Publisher's Summary

"Bonnie and Clyde meets Kill Bill." - Jenna, Goodreads
His name is Beat, and I should hate him.
Bound, blindfolded and bruised, I'm tied in his basement, waiting for the men who stripped me from clothes and humanity to collect his debt to them. Me.
His name is Nate and I should hate him, but I don't.
I'm not supposed to know his real name, even worse, I'm not supposed to care. He is nothing to me but means to an end. The plan is simple: break free, collect the pieces of my broken soul, kill the bastards and run away.
His name is Nathaniel Thomas Vela, and I've never seen his face, though I hear that it's beautiful.
Behind the rugged and handsome exterior, there's a quiet murderer, a killer who thinks guns are for pussies and ends people with his bare hands.
His name doesn't matter, neither does his face, but what does matter is my heart. And right now, sadly, it's his.
Blood to Dust is a standalone, full-length novel. It contains graphic violence and adult situations some may find offensive.

Beautiful, ugly, agonizing and elating

Blood To Dust tells the story of Prescott, a once privileged rich girl, turned drug dealer, who plans a revenge against the people who hurt her. Her plans fail, and when she's captured, the muscle man assigned to guard her is Nate, the ex-con with the poetic soul.

Prescott's plan is simple - seduce Nate, and make him switch teams.

The first half of the book is a beautiful love story, growing in the ugliest surroundings.
The second part of the book is the horrid, brutal revenge.
There's a lovely happy ending, but just like the rest of book, it's tinted with imperfection.

Blood to Dust is beautiful, ugly, simple, complicated, predictable, surprising, hopeless, hopeful, agonizing and elating.
It's painful, but it's also peppered with captivating, irresistible moments.
As much as I wanted to at times, I couldn't put it down.

The narration was very good, but a dual narration would have been better.

Absolutely loved this book!!

I would give this five stars no doubt. It took me a minute to get used to it being narrated by a male but the story was so impactful and engaging that it no longer mattered. Beat and P are two of the best characters I've read in a long time. This book has tons of twist & turns, a superhot alpha male & a sexy take no BS heroin.

So exciting!

This is a book I love and listening to it is incredible. You hear detail you sometimes miss when to rip through a tense, exciting storyline. Great narration of the two main characters, Nate and Prescott. The only issue I had were the English accents. As a Brit these sections were difficult to listen to. However still an amazing listen.

Not for the faint hearted!!!

Fab audio book.... thoroughly enjoyed it!!! plenty of twists and turns... Some heart stopping moments well worth a listen!!!

Although Godfrey was supposed to be a Cockney Londoner the voice artist made him Sound Northern Irish!!! Not that this was bad but it did make me chuckle!!!

Great story, not so great performance

I read this book and loved it, I decided to download audio to listen to some of my favourite books while I crochet. The performers accent drones on and on completely destroying the story. I am disappointed is this telling.

Intensely emotional

It's another mind blowing story by L J Shen, I can't believed this beautiful lady can write something this gritty, raw and powerful that sucks the breath out of me. I felt emotionally drained and shocked after listening to Michael Pauley brings Nate and Prescott to life, i was so immersed in the story that when it finished i felt cheated. This is a magnificent book and I highly recommend this to anyone who loves epic love story with a lot of vengeance thrown in it.
