It needs to be something like…” he trailed off in thought. “The three muskillteers?” I offered. 600 pages later and not a single sane person here. Did I love it? Yes. Did it make me question my own sanity? Also yes. Would I recommend it? If you don't mind the trigger warnings, yes. You already know I'm a sucker for books by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti and this one, my Goodreads friends, was an insane ride I couldn't get enough of. It felt darker than the rest and there was a lot of grey area here, but ... I just couldn't help myself. 》》The Plot《《 With a traumatic past, a murderous spree and an escape from a highly secured prison for disturbed criminals, Brooklyn finds herself captured and sold into an underground Hunger Games style event at an elitist secret club, only to win and to be sold again. But her new Irish captor treats her better than she has been treated in a very long time and the man she has to share the basement with fascinates her. And there's also Coco Pops. So when Niall, her captor, offers to train her to be a better killer and work with him, Brooklyn accepts enthusiastically. “Give me another shot,” I demanded. “I’ll kill the next one so good you’ll wish you could get inside my body and possess me. You’ll wanna get inside me so bad, Hellfire, it’ll make you ache.” His throat bobbed. “What d’ya just say?” After agreeing to help his nephew Kyan ( yes, Kings of Quarantine fans should be excited), Niall finds himself with a new person in his house. One that makes him confused and makes him want things that he thought were dead and buried ever since his wife has been murdered. He's not sure what he wants and his father's (who also happens to be the head of the Irish mob) arrangement for a marriage for him with a Russian mafia bride only tangle things more. Plus, there's also Mateo, the man he keeps in his basement and who refuses to give him the information he needs and who also seems to be just as fascinated by Brooklyn. “The past is done,” he growled. “Which is why I’ll offer you somethin’ far better than a dead man ever can.” “What?” I asked on a breath. “Vengeance. Make a list, love. Of everyone who has ever wronged you deep enough to die for it. I’ll track ‘em down and deliver them to you with a weapon of your choice.” Hate, lust, spice and madness are the main stars in this book and, with shared POVs between Mateo, Brooklyn and Niall, the story is a complete page turner with fast paced action, a lot of funny moments and its own special brand of insanity. 》》Characters and Relationships《《 👩🏻 Brooklyn "I needed a saviour, so I became my own. She didn’t ride in on a white horse, she came with hellfire at her back, her body coated in a suit of sin. I’m not the girl you dragged into the woods that night. I’m your darkest nightmare brought to life.” She's insane and childish and all innocent and psycho at once. She has absolutely no filter and that leads to some of the best verbal waterfalls I've ever read and some situations that left me in tears of laughter. Take Harley Quinn and double the madness, throw some innocence in the mix to stir things up, an obsession for Coco Pops and remove all the filters and you've got yourself one hell of a female MC. Unique just doesn't cover it all. 🧔🏼Niall "I came damn close to falling all the fucking way down to the street below.  No such luck of course. The Devil didn't want any competition so he'd refused my admittance to hell more times than I could count by now. He'd done me the courtesy of making sure I lived within my own personal hell at all times though, so I guessed he was winning." Ever since Niall was introduced in Kings of Quarantine (which might just be my favorite series from the sisters) I was wondering what was going on inside his head. And I was not ready for it. There was a lot of pain and blame there, but there was also such a strong 'Devil may care' vibes and flickers of madness that I'm still trying to figure him out. 🧑🏽‍💼Mateo "Satan, if you’re listening. I know this one was made by you. And bravo. He’s a work of art. Did you sculpt him out of the same clay you made Niall with because ho-ly fuck I’m not sure which of them gets me hotter." I think he might be the sanest of them three, but that's a lot like saying 0×10 is greater than 0 to be honest. His quiet demeanor and his need for vengeance for being held prisoner is intriguing and I feel like we have yet to see the full extent of his demons. 