Warning the images in this review maybe too explicit and I possibly maybe be banished from good reads, I advise that minors just fucking look away and go about your sunny days. As for my fellow friends who know me prepare for a steamy review ;)

This is the second Tara Crescent book I've read and oh my God, she can create such great characters. I love her unique storytelling and I was so excited when I was handed this review copy. The Watcher will be included in The Darker Side of Love anthology.
The book follows Kelly, a successful fashion designer and a woman with one great fear; Alzheimer. Her mother was diagnozed with the disease at a very young age and at 53 she has forgotten her own daugh

HOLY SHIT! Ok, well how do I review this book????
Lets start off by saying I am a big fan of Tara Crescent I don't think I have read a book of hers that I haven't enjoyed. Now that being said, I have to say this is my ALL TIME FAVORITE book of Tara Crescent's. This is the first time she has written anything dark and I personally hope she continues.
Kelly and Miles grew up next door to one another in Akron Ohio and even though he is five years her senior she always had a little crush on him. He mo
5 Dark and twisty stars!

I'm used to reading light, happy BDSM romances by Tara Crescent so while I knew this was goigng to be darker, I had no idea what really awaited me.

First of all, I adored this book! It was definitely darker and more intense than anything I've read from this author before. Emotionally, this book was twisted. It wasn't only the physical scenes which were dark (and believe me, they were plenty mind screwy), but the psychological element was pretty powerful too.

Kelly is such a

Review for The Watcher by Tara Crescent

“Dream of forgetting. Dream of remembering.
Dream of oblivion, my pet.”

Really. Just. Wow.
I’ve read at least ten titles from Tara Crescent and she has never once disappointed me, but The Watcher … this one caught me off guard. I was warned it would be dark, potentially disturbing, what I didn’t fully grasp was how devastatingly emotional this would be. I know I say this in almost every review for Crescent’s books, but her ability to put SO much heart in

Tara Crescent
3.5 stars

Kelly is looking an out. Her job is stressful. Her mother is sick. She needs something to ease her pain and put a void in her mind so she cant think. The illness her mother has could be passed down to her or her children. She is running scared and she doesn’t want to be anymore. When Miles, her childhood friend introduces her to his club she never thought she would feel what she does. Miles was a nerd. A geek of science; not a dominant, he couldn’t be. To her sur

This book is very, very dark. If you are looking for a feel good read keep looking. Kelly is a fashion designer in training who is overwhelmed by her mothers early onset of Alzheimers. It is pure hell for her to see the changes that are happening to her mom and she is so afraid the same will happen to her. She does not see a future for love, marriage,husband or kids. So she has locked her emotions away and the only way fo
I recieved The Watcher by Tara Cresent in exchange for an honest review.

The Watcher was a darker, grittier story of a woman that is into Masochism. There aren't any limits that she is willing to safeword for. Kelly is a masochist that wants to explore her limits within the supposed safe confines of a high end elite club. She gets the stamp of approval to get into the club by Miles St. Clair who is a childhood friend that grew up to be a billionaire. He ushers her into the club that she had no cl

This is the second story I have been honored to read by Tara. I read it three times! The story consumed me. Like Kelly, I am a child of not one but two loved ones that had Alzheimer's. No one can ever understand the process of darkness that begins to creep and consume you while trying to deal with your loved one being robbed of everything they are.....everything you are. No control. Nothing you can do. Are you next? When? The pain encompassing all that you are until a

Hello, I’m Tara Crescent. I've always fantasized about being a mysterious spy, leading a secret double-life, and now, I find that that’s come true!

Sort of.

By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I sit, and I type, and I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance.

In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, trave
