This book is part of a dark erotic fiction series and may disturb some readers.
What if a man could command you to do anything and you couldn’t make yourself say no?
Some people go through life without encountering evil. Zorie is not one of the lucky ones. As a teenager, she escaped a kidnapper. Now she’s stronger, smarter, and she avoids the wolves.
Until she meets Reuben and her avoidance strategy is chaff in the wind. He’s a collector and a mesmer, with the ability to control certain women at will. Zorie is to be his remote-controlled plaything.
She's been collected.
Absolute power? Absolutely terrifying.
Two men are the key to Zorie freeing herself from Reuben.
Grimm Heller’s reasons are hidden in his past and his soul.
Mister Black’s reasons are simpler. He wants her for his own to make her into a weapon.
No matter which way she turns, is she simply choosing a different evil?
Warning: Graphic violence, graphic sex, capture themes, BDSM themes.
Wow, this was not what I was expecting. A whole new take on control, and it was GREAT!
From the blurb:
“What if a man could command you to do anything and you couldn’t make yourself say no?”
And that is exactly what happens! Zorie is considered a “rare breed”, as she is able to be controlled by certain men, who also possess “powers”. But what happens when the man she can’t say no is both disturbingly HOT and makes you feel for her at the same time?
There was so much going on at the beginning of this book it was hard to take it all in—in a good way. Personally, it took me a bit to get into the story because my brain was trying to process how this concept worked. Once I let go, I was immediately catapulted into the story and was able to see things through Zorie, and almost combusted, just as she combusting on the pages.
You must have an open mind to be able to enjoy any book, but I believe that to be extra true when you throw in elements not typically associated with humans, such as mind control. If you are open-minded, and love a good, damn hot read—and maybe some graphic violence, graphic sex, capture themes, and BDSM themes—then you NEED to do yourself a favor and READ THIS BOOK!
I can’t wait to see where the next book will take me and I can only hope you all do yourselves that favor and buy this book!

Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night. When others are writing bad men doing bad things, you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.
