I'm Devon Harper and there are only two certainties in my life:

1. I live to dance.
2. I'm a prostitute.

Do you know when your life is suddenly turned upside down? Setting in action a sequence of events, you never saw coming.

This review may contain spoilers.

The book started off good. Girl gets taken so she can take her moms place as the favorite prostitute let's say. I felt bad for Devon numerous times but that's where I also drew the line. I know what I get myself into when I pick up a dark read but it doesn't mean all I want to read is about the poor victim getting raped constantly. Even in other dark reads theres more to the story. The only time she was ever prostituted was w

This is a dark and twisted erotica story. If you don't like gut wrenching dark stories then I think you should give this a miss. However if your like me and you love a story that contains warnings then get 1-clicking.

Devons had a rough childhood. Her mum was a prostitute. When her mum died her boss expects Devon to take over the job as a prostitute. Devons life then goes from bad to worse. What she goes through is a nightmare and not easy to read. Like her mum there is no way out for her. What

I am a big fan of dark erotica and dark romance. I have read a wide range of books from many different authors and what I have come to recognize is that there is a fine line between dark and books written purely for shock value. To me this book was all about the shock value. I can handle rape, torture, pain, murder and incest but there needs to be a solid story behind it. I did not connect with the characters in this book. I needed my heroine to have more fight in her. I needed to see more growth. I ...more

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. When I first got this book I knew nothing about it but the more I get into this book the more I understood where it was going. This book however is a very dark read and you should be aware of it before buying it.

In the beginning of this book we meet Devon she is a relatively happy girl. She knows that her mom is a prostitute but feels this does not effect her young life. The next chapter we get to is when Devon is 18 years old her mom has bee

Holy Cow I feel blown away right now. I just finished Warrant by S.L. Schiefer. What Devon goes through is mind boggling. How could anyone be normal after what has happened to her I don't know. And, no I can't tell you about what happened in her life you will have to read Warrant to know. All I know is I couldn't put this book down until I completed it! The good news is there is an HEA at the end of the book

Oh and here is the WARNING, and it is a BIG WARNING! This is a dark erotica/t

S.L. Schiefer gives readers a warning at the beginning of this book. I would strongly suggest anyone interested in reading this book to heed that warning. This is a VERY dark book. There are a lot of violent and taboo elements written throughout the story. With that being said, I felt like it was very well written. The heroine goes through hell and back...several times over. However, she never seems to lose herself. She wants out of this life that she's been dealt. She wants better for herself, ...more

Warrant had me hooked from the first line! I couldn't put it down, I didn't want to put it down. It's dark, suspenseful and will mess with your head, all around fantastic!

Devon is handed a life that she doesn't deserve, but she takes it in stride vowing to come out on top. time in the book that you don't want to cry for Devon is going through but knowing the person she is and how strong and determined she is to change her life you hold out hope that she will dow everything in her pow

OMG! There really are no words but I will try. This story was gritty, dark, and cruel. This is not a typical romance story. This is as story of pain, betrayal, and survival. It is heart wrenching and I cried several times. I can't imagine what it took to write this story. There are several twists I didn't see coming that blew my mind. I am still trying to process everything.

I LOVED this book! It's officially been moved to my top five favorite books of all time! This book is taboo and the topics it covers are generally triggers for many people - which means, yes! It's a DARK read! But I love this book because S.L Schiefer did an amazing job developing deep characters, showing instead of telling emotion throughout the book, and developing an amazing story line. This story is harsh, gritty, and raw but I love it because it's REAL! This shit happens in real life, we ju ...more

I'm a dark lover, I love all things twisted, taboo and seedy. I can't help it, I like the raw grittiness that comes from a read that stretches those boundaries. Where morals are questioned and lines are crossed. So when an author has a warning at the beginning of the book such as this one has I always get a little tingle, my heartbeat speeds up a little because I know what I'm going to read will undoubta

First of all WOW. When I was told this was a dark erotica, I thought okay I will judge that when I read it. It has taken me nearly two years to review this book = oops, sorry.
The caution is definitely something to read and take note of. I read reviews on goodreads of people saying they were unable to finish this book because of how gut turning it was.

