Down and Dirty

Shocking, unrelenting, and very well written. Be sure to pick this up – though be well aware of the Trigger Warnings gifted to the narrative. THEY ARE IMPORTANT!

What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

Beautiful.
Gorgeous.
Slut.
Whore.

I’ve been called all of these, except my true name—a secret I’ve never learned.

I was groomed for a life of captivity; brought up as a slave for the exclusive club, Exotique. I’m desired for my body and thirsted after for my addictive blood. I’m stripped and restrained while male after male acts out his twisted desires.

I’m constantly at war with myself while my inner beasts battle for dominance.
The succubus half of me craves these sessions. She longs for the toxic mix of pleasure and pain, feasting on the release of others.
My phoenix half lies dormant. She’s a silent presence who shudders at the crack of a whip, and shies away from the cruel hands of my handlers.

While I suffer through countless degrading sessions, somewhere far away a trio of Phoenix warriors are sanctioned by their King to find and rescue me. Will they succeed? Or will one of my handlers finally take a session too far?

Their race is dying, but so am I.

Bound for Blood is book one in the Feathers and Fire series. It is a Dark, Paranormal, Reverse Harem romance. The final book ends with an HEA. Expect dark elements and explicit scenes.. If such scenes might trigger or offend you, please do not buy this book. 

Thoughts

Oh wow. Wow wow wow! This book shocked me, shook me and hooked me. The FMC is stronger than you can imagine – or SHE can even imagine. Contrary to my normal book fare, this novel offers a true damsel in distress scenario – but it’s a gut wrenching one that will wreck you, and somehow shows her to be anything but a damsel in distress. Oh, She needs saving, but there is a fierce innocence in her eventual freedom – and a courage that belies the circumstance she literally grew up in.

Warning!! This book is incredibly sexually explicit, detailing moments of non-consent, torture, bondage and true rape. Be aware of this BEFORE you pick it up! And know, that despite these inclusions in this tale, the author in no way, shape or form, romanticizes such actions. Instead, they show the monster beneath the mask.
