Sweet Poisons Cover Image


Rhett Sullivan
Mysterious boy painted in shades of red.

Nova Markov
Eccentric girl dripping in sunshine.

He was the type mothers warned their little girls about—a cocky, rich asshole with a pretty smile, unapologetically insane and wild.

I was the type guys like him usually ignored—a free spirit who hid my crazy beneath an odd good girl façade and the art hanging on my studio walls.

What blossomed between us, our ‘relationship,’ was maniacal.

We got stuck in a cycle of madness.

Rhett Sullivan became a bittersweet poison I couldn’t get enough of.

In the end, that’s what destroyed me.
Because in the end?

Our love was nothing but a lie.

My Review


Sweet Poisons by Natalie Bennett was one of my most anticipated reads of 2019! If you follow me then you already know Natalie Bennett (A.K.A the Queen of Darkness) is one of my all-time favorite authors! Dark reads are my jam, I’d take dark love/romance over a rom-com ANY DAY and NO ONE does dark like Natalie Bennett! So of course when I heard she was trying her hand in dark YA/NA, I was ALL over that shit! If you are planning on starting this one make sure you have nothing on your schedule because trust me, you will NOT be able to put this one down!

Sweet Poisons Collage

Nova has been living a quite isolated life in Legacy Falls after her parent’s death. That is until a new guy covered in tattoos shows up and turns her quite little whole world upside down.

“Rhett Fucking Sullivan. He came into my life like a wrecking ball, demolishing every defense I had.”

Nova Markov, she’s quiet, a borderline alcoholic that’s just numbing what I assume is the Sweet Poisons Novapain of losing her parents and the mystery that surrounds their death, but just like with Rhett, there’s more to the quiet and shy persona Nora presents to her friends and everyone else in their small college town. There is something much darker lurking right underneath the surface and when the TRUE Nora finally comes out to play, I have a feeling we are in for a shocker!

“She’s not something that can be explained. Beautifully twisted, practically insane. She only lets her demons out when she thinks no one is watching.”

Rhett Sullivan, this sexy bad boy is an enigma, mystery surrounds him. He’s the perfect Sweet Poisons Rhetthero/anti-hero (I haven’t decided which category he falls under just yet, read the book and you’ll understand) he’s charming and he will sweep you off your feet… but the whole time he’s doing the sweeping, he’s also up to no good and keeping a whole lot of secrets. Rhett holds his cards close to his chest but those secrets are right on the surface just about to boil over. We still don’t know WHY exactly he and his friends showed up in Legacy Falls, but just friends partying for the summer doesn’t ring true after getting to know these killer, bad boys.

These two together are like fire and gasoline! Nova has her own secrets and the only person who’s ever even come close to seeing the “real” her, is Rhett. The chemistry between them has been sizzling since the moment they laid eyes on each other, well the moment Nova laid eyes on Rhett I should say…

Sweet Poisons Teaserrr

The sex, I mean have you read a Natalie B. book before? If not then let me just tell you, she never disappoints in this category! 🔥🔥🔥

“Alcohol could be bad for you, but Rhett Sullivan was a different type of poison. And I’d already over-indulged.” 

Sweet Poisons TeaserThat ending, SHEESH! I have literally NO IDEA what the hell is going to happen next but after that cliffhanger, I surely can not wait to find out! Knowing Natalie, I’m sure whatever it is, it’s going to be one hell of a twist!

How can I NOT mention this cover, I mean HOLY SHIT! Freakin Facebook tried to BAN it! Doesn’t get much hotter than that ya’ll! 🔥🔥🔥

It’s suspenseful, steamy AF, has a sexy badass alpha hero/anti-hero, jam-packed full of suspense, secrets, and instalove/instalust, oh and did I mention suspense?! Trust me, you do NOT want to miss this one! I highly recommend checking out Sweet Poisons!

So now, I’m ready to hold my breath and kick and scream until Natalie gives me Sweet Remedies!


P.S- Thank fuck that this is a duet, I don’t think my heart could handle a trilogy!

“No one’s ever who they say they are. We’re all liars in some way or another, covering our ugly truths with pretty lies.”