👩🏻🧔🏼Brooklyn and Niall “Oh Hellfire, I spent so long thinking I was the only one. It’s been so lonely. Are there more like us?” His brows drew together as understanding flickered in his gaze. “Not many,” he said in a gravelly tone. “Shame we hate each other.” Their teasing is the best and when they go full psycho but keep the behavior of a 5 year-old I don't know whether to laugh or cry or be frustrated. There's a lot of chemistry going on here, but the slow-burn is a killer, with Niall being haunted by memories of his wife's death and with Brooklyn being inexperienced and with no trust left in people. “It was so dark in this house before you came here,” he mumbled. “Did you get new lightbulbs when I arrived?” I whispered. It's infuriating and funny and at some point I was soooo not trying to figure them out anymore. Just sitting tight and enjoying the ride. I'm waiting for some fireworks, of course,  because my two little psychos deserve some happiness. "Pretty is what you call girls who are sweet and bland and boring. You're not pretty. You're the only thing in the room no matter how full it is. You're the kind of woman men go to war for. Even beautiful doesn't cut it for you. You're breath taking in the most extraordinary way." I love how there's sooooo much intensity in every scene with the two of them, but there's also layers and layers of restraint and mental talks on Niall's side about why he should stay away from her. I mean, the guy kills and tortures without blinking, but when it comes to giving in into his intuition and feelings he goes all logical and temperate?? 👩🏻🧑🏽‍💼Brooklyn and Mateo “If I were capable of crawling into the shadows of the past, I would string up your enemies by their necks and set a fire at their feet,” he snarled. They are still kind of slow burn, but at least they're feeding us the spice we were craving. Mateo is definitely protective and possessive of her and I love it how he gets so obsessed so quickly with her. And he's this big bad wolf who didn't crack under torture but he's also this cinnamonroll who brushes her hair and remembered she wanted to hold someone's hand. “Ooh, shit, did I turn you on too?” My eyes dipped to his sweatpants where sure enough there was a huge bulge pressing against them. “Oh my god, I don’t know my own power.” Typical Brooklyn behavior is a thing in their relationship as well and she has a looot of lines that leave Mateo utterly speechless (not that he was very talkative to begin with). But I like how she bargains with Niall for little freedoms for Mateo and how that seems to be the first kindness he experiences. They are definitely good for each other in their little psycho ways. 》》Favorite Scenes《《 👩🏻Brooklyn 'passing' the test 🧑🏽🧔🏼Kyan calling Niall for help 👩🏻🧔🏼Brooklyn hearing Niall's laugh 🧔🏼👩🏻Niall seeing Brooklyn fighting in the games "Ho-ly fuck, I think I'm in love," I announced loudly. 🧑🏽‍💼👩🏻Matteo analyzing Brooklyn 👩🏻🧑🏽‍💼Brooklyn giving Matteo a pillow 🧔🏼👩🏻Niall asking Brooklyn to work for him ⚔The Ass versus Arse fight 🧑🏽‍💼👩🏻Matteo going all "who hurt you?!" on Brooklyn 🧑🏽‍💼Matteo remembering her secret wish to hold someone's hand and taking her hand to calm her down 👩🏻Brooklyn's question with no filter 👩🏻🧑🏽‍💼Brooklyn telling Matteo about her plan to seduce Niall while he was obviously possessive and jealous "Maybe I’ll do a dance for him next time. A striptease.” “No,” Mateo snarled forcefully. “Don’t do that.” “It’s not like I can’t dance, Dead Man. I’ve got moves.” “That wasn’t my p-” “I’ll grind my ass on him then he’ll peel my sweatpants down and he’ll be all like ‘great leprechauns, that’s the finest arse I’ve ever seen’,” I did a perfect impression of him but Mateo didn’t crack a smile. “Then I’ll let him have his wicked way with me and stab him in the eye!” “You. Will. Not. Fuck. Him,” Mateo spat. 🧑🏽‍💼👩🏻Matteo brushing Brooklyn's hair 👩🏻Brooklyn's demands 🎊Anastasia putting Conner in his place "Ah, the poor woman who is to be saddled with my youngest and most irritating brother for a groom," Conner interjected, offering her his hand.

