    The short story in this anthology by Yolanda Olson, What Lies Beneath, is yet another story she can add her to "wtf" shelf. This one pulls you in, drags you along, then drops you over the edge with a twist you won't see coming. I seriously cannot wait for the rest of this anthology. If...

    Look, y?all know I love dark and disturbing stories as much as the next person, but these are just overwrought snapshots of torture porn. That?s just not my idea of a good time. ...

    The only book that I reviewed in this anthology was for Cari Silverwood. I do plan on reading more of these stories and when I finish I will edit this review at that time. Used is a spin-off story from The Dark Hearts Trilogy and Wolfe. This novella is part of an anthology When the ...

    Cari Silverwood's - Used If you've read anything of Cari's before then you won't be surprised she hits the mark dead on with "Used" she's created a world excitingly dark. One must wonder about the power of control are we really doing what we want? or is there some dark figure pullin...

    So far I have read 2 stories from the collection. And do heed the warnings of darkness! May not be suitable for some adults. But I, myself, loved it. Breaking Beth by Jennifer Bene: This story put me through so many emotions. You really get to know the characters, very descriptive. Be...

    Ok this was 3.5 stars but I rounded up for the couple of stories I liked. To start with this anthology is beyond Dark. Like seriously if you have a problem with rape, torture, and just brutality in general skip this one. My problem with the stories was I didn?t understand some. How...

    As of this moment I have read two of these deliciously dark reads and I must say these are REALLY dark reads so be prepared. Used by Cari Silverwood ? Red wants to kill him but once he has her, she can?t help what she is doing she must comply. Once the monster is free there will be...

    One of the reasons I was interested in this anthology is because Yolanda Olson was involved, and so I knew the stories would be dark and twisty. Yolanda's What Lies Beneath is the sheer definition of dark, twisty, and oh so messed up. You never know where her writing will take you but...

    The idea for this book just pulled me in, and I had to devour Yolanda Olson's book right away. When I tell you that this story is twisted, you'll have to believe me. This is starting one way, you know what's going on, suddenly all hell breaks loose and you're questioning everything y...

    Thank you,Cari! For giving my teddy bear nightmares. For making me sleep with the light on and checking behind every door.....For giving me this dark boxset! This is a collection of really,really dark stories! Stories with absolutely no chance of a HEA. They each have their own ver...

    This is a collection of disturbingly dark stories. Do not read them when you're alone in the house at night!! You need a sunlit reading place, with butterflies and fluffy bunnies, and a stiff drink. You'll need all of it, believe me !!! Breaking Beth by Jennifer Bene Again Ms ...

    The short story in this anthology by Yolanda Olson, What Lies Beneath, is yet another story she can add her to "wtf" shelf. This one pulls you in, drags you along, then drops you over the edge with a twist you won't see coming. I seriously cannot wait for the rest of this anthology. If...

    Cari Silverwood's - Used If you've read anything of Cari's before then you won't be surprised she hits the mark dead on with "Used" she's created a world excitingly dark. One must wonder about the power of control are we really doing what we want? or is there some dark figure pullin...

    So far I have read 2 stories from the collection. And do heed the warnings of darkness! May not be suitable for some adults. But I, myself, loved it. Breaking Beth by Jennifer Bene: This story put me through so many emotions. You really get to know the characters, very descriptive. Be...

    Ok this was 3.5 stars but I rounded up for the couple of stories I liked. To start with this anthology is beyond Dark. Like seriously if you have a problem with rape, torture, and just brutality in general skip this one. My problem with the stories was I didn?t understand some. How...

    As of this moment I have read two of these deliciously dark reads and I must say these are REALLY dark reads so be prepared. Used by Cari Silverwood ? Red wants to kill him but once he has her, she can?t help what she is doing she must comply. Once the monster is free there will be...

    This collection of stories is a definite must-read for everyone who loves a good dark read. And of course, as soon as I saw that one of my favorite authors Yolanda Olson wrote her story for the anthology, I just had to grab it. What is so cool about ?What Lies Beneath? is that ever...

    One of the reasons I was interested in this anthology is because Yolanda Olson was involved, and so I knew the stories would be dark and twisty. Yolanda's What Lies Beneath is the sheer definition of dark, twisty, and oh so messed up. You never know where her writing will take you but...

    The idea for this book just pulled me in, and I had to devour Yolanda Olson's book right away. When I tell you that this story is twisted, you'll have to believe me. This is starting one way, you know what's going on, suddenly all hell breaks loose and you're questioning everything y...

    I read My Name is Jane by Zoe Blake. A brilliant story that?s dark, romantic (depends who you ask), and a slice of horror thrown in there. It?s DARK and there you?ve been warned. Zoe hit it out of the park. I love the darkness. ...

