Ours would come with a wheelchair and bus pass It would be useful to learn a few resuscitation techniues a good bit of slap’n tickle and a cheeky bit of CPR very sexyTara had a sweet way of talking naughty whilst making it sound as if she were discussing pruning petuniasShe was hardly WAG material being over thirty like GAG material ‘grandmothers and girlfriends’ and to think she’d grown up wanting to be a nun – as a girl she’d loved their outfits particularly the long blue dresses with the white veils She could do the ‘doing good’ bit easily enough; it was the ‘being good’ bit where she failedThe hovering Enzo stared at her Maybe he should consider becoming gay You learned so much about women working in the restaurant businessMy ReviewIt always worries me when I fall deeper and deeper into a creepy and sinister plot while vastly enjoying the experience I fear there may be something wrong with me to become so enthralled and transfixed on such a twisted and disturbing story But in my defense this superbly penned stunner uickly mesmerized me and held me in thrall with razor sharp and well crafted writing The storylines were ingenious and compelling cleverly insightful and often witty and amusing I had a hard time putting my Kindle down any longer than necessary for those pesky chores such as sleeping and seeking sustenance The characters were fascinating original complex and enticing yet deeply flawed some than others The taut narrative was skillfully written in the third person omniscient POV of practically everyone including taxi drivers waiters and receptionists; with freuent dashes of clever humor intense sensual scenes and a mesmerizing and suspense filled build up to the gruesomely plotted climax But I also want to mention there were also haunting dark and grisly descriptions of abuse and violence It was highly evocative and often elicited a powerful response whether empathic or severely creepy But did you notice this was Book #1? While the cliffhanger wasn’t vile and heinous the story is not complete damn it but it did reach a comfortable stopping point To end on a positive note I also picked up some new vocabulary words several of which would never pass the censors but I believe sloaney will make it which is apparently a young party animal from a posh and wealthy family with money than sense Hmm I would have aspired to being a sloaney young adult in my day Tara Helen and Josie have been close friends for many years Every Friday was reserved as a girls day lunch where they got together and discussed men or there lack of a man in their life at the moment Their bond is tight and they are like sisters than friends Only there are secrets being kept and a stalker who has been following them around town intent on making them payTara is one of my favorites out of the group She is currently single and has been for the past year I wouldn’t say she is promiscuous but she does enjoy sex when in a relationship Tara seems the “family” oriented in the group in search of a long lasting relationship Helen on the other hand is rich and beautiful but has a low self esteem She hates herself and finds fault with the way she looks She sleeps around with every and any man she finds as that is the only way she feels loved and wanted Josie the third member of this girl group seems sweet and innocent but she has a side that no one knows about not even her closest friendsDavid has a connection to the women and an obsession with Tara What happens when there is a new man in Tara’s life? Could that obsession turn deadly for Tara and her friends?THE PENANCE LIST the first book in the David Trilogy is one doozy of a read Like what did I stumble into? I thought I was going to get an easy psychological thriller instead I read some brilliantly crafted dark and devious mind bender of a story Author SC Cunningham has penned a delicious and often times horrifying story where each character intertwines leading up to an explosive grand finaleThe characters in the story were each written exceptionally well SC Cunningham really took the time to make each character come to life with a backstory so you really get invested in their lives I have to say there were characters that I loved and ones I hated to love The story in itself was dark but there were many laugh out loud moments that gave a much needed break from the evil lurking through its pages This is a no holds barred story The sex is plentiful – guyguy girlgirlcheatingyou name it it’s probably here This book makes erotica look tame I loved every minute of it and can’t wait to start the second book in the series This is the first book I read of S C Cunningham and it's the first in her David Trilogy I must say that when I started reading the book I didn't know what to expect I just knew it would be different from anything I had ever read And I was rightAs we start reading you are immediately falling down on this rabbit hole and you won't wake up in Wonderland S C Cunningham wrote the book in such a peculiar matter that I couldn't help myself but loving how dark and mysterious the story was starting to be and how 'no limits' it was And I was starting to expect anything to happenThe flow of the book was great and it