Trust in Me- Skye Warren(Dark Erotica #2)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Review posted on Wicked Reads
WOW! I’m not sure how to review this book.
Disclaimer:This book is NOT traditional erotica. It is a non-consensual storyline that includes force, violence, brutality, humiliation. In other words if you are looking for steamy lust scenes with hot leading men, this isn’t it. I, however- enjoy isn’t the correct word- crave this sort of story. For me dark erotica holds a very small niche in the erotica genre. When written well it is extremely psychological and fulfills certain needs for the reader. I liken it to a cutter using a razor blade to have a visual release of the pain that is held within their soul. I am able to relate to the characters and find my own release through their struggles and pain. If you aren’t sure what I am saying than this probably isn’t the type of book you NEED to read. With all that saying, the storyline was superb. In other words, if the brutal premise of the book doesn’t upset you then you will undoubtedly enjoy the exciting storyline, back story, and heartbreaking bond.
I was captured from the very first sentence, drawn into the story as if watching it play out in my own mind. The story pacing and flow of information were flawless. The characters were obviously flawed, yet undeniably realistic. No matter how brutal the story it ended with a HEA and a feeling of hope. No matter how you are victimized, as long as you don’t break, you will never be a victim. Even after experiencing this painful journey, I finished with a smile on my face and warmth in my heart.
I definitely plan on reading more from this author in the near future, or simply when my craving returns and I am in need of release.
Trust In Me (Dark Erotica #2)
Mia longs for the daily torture to end, but one last task keeps her holding on. In a betrayal of the crime lord who pulled her from the gutter, she’ll free the shipment of human cargo, and if she’s lucky, die in the process. The alternative is unfathomable, even to a woman well-versed in erotic torture. But luck abandons her yet again when she meets the security expert in charge of the shipment and finds herself face to face with her childhood crush. The man she once begged for help. The man who failed her.
Tyler Martinez is an undercover FBI agent with one chance to right the wrongs of his past. Thrust deep into the seedy world of human trafficking, he must put aside his guilt over abandoning Mia all those years ago in order to save her now.
Someone’s pulling the strings in this sadistic play on trust, but Tyler and Mia may not live long enough to see the curtain fall. Trust in Me is a story of erotic pain and incipient romance, spiraling ever faster toward betrayal or redemption.
This book contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. It also depicts abuse and captivity situations. Not appropriate for anyone uncomfortable with these situations or anyone under the age of eighteen. This is a work of fiction.
“Dark, disturbing, haunting, and beautiful, Skye Warren will take you into the depths of depravity but bring you home, safe in the end.” — Kitty Thomas, author of “The Last Girl”
