Second book in the Dark Erotica series. This time you get Mia. She was very young when she ran away from home.

Not sure where to begin here, I have spent the last 2 days working on putting my thoughts together to review this book. I have given this book 4 stars but it doesn’t feel right to say I enjoyed it because the nature was so painful to read. So, I will start by saying this, this book is about a woman, Mia, who is in the middle of a human trafficking/slave ring. She was saved from the streets by the man who is now her master but even though she says he saved her that is not the word I would use, as ...more

First off, a warning. This is another one of those dark and extremely explicit stories. The story has a very mature subject matter that involve human trafficking & slavery. All of it led to one very graphic story and may not be suitable for everyone.

To me, the story had two sides, the one with Mia & Tyler and the one with Mia & Carlos. Mia is one tough chick. She grew up sexually abused by her father and ran away from home at an early age. Carlos found her, cared for her an

To start this review I want say the the cover of this book is one of the most beautiful covers of 2012 so far, for me and the blurb peeked my interest so strongly that I put everything else aside to read it.

I know most people refrain from reading non-consent books or books with disturbing scenes. While it can be unsettling or worrisome, Skye Warren has done a fantastic job of showing us how something so tragic can turn into something so beautifully wonderful.

I’m very attracted to books that are dark, disturbing and erotic and my friend Sophia knows this, so when she heard about Trust in Me, I ended up with a gift on my Kindle. The book starts with a note from the author in which she states, “I must warn you that this is a disturbing tale, one that starts dark and gets darker.” She goes on to warn of nonconsensual sex and erotic pain. If either of those are a trigger for you, than this book is not for you.

Review posted on Wicked Reads

WOW! I'm not sure how to review this book.

Disclaimer:This book is NOT traditional erotica. It is a non-consensual storyline that includes force, violence, brutality, humiliation. In other words if you are looking for steamy lust scenes with hot leading men, this isn't it. I, however- enjoy isn't the correct word- crave this sort of story. For me dark erotica holds a very small niche in the erotica genre. When written well it is extremely psychological and fulfills c

This review was originally posted on my blog, Darkest Sins.

"Trust In Me" is strong, dark and twisted, exactly how a dark erotica book should be. It's easy to find events and concepts that disturb you in this genre, but the trick is all in the story. When you find one so well written, as this one, there's nothing you can do, you're going to be captivated from the beginning to the end and yes, shocked or not, you will enjoy every minute.

Alright, this is another in the "Dark Erotica" series, which oddly enough is not terribly dark.

Mia was abused as a child/young lady, ran away from home, was taken in by a gangster and turned into his slut/whore. So far, pretty dark, I'll grant you.

Then her next door neighbor shows up, and joins the gang. Mia is offered to him, forced into acts of depravity and beaten. Good so far!

Then we go off the rails, as we often seem to in this series, and Mia escapes with Tyler, who it turns out was her tr

I will start this out by saying this is a 'dark erotica' read. Warnings are given by the publisher and by other reviewers that this book has multiple trigger potentials so do head those warnings when you consider reading/buying this book.

This is a stand alone contemporary read from the POV of Mia, a sex slave to a really high level nasty crime boss. It starts with Mia firmly entrenched in a life of submission, abuse, humiliation, pain, and deprivation. She's the favorite whore of Carlos, crime b

Recommends it for: Adults, readers of dark kink/BDSM
This starts off as a sorry tale for Mia, the main character, being used and abused, 'owned' by Carlos a local drug and gang leader. No respect for her, she has been taken and trained for his use. This is not a BDSM story with respect, care or consideration for Mia in any form whatsoever, until Tyler, known from her childhood, appears on the scene. Is he working for good or just another gang man wanting to take Mia for the same life? Will he be able to protect or help Mia? Readers find out.

I can't rate this one. I'm completely mind f*cked atm and simply can't rate it.

I just hope that leaving no stars doesn't mean that I have given the story a bad score or taken down the average score - if I have PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

My reasons:

This story is fabulously written. Skye Warren is talented. Oh, boy is she talented. I found the entire story intriguing and hypnotizing in its uniqueness.

But as great as this story is written, it just simply isn't for me. I wasn't entirely sure what dark ero

WOW! This was definitely depraved! But WOW! It was well done depraved! Skye Warren's writing is very evocative!