Totally not ready for this. The only problem: it's addictive and I'm soooo looking forward to the next book. The slow-burn nearly killed me and all the seriously hilarious retorts Brooklyn delivers have me coming back for more. Again,  Caroline and Susanne did not disappoint. "Roses are red, violets are blue, watch out beastie, I’m going to kill you."

This book gives you a complete look at three completely broken characters, past, and present, and it’s far from roses. It’s filled with darkness, demons, dark humor, and craziness. Some may be a little more unhinged than others. I also feel like I saw a supercharged Harley Quinn and the joker at times. Many of us did, and it’s true. It is phenomenal. The book is full of steam, crazy, character development, a fantastic plot, and so much more. Read the trigger warning. There is a ton of them, and it is not for the faint of heart. This book pulled me in, and I pulled an all-nighter to see what would happen next. The author left me wanting more. If you like dark and crazy, this book is for you. As I sit here writing this review, I am changing my four stars to five because I can't find any constructive criticism. Not one thing, It’s a beast of a book. I can’t wait for the next book.

    May 2022: 2nd re-read. Just as good as the first time. Brooklyn remains one of my all time favorite female characters 🖤 Sept 2021: Original review. “If she was crazy, then so was I and I didn't for one second believe being a psychopath was a sign of insanity.

Brooklyn remains one of my all time favorite female characters 🖤 Sept 2021: Original review. “If she was crazy, then so was I and I didn't for one second believe being a psychopath was a sign of insanity. We were just a persecuted profession and we needed to stick the fuck together in this world of judgmental bastards.” Holy Mother of Jesus Christ. This was something else. I’m used to reading dark books, but I think it’s the first time I read the love story of three clinically diagnosed psychopaths and, against all logic and common sense, I actually loved it. This book worked so well, I was invested from beginning to end. I understood the characters (dunno what that says about me lol) and their motivations, traumas and desires. And this story is proof of how talented these sisters are as authors. This same story in the hands of other authors could’ve been a colossal hot mess. But Caroline and Susanne made this crazy, fucked up story to work. Not only did this work, the Death Club is an amazing book. Probably in my top 10 of this year. Keep in mind these characters are psychopaths who find pleasure in killing, alright? I don't want to romanticize any of this. Niall is a hitman who kills for money and loves violence. Brooklyn feels pleasure from pain and from inflicting it. And Mateo hates women and can’t have sex with them without hurting them, or even killing them. Although, weirdly enough I found him to be the more sane of the three. So you know, this book has a lot of trigger warnings and it is its own brand of insane. But it was really well written and developed, that’s why it’s so good. And for a book with so many dark themes, murder and fucked up situations, I actually laughed out loud a lot. Like, a lot. Brooklyn is an amazing main character. She’s so naive and innocent, and the jarring combination of that next to her thirst for blood created something really lovable somehow. She was hilarious and completely chaotic and unpredictable, which I loved. And her dirty mind and obsession with dicks and butts was fabulous 🤣 Niall had already picked my interest while reading KoQ but reading his POV made me fall hard for him. His angst and self-loathing got to me so good. The way he hated himself for feeling something for another woman after his wife’s murder 10 years prior was the kind of angst I live for. And it made his chemistry with Brooklyn a million times hotter. Their banter was out of this world hot. They beated the shit outta each other and would end up tangled together, all hot and bothered. And it was the hottest thing. Seriously, at one point I had to sit down while reading because my knees were jelly. Mateo was really interesting and complex. His backstory and the origin of his traumas was very unexpected and original. But there was something holding me back from fully loving him. Niall is a psychopath who enjoys killing people but he goes after rapists and doesn’t hurt women. Mateo on the other hand, the fact that he hates women, I don’t know y’all, call me crazy lol but it was a turn off for me. But his devotion and obsession with Brooklyn were deliciously addictive. So I'm not complaining. It shouldn't surprise anyone at this point, but I'm hoping we get a real menage relationship in this series and the two men get involved together as well as with Spider. I'm convinced there were a lot of hints and subtle foreshadowing, so I'm holding onto hope until next book, which comes out... ... in 6 months ...

Didn’t happen. The bulk of this book was nonsensical ramblings from the characters. I love the idea of some crazy, but it wasn’t crazy badass with some psycho, it was crazy mental institution that the authors tried making funny. Let me be clear, they weren’t making fun of mental health, but their way of showing crazy was a constant stream of internal rambling of phrases that don’t make sense in a way that cues the reader that there’s a few screws loose in the leads’ heads. The female lead. There could’ve been such potential. But instead of making her sound like a tough chick they made her sound like a little baby with mental illness trying so hard to be funny. Again. I get it. The authors want you the reader to think she’s a funny psycho but she just comes off as obnoxious and dumb... and slow-ish? Her ramblings were just childish? They tried to make her funny by her messing up words to songs like “Hokey Cokey” instead of “hokey pokey”. The way she talked to some people with her ramblings just made her sound dumb. She was part of a hunger games type situation and in it she said to this one girl with a ponytail “stupid ponytail b***h is there a horse’s a** under there”... like stupid little comments like that. It lowers the potential of this book. It’s these baby-ish immature phrases that just annoyed the heck outta me and killed this book. I wanted a badass psycho killer female lead with skills, instead I got a coocoo for Cocoa Puffs girl who’s IQ points are getting lower by every dumb thing and long winded ramble that comes out of her mouth. Her lack of sexual experience coupled with what comes out of her mouth from a sexual standpoint is cringe-worthy. I’m not even going to get into the guys. I feel like the authors were trying to channel Harley Quinn but failed. There’s a fine line of psycho, but let’s not forget that while Harley is psychotic, she is also a very well educated female lead. This lead was not. The male leads aren’t as awful and disappointing. I felt like majority of this book was getting nowhere. The bulk information was the beginning and the very end, then it’s overwhelmed by junk dialogue that takes over the entire middle of the book with no real progression. I notice the next book is out in 2022. Dear authors, please for the love of everything, fix this next book.