never let go of my attention As we go deeper and deeper into this crazy and sinister plot we get to know the characters They all are complex and flawed character which gives the book an even real feel to it With intense sensual scenes suspense and gruesome moments and the thriller that started to run through my body as I was reading I can almost guarantee that you will go on an unexpected journey through this psychological thrillerBrilliantly crafted visual and devious The Penance List will get you to experience the story as if you were a part of it Each characters' interactions leads to actions that makes the reader anxious for every page an in the end the grand finale makes you want to grab the next book as fast as you keepI could talk about every character and let you all know my thoughts but I feel like you guys will get as invested in their lives as I was and you should decided for yourselves without my words running around in your mind because I can assure you you will already have many thoughts to keep you occupiedI enjoyed every thing minute while reading this book and I couldn't seem to stop reading at night despite all the darkness of the book And I absolutely recommend it if you guys are willing to adventure into this dangerous and unusual Thriller and Erotica book The Penance ListHoly cow This book is intense It is everything that the synopsis promises and It's a psychological thriller with a dose of romance and a pinch of suspense SC Cunningham expertly weaves a tale that kept me on the edge of my seat and up at nightThe tale follows David as he stalks his prey and then flashes to his childhood where the reader gets glimpses into why he is what he is He is a character that is so dark and dangerous and yet I felt sorry for himThen we get to meet Tara The lovely vivacious Tara She is unwittingly the target of David's obsession I enjoyed her character She made me laugh out loud several timesThere was also a wonderful cast of secondary characters the hot Franco loyal Micheal Irish Seb and the entertaining Anton I loved them all They had great chemistry and fleshed out the storyThe plot was wonderful It was meticulously crafted to tie all the different story lines together to have one major climax I have to say the prologue is very intense The story also has uite a bit of romance It seems like everyone is getting some The scenes are done well I would recommend reading them in the uiet of a bedroom Not in a busy coffee shop Oh la laDavid's character is seriously messed up There is rape murder bondage and just overall creepy stuff happening I definitely did not want to be all alone after reading thisI enjoyed SC Cunningham's work in The Penance List It was everything promised and I received this ARC from the author This is my honest opinion READER REVIEWS'Shocking an eye opener

appeal and no writer's ever done that for me before I love the characters they involve you straight away and the plot keeps you hooked right to the end what end? I'm going to read the next two parts of the trilogy as soon as I can get hold of them You're a very brave lady Ms Cunningham and I love what you've done you've somehow given us all the things we want to read about in one It makes you shiver it makes you laugh out loud it intrigues you it arouses you you don't feel guilty lapping up the horror because the characters in one way or another seem to deserve it or get their revenge for it'Jeni I 5 stars USA'Bravo Cunningham artfully weaves a compelling tapestry of murder mayhem and Martinis in her latest work ''The Penance List Delicious and salacious this novel offers a new twist on the modern romance and the classic psychological thriller It is a riveting tale filled with colorful characters suspenseful seuences and titillating twists A fabulous read for those who dare'Sharon Gutierrez GrgichLA USA'Naughty nice and nasty I loved it I was lucky enough to meet the author She's utterly gorgeous and charming with sparkly eyes and a giggle that fills the room Who'd have known she could write about such dark and sinister people? I was warned that the opening chapter is pretty horrifying but it does prepare you for some of the horrors to come at least Set in London there are characters that we can all recognise some of whom I fell in love with Other characters are less likeable but only because they'd been written well An added bonus is that the characters are developed well throughout the book by the author I changed my opinion of one or two but the writing allowed this to feel natural and didn't jar as it has in some other books I've read Gay or straight the characters are sexy and their liaisons completely believable and add to the plot And the twist at the end took me completely by surprise Perhaps not for the fainthearted but so if you dare pick up a copy or download it and ENJOY xx' Adrian F Review 5 StarsLondon UK'The Penance List is a compelling novel Even though the read is 470 pages I found myself snatching it up every chance I could wanting to see what David would do next The book is dark naughtysometimes downright nasty Cunningham's first novel will hold your attention to the very end'Susan Whitfield Review USA'A thoroughly entertaining debut The