Product Description

Violet has magical talent. She can levitate, walk through glass, and be in two places at one time. What happens when Violet discovers true magic in the arms of a new man?

Luke Kemble enjoys the luxury of having Violet, all of her magic and all of her beauty, all to himself. What happens to Luke's illusion of reality when he and the love of his life are threatened by another man, a dangerous one that holds grudges and anger?

Carter Borden never fully recovered from the heartbreak of his ex-wife leaving him. What happens to a damaged man who begins to believe in magic once again?

Follow two men -- Luke and Carter -- as they learn the one truth about Violet's magic (that it's an only an illusion) and the one truth about her love (that it's not).

5.0 out of 5 stars V&V just might be my new favorite Morgan Parker book! 8 January 2015
By Laveda Lynn Kasch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
“Magic happens in life’s seams, the tiny space, like this, that exists between the moments that count.”

First off I have to say that I rarely reread a book, but I'm ready to reread this one already! Violet was.....something else... I loved her and at times hated her too, but she always seemed to pull me back to her side. FOR ME...This book was full of "What just happened here?!?", "Oh no she didn't!" and even "I'm confused!" moments. This book kept me on the edge of my seat, THE. WHOLE. TIME! I started out just reading, taking it all in and then I found myself totally engrossed in it and trying to develop some detective skills to figure it out. I had a lot of guesses what the big twist might be but I didn't pinpoint it down until it just happened. You DO have to watch very closely as to not miss a thing. But no worries on that, I'm sure that when you start reading it you will get sucked into the book as I did. The last thing I have to say is I am VERY happy with the direction Morgan is taking his stories, they're not just love stories anymore. V&V just might be my new favorite MP book.

"Love is the biggest illusion of all, and all it takes is a bit of work - the very thing you hate - to keep it alive."

5.0 out of 5 stars GAH! He does it again. DAMN YOU, MORGAN PARKER. BEAUTIFUL. UNIQUE. UNPREDICTABLE. 12 January 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Before starting this book I had a fairly good idea that I was in for something special. The gorgeous cover alone suggested a magic story was sure to follow. And that’s exactly what ensued.

Violets and Violence is a cleverly crafted and passionately written unique love story. Violet is a magician; an illusionist, a woman with mystery flowing through her blood. She meets Carter when he is chosen from the crowd to assist her on stage. Her beguiling, sexy and playful ways soon cast a spell and Carter is unable to rid Violet from his mind.
They cross paths again, and yet again, each of them seemingly drawn to one another. But Violet’s life isn’t one without complications, one of those being Luke… her partner. Another complication is a person from their past… disgruntled, angry, and seeking revenge.

I don’t want to say any more in relation to the premise, because trying to predict what was to unfold at every twist and turn was one of the things I absolutely adored about this book. Morgan Parker very cleverly gave you just enough information where it was needed without giving anything away.
I think he’s sneaky like that. ;)
He laid each puzzle piece down perfectly, crafting a beautifully unique vision that is Violets & Violence. And I loved that. I loved seeing this book come together one puzzle piece at a time.

A few passages and quotes stood out to me. This one in particular because it was such a beautiful way for the character Luke to show he had been thinking of Violet:
“I closed my eyes and listened, hearing the wind pushing through the leaves. But I also felt it rolling through my soul. I felt the sun slipping over the western horizon, the same sun that I had kissed good morning earlier today, in London, before sending it to this end of the world so it might wake up with Violet and watch over her throughout the day. And now, in the early dusk silence, I was sending it back to the other end of the world, like a game of tennis, except this ball was one of poetic fire.”
Okay, so sure, he could’ve just said “Even though I was miles away I missed her. She was in my thoughts.” But isn’t the former SO much better? Not only do you feel Luke’s devotion in that initial passage, Morgan allows you to see it as well. I love great ‘showing’ in writing, and Morgan does it better than most.

Another was: “Magic happens in life’s seams, the tiny space, like this, that exists between the moments that count.” It’s one of those lines you can read effortlessly, yet the impact is far from simple. It resonates. Sticks. I adore those thought provoking lines.

And finally, I loved this: “She could kill me with a smile in one breath, and then bring me back to life with the most innocent of kisses in the next.” Even though it was just a euphemism on Luke’s part, I could so vividly see Violet doing this to him. That’s how perfect this statement was, and how much of an impact it made on me.

So did I enjoy Violets & Violence? Hell yes! It was unique, beautiful, exceptionally well written, thought provoking, and it kept me on my bloody toes. Not many books can do that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magical Mystery 25 January 2015
By rkoppy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was given this novel as an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Since reading the ARC, I have purchased the e-book & also the paperback – YES, it is that good.

“Magic happens in life's seams, the tiny space, like this, that exists between the moments that count.”

It is no secret that I am a Morgan Parker fan. He has once again written my favorite type of story – a mystery with romance.

The story centers on the main characters Violet, Carter & Luke. Were their lives an illusion just as Violet's performances were. Magic; it is there in many forms…..

Morgan kept my attention with his magical weaving of this story. I continuously tried analyzing the how & why’s of where the story was going. I became a fan of Carter & wanted to rip the hair out of Violet’s head. I could not figure out Luke. (I still can’t.) I don't feel that I can give you a synopsis of the story line without giving you a spoiler. The story is so interwoven. Morgan’s writing style pushed me to finish the story to the end. The end came too quick. Why? I wanted more. That is what reading a novel by Morgan Parked does to me.
I encourage you to read this novel. Is Violet, Carter & Luke's life & love an illusion?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing <3 2 January 2015
By A.Lu. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I finished this book about a week ago, but I've had some trouble trying to find the right words to be able to write this review..

You see, this book got me... As in it satisfied, the way a wonderfully written book can satisfy an avid reader. I was worried that if I rushed writing my review, I might not give this great story enough credit. This still might not be worded well enough...

(As I state in pretty much every review I write: I will not give spoilers, so I won't give away anything to those who haven't read the story yet).

This book was very different in many ways from prior Morgan Parker books. But, it also had some familiarity to it (which is a good thing). There's so much suspense, and twists, some humor, action, sexiness, anger... and it all merged together fantastically in this story.

Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop.. I needed to know what was happening next with these characters.

At the end of this book my mind kept going. This is a great book, one that gets you thinking and questioning situations.

Once again, well done, Mr. Parker.
Five stars <3

5.0 out of 5 stars I See What You Did There 4 January 2015
By Angela Bonnie Shockley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Violets and Violence was such an awesome read! Almost every time I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong. Except for the big twist... I saw it coming a mile away very early on in the story. Don't worry Morgan, I love figuring things out! ;) With that said, I LOVED IT!

I would totally pay to see the Violets show. I would also let Carter manage the bell out of my money if I had any.

I was annoyed with Rinker and Lindsey, as I suppose I should have been. Luke grated on my nerves as well, but he didn't turn out to be as awful as I was expecting.

Violet fascinated me from start to finish. As did Carter. And of course Edie. <3

Morgan Parker has earned five stars for plenty of intrigue, suspense, love, and of course... MAGIC!
