Real Ugly

~ Blurb ~

Turner Campbell is an asshole.
I f*cking hate him.
But I can't get enough either.
He sings like an angel and f*cks lik
e a devil.
If I could, I'd run away and never look back because to tell you the truth, I think this man might be the death of me.


Naomi Knox is a bitch.
I can't f*cking stand her.
But I can't stop thinking about her either.
She looks like an angel and plays like a devil.
If I could, I'd f*ck her good and forget all about her, but to tell you the truth, I think this woman might be my last saving grace.

~ Review ~ 

Your either going to love or hate this book! Admittedly, it took me a little while to get into the writing style and language used (I tend to read YA / paranormal), but if swearing, drugs, sex and real life doesn’t bother you then I would definitely give this series a try. Naomi and Turner are both completely messed up, and a therapist would be set for life having these two as their clients, but they still draw you in and I couldn’t help but start to love them, want a slightly less messed up life for them both. You’re likely to want to shout and scream at some of the characters, throw the book / kindle across the room and stamp your feet in places, but all this did was prove how engrossed I got into the book. A warning though, it does end in one hell of a cliff hanger.

First thing I did after finishing this book? Buy book 2, Get Bent, devoured it and I now feel much better about the cliff hanger at the end of Real Ugly. Thankfully Get Bent ends in a much better place for the reader. 


Get Bent

Naomi Knox is missing.
I don't even f*cking know whether she's dead or alive.
What I do know is that she's the air I need to breathe.
She's my redemption, an all consuming fire that burns in my blood.
And I'll do anything to find her. Anything. Even if it means the end for me.

& & &

Turner Campbell is searching.
But he has no f*cking clue what it is he's searching for.
There's darkness all around and enough secrets to choke.
There are angels, and there are devils. It's impossible to tell them apart.
Light needs to be shone on the truth, but there's no one left to hold the torch. The line between life and death is blurred, and the players are all thoroughly entrenched in the game. The question is: am I still one of them?

~ Review ~

Compared to Real Ugly this book seemed a little tamer, but that could just be because I had completely got used to the writers style by the time I started reading it.  This book was a complete surprise, and I had no idea where the story was leading, but was happy to go along for the ride and just went with it as Turner searched for Naomi.  As with Real Ugly, I was completely engrossed from start to finish, and although this book ended in a much better place, I’m still looking forward to the next instalment and hopefully getting some answers about who is behind it all.

Character Bio's

Naomi Knox is hardcore.  She has to be.  Growing up without parents will do that to a person, especially when you're subjected to the horrors only a special type of foster family can provide …  But she can play a mean guitar and she'll write music that'll make Beethoven weep in his grave.  Just don't ask about her dirty, little secrets.  Well, I suppose little isn't exactly the right word.  Huge.  Monstrous.  Looming.  Maybe those are better choices?

Turner is a special kind of guy.  He grew up without respect, so he demands it, even if it makes him come across as a bit of an asshole.  He's got piercings and tats for days, and a mouth with no filter.  If you're expecting wise words woven into his insults, you're looking in the wrong place.  Turner Campbell's searching; he just doesn't know what it is that he's searching for.  But he does have tattoos on his … well, you know.  Yep.  All over down there.  Bats and spider webs.  Kinda cool, right?

About the Author 

C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA. A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin's (yes, that's her name!) desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal bellydance.

Always a fan of the indie scene and 'sticking it to the man,' Ms. Stunich decided to take the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of writers before taking up a friend's offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was born, and Ms. Stunich's books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers.

C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world.
