Excerpt:

“Harlow, Harlow,” he murmurs in reverence, as if my previous profession of love has brought him to his knees.
He takes my hand and brings it to his lips. His gentle kisses make me drift to a memory from a couple hours ago when Sin’s lips brushed over my knuckles. I felt everything then. My senses hummed. Now, I feel nothing.
I try to ease my hand from his, but his grip holds me in place. “Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to hear you say these words?” He places another kiss on my hand. “I forgive you for tonight.”
I do need his forgiveness, because his lips aren’t the ones I want on me. The ones I want belong to the man driving the car behind us. The fact that he’s James’ nephew makes me feel even more ashamed. What is wrong with me?
“You say you love me, but I need you to show me your love. Erase what I saw.” He releases my hand and I can guess what he wants: sex. It’s how he communicates.
“Unzip your dress and remove your bra,” he instructs, his voice rough.
I don’t want to upset him more, so I work myself out of my dress and bra. The air conditioning blows across my bare breasts and my nipples harden. I’m tempted to cover them with my hands, but he wouldn’t approve, so they stay at my sides.
Eyeing my exposed body, he licks his lips, pleased with what he sees. He reaches over to touch the side of my breast, cupping it with his hand. His thumb finds my nipple and strokes over it, pinching it hard. I inhale a sharp breath at the assaulting sensation.
“You’re utter perfection. Feel how hard you make me.” His fingers leave my breast and grip my hand. Placing my hand over his bulging erection and curling my fingers around him, I close my eyes.
“Now, unzip my pants and put me in your hot mouth.”


Our Review:

“Love. It’s a captor, and I’m its prisoner.”


The title and extremely vague blurb were what drew me to this book in the first instance and I also love finding new to me authors. I think when so much is left to your imagination and certainly your own interpretation sometimes what you think you are going to get is not what is delivered and that was the case with this book. For me, I was expecting something dark, suspenseful and twisty and while there are certainly some elements of that throughout the book, for me personally, this was more a romance interspersed with a little suspense.

I loved the authors writing style and quickly became engaged in both the story and the characters, Liv Morris certainly has a talent with words and she managed to totally captivate me with Harlow’s story.

Harlow, although on the outside appeared weak at first glance was an inherently strong woman. She had not had the best start in life and had to work for anything and everything she has ever owned. It has always been Harlow and her mum, right from conception, so she had to grow up fast and while her mum had done everything she possibly could they still lived on the bread line, but they always had each other.


“I am nothing. I am no one. But there’s someone new who believes the opposite.”


Liv Morris really kicks you in the gut in the opening scene and Harlow’s life as she knows it has come to an end, it is now time for Harlow to really stand on her own two feet but sometimes life is just too much and Harlow really needs to find her inner strength.

I really cannot say much more about the story itself as everything that happens is a spoiler. Yes, there are two men in Harlow’s life, but there is no cheating and this is definitely part of the tangled web that Liv Morris weaves throughout this story.

James was a top neurosurgeon and had met Harlow when her life was turned upside down. He was a lot older than Harlow but he inherently loved her, whether that love was healthy and reciprocated remains to be seen. James was controlling and ultra-possessive or should I say obsessive. While I actually believed he loved her, as I said above, it wasn’t healthy and the life that Harlow was living…just simply wasn’t one.


“…a frightened girl searching for direction – lost somewhere between my mother’s apartment and James’ sanctuary.”


Sinclair is James’s nephew and he comes to visit for a while to do a month’s residency at the hospital that James works at. Sinclair is more Harlow’s age but sometimes fresh eyes are just what someone needs to see what is right and what is wrong. Sin immediately fears for the life that Harlow is living and it is with his support that Harlow finally realises that this is far from normal and he gives her the strength and backbone that she needs.

So, who would you marry, who would you screw and who would you kill? For me, all three were filled with characters’ names and actually did so quite quickly in this story. Liv Morris certainly doesn’t dangle the good guy vs bad guy carrot. However, where I thought this story would go is not what happened and for me, I have to admit I felt a little deflated towards the end. This is where I go back to my introduction to this review, it was the vagueness that had me plotting and scheming before I had even read a word and with some epic finale in my head I didn’t get what I expected. However, the ending that was, still wrapped up everything nicely with no stone unturned for the main characters.


“I loved her into unconsciousness.”


Marry Screw Kill is a story of grief, obsession, love and finding yourself. It was an addictive read, one that I didn’t want to put down and I will certainly be checking out other books from this author.