Even though I have absolutely no concept of the kind of life the heroine has had to lead I really really really felt for her. Even though you only get a small glimpse into her past you feel for her regardless and even though her life is worse than shit you can feel her resolve. She was a character you couldn't help but like because of the horrors she had endured and the humanity she re

I enjoyed Trust In Me much more than Keep Me Safe. Skye Warren is a great writer and I look forward to reading many more titles by her. Yes, this book is dark - VERY dark! - but there is a realistic feel to it. I would describe this book as more of a thriller than erotica though. Whereas Keep Me Safe seemed to focus on the over-the-top sex scene, Trust In Me focuses moreso on the brutality of Mia's life and the conditions any woman might find herself in when at the mercy of sex slave traders.

I thought the first book was dark but it was nothing compared to this.

In some ways, it wasn't as bad for Mia because she wasn't dragged into this in quite the same way. But once you understand the whole story, it was just kind of agonizing.

I had been wanting to read this one for a while and I am happy I did but it isn't a fun story to get through by any means. I am curious about the third book and plan to read that one as well. After that, though, I am going to have to consider carefully.

description

You know, I am so disappointed at dark erotica that I might just start writing my own book to prove that you can write in this subgenre and have your book not be a freaking misogynistic mess. There is absolutely no need to make the "dark" in the form of explicit (and glorified) rape and end up romanticizing scenarios where women are abused and c

Trust In Me… this is a fabulous story. I’m not even sure how to classify this book. Erotica, Dark Erotica, Suspense, Romance… all of the above? This story is so multifaceted that I’m still thinking about it a week later. It is beautifully written, and you find yourself really attaching to the main character, Mia, and her struggle within and to save other girls who are about to be in her same situation. But before I go on, let me say that the Warning is correct; this book is not for everyone. The ...more

This book contains human trafficking, consensual rape (I didn't even know such a thing existed until the last book), and physical and emotional abuse. Mia is our heroine and I must say that I really liked her. She has a very dim view of herself, but so would anyone in her situation being treated as poorly as Mia. Mia is a sex slave, and as abused and humiliated as she is, she still maintains an inner strength that is to be respected. She is waiting and sometimes hoping for death, as it is her on ...more

Mia grew up in a tough neighborhood with a single parent, her father. She had a crush on her next door neighbor Tyler since she was 12. Ty was 18 and to Mia she was her knight in shining armor, or was he?

Circumstances led to Mia becoming Carlos'. She is to serve him in any way he demands and there is no disputing it. She is essentially his property. Carlos is a carry over from the first book and the fourth book in this series which comes out next year, according to Author's GR, is dedicated to C

I have no problem with angst or dark, even depressing stories. I do have a problem with torture porn. I'm not just talking about physical violence--which, while Trust in Me had plenty, isn't what I object to. No it's when nothing but bad things happen to a character that it becomes almost farcical. After a while it's, "Oh come on! How much shit can happen to one person?"

Mia has never had a single moment of happiness in her life. Raped by her father throughout her childhood until she ran away, s

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. After reading Keep Me Safe, I was a little leary of this one.

It took me a while to get into this book, it seemed repetitious, Tyler was constantly apologizing and Mia was constantly getting beat just for the sake of being beat with no real cause or definition. Yes, I know the situation she was in. Yes I know this is Dark Erotica, it's pretty much all I read these days.I love dark erotica, but I a

For those of you out there that like your dark erotica this is right up there as far as I am concerned. Its on par with Comfort Food and Tender Mercies by Kitty Thomas.
Dark, disturbing, this book is not for the faint hearted.
Loved that although Mia had had an awful, awful life her white knight came and rescued her.

as far as the dark erotica portion 5 stars
the story is what kills it for me from being amazing. I feel it needed to be longer because it was forced and felt skipped over.. the plot twist in the bedroom.. I still don't get it?
I guess since you still have questions at the end of the day it means it was a good book because you want to read the next book to find out.. and I almost did .. but I don't like the next books MC :P

God.
It started well, nicely dark, really dark, well written.
And then it happened. A happy ending, a weird happy ending, starting halfway through the book.
I finished it, I don't know why, but I was about to throw my Kindle.
Why do you have to end a dark dark dark book with happy romance?

First of all, my review is solely for the writing style and the execution of this story. This story is a DARK EROTICA/ROMANCE, which means it features dubious consent, non-consent and violence. It should go without saying that these books have nothing to do with BDSM (in fact, the author says so herself in her foreword). So I will not rate this book for representation of BDSM or consent (as I usually do BDSM romances).

Also, if you do not like dark erotica, this book definitely isn't for you. I p

I did roll my eyes a good few times reading this but it was a quick read.
If you like dark stories which are fast-paced and contain loads of.. dark erotica, then you would enjoy this.
I liked the overall story but it was more erotica than story, I would have preferred if it was the other way around.
