Our Review

‘My heart was a static flatline, even though I told myself it wasn’t. I’d forgotten who I was, fading into myself for so long that I didn’t recognise my own soul anymore.’

Poison by Jade West is now our favourite book by this author. It was absolutely compelling with a great storyline, we just could not put it down. And in true Jade West style, it was oh so filthy. So very filthy we cringed at times, but only in that funny and somewhat OMG way that we love, because whilst it may be a bit eww in parts, it’s also very very hot! We have to say, that when Jade West characters love, they love without abandon and their sex lives literally knows no boundaries or limits, rather they let the moment dictate the filth. When you love, you love absolutely everything about the other person and nothing is seen as taboo! Poison is a highly emotional and raw second chance romance which is fuelled by lies and repercussions. It was messy, it was ugly, it was tragic and it was incredibly intense. Two broken souls and hearts who reconnect with a ping from a text message, opening a can of worms whilst revisiting a ferocious passion and love affair.

‘The thrill of knowing something was coming. Something that set your very soul alight with the need. The want. The craving. The fire and the burn and the crazy pull of flesh on flesh. Oh hell yes, I knew it.’

Anna is living in an emotionless state with her fiancée, Sebastian. Where her life used to be full of colour and passion, it’s now the exact opposite, coupled with a medical diagnosis which restricts her confidence. However, she also holds the weight of a heavy gratitude on her shoulders, which dictates her life. Succumbing to complete controlling manipulation. That is until one evening when she’s reminded of just what passion and need looks like. What feeling wanted truly feels like.  Anna makes a life changing decision, damn any consequential regrets. We really loved Anna, she was sweet, sassy, strong yet so vulnerable. Her mates were awful to her but she stood her ground and we’re so happy she did! Her broken heart be damned.

‘The guy was a monster in the bedroom, a monster of pure perverted brilliance. Just a shame he’d been so much of a monster outside of it.’ ‘And there he was. The man who’d broken my heart into a thousand pieces and left me clutching at the shards.’ ‘He was toxic. Poisonous. The fatality of every scrap of my heart when he’d trashed it all to pieces without even looking back. The man who consumed me, promised me the stars, then destroyed me and left me a betrayed mush on the floor, sobbing my guts up and retching myself to sleep at night.’

Lucas Pierce is hot. He’s filth. He’s masterful and he’s such a top bloke! He feels like shit, like his life is not his own. He was and still is in love with a cracking girl who he can’t be with, because of one stupid drunken mistake. The other women in his life are controlling, manipulative and quite frankly complete bitches, we wanted to punch them! Except for his sweet darling daughter, the only good thing in his very messy life. Lucas has a good heart underneath the arrogance and the ‘I hate everything and everyone’ attitude, and we truly felt for him. He blames himself for everything that’s shit in his life and often calls himself out. But, he also loves without abandon and carries that mantra into the bedroom or wherever takes his fancy. Lucas is actually quite magnificent in our eyes and we completely agree with Anna, there really is no man quite like him, for her. Seriously…he really is quite something!

‘Fire. Spark. Passion. Us. I knew I was her poison. I knew I was the toxic need that drove her crazy, just as crazy as my need for her drove me. Only mine had no hate chained along with it.’ ‘I needed her to hate me and carry on living her life, and curse my name whenever she thought of me. I needed her to run away from me and never even try to reach out and ask me why.’

So yeah, we bloody loved this book. The storyline was honest, addictive, heart-breaking and somewhat dark. What we also loved about Poison was that the filthy scenes with their scorching sexual chemistry felt natural in their placement and that the story held its own brilliantly, ensuring a flawless and natural development. The intensity of emotions is superbly written with an emphasis on love, forgiveness and second chances. The pushing of boundaries, eye-opening, the freezer time in abundance! This is erotic romance at its very best from Jade West!

‘He was rough. Fierce. Craving for more of me just as I was craving for him. And he was absolutely fucking incredible.’



He was the man who destroyed me. The monster who left me in pieces over a decade ago.
I swore I’d never speak to him again, that I’d never set eyes on him again as long as I lived.
But I was wrong.
When life gets too much and you need to escape, the poison that might kill you becomes oh so tempting.

I craved his perverted ways, his smirk, his laughter as he pushed my body way past its limits.
I needed a release from the crazy. Just once.
Just one night. That’s what I told myself.
No strings, no illusions, no promises. Nothing but the lasting thrill of his flesh on mine.
The lasting hit of his poisonous touch.
But when poison runs through your veins, the way he runs through mine, it’s toxic and eats you alive.

This much passion always comes at a price…
