3 Dark and Twisted Stars

This book is certainly NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED and NOT FOR THE YOUNG AUDIENCES , either.

Enslaved is an extremely dark book with brutal BDSM, 0.5% romance (?), and with a lot of gangbanging going on. All the scenes were quite disturbing, but I admit that the author is adept in this kind of subject. Marissa Honeycutt was able to bring out scenes that are overloaded with mind-fuckery. All throughout the book, I was like, "WHAT THE JERK IS GOING ON???"

So the stor

I don’t know how i feel about the characters .Anna is kinda annoying whinny naive little girl and devine is sneaky devil , Alex i have no clue what’s his problem , Kurt he is like teenager going through puberty , What makes this book cringe-worthy is «electricity shot through my body» line !!

Dark, Twisted, Depraved...and I couldn't put it down! Take this author's warning seriously! The brutality of Anna's daily life was horrifying. I love a dark, taboo story but her existence was a dismal one and I did a LOT of cringing while reading this book.

From the time she is a young girl, Anna is being conditioned for a life as a sex slave. She is beaten down, both mentally and physically, at the hands of her guardian, Jack, and his powerful friend, Devin. Raped, beaten and subjected to every

Anna's entire life was scripted out before she was born by Devin Andersen, a man who doesn't have her best interests in mind. She is to be a tool in his hands to gain ultimate power in the USA. No, not as the President, but as the man who controls the President.
Raised by an extremely abusive guardian, Anna was molded into the perfect sex slave for Devin's use. Devin will use

This is something I never read like before, it's beyond dark. I'm still feeling awed and terribly shaken to the core.

Some weird deep shit is going on in this book, something freaking dark, not the typical kinda dark you usually come across way darker than dark.

After reading this book I don't think anything can shake me.

trigger warnings for pedophilia, incest, torture, gore and every horrible thing you can think of

I read the first three books before giving up. I understand that this is "dark" but when there is incest and disgusting pedophilia casually happening I literally fucking lost it.

I- sis, what the fuck was I reading???

HELLO 911????? 😳😳😳😳😳😳

first thing i would like to talk about is the author's note. the author said that all sexual acts happening in the book are between adults.... aka 18 years old, right
I disliked this book intensely. Not for the ‘dark’ content – believe me, that is not dark. Not in the slightest. Nor for the ‘tough subjects’ – Want tough? Read The Jigsaw Man. Or even Heat. Those are what I call tough. Those are stories that had me wincing and (in the case of The Jigsaw Man) unable to re-read for a long time, even though the story, and the writing, were both fabulous.

I read the ‘Warning’ at the start of Enslaved although I found it something of a joke really, as if the author

Hmmmm...I love erotica as much as the next person and dark, twisted erotica is my kink..but we have a problem with this book. I expected mind fuckery, suspense, action, and for it to be a thrilling ride until the end. I love the thrill of dark books since it's supposed to make me bite my nails and want to delve into the character's dark world where emotions are raw and unfiltered. This book was more fluffy rabbits fucking daily where the heroine got repeatedly raped and fucked. I lost count of h ...more

4.5 Stars!

Anna’s story is told in five, novel-length books. There is a subculture within our own world that you’ve only heard whispers of. The conspiracy theorists wish they knew Anna’s story. What the conspiracy theorists think they know is only disinformation, put out there to keep them from the real story.

I'm mad at myself because I read this book on loan, I don't have my notes or highlights to fully review. I will make it quick.

It's really hard to find the right rating for this book, it wasn't really what I had expected only then to deliver what I regard as dark erotica. As much as I want to applaud the author for her story, some things were too much, others too few. There were some factors that just didn't work out for me. 3.25 stars.

We follow Anna through her torment and state of slavery. We get to know just as few as she does, which makes her stay naïve of some sorts without emotional development. Still, everyone kn

First gold star for being dark! Second gold star because every heinous act Anna endures pisses me off. All the men around uses, abuses, and takes advantage of her in one form or another. Third gold star for being suspenseful, still can't figure out what is going on. Fourth gold star for feeling all the anguish, pain this young naive girl suffers. Fifth gold star for making me want to read the next in the series. Now onto the review!

