    • Cruelty can be kindness for some. This is true for Holly. Holly is a meth head who shows up in the previous novella, Leashed. For some reason, I thought Holly would be tossed aside as worthless because she certainly was stupid. Spencer did everything he could to help Holly but he failed. Abbott decides to send Holly to Bran, another vampire master as a last ditch effort. For those who have not read Leashed, it is recommended to read the book first. This book will not be as meaningful as a standa [...]


    • This was book 4 in the "Dark Underbelly" series. The Abbott gave Holly to Bran because she is not responding very well to the things that he and Spencer were trying to help her get off drugs and help her get her life together. In Leashed Holly acted like a spoiled brat she was ungrateful. Bran has his on brand of discipline and it starts with a whip I really liked Bran he didn't let Holly get away with anything. Holly was put in her place and she begin to learn thing that were being taught to he [...]


    • It was interesting watching Holly go from an addicted whore to the Elegant Weapon that she became at Bran’s hand. I had no idea how Candace Blevins was going to pull this one off. In Leashed, Holly was incorrigible, and I did not think that even the hard-assed Bran would have been able to redeem her. But, not only did he change her, he made her into a bad-assed warrior woman.There’s no way to adequately explain all that was done without giving away the whole story of An Elegant Weapon. Let [...]


    • Dark, delicious, and degrading - Bran has it all, and lucky Holly gets to experience it all!When we last saw Holly, she was being handed off from Abbott to Bran. That is where we start, Holly is getting to experience the differences between how the two operate. Bran is a lot more hands on, rough, and corporal in his methods. This is what Holly needs, and while she suffers, she quickly learns and complies. She also learns about herself, and sees what Bran, and apparently nobody else, saw in her. [...]


    • Loved this story! Meeting Holly in Leashed I really wanted to know what became of her and if she blossomed or burned. This book did not disappoint. It gives us great insight into the makeup of the characters we meet in the Chattanooga Supernaturals books. The transformation of Holly is really something to see and I was glad that she got the opportunity she didn't take advantage of in Leashed. She has to learn things the hard way. Then there is Bran, one of the more intriguing characters in the s [...]


    • Bran! You dirty, dirty boy! Quite the in-depth profiling of the heretofore playboy without much.exity? In fact, consuming his intense philosophical approach is rewarding as a reader of these series. This story was was even more exceptional than is usual from Ms. Blevins, in large part because of the surprise: I think I was expecting *this* from Abbott, and then right out of left field, Bran gets allepon me!I admit that initially, I did not have much sympathy or patience for Holly and found mysel [...]


    • HollyI wasn't sure if I'd like Holly but turn out an awesome story about Holly's journey to become a Vampire Warrior. Hope to see more of her in the series to come.


    • Two of the most compelling comments I can read about a book and an author's work are the phrases, "I couldn't put it down" and "I never wanted the story to end." Both of these comments always refer to anything I have read by Candace Blevins, and An Elegant Weapon was definitely more of the same! Her writing is always clean and her characters are fully fleshed out and easily related with. This book in the Dark Underbelly series is a darker, more intense side of her writing - compared to some of h [...]


    • Love love loved it!I would highly recommend reading "Leashed" first as the two are very closely linked. I have not quite read all of the books in the Kristen O'Shea series but that did not stop me from enjoying this duet. It was really nice to see Holly's story picked up from Leashed. Bran has been around almost from the beginning but was never fully developed on his own. I really enjoyed getting a more in-depth view of his character. A very basic synopsis is Holly is a former drug addict who Ab [...]


    • This is another excellent paranormal romance from Candace Blevins. Although, it isn't a romance as you would normally think of romance, however, for me at least, it works well in that category. Holly was a druggie found by Abbott. He brought he into his house to get her clean and to hopefully better her life. However, it wasn't working. She did the bare minimum, wasn't happy, and wasn't doing well. That meant that Abbott had to come up with another way. Bran was the other way. He wouldn't coddle [...]


    • Intensely amazing! First words to pop out of my mouth after reading this. Candace has such talent, her ease to hook you, grab you and reel you in. I was so into this book I read and finished it in the wee hours of the morning. You should have met Holly Leashed (The Dark Underbelly of The Chattanooga Supernaturals #3) by now a down and out addict that just didn’t fit in the Abbots program. Hard headed stubborn and had no clue of her own self worth. Bran uniquely different in how he does things [...]


    • Holly's training with Abbott and Spencer had been a miserable failure. Abbott had no choice but to hand her off to Bran, whose training methods were vastly different to say the least. After an assessment, Bran saw a spark of potential in Holly and began having her trained to fight as well as training in manners, speech, foreign language, deportment etc. When she failed to perform to her trainers expectations she was caned or whipped or flogged and much more. Slowly but surely she became a finall [...]


