Roman by Kimber Dawn

This is the Blog Tour for:

Roman is a man of little words and lesser morals. He's a man who accepted his demons long before the average person even realized they had any. Roman has never felt emotions like guilt, shame, or remorse. Roman has also never felt love, sympathy, or compassion. 
Jaded for reasons unknown with more money at his disposal than he knows what to do with, Roman's walk to the dark side began long before his first kill.
He will taunt you, he will make you hope and watch in amusement as you fall for him, believing you're the one who can save his soul. Believing you're the one who can get through because the other twelve failed, you'll know to the marrow of your bones how lucky being number thirteen really is… 
How do I know all of this? Because, my name is Heather Mackenzie and I've been number thirteen for a lot longer than I ever intended to be.



FIVE SAVAGELY VIOLENT STARS!!!!  Just take my word for it.  If you love dark books such as Joseph Fallen, Topping from Below, Decimation of Mae, (Oh yes, those big dogs) then you need to read ROMAN!!  If you liked the movie American Psycho, then you'll very much enjoy ROMAN!  Bear with me while I ramble...I'm writing this review straight from finishing the last word.  My heart rate is racing, my throat's all tight and constricted and I feel like my stomach is on the floor!!  Did I like it?? No.....I LOVED IT!  Every gut-wrenching vicious moment.  Roman is a complete savage!!!  Think Anthony Rawlings x1000!  From page 1 and repeatedly throughout I was warned by Roman's voice that he was the devil and this book wasn't going to be about his redemption.  But damn me if I still didn't hold onto hope!!  He owns up to his demented ways without any regrets or explanations.  Mac, aka Heather, makes no excuses for her actions and reactions as well.  It's as if she knows exactly how the reader is perceiving and judging her and she tries to justify those actions not only for the reader, but for her own sanity as well.  Cleverly written with direct communication to the reader.  (I can't explain it, but you'll understand where I coming from.)  I immediately felt a connection.  Are there unanswered questions....YES.  Does it end in a cliffy....OH YEAH!  Should you know this based on "Book 1" clearly written after the title...YES!  AWESOMELY EXCITING, GROTESQUE, SHOCKING and RIVETING!!  Roman will have you BEGGING for more!!!!!  Fantastic job, Kimber S. Dawn! You've permanently planted yourself into my dark heart.


I couldn't put this book down.  If you love a dark read, this is it, from beginning to end and everywhere in between. Kimber, you fucking nailed it. 

"Every sin I commit, each life I end, every soul I purchased to watch on gratifying amusement as it fades put. I have done with whole and complete intentions...of watching my sins and transgressions affect and alter the life of others" 

In the fourth paragraph, Roman is talking about how he raped the girl he took to prom.  In the fifth paragraph, he is talking about how he killed her and then he proceeds to say he was attempting to make the experience memorable. woah...let me get a cup of coffee, I'm pulling an all nighter. 
My heart sank when Heather introduced herself to Roman.  I thought "You stupid stupid girl, what are you doing? " she knew what she was doing and she let you know it. 

"I wonder if she realized her little rant, "I'll plow down these gates with my car!" is what caused me to open the gate not only to my home but also to the gates of hell." 

I can't wait for the next book, hopefully it answers some questions.

Who is Kimber?
Shit, sometimes even I don't know. However if I had to type up an author bio (which, son of a bitch, I do) this is how it would read. BTW, caught a lot of shit for this author bio. Really don't give a fuck though, because I was asked to type up a bio. And if I can only say one thing for certain about myself, it's this: I'm real, I don't back down from what I believe, I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. I don't bite my tongue and I never try to hide the ugly parts of who I am... You either love me or hate me, but if you love me... I'll always be loyal, no fucking matter what ;)
I can be called a billon different things—daughter, mother, labor unit nurse, queen bitch, best friend, a lover, and a fighter. I've recently gone through some shit in my life I would have never believed possible, much less believed I would survive and come out conquering feats of which aren't usually met by a small town southern girl. Either fucking way, I came out on top and stronger than before, and though I've been through hell and back, I'm still just lil ole me... a book blogger, book pimp, and a book whore. My two indulgences remain to be my Jack’s in life…Jack Daniel’s and Blackjack. My biggest dream, the day I'll acknowledge that I've succeeded in life and can I die a happy woman, is the day I get to go two stark-naked hour-round sexual bouts with Jason Statham. *Sighs* 
I was born and raised in Louisiana… and No, I do NOT live in a bayou, I actually see the beaches on the gulf coast more than I see a bayou, lol. I started writing poems and short stories very early in my life. You know, for the Michael's and Leo's and Nick's in my life. I've been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 Shades of Grey craze brought to life my inner smut whore and I commenced to read anything and everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn't enough anymore and I noticed that so many of the authors of my favorite indie authors and their books weren't getting the exposure their work deserved, I turned it into a mission, starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one. I then wrote my reviews for my blog and didn't hold back in writing them (Hell yeah those motherfuckers a profanity laden). I've never done a single thing in my life halfway. I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina Taylor of Bad & Dirty Books, I was ready to finally take the plunge and see if I could write a book that was worth a damn. 
I'm a Southern girl to my core, a self-proclaimed smut whore, and I keep hearing that I’m an author, but honestly… I don’t believe the rumors. I don’t feel like a kickass bitch spittin’ out lyrics, or stories, like a motherfuckin’ rockstar. 
Tattooed across my ribs are the words I have always lived by: 'Aut viam inveniam aut faciam tibi.' Latin for: If I cannot find a way, I will make my own.
If you want to contact me, give me a shout out at 3am because my story just decimated your work day potential, or hell if you want to stalk me (I’ve met some of my BFF’s that way, don’t judge a stalker, they are awesome, fun, kickass bitches) follow me on these links:
