Dirty Daughter - I loved this story - it's taboo in a different type of dark romance setting. The mom aspect was a little sad, but we have Emily waiting in the wings to win Max over. The thing was, she didn't know Max already had his eye on her. Dark, twisty, and captivating, another great steamy romance by Ms. Duvane.
Filthy Cam Girl - Ashley may be a little bit reclusive, but she is not shy about letting her sexual curiosity take flight. Drake is her best friend's dad, and he's one hot dominant man! He knows just how to push her buttons and get to her. This book was seductively steamy with a captivating story line, and the magnetic attraction between Drake and Ashley was explosive. I love this author's stories as much for the romance as for the story - they have a way of gripping you and not letting go.
Dark Doctor - After getting into an accident, Abby ends up in a hospital where her doctor bears a striking resemblance to her ex, Jake. This book had dark elements in it, but it wasn't as disturbing as I had expected. Still, it was steamy and you could see the torment both Abby and Jake suffered. I only wish this book had been a little longer.
Colin - This was one of the dark and disturbing of this set. Colin works at a salon, but he's a disturbed serial killer. His neighbor Avery is a curious tenant, and she's caught the attention of the mysterious Colin. This book had me on edge as I tried to figure out how Colin was going to find redemption. It's a dark and twisted story, to be sure!
Dirty Daughter - Five Stars
Now, JB Duvane knows how to write a dark romance! Let's just say that this one is once again up there for twisted and slightly uncomfortable reading but secretly it is SOOOOOO worth reading!
The story begins with 18 year old Emily and her deranged, drug and alcohol addicted mother Amelia. From here we are introduced to the mysterious but downright sexy Dr Max, Amelia's psychologist who she uses, as she believes, sexually for prescription drugs she craves. In actual fact, Dr Max is simply bidding his time and his dark motives soon become clear when Amelia passes away and he is left to lure Emily into his devious 'trap'!
Emily however has been watching and mooning over Max from afar and now she is free of the clutches of her downright scary and nasty mother, Emily is looking for the love she has wanted for a VERY long time. Let's just say ...be careful what you wish for!
I loved these two and the chemistry between them is STEAMY! There are many plot twists and turns that keep you on your toes and wondering if this is really ok and if they will be together after facing secrets and lies. JB Duvane simply doesn't disappoint!
It hooks you in from the first page and keeps you locked up in its sinister and wickedly sexy tale that means you simply can't turn away from the book! I'd love for JB Duvane to write a bit more - maybe a short story from the end of this book, but that's just me being a greedy reader!
You should certainly buy this one if you like intense, sexy but dark and twisty romances....trust me, you won't regret it!
Filthy Cam Girl - Four Stars
Once again JB manages to hook us in to a dark and sexy world that keeps us twisting and turning as she reveals all her plot elements and gives her readers exactly what they are looking for - a
steamy, romance novel with a HEA.
Ashley is a young woman fighting to get free of her hurts of the past and move on with her future but unable to explore fully her curiosities in the 'real world'. On line she is a sexy virgin who is wanted but life is kept at arm's reach...that is until she engages in more than entertainment with one particularly intriguing and sensitive client, Big Sir!
Big Sir, or Drake is the older man who has been watching Ashley from afar since she was a little girl. Also marred by tragedy, Drake battles with his sadness and his own feelings of denial when he realises that he has feelings beyond that which society says is right.....yet somehow he can't resist.
Together they travel down a path of darkness but find that despite everything, they genuinely love and need each other and that is what counts. The sex between them is hot and steamy and JB manages to keep us simmering throughout the book. It's not really too dark in terms of JB having certainly written darker but, the sad events of the past and the sinister way these two eventually meet and get together is intentionally secretive and could be difficult for those who find this triggering and/or disturbing.
That being said, I really enjoyed this story and as always JB doesn't disappoint.
The Dark Doctor - Four Stars
This one is quite short in comparison to some of the others in the collection but is still up there in the seriously dark and creepy stakes. It does however show JB in her earlier work where she was still getting a handle on the dark and dirty and probably lacks some of the fantastic elements she has become adept at.
Abby is running away from Jake, a man she wants but feels something is not quite 'right' with. She runs away with her fear of commitment and lands in a creepy mansion being held captive by a 'Dark Doctor' who seems to be just like Jake! Here in begins a dark romance with some dark and violent sex that may be triggering for some readers.
I have to admit, I saw the twist coming and as I said before, this is very obviously some of JB's earlier works but it in no way makes this less enjoyable but probably slightly less 'put together' than her more current work! Still worth a read!
Colin: A Serial Killer - Four Stars
This one certainly has creep factor and certainly pushes the boundaries of darkness. Colin is actually quite a loveable serial killer once you get past the creepy, serial killer qualities! I know, kind of funny but, you can see how Avery falls for him and wants him to be more than he is and see himself as she sees him.
Again, I didn't love this one as much as I have other of JB's works but again, this one is worth the read if you like your romances with dark, twisty elements that at times make you go 'ew' and at others, 'ah'! A good addition to JB's 'kidnapped' collection!
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this collection.