"But I think I like yours the best.” Star Rating : 4.5/5 Stars POV : Multiple Cliffhanger : Yes Hero : Niall , Mateo Heroine : Brooklyn Pace of the story : Moderate Angst Rating : 6/10 Heat Rating : 7/10 Triggers Involved : Past Trauma , Torture scenes he couldn’t realise his cruelty was my weakness.” Plot Summary : Brooklyn is Messed up in the head. And she never disagreed. Her methods and way of thinking are different and she is a raw weapon. The one who attacks first and then asks questions. Life has never been easy for her. She has had her share of horrors and there is no way she would let anyone break her. That is until she catches the eye of an animal even more twisted than her. Niall is the unhinged one in his family. Ever since he lost his wife years ago to a grusome murder , his head has never been right. Killing is the only thing that satisfied him to some extent. That is until he lays eyes on a girl whose whole soul spoke to his . She was just like him. Unhinged, just like him and there was no way he was letting her go. Mateo has been Niall's prisoner for months. Things become a bit more interesting in his bleak life when Niall brings home another prisoner. A girl who intrigues him. With her mouth that never stops talking, she is the one thing he wants all for himself and there is no way he is going to let Niall take that away from him too! a man without fear is a man without limits. I hadn't had any limits in ten long years.” Overall Opinion : These authors, it's like there is no trope they can excel in. When I first read about Niall in the Quarantine series, I knew how unhinged and crazy he was and how challenging it would be to write his book but damn these ladies hit the nail right on the head!! Niall, Brooklyn and Matteo have a take that will literally make you laugh so much and shiver front terror too. All these three are unhinged and together they are anyone's nightmare. The best part of this series of Brooklyn. She was this chatterbox woman who had gone through some terrible things but she never lost her spark. The things she said, omg, she had me damn near dying from laughter!!! Absolutely amazing! If you want to read an MFM take about three psychos who are so different yet so perfect together, then don't hesitate to read this one!! Also, the cliffhanger in this book was much milder than what I expected from these authors but it was still bad!! Highly recommended from my side!

In this case, make that several someones. This really is a forage through pure insanity served up with a side order of total crazy. Slow burn with lots of build-up Brooklyn's world is deranged it’s like she’s a fucked up Alice in her own personal psychedelic wonderland her persona is so erratic but also whimsical she’s a strange mix of innocent and savage and she has the homicidal maniac sweet little girl persona with her lolly pops and hair bunches and wacky dress sense down pat. It’s a toss-up whether she will kiss or kill you I don’t think she even fully knows herself it all depends on what mood she's in. She’s Chaotic totally unpredictable needing lessons on control as she does does everything so spontaneously which puts herself at a clear disadvantage She’s definitely a bit of a liability being so unpredictable with her behaviour Spider/Brooklyn acts on all of her emotions in that present moment and like a child she’s so easily sidetracked. We met Niall as well as Brooklyn in a previous series and I was so intrigued to continue on with their story here and it turned out to be so much more than I expected it to be. This is told from three points of view Niall the youngest son of an Irish mobster family he is totally unhinged and very much touched with his crazy. He’s lost greatly in his life and suffered tragedy and he is now the end result of all this pain. Then there's Mateo locked up in a cage in the basement Niall is torturing him for information on a buried money stash so he has the means to escape his life and family who he hates. Mateo is equally as dangerous he’s the fixer for a cartel and he lives with constant daily demons. Both are equally drawn to our girl lured in by the echoes of her pain seeing in her their ideal counterpart but both fighting this connection tooth and nail, especially Niall. We are also briefly introduced to a third male mad jack an inmate at the psychiatric hospital Brooklyn resided in not much is yet known regarding him and I’m very much intrigued to learn more about him going forward. I’m especially looking forward to seeing how the pieces of this will all fit together Niall and Mateo are sworn enemies and want each other dead and their only common interest is the girl both desire to own for themselves. This ends on a cliffhanger that definitely left me wanting more and I can’t wait to dive into the conclusion of this. These authors always deliver fabulously and I’m never disappointed. Be aware though that this one definitely skirts all moral boundaries and is packed full of bloodshed and violence throughout zero apologies given which is just how I like them Reviewed By Beckie Bookworm https://www.bookbub.com/profile/63435390

