exciting read that leaves me craving more.  If it’s a good series and you love it THAT much, it is your choice to make the separate purchases.  I’d rather spend the money on multiple novellas that are like my book crack, vs spending a little less on a series of books that consist of a lot of filler.  That is one thing Lili St Germain does NOT do….she doesn’t add filler. Each paragraph is filled with excitement and anticipation as to what will come next. It is the epitome of a page turner. That is all. ♥

*Note: Strong language is used in this review because, well..it brings it out in me. lol If it offends you, then this book and this review is not for you.

The Review

Lili St Germain did NOT let me down with the second book in the series.  I love this quote:

I have licked the salty tears of a father mourning his firstborn son, and nothing has ever tasted so sweet.”

Sammi has no regrets about killing the first of her rapists and she’s even more driven to finish them all off.  Except for Jase.  She loves him.  But will he love her once he learns what she’s done? Who she is? Forgive her for all her lies? I think he will, but is he bound by blood or by love? He loved her once, when she was Juliet, the innocent girl who he couldn’t save. Can he love her again as Sammi, the woman hell bent on revenge?

These are all questions that I keep asking myself while I’m reading this book.  I want him to figure out who she is, but yet I’m afraid if he does, he’ll either betray her or keep her from finishing her mission.  And I DO want her to finish her mission.  I want them to pay for what they did to her. For the girl they killed and the woman they continue to hurt. I want them to die. And honestly, I hope she takes out her piece of shit mother in the process.  She not only handed her young daughter over to Dornan and his sons, but she is STILL with them, even though she thinks they killed Juliet! Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK!??

In “Six Brothers” Juliet is quite clever in her plan to take out the second son.  She’s also clever in her cover up. However to get to that point, she must first do some planning and bide her time, which unfortunately includes screwing Dornan some more.  He’s a sick, twisted fuck, but amazing enough, you still find yourself enjoying the sex scenes. Then you find yourself wondering how you did.  That is the amazing talent that Lili St Germain has.  She knows how to mind fuck her readers and I can’t help but be in complete and utter awe of her talent to do so!!

My Final Thoughts: If you like to toe the line or travel on the dark side of your personality at times, this is the series to do it with. If you have issues with rape, murder and most importantly, have an issue with the victim fucking her rapist for revenge, then do NOT even bother with this book.  It requires an open mind and as I said, a tendency to walk on the dark side when it comes to reading this series. Don’t get me wrong, there is soooo much more to this story then just the sex with the rapist.  It’s the plotting, the inner turmoil between love and revenge, the murder and yes, love.
