4 I want you Stars

This is my first Clarissa Wild book. I’m a sucker for dark reads and kidnaping books. I’m also a sucker for redemption stories and MMF scenes. Yes, you heard that right, there is MMF in there. So this is a purely erotica dark-ish kidnapping book. You take it for what it’s worth.

Slave 5947 is purchased by Master Marcus. She now named Ava and she doesn’t understand Marcus’ “kindness”. She’s use to being treated poorly with regular beatings, but when Marcus tells her to stop apolo
I am not even sure what exactly to rate this one as I'm a little bit on the shelf with it. I am not totally sure what to think if I am being honest! It wasn't bad; but it didn't totally wow me either. It is a dark book and there were directions in which this story went where I was surprised, and then there were other things that happened that turned out to be way too predictable. I am being cryptic; but this is a story in which I wouldn't want to give anything away.

Having a hard time rating this...First of all, I have to say that I am a huge Clarissa Wild fan. I've read most of her books and I love her dark writing.
I am also a lover of the dark side, so these thoughts have nothing to do with how dark the book was.
The book is really dark. Our heroine was captured as a child and sold into slavery. She has been brainwashed, she has been conditioned to actually want her life as a slave. Her ma

Ultimate Sin - where 2 Stars can be a thing of beauty.

As always with Clarissa Wild, this was a story with lots of unexpected outcomes. Right from the start it was apparent that this was going to be a harrowing story as we get to meet the key players. From abuse to protection, readers are taken on a journey of hope in the face of trepidation.

I must admit that I'm not a great lover of Master/Slave stories as I find them too uncomfortable to fully enjoy the reading experience but that sai

Because to me, you are the golden girl. A girl worth fighting for with every last ounce of my blood.

This book is about a man trying to make up for some of the mistakes he has made in the past. Marcus is the leader of a dark, vicious underground empire but is very fed-up for being part of it. He has done a lot of evil things and now seeks to atone for these crimes. He buys Ava from one or his very abusive crime-partners and is determined to show her that she is as much human as him and that she

This started out great I loved the way it started. I Love the premise of this story! The characters were interesting & loveable, Well, almost all of them. The writing had me really invested early on...

If you can make it through the 1st couple of chapters that's as dark as it gets. There are other dark elements, but they are told as flashbacks. I did feel disappointed in the way the story turned around the 80% mark. I thought the story was going one way & I kept waiting for a shoe t

Holy Smokes! This book is insane, wrong, dark yet absolutely amazing!

As a lot of people know l hate love triangles they infuriate me, but in Ultimate sin Clarissa Wild made it work and I enjoyed reading it without getting irritated or annoyed.

l love the inner strength of each Character, even though on the surface they're a vulnerable as you can get.

l absolutely loved the twists and turns, and ever though a few chapters from the end was virtually impossible, the author made it won.

Ehhh, has anyone seen the drool-worthy back this delicious man is sporting? If you haven't, there's something wrong with you. Pour me some holy water, my hormones are exploding like the freaking fourth of July. Those are some goddamn muscles I haven't seen before.

And the blurb? Jeez, SIGN ME UP.
This book was a mindfuck. I'm still trying to get my head wrapped around it. I really liked it and totally recommend it. It held me from the beginning.

It's the story of undoing forced submission. This isn't really BDSM. This is a whole different 50 shades of fucked up.

While this is a story about the modern industry of servants and sex-slaves, it's really more about a man trying to bring it down...from the inside while he tries to heal the h and help her find happiness. And it will all go down li
This was another winner for me. I was in the mood for a TPE book with a kind rather than cruel master and I came across this one. I'm so glad I did, it was exactly what I was in the mood for. This book was a little dark and twisty with a healthy dose of kink on the side.

Marcus was just yummy, I was seriously rooting for him and Ava, the ending just freaking killed me. I saw it coming a mile off and I really wish I hadn't. I wish I could change things. This did have a HEA not just the one I wante

It’s not a bad book. But it seemed so unbelievable to me that I couldn’t understand the point.

