DWDFBCover.v1

Viveca Benoir likes the crazy…she writes books that get under your skin, make you sweat and shout at your kindle. We met Julian and the sister in Matt: The Beginning and I just knew trouble was ahead. I wanted to lock Devia away for what she did to innocent people and how she absolutely was gleeful as she ruined lives.
This book was suspenseful, sexy and will make you hate this woman (and feel so bad in the process).
As with this author’s other books, the ending will leave you wondering if it’s all over or not…but nothing is ever what it seems to be and evil tends to get away with murder.
Excellent job with this fatal attraction on speed type of suspense novel.

To Murder Matt - Viveca Benoir - eBook - low res

I read Matt the beginning first, so I had his background before reading this book.
To be honest I was surprised Matt only had Four people waiting to see if he died at the hospital…
Dean, Nico, Ellen, and Veronique have all been caught up in Matt’s web for different reasons, but in the end they discover they all want him dead for one reason….
He is EVIL!
From a Loved race car driver, to a true DEVIL!
It’s fast passed and keeps you wanting to read , but be warned there are some situations that are disturbing, and not easy to read…
I really enjoyed this book and the authors writing style. Looking forward to reading more ..

Where do I start ?

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00034]
This isn’t one of my typical reads, and I took a chance after reading the warnings about being DARK and Twisted.
I actually decided to read this first, before To Murder Matt, and I’m glad I did.

It will have you messed up with emotion from heartbreak and feeling sad for Matt, to down right hating him and wanting to punch him out.
If your after a sweet read, than this isn’t the book for you.
There are situations that are difficult read and I had to step away a few times to take it all in.
But I was so drawn into the story, that I picked it up again after taking a very short break. I had to keep reading.
Can you be born with a cold heart?
Or can one only take so much pain, so many times being let down, that it’s just a matter of time until the heart doesn’t care about love anymore?

I have to say I really enjoyed the book, some parts not so much . I did follow on and read To Murder Matt, and I look forward to reading more from this Author…

Matt MTB 2
A friend and I were discussing what we were reading and I was between books even though I have a TBR list a mile long. She told me what she was reading and I asked what it was about. She told me the story was a bit dark and twisted. I replied that it sound wicked and I needed a change! You know the books are fantastic if you can’t wait to discuss them with your friend when you are both on two different time zones! So this brings me to this review. i have just completed a day and a half marathon reading Viveca Benoir’s books and I am absolutely hooked and in love with this author’s writing!!!! She has a flair for telling a story that just leaves you sitting theire with your jaw hanging open. I am still shaking my head. Viveca writes a tale that has the characters so intricately woven together it literally leaves you hanging to the end to piece the puzzles all together! I am still sitting here perplexed with how she does this!!! On the suggestion of my reading friend, I read this book first and it really made following the story easier for me. This book takes you back to the beginning of Matt’s story, starting with his birth, through his childhood, and beyond showing how he became so troubled. It showed us how he became the devil among us! Are we born with both evil and good in us? Does one prevail over the other depending upon how one is raised? How much pain and heartache can one experience before the heart turns black and unfeeling? This series is definitely not for everyone but I absolutely loved it! 5+ stars for me!!!!! The writing is extremely top notch and so creative. I need another book now!!!!!

Meet Devia


I read Dancing with DEE-VEE-AH today and was once again floored by Viveca Benoir’s writing ability! I was again so engrossed in her story telling that the rest of my world took a back seat. I am hoping for another book in this series because with the way this one ended, Viveca just threw us readers in for a little did she or didn’t she!!!! I am one of those readers who must know! I need my answers and it will drive me nuts now until I get them!! Devia wants Julian and will stop at nothing to get him, even if that means destroying anyone in his life. Julian had it all; a loving wife and two children .. until he didn’t thanks to Devia. Everytime I read the name Devia, I can’t help but think it means devious .. it doesn’t, it actually means goddess, which she believes she is!!! Julian is now on death row for murders he did not commit, his life is in ruins. The story is told with Julian reflecting on what has happened. Jullian doesn’t realize his chance encounter at an antique car museum was all part of a well planned plot by a master manipulater named Devia. If you read Matt’s books then you will remember VEE-NEE-AH, she has a small part in this book too, but I don’t want to give more away. This is a another great read filled with lots of twists, turns, and surprises. Now about that ending????? This was a five star read for me!!! I need another book!! Well done, I enjoyed this book tremendously.

To Murder Matt scores 5 stars again!!

