5/5 Stars!

Avarice Unforgiving is exactly that – unforgiving. Book 1 was Cat in the Hat compared to this continuation. Just when I thought I was on the same page with this author and had delved into the psyche of Kameo Kross, and figured everything out, this read slapped me in the back of the head and said, “Nice try.”

But I wasn’t alone. Kameo herself has many questions she, nor anyone else can answer. At least, not anyone who’s willing to answer…not yet.

On a rollercoaster of emotions and need, Kameo is caught between her mysterious Dom and her ruthless boss. Both men feed the degrading submissiveness which is her joy and her shame. And then there are the jumbled memories of her ‘Bull Man’ and Halloween which still torment Kameo.

Not one who believes in happiness, Kameo feels that even if she gets what it is she’s been searching for, she won’t be allowed to keep it. That agonizing thought drives her to a decision – walk away.

Easier said than done. Honestly, she never had a choice.

Kameo finds out someone knows of her past – the bad and…the bad – and even the circumstances of her birth, and is out to blackmail her boss, Kress, and ruin her. Not believing she can sink any lower, Kameo is still appalled at the way the information is delivered…and where.

M.W. Kress. An enigma unto himself. I had thought certain things through about him from book 1, but even my twisted mind didn’t go…there.

While trying to understand how and why she has become someone’s target, Kameo must reconcile with new revelations. The circumstances of her birth are not what she’s believed all her life, and she’s not whom she thought she was. Well, actually, she’s not sure who she is. Kameo has to open her mind to things ‘normal’ people would never believe. Even with doubts still pulling at her, Kameo knows what she’s seen…and experienced…is real.

With mild trepidation, Kameo decides to accept what is offered and steps out on Faith. (Did I really say, ‘Faith’?) This is when the story is bum-rushed by a tornado of a plot twist that left me just staring at the screen! Trying to kick start my brain, I proceed to the last chapter…and the annihilation of my brain was complete. I have no words.

Avarice Unforgiving is a complex, tightly written story – there is no wiggle room. And you will wiggle. It will make you squirm. Much of the world building includes things many of us have been taught or read. Avarice Unforgiving will challenge you.

Of course, it is a cliff-hanger! This author…maaan! Book 1 left me hanging on with two hands. Now, I’m hanging on with one hand…and reaching for book 3! There is a disclaimer at the book’s beginning – please read it! This is not a comfy, little read. Though short in length, you will not “breeze” through it. Much like Kameo Kross, you will be tormented…and you will enjoy it. Go ahead and 1-click. No judgments here.

    I can’t even read your review as I’m waiting for the third book in this series before I start reading. I hate cliff-hangers. LOL

      A.C. Melody really brought her A-game with this series! Cliffhangers aren’t my thing…they’re my Krytonite! LOL! But Avarice is unputdownable once you get hooked…and I was hooked after book 1, chapter 1!

      *Tapping my foot* She needs to hurry up…my brain is in overdrive! 😄

        My point exactly. I’d have a gun in my hand and stand over her shoulders until she completed the story, if I read 1&2 beforehand. LOL

        LOL, Yes, I was like “WHOA wait! Don’t shoot, it’s done!” But, I completely get the dislike of cliffhangers. I’m actually thinking about adding a bit about that in my next Indie post. 🙂

        Looking forward to it!

        I hate cliffhangers…and ending up writing one! LMAO! But it was not intentional, I swear! LOL! The book was just tooooo long, especially for a first novel. So I just “split” it near the middle…and still ended up with 300 pages! LOL!

        Exactly! Avarice was also one novel, completely done the RD was nearly 160,000 words. Not nearly as long as yours, but still a little lengthy.

        I think you tied up In The Best Interest really nicely, though. It doesn’t have that abrupt ending – unlike someone else we know… LOL (sorry!) O.O

    Talk about staring at the screen! WOW, Felicia, I am so blown away with this review! Thank you so, so much! I can’t believe you went into so many plot points without any spoilers – I need to take lessons LOL. I’m going to go spread this around the web now! 😀 ♥

      This review was hard to write without giving anything away. Everything is so tightly connected, mentioning one thing leads to another. This book cannot be read..it must be experienced! *Nodding*

        Yeah, it was quite difficult making up the Teasers. I had to leave off any mention of names, so readers could only guess at who was talking LOL I didn’t want to reveal too much.

        This makes my day, Fle, thank you! 😀 ♥