Penance List is a mind bending instant classic Be on the lookout for from this immensely talented rising literary star'Josee Morgan USA'A really good read preferably in daylight One minute horrified the next laughing out loud I finished the book covered in goose bumps' Review UK'Have to say the book is fabulous I'm pretending it's not my cup of tea as supposedly a girlie read but genuinely brilliant'Richard Monte Carlo Monaco'God I loved your book It was intense great narration and wonderful dialogue'Authonomy Author Review Harper Collins‘I bought this book yesterday and have just finished it this morning I could not put it down and have been the most anti social person since picking it up Siobhan if you carry on writing books like this I will not have any friends left It was BRILLIANT fantastic stuff and can't wait for book two to see what Helen and David get up to poor Tara Well done’Samantha AndersonLondon UK'This reminds me a little of American Psycho only so very much better You are a talented writer and I was compelled to keep reading and now I'm frustrated because I WANT MORE I'd not only buy this but I'd buy it for friends BACKED 100%'Liz Authonomy Author Harper Collins My Review The Penance List by SC CunninghamOh my goodness The Penance List is so fast paced I fell off the bed reading it I have to admit it is not my usual cup of tea and I don't really like blood and guts But this was well written and had tempo so you don't dwell on the gore bits The GoodGreat style lots of action and intrigue What a change from romance and I honestly do think that I could fall in love with this genre I am glad I took a chance on it The BadSomethings put me off my dinner but I am pretty sure that is the genre and the author wanted thatThe UglyThere was so much in this book; I realized I am a little old mumsy type Can often be confused with an old fart But that doesn't mean the book was ugly I don't know how but I enjoyed itA great read 5 Stars Dare I say I want ? Definitely very dark and vulgar That part didn't really bother me Found it to be a little too odd and out there at times All in all it was ok twist at the end was good See eclectic reviews on my blog at He stared down at her studying her reaction as if a rat in a science lab With cold calm knowing he gave a gentle nod of his head and smiled She’d guessed right Her mind raced the realization of what he had in mind pumped sobering adrenaline through her bodyTara loves her job in advertising and is in a bit of a dry spell in her love life  She is the one who organizes the photo shoots not the one in the photos but the very private and sexy Italian football star Franco Rossellini has other ideas  Her brief clandestine and very hot tutorial teaching Franco how to relax in front of the camera has convinced him that he wants Tara in the photo shoot with him instead of the highly paid model  Little did they know this would carry dangerous and painful conseuences for them bothDavid has loved her forever  She was the only one who was kind to him when he needed it most but when he professed his love in a letter so many years ago she turned him down and broke his already battered heart  The time has come  She must pay like the restIn the first of the David Trilogy Cunningham's characters are gradually developed by transitioning between past and present  I'm not usually a fan of this type of storytelling but it worked in this instance  The inner turmoil in the characters especially the protagonist is intense and keeps the reader engaged and rushing to read the next chapter  This is a riveting psychological thriller that lures you in slowly and stuns you at the end  Book 2 here I come  Be warned that this book contains graphic and disturbing scenes Wow I did not expect that ending This one comes with a warning – a steamy suspense ridden psychological thriller – think Silence of the Lambs meets 50 Shades and hold on tight S C Cunningham writes with a skilled mix of fueled tension dark humour and pulsating sex scenes Grab a glass of wine close the bedroom door and read alone This is from the blog tour material I received I have to agree with every word This story had me cringing getting excited and getting upset while reading it David Howard a young boy who is sent to boarding school and is too pretty for his own good He has had a lot of bad things happen to him and to cope he has turned to the dark side His love for his sister Helen's best friend Tara is thrown back at him by Tara after she receives a letter confessing his loveTara Warr is a bit older and does not carry the same feelings for David as he carries for her She feels that they are both too young to know what love is and in her reply letter to David she tells him that she is not the woman for him Unfortunately this is just another thing to push David over the edge I enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to the next in the series This was my first read of S C Cunningham's books but I look forward to reading I loved the characters in this story Seb Franco Michael and Anton were great and fun to read Helen is a little offJosie I am unsure of stillGreat job I give this book 45 stars and look forward to reading of the trilogy
