Organized crime I was sure this would be a dark, gritty story that would keep me on the edge of my seat and have me chewing my nails down to the quick.Unfortunately, it didn t happen While this story did have some dark elements, it was watered down I felt like the author wanted to be dark and edgy, but was afraid to cross that line and truly embrace that darkness If you re a fan of dark reads, then you know the type Olivia Bell, our heroine, is abducted after she inadvertently stumbles upon a murder She can t be set free after what she witnessed, so she is given to the murderer, Kane, to break Of course, he happens to be an incredibly handsome guy that is in the business of breaking and training sex slaves.Sounds dark, right Well, if Kane hadn t been remorseful and sympathetic it might have been believable Top that off with Olivia s immediate and constant arousal in his presence, and it is hard to take this book seriously as a dark story Instead of being the edge of your seat story that I had craved, it ended up being a fluffy read with some kink Less Captive In The Dark and BDSM Carebear, if you get what I m saying It was okay, but not what I thought I was signing on for.Overall, it was a middle of the road type of book for me It is a standalone and won t leave you hanging However, if your looking for a dark romance erotica that will make your pulse pound and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, you won t find it here flag 136 likesLike see review View all 40 comments Oct 13, 2016 Chantal added it review of another edition Shelves abused heroine, bdsm,

spoiler REALLY NOT FOR ME It seems to me that this author often writes about pushover sub heroines that take the crap the heroes give them It s always about controlling Dom sub but not the protective type although they say they are, they are not it often ends in pain and humiliation for the heroine Also, I have a hard time with the pain aspect of BDSM and she writes mostly about this BDSM I thought was about informed consent I have no idea here I could be wrong This is Not romance just painful sex, oral sex, and anal sex Just going to avoid this author Her writing is not for me flag 65

so, I find it a bit unbelievable and ridiculous that a woman can witness a brutal crime, get kidnapped, yet when she is finally face to face with the big, bad criminal, just the deep cadence of his voice makes her pussy clench with sinful thoughts Seriously Why do they always get wet immediately Now I m ignoring that I ve read this exact premise before other than to say if I were the other author, I d be super pissedbecause dayum Okay, moving on So, Kane is going to train Olivia to be his slave He doesn t tell her he s undercover, but he does tell her that things aren t quite what they seem to be He explains that he just needs her to be perfect for him because their lives are in danger, but she can go home when it s all over Oh, and shh don t tell anyone She agrees let the training begin Things are progressing, but it s the weirdest training I ve ever read no sex, no punishment Say what now He shows her around a BDSM mansion and makes her watch She has this really weird freak out that makes zero sense Do you know about BDSM or anything at all about Master slave relationships he asks I know all about them I ve read about them in books Then later, when watching a submissive about to be paddled by her Dom along with several other people in attendance watching the show It s a paddle My heart races faster in my chest He s going to beat her My legs move naturally in an attempt to protest and save her I can t stand by and watch this I won t If she is so in the know because she s read about them in books, this seems like a disproportionate reaction to watching a woman get her butt paddled, especially when her Dom prefaced it by announcing, Tonight, my Sara will show her submission to me, and devotion to our lifestyle Just sayingThe don t actually have sex until 60% in because he wants her to desire him, not just submit to him He only punishes her once and it s by edging her He does threaten to, then he says, I changed my mind And even though he changed his mind, she still says later, he just punished me last time Umm, no he didn t And that s one of many, many problems.Kane sits on the bed, and then he walks to the bed Olivia searches a woman s face even though the woman s back is her Olivia cries about Victor hurting her even though all he did was make her crawl, and on and on It just didn t make any sense.Then there was the gratuitous sex scene Now normally I wouldn t complain about this, but Kane repeatedly says he ll never share her He said he d protect me from them, and he d be the only one to touch me But as the two other Doms rise from their seats, he changes his tune and says, Now would be the time to say no if you don t want this In the end, of course, you get your HEA as promised in the blurb Then again, no cheating is promised too, and there is one scene that I suppose some people might argue flag 15 likesLike see review View all 13 comments Dec 12, 2016 Mischenko rated it really liked it review of another edition

against her will and she can t cope with that in the nice calm state what is pretty damn normal So she let s her beast out, that s when Kade decide it isn t safe for both of them in that house and she needs proper training And that s where it begins to be a bit Oh no for me.Kade takes her to a mansion for BDSM couples or woman and men separate This doesn t bother me but the name calling in the mansion not in the bedroom or the whatever room is a bit much Like do you see yourself in a take a way or restaurant and they ask you what you want and you need to look at Master K K for Kade for approval before saying what you want and he says It s okay Angel, tell the man woman what you want In his defense he doesn t use the term slave But that doesn t mean I don t like a bit BDSM it just means let the name calling in the bedroom and then I wouldn t even do itSo here are a bit of spoilers that I need to get of my chest view spoiler Master G Gabriel is the owner and he has his esclave

