Product Description

Product Description

Dark Crime Romance/Psychological Thriller. This book is not suggested for younger readers due to the sexually explicit content, violence and over all theme. This is not your typical romance, and will not appeal to all readers.

Three people irrevocably linked.
A heartless killer.
A shady businessman.
A woman caught in the cross-fire.

Braxton Alexander is a beast without remorse; a vessel filled with hate. Imprisoned for the murder of the one girl who loved him, now he is free.

Brycen Cole knows he must stop Braxton from taking everything he has and turning it to ash.

Gemma Woods has loved Brycen for years, but ever so slowly the happiness she once felt in the arms of her lover has turned to fear and resentment.

Braxton has one goal, one thought, and one mission – destroy Brycen Cole, by any means necessary.
He will not stop.
He will not fail.
Like a juggernaut, he will keep coming, destroying everything in his wake.

Brycen runs a successful corporation and provides a lot of pay-checks; he also has a shady past and a dark talent for hiding things.

Gemma spots the wolf in sheep’s clothing but cannot stop gravitating towards him again and again.

What happens when the lines between good and evil become blurred?
What happens when the one you love is the one you should fear?
What happens when the one you fear becomes the only one you can trust?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 5 May 2015
By Melissa72 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I just loved this book! In it we experience the story from three different points of view, giving us a look into each of the characters. Gemma who is in a terrible, abusive relationship with Brycen for several years, who treats her like crap but she realizes it way too late, and she doesn't see a way out of it. Brycen, as you may have guessed is another one of the characters we follow. People think that Brycen is a great guy, how wrong are they! Finally there is Braxton, the character who is the reason for the title. He wants his retribution. For what? Well our man Braxton has spent the last 8 years in prison convicted of murdering his girlfriend. The girlfriend who just happened to be Brycen's sister. Braxton blames Brycen for landing him in jail in the first place and sets out to take everything away from him in retribution. During his stay in prison Braxton becomes a dark, hardened man, one who no longer feels anything but anger, hatred, and other dark feelings. As he sets about his task, there is one thing he didn't count on. Gemma. I feel if I add much more I will leak out spoilers, and I certainly don't want to do that! I will just say read the book! It is so worth it. It takes you for a roller coaster ride that pulls you into the story and will have you on the edge of your seat turning pages until the very end. This is definitely five star material. Kudos to Ms. Dowson for an awesome creation! I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Retribution - Dark. Raw.. Emotional... Erotic.... Passionate..... Leaves The Reader Craving for The Next Book! 5 May 2015
By Erotic Romance Book Blog with Sandy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I read Mandy Lou Dowson's first book Stepbrother Mine and loved it. When I found out she had another book coming out I searched and found an application to receive an ARC and was lucky enough to get one. This book according to the synopsis was to be very different than her first book and had me curious as to how well she would do at writing something with the darker side shining so brightly.

This book has the perfect title. It isn't just about revenge, it is about the attempt to bestow punishments for criminal acts in very personal way. This is part one of a dark erotic romance series, with a cliffhanger. Retribution has verbal, emotional and physical abuse along with hot passionate sex scenes, a reawakening of souls giving one the desire to live and change their current path.

The author did a fabulous job developing her characters for the first part of this series! Anyone who reads various series realizes the first book is about getting the reader to connect with the characters, love them or hate them. Mandy Lou Dowson was able to achieve that deeper connection with the main characters making the reader want to know more, especially with the cliffhanger she provided!

I am giving this book a 4.8 star rating! It is on my read again and again list. If you love your dark erotic romances I do not believe you will be disappointed with this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Retribution Review 9 May 2015
By Jess (Nerdy Dirty & Flirty) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 stars

This was an interesting story of three people who are interwoven in an intricate and almost perfectly executed plan of retribution.

Braxton has spend the last number of years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend. He has used this time wisely; planning ans scheming the perfect way to destroy Brycen Cole. Brycen has spend the same number of years as a business man with some pretty shady connection. But he has also grown to love Gemma and brought her into his world. Gemma is the girl who had nothing and fell in love with the powerful and attractive business owner.

We meet these characters, we follow them and see how seamless their lives begin to intertwine. There is a perfectly set web of destruction, Braxton had it all worked out until Gemma got under his skin. Gemma was just living her life, not expecting any more from it and never saw how it all changed until it was completely different. Brycen thought he was the king of the world until things fell apart.

The story was interesting and kept my attention but there were times that I felt lost. This a twisted love triangle and there were times that I was irritated with all of the players. I liked the story and it leaves you with another twist at the end. I am looking forward to the next installment to see where this story will end.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dowson does Dallas (not really but she does write exceedingly good books) 10 May 2015

I love Mandy Dowson's writing and this book just cemented her as one of my favourite authors ever. This book is so well thought out, so well executed, this story is hot, angst-ridden and very,very clever. indeed.
Braxton has suffered, suffered at the hands of another and is accused of a crime he did not commit.The vicious murder of his girlfriend. Not only accused, but found guilty and sentenced to jail time. While inside he plots and plans revenge on the one man who he believes brought about his downfall, sister to the murder victim, Brycen.
Brycen is a hot guy who is now in a relationship with the lovely Gem. Gem is starting to realise that Brycen is not all that he seems, he is in fact a ruthless monster, and when she meets Brax, well, sparks fly and the two are engulf in the flames of desire. This book has everything that people whinge about, a threesomes, cheating, cliffhanger and I love it!!! I love that Mandy always goes against the grain and does her own thing. I am a firm believer that people should just read a book and judge it on its merits, rather than having a list of 'will not reads.' Books are not designed to fit into our expectations. They are supposed to thrill you, anger you and excite you. Mandy's book do all these things. Buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tall, Dark and Dangerous! 5 May 2015
By SpanishLady - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Although this is not what I normally read, I must say I really enjoyed and got into it completely. A very complex and real occurrence in life, it delves into the way a selfish twisted person can change an otherwise normal man.

Normal Braxton Alexander is changed into a vengeful dark Daegan Crane after spending 8 years in prison. Now all he lives for is getting vengeance for the wrong that was done to him. But he never counted on Gemma, oh she was part of the plan, but now she has put a kink in it.

Gemma thought she was in love, thought she had it made and then along comes this dark mysterious man. He puts ideas in her head and butterflies in her stomach. Why does she always fall for the 'Bad Boys?

Brycen Crane thinks he's on top of the world, he has money, Gemma, he can get away with anything! He is obsessed with his Gem and now he must hide away with her and show her just how much he loves her.

The clock is ticking for Gemma. I can't wait for the next book. I love it!

I was gifted this book for an honest review.
