Cover Reveal, Review & Giveaway: L.P Lovell & Stevie.J Cole's "Absolution."

The hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Cover Reveal, Review and Giveaway for L.P Lovell and Stevie. J cole's "Absolution."
Amazon UK:


***NOTE: This book is VERY dark. Please take that into account before reading. ***


All sins are equal in the eyes of God, but I'm not God. One sinner made me his sin, and I can't let men like him live. I want to kill them. Every. Last. One. 
Ezra James is no different. I was going to kill him, but then I found myself obsessed and possessed in the most reverent of ways. I became his sinner, and he became my sin, but the wages of sin is death, so I must kill him. 


The son of a whore, raised by criminals, molded to fit into a world without morals. I've never given a shit about anything until the night I watched a man drop dead at the feet of my little killer. She called to my depravity, and everything in me demanded that I take her, possess her, own her. Some monsters hide behind the faces of angels. 

Damned. Broken. Irredeemable. 

Through blood, absolution shall be found.

Review: Surj 

L.P Lovell and Steve J Cole's "Absolution" was a book that was banned by Amazon for a short time. Well, if that wasn't like a beacon of light calling out to me, I don't know what is. This book had my name written all over it... a dark read with a synopsis that gave me goosebumps, plus a big ass warning (on the first couple of pages) that kinda said anything goes so turn the first page at your own peril and I almost felt like these authors were daring me, goading me to click. So of course I bit the bait and clicked and holy mother in heaven, Ezra and Evie's story was..... C.R.A.Z.Y!!!! In fact I would go so far as to say this one is up there with the best of the warped, twisted, fucked up reads I have ever read. "Absolution" really was unputdownable. 

He is brutal, but something in his ruthlessness is beautiful. Something that should
seem so violent, so wrong- seems so rewarding and divine in it's own right. 

There were so many "WTF," "NO WAY" and "THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN!!!" moments that left my heart rate in a constant state of tachycardia and my nerves teetering on the edge, ready for the next event that would lead to a stomach churning, jaw dropping moment (and trust me, there were so many I lost count). This was no run of the mill dark story. This really was a cut above with absolutely no sugar coating whatsoever. The lead protagonists were as far from conventional as you could possibly get. In fact, I don't think I've ever met two fictional characters that have gotten such a reaction out of me. Both of them were stark raving bonkers but boy did they make me feel. My heart broke, it soared, I came close to tears and there were even moments this couple had me in fits of giggles... usually at the most inopportune of moments. 

There on the back seat is a guy, eyes wide open and staring lifelessly 
at the ceiling. His head is at an odd angle, and his jaw is
hanging open. She snapped his neck. What is she? Jackie- fucking- Chan? 

I shouldn't have liked Ezra. i really shouldn't. He was the worst of the worst, the baddest of all bad asses but I couldn't help but be intrigued by him. And Evie, one minute her story was ripping my heart in two and the next, I was almost excited at what she would do next. She was as unpredictable as they come, a loose cannon where no man was safe. I understood her motives as barmy as some of them were and I really took to her character. 

I am death dressed as his deepest desire: a weak woman. but I am not weak 

Was this book a love story? Ultimately yes but throw into the mix possession, obsession and compulsion, sin and absolution and a sprinkling of angels, demons, god and the devil himself and hey presto, you've got yourself one hell of an insane, brutal, barbaric, gritty, gruesome and very depraved story that for some reason, had me rooting for this couple and those three magic words. Did I get them? You'll have to wait and see. 

The writing in "Absolution" was truly outstanding. It's so difficult to describe it ... was it almost poetic? I don't know but the way things were described... emotions, desires, actions and inner thoughts had me pinned to the pages. I felt those words like you wouldn't believe. The impact they had on my overall enjoyment of the book was second to none and I found myself highlighting like a crazy lady!!!  

"You make me want to hurt you, to make you cry while I fuck you."

This is my first read by these authors but I'm putting my hands up now and saying I will absolutely be stalking them from now on. I can't wait to read more from this pair. 

I rated "Absolution" a well deserved ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

"You're a monster, little killer," I whisper against her skin. A perfect monster.