witnessed a brutal murder committed by the tall, dark and fearsome Kade Maddox aka Master , a nefarious criminal in the sex trafficking trade He takes her captive, but in order to spare her life, he brokers a deal with the head ringleader to break her and turn her into the perfect slave She is far from compliant at first, and fights tooth and nail trying to run away, forcing him to move her from his comfy home to a sinful brothel, home to sex slaves and their masters, where her intense, rigorous slave training will commence But Kade is harboring some dangerous secrets and vows to protect her at all costs Although she knows it s all kinds of wrong she is powerfully aroused by Master K s training and finds herself falling head over heels for her captor As the danger, desire and deceit reach a fever pitch, neither of them counted on the shocking turn of events that is about to implode both their worlds I REALLY wanted to like this book because it started out in a really thrilling and electrifying manner and I was excited at the prospect of diving into this dark master slave tale where we see the hero s internal struggle between forbidding captor vs noble savior But although I was drawn to the hot, sexy and breathtakingly tender master slave dynamic between Kade and his sweet angel, overall this book did not work for me The author touted this as her first dark romance but it really wasn t really all that dark or compelling Granted, it was well written and there were some really hot BDSM scenes but it lacked dramatic urgency and after a while I found myself skimming the sex scenes and slave training sequences because if felt very redundant On the positive side, I liked Kade he was dark and domineering and fiercely protective, and was so exquisitely gentle and doting with Olivia it melted my heart And his captive, Olivia, was sassy and fiery in the beginning and certainly gave him a run for his money But once the training began, she became too passive for my taste Turns out his plan to break her into complete submission worked TOO well She spends practically the entire book doing his bidding and complying with his every demand out of fear of being punished, and the end result is she come across as weak and pathetic Another big problem I had with this book was that there was no genuine depth to this romance, or any real character development This was very much a sexually driven story that was heavy on the BDSM with a little drama and suspense thrown in Pretty much the entire plot was focused on her slave training in the sex slave brothel and there was no real palpable love story here to make my heart race The feelings that Olivia develops for her captor are truly a case of Stockholm Syndrome and little else I never felt as if I got to really know Kade or Olivia on a personal level and they did not have much rooting value for me because I didn t connect emotionally with them as couple And while their romance if you can call it that had its sweet moments, their interactions lacked sparks, passion and genuine feeling, and the climax I felt to be quite anticlimactic and the HEA extremely rushed Overall, this book had an intriguing premise and had some steamy interludes and sweet tenderness, but it ultimately fell short on execution But even though this particular book is a miss for me, I am still a fan of the talented Ms Willow s work

    1. I picked this book up as a loaner with my Kindle Unlimited membership I love, love, love dark stories that deal with captivity The books that come with the long disclaimers, cautioning readers and warning of triggers, are usually my favorites I m twisted that way.After reading the blurb for Broken A Dark Romance , I thought I d ran across a gold mine Abduction Sexual slavery Organized crime I was sure this would be a dark, gritty story that would keep me on the edge of my seat and have I picked [...]


    2. THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR MERead only a few pages and remembered right away, this author mostly doesn t work for me I skimmed a lot and I got to the end of the story It was exactly what I thought it was going to be This is a story about a Dom and how he breaks a young girl for the enjoyment of others He is a total rapist and abuser to me She DID NOT ask for what happened and what he did to her and although she is accepting in the end and falls in love with him, it felt like Stockholm syndrome to THIS [...]

    4. Meh I was expecting from this book considering the dark subject matter is totally what I look for in a good read.The heroine was doormat material and the hero was of a willing participant in what was going on and less of a victim of circumstance For someone who is forced to do the things he does, he certainly enjoys it much than I thought he should.


    5. Now, I m no writer, nor am I an expert on Stockholm Syndrome or capture bonding, but I feel pretty confident in saying that if you re going to go with the whole victim falls in love with her kidnapper plot, one of two things needs to happen 1 Lots of lots of time, or 2 some kind of psychological conditioning usually a combination of the two But, maybe that s just me Even so, I find it a bit unbelievable and ridiculous that a woman can witness a brutal crime, get kidnapped, yet when she i [...]


    6. BizarreThis book was nothing like what I expected it to be and I found myself wanting to put it down, feeling like it just wasn t for me Funny thing is, I never did and I finished it I had to learn the fate of Kade and Olivia It s truly a very dark romance in my opinion and I m surely not used to reading this genre With that said, I still enjoyed the book and I like the way it was written The ending was what I wanted it to be, even if it seemed like a lie I d recommend this to anyone who l Bizar [...]


    7. I call bullshit Blurb said there was no cheating in this story which was one of the reasons I decided to read it Letting 2 other guys fuck her while he watches is cheating in my book Very disappointed with this book I hate being lied to DNF 68% Thank God I got it from KU Don t think I will be reading this author again since this was the first book I read of hers.
