    I can’t believe I was introduced to Gemma James and her Condemned series back in 2015 with the first book Torrent. Deviant is book 5 and it was so good to be back with Alex and Rafe. Their relationship is unconventional to say the least but it works for them. Their dark and twisted urges keep their guilt and demons away. Rafe is darker than ever but his love and protectiveness for Alex is really what fuels him. He can and will get rough with Alex but she needs and feeds off it cause her guilt is I can’t believe I was introduced to Gemma James and her Condemned series back in 2015 with the first book Torrent.

Their dark and twisted urges keep their guilt and demons away. Rafe is darker than ever but his love and protectiveness for Alex is really what fuels him. He can and will get rough with Alex but she needs and feeds off it cause her guilt is still eating at her. She was the reason Rafe was put in jail back then because of her lies. Besides her guilt she fears he will leave her. They both struggle with honesty because of fear of hurting each other. Their past soon catches up with them and it was a thrilling and erotic ride. It was so easy to get back in the Condemned universe. I love these two flawed and broken characters who’ll never give up fighting. For each other. Their love and faith in each other is stronger than ever. It was good to see Rafe’s friend Jax again cause his friendship with Rafe is definitely unique too. Deviant is not the end and I can’t wait to read the next book cause I can’t get enough of Rafe and Alex. 4 BadAssDirtyDarkAndTwistedStars

    “I came back, and I’m never going anywhere again. I need you too damn much.” I’d never tire of hearing him say it. It felt good to be needed by him. To be loved by him even though I deserved neither. “Promise?” “Fuck, yes.” Oh My...I sure did miss Alex and Rafe! To watch these two broken people struggle to reach their HEA is heartbreaking. You know what they have both been through. You know how much they love each other. You want things to be easy for them.

You know what they have both been through. You know how much they love each other. You want things to be easy for them. Gemma James didn't make it easy and I love her for it. They struggle. Alex gets in her head. Rafe is possessive (but I ❤ that). People from their past. So much to struggle with but their love is strong. Neither one is giving up what they want. Every book I have read by this author grabs me from page one and doesn't let me go until the end. I cried for these characters. My heart raced because I was so frustrated at times. If a book can make me have such strong emotions you know its amazing! Rafe is still his sinfully, dominate self and sexy as hell. Which had me searching for MY hubby when I was finished reading... I'm not sure HOW I was able to forget about the "Ginger" but I had. Now I remember. *shutters violently* Now. I. Remember. If you have read the first four books in this series then just wait until you see what happens next! If you haven't read any of them yet...GO NOW and enjoy the ride! **I received an arc of this book from the Gemma James in exchange for my honest review.**

    This whole series is so good but I thought this book was the last one and was happy that finally Rafe and Alex would get their HEA. I did not see that end coming and to be honest it feels like this book is really just dragging right now. But that's not gonna stop me from reading next one. After all I really want Alex and Rafe to have their HEA. This whole series is so good but I thought this book was the last one and was happy that finally Rafe and Alex would get their HEA.

Rafe being Rafe knows when Alex is hiding her demons!!! And true to Rafe style, he will get her to confess what she is trying to hide.

Rafe knows how to cook up a steamy scene using his favorite spices, that’s for sure!! He knows just how far he can take Alex. The perfect amount of trust between the two is what is needed, Rafe will make sure of this! Love is professed, spoken by Rafe in words that are easily spoken…without actually saying the I Love You typical words… Consumed. Territorial. Protective. Twitterpated. Whipped. Obsessed. But when the past comes to haunt them once again, is trust enough for these two to survive? How far will one go to ensure that Alex is theirs? #BookBistroBlogApproved Follow us on: FB – https://www.facebook.com/groups/BookB...

    I probably would have liked this better if it hadn't been so long since I read the other books in the series. I was hazy on the details. I don't remember exactly how the last book ended, but remembered thinking it was the final one. It was a surprise to get another book. I wish I had known there is going to be a sixth one. Now I've got to wait until June to find out how this cliffhanger is resolved. I probably would have liked this better if it hadn't been so long since I read the other books in the series.

