    1. 4.5 Stars"Make them feel safe and they will sign their lives over to you. Love a lonely girl and she will give you anything."This is the DARKEST and most DISTURBING book I have read to date. The Goodbye Man and his nephew gather people from the streets that wish to die and harvest their organs in the Red Market organ trade. These two disturbed men take in a born whore, Svetlana, and things get even sicker as they both develop feelings for her. There is rape, murder, sex with the dead, and ohh so [...]

    2. 4.5 Stars!!This book was the sh*t. Really! First thing first I want to say this – don’t expect hearts and flowers reading this one. This is not a romance. What to expect? To be disturbed. This was one of the darkest book I have ever read. It was gory, sick and more than once it made me cringe. Everyone in this book is fu*ked-up, crazy, sick, you name it. And the worst part is that I really enjoyed this little ‘gem’. Now, it goes without saying this book is not for everyone. Not even for [...]

    3. 4 'Almost too dark for me'StarsOh dear. This is one of those books, I have no idea how to rate. I wouldn't say I enjoyed this one, at all. It was not an easy read, but I have to give the author praise for this original, well-written story line. I also may be a bit scared of her. "This is as close to hell as you can get without dying."The Goodbye Man, tells the story of 3 people, and it's probably one of the darkest, nausea-inducing reads I've ever read.CaesarIf you are on these streets, you are [...]

    5. 4.25 Hate/Love Emotional ReadSooooI wasn't going to read this book but my buddies Jahy and Carla raved about how good this book was but it wasn't until I read Jennifer's review that I knew I had to give it a shot.Normally I can stomach some really sick shit, but this bookit this book made me cringe so many times in the beginning that at one point, I really thought I would have to shelf it.

    7. I was first introduced to MP's writing in the Monster series, which I freaking enjoyed. Talk about brutal, uninhibited and grotesque writing. Absolutely superb dramatization of such a story line. So when I saw The Goodbye Man, pop up on , with the added bonus of a second author's input. I was like ' hell freaking yeah' this can only blow me out of the park. So Ms. AG, I may never have read any of your previous books, but you just got a #1 fan out of me.The Goodbye Man is a unique story, that enc [...]

    8. 5 Goodbye Stars! "Readers, please note that this tale has graphic depiction of abuse including but not limited to; rape, physical torture, emotional abuse, murder, strong language, sexual degradation and humiliation, unconventional sexual practices, and detailed descriptions of several mental disorders." If you decide to ride this ride, read the warning first. You have to be a certain kinda twisted to fully appreciate this story. Cover your eyes and look through your fingers, you know you want t [...]

But, dreams would soon turn into nightmares and darkness would be the only way she lived.

    10. Read on 7th AugReview updated 9th AUGIt's been 2 days and I can't wipe this off from my mindtherefore I decided to add a star to my rate. This is SO NOT the usual dark read.It is MUCH much more darker than my friends and I normally read.LikeTaboo is taboo right? There is no such thing as extremely taboo, I thinkStill, I want to say that this is extremely taboo. I am not talking about the usual step brother forbidden story. BTW, this is the gif on my mind for the step brother's stories we are use [...]

    11. The Goodbye Man by A Giannocarro & Mary E Palmerin4 stars!!“This place is as close to hell as you can get without dying.”When someone dares you to read a book you just have to…I mean I am no chicken when it comes to reading. I have certain genres that I just cannot read because they bore me to tears but dark is not one of them. There is something about reading a book that takes you out of your comfort zone, you get all those new sensations of dread, queasiness and that OMG does that re [...]

    12. DNF at 42%.I'm not giving this a rating because I didn't finish it, but if I were going to then it would get 1 star. Why?Because it is a bunch of fucked up, disgusting shit.Reviewers keep stating to "read the warning" and that if you can't handle those types of things then don't read it. Really? Okay, fair enough. The issue I have is that the warning does not list what all this book encompasses. It says there are brutal and bloody acts, physical and emotional abuse, and graphic sex of both the c [...]

    13. Wow ~ The Goodbye Man will totally blow your mind and twist you up, dark does not even cover this book, take notice of the warnings and do not read if you feel this is not the book for you !!! I hate to read bad reviews that comment people could not even finish the book because this book delivers what it says it would. Caesar ~ A man who likes the peace & quiet he believes he saves those who live in hell by giving them their Goodbye's.Mateo lives in a whole different world created by what he [...]

    14. 2.5 Dark, Sick and Disgusting StarsI love dark books and this one started out with a bang. I was actually impressed that two authors took a chance and wrote about some of the horrific things that people will do to others in order to gain financial profit. By the time I got halfway through the book I felt there was a lot of repetition.Lettie; "Others are created for love. Me, I was made for hate. Until I understand what it all means, I can only survive. Surviving is all I have been doing since I [...]

