Synopsis new

In the steamy and suspenseful sequel to Sugar Daddy, a heartbreaking rift threatens to unravel a dangerous alliance… and a fragile new love.

After posing as an escort for the Sugar Bowl online dating service, Sela Halstead is looking for one thing: payback. She’s closing in on the site’s heartless founder, Jonathon Townsend, and she needs Beckett North, Townsend’s business partner and her lover, by her side. She’d thought that their intimate nights together had forged an unbreakable bond, but after a shocking betrayal, Sela begins to doubt the brilliant bad boy. When push comes to shove, can she trust Beck to do the right thing?

Now that he understands the truth, Beck will stop at nothing to secure the reckoning Sela deserves. But between his desire for her and his disgust for JT, Beck doesn’t exactly have a lot of control over his emotional state. Left with no other choice, he must summon all his discipline to maintain JT’s trust and pretend that they’re still friends. But how far will Beck go to prove his loyalty to Sela? He nearly lost her once. To keep her, Beck might have to kill for her.

Note: Sugar Rush ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story concludes in Sugar Free!

my thoughts new

That ending. What the flying f*ck was that???

I knew I’m in for a ride when I started this book because the first one turned my world upside down. I was right. Sugar Rush evolved on a new level. It’s darker, a lot more gripping, and intense!

As Sela Halstead and Beck North‘s relationship progressed and their quest to seek revenge and destroy JT started, things become trickier. Family ties and the Sugar Bowlbusiness get in the way for Beck to achieve his goal so they dived into a more concrete yet risky plan with the help of their trusted investigator. But things are not as easy as they thought. More revelations keep coming out that hinder their plans. Even their dream of a happily ever after is almost impossible if they don’t do it right.

This sequel was brought out very well. I loved Sela and Beck’s character development and how they became at ease with each other and even gave their complete trust to one another. Sela opened up to Beck and told him about that part of her past that continue to give her a lot of reason to get back to JT. And after all the things she revealed, Beck was there to protect her.

Alright… so once again Sela made a stupid decision here which kind of pissed me off but I was still surprised that her stupidity was actually the thing that created a boomerang in this sequel. I did get nervous and I freaked out in every chapter.. especially the last few ones.

If you haven’t started this book yet, you better do so. Unless you’re not into dark romantic reads and deadly cliffhangers, then stay away from it. But if you love this kind of theme, this series is going to satisfy you. I’ve never been so happier to try Sawyer Bennett’s book. She is so worth it. Her writing style is superb and something that I wasn’t perhaps expecting.

Sugar Rush, all in all, is one amazing sequel. It had my mind spinning and my emotions on a ride, something I cannot imagine of feeling. I need the third book to come out now!

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.
