★Release Blitz w/Review ★ The Ritual by Shantel Tessier★

I will protect and own her.

The Ritual, an all-new dark college romance by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!


The Chosen One I vow. You vow. We vow. Barrington University is home of the Lords, a secret society that requires their blood in payment. They are above all—the most powerful men in the world. They devote their lives to violence in exchange for power. And during their senior year, they are offered a chosen one. People think growing up with money is freeing, but I promise you, it’s not. My entire life has been planned out for me. I never got the chance to do what I wanted until Ryat Alexander Archer came along and gave me an option for a better life. He offered me what no one else ever had—freedom. I chose to be his. He made me believe that anyway, but it was just another lie. A way that the Lords manipulate you into doing what they want. After being sucked into the dark, twisted world of the Lords, I embraced my new role and allowed Ryat to parade me around like the trophy I was to him. But like all things, what started out as a game soon became a fight for survival. And the only way out was death.

★★★Jeanette’s Review★★★

The RitualThe Ritual by Shantel Tessier My rating: 5 of 5 stars Nothing could have prepared me for this dark, dirty, and twisted read. I loved it. This is an author that I just know that whenever a new book comes out I’m reading no questions asked. I wasn’t prepared for this one though because it was different than I’m used to from her, but it was freaking great!!! So many twist and turns that kept me turning those pages and pushed me past my boundaries at time. I will warn you though that there may be triggers for some so use caution when going into this one. But if you can handle triggers and love dark reads, this is a read that you do not want to miss. Rayt and Blakely’s journey had so many twist and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. In the end I was in love with the whole book and these two characters. It’s a must read of this year. Happy Reading Everyone!!! View all my reviews
