The Body Painter (Master of Trickery Duet, #1) by Pepper Winters
abuse , contemporary , crime , dark , erotica , suspense / September 11, 2019

This was heartbreaking, all-consuming and addictive. I am an emotional wreck after reading this. How will I wait for the sequel? Ms. Winters, you must be a sadist to let us wait for the part two 🙂 Gil was Olin’s soulmate. Her rock, her tormentor, her everything and then he just left and pushed her away. After a few years, she accidentally runs upon him and the intense chemistry is still there. But he changed. There are new secrets, new tormentor and new heartache. How much can she take? Everything, because he is still the one and only. This is not a happy story, it is dark, passionate, unfair, intense, emotional and cruel. It is also a love story. And in every love story, people hurt and bleed and tear up their heart that the pain is almost physical. I went through the roller coaster with this story, I cried with unfairness for a young boy, got angry toward people cruelty and wielding they power, I wanted to smack them and shake them, but most of all I felt for both of them. So much happened because of other people selfishness and the life they were put in, so much…

Mindf*ck Series by S.T. Abby

The series list: The Risk Sidetracked Scarlet Angel All the Lies Paint it all red I binged through this series I was so consumed. It was intense and I went through the roller coaster of emotions. I Cursed, I cried and laugh at the same time. Lana and her brother were tortured, raped and left to die 10 years ago. Everything was covered by corrupted and scared people, even in high places. But she came back. She plotted and learned 10 years for revenge and she is not backing down. What she didn’t expect was to find love in the middle of her rampage. She is so strong and I admired her for all she went through. The plot was intense and we get to see more and more of the past through the series. The moral compass is twisted and I couldn’t fault her for anything she does. I loved the dialogue and sarcasm, and I laughed at the pun-intended jokes. There was so much wrongness in that town I was glad it burned. There is so much more to say about the series, but you have to read it. The secrets are coming out and nobody involved is…

The Dirty Ones by J.A. Huss
contemporary , dark , erotica , mystery , romance , suspense , thriller / January 31, 2019

Buy this book now. Seriously! Just wow. I was blown away with every chapter. One of the best mystery, thriller, suspense, erotic romances lately. I am not even sure how to categorize it. It is a great mix of everything entwined. The author writes a wonderful plot, mystery with so many questions along. I went through the whole specter of emotions while reading this and it was worth it. The characters are authentic and realistic, every one of them has their own story but together they are connected with the past. The things that happened should stay there but the past doesn’t want to stay buried. 10 years after attending their senior year someone wants to play a game. Are the memories real? What is the real truth? Just one – that they are the Diry Ones and this is their story! I loved the suspense and couldn’t stop reading until I had all the answers. And when I had them I wanted to read it all over again. I wanted to cry, to yell to hug them or just be with them. The suspense, the building and the romance with an erotic encounter is the perfect mix in an…

Notice by K. Webster
abuse , contemporary , dark , erotica , romance , suspense / January 20, 2019

This was one intense ride. I like how the author knows how to hit taboo themes and makes them very readable. Violet suffered a lot by her abusive ex boyfriend. From rape, pimping to forced drugs and more. She is in hiding but works for a company with eccentric chef. After 6 year not being appreciated as a employee, she decides to quit – but than her boss finally notice her. She becomes his obsession. Their chemistry is sparkling and they just click in nonconventional way. Their sex is smoking hot and his dirty talk would fire up even the dead. I hurt with them and both of their past but they both survived and didn’t became victims of their decisions. Yeah they were both a bit different but in a good way 🙂 I liked that about them. This is one good darkish erotica story.

The Day She Cried by K. Webster
abuse , dark , erotica / January 6, 2019

Damn this reminded me why I hate bullies and popular in High School who had their own groupies and acted like they are Gods and could get away with everything. The plot is realistic with tough situations and dark heroes. Life isn’t always fair and there will be people who will screw you which sucks. For Courtney there were consequences and there were moments I wanted to yell at her to grow a backbone and stop being a sheep. But with a help from her so called nemesis she turns into a wolf. I loved seeing her transformation. The ending is HEA yet a bit unrealistic. I did like how the author exposed the now day problems with cyberbullying.

