Riot (Scarred Souls #4) by Tillie Cole #mf #review @tillie_cole @SMPRomance

Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.

Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.

He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.

But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.

Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.

Words couldn’t begin to express how excited the Scarred Souls series makes me.  Riot is book four and I have yet to find a single chapter in the entire series that falls under the category of boring.  Every word the author has put in this series reaches out to the reader, pulling them into this dark world.  Often I find I don’t even realize how dark the scene was till I am past it because I was totally engulfed in the emotions pouring off the page.
Each book could be read as a stand alone but seriously why would you want to do that?  I strongly advice you jump on book one and buckle up for a ride of a life time.  The evil is vast, the humanity is strong even in situations when humanity was meant to be destroyed.
901 is the male character that will steal your heart.  His life is no longer his own, Master has taken everything from him, except his honor.  As the champion fighter for the Master’s organization, the only rule to the fight is the winner must stay alive.  When Master wants to solidify his reputation and make more money he demands for 901 to appear weak before the kill.  901 will never go for that.  He has deprived himself of affection or lust from women, he has numbed his emotions, crushed his own dreams and refuses to hope, which wasn’t as hard as it sounds since he is fed drugs every day to maintain the power over him.
The one thing that won’t die is his honor, he will not be weak for anyone. This is when the plot thickens because the only weapon the Master has is his personal Mona named 152.
As you can see now the slaves under the Master and his sister, are drugged and their past identity is removed.  152 wakes up in a luxurious room with her own chiri which is the lowest level slave/servant. When 152 becomes fully aware of her surroundings, she is told that she has been promoted to be Master’s sex toy, she will be drugged with new drugs that will make her body crave the Master and be more malleable to his every wish.
What comes next will leave you gripping your kindle, rapidly reading each page so you can find out what happens next.  With an outside war ready to be waged against the Master, will they help 901 and 152 escape or will it be too late?  901’s biggest crime was letting the Master know his trick to weaken him only lead to his devotion to the mona that the Master doesn’t want to share.  There is so many epic qualities to this series.  It will be a set of books that I will be reading over again, assured that I will once again find things I missed the first time because I was lost in the plot.
