Review: Riot by Tillie Cole

From USA Today bestselling author Tillie Cole comes RIOT (St. Martin’s Griffin; Trade Paperback; March 7, 2017; $15.99; 978-1-250-08628-0), the anticipated gritty and raw final installment of theScarred Souls series.  Cole proves that love can truly overcome everything in her latest compelling and dark romance.  Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.  152 has been living in a drug-induced fog for most of her life, but now she can finally think clearly when she is gifted to one of the death match fighters.  152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.
Brutal. Intense. Passionate. The World of the Scarred Souls.
They call me 901. I am a monster, a killer, a champion. In the blood pit I am a god. I have no name, no family, and no identity. When master says fight, I fight…until I am the only one left standing. I have one goal, to fight so well that I am freed. I don’t need friends, I don’t need women. They are weaknesses. I am strong.

Until I see her. She is gorgeous and kind and off-limits to me. She was stolen as a child to be the worst type of slave and now master wants her. What he wants, he gets. With a smile, she melts my brutal heart. I have never wanted anything more.

I need to make a choice. Freedom or Love. I cannot choose wrong.

I cannot even say any words what so ever when Tillie Cole release another heartbreaking dark race story in her Scarred Souls series. She is a master mind in creating fantastic and addicting dark romance. She knows how to write powerful yet emotional romance story that will break your heart but then rebuild it again. And she did with Riot.
Riot is the continuation of the Scarred Souls series. We get to read about Valentin sister, 152. 152 has been enslaved for her whole life since she was taken as a child. She has been trained to seduce the fighter or please the master. And she has the new job in being the main servant to Master Arziani. 
Master Arziani has so horrible that you immediately want him gone. He is the super controlling person that he wants all of the power no matter what. And he definitely gets it except from 901.
901 is the superior fighter that everyone know it and he does too. He shows no weakness whatsoever. And he has no reasons to abide Master Arziani whatsoever. But Master Arziani is determine to find any weakness that he sends his personal servant, 152. 
901 will definitely fight to the bitter end for his attraction to 152. But he gives in because he is ultimate draw into her beauty and sweetness. Their affair may be unexpected but it is definitely worth it. They are so draw for each other that they are willing to give it all. 
But you know Tillie Cole, there will always be darkness. And it will go very dark in Riot. Definitely expect some challenges between them.
Riot is the perfect title for 152 and 901 because it will lead them toward their booming romance but also their fighting chance. Five Stars.