    The short story in this anthology by Yolanda Olson, What Lies Beneath, is yet another story she can add her to "wtf" shelf. This one pulls you in, drags you along, then drops you over the edge with a twist you won't see coming. I seriously cannot wait for the rest of this anthology. If...

    Look, y?all know I love dark and disturbing stories as much as the next person, but these are just overwrought snapshots of torture porn. That?s just not my idea of a good time. ...

    The only book that I reviewed in this anthology was for Cari Silverwood. I do plan on reading more of these stories and when I finish I will edit this review at that time. Used is a spin-off story from The Dark Hearts Trilogy and Wolfe. This novella is part of an anthology When the ...

    Cari Silverwood's - Used If you've read anything of Cari's before then you won't be surprised she hits the mark dead on with "Used" she's created a world excitingly dark. One must wonder about the power of control are we really doing what we want? or is there some dark figure pullin...

    So far I have read 2 stories from the collection. And do heed the warnings of darkness! May not be suitable for some adults. But I, myself, loved it. Breaking Beth by Jennifer Bene: This story put me through so many emotions. You really get to know the characters, very descriptive. Be...

    Ok this was 3.5 stars but I rounded up for the couple of stories I liked. To start with this anthology is beyond Dark. Like seriously if you have a problem with rape, torture, and just brutality in general skip this one. My problem with the stories was I didn?t understand some. How...

    As of this moment I have read two of these deliciously dark reads and I must say these are REALLY dark reads so be prepared. Used by Cari Silverwood ? Red wants to kill him but once he has her, she can?t help what she is doing she must comply. Once the monster is free there will be...

    This collection of stories is a definite must-read for everyone who loves a good dark read. And of course, as soon as I saw that one of my favorite authors Yolanda Olson wrote her story for the anthology, I just had to grab it. What is so cool about ?What Lies Beneath? is that ever...

    One of the reasons I was interested in this anthology is because Yolanda Olson was involved, and so I knew the stories would be dark and twisty. Yolanda's What Lies Beneath is the sheer definition of dark, twisty, and oh so messed up. You never know where her writing will take you but...

    The idea for this book just pulled me in, and I had to devour Yolanda Olson's book right away. When I tell you that this story is twisted, you'll have to believe me. This is starting one way, you know what's going on, suddenly all hell breaks loose and you're questioning everything y...

    My name is Jane by talented Zoe Blake with make you looking in your closets. This books pulls you in from the start by saying WTF. You will go on an emotional rollercoaster with Jane as she tells you her story. It is beyond dark and twisted and then you are thrown for a loop. If ...

    I read My Name is Jane by Zoe Blake. A brilliant story that?s dark, romantic (depends who you ask), and a slice of horror thrown in there. It?s DARK and there you?ve been warned. Zoe hit it out of the park. I love the darkness. ...

    Dark and twisted is my thing so to find all these stories by best selling authors in one book is amazing. When they say dark they mean dark, There are no happy ever afters in these stories, if you have any hard limits then I suggest you try a different book. I won't comment about all o...

    What happens When the Dark Wins? You get an amazingly twisted and haunting book full of stories that will make you want to embrace the darkness or hide under the covers. Happy endings are not guaranteed and your limits will definitely be tested. From the first story I was riveted and f...

    Dark Stories do Exists!! Breaking Beth- Jennifer takes it to a new level. I have to say this is by far a very dark book. The final scene where Beth is finally broken is one that will be etched in my memory for a while. Jennifer wrote this story so well that I was sweating by the end...

    Catacombs - Addison Cain This is not a story of your handsome studley vampire with a little angst and fangs. This is the monster you fear in the dark, the shadow that moves out of the corner of your eye, the noise that raises the hair on your body. YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE! Pearl is un...

    Thank you,Cari! For giving my teddy bear nightmares. For making me sleep with the light on and checking behind every door.....For giving me this dark boxset! This is a collection of really,really dark stories! Stories with absolutely no chance of a HEA. They each have their own ver...

    Send wine and fluffy kitties, stat! Those are pretty much the only things that got me through this one. I love the dark. I play in the dark a lot. I will read every dark thing I get and revel in it, and really, I think the darker the better. I'm perfectly happy to not have a happil...

    Fuck.... The title of this bundle says it all...really...utterly...completely It's dark It's deprived It's twisted And there's NO hea? Enter at your own risk... I was enthralled by all the stories but I got especially invested and intrigued by the stories of Zoe Blake...