    3 1/2 stars I really want to like this story, but it was more about punishing Alex than anything. In the past books there was more plot. Rafe and Alex are not normal couple by any means. This reason is what makes them stand out. The story didn't really start until the end. Where Zack, Alex's step brother, comes back for her. Rafe is taken over leverage over his son. 3 1/2 stars I really want to like this story, but it was more about punishing Alex than anything. In the past books there was more plot.

Re-enter the world of Gemma James and the deliciously sinful and cruel relationship of Rafe and Alex. All consuming darkness that is twisted and mind numbing, all awhile you can’t put the book down. Filled with heart pounding moments within the bedroom and out, Gemma knows how to scorch your kindle! Will there be a HEA for Rafe and Alex or will they always be on the run? Deviant will grab you, pull you, stretch you in ways you never thought possible. As a fan of Gemma and the Condemned series, I knew that Rafe is a very dominant, cruel selfish man, and he doesn’t disappoint in this fifth installment. If you are just now wanting to dive into this twisted tale, you need to begin with Torrent to understand the context and actions behind these characters. “Love had no definition. It was the insanity that glued two hearts together, the possessiveness that gripped the soul, the inevitability that arrowed straight for the jugular.” Rafe and Alex’s love is unconditional in their unique relationship, but it’s strong and palpable. They thought by escaping and finding solitude in the wilderness and then eventually back in ‘the cabin’ they could move on to a better life. Fate is not so nice as old players are making their appearances causing issues within each of their trusted love. Secrets are shed, trust will be broken and punishment will be laid out. But together love will always mend. “...the thing about obsession; it was a prison, an inspirer of madness. It was the bind that tied Rafe and me together, the urgency that festered in my soul. An ember that never stopped burning, no matter how long Rafe and I had been on the run.” I have loved reconnecting with the sadistic, possessive man that Rafe is with Alex. Gemma doesn’t leave out any amount of sordid details with how Rafe always gets underneath Alex’s skin, her thoughts and her actions. Even though their relationship is dysfunctional from the outside world, it works for them. Both still are suffering traumatic episodes from their past and must confront them head on, more so for Alex. There are definitely moments that were hard to read and certain players that are lurking who reappear, I wanted to throw my kindle as I really want Rafe and Alex to have their perfect happy ending, but Gemma always keeps you on your toes! 5 Stars in the continuation of Rafe and Alex’s twisted journey in Deviant!

    After all they’ve been through,Alex and Rafe needed time to heal. Time to get back to what they were. To leave the past where it belonged,in the past. And when they were ready,get married.....But did the past leave them? Just when i thought it would,Gemma drops the bomb....and leaves me with a killer cliffhanger! Now i have to find a way to survive until Descent arrives in june.....

    I forgot what a cruel and sadistic man Rafe was...and how much he loved Alex, and she loved him! Their relationship would look so messed up and dysfunctional to the majority of people, but it works for them and they like it. Having said that, I went into this book expecting one thing, and got another all together! Not a bad thing, it was just a BIG surprise to me how the book ended, and I hate to tease you like that, but I refuse to give spoilers too!

    OMFG! I read this book in one sitting because I didn't want to put the book down. If there is one thing Gemma James is good at, it is writing a story that is edgy and will have you hanging on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the very end.

