On the Mona Bendarova Adventures

woman against star field

Do you like the genre of science fiction? I am not a fan yet if a story has character development, conflict and some resolution, I am interested. That is what I have found reading Richard Verry’s ‘Mona Bendarova Adventures’.

IMG_20160617_111433I guess I have to wait for the third book in the series, ’ Lucky Bitch’, hoping there is some resolution for the main character, Mona. I am hoping the author will introduce new characters and more conflict. I truly enjoyed his first two books where I met and immersed myself  into the characters he introduced. All you had to do was mention a character name and I could tell you how the character relates to the story. That is a credit to the author, Mr. Verry, who vividly created the characters and the story.

In the midst of these stories, Mr. Verry describes a future world where his characters come alive and live. Again, I can understand his vision knowing I have been drawn in by the characters and the world they occupy. Like ‘Star Wars’ and most recently, ‘Independence Day’, we need to see these types of movies soon after they are released. I am okay with it since I can identify with the characters even if the setting is in the future.

So for those that love character development no matter what genre it is in, take a leap of faith in reading ‘Mona Bendarova Adventures’ and enjoy the world that the author created. I can affirm to you that you will embrace these characters and the books. Start with a ‘Taste of Honey’ and follow it up with ‘Broken Steele’. ‘Lucky Bitch’ will soon follow.

I honestly can tell you that I am looking forward to reading it.

Rest assured, I’m still with you.

Just a quick note to let you know, I’m still here. I’m recovering nicely. As I am able, I am working on a five-part post that I hope to publish next week.

In this five-part post, I will be exploring the culture that Mona Bendarova lives in. For most of you, you know that Mona is the lead character in my series of novels called ‘The Mona Bendarova Adventures.

Taste Of HoneyIn the first two books, ‘The Taste of Honey‘ and ‘Broken Steele‘, I tell a story of a woman in another time and culture. She lives in a world very different from the one we live in today. Yet, it is plausible on so many levels. The third book in the series, ‘Lucky Bitch‘, continues to explore this culture, and I hopefully will have it out this fall. Be sure to look for it.

When you read the stories, you’ll wonder, could the world she lives in, really happen?

Check it out and let me know what you think.

In the meantime, dinner’s on the table. Time to eat.

Broken-Steele

Hello friends and fans. Yesterday afternoon I got a pleasant surprise. Someone bought a copy of my book, ‘Broken Steele‘ from Smashwords. Thank you.

Book-2D-loopHowever, that one little revelation got me poking around all of my sales outlets. To my surprise, over the past three months, unbeknownst to me, hundreds of copies of all of my books have been downloaded from various sites. Many are free copies of my book ‘Her Client’ but many of you out there bought your own copies of my other books from various sources. I noted sales on iBooks for the Apple platform, B&N for the Nook platform and even Kobo for who knows what eBook reader.

I’m ecstatic.

Thanks to all who have purchased and downloaded one of my books. I hope you enjoy them. Please, I would be interested in a review or two from you. Of course sales are the best review so I must be doing something right.

Read what others have said about my books. Many are summarized right here. Feel free to read them and decide for yourself. Thank you for giving me a slice of your valuable time. I appreciate it.

5/5

Mr. Verry’s writing seems to capture the subject of the Sex Trafficking trade and how this “Trade” is very likely to happen and keep hidden for years and years. He focuses on a few select characters in his book and tells their story.

I have finished “Undercurrents” and enjoyed every word! I would rate it 5 stars. Naturally it keeps your interest. Avril’s story is very interesting and in the last couple of chapters I get the sense that she is beginning to enjoy being with “Sir” and likes participating in the torture. She has been with him for a few years now is “trying to make the best of it” as she has said, but I can’t help but wonder if she is resigning herself to her fate. Don’t know if I want her to be a member of the Consortium or not!

I love wondering about the different ways this story can go – I’m looking so forward to seeing where Heather and her father will end up. And what a surprise with Shelby! Katie’s story can also go down so many different roads.

Please keep your readers abreast of the next book; you left so many hints in Undercurrents as to what can happen in the future of The Consortium, Avril, Katie, Heather, etc. Looking forward to more from you. I think of all different avenues you can go to – can’t wait!!

Love your writing, Mr. Verry and wish you great success in future projects!

5/5

I know it says this is a stand alone but I do hope there is a sequel. This book was a very disturbing read that played havoc with my emotions.

I found myself hating all the members of the Consortium. It definitely takes you to some dark places and messes with your mind. Somehow I was left with the hope that Avril would take revenge on The Consortium at the end but at the same time it was left unclear, leaving me with the feeling that she was content with her situation as it turned out.