I mean all the cops have to do is read this book themselves and I’m sure they would understand, right? This book is about three people with demons that have made them a little unhinged (okay maybe more than a little). You have Brookyln who experienced a horrid event that led to her making friends with the devil in her head. If you read the Brutal Boy series you know Niall already. The loss of his wife has left him with guilt and a need for blood. Then you have Mateo who has had a dark childhood and lacks control once he gets lost in his head. Brooklyn is kidnapped and sold multiple times before she ends up at Royaume D'elite, an elite club where all kinds of shady, criminal activity happens. They host the death games where 15 people fight to the death in a maze while members watch. After winning, Brooklyn is bought by Niall and taken back to his place. She is locked in the basement and finds she has a roommate. Mateo has been held captive for months for information Niall has been torturing him for. But no matter what he won’t say a word. Most of the story is just these three which were different from the other books the girls have written. I enjoy it just being this trio because we got to know them better and get a feel of how they interact with each other. Niall and Brooklyn’s banter was hilarious. I also loved Mateo’s possessiveness of Brooklyn. And of course there is the hate between Niall and Mateo. I’m definitely looking forward to how they will handle this in the next books. I think they would make a good team but there is a lot of growing and forgiveness that needs to be done which I don’t think either character is willing to do on their own. Luckily they both have a certain girl to help push them. I was so excited when this book was announced. I loved Naill from the Brutal Boys series so I just knew this book would be amazing. But I was thrown a curve ball because Niall wasn’t even my favorite character! Shocker, I know. I mean okay, he was a close second only about .00004 points behind. But no, Brooklyn took over my heart and soul. She was a riot and I couldn’t get enough of her. Her inner dialogue is just as good as her conversations with the guys. I love whenever she got common phrases wrong, especially when she would argue they were right. The fact that these authors were able to take this insane girl and make her someone I inspired to be is terrifying, but honestly, I'm okay with it. I mean she is a great killer and has two handsome devils fighting for her attention. I think she is doing just fine. So we are once again gifted a cliffhanger, though I don’t think it’s as bad as it could have been. I was scared at one point near the end that the book would be over. Thankfully the lovely sisters decided to not be as cruel as they’ve been in the past. I’m still going to be anxiously waiting for the next book though. Anyway, I’m off to name some kitchen knives and google where I can find Coco Pops. We can travel again, right? Maybe it’s time for a trip to England.

    Picture a character that’s a mix of Aileen Wuornos (infamous female serial killer), Kill Bill, and Harley Quinn all mixed up into a batshit crazy yet lovable woman named Brooklyn Meadow. Aka The Bully Butcher. Aka Little Psycho. Brooklyn has always been a little off her rocker but when an attack on her happened that left her feeling a shattered, she decided to seek vengeance and went on a killing spree. She almost accomplished her job but two survived. She was then put in a mental institution. A Picture a character that’s a mix of Aileen Wuornos (infamous female serial killer), Kill Bill, and Harley Quinn all mixed up into a batshit crazy yet lovable woman named Brooklyn Meadow. Aka The Bully Butcher. Aka Little Psycho. Brooklyn has always been a little off her rocker but when an attack on her happened that left her feeling a shattered, she decided to seek vengeance and went on a killing spree. She almost accomplished her job but two survived. She was then put in a mental institution. Again she learned that men are nasty creatures who do horrible things to women’s bodies without their consent. She escaped and has been on the run. Here’s where the book it’s totally interesting. She gets captured by men who end up selling her. And then gets put in this Hunger Games scenario where she has to fight for her life and she catches the eye of a Irish mafia fixer, Niall. He becomes the second main character of the book. He is also completely mentally unstable and bat shit crazy and you cannot help it just fall in love with this man. “ hellfire. A sad, sad boy who felt as empty and alone as me. “ We call him Hell Fire. He ends up buying Brooklyn. And I don’t think he quite knows what he wants to do with her but possibly train her to become maybe a partner? He’s very intrigued by Brooklyn but wants to remain her captor as he is dealing with some grief from losing someone close to him. And he’s also going through a arranged marriage that his father has requested. And then we meet the third main character, Mateo. * I’m telling you all right now I am laying full claim to this man.* He is a Mexican cartel fixer who has been a captive living in a small metal box basically of Nialls. Mateo refuses to give information to Niall that he wants. He’s had an extremely rough life and hasn’t seen the light of day for months while shitting in a bucket in the corner for six months. Brooklyn nicknamed him Dead Man. These two captives form a very interesting bond. And Brooklyn actually gets under Nialls skin as well. -There is sexy time with Brooklyn and both men. But not all three together. - It’s a totally unconventional trio of crazy ass people who are brutal killers and completely hilarious. I am not new to these authors, but what I can definitely say is noone can do dark comedy like they can. I haven’t read anything that comes close to the writing style of this duo Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti. I thought I had another series of theirs labeled as my favorite. But this book literally grabbed my attention from the first word to the very last. It does leave off on a cliffhanger. There’s going to be definite triggers. I mean this is full of murder. Talks of rape. More murder. blood and drama. And mayhem. But in between all of this and the hot ass sex.. it’s full of comedy. I mean, I was laughing through the entire book out loud. 5/5 (I won’t lower my rate over it, but I really wish that I didn’t sign up for this ARC and then spent the entire day reading it only to see that the next book won’t come out till March 2022... omfg 😫)

