This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Taken by the Jakhua Clan as a teen, 194 was stripped of his name, identity, and free will, meticulously honed to be a ruthless killing machine. This is a role he resents with every fiber of his being but one he embraces to gain back the precious leverage the Georgians wield as their weapon of control: his younger sister, 152.

Zoya Kostava is in shock. After fleeing her mafia family's massacre in Georgia as a child, Zoya lives in secret, hiding from her enemies in Manhattan. At age 25, believing all her family is dead, Zoya learns that her brother, Zaal, is very much alive...and living with their family's greatest enemy: the Volkov Bratva.

Yearning to be reunited with her beloved Zaal, Zoya risks her safety and anonymity for the brother she had mourned since childhood. But just as she reaches Zaal's apartment, Zoya is seized and taken captive by a strange man, who is strong, dark, and brutal. Unyielding, he demands her utter obedience as he locks her away in darkness. He is highly skilled in torture and inflicting pain and demands to know everything about her and her brother. He is a man who will do anything to get what he wants.

Contains mature themes.

Tillie Cole Wrecked Me!


I think this is one of Tillie Cole's darkest stories yet! She really knows how to develop a scene that's intense, dark, raw, unapologetic and doesn't hold back. These well thought out detailed scenes will take you to a terrible place with a horrible monster who only knows how to deliver pain and death. Zoya may have been the monster's captive, but I felt their angst, pain, and torment and was left emotionally wrecked. This story captivated me, appalled me, left me on pins and needles, but I was helplessly glued to my headphones and loved every minute of it. Right there with Zoya, seeing the monster through her eyes, the one who would do anything to save those he loved, the one she saw past his scares, the one she wanted to save, the beautiful monster she feel hopelessly, utterly in love with.

Ravage is told from three POV's and I like how Luka is still a big part of the subplot. I love authors who are skilled enough to write a romance about two main characters falling in love, but can also incorporate other POVs giving the story more substance. Cole did an outstanding job with the three POVs giving more depth without making it too complex or hard to keep up with. I love her writing style, characters and how she uses dark plots to make the romance and love that much more meaningful. Tillie Cole is officially in my list of great authors to follow.

Amelie Griffin and Guy Locke's performance rocked! From the first story, these two have done a phenomenal job, but they really delivered, conquered and awed with this performance!

If you like intense, dark, raw romances, then this is a series you do not want to miss out on! I'll warn you, this isn't for the faint of heart but will leave you satisfied.

Great series!!

These books really intertwine well but they can still be read or listened to individually. it is better as the series though. This may have some triggers for some people. can't wait for the next book. -Dink

Can't get enough of this series

Seems like every new edition to the scarred souls series offers more depth and backstory to Tillie Cole's dark bratva world. It was nice to get to know Zoya and Valentin. Just like my reviews for the other books in this series, I'm going to mention that this is very dark. I loved the story but it seems like their love started with Stockholm syndrome. Trigger warning for torture, sexual assault, rape, mutilation and murder.

Too Much about Nothing

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Those who are interested in lots of play by play sex scenes.....over and over and....well you get the idea. I actually liked the story, what there was of it.....just had way too much sex. It got so boring. I expect more from Tillie Cole.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Kresley Cole.......HaHa, not even trying to be funny

What does Guy Locke and Amelie Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They were both excellent and the only reason I finished the book.

What character would you cut from Ravage?

Nobody.

Any additional comments?

Please Tillie, go back to story telling,,,,,,you can do it so well.

It Ravaged My Soul

Is finding one's true love worth committing the greatest sacrifice of all? Book three in the Scarred Souls series by Tillie Cole makes it clear there's no sacrifice too great for love. This series focuses on the Russian underground with all its grit and crime, as well as new found loves through a path of tragedy. Each book has been an Ultimate Indulgence... you can see my entire series review on Guilty Indulgence Review Site. If you enjoy dark romance, here's a series you don't want to miss. Seriously, it was panty-melting with the sexy narration in Russian accented voices. This is definitely one of those books where the narration enhances the story. Hot. Hot. Hot.

The series gets better with each book

I know this isn't a conventional storyline for those who enjoy romance. It is very violent, more than other mafia novels that I have read. I guess I like the fact that it is more realistic. Yes, there is a romance that brings out the hearts of the heros, of this story. Unlike other such novels, it does not try convince the reader that a women's loves has made these men make a 180 degree turn; that's just not human nature. Instead, these characters redirect their violent natures towards goals that inhance the greater good, of their world. Learning to understand these characters can give the reader a real insight into PSTD and the struggles that sufferers have. In this paticular time, in our world, this is a type of understanding that we all need. My advice, when reading /listening to this series, is to focus on the underlying message.
