Stood up by her boyfriend, she goes home with a woman… 

Straight-laced coed Angie has never felt daring enough to…experiment. Until tonight. The skin around Heather’s lips is soft, unlike the stubble Erik lets grow in, and the night unfolds like an erotic dream, tapping into an unexplored part of Angie’s body and mind. 

But Heather’s seduction turns into a nightmare when Angie wakes up tied to the bed and is told she can’t leave. Alternately seduced and tormented by her lover-turned-captor, Angie is pulled ever deeper into a twisted world of pain-for-pleasure and voyeuristic exploits. As the stakes rise, both women give into a desire for connections neither has had, and Angie’s struggle to escape becomes a bigger dilemma: Would she leave if she could? 

Winner of the Golden Palm Contest for New Adult Romance, this erotic thriller dares to explore the darker side of our fantasies and their sometimes unintended consequences.

My Thoughts:

The author was very kind and send me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

Angie has been stood up by her boyfriend so, when the woman she’s been staring at all night comes up to her and buys her a drink she doesn't decline. After a few drinks she decides to go home with her something she has never done. They have an amazing night, but when Angie wakes up to go home she is met with a completely different version of the woman she met at the bar; as she tries to leave she begins to feel dizzy and faints when she wakes up again she is tied to a bed and her lover turned captor refuses to let her go. 

This was the first erotic thriller I've ever read and it was very enjoyable and creepy, but I did have some minor problems with it. I'm going to start with what I enjoyed and work our way to what I didn't like so much. I really liked the LGBT in this book, the way Angie was finding herself and getting to know this new part of her that she was never brave enough to explore by herself. I also really liked the way Heather and Angie took care of each other of course when Heather wasn't being a complete psycho. The one thing that bothered me the most was that Angie didn't fight heather much when she found out she was holding her against her will, it’s like she immediately felt sorry for her captor and started making excuses for her behavior and the reason she was keeping her there. Also Hannah hit me with a twist that I was not expecting and I really liked that, it explained so much of Hannah's behavior, but then she hit me with another twist in the ending that left me with some unanswered questions. Overall it was a very enjoyable read that kept me in the edge of my seat until the very end and Hannah's writing keeps you turning the pages.
