Review of ATTICUS by KL Donn (Shouty caps are me screaming).

newarcbannerblurbKL Donn Atticus 1

Time stands still.
Lies were told.
Secrets are revealed.
Who will we be when the walls tumble like mortar?
** Warning **
The Adair Empire is a dark and graphic romance that will push your buttons, and maybe your boundaries. Each book contains a new couple but ends with a plot cliff-hanger.
While Atticus can be read as a stand alone, for full reader enjoyment you may want to read them in order.

Krystal loves to write about instalove between couples looking for love. She has a passion for contemporary romance and springs into menage as often as she can.
Currently, she is working on 2 new series, the Adair Empire (with the first 3 books already written). The Adair’s are a whole lot darker, dirtier, and grittier than what her readers are used to, but boy has she had a ton of fun writing them.
The What Happens When series will begin with Anonymous Bride on Oct 19 and continue with untraditional love stories. Bringing you all the good feels, a ton of love, and maybe – if you’re lucky 😉 a surprise baby or two!
With the exception of Anonymous Bride, you’ll be able to find all her books on all platforms!

How do you know you’re reading a really great series? What is the thing that makes you go “YES, this is awesome!” and start claiming book boyfriends? What defines your favorite series? One of the ways I can tell that I am in absolute adoration with a series or a book is that the minute I finish reading, I want to go back and re-read it. And every time, every time, I finish the newest book in this series, my first thought is to go back and read it all over again. I will never get the same feeling I had when I first read Luther (because he was my first, which may be why I love him so much- he’s still mine by the way and I will cut you if you try to take him from me!), but I will still go back to reading this series. It’s one I need to own, in physical form, because I love it that much.

It took me awhile to figure out what to write for this review. I didn’t know what to say without giving away the plot, but also didn’t know how to get across to you that this series is AMAZING. (Besides using shouty caps).

KL Donn weaves a magical world that makes partially (or fully) psychotic men who drop bodies faster than you can blink hotter than I would have ever thought possible. I am as obsessed with this series, and Atticus, as I am with the Adair Empire, as the men are with their women. Atticus is no different when it comes to wanting to own his woman, wanting to give her happiness in a world full of darkness. Because the women of the empire are FIERCE, but they are also the light to their guys’ darkness.

I can’t get too much into the book plot, because you need to read the previous books and I don’t want to spoil those if you haven’t already. Also, SHIT GOES DOWN in this book and I want you to be able to get that “first time” feeling too.

Atticus has been watching Catalina for months, since they found out about her existence. When the danger seems to be getting to close to home, he goes to get Catalina. AND THE FIREWORKS GO OFF. If you’ve read Castiel’s story, you know that the theme song was pretty much “Bodies” by Drowning Pool. Atticus is a little different, where there’s not that much bloodshed, but it’s not because Atticus doesn’t like it. Oh, no. Catalina just lives in the middle of freaking nowhere.

That’s about all I’m willing to dish on this until you can read it for yourself. I could literally write a thesis about how much I love these books, and how I literally screamed when I got Atticus on my kindle (my fiance was NOT happy about that! he thought I was dying or something), and how I can’t WAIT to read Carver and “Gasping for Air”. I could go on and on about how much I love KL and the world she created (and I’m saying it was specifically for me because that makes me happy). Because seriously, these books talk to the darkest parts of you, call to them, and make you question your own sanity for a bit. And I’m talking “Should I like this so much?” kind of sanity. It’s the kind that makes you go “MINE” for one of the guys, but then ask “uh, should I want this book boyfriend this much?”

My answer? WHO CARES. GO GET THIS SERIES! — Also, I’m screaming about that sneak peak into Carver.

Side note- I’m always screaming. I may be slightly over dramatic about books. Maybe.
