I’m a huge fan of the BDSM sub-genre so I held out a lot of hope for this one. Unfortunately it just didn’t work for me. The BDSM element seemed shallow at best and the characters were just plain unlikeable. I get that Holly is a goth, and that she is somewhat dark to her core, but she came across as a bit of a poser. That may have largely been due to the fact that it felt like I was being told, rather than shown. This is the first book in the series and I’m not sure if I’ll be picking up the next. Readers that are fans of mild BDSM and erotica will enjoy this one, it just wasn’t for me.
What a whirlwind of epic proportions. This story was lust at first sight, a burning need, and a fire that can't be tamed. So, so many things going on in this book. Some I loved, others not so much. I didn't know if I could relate to Holly, or even admit to it. She pissed me off, kinda like the indecision I've been faced with. Sometimes to have to set the world on fire, just to see it burn, but be careful, you will get burned.
Holly works for Sean, a Sadist, he's relentlessly pursuing her. She's in head over heels in lust with the rock star who plays at their club, Jared. And last but not least, she has another falling over his feet to claim her, Deacon. I dislike the "golden vagina" syndrome. So I rolled my eyes a bit with the attraction to Deacon. I totally got the sparks from Jared though. I'm calling it Dark Insta Love, and somehow it didn't bother me. Jared's words suck me in, I was in love with the singer, myself. A dark poet, he bleeds his need to consume Holly. I was sucked into his vortex.
"Home is where the heart is, and he had mine with one meeting of our gazes, when our souls touched, when they fondled across a crowded room, burning love’s haze into the gloom."
What happens when Sean shows Holly the the darker side, will she let Sean consume her? He awakens something that can't be tamed. Sean is sex-on-a-twisted-stick. He's manipulative, he's dark orgasms. I love the bad guys, I can't help it. But is he? Holly is forced to decide, love or desire. Heaven or HELL. One thing I loved about Holly was her ability to let all else fade and feed her need. She threw caution to the wind and let her hunger devour her thinking. Holly soon finds out the game she wasn't privy to, she's a pawn of rivalry. The game is just beginning and I can't wait to see all the pieces.
This isn't your ordinary Rockstar Romance, not by any means. Be prepared, you might want to throw your kindle a few times, kill the heroine, and make babies with Jared, Deacon, or Sean. You choose.
I must admit, I found three of the main leads loathsome in the extreme. That I was thoroughly ensnared by their relentless mind games is a testament to the author's unique abilities to weave elements of sadism, horror, eroticism, and even a pastiche of noir, into the storytelling.
If you like a taste of madness, a soupcon of danger and the slow torture of a mind and soul unraveling, then Loving Misery is right up your alley. The writing is intelligently sublime, word edgeplay at its finest.
An unreserved five stars. Well done. I am hooked and awaiting the next level of play.
