ARC Review: Ven

Ven_Front_Only.jpgTitle: Ven (The V Games #2)

Author: Ker Dukey, K Webster

Release Date: 2018

Synopsis:

The Vetrov name comes with expectation.
My role in this world is simple: do as Father asks and live my life how he planned it.
My future is already written: run the empire.
Old Values. Old Rule. Old Money.
Until her.
Everything I do lacks purpose.
Everything I do is empty.
Women. Money. Power. It meant nothing.
Until her.
When the Volkov rose showed up at my home a disgraced package, hand-delivered by a Vasiliev prince, I began paving my own path.
I vowed to make her bloom once more.
She consumed me.
Her. Her. Her.
But you can’t love a rose and expect not to be damaged by her thorns.
She cut me too deep.
And I bled out.
My soul fled.
All that’s left is a cold, calculating monster.
I am Veniamin.
Volcanic. Victorious. Valiant. Vetrov.
When you enter my world to play games, prepare to lose.
In the end, I always find the thorn in my side, and I pluck it right out.

P L O T

When you’re destined for each other but the stars refuse to align, what can you do? Are there even stars in this dark world they’re living in?

Fast-paced, filled with romance, dark and sensual, and let’s not forget the most important and exciting factor of this book. GIRL POWER. Girls can do anything guys can do and do it better.

Two people born and raised to take over their family’s dark power. But they do not want to rule with the same ways their fathers do, they want to change things.

“Fuck no you don’t need an angel. You need a devil. You need the demons inside me. You’re a dark angel, and together, the angel and demons can create a new world, a new empire.”

Diana

I believe girls named ‘Diana’ are destined for great things, they are fighters and they don’t know when to back down. We have Diana, Princess of Wales, Diana Prince a.k.a Wonderwoman and now we have Diana Volkov – born to be Queen of a dark kingdom.

Diana is the perfect example as one of the types of women we should look up to. She lost everything, her home, her inheritance, her family, but she found her feet and got up again determined to take over the kingdom. She didn’t do it alone though, but there’s only so much you could do to help a person that actually wants to be helped.

She doesn’t need a man, but no man is an island.

She is beauty and grace wrapped in veins of chaos.
She is my rose.
My Diana.

Ven

Hard on the outside, but a passionate lover on the inside. He only ever has eyes for the eldest sister of the Volkov family. He couldn’t have her but now she’s been delivered to their doorstep, now he’ll take what’s rightfully his.

They’re both dark, but not desperate. Both strong and calculative. They’ve been playing the game since the moment they were born. Pawns to their own fathers’ hands but no more.

I love Ven and Diana. They’re just perfect for each other and are in sync. One cannot be without the other.

Falling for him wasn’t like falling at all; it was more like learning to walk again and then growing wings and taking flight–seeing the world from a height I didn’t know existed before.

W R I T I N G

It’s always a crazy ride when Kristi and Ker join forces to write an epic dark romance. There’s always mentally sick people, sex scenes in random places even in filthy places, and a lot of blood! But we love it anyway because maybe we’re just as sick as these authors. (haha I love you guys so much)

Despite having such dark (how many times have I used the word dark?) characters I love how the authors still manage to give them humanity and a real, solid purpose in life and reason for their actions. They also make really cool mafia leaders and merciless characters that you just want to murder because of their wickedness.

I vow to show her the difference between a monster and a master.

O V E R A L L

This book has exceeded my expectations. I was so looking forward to the V Games scene and it did not disappoint. It’s scary as fvck in there I would never want to step foot inside that arena.

Getting to the end of the book it was still a “will they, won’t they” situation so I had no idea how it was going to end.

Vas is coming and I don’t know how he plans to top Ven and Diana, they seem like the legit King and Queen to me.

Time to replenish my darkness and let loose the hate that now festers deep within me.

About the Authors

KER DUKEY

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