I love Clarissa Wild! I love her writing! But here I just missed something, even though the plot was very tangled.

This is such a story that will have you held in suspense, in disbelief and will also be rooting for the antihero to find love even though all the bad he has done. There is so many levels of sin to wade thru, its as though you think you will never come out and know up from down and that is ok, I liked it.
This was such a dark and compelling read. I literally had tears pouring down my face as I read Marcus and Ava ‘s story. Marcus has this dark vibe and he gets his point across that he will get bro

I was about to give this book 4-5 stars until i reached the middle. It started off slow but with tons of feeling. I quickly started feeling remorse for the main character, Ava. But the more characters got involved, the more stretched the story got and it just started to drag on.

Just when i started reading, I was met with 2 short passages that made me want to sink my teeth into this book, lol:

This is the second book I read by Clarissa Wild and I really enjoyed it. I loved that it was different. I have read many dark romance books but this one was a bit different though. There were a couple of plot twists which I didn't see coming. I am happy that some things weren't predictable.

I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's release day promotions.

I think I've already said this numerous times that every now and then, I get this craving to read dark romance. And there's only very few authors who excel in this genre. Clarissa Wild happens to be one of them. I loved Stalker and Twenty-One. I was excited for this book because the blurb was very intriguing. There's a lot of master/slave romance going on these days

I have read so many of these dark slave/Master books and for a while I was getting burned out...but then along comes Clarissa Wild's advance reader's copy in my kindle and I was once again sucked into this depraved and utterly sinful world that captured my attention while making me agitated.
A slave girl, a cruel Master, a game of power and another Master who wants redemption...this one was very engrossing and even as I was reading, hoping things would get better, it kept me on edge until the ver

I'm on the fence about this book. It was good, but it didn't *grab* me..

Marcus is trying to correct the mistakes he's made in the past. In doing so he "rescues" Ava and Daniel.

Ava is broken, almost beyond repair. Marcus has resuced her from a horrible Master, one that beat and abused her on a daily basis. All she knows how to feel is pain. All she knows how to be is a slave.

When Marcus buys her, she is shocked and shaken that her "origi

Man, what to say? Clarissa Wild fuck you head.
I started the book thinking it a bit boring, I imagined it would be like the other books, like a Delirious: The Master, The Victim and a makeup rape. Buuuuut, is not at all.
It's about a forgiveness, love and restart.

I absolutely love Clarissa Wild's mind. This is the story of Marcus who makes desperate decisions in a desperate situation. Can you ever be forgiven for committing the ultimate sin? I very much appreciated the twists this story took. And the big reveal at the end made me tear up.

Clarissa Wild takes us into the darkness.... and sheds some light.

She gives us Ava.  Taken as a child... her family murdered in front of her on Christmas Day. Trained to be a servant... of every kind.

She knows that she must please her Master or be punished.

She finds herself with a new Master.  A Master that confuses her as he asks her to break all the rules she knows.  To express her thoughts, to feel.


Master Marcus... Cruel or not?

What is his end game? Is he just toying with Ava?

I received this for a honest review. Every book I read of Clarissa Wild I wonder if she can ever top that book because each book she puts out is just amazing. WOW, she really out done herself. This book is on the dark side but wow the meaning and lessons in the book are truly something. When I saw the chance to review this book and read the synopsis I knew it was one I did not want to pass up. I am so glad I went with my gut. FYI, might need a box of tissue. Yeah I cried at a few of the parts.

Through its intricate twists and turns, Ultimate Sin tells the story of redemption and rebirth.

WOW. Let me start by saying, if you already have some sort of idea in mind as to how this book will end, throw it out the window because you will not see it coming. All I have to say is that the cover really makes sense now ;) and has such great meaning to the story. I’m the type of reader that has such an overactive imagination.
