"They came to earth--Pestilence, War, Famine, Death--four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all. When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn's town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed. Too bad no one told her Pestilence can't be killed. Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he's eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she's with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her ... and hers towards him. And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she'll have to sacrifice her heart in the process"--Page 4 of cover.

"Ok so I finished it in hours, don’t come for me. I really love this theme of enemies to lovers, villain’s deep dark twisted purpose questioned by a heroine who’s willing to risk it all for the greater good, even if it means losing what she comes to cherish the most. Their first encounter?PHENOMENAL! The end however, eh. But I’m committed nonetheless, cuz apocalyptic sexy horsemen #sayless "
"Yep I got enticed by a beautiful cover so sue me. You ever just get in the mood for a trashy read? Rhetorical question you wouldn't be here if you didn't. This plot to me was highly interesting but the execution of course was below par.<br/><br/>Let's start with the main character Sarah. False modesty seemed to sweat off of her. Please tell me of a more annoying trope than someone acting like they haven't done a good deed when they have 100 times over. "You saved a man." "No I was just there and it happened it's nothing no no no don't thank me." *blush* And come on is she really ignorant enough to think no one else has tried to kill Pestilence? And oh the inner ramblings. A little immature and eye rollingly annoying at times. I gawked at one scene were Sarah gets hurt and instead of soaking up every second she can so the rest of the world doesn't parish she's like "I'm healed let's go take out the rest of the world." <br/><br/>The book had a nice atmosphere which was nice for the cold fall weather. A little world building which is always my favorite. I loved Tricksy even his silly name. Pestilence character was over all well done. Of course I have my gripes but he was curious and timeless. Though the talking during, and I'm finger quoting here, love making was weird. But in all honesty I couldn't imagine the weight on his shoulders to be put into being to destroy the world. It must be very lonely.<br/><br/>I felt very uneasy about them throwing God into some things. It sound off hand and in poor taste. I am in no way wildly religious but it's unnerving when you mention God in trashy books like it was his plan all along for you to bone her.... So to end this rambling I was just disappointed at the main character. This was also a strange subject to write about riddled with mine fields and to me the Author wasn't careful enough to get around most of them. The cheesy inner monolog probably is what ruined it most for me. Oh and the talk about #lovemaking sometimes while in the middle of the act. Trashy books for me are always balanced on a ledge and it takes one corny conversion to tip it over."
"Experienced a full range of emotions with this one."
"<a href="http://laughinglistener.com/"><br/>The Laughing Listener</a><br/><b>Format:</b> Ebook<br/><b>Overall Rating:</b> 4 Stars<br/><br/>PICTURE THIS. Me lazing on my couch procrastinating doing work by going through the hordes of junk emails that litter the inbox on my phone. I only keep a precious few, one of which is the Goodreads romance newsletter because I get a kick out of some of the titles they list on that thing each month. This one catches my eye because of the pretty cover and once I read the description I download it IMMEDIATELY. <br/><br/>It sounds like the most ridiculous thing ever and I HAVE to know more. I mean, she falls for one of the four horsemen?? Wtf?!? HOW?! <br/><br/><img src="https://media.giphy.com/media/CPskAi4C6WLHa/giphy.gif" width="" height="" alt="WHAT??"><br/><br/>I'm here to tell you that this surpassed my expectations because IT'S HILARIOUS, both intentionally and unintentionally. First, for all my friends who don't know (since I had to do a little Googling myself), this is about The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Four men on horseback sent to start the apocalypse with each one symbolizing a tragic end—Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death. Obviously, this one is about Pestilence, the one who brings sickness and plague. <br/><br/>That's right, HOMEGIRL FALLS IN LOVE WITH THE PLAGUE. I can't stress enough how endlessly entertaining that was for me. SHE GETS IT ON WITH THE PLAGUE. And apparently, the plague is a hottie. Who knew? <br/><br/>The great thing about this book is that it knows <i>exactly</i> how kooky it is and plays into that using Sara, the hilariously blunt, sarcastic narrator and protagonist. In between my bouts of hysterics over her FALLING IN LOVE WITH PLAGUE (SERIOUSLY), I had some genuine laughs over Sara's inner monologue. The combination made for a strangely pleasant reading experience. <br/><br/>Now I'm trapped waiting for the next one, which I HAVE to read because I'm SO CURIOUS. The next novel will be about the horseman War and I need to know how his power works. Does he start brawls wherever he goes?? When his love interest finally meets him, will they just get an overwhelming desire to punch him in the face??? When he walks into a room, do a million fights break out??? I'm picturing it a lot like that church scene in Kingsman where everyone just rabidly attacks each other.<br/><br/><img src="https://media.giphy.com/media/PWTlFZAPjQ0SY/giphy.gif" width="" height="" alt="Colin Firth being a badass"><br/><br/>THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS AND I NEED ANSWERS.<br/><br/><spoiler>Plus, I TOTALLY noticed that offhand comment Sara makes at the very end about wading through kid toys to get to Pestilence. Did they have babies together?!? HOW DOES THAT WORK??? Are their kids immortal?? Does being around them give everyone allergies or pink eye or something??? WHAT IS HAPPENING?!?</spoiler><br/><br/><b>FINAL WORD</b><br/>Despite the insane and amusing plot, I really liked the writing style of this!! I vote you read it for the entertainment value."
"honestly i loved Pestilence. Even though he was so dead set on his task, it is understandable that he didnt know himself and didnt have a purpose without his duty. <br/><br/>he was so wholesome and precious with Sara. He never experienced happiness or any human connection and finds meaning outside of his duty with her. He is inexperienced in the cutest way and everything has such heightened meaning to him. Love him"
