I really enjoyed this story. It touched me in so many levels.

I'm not going to go into writing my own blurb, it's a waste of time on these kinds of reviews.

Keaton, has a very complicated and tragic history that is told in bits and pieces. Sorry to say I could identify with much of her history as well as her highly complicated relationship with her mother and what made it complicated. What I loved about this story is the evolution Keaton experiences from start to finish and the finished Keaton in this story still has room to grow. Very few erotic authors ever bother to really grow their characters, let alone flesh them out so well as Courtney Lane does. We see a Keaton who is a shell of what she should have been, we see her fight to survive and through this fight we see her come to terms with things she had run away from, things she had refused to deal with. Through this survival fight Keaton learns the mistakes she had made in running away, in not trusting, and through her fight to survive she learns to trust the most important person in her life, herself. Even when all evidence and common sense-not to mention most readers I wager- would scream not to trust, she can't deny what her intuition tells her. However, she doesn't fully, blindly, or even hopefully trust others. She keeps listening to that soft voice inside that grows stronger every day she faces frightening challenges.

Keaton begins this story as a broken frightened run away who is being mentored in how to turn it all off and shut down in order to survive on the lowest levels. Then she is thrust into a situation where she must feel but not feel, trust but not trust, love but not love. Who can you turn to when there is no one to turn to?

Noah is an enigma.

The storyline was somewhat interesting but I found myself skipping large chunks of text. This was a very, very dark erotic tale and I do enjoy these types of novels. However, as a seasoned reader, I did find some of the violence gratuituous and unncessary and in the end, unbelievably unforgiveable. There was a significant portion of the story allocated to the heroine, Keaton, recovering from injuries inflicted upon by the supposed hero, Noah, days, weeks, months of isolation and recovery. Without giving too much detail away, there were some acts I could not stretch my imagination enough to find any redemption in. If I don't find a book worth reading, I don't continue it, but I did stick with this one and in the end, I have mixed feelings about the fact that I did. I definitely do not feel the heroine made the best choice in the questionable path she chose at conclusion of this story.

I did enjoy the heroine, Keaton, she really remained true to herself throughout the story, thus the 3 stars vs. 2.

"The place and everything in it were just an illusion, hiding a very sinister truth."

The Sect (stand-alone) introduces us to heiress and socialite Keaton Mara, Princess aka Mute who has resorted to a life on the streets. More on why and who she is hiding from to unfold with story.

One day, at the local food bank, she locks eyes with a handsome hazel-eyed stranger, Noah Oliver. He is with The House of Rebirth known for its kindness and rehabilitation of the homeless.
"Welcome to The House of Rebirth."

But she knows it Keaton drugged and whisked away to an undisclosed isolated compound. The House of Rebirth is less about spiritual awakening and appears to be more of a cult.

The Sect is about sexual depravations; slavery, BDSM, rape, violence, torture and much more! You are required to honor the sinister Reven and his volatile right hand man Noah. Keaton is coerced and broken into sexual submission.

But soon Keaton and Noah find themselves conflicted, seeking stolen moments of violent passion...

Why the mixed signals from Noah? Why has she been taken to the compound? What is the purpose of rebirth? These are just some of the many questions to be answered...

The Sect is nothing short of a mindf**k as Keaton's past, present and future collide...

NOAH OLIVER\: The House of Rebirth/$$$$/Vet/Black hair/Hazel-blue eyes/Scars/Tattoo.
Eight words to describe Noah Oliver: Volatile, charismatic, sinister, complex, enigmatic, possessive, ruthless and deceptive.
"The sad thing is, I don't think you'll ever know what's true and what's false about me."

KEATON MARA, Princess aka Mute: Heiress/socialite/Homeless runaway/Brown hair/Amber eyes/Virgin.

Prepare yourselves to venture into the darkness with Courtney Lane's standalone novel The Sect. Courtney's work always takes me on a journey with her writing and The Sect is no different, the symbolism and subtle nuances are there for the reader if you know where to look, just like Keaton in the book all her answers are hidden in plain sight. This book truly is dark so heed the warnings. This is difficult one to review without spoilers, but it's not a typical captive story.

The book follows Keaton Mara, a young woman who has lived a privileged life, but that life style still could not protect her from one of life's monsters. She suffers at the hands of a beast who will not let her go and she flees to seek sanctuary on the street of Washington D C. There she has her first taste of real freedom. Free of the constraints of her family, society and materialism she can truly 'see'. It's still a life of fear but "it's paradise compared to what I've been through." reasons Keaton.

One unwise decision changes that. An enigmatic, dark haired man called Noah herds her from the streets to Rebirth: a place where Gods and Monsters are one and the same, the elite and unworthy mingle, pleasure and pain beautifully entwine under one man's rule. Keaton believes she can gain her freedom easily as pain, misery and torture don't touch her any more, but one man knows her secret.... The way to break her completely. Can she trust him not to share this secret when this weapon he wields could destroy her completely whilst she's barely surviving in the depths of hell?? What you see isn't always what's reality and what your told isn't always the truth whilst she's kept at Rebirth.
