Erotica, Suspense, Dark

Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after. This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge... And revenge can only lead to one thing. Tyler He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him. His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I’m falling in love. Dean I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn’t take much more of her. She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left. She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I'm struggling to word this review, and if you follow my reviews, you'll know I'm not usually stuck for words! The blurb is correct in saying this is not a fairy tale, and it certainly isn't a HEA, but thats not why I am struggling. I just cannot, for the life of me, decide if I liked this book or not. Its a different tale, which is ALWAYS a good thing, has a twist I did not quite see coming til it was revealed, which is also good, actually TWO twists, keeping me hanging on, and a ending that is VERY different to the norm. Again, a good thing. Its very well written, in the first person, flipping between the two main characters, Tyler and Dean (bar one small chapter, that's someone else but not say who) Each chapter is headed to define the change, and there are no changes mid chapter, one chapter/one character. This is good! I found no typos or speliing/editing errors, always a good thing! It just did not do it for me. AND I DON'T KNOW WHY!! So, here's what I did like: the ending, different, not what you would expect. the plot, revenge is such a difficult thing to enact. Dean, he was hard and mean and he bloody well knew it! Tyler, she wasnt a airy-fairy girl. She knew what she wanted, and she wanted Dean. If you like your books with some bite (and there is a fair bit of that!) a plot that keeps you hanging, and some rather questionable reasons for what they are doing, go for it. If you like sweet fluffy romances, THIS AINT FOR YOU! Filed on my darker/grittier shelf, and the over 18 shelf, (rough sex and some rather gruesome "chatting"!) but NOT on the romance shelf, cos it's not. Thank you, to Ms Roberts for her copy. I'm just sorry I can't love it like every one else. 3 stars

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

Jaimie Roberts was born in London, but moved to Gibraltar in 2001. She is married with two sons, and in her spare time, she writes.

In June 2013, Jaimie published her first book, Take a Breath, with the second released in November 2013. With the reviews, Jaimie took time out to read and learn how to become a better writer. She gets tremendous enjoyment out of writing, and even more so from the feedback she receives.
