I love this book. I read this in a day. All 600 pages. I’m a slow reader so reading something this fast really says something. It drew me in like an addict craving for their favorite drug.

The Ritual was everything I could ever want in a book. It had fantastic writing, amazing characters, intriguing plot, suspenseful and saucy secret society drama, and the romance, oh the romance was great! Toxic yes with a lot of triggers, but both characters, Ryat and Blake, knew what they want and did not hesitate to drench themselves into their desires.


I loved The Ritual. It was twisted and deranged, and I loved every minute of it. I’m definitely reading Shantel Tessier’s other books because, honey, her stories are exactly my cup of tea.