    3.5 stars The Death Club is the introduction to the Dead Men Walking series. At first, I was a little intrigued by the characters. Then I quickly found myself getting bored. Mostly because things were moving at such a slow pace. It just made it so easy to get distracted by everything else around me. When I finally found something that could keep my attention it was basically too late. The book was almost over, and I just didn't know how I felt. Now I'm pretty sure I've met Niall before.

Looking at other reviews for this book, I would have met him in another series written by Caroline. Unfortunately, I never actually finished that one so I might dive back into that one before I read the sequel for this one. Not that I think it would help fill in any blanks for this series since it's about different people. I just think it will put me in the mood to continue on with this series. Maybe, not sure. In the end, I think the gangs are pretty interesting. I just hope things flow a bit better in the next book. I don't think I can handle another slow-paced plot when it comes to gangs and these guys.

    This book was a whole lot of crazy and it was everything my little psychotic heart desired. I immediately latched on to the heroine and her neurotic thoughts. She's completely unabashed and on so many ways innocent but unfortunately the world has been cruel to her and something in her has snapped. Brooklyn is a product of her circumstances and it's rather heartbreaking seeing how the world failed her. In fact both her men are the same way and been molded into savage killers with no moral compass This book was a whole lot of crazy and it was everything my little psychotic heart desired. I immediately latched on to the heroine and her neurotic thoughts. She's completely unabashed and on so many ways innocent but unfortunately the world has been cruel to her and something in her has snapped. Brooklyn is a product of her circumstances and it's rather heartbreaking seeing how the world failed her. In fact both her men are the same way and been molded into savage killers with no moral compass. What I find funny about this book is how there is pretty much one single setting for the entirety of the book and yet 500+ pages and I never wanted it to end. I was riveted from the start and devoured this book and all the crazy drama even laughing hysterically out loud like a loon when I was taken off guard. Brooklyn has no filter and the way her brain works is beyond fascinating because at the end of the day this girl is living her life to the best of her ability and enjoying it in a way only she can. To be clear I LOVED this book and I will forever have a crazy girl crush on Brooklyn. While I'm bummed it seems to be less reverse harem and more menage (as she only has two by the end), with Brooklyn really there's no telling what will happen or who she'll pull under her spell next. I'm already bummed this book is a duet because I'm dreading finishing. The dark crazy intensity doesn't let up let up and I'm a junkie for it all. This book is not for the faint of heart, prudes or those without a little darkness in their soul, then again we're always accepting applications over here on the dark-side 😈 😈 😈

    I've wanted more of Niall ever since he popped up in Everlake prep, everyone loves a serial killer right! I suppose technically he's an assassin, but he loves a good killing spree...potato potatoe. This book is pretty crazy, if you want humour, hijinx and the odd bit of murder this is one for you. It's about three deeply flawed people who have been broken and remade with darkness and hellfire. Two are a little bit crazier than the other, which was kinda restful when in his POV.

Mateo is still a bit of a mystery compared to Niall and Brooklyn. I'm looking forward to the next one and seeing where the story goes, though I'm happy if it's just a good laugh and one long killing spree.

