Review: Torn by Melody Anne

39785302

I understand how adultery happens. I know, your first thought is “Of course you can — you’re a cheater.” That’s true, but that’s certainly not the whole story.
That’s always what a cheater says, right? Once again, you are correct. If you’re looking for a typical romance, then run — run far.
After ten years of marriage I realized my husband barely touched me anymore. There was the obligational monthly sex, but even that was starting to fizzle. I was twenty-nine and he was thirty-two. We should’ve been doing it like bunnies, night and day, or at least a couple times a week, to be more realistic. But that hadn’t happened in years.
It didn’t hit me until I’d been gone a couple of weeks. Then when I got home we both fell asleep that night, me snuggled up against his back like we always slept. But that’s all we did. We just … slept.
No big deal you say?
Wrong. It was a very big deal.
It was the night I realized we had a real problem.
I have a choice to make, but I’m so torn. Do I stay where I’m at or do I go with Kaden, with the man who’s showing me I still have a lot to live for …

MY REVIEW

Torn by Melody Anne
Mason, Miranda, & Kaden
ALL THE FEELS & EMOTIONS
5 Stars

I’m a huge Melody Anne fan and I’ve followed her for quite some time now. I lost my Dad around the same time she lost hers and I can totally relate to “Daddy’s girl” complex and how hard it is to comprehend that he’s not there for me to call on. This story is such an emotional rollercoaster and the feels it brought to me are immense. The relationships that form and fall apart are just about enough to push anyone over the edge. I commend her for putting herself out there like this and her heart down on these pages. I guarantee you will fall in love with each and every one of these characters!

Miranda is a complex character, but not unlike most of us and our daily struggles. I found myself relating to her in more ways than one. She loves her husband, but she’s not in love with him. They started as friends and somehow I think that’s where they should have stayed, but no one can tell you differently when you think you’re in love. The trials and tribulation Miranda faces throughout the first installment of this serial are bold and heart-wrenching. I can’t wait to see where this goes and how her life is going to change!

Mason is hard to figure out. He doesn’t have a lot of dialogue and the storyline doesn’t let you in on too many things going on with him, but I feel confident we’ll know more soon!

Same goes for Kaden. We know his position in Miranda’s life, we know he’s hot as heck, but what we don’t know is his past. Why is he the way he is? What does he want from Miranda? How far is he willing to go to get what he wants? And what is it he wants? Hells bells Melody, you’re killing me here!

The supporting character cast is small and I feel like only mentioning two of them. Audrey is Miranda’s good friend and a heck of a girl. She’s Miranda’s sounding board and voice of reason. She doesn’t judge or frown upon Miranda’s actions, she embellish on them, making what has happened seem not so bad and justified! The other person is Miranda’s Dad. This guy is the best!! The best Dad, the best friend, the best everything! He’s always there for her and also does not judge her. He simply stands by her and supports her decisions without hesitation. Reading his parts made me miss my Dad so much as I could feel my heart breaking feeling my own Dad on these pages and in these words and I’m sure Melody was typing through tears while she wrote about him.

This story is fantastic! I have fallen in love with this storyline and these outstanding characters. Characters that are so powerful, I found myself closely relating to each and every one of them on some level. The dialogue flows and the pacing is perfect. This is a sort of cliffy, but doesn’t leave you completely hanging. Stay tuned for more Mason, Miranda, and Kaden!

Review: Forever Lost by Melody Anne

51p8ifftdgl-_sy346_

Mary is gone … or so it seems. But nothing is ever that easy.

There is something about Dalton that calls to Elena, but she also knows he’s not who he appears to be. She resists him at the same time that she hungers for what only he can give her.

But just when Elena thinks her life has come together, that everything might be okay, her world falls apart again when she learns the truth of what really happened to her so many years before and learns of who so viciously betrayed her.

