From USA Today bestselling author Kasey Millstead comes a book that will leave you gripping the edge of your seat as you live the life of Ella Moore. With a heart that's been hardened by the tragic death of her parents, she sets in motion a lethal chain of events that will eventually avenge her parents murders.'Before my parent’s tragic death, I had never been vengeful person.

Ella Moore is the epitome of a badass.

Alecia Reynolds life has been turned upside down in the blink of an eye when her parents are both killed in cold blood, years go by and still no one is ever charged with their murders.
One day she receives a tip from a stranger that will change her. Deciding to take justice into her own hands, she starts to do research and collect all the information she will need to avenge her parents. That is the day Ella Moore is born. She has remade herself into a club whore to infiltrate the Spades MC who are responsible for the deaths of her parents, and they fall right into her trap. After all who could pass up a go with her “golden pussy”…. none of the Spades that’s for sure.
There is only one of them that doesn’t make her sick like the others, Taser and she form a kind of bond with each other but she won’t let her feelings get in the way of her well laid plans. The night of the Spades president Joker’s birthday party she sets her plan into action. “They call me the Praying Mantis because after I fuck my target, I kill them.”
If I’ve said it once I’ll say it a hundred times…. I LOVE KASEY!!!
I have yet to read one of her books that I absolutely did not love. I was sucked in from just reading the synopsis and have been impatiently awaiting release day. It was full of action and suspense but don’t panic the amazingly smoking hot scenes that Kasey is known for writing are definitely in here. I loved that was gritty and dark but still left you wanting more, it was a fast read but it didn’t leave you hanging or wondering what the hell you just read. This book is a must read and I will tell anyone that will listen about it.



Get ready for this fast paced, in your face, sexy suspense!

“My target is the Spades MC and those motherfuckers are about to meet their maker. Vengeance is mine.” ~ KM
WOW! I can’t even believe I am done and writing this review! All I remember is sitting down with my comfy pillow, turning my Kindle on, grabbing my copy and BANG! I just got demolished by this sexy, out of nowhere strong female who may or may not be all she seems. All she knows is that her world was turned upside down in a blink of an eye and everyone is going to pay!
“Sometimes good people have to do bad things for the greater good…”
With a storyline that can quite possibly be out of reach, Kasey Millstead writes Vengeance Is Mine with such fluidity and clarity that one can’t help but fall into her trap, into the world she has created, and all you can do is hold on and ride it to the end. The ride, well let’s just say that I sat down with no expectations and was blown away with how much fun this book was. Yes I know, killing is bad, using sex for revenge is bad(maybe), but who cares when you have a female who comes into her own self, just at the right time to possibly get justice served.
I loved how all the characters have a depth to them that you really don’t know who they are, or what they’re capable of. I loved how Kasey has brought us into a world, that’s gritty and smelly, when this world can sometimes be glorified in a pretty way. I loved how I said eww at times when I was reading about a character.
Really, I said eww and scrunched my nose… That can only come from great storytelling.
I hope there is more that can come from this story just because I am greedy like that, but even if Vengeance Is Mine opens and closes the way it is now, I am completely satisfied.







Kasey Millstead lives a quiet life in country New South Wales, Australia, with her husband and their four young children. She enjoys baking, singing (ridiculously out of tune) & spending time with friends and family. Kasey has always harboured a deep love for reading and writing, and she is now lucky enough to be living her dream of being an Author.

I have a craving. A dark urge that I’ve failed to resist despite years of trying to do that very thing. I’ve forced myself to hide behind a mask, a perfect orchestration to hide my true self. After I met her, my wants and needs, my inner most desires changed. She encouraged me to embrace who I truly am, and she was willing to do anything and everything I wanted, giving herself to satisfy my most carnal appetite. Then everything in my carefully managed world came crashing down around me. A moment in time, a loss of control, and the very thing I cherish was nearly taken from me. My fate now lies in her hands. The very life I’ve built for myself … everything I’ve ever done now waits in purgatory, all caused by a lack of focus at a time when my most concentrated attention was needed. The very thing I crave may now be the very end of me.

