5 HeartsI read Silla’s Buried Secrets series so I was excited that she has included Josh’s story in this Anthology. It was an awesome surprise and one I didn’t see coming. Josh isn’t exactly a lovable character but he has a story to tell…
Josh has his secrets and tries his best to keep his demons locked away. It’s hard when all he has is time to think while he is in jail for twenty-five years to life. That is really one of the only reasons why he goes to these therapy sessions that he hates. He has nothing else better to do. If this therapist could help reduce his sentence then he will sit and listen to her bullshit. The other reason is for his children. He might have shattered his marriage but he doesn’t want to do the same with his relationship with his kids. He actually does love them, and being around them is the only time he can keep is temper in check. But, is it too late to repair the damage he has caused to his family?
Josh has a chance to get his revenge on the ones that deserted him when he needed them most. He doesn’t trust the ones that want him to cooperate in doing just that. He also doesn’t want to let his demons out. But is it the only way to get what he wants? He has his secrets. Will he keep them buried or will he dig them up?
I loved this. It was a glimpse into Josh’s life before the evilness. I can’t wait to find out what happens next in Depths of Darkness.
This is fuckin’ sick as hell, yet I’m too weak, too scared to put an end to it all.

***MANTIS by Courtney Shockey
I have only read one other story by Courtney and that was in the Hearts and Daggers Anthology. I need to read more! Especially after reading Mantis since it was just a tease to what’s coming in a full-length book.
Gabriella and Rosa have their kink. It’s a dangerous one that’s for sure. They take the risk because it’s not only what they want but what they need. Then enters a sexy stranger that could change everything…
I can’t really say much more. All I know is that I need the next book! What is going to happen to this couple? Damn.
“If you know what I need, you wouldn’t be teasing me right now,” she uttered.
Women were meant for love and trust, while men were used to subdue the raw instincts that lived inside of us.
“How rough do you two like it?”
🔹🔹I plan on reading more stories in the Anthology at a later date.