The only place left for Elena to go is back into Dalton’s arms. But he doesn’t want to hold her and tell her everything will be okay. He wants to teach her how to deal with the inner pain. And the way he teaches her is in a world she could never have imagined existed.

Will she let go … or will she become someone else.

This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.

MY REVIEW

Forever Lost by Melody Anne
Elena & Dalton
SHE’S GETTING THERE…
5 Stars

So, this is the follow up to Stolen Innocence. The first book was freaking amazing and FREE if you’re wondering. This installment shows us more of the Elena/Dalton dilemma and more to the point, how Elena is handling everything Dalton is throwing at her. You get ’em girl!

Elena was thoroughly pissing me off in this one. I mean how much does she intend to take? How many times can she be let down and go back for more? Apparently a lot! I still think she’s tough as nails, but when it comes to Dalton her body has a mind of it’s own. Backbone girl, get it!

Dalton is an asshole to say the least. I think he may be dealing with his own demons, but who cares…he could be nicer to our girl! I hate 90% of the shit he does to Elena in this one, but strangely I have high hopes for him.

Some new characters are introduced and I’m on the fence in if I like them or not. This Darcy, the one who Dalton seems to admire, she’s kind of scaring me a bit. We’ll see if she actually does Elena any good. Not holding my breath.

So, again, Melody gives us an Erotic story without any really bad words. The pacing is good, the storyline absurdly dark, and the characters are phenomenal. Diving into New Desires NOW!

Review: Stolen Innocence by Melody

28794952

Every master was once a student – every woman was once a child …

What makes a person forget their entire identity? What makes them become someone else? What makes them desire pain … control … and ultimately pleasure? It’s not anything that happens overnight, over even in a few weeks. Tragedy beyond what a human can possibly imagine will forever alter Mary’s future.

Mary’s life is boring, conservative and typical. She wants adventure, thrills and so much more. But she will soon learn to be careful what to wish for when she’s taken against her will and thrust into the twisted world of a powerful man who doesn’t care if she lives or dies.

When Mary starts becoming Elena, she does find a savior, but is he truly the person who will protect her, or will he be the one to escort her straight into the pits of hell?

Forgetting who she is or where she belongs, she learns she can trust no one, rely on only herself, and fall further than she ever thought possible. She will become someone else and the cycle will begin. She will become the person who will eventually change the life of so many others. Some might say the change is good, the violence is necessary. And some will cry for this tragedy that should have been stopped.

Just when you think you know how it all came about, how it will end, you will be floored again by who can be trusted … and who can’t.

Note from the author:

This book isn’t anything like what I’ve written before. I had a dream, the opening scene of this book, actually. And I woke up and lay there for a while, and still couldn’t push it away, so I got up, wrote the first chapter. Then I lay back down and was back out of bed within fifteen minutes, where I gave up on sleep and sat at my computer all night and all the next day until my eyes wouldn’t stay open anymore. Then for the next week, all I did was eat and sleep (minimally) and the first draft was born. I was so emotionally drained from it, I put it away for a month, and then came back to it and went back into the world of Elena.

My question was, what makes someone enter into a lifestyle of BDSM? What makes them enjoy pain? Enjoy being degraded? Then I realized, it’s not a matter of enjoyment necessarily. It’s a matter of your world spinning out of control. And this is a way to ground yourself. Elena has become so special to me. The first book is tragic and I cried several times while writing it. The second book, she starts to find herself, and in the third book … well, the third book leaves your mouth hanging open. I hope you enjoy this journey with me. It’s been an emotional one.

This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.

MY REVIEW

Stolen Innocence by Melody Anne
SMOKIN’ HOT READ
5 STARS

So, this is one of those “dirty” Melody Anne books. She has a way of making them so freakin’ dirty without using any naughty words… seriously. I’ve never read any other author that can do that. It’s definitely for the 18+ crowd. I’m going to go as far as people with triggers from rape, abuse, and anything related, don’t read it! It’s unquestionably a dark, gritty read. So you people who one stared it because it was “too dark” and “degrading” Holy hell people, you were warned in the synopsis for cripesake… Does this ring a bell???????? “This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.” “Explicit scenes of abuse.” Duh… you no like dark, you no read book… but don’t read it when you knew it was dark then give it a bad review because you don’t like dark books… You people make my ass twitch!

