‘CONSUMED! ADDICTED! OBSESSED with the Inferno Boys!!!’ ~ Keri Loves Books
‘HOLY ish!!! I thought I was in love with Tanner and Gabe...but Ezra...I love him and all his broken parts.’ ~ Boys in Books are Better
Seventh Circle
Violence Also Known As Ezra Cross 
He’s one of a pair. Identical twin to Damon. And an enforcer for the Inferno if one is ever needed. 
I knew better than to get involved with him. With his aggression. With the constant fights. With the games the twins were known to play with every woman stupid enough to fall for them. 
We made a mistake when we met again as adults. I fell in love. He fell in love. His brother fell in love, too. 
What used to be a good time is now a tragedy. 
Our story is messy. It’s cruel. It’s forbidden. 
Despite all that, Ezra refuses to let go. 
*** Each novel in the series depicts a unique romance, but the plots through each book connect in one world. For the best experience, read the series in order. Nine Dangerous Men. Nine Unrepentant Sinners. Nine Irresistible Manipulators. 

"How do you friend zone one brother while doing your best not to cling to the other?”

This is gonna be messy, heartbreaking and hot... Lines that kept repeating in my head the moment I  finished Fraud and was introduced to Ezra, Damon and Emily. So when Violence' ARC landed my kindle, I had my big girl panties on, emotions checked in place and readied myself for whatever Lily White is in store for us this time.
Here goes my quick review without giving away any spoilers...

Violence followed the story of Ezra Cross, Temperamental. Fierce. Predatory. Feral. He is Violence, in life, in bed. And once this man loses control, he’s a wildfire that consumes without concern for what damage is caused and, Emily Donahue - a girl with crimson hair had the personality to match, her fire burning so damn hot that you can’t help but be burned alive to see it.Where Ezra is the BEAST, she is the QUEEN. Together, they're a force to be reckoned with. Spoken in dual perspective, what they gave me was more than just FEELS.While I had the whole time laughing my ass off and fanning myself over the hotness reading the previous book in the series, I was in a different state with Violence. Oooh, hotness overload was still present but what had me glued to the book in its entirety was the emotional depth that took me by surprise and had my heart bruised and beaten. What started off as fling and fun spiraled to a love that cuts deep. A love that inflicted pain yet healed it. Two men and one woman. Both men love her fiercely, both needed her immensely. So now how's it going to be? Love triangle? Menage a trois? Reverse Harem? Damn! The list goes on but you need to read this book yourself. For a much better appreciation and better experience, read the first two books before jumping to Violence.

So how was my experience you asked?

I was ADDICTED to it. I devoured this long AF book because let's face it, besides the interesting premise and a promising storyline, you can never go wrong with a Lily White book. Start to finish had me checking my emotions because the angst was high. The romance and the banter was so good. Add up a sexual tension that was just off the charts hot, teasing you with every chance, ah no words! And as I said, it has all the FEELS. I swooned big time but they crushed my heart too. But I adored them , I fell in love with them and I needed MORE of them BIG TIME. Lily White penned them in a way that made it even harder for me to stop reading. She's brilliant because even if I had my questions in the previous book answered, I am now in a limbo because I was bombarded with a whole lot more in Violence. And it wasn't a wrong thing though. In fact, it made me even want to read the next book ASAP. 

Overall, I love Violence by Lily White. She gave me an incredible ride of angst fest, pain, heartbreak, love... and SECRETS. Secrets that made me want to crawl the author's mind with her brilliancy. Some may have been revealed but this book made me want to dig deeper not just on Emily and the twins but to the whole Inferno boys as a whole. 

Way to go with this series! Cheers to you Lily White!
