I don’t even know where to begin with this review. My emotions were all over the place with this story. I literally felt like I was in Kyra’s shoes the whole time. Distorted Hope is labeled as dark but I would consider it more of a grey romance. Though it has some dark undertones, it’s not necessarily dark, for me, based on the ones I’ve read in the past. Aside from its level of dark elements, it was a memorable story that kept my heart in palpitations from start to finish.

Sweet and innocent Kyra waits tables and crushes on a cutie that comes into the diner she works at. After a short time of dating, strangers show up to enlist him to help on a job and poor Kyra gets taken along for a ride she won’t ever forget. 

When she meets the boss man, Nathan Pierce, she doesn’t know how to deal. He’s nice one minute and rude/mean, the next. She’s his leverage for making sure Jason stays on task and he makes a point to prove it every chance he can. But things change quickly and Sweet Kyra is in a high as things look up for her…until that’s no longer the case. 

Throughout the story, I was just as confused as Kyra. I fell in love, but unlike her the love didn’t last long, but the. I was back in love. I was frustrated and couldn’t understand how Kyra was so easy going with how things went. She took everything in stride and I couldn’t figure out if it was evident of her strength or naïveté. But no matter how things were going for her I was nothing short of 100% invested in what happened to her and the other characters. 

This was my first Marissa Honeycutt novel and I am a new fan and can’t wait I read more of her work.

synopsis (2)

TPOAW Front

All of us live with a demon inside. Some days, you control the demon. And other days, it controls you. But the one thing that never changes is that it’s always hungry. It feeds on lust and longing. You may slumber, but the demon never sleeps. It tempts you into crossing every line you’ve ever drawn, and all the while, it tests you, haunts you. And once it has turned your loved ones into enemies, the demon has consumed you whole. ~Jordana

Jordana Albanese grew up in a world that spun with lies, secrets, and multiple sins. Her father, Gene—reigning king in the Mafia for the last few decades—never protected her from his underworld dealings (La Coso Nostra). She learned at a young age that in order to survive in her world, one must be dominant. She wore the shield of control on a daily basis, but all she wanted was to slip it off and discard it like yesterday’s laundry. Except, letting it go would mean letting it all go. And she didn’t want that. She learned of a compromise—to let go of control in private, behind a closed door, with the orders of him. Not simply to be controlled, but to be dominated. The only problem was that her ambitions cut bone deep. Deeper than her Dom’s belt on her ass. Deeper than the marks from the restraints he used to subdue and pleasure her. The enduring marks were not visible to the human eye. They were profound wounds—scars—on her soul that only she could feel.

And that’s where she found the perfect balance in the two. Her submissive tendencies served her well in the bedroom. However, in public, she was very much as dominant as her male counterparts.

CJ Carmichael hasn’t been able to get the vivacious blonde he spent four delirious days with off his mind. The blonde who was completely off-limits, but he couldn’t deny.

Tell me a secret….

Title: I See You

Co Written By: D.H Sidebottom & Ker Dukey

Genre: Dark romance

Release Date: July 15, 2015

CU Synopsis

I watch you, I see you in ways no one else can, and through my lens I create a life of you for someone to dissect. I capture you in your vulnerability; that smile, your laugh, those tears. I document you and sell your secrets.

When I watch you through my lens you’re mine until I pass you to the buyer. I, like most people, have a fetish for pretty things and in my job I get to be around a lot of pretty things. They pay me to watch them and capture them in a frame for many purposes, and sometimes I like my profession a little more than I should.

I took a job to capture her… I wanted to capture and keep her in more than just the image. This time I will take myself away from the lens and become the client because I cannot resist her, she reminds me too much of my first, I need to have her.

Traumatised from a vicious attack, Nina Drake finds herself shut off from the world until her neighbour brings her out of more than just her nightmares. Even after moving and changing her name, she still can’t shake the feeling of being watched. The memories are so close.

And so is the shadow of the creator of them all.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Excerpts

#1

Sade looked up to find he’d laid Mercy on the floor and held a chair out for him to sit in.

“Oh, she’s fine. I didn’t hurt her. Just some chloroform.” He glanced down then back at Sade. “I think I used too much, she’s been out for so long. Such a delicate flower. Unlike your little friend. I had to use quite a bit, and boy, did he put up a valiant fight.”

“Bo is a fighter.” Panic surged through Sade as he slowly approached the man standing behind the chair. “I hope you taught him a lesson.”

