    One thought on “The Flesh Cartel #9: Trials and Errors”

    1. The rage I felt earlier in this series is gone. Followed by frustration and aggravation which now frankly, is apathy at this point. How do I feel after this book?Kill 'em. KILL THEM ALL. Dougie's a joke, Mat's a misguided and naive fool, and Nicolai's a narcissistic megalomaniac. At this point, I am inclined to leave the characters where they are and not follow on with the next season.

    2. GOD DAMN YOU CLIFFHANGERS!!! Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!(Which is the sound I imagine I make as I fall over that cliff, shaking my fist at a cruel god.) (view spoiler)[Are they out? Are they not? Fuck. Of course they're not. Nikolai's not that stupid. BUT I WANT THEM TO BE OUT!(hide spoiler)]But I also want some more depravity thanks. Mmmm.avity

    3. Why does my mind go into panic mode each and every time I open up my Kindle to begin reading another episode in The Flesh Cartel Series!!!Because Heidi Belleau and Rachel Haemowitz have created two characters that are now part of the fabric of my very being… Mat and Dougie have been put through every torture, humiliation, degradation, pain, hurt and mind fuck imaginable and I have been there with them every step of the way… these boys are ingrained within my very soul!We left Mat in episode [...]

    4. What a psychologically intense instalment!A big cliffhanger at the end and I'm afraid I know where this is coming (view spoiler)[ Please, please, when does Nate finally appear on the scene??!! I need some normal, warm and strong guy!(hide spoiler)]Dougie is slipping more and more into the"good slave boy"mindset, and I'm so sad because of it but also I'm pissed because he should have been stronger! Cleverer! Looks like his whole psychological PhD background fires back at him :(And Mat? He's great [...]

    5. ~ ~ ~HEART - FUCKING - POUNDINGHow the hell did Heidi and Rachel ramp up the tension in this episode? In a series that cannot become any more intense they found a way to take me right to my edge, cross it, and then completely exhaust me with a racing pulse, fear and hope. Always that damn bit of hope.“And more than anything, you need to learn to let go of all your silly, stupid morality, all the trappings and judgments and pointless rules of your old life.”THE STORYThis episode starts out wi [...]

    6. I do no know if I'm ready for it, and I probably wouldn't be starting it now if it was not for my buddy L!I stopped reading this series months ago, after finishing book no. 8, that for me, was the hardest of them all.I needed a break to breathe because it really got to me!I also wanted to wait for the all series to be out, in order for me to not get stuck in the dark without an end within reach.I pre ordered the all series, and now that it's out I'm taking a deep breath and diving in!Wish me luc [...]

    7. Mat is back in this episode fighting Nikolai at every step and taking the horrifying consequences. Dougie has drunk so much of the Kool-Aid, he is in love with living to serve Nikolai. He is pampered and content. Mat continues to make demands of Nikolai, who warns Mat to be careful what he asks for. Mat is taking his punishments and getting back in shape with the ultimate goal of saving Mat and now Roger, whom he believes to have suffered abuse due to Mat's choices, and tear the whole operation [...]

    8. Another Wow! Nikolai continues to be a total bastard, not like we expect anything else by now, but still. The boys are as confused as ever as they flip flop back and forth between feelings from their other life to coming to grips with feelings from their new one. Dougie seems to be having less and less doubts of his position in his new life, though those niggling doubts are still there. Nikolai chooses this time, even though it seems to be a bit premature, to test Dougie in the worst way possibl [...]

    9. I'm FINALLY back in with this series. I have goosebumps. It's going to be impossible to write anything about this particular book without giving too much away. I'll just say - Hope. Hope for the series and hope for the brothers.

    10. Oh Holy Mind Fuck! I knew this one would throw me off again. I really loved Episode 8 and got way too comfortable bad. So yeah, um Mat…damn boy! Just when I was ready to be done with you and was not invested in you at all to be honest you knock my socks off! Wool socks to be exact and oh boy, do you need another pair?Nikolai’s logic sounded okay in theory, but that was what Nikolai did, just kept talking and talking and talking until you believed what he said, until you accepted his worldvie [...]

    11. OMG! The suspense! The cliffhanger! Once again, Mat and Dougie are breaking my heart, and Nikolai is proving himself to be a vicious monster. I'm on pins and needles for the next episode and for the answers to my questions. Of paramount importance, will the 10th book be the last? Will everything be wrapped up then? Rachel and Heidi continue to amaze me in their writing, their unflinching ability to put together a story that is both horrible and perfectly wonderful at the same time. The terrible, [...]

    12. Now that is time to review the only thing that comes to mind are profanities yes, a long list of them in Spanish and English alike.Review will be available at Hearts on Fire.*******Patience is NOT one of my virtuesLet the teasing commence“So I’ll do it, I’ll be the good little slave, I’ll fight when you want me to fight and I’ll stop when you tell me to stop, and I’ll suck your cock and take the beating I know you plan to dish out afterward, and I’ll even fucking thank you for corr [...]