    • I have to say, I read a lot, and there was A LOT of it, but this is the first "vampire self-growth" book (Candace, put away the paddle!!!) that I have read. Who knew that SM can become helpful to become a self-reliant person :) and that having couple of vampires around to beat the discipline into you I mean, only Candace can come up with this and make it this good !!! its the "happy ending" for Holly, who we met in UNLEASHED, but here we focus on her and Bran and you really get the meaning of " [...]


    • Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind. Holly was picked up, passed out in a park by Abbott, taken into his house to detox and get healthy. But neither his nor Spencers help is enough to get her 'stuff' in gear. When all their attempts fail, Abbott gives Holly to Bran.Bran has a totally different 'teaching style'. Where Abbott tries to teach his flock with a relatively soft touch, Bran believes in the discipline/reward approach. Everything has to be earned, from food to clothing, from blanket [...]


    • Holly was not likable when we first met her in Leashed, she could care less about anyone or anything other than herself. But Bran senses something in her and decides to set up some training, she just may turn out to be someone totally different, someone she never thought she could ever be, is she redeemable?But to get there, it takes a lot of hard work both mental and physical and Bran knows just how to teach her, and if you’ve read Candace Blevins, you know just how intense it can get. I don [...]


    • Bran gives us a glimpse of trainingI am torn with this book. I gave it five stars because the writing was spot on. Great editing and it flows. However I for once with this author was not happy with Holly one of the main characters who is hooked on meth.I love the fact that I learn so much within this author books. In Elegant weapon I learn more about how meth erodes the body and mind. But I still found Holly shallow and without depth. To be fair she did have growth with Bran. Abbott and Spenser [...]


    • AN ELEGANT WEAPON was absolutely amazing and not at all what I was expecting. If you’ve read LEASHED already or are considering buying it, then grab this one too, you so won’t be disappointed. I absolutely loved how Holly was sorted and the steps it took to get her there.One of the things I really love about Candace Blevins stories are the attention to details. There’s so much going on and then, she’ll throw in a detail and suddenly, I can picture everything she’s describing. One examp [...]


    • This was definitely a different book than I expected. It was not a romance- not that all of Ms. Blevins books are. It was about the total transformation of Holly. I've noticed Holly before, in relation to Bran, in Ms. Blevins' books. But when I encounter her again, going back to read books I've read or in future books, I am going to have a totally new appreciation for her. She is FIERCE! This book is intense, so dark in places. It goes in some not so nice places. So BEWARE- If you need warnings. [...]


    • Everyone responds to different stimuli. Holly is a junkie who didn’t respond well to Abbott and Spencer’s kindness perhaps Bran can give her what she needs. Bran tears her down and rebuilds her into the woman he knows she can be. The process is often painful and degrading but so is the life of a junkie. Bran makes her want more. If you want pretty this book isn’t for you if you want gritty then this fits the bill. This author takes me places I’ve never been before and gives me things to [...]


    • Since life with Spence and Abbott wasn’t working out, Holly gets sent to the sadistic vampire Bran. Holly thought things were bad at Abbott’s until she becomes Bran’s. His training methods are intensively tough but were very effective in shaping Holly into the woman she never knew she could be.Wow! I LOVED this book! What a great story. Candace sucks you in right from the start and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Candace is one of my go to authors and this one does not di [...]


    • Holly and I were equally surprised when she got a proposition, about halfway through the book.She does what needs to be done to make her life livable and almost never complains.She is one tough woman. I wanted to call her something different but my review will probably be removed if I did.Can’t say anything more because it would involve spoilers and that would take the fun and surprise out of reading.I received a free copy and this is my honest and voluntary review


    • This was more than I expectedI always enjoy the depth of character development in Candace Blevins 's books and this was no different. To see Holly grow and become stronger like she did was such an enjoyment. I thought that it would be a lot of sadism and sex and while that was there , in the hot way that Candace Blevins is known for, this story so much more and I couldn't put the book down.


    • ok, that was not at all what I was expecting and I loved the turn this story took.First I really love the world this story is set in and I've met Bran before so my original expectations of this story are completely reasonable and the hard left turn it took would not let me put this story down I just had to keep reading. I think Holly is eminently relatable and totally kick-ass.Great read! I very much recommend it!


    • Candace weaves an splendid tale about Holly. A junkie that needs more direction in her life than The Abbott can give. Holly is placed/given to Bran. A sadistic vampire with his own unique ways, that help Holly find her true self. I don't do spoilers, so you're going to have to read the book. 😎 It's a quick read and I love the entire series!


    • Hot, hot, hot. Holly isn't cutting it with the vampire Abbott, so she is given to Bran. Her story of drug addiction, no self worth, and slowly sinking into an abyss before redemption and resurrection was pretty riveting. The continuation of Leashed, the previous novella follows Holly's journey. BDSM is prominent in this woman's rebirth of self worth. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book .


    • I absolutely loved this book. The transformation of Holly was amazing and the author made me feel as if I was going through it with her. This book is now one of my favorites. Once again Candace Blevins has written a story that had me hooked right from the beginning until the end.


    • Outstanding Wow this is an outstanding book. I enjoyed reading more about Bran and Holly. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
