◄◄ Goodreads Blurb ►►
She’s scared and broken, but soon she’ll be mine.
I was only a boy when I saw my mother murdered in front of me. That does something to a man. It turns him hard, cold and makes him an addict for control. In all things.
My desires are dark and what I’m interested in is far more than simple submission.
I’ve been waiting for someone as broken as me. Someone who truly needs to give up complete control and rely on me to take away her pain.
And then I found her.
Katia. My kitten.
The moment I laid eyes on her gorgeous face, full lips and seductive curves, she stole the air from my lungs.
It’s been so long since I’ve wanted something so intensely. She devours my every waking moment, teasing me with just a taste.
She’s stronger than she knows, but haunted by a past that won’t loosen its grip on her.
She’s refused my collar and I know why.
The last one she wore wasn’t by choice.
But this time she’s going to beg for it.I can give her what he didn’t – true domination and trust. I’ll own her pleasure, her happiness and she can sate my desire for complete control.
I only need her to give me a chance.
Just one chance to buy her.
The moment she agrees and steps on that stage at the auction, she’s mine. But she doesn’t have to worry, I’ll care for all her desires.
*Sold is a full-length standalone DARK romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger
◄◄ My Thoughts ►►
Wow! I really enjoyed this one! It’s sexy, emotional, and provided me one the funniest moments I’ve ever shared with husband.
Here’s the breakdown: Isaac provides security for Club X. He periodically dabbles in play, but longs to have a submissive of his own. He’s a Sadist, but only uses pain as a means to achieve pleasure. He’s a Dominant Master who craves a slave of his own.
“My taste are specific. A Slave. I crave the power being a Master allows me, and the desire to control and provide her every need.”
Katia is a survivor. She’s experienced horrific trauma, but she refuses to let it beat her down. Due to her past, she has very specific needs. Club X and specifically, Isaac, may be just what she needs.
What I enjoyed:
The emotional aspect of the story. Initially, I felt sorry for Katia. That feeling grew into empathy. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to experience the pain she’s dealt with. Because of that, I was rooting for her…hard. I couldn’t wait to see how the story unfolded so she could finally find true happiness again. I was completely invested.
Isaac is sexy, giving, patient, and nurturing. He understands Katia and her specific needs and endeavors to be everything she needs. While I enjoyed many aspects of his character as well as his actions, he definitely has some stalker tendencies 🙂 Overall, he’s a very intriguing character.
The Steam Factor of this book is off the charts. That’s always a plus for a romance lover! One scene in particularly lead to a very interesting conversation with the hubster. He’s still trying to figure out the logistics. Read the book and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about!!
Overall, Sold was a very solid read. I’m really looking forward to continuing with this series. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy, BDSM and semi-dark reads.
