Sins That Find Us (Madly Ever After #1) by E.M. Lindsey

"I was not prepared..." Sins That Find Us was an experience for Angel.

From the blurb:

My name might be Alice, and this sure as hell isn’t wonderland, but everyone is definitely a little mad here.

My life is a series of near misses. Or, at least, it was. But the man who saved me at the bar from a guy who definitely didn’t have the best intentions, might have even worse ones.

And so do his friends. Knowing who my father is, I know better than to talk to strangers, and it’s just my luck that my four knights in shining armor have their own vendetta against him.

The next thing I know, I’m a damsel in distress—a pawn in their game against my father because I’m his one weak link. But the longer I stay on this little island of misfit toys, the more things start to become clear, and the people I thought were heroes might very well be the villains in my story.

Then again, I always did think Wendy might love Hook more, and that the Beauty wanted her Beast, that Ariel deserved a bit of revenge. And, last but not least, that Hades—the King—absolutely deserved his queen.

The Sins That Find Us is the first book in a MFMMM, modern fractured fairy tale trilogy that tells the story of how heroes and villains might not always be what they seem. It features MF, MMF, and MM scenes, and ends on a cliffhanger.

Angel's Review:

Wow.. Just wow.

When I signed up to get a copy of this book, I don't think I was fully prepared for what I got. I was warned there would be dark elements but... The elements in this book are pretty dark. I gotta say, as much as I loved the characters' individual personalities, I didn't feel invested into the story until halfway through. And that's just because halfway through is when the book picked up more in my opinion. 

E.M. knows how to not only write exceptional characters with their own personalities, descriptions and quirks, but they also are really good at creating a world you can't help but get pulled into. Once the book pulled me in, I couldn't get out. 

I've never read a book quite like this one before, and that makes me appreciate not only the author so much more, but also the story itself and the writing it took to create such a unique story. 

The background detail is excellent, so great I fact at certain scenes you wish you would not be able to picture what it looked like. I think all of these broken people fit together really well, as they say it's the 'castle' of misfits. 

The relationship and bond the men have with each other is strange and complex, yet also deep and significant. They are bonded by trauma, lust, grief, anger, love, sadness, and most importantly... Revenge. 

I do have to say if you aren't a fan of spicy scenes then this might not be the book for you. I'm saying this because there are several of those scenes throughout the course of this book. There is also mention of blood, torture, fighting, death, murder, starvation, talk of sexually assaulting someone along with other dark topic matter. 

I'm now onto the next book in this series, cause this left off on a cliffhanger. And I don't know about you but I need to know what happens! I really recommend not only this book, but the whole series. 
After all, you can't read just this one or you won't find out what happens next!
