BOOK:  King and Tyrant

MY RATING FOR IT: 4 ½ stars

SYNOPSIS

Homeless. Hungry. Desperate.

Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from.

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, pu$$y or a combination of all three.

King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

This book has had some great reviews, and for some reason I just didn’t feel it, so I was postponing it as much as I could, BIG MISTAKE!!

This story was amazing, like really amazing, I just can’t even …. King is my new God!!

This was my first T.M. Frazier’s books, I have other books of her but haven’t read then yet, I have heard some great things about her writing though! So I jump in to this story that was being raved at everywhere.

This story begins with Doe, a girl without her memory, and living in terrible conditions on the streets. She doesn’t know why she’s there or what happened to her to put her at this place.

I don’t know where I came from.
I don’t know how hold I am
I don’t know my real name.

The only person she apparently know s is her prostitute friend, that’s convincing her to buy herself some protection with some biker at some random party.

Doe was frightened, but strong and willing to do whatever it took to save herself of more hurt on the streets but her faith somehow gets her in contact with King.

“In all the time I’d been living on the streets, I’ve had some close calls, some serious gut check moments. I’ve seen things that have made my skin crawl and my heart race. I was very familiar with feeling afraid. Fear had nothing on King.”

King is coming back from a 3 year run prison , and he’s not feeling like his old self, he feels a little broken and a lot changed by the different things going on  he’s life , but he’s so strong and though , hell do what it must be done in order to get what his.

King has a business that he and his best friend Preppy built from the ground up since they were kids, but nothing feel the same for King, especially after he meets Pup.

“I found myself again in the most unlikely place. I’d found myself again in the haunted eyes of a girl who was just as lost as I was. Or maybe, we didn’t find each other at all. Maybe, we just decided to be lost together.”

Doe makes him feel something, he doesn’t know what, but it’s different, and that’s something he can’t get out of his mind, he just knows that nothing is as it used to be and this girl is part of that, so he won’t hesitate to make her his..

This is the kind of gritty strong and heart felt story  that u have to read for yourself , so I won’t spoil it for u , cause let me tell u it gets better and better and the second book Tyrant ….Dayuuuuuuuuum , it’s amazing

This book has amazing character all the way; cause let me tell you, the secondary character Bear and Preppy are amazing to read.

U guys have to read this book, cause it will blow your mind, it’s full of action and hotness with a side of sweet and very funny at times.

(Well in the second book there are some asshole characters too, but I can’t explain because it will give too much away!!)

King is a magnetic, super alpha , rough around the edges character that will win your heart , and Doe is no wall flower , which is a joy to read , she’s strong and willful and no push over , and they together are smoking hot !!!

“King filled me so completely. Not just my body. My heart. My soul. My life. I didn’t give a shit if I ever got my memory back. Because with King, I knew exactly who I was. I was his.”

If you like your romances a little on the dark side, this certainly will hit jack pot for you

Be aware that the first book leaves you with a brutal cliffhanger, but since the second book is out since a few months ago you should be able to skip some of the angst and go straight to the second one like I did.

U wont regret this choice causes it was ……AMAZING!! Both of them where

Captive in the Dark (Dark Duet #1),Seduced in the Dark (Dark Duet #2),Epilogue (Dark Duet #3) by C.J. Roberts

Dark Duet

BOOK:  The DarK Duet Series (Captive in the dark, Seduced in the dark and Epilogue)

MY RATING FOR IT: 5 stars!!

SYNOPSIS

Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was.

Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

This is a hard review to write, because this is by far one of my all-time favorites!!! And I’m very serious when I say that, cause this book did a number on me …

I decided to do a review of the 3 book at once, I don’t want to be too repetitive with my ohhh’s and Haaa’s . Besides if you read the first one you probably won’t stop and will read the other 2.

This book was a mind fuck, and when I finished the first one I didn’t know if I felt happy for Livvie or deeply sad ….

This is a twisted story of revenge and the people that get in the middle of that shitty situation.

Livvie is a pretty and shy teenage girl that get choose to be kidnapped to become a sex slave by the ruthless Caleb, he’s on his way to getting his revenged from the Man that took everything from him and his friend, and poor Livvie will play a big part in getting that revenged (even as she doesn’t know it yet)

“People often believed they were safer in the light, thinking monsters only came out at night.”

“Could she sense her life as she knew it hanging precariously in the balance? Could she feel his eyes on her? Did she have a sixth sense for monsters? The thought of it made him smile”

Caleb (the Male protagonist) is to train her to become a pliant slave and to understand that her life has change for ever …..He was hard to read, he was so good at times , sexy , demanding , but so very cruel, he was very confused , especially when he starts to developed some sort of caring feelings towards his slave girl.

“Like a Falcon, she needed the dark to understand who her master was. She would learn to trust him, to rely upon him, to anticipate what he wanted from her. And like any master with his salt, he would reward her for her obedience. He would be exceedingly firm, but he would also be as fair as he could be. He had notchosen the instrument of his revenge at random. He had chosen a beautiful submissive. And what was a submissive if not adaptable -if not a survivor?”

“I wrapped my arms around him and held on as hard as I could. He was my tormentor and my solace: the creator of the dark and the light within. I didn’t care that he would undoubtedly hurt me at any moment, right now; I just needed somebody to hold me… To tell me these exact words. Its going to be okay. It wasn’t of course, I knew that. But I didn’t care, I needed the lie.”

Livvie was terrified, but oh so brave, her character was willful and not easy to brake, she can’t’ understand what’s going on, why her?? Why him …. Especially why he, a man that makes her teenaged unexperienced body feel things that she has never before experienced …

Caleb was hard to like , he was cruel and very difficult to read at times , but somehow I was seeing that there was not all bad inside him…  he was put in situations that made him who he was and that was undeniably understandable …to a point obviously!!

The first book totally left make reeling!! I just needed to know what was going to happen … my angst levels where so over the roof ….

And then book to just shattered me!! It crushed my little Hurt!! L

“I’ve been doing this a long time- manipulating people to get my way. That’s why you think you love me. Because I’ve broken you down and built you back up to believe it. It wasn’t an accident. Once you leave this behind….. you’ll see that. -Caleb”

We get to experiences what Livvie went thru and the evolution of Caleb’s feeling towards her , all in an environment full of twisted people and sex slaves !!!

I feel so many things reading this book … I can’t even …

“It seemed to Caleb, the nature of human being revolved around one empirical truth: we want what we cannot have. For Eve, it was the fruit of the forbidden tree. For Caleb, it was Livvie.”

Wow as I re-read it last week I remembered why I loved it so much, C. J. Robert can tell a story like a few people can ,I have read several stories about the kidnaped/sex slave  theme, and I have enjoyed then very much , but for some reason I always compare the to The Dark Duet !!!

I don’t want to spoil you the amazing book by telling too much, because this book is a trip that you must endure by yourself.

Just a quick reminder, that the last book is an Epilogue of sorts and is in Caleb’s point of view and what could be better than that!!

“I’m writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging”  -Caleb in Epilogue

Sooooo GO READ IT, I don’t want you to miss out.
