Warning! This is not your everyday fall in love romance. This book contains disturbing situations, strong language, graphic, sexual content, some forced, some not. If it's your happily ever after love story that you are looking for, you should probably move on. If you are up for the ride, stick around and it may just turn into a love story after all.
Morgan starts her life in a bad situation, she doesn't really know what she wants out of life. She's never had anyone to look up to, or help guide her in the right direction. She had it rough, and never dreamed that it could get worse, however she finds that it can, and does.
She learns what real hell is when she meets the husband that she doesn't want to marry, but isn't given a choice. Can she escape? She can, and does only to wake up and find herself right back at square one
***Some slight spoilers***
The warning signs in the blurb are correct, this isn't your everyday romance. If you like a darker love story with disturbing situations, strong language and far from vanilla sexual encounters then this book is for you.
When I first picked up this book I was shocked to see how many pages it had, had to know why it was so long. Once I started reading I was hooked.
This is the dark tale of Morgan aka Riley an 18year old virgin sold by her alcoholic father to a man named Drew on her eighteenth birthday for $30,000.
Morgan was taken from the trailer she called home to Drew's huge mansion where she was forced to marry him. She doesn't need to work, cook or clean she has expensive clothes, a wardrobe to die for, she has someone taking care of her every need. She has just turned 18 and otherwise known as trailer trash. She hasn't had an easy life, what more could a deprived girl ask for right?
Drew is a handsome, sexy, rich, dominating man so why would a guy like him be interesting in having a girl like Morgan as his wife?
When he was around Drew was very mean to Morgan, she learnt the hard way. Morgan was a slave for Drew a piece of arm candy in the public eye but a sex slave behind closed doors. If Morgan stepped out of line or didn't act as the perfect wife in public she was punished with a spanking and sexual instruments, she would be sexually and physically abused by so called husband later. She had to endure him humiliating her and put up with his erratic kinky behaviour.
The thing was Morgan actually liked some of the things Drew did to her. She hated the internal struggle with herself, she wanted to hate what he was doing but her body betrayed her and was aroused by some of it.
6 years later she finally had a plan in place, she steals some of Drew's money and runs away from him.
She is no longer Morgan Kelley, she is now Riley Murphy on her way to a small town called Misty Bay. Morgan, no Riley is ready to start her new life.
It's not easy at first Riley is constantly looking over her shoulder scared and wondering when Drew is going to find her.
She finally starts to settle down and start living her normal life. That's when she meets the town sheriff Dawson. He is kind and sweet to Riley, what starts out as friendship turns into a beautiful relationship. When their relationship starts to develop we get answers as to how dark Riley's life was when she was Morgan. These flashbacks are not pretty.
When Dawson and Riley's relationship goes to the next level, she experiences what making love is like, she has never felt like this before or that making love to a man could feel this way. She has never felt love by anyone before. Having sex with Dawson starts bringing back some urges of things she wants him to do to her, she asks Dawson but he refuses, he is as vanilla as they come. He accepts Riley the way she is, broken, but he wants nothing more then to help, for her to open up and slowly she does. Riley is living life and its just perfect.
That is until Riley goes to Vegas...
After getting in an accident she comes to with no memory. The face she wakes up to is none other then her husband Drew, she is Morgan Kelley.
She doesn't remember anything and is a bit hesitant to go home with the man she has come to know as her husband Drew. Morgan is not the sad, depressed, weak girl she once was, she has spunk and is a little feisty. Morgan starts to fall in love with her husband for the first time and for the first time he falls in love with her too.
Just as Morgan and Drew are falling in love with one another memories start to come back to her in flashes. Who is Dawson, who is Riley, its not until she sees Dawson again that her memory comes flooding back to her.
Drew is not the man he once was she loves this new Drew and she is torn between him and Dawson. Morgan loves Drew and Riley loves Dawson.
Yes you will be frustrated with her at times and you will want to shake and slap her to wake up but at the same time how can she choose between these two men who both have her heart.
Should she love Drew, why does she love him after everything he has done to her. This new side of Drew is caring, sweet, loving and there is so much passion between them.
Should she stay with Dawson who is the safe option, he is loving caring sweet, thoughtful and shown her love like no other has.
Why isn't love simple, why is it so hard to choose?
Love isn't always simple.
There are twists you won't see coming but this dark journey of Morgan/Riley, Drew and Dawson is worth the ride. I enjoyed this book and once I started reading found it hard to put down. There are a few grammatical errors but nothing to bad and easy to look past.
I am looking forward to reading Drew's POV!
Writing is more than a passion for me. I write adult books, romance and erotica. I did recently try my hand at a young adult romance, but because of the gutter that my mind seems to fall into. It quickly went into rated R mode. I reside in Ohio. I love living in Ohio, except maybe the cold winters, and the snow, well maybe the hot summers too. Ah hell, I hate Ohio.
I love to push my limits in writing, fuel the senses and emotions of my readers. I have some great supporters and love them all dearly.