Sweet Jayne by K. Webster
abuse , contemporary , dark , erotica , non-con , romance , suspense / December 30, 2018

Wow, this was one hell of a dark, twisted and intense story. It kept me on edge till the end. Nadia is a 17 old girl. Her mother married a millionaire Donovan Jayne. He is handsome, overprotective and there is obvious chemistry between them, but still he is her stepdad and off limits. One day her new friend Kasey is kidnapped and even though she witnessed the kidnapping she doesn’t remember much. Years later, Kasey still wasn’t found and Nadia is engaged to her stepdad (ex) best friend and police Chief Logan. She has her own agenda while still searching for Kasey,but there are others too who won’t let the past in the past. I loved the plot, the suspense and all the graphic details despite the dark and twisted scenes. There is a lot of sex, non-con acts and some weird romance. Everything slams together in the end and we do have some sort of HEA. The characters were real and their charisma was strong. I just couldn’t get over Logan, he was such a prick from the beginning and I still don’t understand how he managed to manipulate everything. Further into the book I hated his guts and…

Knotted (Trails of Sin, #1) by Pam Godwin

Wow this was one intensely dark read. The emotional suspense, intrigue, love, passion, commitment, kink and more… 4 friends, young and innocent got sucked into a scheme of grownups. Their youth taken away too soon, too swift and it changed everything. One couple, two brothers all very protective of the only girl in their little circle.

While preparing to make it special and a bit kinky, they got ambushed. So 3 boys are forced to watch their friend being raped over and over again. Her innocence brutally taken, and the traumatic incident changed them all. 6 years later little bits and pieces are clearing up about the past. Nothing is as it seemed at first. The dark schemes revealing a lot more everybody expected. All The characters are strong. Dominating cowboys protective and possessive of their own. They show a wide range of emotions and sometimes act in unpredictable ways, but they move the plot forward with their action. I love how they are dark and hurt but they still know how to…

Falling Series Boxed Set (Falling #1-3) by A. Zavarelli
BDSM , dark , erotica , romance / March 28, 2018

I received this book in exchange for honest review  The title of the series is fitting for what it holds. We have Gabriel and we have Victoria. They come from different words but from the first moment they can’t get each other out of their head. The reader can smell the romance here, but it is not a typical romance. It is intense, with some crime, kinky sex, sexy scenes and light BDSM. In their first encounter he comes out like a snob but still they draw a spark. He is an alpha male who knows what he wants but through the stories we see some of this insecurities. I liked the change in his personality that comes from his attachment to her. Their relationship is intense and scenes are hot but there were moments when he was cold and arrogant on purpose. And then we have Victoria who is running from her psychotic step mother. And her number one rule is don’t get attached and never stay more than 3 months at the same place. Small parts from her running may come unrealistic but they add to suspense. I could split the series into three important breakthroughs: The truth,…

We Were One Once (We Were One Once #1) by Willow Madison
abuse , BDSM , dark , erotica / March 28, 2018

I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review Fresh and dark romance with a great story and unexpected turns. Mysterious love triangle with intense characters. Each of them has a special personality or even more of them. We go through bits and pieces and getting to know them is a journey. Their lives seems complicated on times but they all have their dark secrets. I loved how the past and the present came closer and closer together until we connect the dots…but one ending opens another beginning. I loved the twisted minds and games, the intense situations and the scenes. A beautiful girl full of contradictions is also full of surprises. Despite everything we have a romance. Simon surprised me when he showed his softer side, it would be interesting if he would go through with all his plans, but is nice to have some sweet romance in the middle of the dark passion Three main characters: I could’t hate Simon despite his “job”, she is just interesting and funny but Miles….wow, he surprised me. I can’t wait to see what happens next