    Warning! If you can't handle the darkness, and stories that feel like they are ripping you out from the inside then steer clear. There is no fluff When The Dark Wins. In no particular order here are my reviews for each instalment in this anthology. I will be adding the rest as I rea...

    This is a collection of disturbingly dark stories. Do not read them when you're alone in the house at night!! You need a sunlit reading place, with butterflies and fluffy bunnies, and a stiff drink. You'll need all of it, believe me !!! Breaking Beth by Jennifer Bene Again Ms ...

    There are no happy endings here, there are no 'happy for nows'--there is no happy. When the Dark Wins is a dark and depraved collection of stories that are meant to haunt your dreams. Each story is demented in its own way and I enjoyed all immensely. Say what you want, but I would...

    I have only had the opportunity to read 2 of the stories in this anthology so far, so I will be adding to my review, but I need to try to put into words what you are getting when you dive into this. This review is for Breaking Beth, by Jennifer Bene, and the only word I can use is W...

    This is my review of three authors that are definitely becoming one of my favorites Used by Cari Silverwood Ok I don't know where to start with this review. But Mrs Silverwood took me for a ride with this one that I don't know what to think. It sure was something I don't know if I ...

    The first story that I read of this book is Catacombs of Addison Cain. This short story is tragic since the beginning. The life of Pearl is not easy, she has suffer mental and physical abuse her entire live. She doesn?t know what is wrong with her. But she is fighting to survive an...

    When the Dark Wins Anthology by Jennifer Bene, Addison Cain, Cari Silverwood, Zoe Blake, Yolanda Olson,Dani René, Eris Adderly and Michelle Brown. When the Dark Wins isn?t for the faint of heart. Right when this anthology hit my kindle, I jumped right into it without any concern...

    Be still my little black heart! This anthology is a wonderfully delicious collection of very dark novellas that kept me hanging on every word. Before reading this, I was already fans of Cari Silverwood and Jennifer Bene, but I have found several new authors I need to check out. I'm...

    The short story in this anthology by Yolanda Olson, What Lies Beneath, is yet another story she can add her to "wtf" shelf. This one pulls you in, drags you along, then drops you over the edge with a twist you won't see coming. I seriously cannot wait for the rest of this anthology. If...

    Look, y?all know I love dark and disturbing stories as much as the next person, but these are just overwrought snapshots of torture porn. That?s just not my idea of a good time. ...

    The only book that I reviewed in this anthology was for Cari Silverwood. I do plan on reading more of these stories and when I finish I will edit this review at that time. Used is a spin-off story from The Dark Hearts Trilogy and Wolfe. This novella is part of an anthology When the ...

    Cari Silverwood's - Used If you've read anything of Cari's before then you won't be surprised she hits the mark dead on with "Used" she's created a world excitingly dark. One must wonder about the power of control are we really doing what we want? or is there some dark figure pullin...

    So far I have read 2 stories from the collection. And do heed the warnings of darkness! May not be suitable for some adults. But I, myself, loved it. Breaking Beth by Jennifer Bene: This story put me through so many emotions. You really get to know the characters, very descriptive. Be...

    Ok this was 3.5 stars but I rounded up for the couple of stories I liked. To start with this anthology is beyond Dark. Like seriously if you have a problem with rape, torture, and just brutality in general skip this one. My problem with the stories was I didn?t understand some. How...

    As of this moment I have read two of these deliciously dark reads and I must say these are REALLY dark reads so be prepared. Used by Cari Silverwood ? Red wants to kill him but once he has her, she can?t help what she is doing she must comply. Once the monster is free there will be...

    This collection of stories is a definite must-read for everyone who loves a good dark read. And of course, as soon as I saw that one of my favorite authors Yolanda Olson wrote her story for the anthology, I just had to grab it. What is so cool about ?What Lies Beneath? is that ever...

    One of the reasons I was interested in this anthology is because Yolanda Olson was involved, and so I knew the stories would be dark and twisty. Yolanda's What Lies Beneath is the sheer definition of dark, twisty, and oh so messed up. You never know where her writing will take you but...

    I read My Name is Jane by Zoe Blake. A brilliant story that?s dark, romantic (depends who you ask), and a slice of horror thrown in there. It?s DARK and there you?ve been warned. Zoe hit it out of the park. I love the darkness. ...

    Dark and twisted is my thing so to find all these stories by best selling authors in one book is amazing. When they say dark they mean dark, There are no happy ever afters in these stories, if you have any hard limits then I suggest you try a different book. I won't comment about all o...

    What happens When the Dark Wins? You get an amazingly twisted and haunting book full of stories that will make you want to embrace the darkness or hide under the covers. Happy endings are not guaranteed and your limits will definitely be tested. From the first story I was riveted and f...
