Tyrant Mercer doesn’t grant wishes. He collects debts, and he’s here to claim me.

All I wanted was my baby brother back from the man who stole him away. My family is in Tyrant’s debt, a man they hate, and they disown me when the devil’s eyes stray to me. Now there’s nothing and no one to protect me from the cruel man who runs this city from the shadows.

But Tyrant’s not going to drag me away by my hair just yet. He’s going to torment me first.

Tyrant demands that I play his twisted games. He thinks I’ll crumble for his amusement, but I’m carrying a secret that’s bigger than both of us. A secret that’s now in the hands of the worst man possible.

All he craves is me. All he demands is everything. Tyrant will give me everything I’ve ever wanted—all I have to say is I wish

But a wish is a curse when it’s granted by the devil himself.

“Hearts that don’t beat, can’t break.”

Someone needs to explain to me what happened. I need this to be broken down in it's most simplest form because this author is crazy and quite frankly her characters are unhinged!! I haven't felt this tug of war about a hero in a very long time and as I'm writing this review, I still don't know how I feel. Do I embrace the crazy? Indulge in the madness? Or get my head examined?


Vivienne Stone has always wanted to feel like she's worthy and to have a good relationship with her father and stepmother. Family means everything to her and that includes her baby brother whom she would do anything for. That love is tested when the unthinkable happens and Vivienne decides to make a sacrifice that puts her on the radar of the most feared man in her city.


Tyrant is a ruthless king and he apologizes for nothing and fears no one. Don't pay your debts? I hoped you enjoyed your life up until then because he's going to make your final moments extremely painful. Deciding to switch things up a bit for someone who's indebted to him, he comes face to face with a woman that's going to take his possessiveness to a whole new level.


I have to admit that it took a while for me to get into this story. I was not a fan of the hero in the beginning along with the way he went about certain things. He was a bit too much if i'm being honest and as the chapters flew by, it became worse. I'm not sure if it was because we were able to go back into the past and have more of his pov, but I did warm up to him and I loved that he protected the heroine as if his life depended on it.

If you're looking for a hot dark romance with a possessive hero, then this one's for you.

Are you in the mood for something quick, spicy, and absolutely fucking unhinged? If so, search no further! Fear Me, Love Me by Lilith Vincent is exactly what you're looking for! It was created with inspiration from the author's lifelong love of Jareth the Goblin King from the movie Labyrinth and an Instagram post featuring the cover model, Jord Liddell. The result is a crazy combination of weird and hot which I know a lot of dark romance fans will appreciate.

Tyrant terrifies everyone he comes into contact with, except Vivienne. Instead of the big bad wolf he is to most, he's more like her own personal teddy bear...if said bear gave her his fingers and cock to use as a pacifier. Nobody in Vivienne's life looks out for her or cares for her, so who can blame her for falling in love with the only person who does? Sure, he's a little psychotic, but we all have our faults, right? 

When you first start reading this, you may feel like you've picked up the book in the middle of the story, but don't worry, the author fills you in on the missing details later. That being said, don't expect super in depth backstories, we're given just enough information on the characters to know who and what we're dealing with. Fear Me, Love Me is a fast paced, violent, twisted, depraved romance featuring a broken heroine and a powerful anti-hero that will end the world to protect, keep, and avenge the woman he's obsessed with/loves. 

Dark romance fans, this one is for you!
