Jodie is a young woman living on the edge of bankruptcy. She's a sometime low-budget documentary filmmaker and a part-time, not-so-successful comedienne. She needs to find a way to make money, and it needs to be something fairly fast. But what? She's really not that good a comedienne. And none of her documentaries have proven to be successful, at least when it comes to money. She's talked to her friends, contacts, everyone she can think of. Suddenly she has an idea. It's risky. And although she's sure it holds great promise, it's definitely not a sure thing. But it all hinges on one person, and she's not at all sure she can even begin to talk him into it.
Klaus is Jodie's accountant and former boyfriend. He's an upstanding member of the community, about as respectable as they come. When Jodie comes to him with her idea for a documentary that she's sure will solve her problems, he's more than skeptical. It's goes against everything he believes in. Her premise? A fantasy she's always held, a capture fantasy where she's taken and held captive against her will. Klaus wants no part in this. It's just wrong. But Jodie has always fascinated him, and after long, intense, detailed talks about what will and, more importantly, absolutely will NOT, happen, they come up with a written contract that both sign. The question is, will this work? Klaus has laid out very precise rules about what will not happen under any circumstances, and Jodie thinks that goes against the whole concept of the documentary. But she has no choice. Klaus is her only option.
As the story proceeds, Klaus and Jodie both begin to learn things that they never suspected even existed inside themselves. After the unexciting beginnings of the project, things rapidly unwind and snowball down an uncertain and icy slope. Will Jodie get what she wants from this experience? She doesn't just want the documentary. After all, this is based on her own fantasy. And what about Klaus? He thinks he knows himself so well. He's a staid accountant, respected, normal in every way. But is he really? What can truly happen between two people who isolate themselves for a month with just a laminated set of rules between them? Will he be able to hold to the promises he and Jodie agreed to? As things slowly begin to spiral, events move ever farther out of control. Exactly how far toward the edge of the abyss will Jodie and Klaus allow themselves to go before they call this off? There's danger involved, and nothing is certain. In the end, does either of them know what they're doing or just how far they're willing to go for the project?
Cari Silverwood took me by complete surprise with this book. I knew she wrote dark, erotic fiction, but I had no idea just how perfect her writing skills are. She's become another of my favorite authors. Take Me, Break Me is a very dark, erotic romance with elements of nonconsensual BDSM that might disturb some. However, I loved this book, and couldn't put it down. I was riveted from the moment I started reading. The character development is superb. I felt every single emotion from each individual in the story. That's just how talented she is. I give Take Me, Break Me my highest recommendation without reservation. Thank you, Cari, for giving me such a wonderful reading experience that took me to the highest of highs, the deepest of lows, and every level in between. Your talent as an author is extremely impressive, and your writing ability is exceptional!
One final note. Please be an informed reader and consumer! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and extremely dark, nonconsensual BDSM sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. USE THESE RESOURCES. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. IT'S NOT FAIR TO THE AUTHOR! She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
This book was the first that I had read that made me realize that I might not be as vanilla as I had previously thought.
I learned, much like Jodie and Klaus , how BDSM works. This author did a great job going into that world. It was realistic. I loved that booth characters discovered something about themselves. It was a pivotal moment.
I the steam, anticipation, and storyline were brilliant.
This book was even better the second time around.
I love the darkly themed books and this fits the bill, it's what Cari does and does well. It did drag just a bit for me at first but whew, so so worth the read and I did and just fell into the story. She puts a spin on things that make you need to reread the paragraph you just read. I'm all into the Non-Con because it has you sitting on the edge, how far, how dark and mind warping.
The "captive" storyline is intense and amazingly written. Characters so engaging as they are intriguing. Klaus not sure if he'd be a book boyfriend for me but OMG, he's got something and in spades. (smiles) that kinda scared but I want thing working.
This isn't a rainbow and butterflies kinda book. Devel into Cari's mind through her amazing story and yeah enjoy.

If you don't like TPE maybe not for you but it was done extremely well.
Could have been a bit longer for me, maybe a bit more back ground on 'Jodie' would have helped too but would love to know where they are going from here. Loved the secondary character 'Kat', more of her Ms Silverwood would be VERY appreciated.
One of those books where you're in mourning when you're finished and need chocolate and cake for the withdrawal symptoms.
Now off to Google Cari Silverwood for more deliciousness.
The book starts off quite light and some of Jodie's thoughts are hilarious. Klaus's thoughts and actions get darker and at times disturbing.
This is a well written and enthralling read and a great start to a new series. Or, as Jodie says 'we are going down some Alice in Kinkyland rabbit hole' - oh yes!
Too forced for me, although consent was agreed -eventually.
If you like your stories darker than the average, you may enjoy this