Brooklyn is the MFC, who has been living out in the streets for a long time until one day she is kidnapped and sold. She has to fight for her own life in a death game and ends up being bought (again) by Niall. However, she won’t be the only captive. Niall had also kidnapped Mateo, the other MMC, who he has been torturing for months to find out where Mateo hid loads of money he stole from one cartel. If there is something that is quite unique in this book is the main characters’ inner monologue, especially Niall and Brooklyn’s. They are quite crazy and you cannot stop laughing at their thoughts. Also, seeing Brooklyn trying to become a professional killer was hilarious. Mateo’s personality is darker and more serious. I didn’t feel that much connection to him in this book so I am hoping that improves in the next books. As the book is quite heavy on getting to know the characters, I found the plot a bit slow, especially once Brooklyn was in Niall’s house. However, there are lots of elements that have been introduced which I am quite excited about, especially around the gangs and Niall’s family. It wouldn’t be a Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti’s book without a cliffhanger, I cannot wait for the next one to find out what happens next!

    This books very teeters on the edge between 2 and 3 stars for me. Because while it was entertaining enough for me to keep reading, the more I thought about it the less I rooted for the relationships and characters. They’re a mess and damned hot mess. The men, Niall especially, are toxic. He treats Brooklyn like shit a lot of the time and keeps Mateo in a cage...like I don’t know it’s just hard to root for someone like that. The only reason it somewhat works is that they’re all psychotic. Basical This books very teeters on the edge between 2 and 3 stars for me.

Because no one in their right of mind should be straddled with these guys and their brand of crazy. But because all three have all got plenty of screws lose you’re like oh okay maybe this is a case of there’s somebody for everybody? I don’t know sometimes crazy characters work for me (such as A Death So Sweet) and sometimes they don’t 🤷🏻‍♀️ May or may not give the second book a try, given that I love a lot of the authors other books, but I haven’t decided yet.

Imagine that Tijan is the classic in this type of romantic dark writing and this book is taking some notes from Tijan and then it adds some of its Harley Quinn type of batshit crazy.The first time I tried to read this book I disliked it because of its too nonchalance tone. It was too happy-puffy. The second time I had a 6-hour train ride and some noisy people getting on my nerve in the vicinity. What I want to get at is that this book is good for certain moments in life, and those have to be really specific. I don`t think if everything is super great with your day you will want to pour your sorrows into this read.It gets better if you are able to stick through the initial chapters. The chapters until Neil and Brooklyn meet are too hefty. Skip them if you have to (it won`t hurt the general plot line). Instagram\\my Blog\\

    I did not know I needed all these psychos in my life. I have loved Niall from the moment he dropped a bunch of heads on the table at a family dinner. So when the sisters announced his own series, I was sold. This book is so different than anything I have read by them. The characters are literally insane and I never know what is going to come out of their mouths. The humor that's in this book had me laughing through the whole thing. Niall is just as crazy as we have seen before. Naming his weapons I did not know I needed all these psychos in my life.

We also see how miserable he actually is over his wife's brutal death in this book. Brooklyn is certifiably insane, not that she would want me to call her that. She is hilarious and is constantly running her mouth. The fact that she welcomes death, makes her impulsive. Matteo's soul has been tortured since he was a younger. He is dark and broody, but has that soft spot for Brooklyn. Getting towards the end of the book, I knew a cliffhanger was coming. I'm also pretty sure that the sisters only know how to end books on a cliffhanger. I can't wait for book two, Society of Psychos to come out. I need to know what happens next!

The Death Club can take a minute to get into, its not like there normal writing and that brand of crazy can take a few pages to settle but when it did I found myself whizzing through this book full of anxiety at wanting to see how this played out! The Death Club is a smart, witty, crackling book filled with psychological suspense where 3 souls sing to each other in ways that only Caroline and Susanne could perfect

    Another must read by these brilliant sister authors. Once again, Caroline and Susanne have amazed me with this new book. I absolutely loved it! I cannot wait to get my hands on book two. As is expected, there will be a cliffhanger ending, of course. The fact that Niall gets his own story was an absolute winner for me. Niall was amazing in the Brutal Boys series and I love that we get more of his storyline and background in The Death Club. I honestly can’t wait to see what book 2 will bring us!!

They are as different from eachother as they can be but one thing pulls them together...fate or lets say the BIG RED..😜😂😈. Brooklyn was sold multiple time before she entered hell on earth...Royaume D’élite, a place where darkness resides and innocent are sold for pleasure of depraves. Niall instantly felt a connection to her and he bought her...not to save her but to harness her skill to kill and make a partner out of her...but its so easy said then done....

