What is going on with this new trend of short chapter novellas???? I must learn to pay attention to length of book before I purchase...
STOP it...just Stop!!! Wait and get a full length novel put together and then release your work. Stop trying to rake us readers over the coals by writing a bunch of short installments and charging a full length novel price...
Just to be clear... I HATE THIS TREND!! Hate...did I mention how much I HATE this installment trend??
Ok, moving on....
So, after finishing Deviant, I have discovered that it is basically Part 1. There is another part coming out but I have not been able to track down a release date...the only thing I do know is that at the abrupt end of Deviant, there is a short blurb that tells me the author hopes I am joining Zeth and Sloane for the next installment of their Deviant Journey....well... I will...Maybe.. Eventually. When all of the "installments" are released and either a box set comes out, or the price reflects what Iam buying. It really pisses me off that authors are charging what they are charging for basically 4 chapters of what could be a really good novel.
With that being said, I can't say I didnt enjoy the writing, the plot was good, it was twisted and I loved the characters. I am giving it 3 stars because I really hate the installments, and had the author waited and put all of her installments into a full length novel (or 2) this could of easily been a 4.5-5 star book...
At the time of this post the book is on sale for .99...I wish I had waited to purchase it.
Sloan is timid fearful wallflower. Surprisingly, she is also in school to become a doctor. When we meet her she is on her way to do something, something unthinkable. Sloane must push through all of her insecurities to get information on her missing sister.
This is when she meets the mysterious man who brings out her inner vixen and gives her the most memorable night of her life! The problem?? She never gets his name and she never gets the information that she needs to save her sister.
Fast forward two years. Sloan has closed herself off to life, spending most days (and nights) at the hospital she works at. It's there that she meets him again....that mysterious man who she never thought she would see again.
Zeth is not a good man. Zeth does unspeakable things, dangerous things. He knows he should not get involved with Sloan and her problems, but he is drawn to her. He tests her. He shows her the dark underbelly of life. Like a moth to a flame Sloan follows Zeth as they discover just how far she will go, and just how far he will go to keep her.
To say that I just enjoyed this book would be an understatement. I LOVED it! Zeth was dark and dangerous, with just the right amount of sweetness to make him the perfect man. Sloan, though at first very reserved, comes out of her shell and demands to be seen. It had all the things that make a book outstanding: great story line, depth of characters, steamy love scenes, leaves you wanting more. I really wished it was longer because it was so good and I really got into the story. I cannot wait for book 2!!
Also, I want to note that this does NOT end in a cliffhanger.
Before I read this book, I had no idea wheat to expect. I mean, I'd seen all of these sexy teasers about this guy called Zeth and decided I HAD to get my hands on it somehow. The author was gracious enough to let me have an early copy after I begged her a little bit, and I'm SO glad she did.
The mind f**kery in this book is sensational to say the least… Zeth is one scrumptious bad boy! I'm so glad to see a male lead who actually speaks in full sentences, doesn't drop the end off every word he speaks, and is described in so much luscious detail, it gave me butterflies just reading about his lips. And that was when he was barely visible in the dark!
The tagline, "What's done in the dark never stays in the dark" captivated me as soon as I saw the cover and I didn't regret one moment of reading this.
FIVE MILLION *MELTED-MY-PANTIES-OFF* STARS!
Zeth is a dangerous man. He kills without remorse and he takes what he wants. He has peculiar needs and makes it known to Sloane that she is to do what he asks, without question. After taking her innocence, he leaves and the two don’t see each other again until two years have passed. Both have something that the other one wants, but you’ll need to read to see just how it plays out.
I did find that I had a love/hate relationship with both Sloane and Zeth.
Sloane was persistent in trying to find her missing sister, and her dedication to the search helped draw me to her. However, she was a virgin and the sexual acts really didn't make it seem like she was. I would have preferred to see more realistic reactions that a virgin would have had to Zeth’s sexual preferences.
Zeth drew me in with the very first chapter, and I had immediately liked him. He was hot, dominant, and a complete mystery. However, as the story progressed, my connection to him slowly began to fade. Then there was a scene at a house party in which he does something that completely put me off. Especially considering this was only the SECOND time that he and Sloane were together sexually. I’m not going to give anything away, but trust me. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you come across it. Definitely not my cup of tea, but it might be yours!Read more ›
