The Flesh Cartel #1: Capture by Rachel Haimowitz & Heidi Belleau

FleshCartelCaptureIn this first installment of the exciting new psychosexual thriller, The Flesh Cartel, 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.
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.)

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1This is definitely not a series for the faint of heart. In other words, the warning in the Publisher’s note above shouldn’t be ignored. This first installment is short, but there is nothing sweet about it.

Capture is aptly titled. Dougie was the abductor’s target but when Mat interrupted their capture, it was either kill him and leave behind too many questions or take him as well. From that moment on the story was filled with pretty much non-stop pain, violence and abuse. It was raw and hard to read, but impossible to stop. By the end I was actually glad that there were only between 65-75 pages in this installment. That doesn’t mean that I’m not going to continue reading.

You can purchase each installment separately or you can purchase them by ‘Season.’ Season 1: Damnation, includes Capture and Auction. The rest of the 19 installments are included in Season 2: Fragmentation, Season 3: Transformation, Season 4: Liberation and Season 5: Reclamation. I think I’m going to take my time reading these, even though I have them all. I believe small, painful doses is the way to go…

  1. I read this series as it was released so I automatically had a break between each installment. I definitely needed that, but it certainly didn’t stop me from devouring each piece the moment it hit my kindle. The series is brilliant but incredibly harsh and difficult to read. It doesn’t get any easier. It’s definitely a psychological thriller.

    • It probably won’t take me long to pick up the next one, but I’ll have to read at least one or two other books in between. The writing is brilliant and vivid and harsh… it somehow seems wrong to say that I liked it, but…
