I liked this erotically edgy, raw, dark story and I thought it was told exceptionally well...though very "wordy". That is...the narration and dialogue are vastly unbalanced. A LOT of narration to the point it can get tedious. But I get it..the author is laying a foundation of events. But it became too much. Anyway, Harley and Hannah are identical twins...Harley is corrupt...Hannah is good. When Harley is murdered, she leaves a trail of corruption behind that Hannah mistakenly is blamed for. Hannah goes into hiding after several family members begin to mysteriously die.
Jackson Hawke used to be honorable and ethical before being betrayed and framed by Harley Mason. His life has been ruined. He's become a criminal. Now all he knows is hate, rage and revenge and he vows to have it. Except Harley's dead and Hannah is still reaping the brunt of Harley's sins. All Jackson Hawke knows is that he hates Harley with a red hot passion and he's determined to make her suffer.
Book #2; DEEP DOMINATION 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Even though Hannah goes willingly with Jackson for a one million $$ fee, she figures out quickly that Jackson thinks she's Harley. And now she has to play a dangerous game of revenge with a man incapable of compassion. No matter how kind Hannah is, Jackson believes she's playing at a dangerous ruse. As Jackson forces Hannah to submit amid threats and abuse, Hannah finds freedom in her submission. She begins to learn from her submission and it empowers her. She begins to think..."hey, this submission, pain/pleasure thing ain't so bad!" In fact, she finds her niche in this lifestyle which leaves Jackson kind'a confused and groping for his revenge. And then.......he begins to fight his attraction to Hannah (whom he still believes is Harley). Ruh-roe!!!
This second installment is all about power play, psychological torture, domination and mind/war-games. Again it's very "wordy" with little balance between narration and dialogue. Ms. Valente takes the reader deeper into the dark mind games of Jackson Hawke.
Book #3; DESPERATE DOMINATION 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Jackson finds out many truths in this third installment, but doesn't relent with his cruelty to get the answers he needs. But Hannah is kindness and goodness and forgiveness and she begins to worm her way into what little heart Jackson has left. She see's into the darkest recesses of Jackson's soul and refuses to be frightened away. She becomes his healing power. Ms Valente shows the reader the wounded predator Jackson has become. She shows us Hannah's many strengths. It was heartbreaking to see the extent of Jackson's damage. He broke my heart. Brilliantly told.
Book #4; DIVINE DOMINATION 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Lot's of excitement and nail biting in this final installment when a sociopath psycho-butt killer kidnaps Hannah and takes her hostage. Secrets are revealed and hidden questions are answered. Such a great finale. Ms. Valente explains living a Dom/sub lifestyle with precision. Jackson learns that in the end, love is more powerful than anything that would ever try to stand in the way of him and Hannah. Brilliant conclusion. Brilliantly conveyed.
This was a well done take on beauty and the beast, with mistaken identity thrown in for a curve ball. As with most mistaken identity novels, I found it hard to believe that he wouldn't have known he had the wrong girl, but the author did a good job of trying to ameliorate this. There were enough twists and turns to keep you engaged throughout. The last 10% was very dragged out, boring, and unnecessary, except as a setup for the next book, so it detracted from the read for me. Hannah's portrayal as "strong outside the bedroom, and submissive inside it" sometimes didn't work for me, as she felt buffeted about by fate a lot. Jackson was not a billionaire, despite the title, just a well-off criminal. The author did a good job of portraying his vulnerabilities in such a way that he never looked weak and his redemption felt credible and satisfying.
I would definitely recommend this book, but only as a boxed set, because each installment is just that, an installment, not a complete narrative arc.
