Carnage (Four Horsemen Book 1) Kindle Edition
Prescott Ellis - Pestilence.
They call us The Four Horsemen.
Four friends forged in fire and blood.
No one knows where we came from nor how we got our name.
Drake, Francis, West and I rule the financial industry like kings.
Gods in our own right.
We grew up with a fifth. A girl. Scarlett.
She was one of us until she was ripped away from her life. The only trace of her was dust in the wind.
One day she returned to the city and sought us out. Scarlett couldn’t remember who we’d been to her, but we recalled her all too well.
If she knew what was good for her, she would have never come back. The moment she stepped through the doors of Fortuity, it was the beginning of her end. And the start of our reign over the girl who wanted us dead.
A dark why choose polyamorous (MFMMM) contemporary retelling of the four horsemen of the apocalypse set in Sarah Bailey's Dark Universe with cliffhangers and a HEA in the final book.

But all in all, it was a good read. Especially towards the end. It really picked up. I like the story. I will be reading the next one.
Spicy scenes are good too!
I really had a hard time understanding and sympathizing with all the characters since the readers were still left completely in the dark about the past of the 5 main characters. Even with the ending of this book, we didn’t get any answers only vague mentions but nothing concrete. Most of the dark romances I have read, I am able to feel some sort of understanding with them which allows me to justify their actions I guess.
There were a lot of double standards which at least the men admitted to but it still didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. I think if I had more details about their past with Scarlett, their behavior would make more sense to me. I got the impression that the men were aware that Scarlett was sent to “take them down” but I am still completely lost with the whole plot. So not only do I not understand what is happening, Scarlett’s reactions aren’t making sense to me either. She almost immediately turns snuggly with the men and hugs them which I think any normal woman wouldn’t push the boundaries quite like that so early on, especially knowing how dark these men are in the sexual escapades.
The repetitive inner dialogue of the men talking about how twisted and depraved they are got old. Their tendency for this behavior is mentioned a few times to be a result of what happened between all of them 10 years prior but once again, we have no idea what happened to even understand. There is dark and twisted lusts and sexual preferences, and then there is this…this takes it all to a whole other level where the woman is truly viewed as a toy. Sometimes sexual play will have the men treating the woman like a toy but once the play is over, they take care of her and give her what she needs, this did not have any aspect of after care. Not even in the inner dialogue of the men did they ever mention how much they wanted to do just that.
I need the after care and so with that being said, I doubt I will continue with this series. After care is important to me so the absence of it was a real struggle for me.

We meet Scarlett the FMC, I need to know more about her backstory, something tells me she hasn’t had an easy life…
we are introduced to Prescott, Francis, West and Drake also known has the four horsemen, the things they do to get what they want, and what they have managed to accomplish they are ruthless and Dark and will stop at nothing to achieve What they set their minds to.
They have been looking for something that was taken many years ago and will do anything in there power to get what it was back, Is all the hard work finally about to pay off!!
Possible spoiler if you’ve not read the blurb!!!

5 stars - less than a day to read because I cannot put it down. I only give 5 stars if it has managed to engage extra emotions from me - extreme lol moments or real teary moments etc. A 5 stars book tends to have me raging about cliff hangers and (legally and not creepily) stalking the author for release dates.
4 stars - 2 days to read or less. A book that I have quite enjoyed reading, feisty MC and some racy scenes with thier romantic interest. I would definitely follow a series and author for 4 star books.
3 stars - takes around 2/3 days to read, usually because I have become distracted and less engaged in some sections but by the end the end I have enjoyed the overall story and would read any sequels.
1/2 stars not given, as I have usually returned it without finishing as I'm not engaged. .
I wasn't completely sure how this book was going to go at one point but my word it just got better and better.
I finished this book with more questions than answers and I absolutely can't wait to get stuck in to the next book.
The 4 horsemen are crazy hot and all fit into the puzzle together perfectly. I can't wait to find out who the people who took Scarlet are and what happened that night. Can't wait for the next book.
This is my 1st Sarah Bailey book and most definitely won't be the last.