I'm so confused. What the hell was that? I've read my share of dark romances, where the girl falls for the one who is abusing her and treating her badly, but I have never, ever wanted to smack a girl so bad for being so gullible and naive and just plain stupid. I hated her 'beloved' Devin so much, I could barely stomach their sex scenes. The ones where the sex was between Anna and guys who actually had souls were sexy though. I'm left with so many questions and am sitting here asking myself, 'Wh ...more

I don't even know where to start in this twisted tale! I love, and I do mean LOVE dark reads. The darker the better. While this one was dark, it wasn't the darkest I've read, but it was good. Really good! Also, with the author's promise of more darkness to come in the series, that makes me want to jump right in to book two!

God I loved this book so much!! Every so often, whilst reading endless amounts of books, sometimes very similar books. You come across one that stands out from the crowd. One that is different, fresh, exciting, and addictive. A book, that has you glued to every word, on every page, and doing the whole "just one more chapter, then I'll sleep" thing. Then once this said book is finished, you're sat thinking about it for ages, and literally can't wait to get your hands on the next one. Well....Ensl ...more

Just to be clear - I rate books relative to their genre and this one is dark erotica.

And to get it out of the way before the interesting stuff, I'll mention some things I didn't like about the book. It starts off with heavy BDSM tones, and then retreats to numerous episodes of vanilla sex with several men. At first I found the sex scenes quite arousing, but then the excessive repetition left me cold. Same, same, over and over again, almost like a cut & paste operation. And the writing is often a

Oh freaking crap!! I asked for dark and this definitely fit the freaking bill!! It was dark, gritty, disgusting, confusing, alarming, and yet somehow sexy. I've already accepted my weirdness factor. Why haven't you?!

I normally don't recap the plot of books, but I just couldn't help myself to point out some parts to give a general idea of the twisted fu**ry that is this story.

My heart absolutely bled for Anna. She is so naive and confused. She has no idea what normal even is. Her normal is a fre
Absolutely brilliant. I just can not believe it. It's a book I loved to hate, it had me holding my breath, jumping up and down and shouting. I couldn't believe what I was reading. Anna is just such a sweet, mixed up kid, who's just not had the luck. Her parents died when she was young, and the courts sent to her stay with an "uncle". Her vaginity is taken at a very young age, but this is a passing reference. The story is so much more.... about how you see how a young, immature mind can be manipu ...more

Please take the warnings seriously because this story is dark, twisted and disturbing in so many ways! There are triggers for everyone there!

This is the story of Anna!

The story is dark and twisted as I said. There are lots things that I don’t understand in this story but it is so strong and so fast paced that I couldn’t give it up! Ms. Honeycutt has written a very disturbing story in a very innocent way. There are horrible things happening in this story and I had to accept them as the

Well, I hate to give a book 2 stars but this one did nothing for me. I found it very repetitive and there wasn't much happening to keep me totally interested. If you like a lot of sex with no plot or story line, you may find it enjoyable. No disrespect meant to the author or anyone who rated it high, but its not my type of book!!! ...more
This story had me captivated from start to finish. That said I am still not entirely sure what is going on. But then it is only part 1, so I guess that's to be expected.

Due to all the warnings I was expecting it to be much darker, however besides the non-con scenes I didn't find it overly dark, but then I am not new to the genre so might not be as sensitive to that type of content as others.

There were many sex scenes that were consensual as well, they were well written, although I got a little

Turns out this wasn't my jam. I like a good, dark story - but this seemed just cruel and strange. There is definitely a PNR/otherworld vibe. The writing was fine for me (could use a little editing) but it seemed the goal was to get every possible sex act crammed in there (no pun intended). I am curious about how this all turns out, and connection to Alex, and just who the heck Sebastian is...but I don't think I'm interested enough to continue the series. ...more

I had been warned by others as well as the author's product description warnings that there are dark themes within the story. I had initially decided against it, but then other members from both DMC and BDSM groups whom I trust and respect had given excellent reviews. So forewarned is forearmed and I had the opportunity to stop should it be more than I felt comfortable reading.

“Anna said that she couldn’t understand the men in her vision, but they kept repeating the number nine. I’m guessing the reason Anna couldn’t understand what they were saying was because they were speaking German. Nein is German for ‘no.’ It would make sense. If the two men were arguing, saying no repeatedly would be likely.” 0 likes
