This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Brutal. Intense. Passionate. The world of the scarred souls.

They call me 901. I am a monster, a killer, a champion. In the blood pit I am a god. I have no name, no family, and no identity. When master says fight, I fight...until I am the only one left standing. I have one goal, to fight so well that I am freed. I don't need friends, I don't need women. They are weaknesses. I am strong. Until I see her. She is gorgeous and kind and off-limits to me. She was stolen as a child to be the worst type of slave, and now master wants her. What he wants, he gets. With a smile, she melts my brutal heart. I have never wanted anything more. I need to make a choice. Freedom or Love. I cannot choose wrong.

Tillie Cole Does It Again! 👏👏👏👏👏


Riot is Dark! Intense! Riveting! Suspenseful! Shocking! But will hook the listener from the very first chapter. I was totally mesmerized by the characters and their story.....I loved it.......it's impossible for me to choose a favorite, and I'm soooo sad this series is ending.😢

One thing that really separates Cole's Scarred Souls series apart from other dark romances stories are her hero's. They aren't your typical bad boys, dominant alphas or even sexy billionaires with dark fantasies, these characters have been through hell, lived in hell, survived, and are scarred inside and out. They've either been kidnapped, sold, or betrayed into living an existence where they were forced to fight to the death. They were robbed of their humanity, given a number, and had to comply with their master's wishes or face severe punishment. In this underground world, only the strong survived, there was no room for weakness, or anything the masters could use against the fighters......especially love. Cole really outdid herself with this one! Riot was both brutal, and beautiful, and these characters will stay with me for a long time. I rarely re-listened to audios, but this is another series, I could easily listen too again!

Amelie and Guy delivered an outstanding performance. Riot's dark, with brutal and intense scenes, but they were perfectly narrated. This duo did an excellent job placing the right amount of emphasis on all the different emotions and tones.

Between the amazing story, and great narration, I was glued to my headphones, and if I didn't have to pay bills, I would have listened non-stop. BUT BE WARNED, Riot isn't for the faint of heart, there are triggers and some scenes may be too difficult for some to listen to, but if you like dark romances, then you will want to consider this series. (Best if listened to in order.) Well worth the time, credit or sale!

The End... Say It Isn't So!

From the very first book in this series, I've been addicted - especially to the audio versions with their drop-dead sexy accents that place readers right in the middle of the action. These narrators were perfect for this Russian Bratva series.

There is everything a reader could want in a dark romance... the intrigue, the suspense, the drama, the romance, and at last - the victory! And in this book, readers get the grand finale of victories. It's cheer inducing! You must, must, must listen to this series in order. It's absolutely the only way to get the full effect.

I review for the Guilty Indulgence Book Club. You can find more reviews on our blog.

5 Crazy Ass Must Read/Listen Stars!!!!!

You ever read a series that just gets better and better with each book? Wait, first let me ask, "have you read this series yet?" We will get back to the first question in a bit. While each book in this series is considered a standalone, I would recommend reading the others first because there are details about the characters that are in the other books that are paramount to a better understanding all around. Not to mention this series is the bomb.com.
Ok, back to the first question. A series that just blows your mind? Well, this series does that. With each book, Tillie Cole solidified her status on my faves list. I know I've said this before in other reviews on her books but the versatility of her writing is brilliant. She goes from the sweet, NA series Sweet Home that has the Shakespearean theme of Romeo and Juliet feel to it, to the Hangman of Hades series that is wrought with cult life and dregs of the Outlaw MC world to this series where we are immersed in a dark, twisted side of the Russian mob. It just amazes me that she actually writes all of these and, at times, simultaneously.
Now onto my review of this book. My first thought in my notes was "NO!!! This can not be the end for this series." I don't want this series to end. I just love all the characters and how each have overcome the obstacles of their pasts. This series is so easy to get lost in. I did so and this book was no different. I totally was neglectful with my chores. Laundry schmaundry. The dishes will still be in the sink when I'm done, right?
Riot was dark, intense, raw, gritty, gruesome, heart-pounding, heart-wrenching, and so much more. I don't want to go to much into the storyline because that would be a huge disservice to leave spoilers and let me tell ya, they are itching to spew out of me. Like wicked bad. Wow, "wicked" I haven't used that word since we moved from New England over 7 years ago. I digress. I'm rambling now just to keep those spoilers from leaking out. I'm just gonna stop here and say, "This is a Crazy Ass Must Read. The series is a Crazy Ass Must Read."