Excerpt
By the time we get to The Rock Stop it’s already crowded with twenty-somethings, who all look eager to hook up with anyone who’s willing.
I pass by two guys, who are already half-drunk and gawking at my breasts, before I hit the relative safety of the bar area.
“What do you want to drink?” Cali yells over the loud Top Forty music.
“Would I look too conspicuous just holding a glass of water?”
Cali purses her lips at me. I tell her she looks like a duck when she does that but it doesn’t stop her.
“I’ll get you a beer. You don’t have to drink it but I don’t want you to embarrass me or yourself.”
“Yes, Daffy,” I tease.
“I do not have duck lips,” she insists.
“You do when you pucker them like that.”
“I think you’re on crack.”
“Just get the beer.”
She waves in order to get the bartender’s attention but no such luck. He’s busy with a group of girls at the other end of the bar.
“Hey, Babe.” An arm reaches over Cali’s shoulder. “I wasn’t sure I’d see you tonight.”
David nods in my direction. “What’s up?”
He never addresses me by my name even though he’s been hooking up with Cali for over a year and I’ve seen him dozens of times.
David is the kind of guy I always hated in high school. His family has money and he’s never had to work a day in his life for anything. Cars, clothes, expensive vacations, you name it, and his parents have handed it to him on a silver platter. As a result he has a sense of entitlement that knows no bounds.
No doubt that’s why he feels like he can treat Cali any way he pleases and she just keeps coming back for more.
He runs his fingers through his short brown hair. I’m not sure whether it’s a nervous habit or if he thinks that his fingers are like some kind of comb but he does it all the time.
David is a good-looking guy in a frat-boy kind of way. Cali says he played baseball in high school and he looks like he probably still plays sports. He’s not huge but he’s definitely in good shape.
Cali met David at a frat party. Even though she’s never set foot in a college class she’s spent a lot of time at college parties. David likes to brag about the fact that he’s a business major. I don’t see what the big deal is though. I feel like business is a degree for people who don’t really know what they want to do with their lives.
Not that I have any room to talk. Apparently I earned a degree for people who don’t really want a job.
Before I know it, Cali and David have disappeared somewhere and I’m alone at the bar.
Great.
I didn’t even want to come here in the first place.
I have a choice. I can leave or I can order a drink. After the day I’ve had a drink is actually starting to sound appealing.
As soon as the DJ starts mixing, nearly everyone moves to the dance floor. The bar area is now pretty empty except for a young woman seated at the far end. She glances up at me when I approach and gives me the faintest of smiles.
She’s an attractive blonde with stunning ocean blue eyes. She’s the definition of a blonde bombshell. She’s got curves that would give Marilyn Monroe a run for her money.
I order a Crantini and the bartender wastes no time filling my order.
“Tough day?” the blonde asks.
I nod.
“Have a seat.” She waves to the stool next to her.
“Thanks.”
I climb onto the stool and take a sip of my drink. It’s strong and I cough a little as it goes down.
“Russ likes to make them strong.” She laughs. “Maybe he thinks he’ll get lucky at the end of the night.”
The bartender looks like he’s in his mid-thirties and kind of rough. He’s completely bald and built like a brick house. Definitely someone I would want to have on my side if a fight broke out.
“Are you waiting for someone?” I ask. She looks a little too dressed up for the place we’re in. It’s mostly a denim crowd and she’s in a little black dress and pumps.
“You could say that.”
I nod. A cryptic response but I get the impression that she’s not going to say much more about who she’s waiting for.
“So what’s your story?” she asks.
I laugh. “Do I look like I have a story?”
“You definitely look like you have a story.”
“You’ve probably heard it millions times before.”
She glances at her watch. I can’t help but notice it’s a gorgeous Rolex. The blonde doesn’t look that much older than me. I doubt she’s even twenty-five. It makes me wonder how she can afford such an expensive watch. When I look at her more closely, I notice she’s also wearing a diamond tennis bracelet and huge diamond stud earrings. Also very expensive.
Maybe she’s like David and has a generous daddy with lots of money.
“I’ve got a few minutes before my friend gets here. Tell me this story I’ve heard a million times before.”
I take another sip of my drink. She’s right. Russ does like to make them strong.
“I recently graduated from art school. I have a fine arts degree but no professional job and no prospects. My student loans are set to go into repayment and I have no way to pay them. I’m barely making ends meet on my salary busting my ass at the local coffee shop. Pathetic, right?”
She shakes her head. “It’s not pathetic but you’re right. It’s a story I’ve heard a lot. Maybe not a million times. Half a million tops.”
We both laugh. It feels good to laugh about it. At least for one night.
She reaches into her purse, a pricey Coach bag, and pulls out a business card. I expect her to hand it to me but she places it on the bar between us instead.
“I don’t do this very often but I feel bad for you so I’m making an exception.” She points to the card. “You can pick it up if you want to, after I tell you what it’s about. Or you can leave it on the bar. It’s completely up to you.”
My curiosity is definitely piqued. When I glance down at the card I notice it only has two words: The Club followed by a phone number.
“What’s The Club?”
“It’s a kind of dating service.”
I frown. “Do I look like need a date?”
“No, but you said you need money. This is a special kind of dating service for extremely wealthy men.”
I assume that’s how she got her Rolex and other jewelry but I don’t want to be rude. “Are you saying it’s kind of like having a sugar daddy?”
She laughs. “That’s kind of an antiquated term but sort of. Most of the men in The Club are older and they have very specific tastes. Most of them want younger women but more importantly, they want women who will be there whenever and however they want.”
I gulp. Then I whisper. “Are you talking about prostitution?”
She gives me a little smile. “Prostitution implies that you’re with multiple men and they’re paying you for sex. It’s not like that. It’s more like you’re being paid to be one man’s mistress.”
“Are they married?”
She laughs. “Some are. Some aren’t. Does it matter?”
“I think it would to me.”
“Why?”
It’s a good question. I’m not married. He’d be the one doing the cheating.
“Do you mind if I ask how much money you’re talking about?”
“That’s negotiable between you and the man who selects you. It’s called an arrangement. You can negotiate any sort of arrangement you want.”
“Could you give me a ballpark figure?”
“Usually between three and five thousand a month.”
My eyes grow wide at the thought of that kind of money. My ten dollars an hour at the coffee shop, even with overtime and tips, doesn’t even come close to that.
“And that doesn’t include all of the perks. A lot of the men like to provide their girlfriends with generous gifts in addition to their arrangement.”
“You said a lot of the guys are older. How old?”
An image of a geriatric using a walker crosses my mind. I’m not sure I’d be able to have sex with someone that old, if he could still even have sex.
“The guy I have an arrangement with is fifty-four.”
That’s ten years older than my dad. I can feel my stomach start to knot. Am I really considering getting involved with some kind of club and being paid to have sex with a guy who could be older than my father?
The blonde leans in close. “Don’t let his age fool you. He can still perform in bed. And I only have to see him two days a week for a few hours. And my arrangement is non-exclusive. He doesn’t mind if I date other guys.”
“I don’t really date that much,” I confess.
“That’s even better. There are a lot of guys who want exclusive arrangements. Not as many girls go in for that.”
I stare at the business card for a few seconds. Is this something I’m actually considering? I’m just not sure. There’s no doubt that I need the money but I’m not sure about having sex with someone I don’t even know…for money.
“It’s really not that bad,” she insists. “I wasn’t sure at first either but you get used to it. And Alex can be a really sweet guy.”
She makes a point of pushing the business card a little closer to me. “At least meet with Claudia. You can always back out if a guy selects you and you don’t like him.”
I pass my hand over the card and hesitate for a moment. I feel like this is a pivotal moment. Like my whole life could change just by picking up the card.
I take in a deep breath then grab the card from the bar. Now that it’s actually in my hand I feel like calling the phone number is inevitable.

