She wakes up in a spare room, where the only thing she remembers is her training. A man brings her water and bread. He claims he doesn't want her, but he can't seem to resist her.

Maybe this could be enough—to do as she was taught. Maybe she doesn't have to remember. But the secrets of his past haunt the cabin, fraying the tightening bond between Master and slave.

Did I just get mind fucked? Yes I believe I did.

This is my favorite book in the Dark Erotica series. Nothing ties this slave to the others in Keep me Safe, and Trust in Me. So I would say you can go ahead and read this book as a standalone if you want to BUT be sure to read the others. This book alone will make you want to read the others.

"Freedom’s an illusion. We all live in prisons of our own making."
I'm not sure how to rate this. Have you ever both loved & hated a book? Warren has a gift when it comes to writing dark erotica and placing her readers dead smack in the middle of her mind games. The writing is fantastic, the plot and context what's my problem? I don't like this subject matter. I don't understand the whole slave/master thing. I do not understand the power exchange in relation to myself so it's hard for me to understand why anyone would do that. I also don't ...more

This was so different than the earlier stories in the series. I really liked it but...

It kind of reminded me of The After Hours from the Twilight Zone. But not exactly.

The whole "pretty girl" washed up on the beach theme reminded me of the classic and current story of how Aquaman's parents, Tom Curry and Atlanna, met. But not exactly.

Sam and Brendan actually reminded me Logan and Jake from Master of the Mountain. But not exactly.

The ending kind of made me think of The

May I just state that I’m a huge fan of Skye Warren and her Dark Erotica Series. She is such a talented writer and these series, though short in length, packs quite an emotional punch. They are not for everyone, mind you, so be aware before you decide to pick it up. These stories are filled with dark subject matter that might push one’s comfort level. These series involve non-consent sex, slavery, and psychological torture. However, if you’re like me and are not bothered by the graphic

She does it every time. I love this author; love her stories, her characters and her writing. Her books are short and erotic; just what I need to get me out of a 'book funk' (that's when I can't find anything good to read). I loved this dark and mysterious story.

I don't even know how to begin to review this one! It's a total mindfuck! It turns and twists and never lets you see what's coming around the next corner. It's dark, tortured, and even heartbreaking at times, and I wouldn't trade a single minute of this read. The only thing I wish is that I could go back and read it for the first time all over again.

Skye Warren does it again with Hear Me her new release in the Non-consent/Dark Erotica series.She writes some of the most arousing, frightening, thought provoking, disturbing, dark erotica and I love it! When I finish one of Skye Warrens books I think to myself - damn I'm twisted; I loved the torture, the submission/compliance, the dominance/aggression, all of it combined make me crave more and I know it's so bad but I'm so thankful that there are authors out there like her that push my limits. ...more

This was very unexpected. I did not see the twist at all--and I should have! I've read a book like this before with similar themes but not the same exact circumstances, so I felt like I should have seen it coming, but a teeny, tiny part of me is kind of glad I didn't and that the author was able to blow me away like that.

Again, I have to give props to Skye Warren on her writing in this book, especially. She used some rather lovely language and her analogies were beautiful and disturbing and it

Skye Warren is my new go to girl for Dark Erotica.

At this point, I have a few. But this story moved me, pushed me, and made me want more. I think there is something disturbing about the fact I found this book ridiculously romantic. Then again, I also found the last chapter of Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty Erotica series. This story was no different for me, and it was 200 pages less than that. Perhaps that type of situation moves me. My husband thinks I have a romantic idea of the subby being

Didn't think much of this one.

Though it did have a twist at the end of the book!!

It was in the females point of view, with snippets of the males.
The blurb was intriguing and the beginning chapters sucked me in, but the ending was underwhelming and the characters were underdeveloped.

Earlier this year I read Trust in Me (I can’t remember who rec’d it to me, but someone did and thank you!) self published by Skye Warren. I liked its really dark erotic content. When she offered me her latest, Hear Me for review, I grabbed it.

However, Hear Me is even more extreme in its dark content and I’m honestly not sure how I feel about it. First let me say Skye Warren has a very intriguing voice and gave me a story that I had to finish, even if I was uncomfortable. As the reader, you are

So I just finished this book. Hear Me is the third installment of Skye Warren's Dark Erotica series. Just like the others it was not a long book; finished it in just a few hours. However, just like all of Skye Warren's books it packs an emotional rollercoaster with a dark subject matter. I had a hard time reading this book. I found it confusing, leaving me with more questions than answers and ultimately left feeling like: “WHAT? No wait, what? So wait, who’s the bad guy?”

Hear Me is by far my FAVORITE book of the Dark Erotica series! The book begins from "her" standpoint. She escaped, she wants freedom, and she wants to live!