Devon is a 21 year old girl trying to finish college dancing, as stated above dancing is her main passion and it helps her comple

This book is dark, a little twisted and definitely not for the faint of heart or easily offended. Devon Harper had a hard childhood, her mother was a prostitute but she didn't always know or understand that. The one thing that Devon has always loved is dancing, it helped her get through her childhood. Her mother told her once that if something ever happened to her to run. Devon didn't listen. Right around the time she turned 18 her mother was gone for longer than usually and then they came for h ...more

Original Blog Post: Blog Tour, eARC Review: Warrant by S.L. Schiefer

When I read that Warrant was dark erotica, I never expected that S.L. Schiefer would come up with a story as disturbing as this! This novel is as out there as can be, with hardly anything in it considered as acceptable in normal society. The only reason I am reviewing it, however, is while there may be people that find it disturbing, to say the least, all this and more happens to people working in the sex industry and worse to

Ok have you ever gone into a book after reading the warning at the beginning that says this is a dark read, gives you things that are in the book and warns you that if this is something you can't handle, please don't read this book?

I received an ARC of Warrant in exchange for an honest review. Before you decide to read this amazing story, I want you to read the note from the Author. That's your time to decide if this book is for you or not. It's certainly not for the weak.

Holy of all Holiness. I am speechless. I was bawling my eyes out the entire time. Powerful, Powerful, Powerful read. Completely breaks my heart knowing people go through this torture on a daily basis. This is REAL, it's not Fiction. I am so happy that Schiefer has put this

I thought the book was very well written. The characters were very well developed and the story flowed well. Granted it wasn't always easy to read some of the scenes but there was also a warning at the start of the book so anyone that continued to read past that point, you have no one to blame but yourself. No this wasn't your fairy tale romance and all the fluff that goes with it but the author did a great job keeping things real and showing us that for as much good that goes on in this big wor ...more

This book starts off with a note from the author warning the reader that Warrant is not your typical love story. Many lines are crossed and the main character goes through some pretty tough stuff. The author also states that the reader should proceed at their own risk - that this book is a dark erotica/taboo romance.

Well in my opinion, this should have been stated in the synopsis - maybe a warning of some sort. That way a potential reader knows what they are getting into BEFORE they plop down the money to p

We have all seen it before – Author guidelines and warnings at the beginning of a book or plastered all over the blurb – well if you are anything like me you probably dive straight in with little regards for the warning thinking – what’s the worst that can happen?
WELL, I can assure you that I won’t be doing it again!!
S.L. Schiefer clearly gives a warning at the beginning of this book and it is not just to take up space!! This is a very dark read and will not be everyone’s cup of tea so PLEASE

This is a really dark novel and I definitely advise readers to steer clear if they are even the slightest bit sensitive to sexual abuse. Generally, I'm not one to frown upon content that is thrown at me but I have to admit, this book was on the edge for me.
Not due to the violent and sexual content but due to the morality of the situation.

Warrant by S.l Shiefer
4 1/2 stars

First, to get it out of the way, pay attention to all the warnings about the subject matter, and triggers, because the author gives you a heads up on purpose, if any of the topics warned about are triggers for you, it's probably not the book for you.

I loved this book, and here's why, in the end, and even throughout, I felt it was more a story of survival, strength and he

A Very Dark Taboo Read
This book is dark, and I've read some dark books, but I think this is the darkest. I don't shock easily, but I do have to say during this read I was shocked on more than one occasion, the author describes things in graphic detail. Even if you are a lover of a dark read, this may push at some of your boundaries. The author does put a warning at the beginning of the book and I strongly advise you read and heed it. If you have triggers from things like rape and serious v

I was honored when, after being in contact with S.L. Schiefer on her Facebook page that I was able to review this book. I will give fair warning to everyone though. This book deals with a lot of dark subjects, including rape, prostitution, murder and the like. Though it is dark subjects, the attention to detail by Schiefer was amazingly well done.

Devon, on the outside, appears to be a normal college girl but she really is dragged into a world that is utterly unspeakable though happen