I read To Murder Matt after Matt -The Beginning. I am extremely glad I decided to read the books in thisorder, and did so on the advice of a friend. It made following the story so much easier for me. On that note,phewwwww, what a read!!!! This is an extremely intense, and atsome times,disturrbing and graphic read. At about 83%, I had to put the book down and stop for a few minutes to catch my breath, but then I came back as I was anxious to finish this book! I think you could have made me #5 and added me to the list of people who now wanted to kill Matt. Matt went from a beloved champion race car driver and international playboy to the DEVIL! It’s official I HATE him!!!! Ellen. Dean. Veronique. Nico. Four people want Matt dead and they all have different reasons. Who killed Matt? Viveca did it again with her extraordinary writing and intricatestory telling. My husband had to pick my jaw up from the floor. Five stars!!!!! I am hooked, line, and sinker for your books!!!!

Come and get me...

Come and get me…

Again, Viveca Benoir has given us another brilliant read. 5 Stars!

BFDU‘s review

Apr 17, 15
What makes a man a monster?
A murderer?
A deviant?
A predator?
A maniac?
A psychopath?How does a young boy become any of those things?
How does he become so shut off from emotion that he considers nobody?
How does he lose his innocence?
How does he lose the ability to feel, to love?
How does he become cold and callous?

The Beginning is a novel that takes us into Matt’s life.

Julia MTBWe were introduced to Matt when we read To Murder Matt which we absolutely loved.
But in The Beginning we are taken back to Matt’s childhood and how he was ultimately moulded into the man he became.

Again Viveca Benoir has given us another brilliant read.
It’s dark, confronting, raw and again highly emotional and at times disturbing.
But we simply couldn’t put it down.

Again we cannot understand how this book is to be banned.
The content at times can be distressing and quite disturbing but why the decision was made to ban it stills leaves us dumbfounded.
And why????
There are two reasons for this…

1. Reading both To Murder Matt and
Matt -The Beginning, the author clearly explains that if at any time a reader should feel uncomfortable and unable to continue, simply put it down.
As readers we are not forced to read a novel, it’s a choice.

2. The subject matter in both novels while again at times graphic, disturbing and confronting, for us it is simply no different than picking up an autobiography with the same subject matter.

Again for us as bloggers/readers we just simply don’t understand the bureaucracy behind the decision.

To Viveca Benoir again thank you very much for giving us a heartbreaking read. Full of feeling and written with such depth we could feel the emotions throughout the pages. Congratulations on another amazing novel.

We look forward to reading more of your work and wish you all the very best.

For us a definite 5 star read.

Bloggers Down Under 5 * To Murder Matt Review

Four people.

Ellen.
Dean.
Veronique.
Nico.
Binded together.
They will be forever changed.
They will be forever damaged.

But they have one thing in common.
One goal.
One need.
One desire.

To seek revenge on the one man who has destroyed each and every one of them.

They want to murder Matt.

Matt.
A monster.
A psychopath.
A deranged maniac.
He hurts people for fun.
He seeks enjoyment from it.
He loves the power.
He will never let anyone or anything stand in his way.
He will destroy those emotionally, physically and psychologically that get in his path.
He will take and take until there is nothing left.
He will have it all.

This is their story.

A story about the lengths a man will take to get what he wants.
A story about a monster.
A story about how four people will forever be entwined.
A story about strength.
A story about survival.
A story about hope.
A story about love.

As bloggers/readers every so often we come across a novel that attracts us based purely on the controversy it causes. You see this book is being banned.

We believe as avid readers ourselves that each and every single book written should be given a fair chance. It should be given a chance to be read by fellow readers/book lovers.

To Murder Matt is definitely not for the light-hearted. It’s content is extremely raw, hard, explicit and quite graphic. And to be honest at times quite disturbing. It covers a number of disturbing topics and taboo subjects.

But as a reader we chose to read it, and we absolutely loved it. Yes it was an extremely hard read, but it was written in such detail and depth we simply couldn’t put it down.

To remove a novel we believe is taking the rights away from readers who should be given the choice to read or not to read. We are definitely firm believers that every author should be given a fair go in this industry.

To Murder Matt…..Is a read for everyone…Absolutely not, but let readers be given the choice to pick it up, not just simply remove it from sale.

To Vevica Benoir thank you so very much for giving us such an emotional, hard, raw, gritty and hard read. The subject matter at times we found highly disturbing, but again never once did we feel as though we couldn’t continue on with it.

We absolutely loved, loved it.

For us a definite 5 star read.