He let out an eager laugh that made Sade sick. “Let’s just say, he’s being trained in becoming a fisherman.”

“A fisherman?” Sade chuckled, sitting. “That dumb shit never fished once in his life.”

“Oh, well, he’s not really fishing.” His humored tone said he was either buying Sade’s game or playing another one far better. He was too sincere to tell. “He’s my little naughty Jonah. I’ll deal with him later, but for now…” Standing at Sade’s shoulder now, he drew a finger along the back of his neck. “…I’ll focus on you.”

“And Kane?” Sade clenched his eyes at the sensual glide of those fingers on his skin still. “He’s made my life very hard over the years.”

“You like the ink I see.”

The idea he was tracing his tattoo made him feel only a little better. “I like the pain.” Sade fought a shudder from his continued caress, gliding along the column of his neck.

The smell of sour sweat thickened the air as his breaths turned shallow. “You like pain.” His eager whisper trembled like he either hated that or loved it more than Sade wanted him to.

But whatever would keep Mercy safe. “Very much.”

The man’s fingers roamed up into Sade’s hair now, the act of a lover. “Did you know,” he whispered, curious. “That there is neither male… nor female… in the body of Christ?”

Sade grit his teeth as Abraham stroked over his lips. “I didn’t know.”

The large fingers left his mouth and moved to roam over his skull. “An innocent lamb you are. Once I cleanse you and purify your vessel, I think you will make a fine disciple. Would you like that?” He closed his hand over Sade’s throat. “Go on,” he whispered, his mouth at his ear now. “Tell me.”

A trickle of sweat rolled down Sade’s face. He knew there was only one right answer to give the predator shifting on restless feet as he assessed his prey. “I would love that, Father.”

“I see your body has been pierced.” He stroked his hand eagerly over Sade’s chest. “That is a grave sin, my son.”

The eager words said that was a turn on in some sick way. “I’m dirty, Father.” Sade barely managed to resist the full body shudder rolling through him.

“Indeed.” He slid a finger over his nipple. “I’ll inspect your body later. After the ceremony. I have many tools to heal you and seal all your wounds.”

Sade’s cock jerked at the idea of sexual pain just as he leaned to his ear again. An elbow to the face nearly overcame Sade in that second.

“This will be your first test as my disciple. A Master must be able to… trust his servant.” The sour breath brushed Sade’s cheek. “Don’t disappoint me, son. Please.”

Abraham’s beg held an orgasmic tone, shooting more sadistic desires through him—eye-gouging being the strongest and immediate. “I promise, Father.” He kept his voice to a whisper, not trusting it. His heart hammered furiously with the effort to appear calm as the man finally walked away, his steps hurried. “I’ll only be five minutes.”

#2

Oh shit! She looked around then hurried into the closet, falling into the back wall as she managed to shut one side of the closet. Oh God, were they both shut? She was so busted. What was she doing in there? She was… looking for… shoes? Extra pair of Crocs? And then panicked when he came in because… well she realized she should have asked.

She held her breath at seeing him sit on the bed, his back facing her. He laid down and she jerked more into the closet when his head was in her line of vision. If he looked, he’d see her. She clenched her eyes shut, hoping the sudden movement hadn’t made a noise.

Letting out a slow breath, she listened as he went to the bathroom. Oh God this was her chance, she could leave. The door opened and she glued herself back to the wall, one of her crutches clonking lightly on something. Oh God. The main light turned off, leaving only the bathroom one to shine into the room. She peeked through the slats as he sat on the bed again. She let out a careful breath wishing he’d go see Bo.

Oh shit. What if he tried to go see her?

He laid down, and her breath caught at seeing his naked chest. She let her breath go when he put a hand behind his head and draped his other across his midsection. She watched the rise and fall of his chest, her eyes catching the glow of white skin between the dark ink of his tattoos. Shit. How long would he take to fall asleep? She looked around in the closet, careful only to move her head. It was too dark to see anything even if there was something.

She jerked back to watching him at hearing him sigh. He seemed to be looking down at something. She lowered her body and angled her head and see. Oh my God. He was naked. His hand was on his cock, stroking slowly. Her heart slammed her chest as she gradually leaned right so that she could look out the bi-fold door that was partially open. Oh. My. God.

His chest and stomach moved with his gasps. He pulled his knees up and Mercy’s breath hitched in her chest when he let them fall open. Holy…. His enormous size sent heat biting her lower stomach and between her legs. She watched his muscles flex in his arms as he gripped himself and moved his hips in and out of his hold.