*I read this and then had to listen because I a good book whore like that. I loved the narrators. They really brought 901 and 152 to life along with Luca and the others as well. The accent changes really helped in bringing this story to life. They were seamless and not distracting at all.

an ending I actually loved!!

I usually hate endings to series but I actually loved this! sure it was cheesy, but honestly after what the characters went through in this series they deserved a cheesy ending Haha

the only thing that ever bothered me about these. books were the narrators, while not awful, werent the best and their use of accents or lack their of was confusing.

It's over now?!

I binge listened to this series. I have been a fan of Tillie's books for a long time. I knew once I could dedicate time to binging this series, that I would no doubt be obsessed. And I am. This series was everything. The storyline kept me from pressing pause. I couldn't stop listening until I heard "Audible hopes you enjoyed this audiobook" or something along the lines of that.

If you have not read this series yet, you need to change that ASAP.

Great conclusion to Scarred Souls!

I have been waiting to listen to this book since I first started this series last spring. This was a perfect ending to the series, the characters all went back to the place where all the drugs and violence started (the blood pit). Scarred Souls is definitely not a typical bad boy or alpha male romance. These stories are dark and intense, both the hero's and heroine's have have gone through dramatic experiences, they have been robbed of their freedom and humanity since a young age. They have fought, survived and are scarred.

Riot brought back the key males from the previous books as they travelled to rescue Valentine's sister. I honestly can't say which male was my absolute favorite, but Illian is right up there with all the others. Even though the story is focused on Illian and Anessa, I loved how they brought everyone together for the end and the connection they all formed from the experience was wonderful.

The narration for this was absolutely great! Amelie Griffin and Guy Locke did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life.... the accents were definitely icing on the cake!

Rowdy.....

This entire series kept me on my toes and I think I read all 4 books in about a week. If you like intense, suspenseful stories and enjoy the darker side of romance novels, this series is for you. The writing was excellent and the narrators were ridiculously good. There are so many times that I felt so damn frustrated at how the main characters were treated and the hell they had to go through, but those stories are often the best when it all works out in the end. Definitely enjoyed all of the books in this series and would be interested in reading other works from Tillie Cole..

Mind blown!

5+ BLOOD PIT STARS!!!!!!! Tillie Cole really did save the BEST for last!! RIOT is hands down my favourite of the Scarred Souls series!! It was very dark, very brutal, yet was the PERFECT conclusion with the death of the Master of the Blood Pit! Ms. Cole is truly masterful at drawing out raw emotions through her addictive narrative. Her characters have so much depth and this story was fast paced, action packed and adrenaline pumping!! An unforgettable conclusion and I was very satisfied that all her heroes and heroines finally received their much deserved HEAs!!

An overall, fitting ending to the series

I was fairly satisfied with the resolution of this series, with one exception. I feel like we were robbed of Anessa and Illian's experiences as the took their journey from captivity to freedom. We had that experience with the other three couples and I was dissapointed to not share it with the fourth. This Series is full of violence, physical and mental abuse so if you have a sensitivity to these subjects, this series is not for you.
My last comment, concerns the narration of Amelie Griffen. She has a talent with the voice changes but she has a specific cadence and pattern that she uses with every sentence that becomes irritating very quickly. By the end of the fourth book, I wanted to scream. I am surprised that a professional narrator had not received feedback, about this, and worked to correct it. Alas, I have heard her narrate other books and she does it constantly. It comes across as being sing songy and bothers me so much that I avoid books she narrates. Oh well, I couldn't be a narrator, to save my life. Unfortunately, I have so spoiled with so many great narrators that I feel like I can follow my whim.
