    One thought on “Bastards”

    1. 3.5So this happened.Heed the blurb. These are not love stories and the erotic part is stretching the boundaries of that word too. There is sex. Lots of it. None of it save a random kiss here or there having to do with love or tenderness. Not a criticism just a fact.The stories themselves Cheating Bastard and Lying Bastard are peopled by one evil guy and his satellites who are kind of dumb or naive i.e. "Cheating Bastard" or obsessed and blind to everything around them i.e. "Lying Bastard".Over a [...]

    2. Ooo Baby. This one is lusciously dark. The stories were great - and shocking. Don't read this thinking these are romances of any sort - by dark I mean the darkest of dark. If you cannot live there don't click the button!

    3. A trip into the flip sideI can't say I enjoyed either of these novellas much, they're incredibly dark and twisted.But, they are superbly well crafted (with a few grammatical errors to be ignored however) and full of torturous passions and they walk the edge of what's considered acceptable between consenting partners and teeter on the brink of abusive and damaging behaviour.It's impossible to review full without revealing the big moments at the heart of each story but read the warning and take no [...]

    4. Ugh. So not the book for me. I wish i could un- read it. It's well written but it's justick.e main character of the first book is so evil "cheating bastard" is too nice of a description for him.I'm not going to rate it because I'm not the right audience for this book. Take the warnings seriously. I wish i had. :-(

    5. Messed upThe warnings didn't lie, these stories are f*ed up and there aren't any happy endings. The writing was good, the characters were interesting, they were both pretty fast reads, the bad guys do get what they deserve but the 'good guys' still don't get happy endings.If you're reading these for the kink and thinking to yourself 'there's gotta be at least a kinda happy ending', look elsewhere! The second story doesn't exactly have an unhappy ending but it eludes to what is happening and allo [...]

    6. These are incredibly dark stories. Incredibly dark. They are not for the faint of heart.Normally, I am a HEA lover, although HFN usually satisfies me. I read these on a whim because I enjoyed the author's other works. I was not expecting to really enjoy these. I did. I loved the darkness of his characters. There are some evil MFers in these stories. I enjoyed Cheating Bastard more than Lying Bastard, but they both hit some sick and twisted center in me.Devon, please write more of these!!!!

    7. The warning sums it up - great dark and twisted read."Warning: Contains violent, brutal, and sadistic male on male action that some readers might be uncomfortable with. This is a dark, disturbing collection that pulls no punches. Although Devon McCormack writes romance, these are not romances and do not contain HEAs. Look elsewhere for love because here there is only pain, darkness, and sadism."

    8. Dark indeedNot my normal reading material. I discovered Devon through a collab with Riley Hart. I saved this series for last on my Devon read list. These are twisted. Something from ID channel. Very well written. Devon is a talented writer. Pulls you into these twisted minds, you have to know what's next.

    9. Twisted.Well, that was a change from the sweet and living Christmas stories I've been reading this week. Not for the faint hearted.

    10. Wow!!I was forewarned before reading as I will also do for anyone interested, this is not for the faint of heart or sensibilities .With that said Bastards (containing two short stories ) is a disturbing ,erotic , and psychologically delving spiral of sadistic and twisted pleasure. Firstly Bastard is brutal and tragic but oh so devilishly fun. A twisted tale of possession ,love and revenge with a good dose of paranoia that ends in a most decishly fiendish way. Lying Bastard is a fantastic tale of [...]

    11. M/M. Fairly brutal and certainly no HEA's in either of these two short stories. I think I've figured out I can handle dark, but I need an HEA.

    12. Well damnThis is my first read from author Devon McCormackd it's a great book (or two books) to start withIn Cheating B*****d we have Blake Todd and Kyled omg I hated Blake from the start.This is not an easy read because Blake treats Todd so bad and Kyle tooere is cheating obviously in this book but that ending totally surprised me.A great read.NowLying B*****d is triple the darkness of book oneAaron, Ian, Brad and Jesse are the main MC's in the book and Ian needs Brad in a rough and i mean real [...]

    13. WHEW!!If you want dark and dangerous these are definitely the erotic thrillers you want to read. Artistically designed and you can't stop yourself from finishing, at least I couldn't. This is one wild ride in two very different stories.

    14. This is the most disturbing dark absolutely insane book I've ever read. It's two different short stories. I gave it four stars because it was well written and it had me shocked through most of it. This had me thinking WTF through the whole book.

    15. So dark you can't shake itThis isn't a pretty story of happily ever after and I loved it. It shocks you and sends your mind reeling into: did that really happen? It didn't. It did. Wow.

    16. Pure fantasyDevon has written a book definitely on the dark side. Murder,intrigue,frathouse hazing and threesomes what more could you ask for?

    17. Twisted, evil, dark, and oh so sexy. Made me want to scream "What The F@$#" and punch something. I usually don't like 'em this dark but totally loved this book.