    15. 3 DARK DARK DARK STARS Okay, so this one has been labelled "the darkest book out there". OF COURSE I HAD TO READ IT. Is it the darkest book I've ever read? Easily, yes. Whatever trigger you may have, it freaking pushes it. Physical and emotional abuse, necrophilia, relationship that is more than forbidden, and more and more and more.The first 50% of the book was AMAZING.And ever since something certain happened went downhill and kind of dragged. The authors did this thing I really hate where the [...]

    16. Full review. Below. """Ok I can't put my words together to make coherent sentences at the mo. I need time to recover before I can put my thoughts toward a review. Please please read and listen to the disclaimersis book is not for the fain hearted. This being said it is an amazing tale. I need book two."""Review part two.This will not be a full long-winded blog review, I for one hate them. I like to be able to read the story for myself and have the full effect without already knowing what will ha [...]

    17. ☆☆READ THE DISCLAIMER☆☆I'm not kidding. Read the disclaimer, twice.Dirty. Raw. Gritty. Emotional. This story will make you question everything you were taught when it comes to right or wrong.I must be a sick individual for loving something so horrendously disgusting. Your boundaries are going to be pushed, thrown to the side. Do not be ashamed if you have to walk away and come back.There are not many things that turn my stomach and keep me intrigued at the same time, this book did. Just [...]

    18. Usually, the more dark and disturbing a book is, the more likely it is that I'm going to love it. What can I say, I love a good dark read! Unfortunately, this book had troves of depraved content and yet it fell flat for me anyway. I just never felt a connection with any of the characters, which is crucial to my enjoyment of a story. It probably didn't help that the story was told from multiple POVs, with timelines overlapping. Usually, I don't mind having multiple viewpoints, but this time aroun [...]

    19. This book has me thinking what kinda warped mind I've got as I literally inhaled this book in one sitting Maybe with a few little breathers to grab some alcohol lol As soon as I read the warning I couldn't resist reading it. However it didn't prepare me for the depths of darkness these two authors would take me to. On several occasions while reading this I couldn't believe what I was reading. I couldn't believe how much I wanted to devour this warped intense dark read. Does that make me warped?? [...]

    20. Ok so several kitten videos later I have come up with some words.I shouldn’t love this story.It’s disturbing and wrong. It has me questioning everything, including everyone.I have never read a more disturbing story.I have never loved a story more.If there was ever an author that I would want to tell a story like this it is these two women.Mary and Ashleigh have told a tale that should not be told.But they did. And they did it with no holds bar. It was all put out there. Everything.And they d [...]

    21. First let me say, READ THE WARNING! Its there for a reason! Its not a fairytale. Its dark and gritty and taboo isnt a strong enough word for it. It is also quite possibly the greatest book ive ever read! It is not for the faint of heart in any way, shape or form.Svetlana (Lettie) is a young broken girl whos been through more horror than any living thing should ever have to endure. She meets Caesar and Mateo, who individually have issues that will make u question your very existence all while hoo [...]

    22. I don't know how to review this without sounding completely jaded. It probably contained damn near every taboo known to man. Some of them were even gag worthy, and the warning doesn't even begin to prepare you. At first, though the content was difficult at times, I was engrossed in the story simply because I had never read the like. A new and interesting plot line, it sucked me in and kept me turning the pages, despite cringing at the content. The scenes are discussed from all POV's, and this is [...]

    23. First few chaptersThis happensSome of this…Kept on reading…. Thoughts racing through my mindMy reaction to a lot of thingsAfter finishing the book…Yes I enjoyed it! Is very dark soWARNING ~*~ Not for the faint hearted~*~

    24. I really wish sometimes that there was an option for more than 5 stars, because in this situation, The Goodbye Man needs more than 5.I have been sitting on this review for a couple of days because I have been trying to get my thoughts together in order to give justice to the book without giving any of its secrets away.Let me start by saying this: WARNING!!!!! If you do NOT like dark, crazy, twisted, what the hell did I just read, where did the author come up with that because I think she may bel [...]

    25. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. Title: The Goodbye Man (Red Market #1)Author: Mary E. Palmerin & A. GiannoccaroCategory: DarkPOV: Multiple POVsCharacters: 4Plot: 5HEA: Are you kidding?Oh MY GOD. WHAT IN GOD'S NAME DID I READ??? AND WHY AM I STILL THINKING ABOUT IT???

A young woman living on the street [...]

    26. I want to preface this by saying I only have one hard limit child abuse or death which really this book had none of. What it did have was graphic violence, rape, homosexuality, death, incest, and necrophilia. This was labeled as a dark read, not a dark romance and it delivered. My rating of two stars has nothing to do with the content of this book. There were several glaring problems with this book that left me struggling to finish.The first quarter of this book was thrilling! It was dark litera [...]

    27. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.This book will make you question everything you've ever thought you knew about what was right and wrong, what makes a person good or bad, and exactly is good or evil. Keep in mind everything I say here could be totally the opposite of what the writer intended. Because I honestly don't know what I was supposed to take away from it. I can only tell you my feelings, while staying vague enough that I don't give away any of the plot. This is definite [...]
