The Sect by Courtney Lane

Book Description:

Published: December 11, 2014

WARNING: This book contains pretty much every dark theme there is. Not recommended for those with any triggers or sensitivities to violence, dubious and/or absent consent, and deviant sexual acts.*****This is NOT a romance and it is not a story of “true love”.

Keaton Mara ran away from a life that had become a nightmare to live on the streets. While the location she now calls home is a dangerous place, she is protected by an unlikely friendship.

The streets provided her with the education she could’ve never earned from the prestigious university she attended. Regrettably, the term ‘educated fool’ becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Due to meeting a man with whom she shares a captivating chemistry with, her judgment is clouded, resulting in a fateful decision.

The consequence of trusting the prepossessing stranger results in her being stolen away to a place unknown. Her deceptive new surroundings are just as beautiful as the people who reside there. She discovers that it’s a place where the culture of sex without limits or morals is their religion.

Keaton quickly begins to realize that the beautiful scenery serves to hide a very dark truth. The seductive and enigmatic man–who lured her there–desires to save her soul. His intentions are sinister, because saving her soul is synonymous with breaking her.

Because Keaton believes her soul was brutally stolen from her many years ago, she thinks he can’t save (or destroy) something she no longer has.She…was…wrong.

Review –
First of all, I have to say that I have read other books with much darker themes than this one, but that it not to say that this one might trigger something in some people.
This is a story of a girl who left home to get away from a bad situation and hid in plain sight on the street, with a disguise and the help of an ex-military man, Jeff, who also called the streets home.
One day she is taken, although she went willingly, compound out in the middle of no-where resembling a religious compound. There she is groomed as a sex slave and her defiance gets her punished severely several times. One of the men that beats her send her mixed signals, like one days he’s all friendly and the next beats her to near death. Regardless, she has feelings for this man.
Eventually the compound is raided and several are killed but the man Keaton has come to rely on, gets away,
There are many twist and turns and the ending is not what’s expected so if you like a good mystery with a LOT of explicit sex thrown in you should try it.

Claimed (Decadence After Dark #2) by M. Never

Book Description:

Published: March 6, 2015

With one look he consumed me.
With one touch he marked me.
With one kiss he owned me.
With one whisper he claimed me.

“No matter where you go or who you’re with, you’ll always be mine.”

Ellie Stevens thought she had moved on from the domineering man who abducted her. Now living in Hawaii and following her dreams, no one is going to keep her down. But things aren’t always as they seem.
Kayne Rivers reluctantly let Ellie go, but just because she’s gone now, doesn’t mean she’ll be gone forever. She is his, and he won’t stop until he’s reclaimed her as his own.

Claimed is a dark erotic romance. Please pay close attention to the use of the words dark, erotic, and romance. It has intense sexual situations, a Master/slave relationship, mild abuse, and some violence. Reader discretion is advised. 

Review –

This book takes up about a year after the end of the last one and we find Ellie in school and living in Hawaii and doing everything she always wanted to do plus she was seeing Michael, whom she met in one of the college classes. Still, Kanye is on her mind all the time and she can’t seem to get him out of her system.  The same goes for Kayne, except for the first three months all he did was get drunk and pick fights. If it hadn’t been for his friend, Jett, he might have ended up dead. He didn’t feel like he had anything to live for-Ellie was gone and as far as he knew, not ever coming back.

One day, Jett comes to visit Ellie and gives her an envelope from Kayne with plane tickets to Bora Bora. Kanye was reaching out to her with no expectations and Ellie decides to go. 

Once there and seeing each other for the first time was hard and awkward for both of them. Kanye  apologizes1500 times and tells Ellie that he loves her. Ellie loves him too but hasn’t said the words out loud to him but agrees to stay for the two weeks and see if they cn find a way back to each other.

Kanye is trying to be more “vanilla” in their sex  play so as not to scare Ellie away again but deep down Ellie wanted the old Kanye back and wants him to own her, in the bedroom at least.  So after several days and nights of wonderful sex she tells him and Kanye is relived to find she wants the kink back in her life. About this time, two drug lords come to Hawaii and the Endeavor data base is hacked, or so it seemed and Kanye, Ellie, Jett and London have to leave Bora Bora and fly back to Hawaii and stay safe in their fortress of a home. Ellie wants to end things with Michael face to face and leaves to meet him only to be kidnapped.  When she wakes up she finds herself with Michael, who in reality is the some of ElRey, one of the drugs killed in the previous black-ops operation and he wants Kanye to pay. He rapes Ellie and she gets away through a window and once Kanye and his men find her she is running but gets him with a bullet and is badly hurt. Kanye kills Michael and get Ellie to the hospital where she almost dies and is in a coma for three days, 

Once she’s able to leave the hospital she tells Kanye she loves him and he proposes and the epilogue is a year later and they get married. 

I loved the book and now will read the next one right away.

Review –

I have to get over feeling guilty about reading erotic romances/dark erotica, but I’m not there yet.

This book was fantastic and the author could have left out half the sex scenes and it sill would have been fantastic but not near the PLEASURE to read.

Ellie has known of Kayne for a year or so because of her job but has never, to her knowledge, attracted his attention. Little does she know that he noticed her from their first meeting and he wanted her, Finally she asks him if he’s going to a party being thrown by her boss and he says he’ll go if she is going to be there. Kanye notices a business associate coming toward him so send Ellie off to fetch drinks. Javier, a drug and slave trafficker says he like to take Ellie for his own, so Kanye jumps in and tells him that she already belongs to him. Now he has no choice but to kidnap her and make her submit and be his slave/pet. He drugs her and takes her to his huge palatial whore house.

There she will remain to be brought to the point of breaking being humiliated,left chained to a bed,in total seclusion,naked, and made to have sex whenever Kanye wished, He hates what he’s doing to her but at the same time loving it. He loves to punish her with spankings using paddles, crops and straps. He loves to make her cry. He’s a real bastard. He collars her and tells her she is his KITTEN, a pet and at times she is made to crawl on all fours.  She is stubborn and refused to submit and she is beaten many times. Kanye tells him best friend, Jett, who also works with him , that he’s doing it for his own good. While all the training is taking place Kanye falls in love with Ellie and Ellie finds herself falling in love with Kanye.

After a month, she is pretty well beat down and does everything he says and the sinister Javier is bringing the BIG BOSS  in from outside  of the country for a meeting about drugs Kanye knows that after the party being held in honor of the drug lord, everything will change.

Javier kills his own drug lord and takes Ellie, who he has been lusting for since he first saw her, and shots Kanye in the shoulder. Then all hell breaks loose and men in black bust in and start shooting..

When all is said and done we learn Kanye is a covert agent and has been working undercover for the last six years to bring down the drug lords and the slave traffickers. Ellie finds out about this from Kanye and once her collar has been removed with a bolt cutter she leaves and says she never wants to see him  again.  End

I loved this book and I’m anxious to the next installment in this series to see how they get back together, because I know they will.
