So, I absolutely LOVE dark books.... kidnapping, Stockholm's, dark, dirty, punishing painful sex.....BRING.IT.ON.
While this book had a ton of promise it fell short for me. I imagine it is probably hard to write this type book and make it unique and fresh.. The premise was great, I absolutely loved the fact that it was a bit different. What pissed me the f' off is that I feel like all of the pivotal, kick ass parts were just grazed over. The part

Man, this book was not what I'd expected at all. Dark, scandalous, erotic, and full of twists, turns, and surprises that will definitely keep you glued to your kindles and constantly guessing.

A well written read, although, not for the faint of the heart since it can get pretty gritty and hard to take in at times.

Nonetheless, a highly recommended read!

This books is kind of twisted in some ways. I not sure if i would call it a love story and it definitely is a weird and usual love that develops between the two main characters Kristine and Garrett. Kristine and her two friends are kidnapped in a night club and they are being "Broken in" before going up for auction. Garrett and his brother Justin have joined these thugs and monster to find their sister, Andrea. She is seventeen and was captured too. Kristine is a fighter and is a really strong c ...more

Kidnapper that cares

If a kidnapper could be sweet, this guy managed it. Yes, it had some dark moments but, for the most part, the H was a good guy just trying to do the right thing. There were some parts that didn't make sense to me--things that happened too easily and too quickly--but it was a quick read with some hot scenes and a couple of HEAs so... four stars and I have high hopes for Cruel Boundaries. :)

That's how Kong it took me to read every single book and spin off related to this series by Michelle Horst. Now its Friday afternoon and I have only taken cat naps and small snack breaks my assistant forced on me as I kept waving her away and mumbling some crap like "It's for work I just need to finish this one part and I will be right there!" I'm not usually a liar. I guess technically this could be classified as "for work" if I need to justify it to myself, or my as

Received an ARC for an honest review

Michelle Horst has truly explored the darkest of the darkest in her latest book Dark Boundaries.

I was blown away. From the very romantic Wake Me Up and Chloe, Michelle Horst has went beyond her usual with Dark Boundaries.

Living up to its title, the book is indeed bound. It's full of cruelness and ruthless. Though, it was very effective. I felt that Michelle did her best to push her limits when it comes to writing.

Wow! Dark Boundaries is an excellent start to this series! Garrett and Justin's life will change in ways they've never thought possible!

Garrett and Justin go rogue in order to rescue their baby sister. The things they were forced to do to maintain their cover devastate both Justin and Garrett. However, the two continue the charade as they cannot return home without their little sister.

During a particular nasty assignment the brothers meet their soul mates. The guys have their work cut out for th

Dark Boundaries lives up to it's name, it's truly a dark, twisted tale.
It's vicious, cruel and I found myself questioning some of the heroine's choices. I loved her for her choices but also wondered how the hell she could do it.
I also understood Garrett's reasoning in the choices he made but as much as I understood I still found myself wanting to hate him for something, just because of what he was involved in I felt the need to find something, anything to hate him for.
No spoilers. Dark Boundarie

Talk about a twisted mess of chaos and forbidden love. This was a total change of pace from what I’ve come to know about Michelle Horst, and she brought out the darkness in a big way! Definitely not a story for the faint of heart, but if you want to take a ride on the dark train, step on up!

Kristine and her two friends, Kelly and Riza thought a night out at a kink club would be fun and adventurous, little did they know, they’d end up victims of a kidnapping and sex ring. So the journey begins, o

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a dark read so be warned as some events in the book can cause triggers.
We follow the story of Kristine and her friends as they take a year out after college to go on a road trip. One night in Vegas they decide to go to a strip club and events happen that they really didn't expect or envisage. They are all kidnapped and then taken to be trained as sex slaves. Two of their captors are brothers but they ar

Warning this book is not for the faint of heart . Make sure you read the author's warning because this sure is Dark and i mean DARK. If you are not a fan of dark reads steer clear this will not be the read for you. I've read some dark reads before but, damn this book is just gritty. I loved it but its raw, grimy, and dirty. At some point through the story you find it to be some part erotic but in your head your thinking why am I finding this just so dirty that its sexy. It's not all dark their a ...more

Wow. This book was definitely not like any of Michelle's that I've read before, and I say that in the best way possible! Michelle really has a fantastic way with getting any story told and this was no different. This book was intense, emotion, gripping, but definitely not for the faint of heart. I loved the darker story line than I'm used to reading from Michelle. If anyone is looking for a story that's all-consuming and will keep you on edge, check this out!!!

The synopsis of this book drew me to it immediately. I'm a sucker for Dark romance so I had to read it.

This review is quite hard to write as there are so many twists happening, that I can not say much.

What I can say though is that I really enjoyed reading Dark Boundaries.

If you love an unusual/ twisted love story, where the heroe is not who you think he is, where the heroine goes through horrific events and is damaged, this book is for you.

Dark Boundaries is for me a love story with a

Kris, Kelly and Riza are best friends and they've decided on a year break after collage to take a trip together. As they end up in one club things go wrong and they're taken to be made into slaves but things aren't as they seem, two brothers have hidden agendas, they don't plan on hurting the girls the way the others do.

This storyline is very dark and heartbreaking. It kept me interested from the beginning, I couldn't wait to see how everything tur

Oh. My. Gosh.
The title made me assume that Dark Boundaries was going to be some-what and so it was. This was more than I thought it would be. This is was an overwhelming and sometimes upsetting story but I loved the way Michelle wrote it. It was definitely a rollercoaster of emotions that I felt but I couldn’t put it down (which says something). The relationship between Kristina and Garret was quite twisted but also intriguing. I applaud you Michelle for writing this. I will continue to read the

If you don't like dark reads then this book isn't for you. There are some heavy situations that some people might find difficult to read!!

There is alot of twists in this book that will keep your gripped, praying that Kris will find safety and love that she so much deserves. Garrett do I love or hate him? The evil kidnapper but you also see a caring, loving, protective side of him.

I really enjoyed this book and seeing both points of view. You can see both sides of the story. Why Garrett's doing w

I love Michelle's books. Her writing style is amazing. She draws you in and shows you exactly what the character is thinking, so that you can feel their emotions. This book lives up to it's name. It's dark and the characters go through things you would never want someone to have to go through. Your heart breaks with them and heals with them. This is an amazing story. It is darker than Michelle's other books but I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
I love this book so much!

Michelle Horst clearly came out of her comfort zone in order to write this Dark Boundaries. This is very different from. the author's previous work.
This book is dark but the author shows how the power of love could make a dark story becomes better.

That was some crazy twisted shit! It's all kinds of messed up but I loved it! I really enjoy reading dark romances and love when I get sucked into the story. I did just that with this story. I could not put it down. I'm eager to read more from Michelle Horst.

After reading this book, I had to take a break and really think of what I felt. So many thoughts swirled around in my head and I was thinking about it for a long time afterwards. It took me ages to figure out what I wanted to say about it afterwards. I’d read one book by this author previously, and this was so different I was really taken by surprise!
Now - straight off the bat, this is a DARK read! It won’t be for everyone. If you’re looking for a hearts and flowers romance, this is not it. If