Isn't it the proof of author's talent when she makes you laugh at your FMC killing people and dancing on their corpse...Hell yeah! I know Niall was the one who make them come together but it was Brooklyn who bonded them. I got Serious Joker and Harlequin vibes from this book...I believe they even broke the crazy perimeter... I have never laughed at, loved, and obsessed over a character more than Brooklyn...there were innocence and vulnerability to her( as much innocence a killer can have). Niall...oh God!! This guy...I met him in the previous books but it was amazing to see him in action...every expectation of mine was met to the T... Mateo was the unfamiliar one but he too made me fall for his broody exterior...

Hell yeah!!! This kind of read is a must for every Romance genre lover. I don't believe anyone can make you fall in love with these physcos better than this co-authors..

    OMFG!!! This book is absolutely CRAZY!! For those of you that know me, I love a psycho!! So this book? Was heaven for me 😂 or I’m pretty sure I’m going to hell for loving these characters so much!! Their kinda crazy is kinda beautiful. In a fucked up sort of way. obviously. Nial is the kinda crazy that pretends his apple is a grenade in the middle of a gun fight 😂😂 then munches on it with blood splattered up it after! Normal right? Brooklyn is unlike any character I have read about before. She i OMFG!!! This book is absolutely CRAZY!! For those of you that know me, I love a psycho!! So this book?

Brooklyn is unlike any character I have read about before. She is just amazingly unique in a psycho way. One of a kind 😂 I laughed SO HARD throughout. Literally snorting with laughter. I don’t want to spoil it as it’s best if you go in not knowing then you can fall in love with her like I have. The things she comes out with is just hysterical. The Lionel reference!! Pahaha absolutely loved that 👌🏽 at least we got some kind of torture and closure even if it isn’t the right Lionel 😂 and don’t get me started on the weapons!! RIP Mary 😂😂😂 the fact they name their weapons was hilarious!!! And the way they speak about them is as if they really actually cared about them. MY KINDA CRAZY!!! Mateo is an absolute beast of a man and spends most of this book locked in a cage being terrorised by our Nial. The fucked up bond they have with Brooklyn is the best. Nial is my absolute favourite because there isn’t anyone like him!! The way he laughs in all the chaos is just beautifully fucked up it made me smile throughout 😂 am I twisted? Hell yeah. Aren’t we all after reading these ladies books?! 🤣 we will never be the same again hahaha “It was so dark in this house before you came here.” - Nial “ Did you get new lightbulbs when I arrived?” - Brooklyn 🤣🤣 Honestly hysterical. I am so happy I have the arc book for the next book sat ready and waiting 😜🙌🏼

    I was expecting this so much each time I got to see Niall in The brutal boys of Everlake prep series. Niall is an incredible character and he found his match in crazy in Brooklyn or as he call her Spider. When his spin-off was first announced I didn't tought it would be a ménage but oh holy molly cannolly it's perfect....

Overall a wonderful first book from character types that I've only ever observed from afar in books. I've never seen a story told in first person by these types of slightly unhinged characters (love that they all own it too) and I am looking forward to all of the releases planned for this society of psychos! 😉

    I was so looking forward to this book! As a fan of the Brutal Boys of Everlake Prep, Uncle Niall completely charmed me with his psychopathic ways. So hearing that he was getting his story told was so exciting. And Caroline & Susanne did not disappoint! In this book, we get to learn more about Niall. We got a glimpse of his backstory but now we truly start to learn a little more about the man. He’s got a bit a twisted sense of humor but that’s okay. Beneath all that crazy is a man broken by grief. I was so looking forward to this book! As a fan of the Brutal Boys of Everlake Prep, Uncle Niall completely charmed me with his psychopathic ways.

Beneath all that crazy is a man broken by grief. Enter Brooklyn. She’s a tough cookie. Well, one of those with the crispy outside and the chewy center. She’s had to fight her own demons, real and figurative, but that’s made her a strong, fierce, unintentionally funny, and somewhat crazy girl. She’s slightly fractured, treading that fine line between naïveté and insanity She’s caught Niall’s eye and his heart. And then there’s Mateo. Being held hostage by Niall for months has done nothing positive for the relationship between the two except cement their mutual hatred. Mateo is stubborn about most things and possessive about Brooklyn. I can just feel this getting good as the series progresses. This story is full of twists, turns, torture, betrayal, heartbreak, and darkness. It’s also got friendship, laugh-out-loud moments, and the strange kind of camaraderie that only pain and loneliness as darkness can create. As with all Caroline and Susanne books, this story was well written, had a great pace, had well-developed characters, and an appropriate level of steam given that all the characters are broken in some way. Of course there’s a cliffhanger, but it’s not too bad. And I for one can’t wait for the next installment!!!