    Let me start by saying that you really need to read the previous books in this series (in order) to really understand the mind set of the people involved and how their relationship works. It is dark and somewhat masochist/sadistic yet it is what the h/H each need. If you go into this book without having all the background, you will find yourself not only confused, but probably fuming as well at the Hero's treatment towards the heroine. If you've read the other books then you know what to expect Let me start by saying that you really need to read the previous books in this series (in order) to really understand the mind set of the people involved and how their relationship works. It is dark and somewhat masochist/sadistic yet it is what the h/H each need. If you go into this book without having all the background, you will find yourself not only confused, but probably fuming as well at the Hero's treatment towards the heroine. If you've read the other books then you know what to expect in terms of the darkness. This book starts a few months after book four ends. The couple are living off the grid, moving from location to location trying to stay hidden from 'the bad guys.' Rafe still gets turned on by causing pain and having control over Alex, and she still needs the pain he inflicts to keep away the nightmares. The h/H are the only people involved in the majority of this book (as they are hidden away,) but his friend, Jax, reappears with a newcomer to the story, and there is a surprise cameo from an old acquaintance or two. This does end with cliffhanger. Nothing was resolved in this book, no answers given... just more 'What's going to happen to them now?' There is a brief moment of happiness for the two, but it was just that.... brief. (Which is nothing new with these two people... not that is was their fault, as trouble seems to follow them.) There are some cringe worthy moments, and this series really isn't for the faint of heart. The sexual content is the primary factor to this book/series. It really is what drives these two people. They know they are "f*cked up" (due to the things that have happened to them in the past,) and they know they will never live 'normal lives.' If you enjoy these gritty and dark/evil type of books, you won't find many that you will enjoy more than this series. It's a great story in that disturbed kind of way. The characters are written perfectly for their roles. My only compliant... Rafe is constantly having to punish Alex for doing things he deems unsafe/unhealthy (because she needs it to learn, and often seems a tad extreme) or forcing her to do things she is terrified of to help her get over those fears and become a stronger person, but anytime she stands up for herself or tries to push him to do the same, she is punished more. I feel there should be a little more give and take on his part. He's trying to help her, but won't let her help him. This makes me like him a little less. I understand where he is coming from, but it feels like he's being a hypocrite. Just because he gets off on the control, doesn't mean he can't occasionally let her have a little of it, and who knows, maybe he'll heal along the way too. It's written from alternating POVs. Flows smoothly, and reads easily. If you haven't figured it out by now, it is definitely meant for mature readers. Not only for the sexual content but for the subject matter as well. *I volunteered to review an ARC of this book.

Rafe knows that Alex can't fully give herself, as she still battles the dark in her past (just ask Rafe). Is their love stronger enough to face fears, test boundaries, keep secrets to reveal answers?? And will Rafe give Alex the one thing that she wants more than anything?? With the light of dawn in front of them, you know the saying 'It's always the darkest before the dawn.' Damn I want to lick Gemma James brain in a non-creepy way!!!! She has release another stellar and captivating book that has you immersed into a world of pure unadulterated crazy, leaving you panting and that ending...... WOW. The characters are broken, yet together they are breathtaking. Their need for one another goes beyond love, it's a necessity to live and that is so mesmerising to read. Gemma James is what I call 'Golden Oil', her heart and soul is gold, but her mind is as black as oil, just like her books and I crave every word. Her storytelling is pure brilliant and I was left with goosebumps and a jaw dropping *gasp*. To say I loved this story wouldn't give it enough justice, but I'm giddy with the anticipation for the next book. Magnificent job and don't ever stop writing!!!!!! ~~Reviewed by Lipsmackin Goodbooks ~~

    Such a dark and beautiful love story. Rafe and Alex are meant to be together. If they can just find a way to survive without the people out to hurt them they will have a great life together.

Once again their lives are in danger and there is no sight of it changing any time soon. Maybe Alex's quick thinking will get Rafe back on the island so that they can come up with a plan to rid themselves of Zach forever. Alex just has to survive long enough for help to come to save her. I love this series and I am so ready to read each and every installment when it comes out. It is such a dark love story, but it also has such a great story line that it makes it a MUST read for me. I love that Rafe realizes that his love for Alex is all consuming, but that he would do anything to save her and have her in his life, even if his dark desires surface daily. If you like a beautiful love story, but with dark content, then you should really read this series by Gemma James. Deviant is the 5th book in the Condemned Series. It's a great series to read. I give Deviant at 5 star review, and I look forward to more of this series in the future.

    So this book is continuation of Condemned series, this is a fifth book. I was introduced to Gemma James with this series. I fell in love with Alex and Rafe. So when it ended at book four I was kind of disappointed a little because I felt like it abruptly stoped, I never realized there will be more books. I was happy to see Deviant coming out, however in my opinion break between fourth and fifth book is to long. To be honest I kind of forgot about the story, I definitely forgot all the details, s So this book is continuation of Condemned series, this is a fifth book. I was introduced to Gemma James with this series. I fell in love with Alex and Rafe. So when it ended at book four I was kind of disappointed a little because I felt like it abruptly stoped, I never realized there will be more books. I was happy to see Deviant coming out, however in my opinion break between fourth and fifth book is to long. To be honest I kind of forgot about the story, I definitely forgot all the details, so when I started Deviant it took me little bit to get into it. Also now that I finished it I have to tell you this is not the end. I was ready for end, I think Deviant should have tied the loose ends, wraps it up nicely and finish the series with this book. Again, this is just my opinion. Now the book itself is good. It was nice to get into Alex and Rafe’s crazy world again. And these two are crazy in their own unique way. They are twisted, damaged, full of guilt, fears and also crazy in love. I like how the story developed. If you read Condemned series you definitely need to continue to see what happens with these two. If you didn’t read it yet, you can start with the first book now, or wait until whole series is out to read it all. I did enjoy this read!