His head went back with a groan and her eyes locked on his open mouth and neck muscles standing out. Oh God, oh God. Her privates throbbed as she watched him in silent ecstasy.

“Fuck, yes,” he gasped, looking down at himself again. His hand moved quickly over himself, making the bed shake. Again his mouth opened wide, with a harsh hiss. She froze as his head turned toward her, then away in ecstasy. “Mercy,” he whispered, shooting panic through her. “Suck my cock,” he croaked. “Suck it, baby.” Her own mouth hung open in shock. He was talking to himself. Mercy’s privates were on fire as the bed shook more with his vigorous strokes. He looked down again, rolling his hips slowly then bucking fast. His head shot back, this time with teeth bared before his mouth flew open in a half roar.

Oh my God, oh my God. The sound and sight of his orgasm rocked her unlike anything she’d ever felt. She was officially addicted to it.

Her heart pounded so furiously in her body, she was sure he’d hear it as he gasped for air in the aftermath.

He slowly sat up, his body still heaving, back facing her. He stood and went to the bathroom. She watched his gorgeous body as he walked with a sleek grace, aching to touch him. What would he feel like under her fingers? Was he soft? Hard? Both? What would he feel like on her lips? She closed her eyes, never wanting something so much. She wanted to know. She had to know. Not remember, know.

Author Bio

I’m a husband, author, and Christian who loves writing tales—paranormal erotic romance, contemporary erotic romance, fantasy romance and dark erotica– about men who honor, cherish, and protect the women they love. Also stories that are real enough to form a sort of how-to bridge for the readers, teaching them “how to” add heat and passion to their marriages and relationships; teach them how to build life-long commitments–like I have with my own beautiful wife–and build strong families; all of which serve as a healthy foundation in society.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to teach them how to bring out the strength that exists within the men they call boyfriend or husband. Teach them how to dance out their fairytale romance in a world that isn’t kind to the happily ever afters we all hope to achieve.

You know, when I was younger, I submitted to my inner reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, the transformation made me into what I am today. A man that believes and endorses Forever Love. Something we could stand a lot more of in our times, don’t you think?

ker picAuthor Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of your seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up. We also used to put on performances by acting out stories. I wanted to become an actress from an early age so I could live out many roles but unfortunately I learned early on that my mind was too active…(I would end up wanting to change the script)
I would watch films or TV shows and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.  Website/ Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Tsu / Amazon / Newsletter

Title: Fervent

Fervent Coversynopsis (2)
I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us show no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.

Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.

What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe. I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me.

He’ll even die for me.

*NOTE TO READERS*

FERVENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part three of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read! Please begin with TORRENT and RAMPANT, otherwise, FERVENT might not make much sense.

Fervent (Condemned, #3)Fervent by Gemma James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Torrent and Rampant should be read PRIOR to Fervent.

At the end of Rampant, as Alex and Rafe are being taken by men unknown. Helpless and unable to help save Alex, Fervent picks up as they’re transported to a place that will test their inner strengths.

Their feelings for each other has them repeatedly trying to sacrifice themselves for the other. It’s quite admirable. In Fervent, Alex and Rafe both suffer at the hands of their captors. Still suffers from his memory loss and struggling constantly to remember the last eight years of his life, Rafe still does his best to try and save Alex.

Fervent was a first in a long time where the hero was portrayed in a way where he was both, hero and victim so equally. But even as a victim he was never seen as weak. And Alex’s character seemed to get stronger. Both have grown so much since the first novel.

Suspense, intrigue, drama and so much more. I couldn’t flip through the pages fast enough. And to find out at the end there it wasn’t over yet??? I about fell out of my seat. I can’t wait for August to find out how it all ends.

Keep a look out for Vagrant.

Empathy (Empathy, #1)Empathy by Ker Dukey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There are some books you feel honored to read before they’re released to the readers.  I have to say that Empathy is definitely one of them.  This book had the perfect combination of dark and light that the words and story just flowed through the pages.  Ker Dukey did an excellent job of bringing us a male lead you love to hate and a female lead you wish you could trade places with.

Blake and Melody were great characters.  Both strong with personality and they had such a great chemistry together.  Their attraction and feelings for each other were tangible to me as the reader.  I felt like I was in their shoes.  I felt their sadness and most of all…I felt their L♥VE for each other.  Blake leads a life of no feeling.  Living life one way and a secret life the other.  Until he sees Melody.  A quick glimpse at her strength affects him in ways he couldn’t have imagined.  Together they explore this attraction and have plenty of HOT steamy moments spent exploring each others’ bodies.