Well worth the read but not for the faint of heart.

Richard Verry is an excellent writer. Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. I don’t typically read sci-fi but this author keeps you reading from one steamy chapter to the next. I like reading a book where I can follow the storyline easily and this is one of those books. Perhaps another Stephen King in the making?

As dark as it was, it was trilling, the one thing that I love was the twist of her destiny.

Overpowering

Once you start to read this overpowering book, you can’t put it down. It’s debatable if it is out of curiosity of what is going to happen next, or fear of what will happen. Thinking that this could really be going on in real life is frightening.

Avril’s strength leads her through an unbelievable journey of horrific events. Sir is a cruel sadist, calculating, brutal and very charming. It is a hard read at several times, but I loved every word of it. A sequel is definitely needed.

The Trafficking Consortium

Nice Read

~Amazon Customer

5/5

At first I wasn’t sure if I could continue to finish this book. It seemed so barbaric. Some parts left me speechless and others were soft and tender. However, by the end I was crying. But, was it or me and how sad I felt, or for Honey in her greatest accomplishment?

~GS

5/5

This book was very exciting and different in the nature of dom/sub. No spoilers but I couldn’t put this book down.

Pamela Hubert

I read [both] “The Trafficking Consortium,” and I was glued to it. I went on to “Perfect Prey.” Wow!

When I got to the chapter of Rachel and the transplant, I could not go on; that was too much for me and I put the book away. I kept thinking about the character, Avril though. I had to find out about her so I picked the book up again.

In the end, in the Author’s notes, you mention Avril and her story. Will there be another book? I would so love to know what her destiny is – does she get the opportunity to destroy the Consortium; leave “Sir” and end this reign of torment and killing? I also was curious about the characters of Robert and Lara —  whatever happened to them?

Thank You!

Carolyn

A must read. Sit back and enjoy the roller coaster ride and ask yourself the question, “Do you really know him?”

You did it again Richard. I thought the trilogy was great and here you go with another interesting read. This could happen to anyone. Everyone should read this book. Looking forward to reading all of yours. Thank you.

When I typed in BDSM Auction in Amazon I was sure I would find a book that started of well and then deteriorated. What a pleasant surprise The Trafficking Consortium turned out to be! I have totally neglected the things I should have done today because I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to read Perfect Prey when will it be available? Thank you for delivering an excellent read from cover to cover.

~Joanna Copeland

Once I started reading, it was hard to put down. It picked up closely to where the 1st book left off. The introduction of new characters and their situations were believable. Which leaves you with the question, “could this happen to me or someone i know?’ I believe the answer is definitely a YES. The main characters continue on with their lifestyle. Will Avril betray Sir or submit body, mind and soul? It could go either way depending on her circumstances. We can only wait and see. I thought it was well written and i enjoyed reading it. I’m hoping for another book to continue the journey

~G.S. – Amazon Customer

As I see the news about the jogger missing, I can’t help think of Mr. Verry’s book, Perfect Prey. This is excellent writing as the writer exposes a “Consortium” that arranges for people to be taken from all over the world. What is scary is I can picture myself in this story. The scene with the girl and the snake used for the group’s entertainment is both terrifying and exhilarating. It is written so well that I couldn’t wait to see what happens next. It is a thriller that I couldn’t put down. I hope the author is working on book three of this story. I will buy it to see the conclusion of this “so true to life” thriller. What is next for Avril? I hope and like when the heroine gets revenge.

~J.M. – Amazon Customer

This book was way more than I was expecting. I didn’t have any preconceived endings because there were so many twists to the story. The story scared me, sickened me, pissed me off but I couldn’t stop reading. Great author.

~Chris

4/5

I LOVED THIS EBOOK! It held my attention from the first words to the last words!

The story had everything to keep your focus on finishing it! IF you do not have a weak stomach, and you can deal with sexual torture, then quickly buy this book.

First read books 1 & 2. I thought the first book was unbelievable, but book 2 was even better, and then book 3 was the best yet!

Way to go Richard Verry! I hope you continue the storyline with book 4!!!!

Noemi on ‘Her Client’

The book deals with human trafficking, so the sex takes place in a situation that leads to human trafficking. Not what I am into but If that is what you may like to read then you may enjoy it more.

Dagmar on ‘Her Client’

I finished the book last night. I liked it. Now I have to read the next one. I liked how, it went from her thoughts and then his thoughts. A lot of slapping, lol.

