Josi

I was so lost when he found me.

A young man of no experience, not knowing what love was, but he showed me. He made me feel what it’s like to be alive and opened my eyes to what the world truly is. I’m nothing without him and he knows it because he’s nothing without me.

His words are often full of praise, of need, yet I know he deserves better. I need him. I can’t live without him.
I’ll adjust to what he wants.

And maybe, when he’s ready, he’ll show me just how much he needs me too.

Bishop

Before him, I lived my life with such rigidity that my shoulders were perpetually riddled with knots. I followed a strict code.

He’s sweet and young and sees the world through a different lens which helps me relax. The rules I abide by are important for many reasons, but he makes me do things I normally wouldn’t. Things I shouldn’t, but saying no to him is not something I seem to be capable of.

To help him learn, I teach him the rules and punish him as needed.

They say love knows no bounds. That it doesn’t judge and it isn’t biased, but can it survive his recklessness and my proclivities?

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Josiah’s love for Bishop had no boundaries. When he started to feel the connection slipping away, he decided to prove his love the only way he knew Bishop would understand.

This was my first read by both authors and well, what a way to pop my cherry. I wanted dark and fucked up, I certainly got it.

And when he comes back to me—if he comes back to me—I’ll prove that I’m every bit the monster he is. It’s the only way to keep him from ever leaving me again.

Jos and Bishop were two fascinating characters. I loved being in their mind and studying their psyche. The supporting characters were equally compelling. The authors injected humanity into the characters, making me as a reader felt connected and invested in their lives no matter if they’re good/bad (in the eyes of normal society) or predator/prey. My favorite character was “the beast” which had minimal scenes but quite impactful.

Bishop’s desires are carnal and all consuming, whereas I’m more of a dreamer needing to feel loved.

Abattoir delves into the darkest depth of depravity. It would appeal to readers who could enjoy a story without being restrained by hard limits.
