The first of four serials, this story certainly doesn't waste any time! I listened to the Audible version this morning and within the first few minutes our heroine, Hannah, is having kinky sex with a stranger. That was the first time that her identity was mistaken for her twin sister's. Despite feeling guilty for having sex with her sister's unwitting boyfriend, she can't deny that it was the best sex of her life.

When her sister, Harley, is killed, Hannah's life is turned upside down. Forced to

A Review of Dark Domination (Bought By The Billionaire, Book 1) by Lili Valente

Holy Hotness Jackson!! 5+++++ stars

Lili has come up with an awesomely amazing new series. Twins Hannah and Harley were dramatically different from each other, with Hannah being the softer, kinder of the two. I am looking forward to learning more about the family they were born into and flesh out some of the hints that were provided in this first book.

Jackson is an ex-Marine that has turned to arms dealing who ruined h

Very sexy and intriguing!

Great dark read! The Hero, Jackson, is out for revenge against a woman he once knew and trusted who set him up, who he thought died six years ago. When he finds out she is still alive, he sets her up and brings her to a remote island where he owns her for a month.

However, the woman who set him up is the heroine’s twin and she did die six years ago. Surprise! Also the Hero and heroine have met once on the night the sister died. In the sisters bed, but the Hero thought it

Kind of strange...

Dark Domination was a pretty erotica kind of book - yet it was also a little confusing. It's about Hannah, who had a twin sister named Harley, and how she was bought by a stranger. He just happens to be a billionaire and such and out for revenge. Jackson has been hurt by Harley and when he finds Hannah, thinking she's actually Harley, well he wants to teach her a lesson.

Of course things start to heat up between the two. I have a feeling that he actually called her Hannah once o
"Death was too good for her. Too peaceful. He was going to break her down, force her to acknowledge the darkness inside of her, and then feed her soul, piece by piece, through the shredder, until she was too shattered to face her reflection in the mirror. He wanted every waking moment of her life to be a punishment to be endured, not a gift to be enjoyed."

What?? NOOO! This book is only 145 pages long!? Just when things started to heat up it just ended, JUST ENDED!

Dark Domination

Oh man. This quick read, ending in a cliffy is the WORST case of mistaken identity. Hannah is confused with her conniving sister, Harley, and ends us having a night of exquisite passion with Harley's boy-toy of the moment, Jackson. Hannah offers token protests to Jackson's sensual assault but totally gives into his mastery of her body. That one night changes Hannah forever, in more ways than one. She finds out things about her family from her aunt Sybil that cause them to go on th

A superb, dark and sexy escape.

If you like your men dominant and want a sexy take with a good twist, look no further, be prepared for an interesting plot mixed in with super hot detailed sexy encounters.

I grabbed this on KU as I like about of dark romance. I'd not read this author before but absolutely will again, starting with the next in this saga. This was pure fiction escapism.

If you dream of a man like this but are middle aged with a man who would rather watch sport then escape into some bo

There's no way this book was 145 pages(GR or 158 Amazon). I read it in less than an hour... I don't normally read serials until after they have all been published because they usually get bundled together anyway.

All that being said i really enjoyed this short read. It had sex and some mystery which i enjoy very much. Hopefully the rest of the installments will be out soon so that i can finish it!

A spin on the evil twin--I don't think I've ever read one where the evil twin was a girl ;)
This was an interesting concept and I loved Jackson's character. He was such an asshole. At least, he was at the end. I do wish we would have gotten to see more of what Hannah's sister actually did to him to mess him all up in the head, but maybe that's in the next book?? I'm still deciding if I liked it enough to invest the $9 to finish out the series.

Wow! This book was full of twists and surprises that I did not see coming.

After one night of crazy passion with her twin sister's unknowing boyfriend, Hannah's life takes a drastic turn for the worst. Forced to abandon her life and identity she is struggling to make ends meet when she is offered an interesting proposition.

Little does she know that by accepting the offer she will be placing herself in the hands of a man hell bent on getting his revenge on her. When Hannah realizes this man has

Though I hate "serials", I really liked the start of this one. Good story set up made from mistaken identity. He (Jackson) hates her (Hannah) because he thinks she is someone she's not.....her twin sister. It may sound little outlandish, but the way that the story is told, it's believable.

This is a dark read with a dominance/submissive tone.

Will definitely read book 2 next.

I read this a few years back but I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I enjoyed Harley’s story even more. There is intrigue and these books are hot. I enjoy this author. She writes strong-minded and pragmatic heroines and her heroes are alpha and intelligent. The pacing of this book was fast, which I enjoyed. This book ends on a cliffhanger but it’s a great series. I always look for more from this author.

Well in the hoped for and expected fashion from Lili Valente, Dark Domination was sexy and blazing hot hot hot! The passionate connection between these characters, albeit some stemming from hurt and mistrust from the past as well as unexpectedly arousing and exciting, it is absolutely unsurpassed in other erotic romance novels I have previously read, except possibly from Ms. Valente’s first series. So be ready for the increase in your own heart rate as you turn page after page in this amazing ne ...more

I read Lili's first series Under His Command and I loved it. No one does erotic romance like Lili Valente! Jackson Hawke is out for revenge on the girl who he loved and thought loved him back. One night of passion years ago was different and he thought Harley had finally fallen for him. Turns out it wasn't Harley at all and then she ends up dead, but not before ruining his life. Hannah, Harley's twin sister was the one who shared that night with Jackson. She never knew who he was, but after 6 ye ...more

Lili Valente has become one of my favorite and top author. There wasn't a moment that I didn't love Dark Domination. What would you do if one night of passion, mistaken for your twin sister, is the night that changes everything? The night of the BEST SEX of your life and the man that has left you branded. Every relationship after, never coming close to what you felt, in that moment, with the mysterious man you promised to love. That same night, your other half, your twin Harley is killed in a ca ...more

I read this book solely for the cover...and that's what I get for being estupid.

Did I laugh? Heck yeah!!! The entire thing was soooo dumb I couldn't help bust out laughing. I almost added it to my "made me cry shelf" because it was that bad!!!

I'd like to brag that I narrarated this book to my bestie and she wanted to give it 4 stars for my stellar performance, but Nay, I wouldn't let her. The only reason it's getting 2 stars were for the nonstop laughs and fits of giggles it brought out.

4.5 "Pleasure/Pain" Stars!!!

This was one of the hottest things I've read in a while. I'm talking off the charts H.O.T.!!! The set-up reminded me of Debt Inheritance series which I loved! I loved that it ended in a cliffhanger that normally would have killed me. However, I have the whole set so that ending just made me love it more. My only problem. Way too short. Give me More!!!

Holy hotness! This book was short, sexy, edgy, intense, raw, and dark. This book was crazy hot and made me have to take a breather. I devoured this book is one sitting, craving to know more. That ending was absolutely killer as this is part of a series. You've been warned . . .

Every now and then I like dark romances. Some romances that many people would consider taboo. This is definitely one of them.

The characters are intriguing but I wished that I learned more about them. I have so many questions left unanswered that I couldn't justifiable give this book more than 3 stars.

Ultimately, this is a sexually charged novella that leaves you wanting more. Unfortunately to read more and probably get your answers you have to pay $3.00 for each installment. I will probably wa

Lili Valente has slept under the stars in Greece, eaten dinner at midnight with French men who couldn't be trusted to keep their mouths on their food, and walked alone through Munich's red light district after dark and lived to tell the tale.

These days you can find her writing in a tent beside the sea, drinking coconut water and thinking delightfully dirty thoughts.