Mary is you typical 16 going on 17 year old. She’s kidnapped and brainwashed to believe she’s Elena the sex slave. She’s one tough cookie and for good reason. The men “grooming” her for the Master are vicious to say the least. She learns quickly that keeping her mouth shut keeps her from getting beat.

I’m still not sure how much the other characters are going to play a part in the next installments so I won’t mention them. I will say this, not everyone is who them seem and I’ve deemed most untrustworthy. Be careful who you put your faith in.

This is a fast paced, action packed thriller that is extremely sinister. Mmmmm, my kind of book! It’s an extremely gripping story with powerful characters and boat loads of tension. This is not, I repeat NOT for the faint of heart. Onto the next book, Forever Lost

Relinquish Control has just opened its doors in Seattle, and already we are not shy for customers.

Relinquish Control is an exclusive escort service catering to the most distinguished customers, from business magnates to foreign royalty. This proven and well-established international business offers an elite selection of women who are ready and willing to attend to your every need with no questions asked.

Confidentiality is our special obligation.

Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age twenty-four. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother; the medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had, and the state then took away her brother, now age fourteen. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home.

When she’s approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he’s been placed in.

Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it’s nothing but a façade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him.
When he and his two brothers were six, eight and ten, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they’ve tried to forget, leaving each of them guarded and unwilling to give their trust to anyone other than each other. No one is allowed to have their hearts. The brothers would never think of letting down their guard with anyone else, certainly not with a woman.
Follow Blake and Jewell’s journey and see if they can find a happily ever after…

This final chapter in the Anderson family will leave you laughing, crying, and on a roller coaster of emotion as you once again step back into the world of the Anderson’s.

Family always comes first to the Multi-Billionaire’s of Seattle

MY REVIEW:

Holy EFF YOU SEE KAY!!!

I… am… speechless!!!! Sorry to see it end because I’ll never get enough of the Anderson’s, but Wowza…. What an ending it was… People, if you haven’t read any of these… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR… The first one used to be free (I think) and the rest are like three bucks…. Total steel!!!

I guess you could say this is Kinsey and Austin’s story, but there’s so much more… it’s also Joseph and Katherine’s story too and if you want to count it… Ester and George’s book too… It’s like getting three books for the price of one.. It’s about 374 pages (kindle version) and let me tell you… if you do the math, that’s like .007 a page… sheesh… how much cheaper could you get it!!! AND 007… ooo-lah-lah!!!

This book deals with so much turmoil while dishing up a ton of hot steamy sex, funny antics, and love from all around!!! Loved how we were transported back to finally find out how Joseph and Katherine wound up together… what an exciting and touching story in itself!! Cracks me up how Austin can’t take the fact that Kinsey is the only girl to turn him down and tell him no… really makes for a great chase and awesome, over the top, steamy hot hot hot hospital closet sex!!!!! Never thought scrubs could be a turn on!!! Bwahahaha!!!! Love the ribbing Austin gets from his family regarding settling down… those brothers and cousins AND cousin’s wives can really stick it to him… LOL!!!

As long as this book is… it only took me a day to read it… that’s how effortless it was to read… my kindle was on fire as I couldn’t stop myself from flying through the pages at an alarming rate!!! One of my favorite quotes is, “When you find your true love, you run to them. Don’t walk, don’t hide, you take them in your arms and never let them go!” or “I don’t think you have to worry about a pregnancy, because right now my body is certainly a hostile environment, and if your seed comes anywhere near my uterus, laser beams will strike the little swimmers down!” Pure genius Miss Anne!!!

Again… 5 stars for one of my favorite authors…
