Title: Villains & Vodka
Series: Top Shelf #2
Author: Alta Hensley
Genre: Dark Romance Standalone
Release Date: December 5, 2017


My life is one long
fevered dream, balancing between being killed or killing.
The name Harley Crow is one to be feared.
I am an assassin.
A killer.
The villain.

I own it. I choose this life. Hell, I crave it. I hunger for it. The smell of
fear makes me hard and is the very reason the blood runs through my veins.
Until I meet her…

Marlowe Masters.
Her darkness matches my own.
In my twisted world of dancing along the jagged edge of the blade…
She changes everything.
No weapon can protect me from the kind of death she will ultimately deliver.

*Villains & Vodka is a dark billionaire romance. If you don’t like a splash
of shock, a dash of taboo, and a heavy dose of sex, then don’t take a sip of
this TOP SHELF cocktail.

Ashlee’s Review


“I choose you over the blade”

If you have triggers like self harm, rape issues or dark triggers of any kind this book may not be the book for you, if your a sick puppy like me proceed.

This story begins with Marlowe who is a bartender at Spiked Roses,who ran from a past that is anything but nice she’s feisty and has a fetish for the bad boys which is why Marlowe is obsessed with Harley.
Harley is part owner of Spiked Roses and is also a hit man with a bad past and a surprisingly a gentleman as well as alpha in the bedroom.
Marlowe has been eyeing the gorgeous brooding Harley for a very long time and when the club hosted a fetish themed event they call the tasting Harley finally sees Marlowe and “buys” her for the weekend.
There weekend is themed “are you afraid of the dark” so as you can guess the theme is not fluffy and puppy dogs. The sex scenes are inventive and hawt! The chemistry between Marlowe and Harley seems pretty instalove and a bit forced in my opinion.
I give this 3 stars for that ending I’m pretty irritated actually about that, one word redemption… And lastly I was disappointed that I didn’t actually get Harley’s actual name or back story I feel it would have added connection to Marlowe and I wanted to know more tattoos or honestly just more from Harley. I couldn’t connect with him well even with his POV..
