Unhinged by Onley James

Unhinged by Onley James is a M/M romance series about vigilante brothers & I can’t get enough!

Publication Date: June 30, 2021

Synopsis: Adam Mulvaney lives a double life. By day, he’s the spoiled youngest son of an eccentric billionaire. By night, he’s an unrepentant killer, one of seven psychopaths raised to right the wrongs of a justice system that keeps failing.

Noah Holt has spent years dreaming of vengeance for the death of his father, but when faced with his killer, he learns a daunting truth he can’t escape. His father was a monster.

Unable to ignore his own surfacing memories, Noah embarks on a quest to find the truth about his childhood with the help of an unlikely ally: the very person who murdered his father. Since their confrontation, Adam is obsessed with Noah, and he wants to help him uncover the answers he seeks, however dark they may be.

The two share a mutual attraction, but deep down, Noah knows Adam’s not like other boys. Adam can’t love. He wasn’t born that way. But he refuses to let Noah go, and Noah’s not sure he wants him to.

Can Adam prove to Noah that passion, power, and protection are just as good as love?

Who knew I needed a M/M romance series about vigilante brothers in my life?

I’ll preface this by saying I am not a “dark romance” reader. I don’t enjoy being tortured by books or being emotionally ripped apart & I sure don’t enjoy trauma or emotional abuse in my romances. After reading the synopsis, I wasn’t sure this book would be for me.

Well, it only took me about 5 pages to realize this Unhinged by Onley James is definitely for me. It’s sexy, suspenseful, tense, full of open door romance, dark humor & clear communication from the male leads. I’m a huge fan of the TV show Dexter & Criminal Minds & this has a lot of similarities – in the best way!

Honestly, I didn’t know I needed this book series in my life, but as soon as I started, I couldn’t put it down. It kept me up late at night & the author weaves the past of each of the characters together so well. I also appreciate that each of the characters had a past & that Noah was such a believable cinnamon roll. I just loved everything about this & I’m on to book 2! Be sure to check out the author’s content warnings & I’ll list them below.

Content Warnings: discussions regarding child abuse, murder, foster care system, sex, revenge

From the author: Unhinged is a fast-paced, roller coaster ride of a romance with an HEA and no cliffhangers. It features a dirty-talking, possessive psychopath and a sweet cinnamon roll of a boy with Daddy issues and a core of steel. There’s gratuitous violence, very dark humor, enough steam to fog up a hundred car windows, and something a lot like love. This is book one in the Necessary Evils series. Each book follows a different couple.