For the readers out there, I have to say…once you think you know where this story is headed, you’re surprised with a WTF moment. Blake and Melody not only enjoy their time together, but there’s a point where suffering seems all consuming for them.

Capture

Empathy had me hooked from the very first word and I couldn’t put it down until I finished.  Empathy is most definitely one of those books you neglect work, cooking and cleaning for.  I’m such a fan of Ker Dukey and each one of her new releases becomes a new favorite.  Absolutely 5 stars worthy!


TherapistTherapist by Jaden Wilkes

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

DELICIOUSLY TWISTED READ

Oh, Dr. Dane…Dr. Dane! You are one twisted man and I would love to book an appointment for an hour on your couch. What’s “normal” anyway? We all have our hang ups, right? I would like to volunteer for your experimental treatment. I’m sure I can come up with a trauma that warrants your special attention to cure me. 🙂

Jaden has an amazing talent of bringing us a dark and twisted character and presenting them in a way that we would love to enjoy some private time with them. Dr. Dane is no exception. Every one has their hangups, demons, issues and what have you, it’s what you do to manage it. Dr. Dane is a therapist and he’s well aware of his issues. He’s managed a way to help “cure” his patients by using them for his own depravity. When Mistress comes into the picture, Dr. Dane finds a whole new obsession and what comes after will blow you’re mind.

Therapist gives us gritty, raw, dirty and rough. I appreciated Alexander Dane’s inner monologue. I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. Other’s may consider him as a sick/perverse individual but I saw him as a humorous man with a unique sexual appetite. Reading about his treatment sessions resulted in a few occasional breaks of some alone time with my own personal bedside arsenal .

I loved this book and it’s originality. Thank you Jaden for your perverse imagination and twisted humor. Therapist is another reason why I love your work and am in awe of your talent.


Facade (Deception, #1)Facade by D.H. Sidebottom

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

BLOWN AWAY!!

DH Sidebottom and Ker Dukey did an abso-f*ckin-lutely fantastic job in this joint venture. Their writing styles were seamless and it was obvious they were sharing the same twisted mind for this dark & twisted tale.

Just when I thought I had it figured out??? BEEEEP…Wrong!! I was kept guessing with each turn of the page.

I couldn’t make up my mind whether I loved or hated Dante. Apparently I was in the same boat as Star. Having only bits & pieces of memory and comparing it to the present left Star and me guessing and trying to figure out what the hell was going on.

This was an AWESOME read and I HIGHLY recommend it.

*WARNING- this does have a cliffhanger but extremely worth it!!

Verum

SYNOPSIS
The truth shall set you free.

My name is Calla Price and I’m drowning.

My new world is a dark, dark ocean and I’m being pulled under by secrets.

Can I trust anyone? I don’t know anymore.

The lies are spirals. They twist and turn, binding me with their thorns and serpentine tongues. And just when I think I have it figured out, everything is pulled out from under me.

I’m entangled in the darkness.

But the truth will set me free.

It’s just ahead of me, so close I can touch it. But even though it shines and glimmers, it has glistening fangs and I know it will shred me.

Are you scared?

I am.

