Book Thoughts: Carnage by Shantel Tessier

Some women want roses and diamonds, candlelit dinners and I love yous. Not me. I want to be choked and told I look pretty with your cum covering my face.

I would like to thank the author and Candy Kane PR for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

TRIGGERS & DARK THEMES: sexual assault, physical violence, bdsm, therapy, death, degradation, foursome, kidnapping,

TROPES: touch her and you die, possessive MMC, secret society,


I was born into a secret society. They say we’re the lucky ones. That the world will bow to us and we’ll never go without anything. As long as we pass our initiations, we’ll know riches beyond our wild dreams.


Carnage is one of my most anticipated books. Like ever. I am obsessed with this series so having a book set in Carnage was like a dream come true.

This book has no filters. Just like the other books in this series, the amount of dark content in this book is insane. Even more so in my opinion. It is definitely not for the faint of heart which I love. Anyone who is planning to read this book should definitely read the trigger warnings before purchasing.

Carnage Review Shantel Tessier

The characters, especially Ashtyn, would be a hit or miss for a lot of people. She is definitely different from all the other FMC I have read so far, which could be polarizing for a lot of people. But I actually appreciate it more than being turned off by it. I think women should be allowed to own their sexuality and not be shamed for wanting something even though it's not a commonly accepted practice. Oh and Saint, oh god, I love him. I just love a man who would do absolutely anything for the woman he loves. But… but… i would never want to be shared, nor would I want to share him in any capacity. Period. Together, they're just electric. They are meant to be together.

I think I may have missed to talk about how spicy this book is. Oh it is hot. Would I want it for myself? Probably not, but goddamn, it was hot as expected from Ms. Tessier.

Ohhh btw, I love seeing all the other Lords here. Ryat is my main man. I love that he and the others made cameos in this book.


Enjoyment: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Spice Meter: 🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️

Can we just say I was like in a rollercoaster ride the entire time I was reading this book? Was it in a good way? Hell yeah. Although, I will have to say, there were quite a few things regarding the plot that I think could have been done better. This book wasn’t perfect that’s for sure, but over all, I did enjoy reading this.
