Author :  Shantaye Brown

Release Date :  Out now

Reviewer : Shannon P

Stars ( O’s ) : OOOO

Author Shantaye Brown








Shantaye Brown held me captive with her writing of Zel. Throughout the book my emotions ran the gammet. At times I found myself cringing at the violence, yet cheering it on. While I was quite drawn to the characters, I was also repulsed by their actions. There were even moments that had me laughing out loud.

The sex scenes were very well written and extremely hot.  I am anxious to see where Shantaye Brown takes the story from here and can’t wait for the next book. I give Zel 4 O’s.

*I received Zel as an ARC for an honest review.



***Comprehensible Jamaican dialect is used throughout the story because the heroine ‘Zel’ is half Jamaican***

This is not your typical love story. The questionable ‘heroine’ is not the victim, she’s the bad-guy you’ll probably love and hate… Depends on your sanity.

Asher stalked her because there was something about her that was undeniable, she’s a mystery and he’s drawn to her like nothing else, but nothing could prepare him for what he found.

Zel makes people’s problems go away. She’s cynical, aggressive and has no regard for human life, but when Asher crosses her path he becomes a problem she couldn’t possibly ‘make go away’ as easy as the others.

Asher finds himself in way too deep when the lives of everyone he loves is threatened and he has to play the willing captive to keep them safe.

Zel has her own problems, someone wants her dead and they’re not shy about it. They both won’t be safe until she gets to them first.

Secrets unfold, lies are told and sacrifices are made. Consequences be damned.

Warning: Extreme violence, graphic sex, filthy Jamaican language and an overly aggressive and possessive heroine 18+

About this author:

Proud Jamaican mother of two ball python snakes. Shantaye has split personality and has accepted that the voice inside her head is her best friend and so she named her “Ying.”
Ying is the darker side of her personality and comes out during writing. Shantaye enjoys reading about free spirited heroes/heroins. She loves her characters reckless and free so she writes to embody them that way, forever free and immortalized in the hearts and minds of her readers.
Her debut book “Zel (Deviants & Saints, #1)” is the 1st installment of a three part series and is expected to be released on December 12.
