My Review:  Church by Stylo FantomeChurch by Stylo Fantôme
Publication Date: July 20, 2018
Genres: Dark, Romance, Taboo


A broken girl.
An unusual boy.
A beautiful face that hides a dark secret and an ugly past.
Sealed lips which hide wicked words and dangerous thoughts.
She would kill for him to love her.
He just wants to kill.
Maybe, if Emma Hartley prays hard enough, Church Logan can make both their wishes come true.
Fuse, meet match.

My Review

Church by Author Stylo Fantôme is dark romance with a touch of taboo.

“…they call me Church because yes, I should be worshiped.”

You know that scratching-scraping sound that old vinyl records make if the needle slides across them? That sound continually carved through me while reading Church. This novel completely electrified my brain. It made me think, piece together an ever-changing, bizarre puzzle. It was twisted and dark, unpredictable. It scared the crap out of me. Not because it was horror, but because it was acutely foreboding. I was pretty much frightened to death when thinking of the perfect storm that Emma and Church could create together.

“He’s magic. He’s the devil. He’s inside me now, in my blood, in my brain…He’s it. He’s my moment that I’ve been waiting for. He’s the greatness I’ve been missing.”

To know the personalities of Emma and Church was to be in a constant state of anxiety and alertness. The broken girl who was heart sick and thought she might have a tiny bit of cray-cray met the quiet and sullen man who was, without a doubt, head sick. The mysterious and peculiar Church. They say it’s always the quiet ones. Whoever “they” are, they’re correct. Church made me have goosebumps, and I can’t say they were always the warm fuzzy feels. My heart broke for Emma. She wanted love, wanted to belong. But, the more I got to know her, the more I realized I didn’t. Add into this mix a bit of a whore-turned-classy-ish mom, and a dad, who I am telling you is still very questionable to me, and now we have the perfect family set up. And the perfect way to screw away our minds.

“He stripped down her soul to its ugliest parts, then made it dance for him.”

Author Stylo Fantôme threw out the rule book when she wrote Church. It’s unlike any of her other novels, but exactly what we’ve come to expect from her writing. Sharp. Pointed. Aimed straight at our dark hearts.

“A force of nature. We will tear through this life and we will leave destruction and we will make people remember us.”

About Stylo Fantôme

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.


I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.


Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
