ARC REVIEW

Monstrous by Harper A. Brooks

Description 

The dark voices aren’t real, they say.
They tell me it’s all in my head.
But the monsters want to play, you see.
So they’ll come for me in my bed.
~


I’m still haunted by the monsters of my past. 

And they remember me, too…

All I want is to feel normal. But the pills that numb the pain end up stripping me of who I am until I’m left feeling hollow.

When I stop taking them, I can see clearly again, and after so much darkness and tragedy, I’ve found myself.

Then come the voices…

Monsters.

Three of them.

Dark shadowy things that I thought only dwelled in my nightmares—they’re real. And they’ve been waiting for me to come home.

They want to open my mind to things I can hardly imagine, in my life and in the bedroom. But I’m scared. I’ve been running from my fears for years, and now these monsters want to claim me as theirs.

They promise me protection from a far more dangerous threat, an evil that tried to take my life before and wants to finish the job.

Am I losing my mind?

Can this really be happening?

I have a bad feeling that no matter what I do, I’m going to be devoured in the end.**Monstrous is an ultra steamy paranormal romance novella. This standalone is meant for those who like to embrace the things that go bump in the night instead of running from them.**

My Review 

A short but really good story. 

Marianna “Mari” has hit a wall! Well that wall has her surrounded and she can’t find a way over it! 

Ten years ago she lost the love of her life! Ripped away from her, murdered! She’s never really recovered from losing him. But she needs to take back her life, and throwing away her medication seems like the way forward. But once the nights draw in, things seem to appear and make her wonder if coming off her medication was the right thing to do….

Her dream takes her away from her reality, the dreams about the three faceless men who command her body seem so lifelike, they whisper to her, they entice her, they beg her to call to them…..

So is this reality? Is it a product of her coming off her medication? It’s not all fun and orgasms though! They frighten her with their demands, and they may appear to look human, but looking closer Mari discover their true identities. They are monsters! 

Fear, Hopelessness and Darkness have been protecting Mari for a long time, and by some miracle they are able to finally be with her. They are going to give her protection and pleasure, but she belongs to them, and they will go to any lengths to secure her and her promise to be with them forever!! 

I liked the premise of this book. It takes you on a sensual journey. They are quite a few naughty scenes. Some of it felt a little too much, and if it was a little longer then the scenes wouldn’t have seemed so many. 

So if you like chill with your dark romance pick this one up.
