Preach. by Stylo Fantôme Release Blitz

A shattered woman.

A changed man.

Church Logan wanted to kill someone, and Emma Hartley wanted to die - they were a match made in hell.

But one little cut, a pint or two of blood, and suddenly everything between them is different.

Are they still destined for greatness? Or has the darkness finally eclipsed them and torn them apart?

Looks like it's time for Church to practice what he preaches.

Ignition, meet explosion.

Warning: If you have triggers – this story will touch on a lot of them. This book is a dark romance.

Preach is sequel to Church, and it absolutely cannot be read as a standalone. If you haven't read Church, I suggest you don't read further in this review to avoid spoilers.

*However, this is a spoiler-free review of Preach.

Preach starts off a few weeks after the climatic ending of Church. Let's rewind a bit. Emma's mother, Margo, married Jerry, who is Church's father. The sociopathic blended family is still working out the kinks.

Margo is abusive, manipulative, and an overall monster – more monstrous than the actual monsters in the novel.

Emma is in recovery (from the abuse in the past and present, as well as detoxing Church from her system), with a few therapists working on helping her move forward from her suicide attempt. Emma's vile mother has power of attorney over her daughter, removing the young woman's autonomy.

Written in dual-perspective of Emma (narrated the majority of the novel) and Church, the writing style was more stream of consciousness, where there isn't a fluid pace from scene to scene. While this suited the mental health issues, the sociopathy, and the dark content, it didn't capture me quiet as fully as Church (the novel) did.

This novel will trigger anyone who has a #metoo story to tell. The injustice. For large portions of the novel, I felt as if Emma was championing for all of us, doing the things we fantasized about doing to those who take advantage of our gender.

I'm trying hard to avoid spoilers, refusing to mention actual plot points.

This theme of Preach would be 'who is the real monster?' 'Is Emma or Church the driver or the passenger?' 'Do we all have monsters lurking inside us?'

The one who intrigued me the most is bland ol' Jerry.

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