Excerpt
Together, we float to the surface, still intertwined.  We break through the top and I suck in a breath and Dare is staring into my eyes.
There’s tension here, but not the bad kind.  It’s the kind that ignites you, the kind that intoxicates you, the kind that once you taste it, you’ll crave for the rest of your life.
I’ve forgotten that I was going to be careful, that I was going to reject him on every level.
All I can remember, all I can focus on, is how veryalive Dare DuBray is making me feel in this moment, how alive he always makes me feel.
For a girl who has been surrounded by death her entire life, this is a very big deal.
“I’m a little afraid of you,” I blurt honestly, and Dare still has his arms around me.  Our treading water motions keep our legs rubbing together, the friction still there.
Hot,
Hot,
Hotter.
Dare smiles, but there is no humor in it.
“Good.”
“Why?”
My honesty makes me seem innocent, but I don’t know how to play games.  I have no experience with the opposite sex at all.
“Because that makes you feel something.”
But he’s hesitant now and he looks away. There’s something he wants to say, it’s balanced on the tip of his tongue, but he swallows it.
“What is it?” I ask softly.  “Just tell me.”
He wants to, I can tell. His secrets are killing him. He just wants to be normal, he’s just acting out a role.
I don’t know why I feel like I know this.  It’s just there, suddenly resting on my heart.
“You don’t have to be someone you’re not,” I murmur quietly.  His dark eyes snap up to mine and he pulls his hands away. There’s something in his eyes now, something guarded, and our easy afternoon has come to an end.
“What makes you think I am?” he snaps. “Pretending to be something I’m not, I mean.”
I’ve somehow annoyed him, and I don’t answer because I don’t know what to say.
“I’m not being someone I’m not, Calla,” he says coolly as he strides from the water.  “I’m being who you need me to be.”
I’m utterly confused, and I’m dripping wet.
“We don’t have towels,” is all he says when I follow him. My clothing soaks up the water and it is a very cold ride back home.
Dare doesn’t say another word and I leave him in the garage.
I don’t see him at dinner, and I don’t see him the rest of the night.
But as I lay in bed around midnight, I see his car leave the garage.
I don’t see him come home, and I’m awake for half the night waiting.
I have no idea where he goes when he slips away.
Somehow, I think he wants it that way.
There’s a fork in the road and even though I see it, I can’t avoid it.
One road goes left, one goes right, and neither of them end well. 
I feel it in my bones,
In my bones,
In my bones.
I sing a song of nonsense, and it sings back.  The notes echo and twist in the air, and I swallow them whole.
“Come out,” I call behind me, because I know they’re there.  
I can’t see them, but they’re always watching. 
Eyes appear, blood red, and they blink once, twice, three times.
“I can see you,” I announce and there’s a growl and then I’m crushed beneath the dark, beneath the weight, beneath the oppression.
“You don’t scare me,” I lie.
There’s savagery here, there’s grace. 
But above all, there’s oblivion and no matter what I do, I will be sucked into it. 
I know it.
I feel it.
I’m crazy.
And it doesn’t matter.
I’m the rabbitrabbitrabbit and I’ll never be free.

Don’t miss the first book in the Nocte Trilogy…

Ker Dukey's Dark Desires' Takeover Tour

Empathy Sale Graphic_012015

ABOUT KER DUKEY
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where i love interacting with my readers.

Keela Teaser #2
“Hey,” Alec murmured in my ear. “Is everything okay?”
No, not at all.
“Yeah... I'm just stressed with the move,” I replied, playing it off like it was nothing.
Alec placed his hands on my arms and gently rubbed up and down. “Are you sure that's all?”
I nodded my head.
“Keela,” Alec began. “Talk to me, what's wrong?”
Everything.
“Nothin', I'm fine,” I assured him.
His silence spoke volumes, so I decided to give him a little piece of what I was thinking.
“I've just never moved into a house with another person before, especially not another person who is my fiancé. It's sinkin' in that we're for real. I was convinced for a long time that you wantin' me was some kind of fluke. I was expectin' you to realise that you could have anyone, so why settle for me? Then you'd up and walk out.”
Alec turned me to face him and leaned his head down so he could press his forehead against mine. “I don't know what else I can do to make you realise you're it for me. I don't see anyone but you. You're my life, Keela. I wish you knew just how much I love you and how lucky I am that you picked me. You don't know how beautiful you are, and I hope you never realise it because if you do, you'll realise you can do better than my sorry ass, then you'll up and leave me.”
Yeah, right.
“Stop it,” I mumbled and tried to pull back.
“No,” Alec stated firmly and held me still. “You are beautiful. You are perfect to me. You are my life. You are never going to convince me that I am worthy of you. Kitten, I love you so much it hurts. Please realise that.”
Oh, Christ.
I was about to cry. Again.
I quickly lifted my hands to my face and covered it completely.
“I hate you!” I said then burst into tears.
I hated everything.
I had this unbelievably beautiful person both inside and out, and he wanted me by his side for life, yet here I was doubting whether or not we were moving too fast. I wanted to be with Alec for the rest of my life, I swear I did... so why the hell did everything we were doing feel like it was too fast?
Alec took my emotional state as a good sign and put his arms around me and cuddled me to him. He thought I was overwhelmed by his profession of love, and I was, but what he didn't realise was that I was close to breaking down and revealing what was really wrong with me.
“Cry baby,” he murmured to me.
I lightly chuckled and pulled back. “I'm fine, it's just the stress of movin' that has me so teary.”
Alec nodded his head and kissed my forehead. “Let's go get a start on boxing and speed this day up. What do you say?”
I forced a smile. “I say lead the way.”
