Review: The Blood & Roses Series ( Blood & Roses #1-6 ) by Callie Hart


6 books in one complete boxset!!!

Zeth Mayfair's never been troubled by morals before. As one of Seattle's most dangerous, feared men, he's always carried out the jobs he's sent on without a second thought. Drugs? Guns? Dirty money? They're all fair game. But girls? Girls are another matter entirely. When Zeth's employer decides buying and selling kidnapped women is a lucrative sideline, Zeth's usually uncomplicated life suddenly becomes very complicated indeed. And his biggest complication goes by the name of Sloane Romera.

As a trauma doctor at St. Peter's Hospital, Sloane's finger is hardly on the pulse of Seattle's underground crime scene. Her sister is missing and she needs to find her, yet all doors leading into the seedy world of human trafficking are firmly closed in Sloane's face. She needs information. What she really needs is help...and help presents itself in the most unlikely of forms. Zeth Mayfair is terrifying, scandalously hot, and comes fully loaded with a terrible attitude and wicked smile. He also looks like he's Sloane's only hope. Can she work with the guy without getting herself killed, losing her job, or falling head over heels in love?

What happens in the dark never stays in the dark.

* At the end of this special edition box set, you can also read the first chapter in Violent Things, Zeth & Sloane's brand new story! *

The entire Blood & Roses Series in one complete volume.





I read this amazing series last year and have to wait patiently for every single installment to be release. For those who are new to this series, you are in a for treat because right now Callie Hart is offering the entire box set for just 99cent! What are you waiting for?

*spoiler free review (extracted from my previous review for the series)*

I seldom rate a novella 5 stars because I often felt they were too short to garner such rating. Something is often missing, either the incomplete plot or the unresolved issue/relationship. But as I reached the 4th installment, I've decided that this series totally deserves 5 amazing stars.

This is a story of Sloane, the ER doctor who was looking for her missing sister. She is willing to give up anything including her virginity to get any information. That is how she meet Zeth Mayfair, the anti-hero of the story. He is obviously on the wrong side of the law, he is a thug/hitman/criminal and a man with some deviant sexual urges. She should be afraid, but he offer his help that she can't deny.

Initially,I thought this series is going to be heavy on BDSM, but as the series progress, that was actually being toned down. Nonetheless, every sexual encounters are still freaking hot. I mean, he is Zeth Mayfair after all, the man who like to play with his toys and never leave his black duffel bag behind.

Every installment left me pretty satisfied on the sex department, no blue balls for me. But this couple obviously take times to open up their heart and discuss anything deeper than their sexual urges. 

On the plot department, there is never short on action and suspense to keep me waiting for every release date. Things just get more and more deadly and more players were being introduced. Oh, the suspense. It was action-packed at its finest. There is a lot of thing happened from #1 to #6, you just have to read it for yourself. Honorable mentioned of the awesome secondary characters, Lacey and Michael. These two deserves all the attention that they deserve as well.

But what makes me love this series so much is that Sloane and Zeth had an understanding and acknowledged what they have together is something special. Zeth can be so sweet sometimes. He started off as someone so standoffish and close up and just wanted to bang, to someone who wants to be a better person for the girl he loves, which is so endearing.

Highly recommended for those who love a highly erotic, slightly dark and action-packed romantic suspense. Everyone needs to meet the legendary Zeth Mayfair!

Rating 5/5