Great book. Everyone should read this.

~Miss TC

5/5

Mr. Verry has done it again! The second book in the Mona Bendarova Adventures gives readers insight into Mona’s investigatory skills as well as her rise to power within her community. The story engages the reader from the beginning. It is helpful that the author reminds us of the focus of the first book, ‘The Taste of Honey’ and how it relates to this sequel. It’s easy reading and I continue to enjoy and discover Mona’s adventures. I’m sure you will too.

~Janet M

I’ve finished reading it again today. What a thought-provoking book!! I will not give the ending away. Do read it for yourself. I can promise you that you won’t be disappointed.

5/5

This book engages you right from the opening paragraph. I liked the emotions depicted in this book and I found that the author doesn’t have to state them for the reader to capture those feelings. I really was intrigued how the author depicted the characters. He was very descriptive and the reader could easily get to know them and even identify with their actions. After reading this book, it made me thirsty for more.

~Janet M

5/5

Five Stars! Enjoyed getting to know the characters and this future world. Looking forward to Mona’s future adventures.

Intriguing and Well Written Story! Not my usual cup of tea, so this book was something of a departure for me. An interesting blend of raciness and fantasy, which fans of either should enjoy.

~Jack Sullivan

4/5

A must read! The plot is intriguing and kept me spell-bound throughout the book. I found it to be well-written & the author draws you in with not only his clever story line but also his complex characters. The more I read the more I understood the emotional turmoil the various characters were going thru. I am excited to see where this author takes us in the next adventure!

~Jean M

4/5

A very enjoyable, fun read. Very entertaining … Riveting at points … I found myself enthralled in this book and have gotten my friends and family interested in reading this book. This book is very easy to read, and the character developments is very unique and enjoyable to follow.

Indeed exciting! I just finished your “Taste of Honey”. What a delicious read!

5/5

Steamy romance novels filled my head with all sorts of allusion of what it would be like to be a sexy grown-up. That was then, and this is now. I find myself doing the same thing with Richard’s book, only I have kids playing in the background.

So I’m hiding so I can concentrate on reading! I’ve been under the comforter most nights, reading Richard Verry’s title, “The Taste of Honey” and calling out from under there saying “go ask Daddy” and returning promptly to my hot and steamy read.

I actually enjoyed Richard’s book very much, from beginning to end. His books were a bit of a stretch for my usual taste but I’m glad I delved in and had a read. Right now I’m finishing up “Broken Steele”.  Have YOU read Richard’s books yet?

~Leah Hart

This book definitely is not for everyone. It really kept my interest though in fact I could not put it down. I am looking forward to books 2 and 3 I just purchased.

I hate to keep saying this but … this series is off the hook. It also receives 5 stars like the last one. I read it in one day and I’m onto book #3.

5/5

This book was absolutely the right book to read if you want everything unimaginable to happen to a character. Had to buy part two this morning. I do not normally give a book 5 stars but, let me tell you … this book hit all the right places in my mindset of erotica.

This book really got me. From the very beginning I had the feeling something wasn’t typical … and Mr. Verry certainly came through with that as the plot develops … Read this one for yourself … very entertaining!!

Someone just purchased Broken Steele, thank you.

Broken-Steele

I just received notice that someone purchased a copy of my book ‘Broken Steele‘. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It would be fantastic if you would post a review of the book. I’ll give you a gold star should you do. This book, as well as all of my books, are available on my website, RichardVerry.com and at book retailers such as Amazon, Smashwords, iBooks, B&N and a host of ebook retailers all over the world.

Broken-Steele-advert3a-800x300

When you read this erotic, kinky, and captivating, tale, you will wonder who your friends are and can they be trusted.

For those of you who might not be aware, ‘Broken Steele‘ is the gripping sequel to ‘The Taste of Honey‘ and is the second book in the Mona Bendarova Adventures. It picks up after Honey is rescued and before she delivers her first male child. It is another mystery for Mona to solve when she is called upon to find out who brutally murdered the master of another estate in her community. Along the way, she uncovers a plot that is threatening the entire community. A community who for years has experienced peace and tranquility which is now shattered with fear, angst, and unrest.

She solves the mystery but now her own life is in great peril as many in her community are ignorant of the growing threat and simply can’t deal with the consequences. Mona’s own life is now in jeopardy as well as those who are close to her.

Good luck Mona. It appears you have a long and perilous journey ahead of you. Book three in the series, ‘Lucky Bitch’ is in the works. Be sure to look for it.

Suitable for readers 18+.
