Blog Tour Review ~ Wrong by LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole



Wrong

by LP Lovell & Stevie J
Release Date: June 2, 2015



Tor

My life was everything I wanted it to be. It was mapped out and planned. I wanted it all, the career, the right husband, the white picket fence and kids. Until he was thrust into my world, ripping me from it. My carefully planned life shattered, proving to be nothing more than a cheap illusion, and now I’m living in this twisted form of hell, where enemies and friends are one and the same. I thought I wanted perfection. Now I don’t know what I want - perhaps not even my own freedom.

Jude

I define wrong. I thrive on the corrupted greed of others, on their trivial hope, and their false optimism. I am the bookie, and the bookie always wins. For those whose hopes far outweigh the depths of their pockets, well, let’s just say paying with your life is not just a figure of speech.
I have always been in control, until suddenly I’m not any more. The day one of my collectors dragged her into my office as payment on a debt, I should have killed them both right there, but I didn’t. Now she threatens my control, threatens everything I’ve built, and yet I still can’t kill her. Why can’t I kill her?
By the time I’m done with her, she may pray for death.
Everything is not always as it seems.
Lust, blood, lies…Nothing this wrong should feel so right.

5+ – Wrong Never Felt So Damn Right – Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

Politicians, preachers, cops: they're all my clients, and as long as they pay, there's not a problem. I'm a businessman and I take my job very seriously.
You fuck with me, I'll kill you, because no one takes anything as serious as death.

Victoria moved to America to find her own freedom, make a life for herself how she chooses and live the life she makes. All to have it snatched away in the blink of an eye when she becomes collateral for a debt she doesn't even owe. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, where she doesn't belong, friends and enimies are one and the same and nothing is as it appears. It isn't long before she questions everything she is and the freedom she always so desperately craved is a thing of the past, and something she isn't even sure she wants anymore.

Jude is a third generation bookie, the most brutal in the business. Everyone knows never to screw with him, you pay or you die – simple as that. Killing has always come easy to him, til her. He questions everything about her, from the reason she landed on his doorstep to his reluctance of killing her. She makes him feel things he doesn't understand, and he doesn't do feelings, and it all just pisses him off. Being around her sends his already volatile temper though the roof and it only gets worse the more he learns about her. Just when he thinks he already has his hands full, an enemy from his past makes an appearance and all hell breaks loose.


What doesn't kill us makes us stronger, and sometimes life doesn't play fair. You have to evolve to survive, and that's exactly what I'm doing. I've evolved. I've become who I need to be in order to survive

Words cannot describe how freakin amazing this book was ~ just be prepared, it is most definitely is a dark read, not for the faint of heart but so totally worth the agonizing journey. I'm not gonna dive too deep into the story, this really is one you should just experience as it comes. Danger lurks around every corner, each page is steeped in tears and fear, surprises come at you out of nowhere, it was a non-stop ride from start to finish and the writing was flawless, totally captivating. Victoria was an incredible woman, she refused to go down without a fight even when it seemed hopeless, even when it made things worse. Jude is a crazy ass son of a bitch with so many layers I can't ever see getting to the bottom of them. He pissed me off, turned me on, and pissed me off some more. Surrounded by enemies and no one she can trust, constantly living in fear, broken down in inconceivable ways, Tor turns into a woman she hardly recognizes and the lines between right and wrong start to blur. The entire book is spent in constant state of tension all leading up to an ending that left me screaming at my kindle desperately wanting to know what happens next and kinda itching to hunt down the authors for driving me more than slightly insane. I don't know when the next book is due out but I will be climbing the freakin walls waiting for it.

A dark, twisted corner of my mind revels in the danger that he represents and rises to the challenge. I'm all too aware of how wrong that is. I have lost everything, and in having nothing to lose, the danger he promises has become an adrenaline shot to my broken and dying soul.

STEVIE J. COLE


I love writing (obvious since I'm on here, right?) I don't have a specific genre - I just write whatever story manifests itself inside my brain.
Writing is like therapy. There is nothing else that I can lose myself in the way I can a story. It amazes me that words can take you away from reality and leave you in a dazed state once you've finished.
Aside from writing, I love sloths and mythology. I kind of have a thing for vampires, because let's face it, something about the fact that they fight the urge to bite your neck and drain the life from you is rather sexy. I have an irrational fear of the zombie apocalypse. I honestly cannot imagine a more horrifying way to go than by being ripped to shreds by a mass of mumbling, decaying, and oozing corpses with clicking teeth. Ugh! I just shuddered typing it.
Now the boring basics: I'm married with two wonderful children. I grew up in the south listening to a ton of grunge rock. Me and my sister have an obsession with going to concerts and getting front and center. We often fight over who can get the most swag from the band. I have an unhealthy obsession with Russell Brand's mind, and the smell of crayons is the most soothing smell there is.
I hope if you read my work that you will enjoy it. After all, writing is the most amazing magic trick of all... it puts the reader in the mind of the writer (kind of creepy if you think about it). It's scary inside my brain, watch out!
I hope you love my little worlds as much as I do.