    13. This series is akin to shooting heroin, just can't get enough of it! Matt is the ultimate tortured hero, trying to outwit the diabolical Nikolai in order save his brainwashed brother Dougie.'(Matt) just reached out with one hand to cup Dougie's cheek and hoped that would serve as comfort. The way Dougie closed his eyes and leaned into the touch, like some needy cat but sexual, somehow, made him want to pull his hand away again. But he resisted the urge. He doesn't know what he's doing. He doesn' [...]

    15. Th Flesh Cartel gets more and more disturbing with every page read. The brothers have been put through such a huge amount of pain, turture, manipulation and emotional terror that it really is a miracle that they are still alive. In this part of the series, they are finally confronted with each other, which was an extremely touching scene. While Mat is desperately trying to somehow save his brother, Dougie seams unable to cope with the situation. The suspense was very high in this book and the cl [...]

    16. Trials and Errors had more of Mathias, which I have been wanting throughout the last few books, so that made me very happy.I do devour these shorts as soon as I buy them, but I am not sure for how much longer I can go waiting to buy and read this story at such little sections at a time. I wish it was just released as a novel so I could read from beginning to end without the problems of waiting for each installment and buying it bit by bit. It is going to work out very expensive.The ending to thi [...]

    17. Oh manMat thinks he's managed to get to see his brother. He doesn't realize that Nikolai is going to use this at a big setup.Mat gets punished with a "shocking" huge plug. When he finally gets to see Dougie, it's more depraved than anything he's imagined. Douglas makes a small break through and reaches out to Mat.(view spoiler)[Mat and Dougie manage to escape the housea car is coming!!! (hide spoiler)]

    18. This was the most exciting book in the series so far, and I finally feel a glimmer of hope for the boys. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed!!!

    19. At lasthope!!But why do I feel so nervous and scaredOne more book to goPlease give Dougie and Matt their HEAPleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    20. At the end of the 8th episode we were promised/informed that Matt "has done with underestimation of Petrovic" and Petrovic "always underestimated” Matt. I doubted. This episode shows I was right. Petrovic fully controls the situation: the arrangements for brothers meeting proved that Matt didn't play in Petrovic's league. The episode is so far from the real clif-hanger as it is possible and imaginable. The trap is so obvious, the whole situation is sewn with so thick threads that you must be o [...]

    21. Review can also be read at Under the Covers Book Blog.Holy Mary, Mother of God!! In what has been an amazing series of books the likes of which I have not read anywhere else, Trials & Errors was hands-down the best thus far! For the first time in awhile, we see Mat pull himself up by his bootstraps and reveal his fortitude in doing what he needs to do to survive and to protect both Dougie and Roger. His attitude is back, and it’s wonderful to see. Of course, part of me cringes when he beha [...]

    22. I started reading this seralized novel towards the end of last year, and liked it well enough to keep reading. Two young men, brothers, are abducted, tortured into betraying each other, then sold to a slave trainer. Matt, the older gay brother, is a professional fighter who's never been able to attain his goals because his younger brother, Doug, has always been his priority. Matt and Doug are alone in the world, and survived foster care after the death of their parents by existing for each other [...]

    23. I am as engrossed as everyone else reading this series. I so want to see Dougie and Mat come through the situation that they have been forced into. When I inquired with the publishing company, they said that there are more seasons to The Flesh Cartel and could possible go to book 19 or 20. So there is much more that Dougie and Mat may go through. I cannot believe where book #9 left off! Who picked up them up and what will it mean for them? Remember that Dougie and Mat had a micro chip imbedded i [...]

    24. I took a break between book 8 and this one so I could let my stress level return to normal before getting my stomach in knots againWell, my anxiety had reached it's peak by the end of this one. Mat & Dougie seemed to get into their current hopeful position far too easily. Nikolai is arrogant, but not careless or stupidWhat about the survellience cameras? That's just one of many questions burning through my mindBook 10, you're next!

    25. Oh yes, it's another installment of the kinky fuckery we know as The Flesh Cartel. I was thrilled to see a little bit more focus on Mat (although when the focus is on you might not be pain or angst free). What else is there to say without threats of spoilers?! Not much but I will say that knowing that there are so many installments left, I'm thinking that there is no good to come for these guys in the near future.Bring on #10I'm ready for it!!

    26. **Beware: Small spoiler for previous episodes**Heidi and Rachel are a sadistic pair. Major mind-fuckery in this one. As well as a pretty intense electrical scene. Dougie and Mat get to see each other after months of separation. It does not go the way it should *Takes deep breath before picking up episode 10*

    27. Damn this one was good. Glad I don't have to wait to read the next one with this cliffhanger ending. I'm so rooting for the boys but just know if won't end up well. Nikolai is too devious, no way it can be this easy for Mat & Dougie