Teaser 




Rose Collins is a recent art school graduate who can’t seem to find a job in her chosen field, is struggling to pay her monthly bills, let alone her college loans while working in a coffee shop.  When a night out with her roommate Cali leads to a chance meeting with a girl named December, a new world is opened up to Rose.
December slips a business card with a phone number onto the bar and explains to Rose that there is another option…. The Club.  It’s basically a dating service for wealthy men who don’t have time for a conventional relationship but want to set up an arrangement with the woman they select in exchange for “gifts”.
Well hello Mr. Rothko!
Jae Rothko is an artist otherwise known as Black Dog, he is the owner of a very successful company also called Black Dog. He is quiet, reserved, confident, and in control, but he has something hidden far beneath the surface that will take the perfect woman to break through.

This is a serial novel and I will say one that I am glad I was given to review. I wasn’t sure what to expect climbing in as I have never read a serial before. That being said I loved it!! I found myself flying through the books, I just couldn’t put my Kindle down. The characters are written wonderfully and the interactions between them all were flawless. I have to say I was a bit leery of Jae in the beginning, but oh he most definitely won me over!  Rose is a strong woman and I’m not sure I could make the decision she did but in the end it all works out. Ren Monterrey has a new reader and I will be waiting to see what other books spin out of her fingertips!!
