While I like a quick read, I felt that Natalie Bennett could have given us a few more pages in Blue Velvet to slow the story down. Even now as I think about this review, I'm not real sure what in the heck was going on when it was all said and done. This review may spoil book one, UltraViolence.

"This entire situation was a result of letting my heart lead instead of my head."

We start right where UltraViolence left off, McKenna and Millie on the run. There is somebody after Kenna and she's got a pretty good idea of who it is. Although, with the Institution and it's reach, she really doesn't know who is trying to erase her.

"Nothing would ever stop me from loving him. Distance, death, deceit, or judgement."

It's a darn good thing Kenna thinks that, because with Levi, that's exactly what she's getting. A big steaming pile of lying crap. I will admit, I did like Levi's alpha ways and how he wanted her as his, however, after learning the reason why, it was super creepy.

So we travel along with Kenna, Millie, Levi and the rest of the gang as the story unfolds and gets more confusing than ever. Even though she needs to hate him, Kenna can't help but drop her pants at the mere sight of Levi. Ugh. These two needed to do more talking than effing with what was going on all around them.

The book was good, a nice unorthodox ending, but felt extremely rushed. Especially at around the 80% mark. We were given facts and stories fast and furious without time or details to truly process and appreciate what these characters are going or have gone through. 

Natalie Bennett has always been an avid fan of all things dark and twisted, so it only made sense for her to write what she loves. She brings to life unapologetic antiheroes you love to hate and strong heroines who refuse to be broken. Natalie writes Dark and Twisty Erotica with romantic elements. She doesn't censor her writing and let's her stories tell themselves. If you pick up one of her books expecting a typical HEA, you won't find one.
