Flesh Cartel #REVIEW


The Flesh Cartel by Rachel Haimowitz & Heidi Belleau is an intensely masterful psycho-thriller.
Sublime service, made to order.

The Flesh Cartel: an international, multi-billion-dollar black market that trades in lost souls. Or more specifically, their bodies.

Highly organized and frighteningly efficient, the Flesh Cartel could teach even the KGB a thing or two about breaking a human mind. Fortunately for their ultra-rich clients, they’re just as skilled at putting people back together again—as perfect pets, well-trained and eager to please.

No matter what your secret tastes or dark desires, the Flesh Cartel—for the right price, of course—will hand-design the plaything of your dreams

Orphaned brothers Mat and Dougie Carmichael are stolen in the night from their own home. Taken to a horrifying processing facility, they are assessed, microchipped, and subjected to unspeakable brutality—all in preparation for sale to the highest bidder. Then they’re sold, trained, and tortured.

In a world where every person has a price, the beautiful and subduable PhD student Dougie is highly prized. His brother, a rough-edged MMA fighter, is less desirable—and potentially too dangerous—but he still has his own appeal.

Abused and locked up under round the clock surveillance, with no idea where they are or even why they’ve been taken, escape seems impossible, which leaves staying together their only hope. And after being separated once by the foster system, they'll do anything to keep it from happening again. Anything at all.

(Publisher's note: This title contains material some may find objectionable or trigger-inducing, including explicit violence, non-consent, and forced incest.)

REVIEW
Heed the Publisher’s Warning. This series is intense in the most potent of ways. It’s NOT a romance but rather a psycho-thriller. Now that I’ve mentioned that, let me also say that I couldn’t put the books down. What these men go through and the deep emotional thread in the story held me captive. I moved from shock during the first two books, horror and then anger at their treatment. By the end of book six, I was intrigued by the brothers’ ability to survive.

Because the authors are masterful storytellers that don’t shy away from the taboo, the journe of their characters can’t be predicted. With no idea where the books will take me next, I just have to keep reading and reading... and I’m praying in the end that there’s some redemption, or maybe some sweet revenge for Mat and Dougie.
