Review - Altered State by Ella Dominguez

Title: Altered State
Author: Ella Dominguez
Release Date: May 27, 2015

An erotic psychological thriller. Stand-alone novel. 

Warning: Contains detailed sexual encounters & profanity. Intended for readers aged 18+. 

Beauty lies in the truth. 

A wife with a thirst for revenge desperately trying to save her marriage while hiding in the shadows of her memories... A woman with questionable intentions, a sketchy past and a taste for unavailable men... A husband in love with his wife, a man mesmerized by his mistress, a willing hostage caught between two obsessive women. 

A murderer, a liar and a cheater. You think you know which one is which, but nothing is as it seems. After all, everyone wears a mask. Some are just better at hiding the truth than others. 

Lies will be exposed. Truths revealed. Blood shed. All in the name of something far more potent than love and much more toxic.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good mindfuck book. LOVE THEM. Bang by E.K. Blair was one of my favorites, but this book took that fucking to a whole new level. 

When I read Altered State, I was not, by any means, expecting to be tossed around like a rag doll in a playful puppy’s mouth. I was not expecting to have a ridiculous theory about how it would play out, only to have said ridiculousness sort of come true but in reverse, out of the outfield, to hit me in the face in the batter’s box. 

I don’t want to say anything about the book because I don’t want to give anything away, but I will tell you that the characters were awesome. Zeke, the male lead, is dominant, hot and WOW. I kind of hated him for a bit, but I would definitely love to see him or another character like him in more books! There were a couple of times I was confused as to what had caused something else, but all my questions and confusions were cleared up at the end. 

Did I like this book? Is the sky blue? Do kids make messes? All really silly questions. I LOVED this book, and I cannot wait to read more by Ella Dominguez and see what other twisted things she can do to me!
~ Review by Devlynn

A full-time mom, wife and healthcare worker, Ella was born and raised in a sexually repressed, strict Christian household in the bible belt of the USA. This upbringing and repression contributed to her wicked imagination and writing has been her only outlet for her sexual fantasies. Finally at the sexually mature age of forty, she mustered up enough courage to share her naughty thoughts and put pen to paper. She sincerely hopes to find her niche in writing erotica in all forms, be it romance or paranormal. 

"I don't consider myself an author. I consider myself an avid reader above all else, and someone who simply writes the stories that the characters in my head tell me to."