    "Love had no definition. It was the insanity that glued two hearts together, the possessiveness that gripped the soul, the inevitability that arrowed straight for the jugular." I was so excited to meet Rafe and Alex again!! Their dark, twisted, dirty fairytale had me hooked when I binged the series a few months ago, so there really wasn't a choice when I got a chance to review. The thing I love most about this series, is that it may not be your typical HEA, but it's theirs, and you can feel it wh "Love had no definition.

It really is a binge-worthy series that is kinky as all get out, suspenseful, exciting, and I always look forward to diving in!!

    'But the past beat me to the battlefield. The f**king past had set off the first bomb, and now I found myself hunched down in the destruction. My chest squeezed, and despite going through several rounds of breathing exercises, I still couldn't pull in a full breath.' Alex and Rafe are back in book five of Deviant and it was like reuniting with your worst nightmare and your best friend at the same time. God, what is it about this depraved man that keeps us coming back for more? I suppose it could 'But the past beat me to the battlefield.

Alex and Rafe are back in book five of Deviant and it was like reuniting with your worst nightmare and your best friend at the same time. God, what is it about this depraved man that keeps us coming back for more? I suppose it could be his sexy-as-sin dominance, his dark twisted discipline or his obsession with ginger. . . All kidding aside, Deviant was about two broken souls who conquered their demons together. Who persevered through their pain to come out on the other side. Lets face it, Alex and Rafe are not your typical couple but their relationship works and their twisted love is strong and Deviant. I LOVE the Condemned series and Ms. James just keeps getting better and better. I would highly recommend this series to all lovers of dark romance. 18+

    Rafe and Alex are back and they’re still going head to head. With Rafe desperate to keep Alex safe, he shows her in his own special way that he’ll protect even from herself. I love the fucked up, unusual, complex relationship between these two. With their relationship changing, Alex finds herself keeping secrets which doesn’t go over well with Rafe. Rafe is his usual panty melting, dominant, sometimes cruel self but the love he has for Alex makes me forgive him for just about anything.

With danger chasing them, can Rafe and Alex finally get their hea? When someone else close to Rafe is put at risk, everything seems to be going wrong for this messed up duo and it’s anyone’s guess what will happen. I’ve loved this series since the beginning and Rafe and Alex yet again showed me why I love them so much. With loads of action both in the bedroom and out of it, I couldn’t put this book down.

    This is a quick read but I can not stress enough to read the other books in the series first. Or you will be totally confused and lost in the story. This series as with each book gets better and darker as each one comes out. It drags you in and you feel all of the pain, heartache and even the love that Rafe and Axel share. But don't think you know what will happen next because Gemma James will throw you for a loop and give you something that you were not expecting.

I am not going to give anything away and spoil it for anyone. I am going to say, read this series and you will understand. I will tell you that it is dark, so if you are not a fan, then please step away and read something else. But if you love a good dark story, then just aboard the roller coaster and enjoy the ride. I loved everything about it. **Copy provided by the author and this is my honest review**

    Well...*Spoilers* I wanted this to be another five star read, but I couldn't bring myself to enjoy it that much. I love a story of love and the challenges of it, but in my opinion, this one goes a bit too far. This isn't love by any means. I've heard of many couples who are kinky and enjoy it majorly. But letting others see it, letting others participate in any fashion is dead wrong.

But letting others see it, letting others participate in any fashion is dead wrong. There were other things, when Alex begged him not to bring in such conditions and he did anyway, it made me feel hollow inside. No matter how strong a person is, they still need compassion. Also, when Angel came into the story, having suffered terrible abuse, only to be witness to more of it. I can't enjoy reading such a thing. Love the author, love her talent. This just wasn't a favorite.
