“Do you promise to never let anything or anyone come between us?”
Altered State (stand-alone) is an erotic thriller with a twist. It’s a tale of and how we cannot help who we fall in love with. It covers deceit, infidelity, betrayal and lies as a husband embarks on an erotic journey while his wife looks on.
Yet this story is not so much about cheating and infidelity, nor lying ...more
No? Then let Altered State be your first!
Let me preface my review with one MAJOR thing- do NOT read any reviews of this book unless you know it's spoiler-free. Got it? Because, hole-eee-smokes, there's horribly plot-spoilered reviews out there. Like, "Why bother to read the book now?" reviews. Seriously people, go in as blind as possible. My review is going to be vague as heck because, yes, this is one crazy ride! In fact, it doesn't feel crazy at all as you're reading alon ...more
Wow what a crazy-ass book this was for sure! I had no intentions of reading this anytime soon but when you get a call from your blog partner who's freaking out over a plot twist, what kind of friend would I be if to not jump on the crazy train with her? :D Which btw, thanks Allison for pulling me into this hot messed up helluva mindfuck read on an absolute whim ♥
It's really tough to say anything much about the book without giving it away but depending how you like your reads to be, ...more
This is a two hundred page quick exciting read that I found to be quit enjoyable. I did however guess the events to come early on in the story. However, the author had me guessing if I was right to the very last page.
The story is so much more than a husband cheating on his insecure wife with the obnoxious unapologetic mistress tale. There are a few twists and turns that will sure surprise readers. As for this author’s writing, except for the overdose of song titles scattered throug ...more
This was my first read by this author and it certainly won’t be my last. I don’t know what I expected, but I know for sure I didn’t expect this read to be such a mindfuck. Even without the mindfuck aspect, the story would have been really entertaining. Anyway, my advice – don’t read any spoiler-ish reviews, because this is a book you have to experience for yourself.
“Altered State” was a captivating, fast-paced mystery/psychological thriller that not only it fucked up with my head, but also kept ...more
However with my keen mindfuck reading skills, I knew what was happening which kind of put a damper on it. Even though the author did a fantastic job of trying to prove me wrong, I still wasn't falling for it. :)
This still kept me flipping pages like a maniac, and was an awesome story. Would recommend this twisted tale.
This was my first read from Ella Dominguez. I usually judge book from its cover but now I have to swallow my own words LOL. I was searching for something new dark and twisted story and I remember about this book. BAM! This is gonna be short review and my advice is go blind.
Altered State is a story between Miranda who works at bridal shop and married Zeke; a handsome lawyer. Something's wrong with their marriage. It was intimacy and romance. Her husband is distancing hi ...more

Beauty lies in the truth
This is a psychological thriller that had me on edge and guessing the whole time. So many twist and turns so when I thought I figured it out, I was thrown in a complete other direction to come back again. As the true story unfolds, I am so stunned! But I do like the way things end and can see everything being sorted out, with even an HEA.
I would classify this book as an erotic psychological mystery. This book is very difficult to review without revealing major spoilers.
I thought I knew what was going to happen in this book but I was wrong and also right on some instances. I just had the wrong cheater and cheated or so to speak?
One of the reasons I gave this book 5 stars is the way in which the author writes the erotic scenes. There was nothing harsh, cheesy, silly or weird about them. I was able to ...more
If you are a fan of angst, twists, and psychological thriller then Altered State by Ella Dominguez might be the book for you. This book was all about the mind games but however I did find myself in the beginning suspecting the surprising twist in the book. With that being said, overall I think this was an enjoyable read to get lost in as insecure wife deals with her marital issues.
Buckle up buttercups because Ella Dominguez is taking you on a wild ride of suspense and who's who. As the author eloquently says, "no lie lasts forever" you will see just what that statement truly means. (view spoiler)[What do you do and how do you feel when your mistress kills your wife? To complicate matters more, the mistress turns out to be your wife's long lost sister, and only one sister remembers even having a sister. Yep, a lot going on
When I read Altered State, I was not, by any means, expecting to be tossed around like a rag doll in a playful puppy’s mouth. I was not expecting to have a ridiculous theory about how it would play out, only to have said ridiculousness sort of come true but in reverse, out of the outfield, to hit me in the face in the batter’s bo ...more
OMG! No, seriously...OMG!!!

A wife who will do whatever it takes to save her marriage, but feels her husband wants her to be someone else.
This story will play with your emotions. An intriguing mindfuck starting from page 1. When you think you have it figured out, the author throws a new element and the ride is not over.
I recommend to go in blind, so I can not reveal much ab ...more
I'm sat here speechless at what I've just read! This is one helluva 5 star read and I urge you all to pick it up and give it a chance!
I started stalking Ella after reading Becoming Sir, which blew me away for different reasons. When asked to read Altered State, I jumped at the chance and am glad I did. From the outset you're thrust into a who done it scenario and no matter what ...more
Only a couple of things you're getting out of me! There isn't anything to say without giving away something. For the love of God people, do not ruin this for others!

This book is about infidleity, but it's not. It's about lying and cheating, murder and mayham, but it's not. What it is about is love and ho ...more
Rebecca Roberts: ★★★★★
Mateo Reaté: ★★
A complicated love triangle leaves two women desperately grasping at the love that only one man can provide. It’s a story about love; finding it, holding onto it, and the extremes a person would go for it.
Going into this read I thought it would be a fairly straightforward plot, where I only had to assign the labels ‘murderer’, ‘liar’, and ‘cheater’ to the right characters. While this is true in a sense, it was definitel ...more
This author wrote really well which is why my emotions were all entangled for 80% of this book.
The end was a mindf**k. my head was swimming with possibilities coming down to the wire.... Thankfully the very end left a smile on my face.
This book reminded me strongly of another book which i cannot mention without spoiling both books. If you read both, you would know what I'm talking abo ...more
