The Broken Series by Kol Anderson
These two books are not sweet and fuzzy romance. This is dark erotica, heavy BDSM, Torment. It’s been a while since I’ve read this type of book – mostly because they became predictable. They were too dark, you never felt a connection with the villain/s or the torture was so unrelenting that all glimmer of hope was extinguished. You were left no reason to continue caring.
So these books had me breaking all sorts of rules. I got the first book, The Prisoner, and took a peek, I was just going to read a few paragraphs to get a sense of the authors style… next thing I know it’s 3 am – and I’m scrambling to find the next episode. THIS IS A SERIES! I grab book two, Hell and Beyond and read straight through to dawn. And I’m chomping at the bit for more.
This author is completely new to me and I found his writing style gritty and evocative and erotic and amazing. He isn’t dabbling in BDSM… the man know’s the psychological triggers behind it, and shows it in all its disturbing splendor.
Every time I’m certain I have a fix on who’s pulling the strings or how much I loathe Vince… I find myself hesitating with my final judgement. On one hand the torture is unrelenting, but you’d get a glimpse, an insight to keep you plodding along… hoping. It’s beautiful, how the writer’s lured me into feeling stirrings of sympathy and empathy for Vince.
Aaron… oh Aaron. I can only imagine how easy it would have been to give in and write Aaron as weak and mindless. Not done here. His inner dialogue… fantastic.
I can say, without hesitation that I highly recommend these books to those who are prepared for the dark content. Rape/Non-Con/Torture
