Synopsis new

Julia Bennett isn’t having a great day. Funding for her video game is low, her day job is sucking her dry, and to cap it all off she’s locked in a police station with the very handsome, extremely married guy she’s been avoiding at all costs. Max Connor isn’t having a great year. He’s getting divorced, his best friend is squatting in his house, and his inappropriate crush on the IT girl is getting way out of hand. And that was before he locked the two of them in an evidence room. Surrounded by three decades’ worth of drugs, guns, and floppy disks, Max and Julia are forced to confront the heat that lies between them with dangerous, funny, and occasionally toe-curlingly sexy results.

my thoughts new

You got to give it to Eve Dangerfield when it comes to writing the steamiest novel, so steamy that just picking up the book will guarantee to make you blush.

It’s my second time to read a book written by Eve Dangerfield. The first one was Degrees of Control which was yet again, another sex-filled romance erotica that was a pleasure to read. Locked Box is a story that tells about the characters Max Connor and Julia Bennett. These characters had a one-time hook-up years ago when Julia was still 18 and Max was 26. Now after 6 years, they met again and wow, things started to heat up once again when they were both locked in a police station.

This book was well-written. I’ve always loved Eve Dangerfield’s delicious writing. The smut was very well delivered, but I wish there is enough depth in the characters and the overall story. The story wasn’t really that engaging because it was overlapped by lots and lots of sex. I wish there were more dialogues and the platonic side of their relationship was also paid attention to. I also had a problem with Julia. Not to be judgy, I get that she loves sex but I couldn’t get the reason why she seems to be sexually pre-occupied most of the time and whenever Max is around, all she ever thinks about is getting him laid. Max’s feelings to her was very apparent and I knew it’s more than just sex, but Julia? I thought her feelings to Max were more lust than love.

Anyways, this was still an enjoyable read. A certified guilty-pleasure book. If you want to read a light erotic romance with hot and sexy characters to blow your mind, consider diving into this book. 🙂

(Thank you to the author Eve Dangerfield for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!)

Synopsis new

Anna’s entire life was scripted out before she was born by Devin Andersen, a man who doesn’t have her best interests in mind. She is to be a tool in his hands to gain ultimate power in the USA. No, not as the President, but as the man who controls the President.
Raised by an extremely abusive guardian, Anna was molded into the perfect sex slave for Devin’s use. Devin will use Anna’s unique gifts to control everyone around him and eventually take her gifts for himself.
When Devin took her for himself at the age of twelve, she had a vision of a man. A man who Devin was very interested in. But why? Why would Devin care about a little girl’s dreams?

There is a subculture within our own world that you’ve only heard whispers of. The conspiracy theorists wish they knew Anna’s story. What the conspiracy theorists think they know is only put out there to keep them from the real story.

************************** Warning *****************************

This series is for mature adults. This series is not for people who are easily offended, get nightmares easily, or have difficulty reading books about sexual, physical, emotional abuse and torture.

Book 1 is the lightest of the series. It is an introduction to Anna’s world. If Book 1 is too dark for you, please do not continue the series. If it’s not dark enough for you…heheheh…just wait. 🙂

Disclaimer: This book series is about a sex slave. Therefore, there is sex in it. Lots of sex. Other disclaimers: Physical abuse, emotional abuse, physical torture, sexual torture, rape, death, violence, violent rape, gang rape, anal sex, regular sex, violent sex, violent anal sex, sex with non-sexual objects, sex with sexual objects, m/f, m/m, f/f, m/f/m, orgies, bloody scenes, disturbing scenes, scenes that might make you throw up or cry, scenes that make my characters throw up and cry, mindfucks, cursing, drug use, multiple snuff scenes, disturbing rituals, manipulation, brain-washing, people in disturbing situations (duh!), imperfect heroes and evil antagonists doing evil things.

Not everything happens in the first book, but by the time you’ve read the series, you will have seen it all.

Do not read this if you are under the age of consent in your country. Do not get angry if the subject or actual book upsets you. If you’re reading this, you’ve been warned.

But, I do promise a satisfying Happily Ever After.

Warning: This book has been known to cause book hangovers.

my thoughts new

This book is certainly NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED and NOT FOR THE YOUNG AUDIENCES , either.

Enslaved is an extremely dark book with brutal BDSM, 0.5% romance (?), and with a lot of gangbanging going on. All the scenes were quite disturbing, but I admit that the author is adept in this kind of subject. Marissa Honeycutt was able to bring out scenes that are overloaded with mind-fuckery. All throughout the book, I was like, “WHAT THE JERK IS GOING ON???”

So the story revolves around the character named Anna. She has been training to become a sex slave for Devin Andersen since she was 16. After four years of training, she was claimed by Devin and was introduced to the sick and cruel world of underground sex-slavery wherein she was shared by some guys who also indulge in this kind of lifestyle.

There were so many cringe-worthy scenes that happened in this book that made me want to hide behind a cushion. The brutality was insane.

description

Enslaved is actually a well-written dark book, but while I liked the writing, I thought it lacked something. Maybe the romance? Or Anna’s character development? There was certainly something that’s missing. Anyways, what happened to Anna was really a bit too much and I felt sorry for her. I wish she could fight back and stand up against those bastards in the next books.