She doesn't know who she is frankly she doesn't remember who she is. All she can recall is what she had endured but for how long and she knows for certain she is a "slave".

The book is told from "her" POV, which follows the first two books in this series. She awakes and wonders where she is when she encounters her "Master". Her "Master" is

This was a quick read, 100 pages or so. Despite its short length, the pace was kinda slow and I didn't feel the chemistry between the characters as much as books with similar story lines, like Comfort Food or Captive in the Dark. This book fell short of reaching either of those books' level.

The female character awakens in a stranger's house. She immediately feels at home, or at least safer than where she has been as she has just escaped from being held as a sex slave for reasons she can't
I don't even know how to say what I feel about this. I liked the premise. Kidnapped/Captured girl, trained and damaged(She doesn't remember anything, not even her name, and cannot speak), struggles to escape. Alright, I'm with you so far.

Then, she finds herself in a strange new situation with a new Master. Good stuff. The new Master is mostly kind and nice...Wait, isn't this Dark Erotica? How'd we go off the rails?

Then, she leaves and goes back to her normal life, which she's remembered, and

This is the first book that I have read of Skye Warren and it was definitely different than other BDSM stories I've read. There were so many twists and turns in this story that I couldn't put it down. In fact, I had to re-read the past 1/4 of the book just to make sure I got the ending right. This is a great read - and I do recommend the book - the story was just a bit outside of my comfort zone; probably because it was so believable! I would certainly read Skye Warren's other stories.

I found this book through Maryse's Book Blog and it sounded interesting. I read Comfort Food and liked it, so I thought I'd try this out. I liked it, but it was too short for me. I just never felt a connection to the characters, but it did leave me feeling totally confused and conflicted. Honestly not sure how I feel about this book....
I'm confused. Like I have no idea what the hell happened. I hate that I got mindfucked. I mean I get it but I don't. Who's the bad guy or is melody just really good at making bad decisions and has Stockholm syndrome?

I was all set to take that trip down the road to the dark side again with Skye Warren, but I must say I was surprised. This one was a little lighter than the previous books I've read by this author, but still just as gripping and with the darkness of slavery and a little BDSM around the edges.

Since this is the third installment of the Dark Erotica series, I was prepared for Carlos and his sadistic means of torture to invade my dreams and turn them into nightmares. But, Carlos isn't in this

A dark erotic read that had me at the edge of my seat anticipating what would come next. It will have you wanting to yell out loud at the top of your lungs and wanting to slap around a character or two. Such vivid imagination and originality that you’ll feel as if you are right there watching it all unfold. A great read for all and any BDSM/erotic readers that accept a dark touch to the lifestyle. This was my first Skye Warren read and WILL NOT be my last!

My main concern with the book is that there isn't enough of it. And I don't mean that in the "I want to read more of this, it's so great" sense. I literally mean the book would be better if there was more of it -- more explanation of the back stories; more insight into the relationships, existing & developing; more time spent by the hero & the heroine together so that their feelings make sense; better explanation of the logistics of everything, especially the deus ex machina ...more

She believes Sam is her new Master and tries to please him in every way. Sam has his own painful past and wants nothing to do with this slave girl no matter how tempting and believe me he is tempted.

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

I devoured this book in a matter of hours! I literally couldn't put it down, I kinda felt like Melody, I couldn't escape from the reality I was living in and, even if I wanted to, everything was too good for me to leave.

"Hear Me" is sexy, exciting and it has an unusual veil of romanticism (so to speak) that totally seduces you... You soon fall for someone, it's practically impossible not to, and fantasize about this character so much to

Shocked! Yet disappointed!

Skye is one of my favorite authors, I have loved every book so far, and I was really loving this story. Then she finds the collar and I started to think surely not, And then it all goes to hell in a hand basket! I did not see it coming! Truly disappointed! I like a little dark romance but this was uncomfortable, I wanted justice, I wanted tenderness and real caring and thought this was leading to what could have been an amazing story of healing and possibly retribution.

Hear Me was a strange read for me. I enjoyed it. It kept me on the edge of my seat. But it kind of fell apart at the end. I don't necessarily need a perfect, neat ending with all the loose ends tied up for me in a pretty ribbon. But I like at least some things to be clear. This was as clear as mud. Did Melody know Sam before or not?
Was she kidnapped or did she go willingly? Who is the real villain, Brandon or Sam? Is there a real villain? The HEA comes rather quickly in what felt like three
Hear Me by Skye Warren is a dark erotic romance. A young woman Melody escapes from a sex trafficking ring brutalized and with gaps in her memory. As she struggles to return to her life and fragments of memory come back, it becomes less and less clear what actually happened to her. The uncertainty of her recollection and whether or not her memory can be trusted is an interesting plot twist. The ending was not what I would have liked but perhaps it would work for some.
