🦅The Ravenhood Duet🦅
By: Kate Stewart
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July. 27, 2020
Can you keep a secret?
I grew up sick.
Let me clarify.
I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.
Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.
When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.
Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.
Secrets that cost us everything to keep.
That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.
Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.
And all were punished.
Both books in The Ravenhood Duet are now available and must be read in order!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 𝟔/𝟓 𝓞𝓿𝓮𝓻𝓪𝓵𝓵 𝓡𝓪𝓽𝓲𝓷𝓰: Flock, book one of The Ravenhood Duet by Kate Stewart is a phenomenal, captivating, complex, unconventional, and unforgettable romance filled with suspense, action, steam, and ALL THE FEELS!

By the end of the prologue, I was completely hooked. Literally COULD NOT put this book down. Yes, you read that right, THE PROLOGUE!!! House is burning down? Oh well. The kid is screaming? OH F*****G WELL! I went into this book pretty much blind, I had read the blurb but I think we can all agree that it’s REALLY vague (which is completely on purpose because Stewart is an evil genius!) but other than that I dove right in. I think that’s the BEST way to read this one. Don’t read many reviews, just DIVE IN! I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING. I probably thought or said that a hundred times while reading Flock. With that being said, this will be a super short review because I want you to have the same feeling I had while reading this unforgettable epic novel.

Told from our heroine, Cecelia’s POV.
Nineteen-year-old Cecelia Horner has just moved to small-town Triple Falls to spend a year working at one of her estranged father’s factories in order to secure her inheritance funds to take care of her mother before she heads off to college.
On her first day at the plant, she befriends Sean. A gorgeous twenty-five-year-old bad boy that invites her to a party back at his house where she’s introduced to his lawless brotherhood of friends and his best friend, Dominic.

Cecelia is the type of girl who’s always played by the rules, the wallflower that lives life on the safe side. But these reckless guys encourage her to come out of her shell, open her mind, explore her sexuality, embrace life, and live in the NOW without limitations.

The boys and their lives are shrouded in darkness and secrets but Cecelia can’t help the pull she feels towards them. But the deeper she’s pulled into the flock, the more dangerous things become and not just for her heart…
What was becoming the best Summer of Cecelia’s life quickly turns into something she could have never prepared for when all those secrets finally start coming to light…
Fast cars, drugs, parties, sex, secrets, lies, a ménage à trois, and one heck of an epic romantic suspense, you do NOT want to miss out on The Ravenhood Duet!
Kate Stewart has done an amazing job with this one and I applaud her for stepping out of the box and giving us something COMPLETELY different than anything I’ve EVER read before. THIS TYPE OF BOOK IS WHY I LOVE READING. There’s just something about it that draws you in, letting you step outside of your reality and step into another one while putting your brain into overdrive and keeping you guessing the whole way through. The way the story is told is very, VERY cryptic but man oh man.. once some of those secrets start to unravel and you slowly but surely start putting all the pieces of the puzzle together, it is so much MORE than worth it. (Did ya see what I did there? 😉) Stewart posted somewhere that The Ravenhood Duet is a mix of a modern-day take on Robin Hood, but with a Fast and Furious and Fight Club vibe… looking back, now that I’ve read both books, I could not describe this one better. Well played Ms. Stewart, BRAV-FREAKIN-O! 👏👏
⚠️ 𝓣𝓻𝓲𝓰𝓰𝓮𝓻 𝓦𝓪𝓻𝓷𝓲𝓷𝓰: There are difficult subjects that could be considered triggers. E.g. violence, drugs, anddd… I REALLY hate to give spoilers but I feel like the book has been out for quite a bit now and this is just one of those things that readers really NEED to know before going into a book like this because although I love these reads, they aren’t for everyone. SPOILER TAG, if you don’t want to know, DO NOT LOOK! ⬇️⬇️⬇️

I know some readers aren’t into that… BUT, just take my word for it and STICK WITH IT. There are some things that happen in book one, that will straighten themselves out in book two… I’ve said too much already sooo, READ.THIS.BOOK!!!
🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪 𝟓/𝟓 𝓒𝓵𝓲𝓯𝓯𝓱𝓪𝓷𝓰𝓮𝓻 𝓦𝓪𝓻𝓷𝓲𝓷𝓰: That cliffhanger… OH.MY.GOD!!! Trust me when I tell you, don’t start Flock unless you are prepared to jump right into Exodus afterward. THANK GOD I didn’t sign up for an ARC of this one and waited until both books were released because sheesh… I would have REALLY lost my mind! There are still a lot of unanswered questions and… I can’t wait to dive into book two.

IMO, Flock was an absolutely amazing read, but I know that won’t be the case for some. The BEST thing I could tell you, just go into it with an open mind. After reading Exodus… I’m just going to say there may be some things you don’t like that happen in book one that will straighten out in book two… I know I’m being as vague as Flock’s blurb but I really think this one is best read with as little info as possible.
If you are a romantic suspense lover who is looking for something outside of the box, I HIGHLY recommended you READ THIS BOOK NOW!
